Dragon Ball FighterZ – Characters Confirmed – So Far! (Edit with new date)

Edit:  In the article for Dragon Ball FighterZ by Gamers Elite below, the date was supposedly going to be on February 2018.  That date has been changed: January 26, 2018 in the United States and Europe on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.  Pre-orders are also NOW available.

This took me a TON of time to write and get together!

Earlier this year we heard a lot of chatter about a new Dragon Ball FighterZ game coming out. I know a lot of people personally who were incredibly happy to hear about this, but now that is been confirmed for the last few months, people are pretty much going bonkers about the idea of the game.

“The game play borrows concepts from several other fighting games, primarily the Marvel vs. Capcom series’ control scheme and team mechanics. Players each select three characters to form a team. One character is controlled, and can be switched with one of the other characters at any time. Players can also call one of their other characters to perform an “Assist” move, allowing simultaneous attacks and combos with the entire team. All three of the opponent’s characters must be defeated to win the game.”

While the game itself will not be coming out until February 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, you know there is still going to be a lot of hype behind this game. One of the things people really want to know is what characters are going to be in the game.

This is an official and confirmed list of characters that are going to be in Dragon Ball FighterZ, as well as a little backstory and a few images.

Android 16 Dragon Ball FighterZ

Android 16 is Dr. Gero’s sixteenth Android creation. He was initially designed to serve Gero’s vendetta against Goku, who overthrew the Red Ribbon Army as a child, but is later deemed unfit for activation.

Android 18 Dragon Ball FighterZ

Android 18 is the twin sister of Android 17 and Dr. Gero’s eighteenth android creation, designed to serve Gero’s vendetta against Goku. While her interests do not initially deviate from this expectation, her curiosity to activate Android 16, in spite of Gero’s orders not to do so, leads Android 17 to take it upon himself to murder Gero. Eventually, Android 18 becomes a member of the Z Fighters, as well as the wife of Krillin and the mother of their daughter Marron.

Captain Ginyu Dragon Ball FighterZ

Ginyu is shown to care deeply about his teammates, becoming incredibly furious when learning from Jeice that his three other subordinates were defeated and killed. However, he also can be quite harsh to his team members if they fail a mission, as shown when he harshly scolds Jeice for letting Burter and Recoome lose to Goku and running away from the fight. Ginyu is one of the few men who pure-heartedly reveres Frieza.

Cell Dragon Ball FighterZ

Cell was the ultimate creation of Dr. Gero, who came from a future timeline, designed to possess all the abilities of the greatest fighters to have ever inhabited or visited Earth; the result was a “perfect warrior”, possessing numerous favorable genetic traits and special abilities. He was one of the few Red Ribbon Androids not directly completed by Dr. Gero; he was completed by Dr. Gero’s Supercomputer. He is the main antagonist of the Cell Arc, which includes the Imperfect Cell Saga, the Perfect Cell Saga, and the Cell Games Saga.

Future Trunks Dragon Ball FighterZ

Future Trunks is the Saiyan and Earthling hybrid son of Vegeta and Bulma from an alternate future. By the time present Trunks was born, the timeline had been altered by Future Trunks’ and Cell’s trips to the past. Therefore, the two Trunks had completely different lives (as opposed to those who lived before the Time Machines arrived, they lived exactly the same lives as their counterparts until the point at which the two timelines diverge: three years before the androids arrived).

Frieza (Final Form) Dragon Ball FighterZ

According to an interview done by Shonen Jump with Toriyama, Frieza’s final form was purposefully made to look small and less menacing: Toriyama wanted to go against the expectation that villains and monsters become bigger and meaner looking the stronger they are. In his first form, Frieza usually wears battle armor with a purple chest plate. When in his true natural form and also his golden form, Frieza wears his race’s ultimate Bio Suit, the Z Fighting Suit. When in his Mecha form, his body is equipped with a permanent Cosmic Suit. In the Universe Survival Saga, he has a halo on his head due to being dead.

Goku (uh duh!) Dragon Ball FighterZ

He is the adoptive grandson of Grandpa Gohan, the son of Bardock and Gine, the younger brother of Raditz, the husband of Chi-Chi, the father of Gohan and Goten, the grandfather of Pan, and later the ancestor of Goku Jr. Cheerful, tenacious and also a bit naive, Goku is a Saiyan originally sent to Earth as an infant with the mission to destroy it.

Goku (Super Saiyan Blue) Dragon Ball FighterZ

Goku (Super Saiyan Blue) is a form that uses the power of Super Saiyan God with the first Super Saiyan form. This form can be accessed by absorbing the powers of god, activating them and then transforming into a Super Saiyan, or through vigorous ki control training with a deity with Godly ki and then obtaining that Godly ki for oneself as seen with Vegeta in the Super anime. This form exceedingly surpasses its predecessor, Super Saiyan God

Innocent Buu Dragon Ball FighterZ

Although he is one of the most powerful entities in Dragon Ball Z, Innocent Buu is often playful and displays his childish personality, revealing he destroys things for fun simply from old instructions from his master, stopping once told what he was doing was wrong thanks to the Grand Supreme Kai’s personality showing in him. Though he is playful and silly, his evil side is readily apparent, especially shown when his eyes widen, and steam shoots out of the holes on his body. His extreme anger issues show themselves often, when he is even slightly made fun of, or starts to lose in a battle.

Krillin Dragon Ball FighterZ

Krillin does not have a visible nose, however, he seems to be able to smell until someone mentions it (like Goku during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament): he smells the diamond Bulma took from the Pirate Cave, and he smells the enticing trap meal in the Mirror spaceship. In the Dragon Ball: Bouken Special, when asked why Krillin does not have a nose, Akira Toriyama responded “Krillin has a physical idiosyncrasy that allows him to breathe through his skin.” Earlier on in the series, and throughout the entire manga, Krillin had white eyes. However, later on, they seem to have disappeared completely, making the inside of his eyes the same color as his skin.

Nappa Dragon Ball FighterZ

Nappa is a tall and muscular man. Though his Saiyan genes give him the appearance of someone in their mid-30s, Nappa is approximately 50 years old when he is first shown in the series. At this time, he looks identical all the way to the time of his death; though his structure in his younger years shows him to be a bit slimmer. His thin mustache tends to change with each part in his life; as at middle age of 30’s his mustache smaller in comparison than it is now; by the range of the Saiyan Saga, Nappa’s mustache is slightly larger, longer, splits into two sections (noting he tends to shaves his facial hair on occasion) and then it grows back fully during the year one radius to Earth.

Vegeta is the prince of the fallen Saiyan race. He is the eldest son of King Vegeta, the older brother of Tarble, the husband of Bulma, the father of Trunks and Bulla, and the ancestor of Vegeta Jr. Alongside Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo, he is easily one of the most prominent characters in the series, receiving more character development after being introduced than a number of other characters.

Tien Dragon Ball FighterZ

Tien received this scar at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament during his fight against his former mentor, Mercenary Tao, who caught him off guard with his Hidden Blade attack, scarring him for life. Throughout the series he was worn a large number of outfits, however, out of all of his many outfits, the most iconic one most likely has to be the Gi he wore during the Android Saga; which consists of a green one shoulder tank top, a pair of baggy green pants, red-and-green wristbands, black boots with yellow covers and a red sash. Tien’s non-combat outfit typically consists of a Hanfu-style robe with loose pants and boots, in contrast to the Manchu-style clothing that most Chinese characters in the series wear.
