Bio Broly (film character)
From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki
Bio Broly (バイオブ ロリー, Baio Burorii) is a Biowarrior.
Dragon Ball Z: Bio Broly
Bio Broly's lineage can be traced back several films to the events of Dragon Ball Z: Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan. After the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly's defeat on the planet of New Vegeta, he makes a frantic escape in his Saiyan Pod as the planet is demolished by Comet Camori. Over time the pod finally reached Earth, soon after which Broly collapses from exhaustion and enters a sort of coma, where for seven years the elements expand around him. Eventually he is awakened underneath a thick pool of ice by the incessant cries of a nearby Goten, and after escaping this grave, Broly resumes his conquest against the Saiyans who double crossed him, particularly Goten, as Broly's sanity has been breached so heavily since the encounter on New Planet Vegeta that he can hardly tell Goten and his now deceased father apart.
Broly was unsuccessful and ultimately launched into the Sun by a Family Kamehameha fired by Goten, Gohan and the spirit of Goku, apparently ending the life of the mighty Saiyan. After the Z Warriors leave the vicinity of Natade Village, the people expel the village priest Maloja, whose incompetence before the arrival of the Z Fighters led to the arrangement of a number of per-year human sacrifices.
Now an unemployed vagabond, Maloja wanders about until he discovers Broly's blood-tarnished Attack Pod. Realizing what he has found, Maloja collects a sample of this blood and turns it in to wealthy industrialist Lord Jaguar, who prepares to pay the ex-priest handsomely. The blood sample is processed by Dr. Collie's team of scientists and a clone is born. This is where the events of Bio Broly begin.
When Jaguar "invited" Mister Satan to his abode intending to pit the martial artist against other Biowarriors in his collection as revenge for his defeat long ago, Android 18, Trunks Brief, and Goten follow. It is during a tour at their destination, an island where Jaguar's laboratory fortress resides, that Trunks and Goten discover an incomplete Super Bio-Warrior, uncanny in resemblance to the Legendary Super Saiyan. Before long, Trunks and Goten encounter Maloja, who confirms what he has selfishly done, before escaping to claim his reward. Meanwhile, Jaguar plans to pit Bio Broly against Satan.
Trunks and Goten prepared to destroy Bio Broly before he can be fully replenished, but the clone simply catching sight of Goten is enough to awaken both the Saiyan instincts and the personal vendetta of his source material. Bio Broly shatters his stasis cell, only to be drenched in Culture Fluid which, upon becoming exposed to air, became corrosive. This rendered the clone a horribly deformed and slime covered bio-mutant. While Maloja is claiming his reward for supplying Jaguar and Collie with Broly's DNA, the now rampant and extremely dangerous Culture Fluid oozes upon him, killing him in the midst of an evil-banishing prayer.
Bio Broly proceeds to rampage about the facility, destroying numerous stasis cells and exposing mounds of corrosive Culture Fluid to spill throughout the laboratory, some of which begins escaping to the populated island below. While Bio Broly does not have the power of the Saiyan he was cloned from, he still easily defeats Goten, Trunks, Android 18, and Krillin, even with the numerous advantages they gained throughout the encounter. Considering a new plan, which Bio Broly plays into, Trunks blows open an overhead container of Culture Fluid, drenching the clone in a corrosive coating which dissolved his body. Goten and Trunks go on to escort civilians away from the island, and with help from Satan they learn that water is the remedy to outbreaks of the Culture Fluid, prompting the Z Warriors to fire a number of energy waves into the sea, causing a tidal wave to flood the island and solidify the Culture Fluid and neutralizing the hazard. Suddenly, Bio Broly emerges from the ocean, revitalized and extremely enlarged by his experience with the Culture Fluid. Within moments, however, he too is solidified. After this, Goten, Trunks, and Krillin strike the clone with enough energy to shatter him into pieces.
- Baio Kaikōsen – Baio Kaikōsen (バイオ 怪光線, Baio Kaikōsen)
- Baiyōeki Kyūshū Kyodaika – Baiyōeki Kyūshū Kyodaika (培養液 吸収 巨大化, Baiyōeki Kyūshū Kyodaika; Literally meaning "Cultivation Liquid Absorption Gigantification")
- Eraser Cannon – A powerful energy sphere technique commonly used by Bio Broly.
- Double Eraser Cannon - An even more powerful version of the Eraser Cannon which involves Bio Broly firing two at once. He uses this attack against Goten and Trunks.
- Eye Lasers – Bio Broly's Eye Lasers is distinctly red in color. He uses it twice in the film and it is one of the few beam-based attacks he has.
- Mouth Energy Wave – A fluctuating beam of green energy fired from his mouth.
- Regeneration – An ability which allows Bio Broly to recover from severe bodily damage, i.e. Kuririn's Kienzan.
Although he was the bio-engineered clone of the Legendary Super Saiyan, he lacked some of Broly's most distinguishable traits such as his extraordinary strength, speed, and stamina. This is especially evident when Kuririn is able to put up a decent fight against Bio Broly. When Kuririn tries to fight against Broly, he is KO'ed before he is even move in to attack. Bio Broly retains Broly's notable recklessness, lack of compassion, and apparent invulnerability to attacks. Soon after awakening, Bio Broly's overwhelming power shatters the capsule in which he is stored, spilling the Culture Fluid. Once exposed to air, it is able to devour any cellular matter that is not like itself and multiply. The only weakness that it has is water. Water makes it solidify, and this ultimately resultes in the clone's demise when he makes contact with water.
- Bio Broly is the first of three consecutive villains in films who have very few speaking lines, besides grunts and other agitated sounds (although in his first form, Janemba speaks his own name a number of times in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn).
- In the Japanese dub, Bio Broly says one word in the whole film, Kakarrot.
- Trunks' method of defeating Bio Broly, albeit temporarily, by having him consumed by the Culture Fluid is similar to Gohan's attempts to have the original Broly swallowed by a river of lava in Dragon Ball Z: Broly: Second Coming.
- Bio Broly apparently inherits Broly's hatred of Goku.
- Bio Broly is the only known full clone of a Saiyan.
- Bio Broly is never referred to as such in the film since all of the characters merely call him Broly.
- This is the only film villain whom Goku does not help to defeat. In every film that he is alive, he obviously helps fight against the villain and in Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound and Broly: Second Coming, he somehow comes out of the Next World to help his son(s) for a brief moment (the former by "breaking the rules" and the latter via Shen Long).
- Bio Broly is the only incarnation of Broly that Kuririn actually fights against (Kuririn does not fight him at all in the first encounter and he is knocked out by Broly before he could even attack in their second encounter).
- Because of Bio Broly's unique way of regenerating, he is so far one of the rare opponents to survive a division attack such as the Destructo Disk.
- Bio Broly is one of the few major film villains who never make a playable appearance in any video game, along with Abo and Cado (and their Fusion form Aka).
- When Bio Broly turns into his Super Saiyan form (unrestrained), his eyes are all white as in his Legendary Super Saiyan form.
