To unlock the Cell Games, defeat Cell when he breaks in the Dragon Arena. | Submitted by KenFougere

The cell games tournament is the final tournament you can get in the game. You can get it by defeating cell when he breaks in in dragon arena. The best part is you can use fusions and absorption in this tournament. It has 5 rounds and the com is on hard difficulty. Enjoy. | Submitted by Ranjev

Defeat Cell when he has "broken in" in Dragon Arena.

To get Sibaman, defeat Nappa when he breaks in Dragon Arena. Same for Cell Jr., except defeat Picollo when he breaks in. | Submitted by KenFougere

At the level select press circle and you will get the destroyed version of a stage. (Doesn't work on the levels inside buu,world tournament arena and the hyporvolic time chamber.)

To access a charcter's different outfits, press left on the D-pad before selecting your character.

To sidestep to avoid a death move or a dash attack, press down and X when the move is used or just before the enemy is about to attack. This will mean that you get a small time to ether fire a death move of your own back to to do a combo attack. To duck and bob to avoid enemy hits and to look cool at the same time, tap the X button when a blow is about to be landed.

Keep looking all around the map as soon as you start. Pick a point and go in a small angle so that you move out just a little bit at a time. You will see a marker appear with "?????". This may take some time, and you may find some money or capsules, but you will find the Dragon Radar along with two Dragon Balls in the first area. Do the same type of search pattern on each area to find everything; even places to fight and level up, along with friends who will give you skills and even a level up or two.

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.

First choose goku in DU mode and get all the dragon balls before you fight majin buu. Then continue the story till you fight Broly. Then go to the world tournament to get Gogeta. | Submitted by Ranjev

To defeat the z modes easily start DU and play it till your last with very easy level. Before your last match turn your level to z and then beat the final fight and you will complete the game on z mode.

For this you must have a character that knows an ultimate attack (like "Big Bang" or "Spirit Bomb"). Also, this is much easier to do if you can get their baselineki guage the same or higher than the cost of the attack. For example: if you want Goku to use the "Sirit Bomb"(which is actually "Sper Dragon Fist"), which costs 5 ki guages to use, get Goku to SS3 or SS4. Then, just stay alive until your opponent goes into hyper mode and keep flying backwards so you don't get hit (which you should almost always do when your opponent is in hyper mode) until they are right about to exit hyper mode. That is when you enter hyper mode and because they cannot move for about 4 seconds, you have just enough time to use your ultimate attack. NOTE: in case you don't know what the basline ki guage is, it is the point where you will automatically recover ki, also the bars will be bigger than usual and will recover faster when you charge your ki by yourself. | Submitted by Jonathan

Level - Code

Z Mode ( Goku's Wish ) - Beat Dragon Universe on Very Hard once
Z2 Mode ( The Path to Power ) - Beat Dragon Universe on Z Mode once
Z3 Mode ( Endless Path to Power ) - Beat Dragon Universe on Z2 Mode once

First, when you get up to Buu Saga, goto the Plains near Goku's House. After going there, fight Gohan as Majin Vegeta. After you finished fighting him, keep going through the red parts of the map until you hit up to Kid Buu. Let Kid Buu beat you, then put No in the Continue screen. After that fly a bit back, and you'll see 2 reds touching eachother. Go push X on the left one, and you can fight Buu agian, but when you win, you can fight Broly.

To unlock Freiza's space Ship, a move that is the same as a Full Senzu Bean that only Frieza can use , look closely at the map in the second level (with Frieza and the Ginyu Force). You will see a little island in the middle of the map. Go to it and get the item, which is Frieza's Space Ship.

Press Circle Instead Of Square To Get The Destroyed Version Of A Stage.

To get Omega Shenron,(The Real Way!) put it on very hard mode and play as Goku, then get to the part when Gohan is absorbed by Buu. Then go to the middle part of the middle yellowpart on the map. It should say "Mountains". Press X and Supreme Kai should talk about "Wicked Magic". (Broly) Then continue on with your journey. Instead of K. Buu, you will fight Broly. Then you'll get the invitation from Gotenks. Before you fight, the dot will be at West City. Omega Shenron will talk, then fight you. you'll start to fight as Gogeta. After that, fight Gotenks.
(TIP, Dragon Turnback: Once you get Whirlingspin and Dragonthunder and the enemy is right in front of you, use Dragonthunder, then Whirlingspin, the enemy should bounce to you, then bounce back.) | Submitted by KenFougere

To get Hurcule, you have to Piccolo's DU Mode. Get to the part where you have to fight Super Buu. Don't go there yet. Instead,go to the Western Desert. Search there until it says "Desert". Land there. you should talk to Hurcule. Then go to Hurcule City. You should talk to Videl. After that, you should get Hurcule. | Submitted by KenFougere

Start two player or practice fighting mode with player 1 as Goku and the second player can be anybody. Then after the word "Fight!" leaves screen don't press any buttons on either controllers. Wait about 8-10 minutes and Goku should stare blankly into the screen.

During practice mode (training) press select and your energy will be at max and again for min (Note: If transformed it will just go up) | Submitted by Chris

These are located in Goku's Dragon universe. All 3 membership cards can be found on an island, just north of the Golden-Gate looking bridge. After going through Goku's Dragon Universe a few times, all 3 will be there to be collected.

When you unlock Uub (kill Kid Buu using the Spirit Bomb) he only has to fight 3 characters to end his game (you still get credit when fighting on super hard, Z, Z2, and Z3). However, dont collect the dragonballs after the first time you beat DU otherwise you will have to fight Omega Shrenron which is nearly impossible to do in any of the Z modes.

During the load screen if you rotate the stick things or press many buttons saibamen will grow and if you grow enough a red one will appear.

The cards can either be bought in the shop after you spend a certain amount there, or found in Dragon Universe by a character of high enough level. In DU, the cards appear at the same place for each character every time. For Goku, (probably the easiest character to get them with) they appear on an island just West-Northwest of the main continent. It doesn't matter how many times you go through DU, it is your character level that matters.

Silver Membership Card Character Lvl 2+, or spend 1,500 zenie in shop or have budokai 2 save.
Gold Membership Card Character Lvl 15+, or spend 100,000 zenie in shop.
Black Membership Card Character Lvl 30+, or spend 250,000 zenie in shop.

Go to Dragon Arena, pick your Saibamen. Then fight the highest level Yamcha you can fight. If you selfdestruct on him he will automaticly die as he does in the series.

Beat Dragon Universe with one of the 11 characters on the Z 3 difficulty setting.

You cannot buy the next tournament in line even if you beat the previous one unless you have the required amount of characters. Novice requires 8, i think you start off with that many anyways. Adept requires 16, playing through dragon Universe with Goku should get you about 8. Advanced requires 32, almost all of the characters in the game are required, and for some reason doubles and triples of the same characters are counted as seperate people ( kid Gohan, teen, and adult, as well as the Buus and the 2 Trunks'). NOTE: someone gave a list of how to get the characters, which although is very useful, is not 100% acurrate. For example, you do not have to defeat Broly twice to get him, although in some circumstances like the diffuculty level, you might. And Videl ccan be found by playing Gohan and looking on one of the islands at the south end of the map. It will not be a red dot and I'm not sure when you get her except it's at the very beginning. You will know you will get her because you will be talking to Yajerobi. | Submitted by Jonathan
