Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle (ドラゴンボールZ ドッカンバトル Doragon Bōru Zetto Dokkan Batoru) is a free-to-play mobile game by Bandai Namco based on Dragon Ball Z. It is a mix of board and puzzle game with manga-style story dialogue. It has been released for iOS and Android on July 16, 2015.

Story

A mysterious person summons Shenron and wishes to discover who is the strongest person alive of all time.

During an intensive battle between Goku and Vegeta, the dimensional distortion starts, merging different time periods.

Future Trunks and a new Time Patrol are contacted by King Kai, who asks to investigate the dimensional distortion, and warns them that the situation can end in destruction. Their investigation shows they are in May 7 of an unknown age. They decide to enter the World Martial Arts Tournament.

After beating Mr. Satan, he says the World Tournament Announcer wants to discuss something with all of the participants. The announcer says there is a strange rumor about someone going after famous martial arts masters, and ask the participants to be careful.

A Gloomy Parallel World

Future Trunks remembers that something similar happened in the past and concludes that it may be related to the dimensional distortion. They go on and find out that the person who is going after the famous martial arts master is none other than Mercenary Tao. They find and defeat him and he says that he is better a bodyguard than an assassin with the fewer number of hits he is receiving. Future Trunks surmises Tao isn't the mastermind behind the recent attacks. King Kai contacts Future Trunks and informs him that the dimensional distortions have attracted someone with evil ki and gives him the ki signature's location.

Future Trunks' investigation of the ki signature leads him to Raditz who is in the middle of fighting Jewel. Future Trunks stops Raditz from killing Jewel and is shocked to learn he is a Saiyan survivor as Future Trunks is unaware of Raditz's familial relationship with Goku. Likewise Raditzis unaware of Future Trunks' familial relationship to Vegeta though he does note his face seems familiar.

After they defeat Raditz, Raditz realizes they can alter their power levels and notes Future Trunks' high power level while revealing he is searching to recruit Kakarot to join him and his three comrades. Future Trunks recognizes Goku's Saiyan name and realizes he's been targeting Earthlings with high power levels in search of Goku. Despite Future Trunks' high power level, Raditz decides recruiting him is futile given his personality and creates an explosion to flee.

Future Trunks notes during the fight he sensed another evil ki signature and wonders if there are others targeting Earthlings besides Raditz.

The Ultimate Life Form!

Future Trunks is contacted by King Kai who reveals the dimensional distortion is expanding at an even faster rate and fears this evil ki signature belongs to an enemy far more dangerous than Raditz. However, Future Trunks' investigation is sidetracked when he is confronted by the Pilaf Gang. They defeat the Pilaf Machine which explodes surprising a nearby Mr. Satan who recognizes Future Trunks from the tournament and Mr. Satan reveals he is also on the trail of the culprit behind the attacks. Future Trunks tries to convince Mr. Satan to go home but he refuses to listen and rushes off to investigate forcing them to go after him. They eventually encounter a Pirate Robot which Mr. Satan attempts to take on but fails to defeat. They defeat the robot in place of Mr. Satan who wisely decides to listen to Future Trunks when he tells him to leave the culprit to them. Future Trunks notes he feels Goku's ki up ahead which he notes is odd given Goku's pure heart. Eventually, they find Imperfect Cell, confirming Future Trunks' suspicions. Future Trunks reveals his knowledge of Cell's existence to Imperfect Cell and notes he can defeat Cell in his current form though Cell calls his assertion a bluff and attacks under the impression he can kill and absorb Future Trunks. Future Trunks notices Cell has increased his power through absorption and Cell decides Future Trunks is too much on the defensive to be absorbed and creates Cell Juniors to aid him. King Kai, however, tells Future Trunks to focus on taking out the Cell Juniors first ruining Cell's plans forcing Cell to use Solar Flare and flee. Cell escapes planning to absorb Future Trunks' friends to increase his strength.

A Call to Arms

Realizing Cell's plan Future Trunks decides to inform his friends about Cell. Unfortunately in this timeline Tien and Chiaotzu are still students of Master Shen who teams up with Tao to take revenge on Future Trunks. They are defeated but Tien arrives to defend the Crane School's honor. Fortunately, Chiaotzu had been warned earlier about Cell and defends them though Master Shen attacks Chiaotzu for his defiance which causes Tien to reject his master's evil ways. With Master Shen and Tao defeated, as well as their friends having been warned about Cell, Future Trunks returns to investigating the dimensional distortion unaware Frieza plans to invade the planet.

Stage Board/Card Information

Blue tiles give the player items or ki, red tiles indicate opponents or damage hazards, yellow tiles marked with a rainbow question mark deal an effect of ki up, Zeni, item, damage hazards or nimbus travel, purple square tiles indicate a boss battle tile, and other items, such as Dragon Balls, can be collected along the way. Other tiles can allow the player to purchase an item from Baba in exchange for Zeni, travel from one tile to an unconnected tile on the Flying Nimbus. In World Tournament mode, card tiles will reward the player with a card, tiles with a hot bun will heal the player's team health, and tiles with a Budokai Tenkaichi emblem will give the player tournament points (only in the first round). Tiles with a stop sign will be landed on even if the number of advanced tiles exceeds the distance of the stop tile from the player's current tile.

