DBS Broly is a rushdown grappler, a combination fitting for a caveman. The main thing that sells Broly is his outrageously high damage: once he catches you, he can bring you to the corner in an instant, and after you're there, grab some popcorn, because Broly's combo is only just beginning. Broly's neutral is serviceable enough to snag his targets, with an impressive projectile game and large hitboxes on his normals combined with forward movement. Once Broly gets in, he has a very large array of frame traps to keep opponents still, together with some armored moves and command grabs for every occasion. Broly's critical weakness is his speed, his mixup options are somewhat slow and his pressure is unsafe, but thankfully his damage can paralyze opponents into getting hit anyway. Overall, Broly hits like a green flaming dump truck and should be treated as such. His assists are all solid, so he can work off of Point if need be, too. If you like characters who hit very, very hard, then put Broly on your team and watch health bars melt.

Note: Commonly referred to as S Broly by the community, to differentiate him from the other Broly.

Lore:Born around the same time as Prince Vegeta (and a few years before Kakarot, AKA Son Goku), Broly was placed in the elite nursery chamber due to his overwhelming powerlevel that apparently went higher than readers could scan. Because of this, King Vegeta banished Broly to a distant planet, thought to be uninhabitable. His father Paragus attempted to save him by giving chase, yet he too ended up getting stranded on the planet. In order to make the best out of a bad situation, he decided to train the young Broly. Many years later, their distress signal was found by members of the Frieza Force and were allowed to join it due to also wanting revenge on the Saiyans. Broly started off being almost no match for the pair, but as the fight went on his power started skyrocketing. However, tragedy struck in the middle of battle, as a β€œstray energy blast” accidentally killed Paragus. This death caused Broly to transform into a Super Saiyan, pushing him far beyond the limits of a Saiyan and being a tough match for Goku and Vegeta.
Voice:Japanese: Bin Shimada, English: Johnny Yong Bosch
DBS Broly is an aggressive rushdown grappler who tears down his foes up-close with frametraps and powerful command grabs.
Pros Cons
  • Insane Damage: Broly's combos are among the most rewarding in the game, with amazing corner carry and extremely high damage. Two touches and TODs are very common with Broly, especially after being powered up.
  • Wide Range of Projectiles: Great ranged game with solid projectiles, 5S, 2S, Raging Quake, and Eraser Blow allow him to control the screen very well.
  • Huge Normals: 5M and 5H reach far and have high priority. 2L has a large vertical hitbox that's great as a pseudo anti-air and for covering tech options.
  • Gigantic Fury: Command grab that leads into massive damage that can also anti-air. It often scares opponents into opening themselves up.
  • Assist Selection: Broly's assist selection is great: A is a shockwave that hits fullscreen, B is a fast anti-air assist with high stun, and C is a beam.
  • Frame Data: No normals are safe on block and their slow speed makes stagger pressure borderline impossible.
  • Limited Mix-up Options: Broly has no fast mix-up options outside of his H Gigantic Fury, meaning that he heavily relies on conditioning his opponent to not jump or mash out of his pressure.
  • Resource Hungry: Broly needs resources for his options in damage and neutral. He also needs resources to get a sliding knockdown midscreen.

5LLL 400, 100, 500 U3+ 1
  • THE slowest 5L in the game
  • It can catch backdash after vanish
  • Can challenge or continue pressure after a blocked 236S

However 2L is 6f, so he'll be using that move for challenge instead

  • Launches very high on hit
  • Has enough hitstun to combo into SD or JL for a full combo
  • Centers the opponent on hit

Combo and blockstring filler. Integral to S Broly's corner combos because of how it launches opponents.

  • Only comes out if 5LL hits, and since it's frame 1, it can't whiff.

works for some combos, but kinda bad. You'll probably still use it just because of how cool it looks though.

  • Goes almost halfscreen.

Absolutely horrifying frametrap or neutral check when Broly is in Limit Break or Sparking, as it's an almost guaranteed death combo from there. Do not get hit by this.

  • Has 1 hit of mid/high strike armor beginning on frame 10. During 5[H], if the armor is triggered, he will automatically stop charging and attack.
  • Values in [] is when fully charged.
  • Goes half screen, fully charged goes a tiny bit further.
  • Smash hit launches higher than most 5H, wall splats and combos into SD. Can link into 2L in the corner.
  • Non-Smash can still combo into SD in the corner.

The unique auto-release property allows 5[H] to very efficiently bait and punish mashing and even DPs. Beware that it is not armored against low attacks (will lose against low hitting 5L or 2L), and the auto attack only goes active on frame 5 after being hit, so the opponent will be able to Vanish out if they react in time.

  • Hold or mash S to shoot all 5 Ki blasts.
  • Last Ki blast launches.

Standard ki-blasts, faster than average but unsafe on block.

The startup looks similar to his command grab, so it can be used in pressure to trick the opponent into jumping, allowing for a frame trap or putting his anti-air grabs into use.

