3) Character Introduction : SSJ2 Gogeta  (Special Credit to ssj2 Gogeta)      
 G4

SSJ2 Gogeta is born in movie 12 when Goku and Vegeta fuse. When someone dies
their soul (little white cloud type things) goes into purification that
cleanses all the evil out of it so the soul can be re-used for someone else.
There was a young boy named Oni who was in charge of switching the tanks
when one of them would get full of evil energy (represented by purple liquid).
He started goofing off and one of the full tanks exploded causing the entire
purification tank to explode as well releasing all the evil energy. This energy
surrounded Oni thus creating Janemba, a big fat yellow monster who jumps around
speaking his name. Goku and Pikkon are fighting in the other world tournament
when they are called to assist in destroying him. The entire other world is
now trapped in this sort of glass thing, Pikkon attempts to break the glass
while Goku fights Janemba in hell. Goku proves to be no match for Janemba
until he transforms to SSJ3 and cuts him in half with a double energy wave
attack thing, this causes Janemba to transform to a regular size devilish
looking creature with a sword. Even in SSJ3 form, Goku is no match for
Janemba's new form, after getting hit with a sword attack he reverts back to
base. Vegeta then shows up and begins fighting Janemba, he doesn't do any
better than Goku so they go hide. Janemba finds them and launches mini energy
spikes at them, Goku then suggests fusion to Vegeta who at first refuses but
then agrees. Goku shows him the steps to perform fusion. They decide to give it
a go but instead of stretching out his forefinger Vegeta kept a closed fist
which caused Fat Gogeta to be created (the kai's called him veku). When they
unfuse King Kai tells them what went wrong, Pikkon arrives and distracts
Janemba so they can perform fusion once more, the fusion is succesful and
Gogeta appeared as a SSJ2 right away. He punched and kicked Janemba a couple of
times then wasted no more time and charged his Soul Punisher attack, he fired it
at Janemba and that was the end of that. Once the smoke cleared Oni appeared
apparently having no memory of what happened. As a matter of interest, the dead
also roamed the Earth including Frieza (which Gohan destroyed easily),
a glimpse of Bojack and the Ginyu Force. Even Hitler and his army appeared
but Gotenks took care of them.

                 SSJ4 Gogeta     :              G5

Gogeta is the DBGT fusion of Goku and Vegeta (Vegito is the DBZ fusion) using
 regular fusion (Vegito used Potara fusion, but they seperated when they went
 inside Buu). They fused so that they would be able to defeat Omega Shenron,
 the last Shadow Dragon. They fused when Goku and Vegeta were in SSJ4 so in
 DBGT Gogeta is automatically transformed into SSJ4. Gogeta has Green eyes and
 Red hair. He has a brown Tail and wears a cool black and orange vest . An
 upper part of his stomach is not covered by the vest. Goku is the dominant
 character in the Fusion and unlike Vegeto,  Gogeta gets right to the point in
 the battle.  They were easily beating Omega Shenron and were about to finish
 him off when they unfused. Normal fusion lasts for 30 minutes, but because of
 the power of SSJ4 it lasted only 10 minutes. Goku then went back to Kid Base
 and eventually defeated Omega Shenron using a Spirit Bomb with energy from all
 over the Universe. Then Shenron came, gave Goku one more wish and Goku 
travelled with Shenron.  Goku absorbed the Dragon Balls, and no one saw him
 again, apart from Pan at a future World Martial Arts Tournament. Then DBGT
 ended.

