There are plenty of great asymmetrical multiplayer games to choose from these days. However, for fans of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball franchise, there can only really be one choice. Dragon Ball: The Breakers pits a team of seven survivors against one of the series’ most iconic villains, with Frieza, Cell, and Majin Bu all being playable raiders at the time of the game’s launch, with more set to follow.
Despite the huge number of villains to have appeared throughout Dragon Ball over the years though, the number of potential villains who could be added to Dragon Ball: The Breakers is actually pretty low. This is due to the game’s unique mechanics, which see raiders transform up to three times during a match, effectively meaning that only Dragon Ball villains with multiple forms would really work as raiders.
Of the many great Dragon Ball villains, few fit the structure of Dragon Ball: The Breakers quite as well as Goku Black. With multiple forms and transformations at his disposal, he’d have no trouble whatsoever conforming to the game’s four-stage formula for raiders, which, sadly, will likely end up ruling out a lot of the franchise’s best antagonists such as the Androids and Broly.
Throughout the course of the “Future” Trunks Saga in Dragon Ball Super, viewers are introduced to Future Zamasu, Goku Black, Fusion Zamasu, and Zamasu’s soul, with each one typically being more terrifying and more powerful than the last. They all have their own unique attacks too, which isn’t always the case with the various forms of Dragon Ball: The Breakers‘ raider lineup at launch.
Though Moro is still to appear in any Dragon Ball media outside of the manga at the time of writing, he’s already made quite an impression on series fans. Capable of holding his own against Goku’s god-like Ultra Instant powers, the planet-eating space goat is incredibly powerful and also has a few distinct transformations hidden up his sleeves for good measure.
Moro starts out looking like a withered old goat man, but gradually transforms into fiercer and fiercer-looking forms, not to mention more powerful. Toward the end of the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, he greatly increases his size as well, which would undoubtedly make for an awesome final form if he were ever to be added as a raider in Dragon Ball: The Breakers.
To say that Dragon Ball GT was a little divisive would perhaps be a bit of an understatement, but that’s not to say that it didn’t still have its moments every now and again. The Shadow Dragon Saga contained many of the best ones, with Omega Shenron and his fellow shadow dragons serving as some of the series’ most interesting villains, not to mention some of its most powerful.
How exactly the transformations would work is difficult to say, but if Spopovich can serve as the first form of Majin Buu, there’s no reason why Omega Shenron couldn’t be preceded by some of the other shadow dragons before eventually absorbing them. The fact that GT isn’t technically considered canon may throw a spanner in the works, but that hasn’t stopped other elements from GT, such as Super Saiyan 4, from appearing in other Dragon Ball games.
Baby may not be the most popular villain out there, nor does he rank among the most memorable non-canon Dragon Ball villains when all’s said and done. He does, however, boast a wide variety of forms and an unfathomable amount of power, making him an ideal candidate to become a raider in one of the future seasons of Dragon Ball: The Breakers.
First unveiled at the beginning of the eponymous Baby Saga, the characters served as one of GT‘s main antagonists and was created using DNA from the Tuffle king. With the ability to infect just about anyone and take control of their body and a vendetta against the Saiyan race, he causes plenty of trouble during the saga and could do so again were he to be added to Dimps’ asymmetrical multiplayer game.
Demon King Piccolo
With Great Ape Vegeta set to be added into Dragon Ball: The Breakers at some point during the weeks and months following the game’s launch, it seems highly likely that Piccolo will eventually join him. After all, the game has so far focused primarily on Dragon Ball Z, and the green Namekian is one of Z‘s most iconic fighters, even if his villainous arc came in the original series.
With King Piccolo boasting both a regular and a Great Namekian form and Piccolo Junior having his recently-revealed Orange Piccolo form in addition to his regular one, the character just about fits the four-stage formula that’s used in the game. He also has a wide array of iconic attacking moves, making him an excellent choice to become a raider in Dragon Ball: The Breakers.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers is available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
