Introduction:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
	Hi. This is a Guide for DBZ: Taiketsu as you can see. 
It is also my first FAQ.  The intro is for telling 
you a bit about the game.  This game is made by Atari and 
Webfoot.  Of the long line of DB/Z/GT games, this is probably 
the easiest.But it’s one of the most rewarding to.  It has 
good 3-D clay-like graphics, average sound quality, and a 
good replay value! Since it is the first DBZ fighting game for
the GBA, you should go easy on it.  Webfoot just needs some 
practice, a LOT of practice.
	Actually, the graphics are somewhere in between 2-D 
and 3-D.  More like, 2.5-D, I would say.  They should 
have stuck with sprites but this is OK by itself!
	This is the first DBZ fighting game with Broly in 
it (that I know of).
	So lets read my first FAQ, see how 
I did, and take everything this game has and put it right 
in your hands!¡

B. How to get the characters:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You start out with: Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo, Krillin, 
Android 18, and Trunks.


Raditz - Beat Tournament with Trunks!

Nappa - Beat Tournament with Vegeta!

Gotenks - Beat Tournament with 4 people plus Goku!

Frieza - Beat Tournament with everyone so far!

Android 16 - Beat Tournament with all characters so far plus 
two characters in Time Challenge!

Cell - Beat Tournament Android 16!

Buu – Beat Tournament characters so far then Time Challenge 
with Piccolo!

Broly – Beat Tournament or Time Challenge with Buu!

Note: (You may find other ways to get the characters but this 
is how I got them.)


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
C. Tournament:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
The Tournament mode is the main way to get the characters, with 
your chosen character, you battle your way through 8 
opponents, each one supposedly stronger than the last.  At the
end of each tournament battle, you see a screen which 
totals up your Z Points, and you see a neat picture from the 
series 
next to it. Once you clear all 8 battles, it will 
tell you what you got for it, (ex: 25,000 extra Z Points, Cell, 
etc.) 
Then it will tell you a battle story…

Goku: GOKU DEFEATED THE MOST EVIL VILLAINS IN THE UNIVERSE.  HE 
HAD FACED UNIMAGINABLE TERRORS, 
AND BEATEN INCONCEIVABLE ODDS.  HE HAD PROVED HIMSELF AS ONE OF 
THE UNIVERSE’S GREATEST HEROES.  HOWEVER, 
NOTHING COULD HAVE PREPARED HIM FOR HIS ULTIMATE CHALLENGE: THE 
WRATH OF HIS WIFE CHI-CHI!

Gohan: UNLEASHING THE RAGE HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN, GOHAN WAS ABLE 
TO DEFEAT THE EVILS THAT ONCE THREATNED THE PLANET. 
WITH THE WORLD SAFE FROM DANGER, GOHAN RETURNED TO HIS EVERY 
DAY LIFE OF GOING TO SCHOOL, AND BEING A SUPER HERO.

Piccolo: HIS HEART ONCE FILLED WITH EVIL, PICCOLO HAD LEARNED 
TO CALM THE WICKEDNESS THAT ONCE FILLED HIS ENTIRE BEING. 
HE SMILED TO HIMSELF AS HE THOUGHT OF THE IRONY, THAT HE HAD 
JUST SAVED THE PLANET HE ONCE LONGED TO CONQUER AND PILLAGE.  
NOW HIS ONLY DESIRE WAS TO PROTECT THE PLACE HE NOW CALLED 
HOME.

Krillin: KRILLIN STOOD STARING INTO THE DISTANCE, IN AWE OF 
HIMSELF.  SOMEHOW HE HAD SUMMONED UP THE COURAGE 
TO SAVE THE WORLD.  HE WONDERED WHERE HE GOT THE CONFIDENCE, 
AND THOUGHT THAT PERHAPS IT WAS HIS LOVE FOR ANDROID 18.  
HAVING JUST WON THE GREATEST BATTLE OF HIS LIFE, HE BEGAN 
TO FLYHOME, DECIDING TO 
TAKE A LONG BREAK FROM FIGHTING.

Android 18: DURING HER FIGHTS, SOME THING HAD AWAKENED IN 
ANDROID 18. IT WAS THAT URGE FOR DESTRUCTION AND MAYHEM.  
IT WAS HER OLD PROGRAMING THAT DR. GERO HAD INTERGRATED 
INTO HER MIND, REVIVED BY HER AGGRESSIVE FEELINGS.  HOWEVER,
 HOUGHTS OF HER NEW FRIENDS, ESPECIALLY OF KRILLIN, CALMED 
HERMIND AS SHE LEFT THE BATTLEFIELD.
  
