When you start the game and “Press Start” appears, remain idle and a FMV sequence will start. When the title screen appears, the background will be different. There are three or four different backgrounds. Besides the four backgrounds in the startup menu, and two different start up title songs, there is the normal background that has the actual Dragon Ball Z title screen from the show. There is also one that has to do with each main villain played against in the game.
Alternate level appearance
Press Square instead of X when selecting the Cell Ring, Valley, and other levels for a different appearance. In the alternate Cell Ring, pieces of mountains will have holes blown through them, houses will be smoking in the background, and the ring itself will be cracked and almost destroyed. Also in the background, some buildings have holes in them and one even has part of a train track in it. Use the Spirit Bomb with Goku and you will find yourself in a crater fighting your opponent, with twisters in the background. Additionally, use one of the following moves with the indicated character to fight in a crater:
- Spirit Bomb with Goku or Cell
- Super Kamehameha with Teen Gohan
- Big Bang Attack with Vegeta
- Burning Attack with Trunks
- Hellzone Grenade with Piccolo
- Death Ball with Freiza
At the level selection screen, press Up. The screen should now have question marks and now say random. It will select any level in any order.
When in Tournaments, instead of trying to kill the CPU opponents, just lure them close to the edge of the ring. Tap X + Down to move behind the opponent, then use a strong move to knock them out the ring.
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.
Taunting (press P + K + G + E) will lower your opponent’s Ki gauge by 1.
Add a Senzu Bean with Sayian Heritage. Your attack will be boosted after the Senzu Bean is used. A normal bean takes up 3.
Charge your own energy
To charge your energy, rotate the Right Analog-stick clockwise. This works best with Piccolo.
If you are doing a combo that your having trouble with (for example, the Super Kamahamaha (K(2), 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(2), K(2), E.
Easy way to turn Super Saiyan
Get the Super Saiyan ability, then press R1 + R2 to transform. This can be used for anyone’s type of transformation. Note: This can also be used to do the King Kai Fist and Unlock Potential.
When you complete The Legend Of Hercule, the points you earn will be turned into Zenie.
The Dragon Balls
Within the game you can collect the seven Dragon Balls. In order to get them, you have to buy them at Mr. Popo’s shop. However, they are very rare. They cost 8000 Zenie each and will only appear in a “Recommended” or “Gambled” Capsule. After collecting all seven, go to the Caps List option in the “Edit Skills” menu. Then go along to the second to last list. If all seven Dragon Balls are present, press X and you will be asked if you wish to summon Shenron. Select “Yes” and you will be given the option to “Breakthrough” three random characters. Breakthrough is a Capsule which will open all the Death Moves, Transformations, and Physical Moves of the character in possession. However, it takes up seven ability slots and cannot be equipped in conjunction with anything else. After choosing your character, the Dragon Balls will disappear and you will have to collect them all again. If you do not like the random choice of three characters that Shenron powers-up, restart the PlayStation 3. 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.
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.
When fighters simultaneously connect with an Energy Punch, you enter Burst Zone. You will know when this is happening by the speed at which both warriors are attacking and blocking. Rotate the Left Analog-stick as quickly as possible. If you are the fastest, you will deliver a powerful knock-back attack on your opponent upon exiting the Burst Zone. The easiest way to win in the Burst Zone is when you enter it, spin both the Left Analog-stick and Right Analog-stick as fast as possible. This has the same effect as pressing the directional buttons and command buttons all at the same time, but a lot easier to do.
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.
Hold X and tap Back(2), and hold Back after you tap it again.
Hold X, then press Away.
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.
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.
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.
Easy opponent damage in Kami’s Lookout level
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.
Adept Tournament Capsule
Play in Novice mode and become number one. Go to Mister Popo. 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 Mister Popo. 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. Additionally, play through the Namekian Saga on 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”. Also, 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.
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. Additionally, 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. Also, 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.
Ki Ball tennis
This has no purpose other than a laugh, and will not unlock anything in the game. Enter practice mode (or two-player duel if you want to play with a friend) and choose your characters and stage. When the fight starts, put as much distance between you and your opponent as possible. If in practice mode, set the opponent’s action to Deflect-Back at the pause menu. Once you are as far away as desired, launch an energy ball by pressing Circle. In practice mode, your opponent should knock it back at you. Just before the ball hits you, press guard (X) and if it timed correctly, it should be reflected back at the opponent. In a two player match, you can play it like a proper game. For example, flip a coin to see who serves (launches the energy blast). Set a score limit. If the Ki ball is knocked away, hits, or is hit by another Ki blast, whoever reflected the ball last gets the point.
Defeating Cell in all forms
As soon as you start, back up. Your opponent should run attack. Jump back and Kick(3). 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.
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”.
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 L1 and press Left or Right until you see P + K + G (the transformation buttons). You will now have L1 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. To transform with any character easier, press L1 + X. Your character will instantly transform into a stronger character. Additionally, select “Controller” at the options screen and press X. Then, press Right until you get to “Custom”. Then, hold L1 and press Left(2). P + K + G should be displayed. Begin a game, then press L1 and you should transform into your next stage.
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.
This trick do the maximum amount of damage and requires a controller with an auto-fire feature and Gero’s Perpetual Energy R&D. This can be with any character. Equip Gero’s Perpetual Energy R&D, then go to practice. Knock the CPU down. While the CPU is down, set Circle to auto-fire for the Ki Blast Wave. It will do damage over 10,000 and combos over 100.
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.
If you enter any battlefield with walls that touch against the field, push your opponent against the wall and do an Elbow Smash (Toward + 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.
After you complete the story mode you will be able to go back and do new missions in the three different sagas to unlock characters and items. After you do the new missions for each saga (can be done randomly), another mission opens where the story from the cartoon and game is changed. In the Saiyan Saga, you play as Vegeta and take on the Z Fighters. After Vegeta defeats each of them he turns Super Saiyan. In the Namek Saga, you play as Frieza and once again take on the Z Fighters. Once they are defeated Freeza, will use the Dragonballs and ask to be invincible. His wish is granted and he destroys Namek and then goes after Earth. In the Android Saga, you play as Cell. After absorbing Android 17, Cell goes after Android 18. He will try to absorb her but Krillin will jump in the way and be absorbed instead. Cell will become a hilarious fusion between the two. He will then take on Yamcha. After the fight, Tien goes to blast him but Cell suddenly wakes up from a dream. He is in his Perfect form waiting for the Cell Games. Additionally, these episodes can be unlocked when you complete Story Mode at any level:

Then, in the Buu Saga, when you get to the part when Mystic Gohan gets absorbed by Super Buu and Goku starts looking for someone to fuse with, look around the area. You should see a “???” on a scroll of paper. Land there. Goku will start talking to Hercule, then leave. Next, fly to the red dot. Before landing on it, look around the area. You will see “???” on a scroll. Land there, and you will see Tien. Goku will see Tien injured, and he will leave. Then, go to the dot, fuse with Vegeta, and beat up Super Buu by using Vegito. After that, a dialogue will appear with Vegito being absorbed. After that, defeat Super Buu inside his own body, and after that a dialogue will appear with Kid Buu destroying Earth. You will then be able to fly around. However before you land on the dot, search around the area where the red dot is found. You will see “Mountains” written on a scroll of paper. Land there, and you will talk with Kibitoshin. He will say that a power greater than Buu has arrived on Earth. Vegeta will say that he will hold off Kid Buu while you check out this new power. After that dialogue, fly to the red dot and it will be Broly. Defeat him to unlock him. He will have a story in Dragon Universe mode. You can also use him in Tournament, Dueling, Practice, etc.
Use the following trick to unlock Broly, Goku (SS4), Gogeta, Gogeta (SS4), and Omega Shenron (with Goku). Before looking for Vegeta for the Vegito Fusion in the Buu Saga, look for Hercule near where Buu absorbed Gohan. Slightly southwest of the red dot you, should find Tien. He is unconscious. Just south of him you will find Supreme Kai. He will say he feels a larger force then Majin Buu. Fuse and fight Buu. During the final fight, instead of fighting Kid Buu, Vegeta will tell you to find the larger power and defeat it. Defeat Broly to get his capsule. After Goten and Trunks will challenge you to a Fusion, fight at the World Tournament Arena as Gotenks against Gogeta. Instead of fighting him, look for a “???” to the northeast of the World Tournament on one of the small islands. There you should get Goku’s SS4 capsule. From here, go to West City near the bridge. Talk to Bulma about the Dragon Radar. Afterwards, go to the World Tournament and take on Gotenks. After defeating him, you will get Gogeta’s Capsule and Omega Shenron will appear. Go to Central City. Once there you will fuse with SS4 Vegeta and get the SS4 Gogeta capsule. Defeat Omega as SS4 Gogeta to get his capsule. Note: These are the five most difficult characters to get in the game.
