"One drop. That was all Jaguar's scientists needed to combine the best of their Bio-Warriors with Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan, to create the best fighter technology can build!"
Maloja explaining the creation of Bio-Broly to Goten and Trunks in Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly

Bio-Broly (バイオブロリー Baio Burorī), also called Drooly (ドロリー Dororī),[1] is a mutated clone of Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan. He is the main antagonist in Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly.


In his physical form, Bio-Broly in his base and Legendary Super Saiyan forms appeared identical to Broly in Broly - Second Coming, though without Broly's clothing. Largely because of lack of clothing, his tail is visible, compared to his template who was implied to have hidden his tail within his sash, although it ended up dissolved as a result of deformities as a result of his physical form not being set.

As a Legendary Super Saiyan in his syrupy form, his eyes become round and red, his mouth widens, he is covered in the brown Culture Fluid with a red area on his chest (implied from its pulsating after 18 kicked him to be his heart), and his golden hair flattens. When he powers up, the red areas turn green, and when he takes on a giant form his overall color changes to become more purple.


Whereas Broly had the capacity for critical thought and coherent speech, Bio-Broly lacks both. This mindlessness, coupled with the clone's retention of his source material's extreme levels of mental instability and rage, results in the clone being akin to a ravenous zombie that will attack anyone in sight. Interestingly, despite having never actually encountered Goku, he retains Broly's hatred of him and even inherited Broly's habit of shouting Goku's Saiyan name, Kakarot. Presumably, this is the result of some sort of genetic memory. However, the clone was shown to be slower to actually react to Goku (or a similar individual), as Bio Broly took several moments to transform into his Legendary Super Saiyan form after catching a glimpse of Goten, in contrast to the original Broly, who immediately became Super Saiyan the very second he was awakened from his coma by the cries of Goten, not to mention upon seeing Goku for the first time in years, he immediately started struggling to power up and fight Goku, only being stopped by his father Paragus with some difficulty via his control crown. Bio-Broly also seemed to retain Broly's hatred of being controlled, as when Jaguar tries to tell him off against attacking Goten and Trunks, the latter proceeds to blast Jaguar in turn.



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 New Planet Vegeta, he makes a frantic escape in his Attack Ball as the planet is demolished by Comet Camori. Over time, the pod finally reaches 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 revenge-filled 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 is unsuccessful and is 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 Dragon Team leave the vicinity of Natade Village, the people expel the village priest Maloja, whose fraudulent incompetence before the arrival of the Z Fighters led to the arrangement of a number of per-year human sacrifices. As he departs, Maloja discovers Broly's blood-tarnished Saiyan Pod. Realizing what he has found, he collects a sample of this blood and supplies it to wealthy industrialist Lord Jaguar, who prepares to pay the priest handsomely. The blood sample is processed by Dr. Collie's team of scientists and a clone is born.

Dragon Ball Z[]

When Jaguar "invites" Mr. Satan to his abode, intending to pit the martial artist against other Bio-Warriors in his collection as revenge for his defeat long ago, Android 18, Trunks, 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 Mr. Satan, who he believes to be the world's most powerful martial artist as a result of his claims of defeating Cell.

BioBroly 665

Bio-Broly's physical form is not set, and so he begins to deform

Trunks and Goten prepare to destroy Bio-Broly before he can completed, 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 by transforming into a Legendary Super Saiyan, however, the Culture Fluid that had been developing him had not yet finished, causing his physical form to not be set.[2] After being exposed to oxygen, which turns the culture fluid acidic, the clone is horribly disfigured to the point that he no longer resembles his source material, as well as exposing gaping holes in his chest, showing organs that were presumably his heart, turning him not into a perfect clone of the original Broly, but instead a giant slimy bio-mechanical monster. While Maloja is claiming his reward for supplying Jaguar and Dr. 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 powers up

Bio-Broly proceeds to rampage about the facility, destroying numerous stasis cells and exposing mounds of corrosive culture fluid to spill throughout the laboratory, drowning many scientists in the fluid, some of which begin escaping to the populated island below. He easily defeats Goten, Trunks, Android 18 and Krillin, even with the numerous advantages they gain throughout the encounter, such as Krillin cutting part of Bio-Broly's head with a Destructo Disc. Considering a new plan, Trunks looks at the Culture Fluid and how it was eating everything in its path whole. Trunks then taunts Bio-Broly, who was about to kill Goten, by mooning him and even flipping him off. Bio-Broly then looks at Trunks (who is still flipping him off) and then stops his assault on Goten and heads after Trunks. Trunks fires a blast at Bio-Broly, but then the monster dodges. Trunks, shocked, waits for his end until he (and Bio-Broly) discover that Trunks had split open an overhead container of culture fluid, drenching the monster (and the entire building) in a corrosive coat which dissolves his body. He returns shortly afterwards in a gigantic, Culture Fluid mass in his likeness, but ends up retreating into the depths, causing Trunks and Goten to assume he was defeated for good.

