Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (2024)

Players who love Dragon Ball Z can finally create their dream teams in Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle, an action game that combines the elements of color-matching titles with the intensity of fighting games. More importantly, this Dragon Ball Z title lets players mix and match characters of their choosing to create powerful teams, allowing them to have Goku team up with villains like Majin Buu and even Frieza in groupings the series would likely never pull off.

However, given the option to purchase packs that provide immensely powerful characters, it’s likely a question for some players to wonder if there’s even a way to make a decent-enough team with only free-to-play characters. Thankfully, the game does offer ways to create F2P Teams that can actively compete with some of the meta teams in the title. However, just which teams have the means to pull it off?

Updated on March 15, 2023, by Rhenn Taguiam: With the Dragon Ball franchise announcing that an upcoming Budokai Tenkaichi 4 fighting game is in the works, fans of the acclaimed series might be interested in reliving some of the best Dragon Ball moments in Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle. With the game focusing more on being a puzzle fighter than a straightforward battle game, there’s a specific demand for players to be more tactically-inclined than other Dragon Ball titles. And for those who want to make great teams without spending a dime, perhaps they can look at teams already existing in the anime, including Master Roshi’s students, the Frieza Force’s most elite, the friends of Goku’s dad, various iterations of Cooler, and even pure-blooded Saiyans.

12 Bardock’s Squad

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (1)

Before Goku had his Z-Warriors to help him save the Earth from various threats, his father Bardock actually had his own team to accomplish missions. Called Team Bardock, this team was Bardock’s own mercenary troupe that always accompanied him in the toughest of tasks, and proved to be one of the most formidable companies prior to Planet Vegeta’s Destruction.

Key to the Dragon Ball game build is Grand Opening Team Bardock (Leader) which has a Ki + 3 Leader Skill that also gives 120% ATK and DEF buff to tag-sharers. This is a significant boost for the likes of team members with innate ATK and DEF boosts based on various combat situations (Bardock, Fasha, Borgos, Shugesh), and when aided by team support Saiyan Alliance Tora whose Passive can bring in steady buffs for the team.

  • 1A: Grand Opening Team Bardock
  • 1B: Dazzling Life Force Bardock
  • 2A: Planetary Invasion Scene Fasha
  • 2B: Saiyan Alliance Tora
  • Floater 1: Infinite Power Borgos
  • Floater 2: Ruffian’s Strike Shugesh

11 Pure Saiyans

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (2)

During the destruction of Planet Vegeta in the main Dragon Ball timeline, it’s only Goku, Vegeta, and Broly who are left behind as the universe’s remaining pure-blooded Saiyans, leaving the legacy of the Saiyan Race in their hands. In the gameplay of the Dragon Ball game, players can capitalize on the team’s potential to bring in massive damage against enemies. And while Broly’s absent for this particular build, the duo of Goku and Vegeta - both Saiyans with gorgeous hair - remain more than enough to compensate and become a meta-worthy Pure Saiyans combination.

At the core of the build is the Legendary Variant of the Miraculous Final Battle Goku (GT) & Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta, whose Ki + 3 Leader Skill stacks an almost 200% HP, ATK, and DEF boost to characters that fit both the “Power of Wishes” and “Connected Hope” tag. This dual-tag buff stacks well with other Goku-Vegeta pairs, such as the UR Variant of the Miraculous Final Battle, the combat-buffing Exciting Deadly Battle and Universe’s Last Hope variant of SS3 Goku and SS2 Vegeta, as well as the self-sustaining Deadly Climax variant of GT Goku and SS4 Vegeta.

