Super Saiyan God is the latest and most powerful Super Saiyan form in the Dragon Ball canon. It is a very rare form and surpasses the previous Super Saiyan forms.
Super Saiyan God is the most powerful form that only a pure-hearted Saiyan could ever achieve it. To be able to attain that form, six saiyans must together is required. Unlike the other Super Saiyan transformations, this one is peaceful and serene, although it's capabilities are devastating and destructive.
At first glance, the Super Saiyan God form may look similar to the Kaio-ken technique. But it actually have a lot of differences:
|Super Saiyan God||Kaio-ken|
|Hair is full red||Normal black eyes with slight reddish highlights|
|Eyes are full red and glowing||Normal Black Eyes|
|There is a thin fiery aura around the body||No thin aura around the body|
|The full aura consists of fiery glow orbs||No glow orbs|
|The Aura/Form color is Fiery Red/Orange||The Aura/Form color is Crimson/Red Violet|
The form makes the skin grow darker as if tanned. The hair grows longer and spikier a bit, and the body gets leaner. The Super Saiyan God's aura is explosive and blazing.
It is said that once long ago in Planet Vegeta, a Super Saiyan God appeared to stop the evil Saiyans, but was unsuccessful because of the form's time limit. The Kais, or the guardians of the quadrants of the universe, might have witnessed the said transformation (particularly Kaio-Sama/King Kai). Then they tried to mimic the form by creating special technique not only limited for the Saiyans. Thus the Kaio-Ken is invented, with it's appearance and effects is similar to the Super Saiyan God form, but only has limited use and is much weaker.

The forms power is great enough to grant Goku a fight with the God of Destruction himself, Lord Bills, in somewhat even terms. The form is is currently the strongest in the Dragon Ball Multiverse, as Lord Bills defeating most of the Z Fighters being in their most powerful state. The form also allows the user to sense godly ki, and absorbing attacks can be done too by consuming ki.
However, the form has drawbacks: there is a time limit and the form is temporary unlike the other Super Saiyan transformations. The form consumes much power from the user that it exhausts them fairly quick, but it was speculated by Lord Bills that this can also be overcome. The form can only be attained once, but, in Goku's case, he absorbed and retain most of the form's power, allowing him to fight Bills in his base form and Super Saiyan form.
Super Saiyan God is the myths among myths do to only Shenron and Oracle Fish knowing of the warrior race, the Saiyans, the mightiest beings in the universe. The power to obtain this legendary form is of six good-hearted Saiyans must be infused for one of them to achieve this legendary form.
The Super Saiyan God, is without a doubt, the strongest Super Saiyan form yet in the Dragon Ball Multiverse. Being a form that surpassed the Super Saiyan 3 by several degrees, it has it's set of enhancements and powers.
Gods's Ki can only be felt and sensed by a God himself. Any being lesser than a god will not comprehend it's power. With the Super Saiyan God transformation, Goku felt the godly ki as well as Bills's and Whis's.
The form greatly increased Goku's power so great that he was able to go toe to toe with Bills. It's power greatly surpasses the previous Super Saiyan forms in great margin
The form also enhances speed as great as it increases strength. This was proven when Goku fought with Bills, whereas when he was in his Super Saiyan 3 form, he can't even tag or faze him at all.
