Dragon Ball FighterZ - Characters, Specials, and Stages Discussion

I'll be surprised if they add the short characters from the series. Their hitboxes would make them OP AF.

That'll be tough to balance if they do...

So far I'm down with Vegeta and Gohan. Android 17 and Trunks are the others I definitely want to see.

Yeah, I remember they gave Carl Clover that hat for hitbox reasons so they probably will avoid short characters.

Gohans SS2 hair does help his hitbox a lot though.
 
I would like to see my favorite tryhard (besides Vegeta), Broly!

Fuck you, yeah I said Broly! (God, I hate those all of those later films)


Pie in the Sky and not going to happen: Lunch. Perhaps it's best that she left the scene well before crap like Dragon Ball Super. It also means she will never been seen from in stuff like this.

I'll only accept Broly if it's TFS Broly.

Who am I kidding, he's probably getting in.

If there is a series were Lunch can be brought back that's Dragon Ball Super.

It's not ashamed to go back to it's Dragon Ball roots with scenes, characters and references.

 
This game is 3 on 3 so you'd want a big roster just to avoid mirror matches.

My hope is at least 21. (Divides nicely into 3)

Goku
Vegeta
Teen Gohan

Frieza
Cell
Buu

Piccolo
Krillin
Tien

Android 20
Android 18
Trunks

Zarbon
Recoom
Ginyu

Kaioshin
Videl
Mr. Satan

Zangya
Cooler
Janemba
 
In terms of Super characters (outside the ones introduced in movies), only Hit and Black/Zamasu have enough material to make moves out of. Maybe Kale, but that would just be taking Broly's moveset. Caulifa's cool, but what has she done yet that Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta don't already do. Even moreso with Cabba.

Having a vagina and a cool personality?
 
It would be neat if there were an optional mode where power levels match the show. So you could play as Beerus vs Satan, but any movement from Beerus would obliterate him. :p
 
Caulifa hasn't even officially had a fight yet outside deflecting one of Kale's attacks. We know next to nothing of her fighting style other then she is supposedly a fighting genius. I want both her and Kale in but they probably won't be at launch maybe dlc.
 
Having a vagina and a cool personality?
First one I've give you since it's very likely that 18 will be the only girl in this game, so more female would be welcome.

Second one can be said for most of the potential cast.

I'm thinking more of moveset potential if this game ends up only having 20 characters or so. So far, most of the moves seems to be replicating iconic scenes from the manga/anime, which would apply to any of the new characters from the new arc. We haven't seen her or Cabba do anything different from any other Saiyan. Just trying to avoid 1/3 of the cast just being Saiyan beam characters like every other DBZ game.

I'd say save her for DLC down the road.

Her Ki blasts look pretty unique tbh

But I agree DLC would be better
 
game is named DBZ not Super.
No it isn't, check the title again.
Besides, games being called Dragon Ball Z never stopped DB and GT characters from getting in, so even if this actually was called Dragon Ball Z it wouldn't mean anything.

Super hasn't aired in the U.S. yet, doubt it.
The US broadcast is a few episodes away from the first original arc of Super and that arc will be over by the time this game comes out
 
What I would like ...
Goku
Vegeta
Teen Gohan
Ultimate Gohan
Future Trunks
Perfect Cell
Frieza
Majin Buu
Piccolo
Android 16
Android 17
Android 18
Kame
Mr.Satan
Krillin
Yamcha
Tien
Videl
Majin Vegeta
Dabura
Kid Buu
Broly
Tao Pai Pai
Kid Goku
 
I want to be more realistic as a fan and knowing how tough game development is, As fun as characters like Dabura and Yamcha are, we don't need them for launch. I would love to be wrong though
 
Because he never appears in the video games.

No point hoping for someone you know isn't getting in.

(Also, he hasn't been relevant as a fighter since the OG Dragon Ball days, so, y'know...)
He's a fighter in 2 arcs of Super, one of which is based on the highly successful movie Resurrection F.
 
I don't understand the hate on Super. Yeah, it doesn't get good until episode 28 (just watch the movies), but even a handful of episodes before the Universe 6 tournament were fun. It's new Dragon Ball stuff written by Toriyama. The saiyans in Universe 6 give a unique perspective on the race, Hit and Frost have cool characteristics (don't wanna post in depth spoilers), and Goku Black and Zamasu are two of the best villains the series has had. I don't see how this is any less "Dragon Ball" than the original series or Z like some try to argue.

Super spoilers:

Think they'd update Trunks to have Spirit Bomb Sword, Galick Gun, etc?

Since we'll probably have two Gokus and Vegetas, one for Super Saiyan and one for Blue I'm guessing there might be two Trunks, one Z and one for Super. The form deference and move differences are obvious from there.
 
Why do people always forget to put Master Roshi in their roster lists?
Well mine wasn't really a roster prediction or wishlist, just something I did to allocate teams of 3 after a theme like KoF, and I couldn't think of an "Old Masters" team, cause I could only think of him and the crane guy, also a team with him and Yajirobe, but couldn't think of a third person (Launch?)
 
My picks:

Goku
Goku SSB
Vegeta
Vegeta SSB
Gohan
Gotenks
Piccolo
Krillin
Tien
Mirai Trunks
Videl
Mr. Satan
Master Roshi
Raditz
Freeza
Ginyuu
Nº16
Nº18
Cell
Dabura
Fat Buu
Kid Buu
Beerus
Brolly

Master Roshi's on the Universe 7 team & was in the Resurrection F arc. Roshi's been on the upswing as of late.

Why not just use DBS Future Trunks & kill two birds with one stone?
 
My list for now would be:

  • Goku (currently confirmed)
  • Vegeta (currently confirmed)
  • Teen SS2 Gohan (currently confirmed)

  • Broly (he's popular no matter what people say)
  • Beerus
  • Hit
  • Goku Black (base with the ability to go SSR)
  • SSB RoF outfit Goku
  • SSB RoF outfit Vegeta
Yeah, I know, too many Saiyans. I guess Ten Shin Han has a big chance to make it instead of someone like 16.
 
The latest episode was amazing for all fans, such a treat. Super has come a long way so yeah, I totally recommend watching it.

Edit: Roshi should freaking learn to fly already! Dude's slacking.
Everyone flying kind of took some of the fun out of it tbqh
Ringouts used to be a fun thing, so I have no idea how theyre going to do that in super

If they're separating Goku and Vegeta into two characters why not? People who don't want DBS Trunks still get Z Trunks.
 
(Shit, missed that typo)

How many characters from Z are missing in the Xenoverse games? (genuine curiosity, since I don't follow those games)
The main characters and main villains from the tv show are there, but several minor villains are missing, like Dabura, 19 and 20. Many forms are missing too, like Freeza's 2nd and 3rd forms, Cell's 2nd form, Super Buu's Gotenks and Gohan absorptions.

Several movie villains are still missing too, although the most popular ones are there (aside from Wheelo and Hirudegarn who are just too big, Garlic Jr, Android 13, and all henchmen haven't been added yet. Bojack is in through DLC, but only in base form).

Replace Future Trunks (DBS) with Tien and 16 with Yamcha and this is a pretty solid list.