  • 1A: Miraculous Final Battle Goku (GT) & Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta (LR)
  • 1B: Miraculous Final Battle Goku (GT) & Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta (UR)
  • 2A: United Super Power Super Saiyan 3 Goku & Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta
  • 2B: Deadly Climax Goku (GT) & Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta
  • Floater 1: Universe’s Last Hope Super Saiyan 3 & Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta
  • Floater 2: Exciting Deadly Battle Super Saiyan 3 Goku & Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta
Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (3)

If there’s anything the Frieza and Cooler family have proven, it’s that they have the tendency to get killed and resurrect in a cybernetic body. And while Frieza in himself is a potent-enough character, to begin with, there’s potential to be tapped into when it comes to a full Metal Coolers build. Key to this team is Infinite Terror Metal Cooler, whose Ki + 3 Leadership Skill also gives a 200% boost to the HP, ATK, and DEF of other “Wicked Bloodline” members - something all other Metal Coolers possess.

Other Metal Coolers to take advantage of this buff include the Revived And Enhanced Strength variant and the Demonic Fighter Of Steel variant, as well as the self-healing Fusion With The Big Gete Star variant, Demonic Fighter Of Steel (Super INT) type, and the Overwhelming Army Metal Cooler Army.

  • 1A: Infinite Terror Metal Cooler
  • 1B: Revived And Enhanced Strength Metal Cooler
  • 2A: Overwhelming Army Metal Cooler Army
  • 2B: Fusion With The Big Gete Star Metal Cooler
  • Floater 1: Demonic Fighter Of Steel Metal Cooler (Super STR)
  • Floater 2: Demonic Fighter Of Steel Metal Cooler (Super INT)

9 Ginyu Force

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (4)

When Frieza noticed the likes of puny Earthlings (plus Vegeta) have been kicking the butts of his personal guard, he called the Ginyu Force to come to take care of this mess. While they’re not as powerful compared to other characters in Dragon Ball lore, Dokkan Battle’s Ginyu Force headed by Captain’s Ace In The Hole Captain Ginyu is certainly formidable. His +3 Ki Leadership Skill that can grant up to +200% buff to HP, ATK, and DEF of “Terrifying Conquerors,” “Planet Namek Saga” and “Space-Traveling Warriors” easily fit the rest of his team.

This buff is especially useful to stunners such as Brutal Power and Psychokinesis Recoome & Guldo, tanks such as The Ultimate Fighting Squadron Captain Ginyu (Ginyu Force) and Courageous Clash Captain Ginyu, and especially to support units such as Red And Blue Light Orbs Jeice & Burter and Ginyu Force Reborn Ginyu (Goku) (Ginyu Force).

  • 1A: Captain’s Ace In The Hole Captain Ginyu
  • 1B: Brutal Power and Psychokinesis Recoome & Guldo
  • 2A: The Ultimate Fighting Squadron Captain Ginyu (Ginyu Force)
  • 2B: Courageous Clash Captain Ginyu
  • Floater 1: Red And Blue Light Orbs Jeice & Burter
  • Floater 2: Ginyu Force Reborn Ginyu (Goku) (Ginyu Force)

8 Turtle School

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (5)

Before there was the Z-Warriors of Dragon Ball Z, the original Dragon Ball series had the Turtle School. Led by Master Yoshi, this team in Dokkan Battle is headlined by The Soul That Heats Up In A Fierce Battle Goku and his comrades. Key to his position as Leader is his Leadership Skill, which grants Ki + 3 and HP, ATK, DEF +200% to all Turtle School members.

This buff greatly boosts the potential of his other teammates, all of whom are also students of Master Roshi. These include heavy-hitting Earth’s Best Elite Yamcha, as well as self-sustaining Super Saiyan Goku variants such as Extraordinary Super Warrior, Earth-Shaking Immense Power, and Miracle-Making Super Saiyan. Even the Legend Reborn Super Saiyan God Goku and his decent tanking toolkit can benefit from A Fierce Battle’s basic buffs.

