3DSDragon Ball: FusionsGanbarionCreate an avatar and engage in turn-based combat that does a decent job at mimicking the actual action of the series, as well as fuse characters (as the title implies)

DSDragon Ball Z: Harukanaru DensetsuBECTaking it all the way back to card-based combat, encounters take a long time but you gain experience between them
