Which Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Packs Are Worth Buying?

The sheer number of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC packs makes it hard for players to choose which ones to purchase, but these are worthwhile.

Bardock, Goku’s father, has recently experienced a Renaissance thanks to some enlightening flashback chapters in Dragon Ball Super’s manga. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has yet to incorporate these touches of character development, but Bardock is still one of the game’s strongest fighters for those who know how to get the most out of the scrappy Saiyan.

Bardock has impressive, well-rounded stats that have only grown more favorable through various Xenoverse 2 updates. Bardock doesn't benefit from extensive Super Saiyan transformations, but his Strike Super Attack is hard to counter and he's a great character to close a fight. His reliability helps give him the edge over some of his flashier opponents.

14 Cooler (Final Form) is a Ruthless Opponent

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (8)

Frieza's Brother Packs a Powerful Punch

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

December 20, 2016

DB Super Pack 1

There are more than a dozen Dragon Ball Z films, most of which are fondly remembered for the villains they introduce. Cooler, Frieza's older brother, is the subject of two movies. However, he remains popular today because of his prominent use in Dragon Ball video games.

Like Frieza, Cooler has multiple transformations and his Final Form is a dangerous fighter who can hold his own against Golden Frieza under the right circ*mstances. Cooler's Death Beam, Shadow Crusher, and Death Crasher reflect how he differs from his brother. Cooler proved to be a DLC character worth the wait, as he's capable of occasionally punching above his weight class.

13 Fused Zamasu is a Divine Menace

Cause Godly Mayhem as Fused Zamasu

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

June 27, 2017

DB Super Pack 4

Dragon Ball Super spotlights Goku Black, but Supreme Kai Zamasu is the villain pulling the strings. Regular Zamasu is still one of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2’s strongest fighters, but players can cause even greater mayhem with Fused Zamasu.

Holy Wrath, Blades of Judgement, and Divinity Unleashed are all easy ways to end the battle prematurely before opponents have time to think. Fused Zamasu represents an apocalyptic threat in Dragon Ball Super, partly from the overwhelming strength he wields and his insatiable ego. His combat style is satisfying for fans of the TV anime, as Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 properly translates this into the gameplay.

12 Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black is Different from Goku

A Powerful and Sinister Saiyan

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (10)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

April 25, 2017

DB Super Pack 3

Goku has faced many villains throughout the Dragon Ball franchise. However, Dragon Ball Super's Goku Black is easily one of the franchise's most disturbing enemies since he steals Goku's body to use it for evil, mass-scale destruction. Goku Black is already deadly, but Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black is the evil Saiyan's Super Saiyan Blue equivalent.

This version of Goku Black benefits from overwhelming attacks like the Super Black Kamehameha Rosé, Divine Retribution, and Sudden Death Beam. Goku Black also fights with an evasive style that's true to his character and prides itself on being deceptive and difficult to predict.

11 Hit/Hit (Awoken) is a Legendary Assassin

The Deadly Time-Skipping Warrior

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (11)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

February 28, 2017

DB Super Pack 2

In Dragon Ball Super, the strongest warriors from Universe 6 turn into crucial allies by the series' end. Hit is a legendary assassin whose reputation is known from across the multiverse. As a result, audiences were eager to use Hit in a Dragon Ball video game ever since his first appearance.

Hit is arguably at his deadliest gameplay-wise in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Hit and his Awoken form possess powerful Strike Super Attacks like Super God Fist and Sledgehammer that can eviscerate most enemies. Hit's impressive speed and evasion skills elevate him further, making his appearance in Xenoverse 2 worthwhile.

10 Golden Frieza is the Ultimate Nemesis

The Most Powerful Version of the Notorious Villain

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

October 25, 2016

With a new Dragon Ball game coming out, fans revisiting Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will want to know how long it takes to complete the action RPG.

Frieza is a recurring nuisance for Goku and the rest of Dragon Ball's heroes, and Super brings the character back into a major role. He's revived in the anime movie Resurrection F, and his reintroduction came in time to feature in Xenoverse 2's base roster. The game includes all Frieza's transformations, including Super's superior Golden Frieza form.

Golden Frieza can efficiently clean up on the battlefield with his moveset, making him a great fit for players comfortable learning to string together elaborate combos. Attacks like Crazy Finger Shot and Emperor's Blast overwhelm and stun opponents, while Emperor's Death Beam is typically enough to finish the job. He might be difficult to learn for newcomers, but he has devastating potential for technical players.

9 Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta has the Pinnacle of Fusion Power

He has Some of the Strongest Ultimate Skills

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (13)

DLC Pack

December 20, 2016

DB Super Pack 1

Gogeta has four variations in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, and Dragon Ball GT's Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is available from the start. If nothing else, this red-haired version of Gogeta stands out from its peers. Gogeta has enviable stats and deadly base attacks like x100 Big Bang Kamehameha and Super Kamehameha that put most other super skills to shame.

Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is even better as a partner character, where he gains access to some of the strongest super and ultimate skills that Xenoverse 2 offers. Attacks like Earth Splitting Galick Gun live up to their names, helping Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta create glorious destruction on the battlefield.

8 Broly (Full Power Super Saiyan) is a Legendary Berserker

The Strongest Version of Broly Yet

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

December 19, 2018

Extra Pack 4

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 includes an older version of the infamous Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly, who appears in three Dragon Ball Z movies. Broly (Full Power Super Saiyan) is Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's 21st DLC character, and this version easily trumps his predecessor in the game.

This version of Xenoverse 2's Broly can endure heavy attacks while dishing out devastating damage through skills like Gigantic Rage, Gigantic Roar, and Gigantic Meteor. For a massive character, Broly (Full Power Super Saiyan) handles smoothly and can guard himself well from most attacks opponents can throw at him. Broly's deceptive speed pairs well with offensive and defensive traits.

