Overview[edit]


DBFZ Bardock Icon.png Bardock
"It's up to me now...I'm...I'm gonna change the future!"
Lore:The biological father of Kakarot. A low class Saiyan warrior, however the head of a team colloquially named the "Bardock Squad". After travelling to planet Kanassa, home of clairvoyant aliens that he had been hired by Frieza to kill, his team was killed by Dodoria, and Bardock was granted clairvoyance by the last remaining Kanassan. With this power, he discovered that Frieza planned to eradicate the entire Saiyan race and made a bold last stand. In the end, he was completely overpowered and destroyed, along with Planet Vegeta and the near entirety of his people. He died happy, however, after receiving a vision that his son, Kakarot, would defeat the tyrant and avenge his fallen race...

Playstyle[edit]

DBFZ Bardock Icon.png Bardock is a brawler character who dominates the neutral game with his combination of fast and far-reaching attacks.
Pros Cons
  • Easy: Incredibly low execution for his universal BnB's.
  • Brawny Buttons: Extremely solid moves boasting ridiculous hitboxes. 5LL infamously brings opponents down for easy hit-confirms and assist extensions.
  • Commanding Neutral: Very oppressive neutral game, enforced by his vacuum normals and tremendously quick lariat, Rebellion Spear.
  • Stagger Pressure: Excellent stagger capabilities, with every normal outside of his heavies being safe on block.
  • Absurd Assists: A is a long-range fast strike, useful in neutral and combos. B has an incredibly high amount of hitstun and blockstun while also hitting full-screen.
  • Assist Reliant: Straightforward mix-ups without assists.
  • Left/Right: Cross-ups can be difficult to set up due to the nature of his j.M.
  • Post-Super Okizeme: Unremarkable knockdown after Revenge Assault, only receiving a safe jump afterwards.

  • Can be canceled into from itself, even on whiff.
  • Jump cancelable on hit.

Bardock does a gut punch that moves him forward slightly. Has deceptively long range and very fast start-up speed, making it a great button for contesting the opponents pressure or to anti-air opponents who IAD.

5LL 700 All - 11 3 18 -5 -
  • Can be canceled into from 5L, even on whiff.
  • Jump cancelable on hit.
  • Groundbounces airborne opponents.
  • Auto-corrects on side switch.

Bardock does a two-handed downward smash that moves him forward slightly. Its infamously large hitbox, auto-correction, and fantastic scaling makes this an attack to be feared. Drags down aerial opponents for a full combo conversion.

5LLL 1000 All U3+ 13 3 17 -4 -
  • Can be canceled into from 5LL, even on whiff.
  • Auto-corrects on side switch.

Bardock does an uppercut that moves him forward. Just like the other two attacks in his auto combo, this move has a massive hitbox that can snipe airborne opponents, which when combined with its forward movement and auto-correction makes it track the opponent's movement. Forces a Smash, even if it has already been used in a combo, though Bardock doesn't use this for his optimal combos.

  • Attacks straight ahead.
  • Keeps the opponent in place on grounded hit.
  • Sends opponent flying horizontally on air hit.
  • Very fast for the distance it travels.
  • Level 1 move, so it doesn't true blockstring into vanish

Probably one of Bardock's strongest weapons, if not his best. Travels incredibly far and incredibly fast, allowing it to be used as an ability to dominate neutral. It's safe on block, and can be used to instantly start pressure and turn the blocked attack into his favor with an assist. And if the lariat hits, Bardock can get a full combo afterwards. If the air version is used and hits the opponent, they are basically forced to fall right back to the ground, possibly into another mix-up to further continue pressure.

The ground version can easily eat a medium punish with most characters if predictable, like with a round-start lariat. If the opponent anticipates and predicts it correctly, they can throw out a medium, usually 5M, to catch its active frames before the hitbox and get a free 50% combo.

  • Damage depends on distance.
  • Ground version is invulnerable to head property attacks. Has recovery on the way down.
  • Aerial version ground bounces, spiking the opponent upwards which can lead to snapback setups.

The medium version of his lariat has some niche uses during neutral. It can be used to intercept opponents who press buttons in the air, both on the ground and in the air. Despite this, the reward isn't anything significant, as vanish is mandatory to extend combos.

With the move's high recovery it can't be used as a mix-up tool during blockstrings.

