Lab Coat Android 21 DLC V Jump scan for Dragon Ball FighterZ reveals start of new super

Very little information was revealed about Lab Coat Android 21 when she was first unveiled to be a DLC character coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ. Rather than just being an alternate costume for Android 21, there's plenty of evidence to suggest that Lab Coat Android 21 is her own unique character, but we couldn't say for sure that this was actually the case.

However, a scan of a V Jump magazine featuring information and screenshots of Lab Coat Android 21 has revealed quite a bit. Thanks to the translations of our own Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor, we know what's being said here.

"Dragon Ball FighterZ's shocking new character!"

"The mysterious scientist! Lab Coat Android 21 will be joining the game as DLC."

"Good news to all fighters in the entire country! Dragon Ball FighterZ will be getting its first new character since March 2021! She who holds the key to the entire story, Android 21 will be joining in her lab coat form!"

Indeed, the last character that was released for Dragon Ball FighterZ was SS4 Gogeta back in March 2021. As a result of the delay between then and the announcement for Lab Coat Android 21, many believed that Dragon Ball FighterZ had wrapped up its development.

"Dragon Ball FighterZ's original character!"

"The female scientist who made clones identical to Goku and the others. Combining a great intellect capable of fantastical scientific accomplishments and a high power level for battle."

Android 21 obviously played an important role in the story mode campaigns for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Before battling Android 21 in each campaign, the player must battle through tons of clones that were apparently created by Android 21.

Could this be a hint that these clones are somehow part of Lab Coat Android 21's moveset?

"A look at one of Android 21's Supers!"

"Android 21 is gathering energy! Her transformed version fought by absorbing energy from her enemies, but how exactly will the lab coat version be doing battle... ?!"

In the screenshot, Lab Coat Android 21 can be seen using what appears to be a variation of her Total Detonation Ball. As Android 21 (with the Majin appearance), Total Detonation Ball was a regular special that became more powerful as Android 21 used Connoisseur Cut on more opposing characters.

As of right now, it's unknown if Lab Coat Android 21 will have access to Android 21's unique ability to copy opposing fighters with her Connoisseur Cut. Based on how Lab Coat Android 21 uses the Total Detonation Ball as a super rather than a regular special, things are definitely being changed up for this variation of Dragon Ball FighterZ's original character.
