                           3.<<<(---Goku's Background---)>>>
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    Long ago there was a planet called planet Plant, which was occupied by two 
    races: the Saiyans and the Tuffles. The Tuffles were an advanced race with
    big cities and highly-developed technology. The Saiyans were strong savages 
    who lived in wastelands attacking the Tuffles at times. Because of the 
    Tuffles great technology, they were able to fight against the naturally 
    strong Saiyans when needed. Then one day, the Saiyans banded together 
    and attempted to overtake the planet. The war raged on for many years without
    anyone clearly having the advantage. Advanced weaponry took on brute strength
    resulting in a stalemate; that is until a full moon appeared. If a Saiyan 
    looks at the full moon, they transform into a giant ape-like state called 
    Oozaru. In this form their already great power grows tenfold. Luckily for 
    the Tuffles, this event happens only once every seven or eight years. After 
    this transformation had occurred, the Saiyans easily crushed the Tuffles out
    of existence.  From then on the planet was called Planet Vegeta, named after 
    the Saiyans ruler King Vegeta. But there was a problem. With their 
    arch-nemeses gone, they had no one to fight but each other. Soon they met a 
    race called the Arconians. These are people responsible for supplying the 
    Saiyans with the technology they are so famous for using. In return for this 
    technology the Saiyans would conquer planets for the Arconians, who worked 
    for a being named Frieza. Lord Frieza was known as the strongest and most 
    powerful being in the universe. He enslaved entire races, and forced them 
    to do his bidding or be destroyed. When Frieza found out about the Saiyans, 
    he saw their enormous power and used them as mercenaries to take over other 
    planets for him. All Saiyans belong to special classes, which is passed down 
    by blood types. When a lower class Saiyan is born, they are sent away to other 
    planets, programmed to take it over when they get strong enough. Because of 
    the ability to transform into an Oozaru, this usually didn't take very long. 
    Saiyans with the higher classes are kept on Planet Vegeta for more direct use. 
    One day, Frieza summoned Prince Vegeta who was around five years old at the 
    time, and sent him to a dangerous planet along with the Supreme General of 
    the Saiyan Army, Nappa. King Vegeta knew Frieza had to be stopped and 
    revolted with several of his most loyal men. However, they were no match for 
    Frieza and were defeated effortlessly. Around this time Frieza realizes how 
    much stronger the Saiyans are becoming, and their great potential. Out of 
    fear Frieza blows up the entire Planet Vegeta with a single energy blast 
    from his finger. 
    
    Moments before Planet Vegeta explodes, a ship with a low level Saiyan baby 
    flies by to Earth. This baby's name is Kakarot. As Frieza destroys Planet 
    Vegeta, he gets careless and doesn't notice this ship go by. However, an 
    even stronger being lurks in the background watching, and this being is 
    Frieza's brother. Although he notices the ship, decides to let Frieza clean
    up his own mess.
    
    When the Saiyan baby, Kakarot, lands on Earth, he is found by an old man 
    named Gohan. Even though Kakarot is a baby, he has strength that could easily 
    kill an ordinary human. Gohan is a master of the Martial Arts and tries 
    to raise the Saiyan baby, soon naming him Goku. Gohan drops Goku on his head 
    from a great height. Fortunately, Goku lives, and even better, his Saiyan 
    programming becomes scrambled. Goku trains hard and eventually has a son, 
    who he names Gohan after his adoptive grandfather.
    
    When several of Goku's friends are killed by two of the surviving Saiyans, 
    he is forced to go to a planet called Namek for help. On this planet there 
    are items called Dragon Balls. When all seven Dragon Balls are collected 
    together, a Dragon god will appear and grant you three wishes. Unfortunately, 
    Frieza is after the same items and already has five of them in his possession. 
    To make things even worse, the prince of all Saiyans named Vegeta is also 
    after the Dragon Balls. After many battles, much destruction, and successfully 
    gathering the Dragon Balls, Goku finally faces Frieza. When Goku is no match 
    for the super villain he is forced to go to his last resort, and his most 
    powerful attack. Goku nearly destroys the entire planet but Frieza survives 
    with few wounds. Proving he cannot be beaten, Frieza kills Goku's best friend 
    Krillin, and fatally wounds a close friend, named Piccolo. Seeing this happen 
    enrages Goku so much that he undergoes a transformation legend of the Saiyans; 
    a super Saiyan. While in this new level he grows far stronger than Frieza and 
    easily defeats him. From then on Goku was a Super Saiyan. 
    