Battle Mode

In battle, the player's current team comes into play. Both their fighter and the opposing fighter(s) will be at opposite ends of the screen. To deliver damage, the user taps the ki spheres on their screen.

The fuller the attacker's ki meter is up to a maximum, the bigger the damage is, with a super attack if it is full. However, if you don't get Ki to a certain amount, the card damage will be lower than the base damage. When neighboring spheres connect, it creates 'burst' damage. Certain cards award damage bonuses based on collecting more ki spheres via their leader ability or normal ability, such as the Resurrection of Frieza Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta and Goku cards, as well as the same series's Golden Frieza card, which grant increased percent damage for same-type ki spheres that match their type as leader. Collecting ki this way grants a percent damage multiplier that exceeds the maximum set in place by the ki meter. Other characters, such as technique type Perfect Cell and Skinny Gotenks grant both percent increased attack and defense per same-type ki sphere collected. Stockpiling these same-type ki spheres fills the Dokkan meter, which can allow a character to perform their super attack in Dokkan Mode, which attacks all enemy targets. Not every character needs to completely fill the Ki meter in order to launch a super attack; however the more ki spheres obtained, the harder these cards will hit with a super attack.

Each card has a Type, which plays an important part in the battles, there are advantageous and disadvantageous types to attack, and taking each type into consideration can help win a match; however, certain cards, such as Super Gogeta, ignore typing on offense and hit everything for super effective damage. If the ki sphere is the same color as a character's type, the Ki is increased x2 for each ki sphere and HP is restored slightly. Once the Ki Meter fills up, it will activate the character's Super Attack. For example, Goku's Kamehameha. Super attacks come in damage tiers, such as "Huge" or "Supreme", with the highest being Mega-Colossal damage for super attacks. The super attack damage goes from left (lowest damage increase) to right (highest damage increase).

Low (130%) < Damage (170%) < Huge/Destructive (200%) < Extreme/Mass (220%) < Supreme/ (250%)< Immense (280%) < Colossal (300%) < Mega-Colossal (350%) < Ultimate (550%)

You are also able to level up super attacks. Leveling the super attack level once will increase the super attack's damage by 10%. All cards (with the exception of non-battle cards, like Old Kai, and Legendary Rare cards) have a maximum super attack level of 10. The higher the level, the greater the boost. All Character rarities are capable of reaching Super Attack Level 10. All Extreme Z-Awakened UR Characters, as well as certain Free-To-Play Characters, can have a maximum Super Attack Level of 15. LR Characters can reach a Super Attack level of 20, where Extreme Z-Awakened LR Characters can reach Super Attack Level 25. To increase this level, the player must train their desired character with an Elder Kai or a duplicate copy of the same card (this guarantees the increase in Super Attack Level). The player can also use a Grand Kai for a 100% Chance to increase the level, however, the Card must be the same type as the Grand Kai or it will fail (An STR-Type Grand Kai will raise the Super Attack Level of any Strength Type Character at a 100% chance of success, however using the STR-Type Grand Kai on a character of any other type will always fail). For other methods with lower success, the player can awaken a character of the same name and feed it in for a chance to raise it (If you have a UR Super Saiyan Goku, you can use any Super Saiyan Goku card of lower or higher rarity to try and increase this level. The chance decreases the lower the rarity of the partner but increases the higher the rarity. Using a card of a higher rarity than the one you're trying to raise usually guarantees success), or an Elder Kai (Dozing) which has a 30% chance to level up any character's Super Attack Level. 

Card Information

Cards come in different "rarities", where, usually, the Rarer the card, the stronger the character is and the higher level he gets. Several rarities also increase the Super Attack level a card can have. Mainly the special Super Strike cards, Legendary Rare cards and both Extreme Z-Awakened rarities.

Rarity
Low to High
Max Lv Max Super
Attack Lv

Normal 20 10 N rarity
Rare 40 10 R rarity

Super Super Rare 80 10 SSR rarity
Super Super Rare (Super Strike cards only) 80 15
Ultra Rare 100 10 UR rarity
Transcended Ultra Rare 120 10
Extreme Z-Awakened Ultra Rare 140 15
Legendary Rare 150 20 LR rarity
Extreme Z-Awakened Legendary Rare 150 25


Most cards have a special skill called Link Skill. Link Skills work when two related characters (like Goku and Gohan) are used in the same team and their turn follows each other in line. Links Skills also have names. Link skills give an extra boost for Ki, HP, Defense, or Attack. like the Link Skill, Shocking Speed, which gives +2 Ki to both characters. Most cards have Leader Skills which, if the card is placed as the team leader, will give a boost such as increase stats or Ki. All cards have various Leader Skills which is either useful or pointless. Separate cards may have the same leader skill.

  • Link Skills now have a leveling system. The higher the level the higher the boost gained. Max level is 10. Shocking Speed for example starts at Ki +2 at level 1 and becaoms Ki +2 and DEF +5% at level 10.

