    II) Introduction
    
    Hai, HAI! So, as I stated in my Future Trunks (Fighting) FAQ, writing 
    up character guides for Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 has become 
    somewhat of a hobby of mine. Okay, here’s the low down – I love Son 
    Goku. I’m the world’s biggest Goku fan boy (only I don’t fall into 
    the “ZOMG!!1 Hee cud tottali beet mistac gowhan!!1111shift+1” section 
    of Goku fan boys). When I first started watching DBZ (in late 1999) I 
    noticed that Goku was one of those guys that just didn’t give up, he 
    always strived to become better and it clearly showed. It was this, 
    plus his personality and that fantastic hairstyle that made me like 
    him so much. In short, he became my hero. He became my hero in 1999 
    and he still is to this day. It was only a (slightly long) matter of 
    time before I wrote up an FAQ for him! Yes, this FAQ will focus on 
    his transformations as well. So we’ll be looking at Base form, Super 
    Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3.

    IV) Goku’s profile
    
    Goku is the main character of Dragonball, Dragonball Z and especially 
    Dragonball GT (Dragonball Goku Time). He was originally sent to Earth 
    to destroy its inhabitants by the Saiyans. When he landed on Earth he 
    was found by a kindly old man named Gohan who took the child (at the 
    moment named Kakarot) in as his own. Sadly, Kakarot’s violent nature 
    made it difficult for Gohan to take care of him. During a hike across 
    the mountains, Kakarot fell several feet and landed on his head, 
    badly injuring it. It was this fall that made him forget about his 
    “programming” to destroy the inhabitants of the planet Earth and from 
    that day forward, he became a peaceful good natured boy.
    
    Throughout his life, he went on many adventures; he took part in 
    Tenkaichi Budokai’s, he searched for the Dragonballs and came across 
    many enemies, some of which eventually became his friends. During 
    Dragonball, Goku meets up with Bulma, Yamcha, Krillin, Tien, Chaozu, 
    the Demon King Piccolo and more. All those listed above became his 
    friend in Dragonball, except for Piccolo, who’s offspring Piccolo Jr 
    would go on to fight alongside Goku in DBZ. During Dragonball Z, Goku 
    found out about his Saiyan heritage from his big brother Raditz. 
    During the following battle with Raditz, Goku was killed while 
    sacrificing himself. While in the afterlife, he trained with the 
    renowned King Kai and learned some new techniques, eventually leaving 
    to do battle with Nappa and Vegeta. 
    
    After this battle, Vegeta would dub Kakarot his rival and from this 
    point onwards, trained to be better than his rival. Once Goku arrived 
    on the Planet Namek to aid his friends, who had gone off to search 
    for the Dragonballs, he did battle with 4 out of 5 Ginyu Force 
    members. He beat Recoome with a single blow to the stomach and it was 
    at this point that Vegeta began to suspect that his rival had become 
    a Super Saiyan. Goku sustained heavy injuries during his battle with 
    Captain Ginyu, so he was placed into a rejuvenation tank to recover 
    his wounds. After fully healing up, he immediately made it to the 
    battle with Frieza. The tyrant had just murdered Dende and had beaten 
    Vegeta severely. Before dying from a Death Beam through his chest, 
    Vegeta, through tears, admitted to Goku why he acted the way he did. 
    Goku buried the Saiyan Prince soon after. 
    
    Announcing that he was going to finish Frieza off, Goku and the 
    intergalactic tyrant engaged in a massive battle. After being hit by 
    a Spirit Bomb, Frieza was thought to have been destroyed, but it only 
    injured him. Frieza showed his frustration by gravely injuring 
    Piccolo and blowing up Goku’s best friend Krillin. Enraged at this, 
    Goku transformed into a Super Saiyan right then and there. This boost 
    in power won Goku the fight and he was thought to have been killed 
    when Namek blew up. He survived though, using one of the Ginyu Forces 
    space pods to crash land on the planet known as Yardrat. It was on 
    this planet that he learned the Instant Transmission technique. After 
    returning to Earth, he was told by Future Trunks about the upcoming 
    Android invasion. Goku and his friends trained for 3 years straight.
    
    On the fateful day, the Z fighters confronted the androids 19 and 20. 
    During his battle with Android 19, Goku’s heart virus (which Future 
    Trunks had warned him about) started up, weakening the Saiyan. He was 
    saved by Vegeta and spent the rest of the Android saga, bedridden. 
    After recovering from that, he went to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber to 
    ascend past the level of an ordinary Super Saiyan, along with Gohan, 
    Vegeta and Trunks. During their time inside the chamber, Goku managed 
    to get Gohan up to Super Saiyan status. He also discovered the 
    weakness of the USSJ2 form and so he devised a way to get used to the 
    Super Saiyan form. He and Gohan were now able to remain as SSJ’s, 
    even when relaxing and sleeping. This has been called the Full Power 
    Super Saiyan form or FPSSJ for short.
    
    During the Cell games, Goku gave up during his fight with Cell and 
    instead had Gohan fight the monster. It was only after Android 16’s 
    head was destroyed, did the boy achieve Super Saiyan 2 status. Sadly 
    however, cell showed how much of a sore loosing prick he was, by 
    threatening to blow up the Earth with a Kamikaze attack. Goku bid 
    farewell to his friends and his son and used his Instant Transmission 
    to teleport Cell to the planet of King Kai. The ensuing explosion 
    killed Goku, King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory. Goku chose to remain in 
    the afterlife after his destruction by the hands of Cell and would 
    not meet up with his friends until 7 years later. It was during his 
    time in otherworld that Goku learned Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3 
    and the Fusion Dance. 
    
    After returning to Earth for a day to participate in a tournament, he 
    ditched it to try and thwart the threat of Majin Buu. Around this 
    time, Vegeta let himself be taken over by the wizard Babidi and 
    became Majin Vegeta. He and SSJ2 Goku battled each other until the 
    Prince of Saiyans knocked his rival unconscious. Vegeta then died 
    trying to eliminate Buu. Once Goku awakened, he taught Goten and 
    Trunks the Fusion Dance and showed the group Super Saiyan 3 whilst 
    attempting to hold Babidi and Buu off, whilst Trunks searched the 
    Capsule Corp for the Dragon Radar. In other world, Goku met up with 
    Gohan, who had been brought there for training and later gained the 
    life of the Elder Kai. 
    
