DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 – All Races + Cast Character Specific – DLC 1 - steamlists.com

I have found lately that there still isn’t an up-to-date definitive transformation stat list for Xenoverse 2 that lists ALL benefits and drawbacks of each form. Most youtubers or forum sites just say the main benefits, but don’t cover everything. For example, I always thought that Super Saiyan forms have a stamina recovery debuff as well as a ki debuff, but apparently that’s just Super Saiyan 3. So to clear up any further confusion, I put this information together myself in the hopes that it is more accessible and more google-able in the future.
 
 
My primary source: DemonBoy (@o0DemonBoy0o on twitter)
 
(Note: this list is 95% the work of DemonBoy, who is an absolute legend in the Xenoverse community. I simply added my own notes to it and organized it for greater clarity. I also wanted to make it easier to google as I forget where to find this information every 5 months or so).
 
 
Secondary Sources: DBX2 Wiki, and the following Youtubers: Steedoj, Burcol, supersaiyancabby28. ( I used these sources just to compare what things are said about various transformation. For example, SSG was the trickiest to pinpoint exact stats for).

Drawbacks:
 

  • 3 bars of ki (300 ki) required to activate
  • Activates Stamina Auto-Drain | -12%
  • Increase User Stamina Damage Taken | +5% (meaning the stamina penalty for blocking attacks is increased)

Drawbacks:
 

  • 5 bars of ki (500 ki) required to activate
  • Increase all Damage Taken | +30%
  • Activates Stamina Auto-Drain | -46% (stamina bars drain rapidly, potentially leaving the user vulnerable if stamina depletes completely)
  • Increase User Stamina Damage Taken | +25% (meaning the stamina penalty for blocking attacks is increased dramatically)

 
Potential Unleashed
 
 
Benefits:
 

  • Increase all Attack Damage | +15%
  • Decrease all Damage Taken | -5%
  • Increase ki recovery from combos | +6.67% ->Note: While the gain is marginal, it is technically 91.67% better ki recovery than Super Saiyan 3. This is worth noting as these transformations tend to be compared to one another.
  • Increase Ground Speed | +11%
  • Increase Air Speed | +7%
  • Increase Boost Speed | +11%
  • Increase Dash Speed | +7%
  • No Super Saiyan vanish effect for combos and supers (arguably a benefit)

Earthlings

Power Pole Pro
 
 
Benefits:
 

  • Activates Super Armor (Damage) | 5% of Max HP

  • Increase Strike Skill Damage | +5%
  • Increase Boost Speed | +5%

 
Drawbacks:
 

  • 3 bars of ki (300 ki) to activate
  • Widely regarded as the worst awoken in the game-> It is an unconventional awoken that changes earthling combos in a manner that is unintuitive and inconsistent with regular gameplay. It is a difficult skill to extract meaningful damage from, does not utilize any of the strengths of earthling playstyles, and it is easy to get knocked out of.

 
 
 

Frieza Race

Turn Golden
 
 
Benefits:
 

  • Increase Basic Ki Blast Damage | +20%
  • Increase Ki Skill Damage | 30%
  • Increase Ground Speed | +15%
  • Increase Air Speed | +15%
  • Increase Boost Speed | +15%
  • Increase Dash Speed | +5%
  • Changes basic ki blasts to a completely unique style (Ki blasts become straight shooting purple blasts, charged ki blast becomes a death beam)

 
Drawbacks:
 

  • 5 bars of ki (500 ki) to activate
  • Decrease Ki Restoration Rate | -10%
  • Increase all Damage Taken | +15% (this is especially rough as Frieza race has one of the lowest health pools in the game)
  • Charged basic ki blast no longer has paralysing ability inherent to the Frieza race

  • Increase Ground Speed | +10%
  • Increase Air Speed | +7%
  • Increase Boost Speed | +10%
  • Increase Dash Speed | +7%
  • Stamina recovery is not interrupted by user attacks (meaning your stamina is in recovery essentially at all times)

 
Drawbacks:
 

  • 300 ki (or 3 bars of ki) to activate
  • Increase all Damage Taken | +25%
  • Stamina breaks knock the user out of the transformation
  • User becomes locked to Kid Buu’s entire moveset while in this form (including combos, ki blast variations, and ki/strike supers). You are effectively a different colored copy of Kid Buu.

Saiyans

(Note: I include the vanishing effect of Saiyan specific transformations applied to combos and charged signature supers as both a benefit and a drawback. Many players dislike the effect as it can make their combos slower/ less reliable due to the additional animation frames).

  • 5 bars of ki (500 ki) required to activate
  • Decrease Ki Restoration Rate | -85%
  • No benefit to stamina recovery from standing still on the ground (a serious downside when combined with slowed ki regeneration, as general recovery becomes more challenging. Even with buffed air recovery it is still quite slow.)

Super Saiyan God

  • Light combos ending with a heavy attack deal between 20% and 36% more damage on the final strike (this exact damage boost seems to be disputed). When the inputs are timed correctly, you will hear a sharp sound that confirms whether the final strike lands.
  • Vanish effect for combos and supers (arguably)

 
Drawbacks:
 

  • 3 bars of ki (300 ki) to activate
  • Combo inputs need to be timed carefully in order to maximize damage output (this is barely even a downside as it’s still an excellent skill whether this mechanic is optimally utilized or not)
  • *** Needs verification*** – Male and female variants are different (reportedly female variant has a greater movement speed buff and combos ending with a heavy attack send opponents to the ground)
  • Vanish effect for combos and supers (arguably)

Super Sonic Transformation (Dyspo)

Benefits:
 

  • No ki requirements to activate
  • Increase Basic attack Damage | +15-19% (15% according to Super Saiyan Cabby28, 19% according to CGvideoz) *** needs verification ***
  • Increase Strike attack Damage | +10%
  • Increase Ki attack Damage | +10%

  • No free vanishes like Kaioken, so stamina drains even quicker if vanishing
  • Heavy stamina break when stamina is depleted

 
 
 

Additional Notes/Speculations

Some cast characters seem to have different transformation rules. For example, Gohan’s version of Potential unleashed seems to be more similar to SSJ3 than the CaC version, as Gohan has the same standing posture and reduced stamina recovery. Base Gogeta (DBS) has a version of Super Saiyan that seems to boost his stats much more than regular SSJ does (closer to SSB/SSBE damage tier but with reduced stamina recovery).
