Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the most anticipated fighting games of 2018, and much of this hype for fans is due to the inclusion of a brand new character designed by Akira Toriyama, the mysterious Android 21.
Nothing too impressive but this is important to note since Super Saiyan Vegeta had very different ki blasts.
Including the ki blast rush which this one does not have still his ki blast can be used in combos you just have to treat it.
Differently, his specials have also changed the bit though you will recognize the few of them.
Quarter-circle for them. The special button throws the big bang attack instead of a super this time. it’s only a special attack that costs no meter but it does take a bit longer for Vegeta to launch this.
Making it easier to block since you have a bit more time to react to it.
However, if Vegeta is right in the opponent’s face, you’ll actually damage the opponent while gathering the energy for the BIGBANG attack.
Which means you can use this in combos and you can also cancel this attack into a super making it an efficient way to end a combo.
This attack can be performed on the ground as well as in the air but the aerial version will always shoot the BIGBANG attack downwards.
There’s absolutely no tracking of the enemy Vegeta always shoots it at the same angle and from this position the aerial BIGBANG is the attack that Vegeta will perform as well.
Next, we have his super dash cake with quarter circle forward and an attack button and although this looks similar to Super Saiyan Vegeta.
This one has a lot of variances because after you initiate this attack, you can follow it up twice with any of your attack button and each one of them will have different properties. So you can initiate with the quarter circle forwards and the light attack for instance. Then press the medium attack for a flurry of kicks. And then finish with a heavy attack for more damage and a wall bounce.
That’s of course just an example as will now break down what each of the attack buttons does during this special.
First, we have the activation quarter circle forward and the attack button the light attack has Vegeta lunging forward with a single kick. The medium attack version has Vegeta jumping up also with the single kick. And the heavy attack version is very similar to the light attack version but it is faster and has a lot more range.
Next, we have the first follow-up light attack button throws a single kick, medium attack button unleashes a series of kicks, and a heavy attack version also kicks only once. But you can actually cross up to the opponent’s back if you pause slightly before the third input.
And for the third input, we have a single kick on the light attack version.
A single kick that causes a wall bounce on the medium attack version and the heavy kick button damages. The opponent a bit more before also causing a wall bounce at the end.
Now keep in mind that every time you press. the heavy attack button you’ll spend one bar of meter.
So be careful because Vegeta can quickly drain your meter with this attack. And before we move on just a couple more things about this attack.
Even if you don’t land the first kick, you can still perform the two follow-ups. And as you might expect you can perform this move both on the ground and in the air.
Vegeta blues final special attack is a full sentence so we didn’t include it all in the lower third on a scale of one to ten. I’ll give you a three is the full name of this move with quarter-circle backward.
And an attack button similar to the dash kick the light and heavy attack version has Vegeta lunging.
horizontally with a heavy attack version being a bit faster and having a bigger range. And the medium attack version has Vegeta jumping upwards. All three versions are command grabs, they cannot be blocked you either get out of the way or you crouch to avoid this move.
You can perform it’s both on the ground and in the air and after you land a hit to the light attack version can’t be really followed up by anything. But the medium and heavy attack version is very much Ken. This is a great move if you want to bring the opponent back to the ground because that’s actually the only place where Vegeta can throw level-one supers. And speaking of supers Vegeta has three of them to level one supers and a level three that can be upgraded to a level five.
The first level once super is the Niagara pummel with quarter-circle forward and the right bumper, Vegeta jumps forward and punches the opponent. If this punch lands he’ll do this whole animation but it can only be activated from the ground. And also this super is a bit tougher to follow up than most level one super as it requires precise timing when you call in for a follow-up.
You can’t just hold down the assist button like in most cases if you want to call for an assist after Vegeta super. Then you might want to go for his other level one the iconic Galickgun with participle fourth and the right trigger.
Vegeta will always shoot the gallic gun upwards and once again he can only do the super wall on the ground. It’s a pretty straightforward super that synergizes pretty well with his big back attack or his unique ki blast.
Finally, his level 3 is the final flash with quarter-circle backward and the right bumper or trigger. It’s very similar to Super Saiyan Vegeta’s level three but this one can be upgraded into a level 5 if you hold down the right bumper or trigger.
It’s a horizontal ki wave that covers the whole screen and if it lands you can easily hold down the buttons for more damage. As far as out of combos go when you match the light attack button he does this. And when you match the medium attack button he does this.
