** Due to being a Saiyan mutant, his ''Super'''s version has greater potential than even Saiyan hybrids like Gohan due to his highly potent AdaptiveAbility. He started out much weaker than Goku and Vegeta due to a lack of proper training and challenging opponents, quickly closed the gap when he fought them for the first time in his base and Rage forms, and then greatly exceeded them once he became a Super Saiyan. [[spoiler:Then he achieves Full Power Super Saiyan, which forces Gogeta to go into Super Saiyan Blue to defeat him.]]

* TheGift: The only words that can describe his fighting potential. Broly has almost limitless energy, a unique Super Saiyan state that elevates him above and beyond almost everybody in the series, and is extremely durable. The new version of Broly combines all of the above with an AdaptiveAbility which allows him to grow stronger on the fly and is able to [[PowerCopying mimic his foes’ attacks and repurpose them for his own use.]]

When that broke and repurpose he unleashed his Legendary Super Saiyan form, his power was effectively at maximum and he never tired out.

* DecompositeCharacter: Ever since ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' started to borrow elements of the original Broly, the original Broly was divided into three characters:
** Kale, a DistaffCounterpart from Universe 6 borrows Broly's color palette and golden bracelets, alongside Broly's quotes and having a murderous intent with both Cabba and Goku [[CharacterDevelopment at first.]] She then grew out of the inspiration. In the manga, she also borrows the element of being a unique legendary Saiyan.
** Broly: BR, the reinterpretation of the character borrows the original Broly backstory and personal relationship with his father Paragus, [[AdaptationPersonalityChange but twist them all around]], with [[AdaptationalVillainy Paragus being an abusive parent]] and Broly having NoSocialSkills. This Broly is not evil, merely being a tool of revenge.
** Cumber, a [[CanonForeigner non-canonical]] character from the videogame ''Videogame/DragonBallHeroes'', borrows Broly's status as an evil Saiyan fueled by sadism with hatred over someone of his past(the original Super Saiyan God, we assume). Cumber lacks the green transformation, but [[OffModel has a unique tint in his transformations.]]
* DubPersonalityChange: In the original work, Broly is portrayed in both incarnations as [[TheQuietOne a man of few words]], due to him having NoSocialSkills (until he transforms in [[Anime/DragonBallZBrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan Movie 8]], where he goes to a talkative SoftSpokenSadist). Ricardo Brust' interpretation of the character in the Latin American dub puts him as more of an eloquent guy in both incarnations.

* VocalEvolution: Creator/VicMignogna's take on Broly in the video games in the [=2010s=] has gradually gotten much less growly, with Vic's regular voice coming through (likely to decrease strain on his vocal cords).
* WolverinePublicity:
** Broly is so popular that he received two sequels to his debut film, is a consistent character in videogames (even the ones that ignore non-canon events like ''Sagas'', the original ''Xenoverse'' and ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ''), and he receives transformations that are otherwise exclusive to Goku.
** By ''Super'', his popularity was so big a female counterpart was created, and she was a heavy topic in the trailers and opening of the Universe Survival Saga. Then a canon Broly followed suit thanks to his worldwide popularity.

** Played straight with ''Super'' Broly. While he's far from completely unskilled he still lacks a refined fighting style since he lived on a Frontier Planet without any sentient beings his whole life. Not
that are otherwise exclusive this matters since he's stronger, faster and more durable than Goku and Vegeta along with lacking the stamina problems Frieza and Kale had. However, this comes back to Goku.

* StoryBreakerPower: His Power Level was 10,000 (that's 2000 more than Goku's canonically was when he fought Nappa) as a ''newborn''. As an adult, he scales up massively.

* PersonOfMassDestruction: More so than the majority of DBZ villains. In the intro of the 8th movie alone he wipes out ''an entire galaxy in one go'', making it vanish entirely in ''seconds'' ([[ArtisticLicensePhysics even though that would be physically impossible]]). Paragus was afraid of him unleashing all of his power since it meant the destruction of the entire universe. The ''Super'' version of Broly is just as ridiculous, blowing up an entire icecap and reactivating the slumbering volcanic mountain range underneath it. When he reaches Super Saiyan he periodically carpet-bombs the entire region and ''temporarily breaks the fabric of reality itself''.

* NotWorthKilling: [[spoiler: When Broly is finished with Frieza after pounding him into roadkill for at least an hour straight, he leaves him alive and instead heads off to attack Whis.]]



* ReluctantPsycho: Broly doesn’t want to hurt anyone, even if his lapses in temper tend to put everyone around him at risk. When a Frieza Force meathead harasses and physically assaults Cheelai and Lemo, Broly gets in the guy’s face, [[TranquilFury visibly seething and barely keeping himself in check]], and tries to warn him to stop.

When he has Super Saiyan God Goku beaten down, instead of trying to finish him off, he instead chooses to vent his anger in the form of a SkywardScream, and only resumes his assault when Goku gets back on his feet and continues the fight. And even when he goes Super Saiyan and attacks Frieza there seems to be moments where he’s internally struggling with himself, and despite his devastating NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on him, he doesn’t actually kill him, and instead flits off to pursue Whis after Frieza can no longer fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShrinkingViolet: Though he's more mentally preserved and [[TheQuietOne more quiet]] than Kale, who fits the archetype better, Broly rarely talks to anyone with the only exceptions being his father, Cheelai, and Leemo.
