Across the galaxy are a Warrior race known as Saiyans, who have learned to harness the life energy called ki, and forge it into a deadly weapon enhancer, using their own bodies as the weapon. These Saiyan Warriors are masters of the martial arts and hence are only hindered by the use of manufactured weapons and armors. A Saiyan Warrior's ki infuses them with many abilities, and anger and pain unlock the legendary Super Saiyan transformations that grants them phenomenal strength and agility.
Making a Saiyan Warrior
Saiyan Warriors have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Dexterity and Strength are very crucial to a Saiyan Warrior's fighting ability. Because Saiyan Warriors have no armor proficiencies, a Saiyan Warrior must rely on their Dexterity and Wisdom to completely fuel the Saiyan's AC, unless he has magical equipment. Also, because Saiyans are combat-oriented, a decent Constitution is more than helpful.
Race: Saiyan. (Note, for other races see Ki Warrior).
Starting Age: Complex.

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Saiyan Warrior.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Saiyan Warrior is proficient with unarmed strikes and proficient with greatsword, katana, longsword, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai and shuriken.
Saiyan Warriors are not proficient with any armors or shields-in fact, many of the Saiyan Warriors abilities require unfettered movement. When wearing armor, using a shield or carrying a medium or heavy load, a Saiyan Warrior loses his AC bonus as well as his fast movement and flurry of blows abilities.
Monk-like Abilities: The training of a Saiyan Warrior is much like that of a monk fighting with martial arts both unarmed and without armor. A Saiyan Warrior gains the unarmed damage, flurry of blows, land base speed, and Wisdom to AC as a monk of his Saiyan Warrior level. (See table 3-10: The Monk in the Player's Handbook.) A Saiyan Warrior's class levels stack with any monk levels for determining his unarmed damage, flurry of blows progression and unarmored speed bonus. A monk who becomes a Saiyan Warrior may continue advancing as a monk.
Unarmed Strike: Saiyan Warriors are highly trained at fighting unarmed, giving them considerable advantages when doing so. At 1st level, a Saiyan Warrior gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat. A Saiyan Warrior's attacks may be with either fist interchangeably or even from elbows, knees, or feet. This means that a Saiyan Warrior may even make unarmed strikes with his hands full; there is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a Saiyan Warrior striking unarmed. A Saiyan Warrior may thus apply his full-Strength bonus on damage rolls for all of his unarmed strikes.
Usually, a Saiyan Warrior's unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but he can choose to deal nonlethal damage instead with no penalty on his attack roll. He has the same choice to deal lethal or nonlethal damage while grappling. A Saiyan Warrior's unarmed strike is treated both as a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons (such as magic fang and magic weapon spells).
A Saiyan Warrior also deals more damage with his unarmed strikes than a normal person would, as shown on the table above. The unarmed damage on the table above is for Medium Saiyan Warriors. A Small Saiyan Warrior deals less damage than the amount given on the table above with his unarmed attacks, while a Large Saiyan Warrior deals more damage; see >>here<<
Ki Pool: A first-level Saiyan Warrior gets a ki pool of ki points. Most all of the Saiyan's ki abilities and special abilities have a ki point cost which is drawn from this pool. The pool goes up in total as the Saiyan gains levels and can be used throughout the day. After a Saiyan Warrior has expended his ki pool, he must sleep for 8 hours, or use the ki charge ability to regain his ki points. A Saiyan Warrior who has levels in other classes with a point system (i.e. Psionic power points, or variant Wizard with mana points), a ninja with a ki pool, etc, must always keep these two pools separate. A Saiyan Warrior gains bonus ki points as found on the chart >>here<<. Bonus ki points are derived from his Wisdom bonus.
Everytime a Saiyan Warrior mentally prepares himself to fight or use ki abilities he manifests his ki visibly. He essentially prepares his ki pool for use and he becomes 'charged up'. While charged up, a bluish white energy flows from his feet up to above his head following a vague outline of his body, making numerous flame-like spikes of energy as it rises and connects above his head. This aura can be suppressed at will as a free action, even while the Saiyan Warrior is actually fighting and using his ki pool.
Ki Familiarity: At first level, a Saiyan Warrior is familiar with how the life energy called ki works and has the ability to create and control his own ki in his body. At first level, he can use his ki to make glowing orbs out of his ki. From very tiny orbs floating above the palm of his hand to larger orbs that are as wide as his chest. These orbs cannot be used to attack or damage any type of creature or object and because the light is artificial it does not harm creatures who have light sensitivities or who are harmed by light.
