Another new transformation reportedly happens in the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie

Several months ago, it was seemingly revealed in a trailer for the upcoming movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, that Piccolo would showcase a new transformation. This was particularly unique as it's traditionally been Saiyans, not Namekians, that transform to increase their power levels. The Namekian way of increasing has typically involved a form of fusion that is permanent.

According to those that saw Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero during its recent midnight showing in Japan, Piccolo apparently isn't the only character that has a brand new transformation. Be aware that there will be spoilers for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero mentioned beyond this point.

Action figure Krillin demonstrates Shaolin Kung Fu prowess while Goku incorporates the Drunken Fist in stop motion videos

Krillin is sometimes seen as something of a joke in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super when compared directly to characters like Goku and Vegeta. Since Krillin is only a human, his power level just isn't able to compare to that of alien races like Saiyans or Namekians.

Despite all of this, Krillin is still considered to be a very competent fighter by "normal" human standards. For example, as a practitioner of Master Roshi's "Turtle Style," Krillin is capable of performing the legendary Kamehameha technique. A recent video of Animist's recently highlighted a version of Krillin that is able to perfectly demonstrate finesse and true fighting prowess.

DragonBallFighterZ characters interrupting one anothers' victory screens is comedic gold

Bandai Namco took special care to pay ample homage to the source material when they developed Dragon Ball FighterZ, and in doing so was sure to add a cinematic element that perfectly sprinkles storytelling amid all the fighting action. Characters have unique interactions with one another, often referencing major manga moments when particular fighters meet, and no one has taken advantage of this content more effectively than Shoyoumomo.

The YouTuber has been creating wonderfully comedic videos that look more like Dragon Ball Z episodes than they do DBFZ footage, and his latest "DBFZ: Interrupting Victory Screens 2!" video is one of his best yet. Things start off straightforward enough as Android 18 and Cell do battle in a traditional DBFZ match, but things take a wild twist when Cell scores a victory and goes into his post-match win sequence.
