(those are the closest to their real nicknames in Fire Pro 1 as I could get, with some changes. Also “R.J Faze” and “Carlos Krauser” are an unplayable boss team, as “Heroes of Legend” but I don’t think they have profile pics)

Promotional image for I’m pretty sure the 5th Dragon Ball Z movie “The Incredible Strongest vs Strongest” by Minoru Maeda. The design for Coola seems to be a subtly different earlier incarnation of how he’d eventually appear in the film (or perhaps its just the way the image is colored making it appear that way to my eyes).