The player has one shared HP bar which is the sum of characters' hit points. If it goes to zero, the player loses and is given a chance to revive himself with full HP using 1 Dragon Stone, with the exception of certain events, such as Surpassing All (and a few other Dokkan Events), Challenge Events, World Tournaments, Prime Battle Events, Virtual Clash and Extreme Z-Battle Events.

At the end of a stage, the player fights a Boss Battle with the boss character of the stage. Defeating this character allows the player to pass the stage and earn various prizes, such as that character's card. While Quest mode delivers an original story-line, players can still go through the franchise's classic story through Events held daily. Every stage requires stamina, which recharges over time.

Each account has a level named Rank. Every time it levels up, more the player's Team Cost Limit, Friend Limit, etc. increases.

More Card Information

There are three ways to improve characters: Battling, Training, and Awakening.

Battling enemies lets the team gain Experience, which they level up and become stronger. Training basically combines characters permanently, with one getting EXP by battling another one who leaves the team. A small bonus is given for training similar types. Awakening is a permanent power-up that uses a special class of item called "Awakening Medals". When the character is fully leveled up it can be used Z-Awakening. Z-Awakening a character greatly powers up a character permanently and increases the card "rarity" by one level. This gives them a shiny background and a higher level cap but it can only be done once. It also boosts the type from normal to Super or Extreme Type (Super Type is for Heroes like Goku while Extreme Types are for villains like Frieza), which becomes stronger against all non-Super/Extreme types. Two Super/Extreme types act the same as normal ones.

Every card has a type, each type with its own advantages and disadvantages to the other types (similarly to Pokémon). The 5 types are AGL (Agility), STR (Strength), PHY (Physical), TEQ (Technique), and INT (Intelligence). Each type is represented by its own color in-game, AGL is Blue, STR is Red, PHY is Orange, TEQ is Green and INT is Purple. The types come into effect in battle. If a card has the advantage over the over, it will deal Super Effective damage, meanwhile, if a character has a disadvantage to the card they are attacking, they will deal not very effective damage, and their attack will be blocked. Two cards to date, has the ability to hit all types with super effective damage (STR and INT Super Gogeta), meanwhile some cards are able to take not very effective damage from all types (INT and STR Super Janemba)

Type Chart (-> Means strong against, <- means weak against)

AGL -> STR, but AGL <- TEQ

STR -> PHY, but STR <- AGL

PHY -> INT, but PHY <- STR

INT -> TEQ, but INT <- PHY

TEQ -> AGL, but TEQ <- INT

Some cards are also classed into sub-tiers called Categories. Each Category contains characters that usually have something in common (such as the "Fusion" Category) or from the same saga (such as the "Majin Buu Saga" Category). Categories don't offer the same benefits as Link Skills, however, on certain stages, a category may give a bonus to drop rates of in-game items, and may even give a different item entirely as the bonus drop. Some characters offer benefits to characters within their category through their leader skills.

Extreme Z-Awakening is a newer mechanic introduced to allow older, outdated, characters to be viable in the newer metas. These awakenings increase the card's stats, level, and super attack level cap, while also giving them access to a more modern Leader and Passive skills to allow them to once more be usable. However, each new ability is unlocked as the player awakens said card (With one ability being added at a time, with a total of 9 steps to complete). To obtain the materials for Extreme Z-Awakening, the player must defeat said characters Extreme Z-Awakening stage 30 times (Each level gets increasingly difficult, increasing the boss's damage, health, defense, and well as giving them immunity to status inflictions). At stage 20, it's highly recommended the player uses the category that has the advantage over the event, making it much easier to complete the Awakenings (It is possible to defeat up to stage 30 using the Mono-Type team that has an advantage over the event). The max level in these events is 999, however, playing stage 31 onwards only awards the player with items that are sold to obtain Zeni.

Another way to power up cards is to utilize the potential system. The Potential System offers various bonuses to cards under certain stipulations. Firstly, only cards whose rarity is UR or higher may use the potential system. Secondly, in order to fully utilize the entire Potential System, the player must consume 4 duplicate copies of the same card. Third, the card in question must also be at SA Level 10 (or Higher) to fully activate it. And finally, the player must have a sufficient number of Potential Orbs (Currency to use it) to fully activate.

Somethings to note about Potential Orbs there are 5 basic varieties, 1 color corresponds to each type (Red Orbs for STR Types, Green Orbs for TEQ types, Purple Orbs for INT types, Orange Orbs for PHY types and Blue Orbs for AGL types). Each color also has 3 sizes, Small (S), Medium (M), and Large (L). Small orbs are the easiest to obtain and so they are the most consumed, whereas the Large Orbs are the hardest to obtain but are also consumed less. There is a 6th Variety that is clear colored, and come in the 3 sizes, however, these are locked to specific characters, all of which are available in-game. Obtaining the colored orbs are simple, there is a daily stage that rotates to allow the player to collect a specific color once that day (on the weekends all stages are open). They are also commonly given out in bulk as login bonuses as well as mission rewards. 

The potential system is comprised of nodes, touching each node will consume potential orbs, but also add additional effects to the cards. A heart shape node increases the card's HP stat, a fist shape node increases the Attack stat and the Saiyan Armor nodes increase the defense stat. The distribution of nodes depends on the character's type, with favoring one stat more than the others. All characters, fully powered up from the system will receive +5400 to one stat, +5000 to another, and +4600 to the third (Except for INT types who receive +5000 to all stats). This principle also applies to the characters acquired in-game, but they receive a lower max stat increase. 

