1) Introduction
- - - - - - - -

The legendary Z fighters & the most evil of villans in the galaxy return in 
spike's latest creation in the Tenkaichi series, Dragon Ball Z Budokai 
Tenkaichi 3 on the ps2. 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:- Fasha
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

(Note:Character profile is taken from the character reference libary)


Fasha is a lower-class Saiyan female fighter, and she is the only woman on
Bardock's planet elite force. She is violent and has peevish behaviour which
might be because she is of Saiyan descent.

After conquering Planet Kanassa with Bardock, she goes on a mission to
Planet Meat with the other team members. However, in Frieza's betrayal,
she meets and is killed by Dodoria and his gang.

Female Saiyans are very rare. In the manga not one appears, and in the anime
hardly any appear except for Fasha.

3) Why choose Fasha?
- - - - - - - - - - -

Fasha is yet another female to this edition of DBZ games, she also hasn't 
failed in her first appearance as a playable character to make an impact!
Simply by apperance their is an aura of complete awesome about Fasha, she's
a female but not just any female oh no she's a female Saiyan!! Fasha has a
tail like all other Saiyans have from birth, & she can use it to transform
in to her Great Ape form to give her opponent/s a real good clobbering!
Speaking of clobbering, even without Fasha transforming she can clobber
virtually any opponent with her rapid & relentless style of fighting &
what's more she has great attack power & also good defensive power from her
initial stats. Of all the Saiyans that can tranform in to a Great Ape (Izaru)
Fasha is most likley the best & most unique in that she has several unique 
moves in her Izaru form that deal devestating damage

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 Fasha should be equipped to make full use of
her moves & abilities.



Custom 1

A) Combo master
------------------------------------
B) Warrior's will
------------------------------------
C) Master Roshi's training
------------------------------------
D) Attack up 2
------------------------------------
E) Defense up 1

Here we improve Fasha by using Master Roshi's training to increase her health
by 10,000, next with this set up Fasha gains a good increase in attack power
& her defence increases slightly, Warrior's will allows Fasha to only take
half the damage she normally would when she guards against normal Ki blasts,
& non unblockable energy blasts. The combo master potara is for increasing the
power of Fasha's combos & rushes, working well to make her a far more 
formidible opponent & threat to just about any other character.







Custom 2

A) King Kai's Training
-------------------------------------
B) Defense up 1
-------------------------------------
C) Attack up 1
-------------------------------------
D) Super up 1
-------------------------------------

Fasha gets a massive boost of health here, 20,000 to be exact! Though it's
a costly potara & will limit your slots you have just enough to up Fasha's
defense, attack, & the power of her special moves, think of it as a more
balanced tuned setup to the first one above. Few characters actually need
to have King Kai's training but it will benefit Fasha greatly if you are
a skillful player & can preserve health & perform effective high speed 
movements to put the pressure on to your opponent!







Custom 3

A) Attack up 2
-------------------------------------
B) Super up 2 
-------------------------------------
C) Rush blast 2
-------------------------------------
D) Defence up 1

This final setup greatly boosts Fasha's attack power & the power of her 
special moves, her defense is still stable & her normal Ki blasts are now 
stronger & faster than they were before due to rush blast 2, Fasha has 
accounted for several potential weak spots with this setup & it offers a
pretty balanced mix of potara without wasting Fasha's ability limit, you may
have already noticed that the game does possess alot of very costly potara
& often it's difficult to find the proper or more suitable potara whilst
they are at the right cost for your empty slots.



Other Potara's you may find useful for Fasha include:

>- Style of the strong

>- Rising fighting spirit

>- Warrior lineage

>- Mind breaker

>- Mirage

>- Draconic aura

>- Light body






- - - - - - - - - - -
6) Tips & stratergies==
- - - - - - - - - - -

> Use Saiyan soul to increase Fasha's attack power, be sure to put some 
  distance between you & your opponent so this move can take proper effect
  & avoid giving your opponent they opening they need to attack or charge 
  vital Ki. 



- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
7) Fasha'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:
   
csn-c 3)C5J r)z(f 4t
fV?gQ W0T!y VblDs #f

Now on the character select screen under password character you will have
a Fasha, but not just any Fasha oh no! This is a super Fasha with stats
pushed far beyond normal limits, have fun trashing any opponent with the 
hysteric female Saiyan warrior!

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 Fasha at her most powerful!

8) Frequantly asked questions(getting to know you)==
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
 
   Q.Is Fasha Goku's mother?
   
   A. This a question asked time & again & naturally for good reasons, as
      there is evidance to suggest potentially that Fasha is Goku's Mother,
      however i choose to dibelieve this theory due to the other numerous
      factors & information given throughout the game, for example: first off
      Fasha is one of the friends of Bardock, second later in the game in the
      'what if?' saga, there is a fight with Bardock & the rebelling Saiyans
      & as the fight progresses Fasha will come to fight Zarbon (Frieza's 
      right hand man or monster, take your pick..) if you manage to defeat 
      Zarbon while a little difficult to achieve, Fasha will mention to 
      Bardock about his son indicating she couldn't possibly be the Mother of
      Goku, the mystery continues...  




- - - - - - - - - - - -
9) Character quotes   ==
- - - - - - - - - - - -

Naturally as the title of this section implyies, this is a selection of 
Fasha's voice quotes during the game:-
    
> "You can't run!"

  " I'll show you the pride of a Saiyan!!"

  "I'll enjoy this..."
