                             3.Vegeta's Background
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First I will start with some information for his father then him, his wife
    and the Vegeta jr. that appears in the last episode. Because i just like him.
    
    
    Vegeta Ou (King Vegeta): 
    The king of all Saiyans and the father of Vegeta. He is probably the 
    strongest Saiyan in his time but is definitely seen as the strongest Saiyan. 
    King Vegeta realizes that Frieza has no further use of the Saiyans and no 
    longer needs them around. After trying to attack and kill Frieza, King Vegeta 
    is killed with a single blast.
    
    Vegeta:
    The son of King Vegeta, Vegeta started out as an evil character but when he 
    learned Frieza had killed his father and all of the Saiyans except for a 
    small hand full he tried to gather the Dragon Balls on Namek to with for 
    immortality. Vegeta didn't get his wish but he did help a lot in destroying 
    Frieza. He was eventually killed by Frieza but only in his final form. Vegeta 
    was wished back soon after and saw the very end of the fight between Goku and 
    Frieza. Vegeta saw Goku had become much stronger than him and gone 
    Super Saiyan and Vegeta hasn't stopped training since. After Frieza is beaten 
    he waits for Goku's return from Namek on Earth and slowly becomes one of he 
    good guys. He starts a calm life with Bulma and his son Trunks and later his 
    daughter Bulla. As Vegeta's years go by, he get's older but still trains and 
    fights when needed. Vegeta marvels at how powerful Goku has become, not to be 
    out done Vegeta survives the process of becoming Super Saiyan 4. Vegeta and 
    Goku also fuse several times in the series.
    
    Bulma :
    A teenager who is the first person from outside Mount Paozu to meet Goku. 
    She befriends Goku and has him tag along as a bodyguard. She's the daughter 
    of Dr. Briefs and is a genius. She invents the Dragon Radar, the Micro Band, 
    and Fighting Jackets, just to name a few things. In Dragon Ball and the first 
    half of DBZ, she's smitten by Yamcha, but she eventually loses interest in him 
    because he's too fickle. She actually falls in love with Vegeta because she 
    notices that he's a very lonely man that needs someone. They have 
    two children, Trunks and Bra.
    
    Vegeta Jr. :
    He fights against Goku Jr. in the very last World Tournament shown in the 
    series. Vegeta Jr. can go Super Saiyan just like any other Saiyan descendant. 
    His abilities are shown mildly so it appears as though he has not very 
    many powers. Vegeta Jr. is the son of one of Bulma's descendent.
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              4.Vegeta's Look
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In this early form he wears the blue undergarments typical of early saiyans.
    He wears a scouter on his left ear and has the tail as a belt. This allows 
    him to transform in the great appe state with a full moon. When this happens
    he transforms into a giant sized Vegeta tha looks like a Appe and the tail 
    is now freely movable intead of tied arround him. Not much of a change 
    really.The armor looks exactly the same.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              5.Basic maneuvers 
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    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.

                                  6.Vegeta (Scouter)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Blast 1: Explosive Wave 1 blast stocks
    This move is one of the best in the game for both spamming and getting out
    of a tih situation. I recomend always using it but be carefull because 1
    blast gauge may not seem like a lot but it adds up and soon your left with 
    nothing.
    
    
    Blast 1: Saiyan Soul 3 blast stocks
    
    This is a good blast 1 move. When you do it, it will charge your body and 
    temporarily boost your attack and speed.
    
    
    Blast 2: Galick Gun 4 ki bars
    
    Vegeta's signature move. He will fire a big red beam of energy. You can charge 
    this move up by holding up and the ki button. When fully charge it doesent
    do a lot more damage, but it takes awhile to fully charge it. So dont bother.
    Damage: 8830-9160. 
    
    
    Blast 2: Final Galick Cannon 3 ki bars
    
    Vegeta'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 a little less damage as an uncharged Galick Gun.
    Damage: 6610. I 
    
    
    
    Ultimate Blast: Dirty Fireworks
    
    Vegeta flys toward the oponent and does this cool looking combo and than 
    throws him in the air and points up and makes him explode. THis attack takes
    too much time to charge and doesent make up for it in the damage making it 
    pretty useless.
    Damage: 12230.
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  7.Vegeta Scouter (Great Appe)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Blast 1: Explosive Wave 1 blast stocks
    This move is one of the best in the game for both spamming and getting out
    of a tih situation. I recomend always using it but be carefull because 1
    blast gauge may not seem like a lot but it adds up and soon your left with 
    nothing.
    
    
    Blast 1: Howl 3 blast stocks
    
    This is a good blast 1 move. When you do it, it will charge your body and 
    temporarily boost your attack and Defense and take you to max power mode.
    
    
    Blast 2: Chou Makouhou 3 ki bars
    
    Vegeta's Appe form signature move. He will fire a big red beam of energy 
    from his mouth. You can charge this move up by holding down and the ki button. 
    When fully charge it doesent do a lot more damage, but it takes awhile to
    fully charge it. So dont bother.
    Damage: 7480-8240. 
    
    
    Blast 2: Chou Makouhou Barrage 3 ki bars
    
    This is a consecutive blast form of the first attack nd shoots 4 balls of 
    energy out of the mouth. Personaly I think it's not that good.
    Damage: 3800.
    
    
    
    Ultimate Blast: Super Galick Gun
    
    This is like a giant Galick Gun that Vegeta shoots and it's prety wide and 
    long and fast but the charge up time without a custumized character will 
    kill you.
    Damage: 3760.
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  8.Strategies
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All of these relly on you having transformed into a Great Appe I will add
    more for normal state Vegeta at a later time. Hopefuly Soon!
    
    As anyone will tell you i'm more of a beam and long range fighting kind of 
    guy but thats really not were this for of Vegetas strenght's lie. SO
    I would recomend playing on the fact that he is huge and you can go blow for 
    blow with just about every charater in the game. And when you charge you cant
    be disturbed. This is a grear advanage and ther are two ways you can go about
    this Way One:
    You make good use of your size and pummel the other guy sensles. And only 
    stick to Blast 1's because they will keep you from dying and use How sparely
    as of its 3 blast gauge requirement. But explosive wave is good for getting
    away to use Howl undisturbed. And also a thing I like to do is to store up
    4 blast gauges and use Explosive Wave then Howl and given I just used 
    Explosive Wave the enemy is in the perfect range for a UB and it will be 
    almost imposible to dodge.
    
    Way Two:
    This really down plays the size of Vegeta as a Great Appe and will mainly 
    focus on the enervy attacks. In this strategy Explosive wave and Howl are 
    your best friends. All you have to do is a combo that will result in tham 
    being stuned giving you time to fly away. Then charge your ki and go do a 
    hand to hand to engage your oponent and in the middle of the combo hit the 
    buttons to quickly back off and before the oponent has time to escape shoot
    the B2. And near the end use Howl and get real close and finish tham off.
    
    This is great against the cmputer but i would not recomend it against another 
    human as they will see the pattern and counter it if they are worth anything 
    as a player.
