Gillt67.

Alternate costumes:
When fighting in training or duel modes, you can change your character's costume by pressing Square so that you will turn to the question mark. Then, press X to choose a character. They will have different costumes. For example, Piccolo will look like Nail and Gohan will fight in his father's costume.
michiel schoondergang.

To change costumes, go to the character and press Up or Down. You will be able to select a different costumes. Some characters may have three choices but most have only two.
Matthewb22.

Alternate stage:
When you go into the arena selection screen and have highlighted the stage you want to fight at, press Triangle. The stage will be selected, and you will go to a different arena. Red Ribbon Base is the only arena that is actually in a different area. All the other stages, except for Planet Namek, the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and the Kai's planet (the one with the sword stuck in the hill) are a different time of day (either dusk or night, depending on the stage).

Control opening screen:
Rotate the Right Analog-stick to spin Master Roshi. Press the Left Analog-stick to change his position on the screen.

When the loading screen appears and you see Master Roshi on a hover disc, quickly rotate the Right Analog-stick to control the speed and the Left Analog-stick to control the movement.
Channing.

When you see Master Roshi spinning in the opening/loading screen, you can press R1, R2, L1, L2 instead to spin him You can still control him with the Left Analog-stick. Note: This does not work when you perform a special move such as Continuous Kamehameha.
Kevin Klyde.

Use the following trick to make Master Roshi fly. Note: It requires a controller with an auto-fire features. Set the auto-fire to L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 and use it to make Master Roshi spin fast enough to fly. You can also move him around with the Left Analog-stick.
Channing.

To make Master Roshi fly, rotate the Right Analog-stick with your palm very quickly. If you are fast enough, you can also use R1, R2, L1, L2. Slow down the spinning to make him hover.
Kevin Klyde.

Hint: Easy transformation:
Instead of having to press the P + K + G, press R1 + R2 to transform. This works with all characters who transform in any way. This can be very useful if you want to knock the guard off your opponent while standing next to them.
Gillt67.

Go to options menu and set one of the shoulder buttons(L1, L2, R1, R2) to P + K + G. By doing this, you only have to press one button.
ryan tracey.

Hint: Easier Fusion:
When doing Fusion (Gotenks), Spirit Ball Attack (Yamcha), and Burning Slash (Trunks), pause game play when the button combo is halfway up the screen. Normally you cannot pause game play when it is totally on the screen. Memorize the button combo, then press Start again and execute it.
Fox345Beam.

Even though the skill sheet tells you to use Square(2), Triangle(2), Circle to use Fusion, use Square(2), Triangle, Circle instead. It is almost impossible to do Fusion following the game's directions. If you press Triangle(2), more often than not the character will do some sort of combination kick (even though the capsule appears). This trick also works for some special/signature moves.
c_s_h_88.

Hint: Taunt:
Press Triangle + Square + Circle + X and your character will do a taunt (a pose and some trash talking).
c_s_h_88.

Hint: Easy capsules:
Select the Capsule Skill Shop by pressing X. You will usually see Bulma in the lower right side usually. When there, hold R1 + R2 + L1. This will sometimes cause the selector to highlight a capsule, but it does not matter if it does not. While still holding R1 + R2 + L1, press Triangle(2) to exit the Capsule Select window. This will randomly give you one free capsule. That means that it can still give you one that you already have, so you must repeat the trick a few more times to get a new capsule. If your percentage is very low, like in the single digits to the teens, you should see a change in the percentage immediately. If it is over 50%, it probably will not change the first time you do the trick. Thus, you must do it a few more times. This trick will give you breakthroughs, stages, moves, new outfits for bulma, etc.
Jose De La Herran.

Note: You must go to "Edit Capsules" and edit any one of your characters before going to the main menu, or you will have to start where you last saved.
mile2005.

Use the following trick to get easy double capsules. Go to the skill store and look for the capsule that you want two of. Buy it (even if it does not say "New"). Then, if you did not have it before you must leave and buy it again. Put it on your character twice. Note: This only works for red and blue capsules. It does not work for green or black capsules.
Martin Sweeny.

Go to the Skill Shop (Bulma's Shop). If you cannot find your capsule there, go back and go to the shop again. Keep doing this until you find what you need.
Aaron Sidhu.

