Dragon Ball Super Broly is considered not as expected, really

Dragon Ball Super Broly Broly Childhood

Vicigers, as VCGamers has reported that Dragon Ball Super is arguably not as successful as Dragon Ball Z, although many say that the progress of the story is getting better. At first the story was very weak, but after the series found momentum with the character Goku Black. This series actually took a negative step by dedicating a considerable amount of time to the Tournament of Power which turned out to be just 'meh'. So it's not surprising that many DB fans are skeptical about the first film in this universe that chooses the title Dragon Ball Super Broly.

However, this film is far above the expectations of many people. Although the storyline in this film leaves a lot of big questions, Dragon Ball Super Broly manages to be one of the best entries in this Japanese franchise. Not only that, Broly actually proves that Akira Toriyama is still capable of writing deep stories with adequate character development. And here are 10 important facts in the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie that surprised Dragon Ball fans.

Broly's Childhood

Over the years, Broly was presented as a giant maniac who was completely devoid of personality. Which Broly is at the same time the lowest point in the transition moment of the Dragon Ball story. With the announcement that DB Super will canonize Broly, it's natural for many fans to assume that he will get an identical character as before.

However, Akira Toriyama really focused his attention on Broly. Rather than portraying him as a monster, Broly is shown as a kind-hearted young man who can't control his powers. In many ways, he became a lot like Gohan, only a little more cruel and clumsy. This friendly Broly made the Dragon Ball Super Broly audience really surprised and sympathized with him.

Broly Character Development

At the start of the film, there's really no indication that Broly will stick around as the main character. He will of course come face to face with Goku and Vegeta, two characters who when pushed to the limit will kill their enemies.

But the decision to let Broly live managed to expand the scope of the Dragon Ball Super series. Of all the Saiyans currently available, Broly is the only one who has the character's untapped potential to develop new plots. Broly has a story to tell and can only be told if he lives.

Goku is not the main character

Goku is almost always the most likely choice to save the Dragon Ball universe. Even when other characters defeat the main enemy, Goku always play a major role in ensuring the heroes will always win.

Interestingly, Goku doesn't play that role in Dragon Ball Super Broly. The climax of this film is when Gogeta tries to defeat Broly. This moment completely reverses the typical script of Dragon Ball which is of course a truly unique experience.

Goku Isn't Even The Main Character

Yes, Goku is not even the main character of this film. Of the three main leads, Goku is the last to be officially introduced. At its core, this is a story about Broly. The film follows the moments of his birth, development, and his first confrontations with the people who might forever change him: Goku and Vegeta.

But the film also doesn't say that Goku isn't the main character, but that's not the story. Broly is the only character in the film with a lot of clear story development. Aside from just a few barely significant moments, Goku gets very little character development in this film.

Goku Refuses to Use Ultra Instinct

Almost every time Goku gets a new form, he's always in big trouble. When he finally triggered Ultra Instinct in the Tournament of Power, everyone assumed that this would be the next step in developing his power level. Interestingly, it turns out that Goku can't trigger Ultra Instinct at will.

Instead of triggering Ultra Instinct to save the world, Goku fused into Gogeta instead of using his strongest powers. This revelation clearly provides an opportunity for Broly's character to develop his powers even further.
