This level 3 Captain Ginyu Super gone awry may be the closest thing to the 'Dance of Joy' we'll see in Dragon Ball FighterZ

There's a scene during the Dragon Ball Z Frieza saga wherein the very theatric Captain Ginyu (one of the Universe 7's most fearsome warriors) performs the passionate-yet-cringey "Dance of Joy" to honor his evil superior. Said scene is directly referenced in the Dragon Ball FighterZ story mode, though Frieza puts the kibosh on the recital before it can begin.

The leader of the Ginyu Force was granted a brand new level three Super attack in Season 3 of DBFZ, and a comical sequence posted by a player by the name of Opebin shows off the closest thing to the Dance of Joy we've seen in FighterZ.

As far as we can tell, the start of Ginyu's round-opening Super hits not only Gohan but also his teammate Bardock as he flies in for an assist. This damages both victims a bit but does not trigger the follow up animation that sees the rest of the attack (and its damage) manifest.

Ginyu performs his part of what's usually a dance routine carried out by all five members of the Force, but without his friends, camera angles, and flying color animations to buttress the drama, things just look goofy.

We do notice that Gohan actually does have to block a few attacks after he rises from the initial knockdown, but still gets off incredibly easy with a very lucky turn of events.

You can view the full sequence by clicking the thumbnail below. Please note that the sound in the clip is distorted (which arguably makes it even better as it adds to the farcical nature of the exchange) so maybe don't have your headphones up at full volume.
