Formation is an anime-only transformation ability utilized by the Kamikaze Fireballs. In the manga, the Kamikaze Fireballs are always in these forms, not requiring the transformation.

Overview

Upon shouting "Formation!" the Kamikaze Fireball members completely transform their body, becoming far different in appearance from their base states and much more powerful. All of their skin coloration turn teal by this transformation. The transformation is shown to be impractically long, as Android 17 is able to easily interrupt them; they only manage to finish due to Goku's curiosity and Top's sense of fair play and justice. Although, when Universe 2 is about to be erased, the Kamikaze Fireballs managed to transform without taking much time.

Brianne uses this transformation to become Ribrianne in order to take down two people who believe she is too weak to join Team Universe 2, and later when deciding to get serious for the Tournament of Power. During the Tournament of Power, Su uses this transformation to become Rozie, and Sanka uses it to become Kakunsa.

With the power of love from all of the people of Universe 2 who were watching the Tournament of Power, Zirloin, Rabanra, and Zarbuto were able to use Formation - taking on the powers of Ribrianne, Kakunsa, and Rozie respectively.

Super Magical Girl

By gathering the power of love from Heles, Rozie, and Sanka, Ribrianne is able to transform further into Super Ribrianne.

Lovely Love, Love Magical Girl

By gathering the love from most of Team Universe 2, Brianne is able to transform into Lovely Love, Love Ribrianne, which is made out of pure energy. After reverting to Brianne, she utilizes this state to fight Android 18 but is easily defeated.

Video Game Appearances

"Strike a beautiful pose and temporarily boost the power of Strike Skills and Ki Blasts! Hold the button for up to three poses, each increasing the effect! Pull off the final pose to recover your Ki!"
Formation! Super Skill description in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

As part of the Ultra Pack 1 DLC in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Formation! appears as Super Skill for Ribrianne. Additionally the Super Skill can be obtained randomly by the Future Warrior in New Parallel Quest 133: " Ribrianne's Beauty Lesson". Unlike the main series, it is depicted as a Fighting Pose-based Power Up rather than a transformation as Brianne de Chateau is only playable in her Ribrianne form and she only transforms into Super Ribrianne during her Ribrianne's Eternal Love Ultimate Skill. The user can perform up to three poses that boost Strike Skills and Ki Blast Skills, with each pose increasing the effect. Successfully pulling off the final pose will restore the user's Ki by 300 (or 3 Ki Bars) which is the same amount required to perform Ribrianne's Eternal Love.[1]

However the Future Warrior can obtain Ribrianne's Clothes set & Ribrianne's Hood accessory, Rozie's Clothes set & Rozie's Hood & Goggles accessory, and Kakunsa's Clothes set, Kakunsa's Mask accessory, Kakunsa's Tail accessory, & Kakunsa's Set (Mask & Tail all-in-one set) accessory allowing them to wear their costumes as Equipment & Accessories rather than via a magical transformation. Similar to the anime, their clothes and accessories can be wore regardless of gender (with males being able to wear them like Rabanra, Zarbuto, & Zirloin) or race.

Trivia

  • This transformation is a parody of the Magical girl (魔法 少女 mahō shōjo, also known as mahou shoujo or majokko) subgenre of manga and anime which includes series such as Sailor Moon and Cutie Honey. The magical girl transformation is a standard trope of the subgenre, though the version seen in Dragon Ball Super is a parody as most magical girl transformations in anime and manga involve the girls changing into cute, more elegant, or even more revealing costumes, while the Kamikaze Fireballs' transformations do the opposite for humorous effect.
  • The activation of Ribrianne's final form is a parody of the "Miracle Lights" used in various movies of the Pretty Cure franchise, where the heroine gains the power of the audience and the cast to awaken a super-form to defeat a powerful opponent.