Effective techniques with Broly
Broly’s large body gives you an advantage over most opponents, even the very small ones. Constantly attacking your opponent with physical and Ki attacks can cause heavy damage, but may leave you open to counter attacks. Holding R1 launches Broly’s Clothesline, which sends opponents flying backwards. This is very effective in World Tournament matches. To gain an easy victory, practice doing the following: fight with your opponent using only physical attacks such as kicking and punching, increasing your Ki until you have five or more bars of energy (preferably maximum energy). Transform into the Legendary Super Saiyan when you are as close to your opponent as you can get. This will stun your opponent for a short while. As soon as you have transformed, press L2 and go into hyper mode. Your opponent should be about ready to fight again. Press L2 again before they get a chance to dodge. Note: If your opponent dodged ultimate attack, dash towards them and stop in mid air, then dodge right or left by pressing X + Up or X + Down, as they are likely to blast or punch you while you are dashing at them. Press L2 again immediately and catch your opponent off guard. This should send your opponent into the air and launch Broly’s Ultimate Attack. Note: If you fail at any point during the previous combo, you can leave yourself open to a lot of damage, especially from a SS4 Goku. This requires practice, but you will eventually be able to land Broly’s ultimate attack immediately.
Fight Broly multiple times
After you defeat Broly, you can fight him as many times as desired the next time on Goku’s Dragon Universe story. Go to the mountain area where you fought Vegeta for the first time. Before you go to the first red dot, there should be a Battle Point. Use it to fight Broly, and level up quickly without Dragon Arena.

When this is done, SS Vegeta will appear as a red dot to the southwest of where you defeated Frieza. Defeat SS Vegeta, then go to Cooler’s red dot. Defeat him to unlock him.
To unlock Cooler, who is Freeza’s brother, play Goku’s Dragon Universe mode a third time, or anything more than the two times.

However, this may vary from game to game.
Easy wins with SS4 Goku
Select the following capsules with Goku: Kaioken, SSJ, SSJ2, SSJ3, SSJ4, Kamehameha, and Spirit Bomb. Attack your opponent with physical blows, such as kicks and punches, and use combos to knock them back (without using any energy blast). When your opponent hits the floor, power up your energy. As they rise to their feet again, dash towards them and hit them so that they fall to the floor. Once your Ki is at maximum, transform into SSJ4 while standing as close as you can to your opponent. Notice that your opponent will be unguarded and stunned for a few seconds. As soon as you finish transforming, press L2 to turn into hyper mode. Then, press L2 again. If done correctly, you should send your opponent into the air and try to do a Spirit Bomb. However, the Spirit Bomb fades and the energy will flow into Goku.

Finding capsules and items
Start your flying through the sky of your world map at the bottom left hand corner, or where your impending Boss battle will start (at the red dot). Angle your triangle indicator on the world map slightly to the right, then hold Left Analog-stick Up + L1. Make sure your arrow is at a slight angle so that you will not skip over anything. When you see a scroll flash by in the top right corner of the world map, release L1 and just hold the Left Analog-stick Down until you reach the scroll that you flew past. This is also effective when searching for the Dragon Balls themselves, with or without the Dragon Radar. If after a battle on the red dot you find yourself back at the world map, start the process over again at the red dot. New items and capsules will be added to the world map. If after visiting a scroll or city you can still see it, go back to it again. You never know what you might get during your second trip around. After defeating an opponent at the battle point scroll, you can go back to it, but it will not result in as much experience points as during the first time. Before you start flying, make sure your view is towards the ground (press the Right Analog-stick Up); sometimes you can see items (sparkling flashes of light).
Use the following trick to find the Dragon Balls easily. Go into Flying Burst mode (Left Analog-stick Up + hold L1) with the Dragon Radar on the screen (use Triangle). Zoom around the screen with a slight angle on the Right Analog-stick. Look at the Dragon Radar, and when you see an orange dot on it, stop. Turn around and fly (not on Fly Burst mode) and look around until you see an orange dot and land there.
First, find the Dragon Radar. Once you do put it on, keep going forward while holding L1. Keep looking at the Dragon Radar and you will eventually see a Dragon Ball.
