New moves, new stages, new characters, & a whole new soundtrack to boot, what more could you want from the latest DBZ game? I've decided to get some character FAQ's done due to my recent haitus period from walkthroughs (many of which still need to be finished!) whilst i've also been doing other projects & getting chance to enjoy some awesome & dare i say classic retro gaming ^_^ This walkthrough is a character FAQ & due to the numerous new moves, & tweaks to the tenkaichi combat system, the FAQ has been primarily composed for the purpose of getting the most if not the best out of your chosen character/s. The character FAQ is for newcomers, beginners, & experts alike & I do hope you will find it a useful resource for this amazing game, so let's get started KAME-HA-ME-HAAAAAAA!!! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 2) Character profile:- Chiaotzu - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - (Note:Character profile is taken from the character reference libary) Originally he was a student of the Crane Hermit, a rival of Master Roshi. He is a fellow pupil to Tien. He adores Tien and always goes everywhere with him. His specialty is his psychic ability, During his match with Krillin and when Tien was fighting Goku, he made full use of it and tormented them by paralyzing them. He has a big heart, and in the fight with Nappa he threw his own life away and self destructed to save Tien. The truth is he only has one hair on his head. - - - - - - - - - - - 3) Why choose Chiaotzu? - - - - - - - - - - - Chiaotzu at first glance appears a frail character & not someone you would pick due to the way he's usually perceived, apperances can be very deceptive! Chiaoutzu's attacks are rapid & relentless, he can rack up a large combo in the mear blink of an eye. Opponents may well underestimate him...big mistake! Sure Chiaotzu has weaknesses (as does every character) & these are his low defense & his really low health capacity, that's nothing to worry about though all thanks to 'Evolution Z.' Chiaotzu's normal Ki blasts are fast & he can even immobolise his opponent utilizing his psychic powers, keeping many a mighty character in check with the proper element of suprise. His ultimate attack can be a double edged sword though, as it leaves Chiaotzu with dangerously low health but as said before using 'Evolution Z' & the custom setups contained within this FAQ you will find ways to benefit this close to suicide technique. Chiaotzu is great for beginners, you will be able to grasp the basics of combat up to some more mid-advanced combat tactics while not having the drawback of a difficult to control character. I'd say give him a shot and see what you think, personally Chiaotzu has suprised me with his apperance in the Tenkaichi series & he has alot of potential that could take you far, be it Vs battles, 'survival', 'Sim dragon', or even the 'Dragon World Tour.' Good luck and i hope you enjoy using Chiaotzu as much as I have. >->->->->->->->->->->-> 4) Chiaotzu's Move list >->->->->->->->->->->-> _ Key:|_|= square button /\ = Triangle button O= Circle button /\= Up (d-pad) |__| \/= Down(d-pad) ______________ Special moves | ______________| Ki/blast required Command Telekinesis:(Unblockable) 1 level blast stock L2 + O Afterimage: 2 levels blast stock L2 + /\ + O Dodon ray: 2 levels Ki gauge L2 + /\ |__| Psychic rock throw: 3 levels Ki gauge L2 + /\ + /\ |__| Farewell, Mr. Tien: 5 levels Ki gauge L2 + \/ + /\ (max power) |__| ____________ Rush combos | ____________| _ Key: |_| = Square button /\ = Triangle button X= x button |__| Command/s Damage Hits _________ ______ _____ _ |_| 210 1 _ _ |_|, |_| 420 2 _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_| 630 3 _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 920 4 _ _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 1330 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 1610 6 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, X , |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 3180 15 Ki blasts _________ /\ |__| (Chargeable) 1430 damage /\ /\ |__|, |__| 990 damage Throw ________ X, X 1310 damage _________________ Rushing technique| _________________| _ /\ Flying kick |_|, |__| _ _ /\ Flying kick |_|,|_|,|__| _ _ _ /\ Flying kick |_|, |_|, |_|, |__| _ _ _ _ /\ Heavy finish (chargeable) |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |__| Lift strike (chargeable) (during rush) /\ + /\ Ground slash (chargeable) (during rush) \/ + /\ |__| Body strike (during rush) O button ____________________ Signature technique | ____________________| _ Key: X= X button /\ = Triangle button |_|= Square button O= Circle button |__| /\= up(d-pad) \/= down(d-pad) <- = left(d-pad) -> =right(d-pad) Sway flying kick X, /\ |__| Sway lift strike (chargeable) X, /\, /\ + |__|, Sway ground slash X, \/, /\ + |__| Step in sway X, O _ Dragon smash (after full power smash