500 All 6 4 20 -8
  • Launches on hit.

Due to 5L being slow and this move having decent range, you're mostly gonna use 2L as a jab, and chain into 5L. It's also a remarkably good meaty in the corner, even after a non-knockdown ender. Walk back 2L will catch all techs and allow for either a combo or continued block pressure.

  • Can chain into itself up to 4 times.
  • If cancelled from 5M, can only stomp twice. Similarly, stomping more than 2 times will prevent gatling into 5M.
  • On block, there's a 6f gap between each follow up stomps.

Despite the 6f gap, due to having higher priority, the followups will beat any 6f 5L/2L if they try to challenge. Though it won't catch opponents jumping.

  • Wall splats on hit.
  • Jails into vanish. Also true strings into SD in the corner.
  • Scales poorly as a starter and mid combo.
  • Only has one hit, so it will not clear the ground.

Since this is actually a normal, you can cancel into special moves or other normals (such as 2H) on hit or block. You can also vanish it on whiff. Not that great but don't ignore it, as it is still a beam.

  • Raw hit can only grab grounded opponent. Mid-combo can grab both grounded and airborne.
  • On hit, keeps grounded opponent standing, ground bounces airborne. The ground bounce can combo into SD even midscreen.
  • Useful mixup tool: big damage on hit, forms a mixup between 214L (beats block/reflect) or 2L (beats mash/jump)
  • Can be cancelled into from 5S or 2S making for some tricky long-range frametraps and mixups, especially when combined with Raging Quake.

Good for catching backdashes and reflects. It requires assists or a vanish slightly above the ground to be combo'ed into, but the damage is definitely worth it. On air hit, links into 2L.

  • Damage: Raw / Non-Smash / Smash
  • Has 3 hits: one when he's airborne, a punch when he lands, and the shockwave
  • Smash on the first two, but not on the shockwave
  • Non-Smash first hit causes very small ground bounces

  • Shockwave only hits in front of Broly.

Decent for High HSD combos into assists, but not much more than that.

  • Shockwave hits fullscreen.
  • Ground version can wall splat on Smash hit.

236M is very useful for corner combos due to the wallbounce. It's also useful as a confirm from 2S.

Shockwave on hit can be confirmed into 236L+M or 214L+M even at fullscreen.

  • Shockwave hits fullscreen.
  • Can combo into 6H > 2L anywhere on screen for an easy, high damage combo route.
  • Both versions bounces them up on Smash hit, with ground version having higher hitstun.

Really good for boosting midscreen combo damage and corner carry. Two mediums into 236H means easily 70% of your lifebar is gone.

  • U Smash hit wall bounces, D Smash causes sliding knockdown.
  • Raw hit can only grab grounded opponent. Mid-combo can grab both grounded and airborne.

Similar in use to DBZ Broly's 214M. Allows for a meterless combo in the corner. The only real issue with it is the 24f startup. When used in conjunction with his other options, it starts becoming far more deadly.

On midscreen U Smash hit, can be extended without resources with a frame perfect dash 5L. This works on all characters except Krillin.

  • U Smash hit wall bounces, D Smash causes sliding knockdown (identical effects to 214L)
  • Head invul from frame 4.
  • Can only grab airborne opponents.

Very useful post-snap in conjunction with assists. Calling the assist a little late can scare the opponent into blocking, which in turn opens them up to getting scooped.

Common combo ender, e.g. [DR] > 214M

  • U Smash hit bounces them up with high hitstun, D Smash causes sliding knockdown
  • If the opponent is grounded when this move is inputted, Broly will do a ground throw similar to 214L, if they're in the air, he will do an anti-air throw similar to 214M
  • Values in [ ] are for the anti-air version
  • Grounded grab is significantly faster if the opponent is in hitstun.

This move is crazy. The fact that it can be an air throw or a ground throw is both a blessing and a curse. The built-in option select is very strong, but it can be beaten. It has longer range than L and M versions and can be extended midscreen, even allowing for a Dragon Rush.

The grounded grab is excellent; faster than the average command grab and will lead to a combo anywhere on the screen. Due to it leading into high damage, especially when Broly is powered up, this is the mix-up you want to structure your offense with.

When the opponent is in the air, this is your go-to anti-air option outside of 2L. Be careful when using this grab when your opponent is about to land, as Broly will still commit to the grab but will whiff because they landed, allowing them to do a full punishment against you.

Eraser Blow

300,1100 / 0,1100 / 0,700,900 All D1 17 1(2)X Total 46 -5 4-21 Armor
  • Damage: Raw / Non-Smash / Smash.
  • Throws an orb at a 35 degree angle.
  • Has 1 hit of super armor from frame 4.
  • Smash on the physical hit before the projectile, Smash hit followups with a sideswitching hit into sliding knockdown.
  • Smash hit can link into dash 214S in midscreen (this is a frame perfect link). Near the corner, the knockdown keeps the opponent very close to Broly, allowing for linking into 214S with ease.

On offense, Eraser Blow is mainly used to safely end pressure, as it pushes Broly back considerably.

