Broly's Ring (ブロリーのリング) is a device used by Paragus to mentally control Broly. Paragus wears the ring on his right hand, while Broly wears the associated "crown" on his forehead.



Paragus uses the control device on Broly

The device is used to restrain Broly from transforming into his Legendary Super Saiyan form, but it also causes noticeable physical side effects while he is a Super Saiyan, as it tints his hair blue and purple instead of the form's signature golden color, while also dulling his skin pigment. However, these side effects disappear soon after the crown is removed, as seen in the beginning of Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming. It presumably also works under long distances, as Broly remained under Paragus' control even when he was dispatched with Vegeta to track down the Legendary Super Saiyan at Planet Todokama, which apparently took about half a day for them to get to and come back. Paragus also implies that the crown, in addition to mentally controlling Broly, also saps his power level to the extent that it is lower than himself.

Broly's altered Super Saiyan state due to the effects of the mind-control ring

When Broly's waning suppression was at a critical level, the ring on Paragus' hand glows red with a warning beep. The crown is ultimately broken when Broly transforms into his Legendary Super Saiyan form while confronting Goku, the person to whom he has a deep hatred.

After an incident in which a teenaged Broly punches his father Paragus in the face and blinds him in the left eye during a path of destruction, he realizes that he has lost whatever influence he might have had over his son. Fearing for his own safety, Paragus employs a scientist named Krang to create a ring and crown to be used as a special control device to keep Broly under restraint.

Upon their completion, Paragus narrowly manages to survive adorning a sleeping Broly with the crown, and then quickly succeeds in using the ring to activate the crown's mental control. This event also caused Paragus to plan on using Broly's power to conquer the universe, as well as have the perfect opportunity to get revenge on Vegeta for his father nearly executing them. Paragus later has his son destroy a large portion of the South Galaxy to set the pieces of his plan in place, and presumably had him transform while attacking the Shamoians in order to sell the illusion. However, Broly enters a rage when he sees Goku during the events of the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan. As Paragus has trouble controlling Broly, he takes the control device to Krang and asks him to fix it, but Krang claims that the device isn't broken and that Broly must be acting out on his own. Broly eventually breaks the crown when he transforms into the Legendary Super Saiyan and goes berserk, attacking Goku and the others on New Planet Vegeta.