Hint: Get all Breakthrough Capsules:
To get all Breakthrough Capsules, complete Advanced Tournament with a good character (to get all the good side breakthroughs), then complete it with an evil character to get theirs. Note: You may have to complete every tournament level with a good and an evil character.
Kevin Thomas.

Hint: Golden Capsule on level 1:
On the first level, where you have to get to the Dragonball before Raditz and Nappa, defeat all the Saibamen that pop up until a red one appears. Fight that one and win. You should get a new capsule for Hercule. Equip the capsule, and whenever Hercule's health drops below one sixth he will now receive a boost of energy. This may require a few attempts
Matt Wingfield.

Hint: Easy money:
On the last level where you fight Kid Buu, when you start dig (press Square) until a question mark appears over your head. Note: You can use any character.
robin.

Dig around in the final stage of Dragonworld. Have Sparking!-!!! as your custom character. You will gain twice as much as usual from just having one of them.
John Myers.

In Babidi's Spaceship. go to stage 1 and select Dr. Gero. Put on the Life Drain skill and Perpetual Energy. Also, set Life Drain twice then put on a guard or attack power-up. Keep using Life Drain. If you charge it all the way, you should kill your opponent instantly. You will not lose any health. Go against someone large and slow, such as Nappa or Android 16, so that you can hit them easier. You can easily kill them 50 to 100 times, getting between 1,000 to 2,000 Killi.
James Johnson.

In Babidi's Spaceship, do the following trick on stage 2 where you must hold out as long as possible. Choose Frieza with Frieza's Spaceship, Medical Machine, and any other defense boosters you have (the best armor style you can fit). Choose Hercule for an opponent, in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber level. Simply dodge back repeatedly. Because Hercule has no ranged attacks, he must chase you. Even when he catches you and lands a hit, you can usually escape after only one hit, and he will not do much damage. You can keep this up for a very long time, and when he finally does wear you down the spaceship will fully revive you and make you stronger. It is possible to go over 3,000 seconds by doing this, which gives a huge amount of Killi.
Lord Nuke.

Hint: Silver Card:
Buy all red capsules that you can get at the beginning. Alternately, have a saved game from the original Dragon Ball Z: Budokai on your memory card.
SPB.

Hint: Gold Card:
Buy all the red capsules that you can get with the Silver Card.
SPB.

Hint: Black Card:
Buy all the red capsules that you can get with the Gold Card.
SPB.

Hint: Kibitoshin:
In Dragon World, do not take the Potara Earrings from the Supreme Kai to fuse into Vegito. Complete the game without taking them.
Eddie Higginbotham.

Hint: Bulma's costume:
To get Bulma's costumes, get all the Dragon Balls. Then, summon the dragon. If you are lucky, you can get Bulma's costumes. Bulma's costume will change the way that Bulma appears in the capsule shop.
Uvinapotter.

Hint: Make Bulma move in the shop:
Press R2 and she will move.
Cool113.

Hint: Restore health during fight:
Note: This trick requires two players and Babidi's Spaceship. First, go to Babidi's Spaceship. When asked how many players are playing, select "2P". One of the mini-games involves locking your Ki and Health together. Select that game. You can now recharge your health during a fight. Note: Since this trick locks your Ki and Health together, you can now lose health by using any Ki-draining special attack.
RappinDon.

Hint: Wishes:
When you get all seven Dragonballs you get one wish. Do not buy Bulma's costumes. Instead, you should buy Breakthrough, Fusion, and Potera capsules. Breakthrough capsules take all seven slots but give every move for that person. Others allow secret fusions between people.
Mtybug.

Use the following trick to get all the wishes. At the very end when you must defeat Kid Buu you will get one wish after the credits by obtaining all seven Dragon Balls. Before you defea Kid Buu, save the game and exit. Then, copy the saved game file for the game onto another memory card. Start the game again and defeat Kid Buu (again) and get another wish. When done, copy or transfer the capsule that you obtained.
sTrEEtCroSSUps.

Hint: Picking up a Dragon Ball:
To pick up a Dragon Ball after it is in the center of the Dragon Ball Radar, just select the character that is on top of the Dragon Ball and press Square.

Hint: Senzu Bean:
Search at the location where Kid Buu starts in Dragon World. You will get a rare capsule. Search again on the same location and you will get Senzu Bean. Note: There is no 1/2 Senzu Bean.
Zé Rafael.