Vegeta’s command grab is one of the best in the game. He lunges forward a considerable distance so it becomes easy to punish overly defensive opponents. This is also your go-to movie if you want to bring an opponent back to the ground for you to land. One of your level supers because neither of the me acara pummel or the gallic gun can be performed while in the air.
The only super that Vegeta has in the air is the final flash and you might not always have the meter for it. In a way his supers are the exact opposite of Goku blue which I can definitely appreciate.
Super dash kick is even better this time around to mix up your opponent. The heavy attack button in the first follow-up attack crosses up to the opponent’s back which again is awesome if your first two attacks are blocked and you want to do some left-right – mixing up.
But even if you don’t mix up this attack can be very hard to punish. Since the opponent never really knows how many kicks you’re gonna throw with Vegeta before.
You actually stop since there are so many ways you could perform this attack make sure to stay unpredictable. And when you’re starting out careful not to spend the heavy attack button because it can easily just eat through your meter gauge.
Finally, the BIGBANG attack is a lot easier to block this time around but it’s also free doesn’t cost any meter. It’s not the best zoning tool in the game but it does damage the opponent immediately if they’re close to you.
So my guess is that it will be used for combos way more than zoning but it’s still one of those few long-range attacks that this version of Vegeta has. So in certain situations keep it in mind because it might be useful.
Overall, Vegeta is a very comfortable character. His specials are simple but very strong and his normals are pretty standard which some people might look as a negative but that makes him an easy character to perform comedy.
At the first trailer, fans easily recognized this is the work of author Akira Toriyama. Because of the similarities between the two versions of Game and Manga.
Of course, the similarity is not only in the character’s appearance but also in the smallest of moves and movements.
The fighting style of each character that we have seen in the manga is made very vivid and accurate. And it made fans like reading a comic book in front of the eyes.
And a few days ago, the Dragon Ball FighterZ Easter Egg event, Bandai Namco made a shocked fan with Awesome Dramatic Finish. Yes, that awesome!
These “dramatic scenes” will create symbolic moments from the series when certain combat, battle, and combat conditions are met.
And now, j
Dragon Ball FighterZ is more than just another anime fighting game. Hidden in the game are Easter Eggs known as Dramatic Finishes and Dramatic Intros. A Dramatic Finish or Dramatic Intro in Dragon Ball FighterZ is either an opening or an ending sequence that offers a special cinematic pulled straight from the anime. While a few of the Dramatic Finishes in Dragon Ball FighterZ have been shown off by Bandai Namco and other media outlets, few people know how to actually trigger a Dramatic Finish. This article covers have to execute a Dramatic Finish in Dragon Ball FighterZ, as well as all known Dramatic Finishes and how to perform them. We’ll continue to update this article as more Dramatic Finishes are found in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
To execute a Dramatic Finish in Dragon Ball FighterZ you must be on the correct stage, using a specific character, fighting against a specific character. With all of that in place, you must end the match by connecting a neutral Heavy Attack. If you finish the opponent with anything other than a neutral (standing) Heavy Attack, you may not get the Dramatic Finish. Keep in mind some Dramatic Finishes require the stage to be destroyed, which means you’ll need to finish off one of the opponent’s characters with a super move that destroys the stage (or the opponent can take down one of your characters).
For a Dramatic Intro, all you have to do is lead off with a specific character, fighting against a specific starting character, and fighting on the correct stage. If the conditions are met, you’ll get a special Dramatic Intro between the two starting characters on each team.
It should be noted that both Dramatic Intros and Dramatic Finishes can be skipped by either player. There’s no way to avoid having your special cinematic skipped, so you’ll just have to hope the opponent wants to watch it as much as you do.

As the information we have given, at present, DBFZ – the most anticipated fighting game in 2018, introduced 24 characters. Of course, this is only the current figure, in the future, Dragon Ball FighterZ promises to give fans more unique characters.
Besides the familiar names such as Son Goku, Vegeta, Kid Buu or Gotenks, a character is also attracting a lot of attention is Android 21. According to the publisher Bandai Namco, Android 21 is a special character and Exclusive in Dragon Ball FighterZ. That means you can not see this mighty cyborg in any other entertainment product, including comics or movies.
According to Dragon Ball Wiki, Android 21 was designed by Akira Toriyama (one of the co-authors of Dragon Ball). This robot appears only in Dragon Ball FighterZ as one of the strongest villains. Possessing a super brain, Android 21 is even smarter than Dr. Gero, who is behind the crazy plan called the Red Ribbon Androids.