    Equipped with the Potara earrings, Goku initially planned to fuse 
    with Gohan to end Buu’s reign of terror, however his son was absorbed 
    by the monster instead leaving Goku to fuse with his rival, Vegeta. 
    The warrior known as Vegetto was born and dominated his fight with 
    Buu. He let himself be absorbed to rescue his sons and Piccolo from 
    inside Buu. Once inside the monster, Vegetto separated back into Goku 
    and Vegeta again and the two located and rescued their allies. Due to 
    Vegeta’s meddling, Kid Buu was born and blew up the Earth with a 
    single attack. It was on the Planet of the Kai’s that Goku and Vegeta 
    finished off Buu. Goku’s gigantic Spirit Bomb obliterated the evil 
    being. 
    
    The damage that Majin Buu caused was fixed with the Dragonballs and 
    Goku once again lived in peace with his family. 10 years later, he 
    and a few other Z fighters participated in yet another World Martial 
    Arts Tournament, but Goku left to train Uub – the reincarnated Buu. A 
    few more years later, In Dragonball Goku Time, Goku was turned into a 
    kid due to a wish from emperor Pilaf (who shouldn’t have been alive 
    anyway) and travelled the galaxy with his granddaughter Pan and 
    Trunks. In GT, Toei showed how much they loved Goku by making him a 
    god – Godku if you will. Base Kid Goku was an unstoppable force, even 
    Super Saiyan 4 was rendered obsolete in terms of power. >_>  
    
    This is his profile from the Budokai Tenkaichi 2 encyclopedia.
    
    Base Goku – 
    This is the strong young man named Goku. As a Saiyan baby, he was 
    sent from Planet Vegeta to destroy planet Earth, however, an 
    unexpected head injury caused his Saiyan characteristics to 
    disappear. Instead of an evil beast, he grew up as a kind-hearted 
    Earthling under the loving care of his foster father, Grandpa Gohan. 
    When his older brother Raditz arrives on Earth and reminds Goku of 
    his original mission, Goku refuses to carry out the task, instead 
    choosing to fight for the good of Earth. From then on, Goku’s job as 
    the world’s greatest defender becomes increasingly difficult as he is 
    faced with many dark and formidable enemies, one after another. 
    
    No matter how large the crisis, he never gives up, and his loyalty to 
    the good of all people and to his friends makes him the ultimate 
    hero. Especially to Nick Kazama. However, since Goku spends his days 
    fighting evil, this makes life tricky for his wife, Chi-Chi, forcing 
    her to be the family breadwinner in an effort to make ends meat. In 
    Dragonball GT, Goku once again travels deep into space with Trunks 
    and Pan to defend the world on an adventure that puts the entire 
    universe in his hands.
    
    Super Saiyan Goku – 
    The first time dad ever became a Super Saiyan, it was when Frieza 
    killed Krillin. As a super Saiyan, he looked different and his power 
    level raised to almost 50 times normal. That first time was scary, 
    since no one knew what was happening to him. It was like he had some 
    sort of strange sickness that came from his Saiyan blood. The more 
    emotional Dad got, the more his odd Saiyan powers would take over his 
    body. Oh, and Mom doesn’t seem to like super Saiyans very much. 
    
        - From Gohan’s Super Saiyan Observation Journal. 
    
    Super Saiyan 2 Goku –
    Goku transforms from Super Saiyan into this form. After training in 
    Other World, he achieved the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan 
    2. A Super Saiyan’s distinctive change is more pronounced, and his 
    power rises further. In the duel with Majin Vegeta, who had powered 
    up thanks to Babidi’s magic, Goku changed into this form and showed 
    an extraordinary power. 
    
    Super Saiyan 3 Goku – 
    This is the form that surpasses Super Saiyan 2. In this form, the 
    hidden power in a Saiyan’s blood is taken to its limits. At first 
    glance, this is an extreme change when compared to a regular Super 
    Saiyan. The eyebrows disappear and the hair grows even longer. The 
    power of a Super Saiyan 3 is far greater than any Saiyan level 
    before. However, the transformation requires a lot of energy. Only in 
    Other World can a Saiyan keep this power for a long period of time. 
    Anywhere else, the time a Saiyan can stay at the super Saiyan 3 level 
    is very short.

    V) Some of Goku’s combos
    
    Okay, lets do this! Firstly, press the Square button 5 times and Goku 
    will perform a 5 hit combo that should come to 1610 damage. After the 
    5th punch, press the X button and Goku will get right in his 
    opponents face. Immediately after pressing the X button, press the 
    Square button another 5 times and Goku will perform another combo, 
    this one totalling 6 hits. On the third press of the Square button on 
    the second 5 button presses, Goku does 6 hits instead of 5. This 
    combo will come to 11 hits. This 11 hit combo should deal 3650 
    damage. Try this; 
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Square, Square
    
    Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x5
    
    Done that? Good. Alrighty then, onto the different combos!
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish – Square, Triangle
    Kiai Cannon – Square, Square, Triangle
    Flying Kick – Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    Lift Strike – Up + Triangle
    Ground Slash – Down + Triangle
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 1
    
    Goku punches his opponent once and then launches his left fist 
    straight into the opponent’s gut; this hit stuns them for a short 
    amount of time. When you press the Triangle button, hold it down and 
    Goku will charge the gut punch. If you do choose to charge the gut 
    blow then (after it connects) the Heavy Finish hit will stun the 
    opponent for a longer amount of time, giving you just that extra bit 
    longer to make a more effective move. The charged Heavy Finish will 
    also do a bit more damage than usual. You can also add more hits to 
    the Heavy Finish combo you know! There are several possible outcomes 
    of how you could end this combo, try these;
    
    1 hit finish – Square, Triangle
    
    As mentioned above, Goku punches once and then delivers a hard punch 
    to his enemies gut.
    
    2 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle
    
    Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut and then kicks them.
    
    3 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle
    
    Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut, kicks them and then 
    kicks them again.
    
    4 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut, kicks them once, then 
    twice and then a third time!
    
