If Broly is now a Hulk style introverted female, I guess it's a better version. Then again the original Broly got triggered into hulk mode too.
*sigh* just depends what her trigger is. If it's Cabba crying, then we're gonna have problems.
Assuming she's from Universe 6. But she does look suspiciously like Cabba. She might indeed be a total calque of Broly. But they better find a good explanation for her form. A genetically exclusive SSj transformation always felt bogus to me. I'd be much happier if they said that's what always happens if a female Saiyan goes SSj. Or something.

Who cares about that Broly Girl, who the heck is this?

They're wearing gloves so, I'm guessing when the cloak comes off it'll be a really cool fighter.

[spoiler]We also got some pink teletubbie thing fighting Vegeta.[/spoiler]

I love these character designs, tbh - even if they're inspired by somethings - unintentionally or intentionally..

And, that guy ^ is obviously gonna be really strong if he's covered in a cloak. A common anime rule

The elephant God of destruction is 100% inspired by hindu god ganesha. Looks very similar.

Haha oh man, where to begin. This is great. This is classic Toriyama bait and switch. I can just imagine the creative process behind this...

*Toriyama gets character sheets from TOEI with a note*

TOEI: Toriyama-san we REALLY want to utilize Broli in some way in the show, so we designed a version of Broil that lives in Unvierse 6. Please touch it up for us Toriyama-san and send it back!

Toriyama: Hrm this isn't right... Wasn't Broli already in one of the movies? I thought Gohan defeated him or something? I guess they forgot...OK, I got it, I'll make an alternate version of Broli except this time it's a GIRL! TOEI will love that!

TOEI: *receives revisions* Oh my...uh, is this a joke? This is just a sketch of a little girl! Toriyama-san must've sent us the wrong sketch! Let's call him to make sure...

*calls Toriyama*

TOEI: Toriyama-san your revisions are a masterwork as usual, but you didn't send us back the Broli revision. Did you misplace it?

Toriyama: Oh, hello! No, it's there! I figured since you used Broli in three movies already, that a Universe 6 version of Broli would be female instead! So I decided it would make more sense for it to be a new character rather than Broli himself!

TOEI: ...Toriyama-san, with all due respect, our fans do not think Broli is canon! However they want Broli to be canon at the same time! So we figured, you know, maybe we could reintroduce Broli in a different way for our fans!

Toriyama: That's good, because I do not think Broli is cannon either! Do you guys want me to add a cannon to his back? I'd love to get the fans excited for the upcoming arc!

TOEI: ...Actually, Toriyama-san, this is JUST WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR! Genius idea! A female version of Broli! That'll be great! The first female Super Saiyan!

Toriyama: The first female Super Saiyan? Hasn't there already been female Super Saiyans in the video games?

TOEI: ...

Making her a "different" character is not trolly enough.

TOEI: ...
Nah it's more like

Toei: We'd like to have Broly or something resembling Broly. He really sells.

Toriyama: Alright I guess so.

Individual: Uh but sir would that mean Broly's movie happened in continuity?

Toriyama: Does it matter? If the young boys like it then I did my job.
Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

Maybe he's the new main antagonist/final opponent in the upcoming tournament. Then why make him look so dark and mysterious?

It's pretty obvious the Clown Group will be troublemakers in the very least.

They won't, and shouldn't. Despite my troll side desperately wanting them to milk this for all it's worth, pulling movie ideas is actually a very interesting idea that does have precedent in the extended (video game) universe, and I'd like to see them pull this off.

I'm also kinda hoping that her name will literally be Broly, thus overwriting the movie character in a way and causing endless salt.
Until the time comes when we get to know her name, I'm calling her Brolyne, though.

To clarify, I'd like the character to be treated with total sincerity, but simply be named Broli.

I'd be salty, I actually like the Broly movies. They're some of the few attempts at originality within the movie franchise. He's part of DB History, I wouldn't want him to be castrated.

The trolliest option would be to have it be that she isn't a LSSJ. Rather, All women who become SSJs get Buff

I like the Broli movies too. I've always thought the backlash against him was as overblown as the fanservice. He's a good villain, especially in Movie 8.

I still want this to be New Broli.

With threads like this who needs Mcdonald's fries? The salt is unreal lol
Toyotarō: … I get the feeling I’ve just heard something amazing (laughs). Lord Beerus and Whis turn up in Dragon Ball Super, and have become an unsurpassable wall for Goku and the gang. What do the two of them mean to you?

Toriyama: Well… First off, right now I don’t have any plans for Goku and Vegeta to surpass Beerus and Whis.
