4. Why a Vegito FAQ?  [WAVF]
--------------------------------------------

The reason for this FAQ is that Vegito is one of the strongest characters in 
the DB Universe and the strongest character in the DBZ manga and anime.  
Because of this, I decided to make an FAQ for him.



---------------------
5. Vegito [VBF]
---------------------

Vegito is the strongest fighter in DBZ.  He is formed through a Potara Earring
fusion of Goku and Vegeta.  He only appears and fights in his base form in the 
anime.  In the manga, he went straight to Super Saiyan.  In the anime, he toyed
with Super Buu, who had already absorbed Gotenks, Piccolo, and Gohan.  When he
wanted to get serious, he transfomed into a Super Saiyan.  





5.1  Character Ilustration and Stats [VBFCIS]

This is Vegito's Character Illustration:

"The personas of Goku and Vegeta, merged together by means of the Potara
earrings.
In order to defeat Super Buu, who had absorbed Gotenks and Piccolo, Goku
first tried to merge with Gohan using the Potara earring given to him by
the Elder Supreme Kai. Before the plan could be enacted, however, Gohan
was also absorbed by Buu.
With Hercule being the only warrior remaining, Goku's hopes for a
successful fusion seemed dashed, until Vegeta made a surprise return from
Other World. At Goku's urging, the two merged together, transforming into
Vegito.
Because he was formed through a merging of two Saiyans, Vegito outward
appearance did not take on any surprising qualities, but as a fusion of
two of the strongest warriors in the universe, he displays an awesome
level of power.
In the original manga, he immediately transforms into Super Vegito. In
the TV-anime, he enters into battle with Super Buu while still in this
form.
Incidentally, for merged characters such as Vegito, two voice actors
perform at the same time. This was the idea of Akira Toriyama; the
original creator."

These are his stats in the game: 

Health:3(43,800)
Ki:2(33,000)
Attack:4
Defense:2
Speed:3
FT:3
FM:4
SFM:5

These stats are pretty good, except for defense.  Overall, one of the most
well-rounded characters in the game.



5.2  Move Set [VBFMS]

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


L2+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,600

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 -- Hi-tension (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 -- Big Bang Attack (uses 43000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 12,000

It does OK damage and the Ki cost is good, but if the opponent uses 
a move that can initiate a beam struggle, this move is negated.

L2+Up+Triangle -- High Speed Rush (uses 34000 ki)
Rating: 2/5  Damage: 9,000

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 -- Super Kamehameha (uses 95000 ki)
Rating: 5/5  Damage: 28,250

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.  


---------------------------------------------------
6. Super Vegito Super Saiyan  [SVSSJ]
---------------------------------------------------

This is Vegito when he is a Super Saiyan.  In this form, he totally overpowers
Super Buu.  With a single Ki blast, he leaves Buu's body in shreds (the Ki 
blast is an actual move in Budokai 2 and 3 called Spirit Cannon).  Also, he 
uses a beam sword against Buu, which also left his body tattered.  However, his
arrogance got the better of him, and Buu turned him into a coffee flavored 
candy.  Even in that form, he was getting the best of Buu until he was absorbed
into his body.  There, he was defused because of what was in Buu's body.





6.1  Character Illustration and Stats [SVSSJCIS]

This is Super Vegito Super Saiyan's Character Illustration:

"The Super Saiyan form of Vegito, the personas of Goku and Vegeta, merged
together by means of the Potara earrings.
Vegito was unbelievably strong in his natural state, but when he
transformed into a Super Saiyan, his power went off the scale. His
abilities were so incredible that even after Buu turned him into a piece
of hard candy, he remained as strong as ever.
Though he could have most likely defeated Super Buu with his awesome
strength, Vegito instead allowed Buu to swallow him, in order to rescue
the others who had been absorbed.
Ordinarily, a fusion created by the Potara earrings is permanent.
However, the powerful gastric acids inside Buu's stomach disolved the
fusion, and Vegito split back into Goku and Vegeta.
In addition of his original moves such as the Beam Sword Slash, in this
form, Vegito can also use favorite techniques such as the Big Bang Attack
and the Super Kamehameha."

These are his stats in the game:

Health:3(45,000)
Ki:2(33,000)
Attack:5
Defense:3
Speed:3
FT:4
FM:5
SFM:1

The SFM stat is low.  Other than that, his stats are fine.



6.2 Move Set [SVSSJMS]

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

L2+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,650

Same review as Vegito's Explosive Wave.

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

Same review as Vegito's Hi-Tension.

L2+Triangle -- Big Bang Attack (uses 44000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 12,500

Same review as Vegito's Big Bang Attack

L2+Up+Triangle -- Super Kamehameha (uses 45000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 15,500

Same review as Vegito's Super Kamehameha, but costs less than half of the Ki 
than before.

L2+Down+Triangle -- Beam Sword Slash (uses 91000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 27,000

This move type is unique to him.  The sword extends only to a certain length, 
so the range is not the best.  However, it does good damage.



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

This is the story mode of the game.  Here, I will detail the two battles that 
involve Vegito.





7.1 Z Battle Gate as Vegito[ZBGV]

The Majin Buu Saga: The one fight that you play as him is in the Majin Buu 
Saga.  This sage is already unlocked.

SSJ Vegito vs. Super Buu (Ultimate Gohan Absorbed)- Treat this fight like 
normal, being careful of his FM's.  Remember to finish him with the Beam Sword
Slash when his health is low.  

End of the Majin Buu Saga
_____________________________________________________________



7.2 Z Battle Gate against Vegito [ZBGAV]

The Destructive Majin: The one time when you fight against him is in the
Destructive Majin sceniario. To unlock this scenario, beat the scenarios
Android Saga,  Future Super Warrior, The Ultimate Android, and The True 
Ultimate Android.

Super Buu vs. SSJ Vegito- This fight is very hard.  His physical attacks are 
powerful and the stipulation does not help either.  Rely on using the
Extinction of Mankind Homing Blasts as you main source of damage.  When his
health is lower yellow or red, prepare to use the SFM.  MAKE SURE THAT THE MOVE
CAN KILL HIM!  I cannot stress this enough, since the move destroys your own 
health.  If it does not work, you will be in trouble. 

End of The Destructive Majin

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:  Possibly.  I am thinking about writing FAQ's for every character that
currently doesn't have an FAQ.  So far, Broly, Cell, Goegta, and this one IMO
turned out good.  However, I am not 100% set on it.  I will update this FAQ 
when I have made my decision.

Update:  I have decided not to do an FAQ for every character.  Since there are
a few characters that I will not play as, writing an FAQ for those characters 
would be tedious and boring, especially if the character does not interest me.
However, I will continue to write FAQs for this game.  

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.
