This is a list of notable techniques used by Broly which have appeared in various media spun off by the Dragon Ball series.

Physical and Natural Abilities

Main article: Saiyan

  • Superhuman Senses - In Xenoverse 2, Broly is shown to possess the superhumanly accurate sense of smell which he naturally possesses as a result of his Saiyan biology. Due to his animosity towards his nemesis Kakarot, Broly has apparently committed his scent to memory allowing him to accurately detect even faint traces of Goku's scent. If the Future Warrior is currently training under Goku, Broly will smell Goku's scent on them and demand they bring his nemesis to him. His is also shown to be able to detect similarities between the scents of close relatives such as siblings, as he will comment that Raditz's scent is similar to his brother.
  • Superhuman Durability - Like most Saiyans, Broly possesses a naturally superhuman durability and able to shrugged off attacks that would kill weaker species such untrained Earthlings. For example, he was able to survive being stabbed by a knife during his execution as a baby. However Broly's durability is shown considerably high even by Saiyan standards especially in his Legendary Super Saiyan form, as demonstrated by his ability to survive Full Mastered Super Saiyan Goku's Super Kamehameha at point blank range without suffering any damage at all. Additionally, Broly managed to survive both Goku's final attack and the destruction New Planet Vegeta by Comet Camori, despite the attack critically injuring him as it had hit the area where Broly had been stabbed as a baby effectively reopening his old wound and caused him to fall into a comatose state when his Attack Ball landed on Earth. His durability even by Saiyan standards had earlier been alluded to by Broly himself, where he, shortly after killing Paragus and hurling the remains of both Paragus and his Attack pod into Comet Camori itself said "did he really think I would die just because this planet was about to explode?", in reference to the then-impending destruction of New Planet Vegeta via Comet Camori. Additionally, in some of the video games, Broly even manages to survive being blasted into the Sun by Gohan, Goten, and Goku's Family Kamehameha.
  • Saiyan Power - The Saiyan ability to grow stronger as a Saiyan fights and grow stronger after recovering from a near fatal injury. Broly naturally possesses this ability which allowed him to become stronger after he recovered the injury inflicted by Goku on New Planet Vegeta. In the video games, Broly manages to unlock his Legendary Super Saiyan 3 form after surviving being blasted into the Sun by the Family Kamehameha.
  • Ki Sense - Broly may have possessed the ability to sense Ki, as he was the first to sense Goku inside Paragus's Spaceship and tensed up before they could board. His possessing the ability to sense Ki was also supported in one of his storylines in Supersonic Warriors 2, where Broly managed to sense Cell's presence and had an angered reaction (presumably, he sensed Goku's DNA inside Cell).
