Starting with Basic Moves, you will be able to enjoy the original Dragon Ball Z skills in real life. They are broken down into 3 parts, which include some famous special attacks.

Martial Art Moves

Goku vs Raditz

These are simple attack moves to defeat your foe without using too much of your energy while in battle.

Ki Blast Moves

Ki Blast

Ki Blast moves use more energy than your simple attack moves, but they will deal more damage to your foe.

Special Attacks


We cannot forget about special attacks such as the famous Kamehameha. Special Attacks do use a lot of your energy, so watch carefully where you can step away to recharge your energy.

Don't be satisfied with just the Basic Moves. There are other "techniques" in winning a battle.



While fighting, try lowering your foe's stun gauge so they will not be able to move for a certain period of time. Also if you use your special attack during this time, a special attack animation will be played while using this move.



Surge during battle will allow you to power up. This will activate and allow you to use the special attack move consecutively.

Support Skill


If you are in battle with a support member, you will be able to use the Special Support Move that each character has to offer.

Z Combination

Goku and Piccolo

After using the support skill several times, it will load up your gauge. Once this gauge is filled, you will be able to use the Z Combination to deal great damage to your enemies.
