Known as the Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly is a non-canon character who only appears in a couple of movies and various Dragon Ball video games.
Broly is The Legendary Super Saiyan born on Planet Vegeta, genetically selected to be the most powerful warrior in the Universe. Born with a power level of 10,000 at birth, even then he had power greater than most elite Saiyan warriors. Broly's incubator was next to Goku's and Goku's constant crying did not allow Broly to develop mental stability, and as an adult had poor mental development. King Vegeta feared that Broly would become too powerful and ordered his servants to kill Broly. Even though Broly's father Paragus protested, King Vegeta's mind was not changed. A Saiyan soldier was told to kill Broly and so the soldier stabbed Broly near his stomach area and he, along with his father, were thrown out of Planet Vegeta and left to rot.
But, when Planet Vegeta was being destroyed by Frieza, Broly's power allowed him to return to life along with his father and Broly created a force field around them to protect them from the explosion caused by Frieza. As a baby, Broly travelled the Universe with his father growing even more powerful and unstable. Broly reached the Super Saiyan level as mere child and even scarred his father by hitting him in the eye. Broly eventually becomes so powerful that his father ordered an alien scientist create a special control device to stabilize and calm Broly.
Paragus lures Vegeta, Goku and their companions to the New Planet Vegeta, where Broly remembers Goku and immediatley goes into a rage shouting "Kakarot!" While going after Goku, he transforms into the true form of the Legendary Super Saiyan. After transforming into The Legendary Super Saiyan, Vegeta is struck with grief and loses the will to fight for he believed Broly is unstoppable, Broly fights Goku, Gohan and Trunks and brutally beat them down. Then he decides to end it by blasting Gohan, but his energy ball was countered by Piccolo who exclaimed, "Do you always pick on the children first?" Before fighting Goku and his friends, Broly displayed immense power by destroying a planet with an energy ball the size of his fist, though the size of the planet was never confirmed. After Piccolo arrived he gave Goku and the rest senzu beans which healed them and increased their power level and again they began to fight Broly. But Broly still remained too powerful for them and continued to easily beat Goku and the rest, Broly demonstrated great speed by dodging the combined attacks of Goku and Piccolo. When Piccolo was knocked away and encountered Vegeta who watched the battle in fear of dying, Piccolo proceeded by calling Vegeta a coward and told him to stand clear of the true warriors. Broly defeated Gohan and Piccolo, and Vegeta finally found the pride to fight but was defeated along with Trunks.
After seemingly defeating most of the Z Warriors, Broly's father Paragus attempted to escape the planet on a ship for a comet was about to destroy the planet in a few hours, but Broly rushed to the scene and crushed his father to death and then said, "Hmph, did he actually think I would die just because this planet will be destroyed." After this Goku was the only one left able to fight. Broly proceeded by brutalizing Goku and he learned that the only way to beat Broly would be to gather the power of his friends. All of Goku's companions gave him power except Vegeta, who was too proud to lend power but eventually did, and Goku was able to defeat Broly by concentrating all of the power given to him in one punch. He then punched Broly in the area where he was stabbed when he was a baby which had seemingly caused his death.
Goku and his friends returned to Earth but before the planet could be destroyed Broly escaped in a ship and landed on Earth, but was horribly injured to a near death point. Broly was then trapped in the ice of the frozen north until Goten's cries reminded him of Goku's cries which causes him to wake up and break free of the ice. Broly beat Goten and Kid Trunks and was later beating Adult Gohan who had arrived on the scene to help. But then Goten used the Dragonballs to wish Goku back for a period of time, and together Goku, Gohan, and Goten fired a powerful Kamehameha wave at Broly which ultimately killed him.
A sample of Broly's blood made its way into the hand of an industrialist who created clone warriors. Broly's clone eventually awakens but gets covered with bio-liquid transforming him into the deformed Bio-Broly. But in this state Broly lost a great deal of his power, and he is then killed by Goten, Kid Trunks, and Krillin after seawater solidifies his body.
Broly's power level is by far the most frightening of all in Dragon Ball Z as the day he was born he was stated to have a power level at 10,000 which is roughly the power level that adult Saiyan elite warriors possess and was the final power level that Bardock (Goku's father) and King Vegeta had during their last hours.
