Dragon Ball FighterZ player creates hilarious DBZ anime edit to express what online feels like trying to battle through extreme lag

Dragon Ball FighterZ quickly became one of the biggest fighting game releases of the entire generation, but there's one area that's still holding the title back from reaching its full potential — the game's online netplay.

Fighting game content creator Dotodoya even recently went as far as to make a comical edit of a Dragon Ball Z episode to express the pain of trying to play through a laggy online match that ends up being legitimately unplayable.

Dragon Ball FighterZ on the worst graphics settings looks like a terrible PlayStation 1 game but it's still totally playable

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a visual marvel. Arc System Works and Bandai Namco did a fantastic job recreating Goku, Frieza, Cell, Vegeta, and other beloved anime characters in a beautiful graphics engine that oftentimes looks as good or better than the cartoon shows.

But what happens if you completely tank the graphics settings and play the game then? MoldyBagel put together a video that conducts this exact experiment, and the results are not unlike the visuals of a terrible PlayStation 1 game.

Could a manga exclusive character like Moro someday make it into Dragon Ball FighterZ?

Although there are plenty of versions of Goku and Vegeta in the game, it can be argued that Dragon Ball FighterZ hosts a fairly diverse roster of 41 characters.

In other words, Dragon Ball FighterZ sees at least some representation from Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Super, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball movies.

Dragon Ball FighterZ director reveals solo project Varvarion that's giving off some serious Anarchy Reigns vibes

Dragon Ball FighterZ director Junya Motomura announced Varvarion this weekend, which is a new solo project that is a good bit different from his previous fighting game works, but still looks to be full of its DNA.

Varvarion is described as a combat action game developed by one person that looks like a potentially more technical arena fighter / brawler with a ton of flare from Motomura's previous Arc System Works titles.

Among comic book and anime fans, a crossover battle between Dragon Ball's Goku and D.C. Universe's Superman has been one of the most hotly debated topics that's never truly been resolved. Both these characters have appeared in fighting games (Dragon Ball FighterZ and Injustice), but never in the same game together.

Of these two superpowered icons, who would prevail over the other? GamebillStudio recently uploaded a video that pits them against one another.

Beerus finally looks like a God of Destruction in ridiculous Dragon Ball FighterZ combo that'll make your brain hurt trying to keep up with the orbs

Beerus for the longest time was usually considered almost joke character status due to how easily his special orbs could be negated in Dragon Ball FighterZ, but that sentiment has certainly changed here in Season 3 with some players showcasing real dirt with the God of Destruction in 2020.

The playerbase for Beerus even recently began an online combo contest to raise that potential and awareness further, and Talios, likely the frontrunner for the whole thing, has now released their final entry into the competition that flies beyond the realm of ridiculous.

'Don't think I forgot about the humiliation I suffered on Earth because of you' - Nappa before an even more humiliating defeat to Goku in animation

Nappa is a character that's largely been forgotten about since his death during the Saiyan Saga of Dragon Ball Z. Although it was Vegeta that ultimately killed him, his humiliating defeat was at the hands of Goku.

If Nappa were to revived, there's no doubt that he'd be unable to get revenge against Goku, especially with Ultra Instinct. If matched up against Goku in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Nappa makes it clear that he still intends to try.

The Shenron summoning mechanic is one of the least used in Dragon Ball FighterZ even though he has some broken powers. There's apparently even more the eternal dragon can break in the game too, however.

DBFZ lab master Riceeatingchin1 recently shared a comical discovery which involves combining Shenron and the Ginyu Force together for a silly assist glitch that messes with their animations.

Three ways to potentially fix Super Dashes in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Super Dashes remain Dragon Ball FighterZ's most divisive mechanic three years in, and even Bandai Namco's recent poll on the matter showed that most of the 33,000 people that voted do not like them as they are now.

Cleary, the advice of get good and 2H them on reaction isn't exactly holding up — especially at a time when the vast majority of the matches are being played online — but what routes could Bandai Namco and Arc System Works try in the future to help fix some of the frustrations Super Dashes can bring?

Piccolo's Homing Energy Blast and Master Roshi's Martial Spirit are among the top 10 best assists in Dragon Ball FighterZ according to Jmcrofts

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting game where team building at the character selection screen is critical towards achieving optimal play. One can argue that the assist or support characters are even more important than the "point" characters.

A team in Dragon Ball FighterZ is more likely to work if one or more of the fighters have access to a strong assist. As such, it's vital to understand which assists are the best in the game.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championships recently finished up its second week of compeition which has provided some of the hypest tournament sets all year — with one in particular especially standing out.

PG|HookGangGod and Nitrobros' first to five set this past weekend is probably the best one of the whole event so far that left just Ultra Instinct Goku and Broly left standing in a 4-4 tie while IFC|YipeS and Bum1six3 absolutely lost it on commentary.