Hint: Babidi's Spaceship: Easy wins:
To win and get some skills from Babidi's spaceship, try the following:

Put a Senzu Bean on a custom character. Include the best armor they have. Then, go to Babidi's Spaceship on level 2. Select the custom character, then guard and dodge the attacks. When you die, the Senzu Bean will be used and you will have full health. Then, guard and dodge. You will easily win Kili by doing this, and collect the Majin Buu capsules, Dabura, Skills, etc.
MIMOZA RREDHI.
Put a Senzu Bean on a custom character. Also use Gero's Perpetual Energy and a favorite death move. Go to level 1 on Babidi's Spaceship and keep doing the death move. Be careful not to lose any health. When you die, the Senzu Bean will be used and you will be resurrected. Then, continue to fight and do the death move repeatedly. If they start to dodge, then try fighting them.
MIMOZA RREDHI.
Use Yamcha on level 3. Make sure he has Wolf Fang Fist. Keep doing Wolf Fang Fist and they will easily get hit by you if you activate the move and keep pressing E. This should get you a lot of Kili.
MIMOZA RREDHI.
Use this in the stage where you fight enemies until you die. Attach Dr. Gero's Perpetual Energy Capsule to any character with a strong energy attack, such as Trunks or Kid Buu. You can keep pressing the button for the attack repeatedly without losing any Ki. However, you cannot transform during the battle. This also works well with a Senzu Bean.
Go to level 2 and pick a character, then edit skills. If you have it, get Mysterious Vest. If not, use another guard power-up. Next, pick Senzu Bean. If you put on Mysterious Vest you should not have any more room. Then, start the fight. When you lose your first bar, your character will use Senzu Bean and recharge to full health in the green. Note: Do not use your capsule space for attacks, this is endurance.
james phillips.
Note: This trick requires a controller with an auto-fire feature. Go to the game where you have to deflect the Ki blast back and forth. Before the round starts, take one jump back, set X to auto-fire, then shoot and hold X. This should give you 193 hits in the round and result in about 600 Kili.
Sparda651.
Use Vegeta with Final Explosion and keep doing it as long as possible. Note: You must be very good at doing Final Explosion; if you do not get it to a full bar the level is over.
Joe Bartoes.
To get an easy win and quick death in the first section, equip Goku with the Warp Kamehameha. Then, go to the first choice in Babidi's Spaceship. When the battle starts, do this combo: backwards punch, backwards punch, then Warp Kamehameha. If you hit your opponent with all attacks, he will have been defeated and you will start the next round.
tngbot3.

Hint: Babidi's Spaceship: Easy Kili:
Go to Babidi's Spaceship and select one player and stage 2. Choose Vegeta and go to "Edit Skills". Take out whatever skills he currently has and replace them with Bulma's Armor and a Senzu Bean. Then, select custom Vegeta. Next, select Hercule to be your opponent. Go anywhere you want, but somewhere simple with nothing in the way like the Hyperbolic Time Chamber is recommended. Then, block the entire time. You can easily last 500 seconds, and get over 1000 Kili. Repeat this until your meter is full.
Duncan Ray.

Hint: Babidi's Spaceship: Restore health:
On Babidi's Spaceship, change into Captain Ginyu and your opponent's character. Go to number 1, and when your health gets into the red, switch bodies. Then, kill your regular body. After that, switch back and your health will be back in the green.
Bryan D..

Hint: Red Ribbon Base: Activate Red Ribbon Robot:
Go to the Red Ribbon Base and knock your opponent into one of the generators. A robot will fly out from the ceiling and launch missiles. This will cause 400 points of damage to your opponent. Knock your opponent through the large bay doors to fight outside.
Aaron Smith.

Hint: Dubura: Recommended moves:
ladybug.

Evil Blast x2
Demonic Will
Dubura's Sword
Hell Blade Rushx2
Hell Blitz

Hint: Dragon World: Extra move turnips:
In Dragon World mode, there are extra move turnips that allow you to move two spaces instead of one. In level 2, where Frieza starts the level is a hexagon shape, the move turnip is located at the top of the hexagon. In level 4, move downward and diagonal one space from where Goku starts and search there. In level 7, the move turnip is where your ally starts. Have them check the area. In level 9, it is where Goku starts from. Just have him search there.
andy mcnash.

