SonicFox shows off a Dragon Ball FighterZ touch of death combo on an opponent's entire team

Double happy birthday? Merry Christmas?

Dragon Ball FighterZ is like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in a number of ways. Both fighters are 3v3 games that allow players to call out assists to aid their point character.

There is a certain degree of risk that comes with utilizing the assist mechanic. The opponent can strike both your point character and assist at the same time.

When you are able to catch two characters in a combo like this, it is referred to as a "happy birthday." These tend to be pretty hype highlights at tournaments.

If you are able to trap multiple fighters in a single combo, it's generally a good idea to spend as many resources as possible to try to knock out two or more characters. It's worth noting that Dragon Ball FighterZ is the type of game that allows you to call both your assists nearly at the same time.

SonicFox has posted a sequence in the training room that showcases what can happen if you can land that hit that strikes all three enemy combatants. It is very possible to score a touch of death that decimates the entire team.

Is this something that could happen at a tournament someday? We'll have to wait and see...
