    Goku
    (CV : Masako Nozawa, JP / Sean Schemmel, US)
    
    First appearing as a child in the popular TV-anime
    Dragonball, Goku continues his leading role as
    an adult in the follow-up series Dragon Ball Z.
    
    Born on Planet Vegeta, our hero began his
    life as the Saiyan "Kakarot".
    A low-class warrior by birth, the infant Kakarot,
    second son of Bardock, was sent to Earth just
    before Planet Vegeta's destruction.
    
    After arriving on Earth, however, he met with an
    unexpected accident which cost him his memory.
    He was found by a kindly old man named Gohan,
    who took the boy into his care and raised him as
    his very own son.
    It was Gohan who gave young Kakarot the name
    by which he is known now-"Goku".
    
    Since his first encounter with Bulma and the
    ensuing quest to find the seven magic Dragonballs.
    Goku has encountered many fierce opponents
    who have pushed him to test his limits in both
    body and spirit.
    He has even started a family with his wife, Chichi.
    As Goku has grown, however, so have the stakes
    for which he fights.
    The fate of the entire universe is now rests on Goku's
    shoulders as he battles increasingly powerful
    adversaries such as Frieza, Cell and Majin Buu.
    
    Always willing to sacrifice himself for the greater
    good, Goku has felt the sting of death two times,
    first in the battle against his brother Raditz,
    and again during the explosive climax of the battle
    with Cell.
    But not even death can stop Goku!
    Because of his heroic efforts, he is allowed to
    continue his training in Other World until such time
    as he can be wished back to life by the power of
    the Dragonballs.
    
    After defeating the evil Kid Buu and bringing peace
    back to the universe, Goku departed with
    the reincarnated form of Buu, the young boy Uub,
    in order to train him. Together, Goku and Uub
    can continue to push their strength to the edge
    of their limits and beyond.
    
    Later, in the Dragonball GT, Goku is returned to his
    boyhood form by the Black Star Dragonballs,
    and must embark on a journey that spans
    the universe in order to save the Earth.
    
    Since first transforming into a legendary Super
    Saiyan during the ferocious battle against Frieza
    on Planet Namek, Goku has been able to push
    himself to ever-higher levels of power through
    intense training.
    
    He has demonstrated these powers in battle,
    transforming into Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3,
    and the ultimate Super Saiyan 4.
    
    Among Goku's favored special-techniques are
    the Kamehameha Wave, the Spirit Bomb, Kaio-Ken,
    and Instant Transmission.
    He is also quite adept at using the techniques of his
    friends, such as the Destructo Disc and Solar Flare.
    
    Goku's greatest-and perhaps only-weakness is
    his inability to stand up to his wife ChiChi,
    who constantly hounds him to quit his "karate-bum"
    lifestyle and get a real job.

    My comment : Goku is a very balanced character, making him suitable for
    beginners. Actually, Goku is not that strong, but because of his Spirit Bomb
    technique, he can deal so much damage to his opponents. Spirit Bomb is one of
    the strongest move in this game.

           Rating      : 3.5/5
           Comment     : Good move! But it takes some time before you can turn
                         into Kaio-ken mode, and maybe the enemy will take this
                         opportunity to attack you with his most powerful attack

           Comment     : A good move. The ki costs less than Kamehameha but the
                         damage is greater than Kamehameha. The bad part is when
                         Goku dashes towards the enemy, although he can deflect all
                         normal ki blasts he will be vulnerable to other Finishing

           Ki          : 36000
           Rating      : 3.5/5
           Comment     : A great finishing move, but it's not too effective against
                         hard enemies since it can be easily dodged.

           Description : Dash towards the enemy, kick the enemy and make the enemy
                         fly, dash again and punch like a hammer using both of

           Comment     : A V. Good move. The ki costs less than Kamehameha but the
                         damage is greater than Kamehameha. The bad part is when
                         Goku dashes towards the enemy, although he can deflect all
                         normal ki blasts he will be vulnerable to other Finishing
                         Moves such as Kamehameha, Full Power Energy Balls
    Super Finishing Move : Spirit Bomb :
           Description : One of the most powerful attack! Can only be used while
                         Goku is in this form. Creates a very large energy ball,
                         and then throw it to the enemy
           Damage      : 32000
           Ki          : 100000
           Rating      : 3.5/5
           Comment     : Higher damage and still slow, enemy can dodge it easily if
                         they're far from you. But if it hit, the enemy will cry :)

    8. Combos Using Goku
    ===============================================================================
    1. (Make sure you do this while Goku is in the Kaio-ken mode) I will do the 4 
    squares combo and then press X for a hard hit (making the enemy stunned for a
    second), then I'll press the 4 squares combo again and then press X again (do
    that until the gauge under the mini-map becomes red), then do the 4 squares
    combo again but this time DO NOT press X, press square and charge it, so the
    gauge lights up until red. Goku will send the enemy far away, before the enemy
    fall down you should do the Kaio-ken Attack move/ the Kamehameha move.
    Rating : 4/5
    
    2. (Make sure you do this while Goku is in the MAX POWER mode) Do the 4 squares
    and then press X, quickly before the enemy recovers you should do Spirit Bomb.
    (You can also do the 4 square-X combo as many as you want as long as the MAX
    POWER mode isn't over, but the failure rate of this combo will become higher)
    Rating : 5/5
    
    3. Just spam your Kamehameha! This combo (maybe it's not a combo) actually
    works very well against many opponents in Z Battle Gate, for example Cooler -
    Final Form. Cooler is a bit hard but if you use this Kamehameha technique, he
    will be much much easier.
    Rating : 3.5/5 (a sissy but effective combo, not effective against hard enemy)
    
    Remember!! I am not responsible if the combos do not work!! Since I've done
    these combos and each of the combos is working.

    9. Additional Notes
    ===============================================================================
    This is my first FAQ!! I hope you enjoy it, I'm so sorry if there are some
    mistakes, forgive me OK? The enemy here is Yamcha, since he has the lowest
    Defense level (level 1). And also, the damages of the melee attacks here are
    done with Goku attacking Yamcha not from the back, but from the front (the
    damage will be different if I attack Yamcha from the back, it will be much
    greater)
