Dragon Ball Heroes (ドラゴンボール ヒーローズ Doragon Bōru Hīrōzu), now known as Super Dragon Ball Heroes (スーパー ドラゴンボール ヒーローズ Sūpā Doragon Bōru Hīrōzu), is a Japanese arcade game developed by Dimps, as the sixth Dragon Ball Z: Data Carddass game. Announced on October 21, 2010, and released on November 11, 2010, the game allows the usage of many characters from the Dragon Ball series, as well as characters new to the series.

The game has ports for Nintendo 3DS called Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 and Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X, a port for Nintendo Switch and Steam called Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission which was the first to be localized for the West, as well as a manga Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission and Dragon Ball Heroes: Charisma Mission.

Dragon Ball Heroes is an extremely popular arcade game, it is the number 1 digital card game in the market, running for over 9 years straight, and has distributed over 700 million cards as of January 2019.[1] It made over 5 billion yen per year starting from 2011, surpassing the total of 40 billion yen. There are more than 3000 individual cards and 1,820,000 players. The 3DS versions of the game, Ultimate Mission 1 and 2, sold over 700k copies in total.[2]

On November 17, 2016, the game received an update. The graphics of the game received a slight enhancement, the number of cards available for a team was increased to 7, and support-type characters such as giant characters who are playable without their base/smaller forms were added to the game. The game was renamed to Super Dragon Ball Heroes, which was also used as the name of the first set of missions released for the updated game. In early Fall of 2018, Super Dragon Ball Heroes introduced a new series, the Universe Mission, which updated the Battle U.I. During the Spring of 2020, Super Dragon Ball Heroes introduced a new series, the Big Bang Mission, as the game was approaching it's 10th anniversary. This update is an upgrade to the game that improves the battle system.

A test run with the arcade machines translated to English was ran during the Dragon Ball North American Tour 2018, but didn't see an English run during the Dragon Ball World Adventure the following year. The arcade machines would later be ported over to Taiwan, China in 2020 in hopes of a playable market there. That same year, the machines had to be divided by borders to practice social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Overview

Happening alongside the Prison Planet Saga, Universal Conflict Saga and Dark King Mechikabura Saga are the end of the Universe Survival Saga, Android 21 Saga and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, as well as a series of "Ages" focusing on a specific character or series.

Card sets

Main article: Dragon Ball Heroes Cards There are general themes for each set of cards. The game offers missions to complete based on the themes from each set. Many of the characters have complete alternate skins determined by the character card used, for example Yamcha can appear with his teenage look or his Majin Buu Saga outfit.

Trailers

Main article: Dragon Ball Heroes/Trailers A series of short trailers featuring new animation have been released to promote the game. Each one offers a very short, roughly one minute, standalone plot with Beat, the main promotional character, featured as a protagonist in these commercials. The Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission! and Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission manga series, adapt these openings into individual chapters without the inclusion of Beat.

Gameplay

How to transform a character

Dragon Ball Heroes uses a turn based card battle system in five rounds or less, which offers 5 on 5 battles with only one health bar for a team of characters. The cards featuring characters from the Dragon Ball franchise are given specific powers and abilities that allow for unique and strategic combat experiences.

The way to fuse

The player has to move the cards on the game board. Depending on the conditions of the match, up to five cards can be placed on the machine's game mat and are then moved on the playing field in an attempt to gain an advantage against the opponent. Characters further back on the field receive less damage than those in the front, but they also deal less damage as well. During both the attack and defense phases of battle, timing meters will appear on the screen and force the player into a mini-game to determine the amount of damage dealt. The goal is to press the button on the machine with precise timing to fill the timing meter gauge more than the opponent in order to gain the advantage in the exchange and perform either an effective attack or defense depending on the phase. Special attacks can only be performed if the advantage is gained during the attack phase. Special team attacks called Ultimate Units can also be performed.

During a battle, the player use cards which allow him to transform, fuse, enhance their special attack, throw a huge energy ball, do a Kamehameha, brainwash the opponent, do a double or triple team attack, aiming at opponent, do a Z attack or summon other characters (even the giants ones), or summon a supportive robot or other avatars to help by either offensive or defensive ways.

Trivia

  • Dragon Ball Heroes has become a notorious game for introducing what-if characters and transformations. Since March 2011 with Future Trunks achieving the Super Saiyan 3 transformation, the game continues throughout the years to explore concepts, bringing new scenarios and stories never seen before.
  • A number of models and animations for the characters of this game are similar to that of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3​​​​​. New models for characters who did not exist in this game are given new models, emulating t​​​​​​hat of Budokai 3's.
    • Big Bang Mission gave a massive overhaul to much of these renders, polishing the edges and giving new animations. 
  • The majority of the player avatars in Dragon Ball Heroes can be made in Dragon Ball Xenoverse, some appearing in promotional artwork and trailers.
  • The illustrations in the cards does not necessarily represent its character, such as Veku's cards depict him with a halo. However, he does not have it in-game.
  • One of Potential Unleashed Gohan's super attack is using the Z sword, however, it is impossible to have that according to the anime since Gohan got his hidden power unleashed by Old Kai but Old Kai is still in the Z sword.
    • However it is possible that the Z Sword was repaired after Old Kai was freed, which would allow him to use it in his Potential Unleashed form.
  • This is the first game of the series of Dragon Ball that has two characters from One Piece, let alone, a third party series. Monkey D. Luffy appears as an ally in one mission but the player cannot control him as he does not have a card. Gild Tesoro appears as a non-playable boss.
  • The game has featured special collaborations with the Xenoverse series, Dragon Ball Fusions, and Dragon Ball FighterZ through the use of characters introduced from those games.
  • Arale Norimaki and Obotchaman are the only characters playable in previous Dragon Ball Z: Data Carddass series games to not be playable in this game. Arale, however, is available as a summon character.
  • In Japan, the card voted Number 1 from every card in existence was Robelu.
  • Aside from Dokkan Battle and technically Ultimate Tenkaichi, the avatars have yet to have a playable role in a Dragon Ball game.