  • Damage depends on distance: midscreen → midscreen to almost fullscreen → exactly fullscreen.
  • Moves straight ahead, crosses up on hit or block.
  • On hit, can followup with an additional attack by pressing L/M/H. This attack is identical to 236M/j.236M and doesn't cost Ki.

Mostly handy as a potential full-screen conversion off of 5S.

  • Causes a short sliding knockdown.

Using this as a aerial combo ender grants little oki mid-screen, and is mostly used to get more corner carry than ending with j.LLL. It is also useful to end with this if the hitstun decay is reaching its limits, and j.214M would potentially drop the combo.

  • Causes a ground bounce sliding knockdown.

The preferred combo ender to combos ending at the corner, as Bardock is granted a ground bounce sliding knockdown that gives a good amount of time for combo extensions, supers, or simply more oki.

  • Causes a ground bounce sliding knockdown.

Can combo off j.S midscreen, mostly used as the combo ender that grants both enough oki to use supers from and a bit more corner carry than j.LLL. Can also be used as a more unconventional air-to-air, as it covers more spots and is more active than his straightforward lariat.

  • Very fast.
  • Leaves opponent standing on grounded hit.
  • Sends opponent flying horizontally on air hit.

Bardock's assist A is pretty solid, and is always a good choice if you're looking for something that can quickly get a hit in during the mid range. It's pretty good in blockstrings as well due to it's speed, as you can throw it into a blockstring very easily without fear of it being reflected or wake-up reversal'd. You can't go wrong with this option, even with how good assist B is, so really just pick based on what your team/playstyle is looking for.

  • Somewhat slow, but high blockstun.
  • On hit, opponent floats in place for a total of a full second, allowing for ridiculously easy followups.
  • Virtually a C assist but with less startup and recovery.

Bardock comes out and performs Tyrant Lancer. Does not do the followup on hit or block and instead deals 60 frames of hitstun, allowing even conversions off beams or ki blasts from maximum distance. Extremely useful by not only tracking the opponent on the ground for full screen hit-confirms, but also has incredibly high blockstun, allowing for all kinds set-ups should you so choose. While you give up the fast, strong tool of A, the benefits that B offers is titanic, acting as a screen-wide gut punch that grants plenty of time to start a combo, and automatically enables mix-up pressure on block.

  • Teleports to the opponent and performs a two-hit combo. Causes groundbounce sliding knockdown on hit.
  • Tracks anywhere on the screen

Not really worth it. While Assist C can be good in it's own right for many characters, Bardock's other two options are just much too good to really give up. It does track anywhere on the screen - even in the air, so it does have some utility there, but even then it's hard to give up the options of assist A's fast reach and versatility, or assist B's incredibly high blockstun and easy long-range confirms on hit. Your other characters probably have better Assist C options than Bardock does, anyway.

Air 2200 [1100] All UDV 10+4 - Total 72 - 10-21 All
  • Hold up or down to aim the ground version upwards, and air version downwards. Downward version causes a ground bounce even at high up.
  • Normal version has minimum damage of 814, downward is 748.
  • As Saiyan Spirit follow-up, only does half the damage.
  • If you Ultimate Z-Change into this move in the corner, Bardock will be pushed out of the corner, seemingly to allow you to aim it easily.

Ground 1318, 1590 All UDV 4+6 1(2)2 33 [41] -19 [-26] 1-14 All
Air 1318, 1590 All UDV 4+6 1(2)2 Until L - 1-14 All
  • Minimum damage: 395, 318.
  • Invincible on startup.
  • Goes just over half screen, only does 1590 if hits at the tip.
  • Can be followed up with Riot Javelin by pressing L/M/H/S if the move hits. This version can also be directed up or down.
  • Relatively short recovery means that Bardock can possibly use this super multiple times in a combo with assists. However, this scales the damage heavily and is not recommended.
  • Opponents can vanish on reaction to the startup, so it isn't a great reversal against normals. The vanish does whiff, however.

  • Bardock transforms into a Super Saiyan and advances towards the opponent, striking them with his shoulder.
  • Grounds both players on hit even when used in the air.
  • 1718 minimum damage.
  • Opponent is positioned significantly away from Bardock after his level 3 animation effect, significantly weakening its pressure usage.

Bardock's level 3. Useful for a safe jump (dash jump or 669) and nothing else. With assists it's possible to get a small mix-up.
