Copyright: 2007 Nick Kazama. ------------------ II) Introduction Hai, HAI! So, as I stated in my Future Trunks (Fighting) FAQ, writing up character guides for Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 has become somewhat of a hobby of mine. Okay, here’s the low down – I love Son Goku. I’m the world’s biggest Goku fan boy (only I don’t fall into the “ZOMG!!1 Hee cud tottali beet mistac gowhan!!1111shift+1” section of Goku fan boys). When I first started watching DBZ (in late 1999) I noticed that Goku was one of those guys that just didn’t give up, he always strived to become better and it clearly showed. It was this, plus his personality and that fantastic hairstyle that made me like him so much. In short, he became my hero. He became my hero in 1999 and he still is to this day. It was only a (slightly long) matter of time before I wrote up an FAQ for him! Yes, this FAQ will focus on his transformations as well. So we’ll be looking at Base form, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3. ------------------- III) Contact details If you have any questions about this FAQ, or Son Goku then e-mail moi! My e-mail address is - firstname.lastname@example.org Please remember to read the guide thoroughly before asking me anything though. Chances are you'll find your answer! -------------------- IV) Goku’s profile Goku is the main character of Dragonball, Dragonball Z and especially Dragonball GT (Dragonball Goku Time). He was originally sent to Earth to destroy its inhabitants by the Saiyans. When he landed on Earth he was found by a kindly old man named Gohan who took the child (at the moment named Kakarot) in as his own. Sadly, Kakarot’s violent nature made it difficult for Gohan to take care of him. During a hike across the mountains, Kakarot fell several feet and landed on his head, badly injuring it. It was this fall that made him forget about his “programming” to destroy the inhabitants of the planet Earth and from that day forward, he became a peaceful good natured boy. Throughout his life, he went on many adventures; he took part in Tenkaichi Budokai’s, he searched for the Dragonballs and came across many enemies, some of which eventually became his friends. During Dragonball, Goku meets up with Bulma, Yamcha, Krillin, Tien, Chaozu, the Demon King Piccolo and more. All those listed above became his friend in Dragonball, except for Piccolo, who’s offspring Piccolo Jr would go on to fight alongside Goku in DBZ. During Dragonball Z, Goku found out about his Saiyan heritage from his big brother Raditz. During the following battle with Raditz, Goku was killed while sacrificing himself. While in the afterlife, he trained with the renowned King Kai and learned some new techniques, eventually leaving to do battle with Nappa and Vegeta. After this battle, Vegeta would dub Kakarot his rival and from this point onwards, trained to be better than his rival. Once Goku arrived on the Planet Namek to aid his friends, who had gone off to search for the Dragonballs, he did battle with 4 out of 5 Ginyu Force members. He beat Recoome with a single blow to the stomach and it was at this point that Vegeta began to suspect that his rival had become a Super Saiyan. Goku sustained heavy injuries during his battle with Captain Ginyu, so he was placed into a rejuvenation tank to recover his wounds. After fully healing up, he immediately made it to the battle with Frieza. The tyrant had just murdered Dende and had beaten Vegeta severely. Before dying from a Death Beam through his chest, Vegeta, through tears, admitted to Goku why he acted the way he did. Goku buried the Saiyan Prince soon after. Announcing that he was going to finish Frieza off, Goku and the intergalactic tyrant engaged in a massive battle. After being hit by a Spirit Bomb, Frieza was thought to have been destroyed, but it only injured him. Frieza showed his frustration by gravely injuring Piccolo and blowing up Goku’s best friend Krillin. Enraged at this, Goku transformed into a Super Saiyan right then and there. This boost in power won Goku the fight and he was thought to have been killed when Namek blew up. He survived though, using one of the Ginyu Forces space pods to crash land on the planet known as Yardrat. It was on this planet that he learned the Instant Transmission technique. After returning to Earth, he was told by Future Trunks about the upcoming Android invasion. Goku and his friends trained for 3 years straight. On the fateful day, the Z fighters confronted the androids 19 and 20. During his battle with Android 19, Goku’s heart virus (which Future Trunks had warned him about) started up, weakening the Saiyan. He was saved by Vegeta and spent the rest of the Android saga, bedridden. After recovering from that, he went to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber to ascend past the level of an ordinary Super Saiyan, along with Gohan, Vegeta and Trunks. During their time inside the chamber, Goku managed to get Gohan up to Super Saiyan status. He also discovered the weakness of the USSJ2 form and so he devised a way to get used to the Super Saiyan form. He and Gohan were now able to remain as SSJ’s, even when relaxing and sleeping. This has been called the Full Power Super Saiyan form or FPSSJ for short. During the Cell games, Goku gave up during his fight with Cell and instead had Gohan fight the monster. It was only after Android 16’s head was destroyed, did the boy achieve Super Saiyan 2 status. Sadly however, cell showed how much of a sore loosing prick he was, by threatening to blow up the Earth with a Kamikaze attack. Goku bid farewell to his friends and his son and used his Instant Transmission to teleport Cell to the planet of King Kai. The ensuing explosion killed Goku, King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory. Goku chose to remain in the afterlife after his destruction by the hands