Then, recopy your original file after deleting the used copy of your file. Repeat as many times as desired until all your fighters have breakthroughs. Note: An error might occur which prohibits you from copying Dragon Ball Z Budokai games if this is done excessively.

" Energy (Ki): move [C-stick] [Right]
Story mode replay
Once you have completed story mode once, you will notice that there are some people missing, except for Gohan as a super hero and Hercule who get unlocked in world championship mode. Go back to story mode and you will see what you have done instead of starting a new story. Some of the episodes will have "New" beside them. Go into those episodes to get new players and new player abilities, such as a Super Saiyan for Vegeta.

Tournament wins
At the start of the match, press [P]x3, [K]. This will knock your opponent into the air. Tap [Forward]x2 to fly up there, then press [P] to bash them down. If they do not fall out of the ring at first, bash them again.

Select any character (for example, Goku). Lure the opponent to the edge, get behind him, and try to knock him into the air. Before he falls, hit a Kamehameha and if you are in the correct position, it will knock him out.

To pick up a cheap win, play as Kid Gohan or Krillin. When you get matches with Recoome and other larger characters, most of their punches and kicks will not hit you.

Use this trick for a faster win in the world tournament level. You can do this with any character in the game. When you first start, it shows them posing and getting ready to fight, when the word "Ready?" appears, start pressing [Left]x2 or [Right]x2 quickly, depending on what side of screen you are on. Your opponent will start moving backwards closer to the edge of the ring. When the word "Fight!" appears, use the [P]x2 [K]x2 [E] move and they will go flying out of the ring. If you do not get the first punch, you are on your own.

If you are at the edge of the ring and your opponent is about to knock you off, do your character's grab technique. Oddly enough, every time you execute a throw in tournament mode, it sends you and your opponent straight back to the middle of the ring.

Keep pressing [Forward] + [R] until your opponent is out of the ring.

Use Teen Gohan (recommended), Goku, or Cell. Use kick combos to get them to the end of the ring, then use a Kamehameha or a few kicks or punches and they will fly out.

The easiest way to win advanced tournament is as follows. Go to change capsules, choose a character, and put Viral Heart Disease and Vaccine in the slots. Then, go to options and change story mode and duel mode to very easy. Set the timer to 30 seconds. When the battle begins, his health will start to decrease and keep doing so until a certain point. By then, time should almost be up and you should win.

This trick works for all characters. First, put on Viral Heart Disease and Vaccine. Then set the timer to 30 seconds and enter the tournament. As soon as the fight starts, shoot a Ki blast until your opponent reflects it back to knock you down. Hold [Down] and wait until the match is over. Repeat this to gain easy money.

Make a custom character that has Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D, any technique that takes up one slot, and either Rage!!! or Viral Heart Disease and Vaccine. Also, set the fight time in the options menu to 30. Just keep using that attack and you will defeat the opponent easily.

Taunting (press [P] + [K] + [G] + [E] ) will lower your opponent's Ki gauge by 1.

Attack boost
Add a Senzu Bean with Sayian Heritage. Your attack will be boosted after the Senzu Bean is used. A normal bean takes up 3.

Hold [B], then press [Back], [Back] and hold it down.

Easier combos
If you are doing a combo that your having trouble with (for example, the Super Kamahamaha ( [K]x2, [Right] + [K], [K], [E] ), hold the D-Pad and press the rest of the moves and it will put in the arrows. For example, hold [Right] and press [K]x2, [K]x2, [E].

Longer combo
If you put in two capsules with a description that reads "attacks with oppressive force", the move will last longer and have more hits than usual.

Put in two capsules with the description that reads "attacks with oppressive force" to a character, then add other attack enhancing capsules to make a one move death killer. Note: This is best if used on saiyans.

Extra Zenie
When you complete The Legend Of Hercule, the points you earn will be turned into Zenie.

If you get second place under the novice level you will get 5,000 Zenie. If you get first place, you will get 10,000 Zenie. If you get second place on the adept level, you will get 15,000 Zenie. If you get first you will get 20,000 Zenie. If you get second in the advanced level you will get 25,000 Zenie. If you get first, you will get 30,000 Zenie.

