Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Ki: The fighting power and life force of a martial artist, a tangible energy derived from the user's vigor, courage, and mind. It can be used in a number of ways, such as to surpass the limits of one's body to greatly increase in strength, and it can be fired as blasts of energy or used to create defensive barriers. Along with his Saiyan blood, Ki acts as the source of Brocco's incredible power and abilities.
Saiyan Physiology: The physiology of a Saiyan, an aggressive warrior race of conquerors. Saiyans have the natural ability to control ki and to fly. While his lifespan is comparable to that of a human, Brocco will remain at his peak strength for much longer. One of the most powerful abilities of a Saiyan is their ability to grow stronger and stronger through combat, allowing Brocco to constantly push his own limits during a fight and rise to higher and higher peaks in power. This ability grants a substantial boost in power when Brocco is badly injured, allowing him to reach a whole new level of power once he recovers.
- Oozaru: When exposed to the light of the full moon, as long as he still has his tail, Brocco will undergo a transformation into the Oozaru, a massive, gigantic monkey with far greater power. However, Brocco has no control of himself in this form and will fly into a violent, uncontrollable rage if he transforms.
