Over the course of the last few months, IKevinX has been making videos focusing on the numerous anime and manga references for the entire cast of Dragon Ball FighterZ, as Arc System Works has made a point to stick to the source material as closely as possible when crafting movesets and animations.
In one of his more recent videos, he decided to go back and cover some blatantly missed references for some of the older characters — though he ignored Goku (he’d like to make a full video about him once the game officially releases, and he needs more research time due to Goku having more fights than any other character). He’s also waiting to do a Tien video until he’s fully released in a playable state (perhaps during the upcoming open beta, or if he gets added added to a future convention build).
This video mainly covers things like Frieza’s updated intro animation where he powers up to 50%, as well as some missed attacks — such as being able to spend meter after exiting his Golden form to have Sorbet fire a blast from his ring at the opponent, in a callback to Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. Androids 16 and 18 have many attacks taken form Banpresto’s Dragon Ball Z Super Battle 2, among other things. IKevinX also believes he’ll need to eventually make a Part 2, due to the massive influx of characters we’ve been getting lately. You can see the full video below, along with links to his coverage of past characters.
