Predict the roster for the new DB fighting game "Dragon Ball FighterZ"

Post by DBZAOTA482 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 3:43 pm

Personally I think there'd be at least 20 characters with a maximum of 30 excluding DLC.

Here's what I think the roster would most likely be like:

Goku (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3)
Goku (Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue)
Pre-Teen Gohan (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2)
Gohan (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Elder Kai Unlocked Abilities)
Vegeta (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2)
Vegeta (Super Saiyan Blue)
Piccolo
Krillin
Yamcha
Tien
Trunks (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Trunks)
Gotenks (Base, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 3)
Raditz
Nappa
Zarbon (Base, Monster Form)
Dodoria
Recoome
Captain Ginyu
Frieza (First Form, True Form, 100% Full Power)
#17
#18
Dr. Gero (#20)
Cell (Imperfect, Semi-Perfect, Perfect, Super Perfect)
Dabura
Majin Buu
Super Buu (Normal, Absorption ~Gotenks~, Absorption ~Gohan~)
Kid Boo
Beerus
Whis
Golden Frieza

DLC
Goku (Super Saiyan 4)
Majin Vegeta
Vegito (Base, Super Vegito)
Master Roshi (Base, Max Power)
Hit
Cooler
Broly (Legendary Super Saiyan)
Goku Black (Base, Super Saiyan Rose)
Zamasu
Jiren

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

* Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta

3. Teen Gohan
* Teen Gohan Super Saiyan 2

7. Krillin

8. Final Form Freeza
* Golden Freeza
* Frost

9. 17

In afraid that, if its going to be like Extreme Butoden , tranaformations will be separated slots. In that case it would be a pretty «small» roster in the sense of most of the fighters being forms.

[spoiler]1.Goku
2. Goku SS
3. Goku SSB
4. Vegeta
5. Vegeta SS
6. Vegeta SSB
7. Teen Gohan SS2
8. Ultimate Gohan
9. Krillin
10. Piccolo
11. Frieza
12. Golden Frieza
13. Perfect Cell
14. Fat Boo
15. Broly LSS
16. Bardock
17. Beerus
18. Hit
19. Android 18
20. Goku Black SSR
21. Future Zamasu
22. Future Trunks SS2
23. Maybe, similar to SSB Goku in Extreme Butoden, we get an overpowered extra fighter via a code from the US arc. Either Goku's new form or Jiren.[/spoiler]

I would not be surprised if instead of Zamasu they add Super Boo or Kid Boo. Future Zamasu was an extremely lame villain in the anime version (unlike in the manga where he had some badass moments) and I doubt it has a solid fanbase unlike Black. Oh, and this considering they don't add A17 or Ginyu as well. Personally I would remove and change a lot of them, but this the most likely roster IMO.

If for some reason transformations don't take another slot, I could actually be somehow happy with a roster:

[spoiler]1. Goku (SS,SSG,SSB)
2. Vegeta (SS,SSB)
3. Teen Gohan (SS2)
4. Ultimate Gohan
5. Piccolo
6. Krillin
7. A18
8. A17
9. Future Trunks (SS2, maybe Ikari)
10. Bardock (SS)
11. LSS Broly
12. SS Gotenks (SS3)
13. Frieza (Golden)
14. Perfect Cell (MAYBE his Imperfect form)
15. Fat Boo
16. Kid Boo (MAYBE Super Boo)
17. Hit
18. Goku Black (SSR)
19. Roshi
20. Zamasu
21. Beerus
22. Ten Shin Han
23. Jiren?

With DLCs maybe we can get SS Cabba, Frost, Champa or even other Hakaishin (Probably Sidra). Vegetto and Merged Zamasu would be interesting but I doubt it will happen.

I would add some cool forms from the manga like SSG Vegeta or SS Black, but it won't happen, so...[/spoiler]

Again, any of the options is far from my ideal roster, but my prediction is one similar to the first one. It would be cool if we get different outfits like Xenoverse, or at least give Goku, Vegeta their ROF outfits for all the forms...

There's no way they don't toss in SS4 for good measure.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

I was already wrong by not including SSJ3 Goku in my list, lol.
EDIT: Actually it looks like SSJ3 Goku was a finisher move for SSJ Goku.

Do the Guilty Gear / Blazblue games have any small character in their roster? How would Kid Goku even work.

I think Teen Gohan is as young as a character in the roster will get. Can't see Goten being in this for example due to the size difference.

They could have Kid Goku based on his proportions in the Demon King Piccolo arc, he was slightly taller there.

