Your Ki attack damage and speed get a 190% boost in this form, while non-Ki attacks gain a 95% boost in damage. You also gain +12 defense bonus. However, your Ki is drained exponentially, starting at -160 Ki/s, you also use 95% more Ki per attack, and when under 30% Ki, health degenerates moderately at -20HP/s. Once mastered, your Ki is lost exponentially, starting at -80Ki/s, and health degenerates minorly at -10 HP/s while under 30% Ki. While using Super Saiyan 3, your hair becomes extremely long and your aura is far larger than any other transformation. Like Super Saiyan 2, lightning encircles your body, but the color of the lightning is yellow while in your Super Saiyan 3 form.
