    Rotate the Right Analog-stick to spin Master Roshi. Press the Left Analog-stick to change his position on the screen.

    When the loading screen appears and you see Master Roshi on a hover disc, quickly rotate the Right Analog-stick to control the speed and the Left Analog-stick to control the movement. Roshi can only move sideways.

    When you see Master Roshi spinning in the opening/loading screen, you can press R1, R2, L1, L2 instead to spin him You can still control him with the Left Analog-stick. Note: This does not work when you perform a special move such as Continuous Kamehameha.

    Use the following trick to make Master Roshi fly. Note: It requires a controller with an auto-fire features. Set the auto-fire to L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 and use it to make Master Roshi spin fast enough to fly. You can also move him around with the Left Analog-stick.

  • Easy characters

    To unlock the characters easily, try to complete the Dragon World (the real game). About every time you defeat a character, you will unlock the person that you were battling against.

  • Easy capsules

    Enter Bulma's Shop. Do not buy anything. Leave and press L1 + L2 + R1 + R2. Do this a few times until your percentage begins to increase. Note: You must have auto-save enabled. Also, to get a capsule without paying, go to the skill shop, hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 and press Triangle to exit. You will get a capsule each time you exit.

  • Easy transformation

    Instead of having to press the P + K + G, press R1 + R2 to transform. This works with all characters who transform in any way. This can be very useful if you want to knock the guard off your opponent while standing next to them.

  • Easy wins

    Get a Viral Heart Disease Skill and put it on for support. Then, get a Vaccine to not make your Power decrease, but your opponent's will. Just block until their health is in the orange. You should now be able to defeat them. Also when you initiate Burst mode in battle, instead of just randomly pressing buttons (as the game suggests), use the palm of your hand to rotate both Analog-sticks either clockwise or counter-clockwise, depending on which is more comfortable for you. Note: For optimal performance, use your dominant hand (if you are right-handed, use your right hand; and if left-handed, use your left).

  • Picking up a Dragon Ball

    To pick up a Dragon Ball after it is in the center of the Dragon Ball Radar, just select the character that is on top of the Dragon Ball and press Square.

  • Switching to Goten or Kid Trunks in a duel

    Equip Goten or Kid Trunks with the Fusion. While you are fighting, press P + K + G (Triangle + Square + X). You will have all of their moves as if you chose that character at the start. Note: No transformation is possible.

  • Easy unlocks with Yamcha

    Play Stage 3 of Babidi's Spaceship with Yamcha only using Wolf Fang Fist to unlock Dabura, Majin, Super and Kid Buu along with some of their moves much faster than if someone else was used.

  • Charge special faster

    When charging up for a special, hold X to charge faster. This the only way to get Majin Vegeta's Final Explosion move without getting destroyed.

  • Continuous and fast Kamehameha meter

    Turn you controller vertically and place your hand over both Analog sticks. Rotate them both with your hand.

  • Dragon Ball GT reference

    After the stage where Vegeta get s taken over by Babidi, Freeza and Cell come back to life. This happens in Dragon Ball GT.

  • Dragon Ball Z Budokai reference

    When fighting Kid Buu in Dragon World mode, when he does the vanishing drop technique it is exactly the same as the Missing Screw move that Zarbon used in the original Dragon Ball Z: Budokai.

  • Defeating Kid Buu

    Play as Goten or Kid Trunks. Have them be Super Saiyan and have two capsules of Kamehameha or Buster Cannon. Also get a quick fire type move such as Continuous Kamehameha (if Trunks has one). This works well because if you are tall (like Goku), you will kick over Buu's head.
