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:- Jeice - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - (Note:Character profile is taken from the character reference) Jeice is a member of Frieza's elite fighting unit, the Ginyu force. Sporting handsome facial features with a ruddy face & long white hair, he is perhaps the most vain member of the Ginyu force (which is saying alot). Having being summoned by Frieza to aid in the search for the Namekian Dragon Balls, Jeice and his partner Burter enter in to battle with Goku. Jeice performs a special attack, the "Crusher Ball", which he utilizes when performing the "Purple Comet Flash" attack with Burter. - - - - - - - - - - - 3) Why choose Jeice? - - - - - - - - - - - Jeice is yet another member of the Ginyu force, who also happens to be best friends with his fellow team mate Burter. While slightly flamboyant in appearance Jiece is a powerful adversery & is the second strongest in the Ginyu force. Jiece has a massive combo potential & while unlike Burter who is amazingly fast he isn't incredibly speedy however having said that he's not incredibly slow either & can inflict more than adequete damage to most opponents in the game. Jeice is most definately at his very best when in close combat & as such has many moves that are best used at that proximity. >->->->->->->->->->-> 4) Jeice's Move list >->->->->->->->->->-> ______________ Special moves | ______________| _ Key:|_|= square button /\ = Triangle button O= Circle button /\= Up (d-pad) |__| \/= Down(d-pad) Ki/blast required Command Explosive wave: 1 level blast stock L2 + O SP fighting pose 4: 2 levels blast stock L2 + /\ + O Full power energy wave: 3 levels Ki gauge L2 + Triangle Crusher ball: 3 levels Ki gauge L2 + /\ + /\ |__| Purple comet attack: 5 levels Ki gauge L2 + \/ + /\ (max power) |__| ____________ Rush combos | ____________| _ Key: |_| = Square button /\ = Triangle button X= x button |__| Command/s Damage Hits _ |_| 290 1 _ _ |_|, |_| 580 2 _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_| 870 3 _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 1270 4 _ _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 1820 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_|, |_| 2200 6 Ki blasts ___________ Damage Hits /\ 310 1 |__| (chargeable) /\ /\ 620 2 |__|, |__| (chargeable) /\ /\ /\ 930 3 |__|, |__|, |__| (chargeable) 1240 4 /\ /\ /\ /\ |__|, |__|, |__|, |__| (chargeable) 1550 5 /\ /\ /\ /\ /\ |__|, |__|, |__|, |__|, |__| (chargeable) Throw ________ X, X 1050 Damage __________________ Rushing technique | __________________| _ Heavy finish (chargeable) |_|, /\ |__| _ _ Flying kick |_|,|_|, /\ |__| _ _ _ Heavy finish (Chargeable) |_|,|_|,|_|, /\ |__| _ _ _ Heavy finish (Chargeable) |_|,|_|,|_|, /\ |__| Lift strike (chargeable) (during rush) /\ /\ + |__| Ground slash (chargeable) (during rush) \/ + /\ |__| Body strike (during rush) o button ____________________ Signature technique| ___________________| _ Key |_|= Square button /\ = Triangle button X= x button O= circle button |__| /\= up(d-pad) \/= Down(d-pad) <- = Left(d-pad) -> = Right(d-pad) Sway flying kick X, /\ |__| Sway lift strike X, /\ + /\ |__| Sway ground slash X, \/ + /\ |__| Step in sway X, O _ Dragon smash X (/\, \/, <-, or -> +) |_| (After full power smash hits) Vanishing attack /\, \/, <-, or -> + /\ |__| (After full power smash hits) Lightning attack O (After full power smash hits) Sonic sway O + /\ |__| (immediately before rush attack hits) Sonic sway attack /\ |__| (immediately after sonic sway) High speed rush movement (During rush) /\, \/, <-, or -> + O Counter-high speed rush movement O (while opponent is in high speed rush) Z counter O (immediately after vanishing attack) _ Z counter /\ + |_| (immediately before rush attack hits) Counter- Z counter O (immediately before Z counter hits) _ Burst smash /\, \/, <-, or -> + |_| (While attacking with Z burst attack) _ Hyper smash (Chargeable) /\, \/, <-, or -> + |_| (Max Power) _________ Combo | _________| _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Rush finish |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_| _ _ _ _ _ Rush in |_|, |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|, X _ _ _ _ _ _ Rush in attack |_|,|_|,|_|,|_|,|_| /\ or \/ + |_| Delta storm /\ + /\ |__| Arial barrage /\ + /\ _ |__| |_| Sonic impact (After dash smash hits) /\ _ |__|, |_| Raging impact(After dash smash hits) \/ + /\ _ |__| |_| Spiral slash (Chargeable) /\ |__| Auto-smash counter (Immediately after auto counter hits) /\ |__| _ Burst meteor(While in Z burst) |_|, /\ |__| _ Violent rush- rapidly pressing of |_| button in max power mode (All air combos are also 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 perform the following blast combos) Blast combo 1 /\ |__| _ Blast combo 3 (While attacking 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 Jeice should be equipped to make full use of his moves & abilities. Custom 1 A) Attack up 2 ------------------------------------ B) Master Roshi's training ------------------------------------ C) Active heart ------------------------------------ D) Hatred of Sayians ------------------------------------ E) Evil Pride This custom setup will allow Jiece to increase his mediocre attack power slightly while boosting the rate at which Ki is recovered whilst a rush attack is successfully landed on an opponent, the other benefit comes from Master Roshi's training which boosts Jeice's