Trunks: FINALLY IT WAS OVER. THE THREAT TO THE EARTH HAD ENDED.  
TRUNKS CAME FROM THE FUTURE, TO SAVE THE PAST.  
HE CAME FROM A WORLD WHERE SO MANY PEOPLE HE HELD DEAR HAD DIED 
FIGHTING THE ANDROIDS. HE LIVED IN A WORLD OF TERROR, 
AND PROMISED HIMSELF HE WOULD NOT LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN.  
MAYBE NOW HE COULD LIVE IN PEACE.

Vegeta: VEGETA LOOKED AT THE DESTRUCTION ALL AROUND HIM, A 
RESULT OF THE EPIC BATTLE. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT HE, 
A SAIYAN WARRIOR PRINCE, WOULD HAVE FOUGHT SO STRONGLY TO SAVE 
A TINY INSIGNIFICANT PLANET LIKE EARTH?  BUT SOMEHOW, 
HE HAD COME TO LOVE THIS LITTLE BLUE MARBLE.  “I MUST BE 
HANGING AROUND KAKAROT TOO MUCH,” HE MUTTERED TO HIMSELF.

Raditz: RADITZ HAD HIS REVENGE AGAINST THE FOOLS WHO KILLED 
HIM!  NOTHING COULD STOP HIM!  HE WAS INVINCIBLE! SUDDENLY
HE FOUND HIMSELF LYING ON THE GROUND.  HE WAS BACK IN HFIL!
“HOW CAN THIS BE?!”  
HE SCREAMED.  “I’M INVINCIBLE!”  “INVINCIBLE?”  LAUGHED
NAPPA.  “YOU BARELY LASTED 5 MINUTES OUT THERE.  YOU’VE 
BEEN KNOCKED OUT FOR THE LAST TWO HOURS!”

Nappa: NAPPA GRIMLY WONDERED, WHAT WAS NEXT?  HE HAD 
ESCAPED FROM THE HOME FOR INFINITE LOSERS, 
AND EXACTED HIS REVENGE UPON PRINCE VEGETA, AND 
HIS PUNY FRIENDS.  WHAT WAS THERE LEFT TO DO?  THE 
INSTINCTS DEEP WITHIN HIS SAIYAN BLOOD GAVE HIM THE
AWNSER.  AND SO HE LOOTED AND PILLAGED
THE GALAXY FOR THE REST OF HIS DAYS.

Frieza: FRIEZA HAD ELIMINATED ALL HIS ENEMIES. THE 
PROTECTORS OF THE EARTH 
WERE GONE! NOTHING COULD STOP HIM NOW.  
THE DRAGON BALLS WOULD BE HIS, AND ONCE HE GAINED 
IMMORTALITY, THE UNIVERSE 
WOULD TREMBLE!  “I WILL SHOW NO MERCY!”, 
HE SCREAMED, AS HE LAID WASTE TO A CITY LAUGHING 
MANIACALLY.

Android 16: ANDROID 16’s SERVOS WERE STRAINED.  
EVERY TRANSISTOR IN HIS BODY
WAS REGESTERING PAIN.  
BUT IT DIDN’T MATTER TO HIM.  HE HAD PROTECTED EARTH.  
HIS SACRIFICE MEANT 
THAT EVERY BIRD, EVERY SQUIRREL, 
EVERY TREE ON THE PLANET WOULD SURVIVE.  HE STARED AT 
THE CLEAR BLUE SKY AND 
SMILED, AS ONE BY ONE HIS SYTEMS 
SHUT DOWN AND THE SHIMMER IN HIS EYES GREW DIM.

Cell: PERFECTION. CELL HAD FINNALY ACHIEVED DR. GERO’S 
DARK DREAM OF REVENGE.  
HIS MASTER WOULD BE PROUD, 
WERE HE STILL ALIVE!  HE WONDERED WHAT HE WOULD DO NEXT.
THE EARTH WAS NO LONGER 
A CHALLENGE.  HE THEN REALIZED DR. GERO’S TRUE PURPOSE 
FOR CREATING HIM: THE 
DESTRUCTION OF THE UNIVERSE!


