How 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

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.

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

How To Get GT. Sayaman

Cheat about The tower

When you are up on the tower with some powerful use their special attack. Like super Kameha or spirit bomb or something like that. When you use it he tower will be blasted out the sky. You will also be standing in a huge crater in the ground.

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.

Neat Thing About Kami's Lookout.

When ever you go to Kami's lookout go with either Goku or Gohan. Than with Goku transform into King Kai Fist x2,5,10. Use Spirit Bomb and the whole lookout will be destroyed and you will be in a huge crater. Same with Gohan except transform into ss2 then use Super Kamehameha.

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

message: 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. You will have your opponents high life and ki and your opponent will have your low one. I have won all of tournament mode with this move. I got 50,000 zenie and got a red capsule which had Super Trunks 2. So do this trick always.

Spirit Bomb

You can do this only with goku and cell!!!!!!!! With cell you go to perfect form and have more than 3 ki.Then if you are on the left side of the screen you press P Left& P Left& P & K & O.If your on the right side of the screen you press P Right & P Right & P & K & O!!! For Goku you have to get the skill and put it under custom mode then when you pick your player pick goku and go to custom mode then when you play you need to be either king kai fist 2,5, or 10! Then if your on the left side of the screen press P Left & P & P & K & O! If your on the right side of the screen press P Left & P & P & K & O!

Tip: You can only do spirit bomb with cell if your in Perfect form.You can not do the spirit bomb with goku as a super saiyan! You can only do it with goku as king kai fist 2,5,or 10 !!

Easy way to get all DragonBalls

You can collect all 7 DragonBalls during the game, They cost 8000 Zenie at Mr. Popo's Shop. The are listed under Recomended and you can buy them over and over. Just keep going in and out of Mr. Popo's shop until it shows a black capsule by the word recommended and it will say like '1-7 star DragonBall'. That saves you from going to recommended and buying and buying till it pops up a DragonBall capsule.

SS4 Goku

Beat tournament mode with all characters on advanced then hold select + X while selecting goku he should power up to ss4 but he is only as strong as a normal ss but it is still cool.

Breakthrough Tip

When all 7 dragonballs are collected you summon shenron(as you should know already)and you get to choose between 3 characters to give breakthrough too.If you dont want any of those characters to have it,reset your PS2 and go back into it.To get all 7 dragonballs,go in and out of "edit skills" until a dragonball comes up at recommended,and you should have no problom getting all 7. Note:It does take a while for the dragonballs to show up so you have to have patience for this.

Info submitted by Matt Bloomer on Tuesday, December 10, 2002 at 12:58:28

Better Breakthrough Tip

When you call Shenron and are at the point of the three choices don’t wish yet. Remove the memory card and wish (it doesn’t matter who because it will say that there is no memory card). When asked to retry say no. You will be taken back to call Shenron again. Repeat until the fighter of choice appears in the list then re-insert the memory card and it will be saved.
