Hello and welcome to another character of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Today here on dbfgame.net were bringing you a character profile for SonGoku. The main character from Dragon Ball is currently one of the strongest characters in the entire Dragon Ball FighterZ roster.
Having defeated the likes of Frieza and Majin Buu Arc System games wanted to make Goku into a very accessible character for those casual fans. That just want to try him out, that means Goku is a very easy character to pick up if you’re a beginner. That’s because he is very versatile on the ground and in the air. There’s a law you can do with him, and it’s actually very easy to pull off.
Its first special attack is the iconic Kamehameha.
Quarter-circle forward plus the special button executes a full-screen blast. Which direction you can change if you’re on the ground. You can point it forward or up. And if you’re in the air you can also aim it forward or straight down.
His second special attack is an overhead strike called the dragon flash fist.
Quarter-circle forward plus an attack button has Goku moving forward and punching the opponent over the head. His range varies depending on whether you hit the light or the medium attack buttons. But the damage you deal is exactly the same.
The X version of this move can be done with the heavy attack button. And has Goku teleporting to the opponent before punching him. By spending one bar of meter, you can cover the entire screen making sure your enemy is never out of range.
His last special move is the rapid kick rush.
This time Goku unleashes a series of rapid kicks towards the air. Quarter-circle backwards plus an attack button will unleash this move. And once again, depending on whether you hit the lights or medium attack buttons.
The range will vary as well as the number of hits. In this special move, the X version of this move spends 1 bar meter and unleashes six kicks dealing some decent damage on its own.
Given the nature of this attack, you can use this as an anti-air move to punish a reckless super. As well as a natural way to prolong combos before unleashing a super move. In fact this may be the easiest way to prolong a combo in the air with any character.
Moving on to the character super moves Goku has 3 supers at his disposal – level 1 supers and 1 level 3 super the first one is the super kamehameha.
Quarter-circle forward right bumper shoots of fullscreen key blasts. Just like Goku special attack, you can do this on the ground and on the air. And even direct the beam upwards or downwards if you so desire.
His second level one super is the instant transmission kamehameha. It deals exactly the same damage as the super kamehameha. But you teleport behind your opponent’s potentially catching him off-guard.
You can execute this move by inputting quarter-circle forwards and the right trigger. Because of the initial animation supers can be pretty easy to block usually. Unless you’re directly countering your opponent or linking them in a combo.
However with Goku the super attack could come from the front with a super kamehameha. Or the back with the instant transmission kamehameha. And you can really throw your opponent for a loop here. However that will probably not work with more advanced players. Because even though the windup animation looks similar. It’s not exactly the same.
An easy way to spot the difference is by looking at Goku face or shoulder. In the super kamehameha the camera doesn’t rotate too much. So it centers on Goku shoulder and you can see his full face. In the Instant Transmission Kamehameha, how the camera rotates a bit more so the shoulder is no longer the focus. And you can only see his profile from this angle.
The same thing applies to the air version of these supers. If you can see a full face and the focus is on the shoulder then it’s the regular super if not then it’s the Instant Transmission. So if you don’t have the reflexes to change the direction when you see the teleports. Use this to know where the attack is coming from way ahead of time.
Finally his strongest attack is level 3 super is the meteor smash.
Quarter circle backwards plus the right bumper or trigger. And Goku goes super saiyan 3 teleports behind the enemy knocks him into the air and finishes him off with a powerful kamehameha.
Just like the instant transmission kamehameha, Goku teleports behind their opponents meaning the opponent must block in the opposite direction if he wants to block the attack. However in this case for you to deal any damage the opponent’s must be on the ground. If they are jumping the meteor smash won’t connect. And you’ll have successfully wasted three bars of meters.
Next let’s look at the auto combos Goku has two auto combos. This is what happens when you match the light attack.
And this is what happens when you match the medium attack. Bear in mind that because the second combo ends in a super. You’ll spend 1 bar of meter if you do it.
And now that we know his moves here are some tips on how to use them.
Or even punish him without spending any bars of meter whenever he uses a super kamehameha from a distance. Also even if your opponent is someone who is very good defensively. They’ll probably have a hard time going up against a good Goku player. Every character can easily go from a standing up combo to a low attack. And players are usually on the lookout for that but Goku can not only do that. But also easily link any combo, into a dragon flash fist. So if your opponent is blocking low, you can punish him severely by using this attack.
As the dragon flash fist can be followed up by an instant transmission kamehameha. Or even a meteor strike if you have the parts to do it.
His versatility is arguably one of his biggest strengths. Goku can unleash super attacks in the air coming from multiple directions. So you can finish a combo with big damage in almost any situation. Plus using his first Auto combo followed by a rapid kick rush when you’re in the air. And finishing things up with a super kamehameha is one of the easiest combos to perform in the game. And it deals very good damage.