If you do not like the random choice of three characters that Shenron powers-up, restart the PlayStation2. All your Dragon Balls will still be there when the game is resumed. Summon Shenron again until you like the choice of the three random characters.

After you collect all seven Dragon Balls, Oolong will say "Show yourself Shenron". A dragon will appear and grant you a wish called "Breakthrough" for one character at a time. This capsule contains all the moves for the chosen person. Support capsules will not work with it. It requires seven slots. After all characters have breakthroughs, the Dragon Balls can be collected but the Dragon will not appear.

Get Dragon Balls quicker
Go to the Skill Shop and go down to the "Recommended" section. It will tell you what item it is. If it is not a Dragon Ball, exit and re-enter the shop again. The Recommended item will have changed. Keep repeating this until you see a Dragon Ball in the Recommended section. Make sure you have enough money, as each Dragon Ball costs 8,000 Zenie.

After you complete story mode, go back to it. Go to Saiyan Sage episode 3, Saiyan Attack. You will play as Piccolo. You will first face five Saibaimen. Defeat them. Next, you have to face Nappa. You will only have two thirds health though. Defeat Nappa. Return and do this again as many times as you desired. Every time you defeat Nappa the first time without losing, you will get a Dragon Ball capsule.

Go to the tournament and win a lot of Zenie. Then, go to Mr. Popo's shop and buy everything in the "Recommended" section. Eventually, you will acquire the maximum amount of every capsule (9) and force the CPU to give you nothing but Dragon Balls. This takes a lot of time, but eventually you will get every breakthrough and stack every character's capsules up to 9, making them as strong as possible.

Keep playing the tournament and get to the finals. Even if you do not win, you will get money and unlock a person and a new tournament. After you get 130,000 or more Zenie, go buy capsules but only the two bottom ones. Do not gamble too much.

Get Dragon Balls cheaper
If you do not care what kind of capsule you get, spend your zenie on the Gamble capsules. You may end up getting rare capsules for just 3000 zenie instead of buying them for different prices under "Recommended". You can also get Dragon Balls by gambling, and getting them 5000 zenie cheaper.

Adept Tournament Capsule
Play in Novice mode and become number one. Go to Mr. Popo's shop. You will see a gray Capsule for 8000 Zenie. It is Adept mode.

Advanced Tournament Capsule
Play in Adept mode and become number one. Go to Mr. Popo's shop. You will see a gray Capsule for 8000 Zenie. It is Advanced mode.

Frieza's Space Ship Capsule
Get 12,000 Zenie go to "Recommended" in Mr. Popo's shop. When you see Frieza's Space Ship. pay the 12,000 Zenie. This Capsule takes three spaces in Frieza's slot. When you die, Frieza's Space Ship appears and restores everything. It also transforms you into Cyber Frieza.

Play through the Namekian Saga under the hardest difficulty setting and defeat Frieza at all times without losing once. The Capsule at the end should be Frieza's Space Ship.

Gero's Perpetual Energy Capsule
To get unlimited energy, go to Mr. Popo's shop and go to the recommended section. Leave and return until Gero's Perpetual Energy appears. Every character can use it, but no transformations are allowed.

The Legend Of Hercule (Mr. Satan) Capsule
Unlock Hercule and go to the Mr. Popo's shop. Buy the "Advanced Tournament" Capsule and the one that appears next is "The Legend Of Hercule". It is a new fighting mode, where you recreate the events that the public believed happened during the "Cell Games Saga".

When you select Legend Of Hercule, make sure you have a Senzu Bean and custom Hercule. When you get to fight Goku, your health will not replenish when you fight Gohan and Cell.

Red Capsule
On world championship mode, if you win you get 10,000 Zenie and second place gets you 5,000 Zenie. This is useful because when you go to the shop and buy the Red Capsule, you will get some very good moves such as Super Saiyan Trunks, Kamahamaha for Krillen, and even Super Saiyan Level 2 for Gohan.

Super Trunks 2 Capsule
There is a capsule to get Super Trunks 2. It is stronger then Super Trunks and is very helpful when fighting in the tournaments. You can purchase this from Mr. Popo. The "Recommended" capsule section is the best place to find it. Exit in and out of the purchase screen and the recommended capsule should eventually appear as Super Trunks 2.