BioBroly 1299

Bio-Broly, maximized by the culture fluid, shortly before being solidified by ocean water, the fluid's repellent

Goten and Trunks go on to escort civilians away from the island, and with help from Mr. Satan they learn that water would neutralize the culture fluid. This prompts Krillin, Goten and Trunks to fire a combined Kamehameha into the sea, causing a tidal wave to flood the island and solidify the fluid, neutralizing the hazard. Suddenly, Bio-Broly emerges from the ocean and attempts a last ditch effort at killing Goten and Trunks. Within moments, however, he too is solidified. With this, Goten and Trunks strike the clone with enough energy to shatter him into pieces.

Daizenshuu 6's entry for Bio-Broly ambiguously indicated that Bio-Broly was the one Goku and Bubbles were discussing regarding Broly acting up in Hell and Grand Kai demanding that Goku and Pikkon were to stop him, or at least calm him down, due to the entry for the film constantly referencing the clone as "Broly" with no differentiation between the clone and his template.



In his physical form, Bio-Broly is referenced by Maloja as being an upgraded version of Broly (from Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming), as he is the Legendary Super Saiyan combined with Bio-Warrior technology.

In his syrupy form, he lacked some of Broly's most distinguishable traits such as his extraordinary speed and stamina. Despite lacking these features, the clone managed to retain Broly's recklessness, lack of compassion, abnormal strength, and apparent invulnerability to attacks. As Bio-Broly is a clone, he lacked Broly's battle experience and thus based fights on instinct and is effectively a mindless monster bent solely on following its destructive impulses, including his source materials deep-seeded hatred of Goku. He was also implied to be slightly weaker than his genetic template in his syrupy form, as he was shown fighting somewhat evenly with Krillin, whereas his template ended up easily blasting Krillin into a cliff-face before the latter could even move in to attack.

Soon after awakening, Bio-Broly's power shattered the culture fluid tank from which he was created, spilling the culture fluid. Once exposed to open air, the culture fluid became a very corrosive fluid that devoured any cellular matter that was not like itself and gained strength and energy as it consumed, allowing the clone to survive in it. He went on to endure Android 18's attacks with no damage or even signs of pain meaning he was at least twice as strong as her. He endured both Goten and Trunks' full power attacks with no signs of damage before defeating them with ease. He displayed no signs of pain after having part of his head sliced off by Krillin's Destructo Disc. Partly because of his resulting syrupy form's malleability, he also ended up developing a more overt regeneration ability, which could be seen where despite his head suffering a clean cut from Krillin's Destructo Disc, it easily reattached itself and even had portions of his hair grow back. The only weakness that this fluid possessed was that it could be solidified by water, including all the genetic material it had absorbed along with it. This glaring weakness ultimately resulted in Bio-Broly's demise.

Statements by guidebooks and authors

It was stated by Takao Koyama, that when making Dragon Ball movies that the next movie villain that Goku fought would always have to be at least stronger than the previous villain Goku fought. However as Bio-Broly was not fought by Goku on-screen, this statement does not necessarily apply to him.

Techniques and Special Abilities[]

  • Flight – The ability to fly with the use of ki.

Bio-Broly uses the Double Eraser Cannon

  • Eraser Cannon – A powerful green energy sphere, and the signature technique of the original Broly. He used it against Mr. Satan, Android 18, and Krillin.
    • Double Eraser Cannon – A more powerful version of the Eraser Cannon, which involves Bio-Broly firing two at once. He used this attack twice after his release, both against Goten and Trunks simultaneously.
  • Trap Shooter – Bio-Broly sends out a wave of small green energy blasts. Used against Trunks and Goten after the boys dodge his Double Eraser Cannon and attacked him with Ki Blasts. It is also one of the techniques used by the original Broly.
  • Gigantic Spike – Bio-Broly grabs his opponent's face and drives them headfirst to a wall. It is also one of the techniques used by the original Broly.
  • Bio-Hyper Beam – Bio-Broly's red Eye Lasers technique. He uses it twice in the film.

