-------20B-------Intro and Info--------------------------------------
Welcome to my guide and FAQ to the budokai tenkaichi 2 character Broly.
Broly is my personal (but not only) favorite character on BT2. I will cover
most of the guidelines I can think of in the following, but I am open to more 
so feel free to e-mail me comments, questions or suggestions at
d1sturbed_0n3@yahoo.com.

-------20C-------BT2 Encyclopedia------------------------------------
The following quotes are taken from Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2's 
encyclopedia and do not belong to me.

Broly:
     
      Broly was born on Planet Vegeta on the same day as Goku. He remembers
being tormented by the sound of Goku's crying from the neighboring incubator,
instilling in him a deep-rooted resentment toward Goku.
      Also, because King Vegeta saw the child Broly's tremendous power as a
threat, he ordered Broly's father to kill him, which caused Broly to resent
the royal family as well.
      Because Broly's sheer destructive power and brutal nature were too
dangerous, his father Paragas attached a circlet to his head that allowed
him to control his son. This made the teenage Broly quiet and expressionless.
      However, the memories reawakened by his chance encounter with Goku 
caused his powers to burst free, once again rampaging out of control.

Super Saiyan Broly:

      A chance encounter with Goku awakens Broly's suppressed memories,
and his powers burst to the surface. The circlet around his head normally
restrains Broly's brutal nature, but when he becomes a Super Saiyan, his
power is too great to be controlled.
      He displays incredible strength while in this state, brushing aside
even Vegetas fiercest attacks.

Legendary Super Saiyan Broly:
      When Broly's power is released, he transforms into the Legendary
Super Saiyan.
      Meeting Goku for the first time, Broly's hidden powers were awakened,
and the resulting surge of energy caused the headband that had previously
restrained his transformation to be broken.
      When he transforms into the Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly's true
brutal nature takes hold, and his power seems to rise without end.
In addition to hsi hated enemies Goku and Vegeta, Broly will destroy anyone
and anything that crosses his path.
      It was thought that Broly was destroyed along with New Planet Vegeta,
however, just before the planet exploded he escaped on a spaceship and
made an emergency landing on Earth.
     Afterward, in a near-death state, Broly was frozen. However, the sound
of Goten's crying awoke him from his deep slumber.

-------20D------Broly Info/Quotes------------------------------------

   Broly is amongst the slower/stronger character categories. He is generally 
used as a powerhouse that can absorb damage, and dish out more. Unlike most
other characters on BT2, all (or most depending on your tastes) of his blast 
attacks are useful, and you will find yourself using all of them in a evenly
matched battle. Broly has 3 transformations (including base) and are all 
useful in their own ways, of course some being more useful than others.

Broly (normal form):
      This is the basic form of Broly, and is the first one you will be able
to use if you cannot unlock all forms at once. The Z-items used to unlock
Broly's normal form are Son of Paragus + Hatred of Goku. This is Broly's
weakest form and is not recommended to use in important battles. This form
is much slower than Broly's others, and this is a major disadvantage. The
combos aren't that strong, and the smash attacks take a few seconds to
charge up. 
Rating 2/5

Broly (Restricted Super Saiyan):
      This is Brolys more useful form. The Z-items to unlock Super Saiyan
Broly are Broly + Super Saiyan. Broly gains exceptional speed with this
form, which makes him much more useful. His hair changes from black to
a neon aqua color. His circlet still remains, which shows he is not at full
potential yet. The blast attacks used by Super Saiyan Broly are exceptionally
useful compared to that of his base form. The restricted form will now on be
refered to as Super Saiyan.
Rating 5/5

Broly (Legendary Super Saiyan):
      This is Brolys final and strongest form. The Z-items to unlock Legendary
Super Saiyan Broly are Super Saiyan Broly + Breakthrough Limit. In this form,
Broly gains a massive amount of body mass, and the circlet on his head is 
missing. His hair is now golden, and spiking in various directions. 
This is where Broly shows his true power and psychotic behavior. Broly is 
suprisingly fast in this form, despite his massive size. I believe
this leads people to hate fighting this form, due to its massive 
overpowerment. This form is not recommended to use in a vs. battle against 
friends, as they will end up hating you. Although I would recommend using it 
if your friend is using a giant character (or perhaps a very powerful 
character like SSJ4 Gogeta) themselves.
Rating 4/5

Quotes:
Oh, it's you.
Foolish insect, don't waste my time!
Is that all!?
It seems you want to die.
You're too weak to do ANYTHING!
Stay out of this weakling!
My power is rising.... I am invincible!!
Struggle all you want, in the end you'll still be dead!
Scum is scum afterall.
Come on, now is your time to die.
Me, a monster? No, I am the DEVIL! Haha!!
It doesn't matter how many of you there are, you're all weak.
Kakarot, i'll start the carnage with you!
Kakarot, i'll put you out of your misery right now.
Ha, I will enjoy watching you die.
Ha, finished already?
KAKAROT!!!!!!

Other Combinations:

rush attacks)
Hold square: Smash attack (plus direction you wish to hit)

Combos (The x button will be represented by the word dash, as that is what x
does and all the x's in the following category will be used to represent
a multiplication symbol. A comma will represent what buttons that
should be pushed in an order and not at the same time):

Dragon Heavy hit combo:
During MAX POWER mode:
L2+X to dash towards enemy, Triangle to attack as you reach them,
tap square at least 3 times, then as much as you want afterwards (unblockable
combo, do be aware that this combo drains max power time very fast, so keep
an eye on it as you attack so you can finish the combo before it runs out)
Triangle to hit them away,(push when you have about 1 bar of blue MAX POWER 
energy left so you can finish the combo. follow it up with L2+triangle to 
blast attack them as they are blown away. Add this to a couple teleport 
attacks beforehand for a massive combo.





