Dragon Ball Z stories

Wandzardeen's Androids, Cammy, and Mai art pieces are stunning, but wait till you see their Tekken characters

We recently saw some of Wandzardeen's beautifully striking gender bender Street Fighter art here on EventHubs, but it seems the talented artist can drum up just as much magic with the traditional versions of fighting game characters.

We've rounded up a gallery of images, most of them daily doodles, to share with you today. The characters featured span across a handful of fighting game titles such as Dragon Ball FighterZ, King of Fighters, Street Fighter, and Tekken.

A new balance update has been announced for Dragon Ball FighterZ by Bandai Namco Esports over on Twitter.

Shenron used to revive character for no reason other than to be stylish during game winning Dragon Ball FighterZ combo

Dragon Ball FighterZ is just one of the games that has a tournament happening at Texas Showdown 2022 this weekend. While SS4 Gogeta is no Android 21, it's undeniable that SS4 Gogeta is one of the strongest characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ thanks to his unique mechanics.

Although it might be easier to collect the Dragon Balls using SS4 Gogeta's Plus Energy of Justice special, many players instead opt to use the Finish Sign to power up SS4 Gogeta's super enough to perform a one-hit KO. However, Reynald made use of both mechanics to win a game of Dragon Ball FighterZ at Texas Showdown 2022 for no reason other than to style on his opponent.

This Japanese Ukiyo-e style Dragon Ball Z fan art is phenomenal and worthy of being hung up in any nerdy household

Today we have a different spin on some quality fighting game fan art. Now, we have seen the fan favorite characters of Dragon Ball FighterZ (and the Dragon Ball franchise in general) illustrated in numerous ways including Street Fighter 4's promotional art style, but we have never seen them quite like this before.

Seeing the likes of Super Saiyan Goku, Perfect Cell, and even Super Buu in this highly stylized, classic format is a real treat, and any of these pieces would be worthy of being framed and hung in any household.

This might be the craziest solo Trunks combo we've ever seen in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the type of game that lends itself to incredibly long and stylish combos thanks to mechanics like assists and chaining supers together with delayed hyper combos. While those types of sequences definitely push the limits of what's possible in-game and tend to be very impressive, what is even more remarkable is when someone can produce similar results with just one character.

Naturally, opting not to use some of these important features puts some heavy limits on combo potential, but that hasn't stopped TaliosDrakei from coming up with quite possibly the craziest solo Trunks combo we've ever seen. With just the sword on his back, watch as Trunks flies all around the screen whilst putting the hurt on Perfect Cell.
