We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Wiz: As primal as the ground we walk on, and the air we breathe, anger can keep us alive or doom us forever.

Boomstick: Welp, on that fun note, let's jump into our season finale!

We cut to the combatants' name cards.

Wiz: First up is the Incredible Hulk, Marvel's mean green, world-breaking machine.

Boomstick: Then there's Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan from Dragon Ball.

We cut back to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

Wiz: Young Bruce Banner was a genius and the son of nuclear physicist Brian Banner.

Boomstick: Who was just the absolute shittiest dad ever. Complete with mom murdering and super baby slapping!

Wiz: Naturally pretty distraught, Bruce's trauma due to parental abuse internalized itself as a second personality. An angry childlike brute that just wanted to be left alone.

Boomstick: Even with that angry shadow in his head, Bruce grew up to be a leader in the study of gamma radiation. So, like, a total nerd who probably got beat up all the time.

Wiz: He had that covered. During a gamma bomb test, Bruce was caught in the blast zone and absorbed enough radiation to, well, die.

Boomstick: Except he kind of didn't? Well, not permanently. Instead, the bomb opened a door that let Bruce's alternate personality step into the world.

Wiz: Thus, using his anger, Bruce Banner transformed into the Incredible Hulk.

Boomstick: The Hulk is one of the strongest mother-hubbers in all of Marvel.

Wiz: He can lift a 150 billion ton mountain, shatter asteroids twice the size of Earth, leap into orbit from the ground, and even mess with the fabric of reality... by... punching.

Boomstick: Whatever a time storm is, you bet your ass he can punch it, and break time.

Wiz: The Hulk's absurd power is tied to his rage. The angrier he gets, the stronger he becomes.

Boomstick: And according to almighty gods like the Beyonder, the dude's got no known upper limit. Though, to be fair, his body can't always keep up and will revert to Banner under too much pressure, or too many puppies.

Wiz: Emotions like rage are governed by an area of the brain known as the hypothalamus, which controls Bruce's transformation. If it's damaged, his life could be put in jeopardy. Like when Hawkeye pierced it with a special arrow Bruce himself designed.

Boomstick: Good thing the Hulk's a total tank who can keep fightin' for days on end. Nothin' short of literal gods are strong enough to take him down.

Wiz: When he does take damage, his body can heal almost instantly, even if his flesh has been vaporized or he's been cut into literal pieces.

Boomstick: The Hulk can adapt to any environment imaginable, whether that's just straight up holding energy or surviving the depths of space.

Wiz: He's even battled the warrior god Thor, who has thousands of years of combat experience, and is fast enough to cross the universe in about five seconds, nearly 300 quadrillion times the speed of light.

Boomstick: No wonder the world's so scared of him. He's a green apple-flavored behemoth of destruction with the mind of a cranky four-year-old.

Wiz: While the classic Savage Hulk persona may be a childish brute, there are several, maybe even thousands of other personalities cooped up within Banner's shattered psyche.

Boomstick: Joe Fixit is a street smart bouncer, Doc Green is a super genius, and the Devil Hulk is the father figure Bruce never had. It's like an all-you-can-eat Hulk emporium in Bruce's brain. We got your Dark Hulk, Mindless Hulk, Hulk Squared, and Kluh, which is basically just Sad Hulk. It's kinda dumb.

Wiz: Despite seeing his human half as weak, Hulk and Bruce would finally unite against a cruel, uncaring world under a new persona, the Green Scar.

Boomstick: He brought a world war to Earth and tore the superhero community a new asshole. And by finally letting go of "Puny Banner", the Hulk became the unstoppable force everyone's always feared: a Worldbreaker.

Wiz: "World" is underselling it. The Savage Hulk once obliterated an entire universe with a thunder clap, and bloodied Hyperion with a single punch. The same Hyperion who survived a collision of two universes unscathed, which begs the question, how much more powerful is the Hulk at his maximum?

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: Ahem, uh, this one's all on me, Wiz.

Battle Scars

Boomstick: So, Hulk was once with this chick Umar, ruler of the Dark Dimension. Spooky. Hulk could only match her strength for six minutes, but he made up for it in round two when he came back as the Green Scar and kept Hulk smashin' for hours. It's likely they went until dawn. That's a 12 hour session of Hulk smashing at most. My man!

