Ki Gauge

Max is 7 bars

Ki is the primary offensive resource in the game. Players will use Ki to perform Vanish, Super Attacks, Guard Cancels and more.

Gaining Ki

To increase the Ki Gauge, perform some type of offensive action. This includes attacking the opponent, or simply advancing towards them. As a general rule: the more aggressive the action against the opponent, the more the Ki gained. Moves that cost Ki to use do not gain any Ki.

Ki Cooldown

If Ki is used in a combo, then any Ki gained during the rest of the combo is reduced by approximately 90%.

Ki Charge

Recreate entire episodes of the show

Hold L+S to perform a Ki Charge and quickly fill up your Ki Gauge. There is a fairly long minimum duration that Ki Charge is active for, and you are in Counter Hit state the entire time you're charging. Note that the rate you accumulate Ki accelerates the longer you charge.

Assist Cooldown

Assists and tagging out are disabled, but you can still Ultimate Z Change

After using a Z Assist, that character will not be able to be used again for a set amount of time - you can not use that character for either Z Assist or Z Change until this cooldown ends. Each assist has a different amount of cooldown time and the cooldown timer only begins once after the opponent leaves hitstun/blockstun. During Sparking, the cooldown timer will start even when the opponent is in hitstun/blockstun.

This cooldown also applies after manually tagging in a character.

Ultimate Z Change is unaffected by this cooldown and can be used at any time.

Assist Lockout

Can not use assists at all, not even for Ultimate Z Change

After manually tagging in or getting forced out via Dragon Rush, your teammates enter a lockout state with a red X over their portrait. During this time, you can not use them for Z Assist nor for Ultimate Z Change.

Sparking Blast Icon

Everyone starts with one, when you use it can determine the results of the match

The Sparking Blast Icon is located under your health gauge and indicates that you can use a Sparking Blast. Each player starts with one icon at the start of each match and the only way to get another is to summon Shenron and choose the wish "Give me the ultimate power!".

Dragon Balls

You and your opponent share the balls

In the middle of a match, players can collect Dragon Balls through one of two methods.

The first method is performing combos of specific length:

  • 10-19 hits unlocks the One-Star Dragon Ball
  • 20-29 hits unlocks the Two-Star Dragon Ball
  • 30-39 hits unlocks the Three-Star Dragon Ball
  • 40-49 hits unlocks the Four-Star Dragon Ball
  • 50-59 hits unlocks the Five-Star Dragon Ball
  • 60-69 hits unlocks the Six-Star Dragon Ball
  • 70-79 hits unlocks the Seven-Star Dragon Ball

The second method is by successfully landing an attack with Dynamic! property, performed by connecting the last hit of the grounded light Super Combo and repeatedly pressing L to perform the Super Dash and aerial Super Combo.

This will unlock Dragon Balls in the following order:

Four-Star -> Two-Star -> Five-Star -> Three-Star -> Six-Star -> Seven-Star -> One-Star.

If a Dragon Ball in this sequence was already claimed through the first method, the next in sequence will be obtained instead.

The Dragon Balls are shared between players, meaning EITHER player can use them to summon the mighty dragon Shenron!

Summoning Shenron

What is your wish?

Once all seven Dragon Balls are collected, there is still another condition to be met: The next person to land an attack with Dynamic! property while having a full 7 Ki Gauges will summon Shenron, granting the user one of four benefits (note that summoning Shenron does not expend any Ki Gauges).

This will automatically summon Shenron after the final hit of the combo and you can choose one of 4 wishes:

  • Restore my health! - Full heal for current character
  • Bring back my ally! - Revive a teammate with 20% health
  • Give me the ultimate power! - Give an additional Sparking Icon
  • Make me immortal! - Whole team gradually recovers blue health for the rest of the match

Shenron can only be summoned once per match.
