All Capsules Unlocked

This may take several tries. Go into the capsule store while holding down L1, L2, and R2. It may help to edit some capsules so it will save and you can keep all of your capsules. If it doesn't save it will go bak 2 the last number it was.

Pick Up Things On Ground

To pick things up off the ground (like dragonballs), when your on a spot and its your turn, press square or circle (I said press square or circle because I don't remember which one to press if the one you press doesn't pick up something, then the one you pressed skips your turn).

Automatic Max Ki

On the main menu, click training, then click practice. Select your character, and map. Once fighting, press the Select button. You should have max Ki.

Extra Health Decrease

On story mode, after you beat an enemy, they'll be stunned & normally it will take away one health square. But, if you attack them again while they're stunned, it will take away two health squares.

Unlock Everything

Enter the Skill Shop while holding down the L2 button. Bulma will talk, but just leave, while holding the L2 button still. Re-enter the shop, repeat the trick over and over and your percent of your Capsules keeps increasing. This also unlocks characters for you, Breakthrough capsules, fusions, everything.

Your Choice On Breakthroughs

Before you beat Kid Buu on map #9, exit so it will save. Go back into Dragon World and then kill Kid Buu. If you have the seven dragonballs, the Dragon will appear. If the breakthrough you want isn't there shut off the PS2 and turn it back on and do it repeatedly until you get the breakthrough you want. It might take awhile but it works.

Videl's 38-hit Combo

This combo will do nearly as much damage as her Close Call attack, but will consume just two ki gauges. Just throw your opponent with Bear Blowthrough (P+G), then as they are coming down, hit them with her Falcon Rush attack (>K,K,K,E). If timed correctly, you will chain the two attacks together for 38 hits.

Burning Slash

To get future Trunks to a Super Sayain (1or2) and type in this command: KK->KPE and you will preform the burning slash attack (NOTE: You must input a certain set of buttons to do the Burning Slash attach properly.

Play As Cyborg Freza!

This is very hard to do. First keep playing until you get the skill " Freza's Spaceship " . After that , choose him , and go to edit skils , or go to the options titoled " skills " , go to 1p and go to edit skills. When you are there , give Freza " Freza's Spaceship " WARNING: This skillwill take up 3 spaces of the 7 you get. This is a VERY RARE skill so keep playing.

Babidi's Mind Control

Beat Majin Vegeta the first time you see him with Goku (make sure you dont fill up the Killi Meter with your battles).

99% Capsules

Hold L1 and L2 while going in and out of the shop your percentage should raise. It goes to 99% but the higher you get it takes longer to raise it. Dont forget to buy something new or move around skills in skill edit, or the percentage will go back to what it was.

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.

Bulma's Costumes

After beating Dragon World if you have collected all seven Dragon Balls then along with the usual choices of breakthroughs you might also get the chance to wish for things titled "Bulma's Costume (2)""Bulma's Costume (3)" and so on. By wishing for these you can see a different outfit for Bulma at the skill shop.


Get the Supreme Kai's Breakthrough and Vegito.


Get Tien and Yamcha breakthroughs and Gotenks.


To get Gokule get Goku and Hercule Breakthroughs and Vegito.

Earn All Capsules

Choose "Edit Skills" from the main menu and choose your memory card. At the Edit Skills menu, choose "Skill List". Then hold the L2 button and press triangle to return to the Edit Skills menu. Each time you do this, up to 5 random capsules will be added to your collected skills.(Note: As you approach 100%, it takes longer to get the last few capsules because you'll keep getting duplicates of the capsules you already own. So if you don't have the patents, don't bother.)