initial health by 10,000. The Final two benefits, the first being Hatred of Sayians allows for a steady Ki recovery which in actual fact is amazingly fast! you will have greater chance to fully utilize your special moves on top of charging your Ki manually with the L2 button, lastly the Evil Pride potara will allow you to half damage while guarding (O button). This setup is a favourite & great for giving Jeice new fighting potential! Custom 2 A) Attack up 3 ------------------------------------- B) Master Roshi's training ------------------------------------- C) Rising fighting spirit ------------------------------------- D) Mirage The next setup will focus more on increasing Jeice's attack power while also keeping his health boosted thanks to Mater Roshi's training, Rising fighting spirit allows Jeice to start all his battles in max power mode, yes max power mode so cream those who oppose you with the first blow! lastly Mirage allows you to dodge all barrage type energy attacks (such as Coolers Finger Blitz barrage) providing you use rapid movement (teleport) at the right moment to dodge the first one thus allowing you to dodge them all allowing for a speedy counter attack & an opening in your opponents method of attack. Custom 3 A) Ki power up 2 ------------------------------------- B) Defence up 1 ------------------------------------- C) Attack up 1 ------------------------------------- D) Hatred of Sayians ------------------------------------- E) Master Roshi's training This setup is by far the most balanced you are going to get for Jeice in Tenkaichi 3,it allows for an increase in his pretty average defence while boosting his attack power & thanks to his Hatred of Sayians potara he can have his Ki gauge increase on it's own not having to worry much about charging Ki every so often during combat, his Ki power all the while being boosted. Lastly he retains a boost of 10,000 health thanks to the Master Roshi's training potara, a good option for a beginner wanting to get to better utilize Jiece's style of combat. Other Potara's you may find useful for Jiece include: >- Combo master >- Rush blast 1 >- Rush blast 2 >- Rush blast 3 >- King Kai's training - - - - - - - - - - - 6) Tips & stratergies== - - - - - - - - - - - > Jeice's explosive wave is an excellent way of repelling those pesky rush attacks, the moment your opponent uses one & closes in on you, perform explosive wave to prevent the attack & knock them backwards for an advantage! > Like his parner Burter, Jiece has a speed advantage over most opponents, carefully read your opponents attacks & try to go for a sonic sway to gain the advantage & slaughter them with your speed! > Pay attention to your blast stock & when it hits 2 or when it is required use SP fighting pose 4 to raise your Ki gauge instantly to max power mode & overwhelm the opponent, beware of the distance when you perform this as Jiece will be vunrable to attack for a brief moment. > Jeice's Violent rush (when in max power mode) allows for as many hits (providing the enemy doesn't get the chance to guard) as you can land whilst you are in max power mode, this can cause massive damage & especially if you manage to attack your opponent from behind. Futhermore, when you follow the violent rush up with a 'crusher ball' or even the 'purple comet attack' can lead damage well beyond 25,000!! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 7) Jeice'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: 4S@%D -XbNF #f)DT sC CzkLX T+fFX K0yjM VL Now on the character select screen under password character you will have a Jeice, but not just any Jeice oh no! This is a super Jeice with stats pushed far beyond normal limits, have fun trashing any opponent with Captain Ginyu's first mate! 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 Jeice at his most powerful! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 8) Frequantly asked questions(getting to know you)== - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Q. Who is Jeice, were are his origins? A. Jeice joined the Ginyu Force after losing to his rival Salza, the battle in question was over who would join the Armoured squad (Cooler's elite fighting unit) with the loser having to settle for the Ginyu Force (Frieza's elite fighting unit.) Jiece lost to Salza, much to his anger he joined the Ginyu Force becoming 2nd in command to Captain Ginyu. It is a less known fact that Jeice & Salza are from the same star system however this & Jeice's rivalry with Salza are only mentioned in the manga & not the anime. - - - - - - - - - - - - 9) Character quotes == - - - - - - - - - - - - "Feel the power of the Ginyu force! JEICE!!" "Don't play stupid with me-" "Let's rock it!!" "Crusher ball!" "You should know not to tangle with the Ginyu force!" "You think it'll turn out better this time?! yeah right!" (to Burter) " Oh... so you get to decide who gets to be no.2 huh?" (to Guldo) " Captn' Ginyu's first mate...JEICE!!" " Oooh! Fantastic!" (to Captain Ginyu) " Heh heh heh you shouldnt've underestimated me captn'!" (to captain Ginyu) " We're gunna settle this once & for all!!" (to Salza) - - - - - - - - - - - 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 ^ My good buddy Nick Kazama who like me is a fellow DBZ fan, a dear friend, & supporter of my work, thank you dude! ^ Jiece for being an interesting yet esentric & cool character who i've enjoyed both writing for & playing as. ^ All DBZ fans everywhere!
