Garlic Jr.

File:230px-Garlic Jr Transformed 3364.jpg

Garlic Jr. (ガーリック・ジュニア; Gaarikku Junia)


 Voiced by Akira Kamiya (Movie 1) and Shigeru Chiba (Garlic Jr. Saga)

Voiced by Don Brown (Ocean dub)

Voiced by Chuck Huber (Funimation dub)


A alien whose father was in the running for the title of the God of Earth. He lost to Kami and tried to take it by force but was defeated and thrown into the Dead Zone. Garlic Jr. later comes to exact his revenge for this. First by gaining immortality via the Dragon Balls then trying to kill Kami. He has to deal with Goku and Piccolo first and winds up falling to his own attack, The Dead Zone. He later comes back when a powerful star manages to free him and tries to take over the Earth with the Black Water Mist that turns anyone exposed to it into mindless raving vampire-like beings. Gohan, Piccolo, and Krillin are the only ones left not exposed to the mist and once again do battle with him, where he once more falls to his Dead Zone attack. This time with no way out.

  • And I Must Scream: After becoming immortal he gets sealed away inside the Dead Zone for all eternity. Twice.
  • Badass Cape
  • Broad Strokes: Invoked by his appearance in the main series in between the Frieza and Android arcs. While the Dead Zone movie could have taken place before Raditz's arrival on Earth, there are certain things that could not have happened; namely, Goku visiting Roshi, Bulma, and Krillin at Kame House to borrow the Dragon Radar before heading for Garlic's fortress (since his reunion with them at the start of Z was supposed to be the first they saw of him since the end of the original series), and Krillin meeting Gohan (since he was just as shocked as the others when Goku told them he's his son[1]).
  • Complete Immortality: The only one to have this wish successfully given to him by Shenron, as well as the only one to actually have absolute immortality (although some characters were implied to be immortal, such as Master Roshi and the Androids, it seems to be limited to natural causes).
  • Hoist by His Own Petard/What an Idiot!: Unlike his enemies, he literally cannot die. The first half of the movie was him basically moving to make that the case. Yet somehow he gets the brilliant idea of opening a void to eternal darkness - this can backfire, and thus become worse torture for him than for anyone else ever because, again, he literally cannot die.
  • Power of the Void: The Dead Zone.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • Shut UP, Hannibal: After his Motive Rant:

 Goku: "I didn't come here to listen to your life story! Where's Gohan?!"


Dr. Wheelo

Dr. Wheelo (ドクター・ウイロー; Dokutaa Uirou)


 Voiced by Koji Nakata (Japanese)

Voiced by Paul Dobson (Ocean dub)

Voiced by R.Bruce Elliot (Funimation dub)


A doctor known for his cruel experiments. An accident in the frozen regions of the world cost him his body. His assistant Kochin wishes his brain back to life and set out to find a suitable body to transfer Wheelo's body into. Inevitably this brings them into conflict with the Z-Warriors.


File:Turles 2948.jpg

Tullece/Turles (ターレス; Taaresu)


 Voiced by: Masako Nozawa (Japanese)

Voiced by: Ted Cole (Ocean dub)

Voiced by: Chris Patton (Funimation dub)


A rogue Saiyan who oddly looks like Goku. Comes to Earth to plant the Tree of Might that when planted will suck the life out of a planet. The Z-Warriors respond to the threat and he eventually gets spirit bombed to pieces.