Broly's Saiyan physiology grant him vast amounts of superhuman strength however being that he is The Legendary Super Saiyan his strength is essentially phenomenal and the greatest of all Saiyans. Broly's strength is at its greatest when he is in his Legendary Super Saiyan form which greatly increases his power to unbelievably limitless levels as his physical strength was enough for him easily overpower Piccolo (More powerful than Android 17), Full Powered Super Saiyan Goku (Equal to Perfect Cell in terms of power), Full Powered Super Saiyan Teen Gohan (Equal to Perfect Cell in terms of power), Super Vegeta (Physically stronger but slower than Perfect Cell) and Super Saiyan 2nd Grade Trunks (Vastly physically stronger than Perfect Cell but too slow) simultaneously usng physical strength alone and did not use his speed to his advantage.
Broly's Legendary Super Saiyan physiology supplies him with great amounts of superhuman speed to his advantage. Broly moves and reacts at superhuman speeds as even the combined speed of Piccolo and Goku's punches and kicks were to slow for Broly as he effortlessly dodged Piccolo and Goku's punches simultaneously with his eyes closed simply to prove his dominance and superiority over them. It is unknown whether how fast Broly is however it can be taken as a fact that Broly moves and flies faster than the speed of sound which is roughly 770 miles per hour considering that he was able to travel from galaxy to galaxy within days or so and it takes light that moves 186,000 miles per second thousands of years to reach the nearest galaxy while Broly reached the nearest galaxy in days however in the Dragon Ball Z Universe the laws of physics are different and sometimes do not even apply and the distance between galaxies is not known so it cannot be assumed that Broly travels that fast however it can be said that Broly flies far in the excess of the speed of light.
Broly's body grants him unparalleled superhuman durability. Broly's body is composed of super-dense tissue that enables him to withstand a lot of damage. As an infant Broly was able to withstand the explosion of planets being destroyed and several other events. As an adult Broly's durability grew to truly frightening proportions as even when his power was being restrained by Paragus' device he was able to withstand Super Vegeta's Big Bang Attack without even fazing or sustaining any physical damage as he simply brushed aside the attack, when Broly unlocked his true form when he transformed into The Legendary Super Saiyan his power was through the roof as he was able to withstand a full power Kamehameha Wave from Full Powered Super Saiyan Goku at blank point range without even fazing or sustaining any physical damage and he simply smiled at the attack. Broly has also noted that Paragus was fool believing that he would be die simply because a massive comet was going to collide with and destroy the planet he was on hinting that he has survived much more than that and Broly has survived attacks that could potentially destroy much more than single planets.
Broly is able to effectively use his Ki energy into energy shields, energy balls, energy bolts, scattered arrays of energy balls etc. Broly's energy blasts are abnormally powerful as a single energy ball the size of his palm was able to knock Krillin to a near-death point and the impact left him too physically hurt to even move. Broly has launched energy balls of ridiculous power as he effortlessly destroyed a planet with an energy ball the size of his palm with ease and he did it just in vain to see the reaction of the aliens who lived in the now destroyed planet.
Broly like all Saiyans, has the ability to levitate and fly using his ki.
In Broly: Legendary Super Saiyan Broly is seen in several scenes flying through space without any trouble, presumably like Frieza he can survive in space indefinitely. It is unknown whether or not Broly requires food and/or water.
Broly's superhuman physiology grants him a body that produces no fatigue poisons whatsoever. Throughout all of his appearances Broly has never been shown to tire and has never shown any sign of exhaustion. Broly is essentially virtually inexhaustible and tireless as his body does not produce fatigue toxins and he can exert himself completely in intense physical activity for an undefined period of time without his body producing any fatigue toxins or poisons.
Broly's Legendary Super Saiyan physiology grant him superhuman agility, bodily coordination and balance. Broly has shown great fighting agility being able to leap athletically high distances. Broly possesses superhuman balance and bodily coordination as he was seen standing on a ridiculously steep pole at over 50 feet high dodging the combined attacks of Piccolo and Full Powered Super Saiyan Goku with his eyes closed.
Broly appears to have had no proper martial arts training like Goku or most of the other fighters in Dragon Ball, he instead relies purely on his instincts and brute strength when fighting. His fighting style appears to be somewhat similar to wrestling.
Broly's personality is similar to that of a psychopath, as he generally exhibits tremendously uncontrollable rage, and is uplifted by the very idea of bringing destruction and inevitably crushing his enemies. He loves nothing more than to destroy things, as shown by his wanton destruction of planets for little more than intimidation. Broly also has a tendency to toy with his victims, as evidenced by his statement that, "If you'd just let me kill you all before, you wouldn't be dealing with this pain now," Broly enjoys playing with his feeble foes with sadistic sarcasm, often teasing his opponents with a plethora of "free punches". Broly himself rarely has anything to fear from any opponent he faces, which may have contributed to this. It is implied that Broly might have grown insane from living with the pain and fear endured by the father and son for so long.
