    2. Introduction
    Well hello. This faq was written by me green dragon, and is the first faq 
    I've ever written in my entire life. So I wanted to write about a game that I 
    liked and I chose this game, and my favorite character to write about,Goku. I 
    hope you enjoy this faq and find it helpful. By the way this faq is for Goku 
    (end). You can contact me at greendragon15@mail.com
    Now for some info on Goku: Goku is the star of all of the Dragon Ball sagas. 
    He saves the world many, many times. He is saiyan and the strongest one at 
    that. In Dragon ball he is sent to earth to destroy it. He gets bonked on the 
    head and turns into a good guy. He is dipecticed as having an " I wont give 
    up" attitude.  In Dragon ball he has a tail and has the ability to transform 
    into a giant ape. When he is in his giant ape form he goes out of control and 
    starts to destroy everything. 
    In Dragon Ball Z he no longer has a tail. The first saga, the saiyan saga, 
    starts off when his biological brother Raditz comes to earth to see how 
    things are going. Goku, Raditz, and Goku's old enemy Piccolo fight. Goku Ends 
    up sacrificing is life to kill Raditz.
    When Goku dies he is sent to other world. He of course wants to get stronger 
    so he travels on snake way to find King Kai who will make him much stronger. 
    King Kai teachers Goku the spirit bomb and the kaioken. When Goku gets wished 
    back to earth, he meets up with Nappa and Vegeta. Goku easily dispatches 
    Nappa, but has a much harder time with Vegeta. After the fight Goku lets 
    Vegeta escape, and all is well... for a while anyway. The Z-warriors find out 
    about a powerful being named Freeza who wants the power of the dragon balls 
    and goes to Namek to find them. To stop Freeza, Gohan and Krillan go to try 
    to stop him. Vegeta is also there trying to gather the dragon balls for 
    himself. After Goku heals from the fight with Vegeta he is sent up to Namek 
    to destroy Freeza. After Many fights with Freeza's henchmen, Goku fights 
    Freeza and transforms into a Super Saiyan. Goku supposedly kills Freeza, then 
    he gets the heck off of Namek.
    After The battles on Namek Goku returns to earth where there is a saiyan 
    there, named Trunks, from the future. He would like to talk to Goku and warn 
    him about how powerful androids are going to arise and destroy the earth. 
    Trunks also tells Goku how he has a rare heart disease and how he will die 
    because of it. Luckily Trunks saves Goku's life with medicine from the 
    After three years of training the androids finally arrive. Goku is sick just 
    as predicted, and the medicine saves his life. After many events Goku is back 
    up to tip-top shape and is able to fight the super android, Cell. Goku fights 
    cell, and dies when Cell self destructs. After Goku's death, Goku helps Gohan 
    from beyond the grave to defeat Cell.
    Many years later, an evil wizard, Babidi, came to earth to revive a very evil 
    monster named Buu. He succeeds in doing so, and Buu appears. After Vegeta is 
    turned Majin by the evil wizard, Goku is knocked out and Vegeta goes to fight 
    Buu. Vegeta self destructs, but Buu is still alive. When Goku comes to, 
    Vegeta is dead and Buu is still alive and thriving. After the evil part of 
    Buu seperates from the good part, Buu now becomes Super Buu. When this 
    happens, Gotenks fights him, but is absorbed. When Gohan tries to fight him, 
    he is also absorbed. Goku and Vegeta arrive in time to fuse into the super 
    warrior Vegetto. After dominiating Super Buu, Vegetto lets Super Buu absorb 
    him so the he can free his friends. When the Super Warrior is absorbed, he 
    defuses back into Goku and Vegeta. The two saiyans then free their friends 
    and they get out of there.
    After those events Super Buu then turns into the reckless Kid Buu. After much 
    fighting, Goku is able to make a spirit bomb to destroy Kid buu.
    Thus ends Dragon Ball Z. Now for GT I won't go into that. 
                                  3. Basic maneuvers 
    Now its time for me to tell basic maneuvers about the game. I mostly use the 
    classic controller to play this game, but I will try my best to tell how to 
    do these maneuvers in all the control methods.
    Fast movement: Also known as teleporting. You press the block button right 
    before an attack hits you.
    Z- Counter: Press up and attack the moment and attack hits you. You will 
    block the attack and warp behind the opponent and attack them.
    Z-sway: While being blocking attacks press the ki and block button. This will 
    cause you to dodge many fast attacks and counter with an attack of your own.
    Dragon Rush: Charge up ki and dash. This is when an aura envelopes your 
    character and you dash at high speeds at the opponent. This is useful for 
    getting close to the enemy fast
    Dragon Homing: After you send the opponent flying with an attack, dash and 
    you will home on to them. Other than that it's the same as a dragon rush.