First, buy the Capsule for the Adept level for World Tournament mode. Then, complete the Adept level with Trunks. When you go in the Skill Shop, the Super Trunks 2 capsule will be there for you to buy at the bottom as a Recommended Capsule.

Trunks' Mystery Fiber Jacket Capsule
One of the rarest capsules in the game, this can be obtained by buying the recommended capsule at Mr. Popo's shop or by completing the Androids Saga episode: A New Threat.

Extra capsule slot
When selecting Capsules for any Saiyan, half Saiyan (except Saiyanman), or Cell, you can trick the CPU into giving you an extra slot. First, use four slots for anything, then use the 1/3 Sensu Bean and Saiyan Heritage. There should be an empty slot at seven. Next, replace the 1/3 Sensu Bean for a normal Bean. In effect, you will get a full Sensu Bean for two slots instead of three. You cannot trick the CPU into changing the new eighth slot into anything else.

Getting Capsules easier
Go to story mode after you finish it. Finish any desired level and you should get a Capsule. Although you cannot choose the Capsule that you get, you might get a new Capsule that you need.

In order to collect all the Capsules and even the Dragonballs without playing in World Tournament Mode consistently to attain the money for them, just continue to play story mode after you have unlocked all the chapters. You will continue to receive capsules each time you play, and sometimes even a free Dragonball. Eventually, you will have the maximum of every capsule and force the CPU to give you Dragonballs. To make it even more simple, find a chapter such as number 9 in the Namekian Saga (Raging Frieza) that gives you three Capsules each time you complete it. The only capsules you will ever have to buy in Mr. Popo's shop are the two World Tournament Capsules for Adept and Advanced, and The Legend of Hercule Capsule.

You may have already noticed that your character will be knocked out of his Super Saiyan Transformation when his Ki gauge goes anywhere below 3. By knowing this, you can determine several things in a battle. Note: Super Saiyan 2 Transformations also are knocked out at Ki gauge 3. Also, this has almost the same effect with Cell and Frieza's Forms.

For easier transformations, enter the options screen. Select the controller option then move over to "Custom". Hold [L] and press [Left] or [Right] until you see [P] + [K] + [G] (the transformation buttons). You will now have [L] as a transformation button. Note: You can do the same thing with taunts; just press [Left] or [Right] or left until you find P K G E.

Easy win
To easily defeat an opponent, go to "Edit Skills" and give your character a Viral Heart Disease Capsule and a Vaccine Capsule. The Vaccine Capsule negates the effects of the Viral Heart Disease Capsule on your player, and only your opponent will get their life drained.

Fight through the story mode and/or the tournament mode until you can get the Senzu Bean, Viral Heart Disease, Vaccine, and Kamehameha skills. Equip all four skills on Goku, Gohan, or Krillin. When you now fight in a duel, allow your opponent to knock your health down to zero. By this time, the Viral Heart Disease should have depleted his health down to half of the last bar. The Senzu Bean will replenish all of your health and energy. Finish off your opponent with a four-punch combo and a Kamehameha.

Go into the options menu and set "Difficulty" to "Very Easy", "Com" to "Very Weak", equip the Vaccine, Viral Heart Disease, and a Senzu Bean, Set the time limit to 30 seconds.. When the match starts, dodge for the first fifteen seconds. The last fifteen seconds should deplete your opponent's health. When the clock reaches zero, if you have not been knocked out of the ring, you will be declared the winner.

Choose a small-sized character, such as Krillin or Gohan. Equip him with Vaccine and Viral Heart Disease and set the tournament to last thirty seconds. When you enter the tournament with your custom character, the opponent's health will be going down. When the thirty seconds are up, you will win. This is a very easy way to get Great Sayiaman or money.

When fighting in any match, press "Guard" until your opponent tries to throw a punch or kick. Then, as quickly as possible, press [Punch]x3 then blast. Then, knock him or her down with a kick combo. When an opponent is charging up their energy, use this time to back away and be ready for them to charge at you.