    If you do decide to go along with the 4 hit finish, then Goku will 
    end up sending his opponent halfway across the screen with that final 
    kick he does. You should use this time to gather some ki, use his 
    “Give Me Energy!” Blast 1 move, or try to go into Kaio-ken or 
    something. 
    -----
    
    Kiai Cannon
    
    Goku punches his opponent twice and then moves both of his hands to 
    his sides, stunning the enemy. Like the Heavy Finish attack, Goku can 
    charge his Kiai Cannon move. Uncharged, the actual hit will do 780 
    damage. If you charge it, then it will cause 1340 points of damage as 
    well as knocking the opponent away. Of course you could just read the 
    little bit of text below this writing;
    
    Kiai Cannon uncharged – Opponent is stunned slightly and receives 780 
    points of damage
    
    Kiai Cannon charged – Opponent is sent flying and receives 1340 
    points of damage
    
    If you decided to use the fully charged Kiai Cannon attack, then 
    you’ll probably (depends on the difficulty setting you’re using) get 
    a chance to charge some ki, use the “Give Me Energy!” Blast 1 move, 
    or use the Kaio-ken power up. You can even do an extra teleport 
    attack if you sent the opponent flying with this move. After they’ve 
    been knocked away, press the Triangle button again to have Goku 
    teleport near them and knock them into the ground!
    -----
    
    Flying Kick
    
    Goku punches his opponent 3 times and ends the combo by planting his 
    feet into the enemies face 3 times. The resulting kicks to the face 
    will stun the opponent, so you could try to do another Flying Kick 
    move. Try this;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    Simplified version = Square x3, Triangle, Square x3, Triangle
    
    Keep in mind that you cannot do 3 or more Flying Kicks in a row, as 
    the opponent is knocked onto the floor after the second one. If you 
    went through with the full 2 Flying Kick attacks, then Goku should 
    perform a 12 hit combo, causing 2400 points of damage. 
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 2
    
    Yup, Goku has another Heavy Finish attack to round of his 4 hit 
    (Square x4) combo! This Heavy Finish is exactly the same as the first 
    one, only Goku causes more damage with his starting punches. Try this 
    next combo twice, only charge the Heavy Finish attack on the second 
    version;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle (not held down)
    
    This should come to a total of 1540 damage.
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle (held down)
    
    This one should come to a total of 2450 damage, almost double the 
    damage of the above combo.
    
    Now, we’ll try adding some more hits to the combo! Try this;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Square, Square, Triangle 
    
    Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x5, Triangle
    
    This should net you a 11 hit combo.
    -----
    
    Lift Strike
    
    Ah, the Lift Strike! Here's a good move. It enables you to hit your 
    opponent up into the sky, leading for a very damaging combo. Remember 
    that you have to Goku perform AT LEAST 1 punch before you can perform 
    a Lift Strike attack. Try a Lift Strike without punching first and 
    Goku will instead do a ki blast. Let's break down the Lift Strike;
    
    Firstly, punch your opponent and then immediately after that hit, 
    press Up + Triangle, like this;
    
    Square, Up + Triangle 
    
    Notice how your opponent is sent up into the sky? The actual Lift 
    Strike move itself (like many melee moves in Budokai Tenkaichi 2) is 
    chargeable. Try the above Lift Strike again, but this time hold the 
    Triangle button down. Done that? Great, see how your opponent is sent 
    even higher into the air? Okay, stage 2! After the opponent is sent 
    hurtling into the air, press the X button and Goku will fly after 
    them, like this;
    
    Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X
    
    Okay, onto Stage 3. As soon as Goku reaches them, press the Square 
    button repeatedly to do a 7 hit combo to them whilst in the air. The 
    combo will end with the opponent being sent down to the ground again. 
    Try this;
    
    Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X, Square, 
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Opponent is sent onto the ground
    
    You can make that combo in the air a little more damaging by pressing 
    the Triangle button, instead of the Square button, as soon as Goku
    reaches them in the air. Like this;
    
    Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent up into the air, X, Triangle, 
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square
    
    simplified version = Square, LS, X, Triangle, Square x5
    
    This will do some more damage to the opponent. You can do even more 
    damage than that as well! Press the Triangle button after the 4th 
    Square button press to make Goku knock his opponent onto the ground 
    hard. Like this;
    
    Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X, Triangle, 
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    Here's a simplified version just for you = 
    Square, LS, X, Triangle, Square x4, Triangle
    
    Hope that's not too hard for ya! If it is, then practise it!
    -------------------
    
    Ground Slash
    
    Finally, we come to the Ground Slash attack. This attack, like the 
    Lift Strike move, requires you to punch the opponent AT LEAST once 
    before you are able to perform it. Like this;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle
    
    Notice how your opponent is knocked onto his arse? The Ground Slash 
    is also chargeable, try it again, but this time, hold the Triangle 
    button down. See that? The opponent is now falling down in slow 
    motion! 
    
    Square, Down + Triangle (non charged), Opponent falls onto the floor.
    
    Square, Down + Triangle (charged), Opponent falls onto the floor in 
    slow motion.
    
    Do the charged one again and then try a combo on him, like this;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square
    
    After this small combo, your opponent is knocked backward.
    
    Here's another combo, that enables you to link in a Heavy Finish;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Triangle
    
    For even more damage, try this one;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    And to add even more damage to the last 2 combos, have Goku perform 
    a 4 hit Heavy Finish, like this;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, 
    Triangle, 
    Triangle, Square
    
    Simplified = Square, GS, Square x3, Triangle x3, Square
    
    For the last part in the Ground Slash section, I'm going to tell you 
    how to perform a teleport hit combo. It's really simple to pull off 
    too! Try this;
    
    Square, Down + Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    Remember to watch your timing when performing the teleport hits.
    -------------------
    
    Think we’re done for melee moves? Think again! Press the (R3) button 
    down! For you of those that don’t know what the (R3) button is, it’s 
    the Right Analogue stick press down. Tada! It’s SSJ Goku time!
    
    Alrighty then, firstly press the Square button 5 times, the X button 
    as the opponent falls backwards and then hit that Square button 
    another 5 times to have Goku perform an 11 hit combo. 
    -----
    
    SSJ Goku’s changed combo list 
    
    Flying Kick – Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    Kiai Cannon – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    -----
    
    Flying Kick
    
    Goku’s Flying Kick has replaced the Heavy Finish 1 as his starting 
    combo finisher. Not only that, but the Flying Kick of SSJ Goku has 
    changed in looks too. Press the Square button and then the Triangle 
    button and Goku will do a 5 hit combo. No, that’s not a typo, he’ll 
    do a 5 hit combo! If you want to do an even longer combo, then press 
    Square, Triangle, Square, Triangle. Goku will now do a 10 hit combo. 
    Hehe, a 10 hit combo for pressing 4 buttons! Please note that if you 
    pressed the Square button a second time too quickly, then you’ll only 
    get a 9 hit combo. You have to wait for about half a second after 
    pressing the Triangle button the first time to have him do the full 
    10 hit combo. 
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 1
    
    That’s right, the second combo finisher has been changed from a Kiai 
    Cannon into a Heavy Finish – the first of 2 Heavy Finishers. Remember 
    that SSJ Goku punches twice when you hit the punch button once. So 
    this will end up being a 3 hit combo;
    
    Square (Goku punches twice), Square (Goku punches once), Triangle 
    (Goku does his Heavy Finish attack)
    
    Remember to chain it with the other hits in the Heavy Finish combo;
    
    Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    That first Triangle button press is still chargeable, so charge it if 
    you want to do a tad more damage!
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 2
    
    What, another Heavy Finish already? Yes another Heavy Finish already! 
    This is EXACTLY the same as the last Heavy Finish attack you just 
    performed, except that Goku will punch his opponent an extra time 
    before using the combo finishing move. It should come up to a 5 hit 
    combo. But let’s make it longer shall we? Try this;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x2, Triangle
    
    Think you’re up for a longer one? Okay, then try this one;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Triangle
    
    Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x3, Triangle
    
    Even longer? You got it!
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    That should net you a nice little 13 hit combo!
    -----
    
    Kiai Cannon
    
    The Kiai Cannon attack is now Goku’s last move in the combo list. Hit 
    that Square button 4 times and then press the Triangle button to make 
    Goku stun his opponent slightly. Press the Triangle button down and 
    Goku will charge the attack. The Kiai Cannon will now send the 
    opponent far away from you. Use a B1 move, or gather some ki in the 
    meantime! If you want to do a little more damage then after you’ve 
    charged that Triangle button and the opponent has gone flying, press 
    it again and Goku will perform a teleport hit, knocking them onto the 
    ground!
    -----
    
    Woah, where do you think you’re going fella (or girl)? It’s not time 
    for the blast moves yet! We’ve still got 2 more transformations worth 
    of combos to get through. Press (R3) again and its SSJ2 time.
    
    Oooh, electricity! Okay then, firstly press the Square button 5 times 
    and then when the opponent is knocked backwards slightly, press the X 
    button to have SSJ2 Goku dash right up to them again. After he’s done 
    this, press the Square button again another 5 times. This should net 
    you a 12 hit combo. 
    -----
    
    SSJ2 Goku’s changed combo list 
    
    Kiai Cannon – Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    -----
    
    Kiai Cannon
    
    Press the Square button and then hit the Triangle button to make Goku 
    do his Kiai Cannon attack. Other than the reduced number of Square 
    button presses required to do it, the Kiai Cannon is exactly the same 
    as before.
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 1
    
    Heavy Finish is still Square, Square, Triangle, only now it does 
    slightly more damage than it did before.
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 2
    
    Heavy Finish number 2 is still in the same place it was the last time 
    with SSJ Goku. The only differences here are an extra hit and 
    slightly more damage.
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 3
    
    Yes, SSJ2 Goku ditches the Flying Kick in favour of ANOTHER Heavy 
    Finish! For this final Heavy Finish you need to press the Square 
    button 4 times and THEN hit the Triangle button. Let’s make this 
    combo longer shall we? We’ll skip straight to the longest combo. I 
    think you’re ready for it; it’s not exactly a hard one;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x4, Triangle x3, Square
    -----
    
    There’s just one more form to go! Super Saiyan 3! Press that (R3) 
    button. Voila! Super Saiyan 3 Goku has entered the building! This of 
    course is Goku’s most powerful form...
    
    Random guy – But wait Nick, what about SSJ4??
    
    Shut up. As I was saying, this is Goku’s most powerful form, so let’s 
    take him for a spin shall we!
    
    Firstly Press that Square button 5 times, as the opponent is slightly 
    knocked backwards, press the X button to have Goku dash right up to 
    them again and then hit the Square button again another 5 times. This 
    should give you a 13 hit combo. Notice how his basic combo number 
    rises by 1 hit each with transformation? Anyhoo, his changed combo 
    list awaits...
    -----
    
    Super Saiyan 3 Goku’s changed combo list
    
    Kiai Cannon – Square, Triangle
    Flying Kick – Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    -----
    
    Kiai Cannon
    
    As with SSJ2 Goku, the Kiai Cannon once again appears at the top of 
    the combo list. It will do 3 hits instead of 2, because SSJ3 Goku 
    will punch twice when you press the Square button once. Remember that 
    if you charge the Kiai cannon hit by holding down the Triangle button 
    then it will do slightly more damage and will send the opponent 
    flying away from you. Oh yeah, SSJ3 Goku can still perform his 
    teleport hit if you charge the Triangle button the first time. Like 
    this;
    
    Square, Triangle (held down, opponent is sent flying), triangle *Goku 
    teleports over to the opponent and knocks them straight into the 
    ground. 
    -----
    
    Flying Kick
    
    Wehey! Goku gets his flying kick back! Remember? SSJ2 Goku sacrificed 
    this move for a third Heavy Finish attack. Well, if you missed this 
    attack whilst using the last form, relax, its back now. The Flying 
    Kick of Super Saiyan 3 Goku is the same as the Flying Kick that Super 
    Saiyan Goku used. He still does that little forward flip and it (the 
    actual Flying Kick move itself) still does 3 hits. Wanna get a neat 
    little 12 hit combo while using the Flying Kick move twice? Okay 
    then, try this out;
    
    Square, Square, Triangle, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    Simplified Version = Square x2, Triangle, Square x2, Triangle 
    
    This will give you that 12 hit combo. Remember to watch your timing 
    with this as Goku’s extra punch will probably put you off.
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 1 
    
    Oh yes, it’s back again! Goku will now produce a 6 hit combo if you 
    use this first Heavy Finish attack, like so;
    
    Square, Square, Square (Goku attacks 5 times), Triangle (Goku does 
    the Heavy Finish – A.K.A. the 6th hit of the combo)
    Remember to try and chain it with the other 3 hits to do some more 
    damage to your opponent;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    Simplified Version = Square x3, Triangle x3, Square
    
    Also remember that that first Triangle button press is chargeable. 
    The longer you keep it held down, then the more damage Goku will do 
    when his fist connects to the opponent!
    -----
    
    Heavy Finish 2
    
    And to end SSJ3 Goku’s combo list, we have yet another Heavy Finish 
    move! Try this;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle
    
    And a 7 hit combo is produced. Now do this;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    And a 10 hit combo at 4440 damage is produced. Lets make this combo 
    even longer, like so;
    
    Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, 
    Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square
    
    Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x4, Triangle x3, Square
    
    This should give you a 16 hit combo. Right, that’s enough of the 
    Heavy Finish hits and the combo’s, let’s get straight onto those 
    Blast moves! Hit the Down button and the (R3) button simultaneously 
    to de-transform Goku back to his Base form. 
    -------------------
    
    VI) Goku’s special moves
    
    Oh yes, the Blast moves! It’s time to see the many, many moves of 
    Goku and all of his forms! Lets us start out with Base Goku’s blast 1 
    moves;
    
    Give me energy!
    
