Broly (DBS)
DBFZ DBS Broly Portrait.png
Play-style Rushdown, Grappler
Team Role Point, Middle


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 “stray 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.

DBFZ DBS Broly Icon.png DBS Broly is a versatile grappler character who uses his massive tool-kit, frame traps, and a plethora of command grabs to punish his opponents.
Pros Cons
  • Very high damage with meter and assists.
  • Excels at grappling the opponent with quick grabs, anti-air grabs, OTG grabs, you name it. H Gigantic Fury is particularly egregious.
  • Pressure has multiple points where he can frame-trap, which is complemented by his aforementioned grab game.
  • Long combos allow his assists to refresh mid-combo and potentially use them.
  • Solid supers that enable a lot of DHC potential, such as Base Goku's Super Spirit Bomb and four way mixups off of Gigantic Charge.
  • Many common scramble situations are heavily slanted in his favor due to the armor on some of his moves.
  • Very good long range game. Solid 5S, j.S cannot be superdashed and is all-around amazing, Eraser Blow is armored and recovers extremely quickly, and a beam.
  • Generally insane range on all of his normals.
  • Surprisingly useful autocombo that can never miss, and helps him with his slide knockdowns.
  • All of his assists are amazing for controlling space in neutral. Assist B, in particular, is excellent at shutting down opponents in the air.
  • Ridiculous corner carry thanks to midscreen j.S loops, j.2H, and 214S. Can easily drag the opponent from corner to corner.
  • Extremely unorthodox combo routes and playstyle compared to nearly every other character. Requires high execution and lots of labbing to optimize.
  • Big frame, meaning he gets hit by certain moves a lot easier than other characters do.
  • Normals are on the slower side, along with holding the crown for slowest 5L in the game at TEN FRAMES.
  • Struggles to get slide knockdowns without assists. Some combo routes in the corner can end in a sliding knockdown at the cost of damage.
  • Quite meter/assist hungry to get conversions off of his grabs midscreen, or knockdowns.
  • Not a single one of his normals is safe on block, and the specials that make him safe can usually be reflected.

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

5LL 700 / 0,700 All - 15 1 26 -11 -
  • Blows the opponent all the way up
  • Has enough hitstun to combo into SD
  • Centers the opponent on hit
5LLL 400, 100, 500 - U3+ 1 - - - -
  • Only comes out if 5LL hits, and since it's frame 1, it can't whiff.
  • Combos into SD and enables slide knockdowns, provided you don't use j.2H or touch the ground mid-combo.

Kind of slow startup, but range is immense and compensates for it.

  • Has 1 hit of mid/high 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 bounds and combos into SD. Can link into 2L in the corner.
  • Non-Smash can still combo into SD in the corner.

The gap between his charging armor being triggered and when he attacks is 5f.

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

Doesn't beat other Ki Blasts like DBZ Broly.

DBFZ DBSBroly 2L.png
Despite not being a low, it's useful.
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
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.

DBFZ DBSBroly 2M.png
Stupid spiders!

700 [500] Low - 14 [21] 4 19 -7 -
  • 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.

900 All - 28 - Total 71 -18 (forced) -
  • Has Beam properties
  • On block, this into SD is a true blockstring.
  • Scales poorly as a starter and mid combo.

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 if on whiff.

  • 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)

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. Similar in use to Cell's 214S in combos.

  • Smash hit causes sliding knockdown.
  • Very slow for a j.H.

Vital to corner combos, as he's the only character to have a practical j.H ▷ 2L link. This allows high damaging sliding knockdown routes without meter or assist.

  • Hitbox is active as he's holding the ball up.
  • Can't go offscreen, will "slide" against the corner's wall.
  • Explodes when it hits the ground, enabling relaunches with 2L.
  • Cannot be Super Dashed through.

Very useful for his corner combos. On block, can safely SD in or raw tag at close range. Has some uses for zoning since it's rather fast.

  • Airthrow with some limited tracking.
  • Smash hit wall bounces, combos into SD.

Has incredible corner carry. Even though it looks like a good air-to-air, it's slow to the point you'll only use it for combos or to catch people trying to use j.S. Has some use in snap mixes along with 214M, though this is arguably preferable as the opponent can jump to avoid the latter.

Special Moves[edit]

Version Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
  • 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
Ground L 100,100,800 / 100,100,300 / 0,600,400 All U1 12 3,2 Total 45 -5 -
Air L 100,100,800 / 100,100,300 / 0,600,400 All U1 13 - - -5 -
  • Shockwave only hits in front of Broly.

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

Ground M 100,100,800 / 100,100,300 / 0,700,400 All U1 17 4,2 Total 51 -5 -
Air M 100,100,800 / 100,100,300 / 0,700,400 All U1 17 - - -5 -
  • Shockwave hits fullscreen.
  • Ground version corner bounds on Smash hit.

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

Ground H 100,800,1200 / 100,800,1200 / 0,800,1200 All U1 12 3,2 - -5 -
Air H 100,800,1200 / 100,800,1200 / 0,800,1200 All U1 13 - - -5 -
  • Shockwave hits fullscreen.
  • Both versions bounces them up with high hitstun on Smash hit.

Really good for boosting midscreen combo damage and corner carry.

  • Non-Smash causes sliding knockdown.
L 0,200*3 / 0,400,300*3,500 Throw U1 24 1 21 - -
  • Smash hit wall bounces.
  • 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 and a vanish conversion midscreen. The only real issue with it is the 24f startup. When used in conjunction with his other options, it starts becoming far more deadly.

M 0,200*3 / 0,400,300*3,500 Throw U1 12 3 23 - 4-14 Head
  • Smash hit wall bounces.
  • Head invul from frame 4.
  • Can only grab airborne opponents.
  • Interestingly enough, Broly can use this move to throw his own assists along with the opponent. However, the assist will still come out wherever you throw them, which means you can combo midscreen with the assist. This doesn't work with all assists however, and is also very new tech, so extreme uses haven't been found for it yet.

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.

H 0,500*3 / 0,400*3,200*2,500 Throw U1 24 [12] 1 [3] 21 [23] - 1-24 [1-14] Head
  • Smash hit bounces them up with high hitstun.
  • Head invul from frame 1.
  • If the opponent is grounded when this move is inputted, Broly will do 214L, if they're in the air, he will do 214M.

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.

Eraser Blow[edit]
Eraser Blow
DBFZ DBSBroly EraserBlow.png
Absolutely no jumping here good sir
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
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 anywhere on screen.

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.

Gigantic Heave[edit]

Oh well I guess I'll see you later
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
300*2, 50*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 it's 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.

800 All - 41 3, 3, 3, 3 - 23 -
  • Only the shockwave has hitbox, hits fullscreen.

While the blockstun isn't great, the hitstun is fantastic. 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 easily link into j.DR for a metered SKD or snapback. This can usually be done by j.2H > j.236H+S or a back-to-corner 214S > j.236H+S.

  • Minimum damage: 280, 100*15 (1780).

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.
