I also added Cell’s Arcade Mode dialogue. 15th March 2010 – Sorry for the wait guys and gals, there’s been too much stuff to sort out.

Okay, so I’ve noticed that there isn’t an FAQ for Shin Budokai 2 on GameFAQs and the game has been out now for quite some time. Maybe somebody is secretly doing one right now, I really don’t know. Anyways, Shin Budokai 2 is of course the sequel to Shin Budokai, the very first Dragonball Z game released for the PSP system. Its gameplay is essentially the same as its bigger brother, but with some alterations and tweaks. It features a brand new story mode which focuses on Majin Buu being resurrected in Future Trunks’ timeline. I know this won’t be the best guide for this game ever, but I just wanted there to be at least one of THESE FAQs for Shin Budokai 2. Also, if you read my Shin Budokai Trunks FAQ then you’ll remember I put that I wanted to try other guides. I will do my best to make this an in depth guide. I was a little hesitant to make this FAQ at first, but I sort of just gave myself a slap in the face, told myself to try something different and got on with it. Please remember that this is my first time writing a guide like this, so be nice!! ------------------- IV) Contact Details If you have any questions about this FAQ, then e-mail moi! My e-mail address is – email@example.com Please remember to read the guide thoroughly before asking me anything though. Chances are you'll find your answer! -------------------- V) Controls Okay, firstly we’ll get the controls down: In battle commands - Square – Rush Attack (light attack) Triangle – Slam Attack (heavy attack) X – Guard/Cancel Circle – Ki blast L button – Power-up Ki energy R button – Aura Burst Square (during Aura Burst) – Crash Attack Triangle (during Aura Burst) – Guard Break Attack Square + X – Throw Forward + Circle – 1st special attack Backward + Circle – 2nd special attack Up + Circle – Ultimate move Down + Circle – Transform (if your chosen character has a transformation) Towards your opponent + X – Teleport (time this with the enemy’s attack Back, Back + Up – Flight === Another Road world map commands – Directional buttons (D-Pad) – Move your character around Analogue stick (is this thing even an analogue stick??) – Move character X – Speed up character whilst moving forwards or backwards L button – 180 turn R button – Different camera angles *there are 3 to choose from) Circle button – Change enemy display Triangle button – Display ON/OFF ------------------- Main Menu Okay, there are seven things to choose from here. They are: 1) Another Road 2) Arcade 3) Z Trial 4) Network Battle 5) Practise 6) Profile Card 7) Option ====== 1) Another Road This is the story mode of Shin Budokai 2. This time, instead of just fighting, you now fly around a world map. Quite similar to Budokai 3’s Dragon Universe story mode, but without the freedom. The graphics also suck to high heaven. Anyway, lets conquer it shall we? ========= Chapter 1 ========= Okay, the only thing you can do here is press the X button to start the adventure. As you progress through the story mode, the other squares will become available to you and you can play them whenever you want. Press that X button and away we go! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In another future... Goku suffered and died of a heart condition, and Earth’s strongest defenders fell at the hands of the androids It is a world overcome with despair... This world’s lone surviving warrior, Trunks, returned to his past, where he encountered Goku. In the ensuing battles with the androids and Cell, he grew stronger... And now, with both the past and future restored to their original peace. The great cities have been rebuilt, and a number of years later, the World Martial Arts Tournament is held once again. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Future Trunks – The World Martial Arts Tournament, huh? I’ve been waiting a long time for this... I know I’m going to enter, but I don’t think I’m gonna tell Mom. It’s kinda embarrassing when she shows up to cheer me on, and heck, I have to enter! I’ve been pretty out of shape from all this working. Man, people are going to love this. It’s hard to believe the androids were once here. Wow. Is it time already? The finals are starting. I’d better get moving. Future Bulma – Oh, Trunks. You never were good at hiding things. He didn’t even mention the tournament to me when he left. He probably thinks it’d be embarrassing to have me watching. Yep. That’s my son! But he sure does work hard – at his job and with the rebuilding of the town. I bet his father would say something like “This tournament is just a silly game!” Urgh... it’s just like back in the day, when Goku and Vegeta were fighting. Even though I’m not in the crowd... I can still cheer him on! Announcer – Ladies and Gentlemen it’s been a LONG time! Welcome to the World Martial Arts Tournament! Future Bulma – Go for it, TRUNKS!!! Future Trunks – MOM! What’re you doing here?! Urgh... She always seems to find out... Well, I guess I’d better give her a good show! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The future was peaceful, but just as in the past, evil appeared once again... The threat to this peace, and the ones who would protect it, was here. Trunks would find himself at the heart of a new epic battle. Prologue Complete ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ Announcer – The World Martial Arts Tournament is about to begin! There’s a lot of powerful fighters. Who will come out on top? Future Trunks – I was sensing it earlier, but this guy just feels... strange... Kibito – So, you must be Trunks. Show me what you can do as a Super Saiyan! Future Trunks – What?! What’re you talking about...? Kibito – I need to know if you can really help us. I’ll tell you the details after you become a Super Saiyan. Future Trunks - ...Okay, if that’s what you want. You already seem to know about Super Saiyans. So while usually I’d prefer not to do it here... I’ll make an exception. HAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Babidi – Aha! There you are! Dabura – Hm? What’s this? He seems to have an impressive energy. Shall we steal it, Master Babidi? Babidi – Yes... I want to resurrect Buu as soon as possible. I’ll wait here, and you can do the rest, Dabura. Shin and Kibito were surprised and pleased by Trunks’ strength. But Dabura came and began stealing the energy of the tournament fighters... Realising this, Trunks went to fight Dabura, but... Future Trunks – What? Shin – Trunks, don’t go! Future Trunks – M... My body won’t... move! What’s wrong with me?! You’re with them! Shin – Calm down, Trunks! We’re on your side! You mustn’t fight him now! Don’t fight him! Let’s go Kibito! Future Trunks – Wh... Where are you going?! Let go of me! Babidi – Hmph. Looks like someone’s trying to interfere. The Supreme Kai! And he’s running away... No fun at all. Dabura – Hahaha! You won’t get away! Dabura began destroying the city to lure out Trunks. Seeing this, Trunks broke free, only to have his energy drained by Dabura. Dabura – This power is incredible! This boy’s pretty good. Are there more like him? Babidi – I’ve never heard of any such fighters. Let’s have a peek at his memories! Dabura – Very interesting... Babidi saw Trunks’ memories of the past, the time machine, Senzu beans... Babidi – Oh my! This is most interesting! Dabura – If we can get them to come here, their energy will let us bring back Buu! Babidi – Heh heh heh. Fascinating. We’ll retreat for the moment. Let’s go, Dabura! Dabura – Right! ####### -Earth- Objective – Pursue the running Dabura! South Land --- Difficulty : C Mission – 1 Chain Mission – 0 ################# ******* hell, that was a load of text. Anyways, press the X button! You’ll be back on the screen you saw just before the story section. Select the square with Dabura on it. Shin – Trunks! Can you see it? Future Trunks – What?! Dabura! Where’s Dabura?! Kibito – There. Future Trunks - !? You! You’re not getting away! Shin – Trunks! Please Wait! If you’re defeated, the world will be in great danger! Future Trunks – Who are you anyway? I’m not the one who let them out! Don’t stop me! Shin - ......Fine. But please be careful. Kibito! Kibito – Hmph! ...There. Your power if back to normal. Future Trunks – Its... true... My power is back. Thank you, Kibito, and...? Kibito – He is the master of all the Kai – the Supreme Kai! Shin – Kibito, never mind. Just call me Shin. Future Trunks – Thank you, Shin. All right! I’ll catch up with him soon! OKAY!! Here’s where the fun begins! You’ll be brought to the Customisation Screen. You’ll find yourself at this screen before every single world map section of the Story Mode. Press the Triangle button and King Kai will pop up to tell you about customising and boosters. (Of course, you could just read my section of Boosters in the guide. King Kai – Let me explain about the Booster screen and Customize, okay? Here you can assign your Boosters to slots to increase your power. One character has 9 slots, so you can set 9 Boosters at a time. At first many slots are sealed, so you’ll have to be careful. You can buy “Unlock Slot” in the Booster Shop to unlock one. Now, let’s talk about how to use Boosters. There are 3 kinds. There are “Normal Boosters”, “Power Up Boosters”, and “Ultimate Boosters”. A Normal Booster increases one basic stat like Life. They’re ranked from 1 – 9, which tells you how big of a bonus they provide! Next, Power Up Boosters. These improve the other Booster they point to. The effect follows the arrow, but only one affects a given Booster. Finally, Ultimate Boosters! These are something totally different! What they do is improve the power of your Ultimate moves! Amazing! But unlike a Normal Booster, they only upgrade Ultimate’s. Also, because of how much power they have you can only set 1 of them. And, that’s pretty much everything. Now you can power up your character! So go get ‘em! Trunks here has 4 of his slots locked. The top left, the top center, the top right and the middle right. You don’t have any money at the moment, so you cannot purchase any Unlock Slot’s. You start out with 3 Boosters. These are: Health up +1 Rush up +1 Smash up +1 Equip these if you want a slight advantage in the coming battles. If you are not happy with the placement of a Booster, then you can just press the Square button to remove it. Okay then, all set? Yep? Great, then let’s do this! Press the Circle button, move the cursor down to [OK] and we’re off! Trunks – Damn you, Dabura! I won’t let you get away with this! King Kai – Hey, Trunks! Trunks – That voice... I know I heard it in the past. Could you be... King Kai? King Kai – Yup. I guess I’m famous! Anyway, looks like you’ve got a heck of a fight. Trunks – I’m sorry, King Kai, but I don’t have time to talk! I have to stop Dabura! King Kai – Hold your horses! I know that, but I have some advice for you. Trunks – Th-Thank you...? King Kai – Good reply! Now, he’s attacking not just you, but the cities, right? Trunks – Yeah. He just keeps blowing up cities...! King Kai – Exactly! You aren’t his only target! He needs to destroy the cities! Trunks – Damn it! And it forces me to worry about protecting the cities! King Kai – And for you, if the cities are destroyed, you lose, even if you defeat him. If you’re faced with an enemy in a city, you should keep your distance. Trunks – Right. It’s hard to protect everyone while fighting, but I have to. King Kai – Right! Each city has a gauge above it, and when the opponent attacks, the gauge goes down, until finally the city will be lost! So be careful and make sure you don’t let all the cities get destroyed! Trunks – Right! King Kai – Oh, one more thing! When you are close to a city, you regain health. Not only that, but the city will start to repair itself when you’re there! Trunks – I see. So if a city is getting too damaged I should stop by! King Kai – Exactly! The status of the cities is displayed in the upper left! Trunks – Okay, I’ve got it! I’d better get going! King Kai – Good! Be careful now! Oh wait! I forgot something important! Your opponent can get health back by destroying the cities! Watch out! Anyway, you’d better get going! Hurry up and stop them Trunks! Trunks – Okay! Thanks again, King Kai! Here goes! Jesus, Mary and Joseph, how much text does there have to be?? In case you got lost because of their babbling, then I’ll give you everything they’ve just said in simple easy to read bullet points: * The percent of the cities is shown in the upper left part of the screen. * If an enemy starts destroying a city, its % will go down. * Beat that enemy and stay in place above the city. Its % will rise again and your health (if you lost any) will slowly refill. * If an enemy has lost any health (from a battering by you or a team mate) and he starts destroying a city, his health will slowly refill. * Try to keep each city’s % as high as you can for a better ranking at the end of each mission. Was that better? ^_~ Okay, you’re given a [Clear Condition]. [Clear Condition --- “Defeat Dabura in a limited time!”] Good lord! Look at those amazing graphics! </sarcasm> Anyways, you’ll now be controlling Trunks on the world map and you have 59 seconds to do your thing. You should see Dabura flying toward South Village, so fly up to him to engage him in a battle. But what’s this? Another Mission reveals itself! [Mission --- “Don’t let any city’s health fall below 70%!”] Resume flying up to Dabura. You should reach him before he starts shooting ki at the South Village. Battle time! Okay, if you don’t like the DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi over the shoulder camera then pause the game. Go to Camera Angle and press the Left direction button until it returns to the more familiar angle. This fight with Dabura shouldn’t be too difficult if you are familiar with the Shin Budokai fighting system. If you’re a beginner, then I’ve listed a few combos for you. Really, the only thing you need to watch out for in this fight is the time. Key =  = Square button /\ = Triangle button ---------------      ---------------     /\ ---------------    /\ ---------------   /\ ---------------  /\ --------------- >   /\ /\ --------------- /\ /\ /\ /\ --------------- /\ /\ /\  --------------- After the fight, you’ll get the ranking for that one fight. You’ll be graded 1 – 7 stars on Time taken, Tech and your Health. Okay, after being graded, you’ll be taken to a new screen. The words “Got a new Booster!” will appear at the top of the screen and you’ll be able to pick 1 Booster from 5 random ones. You won’t be able to see what Booster you’re getting, for example I got an Energy Blast up +1 Booster. You might get something different. After picking your free random Booster, you’ll be taken back to the world map screen where a quick little bit of trash talking with occur (this’ll happen after every fight in the Story Mode by the way). [Demon King Dabura has left the field.] MISSION COMPLETE! You’ll get another Booster for your troubles. There will only be one of them this time – a Power Up +2 Booster with two arrows pointing Left and Right. FIELD CLEAR! You will now be graded on how well you did. You should get a Z ranking and some more Zenie. Future Trunks has reached a new transformation stage! This means that the Trunks you are using has obtained his Super Saiyan form! A new Booster is added in the Booster Shop! You will now be able to buy all the +1 Normal Boosters AND all the +2 Normal Boosters. Feel free to head into the Booster Shop to buy a few. Anyways, you can now select the box with NEXT CHAPTER written on it. Pick that one. Trunks – HAAH! HAAH! How do you like that, Dabura? Dabura – So you finally caught up with me...? Babidi – Come on, what are you doing? Dabura – You’re Trunks, aren’t you? How about this? Trunks – What?! Dabura heads for a densely populated city and fires a massive energy blast! Trunks is able to take the blast, and protect the city from harm. But with the damage he’d already taken, he lost consciousness. Babidi – Oh my! That was close, Dabura. Dabura – My apologies, master. Babidi – Let’s leave before the Supreme Kai comes. Heh heh heh... Unfortunately, Babidi and Dabura got away. Trunks hazily remembered their conversation, about the time machine, and the Senzu beans. With this information, they considered what Babidi would do next. Babidi – Heh heh heh heh! We did it! Look! Those warriors from the past, and their energy is the same! Dabura – Fascinating. I’m sure he’ll enjoy this. Heheheh... Babidi – Let’s bring them along and make things interesting! