3- Introduction qw03

Hi! The name is Martin!
I decided to make a Vegeta FAQ because there was none and
lots of players like him! Vegeta has a personality that irritates some folks but
it's the reason why he's so funny! I especially like
Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta (Second Form) for his speed,
Super Energy Wave Volley and Explosive Wave. But playing any of them is fun!

Before I continue, the descriptions come from the DBZ:BT2 Encyclopedia!

4- Vegeta (Scouter) qw04
-------------------

This is Vegeta when he first came to Earth. Still in the service of Frieza, he
wears a scouter typical of the tyrant's henchmen.

Having learned of the Dragon Balls through a transmission from Raditz, Vegeta
came to Earth. He hoped to obtain the power of immortality, that he would use
that power to usurp Frieza.

At this point, Vegeta cannot sense power levels, and has to rely on his
scouter. He displays the cold ruthlessness of a pure Saiyan warrior, and
attacks Goku and the other Z-fighters without mercy.

After his defeat on Earth, it became clear to him that he relied too much on
his scouter, and he began learning to sense power levels on his own.

When he fought Dodoria on Planet Namek, Vegeta was so confident in his new
ability that he deliberately destroyed his own scouter.

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
One of the best defensive move of the game, with only 1 Blast Gauge use!
It even blocks some beam attacks!
5/5

Saiyan Soul (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
Boost Ki attacks and melee power. Usefull if you have extra Blast Gauge.
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Galick Gun (2)
L2 + Triangle
Classic Beam attack. Can be charged up for 2 seconds.
3/5

Final Galick Cannon (3)
L2 + Triangle + Up
A good rush attack. He always says the same annoying sentence tough...
3/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Dirty Fireworks (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
Another yet artistic rush attack. More powerful than Final Garlic Cannon,
but leaves you without Ki.
4/5

---------
5a Vegeta qw05
---------

After the battle on Earth, Vegeta fights against Frieza on Planet Namek.
In order to defeat him, Vegeta is forced to join Goku and the Z-fighters.
After using the Dragon Balls to escape Planet Namek, he began living with
Bulma's family on Earth.

Vegeta's goal is to defeat Kakarot, and toward this end he began to train
tirelessly every day. At some point during his training, he developed a
relationship with Bulma, and Trunks was born.

Once having the cruel and fierce personality of a Saiyan warrior, he has
mellowed a bit since living on Earth. However, because of his pride and his
shame at becoming soft, he displays a cold attitude toward others, even his
son Trunks, who came from the future.

Much like Goku, he does not have much interest beyond fighting. He spends his
days training, and never holds any sort of "real job". This begins to annoy
Bulma to some degree, but Vegeta pays her no mind. For him, beating Goku is
all that matters.

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
It's it again! Vegeta loves it. But 4/5 this time, look at next one!
4/5

Full Power (3)
L2 + Circle + Up
That's the reason why 4/5 on previous skill. You want to save up for this one.
Puts you in MAX Power Mode and multiple boosts.
Only problem, it costs 3 Blast Gauge. Worth the cost tough.
5/5

Blasts 2
--------
Galick Gun (2)
L2 + Triangle
The same Beam attack again. Can be charged up for 2 seconds.
3/5

Super Energy Wave Volley (2)
L2 + Triangle + Up
One of Vegeta classic moves. Hard to completely dodge from times to times.
4/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Super Explosive Wave (4)
L2 + Triangle + Down
Boom! Vegeta lets his Ki ravage everything around him! Just make sure your
opponent is close enough not to get away from it. I'd block it.
4/5

----------------------
5b Super Saiyan Vegeta qw06
----------------------

This is Vegeta's Super Saiyan form.

Vegeta drove himself to the breaking point, furious at his inability to
surpass Kakarot no matter how fiercely he trained. This, however, proved to be
the key, as it was his inner rage that allowed him to unlock his Super Saiyan
abilites for the first time.

When Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan, his outward appearance changes and
his power level rises dramatically, but his personality is also affected. He
becomes hyper-aggressive and overly self-confident when in this state.

The first time he appears in this form, he unveils his signature move, the
"Big Bang Attack".

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
Better get used to it!
5/5

Finish Sign (1)
L2 + Circle + Up
I'd call it a cheap version of Saiyan Soul. Lesser boost at lesser price.
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Maximum Flasher (3)
L2 + Triangle
New Beam attack! And no need to charge it! And better look also.
4/5

Amazing Impact (3)
L2 + Triangle + Up
Just a normal Rush attack.
3/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Big Bang Attack (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
Less time to dodge compared to beam attacks. This Ball attack can hurt,
but leaves you without Ki.
4/5

---------------
5c Super Vegeta qw07
---------------

This is Vegeta as an ascended Saiyan, having achieved a level between Super
Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2.

