Dragon Ball: FighterZ’s gameplay took inspiration from many other fighting games. The game includes control scheme and team mechanic from series such as Marvel vs. Capcom. Players choose three characters from the roster of 24, to form their team. Chosen characters can be switched during the fight at any moment or used as a support, here called „Assist move”. Calling in support allows a simultaneous attack from all characters on the player's team. Match is won when all the characters on one team are defeated.The game includes many unique moves known from the series, such as Goku’s Kamehameha, Vegeta’s Final Flash or Piccolo’s Special Beam Cannon. Using these requires charging the Ki bar, which can be done manually. There are seven Ki bars in total, and the type of attack depends on how many of them the player has charged. Certain Ki attacks, when deployed at the enemy with little health will initiate the so-called Destructive Finish, which will cause visible damage to the stage.„Come on Shenron” is a mechanic that allows collecting dragon balls by performing specific combos. When seven of these are collected, Shenron – wish-granting dragon – appears, and rewards player with strength increase, reviving defeated team member, health recovery or regenerating health for the rest of the match.Another feature of Dragon Ball: FighterZ is the "Dramatic Finishes”. During matches between specific characters and on specific stages, when certain conditions are met, a special finishing cutscenes trigger, which are related to the events of the Dragon Ball series. These include climactic endings of such fights like the one between Goku and Frieza on Namek or Kamehameha struggle between Gohan and Cell.
