  • Energy Drain

    If you have trouble beating opponents in any of the World Tournaments I stumbled onto some help for you. If you have already played thru the regular game with Goku and have faced Android 19 and the Virual Heart Saga this should work for you. Here how its works if you have the Virula Heart Disease Capsule and the Vaccine Capsule equipped them in the edit skills box and any other moves you have or want. Then when you select your character make sure you select custom. As the match begins you will notice the enemy you are fighting will lose energy. As you continue to fight and hit him with attacks the enemy will lose energy very rapidly. Easier kills for those hard to beat folks in the game. The only person I had to watch out for was Captain Ginyu and his body switch. This works because the computer doesn't have the vaccine equipped so it just drains the energy from the character as you fight.

  • Power Up

    Want to know how to power up? Well I can tell you. Hold X down and press the back arrow twice ( note the second time you have to hold the back arrow as well as X )and you should see your guy's kai gauge going up ( it only goes up to 6 or 7 )you also should see a glowing ring thing around your guy.

  • Better ''Blaze Zone'' Controls

    If you've played D.B.Z.budokai1 there is something called ''Blaze Zone'' .When you fight really fast like in the show. In the begging of ''Story Mode' it tells you to press guard, punch, and kick really fast. And that's kind of hard. So instead of that move both analog sticks or just the right one to fight faster and win

  • Goku Killer Strategy

    This is probably the best strategy for Goku I have found, and its my favorite. Okay, This is what you do, go to Mr. Popo's shop and buy 2 warp kamehamehas or 1 if you already have one, then buy another kamehameha (Goku) and then you buy the green capsule labeled Geros perpetual energy machine or something with the name Geros pepetual..., note: this is a rare skill and can only be found once you have, from my point of view, all characters and you have beaten all of story mode. Once you have that, go to customize characters, select Goku, remove everything from him, then put in the 2 kamehamehas and the 2 warp kamahamehas ad finally Geros perpetual energy machine. This will enable Goku to have unlimited energy and the doubles of the kamehamehas and warp kamehamehas make them twice as strong.

  • Great Strategy

    This is one of my best and favorite strategies to win in duel mode against the computer or your friend. Select Captain Ginyu as your character. Once you start the match, don't fight back. Wait until you only have about half of your yellow meter left, then do Captain Ginyu's body switch (right+square,square,triangle,circle). Your opponent should gain your low health and body and you should get their high health and body. Then all you have to do is finish them off with their own special move (Press Start then go to Skills Sheet).

  • Easy Way To Win Tournament Mode

    All you have to do is pick Captain Ginyu in tournament mode. Don't do anything and when you are in the red life bar use his body switch technique.

  • Easy Way to Knock Your Opponent Out Of the Ring

    Ok. For this hint you can use any character that you want. Go to world tournament and chose the difficulty (novice, adept, advanced). Then chose your character( you can have him wear a different outfit if you chose him and normal or custom with the Y button and then hitting the A button after you have chosen). You will be placed with an opponent. When you start the match try to get as far away from your opponent as possible and charge up your Ki so that you can transform into a stronger and faster character (Goku-Super Saiyan). Next let your opponent knock you to the edge of the ring but don't get to close or he might knock you out of the ring. As quickly as you can hit down or up B together to spin around your opponent. This maneuver should leave him wide open for an un-blockable punch (the R button). You can hold down the R button in case he follows you and tries to block so you can really hit him hard. This maneuver should work so use it repeatedly and you should win the tournament.

  • Awsome Strategy

    If you want to make a lot of money in the world tournaments, first finish story mode and get the viral heart disease, then put it on your custom character's skills list with the vaccine along with it (make sure you buy the vaccine at Mr.Popo's shop). Also make the time in world tournament 30 seconds, and just keep dodging your opponents attacks by holding down guard and tapping up or down. Use the dodge technique to help stay away from the edge of the ring and dodge punches and kicks. This is a really awesome strategy trust me it works really well.

  • Transformation Trick

    If your at a transformation (Gokus King Kai Fist times 10) and you get knocked down and you are below the ki level you transform back to normal but if your a character with multiple transformations (Cell, Frieza, Goku)
    you go back to the previous one, take Cell perfect Form and you get knocked down below the Ki level you'll be at 2nd stage. this works on all characters with multiple transformations

  • To Get Mecha Frieza

    Ok Mecha Frieza is kind of hard to get but it's worth it! First of course u have to have Frieza (play through namek saga at any level). Second you have to have 12,000 zenie. What you do is go to Mr. Popo's skill shop and go down to the recommended capsule and check if there is a support skill called "Freiza's Spaceship" if it's not there then leave the skill shop and go back in and check again. You'll probably have to do this a lot (I did). Once you check and it is there then buy it. It can only be used by Freiza (duh). If you give your custom Freiza this skill it takes up 4 spaces on your skill sheet, but it's worth it because once Freiza reaches 0 health the spaceship will come and beam him up. He will then fly back down with full health, max Ki, and he will be Mecha Freiza. He fights as if he was freiza in his final form (he can do Death Ball) but he looks a lot cooler