Certain tiles are square-shaped, and they instead offer different abilities that aren't stat based. A tile with multiple fists grants the character a chance to perform an additional normal/super attack, a tile with a punch grants the character a chance to perform a critical hit, and a tile with a man sprinting grants a chance for the character to dodge an incoming attack. Other tiles include one of Goku powering up, which increases the damage of super-effective hits (This ability doesn't increase damage done by characters who have super effective on the passive but will increase damage done to the type they normally would have it over [STR Gogeta who has Super Effective against all types will only get the bonus damage from this skill on PHY types, not every type]). One where Goku is blocking decreases damage received from not very effective hits (This ability doesn't decrease damage received by characters who always receive not very effective damage from their passive, but will decrease damage received from to the type they normally would have it over [INT Janemba who receives Not Very Effective damage from all types will only get the bonus reduction from this skill on TEQ types, not every type]). Another skill that looks like a Ki-Blast Attack increases damage done by super attacks, and a tile that looks like Goku's face will heal additional health from same type ki spheres (This ability doesn't increase health recovery from characters who heal based on how many Ki spheres obtained from their passive ability, but will increase health recovery from the type they normally would have healed from [INT Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed) who recovers health based on how many orbs he obtains of any color, will only receive additional HP recovery from this skill from INT orbs, not every orb.])

Each skill has a level, with Dodge, Critical and Additional Attacks having the ability to be Level 20, with the higher the level the greater the chance of activating one of these abilities (Additional and Critical get +2% chance per level, whereas Dodge only gets +1% per level). These abilties do not stack with the effect from a Passive (PHY LR Trunks receives a 50% critical chance from his passive and can have an additional chance of +30% from the potential system. However, the game rolls the 50% chance and then his extra 30% chance separately, and doesn't combine it to an overal 80% chance to activate a critical hit). The higher the level of the abilities simply increase their strength, and are always active once given.

April Fools

Saibai Battle
On April Fools of 2017 Dragon Ball Z: Saibai Battle was shown as a joke. The game was said to be about growing and training Saibamen to have them battle other Saibamen. A commemorative card featuring these Sabiaman was released alongside this, and are playable though they are a gag card, having very low stats as well as a comical super attack animation, each one using an attack from either Goku, Gohan, Future Trunks and Vegeta, with them all self-destructing at the end.
Screenshot 20180401-233232
For April Fools 2018, Dragon Ball Z: Dolly Battle was shown. The game was supposed to be a Dating Simulator, where the player could date various female characters from across all of Dragon Ball. A special commemorative card featuring all the females was given out to all players as compensation, though they aren't actually playable.

For April Fools 2019, a new "Retro Mode" was showcased. It promised old school music, graphics and artwork. Despite never actually being added, a retro theme stage was added and playable. The player would be treated to Retro Graphics and Music. From said event, a playable Goku and Vegeta are obtainable and feature heavily pixelated artworks and in-game character animations

For April Fools 2020, the developers announced a new Mode titled Dokkan Battle: Race. In this mode, various characters with various vehicles, from Kid Goku and Nimbus, Frieza, and his Pod Chair, and even Master Roshi and Turtle would participate in the mode. Each Character and vehicle were to have different stats including "Acceleration", "Speed", "Handling" and some likely gag ones including "Age". Alongside this, a "live" broadcast was put into the news detailing the race with comical events happening such as Frieza leaving to collect the Dragon Balls and Vegeta being disqualified for crashing his Saiyan Pod into Yamcha. Bulma (Youth) won the race and was released as a playable character alongside this.

