1) Introduction
- - - - - - - -

The legendary Z fighters & the most evil of villans in the galaxy return in 
spike's latest creation in the Tenkaichi series, Dragon Ball Z Budokai 
Tenkaichi 3 on the ps2. New moves, new stages, new characters, & a whole new
soundtrack to boot, what more could you want from the latest DBZ game? I've 
decided to get some character FAQ's done due to my recent haitus period from
walkthroughs (many of which still need to be finished!) whilst i've also been
doing other projects & getting chance to enjoy some awesome & dare i say 
classic retro gaming ^_^

This walkthrough is a character FAQ & due to the numerous new moves, & tweaks
to the tenkaichi combat system, the FAQ has been primarily composed for the
purpose of getting the most if not the best out of your chosen character/s.

The character FAQ is for newcomers, beginners, & experts alike & I do hope you
will find it a useful resource for this amazing game, so let's get started

                          KAME-HA-ME-HAAAAAAA!!!

2) Character profile:- Burter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

(Note:Character profile is taken from the character reference libary)


Burter is a member of Frieza's elite fighting unit, the Ginyu force.

The tallest member of the Ginyu force, Burter also boasts to be the
fastest in the universe & he's accordingly dubbed himself "blue typhoon"
Having being summonned by Frieza to aid in the search of the Namekian
Dragon Balls, Burter & his partner Jeice enter in to battle with Goku.

Working together Burter & Jeice are able to perform purple comet flash
a special combination to make the most of their unique abilities.

 
- - - - - - - - - - -
3) Why choose Burter?
- - - - - - - - - - -

Burter, (dispite the Ginyu force's ridiculous poses) is one of the fastest
characters in the entire game, his rush attacks (square button) are extremely
fast & can quite eaisly amount you to many hits causing up to 20,000 damage!
Burter is a large character but dispite this he has some excellent moves such
as his trademark 'space mach attack' with a great hit & damage count while
also using Burter's incredible speed. I would highly recommend Burter as one
of your DBZ characters, as once the effort to max him out has been put in you
will reap the benefit of awesome speed & power that will barely or never
allow your opponent wether CPU or human to catch their breath, making 
effective use of 'sonic sway' & Burter's ultimate 'Purple comet attack'
in which his partner in crime Jeice takes part in can deal your enemy a
brutal blow, the only real downside i find to Burter is his lack of moves 
which could have been slightly better but it's hardly something that would 
make him an undesireable character & don't let it stop you. As is common with
most characters you are unfamilliar with you should practice using Burter in 
the 'ultimate training' mode which is selectable on the game's main menu. It's
a shame Burter wasn't around in DBZ for longer & that he was 'one of the bad
guys' I for one found him quite an interesting character & until Goku showed
up on Namek Burter was most likely the fastest in the universe (Sonic the
Hedgehog roll over! -_^)

5) Recommended Z items==
- - - - - - - - - - - -

You are very welcome to choose your own potara's to equip, here i've simply
given a recomendation of how Burter should be equipped to make full use of
his moves & abilities.



Custom 1

A) Mirage
------------------------------------
B) Master Roshi's Training
------------------------------------
C) Hatred of Saiyans
------------------------------------
D) Attack up 1
------------------------------------
E) Defense up 2

Custom setup 1 allows Burter to gain a slight advantage in both attack & 
defense, Burter's stamina is also increased by 10,000 thanks to the Master
Roshi's Training potara which will give him that extra edge of endurance
during the more grueling battles such as mission 100. Hatred of Saiyans
allows for a rather fast replenishment of Burter's Ki during a battle
except when he is just about to enter max power mode, this will save
the time of having to charge Ki almost giving you a break allowing for
more time to fully utilize Burter's other techniques. Lastly Mirage allows
you to avoid barrage type attacks such as Cooler's finger Blitz barrage by
successfully avoiding one barrage type energy blast with high speed movement
(teleport) with the circle button you will dodge all of the barrage allowing
for a speedy counter attack & an opening in your opponents method of attack.







Custom 2

A) Master Roshi's Training
-------------------------------------
B) Super up 1
-------------------------------------
C) Attack up 1
-------------------------------------
D) Dende's Healing Ability
-------------------------------------
E) Defense up 1

This is an interesting setup you could use & i found it very useful, it
boosts Burter's attack, defence, & blast power while giving him the same
not too costly health boost however with Dende's Healing Ability. Burter
can slowly recover his health! As there are very few other real options of
restoring lost health/stamina (unless your character regenerates or in
some cases transforms to their next stage) this game, this makes for a good
way of surviving combat. Try to implement a hit & run stratergy when Burter's
health looks like it may give out so as to gain back precious lost health &
resume the fight! 




