Seeing two martial arts experts fight each other is always very special. Now, when the world of Dragon Ball is concerned, the comparison becomes even more interesting. Why? Well, the characters from Toriyama’s magnum opus are amazing and powerful fighters and the series as a whole contains some of the most intriguing fights in the history of anime. In this article, we are going to analyze one fight that happened in the series and, through it, we are going to tell you whether Gogeta is really stronger than Broly as the film suggests.
Gogeta has defeated Broly in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. Since that movie is canon, we can only ascertain that Gogeta is indeed stronger than the canon version of Broly. The non-canon version was significantly more powerful, but since it’s not an official one, we cannot really take it into account here; that is why Gogeta does, indeed, win.
The rest of the article is going to be all about comparing the two selected characters from Dragon Ball. You’re going to find out who Gogeta and Broly (the canon version, of course) are, as well as what their exact powers and abilities are. In the end, based on what we have presented earlier, we’re going to give our final verdict on who the stronger of the two characters is.
Gogeta and his powers
Gogeta is the result of the Saiyan fusion born through the union between Goku and Vegeta performing the Metamoran Fusion Dance, existing as Vegito’s counterpart. He first appears in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn and the Dragon Ball GT anime, however, his first appearance in the main story is in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie.
At V-Jump 2004, the producers announced his appearance in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, stating that Super-Gogeta’s power level is around 2.5 billion. In the second volume of Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files, it says that Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is dozens of times stronger than an ordinary Super Saiyan 4 in the Anime Comics of Dragon Ball GT: A Hero’s Legacy.
In the what-if saga of Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team, in the “Fusion Dance or Pothala Earrings” stage, where instead of merging into Vegito to fight Super Boo, they merge into Gogeta, it is shown that the Fusion is strong enough to defeat him. In the what-if fight between Vegito and Gogeta in the video game Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, the Elder Kaio-shin states that Vegito being the fusion with the Pothala Earrings is stronger than Gogeta and could defeat him, although Kibito-shin says that the Fusion dance is also not something to be taken lightly.
In the extended version of the Battle of Gods movie, Goku says that even if he fuses with Vegeta he won’t be able to beat Beerus, so they are still far from the power of a God of Destruction. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, in a special dialogue between Beerus and Gogeta, the God of Destruction considers Gogeta’s amazing power in Super Saiyan 4, saying “it’s not a bad thing”. Gogeta considers it possible to beat Beerus as a Super Saiyan 4.
Broly and his powers
Broly is one of the few surviving purebred Saiyan males from the planet Vegeta of Universe 7, the biological son of Paragus and reputed as a legendary Saiyan mutant in his universe, existing as the Universe 7 male counterpart of Kale. He was banished at an early age from his home planet by order of King Vegeta, who sent the young Saiyan to another border world known as Vampa when he was very young because he was envious that he was more powerful than Prince Vegeta IV, which caused a deep grudge in his father against the king and his family.
His power and strength far exceed that of any average Saiyan. This extremely high level of strength made King Vegeta envious, who decided to exile him from Planet Vegeta and send him to a distant planet since he was jealous that Broly had a power level of over 10,000 units being just a newborn baby, surpassing thus to Prince Vegeta, his precious son.
When his strength increases excessively in a short time, he starts to scream a lot because his power is causing immense pain in his body. After the events of the movie, Goku is surprised by his level of fighting and speculates that he may be more powerful than Beerus himself.
Broly was declared at the time as the most powerful opponent in the history of the Dragon Ball franchise, thus surpassing Jiren from the Dragon Ball Super Universal Survival Arc, so it is said that he is the strongest enemy or antagonist in the game. that Son Goku and his allies have faced. It is also indicated that his destructive power and the strength he exhibits are even much greater than that of the Gods of Destruction.
Gogeta vs. Broly: Who would win?
We could, actually, give you a proper analysis of the things we have written above but that wouldn’t really do the trick when compared with what we have decided to go with. Namely, as Gogeta and Broly have, indeed, fought in the movie, we thought that it would be better for us to just recap this fight to explain why Gogeta is stronger than Broly, as we have said above.
Seeing himself in trouble, Goku asks Vegeta if he knew anything about the fusion, to which he gets an affirmative answer and comments that it is thanks to Trunks that he knows that two bodies merge by, according to him, dancing like a fool, Goku answers him which is indeed the case and shows him the poses to perform it.
The Saiyan prince refuses, but Goku insists, to which Vegeta finally gives in. Goku and Piccolo show Vegeta the dance for him to learn. Both Saiyans then perform the fusion, but their fingers do not touch with the accuracy and precision that the fusion requires, resulting in Veku, an obese and weak form of the fusion.
After the 30 minutes are up, during which they are scolded by Piccolo, they both perform the fusion again but fail again. The Namekian states that the positions were not symmetrical, which resulted in a rickety form of the merger, having to wait another half hour. In the end, they managed to perform the fusion correctly, to Piccolo’s joy, but this joy would end when the merged being instead of going to fight thinks of a name for himself.
The Namekian urges them on, so they decide to keep Gogeta’s name and then head to the battlefield. When he finally shows up, he introduces himself to Freeza, who demands to know who he is. He then heads off to confront Broly, who was trying to attack Whis. When Gogeta appears, he calls Broly to fight him, causing the furious Saiyan to attack him immediately.
During the fight, although they are even, Gogeta decides to transform into a Super Saiyan and thus not give up the advantage. Broly is overcome and when their attacks collide they go to a multichromatic dimension, where he takes out all his power by transforming into Super Saiyan at Maximum Power, making Gogeta have no choice but to use Super Saiyan Blue.
After crashing into various dimensions, they return to the original and Gogeta laughs as he gets excited about the fight. Broly tries to destroy absolutely everything with a Chou Makouhou, but Gogeta avoids it by launching an energy wave at him, then ends his rush with the Stardust Breaker. However, Broly continued to draw energy and rampages in a desperate way, as Gogeta is in full control of the battle, dodging all the attacks and then attacking him, destroying more and more of the environment.
Gogeta readies the Full Force Kamehameha, as the enraged warrior finally gives in in terror, watching what will be certain death for him. However, Broly is transported to Vampa, causing the fused being’s attack to be lost in outer space. After watching Broly magically disappear, Gogeta stops Frieza from taking down Chelye’s ship. The disgusted Emperor gives up but tells Gogeta that he’ll be back before they get more powerful, to which Gogeta laughs. Since the events described above are canon, we can only affirm that Gogeta is indeed stronger than Broly in the current Dragon Ball canon.
