Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Android 21 As Playable Character

by Jelani James


The latest issue of V-Jump has revealed that Dragon Ball FighterZ OC Android 21 will be the game’s final playable character on the base roster.

We have known for quite some time that Android 21 would be involved in the game thanks to past info dumps from Bandai Namco, so her being playable doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. However, what’s notable here is that she takes on an entirely new form — a battle form one might say — that sees her remove her lab coat and humanoid appearance to essentially become a Majin. Not only does she have pink skin, but she also has a clear fondness for sweets. In fact, the only thing that separates her from other female majin is that she has a tail instead of a head “tentacle.”

Here are her stats:

Ease of Use: A
Power: B
Speed: A
Reach: S
Technique: S
Energy: B

Based on the info provided, it looks like she’ll have a mechanic similar to Super Smash Brothers’ Kirby, that allows her to absorb an enemy’s strength and use their signature skill. For example, absorbing power from Krillin allows Android 21 to use “Solar Flare.” With such an ability at her disposal, it’s no surprise that she has a Technique rating of “S,” as the tactics the player can employ while using her will change depending on who her last victim was.

Lastly, her special attack, “Hungry Time” apparently allows her to transform an enemy into a macaroon and temporarily remove them from the fight.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is due out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 26 in the Americas and Europe, and Feb. 1 in Japan.