  • Badass Arm-Fold
  • Badass Cape
  • Blood Knight
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Japanese version.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Is like this to Goku in his Super Mode and everybody else in his normal mode.
  • Dark Is Evil: Just look at him. He's wearing all black, and has darker skin than Goku.
  • Doppelganger: Looks exactly like Goku, other than the clothes...and the mean face.
  • Evil Counterpart: Seems to represent what Goku would have been like without his childhood head injury. Both he and Goku enjoy fighting and food.
    • Word of God is that he was expressly created to represent what would happen if Goku didn't end up the way he did.
  • Evil Gloating: At first. He gets angrier as the movie progresses and more-or-less drops this by the final showdown.
  • Evil Twin: The French dub refers to him as Goku's brother.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard
  • Kick the Dog
  • Not So Different
  • Planet Eater: Although he eats the planet by means of the Tree of Might's fruit
  • Power-Up Food: The Tree's fruit. They're so powerful, that Goku is able to kill Tullece by making a far more potent-than-usual Spirit Bomb out of them.
  • Space Pirates
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Despite "Tullece" fitting with the food naming motif, the character has also been referred to as "Turles" and "Taurus", depending on the dub.
  • Super Mode: Although he never became an actual Super Saiyan, he may have, at one point, been the strongest character in the franchise. Once he eats the Tree of Might's fruit, the only way Goku can beat him is to make a Spirit Bomb. His first attempt doesn't work at all. He only succeeds in killing him by making the second one out of the remaining uneaten fruit. His muscles noticeably bulge out more while in this mode.
  • Talking to Himself: Has the same seiyuu as Goku and Gohan.
  • Theme Naming: After lettuce. Lost in the adaptation name of Turles.
  • We Can Rule Together: Tries to recruit Gohan.
  • Wicked Cultured: Manages to make a career of plundering and fighting sound somewhat sophisticated by throwing in a line about enjoying fine wines along with everything else the universe has to offer.
  • Wolverine Publicity: He appeared in an OVA called Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans and its remake in the game Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2.

Lord Slug

File:DBZ LO24 5973.jpg

Lord Slug (スラッグ; Suraggu)


 Voiced by Kenji Utsumi (Old Lord Slug) and Yusaku Yara (Young Lord Slug) (Japanese)

Voiced by Brice Armstrong (English)


An evil Namekian not unlike Demon King Piccolo (the first one). Comes to Earth to gather the Dragon Balls and regain his youth then set on conquering it. A fight with the Z-Warriors ensures his plans don't get any further.

  • Attack of the 50 Foot Whatever: He can grow into a giant form if he wanted.
  • Bad Boss: Don't ever remind him of his old age, considerate advice or not.
  • Berserk Button: See Bad Boss above.
  • Badass Cape
  • Blood Knight
  • Evil Counterpart: To the reformed Demon King Piccolo.
  • Evil Overlord
  • Expy: Of the Demon King Piccolo.
  • Multiple Choice Past: Let's just say his backstory relating to his existence as a Namek is different between various versions. The Japanese version had him being sent away from Namek as a baby during its cataclysmic climate shift (similar to the Namekian who would become Piccolo and Kami), and the English version implies that he is the last of a group of Super Nameks who were exiled from Namek via the Namekian Dragon Balls due to misuse of their power.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Weakened by Gohan's whistling.


File:551401-6713504-Cooler 61 2235.jpg

Cooler (クウラ; Kuura)


 Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao (Japanese)

Voiced by: Andrew Chandler (Funimation dub)


Frieza's older brother. On the day the Saiyans' planet was destroyed, Cooler noticed the pod carrying Goku away from it. But thought nothing of it and let it be. Years later, Frieza has been beaten, and hearing of it, Cooler goes to Earth to check it out. Eventually coming into contact with the Z-Warriors. A long fight later, and Cooler is killed by Goku via being thrown into the sun...

...Or so it would seem. An attack on the new Planet Namek brings the Z-Warriors back into another confrontation with him. Only now with a much sleeker body. Another tough fight ensures till its revealed that Cooler isn't one person but a whole army of himself. Eventually Goku and Vegeta find out that none of these Coolers are the real one, and that the true Cooler is nothing more then a head that had grafted itself to a metal star, took it over and made robots of himself to carry out his revenge. But revealing himself proves to be his undoing and Goku and Vegeta manage to finish him off.