of Cell and would not meet up with his friends until 7 years later. It was during his time in otherworld that Goku learned Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3 and the Fusion Dance. After returning to Earth for a day to participate in a tournament, he ditched it to try and thwart the threat of Majin Buu. Around this time, Vegeta let himself be taken over by the wizard Babidi and became Majin Vegeta. He and SSJ2 Goku battled each other until the Prince of Saiyans knocked his rival unconscious. Vegeta then died trying to eliminate Buu. Once Goku awakened, he taught Goten and Trunks the Fusion Dance and showed the group Super Saiyan 3 whilst attempting to hold Babidi and Buu off, whilst Trunks searched the Capsule Corp for the Dragon Radar. In other world, Goku met up with Gohan, who had been brought there for training and later gained the life of the Elder Kai. Equipped with the Potara earrings, Goku initially planned to fuse with Gohan to end Buu’s reign of terror, however his son was absorbed by the monster instead leaving Goku to fuse with his rival, Vegeta. The warrior known as Vegetto was born and dominated his fight with Buu. He let himself be absorbed to rescue his sons and Piccolo from inside Buu. Once inside the monster, Vegetto separated back into Goku and Vegeta again and the two located and rescued their allies. Due to Vegeta’s meddling, Kid Buu was born and blew up the Earth with a single attack. It was on the Planet of the Kai’s that Goku and Vegeta finished off Buu. Goku’s gigantic Spirit Bomb obliterated the evil being. The damage that Majin Buu caused was fixed with the Dragonballs and Goku once again lived in peace with his family. 10 years later, he and a few other Z fighters participated in yet another World Martial Arts Tournament, but Goku left to train Uub – the reincarnated Buu. A few more years later, In Dragonball Goku Time, Goku was turned into a kid due to a wish from emperor Pilaf (who shouldn’t have been alive anyway) and travelled the galaxy with his granddaughter Pan and Trunks. In GT, Toei showed how much they loved Goku by making him a god – Godku if you will. Base Kid Goku was an unstoppable force, even Super Saiyan 4 was rendered obsolete in terms of power. >_> This is his profile from the Budokai Tenkaichi 2 encyclopedia. Base Goku – This is the strong young man named Goku. As a Saiyan baby, he was sent from Planet Vegeta to destroy planet Earth, however, an unexpected head injury caused his Saiyan characteristics to disappear. Instead of an evil beast, he grew up as a kind-hearted Earthling under the loving care of his foster father, Grandpa Gohan. When his older brother Raditz arrives on Earth and reminds Goku of his original mission, Goku refuses to carry out the task, instead choosing to fight for the good of Earth. From then on, Goku’s job as the world’s greatest defender becomes increasingly difficult as he is faced with many dark and formidable enemies, one after another. No matter how large the crisis, he never gives up, and his loyalty to the good of all people and to his friends makes him the ultimate hero. Especially to Nick Kazama. However, since Goku spends his days fighting evil, this makes life tricky for his wife, Chi-Chi, forcing her to be the family breadwinner in an effort to make ends meat. In Dragonball GT, Goku once again travels deep into space with Trunks and Pan to defend the world on an adventure that puts the entire universe in his hands. Super Saiyan Goku – The first time dad ever became a Super Saiyan, it was when Frieza killed Krillin. As a super Saiyan, he looked different and his power level raised to almost 50 times normal. That first time was scary, since no one knew what was happening to him. It was like he had some sort of strange sickness that came from his Saiyan blood. The more emotional Dad got, the more his odd Saiyan powers would take over his body. Oh, and Mom doesn’t seem to like super Saiyans very much. - From Gohan’s Super Saiyan Observation Journal. Super Saiyan 2 Goku – Goku transforms from Super Saiyan into this form. After training in Other World, he achieved the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan 2. A Super Saiyan’s distinctive change is more pronounced, and his power rises further. In the duel with Majin Vegeta, who had powered up thanks to Babidi’s magic, Goku changed into this form and showed an extraordinary power. Super Saiyan 3 Goku – This is the form that surpasses Super Saiyan 2. In this form, the hidden power in a Saiyan’s blood is taken to its limits. At first glance, this is an extreme change when compared to a regular Super Saiyan. The eyebrows disappear and the hair grows even longer. The power of a Super Saiyan 3 is far greater than any Saiyan level before. However, the transformation requires a lot of energy. Only in Other World can a Saiyan keep this power for a long period of time. Anywhere else, the time a Saiyan can stay at the super Saiyan 3 level is very short. ------------------- V) Some of Goku’s combos Okay, lets do this! Firstly, press the Square button 5 times and Goku will perform a 5 hit combo that should come to 1610 damage. After the 5th punch, press the X button and Goku will get right in his opponents face. Immediately after pressing the X button, press the Square button another 5 times and Goku will perform another combo, this one totalling 6 hits. On the third press of the Square button on the second 5 button presses, Goku does 6 hits instead of 5. This combo will come to 11 hits. This 11 hit combo should deal 3650 damage. Try this; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x5 Done that? Good. Alrighty then, onto the different combos! ----- Heavy Finish – Square, Triangle Kiai Cannon – Square, Square, Triangle Flying Kick – Square, Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle Lift Strike – Up + Triangle Ground Slash – Down + Triangle ----- Heavy Finish 1 Goku punches his opponent once and then launches his left fist straight into the opponent’s gut; this hit stuns them for a short amount of time. When you press the Triangle button, hold it down and Goku will charge the gut punch. If you do choose to charge the gut blow then (after it connects) the Heavy Finish hit will stun the opponent for a longer amount of time, giving you just that extra bit longer to make a more effective move. The charged Heavy Finish will also do a bit more damage than usual. You can also add more hits to the Heavy Finish combo you know! There are several possible outcomes of how you could end this combo, try these; 1 hit finish – Square, Triangle As mentioned above, Goku punches once and then delivers a hard punch to his enemies gut. 2 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut and then kicks them. 3 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut, kicks them and then kicks them again. 4 hit finish – Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Goku punches his opponent, punches their gut, kicks them once, then twice and then a third time! If you do decide to go along with the 4 hit finish, then Goku will end up sending his opponent halfway across the screen with that final kick he does. You should use this time to gather some ki, use his “Give Me Energy!” Blast 1 move, or try to go into Kaio-ken or something. ----- Kiai Cannon Goku punches his opponent twice and then moves both of his hands to his sides, stunning the enemy. Like the Heavy Finish attack, Goku can charge his Kiai Cannon move. Uncharged, the actual hit will do 780 damage. If you charge it, then it will cause 1340 points of damage as well as knocking the opponent away. Of course you could just read the little bit of text below this writing; Kiai Cannon uncharged – Opponent is stunned slightly and receives 780 points of damage Kiai Cannon charged – Opponent is sent flying and receives 1340 points of damage If you decided to use the fully charged Kiai Cannon attack, then you’ll probably (depends on the difficulty setting you’re using) get a chance to charge some ki, use the “Give Me Energy!” Blast 1 move, or use the Kaio-ken power up. You can even do an extra teleport attack if you sent the opponent flying with this move. After they’ve been knocked away, press the Triangle button again to have Goku teleport near them and knock them into the ground! ----- Flying Kick Goku punches his opponent 3 times and ends the combo by planting his feet into the enemies face 3 times. The resulting kicks to the face will stun the opponent, so you could try to do another Flying Kick move. Try this; Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Triangle Simplified version = Square x3, Triangle, Square x3, Triangle Keep in mind that you cannot do 3 or more Flying Kicks in a row, as the opponent is knocked onto the floor after the second one. If you went through with the full 2 Flying Kick attacks, then Goku should perform a 12 hit combo, causing 2400 points of damage. ----- Heavy Finish 2 Yup, Goku has another Heavy Finish attack to round of his 4 hit (Square x4) combo! This Heavy Finish is exactly the same as the first one, only Goku causes more damage with his starting punches. Try this next combo twice, only charge the Heavy Finish attack on the second version; Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle (not held down) This should come to a total of 1540 damage. Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle (held down) This one should come to a total of 2450 damage, almost double the damage of the above combo. Now, we’ll try adding some more hits to the combo! Try this; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x5, Triangle This should net you a 11 hit combo. ----- Lift Strike Ah, the Lift Strike! Here's a good move. It enables you to hit your opponent up into the sky, leading for a very damaging combo. Remember that you have to Goku perform AT LEAST 1 punch before you can perform a Lift Strike attack. Try a Lift Strike without punching first and Goku will instead do a ki blast. Let's break down the Lift Strike; Firstly, punch your opponent and then immediately after that hit, press Up + Triangle, like this; Square, Up + Triangle Notice how your opponent is sent up into the sky? The actual Lift Strike move itself (like many melee moves in Budokai Tenkaichi 2) is chargeable. Try the above Lift Strike again, but this time hold the Triangle button down. Done that? Great, see how your opponent is sent even higher into the air? Okay, stage 2! After the opponent is sent hurtling into the air, press the X button and Goku will fly after them, like this; Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X Okay, onto Stage 3. As soon as Goku reaches them, press the Square button repeatedly to do a 7 hit combo to them whilst in the air. The combo will end with the opponent being sent down to the ground again. Try this; Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, Opponent is sent onto the ground You can make that combo in the air a little more damaging by pressing the Triangle button, instead of the Square button, as soon as Goku reaches them in the air. Like this; Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent up into the air, X, Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square simplified version = Square, LS, X, Triangle, Square x5 This will do some more damage to the opponent. You can do even more damage than that as well! Press the Triangle button after the 4th Square button press to make Goku knock his opponent onto the ground hard. Like this; Square, Up + Triangle, Opponent is sent into the air, X, Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle Here's a simplified version just for you = Square, LS, X, Triangle, Square x4, Triangle Hope that's not too hard for ya! If it is, then practise it! ------------------- Ground Slash Finally, we come to the Ground Slash attack. This attack, like the Lift Strike move, requires you to punch the opponent AT LEAST once before you are able to perform it. Like this; Square, Down + Triangle Notice how your opponent is knocked onto his arse? The Ground Slash is also chargeable, try it again, but this time, hold the Triangle button down. See that? The opponent is now falling down in slow motion! Square, Down + Triangle (non charged), Opponent falls onto the floor. Square, Down + Triangle (charged), Opponent falls onto the floor in slow motion. Do the charged one again and then try a combo on him, like this; Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Square After this small combo, your opponent is knocked backward. Here's another combo, that enables you to link in a Heavy Finish; Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Triangle For even more damage, try this one; Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Triangle And to add even more damage to the last 2 combos, have Goku perform a 4 hit Heavy Finish, like this; Square, Down + Triangle, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Simplified = Square, GS, Square x3, Triangle x3, Square For the last part in the Ground Slash section, I'm going to tell you how to perform a teleport hit combo. It's really simple to pull off too! Try this; Square, Down + Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Remember to watch your timing when performing the teleport hits. ------------------- Think we’re done for melee moves? Think again! Press the (R3) button down! For you of those that don’t know what the (R3) button is, it’s the Right Analogue stick press down. Tada! It’s SSJ Goku time! Alrighty then, firstly press the Square button 5 times, the X button as the opponent falls backwards and then hit that Square button another 5 times to have Goku perform an 11 hit combo. ----- SSJ Goku’s changed combo list Flying Kick – Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle Kiai Cannon – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle ----- Flying Kick Goku’s Flying Kick has replaced the Heavy Finish 1 as his starting combo finisher. Not only that, but the Flying Kick of SSJ Goku has changed in looks too. Press the Square button and then the Triangle button and Goku will do a 5 hit combo. No, that’s not a typo, he’ll do a 5 hit combo! If you want to do an even longer combo, then press Square, Triangle, Square, Triangle. Goku will now do a 10 hit combo. Hehe, a 10 hit combo for pressing 4 buttons! Please note that if you pressed the Square button a second time too quickly, then you’ll only get a 9 hit combo. You have to wait for about half a second after pressing the Triangle button the first time to have him do the full 10 hit combo. ----- Heavy Finish 1 That’s right, the second combo finisher has been changed from a Kiai Cannon into a Heavy Finish – the first of 2 Heavy Finishers. Remember that SSJ Goku punches twice when you hit the punch button once. So this will end up being a 3 hit combo; Square (Goku punches twice), Square (Goku punches once), Triangle (Goku does his Heavy Finish attack) Remember to chain it with the other hits in the Heavy Finish combo; Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square That first Triangle button press is still chargeable, so charge it if you want to do a tad more damage! ----- Heavy Finish 2 What, another Heavy Finish already? Yes another Heavy Finish already! This is EXACTLY the same as the last Heavy Finish attack you just performed, except that Goku will punch his opponent an extra time before using the combo finishing move. It should come up to a 5 hit combo. But let’s make it longer shall we? Try this; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Triangle Simplified version = Square x5, X, Square x2, Triangle Think you’re up for a longer one? Okay, then try this one; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Triangle Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x3, Triangle Even longer? You got it! Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square That should net you a nice little 13 hit combo! ----- Kiai Cannon The Kiai Cannon attack is now Goku’s last move in the combo list. Hit that Square button 4 times and then press the Triangle button to make Goku stun his opponent slightly. Press the Triangle button down and Goku will charge the attack. The Kiai Cannon will now send the opponent far away from you. Use a B1 move, or gather some ki in the meantime! If you want to do a little more damage then after you’ve charged that Triangle button and the opponent has gone flying, press it again and Goku will perform a teleport hit, knocking them onto the ground! ----- Woah, where do you think you’re going fella (or girl)? It’s not time for the blast moves yet! We’ve still got 2 more transformations worth of combos to get through. Press (R3) again and its SSJ2 time. Oooh, electricity! Okay then, firstly press the Square button 5 times and then when the opponent is knocked backwards slightly, press the X button to have SSJ2 Goku dash right up to them again. After he’s done this, press the Square button again another 5 times. This should net you a 12 hit combo. ----- SSJ2 Goku’s changed combo list Kiai Cannon – Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle ----- Kiai Cannon Press the Square button and then hit the Triangle button to make Goku do his Kiai Cannon attack. Other than the reduced number of Square button presses required to do it, the Kiai Cannon is exactly the same as before. ----- Heavy Finish 1 Heavy Finish is still Square, Square, Triangle, only now it does slightly more damage than it did before. ----- Heavy Finish 2 Heavy Finish number 2 is still in the same place it was the last time with SSJ Goku. The only differences here are an extra hit and slightly more damage. ----- Heavy Finish 3 Yes, SSJ2 Goku ditches the Flying Kick in favour of ANOTHER Heavy Finish! For this final Heavy Finish you need to press the Square button 4 times and THEN hit the Triangle button. Let’s make this combo longer shall we? We’ll skip straight to the longest combo. I think you’re ready for it; it’s not exactly a hard one; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x4, Triangle x3, Square ----- There’s just one more form to go! Super Saiyan 3! Press that (R3) button. Voila! Super Saiyan 3 Goku has entered the building! This of course is Goku’s most powerful form... Random guy – But wait Nick, what about SSJ4?? Shut up. As I was saying, this is Goku’s most powerful form, so let’s take him for a spin shall we! Firstly Press that Square button 5 times, as the opponent is slightly knocked backwards, press the X button to have Goku dash right up to them again and then hit the Square button again another 5 times. This should give you a 13 hit combo. Notice how his basic combo number rises by 1 hit each with transformation? Anyhoo, his changed combo list awaits... ----- Super Saiyan 3 Goku’s changed combo list Kiai Cannon – Square, Triangle Flying Kick – Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Triangle Heavy Finish – Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle ----- Kiai Cannon As with SSJ2 Goku, the Kiai Cannon once again appears at the top of the combo list. It will do 3 hits instead of 2, because SSJ3 Goku will punch twice when you press the Square button once. Remember that if you charge the Kiai cannon hit by holding down the Triangle button then it will do slightly more damage and will send the opponent flying away from you. Oh yeah, SSJ3 Goku can still perform his teleport hit if you charge the Triangle button the first time. Like this; Square, Triangle (held down, opponent is sent flying), triangle *Goku teleports over to the opponent and knocks them straight into the ground. ----- Flying Kick Wehey! Goku gets his flying kick back! Remember? SSJ2 Goku sacrificed this move for a third Heavy Finish attack. Well, if you missed this attack whilst using the last form, relax, its back now. The Flying Kick of Super Saiyan 3 Goku is the same as the Flying Kick that Super Saiyan Goku used. He still does that little forward flip and it (the actual Flying Kick move itself) still does 3 hits. Wanna get a neat little 12 hit combo while using the Flying Kick move twice? Okay then, try this out; Square, Square, Triangle, Square, Square, Triangle Simplified Version = Square x2, Triangle, Square x2, Triangle This will give you that 12 hit combo. Remember to watch your timing with this as Goku’s extra punch will probably put you off. ----- Heavy Finish 1 Oh yes, it’s back again! Goku will now produce a 6 hit combo if you use this first Heavy Finish attack, like so; Square, Square, Square (Goku attacks 5 times), Triangle (Goku does the Heavy Finish – A.K.A. the 6th hit of the combo) Remember to try and chain it with the other 3 hits to do some more damage to your opponent; Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Simplified Version = Square x3, Triangle x3, Square Also remember that that first Triangle button press is chargeable. The longer you keep it held down, then the more damage Goku will do when his fist connects to the opponent! ----- Heavy Finish 2 And to end SSJ3 Goku’s combo list, we have yet another Heavy Finish move! Try this; Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle And a 7 hit combo is produced. Now do this; Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square And a 10 hit combo at 4440 damage is produced. Lets make this combo even longer, like so; Square, Square, Square, Square, Square, X, Square, Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Square Simplified Version = Square x5, X, Square x4, Triangle x3, Square This should give you a 16 hit combo. Right, that’s enough of the Heavy Finish hits and the combo’s, let’s get straight onto those Blast moves! Hit the Down button and the (R3) button simultaneously to de-transform Goku back to his Base form. ------------------- VI) Goku’s special moves Oh yes, the Blast moves! It’s time to see the many, many moves of Goku and all of his forms! Lets us start out with Base Goku’s blast 1 moves; Give me energy! How to do it = [L2] + O Cost – 2 Blast Stocks As soon as you do this, Goku will raise his arms into the air, whilst yelling “Share your energy with me!”. Now, if you fly up into the air and look around, then you’ll notice that the Spirit Bomb has appeared! Using Give me Energy! is the only way you can use the Spirit Bomb. If you want to make the Spirit Bomb more powerful then charge it up by using this Blast 1 move 2 more times. You’ll notice that the Bomb gets bigger and bigger each time you use it. Be warned however, because Goku will be completely open while gathering the energy for his most powerful attack. Knock the opponent away from you and then get behind a rock or something. Now is the best time to use Give me energy! If you are interrupted, then you will lose those 2 Blast Stocks and you’ll also have to charge the Spirit Bomb an extra time (if you’re going for a fully charged Spirit Bomb that is...) Also, please note that if you have Goku transform or tag him out of a battle after he has used Give me energy! then the Spirit Bomb will vanish and you’ll be forced to start all over again. Kaio-ken How to do it = [L2] + Up + O Cost – 3 Blast Stocks This is a power up move for Goku. As soon as you input the correct button command, Goku will “KAIO-KEN!!” as his body is engulfed in a red flame. This can be very useful in tight spots because Goku will gain all the stat upgrades. They are – Fist = Increased Strength for melee attacks Lightning = Increased Blast 2 move and Ultimate Blast move power Saiyan Armor = Increased defence Light Blue Cloud = Allows you to fly around faster than usual, but not by much Note that when you use the Kaio-ken, Goku’s ki will be steadily dropping constantly. You will not be able to power up either. Other than that, it doesn’t change the way Goku plays or anything, his combo’s remain the same and he becomes stronger. Kaio-ken also gets Goku up to full ki. Alrighty then, the Blast 2 moves baby! Kamehameha How to do it = [L2] + Triangle Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges Goku’s trademark attack, which he used throughout Dragonball Z! The Kamehameha is a sort of combo beam attack as it does 6 hits of damage. This attack, like many other attacks in Budokai Tenkaichi 2, is a chargeable one. If you want to fully charge it, then it will take you 2 seconds. Let’s take a look at the various damages you can cause with this blue beam of destruction; Non charged = 4800 damage Halfway charged = It should do about 6840 damage Fully charged = 8640 damage Remember that on the higher difficulties, the opponent will regularly teleport of out the way of the Kamehameha. So make sure that it will hit them, before using it! Also, if you used the Kaio-ken power up before using the Kamehameha however, then – Non charged = 5280 damage Halfway charged = It should do about 7500 damage Fully charged = 9480 damage Kaio-ken attack How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges This is a cool rush move. It replicates the Kaio-ken attack that he used on Nappa in the Saiyan saga. Remember, the attack he used to beat him with? Make sure that you are close to the opponent before using this attack, as Goku doesn’t travel far whilst using it. Goku lunges toward his opponent and knocks them up into the sky for 760 damage, he then flies above them and knocks them to the ground making the 760 points of damage – 1520 damage. Finally, he moves quickly, back to the ground where he catches the falling opponent and drops them to the floor making the total damage of this attack – 6010 with 3 hits. If you use the Kaio-ken power up move before using the Kaio- ken attack however... Goku lunges toward his opponent and knocks them up into the sky for 1380 damage, he then flies above them and knocks them to the ground making the 1380 points of damage – 2760 damage. Finally, he moves quickly, back to the ground where he catches the falling opponent and drops them to the floor making the total damage of this attack – 11000 with 3 hits. And now, Goku’s most power attack and one of the most damaging moves in the entire game, it’s the; Spirit Bomb How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + Down + Triangle Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges Okay, firstly remember that you CANNOT use the Spirit Bomb attack unless you have used the Give me energy! Blast 1 move. Goku teleports right under his Ultimate Attack, shouts “Here it comes!” and hurls the big sphere of pure energy right at his opponent! Now I’m going to list all the damages that this devastating attack can cause; Charged once – No Kaio-ken = 16800 damage Charged twice – No Kaio-ken = 15200 damage Charged thrice – No Kaio-ken = 33600 damage Charged once – Kaio-ken is activated = 18480 damage Charged twice – Kaio-ken is activated = 27720 damage Charged thrice – Kaio-ken is activated = 36890 damage I’m now going to list the damages that can be achieved with a maxed out Goku. To max him out (A.K.A. get him to level 160), equip 5 Title [Tenkaichi]’s or 5 Kiss of 18’s on him. Charged once – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 25550 damage Charged twice – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 38290 damage Charged thrice – No Kaio-ken – Level 160 = 51100 damage Charged once – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 30520 damage Charged twice – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 45710 damage Charged thrice – Kaio-ken is activated – Level 160 = 60970 damage! So yeah, now do you see why it’s known as one of the most powerful attacks in the game? Do ya?? Of course you do. A fully charged Spirit Bomb can be incredibly difficult to dodge, so use that if you want to end the fight quickly, or show your friends up! ----- Okaly dokaly! Transform into a Super Saiyan! And by that I mean press the (R3) button to make Goku transform into an SSJ... Whatever, lets just take a look at SSJ Goku’s Blast moves! Up first we have; Wild Sense How to do it = [L2] + O Cost – 3 Blast Stocks This is a very handy little move and it can come in very handy if you’re having trouble with a constantly attacking opponent. It looks as if Goku just does a weird movement and drains 3 quarters of his blast stock, but something in fact has happened. When the opponent next attacks you, hit that Circle button and Goku will teleport next to them and knock them away! This only happens once, so save up some more Blast Stocks if you wish to use it again. Saiyan Soul How to do it = [L2] + Up + O Cost – 2 Blast Stocks This is a cool little Blast 1 move. Goku performs the exact same movements he would do if he were powering up and glows with golden energy, while stating “Don’t hold back!” Now, the strength of his melee attacks and the power of his Blast 2’s and Ultimate Blast have become more powerful. Goku will even gain a weaker form of the Brick Wall effect – ki blasts will not cause him to flinch and much weaker characters attacks will experience great difficulty in moving him. You can keep using Saiyan Soul to keep on increasing your attack power, but it caps at 5. Meaning that if you use the Saiyan Soul after 5 times, you’re just wasting your Blast Stocks, as Goku will not gain more power! Now, I’ll list some of the increasing damages caused by using Saiyan soul 1 – 5 times; Normal Combo (Square x5, X, Square x5) – 0 Saiyan Souls = 4470 damage 1 Saiyan Souls = 4660 damage 2 Saiyan Souls = 4830 damage 3 Saiyan Souls = 5000 damage 4 Saiyan Souls = 5310 damage 5 Saiyan Souls = 5480 damage Grab Move (Up + X) – 0 Saiyan Souls = 2980 damage 1 Saiyan Souls = 3100 damage 2 Saiyan Souls = 3220 damage 3 Saiyan Souls = 3330 damage 4 Saiyan Souls = 3510 damage 5 Saiyan Souls = 3630 damage Angry Kamehameha (Fully Charged version) – 0 Saiyan Souls = 10010 damage 1 Saiyan Souls = 10430 damage 2 Saiyan Souls = 10780 damage 3 Saiyan Souls = 11200 damage 4 Saiyan Souls = 11760 damage 5 Saiyan Souls = 12180 damage Meteor Smash (Including the damage the opponent takes when they connect with the ground) – 0 Saiyan Souls = 10520 damage 1 Saiyan Souls = 10920 damage 2 Saiyan Souls = 11320 damage 3 Saiyan Souls = 11710 damage 4 Saiyan Souls = 12310 damage 5 Saiyan Souls = 12710 damage Instant Kamehameha – 0 Saiyan Souls = 14020 damage 1 Saiyan Souls = 14580 damage 2 Saiyan Souls = 15140 damage 3 Saiyan Souls = 15690 damage 4 Saiyan Souls = 16530 damage 5 Saiyan Souls = 17080 damage Now it’s onto his Blast 2 moves; Angry Kamehameha How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges Oh yes! This is the move he used to defeat Frieza with on Namek! Goku uses only one hand to launch his Kamehameha attack. This is probably my favorite version of the Kamehameha. The Angry Kamehameha (like all the others) is chargeable. Here, I’ll list the various damages for you; Non charged = 5040 Halfway charged = About 7840 damage Fully Charged = 1010010 damage There are only 2 things that I don’t like about this attack. The name “Angry Kamehameha” doesn’t really suit it. I’d prefer Kamehameha of Rage, heck I’d even take One Handed Kamehameha... Secondly, Goku says “DARN YOUUUU!!!” when he performs it. Why does he say darn you?? It should have at least been damn you or something like that. Here’s hoping that he yells “YOU FOOOOOOOL!!!” when using this attack in Budokai Tenkaichi 3! Meteor Smash How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle Ki Cost – 3 ki gauges This is Goku’s personal Rush move. He kicks his opponent away and then slugs them with his fist, sending them even farther away. Teleporting right behind them, he does a small combo, ending with him kneeing his opponent in the back and then smashing them back down onto the ground with his fists! This will produce an attack that does 10520 damage spread amongst 11 hits. Use this move if you want to surprise the opponent. Goku travels quite far when he uses this rush move, so use it when in a jam. If you want, amp up the damage it does with a few Saiyan Souls. You can see how much damage it does in the Saiyan Soul damage section a little bit above this text you’re reading right now! Okay then, its Ultimate Blast time! Instant Kamehameha How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + Down + Triangle Ki Cost – 4 ki gauges “Here goes!” says Goku as he looks toward the sky as if to plan a strategy. He then proceeds to elbow the opponent and knock them into the air, only to knock them back onto the ground a second later. He begins to charge his most famous blast “KA... ME... HA... ME...” as the opponent tries to rush him. However, the ever resourceful Goku IT’s to their side and releases the blast “HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!” and the opponent is flying away! This attack is a different version of the one he used on Perfect Cell in the Cell Games Tournament. In the Anime, Goku charged his Kamehameha in the air as if to shoot it at the Earth and cell, but he used his Instant Transmission technique at the last second to appear right in front of Cell. THAT’S when he launched his attack! This move will produce 21 hits at 14020 damage. If you want, then spice up its damage rating with a few Saiyan Souls! Goku doesn’t travel very far when rushing at his opponent to use this move. So make sure that he is close when you want to use it. ----- Woah, where do you think you’re going? We’ve still got 2 more forms worth of Blast Moves to get through yet! Press that (R3) button to go into Super Saiyan 2 form! Ahem, the Blast 1 moves; Instant Transmission How to do it = [L2] + O Cost – 2 Blast Stocks I love this B1 move! This is the technique that Goku learned while he was staying on the Planet Yardrat, straight after his epic battle with the tyrant known as Frieza. Goku places both his index and middle fingers on his forehead and instantly appears behind his opponent. This technique can make some of the most difficult battle a whole lot easier! My advice is to wait for the opponent to launch a Blast 2 attack at you and then use Instant Transmission. Goku will appear right behind his opponent while their still in the attack pose allowing you to do more damage because you’ll be attacking them from behind. This is a great little move to use and is very fun to abuse! Hehe, rhyme! Full Power How to do it = [L2] + Up + O Cost – 3 Blast Stocks “Here goes!” says Goku quickly, as he does a small movement with his hands. This moves does exactly what it says on the tin... erm command list – It gets you Full Power! Goku enters Max Power mode, also acquiring all the stat upgrades in the process. Use this move if you want to use a Blast 2 or your Ultimate Blast move. Be warned however, that Goku’s ki charging speed will be halved when the duration of this Max Power mode comes to an end. To shake off this nasty little side effect, simply power up into Max Power mode again, but by yourself this time. Blast 2 moves! NAO!! Meteor Smash How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle Ki Cost – 4 ki gauges If you think that this move is exactly the same as the last rush... then you’re absolutely correct. Nothing changes except it does some more damage and costs 1 more ki gauge to perform. SSJ2 Goku’s Meteor Smash will now do 11530 points of damage to your opponent. Bring on the Ultimate Blast! Super Kamehameha How to do it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + Down + Triangle Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges Super Kamehameha?? Is that the best move they could give to SSJ2 Goku for his Ultimate?? Whatever. “Full power!” spouts Goku as he charges up a bigger than usual Kamehameha wave. He then releases the beam unto his unfortunate opponent, effectively causing 14800 points of damage, spread across 8 hits. Be sure to use this attack when you know the opponent isn’t expecting it, because this is not a rush type move. It would be nice if it was, but it isn’t. Oh yeah, the Super Kamehameha of Super Saiyan 2 Goku doesn’t come cheap either, at 5 ki gauges required to use this attack be sure that you have ki to spare. Also, if you used the Full Power B1 move before using the super Kamehameha then it will end up doing 15440 points of damage. It’s not his best Ultimate blast. ----- *Grabs you and sits you back down on your chair* Still not done! Press the (R3) button one more time and let us examine Super Saiyan 3 Goku’s Blast Moves! Like all his other forms, we’ll be starting out with his Blast 1 moves; Instant Transmission How to do it = [L2] + O Cost – 2 Blast Stocks Good news, Instant Transmission’s back baby! You won’t be able to use it as much as SSJ2 Goku could however, due to the fact that SSJ3 Goku only has 3 Blast Stocks to spare, while SSJ2 had 4 of them. IT is exactly the same as the last time – You can get behind the opponent and deal more damage. Power up to the Very Limit How to do it = [L2] + Up + O Cost – 3 Blast Stocks This move is exactly the same as SSJ2 Goku’s Full Power Blast 1 move. the only difference is the name. Power up to the Very Limit, like Full Power, gets you straight into Max Power mode with all of the stat upgrades. It also lowers your ki charging speed after the Max Power phase has ended. Blast 2 moves, Blast 2 moves!! Super Kamehameha How to do it = [L2] + Triangle Ki cost – 4 ki gauges Super Saiyan 2 Goku’s rather disappointing Ultimate Blast returns as a Blast 2 move for his SSJ3 counterpart. It still does a lot of damage and it still costs a lot of ki (4 ki gauges!!). The only difference to the super Kamehameha now is that it is chargeable. Here are the damages you can achieve with it (I’ll also include the damages that you would cause if you used Power up to the Very Limit beforehand); Non charged = 6540 damage Half way charged = It should cause about 9720 damage Fully charged = 12360 damage Also, note that it does take time to fully charge. It will take 3 seconds to charge the Super Kamehameha fully. Super Explosive Wave How to do it = [L2] + Up + Triangle Ki cost – 4 ki gauges No this move looks impressive! Goku releases a (what do you think?) Super Explosive Wave that does 5 hits and 8350 points of damage. If however, you used the Power up to the Very Limit B1 move before using this, then it will do 10600 damage to the enemy. This can be a great move for ending a battle with. Use this move when in a real jam. Also, you know how when a character wants to use a Blast 2, or an Ultimate Move and he or she always has to hop back a little if the opponent is too close? Well, the Super Explosive Wave is another story! Goku (and the other characters that can use Super Explosive Wave) can use this devastating Blast 2 move without hopping back a little bit! A very useful Blast 2 move we have here. Okay then, one more attack and we’re done! Its time for his impressive Ultimate Blast, named; Super Dragon Fist How to use it = Power up into Max Power mode and then press [L2] + Down + Triangle Ki Cost – 5 ki gauges Hehe! This attack will look very familiar to you if you have seen Dragonball Z movie 13 – Wrath of the Dragon! Goku uses this very technique to destroy the gigantic monster called Hildegarn. SSJ3 Goku rushes up to his opponent and bats them away with his fist before exclaiming “If I don’t who will?? DRAGON FIST!!” The doomed opponent can only watch on in horror as Goku charges toward them with a punch that emits what looks like a golden Shenron. This powerful attack does 12 hits and 18010 points of damage! Cool huh? Of course, if you used that Power up to the Very Limit B1 move before using the Super Dragon Fist, then it will end up doing 19090 damage to the unfortunate opponent. And that’s all for Goku’s moves! ------------------- VII) How to use Goku Well, he has many different forms, so there are a good variety of moves to bamboozle your opponents with. Unfortunately, poor old Goku suffers from that dreaded No Stun First Hit Syndrome, meaning that all his punches after the first one can easily be blocked by the enemy. Another weird thing is that Goku has quite a bit of trouble making giants and Oozaru’s flinch, even his Super Saiyan 2 form is crap at making giant characters flinch, at least in the first part of the combo that it. Remember to time his charged blasts, so that the opponent will rush right into them. When in SSJ2 and SSJ3 form, use that Instant Transmission straight after the opponent has launched a Blast 2 move and then unload a combo on them! Cycle through all of his forms and use the moves that you feel are right for the battle you’re in! ------------------- VIII) Vs quotes Have Goku fight the corresponding characters to initiate some special dialogue between the 2 of them. Also, keep an eye out for the glitches in this section... apparently Goku thinks that he’s Frieza’s dad and that his son is his grandpa! O_o!! His SSJ form also seems to confuse friend from foe, as he usually says “If you don’t give up your evil ways, I’ll be here to stop you!” to most of his friends, such as Yamcha and Tien. Kid Gohan Teen Gohan Gohan Ultimate Gohan Krillin Android Saga Vegeta Buu Saga Vegeta Majin Vegeta Bardock Raditz Nappa Scouter Vegeta Recoome Burter Captain Ginyu Frieza Fourth Form Frieza Mecha Frieza Android #16 Goku – Okay, time for some practice!

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