hit) /\, \/, <- or -> + |_| Vanishing attack After full power smash hit /\. \/, <- or -> /\ |__| lightning attack (after full power smash hit) O Sonic sway (before opponents rush attack hits/connects) O + /\ |__| Sonic sway attack /\ |__| (immediately after sonic sway) High speed rush movement (during rush) /\,\/, <-, or -> + O button Counter- High speed rush movement (whilst opponent is in high speed rush movement) O button Z counter O button (immediately after vanishing attack) Counter- Z counter O button (immediately before Z counter hit) _ Burst smash (while attacking with z burst) /\, \/, <- or -> + |_| super movement /\, \/, <- or -> + O button (max power) _ Hyper smash (chargeable) /\, \/, <- or -> + |_| (max power) _________ Combo | _________| _ Key: |_| = Square button, /\ = Triangle button X= X button |__| /\= up (d-pad) \/= down (d-pad) *(Max power)= Must be in maximum power mode achieved through charging Ki _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Rush finish |_|, |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_| _ _ _ _ _ Rush in |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|,|_|, X _ _ _ _ _ _ Rush in attack |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, X, /\ or \/ + |_| Delta storm (after heavy finish) /\ + /\ |__| _ Ariel barrage (after ground slash hit) /\ + /\ + |_| |__| Sonic impact (after smash hit) /\ _ |__|, |_| Raging impact (after dash smash hit) /\ + /\ _ |__|, |_| Spiral slash (charageable) (immediately after jump smash hit) /\ |__| Auto smash counter /\ |__| (immediately after auto counter hit) Burst meteor (while attacking with Z burst) /\ _ |__|, |_| (All air combos are chargeable from the triangle button press.) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Air combo 1 |_| |_| |_| |_| /\, + /\ X, |_| |_| |_| |_| |__| _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Air combo 2 |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, /\, + /\ X, |_|, |_|, |_|,|_|, /\ |__|, |__| _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Air combo 3 |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, /\, + /\ X, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|,|_| |__|, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Air combo 4 |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, /\, + /\ X, /\ |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, /\ |__|, |__|, |__| (Must be in max power mode to use the following blast combos) Blast combo 1 /\ |__| Blast combo 3 /\ _ /\ |__|, |_|, |__| (while attacking opponent with Z burst) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Blast combo 4 |_|,|_|,|_|,|_| /\ + /\ X, |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, /\ /\ |__|, |__|, |__| _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Blast combo 5 |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, /\ + /\ X, /\ |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, /\ /\ |__|, |__|, |__|,|__| - - - - - - - - - - - - 5) Recommended Z items== - - - - - - - - - - - - You are very welcome to choose your own potara's to equip, here i've simply given a recomendation of how Chiaotzu should be equipped to make full use of his moves & abilities. Custom 1 A) Master Roshi's Training ------------------------------------ B) Attack up 2 ------------------------------------ C) Defense up 1 ------------------------------------ D) Super up 1 ------------------------------------ E) Rush blast 1 Chiaotzu's first custom setup revolves around first increasing his low health, this is done with Master Roshi's training potara which will boost his low health by 10,000. With that taken care of next in this setup his attack is increased, as is defense & the power of Chiaotzu's special moves. Finally rush blast 1 makes use of his ordinary Ki blasts making them faster and a little more powerful. Custom 2 A) King Kai's training ------------------------------------- B) Attack up 1 ------------------------------------- C) Defense up 1 ------------------------------------- D) Super up 1 ------------------------------------- Chiaotzu's next setup though costly, focuses on boosting his low health while giving more power to his defense while still increasing power to his special moves, the benefit here is the extra addition of more health for greater endurance & fighting performance. Custom 3 A) Eternal Life ------------------------------------- B) Combo master ------------------------------------- C) Attack up 1 ------------------------------------- D) Super up 1 The last of Chiaotzu's custom setups, will allow for his health to steadily be restored over the course of battle. Costly as it is, it allows for restoration of lost health with there being very few ways to recover it unless your character has a special move that can regenrate his/herself this instance being Chiaotzu he can't unfortunately. This setup is also at an advantage with Combo master as