    Note: All of the information I have stated above about the Saiyans comes from 
    series American dubbed version, and is slightly different from the 
    original Japanese version but all of the essensils are the same.

                          4.<<<(---SuperSaiyan Look---)>>>
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    Whats a SuperSaiyan without the look.
    
    Transgressing oneself and becoming a Super Saiyan is triggered by an event of
    incredible despair and anger. In the moments leading up to the change, the 
    eyes become unfocused and the body rattles like an earthquake is welling up 
    inside – after which, the transformation occurs like an instantaneous 
    maelstrom of energy! Supposedly, one must have a power level in the 
    multi-millions beforehand, and also have a pure heart 
    (good, evil, or otherwise…) during the time of transformation. The power 
    increase is relatively unknown, as it depends on the Saiyan, and how much 
    training they have undergone.
    
    A Super Saiyans look is severy changed. The hair stands up and turns a bright
    yellow. and there are sparks of electricity arround him and if the change is 
    brought on by severe anger (like in Goku's case) the eyes go blank and the 
    Saiyan looses all control of himself and only thinks about one thing. 
    Complete and utter destruction of the enemy with no mercy.
    There is also a super Super Saiyan which is tougher than a Super Saiyan but 
    weaker than a Super Saiyan 2. In this state the hair spikes further on end 
    and is more defined. The aura for this state is rough, and much more energetic 
    than that of the previous level. Muscle mass increases significantly. 
    (Vegeta and Future Trunks during the Cell Saga are the only ones known to 
    have ever reached this in between level)

                           5.<<<(---Basic maneuvers---)>>> 
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    
    I want to thank green_dragon21 for this section.
    
    
    Now its time for me to tell basic maneuvers about the game. I mostly use the
    classic controller because of the easier game play and some because of better
    responsivnes , but I will try my best to not mention specific buttons from 
    the type i use. P.S. I will try to include my opinion to help you choose 
    which attacks are better suited to your type of game play.
    
    Fast movement: Also known as teleporting. You press the block button right 
    before an attack hits you.
    In my opinion this is the most uefull best dodge teknique in the game.
    It may take a while to get used to it but not to worry once you got it down 
    you'll be untouchable (litteraly)
    
    
    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.
    Although it sounds like a good move it is hard to pull of and wasts ki.
    
    
    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.
    This is a counter that will be less effective the more you use it (against 
    humans that is) it will get extremmly predictable and should be used wisely
    but other wise against the computer i will take a while but it too will 
    predict you using it but only in those ridiculaously long battles.
    
    
    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.
    This is one of the most used tecniques in the gaem and is great for both 
    chasing and runnig away. And if your max power mod is almost up this is 
    a great way to get it in before it runs out.
    
    
    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.
    I relly dont get the point of this and have no advice on the matter.
    
    
    Reflecting ki: In this game reflecting ki is a little different from before. 
    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.
    This is very useless the only reason to block or even launch a small ki blast
    that does virtually no damage and the only use i can think of is when you far 
    appart and your opponent is charging this will stop him and break the charge
    of course this will not work on bigger opponents like Broly and Great Appes.
    
    
    Vanish Attacks. After you send the enemy flying, press the ki button and you 
    will appear behind them and attack them.
    This is a great way to hain together attackes for biger damage and when you 
    send tham flying they are left wide open for a B1 or B2 or even UB.
    
    
    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 and personaly i dont bother.

    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    
    Blast 1: Give Me Energy! 2 blast stocks
    This move will increasse the damage your other moves do and each time you use 
    it it will increasse the power even more.This is a great move to quickly 
    finish the match.
    This was brough to my attention by dyl45881.
    
    
    Blast 1: I'm Getting Excited! 2 blast stocks
    
    This is a good blast 1 move. When you do it, it will charge your body and 
    temporarily boost all of your stats.
    