    Reflecting ki: In this game reflecting ki is a small bit different. You have 
    to hold block, then right before the ki blast hits you press left or right. 
    This only works on small ki blast though. For ones that are big and are fully 
    charged up, press block right before it hits you.
    Vanish Attacks. After you send the enemy flying, press the ki button and you 
    will appear behind them and attack them.
    Perfect smash: Hold the attack button, and exactly when you start to flash 
    white let go. You will the teleport ford and attack. This is basically a 
    perfect move to do, but its hard to do and takes plenty of practice. 
                                  4. Base Goku
    Ok now comes the part where I rate the moves and describe the moves. But I 
    will only rate the blast attacks and not the melee moves. Why? Because the 
    melee moves seem harder to rate due to them being in a combo, and you have 
    more control over them. Also, I will rate the melee attacks after rating all 
    of the blast moves with each of Goku's forms. This will save both time and 
    space. After going back through the faq I decided to add damage. The damage 
    is done to a non custom Vegeta. And Lastly, I will rate the moves out of five 
    stars (*)
    Ok here it goes.
    Blast 1: Instant Transmission 2 blast stocks
    This move teleports Goku behind his opponent. I really don't find it that 
    useful. I guess it can be used to dodge big blast attacks and appear behind 
    the opponent. I rate this:*
    Blast 1: Wild Sense 2 blast stocks
    This is a good blast 1 move. When you do it, it will automatically warp 
    behind the opponent when they attack you. I rate this: ***
    Blast 2: Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    Goku's signature move. He will fire a big blue beam of energy. You can charge 
    this move up by holding down the ki button. When fully charge it does a lot 
    of damage, but it takes awhile to fully charge it. Damage: 7020-10200. I rate 
    this: *** 
    Blast 2: Meteor Smash 3 ki bars
    Goku's rush move. He flies at a high speed and does a pretty cool looking 
    combo on the victim. This rush actually flies kinda far, so it can work from 
    distances. It does as much damage as an uncharged Kamehameha. Damage: 7510. I 
    rate this: 
    Ultimate Blast: Super Spirit Bomb
    Goku fires off a huge spirit bomb. If it Hits the opponent Goku goes super 
    saiyan and gives it and extra boost, then he warps the heck out of there. 
    This move is good if you do it when your close to the enemy because its 
    frickin huge and its unblockable. Damage: 16320. I rate this: ****
    Melee moves:
    Attack, ki: Heavy finish
    Attack, attack ,ki: Kiai cannon
    Attack, attack, attack, ki: Flying kick
    Attack, attack, attack, attack, ki: Heavy Finish
    Base Goku final Judgment:
    Well he's not too fast, not too strong. He's pretty average, so I Give him 
    On an extra note if you jump off of the ground and charge up a ki blast, you 
    will fire a destructo disc
                                  5. Super Saiyan Goku
    Blast 1: Wild Sense 2 blast stock
    Same as above
    Blast 1: Saiyan Soul 3 blast stock
    Goku slightly powers up. This raises his melee and ki attack power. I rate 
    this: ***
    Blast 2: Super Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    I don't understand what's so super about this Kamehameha. This is basically 
    the same as base Goku's. Damage: 7380-10740. I rate this: *** 
    Blast 2: Super energy wave volley 3 ki bars
    Goku fires off many large ki blast. I really don't like this move for some 
    reason. In this game they seem way easier to dodge than in the last game. 
