As part of the special Dragon Ball FighterZ presentation at Tokyo Games Show, we finally got a glimpse of Yamcha and Tien in action via two short trailers. Joining Krillin as the human representatives on the DBFZ roster, these veteran Z-Fighters look like they can hold their own against Saiyans, galactic emperors and bio-mechanical cicada monsters.
Yamcha looks to be the first real rushdown character in DBFZ, using variations of Wolf Fang Fist to overwhelm his opponent. His Spirit Ball is his Level 1 Super, with Yamcha directly controlling the energy sphere to bludgeon his foe. The Blinding Wolf Fang Fist is his Level 3 Super and looks to be a decent corner carry.
As for Tien, he doesn’t fight alone. Similar to Android 18 calling upon her brother, Tien summons his life-long friend Chiaotzu for many of his attacks. Chiaotzu can use his telekinetic powers to briefly stun opponents, allowing Tien to start a combo or escape from a tricky situation. Along with techniques like the Machine Gun Punch and Volleyball Attack, Tien’s Supers having him using his trademark Kikoho. His Level 1 Super is the normal Kikoho, while his Level 3 is the devastating Shin Kikoho. Tien can use the Shin Kikoho multiple times in a row, but it drains his health on repeat uses — like it does in the anime.
