Broly Fury JUS
Broly (ブロリー Burorī) is the son of Paragus and the misguided main antagonist of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. He is the latest of the Legendary Super Saiyans, a demonic Saiyan warrior who appears every thousand years. Because of his extreme power, he was stranded on the planet Vampa by King Vegeta, where he was raised by his father until rescued years later by the Frieza Force.
He is often referred to as Broly: BR in video games and other media to differentiate him from the Broly in the Dragon Ball Z movies.
It was suggested to Akira Toriyama by his editor to have Broly appear in the movie due to his overwhelming popularity. After watching the previous Broly movies, Toriyama decided that Broly could be quite interesting if he rearranged some things about him. This incarnation of Broly is Toriyama’s attempt to add him into the “Dragon Ball canon“. Toriyama also made changes to his behavior from a vengeful person to a very confused and kind-hearted character.
While Toriyama created most of the character, he chose to ignore the Legendary Super Saiyan form when creating his design, and so Naohiro Shintani decided to create his own design of the form to implement it.
While retaining the same general concept, Broly’s appearance differs from his Dragon Ball Z movies counterpart. While still tall, he is noticeably shorter and is more muscular while having noticeably darker skin next to his counterpart. Broly’s hairstyle is also different. While spiky and reaching his upper back the same, his counterpart had hair split down in the middle while Broly’s hair is more overgrown. He has a scar across his left cheek, left bicep, and an “X”-shaped scar on his left pectoral reaching over his left shoulder and two smaller ones on the upper-left of his abdomen, which is his most notable feature. His standard facial expression also appears sterner than in the counterpart (who appeared melancholic when not unhinged). As a child, he lets his tail hang out but as an adult, it was removed by Paragus.
As a child, he wore a standard Saiyan armor. It had a full-body model with dark-colored chest protection and light-colored outward-pointing pads on his shoulders and at the hips that hang over his upper legs. He also wore dark jumpsuit shorts and light boots with dark legging and also dark armguards. He also at some point gets a shock collar on his neck (akin to the counterpart’s crown). By adulthood, his attire consists of blue skin-tight pants with white boots that have a yellow striping at the toes, presumably taken from Beets‘ corpse when he came to adulthood. He also wears a green fur pelt draped around his waist and flows on the backside (which had been made from the fur of an old friend in memory of him) and blue wristbands. When joining the Frieza Force, he was given the latest model Frieza Force armor, he wears black boots with white borders and green-striped toes, purple form-fitting pants, and black armbands with white ridges. Initially, he wore a black, long-sleeved, form-fitting shirt as he found the armor too restrictive. He was later given black chest armor with a green midsection and shoulder pads. The armor was later destroyed when he transformed into his Legendary Super Saiyan form.
Broly is easily one of the most powerful mortal warriors in the multiverse, and one of the strongest in Universe 7. He is a true natural prodigy in combat, born with the genetics of the Legendary Super Saiyan genes and transformation ability.
He showed exceptionally immense potential since infancy as evidenced by King Vegeta during the latter’s analysis of Broly’s potential. His testing of each Saiyan attribute and latent capacities broke every known record, far surpassing even Prince Vegeta‘s scores, thereby placing him in the same incubation chamber as the children of elite Saiyans. At birth, his power level was already at 10,000 and growing with each passing day, which was very high even for the exceptional standards of newborns from the royal family bloodline. At the same time, it fluctuate wildly, his lowest power level was 920. Because of this, King Vegeta, fearing the unstable nature of Broly’s power and potential danger of it driving Broly insane one day, banished Broly so he wouldn’t be a threat to both Planet Vegeta and the universe. Although, as noted by Paragus, and not denied by King Vegeta, the king mainly did this because he was very insecure at the idea of a Saiyan who wasn’t his kin having such natural power and potential growth that would ultimately outshine his bloodline, even his own prodigious son.