Trivia

  • This is the first game to feature Launch, Bacterian, King Chappa, Pasta, Jewel, Killa, Pintar, Hero (Possessed), Yakon, a Majin Soldier, a Red Ribbon Army Solider, Cymbal, Fangs the Vampire and Master Mutaito as playable characters. It is also the first to have Goku with angel wings as a playable character.
    • Additionally Vegeta (Angel), Frieza (Angel), King Cold (Angel), and Cell (Angel) are playable.
  • Those who aren't capable of flying use a jetpack similar to the one commonly used by Hercule in his game appearances, with the exceptions of Goku (Kid), who uses his Flying Nimbus while Gurumes Army members Pasta and Bongo use Flying Discs.
    • Additionally, Frieza can also fight from his Hover Pod making it the first game where Frieza can do so.
    • In addition to Goku, Pure at Heart Chi-Chi (Youth) also uses the Flying Nimbus instead of the Jetpack she normally uses. To an Exciting Future Goku (Youth) & Arale Norimaki use the Flying Nimbus to fly along with the Gatchans.
    • Interestingly, Vampa Beetle use Flight when fought as a boss in Dokkan Battle.
  • Interestingly Staff Officer Black fights without his Battle Jacket which is not playable nor does it appear as a non-playable enemy. As a result, he uses a jetpack to fly like other Red Ribbon Army characters such as Red Ribbon Soldiers, Murasaki, and General Blue.
  • Originally, Gohan (Kid)'s "Resistance of Tyranny" card had the Super Attack quote as "I'm going to mess you up!" Starting with version 1.2.1, this quote was changed to "I'm going to- beat you up!", presumably due to the violent nature of the wording.
  • Earlier versions of the game allowed for a Skill-Linked Frieza and Zarbon to take drastically reduced damage.
  • Upon his release, Dr. Lychee sold for more than 10,000 Baba Points, instead of his intended 500.
  • The Ox King item had one of the longest unpatched bugs, reducing damage by 75% instead of by 25%.
  • The Item Card Elder Kai was usable as a playable card upon initial release (at the cost of 99 team points); however, due to this card not having any abilities, attacks, or animations, the game would crash when he would come into play. Since the game saves during active battles, this would cause the game to load a crash until the player forfeits the match, losing stamina.
  • Pikkon and Hit have the "Strongest Duo on Earth" link skill, despite Pikkon never having set foot on Earth. (As of the 3.0.1 update, this links' name has been changed to "Experienced Fighter" making them more fitting of the link. This is due to a mistranslation of said link).
  • A certain Super Saiyan Vegeta card sells for 1000 Baba Points instead of the regular 500 Baba Points for Super Rares.
  • There is a rumor in the community about the Japanese Version of Dokkan having rigged character pools per player. With certain players having a 0% chance to get a certain card.
    • This is due to, what the developers say was a graphical glitch, players seeing the actual pull rates for certain cards when checking the card list of a banner, with certain more sought after cards being shown to have a 0% pull rate regardless of the number of dragon stones spent. It is unknown if this truly was a graphical or if they accidentally revealed they do rig the summon pools. Regardless, all players of the Japanese Version were compensated 300 Dragon Stones for this, supposedly due to the Japanese Government threatening the development team for it.
    • This scandal has become a popular joke among the Global Version's Playerbase, as they constantly reply to anything posted by the official social media, referencing this event, by asking something along the lines of "When is Global gonna get the 300 Stones?", or asking for 300 Dragon Stones for any maintenance compensation, despite this happening a few years ago.
  • The Global version differs heavily from the Japanese version as they do not have characters from Dragon Ball Heroes available to draw (the cards are in the database, but remain untranslated). It is assumed that it is because the game is not available elsewhere and another company runs the game. To compensate, the Global version had included two special events, one based on the Other World Tournament and another based on the Dragon Ball Super version of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, specifically the first few episodes involving Vegeta and Beerus. Namely the scenes where Bulma was slapped by Beerus and Vegeta attacking him because of this.
    • This was later proven false, as these events were later added to the Japanese version while the Dragon Ball Heroes characters remain exclusive to the Japanese version.
      • Despite the cards being moved over to the Japanese version, due to the cards being almost a year old, they were changed for the Japanese release, giving each version the same character, but with different abilities between the versions, with Japanese having the superior abilities.
    • As of August 12th, 2019 all Dragon Ball Heroes characters released on the Global version under the Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission crossover event.
    • As of November 9th, 2019 the final two Global Exclusive Cards have made their way over to the Japanese version, leaving no truly exclusive cards on either version (save for a few unreleased content not yet brought over to the Global version).
  • Dokkan Battle was mentioned by the boy who been reincarnated into Yamcha and Oushou in Dragon Ball: That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha. The reincarnated Yamcha participated in the game and Oushou is a player of the game.
  • Some characters that would fit in certain categories (ex: Vegito and Gogeta cards should be in the Pure Saiyans category, as both fusees are Pure-Blooded Saiyans, thus making Vegito and Gogeta Pure Saiyans), are lefts out due to unknown reasons, other than the likely reason that the development team doesn't want certain categories to be drastically more powerful than others due to some categories having better character pools than others.
    • As of the Data Download on August 28th 2020, all cards that are named "Goku & Vegeta" that fuse into either Vegito or Gogeta via their passive skill or active skill have been added to the Pure Saiyans Category. However, standalone Gogeta and Vegito cards are still excluded from the category
  • The random names you are allowed to choose during the tutorial are all names of the playable character avatars from Dragon Ball Heroes, such as Note, Kagyu, Tsumuri, Basaku, Nim, Froze, etc.