Vegeta's defeat at the hands of Android 18 served as a painful lesson that
Super Saiyans were not invincible. Therefore, he reasoned, there must be a
level beyond Super Saiyan. After a year's worth of severe training in the
Hyperbolic Time Chamber. he was finally able to achieve this form.

When transformed into "Super Vegeta", his entire body become bigger, but he
does not have the lightning-like aura associated with Super Saiyan 2.

The first time Vegeta fought in this form, he used his unprecendented level
of power to unleash a new signature attack, the "Final Flash".

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
Guess you find it useful now? I hope for you!
5/5

Saiyan Soul (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
Same buff, same cost. And nothing more to say.
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Big Bang Attack (4)
L2 + Triangle
From Ultimate Blast to Blast 2. Now chargeable for 2 seconds.
But you lose the delay it had as Ultimate Blast. 
3/5

Spirit Breaking Cannon (3)
L2 + Triangle + Up
A normal Rush attack, but I like its look.
3/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Final Flash (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
A Ultimate Beam attack. Hard to dodge, but leaves you without Ki.
4/5

-----------------------
6a Vegeta (Second Form) qw08
-----------------------

This is the somewhat older version of Vegeta that appears after the Majin Buu
Saga.

After the Cell Games, he continued his brutal training regiment in the hopes
of surpassing Goku, and as such he has become even stronger.

He's still as prideful and obstinate as ever, but now that he has a family,
he's not as cruel as he used to be, and at times he's even acted to protect
total strangers.

Later, in DragonBall GT, he changes his hairstyle and grows a mustache,
suddenly taking an interest in his appearance for some reason. However, when
his new daughter Bulla informed him that the mustache didn't suit him, he
wound up shaving it off.

In the anime there are scenes of Vegeta driving his daughter Bulla to go
shopping, which means that somewhere along the line he was able to get his
driver's license.

Blasts 1
--------
Afterimage (2)
L2 + Circle
Activating this has no instant effect. But you will dodge automatically the
next hit if you are open and not trying to do anything.
It's nice when you've been stuned and you shouldn't be able to normally dodge!
3/5

Saiyan Soul (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
Duh!
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Galick Gun (2)
L2 + Triangle
It's it. Again. But lessened cost. Cheapest Galick Gun.
3/5

Super Energy Wave Volley (1)
L2 + Triangle + Up
Now we're talking big. It costs 1 Ki Bar! And it has a low delay time!
You can almost spam it! And don't forget that below 2 Ki Bars,
Vegeta generates some Ki without having to do anything special!
5/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Big Bang Attack (4)
L2 + Triangle + Down
Back to Ultimate Blast again! At lessened cost! As you can see,
Second Form Vegeta knows how to use his Ki wisely.
5/5

------------------------------------
6b Super Saiyan Vegeta (Second Form) qw09
------------------------------------

This is Vegeta as a Super Saiyan from the Majin Buu Saga onward.

He has continued training, and his basic fighting strength is even higher than
before.

In Dragon Ball GT, he demonstrates his new "Final Shine Attack" when fighting
Super Android 17.

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
No comments.
5/5

Saiyan Soul (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
No comments.
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Final Flash (4)
L2 + Triangle
You remember it from a previous form? It was good? It's no more!
It takes a 2 seconds before charge for Vegeta to take position.
Only then you can charge it for 2 seconds. You know what?
Stick to Super Energy Wave Volley! The fisrt move with a score below 3/5.
1/5

Super Energy Wave Volley (1)
L2 + Triangle + Up
Yeah! It's that move again! Still cheap and a little more powerful!
5/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Super Explosive Wave (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
It's back! Still leaves your Ki empty, but I think the radius got bigger.
And damage too, of course!
4/5

--------------------------------------
6c Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta (Second Form) qw10
--------------------------------------

This is Vegeta in his Super Saiyan 2 form.

In an effort to buy Goku the time he needed to form the Spirit Bomb, Vegeta
transformed into this state during the battle with Kid Buu on the Supreme
Kai's planet.

