The Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 wiki last edited by Deathawk on 12/14/16 10:28PM View full history

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a fighting game famous for its wacky hair and massive amounts of characters. The story mode follows the whole of the Dragon Ball Z series including the films.

Dragon Adventure

In Dragon Adventure mode, players experience every saga of the DBZ anime. By defeating opponents, players earn character unlocks and Evolution Z items. Certain sagas can only be unlocked by fulfilling specific conditions in a fight.

Evolution Z Items

Evolution Z Items are used in two ways: as equips for characters that raise stats and as character unlocks. Stat-boosting Evolution Z items can be purchased at Baba's Palace at any point during the adventure mode and equipped to a fighter before a battle. The number of equipment slots available varies from character to character but can be expanded by equipping an equipment slot + item. These Evolution Z items will level up as the character wins fights and can become very necessary in defeating the more obnoxious CPU opponents. After defeating a new character in the adventure mode the player will normally be rewarded with an Evolution Z item of that character which simply means they are unlocked in versus mode. To get some characters and alternate costumes, two of these items may have to be combined with the Z Item Fusion menu.