7 Super Saiyan Blue Vegito & Gogeta are the Ultimate Fusions

The Strongest Fusions in the Game

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

December 12, 2017

Extra Pack 2

Fusion is a somewhat controversial concept, but Dragon Ball Super hasn't shied away from the idea, adding Vegito to the anime and letting Gogeta make a canonical debut in Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Xenoverse 2 provides Super Saiyan Blue versions of both Vegito and Gogeta, which are complimentary sides of the same coin.

Super Saiyan Blue Vegito and Gogeta have different stats and skills, but their Super Saiyan Blue states make them more powerful than most characters. Super Saiyan Blue Vegito benefits from longer-range attacks like Spirit Sword and the defensive luxuries of Force Shield. Meanwhile, Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta demonstrates his brute strength through attacks like God Punisher and Explosive Wave.

6 Toppo (God Of Destruction) is a Reckless Destroyer

The Pride Trooper Turned Destroyer

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (15)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

August 28, 2018

Extra Pack 3

Universe 11's Toppo, a Pride Trooper who fights alongside Jiren, is one of the most fascinating fighters to emerge from Dragon Ball Super's Tournament of Power, even if he received little backstory. Toppo, at his base power, is a reliable Xenoverse 2 character. However, the game's 28th DLC fighter is Toppo (God of Destruction), an upgraded version celebrating Toppo’s reckless Destroyer form.

Toppo isn't an official God of Destruction, but he's on that level of power. Fast recovery, speed, and defense make Toppo (God of Destruction) formidable against most opponents in Xenoverse 2. Any of his wide-ranging skills can quickly end a battle.

5 Jiren (Full Power) is an Unstoppable Juggernaut

Jiren has Unwavering Strength

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (16)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

December 19, 2018

Extra Pack 4

Jiren is one of the strongest characters featured in Dragon Ball Super. Xenoverse 2 includes a more powerful version of the Universe 11 juggernaut as its 29th DLC character. Jiren (Full Power) represents the Pride Trooper’s raw strength that shows up in his battle against Ultra Instinct Goku in the Tournament of Power.

Standard Jiren was already powerful, but Jiren (Full Power) has high health. Additionally, his ki and stamina are nearly maxed out. Attacks like Full Power Energy Wave, Maximum Charge, and Power Rush can decimate the competition. Jiren's every bit as strong as in the Tournament of Power. A combination of high-damaging moves and a daunting health stat let him outlast most of his opponents in combat.

4 Gamma 1 & Gamma 2 are the Newest Androids

Dragon Ball's Best Fighter Isn't Even a Saiyan

Despite not being a Saiyan or having the ability to transform, Tien Shinhan is Dragon Ball's greatest fighter.

Extensive DLC is Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's most rewarding element. The most recent package focuses on the events of the anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Xenoverse 2's first "Hero of Justice Pack" includes Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, Red Ribbon's new state-of-the-art Androids.

These characters represent the ultimate strength in Super Hero that forces Gohan and Piccolo to ascend to new heights. They play the same role in Xenoverse 2, and their power translates into gameplay. Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 are extremely overpowered, in terms of their overall stats and strength, as well as the eclectic roster of skills at their disposal.

3 Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku is the Peak of Saiyan Strength

Have Mastery Over Ultra Instinct

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (18)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

August 28, 2018

Extra Pack 3

Ultra Instinct strength has proven to be a tricky and intense process for Goku. He needs to master multiple tiers before he reaches peak Ultra Instinct perfection. Every Ultra Instinct Goku featured in Xenoverse 2 can end a match quickly, but Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku (Xenoverse 2’s 33rd DLC fighter) is notably dangerous.

Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku has unbelievable skills like Divine Kamehameha, Sign of Awakening, and Celestial Wave. The only caveat with this powerful character is his stamina is relatively low. This urges players to make the most of every attack when controlling Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku. It can be a gamble, but technical players can finish off their competition before stamina becomes an issue.

2 Gohan (DBS: Super Hero) is the Acended Saiyan Warrior

Gohan Obtains a Beastly Power

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

February 17, 2023

Hero of Justice Pack 1

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's first Hero of Justice Pack includes Gohan (Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero) alongside the two Gamma Androids. Super Hero gives Gohan his overdue spotlight and this fresh version of the character trumps every other Gohan in Xenoverse 2.

This Gohan's stats are higher than his contemporaries, plus he gains new and exclusive skills like Super Dragon Flight. His Special Beam Cannon (Beast) is also a worthwhile gamble, dealing more damage the weaker Gohan is. The Beast awakening skill is also a DLC addition, and it helps players recreate Super Hero's chaotic climax where Gohan Beast defeats Cell Max.

1 Orange Piccolo & Piccolo (Power Awakening) are the Most Powerful Namekians

The Namekian has Been Revitalized

20 Strongest Characters In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ranked (19)

Initial Release Date

DLC Pack

May 18, 2023

Hero of Justice Pack 2

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero celebrates Gohan, but he also shares the spotlight with Piccolo, who receives some long overdue upgrades in the feature film. Orange Piccolo is Xenoverse 2's 39th DLC character, added in the game's second Super Hero-centric Hero of Justice Pack.

Namekians haven't gotten their due in Xenoverse 2, but Orange Piccolo benefits from wielding superior versions of most Namekian staples, like Fierce Fist, Apocalyptic Burst, and Special Beam Blast. It makes sense that one of the strongest characters from the newest movie is one of Xenoverse 2's most dangerous fighters. His most notable drawback is his low stamina, but he easily compensates with overwhelming combo strings that can bring down the toughest opponents.
