Changes to the Tier of Power requirements and Stress Test Value of all transformations.

Average Stress Test is 1d10 (5) + Power Level + 1 for every two (2) Personality modifier (Limit Breaker).

This is assuming you raise your Personality Modifier by at least two (2) once every Tier of Power or once every five (5) Power Levels.

This means by Power Level twenty (20) you should be able to take and pass a Target Number of twenty-nine (29) roughly 50-55% of the time. This is would be without any Talents, Karma, or other traits.

The Stress Test Value of all forms are based around this formula. Somewhere between ten (10) and fourteen (14) will be the average Stress Test for Transformations that require Tier of Power one (1) to use.

Tier of Power Zero (0)

  • (*) Great Ape
  • (8) Giant Form
  • (*) Rage
  • (10) Power Boost
  • (12) Powerhouse
  • (10+) Kaioken
  • (10) Dark Demon
  • (10) Divine Halo

Tier of Power One (1)

  • (13) Super Saiyan (Stage One)
  • (12) Metamorphosis (Stage Three)
  • (12) Pure Form
  • (11) Class Up
  • (*) Golden Ape

Tier of Power Two (2)

  • (19) Super Saiyan Two (Stage Two)
  • (17) Metamorphosis (Stage Two)

Tier of Power Three (3)

  • (25) Super Saiyan Two (Stage Three)
  • (24) Metamorphosis (Stage One)

Tier of Power Four (4)

  • (31)Super Saiyan Two (Stage Four)
  • (31) Metamorphosis (Stage Zero)
  • (30) Godly Powers

Tier of Power Five (5)

  • (26+) Ultimate Evolution (Stage Zero)
  • (38) Ultra Instinct`

Hello Z-Warriors!

I wanted to speak for a moment to everyone about how amazing the community is. I would have never imagined fourteen years ago what this game would become. From sitting in the back room of my friend’s apartment writing rules in a notebook for a Dragon Ball Z role-playing game to running a community of hundreds for the internet’s number one Dragon Ball role-playing Game – Dragon Ball Universe.

I would like to thank Luminaire and Vinesauce for their efforts and dedication to editing DBU and keeping all the rules error free.

I want to thank the moderators on our discord, Ferhargo, GSM for keeping the peace.

I like to extend a thank you our collaborators; Harmony, Worst Software, Kota1908, Sir Chris, Gabe/Tomaben, Worm, Avaliab and Oboe. I want to make an extra thanks to Worm for their professional homebrewing and helping other community members bring to their ideas to life.

I would also like to thank our Patreon members who donate to help keep the website up and running; ssj4god, Elik Heavensblood, Zoren and 2shae720.  All donation welcome, never asked for or needed.

Finally, I would like to thank all of the community for their fandom, support, and feedback. I like to thank everyone for allowing me to be part of this project and to lead it.

Remember to share!

  • Keep Training!
