Anime and manga have created a rave on the internet for the right reasons. Besides bringing a coalition of animation and realism, anime characters also pack in an action punch, making it everyone’s favorite.
However, if you are a novice in anime, chances are that Naruto is the only thing you are likely aware of, and that’s fine. But what about video games? Jump Force, one of the top anime integrated games, garnered so much popularity on the internet.
Sadly, Bandai Namco, in February 2022, announced that users wouldn’t be able to buy digital copies of Jump Force or any of the associated DLC characters. They also reported that many of the game’s online services would be discontinued in August 2022.
Although not many players have an idea why Jump Force is getting delisted, the only thing we can do is keep track of all the popular DLC characters for future gameplay. This article explores all of that and more in detail.

Jump Force DLC Characters – Season 1
It’s always better to start the list of names with the most popular ones in the hood. So, it was not even a question that we had to start the list with the DLC characters that appear in Season 1.
1. Seto Kaiba
The first appearance of Seto Kaiba in Jump Force happens when he encounters Luffy and sabo. This occurs during the venom sightings, which Kaiba collected by himself. During that interaction, Kaiba also tells Luffy and Sabo that the reason he is doing so is to make the world a better place for his little brother, Mokuba. Although Luffy offers Kaiba a choice to join Jump Force, he declines at the moment and says he would ponder the options. He also tells them that he’d work on his strengths to defeat them later when they cross paths.