-------20F------Blasts, Ultimate blast-------------------------------
Broly (base form):
Blast 1:
L2 + Circle: Wild sense. Wild sense automatically teleport-dodges
one attack, this includes (but is not limited to) punchs, and energy
attacks. It will not dodge a ki blast.
This attack is OK, but sometimes is easier to dodge it yourself which
makes it a slight waste of 2 blast stocks.
Rating: 2/5

Blast 1:
L2 + Circle and up: Kakarot! This is one of the most useful blast stock (L2+
circle) attacks for Broly. It takes one blast stock, and it increases all
of your fighting stats (Damage, Speed, etc.) and instantly boosts you to
MAX POWER mode, allowing for some quick combos and blast attacks.
Rating 5/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle: Full power energy wave. Typical energy wave attack, if you
have played this game before you know what to expect. It can be used to save 
you from another beam attack in a beam struggle. It doesn't do that much damage
and cannot be charged up like many other wave attacks.
Rating 2/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle and up: Delta combination. Rush attack where Broly knocks
enemy around while teleporting. A few other characters have an attack
similar to this. For a rush attack it has a long distance, but still
does little damage. It should not be relied on.
Rating: 1/5

Ultimate Blast:
L2 + Triangle and down (MAX POWER mode): Eraser cannon. Horrible, horrible
horrible. This attack does barley any damage for an ultimate blast. And is 
very easy to dodge at a distance This is a bad way to use your blast stock up,
just go Super Saiyan already!
Rating: 2/5 

Broly (Super Saiyan):
Blast 1: 
L2 + Circle: Saiyan soul. Increases damage more than Kakarot! but is still not
as good in my opinion.
Rating: 3/5

Blast 1:
L2 + Circle and up: Kakarot! This is one of the most useful blast stock (L2+
circle) attacks for Broly. It takes two blast stocks (in Super Saiyan form), 
and it increases all of your fighting stats (Damage, Speed, etc.) and 
instantly  boosts you to MAX POWER mode, allowing for some quick combos 
and blast attacks.
Rating 5/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle: Eraser Cannon. A bit more useful now that it is a regular
blast attack. Moderate damage and can be charged now. 
Rating 3/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle and up: Trap Shooter. A very useful attack in which Broly
fires 6 small balls that seek out an enemy. This one is a bit harder
to dodge for most and does decent damage given how much ki it takes.
Rating 4/5

Ultimate Blast:
L2 + Triangle and down(MAX POWER mode): Super Explosive Wave. This attack is 
rather useful also. Works on enemies in close and mid range. It creates a 
massive sphere of explosive proportions and damages enemies inside, but CAN 
be guarded against. Has the ability to destory planet.
Rating 4/5

Broly (Legendary Super Saiyan):
Blast 1:
L2 + Circle: Explosive wave. This is a very small wave and is used as
a defensive tactic. It can be executed very fast (even while in a combo)
and knocks the enemy away doing little damage. It can be used to guard against
energy and rush attacks also.
Rating 2.5/5

Blast 1:
L2 + Circle and up: Kakarot! This is one of the most useful blast stock (L2+
circle) attacks for Broly. It takes three blast stocks (in Legendary Super 
Saiyan form), and it increases all of your fighting stats (Damage, Speed, 
etc.) and instantly  boosts you to MAX POWER mode, allowing for some quick 
combos and blast attacks.
Rating 5/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle: Eraser cannon: Same as always, does double damage compared
to the Super Saiyan form of it.
Rating: 4/5

Blast 2:
L2 + Triangle and up: Gigantic Hammer. A rush attack where Broly uppercuts
the enemy, grabs their face as they are flying up, slams them to the ground,
and finishs with a destructive punch which sends the enemy flying away.
This attacks rush distance is very short so do not use it from far away.
It does moderate damage, but it is still a rush attack so do not rely
on it too much.
Rating 3/5

Ultimate Blast:
L2 + Triangle and down: Omega Blaster. A normal ultimate blast. Fires a ball
similar to Eraser cannon, but more large and more sinister looking. It does
decent damage, around 10K (one health bar) and explodes the planet. Not bad
to use if you use Kakarot! first. (Legendary Super Saiyan takes a LONG time
to power up)
Rating 4/5
---------------------------------------------------------------------


-------20G-------Tactics when using Broly----------------------------

   Keep in mind that Broly is a powerhouse. As a Legendary Super Saiyan
he will not react to most normal punching and ki blasts, allowing you to
power up while being attacked by weak stuff. Take advantage of Broly's
balance of speed and power in Super Saiyan mode, and take advantage of the
quick smash attacks in Legendary Super Saiyan mode. Do not focus on 
Ultimate blasts that much with Broly, as it takes too much powering up for a 
moderate sized amount of damage. Avoid Broly's base form whenever you can, 
as there is not much advantage of using it.

you are thinking with me.

A: Keep playing the story mode to unlock Super Saiyan Broly, base form
Broly is very slow.

Q: How strong is Broly compared to other characters?
A: I dare not touch on this subject, as there is various opinions
and theories about this. However, I do not believe Broly had the

E-mail me any questions you may have, and if you wish to have it added to
this section. If not, I will do my best to reply via e-mail, please type
"BT2 Question" as the e-mail subject, so I can distinguish it easier.
Although I haven't got any yet, please keep anti-broly hate mail to yourself.
I can see somthing like this coming, and I would rather not deal with it.
I understand you may have your own opinion of Broly's power and since I
understand that now, don't e-mail me trying to convice me.

Many thanks.