Smaller orbs which cost 1 ki point to create and shed shadowy illumination out to 10 feet. Larger orbs spanning the width of the Saiyan Warrior's torso cost 5 ki points to create and shed bright illumination out 15 feet, and shadowy illumination 15 feet. These orbs are always spherical in shape when generated and can be dispersed as a free action. A ki orb has no weight and can be easily moved around with 1 free hand. These orbs are the building blocks of the ki volley.
Combat Style: At first level, a Saiyan Warrior must choose a combat style to focus his training on. This combat focus choice is either Offense, Defense, or Ki Abilities. For choosing offense at first level a Saiyan Warrior automatically gains Power Attack as a bonus feat. For choosing defense he gains Combat Expertise and for choosing Ki at first level he gains Stunning Fist as a bonus feat. A Saiyan Warrior need not meet any prerequisites for these feats. This choice is the deciding factor in which benefits are available when the levels for style focus come to them. Once chosen, this choice may never be altered.
Style Focus: At various intervals in his career a Saiyan Warrior's superiority in combat shows more and more. At the intervals of 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 13th, and 17th levels a Saiyan Warrior may choose a bonus feat or special ability from the lists below as appropriate for his Combat Style choice. The character must meet any of the prerequisites to qualify for the feat as normal in order to take it. The list of feats and abilities available depends on whether at first level the Saiyan selected Offense, Defense, or Ki Abilities as his focus.
- Offense: At each of the previously indicated levels above, the Saiyan Warrior may choose a bonus feat from the following list. Axiomatic Strike1, Blind-Fight, Brutal Strike3, Cleave, Clever Wrestling1, Combat Intuition2, Combat Reflexes, Combat Tactician3, Danger Sense2, Deft Opportunist2, Earths Embrace1, Eagle Claw Attack1, Expert Tactician2, Extra Stunning1, Fists of Iron1, Flying Kick1, Freezing the Lifeblood1, Great Cleave, Hold the Line1, Improved Bullrush, Improved Critical (Unarmed), Improved Grapple, Improved Initiative, Improved Overrun, Improved Sunder, Kiai Shout1, Greater Kiai Shout1, Leap Attack2, Prone Attack1, Power Critical (Unarmed)1, Roundabout Kick1, Snatch Arrows, Stunning Fist, Versatile Unarmed Strike3, Water Splitting Stone3, Weakening Touch1, Weapon Finesse, Weapon Focus (Unarmed), Weapon Specialization (Unarmed), Greater Weapon Focus (Unarmed), and Greater Weapon Specialization (Unarmed) or Zen Archery.
- Defense: At each of the previously indicated levels, the Saiyan Warrior may choose a bonus feat from the following list. Acrobatic Strike3, Bounding Assault3, Clever Wrestling1, Close-Quarters Fighting1, Combat Reflexes, Combat Tactician3, Cometary Collision3, Danger Sense2, Defensive Strike1, Defensive Sweep3, Defensive Throw1, Deft Opportunist2, Diehard, Dive for Cover2, Dodge, Eagle Claw Attack1, Endurance, Extra Stunning1, Faster Healing1, Hear the Unseen2, Improved Combat Expertise1, Improved Disarm, Improved Diversion2, Improved Feint, Improved Grapple, Improved Toughness1, Improved Trip, Karmic Strike1, Melee Evasion3, Mobility, Pain Touch1, Prone Attack1, Quick Reconnoiter2, Rapid Blitz3, Rapid Stunning1, Run, Snatch Arrows, Spring Attack, Toughness, Versatile Unarmed Strike3, Water Splitting Stone3, Weapon Finesse, Weakening Touch1, Whirlwind Attack and Zen Archery1.

- 3 - Feat found in The Players Handbook II (page 72)
- Ki: Saiyan Warriors that choose ki ability as their Combat Style at 1st level can choose from a new ki ability no higher than his current maximum grade of ki ability available. A Saiyan Warrior may choose a previously unchosen Least ki ability at 2nd and 5th level, a Least or Lesser ki ability at 7th and 9th level, a Least, Lesser or Greater ki ability at 13th level, and any Least, Lesser, Greater or Master ki ability at 17th level. Once a Saiyan Warrior has chosen a new ki ability, this choice may never be altered.
Ki Abilities: At 2nd level, a Saiyan Warrior receives access to a repertoire of attacks and defensive abilities known as Ki Abilities that require him to focus the ki life energy that suffuses his body and soul. A Saiyan Warrior can use any Ki Ability that he knows at will with the following qualifications. All Ki Abilities act as invocations, so using any of these abilities is a standard action that provokes an attack of opportunity unless otherwise noted. Such ki abilities can be disrupted, just as a spell can be ruined during casting. A Saiyan Warrior is entitled to a Concentration check to successfully use the Ki Ability if he is hit by an attack while performing the move, just as a spellcaster would be. A Saiyan Warrior can choose to use a Ki Ability defensively, by making a successful Concentration check to avoid provoking attacks of opportunity. A Saiyan Warrior's caster level with his Ki Abilities is equal to his Saiyan Warrior class level.
