Somebody released a beta mod that makes Dragon Ball's Vegeta into a unique fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Although Goku has typically been the main character of the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super series, Vegeta has had a prominent role since he first appeared in Dragon Ball Z.

It seems that somebody believed Vegeta was important enough to become a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A mod that makes Vegeta playable in the Nintendo platform brawler is currently in a beta thanks to the efforts of VinegarChicken.

The Heat Wave 2022 (hosted by Bum1six3) was one of the big tournaments that occupied the attention of fighting game fans over this past weekend. One of the games that players competed at during the event was Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Legend - A Dragon Ball Tale is an amazing fan-made Dragon Ball Z film that has one of the best Goku transformations ever in it

Dragon Ball Z fans never cease to amaze when it comes to paying tribute to the legendary anime/manga franchise. Akira Toriyama's work has to be among the most mimicked, replicated, and drawn by those who love it of all the genre's series, and every once in a while we see a major project emerge that really shows just how dedicated and talented the fans truly are.

A new fan-made short film called "Legend - A Dragon Ball Tale" premiered just a couple of days ago, and it is already making waves across social media. This animated short is incredibly well done, and it also happens to feature one of the best transformations I've ever seen for our main protagonist and iconic hero, Goku.

Some Dragon Ball FighterZ pros believe the new balance update actually made the game worse

The first half of 2022 was likely the darkest period in Dragon Ball FighterZ's competitive history with Lab Coat Android 21 running rampant as a meta-warping monster.

Bandai Namco and Arc System Works finally attempted to rectify problems facing the game this past week in the Version 1.31 balance update, but some pros and longtime players seem to believe DBFZ is still in a bad spot if not worse off than it was previously.

Dragon Ball Z's Majin Buu Saga retelling in just 5 minutes by Mega64 is about as ridiculous as you might expect

To think that it's been four years since Mega64 retold the story of the Cell Saga in Dragon Ball Z in just five minutes. At long last, Mega64 has returned to cover the Majin Buu Saga, also in just five minutes.

Rather than wasting time with Gohan and his high school life, the video begins with the tournament part of the story. Almost immediately (as time does not permit too much of the story to be retold), chaos ensues as Vegeta turns into Majin Vegeta while Majin Buu is released.

Dragon Ball FighterZ latest balance patch now lets Adult Gohan land 9 uppercuts in one combo with no assists during Level 1

The latest Dragon Ball FighterZ balance update dropped this week and one of its major focuses was to nerf the overly powerful Lab Coat 21 — which it did. Also included in the patch, however, were changes for everyone else on the playable roster, and the community is diving head first into figuring out what each fighter is now capable of and how strong (or weak) they might be now.

Scarlet_Photon on Twitter, an Adult Gohan player since day one (according to their bio), has been actively releasing new clips on Twitter that aim to push the limits of what this character can do here in version 1.31. Among his new capabilities, apparently Adult Gohan is now capable of landing nine whole Dragon Punches in a single combo without using any assists, and it's swaggy as hell.

Lab Coat Android 21 may be the most nerfed fighting game character in recent history but even now she's still probably strong

Every season of Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC added at least 1 new top tier fighter that would dominate the meta for a time, but none of them were as problematic for the game as Lab Coat Android 21.

After months of community complaints and her getting banned from CEO 2022, Bandai Namco finally released the Version 1.31 balance patch last night to arguably make Lab Coat 21 the most nerfed fighting game character in recent memory, but even then, she's still probably going to be strong.