  • Avenging the Villain: However, does this restore honor to his family, and for that reason only.
  • Benevolent Boss: Unlike Frieza, Cooler seems to care for his troops, or at the very least does not abuse them in any way, and is probably one of the few redeemable traits he has. It also explains why the Armored Squadron is more than willing to serve under Cooler.
  • Blasphemous Boast: He said one before Goku blasted him into the sun: "It is I who decides who lives and who dies! All living things are mere playthings to me! No one can comprehend my power and cunning!"
  • Cain and Abel: He has no love for his brother. In fact, if Goku hadn't killed him, Cooler would've gladly done the job for him.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Subverted.
  • Genre Savvy: When his minions encounter an enemy too powerful for them to beat he steps in himself almost immediately. Later, upon realizing Goku's power is great enough to challenge him he distracts him with a ki attack before throwing a Planet Crusher at him, knowing Goku would either take it head on or dodge it and the planet would be destroyed which lets Cooler win anyway.
  • Hurl It Into the Sun: Via Goku's Kamehameha pushing his own Supernova back into him.
  • Mask Power: His ultimate form.
  • Me's a Crowd
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: He had the chance to kill Goku long before he even made it to Earth. He didn't, and he and his brother lived to regret it.
  • Oh Crap: His reaction to getting blasted into the sun.

 It's the star from this planet's solar system. Maybe I'll blow that up instead and let them all freeze to death in darkness. Wait a minute... I'm heading right for it!!

  • One-Winged Angel: He even has an extra transformation that Frieza didn't have. Didn't do him much good.
  • Pride Before a Fall: See the Blasphemous Boast above? He says that literally seconds before his defeat.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Cooler, Coola, Koola, Kula? Let's just chalk this one up to personal preference.
    • For whatever reason, the Japanese writing of his name seems to be クウラ rather than クーラ. The latter is the more typical way of writing long vowels in foreign words and names.
  • Spikes of Villainy
  • Stronger Sibling
  • Talking to Himself: Frieza and Cooler share the same voice actor in Japan. This is made especially apparent in Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, where they actually appear together outside of video games.
  • Theme Naming: Guess.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He gets this when he's defeated the first time. Simply put, his last thoughts are "I don't believe it! I could have killed him! I let him go! I let him go!
  • Villainous BSOD: See Villainous Breakdown.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Again, he's appeared twice, and has been in numerous games.
  • Your Head Asplode: Inverted in his first defeat: The only part of his body that WASN'T destroyed from being sent into the sun by the Supernova was his head.

Android 13

File:Android 13 8813.jpg

Android 13 (人造人間十三号; Jinzou Ningen Juusan-Gou)


 Voiced by Kazuyuki Sogabe (Movie) and Moriya Endo (Budokai Tenkaichi series) (Japanese)

Voiced by Chuck Huber


Another Android that was created by Gero and completed by his computer long after his death. As with nearly all of Gero's androids, he only has one objective: kill Goku.


Broly (ブロリー; Burorii)

File:Broli SSJ 2945.jpg


 Voiced by: Bin Shimada (Japanese)

Kid Broly voiced by: Cynthia Cranz (Funimation dub)

Adult Broly voiced by: Vic Mignogna (Funimation dub)


The legendary Super Saiyan, as in the first Saiyan to achieve Super Saiyan status. Right from birth he had a power level of 10,000. But his early life wasn't pleasant due to 1) The then baby Goku's constant crying next to him, 2) King Vegeta fearing his power could overthrow him and ordered him killed despite the protests of his father, and 3) Frieza blowing up the entire Saiyan race immediately afterward, with his power level narrowly allowing him to escape with both his and his father's lives. It didn't get any better after that however, especially when his father launches a campaign to rebuild the Saiyan empire which bring him back into conflict with Goku.

After a very tough fight in which Broly practically trashes all the Z Fighters, hes eventually defeated and left for dead on a planet where a comet about to smash into. However popularity power by some fluke he manages to survive and get himself to Earth via a space pod. He enters a coma only coming out of it when hearing Goten crying and once more continues his rampage against the Saiyans but is once again beaten and seemingly finished when hes hurled into through the sun and has his heart ripped out at the other end. However his blood was collected and he wound up cloned in a misguided attempt to gain money. This time though, Broly comes back very deformed, slime covered and hardly resembling what he once was. After another lengthy fight, he beaten when the fluid covering him is solidified in water. A final Kamehameha finishes for good.

  • A God Am I: Inversion: Broly, in the Japanese version of Movie 8 as well as a few of the games, has him describing himself as the devil in response to Piccolo's statement about him being a monster.

 Piccolo: He's a monster!

Broly: Monster? Wrong, I'm the devil!

