Broly... about to lose? by edstir Broly... about to lose? by edstir
A What-If situation where Broly finds himself fighting a much more powerful opponent in a one-on-one battle.

I wanted to draw Broly having taken damage from a REAL fight. In the movies, his fights are always massively one sided, with him knocking around all the DBZ guys like rag dolls, then very abruptly losing the battle to dubious plot devices.

I put Broly here in a situation where he is faced with an opponent who is clearly stronger than he is. Broly has just taken a massive energy blast, he is furious and trying to warp his head around his own power, maxed out, failing him for the first time. He has to figure out how to beat his opponent.... IF he can.

He could be up against anyone strong enough to really damage him... SSJ3 Goku, Buu, Gogeta, Vegito... other universe guys like Hulk, Doomsday, etc. I generally place his power level SSJ2, but no where near DBM levels. He may be a really cool bad guy, but he's not invincible.

This was originally supposed to be a close-up, but I kept adding and adding to the drawing until it was a full body piece. I am uploading the close up where you can see all the details/rage in his face in a separate submission: [link]

Would anyone be interested in some Dragonball fanart prints like this?

A possible opponent that would cause this situation for Broly is Omega Shenron.

Omega Shenron: 1,900,000,000 (One billion, nine hundred million)

Legendary Broly: 1,400,000,000 (One billion, four hundred million)

This difference in power is not much, but it counts as a difference. Broly has approximately 73.68% of Omega Shenron's strength if the two are compared at full power. That's at about the same level as Omega Shenron, but still a bit smaller. In terms of pure power intensity, Broly rivals Omega Shenron, but only by a narrow margin.

In addition, their special abilities are quite different. Broly's special ability in Legendary Form is that his energy does not decrease. I am not a person who supports a gradually and constantly increasing power, but I don't believe that he does not have some special power that comes with his ultimate transformation. It would be more reasonable to believe that instead of Broly's power being infinite, it is his energy supply that is infinite. He always remains at his maximum energy supply, and has to vent it every now and then to prevent it from slowing down his body, or crushing him. Broly's legendary form gives him an indefatigable supply of energy, which is where his absurd power comes from. It never rises, but neither does it fall. It can only be drawn out of his body in great amounts as needed, with the same level of energy instantly supplied. In a way, Broly's energy behaves like Androids 17 and 18, even though his power level is vastly greater than theirs is.

Omega Shenron however, has an advantage of versatility, as he possesses all of the powers of the Shadow Dragons. This gives him many more techniques that have more varying effects. Plus, he can regenerate damage. Although his regeneration technique cannot increase Omega Shenron's power level, it prevents him from being defeated by Broly's savage assaults. Omega Shenron essentially has another advantage, as he has a much higher intelligence, and has a better grip on his sanity than Broly does, leading to better decision-making during combat.

The result? Broly finds himself being steadily pushed to his true limits as Omega Shenron marvels at his opponent's strength. Omega Shenron might be impressed, or might not be very impressed, but he would definitely take into consideration that Broly's infinite supply of energy is a formidable force to reckon with. Yes, I imagine that in a fight against Omega Shenron, this is what Broly would look like later on in the fight.

Your work is really well done , and pretty inspiring! I'm not a big fan of Broly but I still think he's awesome. The first Broly movie is easily one of my favourites and it's the first one I bought XD
You do your artline free hand or do you use the pen tool a bit as well? I looks free hand 8D
AND THE SMOKE FFFF I SUCK with backgrounds hahaha
Have a watch XD xxx
For me, the description of DBM is much closer to the real power of Broly, while the film are missed
SSJ3 Goku definitely. Those two have a score to settle after all.

Awesome pic.
