Broly threatening Goku and Gohan in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan

Gigantic Hammer (ギガンティックハンマー Gigantikku Hanmā) is a Rush Attack used by Broly in his Legendary Super Saiyan form.

Overview[]

First, Broly strikes the opponent down with a massive clothesline. Then, he grabs the opponent by their shoulders and picks them up to vertical kick them up into the air. Next, he teleports in front of the opponent as he grabs them by their head and flies down to smash them across the ground. Finally, Broly picks up the opponent by their head, and uppercuts them in the stomach, knocking them away up into the air, inflicting a huge amount of damage.

Usage[]

In Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly uses parts of this attack during his battles against Goku. While fighting Broly on New Planet Vegeta, Goku knees Broly in the chin. However, Broly is unaffected and attacks Goku with the Gigantic Hammer rush's shoulder grab and vertical kick, kicking him up into a cliff. Later, after easily withstanding Goku's Super Kamehameha, Broly attacks Goku with the Gigantic Hammer rush's head grab and stomach punch, injuring and temporarily knocking him out of the fight while mockingly asking what Goku's Kamehameha was supposed to be. Broly also utilized a similar uppercut to his Gigantic Hammer maneuver against Future Trunks shortly afterward, although in that particular case, it connected with Trunk's chin.

In Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming, Broly uses part of this attack, the Gigantic Spike, during his battle against Gohan. Gohan flies up to punch Broly, but Broly is unaffected and attacks Gohan with the Gigantic Hammer rush's head smash, smashing him into the ground and causing the ground to collapse.

Video Game Appearances[]

In the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, it is named Overwhelming Attack.

In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, it is named Gigantic Hammer and is one of Broly's Blast 2 in his Legendary Super Saiyan form. In Budokai Tenkaichi 2, the attack only consisted of Broly punching his opponent up in the air, then he grabs them by their head, and dives for the ground at high speed before slams the opponent away with a destructive punch.

In Raging Blast, where it is also used by Broly in his Legendary Super Saiyan 3 form.

In Raging Blast 2, the grab and throw part of the move is Broly's signature attack named Grab in all of his forms.

In Xenoverse, the technique appears in the form of a variation called Gigantic Slam, in which Broly grabs the opponent and creates a green energy sphere in the same hand before throwing the opponent to the ground with the resulting energy blast. This variation is among the few skills in the game that the Future Warrior is unable to learn or obtain.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, there are three variations that feature only the head grab/punch portion. The first is Heavy Smash which is the weakest of the three, while Buster Smash is stronger than Heavy Smash but weaker than Hell Smash the third and strongest variation. All three versions use the same attack animation.

In Xenoverse 2, Gigantic Slam returns as one of Broly's Super Skills in both his Legendary Super Saiyan and Supervillain playable forms. Like in Xenoverse, it is among the few skills in the game that the Future Warrior is unable to learn or obtain. However, after the 1.09.00 Update, it can be added to Broly's custom skillset through Partner Customization. According to its skill description in Partner Customization it warns that the user is left wide open after using it thus the skill leaves Broly open to attack.