The four grades of Ki Abilities, in order of their relative power, are Least, Lesser, Greater, and Master. A Saiyan Warrior begins with knowledge of one ability, which must be of the lowest grade (Least) when he unlocks this ability at second level. When a Saiyan Warrior gains access to Lesser Ki Abilities at 6th level he may choose 1 ability from the Lesser category or 2 Least abilities. At 10th level when he gains access to Greater Ki Abilities he may choose 1 ability from the Greater category or 2 Lesser or Least abilities. When he gains Master Ki Abilities at 16th level, he may choose 1 Master Ki Ability or 2 from any previous category.
Each grade of Ki Ability has its own "power level" which replaces the spell level modifier for the save DC of the ability. These bonuses are +3 for least, +5 for lesser, +7 for greater, and +9 for master. The save DC for a Ki Ability (if it allows a save) is 10 + power level of the ki ability + the Saiyan Warrior's Wisdom modifier. As a Saiyan Warrior gains levels, he learns new Ki Abilities as summarized on the class table above, and a list and complete description of all available Ki Abilities can be found at the bottom of this page or on a separate page, >>here<<.
Ki Abilities are not spells and as such are not subject to spell resistance. Some Ki Abilities are subject to power resistance however, and such Ki Abilities will state they are subject to power resistance in their description. Since Ki Abilities are invocations, and not magical spells, a Saiyan Warrior cannot take metamagic feats. He can, however, benefit from the Ability Focus feat (see page 303 of the Monster Manual), as well as from feats that emulate metamagic effects for spell-like abilities, such as Quicken Spell-Like Ability and Empower Spell-Like Ability (see pages 303 and 304 of the Monster Manual) and Ki Abilities work in the presence of an antimagic effect or even anti-psionic effects.
Ki Volley: When a Saiyan Warrior gains this ability at 2nd level, they have learned to fire the orbs of ki that they can create with their ki familiarity ability into a small fireball shaped projectiles. Shooting this ki volley takes 2 ki points per shot. A Saiyan Warrior may only fire 1 ki volley per round as a standard action. These ki volleys are ranged touch attacks dealing an amount of damage equal to his current raw unarmed strike damage, with a Reflex saving throw for half damage. They have a range of "medium" (100 ft + 10 ft /level). The DC for the save is 10 + ½ the Saiyan Warrior's class level + the Saiyan Warrior's Dexterity modifier.
Note: This damage cannot be increased by any temporary magic items or buffs that can be removed or wear off, but can be increased by any feat or permanent effect that the character will keep indefinitely that makes a permanent addition to his unarmed strike damage. This means should he lose that feat or permanent magical effect later (like say he has a magic buff that had permanent cast on it, and then later goes into an anti-magic field or becomes disjunctioned), then the addition to his Ki Volley damage would be removed as well.
Ki Deflection: At 3rd level, a Saiyan Warrior's familiarity with ki allows them some subtle defenses against ranged ki and energy attacks. A Saiyan Warrior who makes a successful Reflex save against any ki or ranged energy attacks used on them (Arcane, Fire, Ice, Divine, Shadow, etc, but not acid) may choose to deflect or resist the attack instead of dodging it. A Saiyan Warrior who makes a successful Reflex save against any ranged energy attack may deflect the energy away from himself as though using the deflect arrows feat. A Saiyan Warrior may deflect as many energy attacks per round as his maximum number of attacks of opportunity per round and may only deflect ki volleys that he makes a successful Reflex save against. Doing this does not count as one of his attacks of opportunity for the round. Energy attacks may never be caught and kept like arrows in the snatch arrows feat.
When an opposing Saiyan Warrior has the Beam Blast ability and uses it to make a beam of energy instead of an orb, if the Saiyan Warrior makes a successful Reflex save he may either fire a return blast as an immediate action (this is called a beam battle), or coat his hands in his own ki energy in order to put both hands out and stop the beam in its tracks without exploding it. If this takes place before his turn, then he must spend his full turn this round resolving the beam battle. If he catches the attack after his turn this round, then the beam remains unresolved until the next round.
To resolve a beam battle, each Saiyan Warrior must choose an amount of power points to spend during their respective turns in the same round as a full round action. The attacker for pushing his beam forward and the defending Saiyan Warrior on how much ki to shield his hands in order to resist the push. A Saiyan Warrior can choose to spend no more than a maximum of 1 ki point per Saiyan Warrior level on this check per round. Then at the end of the round the amounts they spent are compared for the results of the progress.
