Android 21, a new character designed by series creator Akira Toriyama, is a central figure in Dragon Ball FighterZ’s story mode. She’s a Red Ribbon Army scientist with an intellect similar to Dr. Gero. While she wears a white lab coat and has a human-like appearance in the game’s cutscenes, her playable form sees her with long white hair and pink skin similar to iconic villain Majin Buu.
How to Unlock: Android 21 is unlocked by beating all three story arcs of the game’s story mode.
The Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (SSGSS) is an incredibly powerful form introduced in the movie, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. Goku describes it as occurring when a “Saiyan with the power of a Super Saiyan God further transforms himself into a Super Saiyan.”
How to Unlock: SSGSS Goku is unlocked by earning an A-Rank in the Extreme Gravity Spaceship Course (Hard) in Arcade Mode. This course is initially hidden; to unlock it, you must first beat the normal Extreme Gravity Spaceship Course.
Never content with being second best, Vegeta also achieves the powerful Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form. He inevitably achieves it through Ki control in Dragon Ball Super.
How to Unlock: SSGSS Vegeta is unlocked by earning an A-Rank in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber Course (Hard) in Arcade Mode. This course is initially hidden; to unlock it, you must first beat the normal Hyperbolic Time Chamber Course.