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In-universe example thanks largely to the rewriting of his character in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, as the latter source depicts him as, while still somewhat unstable due to his power, also genuinely loyal to his father and his friends and overall kind hearted, and only engaged in villainy because his father demanded it, a stark contrast to in his debut movie where he was pretty much a PTSD-ladened psychopath responsible for the destruction of at least a few planets of his own volition.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Aside from elements of psychopathy in Broly's characterization, he also has elements of split personality disorder (most notably the scene where Broly calmly asks Paragus in a concerned tone as to what the latter was about to do, only to switch to undergoing a berserk, screaming fit when discovering he's about to put the crown on him) and even PTSD (since it is heavily implied that most of his madness had roots from King Vegeta and Frieza's attempts at killing him as a baby).
  • Ax Crazy: made more frightening by his overwhelming power, and Trope Codifier for Ax Crazy Blood Knight characters. His insanity makes Frieza and Cell seem normal and is on par with Kid Buu.
  • Badass: And how.
  • Anti-Hero - Some games make Broly into this, such as the story mode of Supersonic Warriors 2 where Broly and Paragus succeed in ambushing and wiping out the Z-Fighters.
  • Barrier Warrior - He has the most extensive use of a Deflector Shield in the entire franchise. In the Budokai video game series, it even takes the place of dodging animations and stands as his second special move.
  • Berserk Button: Anything resembling Goku. Or, as he likes to put it: "KAKAROTTOO~!".
    • Thinking of Goku's crying when they were both 1-day old incensed him out of Paragus' mind control.
    • Hearing Goten's whining angered him out of a seven year iceberg-coma.
  • Beware the Superman: He was born with a power level of 10,000 and is a likely prodigy among the Saiyans, and is even the closest thing the Saiyans have to a messianic figure. Let's put it this way: He is NOT a good person, or even a sane person (though in all fairness, a lot of his insanity ironically had to do with his nearly being killed by King Vegeta regarding his power level, plus Planet Vegeta's destruction).
  • Bin Shimada: His seiyuu.
  • Blood Knight: Other than the obvious fact that he is a Saiyan, he is positively delighted when the Z-warriors refused to yield and are prepared to fight him to the bitter end.

 Broly: "Knowing you have no chance of victory, and yet you still fight on? You have my respect; you are truly worthy of your Saiyan blood!!"