Gotenks: GOTENKS WAS COMEPLETELY DISAPPOINTED.  HE 
TOTALLY KICKED ALL THE BAD GUYS’
 BUTTS!  THE PROBLEM 
WAS THAT NO ONE WAS AROUND TO SEE IT HAPPEN!  THEY 
MISSED ALL HIS AWESOME ATTACKS 
AND RADICAL MOVES!  
IF HE TOLD ANYONE WHAT HAPPENED, WOULD THEY BELIEVE 
HIM?  HE WONDERED IF MAYBE HE 
SHOULD HAVE WAITED FOR A CROWD TO GATHER.

Buu: BUU’S SIMPLE MIND WAS FILLED WITH JOY AS HE 
DESTROYED THE PLANET EARTH.  HE 
GIGGLED WITH MADNESS.  
HOWEVER, SUDDENLY A TINGE OF REGRET APPEARED IN 
HIS MIND.  HE WOULD MISS ALL THE 
DELICIOUS PASTERIES, 
CHOCOLATES, CANDIES, AND CAKES HE HAD TASTED.  
WHAT WOULD HE DO NOW?  THEN HE 
REMEMBERED THE UNIVERSE IS FULL OF SWEETS!

Broly: PATHETIC.  THAT WAS THE ONLY WORD BROLY
COULD THINK OF TO DESCRIBE THE 
SAIYANS HE JUST DEFEATED.  
HE FELT ASHAMED TO SHARE THE SAME RACE.  THEY 
COULD NOT EVEN BEGIN TO 
COMPREHEND HIS LEGENDARY POWERS.  
WAS THERE NO ONE IN THE COSMOS WHO COULD 
CHALLENGE HIM?  HE PONDERED AS HE 
DESTROYED YET ANOTHER PLANET WITHOUT MERCY.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
D. Time Challenge:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
                                

 Time challenge is basically the same thing as tournament, 
except you try and get the best time, (as in beating it the 
quickest.)  The battle stories at the end are the same as 
Tournament.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
E. Sparring:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       This is where you practice your moves, skills, and 
supers.  There are two modes of it, CPU off, and 
CPU on. This is where I try and figure out specials for new 
characters. 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
F. Endurance:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This mode is pretty much self-explanatory.  You see how long 
you can last in a non-stop fight!
Every time you get a character down to no HP, he/she reverts 
into another character.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
G. Multi-player:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This is where you can link up with a friend and duke it off!  
<Note: 2 gamepacks and a link are required to do this mode.>
Here is the menu layout:

Battle -> Select Character
Sparring -> Select Character

Battle: Duke it out with a friend to see who is the ultimate Z Fighter!

Sparring: Practice with a friend with infinite HP.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Goku: BORN A SAIYAN NAMED KAKAROT, HE WAS ORIGINALLY SENT TO 
DESTROY IT. AS A CHILD, HE HAD AN ACCIDENT, AND FORGOT ABOUT HIS EVIL MISSION,
AND THUS THE GOOD-NATURED, HONEST, AND CARING GOKU WAS BORN. HE TRAINED
WITH MASTER ROSHI AND KING KAI TO LEARN SKILLS TO HELP SAVE THE EARTH, AND WAS
THE FIRST SAIYAN IN A THOUSAND YEARS TO LEARN THE ABILITY TO GO SUPER-SAIYAN.
GOKU IS THE CENTRAL CHARACTER IN DRAGON BALL Z. HE IS A LONG TIME FRIEND OF
KRILLEN, HUSBAND OF CHI-CHI, FATHER OF GOHAN AND GOTEN, BROTHER OF RADITZ,
AND OF THE SAME SAIYAN RACE AS VEGETA, TRUNKS, AND BROLY. HIS SPECIAL ABILITIES
INCLUDE THE KAMEHAMEHA WAVE AND THE SPIRIT BOMB.

Gohan: AFFECTIONATLLY NAMED AFTER HIS ADOPTIVE GRANDFATHER, GOHAN IS GOKU &
CHI-CHI'S ELDEST SON.  AS A YOUNG BOY, GOHAN CRIED A LOT, AND WAS EASILY 
FRIGHTENED; FEW WOULD HAVE GUESSED HE WOULD GROW UP TO BE SUCH A STRONG 
FIGHTER. AFTER HIS FATHER DIED FIGHTING RADITZ, GOHAN TRAINED HARD FOR
A FULL YEAR UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF PICCOLO. BECUASE GOHAN IS HALF-HUMAN,
AND HALF-SAIYAN, HIS STRENGTH CAN ACTUALLY EXCEED GOKU'S. HOWEVER CHI-CHI
OFTEN INSISTS THAT HE CONCENTRATE ON SCHOLASTIC MATTERS RATHER THAN
FIGHTING. GOHAN HAS THE ABILITY TO BEOCME A SUPER-SAIYAN, AND HIS 
SPECIAL ABILITIES INCLUDE THE KAMEHAMEHA WAVE, AND THE MASENKO-HA.

