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:- Chiaotzu
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

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


Originally he was a student of the Crane Hermit, a rival of Master Roshi.

He is a fellow pupil to Tien. He adores Tien and always goes everywhere with 
him. His specialty is his psychic ability, During his match with Krillin and
when Tien was fighting Goku, he made full use of it and tormented them by 
paralyzing them.

He has a big heart, and in the fight with Nappa he threw his own life away
and self destructed to save Tien.

The truth is he only has one hair on his head.

3) Why choose Chiaotzu?
- - - - - - - - - - -

Chiaotzu at first glance appears a frail character & not someone you would
pick due to the way he's usually perceived, apperances can be very deceptive!
Chiaoutzu's attacks are rapid & relentless, he can rack up a large combo in 
the mear blink of an eye. Opponents may well underestimate him...big mistake!
Sure Chiaotzu has weaknesses (as does every character) & these are his low
defense & his really low health capacity, that's nothing to worry about though
all thanks to 'Evolution Z.' Chiaotzu's normal Ki blasts are fast & he can 
even immobolise his opponent utilizing his psychic powers, keeping many a 
mighty character in check with the proper element of suprise. His ultimate
attack can be a double edged sword though, as it leaves Chiaotzu with 
dangerously low health but as said before using 'Evolution Z' & the custom
setups contained within this FAQ you will find ways to benefit this close to
suicide technique. Chiaotzu is great for beginners, you will be able to grasp
the basics of combat up to some more mid-advanced combat tactics while not 
having the drawback of a difficult to control character. I'd say give him a
shot and see what you think, personally Chiaotzu has suprised me with his
apperance in the Tenkaichi series & he has alot of potential that could take
you far, be it Vs battles, 'survival', 'Sim dragon', or even the 'Dragon 
World Tour.' Good luck and i hope you enjoy using Chiaotzu as much as I have.

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 Chiaotzu should be equipped to make full use of
his moves & abilities.



Custom 1

A) Master Roshi's Training
------------------------------------
B) Attack up 2
------------------------------------
C) Defense up 1
------------------------------------
D) Super up 1
------------------------------------
E) Rush blast 1

Chiaotzu's first custom setup revolves around first increasing his low health,
this is done with Master Roshi's training potara which will boost his 
low health by 10,000. With that taken care of next in this setup his attack
is increased, as is defense & the power of Chiaotzu's special moves. Finally
rush blast 1 makes use of his ordinary Ki blasts making them faster and a 
little more powerful.









Custom 2

A) King Kai's training
-------------------------------------
B) Attack up 1
-------------------------------------
C) Defense up 1
-------------------------------------
D) Super up 1
-------------------------------------

Chiaotzu's next setup though costly, focuses on boosting his low health
while giving more power to his defense while still increasing power to his
special moves, the benefit here is the extra addition of more health for
greater endurance & fighting performance.





Custom 3

A) Eternal Life
-------------------------------------
B) Combo master
-------------------------------------
C) Attack up 1
-------------------------------------
D) Super up 1

The last of Chiaotzu's custom setups, will allow for his health to steadily
be restored over the course of battle. Costly as it is, it allows for
restoration of lost health with there being very few ways to recover it
unless your character has a special move that can regenrate his/herself
this instance being Chiaotzu he can't unfortunately. This setup is also
at an advantage with Combo master as it will ensure Chiaoutzu's combo's
deal greater damage, which on top of attack up 1 & super up 1 adds to the
benefit of Chiaotzu becoming more of a threat toward the opponent/s



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

>- Active heart

>- Rising fighting spirit

>- Warrior's will

>- Sparking plus

>- Light body

>- Proof of friendship

>- Draconic aura


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

> Telekinesis is an unblockable attack & will prevent your opponent
  from moving briefly, use this time wisely to launch a psychic rock
  throw or Dodon ray, be sure you use this in close quarters otherwise
  it will be a waste of your black stock at any other range.

> Alternate your attack patterns with Chiaotzu's irregular attack pattern
  & don't allow your attacks to become readable otherwise you may well
  find yourself being countered & dragon smashed before the battle really
  begins...


> During a rush attack, Chiaotzu can quickly use his throw to knock his
  opponent back granting the opportunity for an instant Dodon ray or a
  combo follow up using ordinary ki blasts & finishing up with a Z burst
  to add more mayhem to the combo!


> 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!

7) Chiaotzu'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:
   
&hz9M bm3%2 pF+8W 7@
B)0BV p#YKv @0d9L 9*
 
Now on the character select screen under password character you will have
a Chiaotzu but not just any Chiaotzu oh no! This is a super Chiaotzu with 
stats pushed far beyond normal limits, have fun trashing any opponent with the
Psychic emperor.

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 Chiaotzu at his most 
powerful!

8) Frequantly asked questions(getting to know you)==
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
 
   Q. Is it possible to beat Nappa in Dragon history with either Tien
      or Chiaotzu?
   
   A. (laughs) Yes actually, the reason I laugh is because i've done it
      myself many times. It takes a little patiance & frequant use of thier
      special moves, in Chiaotzu's case i find that Psychic rock throw works
      very well as Nappa usually sets himself up for the damage by aiming to
      counter or dragon smash you. Dispite Nappa being one of my favourite 
      characters, it's funny to see him lose to either Tien or Chiaotzu...
      just a shame it didn't happen in the anime & manga eh??

  Q. Oh wow!! so what actually happens when you defeat Nappa with either of
     them?

  A. Not a great deal to be honest, all you will see is a short scene with
     lamenting in their mighty victory & of course you have the satisfaction
     of saying you won a supposedly "impossible/difficult" battle ^_^