Hint: Dragon World: Faster wins:
Play as Goku and give him the following skills:

King Kai Fist x20
Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan 2
Super Saiyan 3
Saiyan Spirit
Warp Kamehameha
Warp Kamehameha

In every fight you can just power up to 5 Energy Levels, Transform, and press P(2), K(2), Circle. If they livem you will only need 3 Energy Levels to do it once more.
Kenthekool.

Hint: Switching To Goten or Kid Trunks in a duel:
Equip Goten or Kid Trunks with the Fusion. While you are fighting, press P + K + G (Triangle + Square + X). You will have all of their moves as if you chose that character at the start. Note: No transformation is possible.
Alex Peacher.

Hint: Easy wins:
Get a Viral Heart Disease Skill and put it on for support. Then, get a Vaccine to not make your Power decrease, but your opponent's will. Just block until their health is in the orange. You should now be able to defeat them.
Flash316.

When you initiate Burst mode in battle, instead of just randomly pressing buttons (as the game suggests), use the palm of your hand to rotate both Analog-sticks either clockwise or counter-clockwise, depending on which is more comfortable for you. Note: For optimal performance, use your dominant hand (if you are right-handed, use your right hand; and if left-handed, use your left).
C Bell.

Go to edit skills and choose any character. Then put Viral Heart Disease, Vaccine, and Senzu Bean. You will have one space remaining to put anything desired. If you die even if using Viral Heart Disease and Vaccine, you always have the Senzu Bean.
Fishingbaj.

When your opponent uses his special that does not need to be in contact with you (such as Destructo Disc), if you are far enough away you can press Down + X to dodge the attack, and then press Over + Circle to shoot your special, which almost always hits them.
Kurt Lehrke.

When fighting a short opponent, kick them into the air. You will be able hit and kick them as if you were fighting Cell or someone similar.
John Winters.

To defeat any villain easier (especially Fat Buu, Super Buu, and Kid Buu), choose any character and go to the skill sheet. Add some good Ki attacks then choose the Vital Heart Disease. The opponent's health will slowly decrease. The best partners against Kid Buu are Gohan and Trunks. Use Gohan until Kid Buu does not let up. On the last health block, use Trunks. Also, the character that defeats Kid Buu will receive the best attack one would need with that person.
Michael Boyd.

Hint: Easy characters:
To unlock the characters easily, try to complete the Dragon World (the real game). About every time you defeat a character, you will unlock the person that you were battling against.
SuperSonic309.

Hint: All characters:
Successfully complete novice and adept modes in tournament and save the game to a memory card. Get a different memory card with no file from the game. Complete story mode and go to Mr. Popo's shop. Put the memory cards in slots one and two. Trade the Dragon Ball from the new saved file on memory card two to memory card one. Remove both memory cards. Put the memory card that was in slot two into slot one. You will now have all the characters from the saved game file on memory card one.
LTJohnson105.

Hint: Unlock everything:
This trick requires two memory cards. Put in memory card A in slot one. Start a new game, and enable the normal unlock everything code until you get to 99%, and save. Then, switch memory cards and start a new game again. Enable the hidden capsule code twice to get two hidden capsules. Insert memory card A, and trade one of the hidden skills. Then, earn or cheat for all other skills on memory card B. You should now have two games with everything unlocked.
Micki95.

Hint: Acquiring Super Saiyan:
Defeat Android 17 (the girl android) with a Saiyan to acquire Super Saiyan with that character. This works with any Saiyan. This works with any Saiyan but only in Dragon Ball mode.
Simran Mann.

Hint: Continue customizing character:
When on Stage 2 on Babidi's ship, you can still customize your character. Before you continue with Stage 2, add a full Senzu Bean onto you customized character. After your one bar of life is gone you will use the Senzu Bean and regain three full bars of life, extending the time that you can "endure your opponent's attacks".
Derrick Manley.

Hint: Gain everyone's Devastation move:
At the end of Dragon World, defeat Kid Buu With the desired character to gain their devastation move. For example, Goku's Super Spirit Bomb, Vegeta's Big Bang Attack, Gohan's Super Kamehemehe, etc.
LimitBreaker87.

James M Gordon.

King Kai Fist x20
Super Saiyan
Warp Kamehameaha
Kamehameaha
Spirit Bomb
Continuous Kamehameaha
Meditation
(You should not have other levels of SS because they take up too much room)

Use the following setup. Charge until you have five full capsule charge things, then press K(2), Right, K(2), E. Try to rotate the Left Analog-stick and Right Analog-stick faster than your opponent and you will be Super Saiyan and deal 1,980 damage. If your opponent is still up, use Spirit Bomb (Left, P, P(2), K, E).
Martin Sweeny.

