Broli was exiled to the harsh frontier planetoid known as Vampa in AGE 734 due to King Vegeta's jealousy that Broli's power surpassed that of his own son. His father Paragus attempted to rescue him shortly after his departure. However, Paragus' impatience lead to a crash landing that left them stranded there for the next 46 years...
In AGE 780, following the Tournament of Power and Freeza's subsequent resurrection, the tyrant returned to his evil ways and would proceed to begin the process of (attempting) to restore his organization to its former glory. The Planet Sharking soldiers are offered a monetary incentive as a reward for every new recruit. The ragtag duo, Cheelye and Lemo, happen to pick up a distress signal as they pass by Vampa. The two land and quickly locate Paragus and Broli. Paragus is eager to be rescued, and delivering such a promising recruit like Broli to Freeza is sure to net them a huge reward. Freeza is both surprised and annoyed to learn even more Saiyans survived his destruction of Planet Vegeta. When questioned about Broli's missing tail, Paragus reveals that his son wasn't able to control himself after transforming. It was simply too dangerous to leave it in tact, so he removed it. This piques Freeza's curiosity, who presses further about Broli's control issues. Paragus reluctantly explains that Broli can rarely lose control of himself, as evident from the scare upon his aged body. He constructed the shock collar out of parts from their damaged ships to help render him submissive during those episodes.
Freeza proceeds to tell Paragus about the demise of Planet Vegeta, which Lemo had already filled him in on during the trip. He's sorely disappointed that his dream of revenge against the king was stolen from him. The manipulative tyrant smiles as he bestows the good news. The Saiyan Prince survived as well. Paragus is delighted. Freeza explains that the prince and another Saiyan named Gokū
are currently living on a frontier planet called Earth. Freeza is happy to help him get his revenge against the royal family, so long as they leave Son Gokū
's final execution for him. Paragus has no issue with that request. Freeza muses to himself that he's happened upon another chance for revenge, and he won't even have to get his hands dirty this time...!Notes:
For a long time, I really disliked the (old) Broli. Partially because of his character, partially because of his fans, and partially because of his transformation. Specifically the "Legendary Super Saiyan" form, or at least the name. It really served no purpose other than to confuse fans by suggesting that the original golden/blonde/yellow Super Saiyan transformation Toriyama created for Gokū wasn't the one the legend was based upon. Which is ridiculous, since everything Toriyama has said before and after states the opposite.
However, with the introduction of Kale in a Universe where the Saiyans had no legend to begin with and Toriyama himself tackling his (newer, and better) version of Broli in the 20th movie, the form can be reevaluated for what it is without the stigma of the name. There are quite a few inconsistencies between old Broli, new Broli, anime Kale and manga Kale's various transformations. It's a bit of a mess and I'm going to attempt to try and sort it all out for my future material.
Also, for the record, names under the "Showcased Transformations" section are potentially tentative. Promotional material for new Broli coins his iconic form as "Super Saiyan (Full Power)", while Kale is labeled with "Super Saiyan (Berserk)". For the time being, I'm just going to stick with my "Berserk Super Saiyan" name for the form until something official (maybe) tries to clear all this up.
PS. Some years for events have been altered from the film's information to better fit with the project.
The series of submissions labeled under the title of DB Redux are part of a fan rewrite of the official series. Anything that you see in the art or description that varies from the original manga or anime sources is most likely intentional. While I appreciate that you are taking the time to look at my gallery and notice these differences, I do not require a comment on what needs "correcting" because it wasn't "originally like that".
However, if you'd like to discuss these changes, or the project in general, you're welcome to join my DB Redux Discord server
for the community members, an early look at finished & WIP character art and links to full battle power lists.
Thank you, and please enjoy!
