If they're not in it, I'm not buying the game

why did they give him SSJ2 hair. Never understood the concept of
as if it wasn't already a shitty idea with SSJ3 although that was particularly horrendous compared to Beast Gohan.
so he looks like teen gohan
but his hair is short now. It's not the style it was when he was a kid. Why would it just grow longer for no reason. I can understand hair being spiked and changing color but growing in size is where it loses me.
it's from that ugly CGI movie.
why is teen gohan so damn cute?
Because it's his ssj3.
his own jobber form with 0 wins?
and ugly as shit?

She showed up in Super so I suppose there's a chance of her being in.
>goku can break super armor with roughly 4 blows
>ssj goku can do it in 3
>ssj3 can do it in 1
>so does arale
my only gripe with arale is that she doesn't have the ncha cannon, otherwise i love the little shit for how potentially broken she is
HERE WE GO
If this bro don't got one arm then they might as well not even bother adding him in.
>spends over a decade fighting and failing against the fucking Androids
>lets down all of his friends, family, and the entire earth
Jobhan is a bitch, and Future Jobhan is king bitch.
Future Gohan jobbing for years against the Androids is just Toriyama being a shit writer, in fact the entirety of the Future Trunks timeline makes no sense. Why didn't Goku or even Piccolo ever contact Gohan? What the fuck happened to Popo and why didn't he try to contact Gohan and tell him about the Hyperbolic Time Chamber? Why did Gohan keep going to get his ass kicked instead of taking a break and healing and getting free zenkai boosts? Shit don't make sense.
It's honestly incredible how fast and hard this series went downhill after the Frieza saga.
A real fucking shame.
The HBTC even existing is bad writing and ignoring it when possible is good. It's a cop out for when you write yourself into a corner because the villains outpaced the heroes in a situation where they don't have the time to slowly get strong. Zenkai boosts are also trash used for the same reason because they needed Vegeta to carry Gohan and Krillin but he was already established as pretty low on the ladder of Frieza's army in terms of power and again there was no time for him to gradually build up power. History of Trunks writing wise is completely fine standalone but is surrounded by a bunch of bullshit that shouldn't even exist.
I don't think Gohan ever gets a zenkai in the series, at least they never say he did. Maybe half saiyans can't get them.
Gohan got a Zenkai when Dende healed him.
he did during the Freeza fight, I think Vegeta mentions it. It probably would have been too bloated to talk about it right after the his hidden power got released. I also would make an argument that him getting tuned up by Cell could have helped him reach SS2. But that's just speculation.
I don't like the Time chamber cause Toriyama used it as a "Get out of jail" card.
But it really wouldn't have made a difference, Gohan by the time that the androids attacked, wasn't the most seasoned warrior. If no one was there to train him, no amount of push ups could have helped him.
I would argue with the Zenkai boost, but the dude fought the androids hundreds of times and survived. I really wish he would have made more rules for the Zenkai. Cause for all intents and purposes, F Gohan should have gotten it.
He probably was getting it, but the androids could one tap a super saiyan. Whatever incremental jumps he was getting we’re still dwarfed by being outnumbered by exponentially stronger opponents.
>includes Future Gohan
>he's got two arms, but one of them is limp
name a more stupid choice, either make him one-armed or make him two-armed but he uses both of them
I can't wait to style on Broly and Gogeta shitters online with my boy.
lets get to the crankin'
also this includes all their transformations and alternates
Good list, but I'd add pic related as well. He can easily transform into his true form as a powerup.
I think I'd rather see Naturon
Or have both. Why choose?
Anything else? This routine's getting stale.
this has nothing to do with relevancy otherwise id have issue with gurama or golden metacooler. all pirate robot did was scooby doo chase across the screen, bio broly is so shit they dont even reference the movie in BT3, and gohan black is literally fanfiction.
No more (You)'s
I thought that was Goku black. It's hard to tell from the images I was given for the tier maker. They all got the same toryiama face. Also Pirate Robot is undeniably based as fuck and I can't tell why you'd ever argue otherwise.
love the robo pirate design, looks straight outta Dragon Quest
Same here, since I was a kid I thought it was badass. Some of my old notebooks have a ton of drawings of it along with other dbz stuff.
If they're using kakarots engine like it looks like they are then they've already got the model, they'd need to tweak it a bit though so it looks like the Dragonball one
Okay I fixed it I think
now post the link to the maker
Good luck. that shit is a mess to look through. It's bad enough trying to drag images from the bottom all the way to a row at the top.