Android 21 is described as a girl wearing glasses with long red hair. However, this is just a normal shape. As for the transformation, Android 21 will have white hair and pale pink skin. When switching, Android 21 has many similarities with Majin Buu, but personality is as aggressive and brutal as Kid Buu. Android 21 has a bad habit that is always feeling hungry and always wants to swallow the most powerful warrior she encountered.
Specific capabilities of Android 21:
Usually, I stay away from videos about scans but this time I want to talk about this character.
I don’t want to talk about gameplay there, there are a few screenshots in there that shows some of these characters abilities. But until we see actual gameplay we don’t really know how they fit into the game or why this character is unique why she plays differently. Yes, it’s a sheet its Android 21.
Everyone knew she was gonna be the last character it would be super weird if she wasn’t playable. But I know until Bandai Namco actually confirmed she would be playable there was still that lingering doubt in the back of our mind.
Now we have confirmation but it’s not just Android 21, it’s Majin Android 21. Which kind of confirms some of the rumors and leaks that happened in the past. There was this trailer where you could kind of see a female Majin form in the background. It was very hard to notice but people did notice it and it turns out that’s Android 21.
I like the original design of Android 21 a lot. The Majin form I don’t like it as much, so the design wise. I’m a little bummed out that I don’t get to play as Android 21 with a lab coat and all that. But on the other hand, Majin Android 21 also has a unique silhouette, and she’s got a tail which I think she’s the second character with the tail in this game.
And I’ve put freezes tail to very good use in the beta so far. So definitely excited to see what she does with it for those who haven’t followed this game as closely as maybe some others have. Android 21 is an original character created for Dragon Ball FighterZ with the help of Akira Toriyama, Akira Toriyama himself designed the character.
I think it’s only fair to assume that he also designed this one and he feels like he’s he’s just pulling all the stops. He’s just kind of merging it’s like a best-of collection of his previous work
We look at this character’s hair and it’s like okay. We’ve had Super Saiyan rose, we’ve had Super Saiyan blue super since been yellow for the longest time let’s give her another color white.
So Super Saiyan white also she’s imagined and she’s an Android 21 and she’s got a freeze a tail. Super Saiyan team freeze Majin Android 21, that’s the full name that just didn’t include it.
Like the other book, Saiyan seems to have some cravings and the cravings on this one seemed to be cupcakes. We can see some victory screens and she’s like: “oh cupcakes”, so cute.
She’s got the solar flare it seems like she can also turn their enemies into chocolates or maybe muffins or cupcakes or whatever she wants to eat. She’s got some huge black and red ki blasts almost like Goku Rose.
And I said it before I think Goku Rose is one of the most visually impressive characters in the current roster. So I’m kind of happy that they’re using this color scheme for someone else because those colors contrast very well with this type of art style.
She’s got a deathball type of attack but we’ll have to wait to see actual gameplay to see how these abilities behave in game.
Now given this crazy mix this crazy best-off all the characters that I’ve designed so far Akira Toriyama. I’m very curious to see the story mode justification for how this character can be.
As she really an Android how does she turn Majin as an Android? That’s something that I don’t want to speculate on because the games coming out next week and we’ll learn very very soon but it did leave me very curious.
Hopefully, they nail it because if they don’t they just get this character this feels super flush. And it feels like it doesn’t fit within the Dragon Ball Canon. Which this game doesn’t have to be canon but it would make it more believable if it fit into that universe, you know.
So yeah hopefully they come up with a good reason for why an Android 21 is now a Majin Android 21 and why does the Majin Android 21 have a tail. That’s also something I would personally like to know. But if you don’t want to answer that during the game I guess I’ll let it slide.
The big question is Android 21 watching now as always huge shout out to shun and Gamescom they do some amazing work with these scans every single month. They bring us the news this early so just go check out their website, if you want some more news on anime games. Really Really awesome folks.
And if you want to get to know Android 21 a little bit better, you’re gonna have to play through story mode which this time around and Dragon Ball FighterZ it will be a replayable story mode.
Check it out right here to know what we’re talking about or if you’re in the mood for something else.
So what you’re going to go to is the PlayStation Store or the Xbox one store. Not sure how the Xbox one store functions and everything but just go to the store. Go to search and what you want to type in is actually just straight up FIGHTERZ. It’s pretty simple.
