Prestige Class: Ascended Saiyan[edit]

Certain incredibly rare saiyan warriors are able to surpass their limits not only in regard to themselves, but to their own mortality. These saiyans ascend to an unheard of tier of power, being able to fight gods and myths alike. Few, if any, saiyans have been known to reach this level of unrivaled power.

The following class features take the place of the epic boons given by Past Level 20 (5e Variant Rule).


To qualify for multiclassing into the Ascended Saiyan class, you must meet these prerequisites:

  • You must either be a 20th level Saiyan Fighter, Variant (5e Class) or, much more suggested, a 30th level Z Fighter (5e Class).
  • You must be a Saiyan (5e Race)
  • Either your Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, or Wisdom must be at least 20.
  • You must either succeed 2 Wisdom saving throws as a Golden Oozaru or have 5 CR 18 or higher creatures gift you their power.

As a Ascended Saiyan you gain the following class features.

At 1st level, your ki point maximum increases by the amount listed in the Ki Points column of this class’s table. The number listed is the overall gain, not the individual increase per level.

Ki Beam[edit]

At 1st level, your well of ki becomes so great, even the smallest attack can spell death for lesser creatures. You may make your ki blasts attack every creature in a 30ft. + you flying speed line.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 2nd level, and again at 6th and 10th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. You can't increase an ability score above 30 using this feature.

Means of Ascendance[edit]

At 2nd level, you decide by what means you will ascend. You must choose between the Grand Tour, the Godly Battle, the Infernal Machine, or the Eternal Survivor, all detailed at the end of this class. You gain additional features at 4th, 7th, and 10th level.

Death Ball[edit]

At 3rd level, you can form a massive sphere of destruction from your own ki. You may charge a Death Ball each turn for 5 ki. For every round spent charging the ball, it gains 2d10 force damage. You can gather and control energy up to your Strength or Constitution score 2d10, whichever is higher, past which you must make a DC 15 + (number of d10 above your maximum) saving throw of the same ability or have the ball dissipate, losing all the energy stored inside. If you are attacked while controlling or charging a Death Ball, you must make a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw to avoid losing control of it. Losing control of it while charging results in it dissipating as described above.

When you launch the Death Ball, it moves at a pace of 30 + the amount of d10 controlled feet at the beginning of your turn. The Death Ball has a radius of 20ft, plus an additional 10ft per round charged after the first. You can choose to detonate the death ball at will, forcing all creatures and objects within the Death Ball's edge to attempt a DC 15 + your Ki effect modifier Dexterity or Wisdom saving throw, taking its damage on a failure or half as much damage on a success.

Metamoran Fusion[edit]

At 5th level, you may do the fusion dance with 1 other creature that has at least one type that you do, such as humanoid, who is within one size category of you.

Regardless of the outcome, you and the other creature become a single creature with features resembling both creatures clad in a vest and robe-like pants for 30 minutes. On a failure, the creature is a commoner. On a success, the single creature has the highest ability scores of each of its components, as well as access to each of their race and class features.

Fusion Attack[edit]

At 9th level, you gain an additional Saiyan Archetype feature. If you now have 2 techniques, such as the Final Flash and the Kamehameha or Masenko and Death Ball, you may charge and fire both simultaneously. If the archetype feature relies on another, such as Overflowing Power and Spirit Saiyan, you must take what it relies on instead. You must charge a fusion attack for 1.5x as long as the longest charge.

Ultimate Power[edit]

At 10th level, you have mastered the powers of both saiyans and gods. You gain one Means of Ascendance of your choice. If you now have 2, you may use one of each Means of Ascendance's transformation simultaneously regardless of what means you chose at 2nd level. If your Saiyan Archetype, Ki Fighter Style, or Advanced Training grants you a transformation, such as Legendary Super Saiyan or Do or Die, you may use them as a 3rd and 4th transformation.

Means of Ascendance[edit]

Grand Tour[edit]

The Grand Tour is a journey, both externally and internally, that a saiyan must make in order to unlock their complete potential as a saiyan. Such saiyans tend to be much fiercer than their godly counterparts, in part due to the harshness of their training, which never stops. Those who walk this path unearth the deepest depths of saiyan power.

Super Saiyan 4[edit]

At 2nd level, you have mastered the power of the golden oozaru. Super Saiyan 3 no longer drains ki each round, and Super Saiyan 1 and 2 no longer cost ki to transform into. In addition, you may transform into a Super Saiyan 4 as an action while in Super Saiyan 1 or 2, or as a bonus action while in Super Saiyan 3, for 5 ki.

For every 3, you’re unarmored defense increases by +1. The 7 Star Ball acts as 2 balls, and is always the last ball found.

Godly Battle[edit]

Saiyans who participate in the Godly Battle must clear their mind of being a saiyan, instead focusing on being a god.
