1. What Are Ultimates?
Ultimates are Super-Moves activated by hitting P+K+G+E in Hyper Mode, activated with
the aforementioned combo. Ultimates, in most cases, are extremely powerful. They
often deal about 2500-3000 damage. They also take awhile to finish.
During the Ultimate, a gauge will appear at the bottom of the screen. I call this the
‘Ultimate Struggle’ gauge. In order do deal major damage, you must win the Ultimate
Struggle. This is done by watching the bottom, moving gauge fill, then pressing X, O,
Square, or Triangle at the right time. If done correctly, you can outlast your
opponent, and destroy him/her.

2. Which Characters Have One?
30 of the ‘normal’ characters have an Ultimate, Majin Vegeta has one, and 4 Fusion
characters have one.

3. Getting/Buying Ultimates
It’s relatively easy to get Ultimates- some of them, anyway. You can get the
Ultimates for Goku, Teen Gohan, Gohan, Vegeta, Krillin, Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien, Broly,
and Super Buu in their Dragon Universes (Super Buu’s in Goku or Vegeta’s DU). Fusion
characters and Majin Vegeta already start with them. As for the other 20 characters,
you have to buy them after getting 35 characters. For the DU characters, you’ll get
them through Storyline events.
The Ultimates you have to buy are 50,000 zenie- Pricey, right? Well, here are a few
ways to make that much money.
1. Play through any tournament.
2. Play through Advanced/Cell Games Tournament with a ‘Sparkling’ capsule equipped.
3. Use this method:
Play through Kid Gohan’s DU a second time. Immediately go to the Forest event near
Goku’s House at the beginning. After that, go to Central City, and fly Northwest to
find 5,000 zenie. Next, fly to the Southwest corner of the ice island for another
5,000 zenie. Then, fly to the southeasternmost island in the South City island chain
for 12,000 zenie. After that, fly to the island directly east of the world Tournament
for another 5,000 zenie. Finally, go to the SW coner of the map, and look around for
23,000 zenie. And there you go. 50,000 zenie.
