Tenkaichi 3 is a game produced by Spike and published in America by Atari. I am not affiliated with any of these groups. This FAQ was written for gamefaqs.com. You may post it elsewhere, I really don't care, just remember: you saw it first on Gamefaqs! (And you saw it written by FINDKENSHI) --------------- 2. Introduction --------------- So, anyone who knows me from the message boards, knows that I'm not the biggest fan of Dragonball GT. That may leave some of you asking, why a Syn Shenron FAQ for Tenkaichi 3? Even those of you who don't know me may also be asking the same thing. What's so special about Syn Shenron? I'll tell you. Put simply, Syn Shenron is top-tier in this game. His combo options are sub par, he's somewhat slow, and his ultimate blast leaves much to be desired. --wait. I just said he's top-tier, then went on to name several crippling disadvantages? Yep. But I still say he's top tier, and there's one reason alone for this. Blazing Storm. I first discovered this move while playing through Mission 100 in Ultimate Battle mode. In one of the missions, I had to face Syn Shenron and some other guys. The first time he used Blazing Storm on me, I thought the game had glitched. There was just this big flash of light, and boom; I was hit instantly. It hadn't seemed like I'd had any chance to dodge it. Later I went into Duel Mode and tested the move, myself. Indeed this wonderful blast 2 seemed to auto-hit from anywhere. I went and made a thread about it on the Gamefaqs message board for Tenkaichi 3, and it was proven to me that the move CAN be dodged, it just takes some practice. Despite this, few denyed that the move was strange compared to any of the other attacks in the game, and that it was excessively difficult to avoid it completly. Anyone who continued to deny this fact was shot down by multiple vouches from several other respected "gameplay gurus" that confirmed this attack to be the most difficult to avoid in the game. For this reason I came up with a perfect Potara build that would utilize this powerful special move, practically to the point of ABUSE. I will tell you right now that the build this FAQ presents will make it 100% impossible to lose against the computer, but will also make you DEADLY to most human opponents as well. Be warned though, when against human opponents (either 2- player or online with the wii) it will not 100% guarentee you victory; but it will definitly give you the edge. -------------- 3. Syn Shenron -------------- If I wasn't a Dragonball fan, I wouldn't be here making this FAQ, so I'll start with a (very) brief description of the Syn Shenron character and "what he's all about." Then we'll take a close look and analyze him in this game. STORY: Syn Shenron is one of the evil "Shadow Dragons" that appeared in the series: Dragonball GT. He was the group's ring leader, and represents the One-Star Dragonball. He showed up after Goku had defeated Eis Shenron. The first thing he did was blast Nouva Shenron from behind, when he noticed that Nouva and Goku had formed a truce. Still blinded from his fight against Eis, Goku struggled to survive against Syn Shenron's onslaught. Finally, Goku's friends and families showed up; and gave Goku most of their Super Saiyan energy, while Uub stalled time. Powered up, Goku bested Syn Shenron, even though he was blind. Not ready to admit defeat yet, Syn absorbed the rest of the Dragonballs and became "Omega Shenron". From this point on, "Syn" doesn't play that big a role anymore. GAME: First lets Discuss Syn Shenron's moveset. If you have a question on how to do any of these moves, refer to the in-game Skill List (in the pause menu). It differes between PS2 vs Wii. ------- BLAST 1 ------- Mystic Breath - 1 blast guage This blast 1 can repel practically any blast 2, completly protecting you from damage. It won't work on "super explosive wave" type attacks, nor on Blazing Storm, but it does provide protection from a great deal of blast 2s. The only problem is that its "activation time" is somewhat slow, so you really have to be far enough away to use it in time. Still, comes in handy, especially with its low cost. Explosive Wave - 1 blast guage This blast 1 can repel your opponent away from you, knocking them straight into minimum blast 2 range (which is VERY nice). It will also cancel any combo, which makes it even more beautiful. Basically, this Explosive Wave move will become bread-and-butter for Syn Shenron players, as you will see in the strategy section. This will NOT stop blast 2s, however, but hey; we have Mystic Breath for that. ------- BLAST 2 ------- TRAP SHOOTER - 2 Energy Bars This move has been severly 'nerfed' compared to Tenkaichi two. Trap Shooter now works like it was originally intended, that is, it shoots out a "scatter shot" that is good for catching a fleeing opponent, but not causing much damage. Although