Dragon Ball FighterZ character move lists

All the special and super moves you'll need to learn.

Developer Arc System Works has made jumping into fighting games for the first time a joy with Dragon Ball FighterZ. But while the 24 base characters share a degree of overlap in their basic moves, each has a selection of special moves you’ll need to master on your path to the top.

In this article we cover every special and super move available for the playable characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ. We’ll update the guide as new characters arrive in DLC or changes are made, so be sure to check back here when they arrive.

You’ll need to unlock Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta to practice with them. Check our guide to find out how.
