Which other DBS characters could make it into Dragon Ball Fighterz? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Dragon Ball Fighterz received much fanfare when it hit store shelves in late January 2018. The game was released just as the most recent anime adaptation, Dragon Ball Super, was nearing the conclusion of its original run. Naturally, this meant we would receive more characters from the show as DLC.

Besides Beerus, who was introduced in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, two other new characters were added to the game’s launch roster, Goku Black and Hit, who joined the franchise in DBS. Joining them from the show were also Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan forms, each taking up character slots of their own. While Frieza’s Golden form also made it into the game, we won’t consider him a DBS character because he doesn’t start in that form.

FighterZ Pass 1 brought eight more characters to the game, with only Vegito (SSGSS) and Zamasu (Fused) originating from DBS. In FighterZ Pass 2, we saw half of the six additions all come from DBS, in the form of Broly (DBS movie), Gogeta (SSGSS), and Jiren. And earlier this year, Bandai Namco released Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku, who are also new characters from the anime. 

While FighterZ Pass 1 only added two DBS characters, the second introduced three. Considering the third season of DLC also has six characters to offer, we may see at least one more fighter from DBS make it into the game. But with that said, who could be the new addition?

Its speculation time again, and being a fan of the show, I’ll try not to base my choice solely upon how much I like them. I also won’t be putting all my Dragon Balls in one basket and will instead pick three characters from the show that I think could make it into DBFZ.



I almost included the entire family on my list, but I finally settled for Vados instead. Whis' elder sister and daughter of the Great Priest (Grand Minister), she is the martial arts instructor and attendant of Universe 6’s God of Destruction, Champa. Vados’ power was never adequately quantified in the anime, and we won’t be delving into anything from the manga. Still, it’s safe to say that her status as an angel means that she’s at least as strong as her brother Whis (stronger even), who is one of the mightiest beings in Universe 7. 

When I think of Vados’ moveset, Ultra Instinct Goku comes to mind. Picturing Vados with one hand holding her staff and the other behind her back, I see her effortlessly defeating opponents. The angel could incorporate counters, levitation, and teleportation into her attacks. Her movement will also most likely be effortless and graceful, with her biggest super probably related to the destruction of a planet, because why not?



Leader of the heroic Pride Troopers and a candidate for Universe 11’s next God of Destruction, Toppo makes a great choice. While I probably would have released him before Jiren, Toppo’s inclusion would not only satisfy his fans but would also bring into the game, what I believe would be a new grappler. 

In a game full of cocky characters, his humility and strong sense of justice would make a nice change. Giving Toppo the ability to transform into his God of Destruction mode would also make things fun, not just from his change in personality, but also his strength and skills. I expect it would work similarly to how Frieza’s Golden Form does, with a limit to duration and number of uses during a match.

Master Roshi

Master Roshi

Yes, you read that right, my third choice is the Turtle Hermit, martial arts master and pervert king, Master Roshi. Of course, this version of the character will be at one hundred percent of his power, as we saw during the Tournament of Power. That means his inclusion won’t be just for comic relief, even though that’s another reason why the old martial artist should be in the game.

Everyone I know was excited when we first saw Goku’s old master step up to the challenge and hold his own against some of the best in the twelve universes. Just like Toppo, I expect Roshi 100 to be a heavy hitter with some grappling moves, but he’ll also still have Kamehameha to fall back on if anyone tries to zone him.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Show

After a long silence caused by the ongoing pandemic, Bandai Namco has set August 16 to showcase what they have got in store for fans. This information includes news regarding its esports tournament circuit and, hopefully, a DLC character or two. So now that I have got you sufficiently pumped for Sunday’s announcement, my work here is done.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ Show will begin at 11:00 a.m. PT on August 16. You can catch the stream here on the DragonBallFighterZ Twitch channel.