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In another future world, something unbelievable has happened. Trunks and the others were at the mercy of the evil unleashed by Babidi. Can Trunks stop Buu’s resurrection on his own? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We’ll arrive at Chapter 2! But wait, we’re not done with Chapter 1 yet, so go back to the Chapter selection screen! Take a look at the TOTAL box on the left hand side of the screen. Your status look like this: =============== TOTAL =============== % complete..........003% City DF. ...........004% ------------------------ Okay, select Chapter 1 again. Select the square with Dabura’s face on it. Customise Trunks to your liking and let’s go! Okay, now we’re gonna fail this mission on purpose. Hey, relax I know what I’m doing. Okay, just stay where you are and let the timer run out, or enter into battle with the King of Demons and keep wasting time until it runs out. Defeat Dabura after the timer has expired, pick your random Booster and you’ll be back on the world map. [Demon King Dabura has left the field] TIME UP! MISSION COMPLETE! Get your free 2 way +2 Power Up Booster. CLEAR CONDITION FAILED! You can now see that you’ve unlocked the alternate path of Chapter 1! Select the square with Trunks’ face on it to play through an alternate storyline. Trunks desperately fought Dabura, but in the middle Dabura and Babidi fled. In reality Babidi was siphoning their energy during the entire battle. Trunks recklessly flew into battle, Dabura tried to blast him. Trunks - ?! Shin – Trunks! Kibito – Hmph! Dabura – Did... did I do it? Kibito – GAAH! Shin – KIBITO! Kibito – Are... are you all... right, T-Trunks...? Trunks – KIBITO! Shin – To think they could do such a thing... Kibito took the terrible blast with his own body to protect Trunks. Though Kibito saved him from one blast, another came shortly thereafter. With no means of healing him, they had to resort to medical treatment. With no one to oppose them, Babidi and Dabura are gathering more energy. Majin Buu – BUUUUUUUU! Babidi – EEHEEHEEHEHEE! He’s back! Majin Buu is reborn! It took a lot of work. Hey, Majin Buu! Go and destroy that town for me! Understand? Go, destroy! Majin Buu - ...... Majin Buu was resurrected, but he killed Dabura in short order. Where at first he heeded by Buu, Babidi himself was also killed. With no orders, Buu simply went on destroying, purely for innocent fun. Trunks – Oh man... Look what happened while I was away... While he was bust with medical treatment, the world was being destroyed. Though injured, he was the only one who could face Majin Buu... You’ll now be thrust into a fight. No flying around parts. You will be playing as Majin Buu (er... the fat one) and your opponent will be Super Saiyan Future Trunks. This fight is a lot less restrictive than the previous one – there is no timer and you start out with 1 and a half more health bars than Trunks. Just in case, I have listed a few of Majin Buu’s combo’s for you. ------------------       ------------------      /\ ------------------     /\ ------------------    /\ ------------------ /\ /\ /\ /\ /\ ------------------ /\     ------------------ <    /\ ------------------ <     ------------------ Oh yeah, note how Buu’s baseline ki bars are at 5. His ki naturally raises to 5 if they are under that number. Try to get off an Ultimate move if you can. It’s chargeable and has a wide range. Complete this fight and you’ll unlock [Sheet No. 13]! You’ll also get 3 new items in the shop. Select the box that says [END]. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With the death of Trunks, the fate of the world was sealed. Buu destroyed the world, and then the universe, then turned to the Kai’s. Those who could’ve stopped Buu were long gone... The world will soon return to nothingness... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Wow, pretty sad huh? Don’t worry though, that was just a “what if” ending. The game is littered with them! ========= Chapter 2 ========= Trunks – HAAH! HAAH! How do you like that, Dabura? Dabura – So you finally caught up with me...? Babidi – Come on, what are you doing? Dabura – You’re Trunks. aren’t you? How about this? Trunks – What?! Dabura heads for a densely populated city and fires a massive energy blast! Trunks is able to take the blast, and protect the city from harm, But with the damage he’s already taken, he lost consciousness... Babidi – Oh my! That was close, Dabura. Dabura – My apologies, master. Let’s leave before the Supreme Kai comes. Heh heh heh... Unfortunately, Babidi and Dabura got away. Trunks hazily remembered their conversation, about the time machine, and the Senzu Beans. With this information, they considered what Babidi would do next. Babidi – Heh heh heh heh! We did it! Babidi – Look! Those warriors from the past, and their energy is the same! Dabura – Fascinating. I’m sure he’ll enjoy this. Heheheh... Babidi – Let’s bring them along and make things interesting! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In another future world, something unbelievable has happened. Trunks and the others were at the mercy of the evil unleashed by Babidi. Can Trunks stop Buu’s resurrection on his own? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Okay! Now the story really kicks off. Okay, you’ll be back at the path screen now. The only place you can go is up and right to the box with Dabura’s ugly mug on it, so let’s go there! On the way to the Western Capital, Trunks came across Korin. While they talked, Korin Tower came under attack, and Korin had to get away. Trunks explained the situation to the bewildered Korin... Trunks - ...I think that pretty much sums it all up. Korin – I see... So that’s what happened...? Korin – I know! You’d best take these with you! Trunks – What’s... Trunks – Senzu Beans! Korin – We had to leave in a hurry, but I did at least bring these with me. Trunks – Thank you! Korin – Heh heh heh. Korin – More importantly, shouldn’t you hurry to the Western Capital? Trunks – That’s right! They’re in trouble there! Thanks again! Korin – Be careful know... Trunks – My mom lives there too. I’ve got to hurry before anything happens. Okay, you’ll be taken to the Booster screen again. Customise Trunks as you see fit. Purchase some level 2 Boosters with your Zenie and equip them if you want and let’s go! You’ll now be at the world map screen. Dabura – Heh heh heh. Yes. Let’s play some more. Trunks – We’d finally rebuilt this town. Trunks – Dabura! I won’t let you destroy any more! Dabura – Oh really...? You think you can defeat me, the king of the Demon World? King Kai – Hey, Trunks! Those are Senzu beans you’re carrying, right? King Kai – But I suspect you don’t know how they work, right? Let me teach you! Trunks – O-Okay. Thank you! King Kai – If someone eats one, their injuries will be completely healed! King Kai – How about that? It’s scary how great they are, right? Hah! Trunks – R-Right... Um... I, kinda... I knew that much. King Kai – What?! O-Oh really...? Aren’t you boring. At least act surprised... King Kai – Well, anyway, no matter how bad it looks, a Senzu can fully heal you. King Kai – Of course, if you lose a battle with none left, it’s Game Over, you know. King Kai – Oh, and you can see how many you have left in the lower left of the screen. Trunks – Okay, got it! But, can’t my opponents do the same thing? King Kai – Yup! They can have them too, so look at the screen to check how many. King Kai – Beat them and keep beating them! Go on, Trunks! Trunks – Right, King Kai! In case you didn’t get all of that: * You start out with 3 Senzu Beans, treat them as lives * If an opponent defeats you, you lose one life * You can give an ally of yours, one of your lives by flying up to them * Your enemy will never give their allies lives * Beat your enemies and take away all their lives. Got that? Okay, let’s go! ################ CLEAR CONDITION “Defeat Dabura!” ################ Dabura will be joined by enemies such as Frieza and Cell... only they’re not the real Frieza and Cell – they are in fact puppets made by Babidi. Both Frieza and Cell have 1 life each. Fly forward a little bit. MISSION! “Don’t let any city’s health fall below 40%!” Remember that you can keep check on each city’s percentage by looking at the top left hand corner of the screen. By now, anomies should be blasting away at a city or two. Let’s go after... Cell first! Fly into him to start a fight. He starts out with less than 3 bars of health. If you equipped a Ki Booster or two then you should be able to use an Ultimate Attack on him... if he doesn’t block it that is. Keep close to him and hit him with your physical attacks. If he damaged you in the battle, stay above the city to heal a little bit before Cell comes back for more. Fly into him and kick his arse again. He will have less life seeing as you’ve made him your bitch before hand in the previous battle. After this, Cell will be vanquished from the field. The closest enemy to me after killing Cell was Frieza. Stay above the city to heal if needed and then go and fight him. Don’t worry if a city falls below 40%, we’re still fresh into the adventure. You can always come back when your favorite characters are pumped up on level 9 Boosters! Frieza starts out with 2 health bars. He’s not that hard at all really. He likes to circle you quickly and then hit you with a Smash attack. Double back away from him and them combo him. You may like to hit him with a Blast move. Alrighty then, fly into him again to initiate another battle. This time he’ll have only one life bar! Finish him off and we’ll have eliminated him from the field... and we’ll hear the infamous “Darn!” line. Right, now it’s time to get Dabura. The demonic bastard should be happily destroying a nearby city, so fly up to him and start that battle! He’ll be starting off with 3 health bars. It’s more or less the same stuff as before like what you faced in Chapter 1. Dabura is a sneaky fellow – after I defeated him for example, he flew up to another city and started blasting away at it. Remember, he’ll have even less life than before. After defeating him a second time, he flew straight to yet another city and attempted to try blowing that one up. Chase after him (heal if you need to) and battle him again. You will have accumulated at least 5000 Zenie by now so unlock a slot in Trunks’ Booster screen if you want to. Now all that remains is beating him one last time. Demon King Dabura has left the field. MISSION COMPLETE! Acquired 3000 Zenie. FIELD CLEAR If you did everything required, you should have gotten yourself a Z Ranking. If you did, congrats! If not, then keep at it you hear? You can only get better. A new booster is added in the booster shop Dabura is available! After holding off Babidi, Trunks hurried to the time machine... Bulma – Welcome Back, Trunks! Trunks – Mom! Thank goodness you’re okay! Trunks – Is the new time machine alright? Bulma – The time machine? It’s fine! But, why? Trunks – Well... Trunks explained the situation, and how without the Dragon balls, the only solution is to ask for help from the warriors of the past. Trunks – ...So, I want to use the time machine right away. Bulma – Okay; it’s already charged up enough for a round trip. Shin – Perfect! Then let’s go to the past and get Goku and the others. Trunks – Right. Trunks – Okay, mom. It looks like I’ll be going to the past again. Bulma – Right! Take care of yourself, Trunks! Trunks – Right. You be careful too, mom. Kibito – In any case, we’d best get moving. Trunks – Yeah. Bye mom! Okay, now we can head to the next chapter! BUT we’re not gonna do that, because there’s still some more work to do on Chapter 2, we need to get to those other paths. Highlight the box that says “START” and press X. Trunks – Ugh!... I can’t believe this! All that work rebuilding the town and now this! Trunks – Darn it! What can I DO?! I can’t... I can’t do this alone... Shin – Trunks! Get a hold of yourself! Panicking won’t solve anything! Kibito – That’s right. And you’re not alone. We’re here as well! Shin – We can’t stop Buu’s resurrection on our own! We need your power! Shin – The people of Earth are depending on you. Trunks - ...That’s true... But to stop them we have to beat Babidi and Dabura... Trunks – We have no Senzu Beans, and I can’t do this by myself... and... Trunks – Wait! I’ve got it! I’m NOT alone! I have a time machine! Trunks – If we go back in time we can ask my dad and Goku for help! Shin – Time machine? Trunks – Yeah! Awhile back, I used a time machine to travel to the past, and fought alongside the most powerful warriors! Trunks – Since then, we’ve continued developing the time machine, and we’ve made one that can carry multiple people. If we brought them here... Shin – A time machine?! This is incredible! Shin – Shin – If there are others who can fight like you, we might just be able to stop Babidi! Shin – Where is this time machine now? Trunks – The Western Capital!... I think my mother already went back there! Oh gosh, I hope she’s okay... Kibito – Your mother should be fine, but what about you? Trunks – I’m fine, but the fact that we have no Senzu beans worries me... Shin – No Senzu beans? Trunks – Yes... They were ruined... A long time ago. Shin – It’ll be fine, Trunks. Senzu beans take a long time to grow, but they couldn’t have disappeared completely. Shin – By now there should be new ones growing already! Trunks – Really? That’s great, but... I’m still worried about my mom... Kibito – Trunks, standing around tormenting yourself won’t help the matter. While we’re talking, Babidi could be on the move. Trunks – You’re right! Let’s get going! ~~~ Finally... Anyways, now you can select what path to take. The one highlighted is the mission we’ve already done, so press Down and then X. Ta da! The second path is now open! There should be a second picture with Dabura’s ugly mug on it, so let’s select it. ~~~ Trunks went to Korin Tower to stop Babidi from getting the Senzu Beans. But when he arrived, Dabura was already destroying the tower! Trunks – Stop it, Dabura! Shin – Trunks! Look! Trunks – Urgh... What happened...? Trunks – No! Is Korin alright? Dabura – Heh heh heh... Good, good! Destroy! Shin – Check after we deal with Dabura! We have to do something right now! Trunks – Right! ~~~ And we’ll be taken to the Booster screen. Customise and unlock a slot or two if you want/can. Oh, by the way, if you highlight Trunks’ name and press X, you’ll be taken to the character select screen, but you can’t select any other characters. If you press right or left, you can select Trunks’ Super Saiyan form. Choose whichever form you want and let’s go! ~~~ Dabura – Heh heh heh. So you’ve finally arrived. Trunks – Dabura! I won’t let you destroy any more! Dabura – Oh really...? You think you can defeat me, the king of the Demon World? ################ Clear Condition “Defeat Dabura!” ################ There will only be three cities to protect this time. You’ll also notice that the enemy A.I. has been slightly increased. Beat Frieza, who