Custom 3

A) Attack up 1
-------------------------------------
B) Ki power up 2  
-------------------------------------
C) Master Roshi's training
-------------------------------------
D) Evil pride

Firstly this setup makes use of Burter's rather slow ki charging, it will 
accelerate & give him a chance to use his special moves more quickly, with
yet again the usual stamina boost for good measure of endurance & the new
potara here being Evil Pride which when guarding will allow for all damage
dealt through major attacks & energy blasts etc to be halved & is especially
useful for those hard to escape attacks such as Omega Shenron's blazing storm
which covers a wide area with very little time to get away from the targeted
area & possible danger zone. A more cautious set up that focuses on the use of 
Ki.


Other Potara's you may find useful for Burter include:

>- Style of the strong

>- Rising fighting spirit

>- Gigantic power

>- Sparking plus

6) Tips & stratergies==
- - - - - - - - - - -

> Make full use of the incredible 'space mach attack'& perform a combo or even
  Burter's throw (press the X button twice) then as your opponent flies
  through the air or falls backward from a smash, immediately follow up with
  it or if you have enough Ki use 'purple comet attack' for major if not fatal
  damage followed by a combo of about 45-65 or so hits!! As if that wasn't
  enough space mach only costs two ki levels & has straight tajectory homing 
  to a degree.

> Utilize the sonic sway technique & master it, this can give Burter the 
  opportunity to counter attack. Sonic sway allows you to rapidly avoid a
  flurry of punches & kicks followed up with an automatic counter attack!

> Confuse your opponent by varrying the rapid attacks such as a flying kick
  & then launch a devestating heavy finish or powerful ground slash.

> The special move After image comes in handy in a brutal battle when it
  appears your opponent is gathering ki or about to unleash an energy wave,
  perform the technique to automatically teleport out of harms way. A 
  forewarning that against area attacks such as Omega Shenron's blazing storm
  this technique won't get you out of the fray so use the move wisely. This
  move will also stack, for example you have 4 blast stock & you use the 
  command twice, you will be able to automatically avoid damage up to two 
  times! 

> Burter can enter max power mode immediately with SP fighting pose 2,be sure
  to have stunned the opponent with a heavy finish, then you can launch a 
  dragon dash closely followed by any other move of your choice. The reason
  stunning is effective is due to Burter being vunrable for a brief moment 
  while he perfoms the pose.

7) Burter's red potara password ==
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Red Potara are special from ordinary potara, they grant super enhanced 
properties & cannot be obtained by normal means like your standard potara
used to customize your fighters through evolution Z. In order to obtain
the red potara you must "cheat" so to speak, go to the 'data centre' on
the main menu & then input the following password:
   

 
 q*qR8 1kghT Nh9kS !v
 NdMxP 4SG8T PNbfm j(

Now on the character select screen under password character you will have
a Burter, but not just any Burter oh no! This is a super Burter with stats
pushed far beyond normal limits, have fun trashing any opponent with the
blue typhoon.

I should also mention that you will only be able to use red potara characters
in duel & ultimate battle modes, which does take a little of the fun out of it
but it's another extra feature you can use to see Burter at his most powerful!

8) Frequantly asked questions(getting to know you)==
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
 
   Q.How was Burter defeated in the anime?
   
   A. When the Z fighters went to Namek they eventually went toe to toe
      with the Ginyu force, Goku arrives to save the day & defeats reccome
      with ease, Jiece & Burter fight side by side in an attempt to defeat
      Goku but to no avail thanks to Goku's training at 100 times Earth's
      normal gravity, Goku used a low power Kaoiken technique to surpass 
      Burter's speed & he is eventually defeated & killed. In otherworld 
      Burter & Jeice take on Tien who is training with Yamcha, Chaotzu, & 
      formely Piccolo but Tien emerges the victor defeating both with his new
      found strength, thanks to training on King Kai's Planet.

   Q. What does the 'After Image' technique actually do?
      
   A. Quite a few character's in the game have this technique this useful 
      technique, after image allows you to perform an instant
      high speed movement (or teleport as it is also known) however it
      will only activate if you press the right commands as you are 
      about to be hit with an attacks such as a rush or a beam, that said
      i wouldn't advise you use it to evade a 'super spirit bomb' or moves 
      that cover a wide radius however it will be effective to get out of 
      dragon rushes which the computer AI has a habit of using frequantly & 
      sometimes unexpectedly. Bear in mind that to use this technique you will
      need 2 blast gauges filled to execute the technique. This technique also
      stacks, meaning that if you had say four blast stocks & you perform the
      technique you could actually avoid incoming blasts up to 2 times!
