I finally got around to do this one.  In the Broly FAQ, I wrote that I might do
a Gogeta or Vegito FAQ.  I have decided to work on Gogeta's FAQ first.  In the
FAQ, there are spoilers to Dragon Ball Z Movie 12 and the battle toward the end
of Dragon Ball GT.  You have been warned.

4. Why a Gogeta FAQ? [WAGF]
--------------------------------------------

The reason for this FAQ is to help people use the strongest character in the 
game.  I was surprised to see that a FAQ was not written on him yet, so I 
decided to write one myself. 

-----------------------------------------
5. Gogeta Super Saiyan [GSSJ]
----------------------------------------- 

Gogeta is the result of a sucessful fusion between Goku and Vegeta.  This form
of Gogeta is only seen in DBZ Movie 12- Fusion Reborn.  Goku and Vegeta fuse as
a last resort to defeat the monster Janemba.  Gogeta uses a new move that he 
invented himself against Janemba as well: the Stardust Breaker.  It exorcises 
the evil from the target, destroying Janemba as he is pure evil.  
Overall, he is a very cool character in the game.  To unlock him, you need to 
fuse the items Goku's Fusion + Vegeta's Fusion. 

5.1  Character Illustration and Stats [GSSJCIS]

This is Gogeta Super Saiyan's Character Illustration.

Note: I corrected a mistake from the CI.  In the CI, it states he appears in 
Movie 13.  I corrected it to Movie 12.

"The personas of Goku and Vegeta, merged together by means of the Fusion
Technique. He appears in Dragonball Z Movie 12.
He is a warrior created by the Fusion of Goku, who had come to rescue
King Yemma, and Vegeta, who had been revived by the disruption taking
place in Other World, in order to oppose the evil monster Janemba. His
hairline is taken from Vegeta, while the hair drooping over his brow is
Goku's. The clothes he wears are in the fashion of the Metamorans, the
aliens from whom Goku learned the Fusion Technique.
While neither Goku nor Vegeta were a match for Janemba on their own,
Gogeta has the strength and speed to overpower the monster.
The prismatic energy attack that he used to finish Janemba is his
favorite technique.
With Vegeta reluctant to perform the Fusion, he and Goku botched the
first attempt. The result was the creation of a roly-poly warrior named
Veku.
Since the Fusion that created him had been a blunder, Veku's power level
was extremely low, and perhaps his stomach was upset as well, for he
pathetically and repeatedly passed gas. Due to his unpredictable motion
and repeated gas attacks, Veku somehow managed to survive for 30 minutes,
after which a second Fusion was performed and the situation was
dramatically reversed."

These are his stats in the game:

Health: 3 (43,200)
Ki: 2 (38,000)
Attack:5
Defense:2
Speed:3
FT: 5
FM: 5
SFM: 1

His stats are very well-rounded.  His SFM is bad, but it is naturally strong
anyway.  


5.2 Move Set [GSSJMS]

These are the moves that require you to hold L2 to execute:


L2+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,700

A good move for wanting to keep distance between you and the opponent.  Also, 
it can prevent all Ki blasts from hitting you.  However, this move leaves you 
vulnerable to a finishing move from an opponent, and it doesn't deal good 
damage.


L2+Up+Circle -- Finish Sign (uses 1 ball)
Rating :1/5  Damage: 0

I never liked these power-up moves unless they give you MAX Power when you used
it.  I do not recommend using this move unless you are in a moment of 
desperation.

L2+Triangle -- Super Kamehameha (uses 45000 ki)
Rating: 5/5  Damage: 15,500

Always one of my favorite moves to use in a fight.  It deals decent damage, can
engage in a wave struggle, and can cancel out Full Power Energy Blast Volley's.
It also costs little Ki.  This is the best move he has.


L2+Up+Triangle -- Final Flash (uses 95000 ki)
Rating: 1/5  Damage: 18,500

I rarely use this move.  It costs too much Ki and does only slightly more 
damage than his Super Kamehameha.  I do not recommend the use of this move at 
all.


L2+Down+Triangle -- Stardust Breaker (uses 91000 ki)
Rating: 4/5 Damage: 27,500  

Costs less than the Final Flash, but does almost twice the damage of the
Super Kamehameha.  When it hits, the opponent is paralyzed, and Gogeta 
detonates it inside of them.  The only problem would be that it can be negated
by a Kamehameha type of attack.




-------------------------------------------------------
6.  Super Gogeta Super Saiyan 4[SGSSJ4]
-------------------------------------------------------

The strongest fighter in the DB Universe.  He is also the strongest in the 
game.  He appeared only once in Dragon Ball GT.  When SSJ4 Goku and SSJ4 Vegeta
fought Omega Shenron, they knew they did not have a chance on their own.  
Vegeta then suggested to do Fusion.  Goku agreed and the fusion worked.  At
SSJ4, Gogeta's power and speed surpassed Omega's by a large amount.  He was 
able to deflect his strongest attack with ease.  He used the Big Bang 
Kamehameha against him,  which almost killed him.  Gogeta's arrogance in this 
form, however was apparent, as he dragged out the fight on purpose for fun.  
When he was about to finish off Omega Shenron, the fusion ended early due to
the power SSJ4 exerts on the body.  This is the only appearance of SSJ4 Gogeta
in DBGT.  To unlock him, you need to fuse the items Super Saiyan 4 Goku's 
Fusion + Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta's Fusion.