this move is not COMPLETLY worthless, and should not be ignored. Since it has only the cost of 2 energy bars, it is very useful to tag an opponent who's rushing straight at you trying to prevent you from powering up to 4 bars. BURNING STORM - 4 Energy Bars Ah, Burning Storm. The whole point of this FAQ. This move is similar to Nappa's version, only it is much faster, and covers a wider area. When you use Blazing Storm, there will be a short cutscene of Syn putting his hand forward, and gripping his wrist with the other hand. Then it activates and BOOM, a bright flash of light and a huge explosion. Or, more accruately: multiple explosions, traveling from left to right (from Shenron's prespective) in a crescent shape. The move hurts, bad. And it's VERY fast, and hard to dodge. Not IMPOSSIBLE to dodge, but definitly harder then any other attack in the game. The ONLY dissadvantage of the move is it's big cost (which is completly nullified with my Potara Build and a little bit of skill.) This move is the end-all technique to use against the computer. The comp can simply not avoid this technique, no matter what the difficulty setting is. ---MELEE--- This faq assumes you are already familiar with the basic gameplay elements of the Tenkaichi series. If you aren't, I suggest playing through the in-game tutorial completly, and then when you're finished with that; grab a character and go into practice mode. Open up the menu by pausing the game, pick View Skill List, and start on the left tab working your way to the right tab (going down the list for each tab), attempting every single thing listed in your Skill List. ---RUSH COMBO--- combo 1: heavy finish combo 2: blaster wave combo 3: rush ki wave combo 4: heavy finish Heavy Finish: Syn Shenron's heavy finish is somewhat sluggish, and can be easily teleported. You probably want to shy away from using it too much. The only good thing is that its somewhat damaging as far as heavy finishers are concerned. Remember, the longer you charge it, the longer the stun time/damage. Blaster Wave: This one is nice for its range. I suggest you NOT execute the follow-up combo (Blaster Wave Combo) as Syn's speed during this move is so slow, it's almost hard to NOT teleport out of it. The wave alone though is a good way to guard crush, or to send an annoying opponent out of your face and into perfect Blazing Storm range. Rush Ki wave: One of the more neat-looking new combo enders for Tenkaichi 3. It's actually not that useful. I find this thing easy to block, although it can be somewhat good for gaining distance on an opponent if you can happen to catch them off guard. Since it has such a slow activation when charged, I'd mostly just avoid using it though unless you really know how to bypass your opponents defenses consistently. ---THROW--- Syn's throw is very slow, but its damaging if you connect. It can be hard to cancel via the guard button, but it's quite easy to just throw a punch when you see him getting into throw animation, so i wouldn't try to spam throws or anything, you'll proabably get a mean combo dealt out to you as a reward. ---TRANSFORMATION--- Absorbed Dragonballs - 2 blast guage This will transform you into "Omega Shenron". Considering this guide is a Syn Shenron one, I would suggest you NOT do this, as you will lose Blazing Storm and instantly nerf yourself. The only way i could justify transformation is to finish the opponent off--maybe you're in max power and have 2 extra blast guages to waste, just transform after they are down from a Blazing Storm and then immediatly use Minus Energy Power Ball. Still, I'd say don't transform except to show off after victory is certain. --------------- 4. Potara build --------------- Syn Shenron's Potara build is designed around the fact that Blazing Storm has the somewhat hefty cost of 4 ki bars. Despite this, I suggest shying AWAY from Demon Seal. But this cuts the cost in half, why not use it? Because it also nerfs your health. More health = better, especially if you are planning to use this build in competitive play against other players (ie, online matches). For another thing, Demon Seal takes up 4 ability, so you won't be able to get that nice charge-up speed without sacrificing damage. So what DO I suggest you use? Lets take a look. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -FINDKENSHI'S SPAM'O'STORM BUILD- Launch's Support (Ability Used: 2) Ki Power Up 3 (Ability Used: 3) Super Up 3 & Attack Down 1 (Ability Used: 2) (EVIL TYPE) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First things first, this question gets asked alot. How do you get Launch's Support. Launch's Support is available in the Z-item shop after you get 100% collection for all the other items. To do this you'll have to rack up big z- points, as well as beat every mode in Ultimate Battle. For you PS2 players, no; you do not have to beat Disc Fusion. Finally, you'll have to collect the Dragonballs a few times and wish for the last few capsules. Once your list is completly filled out, youll be able to buy Launch's Support in the item shop. It's a Yellow Type Potara. Anyway, lets discuss this build a bit. Launch's Support has [plus effect] "Ki charging becomes faster." Ki Power Up 3 does the same thing, only more so. Combine the two together? Now your energy charges up VERY fast. So fast, infact, that you can spam your blast 2 moves quite nicely! The third item (EVIL TYPE blue potara) just seems like the logical best option to me, but you can use anything else you want to. Anyway, this will boost the power of your blast 2 moves by about 30% or so. (It's actually closer to 28%) A solid boost. (The damage goes from 10,000 to 13,750 against Normal Ultimate Gohan for example). The Negative effect to attack power will not be a problem, since this build focuses on spamming blast 2s, not on doing fancy combos. For those who absolutly do not have the patience/time to get Launch's Support, I have included an alternate build. Although I will tell you right now. It's not very good by comparison. You'd be MUCH better off putting forth the effort to get Launch's Support. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -ALTERNATE BUILD- Demon Seal (Ability Used: 4) (EVIL TYPE) Ki Power Up 3 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As you can see, not much to this build. Since we can't charge as fast as the Primary Build without Launch's Support, we have to use Demon Seal to cut the cost down to 2 energy bars for Blazing Storm. But this sacrifices a whole bar of life...which is really bad. And we still need at least Ki Power Up 3, because Syn Shenron's unaided charge-up speed is quite slow, meaning you'd have a real hard time spamming the move without it. Much to be desired with this build. Trust me, get Launches Support. It's not THAT hard to get those dragonballs, and its quite fun playing through Ultimate Battle mode. It's how you'll start getting good at the game. ----------- 5. Strategy ----------- The basic concept of the strategy is EXTREMLY simple. You charge up energy and then fire off Blazing Storm. You do this over and over, thus the strategy is what the online gaming community calls "spamming." In this build, we rely on the difficulty of avoiding Blazing Storm to give us the overwhelming advantage. Coupled with the move's mega damage, and you will win in a hurry. That is not to say there isn't depth to using this build. ----VS COMPUTER: Vs the computer, the build is a total no brainer. Start the match off by getting distance, and then just spend the whole match powering up, firing off Blazing Storms as you can. The computer, for some reason, cannot dodge this move; under almost any circumstances. Be advised that the move has a "maximum distance", so if you're too far away, it won't hit. It's best to be at least mid range. When the computer manages to get into your face and start dealing out annoying combos, just use Explosive Wave, and immediatly start spamming the controls to do Blazing Storm. USUALLY, this will result in you pushing them right into Blazing Storm range, and then immediatly executing the attack: Which quite frankly, is an auto-hit. If you do not have the blast guage to pull off an explosive wave you could always counter in some other wave. There is the forced combo breaker (L1, L1 on ps2) which hurts YOU, but pushes them right into Blazing Storm range, there is Z-Counter 2, and also teleporting. If worse comes to worse, just be patient, and take the damage. It's just the computer after all. Eventually you'll get free of them, and then its Blazing Storm all the way. Seriously with this build and just a bit of practice, you will never have trouble swatting the computer again, whether it be in Mission 100 Mode, the Cell Games tournament, or anything. As long as you can pick Syn Shenron; victory is assured. (NOTE FOR DRAGON SIM) Yes, you can only pick "Normal" instead of "Custom" for Dragon Sim, so Blazing Storm becomes more difficult to spam rapidly. However, if you explore a lot you will eventually start finding Potara. If you're extremly lucky you might get something that changes your Power Up speed (for the better, one would hope). This is, however, quite a slim thing to hope for, so if you really aren't skilled enough to beat the CPU by conventional means without spamming: you may want to try this. Just fight like a coward. Flee and always build up your power. He charges kind of slow without Potara, and 4 ki bars seems like a lot, but to be honest, it's not really that much. You can still kind of "spam" the move, the one thing that never changes is this: the computer will never ever dodge it. Use this knowledge to your advantage, and I'm sure Syn Shenron will pull through for you, even in Dragon