Like many fighting games, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has a handful of characters that can be unlocked in various ways.

In Xenoverse 2 , out now for the Nintendo Switch, the methods to unlocking new fighters are not similar to how other fighting games handle them. Completing different parts of the story mode will unlock characters, while completing Parallel Quests and making wishes to Shenron are other ways.

Here’s how to unlock every character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PS4.


The first and easiest way to unlock fighters in Xenoverse 2 is to progress through the story. Not only will characters become available but alternate costumes and movesets for these fighters will appear in the character selection screen.

Which characters appear during which parts of the story? Well, it’s easy to see when you can get every fighter.

Playing through the Saiyan Saga, for example, will give you access to Raditz, Nappa, Vegeta and the Z-Fighters tasked with taking them down.

Frieza Saga gives Zarbon, Dodoria the Ginyu Force, Frieza and so forth. Pretty much any character you face will become available once they are defeated so make sure to play through the entire story to unlock everyone.


There are four characters that can only be obtained through making a wish to Shenron. To do so, you’ll need to collect all seven Dragon Balls and choose “I want more useable Characters.”

You will get one of four characters: Hit, Ice, Nova and Omega Shenron.

To collect and farm for the Dragon Balls, follow our farming guide.


The most time-consuming method of obtaining new characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is by completing all 100 Parallel Quests.

Certain characters can only be obtained by Ultimate Finishing certain Parallel Quests. These characters include Super Vegito and Super Saiyan Gogeta.
