|“||Broly, the legend. And now he is free. Broken from my control, from anyone's control. He has become what I was honored and afraid he would become. The true Super Saiyan, a killing machine. He won't stop now. Not until he has destroyed this planet and the next. Until we reach our new home world.||„|
|~ Paragus, after Broly is unleashed.|
Paragas or Paragus (in Funimation dub) is the father of Broly and the secondary antagonist in the 8th Dragon Ball Z film Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan.
He was voiced by the late Iemasa Kayumi and Katsuhisa Hōki in the Japanese version, and by Dameon Clarke and Paul Bandey in the English version.
King Vegeta ordered the death of Broly when he was only infant, fearing that he would one day betray them. When Paragas asked the king to reconsider, Vegeta blasted him. Broly was stabbed and he, along with his father, are thrown into a hole in the ground. When Planet Vegeta was destroyed, Broly was able to protect them with his energy, and Paragas began to plot against the last surviving member of the Saiyan royal family, Prince Vegeta.
Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan
In the movie which takes place during the 10 days before the Cell Games, Paragus approaches Vegeta, and requests that he come and be the ruler of New Vegeta, a planet for any Saiyans who survived Planet Vegeta's destruction. Paragus then tells him, in order to persuade him, that he needs his help fighting the Legendary Super Saiyan, who had been destroying planets in the South Galaxy. Vegeta agrees and leaves along with Son Gohan, Trunks, Kuririn, Master Roshi, and Oolong.
Once on New Vegeta, Paragus tells them that there has been another attack by the Legendary Super Saiyan, and send Vegeta with Broly to investigate. When Son Goku arrives on the planet, Broly starts to go Super Saiyan, and Paragus uses a mind control device he placed on him as a teenager to get him back into check. Paragus then tells Goku of Broly's birth, and how he started out with a power level of 10,000, a level which is considered to be elite among adult Saiyans. Goku, who was in the bed next to Broly, constantly bullied him by crying, preventing him from sleeping and creating insanity in the newborn child.
Later, Broly attacks Goku once and is able to best the hero, forcing him to flee. Goku then realizes that it was Broly who was the Legendary Super Saiyan all along. Paragas barely manages to get Broly under control, and reveals that he wants to make Saiyans the rulers of the universe, using Earth as their home planet. Vegeta tries to fight Broly, but after not even scratching him, the Saiyan prince resorts his most powerful attack, the Big Bang Attack, and Broly, though unscratched, breaks free of his father's control.
Paragus tries to escape the planet, knowing that a meteor would soon hit. He hoped that Broly, who was now on rampage, would be killed in the process. However, Broly appears and crushes his escape pod and kills him.
Paragas later returned as a cameo in the movie; Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. He appeared as one of the residents from Hell that invaded Earth. It is unknown what happened to him during the invasion, it is likely that he was killed by one of the Z Warriors, or escaped, seeing how he did not appear in the Super 17 Saga.
