Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Cheats

Glitches

  • A Spare Place In The Capsule Tray

    This glitch only works with one of the characters who can use the Senzu Bean, Saiyan Heritage combo. (Goku, Kid and Teen Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, Raditz, Nappa, and Cell)
    Select one of the characters above and make sure that they have an empty capsule tray. Then, put down at most three capsules. Then, put down 1/3 Senzu Bean and then Saiyan Heritage. Then, put down a capsule that will take up the second to last capsule slot. Finally, replace the 1/3 Senzu Bean with a full one So you will have more place for capsules!

Glitches

  • Free levels in DU mode

    Here's how this works, take any character (I did this with Gohan), start DU mode, enter a battle, fight it, and that battle should give you at least one level. Then, quit out of DU mode WITHOUT SAVING, I repeat, DO NOT SAVE your game. Start DU mode again with the same character, and if you notice, you'll have the same level you had when you quit, but are back at the same starting point!

  • Improving the odds for still needed capsules to appear.

    At 99%, it's quite annoying to wait hours for a last capsule. You can improve the odds by buying everything that appears for the kind of capsule your last capsule belongs to (ability/equipment/item). When having 9 of a capsule, it won't appear in the shop anymore until every capsule in that kind has 9 as well, therefore improving the odds for the remaining capsule to appear! It works for rare specials (>10000 zenie) as well!

  • How to get Potara's Supreme Kai

    To get this Potara you have to play with Gohan (Adult) in the second time (DU). Do the same thing to get Supreme Kai. After the Battle with Fat Buu, you have to win this battle and then don't go to the red point. Go to Central City and next go to west cost and in a island no much big winth trees you found Potara's Supreme Kai.

  • Quickly Unlock Z-Z3 modes

    When you unlock Uub (kill Kid Buu using the Spirit Bomb) he only has to fight 3 characters to end his game (you still get credit when fighting on super hard, Z, Z2, and Z3). However, dont collect the dragonballs after the first time you beat DU otherwise you will have to fight Omega Shrenron which is nearly impossible to do in any of the Z modes.

    Contributed By: Chasers.

  • Silver, Gold, and Black membership cards.

    The cards can either be bought in the shop after you spend a certain amount there, or found in Dragon Universe by a character of high enough level. In DU, the cards appear at the same place for each character every time. For Goku, (probably the easiest character to get them with) they appear on an island just West-Northwest of the main continent. It doesn't matter how many times you go through DU, it is your character level that matters.

    UnlockableHow to Unlock
    Black Membership CardCharacter Lvl 30+, or spend 250,000 zenie in shop.
    Gold Membership CardCharacter Lvl 15+, or spend 100,000 zenie in shop.