Couldn't the fucker who made this have the characters arranged in saga order instead?
it seems like he initially wanted to seperate by series, but then put jiren in heroes
Should I read the manga or watch the anime?
I'm looking at the Vizbigs right now
Manga then anime.
I recommend the original run because after reading the manga the additional stories they add with filler in the anime are funner to watch.
Just started the manga again last month because I decided I should finally read super and wanted to run through the series again.
For Dragon Ball, manga first, then anime.
You can skip the optional prequel since it's mostly filled with pedophilic jokes.
You should start with Raditz but starting with Demon King Piccolo or Piccolo Jr is acceptable.
After that you should watch Super, you can also watch GT but it's not recommended, and you will have to skip the first arc if you do.
Both. Start with Dragon Ball. Without it the entire franchise is a shallow, smoothbrain experience.
SHITnga villains won't appear
better chance of cool manga villains like Moro showing up than literal tumblr OC villains from Heroes.
You mean the canonical sequel to Z? Yeah I read it and it will be represented in the new game.
Sure anon, it will, right after they put those beloved characters in Heroes.
You mean a game no one plays and is filled with characters that literally look like they were made in deviantart?
>a game no one play
Exactly, a game so barren they keep adding more and more content every year.
>No Super Buu
Eat a dick bro
They didn't have a super buu in the tier maker selections. They only had evil buu and I know if I added him, some autist (you) would bitch about Evil Buu being there and not Super Buu too so I took the safer route. Plus I even clarified with
which would include him and his retarded Gotenks and Gohan absorption transformations.
but not Piccolo because who cares about that. Just unnecessary bulk.
Would be so nice to happen, but he probably has less than 10% chance of making it. We'd be lucky just to get the Shenrons that aren't Syn, Nuova and Eis.
What even is gohan blanco?
What the fuck is the form/where does it come from?
When Gohan gets angry he always asspulls some new hidden power because he’s a shitter who needs a crutch and cannot fight anyone unless he has a massive powerlevel advantage. And just like all the other times he got incredible power handed to him on a silver platter he can’t even beat the big bad on his own and needs multiple sources of help because Gohan can’t fight worth a damn. Then Gohan slacks off for the 50th time and the cycle repeats.
You'll get half of those and you'll be happy.
Only if it's the first half
heres my thoughts, im going to assume Bandai continues trying to ignore OG DB, which is why Kid Goku and King Piccolo arent in mandatory
>which is why Kid Goku and King Piccolo arent in mandatory
except they literally are. Kid Goku is essential and even made it in FighterZ and King Piccolo is THE definitive Dragon Ball villain. They never ignored characters from early DB in any Tenkaichi game and I don't see why they would now. I don't expect any series to not receive characters. Whether or not they get a lot is a different question altogether.
while you and I might agree they are essential, bandai doesnt seem to care, xenoverse has no DB characters, Fighterz mashed DB goku into GT.
theyre going to give us the story run through again.
im concerned as to why super 13 of all movie characters would be mandatory for story mode?
>xenoverse has no DB characters, Fighterz mashed DB goku into GT.
to be fair, those aren't Tenkaichi games and don't meet the same criteria.
thats why I put the if bandai is still trying to ignore DB disclaimer. its been a long time since dragonball stuff has appeared in a dragonball fighting game.
>bandai is still trying to ignore DB
You keep saying this but there's nothing to actually suggest this and naming a few random games out of 1000 that exist doesn't make it true.
nothing in xenoverse series, nothing real in fighterz, nothing in kakarot, almost nothing in dokkan, almost nothing in legends. Bandai in recent memory is barely acknowledging dragonball exists.
Why do you keep saying Bandai in general. It's up to the dev team. There's no dude in a suit going
>and no Dragon Ball characters!
It's a Tenkaichi game. It built upon the foundation of having everything including old characters, deep cuts, and everything we wouldn't get in most DBZ games. That the point. There's no way they're not going to not have DB characters based on other unrelated franchises. If we can expect GT of all things, we can expect a few essential DB characters.
because bandai is the one with the dragonball license
>nothing in kakarot
They just announced the 23rd World Tournament as the second arc for Kakarot's second season pass. Or is that too close to Z for you to count it?
>Tenkaichi story having any priority when people only care about the characters and not the storymode
>Super 17 in but Android 13 isn't
what drugs are you on?
Wouldn't it make more sense to move GT to 'Popular' or 'Likely', since it's not really necessary for GT to be included in a story mode.
SS4 will still get in there due to marketability.
Yea move the Gt stuff down one tier, but that doesnt show the likelihood gap between Goku (GT) and Pan/Uub, one is necessary to play the plot of GT the others are there for padding like Guldo would be.