Go to the options screen and turn the difficulty all the way down. Try to block as many punches as you can, let your opponent come to you. Try to think as the Z-fighters would. Do the basic attacks [Punch]x3, [Energy]. It knocks the other fighter down so you can gather Ki, or go in the fighters face and kill them; or knock them out of the ring.

At the start of the match, press [Punch]x3, [Kick]. This will knock your opponent into the air. Tap [Forward]x2 to fly up there, then press [Forward] to knock the opponent out of the ring. [Punch] also works, but [Forward] is stronger. If it does not work, try it again.

When doing a "death move" such as the Kamehameha, Buster Cannon, Destructive Wave, Photon Shot, Power Blitz, etc., press [Start] at the moment just before it explodes on your opponent. The move will cause more damage. This may require some practice.

Unlock Great Saiyaman, and use Justice Punch then Justice Kick.

To get an easy win with any character in tournament mode, equip him with Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D, Vaccine, Viral Heart Virus, a specialty move (such as Galick Gun , Kamehameha , Destructive Wave, or Warp Kamehameha). When you battle, your opponent's life will go down, but not yours, from the virus. Because you have the Perpetual Energy R&D, you can do your specialty move as many times as desired after a punch combo. Also, since your Ki is always maxed out, when you block it will not go down and you will not take damage.

This tactic may take some time to complete, but it is worth it. First, set the timer to 30 seconds. Next, select any character and customize him with a vest of any kind, Viral Heart Disease, and Vaccine. Enter the Advanced Martial Arts Tournament, select the character that you customized, and send him into battle. Once started, just let your opponent knock you down. When you are on the ground hold [Down] to stay there. The CPU will try to punch, kick, and do other moves, but will not hit you. You can stay on the ground and the time will run to zero. The heart problem will take care of your opponent. The opponent may hit you a few times, but it will hurt you very much, if any. You can win all the matches in about five minutes and get 50,000 zenie quickly. Repeat this to get more money.

Defeating Cell in Final Battle
When the battle starts, notice that you have one third of your health missing. Immediately hit Cell with a Super Kamehameha wave ( [Kick]x3, [Forward], [Kick], [Energy] ). This should knock out about half his health. Be careful, If you get too far ahead of Cell in health, he will turn into a killing machine. After the wave hits, get rid of the rest of Cell's life by doing punch combos.

Keep using physical attacks without using special moves. Eventually his guard will break and you will do more damage. This requires some practice, but you will eventually win.

Attack Cell with Spirit Bomb five times and he will be finished.

Attack Cell with Hercule's Present For You two to three times and he will be killed.

Defeating Cell in all forms
As soon as you start, back up. Your opponent should run attack. Jump back and [Kick]x3. Repeat this until all his health is depleted.

Legend of Hercule
Put a Sensu Bean on Hercule before you start. You will be revived, but only during the Goku, Gohan, and Cell fights. You will just die in the other battles.

Use Hercule's Present For You on each opponent twice and they should be killed.

Grassland level: Make a large bolder fall on enemy
When battling in practice or duel mode in the Grassland, you will notice two large boulders placed on opposite ends of the arena. Push your opponent towards them and get very close to the boulders. Do a combo move that ends with a power strike facing towards the boulder. You can also hold [Forward] and hold [R] for a few seconds to charge up a hit, then release, causing a power punch. This will cause the enemy to go flying into the boulder. You may have to move around to find the correct point to send them flying into. You will see a short intermission with the bolder breaking off of the mountain and falling on top of them. You can also do this to the other boulder on the opposite side of the arena. This will also give a smaller battling range once the boulder is removed. To do this again, just return to the arena. Note: This bolder does 500 damage to the opponent. Also, if you look closely at the mountain, you will notice there is a cracked portion. Slam them in the middle of the cracked portion and it should break off, doing 500 damage and falling on them.

Kami's Lookout level: Easy opponent damage
Get your opponent to the edge of the lookout, then do a strong attack. They will fall off and you will follow them down. This will take off about half their green life bar.

Restore life
To get life without going into the rejuvenation chamber on Namek, go up closely to the chamber without going in. You should see your life bar fill.