Wiz: Well, that would make the Green Scar 120 times stronger than the Savage Hulk. Multiplying that by the energy of the two colliding universes would yield... 960 duovigintillion joules! That's just a ridiculous number. All that from a single battle?

Boomstick: Battle? Oh, sweet summer child Wiz, that's not the kind of smashin' I meant.

Wiz: You've got to be kidding me.

Boomstick puts an arm around him.

Boomstick: I think I just invented a new field of science! The science of the f**k!

Boomstick: Now, you might be thinkin' this gamma stuff is nuts, and you're right, because it's Satan magic!

Wiz: So, turns out Gamma is actually directly connected to energy from hell. Drawn from Marvel's ultimate satanic being, the One Below All. By using his powers, the Hulk is literally channeling the devil.

Boomstick: It's also what kept him alive all these years. Every time Bruce dies, his soul is sent to hell, and can resurrect. Once returned to the world, his body will heal from whatever killed him. The dude literally can't die!

Wiz: And after a journey into the lowest plane of hell, the Hulk even faced off against the One Below All, and the ghost of his father.

Boomstick: In the greatest therapy session of all time, he thunder clapped those two assholes to smithereens! Talk about cathartic. From one man with crippling daddy issues to another, well done, sir.

Wiz: What else can you say but... Incredible.

Wiz: The Saiyans, a brutal alien race of interstellar conquerors.

Boomstick: And giant monkey men!

Wiz: These famous warriors are defined by three things: their tenacity, their pride, and their rage, which fuels their world-destroying power.

Boomstick: And no Saiyan can get even close to as pissed off as Broly.

Wiz: Despite being of low birth, the infant Broly was considered a prodigy by Saiyan scientists, due to his impossibly high power level of 10,000. Enough to survive a planetary explosion.

Boomstick: What, over 9,000?! Alright, alright, I'm sorry, I got it out of my system. Anyway, baby Broly was growin' up nice and happy until he was driven insane by baby Goku's incessant crying. Now, everyone complains that this is the lamest backstory ever, but have you played Yoshi's Island?


Baby Mario is seen crying in his bubble.


Boomstick: Gahhhh! Nope, make it stop!

Wiz: That's the original story, but with the new movie, that's no longer canon. However, despite developing different personalities, both of these Brolys are essentially the same character in different situations.

Boomstick: The 2018 one is our primary source here, but we'll look at the original, and similar Saiyans like Kale for more info.

Wiz: Whether it be jealousy for his own son or genuine fear of Broly's potential, Vegeta — the king, not the prince — abandoned Broly to a hellish backwater planet to die, with only his father, Paragus, as company.

Boomstick: Just in time for Vegeta to get nuked! The planet, not the king. Well, I-I guess the king, too. All thanks to the alien tyrant Frieza. Nice job gettin' rid of your crazy strong Saiyan baby! Idiot.

Wiz: Ironically, after decades of isolation, Broly and Paragus were found by Frieza, and drafted into his army to eliminate the Saiyans on Earth: Goku and Vegeta. The prince, not the planet. Or the king.

Boomstick: Thing is, Broly's not like the angry Saiyans. This guy's a gentle giant who would rather play with his big green alien dog than fight anybody.

Wiz: Paragus molded Broly into a deadly warrior whether he liked it or not. Like most Saiyans, Broly can harness ki, or one's inner life force, as an energy to enhance his physicality.

Boomstick: Or fire it from his hands in a super laser beam!

Wiz: Broly's bread and butter is his Eraser Cannon, a green fastball that'll cross thousands of miles in seconds and vaporize planets.

Boomstick: He can barf lasers with his Gigantic Roar, shower the landscape with Blaster Meteor, or just straight murder people with his Gigantic Orgasm.

Wiz: Gigantic Omegastorm.

Boomstick: Oh. That makes more sense. Imma rename my dick that.

Wiz: Ahem, his most powerful technique though is a small ki bolt that Broly can feed to rapidly grow in size and consume entire worlds, the Omega Blaster.

Boomstick: Broly's arsenal isn't just blowin' stuff up, though. He can use his ki for flight, telekinesis, and paralysis.

Wiz: Despite being stuck in the space boonies all his life, he's an adaptable fighter who can match seasoned veterans.

