—Character Select Menu

Captin Ginyu (ギニュー隊長, Ginyū) is a playable character in Dragon Ball FighterZ.


Captain Ginyu, Recoome, Guldo, Burter, and Jeice make up the Ginyu Force, Frieza's most elite (and most eccentric) soldiers. Be not fooled by their perchant for dramatic poses, for each member of the Ginyu Force is a dangerous one-man army unto himself. However, they would be defeated by Goku and Vegeta, with Ginyu left as the last surviving member of the troupe after his soul wound up trapped in a Namekian frog.

Gameplay Synopsis

Captain Ginyu is an extremely unpredictable, lethal, and viable combatant. Without the help of the Ginyu Force members, Captain Ginyu isn't very strong at all, as he is slower than most characters, has one decent special move, and one relatively poor level one super attack. But when you use the Ginyu Force assists he automatically becomes extremely lethal, and he is able to completely overwhelm his opponents with four extra helping hands. It is best to constantly use Ginyu Force assists to keep the pressure on your foe, and have an unrelenting assault. It is always best to use the Ginyu Force assists, then get your opponent in a combo, so if you fail and your opponent gets you in a combo, they'll get immediately attacked by the Ginyu Force members. Ginyu can attack his opponents from both directions at the same time by coupling some of the Ginyu Force assists with a Z-Vanish. And if your opponent manages to lower your health drastically Ginyu isn't out, as you can find an opening and perform a Body Change, instantly turning the tables.
