Update: The polling is closed and you can take a look at who made the top spots in popularity after the jump — spoilers, it's not Jaco.

Today marks the third anniversary of the day that Dragon Ball Super aired its first episode in Japan giving us over 100 more episodes of adventures in the Dragon Ball universe(s) along with new characters and villains to add to the franchises already enormous list of fighters.

Toei Animation put out a Tweet in celebration of the anniversary showing many of the new series' most memorable moments from everyone giving Goku their power to become a Super Saiyan God to squaring up against Jiren in the Tournament of Power.

With all of these new characters, you'd expect a brand new fighter like Dragon Ball FighterZ to take advantage of the new material and add many of those new characters to the title's roster though that's not exactly the case here.

In the base roster, we can say Hit and Goku Black are the only brand new characters pulled from Super in DBFZ though there is also Beerus, Golden Frieza, Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta and Goku if we want to count characters that technically appeared elsewhere first in the movies or transformations.

Fused Zamasu and Vegito Blue made it in through DLC so far, but characters like Jiren, Caulifla, Kefla, Toppo, Ultra Instinct Goku and Whis are still among those that are still sitting on the outside looking in though they have a good shot of getting in if/ when Dragon Ball FighterZ receives another season pass in the future.

Below you can check out Toei's celebratory Tweet, and after the jump you'll see my picks for Future Dragon Ball FighterZ characters hailing from Super plus be sure to vote for which characters you'd like to play as from the latest Dragon Ball series in our poll though this list is exclusively for Dragon Ball Super characters...and Hercule.

Jiren is a no-brainer addition to the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster as the final threat Goku and team take on in Dragon Ball Super's finale to the Tournament of Power.

His immense strength proves enough to stop characters like Goku and Hit's signature attacks on multiple occasions and his more defensive nature could prove an interesting move set using things like armor to power through his opponents.

Caulifla / Kefla

Caulifla or Kefla would make good additions to Dragon Ball FighterZ as the first female Super Saiyan(s) to canonically appear in the series and would help diversify the roster a little more beyond its current two female character selections.

The female Saiyans became instantly popular among fans, and Caulifla's style and fighting ability would be welcome to the game though Kale appears to be too much like Broly in her Super Saiyan form to likely be chosen for the game's roster.

Their potara fusion, Kefla, would also be a fun choice based on her looks of a regular Super Saiyan combined with a Legendary Super Saiyan and multi-colored energy attacks.


Whis is the martial arts teacher of the god of destruction, Beerus, and is considerably stronger than his student though we have yet to see him seriously fight. He is said to be the fastest in the universe and can effortlessly dodge Goku and Vegeta's combined attacks.

He is also an angel which is a race yet to be represented in FighterZ, and due to his over-powered nature, could work in a similar vein to Elizabeth from Persona 4 Arena who always appears to be holding back and just lays on the ground smiling if she is bested.

Using techniques like Ultra Instinct, teleporting and portals, Whis could prove to be a very unique fighter in DBFZ perhaps taking notes from Hit, Beerus and Fused Zamasu.
