The Super Saiyan form is a thing in the past but is still a big part of the whole Dragon Ball Series. A new Super Saiyan form is always present in every iteration of the franchise, especially when there’s a new powerful villain introduced. Dragon Ball Super Broly is giving light to one of the oldest Super Saiyan transformations.
Dragon Ball Super Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan
The Legendary Super Saiyan form is a form that was once exclusive for Broly and was first seen during the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan. Even in its earliest days, the form can beat the Super Saiyan form, which was the biggest transformation at that time. During the Tournament of Power, Kale introduced the form into the canon. Kale’s Legendary SSJ form is a mirror of the one we already saw in Broly decades ago.
But it seems like there are some changes in this form in Dragon Ball Super Broly movie. Twitter user @Cipher_db posted a card from the Lotte Bikkuriman crossover that advertises the movie with its wrappers. Bikkuriman is a wafer that has stickers and, in this instance, a card from the movie as a promotion. This particular card is a Broly card which describes Broly’s most powerful form: the Legendary Super Saiyan.
With the help of @Hermes98, the translation of this Dragon Ball Super Broly card is as follows, “Broly Full Power. A gigantic full power transformation triggered by intense sorrow, with pupil-less eyes and a 3-meter tall, muscular frame! He transforms into a demon said to be a uniquely-evolved Super Saiyan?! Rumor: Since he was violent and had a power level of over 10,000 from birth, he was fitted with a control device that restricts his movements?!”
Instead of intense hatred as the trigger, Broly’s Legendary SSJ transformation in this movie is triggered by intense sorrow. Now, that’s a surprising turn of events from if it will happen to be a fact, and no one can confirm it yet until the movie is released. It seems like Super Saiyan transformations will be more complex in the future after Dragon Ball Super Broly.