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
Should I really write something here?
5/5

Wild Sense (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
If you did like Afterimage, you wil love this one! Basicly the same thing,
except that this time, if you are close to your opponent, Vegeta will reappear
and strike your opponent.Now chase him and punish him for trying to hurt you!
5/5

Blasts 2
--------
Galick Gun (3)
L2 + Triangle
I'm sick of this move... Always chargeable for 2 seconds,
but it's so easy to dodge compared to Super Energy Wave Volley!
3/5

Super Energy Wave Volley (1)
L2 + Triangle + Up
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
5/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Final Flash (3)
L2 + Triangle + Down
For an Ultimate Blast, it's really cheap! And still hard to dodge.
5/5


---------------
7- Majin Vegeta qw11
---------------

This is the form Vegeta takes after allowing Babidi's magic to draw out his
full potential.

Following the Cell Games, Vegeta subjected himself to a brutal training
regimen. When Goku returned from Other World, however, Vegeta was shocked to
find that there was still a gap between them.

In order to surpass Goku, and that he might fight the way he used to, without
regard for family or friends, Vegeta deliberately let himself fall under
Babidi's spell. The result is Majin Vegeta.

Even under the influence of Babidi's spell, Vegeta disregards the wizards
orders and challenges Goku to a duel.

In this form, his body is surrounded by a lightning-like aura, and his power
level is comparable to Super Saiyan 2.

Blasts 1
--------
Saiyan Soul (2)
L2 + Circle
Should I really write something here?
3/5

Hi-Tension (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
Here's Saiyan Soul little but smarter brother.
Buff is lessened BUT it gives you 2 Ki Bars. Can be useful, depends on you.
4/5

Blasts 2
--------
Final Impact (4)
L2 + Triangle
New Beam attack. Can be charged up to 2 seconds.
3/5

Big Bang Attack (4)
L2 + Triangle + Up
The second move with a score below 3/5. Why?
Vegeta takes a whole second BEFORE you can charge it for 2 seconds...
2/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Final Explosion (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
This skills bears its name very well. Not only Vegeta's Ki explodes,
he goes with it! It lets you survive with a pixel of life,
but used wisely, you should kill you opponent with it.
Over 20,000 damage and is UNBLOCKABLE. Should kill your opponent.
If not, grab the opportunity to get up first and strike your opponent...
5/5

------------------------
8- Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta qw12
------------------------

Unlike Goku, Vegeta cannot turn into the giant golden ape on his own. However,
with the help of Bulma's custom-built Blutz Wave Generator, Vegeta is still
able to achieve the Super Saiyan 4 transformation.

This state has the most outward changes of the various Super Saiyan forms.
Vegeta's hair is black, his upper body is covered with red fur, and his nature
becomes wild.

Vegeta rarely fights in this form, but when he does, he unleashes a powerful
finishing move called the "Final Shine Attack".

Blasts 1
--------
Explosive Wave (1)
L2 + Circle
If you didn't like this move from the begining, you are doomed!
5/5

Finish Sign (2)
L2 + Circle + Up
Saiyan Soul little brother. But at the cost of 2 Blast Gauge.
Stick to Explosive Wave I guess. Unless you don't need it.
3/5

Blasts 2
--------
Big Bang Attack (3)
L2 + Triangle
Yeah, it's it again. But it's not as worst as last time you saw it.
Decent skill by now.
3/5

Spirit Breaking Cannon (3)
L2 + Triangle + Up
Long time no see! Damage is now a bit higher.
4/5

Ultimate Blast
--------------
Final Shine Attack (5)
L2 + Triangle + Down
This move looks very nice, (Oooh! Shiny!) is hard to dodge
but it takes out all your Ki.
4/5

9- FAQ qw13

Q. Why didn't you include Great Ape Vegeta?
A. Look at next question.

Q. Why didnt't you include Baby Vegeta?
A. Look at previous question.

Q. Why didn't you include Vegito/Gogeta?
A. Look at either the first or second question please!

Q. I can't do my Ultimate Blast! Help me! Please?
A. You have to be in MAX Power Mode. Have your 5 Ki Bars and a Blast Gauge,
then charge up until you get it.

Q. Will you put a password section?
A. I might put one. Not sure. Not really needed.
You should customize your character like you want, not to my taste.

Q. Can I do anything with your FAQ?
A. Nope. Go back to Legal Stuff section and read it. Again...

Q. Which Vegeta is the strongest?
A. Depends on your style. Melee players will prefer the Majin or
Super Saiyan 4 and even Super Vegeta.
For myself, it's the Super Saiyan 2. Good at melee but not strong.
It's just about shooting Super Energy Wave Volley
at the right moments.

A. IT'S OVER NINE THOUSANDS!!!
Q. What?!?