    
    Blast 2: x20 Kaiken Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    
    Goku's signature move. He will fire a big red beam of energy.This is one of 
    the coolest moves in the game. 
    Damage: 7320-8100 
    
    
    Blast 2: Meteor Combination 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: 7520
    
    
    
    Ultimate Blast: Spirit Bomb
    
    Goku fires off a huge spirit bomb. If it Hits the opponent it chages
    the scenery to he total destruction looking one. 
    This move is good if you do it when your close to the enemy because its 
    huge and its nearly unblockable. This move goes great with Give me Energy!
    Damage: 16040

    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    
    Blast 1: Wild Sense 2 blast stocks
    This is one of the best moves for characters who cant e bothered to dodge.
    It will autoatically make you dodge and appear behind your oponent.
    This was brought to my attention by master_ninja_of_the_shadows.
    
    
    Blast 1: Now I'm Mad! 2 blast stocks
    
    This is a good blast 1 move. When you do it succsesfully it will take you to 
    max power mode.
    Great if your low o ki and your oponent is almost finished. It will definetly
    turn the tide your way. 
    
    
    Blast 2: Super Kamehameha 3 ki bars
    
    Goku's signature move. He will fire a big red 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: 8520-12420. 
    
    
    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. Damage: 8540. I 
    
    
    
    Ultimate Blast: Angry Kamehameha
    
    Goku fires off a huge one handed kamekame wave. 
    This move is good if you do it when your close to the enemy because its 
    huge and its unblockable. Damage: 15120.

                             8.<<<(---Strategies---)>>>
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    I think im good but defenetly no the best so if anyone has found better 
    strategies i will post tham here and give you credit for tham.
    You can reach me at Albjoker25@yahoo.com
    
    SO there are two ways you can go about this.
    One is if you picked Base Goku (Mid) at hes beginging form in which case the 
    whole strategy is arround his B2 the x20 Kaiken Kamehameha and his 
    unstoppable finisher. The Spirit Bomb. When you start the battle you want to
    get some space between you and your oponnt. Then immidiatly charge your ki.
    There are some cases when you realy dont want your oponent to charge their ki
    like Syn Shenron (which i hate by the way because of Blazing Storm) so you 
    shoot ki blast at that just to break the charge than charge and immideatly 
    attack and while they are getting up back of and recharge. Do this until you
    win or choose to go to the second strategy for this character.
    The second strategy is to do the strategy above this until you get one Blast
    Gauge full and turn to a Super Saiyan. Now your moves revolve arround your
    finisher as that is the quickest way to victory.This way the only two moves 
    you really need are the super kamehameha and the angry kamehameha. You 
    should use Now I'm Mad! If you are backed into a corner but otherwise
    dont because it waste what i would thake to launch two UB on only one.
    
    
    Ok in both cases Wild Senses will come in HANDY!!! This is one of the best 
    B1's in the game so i strongly recomend using it no mater your strategy.
    
    
    
    This is just my opinion because i personaly like to stick to long range 
    beams and finishers without too much hand to hand.

                          9.<<<(---Potara Build---)>>>
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< 
    
    Ok this section might seam kind of short but thats because as I stated 
    previously I maily focus arround fast ki build up and wave attacks.
    And again if anyone has a better build i will post it here and give ou credit.

    This build was mail to me by: dyl45881
    
    Secret Measures
    Earth Power
    
    On planet Earth your stats are boosted and Secret Measures will let you
    do Give Me Energy immediately. I love this set up because when Goku uses
    the Spirit Bomb after three Give Me Energy he does more damage than any
    other character in the game.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    This build was given to me by jason_r1888
    
    Essence of sight (2)
    attack up 1 (1)
    Defense up 1 (1)
    Ki power up 1 (1)
    Super up 1 (1)
    Rising fighting spirit (1)
    Goku type (1) 
    
    This build is a balanced build, and it works really well for me, but tends 
    to be a up close melee type which I prefer.The essence of sight is 
    excellent for up close combat and dodging without penalty to your energy.
    The rising fighting spirit grants you max ki at the start of each battle 
    which can give you an advantage early on by allowing you to use his galack 
    gun, and final galack gun at the beginning of the fight without charging up.
    The ki +1 is for Vegeta's slow charging and the goku type is for close combat 
    as well. Under the right circumstances (Max power mode, and sayian soul) 
    his UB Dirty fireworks can do right at 20k damage.
    20k damage from his UB will only be seen when used against characters with 
    weaker defense. Against a Lssj Broly with defense +3 it does around 12k
    
     
    
    Most of these I got of the message boards and twiked a little. But as you 
    can see they all revolve around attacking strategies.