If both Saiyan Warriors use within 1 point of ki from each other, then nothing changes for that round, and points must be spent again next round. If the defending Saiyan Warrior uses 2 or more ki points than the attacker used, he can either deflect the beam in a straight line to the southwest or southeast behind himself and it strikes the next creature or object in its path as though that creature or object were the intended target, or the defender may push the beam back on the attacker. In this case the attacker cannot catch his own attack again and takes the 1/2 of the beam damage.
If the attacking Saiyan Warrior spends 2 or more points than the defender used, then the beam breaks through the defending Saiyan Warrior's defenses and hits the defending Saiyan Warrior for full damage. In either case, the Saiyan Warrior receiving the damage is not entitled to any Reflex saves to avoid any damage. These same rules apply to when 2 Saiyan Warriors both fire ki beams at each other in the same round.
Uncanny Dodge (Ex): At 3rd level, a Saiyan Warrior retains his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if he is caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, he still loses his Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. If a Martial Artist already has Uncanny Dodge from a different class, he automatically gains Improved Uncanny Dodge (see below) instead.
Awesome Blow At 4th level, a Saiyan Warrior gains the custom feat Awesome Blow as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet the prerequisites.
Ki Strike: At 4th level, a Saiyan Warrior gains the ki strike ability, as the monk's ability of the same name. (See Ki Strike, page 41 in the Player's Handbook). The only difference between the two is that when a Saiyan Warrior reaches 8th level, the Saiyan Warrior's unarmed strikes can be treated as chaotic for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction if the Saiyan is chaotic. Then, at 13th level, the Saiyan Warrior's fists are also treated as either good or evil based on his alignment. If the Saiyan is good, then his unarmed strikes are considered good for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. If the Saiyan is evil, his unarmed strikes are considered evil for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. If the Saiyan Warrior is neutral, he may have his choice of either one. At 18th level, the Saiyan Warrior's unarmed strikes are considered adamantine weapons for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction and bypassing any object's hardness, as a monk's ability of the same name.
Evasion: At 5th level and higher, a Saiyan Warrior can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If he makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save (such as a red dragon's fiery breath or a fireball), he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the Saiyan Warrior is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless Saiyan Warrior (such as one who is unconscious or paralyzed) does not gain the benefit of evasion. If a Martial Artist already has Evasion from a different class, he automatically gains Improved Evasion (see below) instead.
Super Saiyan: Upon reaching 6th level, a Saiyan Warrior has reached a breaking point in his training, and he is capable of ascending to a power known as Super Saiyan. Reaching 6th level only gives the Saiyan Warrior the chance to try to transform into a Super Saiyan; it is not an automatic achievement. All of the Super Saiyan transformations happen for their first time in response to a need, not a desire. At any point after reaching 6th level, the first transformation to Super Saiyan occurs involuntarily at the DM's discretion. When the Saiyan Warrior has reached his natural limits and is 'overcome' with intense emotions (usually anger/frustration/helplessness/hopelessness), he must make a Will save (DC 20) in order to turn into a Super Saiyan for the first time. Once a Saiyan has turned Super Saiyan, the Saiyan Warrior must then make an immediate Fortitude check (DC 20) to sustain the form longer than the brief moment in the round that they achieved it. If successful, the Saiyan does not need any further checks of any kind to sustain the form ever again. If they fail the Fortitude check, they must start from the beginning again no sooner than 1 round later, but the DC for both saves goes down by 2 for each time tried unsuccessfully.
Note: The saves are only required on the first transformation, and once it has been made, a Saiyan can become a Super Saiyan at any time of their own free will as a free action, but only on their turn. The Saiyan Warrior can also be overcome by intense emotion and voluntarily make the choice to not turn Super Saiyan, however, if they choose to do so, a Saiyan must wait at least 24 hours to try again, at which time they must meet the requirements again. A Saiyan Warrior can never lose the ability to turn Super Saiyan, regardless of alignment shifts or actions.
When the Saiyan Warrior makes the transformation, his hair and eyebrows turn bright gold in color and his pupils and irises turn a bright almost glowing sea green. Their muscles bulge slightly, and their now golden hair stands more straight up than it did before. The Saiyan's ki aura turns into a radiant golden light of power that constantly flows up from their feet like an opaque flame, making their hair and clothes wave lightly almost like it were in a slight wind. The Saiyan can voluntarily suppress this aura at any time as a free action, even when it's not their turn, though they still retain their golden hair, eyebrows, and green pupils regardless until they revert to their normal state, losing the bonuses granted by the transformation.
