Unused Models

Dummy Models

To do:
Load the dummy model into the game via a simple file replacement and investigate any oddities.

Within the Avatar folder are files for a leftover dummy model, this model is a basic male with bald head, he appears to not be wearing any clothes, and has no texture associated with him, only three material files, however he does still have intact UVs. He utilises the standard avatar skeleton and animations, and has an intact rig. No other dummy avatars appear to be present within the files for this character.

DLC References

Various models, sound files, and textual references pertaining to characters who would later become available as downloadable content were actually still present in the game's base release:


Base Goku & Base Vegeta

The character models for Goku & Vegeta in their base forms (labelled GKN & VGN) were actually still present in the game's files upon release, albeit unused.

Dataminers were quick to notice that there were various differences between these models and the base forms seen in Goku & Vegeta's intros when using their Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan Blue forms - in addition to GKN & VGN being located in totally separate file directories, the VGN model for Vegeta had him clad in his thicker Saiyan Saga armour, alongside the tail and scouter he had during that period.

Base forms for Goku & Vegeta as they appeared in the Saiyan Saga would later be announced as downloadable fighters on July 18th, 2018, and would be released August 8th the same year. However, when released, the base form for Vegeta did not have a scouter, indicating that at some point he was supposed to have one, be it for a special intro or simply a part of his character model.

Sword of Hope

The Sword of Hope, used during Trunks' Dramatic Finish against Fused Zamasu, was fully modeled for the character upon release, despite the Dramatic Finish, and consequently, the model itself, not being used at all until Zamasu's release as a downloadable fighter.

Cooler Announcement

Hidden alongside the announcer's voice files was an announcement for Cooler, titled "NA_0133_Name_CLN". Interestingly, his file was not present in the English narration directory, and Cooler himself was one of the last characters of the first DLC pack to be announced. (alongside Android #17)

Lobby Avatar References

Text relating to lobby avatars existed for the entire 1st wave of DLC fighters upon release, leaking them all well ahead of their official announcements.

Fused Zamasu
Vegito (SSGSS)
Bardock (Super Saiyan)

Unused Voice Lines

To do:
Add these along with the bountiful of other voice lines.

There appear to be many voice lines unused in the game files, one of which is Goku Black explaining what his ultimate attack is, and a second one is Vegito when launching his Final Kamehameha at Zamasu says " Go to Hell!"