King Kai Fist x20
Super Saiyan
Super Spirit Ball
Super Spirit Ball
Spirit Ball
Spirit Ball
Kamehameha

Use the following setup. Start off with the basic P(4), E for Kamehameha. Double step backward, and the opponent will probably send a blast attack (Kamehameha, Galic Gun, etc.). Dodge it and use a plain Kamehameha attack. Now just use stronger punch attacks (Right, P(4); or Right, K(4); or P + K). Use this time to power-up to about four Ki levels and become Super Saiyan 2, and use the Warp Kamehameha attack. Then, power-up again and use that attack once more. If this did not finish them off, a few punches with a Kamehameha should do the trick.
Vidiogamer64.

King Kai Fist x20 (needed to turn Super Saiyan)
Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan 2 (boosts all attacks greatly)
Kamehameha (use when opponent's health is down or after dodging blast attack)
Warp Kamehameha
Warp Kamehameha
Angel's Halo (while in Super Saiyan 2, or King Kai Fist, Ki does not drop)

Hint: Goku: Super Saiyan 2:
After defeating the Supreme Kai on the Supreme Kai planet, fight Vegeta and kill him to receive the Super Saiyan 2 capsule for Goku. You need four Ki bars to transform into Super Saiyan 2.
Alex Morrison and X_Zombie_X.

Hint: Gokule: Change appearance:
First get the Gokule capsule for either Goku or Hercule. Then, before selecting either character, first change the appearance to their alternate costume by pressing Up or Down. Next, select the character along with the capsule. When you use the fusion and it is successful, Gokule will appear differently. You can do with other fusions, but their costume will only change.
prime182.

Hint: Goten: Immortal:
On the "5" place, chose Kid Trunks and Goten as allies. Have Goten and Trunks stand at the same location. They will do the spin power-up and Goten will get +30 defense and trunks will get +30 attack. There are two more +20 armors on the lower area (the area where you start). Pick those up and he will be at 210 defense. Then, equip Goten with Mysterious Vest and he will not be able to be hurt, and you will get all "Perfects", unless you fight on a location that drains your health.
SDForgie.

Hint: Goten: Easy wins:
Unlock Mysterious Vest and Super Holy Water. Equip them and something else to Goten. Every time in Dragon World, get Goten as an ally. Have Goten and Goku stand next to each other. Then, try to get an armor thing or two. If you get two worth +20%, you will be almost invincible.
firepower68.

Hint: Goku: Extra defense:
Put the following in the capsule slots: Mysterious Vest, Saiyan Spirit, Ki Flash (optional), and Kamekameha (optional). You will not need to block because you will have 175% defense.
gamekid90.

Note: This also works for Hercule. Put the following in the capsule slots: Saiyin Spirit (or Hercule's False Courage), Miracle Power (or Kings Confidence), and the Study Vest (World Champion Vest). If Super Buu gets the Tien and Yamcha Absorption, you will be invincible.
gamekid90.

Hint Great Saiyaman: Ki returns:
Enter practice mode as Great Saiyaman facing and Krillin (CPU). Have Great Saiyaman do a Justice Flash. After you charge up the blasts, press Select three or four times. His Ki energy will be gone, then it will reappear and come back again.

Hint: Kid Trunks: Recommended moves:
KngdmHrts1.

Double Buster x2 (one slot each)
Potential (two slots)
Mixed Blood Power (one slot)
Ki Control (one slot)

Hint: Krillin: Jackhammer Disk attack:

Brandon Bussick.

Hint: Krillin: Kiss from Android 18:
Defeat Android 18 as Krillin to get a kiss.
natethegreat691.

Hint: Super Saiyan 3 Goku:
Defeat Fat Buu the first time you see him, in the level where he gets resurrected and kills Babidi, with Goku. Super Saiyan 3 requires five Ki gauges to use. Once you transform your Ki will begin dropping very quickly. However, Super Saiyan 3 also super-charges your attacks. This means that Warp Kamehameha and Super Spirit Bomb (and your other attacks such as Kamehameha and Zanku Fist) will now be even more powerful than they already were.
Matt Wingfield.

