    [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.
    
    Pros:
    High health
    Has brickwall effect
    Largest giant character in the game
    Cheap and inexpensive B1's, both use one blast stock
    
    Cons:
    Really high Destruction Point
    His speed is even slower than those of Great Apes
    Dark Eyes may be considered spammable

    [6.] Tips & Strategies
    ==========================
    *Tips
    - Hirudegarn's speed is really slow, do not use dash to pursue
    your opponent instead use dragon dash.
    *Strategies
    ==========================
    [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.
