Broly is shown to have a tail as a baby.

Broly as a baby

But the tail is not there when he is an adult or kid, which means that he has the potential to become Super Saiyan 4. The only time he has a tail is when he was cloned, as shown in Bio-Broly. The time span in which Broly does not have a tail is: Broly — The Legendary Super Saiyan and Broly — Second Coming.

Do we know if Broly was able to transform into Super Saiyan 4 in Dragon Ball Z?

The only time he turned to Super Saiyan 4 is in Dragon Ball Heroes, which is a game and not canon.

    Could you at least try to separate clauses in your sentence? It seems like you have 3 or 4 sentences crammed into that single sentence that now composes the body of your question. As for the title, do mean to ask if Broly can transform into a SS4? I can help with rewording and grammar, but I need to know what you're trying to ask.

Broly wasn't a canon character and Super Saiyan 4 isn't a canon transformation, so the idea of Broly being a canon Super Saiyan 4 is kind of madness.

Broly is a character from the movies, in which there is no hint that he or anyone else can become a Super Saiyan 4, and SS4 is from GT and there was no mention of Broly in GT. If he went SS4 in some game, then in the canon of that game he is able to, but otherwise I would say no, there is no reason to think Broly could be a SS4, as even his normal Super Saiyan form is in fact pretty weird and not particularly similar to the main characters' Super Saiyan transformations.


No, Super Saiyan 4 was never a canon - all of the Dragon Ball GT episodes are filler and Akira Toriyama, the manga author, had never made SSJ4 and the next official transformation or rather power up is "Super Saiyan God" - achievable by 5? (I don't remember) Saiyan powering up one Saiyan.

  • But broly was super saiyan 4 in dragon ball heros game in a cut scene And that's not cannon becuse its a game Feb 23, 2015 at 20:29
  • Iirc Broly wasn't canon either. Mar 22, 2015 at 15:06

No Broly was not able to transform into Super Saiyan 4 in Dragon Ball Z. Actually no character was able to achieve Super Saiyan 4 in Dragon Ball Z as Super Saiyan 4 was introduced in Dragon Ball GT.

I will not go into details of what is canon and what is filler as the other answers have explained it well.

However, Broly had a Legendary Super Saiyan form - the only Super Saiyan transformation that Goku has not been able to achieve in the series, canon or otherwise. How strong the Legendary form is in comparison to Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 etc. is open to interpretation. Still one can say quite surely say that Legendary Super Saiyan form was considerably weaker than Super Saiyan 4.

So, no Broly never achieved Super Saiyan 4 and he never got as strong as Super Saiyan 4 either.


No because there is no Super Saiyan 4 it is not canon to DBZ however in DBGT Vegeta turned into SSJ4 with the help of a machine build by his wife Bulma so possible that he can since his a saiyan only based on a series GT not DBZ.