Piccolo: PICCOLO ORIGINATES FROM THE PLANET NAMEK. HE WAS BORN AS AN EGG FROM
THE MOUTH OF THE EVIL PICCOLO DAIMAOU. ORIGINALLY, EVIL PICCOLO INTENDED TO
DESTROY GOKU. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE FIGHT WITH RADITZ; WHERE GOKU GAVE HIS OWN
LIFE FOR THE SAKE OF EARTH; THAT PICCOLO REALIZED GOKU HAD A PURE SPIRIT AND
WAS A CARING PERSON. HE HELPED TRAIN GOHAN TO BE A COURAGEOUS FIGHTER, AND
IN THE PROCESS MADE A GOOD FRIEND. HE HAS AN AWKWARD LIFE, LIVING ON A PLANET
THAT ISN'T HIS OWN, AND MAKING THE CONSCIOUS DECISION TO FIGHT FOR GOOD 
INSTEAD OF EVIL. HIS SPECIAL ABILITIES INCLUDE BEING ABLE TO DUPLICATE
HIMSELF, AND HIS SIGNATURE, THE SPECIAL BEAM CANNON.

Krillin: DESPITE HIS SIDE, KRILLIN IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST MEN ON EARTH!
HOWEVER, BECAUSE HE IS AN EARTHLING, THERE ARE TIMES WHEN HE CAN'T
KEEP UP WITH THE SAIYANS AND THEIR MASSIVE POWER LEVELS. NONETHELESS,
KRILLIN IS A VERY GOOD FIGHTER, AND HE AND GOKU HAVE FOUGHT ALONGSIDE
ONE ANOTHER SINCE CHILD-HOOD, WHEN THEY TRAINED TOGETHER UNDER MASTER
ROSHI. SOME OF HIS ABILITIES INCLUDE THE SUPER HEAD-BUTT, AND DESTRUCTO
DISC.

Android 18: ANDROID 18 IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS CREATURES TO EVER
THREATEN THE EARTH. SHE AND HER TWIN BROTHER, ANDROID 17, WERE THE
BRAIN-CHILD OF DR. GERO. THE ANDROIDS WERE ORIGINALLY PROGRAMMED TO DESTROY
GOKU, BUT IN THE SPIRIT OF TEENAGE REBELLION, THEY DISOBEYED THEIR CREATOR,
DESTROYED HIM AND WREAKED HAVOC AROUND THE WORLD IN A CAREFREE MANNER.
WHILE SHE MAY LOOK DELICATE AND GRACEFUL, ANDROID 18 CAN BE VIRTUALLY 
EMOTIONLESS, AND SHE IS VERY, VERY POWERFUL. SHE HAS THE ABILITY TO SHOOT
A SOLID ENERGY BEAM, AND TO SELF-DESTRUCT.

Trunks: TRUNKS IS THE SON OF VEGETA AND BULMA. AS A RESULT, HE IS A
GREAT WARRIOR, AND ALSO HAS KEEN TECHNICAL ABILITIES. IN ORDER TO SAVE
THE WORLD, HE TRAVELED BACK IN TIME TO ORGANIZE THE Z FIGHTERS, IN A RACE
TO DESTROY DR. GERO'S ANDROIDS BEFORE THEY DESTROYED THE PLANET. BECAUSE
HE IS HALF-SAIYAN, HE HAS THE ABILITY TO GO SUPER-SAIYAN. TRUNKS WIELDS
A SWORD, AND USES IT IN HIS MOST POWERFUL ATTACKS, SUCH AS THE TRIPLE 
SLASH, AND THE FINAL SLASH.

Vegeta: VEGETA WAS FORMERLY A PRINCE OF THE PLANET VEGETA. HE CAME TO 
EARTH WITH NAPPA WITH THE INTENTION OF CAPTURING THE DRAGONBALLS, 
BUT EVENTUALLY MADE IT HIS HOME. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN JEALOUS OF THE FACT
THAT GOKU IS MERELY A DESCENDANT OF THE PEASANT CLASS, YET ALWAYS SEEMS
TO BE MORE POWERFUL. VEGETA IS AN EXCELLANT FIGHTER THOUGH, AND THROUGH
ENDLESS SELF-DETERMINATION, HE HAS TRAINED HIMSELF TO GO SUPER-SAIYAN,
AND RAISED HIS POWER LEVEL TO UNBELIEVABLE ACCOLADES. AS HE GREW OLDER
AND ADJUSTED TO THE GOOD NATURE OF THE Z FIGHTERS, HE SOFTENED UP A BIT,
AND HAD A CHILD WITH BULMA, NAMED TRUNKS. VEGETA'S SPECIAL ABILITIES
ARE THE GALICK GUN, BIG BANG, AND THE ABILITY TO TURN INTO A GIANT
OOZARU MONKEY.