  • During the 200 million downloads celebration, both the Global and Japan versions released Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta and a new version of Omega Shenron as one of the first category leaders in the game. However, because the units in Global server were added before the introduction to categories, they were infamously released without their leader skill with it saying "To Be Released", causing massive backlash from the Global players for releasing a hastily rushed and unfinished product. It has since been patched months later when Global received the category update.
  • There have been several cases where the Global version of Dokkan has received Dokkan Fest characters before the Japanese side.
    • TEQ Hit was first released on Global for 2018 Christmas before being released on JP server 4 months later
    • LR Gohan and Goten that were based on the Family Kamehameha moment were first released on Global server for the 2019 Goku day celebration before being released two months later for JP's Tanabata celebration.
    • STR SSGSS Kaioken Goku was first released on Global for 2019 Christmas before being released on JP server 4 months later, on the exact same date as Hit's release a year ago.
    • LR STR UI Goku was first released on Global on Part 2 of the 2020 Goku Day celebration before being released on JP server 3 weeks later.
    • Both the Extreme Z-Awakenings for the PHY Type Vegito Blue and the AGL Type Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black were first released on Global before JP received the EZA a few months later.
  • Unlike other Active Skills that are voiced, Broly's Active isn't voiced for unknown reasons. Either it has to do with his voice actor's removal from Funimation or it's simply a bug as his Japanese version isn't voiced either.
    • This Broly's active skill has since been given a voice on the Japenese version but remains unvoiced on the Global version. 
  • Ahms is the only playable character in the game to not have a Super Attack quote.
  • The two cards released for April Fools 2019 feature entirely classic sprite work, in-game battle animations and heavily pixelated art. This is likely an inside joke from the developers since fans are constantly demanding higher quality character animations and artwork.
  • After an update once, some players had found a then-unreleased Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta and/or Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta (GT) in their character box, fully leveled up and max SA level. They were completely functional cards and could be used on teams. The developers had soon found out and removed the cards from the accounts that had gotten those two Vegetas for free. As of now, these are the only known cases of the development team confiscating characters a player owns.
  • The Physical Type "Dark Menace" Goku Black card has slightly higher stats as well as a slightly altered passive on the Global version compared to the Japanese version. The reason for this is unknown but is likely to ensure people summoned for him upon his release.
    • These alterations were kept upon this Goku Black receiving his Extreme Z-Awakening on the Global version.
  • There is an R Goku card that Dokkan Awakens into an Angel Goku card then to a Super Saiyan on the Global version, however on the Japanese version the Angel Goku is a standalone card, and the R Goku Dokkan Awakens directly into a Super Saiyan Goku.
    • The R Goku is a TEQ type, meanwhile, the SR Angel Goku is an AGL type, This is the only case of a card changing type upon Dokkan Awakenings.
      • The Angel Goku then proceeds to Dokkan back to TEQ type, and then remains TEQ through the rest of his awakenings.
    • The Global version's Goku has slightly higher stats due to his extra awakening, as well as the Super Saiyan Goku being a base level SSR, when on the Japanese Version the same Super Saiyan Goku is a base SR.
    • The R Goku's awakening path on the Global version is the longest out of any character, totaling 4 Dokkan Awakens, as well as awakening from a Rare through a Transcended Ultra Rare.
      • His path is: Goku (Base) -> Goku (Angel) -> Goku (Super Saiyan) -> Goku (Super Saiyan)(Angel) -> Goku (Super Saiyan 3)(Angel).
  • There's an Agility-Type Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku that appears to be Kaioken but the game doesn't refer to him as such. This card, in particular, has its sprite, super attack, and link set all including the Kaioken, however the game only refers to him as "Super Saiyan God SS Goku".
    • The reasoning as to why he is so inclusive of Kaioken despite not being referred to its use in-game is unknown.
    • A second Strength-Type Kaioken Blue Goku based on his appearance in the Tournament of Power, does include Kaioken in his name, referring to him as "Super Saiyan God SS Goku (Kaioken)".
  • The Intelligence-Type Ultra Instinct Goku -Sign- and Strength-Type Jiren are the only two Dokkan Festival Exclusive cards that released without their Dokkan Awakenings, with each receiving their Dokkan Awakening at later dates.
    • The Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku received his Dokkan Awakening when Jiren was initially released.
    • Jiren received his Dokkan Awakening when Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta (Evolved) released.
  • There have been 4 cases of characters releasing to coincide with the Dragon Ball Super Anime.
    • The Intelligence-Type Ultra Instinct Goku -Sign- was announced on Twitter immediately after the initial Japanese airing of Dragon Ball Super Episode 110.
      • His Dokkan Awakening along with the Strength-Type Jiren card was announced and released immediately after the initial Japanese airing of Dragon Ball Super Episode 130.
    • The Physical-Type Vegito Blue and Agility-Type Rosé Goku Black were announced after the initial Japanese airing of Dragon Ball Super Episode 66, and released the next day.
    • The Physical-Type Kefla card was released a few hours after the intial Japanese airing of Dragon Ball Super Episode 115.