Although it is hard to achieve the power of a Super Saiyan, the rewards are well worth it. The Saiyan's strength, speed, and agility are increased. This increase gives a Super Saiyan +8 strength, +8 dexterity, and damage reduction 2/−. (Note that these stat bonuses are considered a "enhancement" bonus for determining what it stacks with). A Saiyan Warrior immediately loses all stat and speed bonuses given from the Super Saiyan state once they revert to their normal form.
The Super Saiyan transformation takes its toll on the Saiyan's body. A Saiyan Warrior that does not have at least a +1 constitution modifier may not obtain any of the Super Saiyan transformations until they have a raw 12 or higher constitution. At the beginning of the transformation, the Saiyan Warrior must pay 10 points of ki, which sustains the Super Saiyan transformation for the first hour and must pay an additional 5 points of ki at the beginning of each following hour. If a Saiyan Warrior ever reverts back to his natural state due to lack of ki points, he is left fatigued until he can gain 30 minutes of rest. A Saiyan Warrior who voluntarily reverts to his natural state before losing all ki points takes no penalty.

Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): At 7th level and higher, a Martial Artist can no longer be flanked, and opponents gain no benefit from doing so. This defense denies a rogue the ability to sneak attack the Martial Artist by flanking him, unless the attacker has at least four more rogue levels than the target has Martial Artist levels. If a character already has uncanny dodge (see above) from a second class, the character automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead, and the levels from the classes that grant uncanny dodge stack to determine the minimum level a rogue must be to flank the character.
Improved Evasion: Gained at 9th level, this ability works like evasion, except that while the Saiyan Warrior still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks such as a dragon's breath weapon or a fireball, he henceforth takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless Saiyan Warrior (such as one who is unconscious or paralyzed) does not gain the benefit of Improved Evasion.
Super Saiyan 2: Upon reaching 15th level, a Saiyan Warrior gains the ability to access the second power level of the Super Saiyan form. At any point after reaching 15th level, when the Saiyan Warrior is overcome by intense emotion, the first transformation to Super Saiyan 2 occurs involuntarily at the DM's discretion in response to a need, not a desire, and the Saiyan Warrior simply makes a DC 22 Fortitude save. If successful, the Saiyan Warrior transforms into a Super Saiyan 2. If they fail this save, and they are still overcome with emotion the next round, they may try again.
To transform into a Super Saiyan 2 for the first time, a Saiyan Warrior must take 1 full round action doing nothing but focusing his energy and focusing on the transformation. During the full round action, a strong wind blows in all directions centered on and blowing away from the Saiyan Warrior (see Strong Wind on page 95 of the Dungeon Master's Guide). Any Saiyan Warrior with the Ki Sense ability who has the same or less hit dice than the transforming Saiyan Warrior within 1 mile must make a DC 28 will save or be dazed for the duration of the transformation by the power being generated. Any Saiyan Warrior that has seen a Super Saiyan 2 or higher transformation before gains a +10 bonus to this save. Upon transforming into a Super Saiyan 2, a shock wave of power is sent forth from the Saiyan involuntarily; this shockwave deals 2d4 points force damage to anything within 5 feet, and 1d4 damage to anything within 10 feet. The force is so tremendous that ground made of rock or stone may or may not break, crack, or even rupture (DM's discretion based on condition of stone, rock, or another surface).
The second level of Super Saiyan looks the same as the first, with the exception that their golden hair is a little longer and is pushed a little more upright in its shape than from the first form. Exactly how it is different varies from Saiyan to Saiyan based on their hairstyle. Also, while in the Super Saiyan 2 form, because of the amount of energy being channeled and focused, a Saiyan has little random arcs of electricity coursing around them. This electricity does not harm the Saiyan Warrior or his opponent, even if the opponent is using unarmed strikes or grapples.
Example of Super Saiyan 2:
While in the Super Saiyan 2 transformation, a Saiyan Warrior receives the following in place of their previous Super Saiyan bonuses: +8 strength, +8 dexterity, +40 land base speed, damage reduction 5/− and energy resistance electricity 5. In addition, while transformed as a Super Saiyan 2 the Saiyan Warrior gains an additional 2 attacks of opportunity per round and does not provoke attacks of opportunity for moving through an opponent's threat area. However, he does still provoke an attack of opportunity for attempting to move into a square occupied by an opponent as normal. (Note: If the Saiyan Warrior has chosen Ki Flying as a special ability, its fly speed is also increased by 40 while in the Super Saiyan 2 form.) A Saiyan immediately loses all stat, speed, and other benefits or bonuses given from the Super Saiyan 2 state once they either revert to their normal form or transform into a different form.
