    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!