Destroying arenas
If you enter any battlefield with walls that touch against the field, push your opponent against the wall and do an Elbow Smash ( [Towards] + "Toward Hold " + [Punch] ) or some other hard hitting attack. Your opponent will be smashed into the wall, dealing the damage of the attack as well as an added bonus. This can also be done for higher walls and moves that will knock somebody outside of the ring.

To make an arena a smoldering crater, select a character with an Ultimate Move (for example Goku's Spirit Bomb or Trunks' Burning attack). Then, use the Ultimate Move. Note: You cannot destroy the World Tournament, Hyperbolic Time Chamber, or Kami's Lookout (when you are actually on the Lookout) arenas.

Go to versus or practice mode and choose a character that has an Ultimate Attack, such as Trunks or Frieza. Use it on a character and after the blast you should see that Planet Namek is almost about to blow up with lightning and tornadoes.

Use a powerful energy attack to turn any battle into a desert wasteland. The following attacks can do this: Perfect Cell's Spirit Bomb, Trunks' Burning Attack, Android #16's Hell Flash. Deathball and other attacks should also have the same effect.

To obliterate the Cell Games arena, choose either duel or practice mode (recommended). Play as Teen Gohan and press [Kick]x2, [Right], [Kick]x2 for the Super Kamehameha in Super Saiyan 2.

You actually can destroy Kami's lookout. Use a Spirit Bomb to turn it into a crater. When battling, equip a fire Ki Blast Wave capsule x2 to hit them with 16 hits. If you can equip a character with a Long Combo x2, it will do a 42 hit combo (only with Tien, Goku, Gohan, Trunks, and Cell).

Hidden area
You can destroy Kami's lookout with Goku's Spirit Bomb or Hercules' Present For You. After you destroy it, you will fight in an area with a lot of dirt and a few mountains.

On the island stage, hit your opponent into the rocks once or twice. They will shatter and you will fall into a cave-like stage with waterfalls in the background.

Field transformation
When playing as Trunks in practice mode, go to the grass land and use his burning attack. You will fight in a hole that Trunks made with his attack and the trees will be burned to a crisp.

Android 17 and Android 18: Extra damage with Power Blitz
When you do a Power Blitz close up, pause game play just before it hits your opponent. Resume the game and it will do up to a full bar of damage.

Android 17 and 18: Recommended skills
If you choose not to use, or do not have the Breakthrough Capsule for Android 17 and 18, these are a very good substitute. By giving them all these capsules, it will have every one of the attacks that come with their Breakthrough capsules except for Buster Swing (#17/18). This is not included because its main use is to cause damage if you have low Ki or to buy time to gain Ki. With Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D, #17/18 will never lose any Ki on any energy attack. You may want to experiment with switching out Power Strike with a Senzu Bean if desired.
Power Blitz (#17/18)
Energy Field (#17/18)
Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D
Power Falling Star (#17/18)
Power Strike (#17/18)
Captain Ginyu: Easy win
Put Captain Ginyu on "Custom", and choose him with the Body Change and Super Kami Water capsules on. At the start, your health will decrease. Then, change bodies and you will see your opponent's health decreasing. Rarely, your opponent will change bodies back and your health will still decrease.

Cell: Recommended skills
Second Form
Perfect Form
Spirit Bomb (Cell)
Improved Special Clothing (or Andriod Barrier)
2/3 Senzu Bean
Cell: Easy tournament win
At the beginning, go towards your opponent then hold [Forward] and keep tapping [Punch]. You will eventually knock them back. Run to them, and when they get up, either do it again or hold [Forward] and keep pressing [Kick] to get a ring out. This will work if they do not block. If they block, then block them until you think you can punch them then do the punch or kick combo. If you have Viral Heart Disease and Vaccine, customize him with them. If you cannot get a ring out, then you will at least defeat them with a K.O.

Freiza: Recommended skills

Another way to get a high attack with Goku is as follows:

Another set-up is as follows:
Warp Kamehameha x2
Kamehameha x2
Viral heart Disease

Go to "Edit Skills" and give Goku Warp Kamameha and any other desired skills. Then, when you pick your character, choose custom Goku. When the match starts, use Warp Kamameha. When your opponent is down, recharge your Ki (press [X] + [Away]x2 and hold). Repeat the process and you should win with three or four Warp Kamamehas.