Bio-Broly fires a Mouth Energy wave

  • Regeneration: He shows this when he regenerated a part of his head that was cut off by Krillin. His regenerative abilities are implied to be a side effect of his body being made malleable as a result of his form not being set, but cannot restore him to his original form.
  • Mouth Energy Wave – A fluctuating, green beam of energy fired from his mouth. He fired it at Goten while the boy tried to leave the battle in order to save Mr. Satan from the culture fluid.
  • Explosive Wave – Bio-Broly uses an Explosive Wave to destroy his container when released by Jaguar's scientists.
  • Kakarot! – Bio-Broly powers up as he shouts Kakarot's name in anger.
  • Body Manipulation and Regeneration – Due to being drenched in the culture fluid, Bio-Broly's body becomes malleable, allowing him to recover from slicing attacks like Krillin's Destructo Disc. This malleability is further shown when he attacks Lord Jaguar by stretching his neck and twisting his head 180 degrees in order to use his Bio-Hyper Beam to blast the catwalk Jaguar was been standing on after the latter shouted at him to stop his rampage.

Bio-Broly, Legendary Super Saiyan Broly and Super Saiyan (A-type) Broly using Legendary Demon Unit in Dragon Ball Heroes

  • Legendary Demon Unit (伝説の悪魔ユニット) - A team ability used by two versions of Broly and Bio-Broly in Dragon Ball Heroes. The trio form a barrier and power up, greatly reducing the Stamina of the enemy team and permanently increasing their team's Power Level by 20000.
  • Super Genome Ray (超ゲノム光線) – Bio-Broly shoots Acid out of his mouth. It is his Super Attack in his Giant form in Dragon Ball Heroes and with the name Ultra Genome Ray in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.


Physical form[]

Legendary Super Saiyan[]

As Broly's clone, Bio-Broly has access to all of his source material's abilities, including the Legendary Super Saiyan transformation. After awakening for a brief moment and catching a glimpse of both Goten and Trunks, Bio-Broly immediately ascends to this form and proceeds to use it for the rest of the movie. His method of transforming into the Legendary Super Saiyan is slightly different from his source template, as he seems to become it in a subdued manner (without breaking the containment field) off-screen while Goten and Trunks attempt to destroy him.

Syrupy form[]

Bio-Broly's primary form appearing in the movie and video games, Daizenshuu 6 describes it only as a "syrupy form". Due to his regeneration not being completed, the Culture Fluid used to regenerate him is not able to give Bio-Broly a set physical form and so he changes into a syrupy form.

Legendary Super Saiyan[]

In his syrupy form, Broly is still in the Legendary Super Saiyan form, but his appearance changes; aside from his body appearing as brown/dark green liquid, it changes his eye color to red, gives him a red section on his chest that occasionally pulsates like a heart, and flattens his hair. Upon powering up, the red parts of Bio-Broly become green. In his syrupy form also makes Bio-Broly's body malleable, but greatly weakens him compared to his non-Culture Fluid covered Legendary Super Saiyan form.

Culture Fluid Absorption Gigantification[]

Bio Broly reappears

The giant Bio-Broly emerges again

Bio-Broly can take on a Giant Form by absorbing more Culture Fluid into himself. This ability is called Culture Fluid Absorption Gigantification,[3] and in this form, he is known as Giant Bio-Broly.[4] It increases his power, making him stronger than he is in his regular Bio-Warrior form, and also allowing him to liquefy himself. The liquid covering him is now purple in color. He takes on this massive form at the end of the movie but is then solidified by ocean water and destroyed by Goten and Trunks.

Video Game Appearances[]


Bio-Broly card for Dragon Ball Heroes

Bio-Broly makes his debut in a video game and as a playable character in Dragon Ball Heroes, introduced in the seventh mission of the original series (M7). His Giant form is also present, being a playable character since the seventh mission of the Jaaku Mission series (JM7). During the Broly Saga and Reborn Broly Saga, multiple copies of Bio-Broly appear as enemies.

Bio-Broly is a playable character in Dokkan Battle. His card also has a Dokkan Awakening.

