[1.] Introduction
Hello, I am Oreno5267, this is my fifth time writing an FAQ after
having wrote my other four FAQs. Seeing and reading many FAQs of
authors, their format and writing styles, I had became intrigued as
to how they have spent time on additional changes, organizing sections,
and exploiting different games. This character FAQ is on Hirudegarn
of Budokai Tenkaichi 3 of Dragonball Z. 
English is not my first language, you have to bear with me.

[2.] Character profile: Hirudegarn

(Note:Character profile is taken from Character Reference mode of Main menu.)

Character Reference

Voice Actor - Robert McCollum

Character Introduction

Hirudegarn is the beast that once rampaged across the planet Konats.

It was once a mere statue of a demon that watched over the planet, but an
evil wizard named Hoi used his magic to turn it into the beast, Hirudegarn.

Thanks to the hero Tapion, Hirudegarn was split into two parts, and the
halves were sealed inside the bodies of Tapion and his brother.

Tapion was also sealed inside a music box, but Hoi was able to find it,
and on Earth he brought back the beast.

Hirudegarn is every bit as strong as he appears, and has the ability to
transform into a mist, making him invulnerable to most attacks.

He does have one weakness: the sound of the legendary flute of Konats
can seal him away.

Chi-Chi's Commentary
Such gigantic monsters do exist.
[3.] Pros and cons of Hirudegarn
When choosing a character to play with, it is always important to keep in
mind to know what that specific character is capable in every aspect before
a match begins, there is no exception that a human player may or may not know
in order to pick a character again. Now, on to Hirudegarn's pros and cons.

Attire descriptions:

- His body is mostly composed of yellow and brown, with a dark brown chest.
The yellow parts of his body look like armor. There are purple parts on his
arms and legs; showing from front and back. On his forehead, between the two
horns there is a red part which continues to on his back. Two black horns that
protrude from his head. Really long black tail with the tip of the tail
having the shape of a triangular prism. Above his shoulders, he has a giant
version of traditional Saiyan outfit, at end of shoulder pads it is a bit
angled upward. He also has two black wings similar to that of Cell(Perfect),
only super-sized. Beneath the black wings are smaller white wings.

- Palette swap. The yellow parts become silver and the color of purple areas 
seem to be slightly pale purple. The red part seen on his forehead and back
are now light blue and the brown of his torso is silver.

[6.] Tips & Strategies
- Hirudegarn's speed is really slow, do not use dash to pursue
your opponent instead use dragon dash.
[7.] Custom Potara Setups
You may choose your own potaras to equip, these customs are as
to how Ultimate Gohan should be equipped.

Custom 1~

1. King Kai's Training -{4}
2. Ki Power Up 2 -{2}
4. Combo Master -{1}

AI Type:(optional)

For the setup suggestions objecting Hirudegarn feel free to
e-mail me, I will include them into this FAQ, also please state
the desired name you wish to be credited for the source.
[8.] Red Potara Password
Red potaras are different from the ordinary potara, they will
grant enhanced power damage, ki speed rapidly rising, and health is
automatically regenerated which makes it really, really special, they
cannot be acquired by basic means like the items in the game used
to customize your fighters in 'Evolution Z'. Go to 'Data Center' from
the main menu then put the following code in 'Password Input Screen'.
Down below is the red potara password for Hirudegarn.