I'm sorry to shatter people's hopes, but you're not getting a massive roster in this game. This is a legit fighting game starting from scratch, we'll be lucky if we get 25-30 characters.

I'll predict that some characters will have transformations as "awakenings" which trigger at low health. Based on how people noticed Golden Freeza is most likely playable in some form, yet we see Freeza transform into him. That being said here's my list, brackets are awakening transformations.
-Goku SSj (SSj3)
-Vegeta SSj (Super Vegeta)
-Gohan SSj2
-Freeza (Golden Freeza)
-Perfect Cell
-Majin Boo
-Goku SSjBlue (SSjBlue Kaio-Ken)
-Vegeta SSjBlue
-Trunks SSj (SSj Ikari)
-Kuririn
-Piccolo
-Ultimate Gohan
-Gotenks SSj (SSj3)
-Kid Boo
-Android 18
-Beerus
-Hit
-Goku Black Rose'
-Broly LSSj
-Gogeta/Vegetto

That's my main 20. Most are a given. I doubt we'll see base form from any of the Saiyans. It's just not a good idea from a developer stand point to bother creating them, but they are always possible. 18 is a guarantee for female representation, Vide and/or Chi-Chi is a possibility, if they have Super, the U6 Saiyan Trio will easily make it into the game simply for representation and marketing factor. ArcSys usually like their varying character styles so think of what characters could add gameplay variety and they will probably be in the game, like Trunks with his sword or Piccolo with his arms.

I don't mean to pick on some of yall predictions, but don't yall think that over 30 characters are a bit too much for a first installment 2D fighter, especially one from an Arc System game?

Anyways, here's mine, and since I doubt there will be transformations at the moment (and I think SSJ3 and Golden Frieza are super attacks)...
[spoiler]1. Goku
2. Vegeta
3. Teen Gohan
4. Gohan (SSJ or Ultimate)
5. Tien
6. Yamcha
7. Krillin
8. Piccolo
9. Android 18
10. Future Trunks
11. Gotenks
12. Vegito
13. Frieza
14. Cell
15. Fat Buu
16. Super Buu (I predict he will be the final boss)
17. Beerus (I want him to be an "alternate" final boss)
18. Broly (Secret boss 1)
19. Goku Black (Secret boss 2)
20. Hit (Secret boss 3)
21. Omega Shenron (the true/ultimate final boss, not someone who I'd expect but it'd be nice)
22. Guest character from another Arc game (either Sol Badguy or Ragna the Bloodedge)

DLC:
1. King Piccolo
2. Kid Goku
3. Mercenary Tao
4. Cooler
5. Videl
6. SSJ4 Goku[/spoiler]

I wonder if Golden Freeza is really a different character from True Form Freeza. That's a waste of a character slot, how much different can you make them? If confirmed that's a slippery slot, which makes me fearful of character diversity. I hope it's a transformation or a different skin.
Very few characters deserve more than one version and Freeza isn't one of them in my opinion.

Now my predictions, a bit different than earlier in the day in another thread. I'm going to assume SSJ3 Goku and Golden Freeza aren't characters.

My reasoning is that the focus of the game is the Z section of Dragon Ball. The trailer has the three Heroes from Z and the three/four Villains, that tells me something(weird they had Mr.Boo instead of Pure Boo). I don't see movies and GT material getting much focus, if at all. Super maybe, for obvious reasons.

[spoiler]Confirmed Characters
  • Goku
  • Vegeta
  • Teen Gohan
  • Freeza
  • Cell
  • Mr.Boo.
That's 6.

99.9% Certain Characters
  • Piccolo
  • Future Trunks
  • Kuririn
  • Android #17 or/and Android #18
  • Pure Boo
  • Kid Gohan or/ and Adult Gohan
  • Beerus
  • Nappa
  • Ginyu
  • Super Boo
  • Raditz
  • Dr.Gero or Android #19
  • Mr.Satan(Joke value is too important)
That's 13 or 16.

95% Certain Characters
  • Tenshinhan
  • Yamcha
  • Goten or/and Trunks or/and Gotenks
  • Dabra
  • Another member of the Ginyu Force
That's 5 or 7.

Extra Content Characters
  • Hit
  • Goku Black and/or Zamasu and/or Absolute Zamasu
  • Current Arc Character(s) (?)
  • Movie Character(s)
That's 3 or a billion.[/spoiler]

I don't want to get overhyped, but with SS3 Goku and Golden Frieza being tranaformations we will probably get a way more diverse roster. I still think it would be around 20 fighters trough.