    How to do it = [L2] + O
    Cost – 2 Blast Stocks
    
    As soon as you do this, Goku will raise his arms into the air, whilst 
    yelling “Share your energy with me!”. Now, if you fly up into the air 
    and look around, then you’ll notice that the Spirit Bomb has 
    appeared! Using Give me Energy! is the only way you can use the 
    Spirit Bomb. If you want to make the Spirit Bomb more powerful then 
    charge it up by using this Blast 1 move 2 more times. You’ll notice 
    that the Bomb gets bigger and bigger each time you use it. Be warned 
    however, because Goku will be completely open while gathering the 
    energy for his most powerful attack. Knock the opponent away from you 
    and then get behind a rock or something. Now is the best time to use 
    Give me energy! If you are interrupted, then you will lose those 2 
    Blast Stocks and you’ll also have to charge the Spirit Bomb an extra 
    time (if you’re going for a fully charged Spirit Bomb that is...) 
    Also, please note that if you have Goku transform or tag him out of a 
    battle after he has used Give me energy! then the Spirit Bomb will 
    vanish and you’ll be forced to start all over again.
    
    
    Kaio-ken
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + O
    Cost – 3 Blast Stocks
    
    This is a power up move for Goku. As soon as you input the correct 
    button command, Goku will “KAIO-KEN!!” as his body is engulfed in a 
    red flame. This can be very useful in tight spots because Goku will 
    gain all the stat upgrades. They are – 
    
    Fist = Increased Strength for melee attacks
    Lightning = Increased Blast 2 move and Ultimate Blast move power
    Saiyan Armor = Increased defence
    Light Blue Cloud = Allows you to fly around faster than usual, but 
    not by much
    
    Note that when you use the Kaio-ken, Goku’s ki will be steadily 
    dropping constantly. You will not be able to power up either. Other 
    than that, it doesn’t change the way Goku plays or anything, his 
    combo’s remain the same and he becomes stronger. Kaio-ken also gets 
    Goku up to full ki.
    
    Alrighty then, the Blast 2 moves baby!
    
    
    Kamehameha
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges
    
    Goku’s trademark attack, which he used throughout Dragonball Z! The 
    Kamehameha is a sort of combo beam attack as it does 6 hits of 
    damage. This attack, like many other attacks in Budokai Tenkaichi 2, 
    is a chargeable one. If you want to fully charge it, then it will 
    take you 2 seconds. Let’s take a look at the various damages you can 
    cause with this blue beam of destruction;
    
    Non charged = 4800 damage
    
    Halfway charged = It should do about 6840 damage
    
    Fully charged = 8640 damage
    
    Remember that on the higher difficulties, the opponent will regularly 
    teleport of out the way of the Kamehameha. So make sure that it will 
    hit them, before using it! Also, if you used the Kaio-ken power up 
    before using the Kamehameha however, then –
    
    Non charged = 5280 damage
    
    Halfway charged = It should do about 7500 damage
    
    Fully charged = 9480 damage
    
    
    Kaio-ken attack
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges
    
    This is a cool rush move. It replicates the Kaio-ken attack that he 
    used on Nappa in the Saiyan saga. Remember, the attack he used to 
    beat him with? Make sure that you are close to the opponent before 
    using this attack, as Goku doesn’t travel far whilst using it. Goku 
    lunges toward his opponent and knocks them up into the sky for 760 
    damage, he then flies above them and knocks them to the ground making 
    the 760 points of damage – 1520 damage. Finally, he moves quickly, 
    back to the ground where he catches the falling opponent and drops 
    them to the floor making the total damage of this attack – 6010 with 
    3 hits. If you use the Kaio-ken power up move before using the Kaio-
    ken attack however... Goku lunges toward his opponent and knocks them 
    up into the sky for 1380 damage, he then flies above them and knocks 
    them to the ground making the 1380 points of damage – 2760 damage. 
    Finally, he moves quickly, back to the ground where he catches the 
    falling opponent and drops them to the floor making the total damage 
    of this attack – 11000 with 3 hits.
    
    And now, Goku’s most power attack and one of the most damaging moves 
    in the entire game, it’s the;
    
    
    Spirit Bomb
    
    How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + 
    Down + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges
    
    Okay, firstly remember that you CANNOT use the Spirit Bomb attack 
    unless you have used the Give me energy! Blast 1 move. Goku teleports 
    right under his Ultimate Attack, shouts “Here it comes!” and hurls 
    the big sphere of pure energy right at his opponent! Now I’m going to 
    list all the damages that this devastating attack can cause;
    
    Charged once – No Kaio-ken = 16800 damage
    Charged twice – No Kaio-ken = 15200 damage
    Charged thrice – No Kaio-ken = 33600 damage
    
    Charged once – Kaio-ken is activated = 18480 damage
    Charged twice – Kaio-ken is activated = 27720 damage
    Charged thrice – Kaio-ken is activated = 36890 damage
    
    I’m now going to list the damages that can be achieved with a maxed 
    out Goku. To max him out (A.K.A. get him to level 160), equip 5 Title 
    [Tenkaichi]’s or 5 Kiss of 18’s on him. 
    
    Charged once – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 25550 damage
    Charged twice – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 38290 damage
    Charged thrice – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 51100 damage
    
    Charged once – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 30520 damage
    Charged twice – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 45710 damage 
    Charged thrice – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 60970 damage!
    
    So yeah, now do you see why it’s known as one of the most powerful 
    attacks in the game? Do ya?? Of course you do. A fully charged Spirit 
    Bomb can be incredibly difficult to dodge, so use that if you want to 
    end the fight quickly, or show your friends up! 
    -----
    
    Okaly dokaly! Transform into a Super Saiyan! And by that I mean press 
    the (R3) button to make Goku transform into an SSJ...  Whatever, lets 
    just take a look at SSJ Goku’s Blast moves! Up first we have;
    
    Wild Sense
    
    How to do it = [L2] + O
    Cost – 3 Blast Stocks
    
    This is a very handy little move and it can come in very handy if 
    you’re having trouble with a constantly attacking opponent. It looks 
    as if Goku just does a weird movement and drains 3 quarters of his 
    blast stock, but something in fact has happened. When the opponent 
    next attacks you, hit that Circle button and Goku will teleport next 
    to them and knock them away! This only happens once, so save up some 
    more Blast Stocks if you wish to use it again.
    