  • 1A: The Soul That Heats Up In A Fierce Battle Goku
  • 1B: Earth’s Best Elite Yamcha
  • 2A: Extraordinary Super Warrior Super Saiyan Goku
  • 2B: Earth-Shaking Immense Power Super Saiyan Goku
  • Floater 1: Miracle-Making Super Saiyan Super Saiyan Goku
  • Floater 2: Legend Reborn Super Saiyan God Goku

7 Short Spurt Android Saga

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (6)

It was around the Android Saga that fans not only learn that Goku survived but that Vegeta has achieved his Super Saiyan form through training, and he has a son, Trunks, who came from the future. It’s this rather weird combination that Dokkan Battle players might want to use as a F2P build, with Short Spurt Android Saga being quite the potent team setup. At its core, players would want to use this team for quick battles through their powerful energy attacks, given that a lot of its units lose their steam over time. With the right combos, this team can become a great go-to for farming sessions.

  • 1A: Technique And Inspiration Krillin
  • 1B: Invincible Battle Form Supper Vegeta/Super Trunks
  • 2A: Answers Found In Training Super Saiyan Goku/Super Saiyan Gohan
  • 2B: Awakened Saiyan Blood Super Saiyan Vegeta
  • Floater 1: Alternate Ending Super Saiyan Trunks (Future)
  • Floater 2: Unwavering Will And Newfound Power Super Saiyan Goku

6 Great Saiyaman And Majin Buu

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (7)

The Majin Buu Saga in the original Dragon Ball Z series serves as its final arc, and here fans would see Gohan become a full-grown teen and even adopt a superhero identity: the Great Saiyaman. In Dokkan Battle, fans get a taste of Gohan’s growth in this Great Saiyaman And Majin Buu team, a surprisingly potent F2P team players could acquire. Their synergies are surprisingly decent, with its Goku unit serving as its mainline fighter with his signature Kamehameha while Great Saiyaman 1 & 2 serving as its vanguard damage soaker. Units in the team are:

  • 1A: Unstoppable Battle SSJ Goku (Angel)
  • 1B: Brave Pair Gohan (Teen) & Videl
  • 2A: Blazing Love And Burning Justice Great Saiyaman 1 & 2
  • 2B: Spirited Golden Warrior Super Saiyan Gohan (Teen)
  • Floater 1: Tiniest Top-Notch Hero Vegito (Candy)
  • Floater 2: Oozing Struggle Super Saiyan Trunks (Kid)

5 Universe 6 Balance

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (8)

In the Tournament of Power in Dragon Ball Super, fans are treated to a delightful host of combatants from various alternate Universes, with Universe 6 serving as a rather close counterpart to that of Earth. Players of Dokkan Battle can actually use a lot of units from this era in the Universe 6 Balance team, a F2P team that boasts a remarkable balance that can help players throughout the earliest parts of the endgame. At its core, Vados can boost the team’s overall ATK and DEF and debuff the enemies of the same stats. Meanwhile, Cabba and Hit become the team’s overall damage dealers, while Saonel and Pirina become tanks with their supportive techniques. Here is the recommended arrangement:

  • 1A: Definite Path Vados
  • 1B: Power Of Pride And Bonds Super Saiyan 2 Cabba
  • 2A: Well-Honed Body And Mind Super Saiyan 2 Kale
  • 2B: Silent Bloodthirst Hit
  • Floater 1: In The Name Of Survival Saonel & Pirina
  • Floater 2: Battle Lust Super Saiyan 2 Caulifla

4 Super Saiyan Blue Domination

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (9)

It was the Super Saiyan Blue transformation in Dragon Ball Super that rocked the Dragon Ball fandom in its first appearance, as it seems there’s no stopping Goku from attaining more transformations. As fans recall, it was SSJ4 Gogeta that, at the time of Dragon Ball GT, was the strongest of Goku and Vegeta’s forms. In turn, it makes sense for fans of Dokkan Battle to want to make a build out of these Super Saiyan forms. Thankfully, Super Saiyan Blue Domination is a F2P team that makes practical use of these combinations, giving a team a decent balance of ATK and DEF, provided they stack their bonuses correctly. Units for this build are:

  • 1A: All Or Nothing Super Saiyan God SS Vegito
  • 1B: Watchers Of The Cosmos Supreme Kai
  • 2A: Holy Ambush West Supreme Kai
  • 2B: Fictitious Universe’s Strongest Berus (Monaka Costume)
  • Floater 1: The Power Of A God Unleashed Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta
  • Floater 2: Becoming A Furious God Super Saiyan God SS Goku

3 Hybrid Saiyan Cuteness

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (10)

At the start of Dragon Ball Z, it was the appearance of Gohan that made fans awe at the potential a Hybrid Saiyan could reach. As such, the chemistry between co*cky Trunks and cheerful Goten became quite apparent during the Majin Buu Saga, particularly during their time as Gotenks. In turn, fans of Dokkan Battle who want to have a build comprised completely of Hybrid Saiyans can find a nifty F2P build via Hybrid Saiyan Cuteness. In this build, Pan serves as the primary tank and healer, with Trunks and Goten being the team’s major damage dealers. Here’s the arrangement of units:

RELATED: Every Tournament In Dragon Ball, Ranked

  • 1A: Young Saiyan Descendant Super Saiyan Vegeta Jr.
  • 1B: Wings Spread Out To The Cosmos Pan (GT) (Honey)
  • 2A: Little Great Saiyaman Of Mystery Trunks (Kid) (Great Saiyaman)
  • 2B: Confidence-Oozing Struggle Super Saiyan Trunks (Kid)
  • Floater 1: Curiosity-Filled Struggle Super Saiyan Goten (Kid)
  • Floater 2: Super Ghost Prank Super Saiyan Gotenks & Ghost

2 Vegeta’s Family

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (11)

Vegeta is no slouch when it comes to showing his pride as the Prince of Saiyans, especially to his rival Goku. As such, it makes sense for Vegeta’s own lineage in Dragon Ball to be one of the most powerful in the universe. Comprised mainly of Vegeta, Trunks, Bulla, and his descendant Vegeta Jr., players of Dokkan Battle can create Vegeta’s Family as a rather competent F2P option to help them in most battles. This aggressive-leaning build is perfect for players who want a fast-paced, offensive take in combat with their techniques. Here are its most pivotal components:

  • 1A: Invincible Battle Form Supper Vegeta/Super Trunks
  • 1B: The Power Of A God Unleashed Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta
  • 2A: Alternate Ending Super Saiyan Trunks (Future)
  • 2B: Little Great Saiyaman Of Mystery Trunks (Kid) (Great Saiyaman)
  • Floater 1: Awakened Saiyan Blood Super Saiyan Vegeta
  • Floater 2: Young Saiyan Descendant Super Saiyan Vegeta Jr.

1 Goku’s Family

Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle: Best F2P Teams (12)

It’s perhaps Goku and his family that becomes the highlight of his Dragon Ball journey, and it’s no doubt that it’s in Goku’s bloodline where some of the strongest fighters in the universe lie. After all, who could forget Goku and Gohan’s Father-and-Son Kamehameha against Cell? Fans of Goku’s lineage in Dokkan Battle will enjoy the Goku’s Family team, as a lot of F2P options can actually make for a competent Goku-centric build. At its core, SSJ Goku will be a tank here due to his damage soaking, whereas Pan can guarantee survivability via heals. Here are other components of Goku’s family that make for a great build:

  • 1A: Awakened Saiyan Blood Super Saiyan Vegeta
  • 1B: Unwavering Will And Newfound Power Super Saiyan Goku
  • 2A: Courage Awakened Super Saiyan Goku Jr.
  • 2B: Wings Spread Out To The Cosmos Pan (GT) (Honey)
  • Floater 1: Becoming A Furious God Super Saiyan God SS Goku
  • Floater 2: Hope For Growth Gohan (Kid)

Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle was released on January 30, 2015, for Android and iOS.