Sim. ----VS HUMAN: Vs the human opponent, things get trickier. Remember, now your opponent has an actual brain. They will know what you are up to, and immediatly try to stop you. The one way they will go about doing this is to try to stick to you like glue, and prevent you from powering up at all costs. For this reason, we have to be sneaky. Do hit and run. If they are in your face, push them back with an explosive wave. If you have enough ki to do Blazing Storm, immediatly do so. If not, DO NOT RUN, rather, just use Trap Shooter. It only costs 2 energy bars. Many people utilizing this strategy of mine on the Wifi for Wii are neglecting Trap Shooter. It can be GREAT to gain a little bit of extra time to build up a Blazing Storm. If say you are getting comboed bad and have enough ki to do trap shooter, push them back with Explosive Wave, hit them with Trap Shooter immediatly aftewards, and by the time they get back up, you will have enough ki to do Blazing Storm. Now, keep in mind, Blazing Storm is not 100% unavoidable. If you are too far away, they can avoid it pretty easily. YOu want to be as close as you comfortablly can. Chances are if you just keep spamming the move over and over again, and keep them on the defense, they will slip up more often then not (since the timing to avoid this thing is VERY precise). KEEP YOUR OPPONENT ON THE DEFENSE. If they get up in your face, do not sit there spamming the Z-counter control fruitlessly. Just use EXPLOSIVE WAVE. That's what it's there for. Remember, it will push them RIGHT into blast 2 radius. You either follow up explosive wave with trap shooter to buy time, or Blazing Storm if you have enough ki. Know when to fire. If you just stand in one place and constantly use Blazing Storm, chances are the only types of players you will beat are "newbies." Rush at them and use it at close range. Hit them with it immediatly after a Blaster Wave. Or my favorite of all, wait unitl they use a rush-type blast2, and use it right when they get near you. It will cause you to step-back and stop their movement, then you will launch it right in thier face from mimimum distance. Also look for your opponent to shoot a blast 2 at you, simply avoid it by dashing if you are far enough, and then launch Blazing Storm as quickly as you can. Another GREAT tiem to use it is when the opponent enters Dragon Dash towards you. Just use it immediatly, this is always a sure fire way to smack them out of your face with some nice hefty 10,000+ damage. If your opponent spams blast 2s on you, simply dodge and make them eat Blazing Storm. Unless they are using Blazing Storm as well (discussed below this) there is no other blast 2 that is as hard to avoid as yours. If you want to show off, use Mystic Breath to stop their blast 2, it will annoy them while making you laugh. Every now and then you will encounter someone with an Anti-blazing storm build, that is someone with mirage designed to double-teleport, or someone with Potaras that allow you to take less damage while blocking. In this case, you will have to catch these guys off guard. Some skill is involved, but do not fear, Blazing Storm will pull through for you. One of the most difficult times to dodge this move is while you are getting up from a previous attack. Do short simple combos that knock players back and stun them, like a Ground Slash followed by "Dragon Tornado" and then use Blazing Storm after they hit the ground. Chances are, they eat it. Do not go into the match thinking you will automatically win every game just because you spam Blazing Storm. Train like mad to get good at combos, and learn the short quick combos that leave them stunned. Remember we're not aiming for high damage long combos here, we're aiming for moves that leave the opponent wide open to Blazing Storm. ---- ANTI BLAZING STORM. "Oh my gosh, I'm playing someone who intends to spam Blazing Storm at me, what should I do?" There is action you can take against this. Blazing Storm is not flawless. A certain potara setup along with a certain style of play can bring you out on top of a Storm Spammer. Unless, of course, they read this strategy guide of mine; in which case it'll be the fight of your life. But still, even then, you can still beat it. There's one important thing to know about Blazing Storm. Despite being so hard to DODGE, it's not at all hard to BLOCK. Most people simply try to desperatly flee the attack, and that's when they eat it and suffer. If you keep a cool head about you, and simply hold down the GUARD button, you will block it. It's really that simple. Directly after using Blazing Storm, Syn Shenron is also open to attack, so keep that in mind. The other way to avoid Blazing Storm is to just completly dodge it, so that you take no damage, nor do you have to hault and block. But this method is VERY hard to pull off in the middle of a heated battle, as