Dragon Ball Z stories

You only need a solo Fused Zamasu to take an entire character life bar in Dragon Ball FighterZ with this incredibly stylish combo

Combos that take a complete life bar from a player, also known as "touch of death" combos, are not uncommon in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Typically, these types of sequences follow a familiar formula: confirm into a hit, activate Sparking Blast at some point, then use cancels into each of your characters' super attacks to deal massive damage and completely KO your opponent.

However, what's much more impressive is seeing a single character destroy an opponent entirely on their own — especially in very stylish fashion. This touch of death combo only uses Fused Zamasu, but that's all you'll need against the big body Super Saiyan Broly.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be getting a brand new DLC character on September 26 as Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta was revealed Friday at Tokyo Game Show.

From combos that carry from one of side to the screen to the other, and whiff punishes, it's a sight to behold, and the best part is that they are all solo combos.