Boomstick: Basically, he learns as he fights. And while most Saiyans get stronger every time they almost die, the Brolmeister's strength is tied to his emotions. AKA, the angrier he gets, the stronger he gets. Hmm, doesn't that sound familiar?

Wiz: These power boosts are so great, he can match transformations like the Super Saiyan without even needing to transform.

Boomstick: But don't worry, he can do that, too. His Wrath State roids him up and makes him as strong as a Saiyan Great Ape without all the fur, or the shedding.

Wiz: Much to Frieza's chagrin, though, Broly had never learned to unlock Super Saiyan, and could not compete with Goku and Vegeta's stronger forms.

Boomstick: Solution? Murder Broly's dad to get him to transform.

Wiz: Despite the physical abuse he suffered at his father's hands, Paragus was still the only family Broly had, and losing that drove him over the edge.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: That's basically what happened to me when my dad left, except I turned into a super... alcoholic.

DUMMI floats by, holding a can of beer in his head funnel, Boomstick takes it and drinks.

Wiz: Although Broly didn't turn into a typical Super Saiyan.

DUMMI: You're welcome.

Wiz: Broly's new form was actually a Super Saiyan C-Type. This is an unleashed version of the repressed Super Saiyan A-Type, which are both precursors of the B-Type....

As Wiz talks, the camera zooms in on Boomstick as he thinks back to the day his dad left him, the voice of his younger self echoing in his head.

Little Boomstick: Daddy, you're goin' out for cigarettes again? Okay, I'll see you when you get back. Goodbye! Goodbye... I love you...

Wiz: Hey!

Boomstick: Wha?

Wiz: Are you paying attention?

Boomstick: Uh yeah... Uh, the Super Saiyan vitamin C form has the perfect energy control and let him wail on Frieza for over an hour. And this time I mean "wail" as in "fight".

Wiz: Um... right.

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: Broly's power was so immense, it even made Goku of all people turn tail and run.

Boomstick: Goku was able to clash with Lord Beerus with enough force to potentially destroy all of Universe 7, a humungous cosmic structure shown in this symbolic model.

Wiz: Making the Dragon Ball universe nine times larger than our own.[Note 1] Based on this, the shockwaves from their clash propagated 240 quadrillion times faster than light.

Boomstick: And after that, Goku became that powerful in his base form! Imagine how much stronger he was at Super Duper Pooper Scooper Saiyan.

Wiz: Or when fused with Vegeta into the almighty Gogeta, a being many times more powerful than the sum of his parts.

Boomstick: Broly got into a dick measuring contest with a friggin' Super Saiyan squared, and shattered reality!

Wiz: And at the peak of his rage, he became the warrior of myth, destined to appear once every thousand years: the Legendary Super Saiyan.

Boomstick: As a broccoli haired freak, Legendary Broly's power is so great that he needs to constantly let it out, or else he might self-destruct. I guess you could say his power is maximum!

Wiz: He's easily among the strongest foes Goku's gone up against. That includes beings capable of shaking an infinite void just by powering up, or merging with the universe and affecting alternate timelines.

Boomstick: In his original timeline, the Brol survived his energy exploding out of him all at once, and in canon, he took dozens of attacks from Gogeta Blue without any visible damage after fighting for hours.

Wiz: His power comes at a cost, though. In his berserker state, Broly is wide open against an opponent who's just as strong but far more skilled.

Boomstick: And after takin' enough damage, his rage will hit its limits and his power will fizzle out quick. He can even get knocked into weaker forms.

Wiz: Broly did lose his fight with Gogeta fair and square, but with new friends at his side to support him, and a new rival to teach him to temper his fury, the lonely Saiyan outcast finally got what his father could never give him: a family.

Boomstick: Aww. But that means he has even more to lose, so watch out, cause this Super Saiyan's temper... is Legendary.


Broly screams in anger and transforms into his Legendary Super Saiyan form.

Death Battle

The scene opens on an unknown planet, where Broly is seen resting peacefully. A pair of deer approach him, and he pets them gently with a small smile.

This tranquil scene is interrupted as the Incredible Hulk appears from a large explosion behind Broly and the animals, scaring them away. The Hulk looks around and sees Broly's back.

Hulk: Hey, spiky hair man! What's this puny planet?