  • The Story Event based upon Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks features a prologue level that depicts Future Goku's confrontation with Future Frieza and Future King Cold. As Future Trunks suspected, Future Goku arrives in time to save his friends thanks to Instant Transmission. It also provides an explanation why Future Bulma didn't tell Future Trunks about Instant Transmission as only Future Vegeta, Future Piccolo, Future Gohan, and Future Krillin approached King Cold's Spaceship from the ground implying she stayed with Future Tien, Future Chiaotzu, and Future Yamcha if she went to see Frieza like her main timeline counterpart did thus was not present when Goku explained Instant Transmission as he does so to Vegeta, Piccolo, Gohan, and Krillin before facing and killing both Future Frieza and his father.
    • However, the Story Event contradicts the Extra Edition 1 chapter of Dragon Ball Super as it shows Future Piccolo knocked Future Gohan out after training to protect him, much like how Future Gohan would do with Future Trunks years later. Future Piccolo left Future Gohan behind and died fighting the Androids. This contradicts the special manga chapter which reveals that Future Gohan left his friends to join Future Bulma in finding the Dragon Balls before Piccolo was killed, only to learn the Pilaf Gang got to them first and made a wish that turned them back into infants.
    • This story event reveals when Future Vegeta chose to confront the Androids. Future Gohan requested that he help Vegeta, however Vegeta instead told him to "go help that woman" (referring to Bulma), and only engaged them after Future Gohan agreed to go bring Future Bulma and Future Trunks to safety.
  • During the Story Event: "New Enemies! Androids in Action", Future Trunks refers to Android 19 and Android 20 as the Androids that wreaked havoc in his timeline when warning Goku. This error originates from the original manga as Akira Toriyama originally intended for them to be the Androids that Future Trunks spoke of only developing Android 17 and Android 18 later on.
  • In an older version of the game, there was a glitch that enabled Yamcha to use Super Gogeta's Soul Punisher.
  • The Intelligence-Type LR Super Saiyan God Goku is the only character who has a leader skill for a category he isn't actually part of.
  • The Zamasu based on when he uses the Super Dragon Balls to obtain Goku's body counts as a transformation of Zamasu, referring to him in the game as "Zamasu (Goku)".
  • Upon their release, the Agility-Type LR Caulifla (Super Saiyan 2) & Kale (Super Saiyan 2) were reaching levels of damage far beyond their intended levels. This was due to the way their passive functioned. Before it was patched they gave themselves additional Ki upon launching their attacks, coupled with their built-in additional attacks which caused their damage to be calculated erroneously, instead calculating them at much higher modifiers then any other card in the game.
    • It calculated their 12-17 Ki Super Attack at the strength of Ultra Super Attacks (Between 18-24 Ki damage multipliers).
      • Utilizing their guaranteed additional Super Attacks and +1 Ki when attacking caused the game to allow them to use these higher multipliers for these weaker attacks.
      • Even for other LR cards, an additional Super Attack always defaults to their weakest 12 Ki Super Attack. However, they were the only card to ever break this rule.
    • It calculated their 24-Ki Ultra Super Attack at a 30-Ki damage multiplier (which is impossible because the maximum amount of Ki a character can have is 24).
    • Had it not been patched out with the LR Kale & Caulifla, The Technique Type LR Super Saiyan Gohan & Super Saiyan Goten would've likely benefited greatly from these calculations error, as the two cards have very similar abilities.
  • Cumber in his Evil Saiyan form, is counted as a different character from all other Cumber cards, simply being named "Evil Saiyan" in-game.
    • This allows for him to be ran with other Cunber cards.
  • The AGL GT SR Vegeta as well as the SSR farmable STR version of Present Zamasu (that also Dokkan awakens to Zamasu (Goku) are the only characters in the game to change class upon Dokkan awakening both changing from Super to Extreme. The former awakens to Baby Vegeta while the latter is done to demonstrate Zamasu's fall to evil.
  • Three of the Summonable SR Base Form Vegeta cards (excluding Vegeta (GT)) are the only Super-Class characters to the the "Big Bad Bosses" Link, which aside from them, is a link exclusive to Extreme-Class characters
  • The "Movie Bosses" Category and its counterpart "Movie Heroes" have some notable differences. Aside from the obvious selection of Class Difference, Movie Heroes includes all "heroes" from any Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z or Super Movie, regardless of their importance to the plot, meanwhile, Movie Bosses ONLY includes the main antagonist of the film (Turles, the Main Antagonist of Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, but all the members of the Turles Crusher Corps are excluded). 
    • The Agility-Type Tapion is the only character to be on both Movie Heroes and Movie Villians, as he transforms into Hirudegarn for a few turns.
      • As a result of Hirudegarn also is on both Categories as he shares the same ones as Tapion
  • The Dokkan Festival Exclusive Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta and the Agility Type Tapion are the only two characters who change class mid-battle.
    • The Vegeta transforms into Majin Vegeta Mid-battle, it hurts his synergy because his Link Set changes to one that makes it harder to link since, aside from other Majin Vegeta cards, most change to links easier to use on Extreme-Class Teams (One of the teams he leads for is entirely Super Class, aside from him and other Majin Vegeta Cards).
      • Vice-Versa, this same Vegeta also struggles on the other main team he leads for as it's primarily (though not enitrely) Extreme-Class, causing him to struggle more Pre-Transformation.
    • The Tapion only stays Extreme-Class for up to 3 turns while he's transformed into Hirudegarn, but unlike with Vegeta, his transformation only benefits/hurts him depending on whether he's being used on a Super/Extreme Class Team (As he switches mid-battle if you want to depend on Hirudegarn on an Extreme Class team, Tapion will struggle more, however on a Super Class Team Hirudegarn will struggle more).
      • This issue is non-existent on category teams as Tapion & Hirudegarn share every category together.
  • Vegito Blue and Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black are the only Dual Dokkan Festival units that aren't counterparts in the anime (Vegito's counterpart Fusion Zamasu is instead treated as Future Trunks' counterpart).