Hint: Teen Gohan: Recommended moves:

Burning Slash x2

Hint: Vegeta: Big Bang attack:
Defeat Kid Buu as Vegeta on the Supreme Kai's Planet.
Hoodrocka16.

Hint: Vegeta: Recommended moves:
Note: Once you are under Babidi's Control, get your Ki Gauge up to 5 (not very easy) and do Final Explosion. You will hit for 3,00 damage, which is the highest possible in the game.
Nick Campbell.

Babidi's Mind Control
Super Kami Water
Desperate Resolution

Use the following capsules. With Angel's Halo on, you will not lose any Ki when you are transformed, so Bulma's Wish is constantly raising your Ki. You can use techniques other than Galick Gun, but it is easy to execute and is fairly strong when used at full power.

SS2
Galick Gun x2
Angel's Halo
Bulma's Wish

The best moves for Vegeta are as follows. Even though you only have one real move, you may not need it; and if you do, Meditation gives you twice as many.

Angels Halo

Galic Gun
Bulma's Wish
Meditation

Hint: Vegita: One Hit K.O.:
Use Vegeta and equip Babidi's Mind Control. When you get down to your last health bar, let the CPU hit you. Make sure you hit the ground. After you hit the ground, you will see a short FMV sequence and Babidi will appear and turn you into Majin Vegeta. You now have access to two of the best moves in the game; Atomic Blast which takes up nearly an entire health bar, and Final Explosion which is the most powerful attack. If you manage to pull off Final Explosion, you will get a one hit K.O., even if the CPU is at full health. However, the charge-up meter for Final Explosion grows incredibly slow; and unless you fill the meter up completely, the only thing you will do is destroy Vegeta. To fill up the meter faster, do not rotate the Analog-sticks. Instead, repeatedly press X. This is the only way to fill the meter without destroying yourself.
Matt Wingfield.

Hint: Vegeta (Majin form): Recommended moves:
prime182.

Babidi's Mind Control
Angel's Halo
Galick Gun
Final Flash
Nose Dive Crash/Meteor Break

Hint: Vegeta (Majin form): Use S Final Explosion without dying:
Go to training mode and select "Practice". Choose Vegeta as your character, add Babidi's Mind Control, and select "Custom". Then, select any character and add Viral Heart Disease. Next, add the vaccine and select "Custom". Start the game. Wait until Vegeta's health gauge is red. Then, let the CPU hit you. You will now turn into Majin Vegeta. You can practice trying to perfect Majin Vegeta's final explosion without dying.

Hint: Videl: Recommended moves:
James M Gordon.

Eagle Kick
Viral Heart Disease
Vaccine
Falcon Rush x2 (or one Falcon Rush and Meditation)
Videl's Close Call

Hint: Yamcha: Easy unlocks:
Play Stage 3 of Babidi's Spaceship with Yamcha only using Wolf Fang Fist to unlock Dabura, Majin, Super and Kid Buu along with some of their moves much faster than if someone else was used.
CSG0100.

Hint: Yamcha-Tien switch:
In practice or duel mode, give either Yamcha or Tien their Tiencha fusion ability. Play with that custom character and press Punch, Kick and Guard during a match. Yamcha and Tien will switch.
Gamemaster Blade.

Hint: Invincible characters:
On a level where three characters are playable (Goku, Gohan, and Goten), take one of the three and walk onto the same space as another one. They will power up. With the same character, walk onto the same space as the other one. They will power up again. Next, search for defensive power-ups and equip Sturdy Vest. By now, these characters' defense should be at 200 (at least). A normal attack will do half of 1 point damage.
Austin Hill.

Hint: Defeating Buu:
To defeat Buu easily in story mode, use Custom Goku with the following capsules:

20x King Kai Fist
Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan 2
Kamehameha
Vaccine
Viral Heart Disease

Use your allies to run own Buu's health. Recommended allies are Piccolo and Vegeta (Galick Gun, S.S. 1 and 2, Meteor Break, Meteor Flash).
Jeff Schachter.

Hint: Defeating Kid Buu:
Play as Goten or Kid Trunks. Have them be Super Saiyan and have two capsules of Kamehameha or Buster Cannon. Also get a quick fire type move such as Continuous Kamehameha (if Trunks has one). This works well because if you are tall (like Goku), you will kick over Buu's head.
Strong Bad.

When fighting Kid Buu for the final time, first destroy everything outside of his little place. Then, move your character and your allies all in the place and gang up on him.
KDKRE0L.