>mandatory for story mode to work
im assuming DBS:Superhero will be the finale of story mode since its the latest animated dragonball content
sometimes i even forget Vegeta's brother is a thing
It’s okay, the movies keep trying to make him canon, and the anime retellings cut all mention of him.
GT still sells gangbusters. Ss4 will show up in game, if anything GT is in game we’ll get the story mode of GT and those characters are mandatory for GT to have a playable storymode
>GT still sells gangbusters
Last time I checked when GT aired it flopped colossally.
So hard in fact that the only time where GT came back in any form outside of video games was in Pedroes.
Not GT the series but things from GT like figures and gacha. Japs and Mexicans love ss4
Given that it's tenkaichi I'd wage every one of cell and Freizas forms are probably getting in transformations where a big gimmick
OG Dragonball is essential for it. One of the coolest things about 3 was having characters from the entire series to that point. I expect the same just with super added for a modern take on the series or it doesn't really deserve the name
You l, me and the other guy that replied about dragonball are in agreement, they just rarely actually give anything to the og in recent memory.
You'll play the game even if they aren't in.
>optional pedophilic prequel characters
Nobody cares about those.
>all teh Z characters
Okay. Nobody cares about Pui-Pui and Bio-Broly, though.
Hatchiyak is also hard forgotten by everyone.
>Grand Tacos characters
Only Baby, Syn and Super 17. Rest can get binned.
Sure for all of them except for the non-canon fanfic toilet paper manga.
>Sure for all of them except for the non-canon fanfic toilet paper manga.
It's canon you delusional redditor.
>it's canon, ese! Mi favela manolita told me so ay caramba!
Kekaroo. Your promotional fanfic will NEVER EVER be canon.
Toriyama said it's canon. Cope retard. You can cry all you want about it here but it doesn't change the fact. Have fun when we eventually see more of it get adapted.
>trunks not understanding his dead species is what makes toyotaco noncanon
>AAIIIIEEE IT'S JUST TRUNKS, I SWEAR
Promotional fanfic manga? Filled with inconsistencies, traced shit and retconned every other day.
>Hatchiyak is also hard forgotten by everyone.
speak for yourself. He was the only reason to buy Raging Blast 2.
>Raging Blast 2
Forgot about that one, sure then. I graduated from Dragon Ball games before that one came out so to me it's always a character that only really appears in PES.
>Toriyama said it's canon
Also, Toriyama? HEAVILY involved with the canon movies.
Tracetaro? Adapting the CANON movies. Canon movies? Completely discard every bit of fanfic Toyotaro wrote, like Moro and FANFICnolah.
>HEAVILY involved with the canon movies.
He literally is thrown ideas about the manga and has to agree or say no. Whatever he agrees on gets put in and that's the official canon. It may not be a ton of input but he's directly involved.
You know what, this tier list is such a pain in the ass, just gonna make a list of like 80 characters we'll probably get.
Adult Gohan (Super)
Future Trunks (Sword)
Future Trunks (Armor)
Future Trunks (Super)
Missing gotenks but otherwise everything you said is definitely in
AFAIR, but aren't Fusions treated as transformations in the BT games? It's just that since you can choose what form to start in you can just skip to Gotenks.
Maybe, I never fused in the game proper.
Honestly, what I really want is for Super Buu to be able to absorb every playable character and get a form for it.
But that's never happening.
nor should it
Call me crazy but I would honestly prefer if they had a smaller roster and focused more on making the game play well. You really need shit like Bio-Broly? Come on, man.
>I would honestly prefer if they had a smaller roster and focused more on making the game play well.
Then play other games that aren't Tenkaichi. it's literally a typical arena fighter. The only reason to want to play it is for it's absurdly large roster. Gameplay will more or less be what you expect from other games in this genre. All it has to do is play good enough. It will never be anything groundbreaking and will always have the appealing factor that makes people want to play these games. It's why we have other games like FighterZ and Kakarot.
Why would I want to play that piece of shit?
It doesn't have to be groundbreaking, I just want it to be fun. Shit man, how does someone get to be so complacent like this?
>uh guys I think we should have less content 🙂
Jesus, all I'm asking for is a little quality over quantity. What's so wrong with that?
>1 (ONE) Dragon Ball game that's biggest draw is having the most autistic "Everyone's in" roster
>"gawwsshhhh bros I wish it was like every other dragon ball game!"
K. Y. S.
Now you're just putting words in my mouth. Grow up.