the timing is precise. If you're REALLY good you can pull off a DOUBLE teleport, but you're better off with the Mirage potara. Simply go to Ultimate Training Practice, and practice teleporting the first hit of Blazing Storm. This is accomplished by tapping guard once the INSTANT before it hits you. Again, the timing is VERY precise. In most cases, simply teleporting like this will cause you to take the second hit anyway, making it worthless. But with the Mirage potara, if you can teleport the FIRST hit, it will automatically teleport the rest of the hits FOR you. Another Potara to keep in mind is Mirical Master. This will allow you to teleport the move when you are knocked down, which is a vulnerable moment most of the time, but not with this handy item. Combine it with Mirage for added protection. If you find Tele-doging is simply too difficult, or just too unreliable, then you'll have to go with the block method. If that's the case, I suggest you equip "Perfect Guard", as it allows you to take no damage while blocking, which is VERY NICE. So now lets look at one possible "anti blazing storm potara build." --------------------------------- Miracle master (Ability Used: 2) Mirage (Ability Used: 1) Perfect Guard (Ability Used: 2) --------------------------------- That build only uses up 5 ability total, leaving you 2 more to play with; and use whatever you want. If you are absolutly horrible at tele-dodging it, you may as well just drop Mirage off the build and then you'll have 3 points left over to play with. The choice is up to you. Once you find the build thats best for you, it's a good idea to have this set-up on your favorite characters' alternate Customs. (We get three different Custom Builds to save, which is very nice) That way if you ever see an opponent pick Syn Shenron, you can just happily pick your Anti-Blazing Storm setup without hesitating. So now that you know the methods of combating the Blazing Storm, lets discuss some basic strategy putting it to good use. You certainly don't want to just stand around and tempt fate by trying to avoid this move too many times. I wouldn't be MAKING this FAQ if Blazing Storm wasn't a SPECTACULAR move that is VERY hard to avoid. So, yeah, don't take your chances. The best thing to do is stick to your opponent like glue. Do not give him breathing room. And I'm not talking just about comboing. If you see him powering up, and you can; blast him with a blast 2. This will at least make him stop powering up in order to dodge, in which you can do a dragon dash to him and start punishing him more. Take every opportunity to interupt him. If he pushes you out of his face with an explosive wave, be prepared to teleport dodge an immediate blast 2 (if he's a good player), OR (depending on your character) you may be JUST fast enough to get back into his face after an explosive wave before he can get a storm off. Remember, with patience and skill a Storm Spammer CAN be beaten. Fighting a skilled Syn Shenron player can be rough though. Blazing Storm is in a tier of its own, so don't hesitate to use the Anti-Blazing Storm potara build to give you some extra help. You'll need all the help you can get, after all. Above all, do not get frustrated. If you lose your cool, you'll get sloppy, and then Blazing Storm will turn you into ashes in the blink of an eye. In closing, the last thing I can tell you is to put Practice mode to good use. This move CAN be teleport dodged, if you get the timing down right you will be able to do it on-command most of the time. Now sure, that is easier said then done, especially againt a human opponent that knows exactly how to exploit the move's timing to make it as hard as he can to dodge; but still, it's not impossible. Good luck. ------------------------ 6. Questions and Answers ------------------------ Well, I've caught a LOT of heat over this strategy, and its introduction to the Tenkaichi 3 Wii Board, so I thought that this FAQ was a good place to clear some things up. Q: FindKenshi, is it true you're putting this strategy out there in order to ruin everyone's fun and ruin the online gameplay experience of Tenkaichi 3 on the Wii? A: Absolutly not. For one thing, this strategy is mostly for beating the computer always, with little effort. Some people have trouble beating the Cell Games to unlock King Cold, or beating a certain Mission 100 mission, or what have you. Q: But, didn't you suggest people to spam this move specificaly in online play? A: Yes, that is true, but it was for testing purposes. I didn't own the Wii version of the game at that time. I suspected that the move would be VERY high tier in Player vs Player, and so I wanted to confirm this. You see, when I first pointed this move out, people were downplaying it and telling me I was way off and that the move was very easy to dodge, and even that the move was "worthless". Thus, I