Type: Ghost Goku!
Synopsis: vs. Everyone’s Fan Art, Again
Pros: So this movie was clearly just another excuse to use Broly again, most likely because he proved to be more popular. It’s set during the Buu Saga, so he get a Teenage Gohan, his girlfriend Videl, his little brother Goteks, and little Trunks. Now, I do like Teenage Gohan and Videl, with Videl getting most of the story and even getting a few hits in on Broly. Videl’s pretty cool, and more should have been done with her (like, in the entire Franchise). I like the match-up between Gohan and Broly, since both characters are described as having unlimited potential. I just wish that Gohan had beaten him without his dad’s help.
Cons: Once again, we get a story where the bad guy cannot be defeated without Goku’s help! Even if Goku is dead!! This leaves Gohan, once again, as the ultimate unfufilled promise. We get all these references of this kid supposedly being incredibly powerful, but when it comes down to it, he’s still behind Goku. That just really irks me. Most of the story involves Videl, Trunk’s, and Gotek’s search for the Dragon Balls. And if you don’t like bratty kids who literally pee on your favorite bad guy, you might want to steer clear. I mean, I thought it was funny, but fans of Broly might see it as very symbolic on what the writers think of him.

In it for the paycheck
Best Moment: Trunk’s peeing on Broly (the more I think about it, the funnier it is)
