How to Read Frame Data
If this is your first time looking at Frame Data, or if you need a better understanding of anything you see within the charts, please refer to the reading guide on Frame Data.
Yes characters have different walk speed. If you have the exact numbers, please feel free to add them here.
Every character shares the same fall speed in DBFZ, with Majin Buu as the only exception having slower fall speed (gravity or weight in other ArcSys games). This only affects his neutral and his own combos, and doesn't come into play when he's getting hit, ensuring that beside hurtbox differences, there are no combos that only work on Buu due to his unique fall speed. Different fall speed also doesn't affect his frame advantage after using Vanish or Sparking Blast.
|Character||Normal Jump||High Jump||High Jump (Holding )||High Jump (Holding )|
when Upward Velocity < 0)
|Gravity (Holding )|
Most of the cast share the same horizontal air acceleration and max speed while drifting. Air acceleration is applied for each frame or is held down.
|Forward High Jump
|Backward High Jump
|Maximum Drift Speed|
|Android 16 / Nappa||10150||9100||10850||9100||1400||17500|
Dragon Rush Ki Gain
On hit with a Smash! Dragon Rush, the attacker will continuously gain Ki as they chase their opponent down with the automatic Super Dash. However, due to hurtbox differences, they'll reach the defender after a varying amount of frames, resulting in different amounts of Ki gain.
|Performed on||Total Ki gain at max hold
|Ki gain during Super Dash only|
|A17, A18, BDK, YGH, AGH, GTG, GTK, KBU, KRL, ZAM†On air hit against Zamasu (Fused)||94.75%||49.75%|
|A16, A21, L21, SBR, GNY, FRZ, GTA, GT4, GKN, GKU, BGK, KEF, MBU, RSH, NAP, SB2, TEN, TNK, VGN, VGT, BVG, VTO, VDL, ZAM†On ground hit against Zamasu (Fused)||92.5%||47.5%|
|BRS, CEL, GUI, BLK, HIT, JNB, JRN, PIC, YAM||90.25%||45.25%|
Which character performs Dragon Rush and their positions on stage do not affect Ki gain.
For example, if one lands a partial hold Smash! Dragon Rush (27 hits) on Kid Buu, they'll gain 2.5*7 + 25 + 49.75 = 92.25% Ki gauge, but against Cell, they'll only gain 2.5*7 + 25 + 45.25 = 87.75% Ki gauge.
Vanish's hitbox has a consistent minimum height across every character (beside one that will be noted below), and during a normal ground bounce, there's a 1F to 2F window right before the character leaves the ground again where their hurtbox is extremely low to the ground.
This means that it is possible to use Vanish against some ground bounced opponents, whiff it, and continue with the combo similar to a Vanish (No Attack).
Characters that can be Whiff Vanished: Android 17, Android 18, Android 21, Beerus, Frieza, Gohan (Teen), Gohan (Adult), Goku (GT), Hit, Kefla, Kid Buu, Krillin, Trunks, Vegito (SSGSS), Zamasu (Fused).
Characters that can perform Whiff Vanish: Everyone except Majin Buu, as his Vanish is the only one with lower hitbox.

- If multiple attacks with landing recovery were performed, the highest value will be used
- Air blocking removes landing recovery
- Most attacks that remove landing recovery do so the moment they're performed
- Mid-attack landing recovery
- Some aerial attacks only receive landing recovery if the character lands before it finishes recovery
- This type of landing recovery overrides typical added landing recovery, and is cancelable into Supers, Meteors.

- Ground bounce: sticks to the ground for 5f before bouncing up, can be hit OTG, the last 2f has really low hurtbox
- Attacks that put grounded opponent in a sliding or ground bounce state eats up the first 1f of slide/ground bounce, e.g. ground bounce animation is now only 4f.