When playing as Goku in tournament mode, equip him with power-up moves/items and two Warp Kamehameha. It should do a full life bar of damage.

Goku 80-hit combo
Go to practice mode and select Goku vs. Yamcha. Get Yamcha to the top of the level by pressing [K], [K], [Back], [K]. Goku should kick twice, then follow with an upward kick. Once you do this several times you should be at the highest point. The only way to tell is when Yamcha falls backwards then floats. When he falls, hold [Forward] and tap [P] (but not too fast). By the time Yamcha hits the ground, you should have gotten 80 hits. Goku may also get 40 hits when he is equipped with two Super Dragon Fists.

Hercule: Easy tournament win
Get your opponent near the edge and use Dynamite Kick. The last kick should knock him out.

This trick requires High Tension and Hercule's special and works on any level in tournament mode. First, push your opponent back with punches until you get them about five feet away from the edge. By then, you should have enough to power up to High Tension. As soon as you get the chance, execute Hercule's special. The move will make Hercule drop his exploding device and launch him straight at the opponent, which should knock them out of the ring. If not, you can pick up from there; since the attack takes off at least one bar of health, you can just beat them instead. Another to win instead of using the Hercule special, do the same steps as in the first part of the strategy, then push your opponent to the end of the ring with punches. Then, do the Dynamite Kick. If you are not too close to the edge, it will knock the opponent out. However, if you are too close, the move will change or turn a different direction when it is being performed.

Hercule: Easy win
When the match starts, use Present For You. When your opponent is down, recharge your Ki. Do not turn to Super Saiyan as this will make your Ki decrease slowly. Repeat the process three or four times and you will win.

Use the following trick to win in advanced tournament mode. Before the fight starts (when you can see yourself and your opponent), move towards them and press [Punch] very fast. You will get a slight edge by punching the opposition early. Punch four times then press [Energy] (Dynamite Kick). Hercule will jump up, do a kick move, and then do a big kick and knock the opponent back on the ground. Run up and do the Dynamite Kick as many times as needed to kick them back and out of the ring. Note: When you knock them back the first time, you can knock them out easily by pressing the D-Pad towards them twice, and on the second time, hold it. You will jump in the air and fly very fast towards them. Then, by either pressing [Kick] , [R], or [Punch], it will hit them (with some timing) out of the ring.

Hercule: Recommended skills

Teen Gohan: 41-hit combo

Trunks: Recommended skills
The strongest possible move in the game will take away 2999 points of damage. Each character starts off with 3000 points of life. In order to do this give Trunks:
Super Saiyan
Burning Attack
Burning Attack
Super Kami Water
Mixed Blood Power
Once in a fight, use his Burning Attack. It will leave your opponent with 1 point of life. Just one more hit and they are done.

Trunks: Easy tournament win
For a ring out, use [Punch]x2, [Kick]x2 to knock your opponent close to the edge of the ring. Next, use a series of kicks, or [Punch], [Kick] to knock them out. For a knock out, once you get Super Trunks, Super Trunks2, and Super Saiyan, this will be easy. At the start of the match, turn Super Saiyan instantly. Every second counts. Gather your energy by powering up or repeatedly attacking your opponent. Launch a Burning Attack. Doing this should weaken him. You can then avoid losing by staying away from the edge and knocking your opponent's lights out. Also, once you get Dr. Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D move, equip Trunks with it. Then, have two Burning Attacks, a Finish Buster, and a Senzu Bean. If you have any more slots, equip as them as desired. Then, once the match begins, you can have nonstop Burning Attacks until your opponent is defeated. Note: With this move, transformation is impossible. All the special moves listed can be bought at Mr. Popo's skill shop.

At the start of the battle use Trunks' grab attack. He will get them close to the outer edge of the ring. While they are getting up, tap [Forward]x2 to dash to them. After they are up, use Trunks' kick combo ( [Y] a few times) until he does a roundhouse kick to knock them out of the ring. If this does not work, as when your opponent counters your kicks), keep trying.

