    Why didn't Beerus ever come to challenge Broly?
    Why did King Kai say Goku, Vegeta, and Nappa were the last 3 Saiyans?
    Why didn't Goku or Vegeta notice Broly's resemblance to Kale?

    Keep it going

    The short answer is Broly got put in for popularity and Toriyama doesn't give two shits about consistency.

    I also find it odd they never sensed Broly's power. Weren't they able to sense Buu on New Namek? And SSJ3 Goku from Otherworld? Or was that anime only?

    I'll put this in spoilers since I believe it's revealed in the movie throughout the fighting:

    Spoiler:
    1. The main reason why Beerus didn't fight Broly is most likely the fact that Broly's true potential comes from fighting him as he slowly adapts more and more to the opponent in question. As SSG Vegeta does beat his ass at first until he starts adapting to him wholesale and no sells a punch from him.

    2. Who the hell knows, how did Kami even know there was only 3 Saiyans left at all? Why didn't he spring to Goku that he was a Saiyan all along from the start?

    3. Most likely to keep OBD from exploding

    1 and 2 Brolys and his fathers power levels were pathetically low on a planet filled with giant monsters while Goku and Vegita individually had higher combat power than the whole planet they were on
    3)Because Kale and Broly are different if they were same Kale would win TOP

    Actually, both are classified as Mutants but their abilities as mutants seem completely different.

    Broly has insane adaptation on top of one of his transformations being able to tap into the powers of the Oozaru for a x10 boost in power.

    Meanwhile Kale can just explode into a whole new form that basically says fuck you to the typical powerscaling of the Super Saiyan forms and acts similarly to the LSSJ forms from the Broly movies. The Manga does handicap the form a big deal but the Anime makes it more inline with the LSSJ transformation as a whole(She apparently has no stamina issues while in the form, isn't slowed down despite the massive bulk of increased muscle mass and a random hint that she doesn't stop gaining Ki while in the form).

    Yeah, Kale would be busted if she had Broly's adaptation but her LSSJ form is no slouch considering if she actually has the will to train it, there is possible chances that it can completely overwhelm the weaknesses of say SSJ3 or even SSJG for example.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are saving that for an anime or manga thing. It practically prints money especially since Broly is far kinder in this iteration and they would actually be friends... to the shouts of anger of ODB.

    - Beerus was on babysitting duty. Also, even if he weren't, it's not the Gods obligation to get involved in our protagonists conflicts.

    - Because Kami was unaware of Broly's existence. :geg Higher tier gods than Kami weren't even aware of his existence, so why would earths guardian know of him?

    - Because they aren't even remotely similar.

    They stay in their physical prime until age 80, and then they apparently age rapidly. Paragus was already middle-aged when he became stranded on Vampa and forty years have gone by since then.

    Because Broly wasn't that strong until his growth against Goku and Vegeta.
    Because Kami was unaware of Broly and he wasn't coming to Earth for Kami to find out about him like Vegeta and Nappa.
    That's not a plot hole. More of a nitpick. Broly didn't even resemble Kale until he went LSSJ which was against Gogeta and was very brief, so it shouldn't be shocking they didn't make a comment about it during the short climax of the fight.

    Cause Broly in the begining wasn't worth Beerus's time and even then it isn't Beerus's job to interfere and he would have outright killed Broly.
    Kami has limited knowledge.


    No reason to, stop being stupid like IGN.

    Because he's lazy.

    Kami never said that, North Kaio did. And to answer that question, it's a retcon or a plothole Toriyama never really cared too much about.

    Because Kale's Broly form is Toei-exclusive.

    Why didnt Broly, Lemo and Chirai ask Goku if they could use the dragon balls to revive Paragus?

    Because Broly probably has 0 idea about the dragon balls, and even more probably doesn't know they can revive people. And Lemo and Chirai? They hated Paragus because of how he treated Broly (the whole shock collar thing), so they would never revive him, and they probably never told Broly about it.