  • Bling of War: One piece counts as his Power Limiter (and possibly a Hypno Trinket) and is indistinguishable from his other gem-encrusted pieces of gold.
  • Breakout Character: If his inumerous appearances in video games is not enough, he has the most of all movie characters by a long shot and even more than some main characters as well, the fact one of these games (Super Sonic Warriors 2) actually redeems him should settle it.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Taken VERY literally in regards to his demise in Second Coming. After being launched into the Sun by Goku, Gohan and Goten's Kamehameha, Broly screams "Kakarot!" and proceeds to have his heart explode in both directions, before eventually exploding himself.
  • The Brute: One of the most Badass examples in anime, but he's merely a Dragon-in-Chief for his father in the first movie.
  • Came Back Wrong/Clipped-Wing Angel: He was cloned in the movie Bio Broly. The clone's genetic makeup, after attempting to go Super Saiyan, began to mutate him into something more worthy of the classification "swamp monster" than "Saiyan".
    • Actually, that was caused by the culture fluid in the tank he was grown it. It becomes acidic upon contact with air.
    • Also, it's implied in the same movie that Broly's clone was actually weaker than the original (for starters, Krillin managed to last while fighting Broly's clone, whereas in the previous movie, Broly OHKO-ed Krillin by blasting him into a cliff before Krillin could even land the first strike).
  • Color Coded for Your Convenience: Both his hair and his Battle Aura have a slight green tint when he enters Super Saiyan. The Budokai games essentially explain this as being a form of its own called "Legendary Super Saiyan", different from the other levels.
  • Competitive Balance: One might remember Broly being a lot faster in his debut movie than he is in video games, this was clearly made to stick him in The Brute role and disregard his Lightning Bruiser stats to even things out in the games; hits hard and moves slowly, rather than the broken hits hard and moves fast.
    • Averted in his Super Saiyan 3 Transformation, where he is back to being a Lightning Bruiser.
  • Dark Messiah: Broly is The Saiyan racial equivalent of a Generational Messiah. The Legendary Super Saiyan, a born paragon of everything their race stands for.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A few times in at least the English dub, such as when he says "Oh, look! The little slaves decide to be brave!" despite the slaves currently being huddled together in complete fear as he says this, as well as his reply of "Is that another word for a coffin?" in response to Goku's demand that Broly supply a handicap.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He hates Goku with a murderous passion because shortly after they were both born, Goku's crying bothered him.
    • In Broly's defense, though, it's implied that it's not so much Goku's crying itself that made him hate Goku so much as Goku doing so around the same time Broly ended up stabbed to death, and then narrowly surviving Planet Vegeta's destruction at the hands of Frieza, which effectively means that he blames Goku's crying for his nearly being killed, which actually comes across as somewhat understandable, if still somewhat insane.
    • He punched out his father's eye, just for wanting to talk.
  • The Dog Bites Back: See Self-Made Orphan.
  • Evil Counterpart: Shares many similarities with Goku, such as being born almost simultaneously and sharing character elements from the original Monkey King of Journey to the West. See Mythology Gag below for more details.
    • Also being a much more unstable version of Gohan with a less supportive father.
    • A number of fans noted he's basically a pure-blooded Saiyan version of Future Trunks: He has a similar relationship with his father, with him being far more powerful than him, and in addition to his normal Super Saiyan form, he has another transformation that significantly bulks him up, gives him Prophet Eyes etc.
  • Flanderization: Broly in video games, some only potrays him as someone who just can't speak anything but "Kakarot!" and obviously lost his mind; similar to the characterization he had on his second movie, in which could be justified that his first defeat took its toll on his already unstable sanity. Other games, recent ones at that, goes with his original characterization, a mad brute who still can talk properly and even when attacking random targets he knows exactly what he is doing.
  • Freudian Excuse: The eighth movie heavily implies that, besides Kakarot's crying, one of the biggest reasons for the way he is is because of life-threatening events related to Broly's birth. King Vegeta was so scared of his abnormal power that he tried to execute him as a child. He survived, only to watch as Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta (according to Shin Budokai, this is what made him so unhinged in general). Later on in life, his father placed him under the control of a slave crown, initially out of fear of his power, but afterwards, he was used to destroy even more planets than before against his own will, which probably factored more hate into his father.
    • Heck, even his hatred of Goku for the latter crying next to him becomes a bit more understandable when taking in all of the above, since he effectively blames Goku and his crying for nearly getting him killed. To put it another way, Goku's crying is a Jungian archetype.
  • Heel Face Turn: In Super Sonic Warriors 2, one of Broly's story modes is one big Alternate Continuity, at one point after his usual rampages he hits his head and loses his memory while on earth, Mr. Satan finds Broly and makes him a disciple, even after regaining his memories later and fighting Goku in a fit of rage, Mr. Satan manages to calm him down, eventually Broly becomes a good guy; the game still implies he can't stand being near Goku though.
    • Hazy Feel Turn: In the same, one of Broly's other story modes has him and Paragus actually succeed in killing the Z-Fighters and taking over the Earth, at which point he essentially took over the Z-Fighter's usual role as the planet's protector, even getting rid of Cell and Majin Buu. Although not quite a true Heel Face Turn due to it being largely motivated by wanting to conquer it, he does nonetheless come close to at least being an Anti-Hero.
  • Human Popsicle: From the beginning of his second movie appearance until he's woken up by Goten's whining.
  • Hypno Trinket - For the first half of the movie, Broly was wearing a crown that was heavily implied to have brainwashed Broly and sapped his will and emotions. It was placed on him by his father, Paragus, originally because he was scared of his power level, but after actually placing it onto Broly (who, going by the flashback, was unwilling to even allow Paragus to put it on him), he decided to use Broly as a little toy, namely destroy a lot more planets than Broly himself destroyed when he was a kid (again, against Broly's will).
  • The Juggernaut - To call him a "nigh-unstoppable mass of pain and destruction" is putting it VERY mildly. He spends pretty much every second that he's in his Legendary Super Saiyan form steamrolling whatever unlucky souls happen to be in his line of sight.
  • Kick the Dog - He blew up a planet just to see the looks on the former inhabitants' faces.
  • Lack of Empathy: He's so insane that it is very hard for him to feel empathy. However, he's at least honest about it and doesn't try to manipulate people by pretending to be empathic.
    • Probably the closest thing to expressing any empathy to anyone was the Kick the Dog moment mentioned above, since he talks about their constantly looking up towards their home planet with hopes to go back there someday in a manner that indicated he related somewhat to their desires.
  • Laughing Mad: On par with Kid Buu.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's dressed like some sort of regal/holy being, and is also implied to be the Saiyan equivalent of the Messiah. In his purest form, he's a self-described devil.
    • Probably qualifies as Pure Is Not Good as well, given the fact that he was able to gain the Super Saiyan transformation at what is implied to be childhood, which was stated to require a pure heart for him to do so.
  • Lightning Bruiser: When fully transformed, he has the notable tactic of dodging an attack easily, then taking the next attack in the face just to show that it wouldn't have worked anyway, the walks through the attack before fully reversing the flow of action relentlessly attacking despite whatever amount of offense received.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Surprisingly averted, considering how most villains react to injury in the series. When Goku manages to kick Broly in the jaw hard enough to make him bleed, not only does he barely even react, just giving a smirk, he actually treats it as though it weren't a big deal and licks off the wound. In fact, the only one to overreact over the minor injury was Goku when he witnessed Broly licking off the wound.