Select Goten and Gohan as your partners. Have Gohan go to Goten. This will give Goten 20 defensive points. Then, make Goku go to Goten. This will give Goten 30 defensive power-ups (160 defensive points). Then, go to the carpet that Mr.Popo has close to where you start. Go to Kid Buu and fight him with Goten. Make sure you have Super Saiyan and block frequently.
Aaron Sidhu.

Hint: Charge special faster:
Hold X when charging up for a special to charge faster. This the only way to get Majin Vegeta's Final Explosion move without getting destroyed.
Spacemonkey6060.

Hint: Powered down:
Turn Super Saiyan or Super Namek. While in this form, change to any character. Notice the character you changed from will be powered down to normal.
Dclinesartin.

Hint: Maximum Ki:
When you fighting someone, charge your Ki for one second. Then, press Select and you will have maximum Ki. You can do this as long as desired.
phulon712.

The best way to get maximum Ki for Goku and Vegeta is to win their Angel Halos. When you transform into any form of Super Saiyan or Majin Vegeta, your Ki will not decrease. The only way for your Ki to go down is if you use an attack such as Spirit Bomb, Big Bang Attack, or Final Destruction.
ss4 vegeta.

To gain Ki faster, press Z. This is very helpful when you are in the SSJ stages.
John Myers.

Hint: Lower opponent's Ki faster:
Set the taunt (P + K + G + E) to any of the shoulder buttons (L2 recommended). Then, perform the taunt during the battle. Your opponent's Ki will drop one level. This is very useful when preventing your opponent from performing high damage moves or going Super Saiyan.
Zhanna Miskaryants.

Hint: Continuous and fast Kamehameha meter:
Turn you controller vertically and place your hand over both Analog-sticks. Rotate them both with your hand.
RYOOHKI6.

Hint: Double attacks:
Equip two of the same type of beam attacks (such as Galick Gun, Kamehameha, Buster Cannon, etc.) to your fighter. They will be twice as big and powerful as before.
Matt Wingfield.

Gogetenks.

Hint: Move references:

Android 16's Rocket Punch: Justice League.
Piccolo's Destructive Wave Combo (not the move): Batman Beyond.
Android 20's Photon Wave: Android 19 in the original Budokai.
Frieza's Death Wave: Refers to how people throw a bowling ball.

Hint: Hidden FMV sequence:
On planet Namek, face Captain Ginyu with Vegeta. Do not fight him while he has the dizzy symbol over his head or you will take two lives and likely kill him. Instead, beat him once and make him challenge you. If done correctly, you will see an FMV sequence where Ginyu asks Vegeta to join the Ginyu Force. Vegeta will reply that he would never do that stupid pose. Also, after you take away one life and fight him again, Vegeta will tell Ginyu that the Ginyu Force has been changed to the Vegeta Special Forces and Captain Ginyu is welcome to join.
Matt Wingfield.

Hint: Easy money, capsules, and Dragonballs:
The first level pits you and your allies against Nappa, Vegeta, and a few Saibamen. The goal of the level is to get the Dragonball before Nappa does. Nappa will make a run for the Dragonball but is easy to intercept. Vegeta will summon Saibamen and attack you and your allies, and Saibamen will also attack you and your allies. The level does not end until either you or Nappa gets the Dragonball. Kill Nappa so he cannot get the Dragonball. Kill Vegeta so he cannot summon Saibamen or attack you. Kill all Saibamen so they also cannot attack you. Doing this guarantees victory, as Nappa is dead so nobody but you or your allies can get the dragonball. However because the level will not end until you get it, you can do whatever you want. When you are standing still, you can either move to another location on the level or search the area you are in. Your allies can also do this. You can search a location multiple times, which can garner money, capsules, items for battles, and even Dragonballs, but you will not always get something. Collecting the Dragonball will end the mission and you cannot repeat this again until you finish the story or restart the game. Moreover, this is the only mission where collecting a Dragonball is a requirement. Note: Fight Nappa with Krillen to hear funny banter between them.
Danny Kriner.

Hint: Whereabouts of the other Ginyu Force members:
Fight Captain Ginyu on Namek with Vegeta and he will tell you that the other Ginyu Force members are on their way to another planet, and that he and Recoome are all that will be needed to take you down. .
Matt Wingfield.

