How Captain Ginyu joined the Tourney

Like the other members of the Ginyu Force, Ginyu's special powers originated during his childhood. When Ginyu first learned of his Body Change ability, he swapped bodies with the richest kid in his class, which made him popular with girls but also stupid, and he soon realized that men should compete in terms of strength rather than money. Only a few people have seen Ginyu's true form, and Salza is among them. Salza had to fight Ginyu to become leader of Cooler's Armored Squadron.

To further spread the will of the Galactic Trade Organization, Ginyu and his team are sent on a mission to affect a change in the course of time. Standing in Ginyu's way was Hanzo.

After the announcer calls his name

Ginyu spins to turn his back, leans down with his hands apart, then lowers his head between his legs and brings his hands to it as the camera zooms, then says "Feel the power of the Ginyu Force. That's right, Captain Ginyu!"

Special Moves

Milky Cannon (Neutral)

Captain Ginyu holds his right hand forwards, and then releases a strong purple wave of energy from it.

Strong Jersey (Side)

Ginyu charges a purple/pink energy sphere around himself, and afterwards charges the opponent at blinding speed with his elbow, all while shouting "You're mine!".

Ginyu Strike (Up)

Ginyu punches the opponent up in the air, and then he punches him more in mid-air three times and elbows him/her down again. In midair, he boosts upward with a punch.

Got You! (Down)

Captain Ginyu says "Wide open!" as he elbows the opponent in the face. Then, he attacks the opponent with a barrage of punches before punching them away, inflicting a great amount of damage.

Triple Milky Cannon (Hyper Smash)

Captain Ginyu holds his hands back like the normal Milky Cannon. Then, he keeps charging it until three small energy waves join together to form an energy sphere in between his hands. Finally, Captain Ginyu points his left hand forward and fires three Milky Cannons instead of one at the opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage.

Body Change (Final Smash)

Captain Ginyu remarks "Ha ha. I like it! That's a fine body!" then stabs himself. He then fires energy out of his mouth with a cry of "Change NOOOOOOOWWWWW!" If the opponent is hit, his/her mind will be swapped with Ginyu and the names on their icons will shift. If Ginyu wins in the opponent's body, he will be the winner. The reverse will happen if the opponent in Ginyu's body wins. The mind swap is undone after 90 seconds.