Voice Actors[]


  • Bio-Broly (Syrupy form/Legendary Super Saiyan) vs. Android 18
  • Bio-Broly (Syrupy form/Legendary Super Saiyan) vs. Goten (Super Saiyan) and Trunks (Super Saiyan)
  • Bio-Broly (Syrupy form/Legendary Super Saiyan) vs. Goten (Base/Super Saiyan), Trunks (Base/Super Saiyan), Android 18, and Krillin
  • Bio-Broly (Syrupy form/Legendary Super Saiyan/Culture Fluid Absorption Gigantification) vs. Goten (Base/Super Saiyan), Trunks (Base/Super Saiyan), and Krillin


  • Bio-Broly's tank has 13 on it, which is a number considered unlucky in many traditions.
    • He is the second movie villain to be associated with the number 13, the first being Android 13. Interestingly, both were created artificially and had a vendetta against Goku (as Bio-Broly retained his source material's hatred of Kakarot, while Android 13 was another Red Ribbon Android created to destroy Goku as part of Dr. Gero's vendetta over the destruction of the Red Ribbon Army), and both were even created for the purpose of a vendetta (in Bio-Broly's case, it was for Lord Jaguar to expose Mr. Satan as a fraud as revenge for the latter beating him in school).
      • Ironically, bits of his character arc resemble that of his genetic template in the latter's debut film. In particular, Bio-Broly, similar to Broly, was utilized for the purpose of settling a vendetta against one of the other main characters (in Broly's case, it was Paragus wanting revenge on King Vegeta by luring the latter's son onto a doomed planet in order to kill him via a comet, or barring that, siccing Broly onto him, and in Bio-Broly's case, it was a trump card in the event that Mr. Satan managed to defeat the other Bio Warriors planned by Jaguar as revenge for beating him in a fight); Both also ended up being created by the central antagonists of the film (Broly was the son of Paragus, while Jaguar funded for the creation of Bio Broly thanks to Maloja donating samples of the original's blood at his crash site); and both also had struggled to control the Legendary Super Saiyan only for him to turn on them late in their respective films, with Goku or a similar character playing a major role in their fighting off their control (Broly had a crown placed on him that forced him to obey Paragus's commands, only to start resisting once Goku arrived on New Planet Vegeta, and Bio-Broly initially obeyed Jaguar's orders while fighting Android 18, only to eventually turn against the latter by turning around and using his Darkness Eye Beams on the walkway they were on, with Bio-Broly catching a glimpse of Goten being a major factor in his rampage).
  • In the Japanese version of Bio-Broly's alternate name, "Drooly" is a mixture of "dorodoro", an oozing sound, and "Broly".
  • Dr. Collie's computer shows Bio-Broly's aging process in the flashback of Bio-Broly's creation.
  • Bio-Broly is the first of three consecutive villains in the film who have very few speaking lines, besides grunts and other agitated sounds.
  • Trunks' method of defeating Bio-Broly, albeit temporarily, by having him to be 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.
  • Before turning into his syrupy form, Bio-Broly is seen with a tail, brown to be exact, which suggests that Super Saiyans keep their tails brown instead of gold[5] This is further supported with Bardock's Super Saiyan transformation in Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock showing his tail remaining brown.
    • Bio-Broly is the first Saiyan to be shown transforming into a Super Saiyan form while still possessing a Saiyan tail (as the film predates Dragon Ball GT).
    • Largely because Bio-Broly possessed a tail pre-deformation, he had the potential of accessing his template's Great Ape state, and possibly Super Saiyan 4. However, he was contained deep underground and thus never had a chance to access either form before prematurely deforming.
  • Bio-Broly's voice was slightly higher in pitch in the remastered release of his film.
  • While covered in the Culture Fluid, Broly resembles the God Warriors from Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
  • Although Bio-Broly himself never appears in Supersonic Warriors 2, he is given an indirect reference in one of Broly's alternate sagas in that game, where Android 18 attempts to angrily threaten Mr. Satan with the Zeni prize money he owed her for her throwing the match in a similar manner to the film, only for an amnesiac Broly proceeding to fight 18 and drive her off in rage at her threatening Mr. Satan (as the latter had nursed him back to health).
  • The cover for Volume 11 of Dragon Ball Z: The Movies depicted Bio-Broly with a different design. He overall resembled his genetic template more, even retaining his earrings, but was overall colored pale green and having dark green hair, and also had slightly melted skin (though not nearly to the extent of Bio-Broly in the final release).[6]
  • Bio-Broly is one of only two main movie villains that Goku never actually fought, the only other being Bojack (though the latter does end up being punched by Goku during his one-minute of rule-breaking late in his movie). While his genetic template Broly technically never fought him in Broly - Second Coming due to it ambiguously implying that Goku's presence was an illusion, he did fight him in Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan.
