Dragon Ball FighterZ anime and manga references found for Goku and Frieza so far

The Dragon Ball series is certainly among one of the most recognizable among the anime and manga culture. This includes Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Super, and the now non-canon Dragon Ball GT.

It is a series that is obviously far from dead as the Dragon Ball Super series is one that only started somewhat recently and is still ongoing today. We can be sure that there are plenty of fans for them to continue working on it.

With the recently announced Dragon Ball FighterZ, we wouldn't be too surprised to find references to the show and manga. In fact, fan have already spotted a plethora of references in, what is likely, a small portion of what the completed product will look like.

A user that goes by the name of IKevinX has uploaded a compilation of references in the show, movies, and manga that involve Goku and Frieza. It's likely we'll see references pointed out for the other four announced characters, Vegeta, Gohan, Cell, and (fat) Majin Buu.

Once you see the videos, you'll realize just how much attention to detail that ArcSys is putting into character animations, stances, attacks, visuals, interactions, etc. It really does look like they went out of their way to reference as many sources of material as possible.