should be charging right at you as soon as this mission begins. After you defeat him: Chain Mission 1 “Defeat Cell in 35 seconds!” A timer will now appear at the top of the screen. HURRY!!!! Race up to Cell as fast as you can to preserve precious time. I’d also recommend equipping Boosters that raise your melee attack power. You can also equip a Ki raising Booster to lessen the time it takes for you to be able to use an Ultimate Move. If, you’re fast enough, then you will beat him with time to spare! Cell will have left the field after beating him. Mission Complete! Acquired 1000 Zenie. Mission! Chain Mission 2 “Defeat Dabura in 30 seconds!” I know, I know, another one! Race up to Dabura. If you press the X button while flying forward, you will fly at a faster speed and you should reach him in roughly 4 seconds. Dabura has now decided he likes to block and use the uber annoying Aura Burst Guard move which blocks ANY attack. Just keep pounding on him until he runs out of ki with which to use his Super Guard and then hit him with an Ultimate Attack if possible. Super Saiyan Trunks’ Ultimate works wonders, especially if you use the second part of the attack. Also, +3 Booster will now start appearing. Demon King Dabura has left the field. Mission Complete! Get your Booster which should be a +5 Special Attack Booster! +5!! If not a Special Attack Booster then it’ll be another one. +5 eh! Not too shabby! Field Clear If you were able to do as requested, you’ll have obtained that there Z Ranking! Cell has reached a new transformation stage! Trunks – How do you like that, Dabura?! Dabura – Heh heh heh... Most impressive, boy. Trunks – Something’s wrong! Dabura – I’m just a fake created by Babidi. The real me is at the time machine. Trunks – What?! Dabura – Heh heh heh... Do you really have time to sit around staring? Trunks – Grr! It turns out this Dabura was one of Babidi’s fakes, a fighting puppet. Trunks was shocked, and the puppet Dabura took the opportunity to escape. Trunks and company cut their losses and climbed the tower to find Korin. Trunks – Korin! Koriin! Kibito – With the Senzu beans at risk, he might not still be here. Trunks – Oh man... Korin – Hello there. You must be Vegeta’s son. Trunks – Korin! Korin – You’re Trunks right? Trunks – Yes! I’m Trunks! It’s good to see you! Thank goodness you’re alright! Korin – Heeheehee. Well, when that scary guy showed up... When the fighting puppet came, Korin hid himself inside a pot. Trunks explained the situation with Babidi to Korin. Trunks – But if all the Senzu beans are gone we’ll be at a major disadvantage... Shin – That can’t be helped. We should be thankful Korin is alive. Korin – Senzu beans? Actually I have a few saved up. It looks like you need them. Trunks – Really?! Korin – I took some while I was hiding, just in case. I’m glad I did. Heeheehee. Korin – By the way Trunks, you probably don’t have much time, right? Trunks – That’s right! The Western Capital! Mom’s in danger! Shin – Trunks, let’s hurry! If we don’t make it in time we’re finished! Geez this game has a lot of text. Right press the X button to begin the next mission. You’ll be back at the path select screen. There’s yet another picture of Dabura. You should also be able to see another path now. Straight underneath the Dabura picture you’ve just arrived at. It goes like this: [Boss]------[End] Ignore it for now and select the newly opened box. Trunks – The Western Capital... Mom, please be alright! Shin – Trunks! Look out! It’s Dabura! Trunks – What?! DABURA! Dabura – Heh heh heh... Did you enjoy playing with that copy of me? Trunks – Stop it, Dabura! I won’t let you go any further! Shin – Dabura! The Western Capital holds the time machine you’re after! Shin – Don’t you see the time machine could be destroyed with it?! Dabura – Heheheh. So it IS here! Dabura – Once I beat you I can look for it at my leisure. Let’s play a little! And we’re back at the Booster Screen. If you want you can equip that +5 Booster you just obtained. And now it’s back to the world map. Shin – Trunks, if the city is taking damage, the time machine could be damaged! Trunks – Right! My mom’s there; I won’t let him attack it anymore! Dabura – Heh heh heh. You have guts at least, but you’ll see how useless it really is. King Kai – Hey, Trunks! Those are Senzu beans you’re carrying right? King Kai – But I suspect you don’t know how they work, right? Let me teach you! Trunks – O-Okay. Thank you! King Kai – If someone eats one, their injuries will be completely healed! King Kai – How about that? It’s scary how great they are, right? Hah! Trunks – R-Right... Um... I, kinda... I knew that much. King Kai – What?! O-Oh really...? Aren’t you boring. At least act surprised... King Kai – Well, anyway, no matter how bad it looks, a Senzu can fully heal you. King Kai – Of course, if you lose a battle with none left, it’s Game Over, you know. King Kai – Oh, and you can see how many you have left in the lower left of the screen. Trunks – Okay, got it! But, can’t my opponents do the same thing? King Kai – Yup! They can have them too, so look at the screen to check how many. King Kai – Beat them and keep beating them! Go on, Trunks! Trunks – Right, King Kai! Clear Condition “Defeat Dabura in keeping West Capital’s health more than 30%!” There are 5 cities to keep an eye on this time. Fly forward a little bit and: MISSION! “Don’t let any city’s health fall below 40%!” Notice how we now have Android 18 on the field? Where the heck did she come from!? Let’s concentrate on heading towards West Capital first as Dabura can reduce it to below 40% quite quickly. West City is right in front of you, press X to speedily make your way towards it. Dabura has 2 health bars this time. While fighting him, if you want, try out Trunks’ counter move (Back + O). If Dabura hits you whilst Trunks is in this counter stance, then Trunks will jump over him and plant his boot into the back of the Demon King’s head in a move that looks like Trunks has watched the Matrix a few too many times! After you’ve beaten him, you get a choice of 9 count ‘em, 9 Boosters! Take your pick and let’s move on. Once you’re on the world map again, stay where you are to heal the city. Dabura should fly right up to you to start another fight. He now has 1 health bar. After beating him again, he’ll once again fly up to the city in a futile attempt to demolish it. Doesn’t he realise he can’t defeat you? Ai ai ai... For some reason (in my game at least) he had 1 health bar and a tiny bit of his yellow health bar. Demon King Dabura has left the field. Mission Complete! Acquired 5000 Zenie. Field Clear. If done correctly, you should get a Z ranking. Frieza has reached a new transformation stage! 3 new items are now available in the shop! Trunks managed to fend off Dabura and protect the time machine, but... During the time Dabura attacked Bulma! Trunks – MOM! LOOK OUT! Bulma – AAAAAAAH! Trunks – Oh man... That was close... Mom, are you okay? Dabura – Hmph! I missed. Babidi – Hmmm. What’re you doing, Dabura! Oh well, let’s get outta here... Trunks – Mom! Thank goodness you’re alright... Trunks – Wait, is the new time machine okay? Bulma – Oh, the time machine is fine. But why? Trunks – Well... Trunks explained the situation, and how without the Dragon Balls, the only solution is to ask for help from the past. Trunks – So, I want to use the time machine right away. Bulma – Okay; it’s already charged up enough for a round trip. Shin – Perfect! The let’s go to the past and get Goku and the others. Trunks – Right! Trunks – Okay, mom. It looks like I’ll be going to the past again. Bulma – Right! Take care of yourself, Trunks! Trunks – Right. You be careful too, mom. Kibito – In any case, we’d best get moving. Trunks – Yeah. Bye mom! And we’re done on that bit! Now you can select the [NEXT CHAPTER] box and head to Chapter 3, but firstly we’re gonna be unlocking and completing the other scenarios! Head over to the mission you’ve just done. Do the customising business and everything and we’ll be back on the world map (skip the dialogue if you want, you’ve already read it). This time head over to... erm... Android 18, she’s busy destroying City F. She starts off with 2 health bars and likes to use her barrier move. Fly into her again and finish her off. By now, Dabura should have destroyed much of West City. If not, take your time flying up to him and he will eventually bring the city’s overall percentage below 40%, but that’s what we want to happen this time. After you get a big MISSION FAILED on the screen, keep wasting time until he fully destroys the city. When he’s very close to nuking it, Shin will pop up and make a commotion about how West City is in danger, rather than trying to do something about it and distract Dabura or something... Anyways when the city’s % reaches zero, Shin will point out the obvious and says that it’s been destroyed. NOW’S the time to teach Dabura a lesson. Fly up to Dabura to fight him. Beat him the required number of times. Clear Condition Failed Trunks held off Dabura, but the time machine was destroyed in the battle. With his last hope extinguished, Trunks fell into despair. When Trunks lamented Gohan’s absence, Kibito suggested calling him. A human who has passed on can be brought back for just one day. In order to bring Gohan back, they travelled to otherworld. Trunks – Let’s hurry and look for his energy... Let’s see... Over there! When Trunks finally found Gohan, he was with Goku, who had died many years ago. Trunks – Gohan! I missed you! Gohan – Trunks? Trunks! Is that you? You’ve really grown up! Goku – Trunks? Back then you were just a baby! Gohan – Yes. After my father died I kept on training. Goku – Wow! So you can become a Super Saiyan? Trunks – Yes, thanks to Gohan teaching me! Trunks – Anyway, we have a serious problem... Trunks explained things to Gohan and Goku, and asked their help. However, Goku could not return to Earth a second time. In his place, Goku asked his friend Paikuuhan to join the fight. When they returned, the battle quickly kicked off. And now you’ll be brought back to path select screen. Notice how we’ve unlocked the other path? There are 2 possible endings for this scenario. Z ranking is bloody hard to get in this fight the first few times you try it. I recommend ignoring this for now if you are an inexperienced player and coming back when you have some powerful Boosters and characters. If you do have these powerful characters and +9 Boosters, then by all means try it out. I recommend Super Saiyan 4 Goku, Super Vegetto and Gogeta. Trunks – Gohan, Paikuuhan, thank you very much. Gohan – It’s too early to be thanking me. That’s one of Babidi’s puppets? Trunks – Yes. Let’s take care of this puppet and then deal with Dabura! Paikuuhan – I’ve been training for a long time. It’ll be fun to fight in the real world. Gohan – Don’t let your guard down. If we don’t go all-out we could get in trouble. Shin – Everyone, thank you. It’s time to finish Babidi and Dabura and end this! Trunks – Right! We’ll take care of Dabura! If you attempted to do this mission with the default characters, then you’ll notice on the Booster Screen that you now have 2 team mates! Trunks will be joined by Future Gohan and Paikuuhan (why do they spell his name in Japanese in the Shin Budokai series?). Anyways, unlock a slot or two with Trunks if you have the money. I was able to unlock all his locked slots at this moment. Customise Gohan and Paikuuhan and we’re off! On the world map; Trunks – There’s so many... Gohan – And these are all those fighting puppets? Trunks – Yes. But how could there be this many...? Paikuuhan – So we just have to beat all of them? This should be interesting! Gohan – Okay everyone! Let’s go! Trunks – Right! And once we beat all these puppets, you’re next, Dabura! Clear condition “Defeat Dabura in limited time!” Limited time is bloody right. You need to defeat all these fighting puppets on the map so that Dabura will arrive. It also doesn’t help that the enemies now have 4 health bars each and are highly evasive. Frieza is in his 100% final form. Seriously, this mission really takes the piss. Frieza has one life. Beat him and: Frieza has left the field. Mission! “All fighters must not lose a battle!” Crapping hell SB2!! Anything else? Do we need to hold the PSP upside down when we play too!? 2 Android 18’s are destroying City A. Beat one and: Android 18 has left the field. The enemy’s allies have arrived. You will be seeing this message a lot. When I say a lot, I mean a LOT! Another Frieza will arrive further making this mission even more difficult. Further more, your 2 allies will be battling by now – look at how fast their health is decreasing. And you’ll probably be hurting a lot too, but there’s no time to stop and heal!! Absolute madness. Beat the second 18 and: Android 18 has left the field. Guess what. Oh yeah. The enemy’s allies have arrived. Yup, that’s another enemy you have to beat in this extremely limited time. Don’t worry though, once you’re pumped up on +9 Boosters we’ll be showing these asses a thing or two about playing fair. If you are defeated, you’ll get a big “Mission Failed” across the screen. Don’t blame yourself if you lose, because the enemy A.I. has been upped considerably for this point in the game. +4 Boosters will also arrive now. It was round about this time that both my allies died on me. So yeah, basically, just fly around fighting whoever you want. We will be coming back here after we’re a lot better and stronger. Time up Clear Condition Failed Something new is available in the shop! You should wind up with a D ranking and the second ending unlocked. Below the following Ending is how to REALLY do this mission! Ending B: During the long battle Gohan and Paikuuhan’s single day on Earth ran out. With the two of them gone, Trunks had to fight alone. By himself, Trunks could not stand up to the enemy, and was destroyed. With Trunks gone, there was no one left to oppose Babidi’s ambitions. The world... is doomed. After we’re done with the main walkthrough, come back to this mission. The next part of the walkthrough (in the box) is for when you have powerful characters and +9 Boosters: ============================================== Gogeta is the character to use. Get his Special ATK stat up to 99 (or as high as you can make it). A great thing about Gogeta’s Big Bang Kamehameha (Forward + O) move is that the CPU hardly knows how to avoid it. Another great character to use is Super Vegetto. His special ability allows him to increase his power exponentially. Use that and his Spirit Sword Ultimate Move to deal heavy damage. Super Saiyan 4 Goku is another good choice. You can max out a character’s stat by using this setup (I’ll use Special ATK as an example: Upper left – Special ATK +9 Upper center – Power Booster +5 pointing left, right and down Upper right – Special ATK +9 Middle left – Power Booster +5 pointing in all four directions Middle center - +9 Ultimate Booster pointing in all four corners Middle right – Power Booster +5 pointing up, left and down Lower left – Special ATK +1 Lower center – Power Booster +5 pointing in all dour directions Lower right – Special ATK +9 And that should give you a maxed out Special ATK stat (99 is the maximum). To max out any other stat, just substitute the Special ATK Boosters for any other one of your choosing. But for now, raise Gogeta’s Special ATK stat to the max. Oh and pick him as the character you play as too! The enemies might teleport your Big Bang Kamehameha, but here’s the thing – if you perform the Big Bang Kamehameha at the start of the fight, then they’ll waste 3 bars of ki to teleport behind you and hit you. After this, use it non stop and power up when necessary. Also, make sure you charge it up to cause some severe damage to them. To save even more time, go and finish off the opponent’s that your 2 allies are squaring off against. Also, make sure you use Gogeta’s Aura Burst Charge move – it lets him regain ki extremely quickly! Here’s what you do in a nutshell; * Start off the match by using Big Bang Kamehameha. * If the opponent teleports it, then just get up, get close and use BBK again. * Use Aura Burst Charge (L button + R button) to charge up ki very quickly. * After your opponent has fallen after getting hit by a BBK, rush up to them and start charging your next BBK, when they get up, they’ll receive one on the face. In other words – spam the hell out of the Big Bang Kamehameha!! * Repeat step 4 until the opponent is defeated. Max out Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Super Vegetto’s Rush stat to have them dominate over their opponent’s. They will kill instead of being killed if you max out their Rush stats. Also, make sure you start Goku off in his Super Saiyan 4 form! And there we go! You and your team mates keep killing the respawning enemies. Keep ‘em coming, they’re not gonna beat you and your two powerful friends! Eventually, all the enemies will stop respawning (save one more time, it’s Android 18) and now you just need to finish off the remaining villains. After that, Dabura will FINALLY show his ugly self. Go apeshit on him for this entire mission. You need to beat him 3 times. If you want, you can have Goku or Vegetto wail on him for a little bit. You also have a chance of getting a nice +9 Booster from him! I did this mission with 58 seconds remaining on the clock using this strategy. Demon King Dabura has left the field. Mission Complete! (I got a +8 all directions Ultimate Booster for completion of this mission) Field Clear, enjoy your Z ranking! -_^ So you see? It is beatable! If you can’t manage it, then practice using Gogeta’s death move in other modes (with a higher difficulty than what you’re used to and pretty soon you’ll have replaced that D ranking with a nice lovely shiny Z one! This mission seems impossible, but it IS doable. Keep at it! ========================================================= Ending A: Babidi and Dabura were crushed, and Buu’s resurrection prevented. On this joyous occasion, the single day passed all too quickly. Paikuuhan was able to train, and Gohan saw Trunks, but they soon had to return. With the shadow of darkness gone, Trunks looks to the future... And we’re done with Chapter 2! Select the Next Chapter box to proceed to chapter 3. Will bringing the Goku and the others from the past really stop Babidi...? Filled with hope and worry, they board the time machine. How will the Z Fighters return to this world without the Dragon Balls? ========= Chapter 3 ========= Select Start! Narrator – Trunks used his time machine to return to the past. Narrator - ...And explained to Goku and the other Z fighters that Babidi has appeared in the future. Narrator – With no time to enjoy their reunion, they prepare to head to the future to face this new threat. Narrator – Meanwhile, what’s happening in the future? Goku – So this is the future huh? It doesn’t look very... umm... futuristic. Kid Trunks – Hey Goten! Check that out! Goten – Huh? What is it? Trunks, wait up! Gohan – Goten, don’t go too far! Vegeta – Hmph! We’re not here for sightseeing! I could care less about this future world! Let’s get this over with! Gohan – You know, I have to admit, I am curious about what the world would be like without us. Piccolo – It’s hard to imagine. What’s even stranger is the thought of meeting your future self here. Eighteen – Krillin! Relax. Stop worrying about Marron for a bit. She’s totally safe in the past. You’re going to give yourself an ulcer. Krillin – Yeah, yeah. I know. But I was so busy fighting Janemba all that time and... well, I’m just worried that she’s gonna forget about me. Goku – If that’s the case, then why didn’t you bring her here? Krillin – Well... I... ohhh... Trunks – Guys, I know you all feel pretty confident because you already dealt with Babidi and Buu... Trunks – but unlike your world, we don’t have any Dragon Balls here. Trunks – And you know what that means! Please, just try to be careful and take things seriously. Goku – Sorry Trunks. I am taking this seriously. Goku – But I’m just so excited about being able to fight here in the future. Goku – Okay-- Let’s just deal with Babidi and then you can show us around your world later! Trunks went to the past, and remembered fighting alongside those friends. It seemed no time had passed since the last big battle. Babidi – Heehee, for such a boring guy he’s given us something rather amusing. Dabura – This certainly is convenient for us, isn’t it? Babidi – Yes, it is. Their arrival will only hasten Majin Buu’s resurrection! Babidi – Once those fools are lured here, we’ll be able to take all their energy! Dabura – In that case, why don’t we go and destroy some more cities? Babidi – That could be fun, but... I think I have a better idea. Heeheeheehee! Trunks – What’s this?! Goku – This energy is massive... It’s... Dabura...? Krillin – Hold on! I’m sensing something somewhere else! Yamcha – You’re right. It’s not as big, but there’s a lot of them. Tien – In any case, we’d better get moving. Trunks – Thank you, everyone. But like I said, remember there’re no Dragon Balls. Trunks – And, these are all the Senzu beans we have. Goten – Oh, we brought plenty of Senzu beans, thanks to Korin. Kid Trunks – When did you have a chance to go to Korin Tower, Goten? Goten – Heheh. Shin – Excellent! This will definitely help, Trunks! Trunks – You’re right! With mine and Goten’s together, we have plenty. Piccolo – Hey! This is no time for playing around! Trunks – R-Right! Which way should we go? Phew! After that cutscene, you’ll find yourself on the Field Select screen again. The two objectives are; “Protect the cities from Dabura!” and “Protect the cities from attacking enemies!” Select the Dabura one. ((((Hey Nikku, select the Dabura fight in chapter 3!!!!)))) ####UNDER CONSTRUCTION #### ====== 2) Arcade Arcade mode is largely unchanged from Shin Budokai. You pick a character and fight through 10 opponents. As soon as you select Arcade Mode, you’ll be given a bunch of settings that you can change. These are: Game Difficulty: Very Easy – Easy – Normal – Hard – Very Hard – Z This determines how hard or easy your time in Arcade Mode will be. It also determines the amount of things you’ll unlock in the shop. If you complete Arcade Mode on Very Easy difficulty then you’ll get 4 new things, but if you do it on Z difficulty then you’ll unlock 14 new things. Completing this mode on Z difficulty is the best way to get things more quickly. Duel Time: 60 seconds – 90 seconds – 120 seconds – 180 second – Infinite Time This determines how much time each fight in Arcade Mode will be. If the time runs out and you have more health than your opponent, then you will win, if the opponent has more health than you when the timer expires, then he, or she, will win. Rounds: 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 This determines how many rounds each fight will be. You can get more Zenie if you pick more than one round. For example, if I get a Z ranking after completing a 2 round fight, then I’ll receive 2000 Zenie afterwards, rather than just 1000. In Shin Budokai 1’s Arcade Mode, your fighter had 3 special battles. The two fighters would converse before the battle. In Shin Budokai 2, a small conversation will precede every single fight. Every single character has a unique line of dialogue with every other character including themselves. The ones listed below are the ones I got at the time of writing this section. I’ll redo Arcade Mode a few times with everyone again to get more lines of dialogue. ====== Goku: Goku – There’s no chance you can beat me. I can tell even without having to fight. Cooler – Heheheh... I can see how you beat my brother. But this time won’t be so easy! Kid Buu – Ooogyagyagyagyagyaaa! Goku – Try not to blow up the world like you did last time... Broly – KAKAROOOOOOT! The slaughter starts with you! Goku – Why are you always so angry?! What did I do that was so bad? Gotenks – Heheh! Now I can go Super Saiyan 3 too! Goku – Hahaha! That’s amazing, you little brats! Now I can really go all-out! Goku – Hey, Krillin! It’s been a while since we had a match together. Krillin – Hey, wait Goku! You’re a Super Saiyan! Can’t you go easy on me? Goku – Hey Gohan! Let’s train a bit! Teen Gohan – Okay, dad! Gogeta – HAAAAAAAAH! Goku – A fusion of me and Vegeta, eh? I’m shocked he ever agreed to it... Goku – Gohan, it looks like you’ve been too busy studying to train, huh? Gohan – S-Sorry, dad... But I promise that I’m not completely weak! Vegito – Think you can beat Super Vegito, the strongest warrior in the universe? Goku – So this is me and Vegeta fused together? This looks like it’ll be really fun! Vegeta – I’ve been waiting a long time for this. It’s time to settle this, Kakarot! Goku – This isn’t gonna be easy to “settle”, you know. Here I come, Vegeta! ~~Ending~~ Announcer – Goku, you’ve shown us some really incredible matches! Goku – This tournament was really incredible! Announcer – (Oh man! Goku’s amazing! This is how a World Tournament should be!) Announcer – And your prize is 100,000,000 Zenie! Goku – Heheheh! Thank you! Hey guys! Lets all go get a bite to eat! Gohan – Dad, I’m coming too! I’m starving! Krillin – You’re awesome, Goku! I’m coming too! And so is 18! Android #18 – If that’s alright with Goku. Goku – Hey Vegeta, you come too! And Piccolo, come and have yourself some water! Vegeta – At this rate a hundred million might not be enough! Piccolo – Fine, I’m coming along. Goku – Come on, everyone! Announcer – Um, Mr. Goku? We still need to do the award ceremony... Goku – Sorry, but I’m not into that kind of thing. And you can come too! Announcer – Wh-What? O-Okay! Thank you! Announcer – Um... Ladies and gentlemen, your champion, Goku! ====== Teen Gohan: Teen Gohan – 18... Man, this is gonna be tough. Android #18 – Don’t expect me to hold back for you, Gohan! Teen Gohan – D-Dad..? Wait, Vegeta...?? Gogeta – Gohan, here I come! Piccolo – Gohan! You’re long overdue for some training. Come on! Teen Gohan – Right, Piccolo! Dabura – A little brat like you can’t possibly defeat the King of the Demon World... Teen Gohan – I can fight too! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Teen Gohan – I won’t... I won’t let you destroy this planet! Kid Buu – SHAAAAAAAAAA! Cooler – I’ll be killing you and any other Saiyan brats I find... Teen Gohan – Y-You’re Frieza’s... Well this time it’s going to be different! Super Buu – Ugaohhh! Teen Gohan – Wh-What’s with this monster... I can feel an incredible power... Future Trunks – It’s been a long time, Gohan. Why don’t we have a little match? Teen Gohan – Okay, Trunks! Teen Gohan – You’re Paikuuhan, right? My dad said he met a really strong guy! Paikuuhan – Oh, you’re Goku’s son! He told me about you. Show me how strong you are! Teen Gohan – Stop it, Cell! HAAAAAAAAA! Cell – Don’t get too cocky. I’ll show you true terror before I kill you. ~~Ending~~ Announcer – The winner, Gohan! Teen Gohan – Hahahaha... Looks like I won! Announcer – Thank you for the spectacular match! Teen Gohan – Uh... Um... Th-Th-Thank you! Teen Gohan – I want to thank my dad and Piccolo for training me! Announcer – I see! So Goku and King Piccolo were the ones who trained you? Announcer – I think I understand the secret of your amazing strength now! Teen Gohan – Haha... It’s not that big of a deal, really! Goku – Hey, Gohan! You’re the champion, so you’d better enjoy this! Piccolo – Yeah, Gohan! You’re strong! Be more confident! Teen Gohan – Right, Dad! Piccolo! Announcer – Our champion has a bright future ahead of him! So you want to be stronger? Teen Gohan – Uh... Um... Actually I want to be a great scholar! Announcer – Sc-Scholar? Well, I’ll be looking forward to seeing where you go! Announcer – So, until the next World Tournament! ====== Gohan: Vegeta – You haven’t been training much lately, have you? Time to catch up! Gohan – Okay, Vegeta! Trunks – You’re this world’s Gohan, huh...? You’re really different... Gohan – Okay, Trunks! Let’s go! Gohan – Y-You look just like my dad... Who are you? Bardock – Hm? You look familiar... Are you Turles’ son? Gohan – E-Eighteen, you really want to fight me? Android #18 – Yes. And I won’t let you hold back! Cell – You! You’re Gohan! You won’t be so lucky this time! Gohan – Cell! Don’t be so full of yourself! You don’t stand a chance against me! Gohan – Hey, it’s me when I was little! Don’t tell me I was stronger before? Teen Gohan – It’s me from the future! I wonder how strong I got? Goku – Gohan, it looks like you’ve been too busy studying to train, huh? Gohan – S-Sorry dad... But I promise that I’m not completely weak! Vegito – Gohan, it’s unusual for you to be the one asking for a match. Come on then! Gohan – R-Right! Gogeta – Gohan, if you get sloppy you’ll get hurt! Gohan – R-Right! HAAAAAAAAAAA! Gohan – You’re stronger than anyone I’ve fought so far! Think you can beat me? Kid Buu – Oogaooga! Oooogagagagaaaaa! Announcer – The winner, Gohan! Goku – You’ve really improved, Gohan! I thought you were too busy studying! Gohan – Heheheh! Don’t tell mom, but I was training with Goten! Gohan – Right Goten? Goten – Yup! But I got a lot stronger too! Goku – Is that so? Looks like I’d better train so I can keep up! Gohan – But still, with everyone here was an amazing tournament! Goku – Right! I was really looking forward to it! Gohan – But still, I can’t help but think I want to fight some more... Goku – Oh really? Then I guess its time for some more training! Gohan – Okay dad! Lets go! Goku – Alright! Give me everything you’ve got! Goten – Hey! I wanna train too! Goku – Okay then, both of you come at once! Gohan – Okay, here we come! ====== Future Gohan: Gogeta – Gohan! If you don’t go all out, you’ll be in real trouble! Future Gohan – A fusion of dad and Vegeta... Amazing... Paikuuhan – So you’re Gohan? You’re a little different. Well, why don’t we have a match? Future Gohan - ? Okay. But, I won’t hold back! Future Gohan – Wait, don’t tell me I’m going to fight myself from the past... Teen Gohan – Is this guy really me...? Majin Buu – Hm? What you want? Future Gohan – He doesn’t seem that tough... but I’d better not get sloppy! Krillin – Gohan? Wow, you’ve really grown. Future Gohan – Krillin. It’s been so long. Could we have a match? Frieza – Oh, look, yet another angry monkey has shown his ugly face... Future Gohan – Frieza... I’ll never forgive you! Janemba – Geeaaaah! Future Gohan – Wh-What is this monster...? Gotenks – Woah, you look just like my brother Gohan. Future Gohan – Trunks? Something’s different about you... what happened? Bardock – You look a lot like Kakarot. Let’s see how you fight. Future Gohan – You look just like my dad... what do you have to do with him...? Future Gohan – You! You’re that android! I’m different from before! Android #18 – I don’t know what your problem is, but it looks like you want a fight! ~~Ending~~ Announcer – And the winner, Gohan! Future Gohan – I’m still here! And I learned a lot training in otherworld! Trunks – Gohan! Congratulations! You’re amazing! Future Gohan – Thanks, Trunks! I’m so lucky I could be in a tournament with my dad! Trunks – Luck had nothing to do with it! You should believe in your strength! Future Gohan – I’m glad to hear that! You’ve really grown too, and learned a lot! Goku – Gohan, I’m really glad to see the future you has become so strong! Future Gohan – Dad... Goku – More importantly, why don’t we take the prize money and get some food? Future Gohan – Okay, dad! Let’s invite everyone and go all out! ====== Vegeta: Bardock – Well, if it isn’t the prince... Vegeta – You... I know I’ve seen you on Planet Vegeta... Vegeta – Urgh... He’s a monster!

Give me all you’ve got! Vegeta – Cell! This time you can’t kill me! Cell – Hmph! You really think so? Vegeta – You actually think you can stand up to me? Fine! Come on then! Trunks – Yes, father! Vegeta – You know, for a Namekian it takes some guts to stand up to me... Piccolo – Well, then you haven’t seen the power of the Nameks! Vegeta – I’ve been waiting a long time for this. It’s time to settle this, Kakarot! Goku – This isn’t gonna be easy to “settle,” you know. Here I come, Vegeta! ~~Ending~~ Announcer – And the winner, Vegeta! Vegeta – HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Announcer – Will do! ... Begin! Vegeta – I’m glad you’re growing up to be so strong Trunks! HAAAAAAAAA! ====== Trunks: Janemba – Gooorurururururururururu! Trunks – Wh-What a monster... There shouldn’t be someone like this in my future. Trunks – I won’t let you do as you please! Super Buu – If you interfere I’ll kill you! Teen Gohan – Trunks, thank you for the match! Trunks – You really were strong right from the start, Gohan... Trunks – Man... I’m not sure I can beat this monster. Kid Buu – HAAAAAAAAAA! Trunks – Krillin, please show me some of your amazing techniques! Krillin – Okay! But take it easy with that ridiculous power level of yours... Bardock – So you’re a Saiyan too...? Looks like Frieza failed! The Saiyans are strong! Trunks – Are you... Goku? No, you look like him, but your energy is different. Trunks – Gohan, could we have a match? Future Gohan – Trunks! Show me how much you’ve grown! Vegito – Trunks! What’ll you do? Will you fight? Trunks – His power’s incredible! Is this what happens when they fuse with the Potara? Trunks – Piccolo!

Don’t get carried away! In the end, you’re still no match for me! Goku – Trunks, it might not be my place to say this, but he’s praising you! Vegeta – What? Kakarot! Stay out of this! Trunks – Is that true, father? Vegeta – Sh-Sh-Shut up! You have a long way to go! Let’s go home and train! Goku – Hahaha! What’re you so being so shy about, Vegeta? Go on, have fun! Vegeta – Darn you! I’ll KILL YOU! Prepare yourself, Kakarot! Goku – Hahaha! Don’t get mad, Vegeta! Trunks - ...I see. So that’s how dad sees me! Trunks – Okay! I’ve got to keep training to get better! ====== Future Trunks: Future Trunks - Do you think you can fight me now? Kid Buu – Hoohooheeheeheehee! Future Trunks – It’s been a long time Gohan.

Broly – My power... is overflowing... Grrr... AAAAAAAAAGH! Future Trunks – This evil, destructive power... He’s even stronger than before! Gohan – Hey, Trunks. Long time no see! Future Trunks – This is the world where Gohan is an adult, huh? He’s not like the one I know. Paikuuhan – You seem to be quite a warrior. Would you like to have a match? Future Trunks – Alright.

Future Bulma – That’s great! And you had some tough competition! Future Trunks – Well, I think dad and Goku were going easy on me. Future Bulma – Not at all! You’re the son of a Saiyan prince, trained by Gohan! Future Trunks – Yeah... I suppose so. Fighting dad was amazing. I’m really glad I went! Future Bulma – That’s great, Trunks! You’re the best! (Thank you Goku, Vegeta...) ====== Krillin: Krillin – His power’s incredible... I don’t... think I can win... Frieza – It’s only natural. Space trash like you would have no chance against me. Gotenks – You’ve got a lot of moves, right Krillin? Well, so do I! Krillin – Man, with those little brats fused they’re a monster. Not good... Android #18 – Krillin! I think you know why I’m doing this! Krillin – C-Come on honey! Don’t make such a scary face! Vegito – Hey, Krillin. I think I’m a little too strong now. Think you can handle me? Krillin – What?

Piccolo – Fool... I’ll kill you! Piccolo – You look a lot like him, but you’re not Goku. So who are you? Tell me! Bardock – Heh. You’re pretty strong for a Namek! Goku – Hey Piccolo! It’s sure been a long time since we last fought! Piccolo – If you hold back I’ll make you regret it! Krillin – Piccolo, it’s been a long time. Could we have a match? Piccolo – Fine... But don’t you dare hold back! Piccolo – You’ve become very strong, Gohan! Show me just how strong! Gohan – Okay, Piccolo! Super Buu – Call them out! I want to fight! Piccolo – You’re fighting me! Come on, and get ready to die! Broly – So, another insect has come, eh? Piccolo – Hmph! Whatever you want, you monster! Piccolo – You know, I’m not as gentle as Krillin! Android #18 – Hmph. You really think you can defeat me? Vegeta – You know, for a Namek it takes some guts to stand up to me... Piccolo – I’ll show you a Namek’s true power! Piccolo – Gohan! You’re long overdue for some training! Come on! Teen Gohan – Right, Mister Piccolo! ~~Ending~~ Announcer – And the winner, Piccolo! Piccolo – I can’t be satisfied yet! I have to train more! Dende – Wonderful, Piccolo! I’m so moved! Gohan – Congratulations, Piccolo! You’re amazing! Piccolo – Guys... Goku – Hey, Piccolo! It’s me! You keep surprising me! What training do you do? Piccolo – I use methods I come up with by myself! I don’t do anything special! Goku – Oh come on Piccolo! Fine! But I’m coming along with you! Piccolo – You can train on your own, unless you want to fight! Goku – Alright! Then I’ll train hard so we can have a good match! Piccolo – I’ll fight you any time. But don’t think it’ll be easy for you! Announcer – Um, Piccolo? Piccolo – What? Announcer – As the champion you get a prize of a hundred million Zenie. Piccolo – I don’t need any money. Donate it to the orphans of the world. Announcer – Really? A donation? Y-You’re donating the whole 100 million Zenie? Piccolo – Whatever! Announcer – This is incredible! Piccolo really is donating all his prize money! Announcer – I’ve never seen such a splendid warrior! Let’s give Piccolo a big hand! Piccolo – Hmph! ====== Frieza: Cooler – Hello Frieza! Do you really intend to oppose your older brother? Frieza – You really have no idea how far I’ve come, brother! Frieza – Another Saiyan survivor. I won’t leave a single Saiyan monkey alive. Broly – You actually think you can kill me? Heheheh... HAAHAHAHAHA! Gotenks – Hey! Just for you I’m gonna show my special super duper all-out power! Frieza – This little brat is this powerful...? I must destroy these Saiyans! Frieza – You’ll kill me? Please, your face is enough of a joke! Super Buu – I don’t lie. If I say I’ll kill you, then I’LL KILL YOU! Frieza – Not another Saiyan. You monkeys certainly are persistent! Future Trunks – Frieza... I’ll kill you! Frieza – What’s this? You’re not a normal Earthling, are you? It won’t change your fate. Android #18 – Hmph. I’ll make you eat those words! Frieza – Putting two monkeys together still won’t be enough to defeat me! Gogeta – Give it up, Frieza. You just don’t have what it takes to beat me. Krillin – His power’s incredible... I don’t think... I can win... Frieza – It’s only natural. Space trash like you would have no chance against me. Frieza – No, I won’t let a single Saiyan live. Teen Gohan – I won’t lose to the likes of you! Goku – Frieza! You won’t get away from me! Frieza – Hmph! You Sure are cocky for a Saiyan! Come on then. ~~Ending~~ Announcer – The winner, Frieza! Frieza – Naturally. Hahahahahaha! Frieza – Now, how shall I devour this planet? It’s not worth much money! Announcer – Huh? Selling the planet? Announcer – AAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Frieza’s quite the comedian! Frieza – I’m not joking you fool! I am the ruler of the universe! Announcer – Hahaha... Sorry, Frieza, that joke went a bit over my head! Frieza – Fine. I’ll prove to you that I’m not joking! *Frieza transforms* Frieza – No regrets... Announcer – W-Well, Frieza! Calm down! Everyone, let’s give him a round of applause! *Frieza de-transforms* Frieza – R-Really? You enjoyed it that much? In that case I’ll do as you wish. Announcer – (That was surprisingly simple. Oh well. Let’s keep things moving...) Announcer – To the winner of this year’s World Tournament, thank you very much! Frieza – AHAHAHAHAHAHA! ====== Android #18: Frieza – What’s this? You’re not a normal Earthling, are you? It won’t change your fate. Android #18 – Hmph. I’ll make you eat those words! Majin Buu – Me cool? Android #18 – Shut up! You’re hideous! Piccolo – You know, I’m not as gentle as Krillin! Android #18 – Hmph. You really think you can defeat me? Goku – Oh, wow. So you’re Krillin’s wife? What should I do...? Android #18 – You’re unbelievable! Here I come! Cell – Since I’ve achieved my perfect form without you, you’re superfluous. DIE! Android #18 – I’m different from before too! You’re the one who needs to say his prayers! Android #18 – I’ll send you back to that demon world of yours! Dabura – What’s wrong? Why can’t I sense here energy? Paikuuhan – Woman! Are you alright? I can’t hold back. Android #18 – Just don’t complain to me if you want to cry! Super Buu – Now I’m hungry... What should I turn you into? Android #18 – I won’t be eaten again! This time I’ll kill you! Cooler – I won’t let you off just because you’re a woman! I’ll tear you apart! Android #18 – You’ll regret underestimating me! Android #18 – Krillin! I think you know why I’m doing this! Krillin – C-Come on honey! Don’t make such a scary face! ~~Ending~~ Announcer – The winner, 18! Android #18 – Hmph. Never mind that; just give me the prize money! Announcer – Okay! ...Wait! Please let us do a proper award ceremony! Android #18 – Fine! Let’s get this over with! Announcer – Now, 18! Here is your 100 million Zenie! Android #18 – Yes! Krillin!