Vegeta: Recommended skills
Saiyan Heritage
Senzu Bean
Super Saiyan (for Vegeta)
Super Sayian 2 (for Vegeta)
Big Bang Attack (for Vegeta)
Customize Vegeta with those skills and when done, at the screen where you choose your fighter, select Vegeta then "Custom". When the "Battle" message appears, try to power up Vegeta to level 5. Then go Super Saiyan 2 and press [Forward] + [Punch], [Punch], [Punch], [Kick], "Ki Blast". This will start Vegeta's Big Bang Attack, which will take away two thirds of your opponent's health. Do not worry about losing, because the Saiyan Heritage and Senzu Bean will raise both your health and Ki fully.

Use the following skills:
Super Sayian
Big Bang Attack x2
Sayian Spirit
Super Kami Water
Go into practice mode and once his attack goes to 210%, use the Big Bang Attack and it will instantly do an overkill. Note: You must get in the full combo.

Vegeta: Easy tournament win
Do Final Flash, then run up to your opponent and press [Kick]. Then, do a kick combo.

Choose normal Vegeta at the character selection screen. When the match starts, use Final Flash. When your opponent is down, recharge your Ki. Do not turn to Super Saiyan as this will make your Ki decrease slowly. Repeat the process three or four times and you will win.

Yamcha: Easy tournament win
To easily win a tournament, select Yamcha as your fighter. As soon as the battle begins, use the Wolf's Fang Fist (making sure the opponent does not block the four punches; if so do not use the move and just block until a chance is given). The seventh hit will knock your opponent into the air and the final attack should hit the opponent out of the ring. If the opponent does not go out, knock him back near the edge then use the Wolf's Fang Fist (once again making sure that they do not block the four punches).

Yamcha: Wolf Fang Fist
After performing the [Punch]x4, [Energy], you can continue to press [Energy] up to seven more times and get more hits than just the normal four. This will also increase the damage to the opponent.

Dr. Brief's throws a bomb
In the "Edit Skills" screen, go to change capsules. Select one of the androids and wait. Look at Dr. Briefs to see him throwing capsule boxes. Watch carefully and you will see him throw a bomb.

Increased damage
If you equip two of the same ability, you will do a lot more damage. For example, if playing as Vegeta use the following: Final Flash x2, Big Bang Attack x2, Super Sayian, Super Vegeta, 1/3 Senzu Bean. Your attack for Final Flash and Big Bang will be higher.

Real voice after transformation
A character's voice will remain the same, even after transformations. Do a special attack to hear their real voice, such as Perfect Cell's Spirit Bomb.

More authentic dialog at beginning of the fight
To have dialog that has to do with story mode or the series Dragon Ball Z, pair these two fighters together: Krillin and Android #18, Frieza and Goku, Vegeta and Goku, Android #16 and Goku, and Trunks and either Androids #17 or Android #18, Piccolo and Teen Gohan. If you pair these fighters as indicated, you will hear different dialog pertaining to the story mode, or the relation between the characters. Certain character pairs may also have different dialog at the end of the fight. Note: Great Saiyaman always says the same thing no matter what, but it always has to do with "Justice" or "Evil".

This trick requires two memory cards. To play a game of tennis, customize two characters with Gero's Auto-Deflect Back capsule. Select them both and go to a duel. Have them both on "Custom". Back up so that you as far away as possible, or for a greater challenge get closer. Have one of the players shoot a blast. Deflect it back to each other repeatedly, and continue as long as possible.

CPU counters
if you guard most of the time, the CPU will eventually do a Power Punch or Power Kick.

Double K.O.
When in tournament mode with both you and your opponent have low life and both of you kill yourself, the game will announce a Double K.O. and both of you will lose.

Higher combos
To make someone's hits higher, just add any move on to them that has a description of "Attack with oppressive force". Then, add whatever else you want to the character. It is recommended that this be done to Kid Gohan or Teen Gohan because their attack can get at least forty hits.

Select a fighter that shoots out quick Ki blasts. Then, put Gero's Perpetual Energy on that person and go to practice. Choose a fight against a big opponent (such as Dodoria or Android #16). Knock them down with an attack (such as Kamehameha or Buster Cannon), then keep using Ki blasts very quickly for a long time. The damage and hits will go up.