 (Broly turns to Goku with his mouth bleeding, then smirks and licks off the wound)

Goku: Eew! That was completely unnecessary! Disgusting!

  • Morality Pet: Mr. Satan acts as this for him in Super Sonic Warriors 2. Similarly, his incarnation in Dragon Ball Super: Broly had Cheela and Lamo, and to a certain extent Paragus, as this.
  • Mythology Gag: Broly, like our main hero, is also partially based on the Son Goku of Journey to the West. This is alluded to by the fact he is restrained by a golden headband that reinforces obedience through pain, much like how the headband that imprisoned the epynomous Monkey King causes him mindless agony whenever Tripitaka chants the mantra of obedience. This gag makes sense considering Broly is after all Goku's Evil Counterpart.
  • My Death Is Only the Beginning: Kind of: Although he certainly did not intend to end up mortally wounded by a supercharged Goku, he certainly recovered and was heavily implied to have grown stronger during the seven year coma he had as a result of recovering from his injury.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Half of the eighth movie is basically him beating the snot out of the heroes.
    • And he even implies that he's not even using his full strength to do so.
  • No Infantile Amnesia: See Disproportionate Retribution. Also, it is also implied in Shin Budokai that, besides remembering Goku crying, he also remembers the time when Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta and his powers awakened to allow him to escape.
  • No One Could Survive That: Seriously.
    • First movie, he ends up being punched in the gut, a process that seems to literally tear him apart. Subverted in Movie 10 had him being Killed Off for Real by losing his heart after being engulfed by three beams that carried him through the sun (although it wasn't until Movie 11, Bio Broly, that this was made quite clear, even though it caused a few plotholes such as one of the characters, Maloja, stating it even though he was nowhere to be seen at the battle)
  • Off with His Head: Averted. At one point in Bio-Broly, Krillin flings a Destructo Disc directly at the titular villain's neck. Although it was a direct hit, his mutated status ensured he could not actually be beheaded via his slime head reattaching itself with minimal effort, also with some regeneration.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Even more so than any Dbz villain which speaks volumes.
  • Painful Transformation: A closer look at his Legendary Super Sayan trasformation in the 8th movie shows signs of this, one can see Broly's mouth and eye sockets being ripped wide open, this lead many to believe that his muscles don't just grow with the transformation, but literally burst from within his body in a painful manner.
  • Power Limiter: A hypno-crown made by his dad in his debut movie.
    • Handicapped Badass: Despite his power limiter, which according to Paragus and Future Trunks, restrained his power to such a level that he's weaker than the former, he was nonetheless implied to be strong enough to completely obliterate the South Galaxy in one sitting (based on King Kai's reaction to its destruction).
  • Prophet Eyes: in his Legendary form.
  • Psychic Powers: Implied in Broly: Second Coming, where he is seen strangling Goten in a manner that resembled a Force Choke.
  • Say My Name: He always shouts "Kakarot!"
  • Screaming Warrior: Ow, my poor vocal chords.
  • Self-Made Orphan: He did this by crushing his father's space-pod with him inside after he tried to leave him to die by a comet hitting the planet. Then again, considering what his father subjected him to after putting that power limiter/hypno trinket on him and later attempting to abandon Broly shortly before his demise, Paragus did deserve it.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Broly, Brolly or Broli?
    • And, of course, there are the "Romanizers" who insist it's Burorii.
    • The problem with "Brolly" is it's the English slang for umbrella.
  • Sphere Factor - His Ki is depicted this way.
  • Sickly Green Glow: His Legendary aura
    • Sicker still when you consider no other character has a green aura.
  • Suicide by Cop: Possibly implied in the Japanese version, since shortly after transforming into the Legendary Super Saiyan, he demands that the Z-Fighters give it their all against him if they wish to prevent his destruction of New Planet Vegeta, and he also indicated that he respects the Z-fighters for trying to stop him even when the chances of success were low, even telling them they were worthy of their Saiyan blood.
  • Sucking-In Lines - His energy more often condenses from the atmosphere into his shield and Energy Balls than directly from his body. The entire area goes green before the sphere shrinks down to useful density.
  • Theme Naming: After Broccoli.
  • True Final Boss: From the Nintendo DS RPG Dragon Ball Kai: Attack of The Saiyans, bonus points for appearing right after the first Goku vs. Vegeta battle.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Apparently, he doesn't like Goku very much.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His common attire.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity - Both played straight and subverted. Although his power may have something to do with his Ax Crazy nature, it is also heavily implied that the life-threatening experiences that he had to endure the day of his birth had a LOT to do with his insanity, perhaps even more than his actual power level itself (which was stated to be 10,000 as a newborn, and 1,400,000,000 in his Legendary Super Saiyan form, and that was just from Movie 8).
  • Wolverine Publicity: He's so popular a character he appears in three movies and fourteen fighting games, among other things, and he got a Super Saiyan 3 form in Raging Blast. Heck, he's also popular enough to appear even in fighting games where Movie characters are normally excluded, such as Burst Limit (with the only other character to meet this standard being Bardock).
    • Just fourteen fighting games is a little narrow minded, even more as he appeared in other game genres as well:

Total of 19 games.
    • Attack of The Saiyans so far is the best example of his Wolverinism, the game was made on the recent, at the time, success of Dragon Ball Kai in Japan so the storyline only went as far as the first epic fight with Goku against Vegeta; with the final boss, in this case Vegeta, defeated you could still free-roam around to get a few extras, Broly is one of these extras as he is the harder extra final boss; thus Broly managed to appear in a continuity where he SHOULD not have ever be seen, while the movies defies the canon continuity of the series still is safe to say that Broly belongs somewhere during the Android/Cell saga, but in this game he managed to appear even before Frieza!
      • The first broly film is set in the 10 day wait for the Cell games, as stated in the movie.
    • Heck, recently, he's now in a live action TV show in Japan alongside his father as the two main antagonists.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: See Freudian Excuse. Long story short, he had a really bad first day of existence, from nearly being executed due to his power level when he was barely even a day old, to narrowly escaping Planet Vegeta's destruction, which probably played quite a bit into his more insane view on things.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Not you Hercule, Broly's fighting style is more like wrestling moves than the lightning fast movements of the characters in the main series.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has been on both sides of the trope. In Movie 8, he is shown to target Gohan with death, and in Movie 10, he assaults Trunks and Goten, the latter of whom was due to a serious case of Mistaken Identity with his father Goku. Likewise, his backstory has him being a victim of this trope when Broly was nearly executed on King Vegeta's orders, not to mention Frieza blowing up the planet shortly thereafter, and narrowly escaping such twice.
    • Would Hit a Girl: Likewise, Movie 10 shows he has no qualms with harming Videl if she is in his presence.
  • You Gotta Have Lime-Green/Blue/Purple Hair - Subverted. Although Broly in the 8th Movie, when going Super Saiyan, does have blue hair (purple hair if it is dark outside), it was implied that this was not his natural super saiyan hair color as much as a side-effect of his Slave Crown. Similarly, the Lime Green hair color of his Legendary Super Saiyan form was also implied to also be a temporary side effect of his sudden release from his Power Limiter/Hypno Trinket. As Movie 10 (and one very brief moment in the ending of Movie 8) showed, his actual hair color as a Super Saiyan and as a Legendary Super Saiyan was Gold, just like the others.