Go to any character’s story in Dragon Universe mode. Start a new game and find as much money as possible on the first Earth level. Save and quit, then repeat the process as many times as desired. Additionally, Buy Sparking!!!!!!! (400%) at the skill shop and equip it to Broly. Then, enter the Adept Tournament. The first place prize is $150,000 and second place is $75,000. Alternately, have a character at level 75 to 81 defeat all Brolys, and some Omega Shenrons. Then defeat seven characters level 1 to 80 and defeat level 98 Vegeta to obtain Sparking!!!!!!! Note: Part 2 is in Dragon Arena.
Look around Earth, and in a forest there will be $8,000 or $10,000. Remember the location, save, and get out. Re-enter Dragon Universe mode and repeat the process.
Use the following trick to defeat Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta easily. Find a battle point and keep fighting Saibermen until your health reaches whatever level you desire. Note: It’s a bad idea to keep doing it when on 10.
Easy wins with Goku
Make sure you have the Super Saiyan 4 capsule or Breakthrough (Goku). Keep punching or kicking your opponent until your Ki guage reads “MAX”. Then, press R1. Next, use P(4), E or Toward, E to use Goku’s replaced move of the Kamehameha, 10X Kamehameha. Note: You must have the 10X Kamehameha or the Breakthrough for Goku. Also, you may hold X and tap and hold the direction facing away from your opponent.
Easy way to buy moves
Keep going in and out of the Skill Shop. Sometimes you will see a recommended, Sparking ($100,000), or rare move/item, or the green capsule.
Easy power struggle wins
When you do an ultimate move, there is the power struggle that you will always lose depending on the CPU’s results. The following is what to press in the power struggle:
- The first round is Square.
- The second round is Triangle.
- The third round is Circle.
Note: It is best when it reaches “MAX”.
Easy World Tournament wins
This can be done with any character, but Omega Shenron is recommended. Enter the World Tournament on any difficulty setting and choose your character. At the start of each match, press Away(2) and Up/Away to one of the edges. Wait there, and when your opponent attacks, press Forward + X to warp behind them and knock them out of the ring. Sometimes you may get into a “warp battle”, but if you have enough Ki, you should win. Additionally, once the match starts, press R2 to go into a rage. The opponent will start to run towards the edge. Then, just knock them out of the ring.
Unlock Kid Goku, then use him in the tournament. When you are fighting, push or go to the edge of the ring or close to it. Press R1 to push the enemy out of the ring or knock them off guard and attack him to push him off.
Easy World Tournament wins with Uub
For an easy Advanced World Tournament win, equip Ki Cannon (strong), Fierce Flurry (stronger), Potential (to raise attack), and Serious!!! (to increase attack when weakened) to Uub. Continue to use Ki Cannon to take a lot of health down. Fierce Flurry works even better. They both can knock back your opponent for a quick win. Also, use his Circle attack to knock opponents backwards. Uub is fast and small, which helps against those huge powerhouses (for example, Broly, Omega Shenron, Recoome, etc.). He also is a great dodger which helps prevent knock backs and Dragon Rushes when your opponent is in Hyper Mode. Note: This is useful for unlocking the Ultimate Moves, the Baba Crystal Ball movies, and Breakthroughs.
Use the following trick to win in Dragon Rush about 80% of the time in every match. If you start Dragon Rush, first: X; second: Triangle; third: Square. If your opponent starts Dragon Rush, use Square, Circle, or X.
Spirit Bomb/Super Dragon Fist
The Spirit Bomb is a lot more flexible in this game than its predecessors. You can not only use the Spirit Bomb, you can use the Super Dragon Fist also. You do not always have to be at SS4 to use the Super Dragon Fist. Any level beyond Super Sayain can use it (SS1, SS2, and SS3).
Flying in battles
In a battle, hold Up/Away to go in the air. When in the air you can go back down by holding Down/Away.
Super punch with Broly
When you use Broly after transforming, you can deliver a devastating punch by tapping Forward(2), Circle. This is best done when finishing off an opponent or knocking your opponent into a obstacle or out of the ring in World Tournament mode. Note: You may phase behind your opponent when you hit him or her.
