A Legendary Great Ape (黄金大猿, v, lit. Legendary Golden Great Ape, Legendary Oozaru) is an alternative and far stronger type of Great Ape and can be seen in Dragon Ball AF. It is attained by Saiyans who have a tail and are already in use of the Super Saiyan 5 form before looking at either a moon or a full planetary body. Aside from its fur being silver-colored and standing on end, its appearance is identical to that of a regular Great Ape. After a saiyan has control over this form they can materialize their spirit and fuse with it, then experience intense anger, sadness or grieving and then the saiyan will transform into the True Super Saiyan form.
The power of the Legendary Great Ape multiplies manyfold, which far surpasses that of a Golden Great Ape's in all areas. While in this state, the power and strength of a Saiyan increases drastically. They have the same abilities as the Golden Great Ape, only even more powerful and destructive, and their rage's peak goes so high, that they can cause severe, major destruction. Their berserk condition also increases to the point of becoming uncontrollable.
