The Kaio-ken allows him to increase his physical strength and ki. When activated, Goku will perform consecutive attacks using a series of button combinations. When his allies are defeated in battle, his strength is increased in three or 20-fold.

The Super Spirit Bomb is Goku's most powerful attack, but he will need a powerful amount of energy to use it properly and the process is slow, making him vulnerable to attacks.

As for Base Vegeta, he has the Galick Gun and Galaxy Breaker. He can fire the Galick Gun on the ground or the air for destructive damage. The Galaxy Breaker allows Vegeta to fire off a huge amount of energy from his body.

So far, the DLC characters from the game are Broly, Bardock, Fused Zamasu, and Vegito.