6.1 Character Illustration and Stats [SGSSJ4CIS]

This is Super Gogeta Super Saiyan 4's Character Illustration:  

"In Dragonball GT, he emerges as the mightiest of warriors, born of the
Fusion between Goku and Vegeta, and transformed into a Super Saiyan 4.
With the ability to defeat even the most fearsome adversaries using only
one finger, as he did with Omega Shenron, it would seem that his power is
exponentially greater than that of any individual Super Saiyan 4.
Featuring a wild crimson hairstyle, the upper portion of his body is
covered in red fur, as is the case with any Super Saiyan 4. The Metamoran
clothes that he wears are the same as Gogeta's in his regular state.
Being an ultimate warrior created from the combination of Goku and
Vegeta, Gogeta is able to combine their respective attacks into the
ultimate fighting technique: the Big Bang Kamehameha. He is completely
invulnerable to any attack, with his only weakness being his inability
maintain the Fusion for longer than 10 minutes."

These are his stats in the game:  

Health: 4 (53,200)
Ki: 3 (34,000)
Attack: 4
Defense: 3
Speed: 4
FT: 5
FM: 5
SFM: 1

Even better than his previous form,  he is truly the best in the game.  
Again, the SFM is a bit low, but it can still kill an opponent in one hit.



6.2 Move Set [SGSSJ4MS]

These are the moves that require you to hold L2 to execute: 

L2+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,700

Same review as Gogeta Super Saiyan.


L2+Up+Circle -- Full Power Charge (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 2/5  Damage: 0

This move is useful in a tight spot.  The best time to use it is after a 
100x Big Bang Kamehameha, since it regenerates all of your Ki.


L2+Triangle -- Big Bang Kamehameha (uses 55000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 15,500

Same review as the Super Kamehameha for Gogeta Super Saiyan.  The only thing
is that it costs more Ki.


L2+Up+Triangle -- High Power Rush (uses 44000 ki)
Rating: 2/5  Damage: 12,100

Another move type that I rarely use.  Rush moves leave you vulnerable when you
start them, so your opponent can use any type of finishing move to prevent your
rush from connecting.  I only use them when the opponent has little Ki left and
cannot dodge it.


L2+Down+Triangle -- 100x Big Bang Kamehameha (uses 100000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage:  34,000

Costs all of your Ki, but can kill an opponent in one blast.  The blast is a 
bit larger than the normal Big Bang Kamehameha.  The most powerful SFM in the 
game.


------------------------------
7. Z Battle Gate [ZBG]
------------------------------

This is story mode of the game. Here, I will give strategies for the battles 
that involve Gogeta. 


7.1 Z Battle Gate as Gogeta[ZBGG] 

There is only one battle where you play as Gogeta.  The secenario is the 
Evil Monster Janemba.  To unlock it, clear the Majin Buu Saga.

The Evil Monster Janemba:


SSJ Gogeta vs Janemba- Treat the fight as normal.  Do not forget to finish him
with the Stardust Breaker.  He is a bit difficult because of his strength, but 
nothing to hard.

End of The Evil Monster Janemba:
____________________________________________________________

7.2 Z Battle Gate against Gogeta [ZBGAG]


The Plan to Conquer Earth: To unlock this Z Battle Gate, you have to clear 
The Revenge of the Saiyans story.  To unlock that one, you need to clear 
The Cosmic Emperor story.  To unlock that one, you need to clear A Lonesome,
Final Battle story.  Finally, to unlock that one, you need to beat the Saiyan 
Saga.

Cooler Final Form vs. SSJ Gogeta- Treat this fight as normal.

Baby Vegeta vs. SSJ4 Gogeta- This fight is hard due to his strength.  Treat 
this fight as normal.  

Super 17 vs. SSJ4 Gogeta- This fight is harder than the last one due to Super
17's lack of abilty to charge Ki like normal.  You need to adjust strategy for 
this battle because of this.  

End of The Plan to Conquer Earth:

8. Author's Notes [ARN]
----------------------------------

What do you think of this FAQ? I used Yamcha to test out the damage.   Also, if
anything I typed contradicts the Character Illustration, go by the Character 
Illustration.  Until next time.

-------------------------
9. Q and A [QNA]
-------------------------

The first five questions are questions I made up, but I will update this 
section with real question when the FAQ is posted, and the questions start 
coming in.

Q1: Why do you have a bio for the character if you copied the in-game
Character Illustration?

A1:  The reason for that was to introduce the character a bit.  The Character
Illustration has much more info than I could give.  I give my POV, while the
Character Illustration gives what actually happened.  Also, some of the 
bios I typed may include info that the Character Illustration does not have.

Q2:  Why did you not include Ultimate Battle/Potara Earring suggestions in the
FAQ.

A2: Recently, it has come to my attention that any earrings you use will not 
work in UB mode.  This may be a flaw that Spike looked over when making this
game, and I am hoping it is fixed for the next game.  Thanks goes to 
ssj4warrior for telling me this on the message boards.  As for Potara 
suggestions, they can only be used in Dueling, World Tournament, and Practice, 
so I let the reader decide what to equip on their character.

Q3:  Can I put your FAQ on my website?

A3: No.  I will only put this FAQ on GameFAQs and no where else.  I prefer it
this way, because that means there is only one site to keep track of that has
this FAQ posted.

Q4:  Will you do other FAQ's for this game?

A4:  I am not sure.  If I do, Vegito is next on my FAQ writing list.

Q5: Why did you not include the controls of the game in the FAQ?

A5: There are two reasons for this. The first one is that the controls or in
the game manual.  I understand it if someone lost the manual, but that leads me
to reason two:  the game has a tutorial mode, so you can relearn the controls
there.
