Like Z-Souls from Xenoverse, Super Souls are a type of equipment that can be equipped to grant certain bonuses or special effects. Additionally, certain Super Souls can alter the user' Ki Blast type which changes the nature of their Chargeable Ki Blasts.
Each Super Soul features a quote or word relating to the Dragon Ball series. In addition to the Future Warrior, other playable characters like Goku may have certain Super Souls equipped to a specific skillset or skillsets, though some characters (like the playable Supervillain forms lack Super Souls entirely). Like Z-Souls in Xenoverse some Super Souls reference non-playable characters (such as Babidi, Chiaotzu, Dende, Old Kai, Caulifla, Kale, Kibito, Shin, or Gowasu) or forms (like Kid Goku from Dragon Ball).
"You can trigger a Limit Burst by holding down Right Control Stick Button. Limit Bursts boosts your ATK and Health recovery rate, among other abilities. The effects of a Limit Burst changes depending on the Super Soul you have equipped. You can see the effects of each Super Soul on the Super Soul info screen. Limit Bursts may only be activated once per team during a quest or battle. The more KO'd members a team has, the greater the boosts gained from a Limit Burst."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Limit Burst Tutorial description
After the 1.09.00 Update, Super Souls gain a new feature called Limit Burst which can be activated once per team during a battle or quest. Limit Burst grants various effects such as Auto Health, Ki, Stamina, or Revival Gauge regeneration, boost ATK or DEF, or grant Super Armor. However in addition to beneficial effects some come with negative effects to balance out the positive ones. The more KO'd members a team has the greater the effect though it can only be activated once per team thus if one team member activates it then it can't be activated by another member of that team. Additionally the CPU not programmed to use Limit Burst, thus it can only be utilized by player controlled characters. The update adds Limit Burst information to each Super Souls info description (save for Super Souls unavailable to the Future Warrior or for Partner Customization such as Goku Black's "This pain will make me stronger!" and Ultra Instinct Goku's "Ultra Instinct!").
