Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Characters

Dragon Ball has been around for decades and still remains fresh because of its dynamic evolution. The addition of new characters is one of the many ways this game keeps things fresh. Moreover, some characters have been evolving and getting better over the years. As a result, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 features over 90 characters with unique identities, powers, and shortcomings.

Such a huge roster of characters is convenient. However, it can also feel overwhelming, especially considering that your choice of character is strategic. Fortunately, some characters stand apart from the rest with incredible powers and fighting styles. Here is an overview of the ten best characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

10. Goku (Super Saiyan God)

NEW GOKU (SUPER SAIYAN GOD) - Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 - Gameplay Mods

Goku, a mortal, needs to wield the power of a god to defeat Beerus, the God of Destruction. The result is Super Saiyan God, a powerful upgrade of the loveable character. This upgraded version of Goku is more proficient in battle and has a balanced set of Ki and physical attack techniques.

While he has new abilities, most of Goku’s abilities as Super Saiyan God are his usual abilities with higher stats. The most notable one is the Super Spirit Bomb Ultimate Attack, with a damage rate of up to 85%. Moreover, his Super Kamehameha ability has an infinite range.

9. Golden Frieza

Frieza had always done the bare minimum before upgrading to Golden Frieza. His upgrade came during his resurrection after a bit of training, highlighting his great potential. He has an impressive skill set, which mostly focuses on long-distance combat and Ki attacks.

One of Golden Frieza’s best abilities is the Crazy Finger Shot, which unleashes a string of 14 blasts to deter advancing enemies. He also uses his Emperor’s Edge ability to push enemies back, leaving them open to combo attacks.

8. Goku (Super Saiyan 4)

NEW GOKU & VEGETA (SUPER SAIYAN 4) - Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Goku transformed into Super Saiyan 4 during his initial fight with Super Baby 2. Notably, it was his strongest form before Dragon Ball Super came out, and he is a reliable character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

Super Saiyan 4 specializes in close-range combat, unleashing quick and aggressive melee attacks. His ultimate technique is Dragon Fist, which unleashes an image of Shenron upon the opponent. Additionally, the Super Dragon Fist unleashes a string of three quick close-range strikes upon the enemy. He also has a few Ki techniques, including the Ki Blast Cannon.

7. Cooler (Final Form)

Cooler is Frieza’s older brother. He doesn’t come into the picture until Goku kills Frieza. However, he is nothing like his smaller brother, and his larger build and powerful attacks prove that. Interestingly, he asserts this fact and proves it through his Super Soul.

The character boasts power Ki techniques in his Final Form, enabling him to counter Goku’s physical, close-range playstyle. Notably, his Supernova Cooler Ultimate Attack unleashes a charged Ki blast that causes 45% damage. He can also rush towards his enemies from above using his Death Crasher technique.

6. Vegito (Super Saiyan Blue)

Vegito is a fusion of Vegeta and Goku, and a more laidback version of Gogeta. While he is not a new character, his god-like status of Super Saiyan Blue is relatively recent. He is a menace in this form, combining deadly physical and Ki attacks against his enemies.

Vegito’s ultimate attack technique is Spirit Sword Crash, which unleashes three strikes to inflict 50% damage. He can also unleash long-range attacks with the Final Kamehameha technique to inflict 40% damage.

5. Gogeta (Super Saiyan)

The ORIGINAL Most Overpowered Character! Playing SUPER GOGETA In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

You would be forgiven for thinking that Gogeta and Vegito are the same characters. Both are cocky and have a habit of taunting their enemies. However, Gogeta has a more serious demeanor than Vegito despite his tendency to play around when fighting. Notably, he is one of the most powerful Saiyans in the entire franchise.

Gogeta seems to have inherited Goku’s preference for close-range melee attacks with techniques like the Ultimate Kamehameha or Stardust Breaker. His best technique is Soul Punisher, which unleashes a charged and colorful Ki blast with an extensive AOE radius.

4. Goku (Rose Black)

The Rose Black version of Goku is a merciless villain on a mission to destroy everyone in his path. He is a sadistic character whose gameplay mostly focuses on punishing the opponent by luring them into a false offensive. Interestingly, he uses OG Goku’s abilities and fighting skills despite their different personalities. However, his skill set is more condensed and includes a black and pink version of his Kamehameha Wave.

3. Broly (Full Super Saiyan)

Broly is one of the most brutal antagonists in the franchise. He stands out for his brute strength and unending anger, which fuel his aggressive fighting techniques.

Broly’s best technique is Gigantic Meteor, a Ki blast that tracks opponents down and deals 45% damage. He can also blast a series of five Ki balls at long ranges using his Blaster Shell technique. Interestingly, Broly recharges his Ki faster than usual using his Full Power Charge ability. However, it is also worth noting that his strength makes his moves a bit slow.

2. Goku (Ultra Instinct)

Goku becomes even better than the gods when he masters the angels’ technique of Ultra Instinct. It enables him to move his body and mind independently, making his motions precise. He is so powerful that he can obliterate opponents in the blink of an eye using his best techniques and abilities. Moreover, he can purge entire battlefields in minutes using his Ultra Instinct power. Interestingly, his Ultra Instinct Super Soul gives him a significant power boost when his health drops to 50%.

1. Hit

While the Ultra Instinct version of Goku sounds great, Hit is the deadliest hitman in the Multiverse. He boasts several impressive abilities. For example, he can shatter Hyper Armor and Guard using his Sledgehammer attack. Interestingly, he can also strike back at anything that connects with him and inflict 20% damage using his Flash Fist Crush technique. Most notably, the character is easy to master for both novice and experienced players.