Frieza: THE MERE MENTION OF THE NAME 'FREIZA' STRIKES DREAD IN THE HEARTS
OF MANY ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. IN HIS QUEST TO AQUIRE ALL 7 OF THE DRAGON
BALLS, HE DESTROYED THE PLANET NAMEK. THE ONLY PERSON CAPABLE DEFEATING
HIM WAS GOKU, WHO DID NOT QUITE FINISH HIM OFF, AND FRIEZA WAS REBUILT
BY KING COLD, HIS RUTHLESS FATHER. WITH A NEW CYBERNETIC BODY, FRIEZA
WENT TO EARTH TO GET REVENGE. HOWEVER, HIS ATTEMPT WAS THWARTED BY 
TRUNKS. FRIEZA HAS THE ABILITY TO SHOOT SHOOT FROM HIS EYES, AND
TO CREATE A DEATH BALL, WHICH UNLEASHES A POWERFUL BLAST UPON THE
EARTH, IF IT IS ALLOWED TO DETONATE. 

Android 16: ANDROID 16 WAS AN EXPIRIMENT OF DR. GERO'S THAT WAS NEVER SUPPOSED 
TO BE SET FREE. DISOBEYING DR. GERO'S ORDERS, ANDROID 17 AND 18 DID JUST THAT.
HIS PROGRAMMING WAS NEVER COMPLETE, SO HE WAS VERY SINGLE MINDED: DETERMINED 
TO DESTROY GOKU WHILE NEVER HARMING ANYTHING ELSE. AFTER ALMOST BEING 
DEMOLISHED BY CELL, BULMA RE-PROGRAMMED HIM TO FIGHT FOR THE GOOD SIDE. THE
STRONG, SILENT TYPE, HE IS MASSIVE AND MUSCULAR, BUT CAN BE VERY GENTLE 
OUTSIDE OF A FIGHT. HE HAS THE ABILITIES OF ROCKET PUNCH, AND SELF-DESTRUCT,
TO NAME A FEW.

Cell: CELL WAS THE LAST, AND MOST DANGEROUS, OF DR. GERO'S CREATIONS. HIS NAME
REFERS TO THE FACT THAT HE IS COMPOSED OF THE CELLS OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN 
THE WORLD, INCLUDING THOSE OF THE Z FIGHTERS. HIS QUEST IS TO ABSORB ANDROID
17 AND 18 AND BECOME A PERFECT BEING. CELL CAN FIGHT WITH ABILITIES OF ALL THE
FIGHTERS HE HAS ABSORBED, AND SOME OF HIS MOVES INCLUDE THE KAMEHAMEHA WAVE 
AND TAIL STAB.

Gotenks: THE METAMORU ART OF FUSION ALLOWS THE TWO FRIENDS, GOTEN AND TRUNKS,
TO JOIN TOGETHER TO BECOME A SINGLE VERY POWERFUL BEING. LIKE THE BOYS
THEMSELVES, GOTENKS HAS THE ABILITY TO LEARN NEW MOVES QUICKLY, AS WELL AS
GO SS3. DESPITE HIS SIZE GOTENKS IS AN EXELLENT FIGHTER, AND HIS MOVES
INCLUDE THE KAMEHAMEHA WAVE, SUPER GHOST KAMIKAZE, AND GEKITOTSU ULTRA
BUU BUU VOLLEYBALL.

Buu: BUU WAS CREATED 300 YEARS AGO BY AN EVIL WIZARD NAMED BIBIDI. HE WAS 
RECKLESS IN HIS DESTRUCTION OF PLANETS, SO HE WAS UNLEASHED TO DESTROY EARTH
BY BIBIDI'S SON, BABIDI. THANKFULLY, BUU WAS CONVINCED BY HERCULE NOT TO HURT
PEOPLE ANYMORE--BUT HE'S NOT TOO BRIGHT, HE DEFINATELY HAS AN ANGRY SIDE.
BUU'S LARGE, RUBBERY BODY AFFORDS HIM AN UNIQUE EDGE IN THE MATCH, AND HE CAN
BE A TOUGH FIGHTER. HIS SPECIAL ABILITIES INCLUDE MOLDING HIMSELF INTO A FIST,
AND THE HENKA BEAM, WHICH CAN HELP CURB BUU'S APPETITE BY CREATING FOOD. 