While it does have its benefits, the Super Saiyan 2 form takes its toll on the Saiyan's body and takes an immediate 20 points from their ki pool per transformation they make a day, which sustains the Super Saiyan 2 transformation for the first hour. The Saiyan Warrior must pay an additional 10 ki points at the beginning of each following hour. If the Saiyan Warrior does not have enough ki points to pay the upkeep, the Saiyan Warrior involuntarily reverts back to his normal state, his hair slumps back down to its normal position and color, his eyebrows and pupils go back to normal as well, and he becomes fatigued immediately and loses all stat, speed, and other granted abilities given from the Super Saiyan 2 form.
Timeless Body (Ex): Upon attaining 17th level, a Saiyan Warrior no longer takes penalties to his ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that he has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue, and the Saiyan Warrior still dies of old age when his time is up.
Super Saiyan 3: Upon reaching 19th level, a Saiyan Warrior gains the ability to access the third power level of the Super Saiyan form. The third level of Super Saiyan looks similar to the first two, but slightly different. Their golden hair is now extremely long, reaching all the way down to the Saiyan's very low back area. The Saiyan's golden eyebrows completely disappear and the area where the Saiyan's eyebrows would normally be is contorted into a very serious or angered look. Also, like the second form, because of the amount of energy being channeled and focused, a Saiyan Warrior has random arcs of electricity coursing around them. This electricity does not harm the Saiyan or his opponent, even if the opponent is using unarmed strikes. This form of Super Saiyan, unlike the others, can be obtained at any point after reaching level 19 by just training and attempting to transform and make a DC 25 fortitude save. There is no emotional component required for a Super Saiyan 3 transformation.
A Saiyan Warrior must take 3 full-round actions doing nothing but focusing his energy and focusing on the transformation. While focusing, the Saiyan Warrior is flat-footed. During those 3 full-round actions, a windstorm-strength wind blows in all directions centered on and blowing away from the Saiyan Warrior for all 3 rounds that they focus their energy (see Windstorm on page 95 of the Dungeon Master's Guide).
Example of Super Saiyan 3:
If a Saiyan Warrior is hit while trying to transform, they must make a concentration check (DC = damage dealt) or lose their focus and the transformation fails. They remain in the state they started in and must start from the beginning again to transform. After 3 full-round actions spent transforming, beginning on the first person's action in the fourth round, the wind is stopped and the Saiyan Warrior is transformed into a Super Saiyan 3.
While in the Super Saiyan 3 transformation, a Saiyan Warrior receives the following in place of any of their previous Super Saiyan bonuses: +16 strength, +16 dexterity, +60 land base speed, damage reduction 10/− and energy resistance, electricity 10 and a +8 bonus to intimidate checks. (Note: If the Saiyan has chosen Ki Flying as a special ability, his fly speed is also increased by 60 while in the Super Saiyan 3 form.) A Saiyan immediately loses all stat, speed, and other benefits or bonuses given from the Super Saiyan 3 state once they either revert to their normal form or transform into a different form.
While it does have its benefits, the Super Saiyan 3 form takes a harsh toll on the Saiyan's body, more so than the other forms, and takes 30 points from their ki pool per transformation they make a day, which powers the transformation for only 1 minute. After the minute is up, the Saiyan Warrior must pay an additional 5 ki points at the beginning of every round (before the initiative sequence) while transformed. If the Saiyan Warrior does not have enough ki points to pay the upkeep, the Saiyan Warrior involuntarily reverts back to his normal state, his hair slumps back down to its normal length, position and color, his eyebrows and pupils go back to normal as well, and he becomes fatigued and immediately loses all stats, speed, and granted abilities given from the Super Saiyan 3 form.
Perfect Self At 20th level, a Saiyan Warrior becomes a magical creature. He is forevermore treated as an outsider (Shapechanger, Native) rather than as a humanoid for the purpose of spells and magical effects. Additionally, the Saiyan Warrior gains damage reduction 10/magic at all times, which allows him to ignore the first 10 points of damage from any attack made by a nonmagical weapon or by any natural attack made by a creature that doesn’t have similar damage reduction. Unlike other outsiders, the Saiyan Warrior can still be brought back from the dead as if he were a member of his previous creature type.

Super Saiyan God: At 21st level a Saiyan Warrior gains the ability to become a Super Saiyan God. To achieve this, a Saiyan Warrior must perform a ceremony with 5 other Saiyan Warriors. The group gathers in a circle holding hands and then all 6 produce their ki aura and then all 5 other Saiyans Warriors all grant their entire days ki pool points to the Saiyan Warrior. These bonus ki points are temporary points that are lost if not used 1 hour later. By completing this ceremony, the amount of pure life force within the Saiyan Warrior's body unlocks a new form and enables him to ascend into God-hood and he permanently gains half a Divine Rank, so his effective divine rank is 0.5 granting him some of the powers of divine beings. Note: Saiyan Warriors do not gain portfolios, the ability to grant spells or a divine domain. The only gain the benefits listed below.
