Welcome, Dragon Ball fans!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
Now that the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film is released, we can truly say that the film is a huge accomplishment. The fight sequences was the absolute best in all of Dragon Ball. The story itself told a tragic tale of Broly, who is a Saiyan used by his father Paragus to exact revenge on Prince Vegeta.
We got to see Gogeta become canon in the film. Goku and Vegeta finally worked together. Bardock’s character being portrayed as good. Gine’s epic debut in the Dragon Ball franchise. There were funny moments as well. Goku asked Frieza what does “repugnant” mean. Vegeta calling Goku an idiot multiple times. Vegeta felt embarrassed to do the fusion dance with Goku.
These are the type of moments you wouldn't forget.
Today, I’m going share with you guys my six awesome things I learned from Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
So without further ado, let’s jump right in!
6. King Cold's Retirement
Frieza thought he would be the head of his empire, but his father King Cold was still in charge. This left a huge plot hole that fans have been trying to figure out for years. The question of why King Cold wasn’t leading the Galactic Empire, apparently was a simple answer.
King Cold retired!
The Dragon Ball Super: Broly film opened with King Cold and his comrades arriving at Planet Vegeta to introduce the Saiyans to his son. After King Cold’s introduction, he immediately announced his retirement from leading the Cold Force. He also stated that Frieza will now be taking the Empire.
In the movie, I learned that it was destined for Frieza to take over King Cold’s place and reign over the Saiyans. Now that Frieza is in charge, the Empire is now known as the Frieza Force.
However, this scenario did leave out one key detail. The reason for King Cold’s retirement was perhaps he knew that his son would get stronger one day.
This would also make King Cold fit to leave.
5. Goku's New Technique
We all know that Goku has gained tons of new techniques over the years. It comes as no surprise that he displayed a “new move” in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie against Broly. In fact, Goku might’ve displayed several new attacks we haven’t seen.
The one fight that definitely stood out to me was when Goku stopped Broly in his tracks with some sort of freezing technique. This newly-found technique was used by Goku in his Super Saiyan God form.
I learned that this technique involves using energy to prevent an opponent from moving or attacking for a short period of time. Also, this ranged grappling technique is brand-new to the Dragon Ball Super series.
Although this new technique doesn’t have a name yet, this tells us that Goku has learned to use his Super Saiyan God form.
Here is something worth noting.
After escaping this technique, Broly learned to do it himself and instantly turned it back on Goku. This confirms that Broly is capable of quickly learning techniques.
4. Broly's Overwhelming Power
In the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film, Broly’s power level was gigantic. In his base form, he was able to take on Vegeta’s Super Saiyan form. After going into a rage, Broly gained enough power to go toe-to-toe with a Super Saiyan God.
Things got even scarier when Broly transforms into a Super Saiyan for the first time. Later, he would ascend into a full-powered Super Saiyan form against Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta.
It’s safe to say that Broly’s power is insane. In addition, he can beat both Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue forms without going past his Super Saiyan form.
I learned that Broly learns while he fights. He is also capable of learning new techniques as well. Throughout the film, Broly’s display of power tells us that his character may very well be stronger than a God of Destruction.
With power control and training, Broly can be on the same level as Universe 11’s Jiren.
3. Vegeta's Training Goals
In both Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, Vegeta’s goals and motivations has always centered around surpassing Goku. After his first defeat at the hands of Goku, Vegeta swore that he will get stronger.
This sparked a rivalry that was driven by Vegeta’s desire to ascend to a power level greater than Goku’s power.
However, in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, I learned that Vegeta has a new goal in mind when it came to getting stronger. In the film, the present day opened up with Goku and Vegeta sparring.
This lead Whis to ask the reason behind Goku’s training. Of course, Goku answered his usual “to fight strong enemies” type of slang. When Whis asked the same thing to Vegeta, Vegeta gave a surprising answer. With great frustration, he stated that he wants to get stronger to defeat Frieza.
Furthermore, Vegeta blamed Goku for resurrecting him. This was a shocking answer for two reasons. First, Vegeta didn’t answer Whis’ question, which is to surpass Goku. Secondly, his answer seemed to be rather noble and heroic.
It’s not like Vegeta is a villain anymore, but to mention that he was training to protect Earth was a big surprise.
2. Broly Is "Not" a Villain
In the Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Saiyan movie, we saw how Broly felt about Goku. When Broly would meet him or think about him, it made his blood boil. He would get into a fit of rage and become a Super Saiyan instantly.
Let’s just say, Broly hates Goku in every aspect of his being. He even hated Goku when he cried when they were babies back in Planet Vegeta. What used to annoy me a lot was when Broly would always scream "Kakarot."
In the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, both Goku and Broly’s relationship dynamics drastically changed. This new version of Broly has a more innocent nature about him. What caught me off guard was when he spoke with both Cheelai and Lemo.
Broly can actually talk!!
In addition, he is forced to do what his father tells him to do. People forget that Broly has feelings too. What touched my hearts was when Broly told a short story to both Cheelai and Lemo about he got the fur around his waist. Ba was Broly’s first friend, who is a giant, fearsome animal from Planet Vampa.
The reason why Broly kept Ba's fur was to have it as a sign of friendship. If this is not innocent, I don’t know what is. Even Goku noticed right away that Broly didn’t have one ounce of evil in him. This confirms that Broly is not a villain.
I learned that you don’t have to always exhort rage and have resentment towards someone. What we need to do is put our foot down and not allow anyone to get us involved with their evil plans.
That is what Paragus did in this situation and almost cost Broly's life.
1. Goku doesn't know what "repugnant" means.
This funny moment made me laugh to my stomach. The moment when Goku asked Frieza “what does repugnant mean?” Frieza had that look of “Goku, you didn’t know what that word means? You stupid fool" (laughs).
So Frieza told Goku what "repugnant" means and Goku understood it with a laugh. Before Paragus allowed Broly to fight both Goku and Vegeta, there was a specific word Frieza used that got Goku’s attention.
At first, I didn’t know what this word meant, until I looked it up on google. So the word “repugnant” means “extremely disrespectful, unacceptable, and repulsive," if you want to know, Goku.
What I learned about this whole situation is you don’t know what a word mean, look it up. In this case, Goku didn’t had time to look up what “repugnant” mean. Actually, Goku did the right thing and asked Frieza what that word meant.
Kudos to him for asking.
If you don’t ask, you don’t obtain or receive anything. Now that we know what “repugnant” means, we can all move on (laughs).
This concludes my top six awesome things I learned from Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