    Saiyan Soul
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + O
    Cost – 2 Blast Stocks
    
    This is a cool little Blast 1 move. Goku performs the exact same 
    movements he would do if he were powering up and glows with golden 
    energy, while stating “Don’t hold back!” Now, the strength of his 
    melee attacks and the power of his Blast 2’s and Ultimate Blast have 
    become more powerful. Goku will even gain a weaker form of the Brick 
    Wall effect – ki blasts will not cause him to flinch and much weaker 
    characters attacks will experience great difficulty in moving him.  
    You can keep using Saiyan Soul to keep on increasing your attack 
    power, but it caps at 5. Meaning that if you use the Saiyan Soul 
    after 5 times, you’re just wasting your Blast Stocks, as Goku will 
    not gain more power! Now, I’ll list some of the increasing damages 
    caused by using Saiyan soul 1 – 5 times;    
    
    Normal Combo (Square x5, X, Square x5) – 
    
    0 Saiyan Souls = 4470 damage
    1 Saiyan Souls = 4660 damage
    2 Saiyan Souls = 4830 damage
    3 Saiyan Souls = 5000 damage
    4 Saiyan Souls = 5310 damage
    5 Saiyan Souls = 5480 damage
    
    Grab Move (Up + X) – 
    
    0 Saiyan Souls = 2980 damage
    1 Saiyan Souls = 3100 damage
    2 Saiyan Souls = 3220 damage
    3 Saiyan Souls = 3330 damage
    4 Saiyan Souls = 3510 damage
    5 Saiyan Souls = 3630 damage
    
    Angry Kamehameha (Fully Charged version) – 
    
    0 Saiyan Souls = 10010 damage
    1 Saiyan Souls = 10430 damage
    2 Saiyan Souls = 10780 damage
    3 Saiyan Souls = 11200 damage
    4 Saiyan Souls = 11760 damage
    5 Saiyan Souls = 12180 damage
    
    Meteor Smash (Including the damage the opponent takes when they 
    connect with the ground) – 
    
    0 Saiyan Souls = 10520 damage
    1 Saiyan Souls = 10920 damage
    2 Saiyan Souls = 11320 damage
    3 Saiyan Souls = 11710 damage
    4 Saiyan Souls = 12310 damage
    5 Saiyan Souls = 12710 damage
    
    Instant Kamehameha – 
    
    0 Saiyan Souls = 14020 damage
    1 Saiyan Souls = 14580 damage
    2 Saiyan Souls = 15140 damage
    3 Saiyan Souls = 15690 damage
    4 Saiyan Souls = 16530 damage
    5 Saiyan Souls = 17080 damage
    
    Now it’s onto his Blast 2 moves;
    
    Angry Kamehameha
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges
    
    Oh yes! This is the move he used to defeat Frieza with on Namek! Goku 
    uses only one hand to launch his Kamehameha attack. This is probably 
    my favorite version of the Kamehameha. The Angry Kamehameha (like all 
    the others) is chargeable. Here, I’ll list the various damages for 
    you;
    
    Non charged = 5040
    
    Halfway charged = About 7840 damage
    
    Fully Charged = 1010010 damage
    
    There are only 2 things that I don’t like about this attack. The name 
    “Angry Kamehameha” doesn’t really suit it. I’d prefer Kamehameha of 
    Rage, heck I’d even take One Handed Kamehameha... Secondly, Goku says 
    “DARN YOUUUU!!!” when he performs it. Why does he say darn you?? It 
    should have at least been damn you or something like that. Here’s 
    hoping that he yells “YOU FOOOOOOOL!!!” when using this attack in 
    Budokai Tenkaichi 3!
    
    Meteor Smash
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges
    
    This is Goku’s personal Rush move. He kicks his opponent away and 
    then slugs them with his fist, sending them even farther away. 
    Teleporting right behind them, he does a small combo, ending with him 
    kneeing his opponent in the back and then smashing them back down 
    onto the ground with his fists!  This will produce an attack that 
    does 10520 damage spread amongst 11 hits. Use this move if you want 
    to surprise the opponent. Goku travels quite far when he uses this 
    rush move, so use it when in a jam. If you want, amp up the damage it 
    does with a few Saiyan Souls. You can see how much damage it does in 
    the Saiyan Soul damage section a little bit above this text you’re 
    reading right now!
    
    Okay then, its Ultimate Blast time!  
    
    Instant Kamehameha 
    
    How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + 
    Down + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 4 ki gauges
    
    “Here goes!” says Goku as he looks toward the sky as if to plan a 
    strategy. He then proceeds to elbow the opponent and knock them into 
    the air, only to knock them back onto the ground a second later. He 
    begins to charge his most famous blast “KA... ME... HA... ME...” as 
    the opponent tries to rush him. However, the ever resourceful Goku 
    IT’s to their side and releases the blast “HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!” and the 
    opponent is flying away! This attack is a different version of the 
    one he used on Perfect Cell in the Cell Games Tournament. In the 
    Anime, Goku charged his Kamehameha in the air as if to shoot it at 
    the Earth and cell, but he used his Instant Transmission technique at 
    the last second to appear right in front of Cell. THAT’S when he 
    launched his attack! This move will produce 21 hits at 14020 damage. 
    If you want, then spice up its damage rating with a few Saiyan Souls! 
    Goku doesn’t travel very far when rushing at his opponent to use this 
    move. So make sure that he is close when you want to use it.
    -----
    
    Woah, where do you think you’re going? We’ve still got 2 more forms 
    worth of Blast Moves to get through yet! Press that (R3) button to go 
    into Super Saiyan 2 form!
    
    Ahem, the Blast 1 moves;
    
    Instant Transmission
    
    How to do it = [L2] + O
    Cost – 2 Blast Stocks
    
    I love this B1 move! This is the technique that Goku learned while he 
    was staying on the Planet Yardrat, straight after his epic battle 
    with the tyrant known as Frieza. Goku places both his index and 
    middle fingers on his forehead and instantly appears behind his 
    opponent. This technique can make some of the most difficult battle a 
    whole lot easier! My advice is to wait for the opponent to launch a 
    Blast 2 attack at you and then use Instant Transmission. Goku will 
    appear right behind his opponent while their still in the attack pose 
    allowing you to do more damage because you’ll be attacking them from 
    behind. This is a great little move to use and is very fun to abuse! 
    Hehe, rhyme! 
    
    
    Full Power
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + O
    Cost – 3 Blast Stocks
    
    “Here goes!” says Goku quickly, as he does a small movement with his 
    hands. This moves does exactly what it says on the tin... erm command 
    list – It gets you Full Power! Goku enters Max Power mode, also 
    acquiring all the stat upgrades in the process. Use this move if you 
    want to use a Blast 2 or your Ultimate Blast move. Be warned however, 
    that Goku’s ki charging speed will be halved when the duration of 
    this Max Power mode comes to an end. To shake off this nasty little 
    side effect, simply power up into Max Power mode again, but by 
    yourself this time. 
    
    Blast 2 moves! NAO!!
    
    Meteor Smash
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 4 ki gauges
    
    If you think that this move is exactly the same as the last rush... 
    then you’re absolutely correct. Nothing changes except it does some 
    more damage and costs 1 more ki gauge to perform. SSJ2 Goku’s Meteor 
    Smash will now do 11530 points of damage to your opponent. 
    
    Bring on the Ultimate Blast!
    
    Super Kamehameha
    
    How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + 
    Down + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges
    
    Super Kamehameha?? Is that the best move they could give to SSJ2 Goku 
    for his Ultimate?? Whatever. “Full power!” spouts Goku as he charges 
    up a bigger than usual Kamehameha wave. He then releases the beam 
    unto his unfortunate opponent, effectively causing 14800 points of 
    damage, spread across 8 hits. Be sure to use this attack when you 
    know the opponent isn’t expecting it, because this is not a rush type 
    move. It would be nice if it was, but it isn’t. Oh yeah, the Super 
    Kamehameha of Super Saiyan 2 Goku doesn’t come cheap either, at 5 ki 
    gauges required to use this attack be sure that you have ki to spare. 
    Also, if you used the Full Power B1 move before using the super 
    Kamehameha then it will end up doing 15440 points of damage. It’s not 
    his best Ultimate blast.

    *Grabs you and sits you back down on your chair* Still not done!  
    Press the (R3) button one more time and let us examine Super Saiyan 3 
    Goku’s Blast Moves! Like all his other forms, we’ll be starting out 
    with his Blast 1 moves;
    
    Instant Transmission
    
    How to do it = [L2] + O
    Cost – 2 Blast Stocks
    
    Good news, Instant Transmission’s back baby! You won’t be able to use 
    it as much as SSJ2 Goku could however, due to the fact that SSJ3 Goku 
    only has 3 Blast Stocks to spare, while SSJ2 had 4 of them. IT is 
    exactly the same as the last time – You can get behind the opponent 
    and deal more damage.
    
    Power up to the Very Limit
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + O
    Cost – 3 Blast Stocks
    
    This move is exactly the same as SSJ2 Goku’s Full Power Blast 1 move. 
    the only difference is the name. Power up to the Very Limit, like 
    Full Power, gets you straight into Max Power mode with all of the 
    stat upgrades. It also lowers your ki charging speed after the Max 
    Power phase has ended. 
    
    Blast 2 moves, Blast 2 moves!!
    
    Super Kamehameha
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Triangle
    Ki cost – 4 ki gauges
    
    Super Saiyan 2 Goku’s rather disappointing Ultimate Blast returns as 
    a Blast 2 move for his SSJ3 counterpart. It still does a lot of 
    damage and it still costs a lot of ki (4 ki gauges!!). The only 
    difference to the super Kamehameha now is that it is chargeable. Here 
    are the damages you can achieve with it (I’ll also include the 
    damages that you would cause if you used Power up to the Very Limit 
    beforehand); 
    
    Non charged = 6540 damage
    
    Half way charged = It should cause about 9720 damage
    
    Fully charged = 12360 damage
    
    Also, note that it does take time to fully charge. It will take 3 
    seconds to charge the Super Kamehameha fully.
    
    
    Super Explosive Wave
    
    How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle
    Ki cost – 4 ki gauges
    
    No this move looks impressive! Goku releases a (what do you think?) 
    Super Explosive Wave that does 5 hits and 8350 points of damage. If 
    however, you used the Power up to the Very Limit B1 move before using 
    this, then it will do 10600 damage to the enemy. This can be a great 
    move for ending a battle with. Use this move when in a real jam. 
    Also, you know how when a character wants to use a Blast 2, or an 
    Ultimate Move and he or she always has to hop back a little if the 
    opponent is too close? Well, the Super Explosive Wave is another 
    story! Goku (and the other characters that can use Super Explosive 
    Wave) can use this devastating Blast 2 move without hopping back a 
    little bit! A very useful Blast 2 move we have here.  
    
    Okay then, one more attack and we’re done! Its time for his 
    impressive Ultimate Blast, named;
    
    Super Dragon Fist 
    
    How to use it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + 
    Down + Triangle
    Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges
    
    Hehe! This attack will look very familiar to you if you have seen 
    Dragonball Z movie 13 – Wrath of the Dragon! Goku uses this very 
    technique to destroy the gigantic monster called Hildegarn. SSJ3 Goku 
    rushes up to his opponent and bats them away with his fist before 
    exclaiming “If I don’t who will?? DRAGON FIST!!” The doomed opponent 
    can only watch on in horror as Goku charges toward them with a punch 
    that emits what looks like a golden Shenron. This powerful attack 
    does 12 hits and 18010 points of damage! Cool huh? Of course, if you 
    used that Power up to the Very Limit B1 move before using the Super 
    Dragon Fist, then it will end up doing 19090 damage to the 
    unfortunate opponent.
    
    And that’s all for Goku’s moves!
    -------------------
    
    VII) How to use Goku
    
    Well, he has many different forms, so there are a good variety of 
    moves to bamboozle your opponents with. Unfortunately, poor old Goku 
    suffers from that dreaded No Stun First Hit Syndrome, meaning that 
    all his punches after the first one can easily be blocked by the 
    enemy. Another weird thing is that Goku has quite a bit of trouble 
    making giants and Oozaru’s flinch, even his Super Saiyan 2 form is 
    crap at making giant characters flinch, at least in the first part of 
    the combo that it. Remember to time his charged blasts, so that the 
    opponent will rush right into them. When in SSJ2 and SSJ3 form, use 
    that Instant Transmission straight after the opponent has launched a 
    Blast 2 move and then unload a combo on them! Cycle through all of 
    his forms and use the moves that you feel are right for the battle 
    you’re in!
    -------------------
    
    VIII) Vs quotes
    
    Have Goku fight the corresponding characters to initiate some special 
    dialogue between the 2 of them. Also, keep an eye out for the 
    glitches in this section... apparently Goku thinks that he’s Frieza’s 
    dad and that his son is his grandpa! O_o!! His SSJ form also seems to 
    confuse friend from foe, as he usually says “If you don’t give up 
    your evil ways, I’ll be here to stop you!” to most of his friends, 
    such as Yamcha and Tien.