    4950. I rate this: **
    Ultimate Blast: Warp Kamehameha 
    Goku charges a Kamehameha and then he warps. I really like this move because 
    I have never seen this move miss, and its unblockable. The only down side is 
    that it does a little more than a fully charged Kamehameha. Damage: 12040 I 
    rate this: *****
    Melee moves:
    Attack, ki: Flying Kick
    Attack, attack ,ki: heavy finish
    Attack, attack, attack, ki: Rolling hammer
    Attack, attack, attack, attack, ki: Kiai cannon 
    Super saiyan Goku Final Judgement:
    This goku is pretty neat. He's semi fast but not all that powerful. I will 
    rate him ****
                                6. Super Saiyan 2 Goku
    Blast 1: Instant Transmission 2 blast stocks
    Same as above
    Blast 1: Full power 3 blast stock
    This makes Goku go into his Max power mode. This is an ok blast 1 I guess. I 
    rate this: **
    Blast 2: Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    The famed blue beam. Damage: 7800-11280. I rate this: ***
    Blast 2: Meteor smash 3 ki bars
    The combo that looks like base Goku's combo. Damage: 8000. I rate this: ***
    Ultimate blast: Super Kamehameha
    Ok this move is what I call super. Its like 4 times the size of a Kamehameha 
    and does nice damage. Damage: 15120. I rate this: ****
    Melee moves:
    Attack, ki: Kiai cannon
    Attack, attack ,ki: Heavy Finish
    Attack, attack, attack, ki: Rolling Hammer
    Attack, attack, attack, attack, ki: Heavy Slash
    Final Judgment on Super Saiyan 2 Goku:
    This is my favorite form of Goku. He's fast, He's kinda strong. But, he 
    doesn't really have a diverse moveset(basically having two kamehamehas) 
                              7. Super Saiyan 3 Goku
    Blast 1: Instant Transmission 2 blast
    Same as above
    Blast 1: Power up to the Very Limit
    Basically the same as full power, but he gets boost in more stats I rate this 
    Blast 2: Super Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    Same description as above. Damage: 8160-11820. I rate this ***
    Blast 2: Super Explosive Wave 4 ki bars
    Goku envelopes himself in yellow energy that damages all those that are close 
    by. Its cool but has no range. But, its good of the enemy is getting ready to 
    attack you. Damage: 9060. I rate this: ***
    Ultimate Blast: Dragon Fist
    SS3 Goku's rush. When it hits Goku turns into a big golden dragon. It has 
    good range, and looks cool if that helps. And it's pretty strong too. Damage: 
    16010. I rate this: ****
    Melee moves:
    Attack, ki: Kiai cannon
    Attack, attack ,ki: Flying Kick
    Attack, attack, attack, ki: Heavy Finish
    Attack, attack, attack, attack, ki: Rolling hammer
    Final Judgment on Super Saiyan 3 Goku:
    This is my least favorite Goku for some reason. He's the fastest of Goku's 
    forms but he's close. He's also kinda strong. He also charges up slower, it 
    seems. I'll rate him ***
    Melee attacks:
    Kiai cannon: I really like this move a lot. Goku pushes back the enemy with 
    force like powers it looks pretty cool and it's good to end a combo with.
    Heavy Finish: This move is what I like to call a gut buster. Goku hits the 
    opponent in the stomach, and they bend over in pain. This stuns enemies and
    is good to continue a combo with.
    Flying Kick: Goku flies in the air a little and kicks the opponent in the 
    head. Ouchies. 
    Rolling Hammer: Similar to heavy slash. Without the gut buster, but if you 
    press the ki button again he will hit the opponent again, and if you press 
    the attack button Goku will warp behind the opponent and attack them.
                                 8. Strategies.
    I'm not the best fighter at this game, and I don't have the best strategies. 
    So if you want to add any strats email me at greendragon15@mail.com
    Base Goku:
    With Base Goku the objective is simple. Try to get a spirit bomb. Then once 
    you're in max power, try to Combo the opponent, then when max power mode is 
    almost out hit them with a gut buster and do a spirit bomb. But if you don't 
    feel like taking that risk, just get as close to the opponent as possible 
    then fire off the spirit bomb. The spirit bomb is way hard to dodge, and its 
    unblockable. That's pretty much what works for me.
    Super Saiyan Goku:
    Ok Warp Kamehameha is unblockable, and it warps. Total domination with that 
    move. But of course you're not always gonna have that move right? Right. So 
    you should melee combo and end with a kiai cannon. And after the kiai attack 
    warp behind the enemy for more damage. I wouldn't recommend using the energy 
    wave volley attack, but that's just me.
    Super Saiyan 2 Goku:
    Ok this is personally my favorite Goku. To me he seems like he is the fastest 
    Goku. With this form a usually love to melee attack. I usually never try to 
    get his ultimate blast super Kamehameha. Why? Because its blockable and it 
    takes to much time to get. Also you have a regular Kamehameha which is just 
    fine for a blast. As for his melee its basically the same as Super Saiyan 
    Goku. And don't forget to toss in a meteor smash every one and a while. Also, 
    with this form of Goku when you do a dash attack he will do two kicks unlike 
    the other forms of Goku. This often confuses opponents because they mostly 
    block the first hit and not the second so you can get extra damage on them 
    that way.
    Super Saiyan 3 Goku:
    Ok this Goku isn't my best, but he's not too bad though. The thing that I 
    don't like about him is that he charges up pretty slowly. With him I just 
    melee attack and I sometimes use explosive wave. That's pretty much all I 
    have for him.
    Ok after I wrote this faq I tried out Super Saiyan 3 Goku again, and he is a 
    lot better than I first thought. He is way fast, but like I said earlier he 
    does charge up slowly. But he isn't that bad though.  
                                  9. Potara
    Now its time where I list potara combinations. Since I'm not that good with 
    these, this is the part where you come in. Send your potara combo's to me and 
    a description and I will add them here. Of course I will credit you.
