DB FighterZ 02 color meanings for each character

Postby SaiyanZ » Fri Feb 02, 2018 5:30 am

I did some digging around and was able to compile a list of these, though I'm still trying to figure out what Hit's is. For those who don't know though, each character in the game has 12 different colors, with the 2nd/02 color being a reference of some kind (the rest follow in this pattern: 03 is red, 04 is blue, 05 is green, 06 is yellow, 07 is purple, 08 is pink, 09 is orange, 10 is brown, 11 is white, 12 is black). The King of Fighters series usually does this; for instance, the character Andy Bogard's Color 09 (iirc) in KoF XIII is a Goku color scheme. ArcSys, the developers behind this game, usually do this too in their games; Sol Badguy, the mascot of Guilty Gear has a Ky Kiske (his rival) alternate color in Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2 for example. So naturally, I thought it'd be nice to post it here while trying to figure out what Hit's is. I'm not 100% sure on some of them and if you think not, don't be afraid to speak up lol

Goku, either (Purple gi colors he had as a kid in the anime)
Vegeta, either (orange-blue-green color for his first appearance from the anime)
Gohan, either (Piccolo gi, I think for SSj2 also)
Krillin (Battle of Gods outfit???)
Yamcha (DBZ baseball)
Tien (Original/Crane School)
Piccolo (King Piccolo)
Nappa (Raditz)
Ginyu (Jheese & Sauza???, said to be of same race in Tenkaichi 3; was this tidbit ever said anywhere else?)
Freeza (Chilled)
Future Trunks (Casual wear from Super)
Android 18 (Battle of Gods outfit)
Android 16 (Android 8???)
Cell (Cell Jr.)
Gotenks (Xeno ver. from Heroes)
Fat Buu ("Evil" Buu)
Kid Buu (GT Uub)
Beerus (Whis)
Hit (???? the one I'm tryna figure out, will edit/update once I can)
Goku Black (Future Trunks's color from Super)
Android 21 (Dr. Gero)
Tim Duncan is dope and forever.

With Krillin's 02 outfit, it's meant to reference his outfit from Battle of Gods:

Image

For Nappa, his armour looks like in the debut episode like Vegeta; his armour normally has yellow segments with dark blue as a base. It is worth noting too that in Dragon Ball Full Colour, his armour is brown and black like in the debut episode:

Image

I agree that Android 16's armour references Android 8:

Image

Adult Gohan's 02 is meant to match Teen Gohan's default outfit worn during the Cell Games (the white undershirt is in reference to the Piccolo cape). Teen Gohan's 02 matches his older Saiyan and Namek-era outfit:

Image


...I have no idea what Captain Ginyu's references.

I would never noticed this if I hadn't seen this thread! Gotenks does seem to be wearing Xeno Gotenks' clothes. I'm glad there's a possible reference to Heroes in this game. :clap:

I also really liked Future Trunks second color, nice nod to Dragon Ball Super.
Rest in peace, Dragon Ball!

Ginyu's might be his frog colors rather than Jheese/Sauza combo

How in the name of Kami is Hits Color 02 a reference to Chronoa from Xenoverse? Even more confusing the Twitter post just has it as a reference to itself :crazy:

Gotenks also has another colour where his top matches Gogeta's with the orange and black.

So what are we predicting for Bardock and Broly's alt colours?

Broly is easy, I'd bet money it's either Paragus or Kale.

Bardock has a few options. One of his crew members, Gine, Raditz, King Vegeta or possibly Time Breaker? That's a different armour colour, and I know they love marketing that.

I think Bardock will get either Time Breaker or maybe a reference to Goku. Like an orange and blue color

Broly I could see a reference to Paragus

For Broly I can see a reference to Dark Broly from Dragon Ball Heroes.

Bardock should have this one in reference to Toma (including the white headband):

Image

And this one for Turles (but no white headband):

Image

Also, I would really like an outfit that pays homage to Goku Black and/or Goku Junior.
Rest in peace, Dragon Ball!

The thing is that characters can have more than one reference.
Colors beyond number 2 have to follow a pattern of predetermined colors, but whenever possible, the developers use that mandatory color to make another reference while they're at it.

For example, if you watch Nappa's colors, his number 4 had to be blue, so they gave him Toma's armor colors. His number 6 had to be yellow, so they gave him Vegeta's armor colors.
We also have Vegeta wearing orange with blue accessories, giving him Goku's colors.

So you can expect more than one reference for Broly and Bardack (like Paragus for Broly's green outfit (N°5) and Kale for his red outfit (n°3), or Toma for Bardack's blue outfit (N°5), etc...).

And there's more than one reference to find for many characters beyond color N°2. :wink:
