Attack of the Androids! "Ok, so you're stuck on Namek. Freeza's madder than a hornet that's been pegged with a rock, and Gokuu's a Super Saiya-Jin. What's a guy to do? Well, Gokuu has to drop Freeza. This is a simple task, which will take a few rounds of regular attacks, or 1 or 2 Ki blasts. After Freeza's hopes for life have been dashed, Namek explodes... "Ok, so Kakkorot didn't die. But you do need to gather the Dragon Balls so God can bring everyone back to life, including Vegita. So it's time to break off for: The Search for the Dragon Balls: Part 1 "Your team consists of 6 members: Piccolo, Gohan, Kuririn, Yamcha, TenShinHan, and Chao-zu. The interesting thing about this game is that you will have up to 9 people in your group, but you can only use 3 at a time. The other 3 are put in the rear section, but that doesn't mean they're out. Sometimes, the people not on the front line will come forward and attack with a speciality attack. These are as follows: Kuririn launches a blast that splits and hits everything, TenShinHan splits into 4 people and fires on everything, Yamcha creates a Winding Sphere that blasts 1 enemy, Chao-Zu performs a "Mind Stop" attack, preventing the enemy from attacking, Piccolo fires a blast at 1 enemy, And everyone else just fires a blast at an enemy. "So as you can see, the optimal thing to do is to form a team that has strong attacks, while the side line fighters are characters that have effective secondary attacks. My suggestion? Piccolo, Gohan, and Yamcha should be your main group. Yeah, Yamcha. He's pretty strong. You got a problem with that? "Once you've formed your party, it's time to trash some bad guys! After your first fight, the villains will converse with you, revealing that Freeza is alive and well, and he's bringing his father to Earth to destroy everyone. Uh oh! Time to get the Dragon Balls and wish Gokuu back! "You come equipped with the Dragon Radar, so use it and find the nearest ball. Well, let's see...it's in the desert to the East! So head off. Hang on...it's in an enclosed place, and you can't get in! What's a super hero to do? Well, let's try the next one. "The next ball, according to the Radar, is in the north, surrounded by mountains, and the only way in is blocked by a guard. Man, NO one is helping you out! Well, let's go back to the town to see if anyone knows how to get rid of the person up there. On heading back, you'll notice a cave to the north. Enter the cave, and you'll find a man with explosives to spare! Great! Now you can get that Ball in the desert! Head back to the location of the first one, and you'll automatically use the bomb to blow open a cave and get the ball. Great! "Now, you haven't been East of here, so why not go there now? Once you do, you'll discover a house, and a dinosaur next to it. The man in the house says that the Dinosaur isn't feeling too good, and won't leave him alone. After inspecting the dinosaur itself, though, you'll find that it's just eaten something that disagrees with it. Who would know what to do? Talk to the man in the house again, and he'll give you some leaves to make a special potion that'll make it...well, it'll feel better. Unfortunately, you aren't a chemist (Sorry, Gohan...you're not THAT good.), so you need to find someone who can make the potion for you. Head to the town, there's someone there with that expertise. After making the potion for you, go back to the Dinosaur. "Look! The dino ate a Dragon Ball, and that's why it was so sick! Well, clean off the Ball and head towards the explosives guy again. You know, it's always good to have some heavy demolition equipment around...like me, of course. "Now, you've got some explosives, but you need to get into the building where the next Dragon Ball is. No prob! You can probably blow a hole in some of the mountains with it! Travel along the southern side of the mountains until you automatically set the bomb. "Ok, so it didn't blow up the mountains, but it DID distract the guard. Head into the building. Hey! There's someone inside! Beat him up! Now you have 3 Dragon Balls. Time to switch to yours truly, Vegita! Let's beat up some bad guys! "Now it's MY turn to play! Vegita is in the arctic north, training by himself (as usual...). He needs to get to the building complex to join up with everyone else. Unfortunately, the building is blocked off by a protective field. So travel to the north. Hey! There's a building! Let's destroy it! "Hey! There's another one of those buildings in the south! Let's trash it too! NOW try to enter the building. Yep...the force field's gone. Once you get there, though, there's another one of Freeza's flunkies. Drop him, and the rest of the team will join up. They've already found the Dragon Balls, though...no fun for Veggie... "Now that you have all 7 Dragon Balls, Dende calls up Porunga, and you get two wishes. You can either give one of your characters a level up, or plant a Senzu plant. If you choose the latter, you have to press the A button as fast as you can to make it grow. You can grow up to 5 Senzu Seeds per plant. But since the baddies get even stronger, it's your choice. "Now you are immediately contacted by King Kaioh, telling you that Freeza and his dad are there. You immediately go to fight them...taking you to battle. Just try to survive; you can't even hit these guys. After a couple of rounds, a stranger shows up. He easily dices Freeza, then blasts a hole in King Cold. Then he converses with the others. "Uh oh! Gokuu's back! And the stranger wants to fight him! Gokuu goes SSj, at his asking, and he...goes SSj too? How? After fighting a bit, Gokuu asks who he is. He is Trunks, son of Vegita and Bulma, and he is from the future. In his future, everyone is dead because of 2 Androids, created by the evil Dr. Gero. He tells Gokuu that the reason Gokuu didn't get to fight them is because he died from a heart disease. Then he gives Gokuu the medication, and informs him that Freeza's brother, Coola, is headed for Earth. Time to train! Preparing for the Chilly One... "Vegita, realizing that he would be no contest for Coola, asks Bulma's dad, Dr. Briefs, to make a room that can create a 300 G's gravity field for him to train in. He does...but Vegita has to get there now! Travel northwest on the map until you come across a man blocking your path. Beat him up, then continue on to the building. Uh oh...someone else is in the room! And he's FAR stronger than anyone else! Hopefully, you took advantage of the stronger enemies, and built up some levels. "Back to the B-Squad. They have to get to the building in the Southeast, but there's two guards blocking the way. The first one won't fight you, and the second one you can't even get to because there's a house blocking the way! Visit the man in the house, and he'll tell you that the inhabitants of the other houses are being held hostage by some of Coola's cronies. Visit all the other houses, and exempt the baddies from them. Now, head back to the house in the South East, and he'll let you through. "Slight problem. You thought that guy Vegita had to fight was tough? This guy's harder. Hope you got stronger, because if you didn't, you're REALLY done for. Twice over. With a stick. Sideways. "After (hopefully) beating that guy, head to the building. You'll find that Vegita had already saved her, so the gang joins up and heads off towards where Coola's scheduled to land...right where Gokuu, Gohan, and Piccolo have been training! "Their training is simple: You are given a row of cards, and have to pick pairs of matching symbols, or card types. Once you pick a match, then you pick two of the three characters, and they spar for a bit. You keep going until you can't pick any more matches, or you have to pick the 'DBZ III' cards. This ends the training, and you're given experience based off of how much each of them fought. You get 2 shots at this. After that, it's time for Vegita's training! (No affiliation with the Fanfic) "Vegita's training is simple to understand, especially if you've played DBZ 2: Freeza, the Planet Destroyer. All you have to do is play your cards right, and you'll move up to another gravity setting. Seriously. You are given 2-3 cards to beat, and you can draw up to 3 yourself. It's like blackjack. You have to beat the dealer's cards with yours, but you can't go over 15. Remember, a Z stands for 8, so you don't want to get 2 of them. After Vegita's done with 300 Gs, it'll switch back to Gokuu, Piccolo, and Gohan for: The Search for the Dragon Balls: Part 2 "Before you go off searching for Coola's large, not-too-well-hidden ship, you should check your Dragon Radar. That's right! The Dragon Balls are up and working again, so go get them! The only problem with them is, the Radar isn't exact. You have to comb the area around where the Radar says they are to actually find them. Once you do, Shen Long will appear and grant your wish: Piccolo, Gohan, and Gokuu become Level 50 (max) warriors! Now they're ready to destroy Coola! "Once you've powered up major, head to the southwest. You'll find Coola's ship. Enter, and you will find Coola and his croonies. You'll also find your friends, ready to do battle. But Coola isn't interested in these 'Garbage' level fighters, so he sends one of his flunkies to fight you. Big mistake. Drop him, and Coola will realize that he himself will have to take care of you. "But what's this? Vegita's finally shown up, and he's got a new trick up his sleeve: HE can go Super Saiya-Jin! Coola's a little shaken up now, because he believed that only Gokuu could do that. Show him otherwise. "Great. You beat up Coola, and he reveals that HE can transform too! Well, deal with his stronger form as best as you can. It'll be quite a difficult battle. Hope you have some Senzus left..." The Androids Surface "With Coola gone, and the world in no immediate danger, it's time to relax, right? After you battle with Coola, Yajirobee shows up with a Senzu plant. Jam on the A button to grow some seeds, 'cause you'll need them. Suddenly, Yajirobee's car explodes! Sadly, he's alright, but you need to find out what blew it up! Head off! "You are now in three groups, with everyone alive and well again (regardless of whether or not they died against Coola). The map consists of a cave mouth, a building containing Karin (who will heal you), and a King Kaioh's Training/Joke Center. Unfortuantely, Gokuu comes down with the heart disease (if you actually bothered to build Gokuu up a few levels...if not, he'll stay). "Every so often, you will be approached by someone, who will tell you that the Androids are wreaking havoc to the (direction) of you. So you need to understand Japanese to find them, right? Wrong! All you need to do is place one of your characters on the cave entrance, and travel 23 spaces to the north, 2 to the west. You will automatically find the androids, and get into a fight with them. Now get your other teams over there quick, before they get trashed! "Now that you have all three groups there, beat up # 19. He'll die easily, leaving Dr. Gero scared enough to run away. At this point, Trunks shows up, asking who these guys are. Gero then makes his break for his lab. After you chase him to his lab, he reactivates # 17 and # 18, the REAL Android threat to Trunks' future. They grow tired of Dr. Gero, since he wants them to obey him. He tells them not to open up # 16, since he was unstable and too powerful for his own good. They kill him off instead. Then they walk off towards the East. Follow them! "Your team catches up to them, and they decide to have a little fun. By killing you. Hope you're ready, because now you have to deal with the Androids. I suggest you keep Kuririn, TenShinHan, and Chao-Zu in the back, and switch between Vegita, Trunks, Gohan, Piccolo, and Yamcha (and Gokuu, if you have him) so they don't die. This will be a very hard battle... "After you beat (or lose to) the Androids, # 16 decides to fulfill his programming by taking out Gokuu. Gokuu now has to square off against # 16 alone. Good luck, there's not much I can tell you to do but hope and pray you can get some healing cards. Just make sure you go SSJ; you'll do more damage that way. The End...? "If you lost to the Androids, or if you won, then Piccolo will make a decision. There is a stronger enemy out there, he can sense it. But since he had so much trouble taking care of the Androids, he needs to make a VERY drastic decision. He goes up to Kami's lookout, seeking his Father's other half. God approaches, and decides that Piccolo is right. They fuse together to become a super fighter the likes of which no one has seen! "But there is a slight problem with this development...Piccolo immediately discovers the strength he was sensing: Cell. They fight, but to a draw. Then Cell escapes...does he get to the Androids? Or is he thwarted by Gokuu and the others? And will Gokuu be able to face this new challenger? If he does, will he live? Am I forshadowing the Manga any?" To be continued...