  • The first Cooler card released on the Global version used the name "Cooler", however when the PHY Type Dokkan Festival Exclusive Cooler released they changed his, along with all variants, name to "Coora". When the Golden Cooler card released, all "Coora" cards names were changed back to "Cooler".
  • The Character Gokua, originally released under the name "Kogu" on the Global Version.
  • At some point on the Global Version, the spelling of all Bojack cards were changed to "Boujack".
  • Future Trunks has the most discrepencies of a name for the same character.
    • Trunks' from Dragon Ball Super are all titled "Trunks (Future) (Teen)" despite being an adult. They share this title from the Future Trunks card based on the scene where he says his farewells at the end of the Cell Saga
    • Super Saiyan Trunks characters from Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super are all named "Super Saiyan Trunks (Future)" 
      • All Super Saiyan Rage Trunks cards are simply titled "Super Saiyan Trunks" despite the sprites clearly reflecting his Rage Transformation
      • This is true for all except for Super Saiyan Trunks from his fight with Frieza and King Cold, whose titled "Super Saiyan Trunks (Teen)"
    • Many base form Future Trunks cards are labelled simply as "Trunks (Teen)", which implies he's the grown version of Trunks from the main timeline, which can't be the case since they are part of the Future Saga Category, implying he is the Trunks that arrived from the Future
  • Super Saiyan 2 Trunks (Teen) isn't apart of the Future Saga categories despite Trunks using Super Saiyan 2 in Dragon Ball Super
    • This is likely due to the fact that when he was released, The Future Trunks Saga of Dragon Ball Super had not yet been announced, and is based of his Dragon Ball Z appearence, therfore making him Super Saiyan 2 Trunks from the Cell Saga, which never actually occured in the Manga or Anime.
      • It can be said the development team may have teased Trunks' return in Dragon Ball Super as they needed the "Ok" from the owners of the rights of the Dragon Ball franchise to develop and release the card, and at the time the game didn't do crossover events as this Trunks isn't from Dragon Ball Heroes either. 
  • LR Pan (Honey) is the only LR avaliable in-game without summoning that doesn't recieve the premium Potential System buffs. This is likely due to her not originally being concieved to be an LR Character, her SSR and UR card released during the 2nd Anniversary as a free SSR players could obtain, however she obtained an Dokkan Awakening into an LR 2 years later in during the 4th Anniversary to fit its theme of Dragon Ball GT. To compensate for her "Free-to-Play" Potential System buffs, her base stats recieve a massive boost when dokkan awakening her from TUR to LR, in particular her HP stat.
    • She is also the only character not originally intended to be an LR character to recieve an Dokkan Awakening into an LR
  • The Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta & PHY Omega Shenron cards were the only characters on either version to be released without their leader skill. Their leader skills were listed as "To Be Released" on the Global Version of the game for roughly half a year before they were updated to have one. This is due to the developers not wanting the Global Version to start the stronger Category Leader Meta one month after the 2nd Anniversary introduced the first 2 cards of the 120% Mono-Type Leader meta.
  • When the Global Version released the STR Super Gogeta and INT Janemba Dual Dokkan Fest Banners for its First Anniversary, the SSR Summon rate had instantly dropped from roughly 6.5% to around 2%; and remained that way on the Global Version for a few months until all banners recieved a then standardized SSR Summon Rate of 7%
  • Metal Cooler is the only character the player can legitemately run a full team of as well as having them all link. There are 5 Metal Cooler cards who are droppable cards avaliable for all players; each one having their typing included into their name (Ex: Metal Cooler [PHY]), which makes the game count them as seperate characters despite their only differences being leader skills, passive skills and Super Attack effect. Each card shares the exact same artwork, only differing in background color to match their typing
  • Characters who transform into another mid battle can link with other characters of the same name and differing titles, but not themselves. For Example, "Pinnacle of Fury" Goku can transform into Super Saiyan Goku during battle. If he does transform, this Super Saiyan Goku is able to link with other Super Saiyan Goku cards that have a different title, such as "Father's Pride" Super Saiyan Goku; however two "Pinnacle of Fury" Goku cards who are both transformed into Super Saiyan cannot link with eachother
    • Using mid-battle transformations is the only way to get two characters of the same name to link together and legitemately be playable on the same team (Excluding Dokkan Virtual Ultimate Clash, which allows characters of the same name to be all used together [Ex: A Full team of Super Saiyan Goku cards], however they still won't link)
  • It is possible to legitemately have two characters of the same name on the same team, or two or more copies of the exact same card, however the player will not be able to access events due to a "Team Composition Error". In order to do this, the player must Dokkan Awaken or Reverse Dokkan Awaken a character that transforms during awakening. Ex: "Matured Power" Gohan (Teen) becomes "Strike of Destiny" Super Saiyan Gohan (Teen) after he Dokkan Awakens. Due to the differing names, they are usuable on the same team. If the Player then either Dokkan Awakens "Matured Power" Gohan (Teen), or Reverse Dokkan Awakens "Strike of Destiny" Super Saiyan Gohan (Teen), the player will have two of the same character on a team, which otherwise is impossible (Excluding Dokkan Virtual Ultimate Clash). 
  • Most official Dragon Ball Media seperates the Broly that appeared inDragon Ball Z: Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan, Dragon Ball Z: Broly the Second Coming from the one who appeared in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, by naming the one from Super "Broly: BR" however Dokkan Battle does not make this distinction with their names.