Broly stands up as he powers up, an aura surrounding him.

Broly: You scared them away. You're making me angry.

He turns around to face his opponent, who approaches him.

Broly: You won't like me when I'm angry.

Now standing in front of him face-to-face, Hulk instigates the battle with a taunt.

Hulk: Show me.

Broly cocks a fist back to punch the Hulk, but the latter does not flinch. Surprised by how ineffective his punch was, he throws another one. Again no dice. The still-grinning Hulk returns the favor and sends Broly flying, who stops himself by skidding to a halt.

He did not have time to compose himself however, as a fist from the Hulk introduces him to an uppercut followed by a volley of punches. Sent up again, he is quickly brought back and thrashed about like a rag doll before being flung across the desert with heavy impact into a rocky structure. The Hulk stands up with an unimpressed look.

Hulk: Disappointing.

Broly rises into the air and powers up into his Wrath State. His power boost lets him send the Hulk tumbling through the desert before catching up and throwing another punch, following up with an uppercut that sends Hulk into the air. Broly then dashes into him with an Eraser Blow and throws Hulk into the ground.

Broly proceeds to examine the crater caused by the impact before hearing Hulk roar as he begins to charge at Broly. Broly proceeds to ready two green orbs of ki before using Trap Shooter to try and subdue his opponent.

Hulk: Yes! Get angry!!

Hulk proceeds to power through the onslaught before he pulls a large chunk of earth and smashes it upon Broly. Broly quickly breaks through the improvised weapon before charging at Hulk, sending the pair upwards before returning to the ground.

Broly and Hulk viciously attack each other with punches before locking hands. A green energy spreads from Broly as Hulk is subjected to the God Bind technique, paralyzing the Hulk long enough for Broly to grab Hulk's head before decapitating him. The scene suddenly cuts to the Green Door, zooming into the camera with focus as the dead Hulk's voice is heard.

Hulk: Hulk ain't just incredible, Hulk is immortal!

The scene cuts back to Broly as he looks at Hulk's severed head, not noticing his opponent's headless body get back up. He only shows surprise with getting grabbed on the shoulder by the headless body being punched away, allowing the Hulk to retrieve his head and reattach it. Broly can only look on in shock and confusion.

Broly: You are... monster?

Hulk: No! The DEVIL!!!

Hulk rushes at Broly before subjecting him to a barrage of punches, ending with the Hulk grabbing his foe by the neck. Broly growls before his pupils shatter as he roars while being bathed in a blinding green light.

Hulk looks at Broly as his hair is now golden, an indicator of Broly accessing Super Saiyan C-Type before Broly opens his mouth. An orb of ki appears in Broly's mouth before he unleashes his Gigantic Roar at Hulk's face, forcing him to release his grip as the resulting smoke clears to reveal half of Hulk's face being burned off before healing.

Broly flies backwards while firing ki blast after ki blast to try and keep Hulk away to no avail as he gets punched back before flying upwards. A green forcefield appears around Broly before he unleashes his Blaster Meteor attack, obliterating the landscape before five shots fly towards Hulk. The Hulk smiles as he pulls both his arms back.

Hulk: Hulk SMASH!!

Before unleashing a Thunder Clap that creates a shockwave which detonates the ki orbs, creating a smokescreen that allows the Hulk to leap at Broly, sending both out of orbit before Broly recovers and subjects Hulk to an barrage of attacks, creating an opening for Broly to send two ki blasts at Hulk.

The first blast stops at Hulk's stomach before the second one hits it, revealing it to be Omega Blaster as Broly feeds more ki into it and causing its size to increase further, as the Hulk is still grabbing at the omega-sized ki ball with his eyes glowing yellow.

Hulk: You think you're strong?! Hulk strongest there is!!

Hulk's glowing eyes begin to glow green as he becomes Worldbreaker Hulk, sending the Omega Blaster past him to destroy a planet and propelling him towards Broly. The pair get sent to another planet before shockwaves appear across it until it detonated, sending Hulk backwards.

Hulk: YES! SHOW ME!! BREAK THE WORLD!!! BREAK EVERYTHING!!!!

The planetary remains before the Hulk detonates to reveal Broly, now in his Legendary Super Saiyan form before he charges at Hulk.

Broly: I'LL KILL YOU!!!