made a thread on the wii board asking people to test this move out for me. I just wanted to see, one way or the other, who was right. Q: But didn't you say that the lag of online play is what would make the move good? A: I said the lag would make it BETTER, not that it would make it GOOD. The move is already good to begin with, it doesn't need any help in that category. The strategies here can be used just as effectively offline as online. You can wreck 2 player mode with this move if you use it right. It's still just as hard to dodge without lag. The lag only makes it harder to dodge because it throws your timing off. And timing is VERY important in dodging this move. (But not blocking it, which is extremly easy) Q: Doesn't this strategy ruin the fun of others? Now everyone is spamming this move and it sucks. A: Read my FAQ, I will teach you how to deal with people who use this strategy. Blazing Storm is not invincible, check out my Strategy Section and there is a whole sub-chapter for "Anti-Blazing Storm." Your fun is only ruined if you aren't good enough to avoid it.. but in that case wouldn't your fun be "ruined" if you lost to ANYTHING? Seriously, people, it's an online game. You have to accept that some people out there will be better then you. If people existing that can beat you is grounds for saying that your experience is "ruined", then you should take up hobbies other then gaming, quite frankly. Q: But spamming is cheating. Cheating is bad. A: Spamming is not cheating. It's one way to use a character. Seriously, do not blame me; blame Spike/Atari. They have no rule stipulating how you can and can't use your charcter's blast 2 moves. Spamming is a viable way to win. Some consider it abuse, others just recognize it as "the best way to win a match." Either way, it's not cheating as this is a legitimate part of the game. Q: But still, telling people to do this online is just bad. A: That's not a question, but let me elaborate. I like sharing strategy with other gamers. I like playing competitive games in which the object is to win and best your opponent. It may not be pretty, but at the end of things, Blazing Storm is a good way to win. It makes it tough on your opponent and gives you the edge. Every now and then in online games, you will meet the arrogant guy with the big mouth; and when that happens you'll be thankful that you knew about Blazing Storm so you could "pwn" him easily. Q: I Hate you, FindKenshi, why did you tell everyone about this broken move? A: Someone else would have discovered it eventually. I mean, how naive is it to think that no one else would have ever noticed this? Be thankful that I'M the one who discovered it, so that I made it PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE. Would you rather have only a select elite few know about it? This way, we can now perfect ANTI-Blazing Storm builds and stratgies (several of which I presented here in this FAQ), rather then be caught COMPLETLY off guard. Keeping the move a "secret" would only accomplish making it deadlier. In bringing this broken move to light, we can now be aware of it and know how to deal with it. Knowing is half the battle. Q: I still hate you anyway. A: That's not a question... Q: Well, do you SUPPORT people who spam the move mindlessly in online matches, then? A: If that's the way they know how to win, then that's how they play. This is just a GAME, I really don't care. I know how to deal with the move, and now so can you, because I was kind enough to write this FAQ. At the end of the day, I'm happy my strategy is being used widely with good results. Some people may have never even won a single match until they heard about Blazing Storm, and now they have a winning record. That means that I helped improve someone's game, and yes that does make me happy. The whole purpose of Gamefaqs is to share information that will help people out in video games, not to selfishly hoard info that others can use against you. I just want to close by saying; if you really do hate Blazing Storm and think its an unfair move, then direct your anger at Spike... you know... the people who MADE this game? If they didn't take so many shortcuts and seemed to have such a lacking Quality Assurance Team, we probably wouldn't have a broken special move in the game. But then again, many people will tell you that the move is actually NOT broken. Just because its extremly difficult to avoid completly, doesn't mean its impossible. And, like I said in the strategy section. If all else fails, use the BLOCK BUTTON. Well, thank you for reading. I hope this guide helped people out on both sides of the fence here. If even one person who read this guide is able to unlock King Cold by beating the Cell Games when they could not do so before, then I feel I've done a job well done here. Remember, you saw it first on Gamefaqs. Bye.