Hint: Recommended controller configuration:
Have L1 set to Triangle and X. Keep R1 as it is. Set L2 to Square, Triangle, and X. By doing this, you can transform and do power moves and throws easier
gamekid90.

Hint: Play ping pong:
In practice mode, choose any two characters and set the Defense Ki Blast Wave to deflect-back. Jump as far away as possible and fire a Ki attack. Your opponent will deflect it back, and you can do the same. If done correctly you will play "ping pong".
K5CRIS.

Hint: Dragon Ball GT reference:
After the stage where Vegeta get s taken over by Babidi, Freeza and Cell come back to life. This happens in Dragon Ball GT.
Goku865.

Hint: Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z references:
If you look closely when fighting in the Budokai arena, some of the fans resemble characters from Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. For example, Emperor Pilaf and Mai from the original Dragon Ball, and King Kai.
Tensorwink.

When you get one of Bulma's alternate costumes, it will be a black one piece swimming suit with bunny ears on her head. This is from Dragon Ball, the television show; Olong gives it to her to wear.
jim martin.

Hint: Dragon Ball Z Budokai reference:
When fighting Kid Buu in Dragon World mode, when he does the vanishing drop technique it is exactly the same as the Missing Screw move that Zarbon used in the original Dragon Ball Z: Budokai.
steph29.

Hint: Power Rangers reference:
When fighting Dr. Gero's colored Saibamen, he calls them Saiba Rangers. The colors are Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, and Pink and are a reference to the Power Rangers.

Glitch: Buy everything easily:
Go to the tournament and play under the "Novice" difficulty setting. Win to get 50,000. Then, go to the shop. Buy something with the money and while the money is being deducted, quickly select each one. The money will not stop deducting, allowing you to buy everything with only 50,000.
ThaTDaMnGooD93.

Glitch: Z-sword in rock:
On Namak, even after you grab the Z-Sword, it remains in the rock when fighting.
secretmessages.

Glitch: Wrong voice:
When you get the fusion technique for Tiencha equip it to Tien and Yamcha. Go to training as Yamcha with the custom setting. Press P + G + K to switch to Tien then press P + K + G again and switch back to Yamcha. Use the Kamehameha Wave and "Take this" will be said in Tien's voice instead of Kamehameha.
Mearl4.

Play as Goku or Vegeta and use the move Potara. If you and your opponent press the same button, the earring will be destroyed. Do the Kamahamaha or the Galick Gun and you will hear Vegetto's voice instead of Goku's or Vegeta's.
Musashi1848.

Play as Trunks and do his Double Buster move. You will hear him say "Du-du-du-dum!", which is said when Gotenks does the Victory Cannon. However, because you are Trunks you should have heard "Double Buster!". This only works if you have the Fusion capsule on Trunks.
Musashi1848.

When playing as Perfect form Cell, oddly enough he will speak in the voice of his form before absorbing 17 and 18.
DiRo1.

Sometimes when you absorb another character. Super Buu's voice changes when you do a certain attack.
Micki95.

Glitch: Full bar for Android 20:
Select Android 20 (Dr. Gero), go to training mode and select "Practice". Choose any character for the CPU. Set the Ki Blast to deflect back then use. Press Circle then use Ki Blast Absorption. You will get one bar full.
Mygrant family.

Glitch: Not a move:
As Tiencha, press K(2), Right, K, Right, K, P, E. It will not show any move, but appears as if you are about to do one.
Link64bud.

Glitch: Time stop:
At the main menu, go to options and set your controller settings to have your taunt at R2. When you battle in Duel or World Tournament mode, play as Android 17, Android 18, or Cell. As you do an Energy Field attack (Left + Circle), press R2 immediately before it happens. This will stop the attack and you will taunt, but freeze the screen as if you are doing a devastation move. You are now free to move and power up as desired, but once you do another devastation move, your opponent will be able to move again. In the World Tournament mode, you can do this and push the enemy to the edge of the ring. Then, hold Square + Triangle to knock them off. Cell is recommended for this, as he has the Spirit Bomb and you can go behind the enemy while they are frozen and execute it. The ultimate attack is to freeze them, back off slightly, then start shooting regular energy balls. After about four bars of energy, back up a little more and do a Kameheha attack with Cell to do 1,820 or more points of damage. This is the strongest attack in the game besides Vegeta's Final Explosion. Note: The game may occasionally freeze if this lasts too long.