Broly sends Hulk far away with a chest bump before charging at him. Focus shifts towards the entire galaxy as segments blink away before the rest of the galaxy follows suit as focus shifts to a separate planet before Hulk and Broly fly out from it, detonating the planet as they move away.

Broly and Hulk ready their fists before clashing, causing reality to shatter as the pair land on fragments. The roaring Hulk and Broly leap at each other before headbutting each other repeatedly, causing reality to shatter countless times until it fades to white before a green explosion occurs.

Broly is suddenly back at the planet he was on at the beginning of the fight, now in his base form. Confused, he looked around before seeing Hulk's disembodied hands in his own grip, which disintegrate into nothingness. Broly falls on his back, exhausted from the bout and his voice hoarse.

Broly: Throat... sore...

Broly looks near him to find one of the deer from the start of the fight walk up to him and lick him, causing him to smile once more.

Ko season 3

Results

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: This just in, breaking news, local area Saiyan literally too angry to die!

Wiz: The Hulk had numerous advantages over Broly. He was far more experienced, slightly faster, and potentially smarter, depending on which Hulk was in charge.

Boomstick: But since the Hulks fight for control in Bruce's mind, it wasn't guaranteed he'd get one of the geniuses. Still, his healing factor was nuts. Broly wasn't gonna put him down with anything less than complete annihilation.

Wiz: Fortunately for Broly, compared to his unbelievable power, the Hulk came up short.

We cut to the post-analysis.

Boomstick: I know what you're thinkin': Hulk could destroy a universe 120 times over, while Goku could only manage a lowly nine.

Wiz: Ah, but that was base Goku's strength. Broly's maximum, no pun intended, was far greater. Let's lay down some numbers.

Boomstick: As a Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly was stronger than Super Saiyan Gogeta, and took hits from Gogeta Blue without even bleeding.

Wiz: Based on the Daizenshuu, the blonde Super Saiyan 3 form is about 400 times greater than Goku's base. Applied to Goku's new base in Dragon Ball Super, he would already be 30 times more powerful than Worldbreaker Hulk.

Boomstick: And that's before factoring in Super Saiyan Blue and Gogeta, which are way stronger than Super Saiyan 3.

Wiz: With this in mind, Legendary Super Saiyan Broly is thousands, possibly millions of times stronger than the Worldbreaker we've seen. While the Hulk's strength can keep increasing, so will Broly's, and it's unlikely he'd be able to catch up before being overwhelmed. After all, there have been multiple times when the strain on Hulk's body turned him back into Banner.

Boomstick: With that big of a power difference, there's no way the same wouldn't happen here. Even stuff like breaking space and time are nothin' new to Broly and other Dragon Ball characters.

Wiz: And don't misunderstand the Hulk's encounter with the One Below All. There's no evidence he directly overpowered actual Satan, just dispersed his cloudy avatar.

Boomstick: Hulk even said he was just doin' that to buy time.

Wiz: Broly's flight allowed him greater maneuverability and area control, plus he could attack at a distance with Ki. When Hulk did close that gap, Broly's force field and paralysis protected him up close.

Boomstick: And it's unlikely Hulk could land a lucky fatal blow, considering Broly took hits from Gogeta Blue, who's millions of times stronger than the Worldbreaker. Y-You get the idea.

Wiz: That leads us to our last and most important question: Could Broly bypass Hulk's immortality to put him down and take the win? Surprisingly, yes.

Boomstick: Whenever the Hulk or Bruce die, his healing factor kicks in to fix whatever wound killed him in the first place.

Wiz: Meaning he still needs some element of his physical body that can heal itself in order to come back to life. The hypothalamus is key to this. Once it was destroyed by Hawkeye and his special arrow, Bruce took months to come back from the dead.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, DUMMI hovers in.

Wiz: With Broly's incredible power, there was no doubt he could vaporize Hulk and leave nothing left to heal.

Boomstick: Like, basically every Dragon Ball Z fight ever.

DUMMI: The Hulk was an incredible opponent, but the Legendary Super Saiyan's boundless power, arena control, range of techniques, and Saiyan rage spelled the end for the not-so-jolly green giant.

Boomstick: This Incredible fight was in-Saiyan.

We cut to the "Winner" card.

Wiz: The winner is Broly.

