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.

How would Baby Vegeta play if he were added into Dragon Ball FighterZ as DLC?

There are still two DLC characters en route for the third season of Dragon Ball FighterZ, and while we don't know who they are or when they'll be revealed, there are a handful of figures who have a better shot than others to fit the bill.

Globku is a YouTuber who has been speculating quite a bit in recent times as to the most likely S3 candidates. Globku deems Dragon Ball GT's Baby Vegeta as having a "decent chance" of being added, and has produced a video imagining how the character might play should this come to fruition.

There may be no one left to scare Go1 in Dragon Ball FighterZ but that didn't stop P.T. from making the world champ jump out of his chair

CO|Go1's crazy reaction speed and attentiveness led him to become the world champion of Dragon Ball FighterZ, but perhaps those skills actually prove to be a bit of a detriment in the realm of horror games.

Following yesterday's stream of his first to 10 set in DBFZ against CO|Fenrich, Go1 faced a challenge he'd never encountered before by playing the infamous P.T. demo for the first time.

Go1's defensive skills are still absolutely ridiculous in Dragon Ball FighterZ and so is his tactical trolling in his first to 10 set against Fenrich

CO|Go1's journey through the lifespan of Dragon Ball FighterZ thus far is one of the best FGC stories in a long time after starting out on top only to be bested in the game's first year before becoming the world champion earlier this year.

Earlier today, the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Final winner held a special first to 10 offline set against his teammate CO|Fenrich which showcased that Go1 is still as crazy as he ever was โ€” especially in terms of how he uses defense to stay in control of the game.

Bandai Namco delays announcement of official online Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament

With the world being encouraged to stay at home due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, offline tournaments here in the fighting game community have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Many major companies have begun shifting their focus to online, with major tournament circuits operating almost entirely over the internet.

It looks as though a Dragon Ball FighterZ announcement in this vein was planned for June, but that has ultimately been delayed as well.

With the release of Ultra Instinct Goku a few weeks back Dragon Ball FighterZ now has just three more planned additions en route for its Season 3 DLC pack. Though the community has been happy to play both UI Goku and Kefla, we have to wonder who else is coming down the pike.

Cell tends to be a bit of a narcissist in Dragon Ball Z. Upon achieving his final form, he refers to himself as being the perfect being. Hence the name "Perfect Cell."

Broly can get ridiculous amounts of oki pressure in Dragon Ball FighterZ to do whatever he wants when paired with the right C Assist

Dragon Ball FighterZ's C Assists added in Season 3 largely go underutilized due to their extended cooldown times though some players have been putting in the work to prove they're viable options as much as the first two.

The Cool Kid93 has been one of the few speaking out for the strength of C Assist after hitting the lab with the moves for months, and he's recently implemented a new and slightly odd use for Gotenks' which can apparently give Broly crazy amounts of oki.
