For the Z Fighters of the incredibly popular Shonen series of Dragon ball, the two ways in which the characters normally merge are with Potarra earrings and fusion dance, these methods being respectively responsible for the creations of Vegito and Gogeta. During the Tournament of Power Arc, we saw the two female Saiyans from Universe Six merge using the first one, but one artist imagined what Kefla would look like if Caulifla and Kale had instead decided to merge using fusion dance rather than the earrings which are normally seen hanging from the ears of the Kaioshins.
There are several differences between fusion dance and potarra earrings, each having their own unique set of strengths and weaknesses. While Gogeta was recently introduced to canon in the last Dragon Ball Super movie, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, said fusion only lasts half an hour and said dance has to be performed perfectly for the fusion to be a success. With earrings, beings can merge, but the fusion can potentially be undone if said creation of fusion expends too much energy overall. Needless to say, it’s a balancing act, and Dragon Ball fans are still debating which Saiyan fusion characters reign supreme.
Twitter artist Daff Duff Art shared this perfect take on Kale and Caulifla merging if the two Saiyans of Universe Six decided to merge using fusion dance, creating a character who would more than likely have a different name than Kefla (maybe Caulile?):

Fusion was not used by the Z Fighters in Moro Arc or Granolah The Survivor Arc, the two post-Tournament of Power storylines that have yet to be seen in the animated adaptation. With Goku and Vegeta not having used the potarra earrings since the battle against Zamasu and Goku Black, it will be interesting to see if a fusion is used again to beat the intergalactic bounty hunter who is the last member of the cereal race.
Do you want to see the birth of a new version of Kefla? When do you think we’ll see the Saiyans of Universe Six make their comeback in Dragon ball super? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me straight on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of. Dragon ball.