As a divine entity the Saiyan Warrior's hit points increase to always grant him the maximum amount for his hit dice at all times even when not transformed. He gains a +1 Divine bonus to AC and also gains his Charisma bonus (if positive) as a deflection bonus on to AC. He no longer automatically fails any check on a natural roll of 1. He gains immunity to all Energy Drain, Ability Drain and Ability Damage. He has Energy Resistance 15/Cold and 15/Electric at all times. Hes immune to all natural and magical diseases, poisons, stunning, paralysis and instant death effects. He no longer ages and cannot die from natural causes. He no longer needs to eat, sleep or breath and can survive in the vacuum of space, though he does still need to meditate for 2 hours to regain ki pool points daily.
A Saiyan Warrior still spends his normal time looking like himself, but when he activates Super Saiyan God mode unlike other Super Saiyan transformations he does not have the normal golden hair, eyebrows or green/blue eyes. Instead he retains his normal base form appearance but slightly leaner than normal. His hair, eyebrows and pupils turn a dark magenta red and he has a small sky blue outline of ki.
In his transformed state the Super Saiyan God gains +30 Strength, +30 Dexterity, and +80 feet to both land and flight base speed. Damage reduction 15/− fast healing 5, and energy resistance 20/Electricity (total) and a +6 bonus to intimidate checks. This form costs 50 points to enter and for the first minute of the transformation. The form costs an additional 20 points of ki for each minute thereafter. Other Saiyan Warriors with ki sense cannot sense the Super Saiyan God's ki at all while hes transformed.
Example: Super Saiyan God:
God Ki Ability: When a Saiyan Warrior gains a God Ki ability, he may either take 2 abilities from any of the previous Least, Lesser, Greater or Master Ki abilities, or may gain 1 new God Ki ability listed below.
Darkvision 120 feet
Spell Resistance 20
Immunity to Electricity
Immunity to Cold
Immunity to Fire
Bonus Feat: At 21st level and every other level thereafter, a Saiyan Warrior gains any bonus feat that she meets the prerequisites for.
Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan: Upon reaching 25th level, a Saiyan Warrior has learned to control her God ki enough that she now gains the ability to utilize her Super Saiyan transformation and God ki together. By doing so a Saiyan Warrior activates his God ki and instantly transforms into a Super Saiyan right after all in the span of a moment. Doing so gives the newly transformed "Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan" the physical appearance they possessed as a Super Saiyan 1, but with a sky blue hair, eyebrows and bright blue eyes and sky blue ki.
In this form the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan gains +40 Strength, +40 Dexterity, and +100 feet to both land and flight base speed. Damage reduction 15/− fast healing 5, and energy resistance 20/Electricity (total) and a +6 bonus to intimidate checks. This form costs 60 points to enter and for the first minute of the transformation. The form costs an additional 30 points of ki for each minute thereafter. Other Saiyan Warriors with ki sense cannot sense the Super Saiyan God's ki at all while hes transformed.
Example: Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan:
Greater God Ki Ability: When a Saiyan Warrior gains a Greater God Ki ability, he may either take 3 abilities from any of the previous Least, Lesser, Greater, Master Ki or God Ki abilities, or may gain 1 new Greater God Ki ability listed below.
Damage Reduction 10/− at all times
Spell Resistance equal to 5 + hit dice
Immunity to Disintegration
Immunity to Mind Affecting Effects
Immunity to Transformations
Immunity to Acid
Playing a Saiyan Warrior
Adventures: Because Saiyan Warriors are so focused on perfecting their ki, many adventure purely to become stronger. Others that are very good at heart will sometimes step up as champions for those who cannot fight. But Saiyans who are evil and have corrupt hearts use their power to oppress and destroy. Characteristics: A Saiyan Warrior is excellent in combat. When in combat the Saiyan Warriors shun the use of manufactured weapons. Thanks to their training they put themselves under, a Saiyan Warrior (like a monk) can strike as hard as if they were armed, and faster than a Warrior with a sword.
Alignment: Saiyan Warriors are chaotic in nature because they are free spirited and resent restrictions. They usually live on the outskirts of towns and try to avoid contact with authority figures and usually have very little use for any kinds of laws or regulations.
Religion: Saiyan Warriors tend to worship deities that promote or have at least some associated with the domains of war, battle, strength, and/or chaos, also any deities that have anything to do with the promotion of self betterment or enlightenment would be popular choices among Saiyan Warriors. Saiyan Warriors of good alignments are drawn towards deities such as Heironeous and Pelor, neutral Saiyan Warriors often like either Kord or Fharlanghn, and evil Saiyan Warriors usually choose deities such as Gruumsh or Hextor.