>Now [IESLB HEADCANON]
>I would honestly prefer if they had a smaller roster
This is roughly what my ideal "FighterZ-like" would look like with maybe a few modifications, but Tenkaichi doesn't need to be like this, it needs some silliness, even balance isn't as important.
FighterZ is more of a MvC game. I'd rather have another Budokai game.
>even balance isn't as important
The lack of any semblance of balance what makes Tenkaichi, Tenkaichi. They better not ruin that.
>it's supposed to be bad
this is why we can't have nice things
A game not being balanced doesn't mean it's bad. Ironically, you saying a non-competitive arena fighter has to be balanced is why we can't have nice things. Esports gayry has poisoned your mind.
no, the fuckhuge roster was the main draw for budokai tenkaichi. Just give me a lot of fanservice and attention to details, shit like everyone charging ki slower underwater except saibamen since they're plants or how tayoken doesn't work on characters wearing sunglasses.
Shit like this is what made bt3 the best dragonball game ever to me and many other kids
its going to be complete ass anyway
its been more than 15 years since spike even made a good game
doesn't need to be good, just needs a lot of characters
>doesn't need to be good
so you're completely fine with +20 billion dlc packs and the game having jump force combat and graphics?
NTA but I just got lambasted for suggesting otherwise so I guess that's the consensus.
Tenkaichi was a mistake.
I want a return to budokai
This. Give me a proper follow-up to Shin Budokai and Burstlimit.
>inb4 some tard brings up FighterZ
>A good Tournament of Power Stage
>A roster that is at least 75% as big as the original
>Characters to have big power gaps like the original
>>A roster that is at least 75% as big as the original
If this game doesn't deliver a larger roster than 3, it's shit and I will stick to the spanish mod
Agreed, game's gonna suck anyway so might as well have a bigger roster or otherwise there's no real point to it even existing.
I doubt it will have a bigger roster at launch. They will nickle and dime everything with DLC.
Which honestly might not be a bad thing since it will mean more characters will get unique movesets
>it will mean more characters will get unique movesets
I don't belive that in the slightest.
DLC characters will almost definitely all get unique movesets, or at least mostly unique movesets.
Yes that would be ideal, but I see absolutely no reason why you would have so much faith in this developer.
That doesn't make any sense. Why would anyone buy the DLC packs if the additional characters all play the same?
Look at this thread, man. Tenkaichi fans literally only care about how many characters there are. Gameplay is obviously not a priority to anyone but a very small minority here.
And we keep saying that Tenkaichi's appeal is its roster. You gays crying about unique gameplay and movesets is exactly why you got shit like FighterZ which still had three Gokus and Vegetas without the secondary characters to supplement it.
>still had three Gokus
Try 5: Goku, SS Goku, SSB Goku, GT Kid Goku and UI Goku.
Every character from BT3 should be in. I will accept no cuts.
dbscholars, who the fuck is the character between cell and babidi?
Cell MAX from the most recent movie, just a faggy recolor with no personality.
Máximo de Celda
Bio Broly but Cell
Is it true goku has never actually beaten vegeta, prince of all saiyans?
Kinda crazy haha
He never needed to, bejita could barely beat Cui when he got to Namek, Goku Beat down the entire Ginyu Force seconds after getting out of his space ship.
Vegeta hasn't won a fight since like Android 13. He isn't even on Goku's radar.
you've got so many nobodies on that list I'm surprised you didn't include this ugly fuck
Anyone saying GT wont be in the game is coping hard. SSJ4 is literally featured in the trailer.
It pretty much has to have the same if not improved roster as 4, with no concern for balance just being accurate to Dragonball power levels and abilities along with local co-op or it won't even be able to compare to 2 and 3. I know this has an extremely low chance of happening because companies have all become greedy fucks so I guess I'll keep playing 2&3 for my dbz fix.
I hope I'm wrong Tenkaichi games have always been a love letterr to dbz. A huge part of the love and the fun was the roster of mostly detail accurate characters and being able to make your dream battles happen so if they fuck this up all they'll do is piss off fans of the old ones.
It looks like they might be using the Kakarot engine so they should have a lot of the models already made.
there's literally no way they can get this right.
It will probably be 30 playable characters and 4.99 packs/30 dollar season pass. Just a reminder of how better things were 18 years ago.
Dragon Ball is fucking cringe and garbage.
Where is the Hunter X Hunter game Bandai Namco?
the games on haitus prease undustano
Hunter X Hunter is getting new chapters and Togashi is working together with his wife
Togashi peaked with YYH.
>retard wants sixty five characters minimum
I'm glad video game companies ignore morons like you.