Hatchiyack (ハッチヒャック; Hatchihyakku)


 Voiced by Yusaku Yara (Version 1993) and Hideo Ishikawa (Raging Blast 2)

Voiced by Christopher Sabat (Funimation dub)


A being from the OVA Plan to Eradicate All Saiyans, a supercomputer created by Dr. Raichi to enact revenge against the Saiyans as he a Tuffle, a race that inhabited the planet that would become Planet Vegeta after the Saiyans took it over.

  • Expy: It's essentially the exact same idea of a robot being created to carry on the creators hatred (Dr. Gero's Super Computer for Goku, Dr. Raichi for the Saiyan race as a whole).
  • Marth Debuted in Smash Bros: Its first appearance outside Japan was in Raging Blast 2, where it is both a playable character as well as featuring in the remastered version of Plan To Eradicate The Super Saiyans included in the game.
  • So Last Season: Stated to have the same power level as Broly (more specifically his Movie 8 incarnation), the heroes have an easier time with him presumably because they since got stronger after their fight with Broly. They still have a lot of trouble though as one ending requires a spirit bomb and the other requires taking advantage of its Artificial Stupidity

Bojack (ボージャック; Boujakku)


 Voiced by: Tessho Genda (Japanese)

Voiced by: Bob Carter (Funimation dub)

Janempa/Janemba (ジャネンバ)


 Voiced by Tessho Genda (Japanese)

Voiced by Jim Foronda (Janempa) and Kent Williams (Janemba)


A demon that was created from the evils of a machine that exploded in the afterlife and grafted onto the ogre that was watching it. First started off as a fat child like yellow being. But after Goku trounces that form, it tranforms into a more fight-abled body that needed Gogeta to defeat him.

Hirudegarn (ヒルデガーン; Hirudegaan)


 Voiced by Shin Aomori (Japanese)

Voiced by Robert McCollum (Funimation dub)


A ancient being of nothing but pure destruction. It was defeated by an race of aliens known as the Konatsians who managed to split it in two and seal it within two brothers. Then sealing those in music boxes and shooting them across the galaxy. However a wizard named Hoi sought to unseal him to rule the galaxy. He succeeds but only winds up unleashing the monster on Earth that the Z-Warriors have to deal with.

  • Achilles Heel: It's stated not to be as hard to fight if you can rid yourself of your fear of it. Its hard not to get a little anxious given the approach Hirudegarn takes
  • Final Boss: As one of the few movie villains to safely fit within the Z continuity, this is the last and most powerful villain that Goku and co. fight in the franchise.
  • God of Evil: A deity of apocalyptic destruction given life through his animated idol.
  • Kaiju: Dragon Fist Explosion: If Goku can't do it, no one can is basically what happens when the animators get drunk and agree to "wouldn't it be cool if Goku gets to fight Godzilla?"
    • Also a case of Hoist by His Own Petard, as the only reason why Goku's Dragon Fist Explosion even worked is because Hirudegarn became far too enraged at Goku's taunts to remember to dissipate from Goku's attacks.
      • Rather he couldn't as its tail, the source of that power, was cut off by Trunks.
  • Made of Air: Can't even touch it half the time
  • One-Winged Angel: Shedding its outer layer like a monstrous cicada to reveal an even more powerful, nightmarishly insectoid form beneath.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • Super Mode

Abo and Kado

Abo (アボ) and Kado (カド)

Two aliens featured in the OVA Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!. They originally served Frieza but wound up on their own after his death. They chase after Tarble and Gure, winding up on Earth and coming into confrontation with the Z-Warriors.

  1. Although it should be noted that one of the explainations Krillin considered for telling Chi Chi why Gohan is missing when he was training with Piccolo is "Gohan's been kidnapped again," implying that Gohan was kidnapped at least once prior to Raditz's arrival on Earth, and by extension, that Dead Zone happened.