All moves with Cell
Unlock Cell by completing Teen Gohan’s Dragon Universe mode. Then in the Capsule Shop, Cell’s Kamehameha, #17 Absorption, and Energy Field will appear randomly. In Teen Gohan’s Dragon Universe mode, go to Cell’s Time Machine. You should get his Perfect Form. Again in Teen Gohan’s Dragon Universe mode, defeat Super Perfect Cell. You should get his Super Perfect Form. Cell’s Spirit Bomb appears in the Capsule Shop after buying a few Ultimate Moves. Note: Spirit Bomb can only be used in the Perfect or Super Perfect Forms.
Dragon Rush attack with Frieza
This can only be done with Frieza’s third form. The secret Dragon Rush is not a capsule. While in Frieza’s third form, complete the full Dragon Rush. In the end, Frieza will do a different Dragon Rush move than his usual. He will do the move that he did to Piccolo in the television show.
Avoid fighting Goku in Majin Buu saga
When you are Majin Vegeta, go to an area that reads “Plains”. One of them should have Piccolo. Talk to him, then fight him. When he is defeated, the next marker will have Majin Buu in that area instead of Goku. Additionally, when you are Majin Vegeta, go to Goku’s house. There should be an area reading “Plains” next to it. There, you will talk to Gohan and fight him. Then, Majin Buu will be at your next marker.

This should take all seven slots, or if you want equip his Breakthrough. Start the fight by attacking with only physical attacks (punches and kicks). Do not waste any energy until your power has reached maximum, and get as close as you can to your opponent. Press L1 to transform to SS4 and keep using Vegeta’s Final Shine Attack (Galick Gun). This attack is recommended, as they are tired from Hyper Mode, and because they cannot block the incoming attack this should take out a lot of life. (one full bar, or slightly more). If they use Hyper Mode, avoid being hit by them until their power has run out. Then. go and beat them up with some Final Shine attacks, or the deadly Big Bang Attack. Use Vegeta’s Big Bang Attack when they are tired from Hyper Mode. Hopefully they will have low yellow or high red health. Either way, they will be defeated. Note: Avoid the edge at all costs.
Alternate SS4 appearance in Vegeta
Once you acquire SS4 for Vegeta, win the game and start another Dragon Universe mode as Vegeta. Make sure you have SS4 equipped. When time comes to fight Androids 17 and 16, turn SS4. If done correctly, you should have a yellow tail and upper body instead of red; white gloves and boots instead of purple; and yellow jeans instead of blue.

Go to duel and select one player vs. two players. Select both players as Goku with the following: Kaioken, SS1, SS2, SS3, Spirit Bomb, and Kamehameha. Then, select Buu’s Insides for the stage. Have both players charge up to maximum Ki, turn SS3, and go into hyper mode. Then, have both players repeatedly punch at the same time. Eventually you should go into slow motion.
Practice Ki gauges
While playing in practice mode, press Select and all your Ki gauges will automatically fill up.
Kakarot is Goku’s sayian name. His “grandpa” Gohan (whom Goku names his first son after) named him Goku when he found him in the woods. He was a wild animal until he fell and hit his head, which is why he could not remember who or what he was.
Interrupted fight in Dragon Arena
Win battles until you have five or six victories. On the sixth or seventh battle, someone might interrupt your fight. Defeat him or her to unlock capsules. If this does not happen, try with another character with a different level.
Play as Teen Gohan the second time through in Dragon Universe. Go to battle point, and instead of fighting a goblin you will fight a Metal Freeza. This works as many times as desired. Freeza does not have the same voice.
Pole through body
Unlock Kid Goku. Select him in any place besides Dragon Universe. When your opponent blocks, hold R1 or R2. He will extend his “Power Pole”. It will then go through them if they are close enough. On short characters like Krillin, Goten, etc., it will go through the head. On medium sized characters such as Goku, Raditz, etc., it will go through their stomach or chest. On large characters like Broly, Nappa, etc., it will go through their groin.
When you fight in Grandpa Gohan’s house, in the background you will see the giant fish that Goku grabbed from the lake, It even has the bite that Goku got to take before Bulma so rudely interrupted.
In Training Chapter 10, Cell claims that he and Frieza are in HFIL. They are actually in the devastated version of Planet Namek.
Select Goku in his second outfit (blue), then have the SSJ4 Gogeta capsule equipped when you fuse with SSJ4 Vegeta. In his second outfit, Gogeta will have silver hair instead of red.
In the Namek arena in duel mode, use a devastating attack. It will show Earth instead of Namek.
With Vegeta in Dragon Universe mode, instead of saying “I should have finished them off when I had the chance” he says, “they should have finished them off when they had the chance”.