Later, Boomstick is having a beer by himself. DUMMI soon floats up to him with a letter in his funnel.

DUMMI: Boomstick. A strange green man in a zoot suit left a letter for you.

Boomstick: Eh, sounds legit. Gimme!

Boomstick reads the letter, and is noticeably shocked when he realizes who it's from.

Boomstick: ...DAD?!

Original Track

It is a hard rock soundtrack that contains lyrics representing the theme of anger and rage that Hulk and Broly have. The track also features a soft and subtle intro, highlighting the tame nature the two possess when not overwhelmed by rage leading to a steady buildup, referencing "Blizzard" from Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

Title

The title translates to "anger", "wrath", "fury", "rage", and similar nouns in Japanese, referencing how both combatants are fueled by rage. It is also a reference to Broly's Wrathful state, which is also known as "Ikari".

Cover Art

The cover art done by Luis Cruz depicts a human silhouette emitting a Super Saiyan aura on mountains as the Japanese word 怒り (ikari) appears in the background. The green sparks in the air are meant to represent the gamma radiation from Hulk.

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Hulk and Broly are that they are both powerhouses with a green aesthetic who are usually gentle and quiet, but when fueled by anger, undergo changes in mentality to become extremely powerful brawlers whose power and energy manipulation (of gamma radiation and ki, respectively) increases alongside their anger, to the point of being capable of destroying entire universes and challenging godlike beings despite being mortals, though at the cost of being able to control their power. Both suffered abuse from their fathers (Brian Banner and Paragus, respectively) because of their abilities, as well as from jealous adults (Brian Banner and King Vegeta, respectively), and have suffered attempts from others to control them as weapons (General Ross and Paragus, respectively) which affected the rest of their lives. Both have also been banished to other planets (Sakaar and Vampa, respectively) out of fear of their power.
    • Both also had a major character revamp in 2018 which boosted their popularity and power even more (The Immortal Hulk comic series and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, respectively).
  • This matchup was originally going to be Death Battle's 69th episode all the way back in Season 3 (albeit using the original Dragon Ball Z version of Broly), but Hulk ended up fighting Doomsday instead due to fan demand.
  • The YouTube release of this episode aired on the late Hulk co-creator Stan Lee's birthday.
    • If it weren't for the 2-week shift in the schedule from the delay of Red VS Blue, then this episode would've released on YouTube the same date Dragon Ball Super: Broly released.
  • This episode was briefly teased during Batgirl VS Spider-Gwen as a YouTube comment that Batgirl had posted while watching She-Ra VS Wonder Woman.
  • The ending of the episode referencing the Mask was meant to tease Macho Man VS Kool-Aid Man and the culmination of the infamous "Boomstick's dad" running gag. However, while it implies that Mask is the one who knows about Boomstick's father, the opponent from his episode would be the one to actually appear with that information.

Easter Eggs

  • Broly's "His power is maximum" meme is referenced multiple times:
    • Broly's analysis preview is titled "Broly's Power is Maximum in DEATH BATTLE!".
    • In Broly's analysis, Boomstick says, "I guess you could say his power is maximum!", with the meme even being shown on-screen when he says it.
    • In the post-analysis, Wiz says, "Broly's maximum, no pun intended, was far greater."
  • The two combatants use each other's iconic lines in the fight; Broly says "You won't like me when I'm angry." after Hulk scares off the pair of deer at the beginning of the fight, while Hulk calls himself "The DEVIL!!!" in response to being called a monster, the latter of which is a reference to Broly calling himself a devil in Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan.
    • Hulk calling himself the Devil is also referring to Devil Hulk, one of Hulk's more prominent personalities in the Immortal Hulk series.
  • The way Hulk grabs Broly by his leg to repeatedly slam him onto the ground is a reference to him doing the same thing to Loki in The Avengers.
  • The way Broly first kills the Hulk by ripping off his head is a reference to how the Hulk ultimately died in Hulk VS Doomsday.
  • When Broly's Gigantic Meteor increases in size, the constellation from Chuck Norris VS Segata Sanshiro can be see in the background.
  • Hulk's line "You think you're strong?! Hulk strongest there is!!" comes directly from Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
  • Boomstick's "This just in, breaking news, local area Saiyan literally too angry to die!" line is a reference to the "Man Literally Too Angry to Die" meme.
