One of the most praised parts of Dragon Ball FighterZ has been the implementation of the Dramatic Finish sequences that are triggered when certain conditions are met, depending on match-ending blows between certain characters on certain stages. Specific combinations trigger special pre and post-match cutscenes that re-enact some of the most famous and iconic scenes from the original manga and anime, using the in-game models! Though a myriad of these were already in the base game, the addition of new DLC characters Bardock and Broly has brought four new ones to enjoy, as both of the Legendary Super Saiyan’s defeats at the hands of Super Saiyan Goku and Adult Gohan in Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan and Second Coming are recreated nearly shot-for-shot.

Meanwhile, we can also remember Bardock’s death and the destruction of Planet Vegeta at Frieza’s hands (only in his Final Form this time), as well as a Reverse Dramatic Finish that sees Bardock channel his rage and Saiyan pride into a Super Saiyan transformation to dispatch of the Emperor of the Universe.

IKevinX has returned once again to compare and document all of the references these scenes make to their source material — which you can see below, along with his reference video for the base game’s Finishes.