Background: All Saiyan Warriors are Saiyans, and hence all have the tie with one another. In places where Saiyan tribes are abound they are more competitive on a group basis and stick to their tribes and are loyal to those tribes, as where Saiyans who live in places where there are no, or little tribes tend to be competitive with one another on a person-to-person basis, but usually feel compelled to aid and protect other Saiyans when it comes down to the last gun being fired so to speak.
Races: Saiyans are the only race that can be Saiyan Warriors.
Other Classes: Saiyans get along best with combat-oriented classes, and sometimes wish to test members of those classes to see who is stronger.
Combat: Saiyan Warriors are primarily melee damage dealing combatants that use ki abilities to augment thier abilities while they fight. Saiyan Warriors will often begin battles by throwing ki volleys until the opponent closes into range and then rely on thier advance martial arts training to dispatch foes at close range.
Advancement: Most Saiyan Warriors pursue this class to the exclusion of all others, tho this is not a requirement. Saiyan Warriors who do branch off to another profession or career would likely seek out ones that enhance some aspect of their training, be it thier martial arts training, their ki manipulation or maybe a specific branch off, such as a Saiyan Warrior looking to be a hired killer could take levels in Assassin or Ninja.
Saiyan Warriors in the World
|“||I wasn’t sure how long I could sustain the effort without breaking in two. It seemed like the only thing holding my body together was my one desire, to be better than Kakarott. At times I thought I was losing my mind. Why couldn't I obtain what Kakarott had obtained?! It didn’t make any sense. It was infuriating… and it was my fury that kept me alive.||”|
|—Vegeta, Saiyan Prince|
Daily Life: Saiyan Warriors spend most every waking moment of everyday training to become better, to test their limits and go beyond them. Saiyan Warriors are constantly practicing their battle techniques or putting them to use on the battlefield. A Saiyan Warrior is never happier than while in the midst of a life and death battle.
Notables: One Saiyan child named Kakarott was sent to earth from planet Vegeta where he was meant to take over the planet, but while still a baby he fell into a canyon and hit his head giving him amnesia. He was renamed Goku by the old man who raised him and trained him in martial arts. Goku grew up to become a champion of good and defender of the innocent. Goku also went down as the most accomplished Super Saiyans of all time.
Organizations: Saiyan Warriors that band together generally do so in no more than groups of 5 (squadron) to 10 (group). These Saiyan Warriors are always loyal and protective of one another but are also very competitive with each other at the same time.
NPC Reactions: NPC will react to a base form Saiyan Warrior as they would any other character in the game. Most NPC's find the Saiyan Warriors hair and tail to be bizarre but otherwise see them as humans and react to them accordingly. NPC's that see a Saiyan Warrior transforming or transformed into a Super Saiyan are generally fearful of, and intimidated by the Saiyan Warrior. Such NPC's may even flee a transformed Saiyan Warrior even if doing so may cause a commotion.
Saiyan Warrior Lore
Characters with abilities such as Bardic Lore, or with ranks in Knowledge (Outerspace), or Knowledge (Universe) or similar knowledge skills can research Saiyan Warriors to learn more about them.

|20||A Saiyan's potential for power is tied to their emotions, and when distressed or made angry in stressful situations Saiyan Warriors can trigger transformations to various levels of power called Super Saiyan, each giving the Saiyan enhanced strength, speed and agility.|
|30||Those which make this result can learn about specific Saiyan Warriors, their location, motives, lore about them, and recent activities.|
Saiyan Warriors in the Game
Adaptation: The techniques taught by the Saiyan Warrior class could be a tree of monk martial arts and could be taught at monasteries where large groups of Saiyan Warriors all train together to learn to use their ki and master the art of self-discipline.
Sample Encounter: The adventures are asked to go and stop Toma, a Saiyan Warrior who is the leader of a group of local bandits who has been terrorizing their village and taking their resources and money, killing anyone who opposes them. They give the adventurers directions to Toma's hideout and offer what small reward they can.

Trying to translate superhero-like abilities into a balanced system like D20 is not easy without either sacrificing balance in the game or accuracy to the source content. The base abilities above for the Super Saiyan transformations attempt to lean more in the favor of accuracy to the series than in just balance. If you like this class, but would like a more balanced version of Super Saiyans that more readily fits into the D20 SRD content, or if you're playing an epic level campaign and feel these stats don't favor the series enough, then consider using the alternative bonuses >>here<< for the Super Saiyan transformations. For those wondering, rules for Saiyans as a race and rules for the Oozaru monkey form can be found here
