Here's why everyone is suddenly playing Android 21 in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Android 21 made a huge splash at the launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ as a character who was both high quality waifu material and uniquely developed specifically for the game, but the hype gradually died down when she was found by the majority of the community to be too weak to be called on for most teams.

FighterZ is now in its third season and thus has seen plenty of development in terms of both roster and character balance, and Android 21 has somewhat suddenly splashed her way to center stage yet again, this time for her competitive abilities. Why are pros like EG|SonicFox, EG|Dekillsage, Supernoon, and others often using her now? RathFGC may have the answers.

Super Baby 2's raid boss battle is a blast with your bros but don't let him steal your friends and make them evil

Most players probably overlook the special raid boss battle events added to Dragon Ball FighterZ every time a new DLC character is released for the fighting game, but they never fail to provide a unique co-op experience that's a blast to take on with friends.

Who is 'Super Baby 1' considering that we got Super Baby 2 in Dragon Ball FighterZ?

Super Baby 2 recently released as a new playable fighter for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Like GT Goku and Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta, this character actually comes from the now non-canonical Dragon Ball GT anime.

Wait, Master Roshi's assist nerf was actually a buff?

Master Roshi's B Assist quickly became one of the best options in Dragon Ball FighterZ and even played a part in BC|Kazunoko's big Japanese finals victory over CO|Go1, which led the developers to nerf the move with Super Baby 2's release.

That small gap inserted between the two hits was supposed to be a way for players to have a couple of options to try and escape the pressure, but RathFGC makes a pretty convincing case that the hermit's assist is now actually better than it was before.

Krillin fails to reach and punish Super Baby 2's level 3 super over and over again in this funny Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 clip

In the Dragon Ball Z series, Krillin is certainly familiar with receiving the short end of the stick. While his training partner, Goku, far surpassed him in power, Krillin is short, bald, and often fighting opponents that way outclass him.

This Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 clip from CientifiKOF just seems to fit perfectly with that motif as we see Krillin up against the game's newest DLC character, Super Baby 2. Unfortunately for the mainstay Z Warrior, he just cannot seem to reach his opponent after a whiffed level 3 super โ€” but from no lack of trying.
