    Dragonball Z: Budokai
    Legend of Satan FAQ
    By Lagunathemoron/James Wardle
    Monday 24th February 2003
    
    Introduction: Dragonball Z: Budokai is one of my 
    favourite games on the Playstation 2. I have already 
    written a FAQ about Cell and now since it is half term, I 
    have decided to write another FAQ. This time, it is for 
    the secret mode, Legend of Mr. Satan mode, which for the 
    American version is called the Legend of Hercule mode. 
    The mode is pretty difficult at times; therefore I 
    thought to write a FAQ based on it.

    Section 2) Overview
    DRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGON
    
    You could classify Budokai as two games in one, as when 
    you select Legend of Mr. Satan mode, it takes you to 
    another title screen. Anyway, for those who do not know 
    or are just interested, the mode is basically a story set 
    in the Cell games. Mr. Satan (Or Hercule as he is called 
    in the United States) is the only playable character in 
    this mode, and you must use HIS moves, no custom ones. 
    The moves which you are given are:
    
    High Tension - PKG
    Present For You - KK->K->KE
    Dynamite Kick - PPPPE
    Dynamite Kick - ->PPPPE
    Dynamite Kick - ->PPPKE
    Punch - P
    Kick - K
    Block - G
    Gather Ki - <-G
    Satan Special - ->KPPPE
    Satan Critical Attack - P->PPE
    Satan Miracle Bomber - P+G
    Satan Ultra Dynamite - ->KKKE
    
    
    In this mode, you have to defeat a large number of Z 
    Fighters in certain circumstances. Some maybe defeated 
    normally, some with a strict time limit, one directly 
    after another and even an army of Cell JR. You have to 
    defeat ALL of the fights without dying once. The list of 
    fighters is :( In order of appearance)
    
    Yamcha
    Tien
    Krillin
    Android 16
    Trunks
    Vegeta
    Piccolo
    Cell Jr. X5
    Goku

    Section 3) How to Unlock
    DRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGON
    
    a)	To Unlock Hercule/Mr. Satan you must have come first 
    place in the World Tournament mode with ANY 
    character. Then after winning and collecting your 
    prize money you must go to the Edit Skills option on 
    the game select, it is the one with Mr. Popo on. Go 
    to Skill Shop and buy the Recommended Capsule (the 
    bottom one) off Mr. Popo. Now select World 
    Tournament mode once more and do the Adept mode, 
    again with any character. Win this mode and return 
    to Mr. Popo's shop and look at the recommended 
    capsule again, buy it and you will now have 
    Hercule/Mr. Satan.
    
    b)	To unlock Legend of Hercule/Mr. Satan mode you MUST 
    have unlocked Hercule and all the other characters 
    like Android 16, Cell and Trunks, well all of them 
    except The Great Sayaiman and do Adept mode in the 
    World Tournament again. Now get your prize money and 
    go to Mr. Popo's shop and buy the recommended 
    capsule, you will now have this special mode which 
    is accessible from the menu screen, it is the 
    seventh star Dragonball and has a rather funny 
    picture of the man himself.

    Section 4) Walkthrough
    DRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGON
    
    Battle I: Yamcha
    Time Limit: 100 Seconds
    Hercules Description: None
    Objectives: None
    Difficulty 1/10
    Strategy: This is the easiest fight in the mode, and not 
    because it is Yamcha. I have almost got a perfect ranking 
    on this mode. As soon as the battle starts, start by 
    punching him, show no mercy and keep hammering the P 
    button, activating Dynamite Kick once in awhile. If you 
    want a nice 8000 points or so, keep punching him until 
    your Ki is above three and activate Present For You, then 
    finish him off with physical attacks.
    
    Battle II: Tien and Krillin 
    Time Limit: 200 Seconds
    Hercules Description: Hmph! He was weaker than I thought. 
    Hey, you baldies over there! I'll fight both of you at 
    once!
    Wow... he has three eyes! I wonder what his glasses look 
    like?
    Objectives: Fight both Tien and Krillin, or your Health 
    won't recover! 
    Difficulty: 3/10
    Strategy: Not exactly difficult, but you have to fight 
    both of them one after another, without gaining any 
    health. Sounds harsh but it is easier done than said. You 
    can easily take Tien out like you did with Yamcha, with 
    punches and kicks, use Present for You for a quick kill. 
    Also when you battle Krillin, make sure your health is 
    high, try not to let it fall down to the yellow bar when 
    facing Tien and keep calm, it is easy using physical 
    attacks but use Present For You when desperate.
    
    Battle III: Tien and Krillin 
    Time Limit: 200 Seconds
    Hercules Description: too weak! I bet you're weak too. My 
    level of health is good enough to take on the likes of 
    you. C'mon! Uh, actually, I'm felling kinda tired. I 
    shouldn't have said that I'd fight them both at the same 
    time!
    Objectives: Fight Krillin without recovering Health! Can 
    your body take it?
    Difficulty: 3/10
    Strategy: Not exactly difficult, but you have to fight 
    both of them one after another, without gaining any 
    health. Sounds harsh but it is easier done than said. You 
    can easily take Tien out like you did with Yamcha, with 
    punches and kicks, use Present for You for a quick kill. 
    Also when you battle Krillin, make sure your health is 
    high, try not to let it fall down to the yellow bar when 
    facing Tien and keep calm, it is easy using physical 
    attacks but use Present For You when desperate.
    
    Battle IV: Android #16
    Time Limit: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: Hey, YOU! Wearing armour is 
    cheating! But it won't work against me, anyway! Ha ha ha 
    ha Whoa! That's a hard armour... Cheater!
    Objectives: You can't hurt Android 16 easily! Don't give 
    it a chance to attack!
    Difficulty: 2/10
    Strategy: The game's description of the android is not 
    exactly true; you can deal as much damage to him as you 
    would Krillin, Yamcha or Tien. You can get by just by 
    hitting him, but Miracle Satan Bomber is a good move when 
    stuck.
    
    Battle V: Trunks
    Time Limit: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: Whew! You're next. Huh? I'll cut 
    you some slack since you're just a kid! C'mon! OUCH! Oh 
    no! That hunka junk hurt my arms and legs!
    Objectives: Your hands and legs are injured! Use your Ki 
    to attack!
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Strategy: Hercule's legs and arms are not exactly broken. 
    However, this battle is a little hard, Trunks has a nasty 
    habit of blocking most of your attacks AND attacking, he 
    is fast so what I tend to do is attack him or counter his 
    attacks. Present For You really helps.
    
    Battle VI: Vegeta
    Time Limit: 60 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: What are you looking at?! Your 
    hair style sucks (Ouch!)! What were you thinking?! Gulp! 
    Ooog. I was bluffing and now my stomach hurts. But I've 
    gotta soldier on!!
    Objectives: Defeat Vegeta within the time limit to make 
    it to the bathroom!
    Difficulty: 9/10
    Strategy: THIS IS HARD! Not only is Vegeta fast and 
    powerful, you can hardly afford to waste time, keep 
    hitting him. You will not win this battle in time by just 
    kicking and punching, build your ki up to three and 
    unleash Present For You, do it twice if you have to! Use 
    moves which can be done when the time limit stops. Also, 
    try to avoid Vegeta's attacks as he likes to use Final 
    Bash. I have only managed to defeat Vegeta once without 
    using Present For You and I had ten seconds remaining, it 
    was still tough.
    
    Battle VII: Piccolo
    Time Limit: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: You look pale. Are you okay? But 
    I'm not cutting any slack! Icy isn't easy to become 
    champion! Ha. You look just like Evil King Piccolo! Uh 
    ok! I'm in BIG TROUBLE!
    Objectives: Piccolo the Evil King?! Fight even though 
    it's tough to gather Ki.
    Difficulty: 8/10
    Strategy: This is nothing compared to the next battle but 
    it is still difficult. Piccolo is just like Vegeta, only 
    you have much more time to defeat him, and he starts off 
    in his second form. Don't be put off; you can defeat him 
    with normal attacks and Dynamite kick without using 
    Present For You.
    
    Battle VIII: Cell Jr. X5
    Time: Infinite
    Hercule's Description: II got rid of them... what's this? 
    Who are you?! So you gotta gang up on me now, huh?  Bring 
    it on! These guys are monsters! I didn't hurt them at 
    all! 
    Objectives: Five Cell Jrs. Appeared! Focus yourself and 
    take them out!
    Difficulty: 10/10
    Strategy: This has to be the hardest fight in this game. 
    Defeating them with Gohan was easy enough, you could 
    retry and you had moves such as kamehameha, however 
    Hercule has no Ki moves. Do what the description says 
    though, when you have a spare minute, focus using LEFT or 
    Right and the Guard button. Do not take these guys for 
    granted, Gohan is small and could hit them easily, but 
    Hercule is tall and the Cell Jrs are far too small for 
    you to use most moves with. Try not to get attack and use 
    moves like Satan Miracle Bomber and Present For You! By 
    the way, did anyone else like the Cell Jr's character 
    face? Kill the bastards!
    
    Battle IX: Goku
    Time: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: Ya, all right, lemme try 
    something. Yer outta' yer league! Hey! Blond dude! I'll 
    deal with YOU! Ohhh, I'm a goner, he...he might be just a 
    bit too powerful...
    Objectives: Defeat Goku and Gohan using the same health!
    Difficulty: 9/10
    Strategy: The battle is easier than the Cell JR one, Goku 
    is just what you expected from Piccolo and Vegeta, only a 
    bit harder and you have to keep some health for Gohan. I 
    suggest using Miracle Bomber from the start, followed by 
    Present For You, you must dispatch of him quickly.
    
    
    Battle IX: Gohan
    Time: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: You're just a kid! Go and do your 
    homework, okay? What?! Respect your elders!! Huh? Well, 
    this looks like that blond freak I just fought. Ohh, I'm 
    too young to die... 
    Objectives: Defeat Goku and Gohan using the same health!
    Difficulty: 9/10
    Strategy: The battle is easier than the Cell JR one, Goku 
    is just what you expected from Piccolo and Vegeta, only a 
    bit harder and you have to keep some health for Gohan. I 
    suggest using Miracle Bomber from the start, followed by 
    Present For You, you must dispatch of him quickly.
    
    Battle XI: Cell
    Time: 100 Seconds
    Hercule's Description: Did I keep you waiting Cell?  Well 
    the laughter stops right here! I'll wipe he floor with 
    you and protect the whole world!  So let's rumble!
    Objectives: Defeat Cell
    Difficulty: 10/10
    Strategy: Remember how tough Cell was in story mode with 
    Gohan? That was hard but this is even harder. Cell had a 
    hard time whacking Gohan, but he will be hitting 
    Hercule/Satan much easier. Keep the fight going from the 
    direct start by using Present For you, then gather Ki and 
    use it again. You will have to dodge and block many of 
    Cell's attacks.

    DRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGONDRAGON
    
    Frequently Asked Questions
    
    Q) How do I unlock this mode?
    A) You need to have all of the characters with the 
    exception of The Great Sayaiman, get these extra 
    characters by playing through the story. Now beat Adept 
    Mode in World Tournament and visit Mr. Popo's shop and 
    buy the recommended capsule.
    
    Q) How do I unlock Hercule/Mr. Satan?
    A) Beat Adept mode with any character and visit Mr. 
    Popo's shop and buy the recommended capsule.
    
    Q) Your strategy sucks.
    A) I wrote this voluntarily, I use the best strategies I 
    think are suitable. If you have one yourself, please 
    contact me.
    
    Q) Nice FAQ, can I help out?
    A) Sure, send me a question or a suggestion and I'll add 
    it.
    
    Q) Can you use a custom Hercule/Mr. Satan?
    A) No
    
    Q) Can you save halfway through?
    A) No
    
    Q) What is the difference between Novice, Adept and 
    Advanced?
    A) Nothing much except for difficulty, novice is easy, 
    adept is medium and Advance is well... hard.
    
    Q) Krillin/Cell Jr are too hard to hit!
    A) Not exactly a question ;) but I think you should try 
    throws and such moves. If you have too much trouble, go 
    to Practice Mode and fight Kid Gohan for awhile. It is 
    also good if you catapult them in to the air.
    
    Q) Why haven't you put the Playstation 2 controller 
    buttons in to your commands and just put P,G,K and E?
    A) You see, there is going to be a XBOX and Gamecube 
    version, and chances are that Gamefaqs will put this FAQ 
    up for them versions too...
    
    Q) Who is Mr. Satan/Hercule?
    A) I know what you mean, you know who one is. Well it is 
    the same person. In Japan, he is called Mr. Satan and in 
    America and Europe, Hercule. However, for the videogames 
    he is known as Mr. Satan in Europe and since Gamefaqs get 
    both European and American users, I think I should put in 
    both to save confusion, although I have started even 
    more. Toonami thought that Mr. Satan was too offensive 
    for America and Europe due to religious reasons... They 
    didn't want Christianity involved so they sort of 
    switched to Greek... Hercule(s).
    
    Q) Can you access 'Another Area' on this mode?
    A) Yes. Continue to kick the opponent out of the area.
    
    Q) Hey man, I sent you descriptions but you havn't 
    included me!
    A) I am really sorry about this, about three people e 
    mailed me on the old computer which blew up, and several 
    sent me to my new one afterwards. If you notice this send 
    me a mail and I will add you. Sorry!
    
    Q) Is Budokai coming on the Gamecube/Xbox (Daniel Bracey)
    A) Versions for both formats are planned.
    
    Q) ITS HERCULE/SATAN NOT HERCULE/SATAN! (Numerous people)
    A) Calm down, I blame Funimation. And the creators for 
    not putting Supreme Kai or Vegeta's badman shirt in the 
    game.
