Two Dragon Ball are in Buu Saga (Earth)
- The sixth ball is by the main island towards the middle by North City.
- The seventh ball is at a little sandbar island (resembles a beach) near the martial arts tournament.
In Kid Gohan's story mode, there are four Dragonballs on Earth and three Dragonballs on planet Namek. Some Dragonballs may be in the water.
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.
|Easy Wins With SS4 Goku|
Select the following capsules with Goku: Kaioken, SSJ, SSJ2, SSJ3, SSJ4, Kamehameha, and Spirit Bomb. Attack your opponent with physical blows, such as kicks and punches, and use combos to knock them back (without using any energy blast). When your opponent hits the floor, power up your energy. As they rise to their feet again, dash towards them and hit them so that they fall to the floor. Once your Ki is at maximum, transform into SSJ4 while standing as close as you can to your opponent. Notice that your opponent will be unguarded and stunned for a few seconds. As soon as you finish transforming, press L2 to turn into hyper mode. Then, press L2 again. If done correctly, you should send your opponent into the air and try to do a Spirit Bomb. However, the Spirit Bomb fades and the energy will flow into Goku. He will launch the Super Dragon Fist attack at your opponent. This combo can cause heavy damage quite early in the battle. Also, transforming SSJ4 next to your opponent then using your Forward + Circle Kamehameha attack will do almost one full bar of damage, as your opponent cannot block it.
|Easy World Tournament Wins|
This can be done with any character, but Omega Shenron is recommended. Enter the World Tournament on any difficulty setting and choose your character. At the start of each match, press Away(2) and Up/Away to one of the edges. Wait there, and when your opponent attacks, press Forward + X to warp behind them and knock them out of the ring. Sometimes you may get into a "warp battle", but if you have enough Ki, you should win.
|Effective Techniques With Broly|
Broly's large body gives you an advantage over most opponents, even the very small ones. Constantly attacking your opponent with physical and Ki attacks can cause heavy damage, but may leave you open to counter attacks. Holding R1 launches Broly's Clothesline, which sends opponents flying backwards. This is very effective in World Tournament matches. To gain an easy victory, practice doing the following: fight with your opponent using only physical attacks such as kicking and punching, increasing your Ki until you have five or more bars of energy (preferably maximum energy). Transform into the Legendary Super Saiyan when you are as close to your opponent as you can get. This will stun your opponent for a short while. As soon as you have transformed, press L2 and go into hyper mode. Your opponent should be about ready to fight again. Press L2 again before they get a chance to dodge.
Note: If your opponent dodged ultimate attack, dash towards them and stop in mid air, then dodge right or left by pressing X + Up or X + Down, as they are likely to blast or punch you while you are dashing at them. Press L2 again immediately and catch your opponent off guard. This should send your opponent into the air and launch Broly's Ultimate Attack.
Note: If you fail at any point during the previous combo, you can leave yourself open to a lot of damage, especially from a SS4 Goku. This requires practice, but you will eventually be able to land Broly's ultimate attack immediately.
|Finding Capsules And Items|
Start your flying through the sky of your world map at the bottom left hand corner, or where your impending Boss battle will start (at the red dot). Angle your triangle indicator on the world map slightly to the right, then hold Left Analog-stick Up + L1. Make sure your arrow is at a slight angle so that you will not skip over anything. When you see a scroll flash by in the top right corner of the world map, release L1 and just hold the Left Analog-stick Down until you reach the scroll that you flew past. This is also effective when searching for the Dragon Balls themselves, with or without the Dragon Radar. If after a battle on the red dot you find yourself back at the world map, start the process over again at the red dot. New items and capsules will be added to the world map. If after visiting a scroll or city you can still see it, go back to it again. You never know what you might get during your second trip around. After defeating an opponent at the battle point scroll, you can go back to it, but it will not result in as much experience points as during the first time. Before you start flying, make sure your view is towards the ground (press the Right Analog-stick Up); sometimes you can see items (sparkling flashes of light).
Use the following trick to find the Dragon Balls easily. Go into Flying Burst mode (Left Analog-stick Up + hold L1) with the Dragon Radar on the screen (use Triangle). Zoom around the screen with a slight angle on the Right Analog-stick. Look at the Dragon Radar, and when you see an orange dot on it, stop. Turn around and fly (not on Fly Burst mode) and look around until you see an orange dot and land there.
|Frieza's Space Ship|
To unlock Frieza'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.
Defeat Frieza with Goku in Dragon Universe mode to unlock Frieza.
