So far I like writing FAQs and I might write a few more for my other favorite characters in DBZ: Budokai. I decided to write a Teen Gohan FAQ because I believe Gohan in general in underestimated to a fairly high degree. He can be a very deadly warrior if used correctly, and I want to help you people in your quest to be the second best Budokai player ever. Why second best? Because, quite frankly, I'm the best ^_^ I'm kidding, I'm kidding! Anyway, enough with the lame jokes, on with the FAQ! II. Controller Setups and Basic Controls Here is the Standard Setup the game gives you: X = Guard Square = Punch Triangle = Kick Circle = Ki (Energy) Blast R1 = P+K (Unblockable Strike) R2 = P+G (Grab or Throw Technique) L1 = Nothing L2 = Nothing Now here is my Custom Controller Setup: X = Guard Square = Punch Triangle = Kick Circle = Ki Blast R1 = P+K R2 = P+G L1 = P+K+G (Causes character to transform) L2 = P+K+G+E (Taunt-Causes opponent to lose 1 ki gauge) The only reason I customized it this way is because it's easy to deal with in Practice Mode and L1 and L2 were free to change. III. Basic Moves and Combos Punch- Any combination of only the punch button will give you a series of punches. Now we'll get into throwing in some directions P+P+P+>P = A series of punches that ends with a quick but powerful palm strike that can come in handy when you're trying to knock your opponent out of the ring. P+>P+P = Causes decent damage but lacks in recovery time. >P+P+P+P+P = A good combo that deals good damage and finishes by smacking your opponent into the air.
P = A 2-Hit combo that is good for knocking back opponents.
R1 = The same above but Punches and sends the opponent horizontally.
K = A swift combo that's useful for knocking your opponent out of the ring K+K+>K+K = A very good combo. VERY good. Only one setback- Your guard is dropped if the last kick misses, but this isn't really that important if your opponent is blocking. >K+K+K+K+K = Yes, 5 kicks in there. It finshes with a powerful kick that launches your opponent across the ring. Again, very useful for causing ring-outs. K = A short combo that sends your opponent away; however, it's only useful in the air. Overall it isn't that great. K+K+ P+P+>P+P+E Takes 1 ki gauge. Part B - The Ultimate Move Super Kamehameha - One of the coolest moves in the whole game next to Meteor Break, Goku's Super Dragon Fist (When placed twice in the capsule tray), and Burning Attack. You must be a Super Saiyan 2 to execute this: K+K+>K+K+E Pretty simple huh? This attack alone does 1,200 damage. When placed twice on the capsule tray, it does 1,440. Takes up 3 ki gauges. What more do I need to say? V. Capsules 1.0 Ability Capsules Super Saiyan - Gives you a 10% increase in attack and gives you an increase in speed. Your ki gauge must be at 4 to do this. When done, it slowly drains your ki gauge. It's actually way better to be a Super Saiyan because of the increase in stats . Takes 1 capsule slot. Super Saiyan 2 - Gives another 10% increase in attack and a boost in speed. This totals to a 20% increase in attack. Your ki gauge must be at 5 to do this. Drains ki faster than Super Saiyan. Takes 1 capsule slot. Kamehameha - See Section 4 Super Kamehameha - See Section 4 2.0 Physical Capsules Instant Killquick - A swift combo. Can be executed by pressing >P+P+K+K+E. Takes 1 ki gauge. High-Speed Hammer - I love these types of attacks. Gohan smashes the opponent into the ground and fires 8 ki blasts at them. When placed twice in the capsule tray, he will fire 16 blasts. Executed by pressing P+P+K+K+E. Takes 2 ki gauges. Jackhammer -This is your throw attack. Press G+K (R2). Doesn't use any ki and is unblockable, so it's really useful if your opponent keeps trying to guard. Fierce Ranma - This is awesome. 21 hits if placed once, 41 if twice. Executed with K+K+
