A failed fusion can only occur when fusing using the Fusion Dance in an incorrect way. Many of the fusions in the series have been performed incorrectly, leading to a failed fusion. There are examples of failed fusions from Dragon Ball Z, from movies, and from video games.

Failed versions of Gotenks

Fat Gotenks


Fat Gotenks

Goten and Trunks achieve this form when the Fusion Dance goes wrong, probably because Trunks stretches his finger at an inappropriate time. The result is a fat version of Gotenks. He tries to run but tires very quickly. For a moment, Krillin and Yamcha think that the fusion has succeeded, and that Gotenks has to be fat to regulate his power, similarly to Majin Buu. However, they soon change their minds when they see that fat Gotenks becomes winded after a brief and slow run. Fat Gotenks is also seen in Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, Goten and Trunks as Fat Gotenks say that they did not practice the fusion dance for a long time, and then they defuse. He is a playable character in Dragon Ball Heroes, but in other video games, he can not do any special attacks, and is already tired after a few kicks and punches. In the case of the 2004 RPG Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury, neither he nor the skinny variant can even move, and defuse automatically after a few seconds so that a successful fusion can be performed.

Skinny Gotenks


Skinny Gotenks

Goten and Trunks achieve this form of Gotenks when the Fusion Dance goes wrong for a second time. The failure is due to a lack of coordination, as when Goten and Trunks say "HAAH," their fingers do not meet. Skinny Gotenks can barely stand on his feet without getting tired, and he coughs a lot as well. Comically, after seeing this form of Gotenks, Chi-Chi exclaims "I can't love that!" to which Master Roshi asks "Why not? He's my age!", Krillin responds with "No...older!"

Failed versions of Gogeta


Veku 14

Veku fighting Super Janemba

Veku (ベクウ, Bekū)[1] is the obese version of Gogeta who appears when Goku and Vegeta attempt to fuse for the first time in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn against the demon Janemba. King Kai blames Vegeta for the mistake, claiming that Vegeta has failed to extend his index finger, resulting in an embarrassingly weak fusion which forms a fat fighter called "Veku" by South Kai; a name that comes from Vegeta and Goku. In this form, speed is decreased, and ki is extremely limited.

Veku does not perform any special ki attacks due to his severe ki limitation. Also, because of his fat body, he does not retaliate by punching and kicking. Instead, all he does against Super Janemba is pass gas and escape using what he calls his "Rabbit Feet" technique. Like most fusions, there is a 30-minute time limit before the two fighters defuse.

Veku is a playable character in Dragon Ball Heroes, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, and Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.

Techniques and special abilities
  • Declare Attack – A special ability used in Dragon Ball Heroes, which allows Veku to attack with his special move.
  • Kamehameha – Veku can use this in Dragon Ball Heroes and Dokkan Battle.
  • Rabbit Feet Technique – A running away technique used by Veku to flee from Super Janemba.

Skinny Gogeta card

Concept arts for a skinny Gogeta are shown in Daizenshuu 6, in the Fusion Reborn area, but the character was not included in the final version of the movie. A skinny Gogeta card exists in the Japanese card game Dragon Ball Carddass, released on March 22 of 1995 (just after the release of Fusion Reborn on March 4, 1995). Skinny Gogeta is also in the 2004 video game Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury, appearing when the player fails to do a proper fusion.

Skinny Tiencha

Skinny Tiencha

Skinny Tiencha

This form of Tiencha arrives in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2, when Yamcha and Tien Shinhan stretch their hands when they say "HAAH" in the last stage of the Fusion Dance, a costly mistake. In this form, Tiencha can still fly but can't do any special attacks. He can only use punches, kicks and simple ki attacks, and even these cost him a large portion of his energy. After a combo attack, he coughs, and if he tries a special attack like the Dodohameha, he again coughs, causing the attack to fail.