    IX) Additional notes on Goku 
    
    Ki Blasts; 
    - Base Goku shoots 5 ki blasts
    - SSJ Goku shoots 6 ki blasts
    - SSJ2 Goku shoots 7 ki blasts 
    - SSJ3 Goku shoots 7 ki blasts
    
    Throws; All of Goku’s forms has the same throw. He picks his opponent 
    up by there ankle, spins them around and then throws them away. 
    Remember however that the damage increases with each form. Here are 
    the different damages;
    - Base Goku – 2450 damage
    - SSJ Goku – 2980 damage
    - SSJ2 Goku – 3150 damage
    - SSJ3 Goku – 3290 damage 
    
    Taunts; Press the [L1] button and the Up button at the same time to 
    taunt, when locked on to your opponent. Unlike his throw, Goku’s 
    form’s taunts are all different in one way or another. Here they are; 
    - Base Goku does a little stretch and says “What’s the matter? Come 
    get me!” 
    - SSJ Goku does 2 little hops while saying “What’s the matter? Comes 
    get me!” 
    - SSJ2 Goku does a little stretch with his arms while saying “Giving 
    up?”
    - SSJ3 Goku does the same stretch that SSJ2 Goku did, but says “Come 
    on!” instead of “Giving up?”
    
    - Take a look at SSJ, SSJ2 and SSJ3’s charged up ki blast. He shoots 
    a mini Kamehameha!
    
    - With Goku wearing costume 6, go SSJ and take a look at his hair; 
    it’s the same style that the animators did Goku with in his fight 
    with Frieza! It’s a really pale blonde colour instead of golden. This 
    doesn’t work with SSJ2 or SSJ3 hair however.
    
    - If you equip the [Halo] Z-Item on Goku then his character model 
    will now have a Halo above his head! This also works with Buu Saga 
    Vegeta . 
    -------------------
    
    X) Frequently asked questions
    
    Q) Is this your favorite form of Goku to use?
    A) Of course! Goku is (to me) the most interesting and varied 
    character in the game. 
    
    Q) Which Goku form is your favorite?
    A) Hmmm, hard to say really. I love using Base Goku for the Spirit 
    Bomb and I also love using SSJ Goku for the Costume 6 pale blonde 
    hair and the Angry Kamehameha. I love using SSJ2 Goku for the Instant 
    Transmission and I love using SSJ3 Goku for the Super Explosive Wave. 
    But if I really have to chose one... I’d say Base form Goku.
    
    Q) How many times has Goku died in the series? 
    A) Twice. Once after sacrificing himself to Piccolo’s Special Beam 
    Cannon in order to stop Raditz and twice after using his Instant 
    Transmission technique to get the self destructing Cell off of the 
    Earth and onto King Kai’s planet. Cell blew up immediately 
    afterwards, killing Goku, King Kai and Bubbles. In the anime however, 
    Cell also killed Gregory. You’ll also notice that there was a little 
    bit of filler inserted where Cell should have blown up. Goku and King 
    Kai are able to have a nice little conversation before they get blown 
    up. In that time, Goku could have IT’d everyone to safety. 
    
    Q) What about Kid Goku, or SSJ4 Goku? Are you going to do an FAQ for 
    those two?
    A) I dunno, I don’t really use those two that much, but you never 
    know... someday I might do one for them...
    
    Q) How many forms of Super Saiyan did Goku reach?
    A) Every single one of them. Including the non cannon ones, he 
    reached ; Gigi (fake) SSJ, SSJ, USSJ, USSJ2, Full Power SSJ, SSJ2, 
    SSJ3 and SSJ4. There were probably Full Power SSJ2, SSJ3 and SSJ4 
    forms as well, I can’t remember.
    
    Q) Does Goku have any good alternate costumes?
    A) *Angels singing* YES!! After 3 Budokai Tenkaichi 2 character FAQs, 
    I’ve finally done an FAQ for a character that has good alternate 
    costumes!! Goku has the most costumes out of anyone, at 6 outfits! 
    Here they are;
    
    1) Orange gi from the Android and Buu sagas. (You know, the outfit 
    he’s worn in every single DBZ game since Budokai 2?)
    2) Orange and blue gi with Kame symbol on it. (The one he wore at the 
    start of DBZ)
    3) Orange and blue gi with King Kai’s symbol on the back. (The outfit 
    he fought Vegeta with)
    4) Orange and blue gi with “Go” symbol on it. (The outfit he used 
    when fighting on Planet Namek)
    5) Tattered orange and blue gi (the orange shirt is gone, revealing 
    his blue undershirt and his pants have numerous little tears in them. 
    Goku is also sporting some scratches and damage on his face and his 
    arms)
    6) The best one! It’s the battle damage he received from his battle 
    with Frieza! Goku’s blue undershirt is hanging onto one shoulder by a 
    thread (literally!) and his pants are even more tattered than before. 
    Even more scratches and damage are shown on Goku’s body and his pants 
    and his boots are also dirtied. Go SSJ in this outfit and see what 
    happens!
    
    Q) How many voice actors has Goku had over the years?
    A) Oh man, tons. He’s had tons. I’ll add the one’s that I know of, 
    but I don’t know a few of the names. (I’ll only be listing Adult 
    Goku’s voice actors by the way);
    
    1) Masako Nozowa (original Japanese voice actress)
    2) Ian James Corlett (Early Ocean Dub voice actor)
    3) Peter Kelamis (Ocean Dub voice actor, just before the Funimation 
    VA’s took over)
    4) Sean Schemmel (Funimation voice actor – Goku’s current VA)
    5) Kirby Morrow (Later Ocean Dub voice actor)
    6) Jeremiah Yurk (UK dubbed DBGT voice Actor)
    7) Unknown guy for an episode or two in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber 
    (from the Ocean Dub, in between the switch from Kelamis to Morrow. He 
    sounded like an African American man)
    8) Crappy unknown guy from the UK dubbed DBZ movies (A.K.A. the He-
    Man Goku voice actor, or the Yugi Moto Goku voice actor. He sucked. 
    Big time.)
    9) Unknown guy from the English version of Dragonball Final Bout for 
    the Playstation 1 (I’m not entirely sure, but I think he might have 
    been voiced by Steve Blum. He sounded JUST like Blum, seriously)
    10) Unknown guy from the Blue Water Dub of Dragonball (Blue Water was 
    notorious for re-using voice actors, adult Goku got Dende’s voice 
    actor for crying out loud! That laugh he did was annoying)
    11) Nick Kazama (Reciting Goku’s lines, whilst watching episodes of 
    Dragonball Z)
    
    So yeah, quite a few voice actors no?
    
    Q) I’m a bigger Goku fan than you!
    A) *Beheads you* Oh fear, now I’m the biggest Goku fan again. ^_^

    XI) The Goku password section
    
    Here, I shall be posting some passwords for you to try out. I’ve 
    given each Goku a title too, to give you at least some form of idea 
    of the Goku you will be fighting or using.