4) How to Unlock :

SSJ2 Gogeta for Goku  :             G6

You must have completed Goku's DU once. Play through it again, and get up to
 the point where Gohan has been absorbed by Super Buu and Goku is looking for
 someone to fuse with using the Potara Earrings. After the cutscene where Gohan
 has been absorbed, look around the area where Goku is. You should see a "???"
 sign. This will start a converstation where Goku is about to fuse with Hercule
, but then senses Vegeta's energy. After the scene, fly towards the red dot, 
but don't fight Super Buu. Around the area with the Red Dot should be another
 "???" sign. This will start a conversation with Tien. Then turn about 45 
degress clockwise, and find a sign that reads "mountains". This will start a 
conversation with Kabitoshin where he says that he can sense a greater energy 
than Buu. Now fight Super Buu, and after the battle inside Buu's body, Vegeta 
will hold Buu off so that Goku can see what the mysterious force is.  Go to 
the Red Dot, and fight Broly. After the battle. you will get a piece of 
paper telling to go to the World Martial Arts Tournament. Defeat Gotenks, and 
you will recieve the SSJ2 Gogeta Capsule for Goku.

SSJ2 Gogeta for Vegeta  :               G7

It is a similar process for Vegeta's capsule. Complete his DU and play through
 it again up to the Buu Saga where Gohan is absorbed. Before fighting Super Buu
, go to the island covered in snow and you will have the same conversation with
 Kabitoshin. Then go and fight Buu and you will eventually fight Broly. Once
 you have defeated him you will get a piece of paper telling you to go to the
 World Martial Arts Tournament. Go there, and you will fight Gotenks. Defeat 
him and you will recieve the SSJ2 Gogeta Capsule for Vegeta.

SSJ4 Gogeta for Goku  :             G8

You must have beaten Goku's DU at least once and must have collected Goku's 
SSJ4 Capsule (The Breakthrough will not count).  After you have done it, repeat
 the process to unlock SSJ2 Gogeta for Goku. After you have defeated Gotenks, 
the Shadow Dragons will come out of the Dragon Balls (I don't think you have 
to collect all of the Dragon Balls because I had collected 6 Dragon Balls when 
I was doing this and I was able to do it), and you will have to fight Omega 
Shenron (The one with all of the Dragon Balls obsorbed). SSJ4 Vegeta will 
come, and you will fuse with him to make SSJ4 Gogeta. Defeat Omega Shenron 
(In a easy battle because of the power of SSJ4 Gogeta), and you will recieve
 the SSJ4 Gogeta Capsule for Goku.

SSJ4 Gogeta for Vegeta  :            G9

You must have collected Vegeta's SSJ4 Capsule (Breakthrough will not count) 
and have completed Vegeta's DU at least once. After you have done it, repeat
 the process to unlock SSJ2 Gogeta for Vegeta. After you have defeated Gotenks,
 the Shadow Dragons will come out of the Dragon Balls (I don't think you have 
to collect all of the Dragon Balls because I had collected 6 Dragon Balls when
 I was doing this and I was able to do it), and you will have to fight 
Omega Shenron (The one with all of the Dragon Balls obsorbed). SSJ4 Goku
 will come, and you will fuse with him to make SSJ4 Gogeta. Defeat 
Omega Shenron (In a easy battle because of the power of SSJ4 Gogeta), 
and you will recieve the SSJ4 Gogeta Capsule for Vegeta.

5) Moves and Stats

6) Frequently Asked Questions :                 G14

1) What modes can he be used in?
A=  The Gogeta capsule can be used in Dragon Universe as a storyline event, 
the Cell Games World Tournament, Practice, Duel and Dragon Arena modes.

2) Is Gogeta the best character?
A= He has the strongest attack power and the strongest moves in the game, but 
whether or not he is the best character in the game is a matter of opinion.

3) Why is Gogeta a capsule and not a character?
A= Probably because if Gogeta was a character, he would have unlimited time
 and you would be able to use him in every mode. You could just select him 
in World Tournament, and be practically invincible. Plus, if you play 
multiplayer with someone, there would be arguments about who woulld be Gogeta
 because then he would be  practically invincinle. Plus, if he is a capsule,
 you can't use him all of the time and when you use him there is limited time
 so there is a sort of risk doing it, because if you are about to finish off
 your opponent and you unfuse, your opponent can get a free hit on you.

4) Is the alternative costume SSJ5?
A= No, it is not SSJ5. It might look like it but its just a couple of different
 colors.
