During transformation to Super Saiyan 3, the Saiyan's hair grows to the waist. In addition to the Saiyan's hair growth, the eyebrows disappear as the brow ridge becomes more prominent.
It is often a misconception that the eyes come to possess pupils. However, this only occurs with Goku's eyes in the anime.
Like the Super Saiyan 2 form, the Super Saiyan 3 aura releases blueish-white electrical bolts. Despite the substantial flaws of the Super Saiyan 3, it noticeably increases the physical abilities from Super Saiyan 2.
Son Goku revealed that he had first achieved the form while existing in the Other World. Goku's ability to maintain the form in the afterlife was unlimited, due to him not possessing the limitations of his living body. Upon returning to the living world, Goku's chi supply was severely reduced, so he could not maintain this form for extended periods of time. The fused half-Saiyan named Gotenks achieves the transformation after witnessing Goku's ascension into the third transformation. Goku notes later that even though Gotenks was a child, he was much more adept at maintaining the transformation than he was. In the sequel series Dragon Ball GT, Goku also uses the transformation after he had been transformed into a child, but his under-developed body lacked the necessary physique to sustain the form. As a result, his transformation could not be maintained efficiently and he was forced to revert to his regular form after only a few moments of transformation.