Broly: BROLY IS AN EXCEPTIONAL SAIYAN; HE WAS BORN SUPER SAIYAN! BORN AT THE
SAME MOMENT AS GOKU, HE HARBORED A MYSTERIOUS RESENTMENT TOWARD HIM.  BROLY'S
FATHER TRIED TO USE HIM AS A WEAPON TO RULE THE UNIVERSE, BUT EVENTUALLY
HIS POWER WAS TOO STRONG, AND HE BROKE THE CONTROL MECHANISM. ONCE FREE, HE
ATTEMPTED TO KILL GOKU. BROLY IS AN OVERWHELMINGLY POWERFUL FIGHTER--AND IN
HIS SUPER SAIYAN STATE, HE IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH! HIS SUPER MOVES
INCLUDE THE HOVERCRAFT PUNCH AND SEISMIC PUNCH. 

Nappa: NAPPA IS A SAIYAN WARRIOR, AND CAME TO EARTH WITH THE INTENT OF
CAPTURING THE DRAGON BALLS. NAPPA IS VERY BRAWNY AND MUSCULAR, BUT IS ALSO
OFTENIMPULSIVE. WITH VEGETA'S DISCIPLINE, HOWEVER, HE HAS LEARNED TO STAY
RELATIVELY CALM. STILL, NAPPA SOMETIMES HAS TROUBLE WITH THE MENTAL ASPECTS
OF FIGHTING, BUT HE CAN USUALLY MAKE UP FOR IT IN STRENGTH/ HIS SPECIAL 
ABILITIES INCLUDE HIS SIGNATURE MOUTH BEAM, A ONE-HANDED POWER THROW, AND THE
EARTH QUAKE SLAM.

Raditz: RADITZ IS GOKU'S SAIYAN BROTHER FROM THE PLANET VEGETA. RADITZ CAME
TO EARTH TO FIND OUT WHY IT HAD TAKEN SO LONG FOR GOKU TO DESTROY SUCH A 
HELPLESS PLANET. WHEN HE FOUND OUT THAT GOKU LOVED THE EARTH, HE KIDNAPPED
GOHAN, AND TRIED TO USE ANY TRICKERY POSSIBLE TO CONVINCE GOKU TO DO THE JOB.
HE ABUSED GOKU'S TRUSTING NATURE, AND LIED TO HIM TO GET THE UPPER HAND.
RADITZ IS A SAIYAN WARRIOR, AND IS EXCEPTIONALLY STRONG. HIS MOVES RANGE FROM
THE FLYING ELBOW DROP TO THE ENERGY BEAM CHOP.

K.	Character Moves:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 
 Goku:
Kamehameha: Down, Forward, Down, Forward + B
Sadly, this Kamehameha is yellow, going against all concepts
of DBZ. :'(

Super Kamehameha: Down, Forward, Down, Forward + L
This is the right Kamehameha.  Coku turns into Super Saiyan, 
and blasts the enemy with a BLUE Kamehameha.

Genki Dama: Back, Down, Forward, Up + L
Also known as the Spirit Bomb, Goku jumps into the black place,
puts his hands over his head, and charges the Spirit Bomb. 
Then he releases it and throws it at the enemy!

Vegeta:
Galick Gun: Down, Forward, Down, Forward + B
Vegeta jumps halfway to the top of the screen, Shoots a purple
Ki wave at about a 45-degree angle causing about 1/4 a bar 
of damage.

Big Bang: Down, Forward, Down, Forward + L
Vegeta turns into a Super Saiyan, (sadly his hair is orange) 
and hurls a ball of glowing Ki towards the enemy causing a 
bit more damage than the Galick Gun!

Oozaru: Back, Down, Forward, Up + L
Vegeta makes a fake moon, hurls it into the air, and floats 
up with it.  Then, a GIANT MONKEY FOOT (oh terror) CRUSHES 
THE OPPONENT DOING ABOUT HALF A BAR OF DAMAGE!!!!!

Gotenks:
Kamehameha : Down, Forward, Down, Forward + B
Gotenks fires a blue Kamehameha (not as big as Goku's) 
doing a bit less than 1/4 a bar.

Super Ghost Kamikaze: Down, Down, Left, Right + L
