William Shakespeare's famous play, "Othello," is a story that is wrought with jealousy. Othello's best friend, Iago, manipulates Othello so successfully that the title character believes his wife has been unfaithful.
In his treachery, Iago describes jealousy as a "green-eyed monster which doth mock.." Chaucer and Ovid also use the phrase "green with envy."
Some believe the color green has been associated with jealousy dating back to the ancient Greeks. They believed jealousy occurred as result of the overproduction of bile, which turned human skin slightly green

Kale unlocked SSJ because she was jealous of Cabba being "too close" to Caulifla.
I noted that too on another site, would be funny if that turns out to be the official explanation :lol:

There's more of a chance of me tanking a hundred nukes rapid fire than this being how and why Kale's form is the way it is.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

Didn't Broly have green hair? I'm pretty sure that's where her green hair is from.

Yeah I dont think Toei has the balls to do something like that, but then again they did have Cocoa give Gohan a smack kiss, that may be as far as they would go, I mean even Helles a GoD finds Goku beautiful... that speaks volumes :lol:

She might transform into that slim form after her training is done for the tournament, we will get to see what broly could have become given the right training and time to grow
No way they would let that opportunity slide, I think her slim pupil version is the controlled state but I feel like they'll have her go berserk again once she takes Goku and Cauli's interaction the wrong way, like you know for Kale, Cauli is her neesan figure, her big sister, if her seeing big sis arguing with Cabba enough to trigger her then I dont even wanna know how she'll react once Cauli goes ''Kakaroto Aniki! come back to U6 with us! you can be our leader!'' aw all hell would break loose, then again we have Gohan to humble Kale if she does anything funny to Goku.

[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

It's confirmed Goku will fight Jiren and Vegeta will fight Ribrianne. After all the build up Gohan had he deserves a worthy opponent, Kale is the one.
Indeed I did say that, thats exactly the kind of relationship I want them to build up, her being humbled by Goku and she respects him in a yakuza way as her big bro ''aniki''

The foreshadow this episode was exactly the same as how the Goku V Gohan, both of them unconscious with a smile on their face while Cauli/Goku catching them, they're not even being shy about it anymore.

I'm pretty sure that they are not going to allow fusion in the tournament since it's two people fused into one.

Does anyone else see Broly or a male version becoming canon? They are pushing the LSSJ form hard! Broly has a new form in the 4D movie coming out and Kale herself. I think they are trying to explain the form itself with all the tingly talk. I wonder if this forms going to be something big as the series goes on.

Come on make it happen Super. Make it happen. Kale going Kakarotto yes please. Go all out. They already went full on movie 8. Do it. DO IT!

Maybe a male version but not Broly himself.

I'm officially waiting Janemba in Dragon Ball Super. While I appreciate Toyotaro taking one his moves in the manga, I want a full version of Janemba, with all his abilities, a cool design (keeping red and purple colors) and such. He's one hell of a villain who should appear in the main series, so make it happen. :)

I know you guys are joking, but kale turned SS because she didn't want to be useless to Caulifla. She was agressive to Cabba because she was upset with him though.

Kale has low self esteem. she was already jealous of cabba the moment he turned ssj because that made him special. Then on top of that someone she idolized (Califla) showed interest in him(cabba) she felt as though she(kale) was being replaced. Plus the fact that she failed transforming. so when cabba called her a pathetic excuse for a saiyan he basically confirmed what she already thought of herself and that combination of events and emotions triggered her transformation

I think that TOEI will try and use the LSSJ form to explain Super Saiyan Rage.

Cool images.

Boy, Caulifla does not look happy with Goku. :lol:

I feel like they had Kale run through Broly's entire moveset to quash any doubt that it is in fact the same form. But it also makes me wonder if there are other undiscovered "classes" or variants of Super Saiyan out there that we haven't seen yet. Like warrior class, berserker class, so on. Kale's ki was already green when she tried to transform on her own, so I think she was going to turn into that form no matter how she did it. Who knows what might be lurking out there undiscovered with a whole new race of Saiyans. :think:
