Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3



-Quick game review:

 Budokai 3 continues the budokai saga, but elevates 
it to a hole new level. Anyone who played the first 
two games will notice a MAJOR evolution in gameplay 
and grafics in this game.

 As for grafics Budokai 3 finally has auras that REALLY 
resemble the series, when you power up the aura becomes 
stronger and stronger as your ki rises, and if you're 
close to the ground you'll see wind on the ground lifting 
dust and such. The more powerfull the characters the 
stronger the aura. Another great thing in the games grafics 
is that now EVERYONE has their own fighting and powering up 
stances, and for characters with different transformations, 
both stances may change(for example frieza and cell have 
different ones for each transformation, Goku has a different 
one for ss3 and ss4, Piccolo and vegeta have different ones 
for their final transformations, etc).

 As for gameplay, which is what really matters, B3 is by 
far superior to B1 and 2. For starters every character is 
now MUCH more unique. The basic moves shared by characters 
have much more variety, and a lot of characters have unique 
attacks(such as frieza using his tail, trunks and dabura 
using their swords, piccolo stretching his arms, etc), and 
not just Buu, like in B2. Then the basic gameplay was redone. 
There aren't anymore of those special moves for each character 
that end up being exactly the same for everyone, just with 
different names, such as a ki blast shower, a high speed 
beatting or a combo that chases the opponent. Now each character 
only has really UNIQUE special moves, and each characters 
has at least 2(except for Cell jr., who only has one).
 Then the most important new aspect of the gameplay is 
teleporting and evading. You can now evade your opponent's 
basic attacks and teleport behind (this all takes ki away 
obviously). You can also appear behind your opponent after you 
execute a strong attack, and hit him with another sending him 
flying in any other direction, and repeat the process up to three 
times.
 Then there's also the addition of free flight (FINALLY :P). 
If you press backwards twice and hold the button your character 
will now dash/fly backwards instead of just hoping backwards, 
and if you press up/down while doing this the character 
will fly up or down respectively.

 All of these additions make the game MUCH MUCH better 
than the previous 2 Budokai games, and they also make this the 
GREATEST AND MOST FAITHFULL TO THE SERIES DBZ GAME EVER :) :) :)



-Now on to the real FAQ :

Basic Maneuvers and Move properties:


POWERING UP: By pressing G*,B,B* you'll power up by filling 
your ki gauges.

TAUNTING: By pressing G*,D,D without any item skill equiped 
or available to use you'll taunt your opponent. If you're 
not attacked during the taunt you'll lower his ki, but if 
he attacks you during the taunt, he'll interrupt it, and you 
won't affect him. Each taunt lowers the opponent's ki by 1 
gauge.

DASHING/FLYING: By pressing B,B* while on the ground you'll 
Dash backwards, and if you press U while you're dashing 
backwards you'll fly up. When you're in the air you'll fly 
backwards instead of dashing, and you can press D/U while 
flying to fly downwards or upwards respectivelly. By pressing 
F,F* you'll dash towards your opponent, and if you or your 
opponent is in the air, instead you'll fly towards him.

SIDESTEPPING: You can ss by pressing U/D+G. This 
is a really useful maneuver, and you MUST master 
this to be able to really take advantage of the 
game's system. Use it to evade your opponent's 
attacks without consumig ki, or when you don't have 
any ki.

ROLL: You can break your fall by pressing G at the right 
time when you hit the ground. If you press G you'll execute 
a standard roll and immediatly get up in the same place, 
if you press U+G o D+G you'll immediatly evade U/D 
respectively when you hit the ground. You can't roll if 
you're knocked down: certain attacks, that for example 
trip your legs, or smash you against the ground won't 
let you roll.

STRONG ATTACKS: Attacks that send your opponent 
flying backwards/upwards/downwards. These open 
the possibility of pursuing combos.

BREAK FLIGHT: When you're hit by a strong attack you'll 
be pushed away by the hit. When you're close to a wall, 
or close to the limits of the World Tournament stage you'll 
go against the wall taking extra DMG, or you'll get ringed 
out in the WT stage. By pressing G before you reach 
the wall/stage limits your break your flight and you won't 
go against the wall nor get ringed out. You can hold G right 
after being hit by the attack.

DASH ATTACKS: These attacks are performed by pressing P, 
K or P+K when dashing/flying towards your opponent. 
These attacks will break your opponent defense if he 
tries to guard the attack, leaving him open for attack 
for a short time. Most of these attacks are strong attacks. 
Some characters also have a dashing E attack similar to 
these 3, (for example Frieza, Yamcha, Piccolo and Tien).

CHARGED ATTACKS: some attacks have the special property of 
being charged. If you hold the button of the attack pressed 
after performing it it will gradually charge, and be released 
when max charged, being unblockable. At any time during 
the charge you can cancel the attack by guarding or sidesteping; 
use this to make devastating custom combos. While charging 
an attack you will be invulnerable to any one single basic 
attack that your opponent does, but any special attack, or 
any combo, or any attack after that first one will hit you. 
Included in this category are the P+K, B+P+K and F+P+K attacks.

THROWS: Throws are performed by pressing P+G, and they are 
unblockable, but they obviously have to be performed at a 
very close range, and when the opponent is not attacking. 
Throws can however be evaded by pressing P+G at the same 
time as the opponent does the move, or they can be evade 
by teleporting.

KI SISTEM: The ki sistem in B3 is different from the previous 
2 games. You now have 7 vertical ki gauges standing by each 
other. Every character has a number of ki gauges which 
represent his baseline ki (they are taller gauges, and 
the number depends on the character/transformation of the 
character). Whenever your ki is below the baseline it will 
gradually fill up; when your ki is at the baseline it will not 
fill or depleat itself; and whenever your ki is above the 
baseline it will gradually depleat itself. When you ki is below 
baseline your guard percentage (percentage of DMG you take from 
attacks) will go down (your guard will be 2% weaker for every ki 
gauge that you use below the baseline), and when your ki is above 
the baseline your attack percentage (percentage of DMG you do 
with an attack) will go up (your attack will be 2% stronger for 
every ki gauge you have filled up above the baseline, except for 
the 7th one, wich will give you a 4% increase in attack). When 
your ki is at baseline your attack and guard percentage are steady 
at that character/transformation's default value (unless you're 
using support or item capsules, which affect these values). When 
your ki is at Max it will remain steady for about 3 seconds before 
it starts to decrease back to baseline. When you're attacked with 
less than one ki gauge you'll be exhausted, and you'll have to 
button mash to recover with one ki gauge, and until you do you'll 
be extremely vulnerable to major DMG!

KI BLASTS: These are the basic ki attacks. Every character 
(except for Hercule/Mr. Satan, Uub and Videl) has them, and 
they're performed by simply pressing E. If you press E 
some consecutive times you'll shoot a series of ki blasts, 
and depending on the character it can go from a single one 
(for example kid Goku), to 4 or more (for example Vegeta, 
Goku, and most of the characters). Some characters also 
have a dashing E attack similar to a ki blast (for example 
Vegeta, Goku, Cell and Gohan), and some characters shoot more 
than one ki blast with this move (for example Vegito, 
who shoots three consecutive ki blasts). Each ki blast 
uses 1/3 of a ki gauge.

DEFLECTING: If you press G at the right time you can deflect 
your opponents ki blasts, and there are two options on this: 
you either press G a bit before the ki blast reaches you 
and you'll deflect it away from the you, or you press G just 
before the ki blast reaches you and you'll deflect it back to 
your opponent. Both options are useful! Don't think that you'll 
always be better by deflecting it back to your opponent, 
because he can counter deflect it back to you, or he can even 
teleport behind you and attack you.

EVADING: You can evade all of your opponent's physical attacks, 
except for throws and ultimate moves, by pressing G at the right 
time when your opponent performs each attack. Each move you evade 
uses aproximatelly 1/3 of a ki gauge.

TELEPORTING: If you press F+G at the right time when your 
opponent is attacking you you'll teleport behind him. You then 
have two options: you either let go of G and your character will 
automatically perform a strong attack sending your opponent 
flying for some pursuing combos (this is a dangerous option 
when you're playing against a skilled opponent because it is 
easilly counter evaded), or you can keep pressing G and your 
character will only teleport behind your opponent, and then 
you can do whatever you want (this is the best option, and is 
specially useful when you're trying to avoid being hit). 
Teleporting uses 3 ki gauges for each teleportation.

PURSUING: After you perform a strong attack you can teleport 
behind your opponent and hit him with another strong attack 
by pressing e after the attacks connects. If you press E 
you'll hit you opponent in the oposite direction from where he 
came; if you press D+E you'll hit the opponent downwards; 
and if you press U+E you'll hit the opponent upwards. This can 
only be done while in the air, meaning you can't do this when 
you're fighting on the ground. You can only pursue for 3 
consecutive times, and if you hit your opponent against a wall 
or the ground it stops. Pursuing uses aproximatelly 4/5 of a ki 
gauge for each teleportation.

TRANSFORMATIONS: Most of the characters in this games have 
transformations. These states will change your character's attack 
and/or guard and/or ki baseline values, and some will even open 
up new moves, and most will change your character and his aura's 
looks. They are performed by pressing P+K+G when you have the needed, 
or more than those, ki gauges, and if you're in contact with your 
opponent when you perform the transformation you'll break his guard. 
Some transformations will be reversed back to default stage when 
you're hit with less than one ki gauge (for example any super saiyan 
transformation, or Gohan's and Krillin's unlock potential), while 
others are not reversible after being executed (for example Frieza 
and Cell's transformations, Cooller's transformation or Brolly's 
Legendary Super Sayan transformation.).

DEATH MOVES: These are the characters unique special moves, 
which can be done at the end of a specific string, or by pressing 
F/B+E, depending on the move. Some of these moves require 
additional commands after being started (for example Vegeta's Final 
Impact, which is done by pressing B+E, E, E, E, F+E, and the last 
command will only work if you hit the opponent with the other 
attacks).

BEAM STRUGGLE: When both characters perform a Ki based 
death move at the same time, with some distance between them 
they'll enter a Beam struggle, during which you have to button 
mash your command, or (and I recommend doing this, because 
it'll be quicker, and easier to do) rotate both analogs, and 
the one who does this the quickest wins the struggle. At the 
end the character who wins may pursue the opponent for a combo.

BURST MODE: When both characters performs an attack that gives 
them immunity to one single attack (like a charge attack, or some 
other basic attacks) at the same time, when in contact with each other, 
they'll enter burst mode, which works exactly the same as 
a beam struggle.

HYPER MODE: If you press P+K+E+G you'll enter hyper mode. 
During this state you're invulnerable to weak attacks 
(you still lose health, but you won't be delayed by the hit, 
meaning your movements won't be interrupted by your opponent's 
weak attacks). Your ki will start decreasing faster than 
normal, and you won't be able to regain it until you exit 
hyper mode, but it will leave a red trail behind it. During 
this state is when you perform your character's Ultimate 
move(or one of them if your characters has more than one), by 
pressing again P+K+E+G; the required amount of ki gauges for 
the ultimate move will be represented by the red trail I 
mentioned above, meaning even if your ki is almost up, but if 
you have the necessary ki trail for the Ultimate move's 
requirements, you can still perform the move. Also during hyper 
mode if you try to perform a pursue you'll enter Dragon Rush. 
After either the dragon rush or the ultimate move, the ki you 
have is not the red trail, but the remaining ki you had before 
exiting this state. If you don't perform a dragon rush, or an 
ultimate move, then your ki will reach zero, and you'll be 
exhausted, open to serious DMG!

DRAGON RUSH: By doing a SA and then pressing E in hyper 
mode you enter dragon rush, during which both characters 
initially have 4 choices of buttons (square, triangle, cross 
or circle). Each must choose one, and then there are two 
options: either they both press different buttons, and the 
attacker wins, and the dragon rush continues, or they both press 
the same button and the defender counter attacks the attacker, 
and the dragon ruch stops. After this first stage, if the attacker 
won, only 3 button choices remain, and we have two options: either 
they both press different buttons, and the attacker wins again, 
and the dragon rush continues, or they both press the same button 
and the defender completely evades the attackers move, and the 
dragon rush stops. After the second stage, if the attacker wins 
again we have the final stage, where only two button choices 
remain, and we have another two options: either both press different 
buttons and the attacker wins, performing his other ultimate 
move, or in case he doesn't have another one, he just performs a 
powerfull attack (different depending on the character, some have 
specific ones, such as Frieza in his 3rd transformation), or 
both press the same button and the the defender manages to get away 
from the attackers move with just a little DMG. Note that at the 
first stage the attacker has a 3/4 probability of successfully 
continuing the dragon rush, whilst at the second stage the 
probability lowers to 2/3, and at the last stage it lowers to 1/2, 
which means that the probability of the defender stopping the 
dragon rush keeps getting bigger (1/4 -> 1/3 -> 1/2).

ULTIMATE MOVES: These are like super moves, they are also 
unique to each character. There are two classes of Ultimate 
moves, both performed in hyper mode: the one where you have 
to press P+K+E+G and the character will perform a chargeable 
attack, which if it connects initiates the Ultimate move (most 
characters have one of these, with the exception of a few (for 
example Raditz, kid Gohan, Cell Jr. and Saibamen)), or the one 
which is performed automatically at the end of a dragon rush 
(there are fewer characters that have this kind of Ultimate moves.). 
When you enter the first kind of Ultimate moves both characters will 
have a gauge wich will keep filling up over and over again, and a 
counter at the middle. You have to press an attack button at 
the right moment, three times, before the counter reaches zero, 
meaning you'll try to time the button pressing with the filling of 
the gauge, and then there are two options: either the attacker 
fills more gauge than the defender, and the Ultimate move is 
performed in all of it's power, or the defender fills more gauge, 
and the Ultimate either is performed in a weaker version, or is 
even stopped (depends on the Ultimate move, for example Goku's 
Super Spirit Bomb, which if successfull is much stronger than 
if unsuccessfull, or on the other hand Yamcha's Spirit ball attack 
which if unsuccessfull is stopped (with the exception of Tien's 
Neo Ki Blast Cannon, which if unsuccessful is stronger, but drains 
Tien of all of his ki, leaving him exhausted)). The other kind of 
Ultimate moves is automatic, and guaranteed once it starts.


[XXNOTXX]

Notes about the moves and strings section for each character:

-The DMG indicated is the DMG the moves take in the lowest 
 transformation required for the move, and at it's baseline ki.

-Button presses separated by a coma (,) are moves within the same
 string, and the ones separates by a coma and a space( ) are singular 
 moves, or moves from different strings.

-The DMG indicated in a characters dragon rush Ultimate move 
 represents the DMG the entire dragon rush plus the Ultimate move 
 take, but it doesn't represent the DMG that the dragon rush starter 
 you used takes.

-The DMG indicated in a string is the DMG the string will do without
 any kind of power up's to the attack parameter, meaning it's at 
 100% attack.

-When a move is a strong a attack, or a string ends in a strong 
 attack, after the DMG of the move/string you'll see the sign (SA).

-When a move can be charged, if totally charged it's DMG increases 
 aproximatelly 50%, which means it'll do 150% DMG of what it would 
 do if not charged, or partially charged.

-Any physical attack's DMG, when hitting the opponent from his side 
 or back increases aproximatelly 24%, which means it'll do 124% DMG 
 of what it would do if hitting the opponent in his face.

-I'll only list complete strings, unless they can be finished with a 
 Death move, or they open juggle possibilities, or leave the opponent
 vulnerable (meaning that for a character with the string P,P,P,P,K 
 I won't list P or P,P or P,P,P but I'll list P,P,P,P (may end in 
 *Death move's name*), if the character has that particular Death 
 move string.

-Strings that end in death moves won't be listed since they
 are done by simply pressing E at the end of the string, 
 and the DMG they do is simply the DMG of the string plus
 the DMG of the death move.

-Moves that leave the opponent vulnerable (VNB) are a bit rare (each 
 character probably has about 3 or 4), and they only have a short
 window for you to attack after. Examples of such moves is Piccolo's 
 F+P,P,P,P string, or moves such as Vegeta's F+K, or F+P,F+K,P string.
 If you attack after the allowed time the opponent will just fall
 to the ground and the combo will be interrupted.

-Strings that don't combo, meaning that hits don't add on, meaning that 
 from some move on the combo can be blocked, even if the opponent was 
 hit by the previous move, will have hits and DMG listed separately as 
 X+X hits and XX+XX DMG. An example of this is Piccolo's P,P,F+K string, 
 in which the first two hits combo, but the third one doesn't, meaning 
 that the opponent may be hit by the two punches, but still block the 
 last kick. It's parameters will be listed like this: 2+1 hits 87+74 DMG.

-Whenever a basic attack that's referred to in the list outside of the 
 string list appears in the combo, I'll refer to the move by the name 
 I gave it in it's section.


Notes about the fusions sections for the characters that have them:

-All fusion capsules take all 7 slots, so you won't be able to equip 
 any other capsules. But a character still has some skills that the 
 capsule provides besides the obvious Fusion skill, these are referred 
 to as provided skills.

-Some of the character's moves will be changed when a Fusion capsule 
 is equipped, even befores using the Fusion skill, these are referred 
 to as altered moves in the general fusions section.

-After performing the fusion even more moves, or even the same, 
 will changed/upgraded. These are referred to as altered moves in each 
 fusion's separate section.

-All fusions are done like an ultimate move (P+K+G+E in hyper mode)

-Fusions have a required minimum number ki gauges that you have to have 
 filled up with the trail of ki in hyper mode to be able to perform the
 Fusion, but doing it won't use any ki.


Notes about the suggested custom combos section for each character:

-Every combo is done starting in the character's baseline ki for the 
 respective starting form.

-Button presses separated by a coma (,) are moves within the same
 string, and the ones separates by a coma and a space( ) are singular 
 moves, or moves from different strings.

-When you break your opponent's guard by transforming normally if 
 you hit him he'll fall down; but there's a very short window during 
 which he doesn't fall and your attacks are still guaranteed, 
 allowing you to continue your custom combos. That window is at the 
 end of the motion the opponent does, right befores he regains control.
 So every time you are supposed to use a guard break during a custom 
 combo I suggest, you're supposed to hit that window, unless you're 
 breaking into an ultimate move, 'cause in that you just have to do 
 it as soon as possible, or you're breaking into a death move, in which 
 case you can attack at any moment during the motion, and it'll do the 
 same DMG.

-The right moment referred to in the legend with _ , that you need 
 to perform guard cancels within combos is the moment RIGHT after the 
 move starts to charge, preferrably with little to no "shining" in the 
 beginning.


Notes about the Dragon Universe section for each character:

-Any normal event is signed with "->", and separated from the 
 previous/next by an empty lign, but an event that's derivative from 
 the previous one will be signed with a space and then the "->", and 
 won't be separated from previous one, meaning it only happens after 
 the previous one.

-When a place where an event happens is an important place, with a proper 
name, and not a generic one (like mountains or plains), after the first 
time I say where it's located I won't say it again, and I'll only say that 
it happens in the respective place.

-Some events are automatic, meaning they happen automatically when you 
reach their location. These events are marked with "(AUTO)".


[XXCHAXX]

VEGETA

 Vegeta is the prince of the Saiyans, a race of proud warriors. 
Their planet, planet Vegeta, was obliterated by Frieza, because he 
was afraid that their combined might would be more than he could 
handle. The sole survivers were Vegeta, Nappa and the two sons of 
Bardock, Raditz and Kakarot. Every other saiyan was destroyed along 
with the planet, and Vegeta was only a kid when this happened. Vegeta, 
Nappa and Raditz were forced to work for the one who destroyed their 
home and families, while Kakarot was sent on a ship and eventually 
ended up on earth. For years Vegeta had to endure the pain of doing 
Frieza's dirty work, conquering planets for him, until the day 
when they found out of Kakarot's whereabouts and Raditz came to 
earth seeking him. When he arrived he found Goku, a man who was 
nothing like the rest of the saiyans. Goku was the name that an 
old man gave to Kakarot when he found him in his spaceship. Goku 
had no memories of his childhood, and didn't accept Raditz's 
proposal for him to return with him. Raditz tried to force him, 
but ended up killed by Goku and a namekian. Vegeta and Nappa, 
who heard the story of the Dragon Balls through Raditz's scouter, 
decided to come to earth to search for the balls, and kill Goku 
for the death of Raditz. When they arrive they too are defeated 
by Goku and his friends, and Vegeta was humiliated by having his 
life sparred by his enemies; he swore revenge. Later Vegeta went 
to Namek to try and find the dragon Balls, and again encountered 
Goku and his friends there. He ended up having to team up with them 
in order to defeat frieza, but in the end he was still defeated 
by Frieza. He was then wished back to life by Goku's friends, with 
the dragon balls, and transported to earth. Goku remained on Namek 
to defeat Frieza. Some time later Goku's friends try to wish him 
back to life, but Shenron tell him his alive and that he's coming 
to earth. From here on,Vegeta learns to live with the humans, and 
little by little, without him knowing, or wanting to, he begins 
to leave his saiyan nature behind, and eventually will even have 
a son with an earth woman named Bulma: Trunks. At the moment at 
which Goku was supposed to arrive, an unexpected visitor, Trunks, 
comes from the future and kills Frieza who had returned with his 
father to search for revenge. After Goku arrives Trunks warns him 
of the coming of the androids. Vegeta keeps training until he 
finally succeds in becoming a Super Saiyan. Meanwhile Trunks 
returns from the future again to help in the fight with the androids, 
but when #19 and Dr. Gero arrive they are no match for Vegeta, who 
proceeds to destroy #19, and Dr. Gero escapes. While they search for 
him they come to his lab, and watch the reawakening of #17 and #18, 
who are far to strong for Vegeta, and any of Goku's friends. Vegeta 
finds out who Trunks is, his son, and later they both go into the 
Hyperbolic Time Chamber to train in order to defeat the androids, 
and new appeared Cell. When they come out, Vegeta rushes to find 
Cell, who had already absorbed #17, and had become too strong for 
Piccolo, and shows him what an Ultra Super Sayan is. Cell is no 
match for Vegeta, who proceeds to beat the crap out of him..until 
he hears Cell cursing him for not letting him become perfect..and 
then his saiyan pride gets ahead of him, and he decides to let 
Cell absorb #18. After Cell became perfect Vegeta didn't stand a 
chance, and was defeated. Vegeta trains for Cell's tournament, and 
when the day arrives he watches Goku being defeated, and giving up 
his place for Gohan. When Goku's son refuses to fight Cell, he, in 
order to tease Gohan, kills Trunks, and when Vegeta realises that 
his son's dead he rushes at Cell with all his might, bue is once 
again defeated. After the battle things return to normal, and 
Vegeta remains on earth training with his young son.
Some years later a new world tournament starts, and there Vegeta, 
Goku and his friends find out of Babidi and his plan to revive 
Majin Buu.
When Vegeta notices what he has become, he tries to take 
back the cold bloodedness and ruthlessness he once had, and to forget 
his "feelings for his family" and on purpose allows Babidi to 
control his mind. But even this is now not enough, because without 
Vegeta knowing it, he's lost everything that he was as a saiyan, 
except for his pride. He ends up sacrificing himself to try and 
defeat Buu, but he fails. He is then wished back to life to fight 
alongside Goku, and this is when he realises that Goku always was 
his only true friend. In the end he helps Goku defeat Buu, and stays 
with his family on earth.
 
Vegeta is one of the best characters in this game, he has great moves 
and combinations, his ss4 transformation nets him a 140% attack ratio 
(which is the best you'll get along with goku's ss4), and unlike Goku 
he only needs 3 capsules to attain ss4 (ss, ss2 and ss4, while goku 
has kaioken, ss, ss2, ss3 and ss4), which means you'll have more room 
to equip suport capsules, which is a very good thing. His only
downside is his reach, which isn't one of the best.

Vegeta is unlocked by beating him with Goku in Dragon Universe, 
during the saiyan saga.

                   he first used it to defeat and kill #19.
                   
                   Characteristics:

Super Saiyan 2 (SS2) - Vegeta first reached this state after being 
                      possessed by Babidi. It's the second ascended 
                      ss state that Vegeta reached, because he had 
                      already reached Ultra Super Saiyan, during the 
                      fight with Cell, but he gave up using it, 'cause 
                      what it gave him in extra power it took away in 
                      speed, because of the size of his muscles.

                      Characteristics:

Super Saiyan 4 (SS4) - Vegeta reached this state near the end of DB:GT,
                      right after Goku reached it, and thanks to one 
                      of Bulma's inventions.

             F+K,P,P,P(*),E -> 5 hits 435 DMG (SA) (KNG)

Final Shine - This is Vegeta's ss4 specific move. Once you turn ss4 
              Galick Gun will be replaced with Final Shine. It uses 
              1 ki gauge.
              F+E -> 602 DMG (SA) (KNG)

              F+K,P,P,P(*),E -> 5 hits 861 DMG (SA) (KNG)

               it against Majin Buu. Once you turn Majin Vegeta 
               Atomic Blast will be usable (if you have Galick Gun 
               equipped it'll be replaced). It uses 1/2 of a ki 
               gauge.

               P,P,P,P,E -> 5 hits 651 DMG (SA) (KNG)

               combination of 4 atacks (, ending in a ki 
               explosion that'll only work when you've hit the 
               opponent with the first 4 attacks. It uses 2 ki 
               gauges, but you'll recover ki for every hit you land 
               of the move(except the ki blast), so if you manage to 
               hit your opponent with the move you'll end up basically 
               with the same ki you had before you do. But beware, 
               because every hit of the move can be evaded and 
               countered.

Custom Combos:

Custom combos are made by cancelling charge attacks that leave the 
opponent open for more attacks within strings. Custom Combos can 
include juggles within them. Here are some combo starters and finishers,
and the ones I use the most..you can link as many different starters as 
you want with a finisher at the end (if they are linkable), but obviously 
you'll get punished if you go at it for too long, 'cause eventually your 
opponent will recover enough ki to teleport. Another good tactic is to 
custom combo into an ultimate move, which comes unexpected ,and can also 
be cancelled into the same move again if you have the ki required, in case 
your opponent evades.


Suggested starters:

F+P,K,K*_G - This string is the one I use the most as a starter; 
             it's quick, easy to perform, and cool looking too :P.

F+P,F+K,P - This one doesn't need to be cancelled due to it's 
            vulnerability properties. It's pretty quick and strong..the 
            only downfall is that the time window during which it leaves the 
            opponent open is small, and it also leaves you a bit far from the 
            him/her, and so not all moves will connect after it.

B+K,K*_G - This one I don't use it that much 'cause it's kinda slow 
           to start, and it's weak.

F+K - This one is just a simple knee kick therefore it's 
      unexpected and quick, and it doesn't need to be guard cancelled, 
      but it's also really weak and the window during which the 
      opponent is open after being hit is short, so not all attacks 
      will connect (I suggest using combos that start with P).

F+K,F+K,P - This one doesn't need to be cancelled either in order to 
            start a custom combo, and it's quick and pretty strong...
            but really easy to evade.

K,K,B+K*_G - This is one is also good and quick but not as strong as the 
             first one I indicated.

F+K,K,K,F+K*_G - This one is another one that's really good overall.


Suggested finishers:

P,P,P,P,E - This finisher is the most basic one, and it's really one of 
            the best since it's really quick and ends in a death move, 
            so it's pretty damaging. The only downfall is that it requires
            ki usage..but that shouldn't be a problem at the end of a 
            custom combo :P.

F+K,P,P,P,E - This one is basically the same, but it's more damaging, 
              and quicker at the beginning, but it has more hits..and 
              that's not always a good thing since it'll give your opponent 
              more chances to recover ki and turn the tables around.

P,P,K,K,K - This finisher is one of two that i use the most. It's strong, 
            and big (so you'll recover a lot of ki for hitting your 
            opponent) and it opens juggle possibilities at the end, and 
            it's also a P starter combo, so it works with any of the 
            starters.

F+P,P,P,P,P - This is the other one I use the most. It's also strong and 
              big, and it allows for pursuing at the end even when you're 
              in the ground since it hits upwards.

K,K,F+K,K,K - This one is strong and really cool looking, but it doesn't 
              allow for pursuing if you're on the ground.

F+P,P,P,K - This finisher is also really good 'cause it opens juggle 
            possibilities at the end, and with a wider window than the 
            first I indicated..it will allow for powerfull juggles, but 
            it's not that good looking, and juggles won't always be a 
            good thing to use (check next section).


[XXJUGXX]

Juggles:

As far as juggles go, it all depends on your situation; if your 
opponent doesn't have enough ki to evade your attacks by teleporting 
then you should try a juggle, but go for a short one, that allows 
you to pursue, because pursuing is stronger than most basic juggles. 
You can also use cancel in your charge attacks, and transformations to 
widden the window you have to attack, to create very powerfull combos 
within your juggles, originating really powerfull juggles, that can 
come close to killing your opponent..but then again your opponent will 
probably have enough ki to teleport behind you and punish you, 
especially if he's using a Concentration capsule (which I ALWAYS 
recommend using..and always use myself...it cuts the ki expediture 
for evading and teleporting in half :)). In my opinion you don't have 
to worry about juggles too much in this game..just use a short combo 
that ends in a strong attack and then pursue for some DMG, until you 
see your opponent has enough ki to teleport, and then stop pursuing or 
you'll be punished.


Suggested starters:

B+P+K - This move opens a huge window leaving you at ease to perform 
        very damaging juggles, but it's pretty slow and weak.

P+G - This is Vegeta's throw, and it's one of the best in the game 
      because it allows for juggles, and it even has a pretty good 
      window.

P,P,K,K,K - This is a pretty good looking juggle starter, but it doesn't 
            open a big window

F+P,P,P,K - This is one of my suggested custom combo finishers and also a 
            suggested juggle starter because it gives a pretty big 
            window for powerfull juggles.

[XXCAPXX]

Suggested Capsule setups:

My two favorites:

1 - SS
2 - SS2
3 - SS4
4 - Galick Gun
5 - Final Impact
6 - Big Bang Attack/Final Flash
7 - concentration

This capsule setup gives you a pretty powerfull Vegeta transformation 
and move wise, and cuts your ki expediture for teleporting and evading 
in half with the concentration capsule. It's the setup I usually use 
against weaker opponents, mainly because I like to have a wide choice 
of moves. Also you can switch Big Bang Attack with 
Final Flash depending on what you prefer the most...but I always suggest 
using a P+K+E+G ultimate, instead of the dragon rush one, since it's 
really risky to depend on dragon rush. On the other hand you'll do 
more DMG with the dragon rush one...so it's up to you to decide.


1 - SS
2 - SS2
3 - SS4
4 - Galick Gun
5/6/7 - Meditation

This setup gives you a REALLY powerfull Vegeta transformation wise, 
because you start the match by being able to turn SS at once, then 
levelling up to baseline is a breeze, and you can turn SS2, and from 
not even one more ki gauge you can already turn SS4 (all thanks to the 
meditation capsule) which means you'll almost surelly be able to turn 
SS4 right in the beginning of the match, which will give you a great 
advantage. Another GREAT advantage in using the meditation capsule 
is that your general ki expediture is basically cut by 1/3, which 
means that you'll only use 2/3 of the regular ki to perform any ki 
requiring actions. This is the setup I use against stronger opponents 
as it really gives you A LOT of freedom ki wise, and ki control is 
the key to victory :P. But on the other hand this Vegeta only has 
one death move and no Ultimate moves at all, which makes him less 
fun to play when compared to the previous one.


Majin Vegeta:

1/2/3 - Babidi's Mind Control
4 - Galick Gun
5 - Concentration
6/7 - Tonkatsu (fried pork) bowl

This setup is all about majin Vegeta. It gives you Galick Gun, so that 
you have a death move to fight until you become Majin. Then the 
concentration capsule cuts your ki consumption for teleporting and 
evading in half. And then once you become Majin vegeta you use your 
Tonkatsu bowl, to recover back to 3 life gauges so that you can use 
Majin Vegeta with no need to worry about getting beaten quickly.


Super Sayan:

1 - SS
2 - Galick Gun
3 - Big Bang Attack/Final Flash
4 - Concentration
5/6/7 - Meditation

This setup is exactly all about SS..as soon as you begin the battle 
you can turn SS, and there's no need to use another slot for SS2, 
because it only gives a 5% increase in attack. From there you have a 
HUGE advantage in ki usage: since meditation cuts any ki usage by 1/3, 
and concentration cuts teleporting and evading by 1/2, you'll use 2/3 
of the regular ki for attacks and pursuing, and 2/6 of the regular ki 
for evading and teleporting :). And you still have Galick Gun 
(Vegeta's main Death move) and Big Bang Attack, 
which are both done using much less ki than normal (Big Bang Attack 
only uses 3.3 ki gauges and Galick Gun uses 2/3 of a ki gauge). Also 
with this much ki consumption cut you probably won't have ANY trouble 
at all keeping your SS state. Also you can switch Big Bang Attack with 
Final Flash depending on what you prefer the most...but I always suggest 
using a P+K+E+G ultimate, instead of the dragon rush one, since it's 
really risky to depend on dragon rush. On the other hand you'll do 
more DMG with the dragon rush one...so it's up to you to decide.


[XXDRAXX]

Dragon Universe:

Vegeta's DU is one of the biggest ones, along with goku's. He 
participates in all of the sagas, from the saiyan to the buu saga. 
This section will cover the extra detours, or routes you can take with 
Vegeta, not following the original storyline (These detours are extra 
red dots that appear on the map). The first time you go through DU with 
a character you will forcefully have to go along with the original 
storyline, but from the second time on you have certain detours you can 
take, that change the course of the story, and some even bring you 
different endings, and most bring different fights. I'll also list 
events that grant you experience points, or that change the course 
of the story, but aren't shown on the map, or extra events that go into 
detail about story facts, which you aren't forced to go to, in order to 
proceed with the story (these events are shown on screen by a flashing 
point, unless they take place in a city or building; if you enter search 
mode (R1) the events will have an aura, and will be detectable).

>EXTRA DETOURS: None

>LEVELLING UP EVENTS: None

>STORY ALTERING EVENTS: None

have unfinished matters.

->West City: Located Northeast of the center of the map (a little North 
and almost one section East). In this event we watch as Bulma ashows that 
she's been noticing Vegeta training his Final Flash technique (lolol I can 
imagine Vegeta's laughter.."HAAAAAAAAA! HA! HA! HA! HA!!" >_>)

->Mountains: Located one section north from the center of the map, this

the androids, and to wait for Goku to fight them (here we see how future 
Trunks really doesn't know anything about Vegeta's personality lol :P)

->Plains: Located almost one section West from the previous one, this

->Muscle Tower: Located basically in the middle of the snow continent. In 
this event Vegeta encounters Kibitoshin, who asks him if he senses the 
same strange power as he does, and warns him to be careful. It leads 
later on to a fight with Brolly instead of Kid Buu, and allows you to 
continue the story after Buu's defeated, to fight with Gotenks.

[XXLEVXX]

Levelling up Basics:

In Dragon Universe and Dragon Arena modes you gain experience points 
for battles you win, and in certain events in DU. These experience 
points are used to develop you character's statistics. Each Level you go 
up grants you a Z point, which you can use to increase one level for a 
statistic. The amount of experience you need to level up will increase as 
your character's level increases, and the amount of experience you receive 
from battles won will increase as the difficulty level increases. You can 
go up to level 99, which means you'll get a max of 99 Z points; there are 
7 statistics, and each can go up to level 20, which means you'd need 140 Z 
points to max out a character's statistics. So you'll have to choose well 
what you want to level up, because YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET ALL THE 
STATISTICS TO LEVEL 20! Here is the explanation of each statistic:

>HEALTH: As you increase this statistic the amount of health your 
 character has  will also increase. Your character has 3000 HP at level 0
 of this statistic, and each level you increase will give you about 200 HP,
 to a max of 4000 extra HP (which means you'll have 7 life gauges total) 
 at level 20.

>KI: As you increase this statistic the amount of ki your character 
 uses to perform  ki requiring actions will decrease. With ki at level 
 20 you'll have a 1/3 cut in ki usage, meaning you only use 2/3 of the 
 ki you use at level 0.

>ATTACK: This statistic increases the amount of DMG all of your attacks 
 deal to the  opponent. Each level you go up increases by 5% the DMG you 
 deal, to a max of 100% extra DMG, at level 20, meaning you'll do double
 DMG at level 20.

>GUARD: As you increase this one the amount of health you lose from the 
 attacks  that your opponent hits you with will decrease. Each level you 
 go up increases by 5% you defense, to a max of 100% extra defense at 
 level 20, which mean the amount of DMG you take from your opponents 
 attacks will  go down 2.5% each level, to a max of 50% cut in DMG, 
 meaning if you're at level 20 in this statistic you'll only lose half 
 the HP you'd lose if you were at level 0.

>ARTS: This one increases the amount of DMG your death moves and ultimate 
 moves deal to the opponent, regardless if you have attack levelled up or 
 not.  Each level you  increase gives you a 2.5% increase in DMG, to a total 
 of 50%  max at level 20. This  means you can raise attack to max to have a 
 100%  increase in DMG, and still increase arts to max to have more 50% 
 increase in DMG for death moves and ultimate moves!

>ABILITY: As you increase this statistic the effectiveness of the item 
 capsules you  use will increase. For example, if you intend to equip and 
 use the Tonkatsu bowl,  for each level you increase of this statistic the 
 amount of HP you recover by using  the item will go up by 30; so if you 
 have  Ability at level 0 the item will give you  2000 HP, but if you have 
 it at  level 1 the item will give you 2030 HP, and so on.  This applies to 
 all  kinds of item skills, meaning that support skills will also be 
 included.

>COM: This statistic measures how well the computer controls your 
 character in Dragon  Arena mode, so you'll only need to increase this 
 one if you intend to have someone  fight your characters by giving him 
 your password, or if you intend to fight him  yourself in the same manner. 
 The higher the level of this statistic the better the CPU controls your 
 character.

Closing Comments:

Vegeta is my personal favorite character in the saga, and also 
in this game, with Piccolo really close behind him. He's a great 
character, both gameplay wise and story wise, who deserves a lot 
of attention :P.

I hope this FAQ proves helpfull and/or fun to those who read it, 
and it sure helped me improve my gameplay by writting it, and I 
had a lot of fun :P.

I'd like to thank Dimps for creating the first REALLY GOOD DBZ 
GAME, and this time around IMO they couldn't have made much 
better :)
