Four characters from Dragon Ball Super who could be cool to have in Dragon Ball FighterZ

With Season 3's remaining fighter's on the horizon, now seemed like an ample time to point out some great characters still not in the game

Dragon Ball FighterZ had its third season unveiled about a month ago and we've already gotten Kefla released for the game alongside a slew of changes to characters and the game's systems.

With Ultra Instinct Goku on the horizon, we also have several currently unrevealed characters coming up and given the expansive universe of Dragon Ball that's been building since its start over 30 years ago, it felt like a good time to take another look at some great characters who haven't joined the game just yet. This fourth part of the multi-part article series will be focusing on characters from Dragon Ball Super, the newest part of the Dragon Ball mythos which introduces many new characters and story arcs and follows up on the events from the original Dragon Ball and the Z series.

Frost

Frost is a member of Frieza's race (which currently doesn't have an official name beyond that) from one of the other universes participating in the Tournament of Power, more specifically Universe 6.

At first he comes off as much more of a nice guy though it doesn't take long before his villainous side shines through and he shows himself as the underhanded trickster he really is.

Constantly trying to put others off-guard so that he can stab them in the back, Frost is a ruthless opportunist who forges a shaky alliance with Frieza likely with the intent of betraying him, much like he does everyone else.

Unfortunately for him, Frieza was wise to his underhanded methods all along and takes the opportunity to betray him first, leading to Frost being eliminated by the same methods and even by someone with basically the same appearance as himself.

He has energy attacks similar to what you'd expect from a Frieza lookalike, but also equips himself with hidden poison needles, another trick of his to catch his opponents off-guard. He implants these needles in several different parts of his body and they're coated with different poisons — one is shown to make opponents sluggish and unable to move, while another is shown to outright kill his victims.

Frost could make for an interesting character in Dragon Ball FighterZ if they played up his poison and underhanded trickster gimmicks, making him a tricky fighter who exploits his opponent's openings in unexpected ways. Given that current relevance is always a big factor in DLC additions, it feels like we might be in for a good deal of more Dragon Ball Super characters and he'd be an interesting one to see.

Ribrianne

Since the Tournament of Power is the most recent and also most notable arc from Dragon Ball Super (not to mention that most relevant characters from prior parts are already in the game with Beerus, Hit, Goku Black and Fused Zamasu), you'll have to prepared for the fact that most of what we're looking at will be from that part.

So here comes another fighter from a different universe, this time from Universe 2 in the oddly shaped Ribrianne.

While she generally presents herself as a fairly small, green-haired woman with a slender form (and goes by the name Brianne), she transforms when she goes into proper battle and becomes the almost completely round and much more powerful Ribrianne who you can see in the small banner above.

Although she is technically an antagonist due to being part of a different faction than our Z Warriors, it's hard to call her a villain or a bad guy when all she cares about is love and happiness and wishes to spread love more across the multiverse to see people happy.

Due to this obsession with love, she's also capable of using love from her allies to power herself up and is even able to channel it into a new, even bigger Giant Form which could easily be her main super attack in a game like Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Unique mechanics she could have could be centered around using love absorption from her allies similar to how Base Goku can gather up energy for his Spirit Bomb special move, and let her power up her specials or even other attacks by using these charges.

While she may not have been the most impactful player in the Tournament of Power, she's certainly a memorable one... And one thing's for sure, we definitely don't have any other character like her in the game's cast right now. Not even close.

It also goes without saying that people are always clamoring for more female characters to join the roster in Dragon Ball FighterZ as well and although Ribrianne may not be quite what most of the people asking for more women had in mind, she's definitely a female character and she's one quite unlike anything you've seen in any fighting game before, to boot.

Toppo

Hailing from the same universe as Jiren, who's already part of the playable roster, Toppo is one of the most powerful warriors in Universe 11 and is a candidate to become the next God of Destruction of it as well.

He's the leader of a team called the Pride Troopers who wear the same type of uniforms (you'll notice Jiren is also a member) and work together to keep their Universe safe from evildoers and enforce justice. Although Jiren is the most powerful member of the group, he's also very much a loner and tends to do things his own way which is likely why Top is their leader and actually works with the team to solve problems.

Given his rigid sense of justice and the team at his disposal, you could easily have Toppo function somewhat like Captain Ginyu in being able to call his allies in for various support attacks, essentially making the whole Pride Troopers (sans Jiren) one character.

Of course, since he's a candidate to become the next God of Destruction of his universe, Toppo also has a form where he embraces this power and becomes much less caring about his lofty ideals of justice and fairness and instead focuses on doing what it takes to save his home universe whatever the cost may be.

Although you could have his God of Destruction form simply be part of a super, it might be even more interesting to have Toppo able to shift to this form via a Super and stay in it for the rest of the game, similar to how Necalli from Street Fighter 5 can enter an empowered state that never ends until he is defeated.

Given the sheer power of a God of Destruction (though you wouldn't know it from looking at Beerus' tier placing in Dragon Ball FighterZ), you could even have some sort of gimmick where he can only reach this power by using full bars and discarding the rest of his team, making it a sort of ultimate form you build your team around reaching, somewhat akin to Dark Phoenix in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

There are many different ways you could go with Toppo if he were to be included in Dragon Ball FighterZ, and this wealth of potential for different interesting gameplay ideas makes him a prime candidate not just to be the next God of Destruction, but also to be the next DLC character for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Moro

I know I've brought this character up in past articles as well, but it's impossible not to with how much sense he makes. Honestly, he seems like a fairly obvious character to add since he's the latest big villain in the series and is new enough where we haven't seen him in a game yet.

The only potential drawback to him is that we haven't seen him in animated form since he's only debuted in the Dragon Ball Super manga which is still ongoing while the anime has ended (temporarily or not, we're not sure).

We know there are more movies in the work after Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but whether they'll be adapting the Moro and Galactical Patrol arc from the manga or do something completely different is currently unclear.

Nevertheless, as it stands right now Moro makes the most sense of any character because he'd be probably the freshest character you could add — and he fits very well as another foe to Ultra Instinct Goku after Jiren as well.

In the series, the ominous Planet-Eater Moro is an ancient wizard from millions of years ago who was sealed by the Grand Supreme Kai and since nobody has been powerful enough to actually kill him, he's been locked away for millions of years biding his time waiting to escape.

After getting out from his imprisonment he gathered the Dragon Balls on New Namek to restore his youth and bring his power to its old heights (so basically he's a new-age King Piccolo). His power is obviously on a whole different level from the original Dragon Ball baddie he takes his schtick from, though.

As of yet, the story arc featuring him hasn't been brought to its conclusion, but he's also shown plenty of techniques to make a fighting game moveset from, perhaps most notably his magic which lets him absorb energy from all around him similar to Goku's Spirit Bomb, though in Moro's case he does it forcefully rather than asking for help. After gathering it, he consumes it and makes the energy part of himself — hence his title, Planet-Eater Moro.

Given how many Dragon Ball characters we've played as throughout the years in various fighting games, it'd be nice now that we have brand new canon content coming out from the series to have a game keeping up with the times and pushing in characters that are too new for us to have played them countless times before. Moro fits the bill perfectly, and is probably the very best choice for DLC (well, after Master Roshi) in my mind.

I hope you enjoyed this final writeup in the series, focusing on characters from the Dragon Ball Super portion of the series which would be nice additions to the series. Make sure to check out the previous iterations which cover characters from the original Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z characters and then finally interesting choices from the non-canon areas of the Dragon Ball Z Movies and Dragon Ball GT.