it will ensure Chiaoutzu's combo's deal greater damage, which on top of attack up 1 & super up 1 adds to the benefit of Chiaotzu becoming more of a threat toward the opponent/s Other Potara's you may find useful for Chiaotzu include: >- Active heart >- Rising fighting spirit >- Warrior's will >- Sparking plus >- Light body >- Proof of friendship >- Draconic aura - - - - - - - - - - - 6) Tips & stratergies== - - - - - - - - - - - > Telekinesis is an unblockable attack & will prevent your opponent from moving briefly, use this time wisely to launch a psychic rock throw or Dodon ray, be sure you use this in close quarters otherwise it will be a waste of your black stock at any other range. > Alternate your attack patterns with Chiaotzu's irregular attack pattern & don't allow your attacks to become readable otherwise you may well find yourself being countered & dragon smashed before the battle really begins... > During a rush attack, Chiaotzu can quickly use his throw to knock his opponent back granting the opportunity for an instant Dodon ray or a combo follow up using ordinary ki blasts & finishing up with a Z burst to add more mayhem to the combo! > The special move After image comes in handy in a brutal battle when it appears your opponent is gathering ki or about to unleash an energy wave, perform the technique to automatically teleport out of harms way. A forewarning that against area attacks such as Omega Shenron's blazing storm this technique won't get you out of the fray so use the move wisely. This move will also stack, for example you have 4 blast stock & you use the command twice, you will be able to automatically avoid damage up to two times! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 7) Chiaotzu's red potara password == - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Red Potara are special from ordinary potara, they grant super enhanced properties & cannot be obtained by normal means like your standard potara used to customize your fighters through evolution Z. In order to obtain the red potara you must "cheat" so to speak, go to the 'data centre' on the main menu & then input the following password: &hz9M bm3%2 pF+8W 7@ B)0BV p#YKv @0d9L 9* Now on the character select screen under password character you will have a Chiaotzu but not just any Chiaotzu oh no! This is a super Chiaotzu with stats pushed far beyond normal limits, have fun trashing any opponent with the Psychic emperor. I should also mention that you will only be able to use red potara characters in duel & ultimate battle modes, which does take a little of the fun out of it but it's another extra feature you can use to see Chiaotzu at his most powerful! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 8) Frequantly asked questions(getting to know you)== - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Q. Is it possible to beat Nappa in Dragon history with either Tien or Chiaotzu? A. (laughs) Yes actually, the reason I laugh is because i've done it myself many times. It takes a little patiance & frequant use of thier special moves, in Chiaotzu's case i find that Psychic rock throw works very well as Nappa usually sets himself up for the damage by aiming to counter or dragon smash you. Dispite Nappa being one of my favourite characters, it's funny to see him lose to either Tien or Chiaotzu... just a shame it didn't happen in the anime & manga eh?? Q. Oh wow!! so what actually happens when you defeat Nappa with either of them? A. Not a great deal to be honest, all you will see is a short scene with lamenting in their mighty victory & of course you have the satisfaction of saying you won a supposedly "impossible/difficult" battle ^_^ - - - - - - - - - - - - 9) Character quotes == - - - - - - - - - - - - Naturally as the title of this section implyies, this is a selection of Chiaotzu's voice quotes during the game:- > "Don't worry Tien, I can do it!" "My full power didn't work...?" (To Nappa) "Tien let's fight!" (To Tien) "You again!? You stink so stay away!" (To Guldo) "Oh ahh!! T-Tien help!!" (To General Tou) "I won't let you beat me this time!" (To Krillin) - - - - - - - - - - - 10) CreditZ == - - - - - - - - - - - ^ Massive thank you to spike & Akira Toriyama for creating the phenomenon that is DBZ! ^ You for reading & or taking an interest of any kind & keeping me in the industry. ^ My good buddy Nick Kazama who like me is a fellow DBZ fan, a dear friend, & supporter of my work, thank you dude! ^ Chiaotzu for always being in high spirits & always ready to rise to the challenge & defend the DBZ world! ^ All DBZ fans everywhere! feel absolutly free to e-mail me with any queries regarding Chiaotzu or just the game in general @ dbs_darkstar@hotmail.co.uk or alternatively visit www.myspace.com/danielpaulbyrne, i'd appreciate all direct quries to my e-mail address if you can, happy gaming (c) Copyright Backtrak 2008 All right reserved.