You won’t be so lucky this time! Gohan – Cell! Don’t be so full of yourself! You don’t stand a chance against me! Cell – So, Frieza is still alive... However, in my perfect form I don’t need you.

Some are pathetically easy and some can be very frustrating. Your opponent for all 50 challenges will always be base form Goku. The challenges are: =================================== 1) Hit twice with Aura Burst Smash! =================================== Remember the Stun attack? Do that twice. Its R and then Triangle, your character should launch a heavy hit into the opponent’s mid section, causing them to be momentarily stunned. =========================================== 2) x5 Aura Burst Smash, and beat the enemy! =========================================== Remember the move above that you had to do twice? Now you have to do it 5 times during the match and you have to deplete all of Goku’s life bar. ================================ 3) Hit 3x with Aura Burst Blast! ================================ Okay, for this one you need to once again press the R button to go into Aura Burst mode and then press the circle button. Your chosen character will do a charged up ki blast without you needing to hold down the Circle button to charge it. Do this 3 times. ========================== 4) Hit with a Special ATK! ========================== For this challenge, simply hit the opponent with a Forward + Circle move or a Backward + Circle move. ========================================== 5) Defeat the opponent with a special ATK! ========================================== Beat your opponent to a pulp and then use one of your special attacks to finish him off. Your special attack has to be the attack that depletes the last of Goku’s life bar. ========================= 6) Use your Ultimate ATK! ========================= Power up your ki (press and hold down the L button) until you have 5 ki gauges. Now press the Up button and the Circle button at the same time to have your character launch his or her (if your using Android #18) ultimate move. ============================================ 7) Defeat the opponent with an Ultimate ATK! ============================================ This is the same as the above challenge, only you have to make sure that your ultimate move is the move that depletes the last of Goku’s health. ================================ 8) Use Aura Burst Guard 5 times! ================================ Okay for this one you need to hold down the X button and then press and hold down the R button. You need to have Goku hit you 5 times while you’re in Aura Burst Guard mode. Remember, that this guard drains your ki, so power up if you have low ki. ================================================== 9) Don’t take damage with a given time! (Beginner) ================================================== These next 4 challenges can real a real bitch and I mean that quite literally. Hope you have good evasive and blocking skills! Okay, basically what you have to do is survive for a set number of time without taking any damage at all. You will not be able to use ANY of your attacks (except the teleport hit). You can still use your Burst Charge move. There are a variety of ways that you can accomplish these next 4 tasks: - Press either the Up or Down directional buttons twice, holding it down on the second press. Your fighter will circle the opponent making it difficult for him to hit you. - If and when you have enough Ki, use the Aura Burst Guard, but watch out if Goku tries a charged attack! - Block his attacks and when he tries to do a charged attack, sidestep or back peddle (press Back twice) away from him. You need to survive for 15 seconds. If you still can’t do it then head into practice mode. Select the match option, set the difficulty to Z and remember to pick base Goku as your opponent. Now practise evading all his moves. That should help. ================================================= 10) Don’t take damage with a given time! (Middle) ================================================= Use the same strategies mentioned above. This time you have to survive for 30 seconds without taking any damage. Remember that you still can’t use any attacks. ================================================ 11) Don’t take damage with a given time! (Upper) ================================================ Use the same strategies mentioned above. This time you have to survive for 60 seconds without taking any damage. Remember that you still can’t use any attacks. ============================================ 12) Don’t take damage with a given time! (Z) ============================================ Use the same strategies mentioned above. This time you have to survive for 60 seconds again without taking any damage. Remember that you still can’t use any attacks. For this one, I was able to win with this strategy: - Back peddle as far away from Goku as you can. - Start powering up - Goku should lob a ki blast at you when you start powering up - Deflect the ki blast, or if it’s a charged up one, simply sidestep it - Rinse and repeat. I’d suggest using a character with a base line of 3 ki bars. This way you won’t fill up your ki as quickly, ruining this strategy. Keep at it ya little monkey! ====================== 13) Use a Guard Crush! ====================== This one is incredibly easy. Even a toddler could do it. Goku will be blocking, just press the Triangle button and hold it down. Your character will do a charged attack and break his guard. ============================================ 14) Defeat the opponent using only Guarding! ============================================ Okay, you have 30 seconds to defeat Goku, thing is he’s constantly guarding. Use those Guard Crashes and try some Pursuit attacks to drain loads of his health! He only has 2 health bars, so this challenge shouldn’t take you too long. ================================= 15) Use Pursuit Finish two times! ================================= Knock your opponent into the air with Up + Triangle, or do any attack that will knock him away from you (sending him into the sky) and then keep tapping the R button. Your character will do a Pursuit Finish. After it’s ended, do another one! ============================================== 16) Defeat the opponent with Pursuit Finishes! ============================================== Basically the same challenge as Number 15, only you have to defeat Goku using a Pursuit Finish. Get him down to low health and then Use a Pursuit Finish. You must make sure that the blast move of the Pursuit Finish defeats Goku. ================================ 17) Use Discernment three times! ================================ Remember the teleport counter? Wait for your opponent to attack you and then quickly press Forward + X. Your character should teleport behind Goku and kick him away. Do this 3 times. =========================================== 18) Defeat the opponent within 120 seconds! =========================================== Defeat the opponent within 120 seconds. Goku will have 2 extra health bars now. If you are having trouble defeating Goku within the allotted time (which I doubt you’ll have if you are good at the game), then equip some boosters to your chosen character. Ones like Rush attack boosters and Smash attack boosters would work well. Of course, if you are good at hitting your enemy with your chosen character’s ultimate move then equip an Ultimate Booster (if you have any) and hit him with it to take off lotsa life! ========================================== 19) Defeat the opponent within 90 seconds! ========================================== This is exactly the same as the above fight, only you have lost 30 seconds from the allotted time. Do what you did before, equip your strongest boosters and go all out! If you want to try and do this without any boosters, then by all means go ahead. Improve your skills! As Piccolo would say – “NO!! NO BOOST! NO BOOST!!” ========================================== 20) Defeat the opponent within 60 seconds! ========================================== Same story as the above fight, only now you have a minute in which to beat this Goku. He has a nasty habit of trying to block EVERYTHING you do. Try more charged attack to get past this problem, or even grabbing. ======================= 21) Win with a Perfect! ======================= Okay, you must win this battle without taking any damage. One hit that isn’t successfully blocked or dodged and that’s it, you have to start all over again. One thing to note is that Goku is back at 3 health bars again. If you are having trouble, then equip some strong boosters to help you out. Don’t worry if you have to use boosters if you’re struggling, just keep at it and then when you’re better at the game, try these challenges again. Keep at it! ================================== 22) Win with less than 50% Health! ================================== Your health will effectively be halved! Fight that much more carefully in this battle. Boosters can help to increase the amount of health you start out with. ================================== 23) Win with less than 30% health! ================================== Your health will now start at just under 1 health bar. Meaning you don’t even have a single health bar. You have to watch yourself now. Boosters still increase the amount of health you start off with. ================================== 24) Win with less than 10% health! ================================== Oh boy. Now you won’t even have half a health bar! If you are a beginner then I recommend that you wait and complete this challenge when you’re better at the game. ========================================= 25) Win without using any energy attacks! ========================================= For this battle, your ki will always be at o. You will not be able to transform, you will not be able to use any energy attacks, ki blasts, ultimate moves, teleport counters, Pursuit Finishes, Burst modes, or dodges. Get right in there and pound your opponent with physical attacks! Also, if you start off in a transformed state like Super Saiyan and you get hit without blocking, then you’ll be knocked out of your transformation and won’t be able to access it again for the rest of the fight. ====================================== 26) Win without using any Special ATK! ====================================== Okay, for this battle you need to make sure that you do NOT use ANY special moves. If you do, then you will be automatically disqualified. Normal ki blasts are okay, as are ultimate moves. Oh, and as for the Pursuit Finishers, you can use these, but do NOT let the final special part of the attack happen. That counts as a special attack. ================================= 27) Use Charge Cancel five times! ================================= This one’s easy. back peddle away from Goku and press and hold down the Triangle button. You notice that your chosen character has started to charge up his attack. Now while he’s charging it, press the X button. See that? He stopped the attack. Now do this 4 more times and you’re done with this challenge. =================================== 28) Use Charge Attacks three times! =================================== Try to hit Goku with some charged up attacks. Press and hold down the Triangle button to do a charged up attack. =================================== 29) Use Charge Attacks seven times! =================================== This is exactly the same as the above challenge, only you need to hit Goku with 7 charged up hits. ================== 30) Dodge 4 times! ================== This one can be annoying. Now, you know how you can dodge a physical attack by pressing the X button just before it hits you? Well, you need to do that here 4 times. It doesn’t have to be in a row. I said it could be annoying as Goku doesn’t seem to want to use normal physical attacks on you. Try to sidestep or block his other attacks and dodge when you can. ================== 31) Dodge 7 times! ================== Exactly the same as the above challenge, only now you need to successfully dodge 7 of Goku’s physical attacks. Do the same thing you did for challenge 30. ========================= 32) Avoid throws 3 times! ========================= You can interrupt a throw. As soon as an opponent attempts a grab on you, try a grab move yourself. You need to do that 3 times for this challenge. If you are successful then your character should, sort of, force Goku off of him, effectively interrupting the throw. ====================== 33) Breakfall 4 times! ====================== Here’s an easy one. Let Goku knock you onto the floor and then (when your character is actually ON the floor) press the Up or Down button along with the X button. Press them both at the same time and your character will do a sidestep as he or she gets up. This is a great move for hitting your opponent’s back with! ================================== 34) Deflect energy blasts 6 times! ================================== Back peddle a little and let Goku shoot ki blasts at you. As soon as a blast reaches you, tap the X button and your character will deflect it right back at Goku. Do this 6 times. ======================================= 35) Win without using the Guard Button! ======================================= You won’t be able to guard any attacks in this fight, nor will you be able to teleport, or dodge, or do any quick sidesteps. Also, you will not be able to cancel any charged up moves. ====================================== 36) Win without using the Rush Button! ====================================== You can’t use your rush combos in this fight, Smash moves are the way to go! ======================================= 37) Win without using the Smash Button! ======================================= You will not be able to utilise Smash attacks for this battle. Rely on your Rush attacks and special moves! ======================================== 38) Win without using the Energy Button! ======================================== For this battle, pressing the Circle button will do nothing, so stick to physical attacks! ============================================ 39) Win without using the Aura Burst Button! ============================================ For this battle, pressing the [R] button will do nothing. Hope you didn’t get too attached to Burst Charge and Stun moves! =========================================== 40) Win without using the Ki Charge Button! =========================================== Win the fight without the use of the [L] button. Pressing it will do nothing. Remember that physically hitting your opponent raises your ki, as does blocking his attacks. ===================== 41) Do a 5-Hit Combo! ===================== Good lord, is this one easy! Pick Goku and press the Square button 5 times. You’ll get a 6 hit combo. ====================== 42) Do a 10-Hit Combo! ====================== Power up a little bit and then lure your opponent into the air. Do the 6 hit combo like above and then keep tapping the R button whilst keeping the Up button held down. You should get a 14 hit combo. ====================== 43) Do a 15-Hit Combo! ====================== Pick Future Trunks (The one without the sword, wearing Saiyan armor) and start off in Super Saiyan mode. Now, power up and make sure you have 6 ki gauges. Use Super Saiyan Trunks’ Ultimate move and take a look at the combo number. As soon as you see the number 6, press the Circle button again and Trunks will initiate the second part of his move. This should net you 16 hits. ====================== 44) Do a 20-Hit Combo! ====================== Do the above strategy and as soon as the attack is over and you can move again, dash over to Goku and start hitting the Square button to have Trunks do his Rush hit combo. You should get 20 hits and you may even exceed 20 hits. ==================================== 45) Hit the opponent 3x from behind! ==================================== You can just do 3 Teleport Counters (Forward + X just as your opponent attacks you) for this challenge. Of course, if Goku knocks you onto the ground, get up by pressing Up or Down + X and your chosen character will circle the opponent. Then you can attack his back! ================================== 46) Do 1200 damage with one combo! ================================== Put a few Special Attack Boosters on a powerful character and then use his Forward + Circle move. Alternatively you could use a characters Ultimate. Ultimate’s can exceed 1200 damage like Goku’s Spirit Bomb. ================================== 47) Do 2000 damage with one combo! ================================== If you have Super Vegito and have enough Boosters to max out his Special Attack stat, then pick him (start out in Super Vegito form) and once you are in battle, use his Aura Burst Charge move. It raises his attack power. Now use a fully powered up Kamehameha and you will remove ALL 3 OF GOKU’S LIFE BARS! Or use his Ultimate move, the Spirit Sword to deal over 2000 damage. =============================== 48) Survive as long as you can! =============================== Okay, this is just one big survival match. You can use all your attacks, but Goku’s health will instantly recover after he has taken damage. You health will not recover though. You need to survive for 5 minutes or over. To increase your chances of lasting longer, max out your chosen characters health with Health +9 Boosters. If you pick somebody like Gogeta or Super Vegito, then you’ll have 7 baseline ki bars, which will help out with teleporting and dodging and the like. ================================ 49) Get as many hits as you can! ================================ Remember the Trunks strategy in Challenge 44? Use that here. Goku will not be attacking you, so you can fully concentrate on the combo now without worry. You have over 170 seconds to the combo as well, so you just have to mess around after you’ve done the combo. Ooooor, you could try to get a higher combo number! ========================= 50) Cause massive damage! ========================= For this final challenge, use the Super Vegito strategy in challenge 47. You don’t have to use him however, you use any character you like, but you must make sure that you have dealt AT LEAST 5000 damage. If you look just under your health bar, then you’ll see the total amount of damage you’ve done when you’re causing damage. I was able to get 16832 damage with Super Vegito. ========= Phew! And that’s all the challenges! ------------------- 4) Network Battle 5) Practice This is where you can, what else? Practice of course! Use this mode for trying out the character’s vast movesets and for testing out new combos that you’ve made yourself. You can choose your character and also your opponent, so that makes this a great mode for taking out your frustration or anger on a character you hate! After picking your characters you can now pick the stage you’re going to fight in. The stages are; - Plain - Hyperbolic Time Chamber - Snow Field - Destroyed Future City - Kai’s World - Planet Namek - HFIL - Ruins - Random Next you can set the number of rounds from 1 to 5 and the time limit. These two are for a mode that you can access during gameplay in Practice Mode. You can also set the number of health bars(maximum of 7 and minimum of 1), the starting energy (how many ki bars the you and your opponent will start off with) and the check energy (this is how many ki bars it’ll cost you to teleport counter). If you don’t care about all this stuff, then simply press and hold the down directional button to skip to that [OK] sign at the bottom of this screen and off we go! Once the training starts, you’ll notice several little details on screen. Let’s go through them shall we? - Max Hits; this is the maximum number of hits in a combo you’ve managed to perform. - Damage; this is how much damage each individual hit in the combo you’re currently performing is doing. - Total Damage; This is the above damage all added up. It’ll stay that way until you initiate a new combo or special attack. - Max Damage; this is the highest amount of damage you were able to land on your opponent. When you are able to beat this amount, this number will change to the higher amount. - Attack; This is the attack power your character currently has. When you power up your ki and it goes beyond your baseline ki bars, the percent will rise. It will go down with each smaller ki bar used up. - Guard; This is how much defense your chosen character currently has. When you go below your baseline ki (the biggest ki bars under the health bar) your defense will drop. As expected, you will take more damage from enemy attacks if you are below your baseline ki, so try to keep it as high as you can! Now we’ll look at the pause menu! Continue – Resume the current training. COM Action – You can choose to have the opponent do a different range of things. These include; * Do Nothing = The opponent will just stand there and take a beating. * Guard 1 = The opponent will guard your attacks. * Guard 2 = This seems to be exactly the same as Guard 1... * Practice = The opponent will spar with you. * Match = You can fight your opponent in a continuous series of matches. COM Level – This is where you can choose the difficulty your opponent will have when you select Practice and/or Match (explained above). You can choose from Weak, Average, Strong, Very Strong and Z. Def. Ki Blast Wv – You can choose to have your opponent deflect your ki blasts; * Do Nothing; the opponent does nothing. * Deflect; the opponent will deflect the ki blasts you throw at him/her. * Deflect-Back; the opponent will deflect the ki blasts you throw at him/her... right back at you! Counterattack – Switching this on will turn your attacks into Counterattacks. The word “Counterattack” will be displayed on screen at the start of combo’s and with every single hit you do. Break-fall – Switching this on will make the opponent instantly recover when he or she is knocked down. Just like when you’re fighting the CPU. Display – You can alter the on screen text and details. You can choose from; * Status and Command; the on screen details and your button inputs will be shown. * Status; only the on screen details will be shown. * Command; only your button inputs will be shown. * No Display; nothing will be shown on screen. Assign Buttons – Here you can switch what each button does. You can also do this from the options mode in the main menu. Camera Angle – This is a nifty little feature in which you can alter the camera angle a little bit, fifteen times. At 0, the screen will be traditional sideways viewing like all other fighting games. If you crank it all the way to 15 then the angle will be very reminiscent of the Budokai Tenkaichi series by Spike. The camera will now be almost over the shoulder of your character. Change Character – You can change your character and your opponent without backtracking to the character select screen. Also, yes, you CAN choose which transformation the character has. Remember to press and hold the R shoulder button to make the character start off in the desired form. Reset Position – You can place the characters back at their starting positions. Very handy for those players that don’t wish to knock their opponent onto the ground again. It’s much quicker than flying up to your enemy and pounding him or her to the floor! Check Command List – You can browse through your chosen character’s move list. If you highlight a certain combo or move and press X then the chosen move/combo will be displayed in the button input section of the screen! To negate this, simply return to the move list and press the O button to revert the button input part back to normal. Main Menu – Quit this mode and return to the Main Menu. And that just about covers everything there is to know about Practice Mode. Now get practicing ya little monkey, I wanna see a personalized 20 hit cancel combo by this afternoon! *Cracks whip* ------------------- 6) Profile Card Create and customise your profile card, buy stamps and view your status and friends! ==== Shop ==== This is the place, of course, where you’ll be buying your stamps and titles for your Profile Card. One of the bad things is that you have to re-buy all the stamps from the first Shin Budokai game. The prices can vary from as little as 2000 Zenie to 5000 Zenie and even 1,000,000. Only one item in the shop costs this much and quite frankly it really isn’t worth it. Buying stamps and the like will increase your %. Keep in mind that Titles do not raise your %. There are 5 sections – Small, Medium, Large, Sheet and Title: Small: These are various little things such as hearts and spirals and stuff. There are 39 in total. Medium: These are various things such as many different kanji’s, the Shin Budokai 2 logo and other things such as Scouters, a halo, Nimbus, Trunks’ sword and much, much more. There are 73 in total. Large: These are various stamps of all the characters in the game and of other characters from the Dragonball universe. Most of them are artworks from the console Budokai games. If you’ve seen an artwork in a Budokai game (Budokai 2 and 3 anyways) then there’s a 99% chance that you’ll eventually see it in the shop. I love Stamp #130! Sheet: Once you’ve bought one of these Sheets then you can set it as your background for your Profile Card. There are the various background artworks from Budokai 3, some of the Budokai 1 screens on the main menu and much more. 2 things – Sheet #34 is a rip off and Sheet #80 is the best. Title: Here you can buy various titles for your Profile Card. The title you select will appear on the back of your Card, underneath your Network battle info and above your own text, if you’ve written any. I shall now list all of the titles for you: 1) Elite Warrior 2) Low-Class Warrior 3) King of Darkness 4) Prince of Destruction 5) Prince 6) Majin 7) Demon 8) Cooler’s Armored Squad 9) Hanger-On 10) Warrior of Rage 11) Warrior Race 12) Battle Type 13) Elder 14) Great Elder 15) Guardian 16) Supreme Kai 17) King Kai 18) Great Kai 19) Ogre 20) Great King 21) Strongest on Earth 22) Android 23) Bio Warrior 24) Legendary Super Saiyan 25) Legendary Warrior 26) Perfect Form 27) Aloof Warrior 28) Warrior of Future 29) Z Fighter 30) Super-Genius 31) Messenger of HFIL 32) Champion 33) Crybaby 34) Great Ape 35) First Form 36) Second Form 37) Third Form 38) Final Form 39) Draconian 40) God of Dreams 41) Saibaman Class 42) Yamcha Class 43) Worthless Maggot 44) Tourist 45) Golden Warrior 46) Warrior of Justice 47) In Training (my current title) 48) Hooligan 49) Vulgar Army Corps 50) Great Warrior 51) Coward 52) Proud Warrior 53) Serves Frieza 54) Strongest in the Universe 55) Special Squad 56) Squad Leader 57) Earthling 58) Namek 59) Saiyan 60) Yardrat 61) Hero 62) Super Namek 63) Ultimate Weapon 64) Final Weapon 65) Full Proficiency 66) Genma 67) Saiyan King 68) Saiyan Prince 69) Galactic Warrior 70) Worldly Sage 71) Cat Hermit 72) Strongest Warrior 73) Lone Wolf 74) Hercule’s Child 75) Hercule’s Bodyguards 76) Hercule Fanclub 77) Super Warrior 78) Future Warrior 79) Child Warrior 80) Apprentice Warrior 81) Independent 82) Undefeated Warrior 83) Brutal Warrior 84) Incomplete 85) Ultimate Warrior 86) Challenger 87) Invincible and Undefeated 88) Godlike 89) Rampaging Warrior 90) Peerless 91) Kamikaze 92) Eternal Replacement 93) Minor Role 94) Easy-Going 95) Gambler 96) Thief 97) Loser 98) Turtle School 99) Young Heretic 100) Genius 101) Superstar 102) Savior 103) Dictator 104) Sage 105) Traitor 106) North Galaxy Hero 107) South Galaxy Hero 108) West Galaxy Hero 109) East Galaxy Hero 110) Future Messenger 111) Best on Earth 112) Best in the Universe 113) Best in Otherworld 114) Best in HFIL 115) Attendant 116) Hard Worker 117) Devoted Husband 118) Hen-Pecked Husband 119) Gourmet 120) Bad Luck 121) Ambitious 122) Scientist 123) Red Ribbon Army 124) Pure Evil 125) Innocent 126) My Pace 127) Selfish 128) King 129) Barbarian 130) Average Joe 131) Persistent 132) Schemer 133) Named Minor Role 134) Invader 135) Expert 136) Master 137) Instructor 138) Novice 139) Assistant Instructor 140) Half a Man 141) Man of Leisure 142) Popular 143) Evangelist 144) Lucky Adventurer 145) Problem Child 146) Carouser 147) Student 148) Little Millionaire 149) Millionaire 150) Big Millionaire 151) New Rich (this one costs 1,000,000 Zenie. Seriously) =============== Card Collection =============== This is the place where you’ll be making and editing your custom Profile Card. Pick a Sheet that will be your background and then feel free to place the Small, Medium and Large stamps that you’ve purchased onto it: Arrange Stamp – This is where you select what stamp you want to have on your Profile Card. Press Left or Right to go through the S, M and L stamps and Down or Up to cycle through the stamps themselves. Erase Stamp – Not happy with a certain stamp that you’ve placed on your Profile Card? Not to worry, you can take it off of the Card! Press the X button to select Erase Stamp and then move the cursor over the stamp you want to delete. Press the X button again to remove it. Edit Stamp – This is where you can edit each individual stamp. The options are: A) Edit Stamp Position (you can move the stamp around the Card) B) Rotate Stamp (you can turn the stamps around) C) Scale Stamp (you can make the stamp bigger or smaller) D) Edit Stamp Label Order (You can have one stamp go behind or in front of another one) E) Change Transparency (You can make a stamp fade away into nothingness) F) Invert Stamp (you can flip a stamp) Have fun with this! Change Sheet - This is where you can select the various Sheets that you’ve purchased. Background Color - You can change the color of the background using 3 color bars. Edit Comments - Here you can write a message to go on the back of your Profile Card. Select Title - Here you can select any Title that you’ve bought. This will also appear on the back of your Profile Card (just above your personal text). Delete Title - You can remove your current Title. If you don’t want a Title anymore then just select this option. Save - You can save your current Profile Card here. Load - You can load an old Profile Card here. Initialize - Select this option and all of your current Stamps and your current Sheet will be removed. And the last option returns you to the previous screen. =========== Battle Data =========== Here you can view your current progress: Game Info – - Play Time - Success Ratio - Power Level - Max Power Level - Current Title Network Battle – - # of Battles - # of Victories - Victory Ratio - Consecutive Wins - Max Consecutive Another Road – - # of Battles - # of Victories - Victory Ratio Challenge – - # Cleared (how many of the 50 Challenges you’ve completed) - Challenge 48 (How long you were able to survive in Challenge 48) - Challenge 49 (How many hits you managed in Challenge 49) - Challenge 50 (How much damage you did in Challenge 50) ========== Battle Log ========== This Log records your battle against your friends. You’ll see the date you fought them on, the number of wins you obtained, the number of losses you obtained and the last character your friend used will be visible behind your friend’s Power Level. You can also view the Profile Card they had at the time and you can save it if you want. Press the Square button to view the card and press the Triangle button to save the card. =========== Friend List =========== This will show you a list of the Profile Cards you’ve saved. Remember that you can only Save 1 and only 1 of each friend’s Card. And that about does it for the Profile Card section! ------------------- 7) Option This is where you can change various game settings and stuff: ============== Assign Buttons ============== Here, you can change what buttons do what. For example, these are the default button settings: Rush Attack----------  Smash Attack--------- /\ Energy Attack-------- () Guard---------------- X Charge Ki------------ [L] Aura Burst----------- [R] If I move the cursor over Aura Burst and press say, the X button then it’ll change and look like this: Rush Attack----------  Smash Attack--------- /\ Energy Attack-------- () Guard---------------- [R] Charge Ki------------ [L] Aura Burst----------- X Feel free to tweak the buttons to your liking. ===== Sound ===== Here, you can adjust the BGM volume and the Sound Effect and Voice volume with 1 being the quietest and 8 being the loudest. ========= Save/Load ========= Here, you can: Save – Save your game, or have a backup save. You are allowed 5 saves Load – Load a previously saved game Erase – Delete a saved game Auto-Save – Great for people who forget to save. Switching this on will make the game automatically save your progress after making some progress. Change Nickname – Not pleased with your current Nickname? Well, here you can change it! Remember that your Nickname can only be 7 characters long. ================ Connection Style ================ Here, you can switch the Accept Battle option on or off. In a normal battle, if your Ad Hoc switch is turned on and if somebody tries to battle you, then you can choose to fight them, or not fight them. There are also 4 more options to chose: Player Battle [Normal]: Have a player battle against the opponent of your choice while waiting for a battle. Player Battle [Custom]: While waiting for a battle you can have a battle with a custom character. CPU Battle: While waiting for a battle you can watch CP characters battle each other. Card Sharing: While waiting for a battle you can do card sharing. ============== Screen Display ============== This part deals with the gauges and the camera angle: Gauge Display: You can set it to ON or OFF. If you set it to OFF then it will not be seen during battles. This can make matches more exciting! Display Priority: You can set it to Front or Behind. If you set it to Front then it will always be seen clearly in a battle. If you set it to Behind then you will not be as visible when your character say, does his or her Ultimate move. Camera Angle: With this you can set the Camera Angle during gameplay. There are 15 Camera Angles in total. If you set it to 0 then it will be in the same style as all the other Budokai games. Then you can slightly move it bit by bit and when it gets to 15, you’ll notice that it is in roughly the same style as the Budokai Tenkaichi series of games. ============ Voice Select ============ You can set the voices to Japanese or English here. If you like the original voice of Goku provided by Masako Nozowa then switch the voices to Japanese. If you prefer his English voice done by Sean Schemmel then by all means switch it to English. ===== Bonus ===== Here, you can play Dragon Click, listen to various tracks from the Budokai series and view the Ending Credits: Dragon Click: It’s changed a little bit from the first Shin Budokai game. Now you press the X button instead of the [R] button. Try to press it as many times as you can within 10 seconds. My score is a measly 210. Dragon Music: This is exactly the same as the one from the first Shin Budokai game, except that they’ve placed new songs from this game into it. You can listen to 61 songs from the Budokai series. Track 16 (Wild Soul) is my favorite. View Credits: What do you think this does? It lets you view the ending credits for the game of course! You can also use the analogue stick/slider/whatever it is to move Master Roshi around if you want. ------------------- VII) Characters and their move sets Alrighty then!

Boosters New to the Shin Budokai series is the option to equip Boosters to your characters. Equip a certain Booster to a character and a certain stat will increase. Equip more and more Boosters to further increase a stat. To equip Boosters onto a character, highlight that particular fighter on the Character Select screen and press the Triangle button. You will then be taken to the Booster screen where you can place 9 Booster cards down. Press the Triangle button to open a little menu with the current number each stat has. On your first time here, you’ll notice that the character has a few locked spaces. You cannot set a Booster in that locked space until you have purchased an Unlock Slot item. Okay, to select or buy a Booster, press the X button on an already unlocked slot: Normal Booster – These are the stat Boosters. They raise different stats such as Health, Ki, Strength or other things. You can only max out 1 of your stats, a maxed out stat will be at level 99: Health: These ones determine how much health your character has. Max out your health and you will have 7 health bars. 1) Health +1 2) Health +2 3) Health +3 4) Health +4 5) Health +5 6) Health +6 7) Health +7 8) Health +8 9) Health +9 Ki: These ones determine how many baseline ki bars your character will have. Bardock has 3 baseline ki bars: max out his ki and he will have 7 baseline ki bars. 10) Ki +1 11) Ki +2 12) Ki +3 13) Ki +4 14) Ki +5 15) Ki +6 16) Ki +7 17) Ki +8 18) Ki +9 Defense: These ones make you more resistant towards your opponent’s attacks. 19) Defense +1 20) Defense +2 21) Defense +3 22) Defense +4 23) Defense +5 24) Defense +6 25) Defense +7 26) Defense +8 27) Defense +9 Rush: These ones increase the damage caused by your character’s Rush hits (the Square button attacks). Max out this stat for say Gogeta and he will be inflicting over a bar of health of damage to your opponent. 28) Rush +1 29) Rush +2 30) Rush +3 31) Rush +4 32) Rush +5 33) Rush +6 34) Rush +7 35) Rush +8 36) Rush +9 Smash: These ones will increase the damage done by your character’s Smash attacks (the Triangle button attacks). With this stat maxed out, your character will be doing some very hefty physical damage! 37) Smash +1 38) Smash +2 39) Smash +3 40) Smash +4 41) Smash +5 42) Smash +6 43) Smash +7 44) Smash +8 45) Smash +9 Energy Blast: These ones make your character’s ki blasts more powerful. Max out this stat and your ki blasts will do damage that is sort of equivalent to a Smash combo. 46) Energy Blast +1 47) Energy Blast +2 48) Energy Blast +3 49) Energy Blast +4 50) Energy Blast +5 51) Energy Blast +6 52) Energy Blast +7 53) Energy Blast +8 54) Energy Blast +9 Chasing ATK: These ones make the damage you cause during a Pursuit Finish do much more damage. It’s only for the physical hits in the Pursuit Finish though, not the blast at the end. 55) Chasing ATK +1 56) Chasing ATK +2 57) Chasing ATK +3 58) Chasing ATK +4 59) Chasing ATK +5 60) Chasing ATK +6 61) Chasing ATK +7 62) Chasing ATK +8 63) Chasing ATK +9 Special ATK: These ones make your special moves like, the Kamehameha do more damage. Max out this stat for say Gogeta and his Soul Strike (<O move) will deal over a bar of health uncharged and over a bar and a half of damage fully charged. If you max out Vegetto’s Special ATK stat, use his Burst Charge move and successfully utilize his Savage Counter (<O move) then he can end up dealing WAY over 2 bars of damage! 64) Special ATK +1 65) Special ATK +2 66) Special ATK +3 67) Special ATK +4 68) Special ATK +5 69) Special ATK +6 70) Special ATK +7 71) Special ATK +8 72) Special ATK +9 Power Up Boosters - The next Boosters are quite different. They have numbers on them and arrows pointing either up, down, left, or right. None of these Boosters have 1 arrow, they will have either 2, 3, or 4. Here’s an example on how they work (Please excuse the s***y diagram...) – 1) I put two [Health +1] Boosters on the Booster Sheet: ___________ | | | | | | |H+1| | | | | |___|___|___| | | | | | | | | | | | | |___|___|___| | | | | | | |H+1| | | | | |___|___|___| 2) Now I take a Power Up Booster. Let’s say +2, pointing up and down and place it in between the two [Health +1] Boosters: ___________ | | | | | | |H+3| | | | | |___|___|___| | | | | | | |P+2| | | | | |___|___|___| | | | | | | |H+3| | | | | |___|___|___| 3) Now, the two [Health +1] Boosters will be [Health +3] ones. I Hope that helped you out. Anyway, the Power Up Boosters are – 73) +2, Left - Right 74) +2, Up - Down 75) +2, Up – Left - Right 76) +2, Up – Down - Right 77) +2, Up – Down – Left - Right 78) +3, Left - Right 79) +3, Up - Down 80) +3, Down – Left - Right 81) +3, Up – Down - Left 82) +3, Up – Down – Left - Right 83) +4, Up - Right 84) +4, Down - Left 85) +4, Up – Left - Right 86) +4, Up – Down - Right 87) +4, Up – Down – Left – Right 88) +5, Up - Left 89) +5, Down - Right 90) +5, Left – Right - Down 91) +5, Up – Down - Left 92) +5, Up – Down – Right - Left Ultimate Boosters: Last but not least we have the rare Ultimate Boosters. You can only set one of these at a time. The reason for this is because if you have like 9 Ultimate Booster +9’s on the Booster Sheet then your character’s Ultimate move could end up dealing like 10,000 hit points of damage. You can however raise its increase by a few points by having some Power Up Boosters pointing to it. The max you can get an Ultimate Stat to is 29, if you know how to raise it even further then do please tell me and I’ll include it along with your name to this guide! The Ultimate Boosters are – 93) +4, Upper Right – Lower Right 94) +4, Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 95) +4, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 96) +5, Upper Left – Lower Left 97) +5, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Right 98) +5, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 99) +6, Upper Left – Lower Left 100) +6, Upper Left – Lower Left – Lower Right 101) +6, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 102) +7, Upper Right – Lower Right 103) +7, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left 104) +7, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 105) +8, Upper Left – lower Right 106) +8, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Right 107) +8, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right 108) +9, Upper Right – Lower Left 109) +9, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left 110) +9, Upper Left – Upper Right – Lower Left – Lower Right That about covers the Boosters! ------------------- IX) Unlockables Find out how to unlock new characters and stuff! Bardock – To unlock the father of Goku, complete the 6th fight of Chapter 5. Cooler – To unlock Frieza’s older brother, complete the second mission in Chapter 4. Dabura – To unlock the King of Demons, simply beat him in the second level of Chapter 2. Future Gohan – To unlock Gohan’s future self, you need to complete chapter 5. Not really that hard as almost all of the parts are normal battles with no world map stuff to do. Piccolo (Fused with Kami) – To unlock Kamicollo or the Namek who has long since forgotten his name, you must defeat him in the alternate path of Chapter 3. “What? Piccolo fused with Kami?” Super Buu with Gotenks Absorbed – To unlock the second Mightiest Majin, you need to velar the second level of Chapter 7. Super Buu with Gohan Absorbed – To unlock the Mightiest Majin, you must clear the third level of Chapter 7. Super Saiyan 4 Goku – Now, I got both SSJ4 Goku and Majin Vegeta, despite getting the second ending (Ending B) in chapter 7. I got a B ranking and they were both unlocked afterwards. I have since got the other ending (Ending A). Majin Vegeta – Now, I got both Majin Vegeta and SSJ4 Goku, despite getting the second ending (Ending B) in chapter 7. I got a B ranking and they were both unlocked afterwards. I have since got the other ending (Ending A). Other Boosters – Everytime you defeat an opponent on the over world map during the story mode, you will be able to choose 1 Booster from a select few. They will all be turned face down so you cannot see which Booster you are getting. If you have 30 of a Booster and happen to end up with that one after a fight then it will say that you already have 30 of that particular Booster and you’ll unfortunately end up with nothing... which sucks. Stamps and Titles – You can get stamps by beating various modes, but the fastest way is to go to Arcade mode, set the rounds to 1, the difficulty to Z and then beat that mode if you can. You’ll get 14 stamps afterwards. You’ll also be getting this message frequently after completing something such as a Time Attack course: “Something new is available in the shop!” This “Something New” will always be a new Title to purchase. It will take you a good long while before you stop getting this message so keep at it! A good way to stop getting this message is to do the Time Attack 1 course. Do the first course which is against 3 opponents (Piccolo, Krillin and Vegeta) to unlock more “new things” in the shop quicker. Bonus section on the Options menu – Simply beat the Arcade mode to get this. You will be able to play Dragon Click, listen to the game’s soundtrack and view the ending credits. To get the Bonus section quickly, set the difficulty to Very Easy and the number of rounds to 1. ------------------- X) Tips and Hints - At any time of your choosing, practice with every single character in the game. Don’t just go after the Saiyans. You may find for example that you’re really good with Cell or Pikkon! - Try not to rely too much on boosters after fully getting to grips with the game; if you use them all the time then you’ll start getting used to the amount of damage your character does or the health they start out with and this will probably surprise you when you enter a battle against your friends... if you play this game with friends that is! - When you are confident enough in your own skills, try ramping up that old difficulty level for modes such as Arcade. Playing the game on higher difficulties and having no boosters equipped will only make you get better at the game! - This is a button preference thing, but you could try swapping the functions of the X button and the R shoulder button like I did. This makes performing cancel combos much more easy. It may take you a while to adjust to the changed buttons, but keep at it and you’ll be playing the game as you normally would again in no time! - When doing a pursuit combo on your opponent, stop if the next hit will give them 3 or over ki bars; there is a high chance that they will teleport behind you and give you an arse kicking. Only try the full pursuit combo if you have at least 3 ki bars remaining; that way, you’ll be able to teleport behind your opponent if they teleport behind you! - Whilst teleporting, hold down the Guard button (X by default) and not only will your character not hit their opponent, but they’ll be guarding so you can combo them from behind. Remember that hitting your opponent from behind will cause more damage! MORE WILL COME AS I THINK OF OR DISCOVER THEM!! ------------------- XI) Trivia Little facts and stuff about the game! 1) Future Gohan’s Super Saiyan 2 artwork on the character select screen is just his Super Saiyan 1 artwork, but with electricity added. 2) If Goku does his Kaioken Kamehameha (>O, O) and someone teleports behind him while he’s doing it (when the camera angle changes) then you’ll see the other character behind him, trying to do the Teleport hit. Goku will be immune to the hit however. 3) Like Budokai 2 and 3 with Trunks’ Super Saiyan 2 transformation, this game also introduces what if transformations in the form of Super Saiyan 2 and Elder Kai Unlock Ability (or Mystic) for Future Gohan. 4) This marks the first time Future Gohan has been playable in a Dragonball Z game. Well, in the UK anyway because Dragonball Z Sagas never made it anywhere outside of America due to its extremely bad reception. 5) If you press the Square, Triangle, Circle or X button on the loading screen, then you’ll “hit” the Turtle kanji. This also applies for the directional buttons. If you press say, the Down button and the X button at the same time, then a different sound effect will be heard. 6) Wanna start a fight in your transformed state? You got it! Highlight your character’s form and hold down the R button. While still holding the R button press X and voila! Be warned though, your opponent will also be in his transformed state as well. 7) As with Shin Budokai, Pikkon’s name is spelt as Paikuuhan, which is his Japanese name. 8) You can move Master Roshi around during the ending credits! To move him around, use the analogue stick. ------------------- XII) Special Thanks - Akira Toriyama for creating DBZ obviously. - Toei for animating DBZ and adding all the wonderful filler. - DIMPS for developing this little gem. - You for reading this guide. Unless of course you’re someone I hate. - Me for writing this guide. Looks like you’re done now. Go outside and play.