Will catch people trying to jump out of Broly's blockstrings. If they jump extremely late to prevent being caught by the physical hit, Broly is plus and can safely continue the string with 2L.

Arguably better than Z Broly's Eraser Blow in terms of zoning. Catches superdash so effectively that even if the blast is blocked, Broly is +1 and can continue attacking. Additionally, if they choose to mash immediately upon hitting Broly's armor, they will eat the physical hit if timed properly. That said, spamming this in neutral is pointless. Throw it out and charge in as the opponent blocks it to begin your offense, don't huck out another one unless it missed as you won't be getting anywhere and your opponent will catch onto what you're doing and punish you.

Gigantic Heave


Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery On-Block Invuln
300Γ—2, 50Γ—7, 300 Throw U1+ 16 5 16
  • Raw hit can only grab standing opponent (whiffs on crouching). Mid-combo can grab grounded, airborne, and OTG.
  • On hit, switches sides, is special cancellable.
  • Smash hit combos into SD.
  • Enables a meterless full combo after 236S.

This move has almost a half-screen's worth of corner carry all on its own. The sideswap property makes it really handy when your back is to the corner. The only moves it combos into after smash is used are his Air Level 1's, so keep that in mind.

Extremely useful to use after landing Eraser Blow. It not only retains its smash property afterwards, allowing for a superdash, but the aforementioned corner carry allows you to drag the opponent all the way to the other side.

Raging Quake

  • Only the shockwave has hitbox, hits fullscreen.

Very solid. While this assist is on the slower side, it has very high blockstun and hitstun. It also doesn't launch very high, which allows a lot of characters to get grounded Dragon Rush. A small caveat to this assist over a beam is that it does not move with the screen, making some common beam assist combos drop.

Assist B

Eraser Blow

800 All 26 +30
  • 55 frames of hitstun. +30 on block.

A very solid anti-air assist. While not as active as GT Goku's A assist, it makes up for it with higher blockstun and significantly faster startup.

Assist C

Blaster Cannon

Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery On-Block Invuln
800, 400 All 34 [21] +32

Broly does his 2S, and on hit he teleports behind you to dunk you to the ground for a combo extension. 34 frames of startup. 32 frames of blockstun. 72 frames of hitstun.

  • Oddly, due to having less active frames than multi-hitting beams (17 vs 25), the projectile does not extend as far before disappearing. You may notice it failing to reach if you're chasing a retreating opponent after calling the assist from full screen.

  • On hit, forces a soft knockdown, leaves you in the +20 range.
  • Minimum damage: 160, 700 (860). He will still continue the super even if DHC'd out.

Due to the sideswap and forced distance change, certain characters can get a 4 way mixup off of Level 3 DHCs after Gigantic Charge.

  • Minimum damage: 300*3 (900).
  • Press L/M/H/S to do followups, can be done even on whiff. Has guard point till recovery.
  • All 3 hits can be aimed. Does 3 9 2 by default.
  • 1 2 3 give sliding knockdown on hit.
  • 4 7 9 6 switch sides on block and hit.
  • 8 if done at the edge of the screen will pull the opponent out of the corner. 2 only does so as a followup.
  • Can be DHC'd into if you have a downed character by DHCing into that character's slot.

This super gives better positioning than the grounded version while dealing the same damage. If your assists let you combo into this while maintaining corner and optimal routing, then do it.

Flying around doesn't consume Smash on hit, though this doesn't have any real applications.

  • Minimum damage: 110*6 (660).

Ends up being the highest damage level 2 in the game aside from 20x Kamehameha. Incredible DHC damage when scaled compared to the ground super.

  • Reversal Super, autocorrects on startup.
  • Does 1 hit with barrier, shoots 20 Ki blasts in all directions (only 8 directed at the ground), then after recovery 11 more Ki blasts will fall down (5 in front and 6 in the back).
  • Always teleports back to the ground during recovery.
  • The Ki blasts won't rain down if he DHC out. These Ki blasts will also disappear if he gets hit, but not if he blocks or raw tags out.
  • Minimum damage: 20%.

The "shower" won't trigger Super Scaling, but the initial barrage does.

If the opponent is slightly above Broly, j.236H+S in the corner can link into j.DR for a sliding knockdown. This can usually be done by linking Smash 236S into 214S > j.236H+S.

Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery On-Block Invuln
801, 258Γ—15 All UDV 10+3 10 31 -25 1-22 All
  • Goes almost fullscreen. While the opponent is in hitstun/untech, distance travelled is increased (goes over fullscreen).
  • On hit, all damage from Broly is increased by 15% for the rest of the match from the moment he takes off his armor.
  • Minimum damage: 280, 100*15 (1780).
  • Spark + Limit break + Shirt off= You are most likely dead
  • Even without Spark or Limit break, you can get touch of death combos starting at half a bar with the right assists

This super is flexible, has one of the highest minimum damage among level 3s, and is easy to combo into, as Broly charges nearly full screen when he's DHCed into.

While it doesn't allow for good pressure midscreen, it gives massive pressure in the corner. It leaves you +43, which is more than enough time for a safejump.
