Press Square or Circle at the character selection screen. Your character may have different clothes or colors. Try this with Trunks and make him go Super Saiyan. Note: To see which costume you selected, go to change capsules screen, and highlight a character. R1 displays the Square selection and R2 displays the Circle selection.

Game Hints

Easy Wishes

I've heard of alot of people having trouble getting dragon ballz so here is the easiest way by far to the the breakthough for each character (two memory cards are required to do this). First (this is the hardest part) obtain all 7 balls. Now copy this game onto the other memory card and make your wish (if you dont like the options shenron gives you remove the card and make a selection. since there is no card the game wont save and you can get to go back and try again to get the character you want), then go to the trading option. Trade all 7 dragon balls from the second memory card to your game. Then copy that game onto the other card again. Repeat as needed. this will save the absolute insanity of gathering the balls each time and will save you many hours.

Tournament wins

When in Tournaments, instead of trying to kill the CPU opponents, just lure them close to the edge of the ring. Tap X + Down to move behind the opponent, then use a strong move to knock them out the ring.

Story mode replay

Once you have completed story mode once, you will notice that there are some people missing, except for Gohan as a super hero and Hercule who get unlocked in world championship mode. Go back to story mode and you will see what you have done instead of starting a new story. Some of the episodes will have "New" beside them. Go into those episodes to get new players and new player abilities, such as a Super Saiyan for Vegeta.

Longer combo

If you put in two capsules with a description that reads "attacks with oppressive force", the move will last longer and have more hits than usual.

Easier combos

If you are doing a combo that your having trouble with (for example, the Super Kamahamaha (K(2), Right + K, K, E), hold the D-pad and press the rest of the moves and it will put in the arrows. For example, hold Right and press K(2), K(2), E.

Game Glitches

A Spare Place In The Capsule Tray

This glitch only works with one of the characters who can use the Senzu Bean, Saiyan Heritage combo. (Goku, Kid and Teen Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, Raditz, Nappa, and Cell) Select one of the characters above and make sure that they have an empty capsule tray. Then, put down at most three capsules. Then, put down 1/3 Senzu Bean and then Saiyan Heritage. Then, put down a capsule that will take up the second to last capsule slot. Finally, replace the 1/3 Senzu Bean with a full one So you will have more place for capsules!
