Would Raditz be a good addition to Season 3 of Dragon Ball FighterZ? Here's how Goku's brother might play if inserted into the game

We'll admit this video is a tad old, but since we're still waiting on Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC character reveals and Goku's brother Raditz still remains one of the most charismatic Dragon Ball Z characters not on DBFZ's roster, we figure it's still more than relevant.

Raditz is the main focus of one of the earlier entries in Globku's DBFZ Season 3 character and move set prediction videos, and while the evil Saiyan hasn't had as much screen time as many others, Globku does have some interesting ideas based on the little we have seen.

Dragon Ball is taking a pretty big financial dip for Bandai Namco but still remains the company's biggest breadwinner

We in the fighting game community know Bandai Namco for games like Tekken and Dragon Ball FighterZ, but the company deals in plenty more than just fighting games. Bandai produces a lot in the way of anime action figures and collectibles and while it's surely profitable to be working with the likes of Pokémon, Mobile Suit Gundam, KAMEN RIDER, and ONE PIECE, it should come as little surprise that the mega successful Dragon Ball is by far the company's biggest cash cow in this avenue.

That said, the recently released financial report reveals that Dragon Ball is taking a significant monetary dip this fiscal year.

Despite Tapion never fighting in Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon, Globku managed to theorize a moveset for him in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Globku recently released a video that theorizes moveset ideas for Tapion in Dragon Ball FighterZ. This proved to be quite the challenge as Tapion was never actually seen fighting in the Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon movie.

Still, Globku managed to come up with a number of ideas that revolve around Tapion's sword and his enchanted ocarina. Inevitably, some ideas for Tapion's move list had to come directly from Xenoverse.

If Master Roshi became a character in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3, these are some techniques that he should have access to

With Ultra Instinct Goku and Kefla already available, there are still three DLC fighters remaining for Dragon Ball FighterZ's Season 3 pass. Based on his popularity during our Dragon Ball FighterZ character wish list poll, we think that Master Roshi might be the perfect candidate.

While Master Roshi isn't quite as powerful as someone like Ultra Instinct Goku, Kefla, Beerus, or Jiren in terms of the canon material, the Turtle Hermit's importance can't be overstated considering that he was the martial arts teacher for the series' main character.

When Dragon Ball FighterZ first launched its Season 3 update with additional Z Assist functions, many players initially wrote off C Assists due to their long recovery times though they have been growing in popularity more recently.

Base Vegeta lands five command throws in a row in the ultimate 'playing with your food' Dragon Ball FighterZ clip

There's a lot of dirt that can be done in competitive fighting games, and some of the filthiest plays we see come from team-based titles such as the Marvel vs. Capcom series and Dragon Ball FighterZ. In games where you have multiple characters on a squad and the ability to call assists, players are able to set their opponents up for some truly nasty things, but sometimes the threat of that alone is enough to give someone an upper-hand and the ability to play with their food.

A clip from AxiomSirrah on Twitter shows their Base Form Vegeta (backed by his two teammates) taking on a solo Vegito online. With the opponent's health low, Vegeta lands five command throws in a row making for a clip that's almost too impressive to believe.

Although Lythero has made it his quest to dunk every Goku in existence in Dragon Ball FighterZ as Android 16, he was thwarted by the Ultra Instinct Goku raid boss about a month ago. Even with help from Zyzx and IHeartjustice, they just weren't able to close out the match against raid boss Ultra Instinct Goku.

Despite Ultra Instinct Goku already being a candidate for top tier in Season 3, this particular boss encounter is way more difficult than one might expect thanks to numerous buffs which includes a constant health regeneration effect.
