During the Majin Boo saga we were introduced to the most powerful transformation of the “Super” level, the Super Saiyan 3. However, unlike the two previous forms, this is a transformation that until now is exclusive to Goku, since Vegeta was never able to reach it and then jump from Super Saiyan 2 level directly to the divine level.
The most interesting thing about this is that at a certain point in the Boo saga, Goku and Vegeta end up facing each other but Goku does not transform into Super Saiyan 3, holding his own level of power while remaining at the same level as Vegeta.
But after all, did Goku feel sorry for Vegeta not being able to reach the same level of power?
It is difficult to find the right answer to this question, but we can list some reasons why Goku preferred not to use his new level of power during the confrontation.
At first he probably did not want to hurt Vegeta’s feelings, who would probably be appalled to realize that he was in fact a level below Goku at that time.
It also has to be considered that when transforming into Super Saiyan 3, Goku would end up supplying more energy than would be sucked in by Majin Boo, accelerating his resuscitation and decreasing his time on earth.
However, in the front we discovered that Super Saiyan 3 was not all that after all, and that Vegeta’s sacrifice ended up doing a lot more damage to Majin Boo than Goku in his maximum form of power. So even at a lower level, Vegeta would have nothing to be ashamed of.
Dragon Ball Super is currently on hiatus. The anime ended in March 2018 with the end of the Tournament of Power.
Currently, the story continues in the manga, in addition to the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly released earlier this year and also a new film that is in the initial stage of production by Toei.
In this new phase, Goku and Vegeta are facing an ancient and very powerful enemy: Moro, the consumer of planets, a threat that could very well end Universe 7 in the blink of an eye.
