Version 0.2 (5/16/02): The first version of this FAQ.
-= 2. Introduction -=
The Dragon Ball Z saga is brought to the Gameboy Advance in the form of an
action/RPG title. It is a pretty bland game to be blunt, although it, from my
understanding, takes after various sagas of the DBZ anime. It is quite true
to the original anime, although the game controls could have been less shoddy
than they are. The game could have more depth like an RPG, but it's obviously
a kid-oriented title, so I guess it's good for what it is. However, I would
recommend some DBZ fan to try this, regardless of the age group, but not
really for serious gamers. It simply isn't THAT great, that's all.
-= 3. Story -=
Our story begins with our humble hero, Goku. It has been a long time since he
last saw his childhood friends, and so he has decided to meet with them on
Master Roshi's Island, the house of his old Martial Arts master. Accompanying
Goku is his young six-year-old son, Gohan, named after his grandfather. Goku
is glad to see Bulma, Krillin, and even Master Roshi's long-time companion
Unknowingly, trouble looms over Goku and his friends even as they catch up on
old times. Traveling toward Earth at this very moment is a powerful Saiyan
warrior with some terrifying news for Goku.
The fate of Earth and the universe rests in Goku's hands...
-= 4. Controls -=
Control Pad: Move character, move cursor on menu screens
Start: Pause game, bring up submenu
Select: Show flight status display
A: Attack normally
B: Use selected Ki attack (hold to charge)
L: Switch through Ki attacks
-= 5. Overview -=
Obviously, Goku has the power of flight in this game. Press R and he'll
levitate; press a direction on the Control Pad and he'll quickly fly in that
direction, as long as you're holding down the direction on the pad. Each
space you fly consumes a Flight Charge. After you run out of Flight Charges,
you cannot fly until you get a refill. They are scattered around the areas of
the game, so they aren't too hard to find. Flying has its advantages, too.
For instance, you can fly across pits, get away from an enemy quickly, and so
on. Just be sure not to waste this ability, though!
Goku's special abilities are in the form of a magic known as Ki. Use this
power by pressing B, holding it to charge up the ability. At the start of the
game, you only have access to the Ki Blast, but as you progress, you can
learn a couple more techniques to add to your arsenal. See the Ki Abilities
section of this FAQ for more information on those abilities!
-= 6. Walkthrough -=
Master Roshi's Island
After the opening FMV, the game opens on Master Roshi's Island with all your
friends standing around. Start by talking to Master Roshi himself. He'll tell
you about his magazine collection (your first quest begins here), but he
seems to have lost a few. Talk to Gohan and everyone else, then walk around
the island and pick up 2 magazines. Then, enter the Kame House and you'll
find a third magazine on the floor inside. Leave the house and talk to Master
Roshi again, and he'll give you 2 Senzu Beans and some Herbs for the
magazines as thanks.
Upon completing this quest, you will gain 350 experience points and go up to
Level 2! After that, Raditz will appear and kidnap Gohan, then vanish again.
Piccolo then shows up and offers to work with you as a team to stop Raditz.
He will decide to go alone, so he'll leave. You then call down Nimbus and a
small cloud appears nearby; walk onto it to leave the island.
You'll arrive in the area outside of Goku's house. Go in the back of the
house and talk to Chi-Chi if you want. From where you arrived in this area,
head east to a pond area, where you will find actual enemies for the first
time. Attack the Crabs, Squirrels, and Snakes running around to get some
experience (you'll get to Level 3 from this little area alone). Head
southwest to a patch of 6 bushes. Destroy them with Ki blasts, then check out
the dark spot on the ground to get some Herbs. Next, head all the way north
of the pond and follow the path as far north as you can go. Climb up the
ladder you find (not the first one next to the pond, but one further north)
Use a couple Ki blasts to destroy the barriers in your way, then go east and
defeat the Blue Dog there, along with any Snakes you see. Follow the path
southeast to find a Senzu Bean on the ground.
Now, head back to where the house is, and follow the path southward from
there. Follow the path all the way to the end in the northwest area. Continue
north into the Forest.
Here, go north and up a couple steps to a ledge where an empty nest lays.
Talk to the wandering Pteradactyl to hear of its despair over its egg being
stolen, and you'll get to help it. Start by going back down the steps and
walking around the platform where the nest is to find a stone. Take it, then
go back around and head southwest to a path between the trees. Follow it
south and east to a stone; take it. Now, go all the way north to a set of
steps. Go up them and follow the path all the way west to a large set of
stairs to the north. Go up them and continue north and east. Go all the way
east along the obscured path and you'll come to an open area with Chiaotzu
and Tien standing around. Talk to Chiaotzu to get 500 experience points, then
talk to Tien. After telling your story to him too, you'll get another 500
experience points. Now, continue east and you'll see a barrier to the north.
Destroy it with Ki shots, then defeat the Blue Dog and follow the path to a
stone; take the stone.
Now, go back east and south, then continue east to a waterfall. Fly across
the rocks blocking your ground path, then land and go north up the cliff.
Fight and defeat the Pteradactyl by keeping your distance and shooting lots
of Ki blasts at it whenever possible. When you finally defeat it, go west and
grab the Pteradactyl Egg! Now, backtrack all the way back to the nest in the
beginning of the Forest area. Talk to the Pteradactyl and give back the Egg
to get 350 experience points!
At this point, head west and up the steps, then continue further west as far
as you can go. Go south and down the steps, and head west to a seemingly
abandoned tent. The old man that it belongs to is trapped on an island to the
north. You'll see 3 slots in a straight line in the water; place the 3 stones
you found in those indents to form a path. The old man will thank you and
give you 500 experience points and some Herbs. After that, head all the way
back east to where the nest was. Instead of going northwest and up the steps
again, follow the path directly west to a site with large bones laying there.
Defeat the Blue Dogs and Goku will note there is a powerful presence across
the river. Fly across and continue west to find a Dinosaur. Fight it if you
want (you should for the experience); otherwise continue west out of here
into a village.
As soon as you enter this area, head directly north and defeat the Blue Dog
that runs at you. Continue north and enter the house at the peak. Talk to the
old man and he says that he can help, but first you must calm the
disturbances in the forest. Agree to do so, then leave the house and go down
one set of steps. Follow the path west and north to a split, defeating the
Blue Dogs along the way. At the split, head west and you'll find a girl in
the corner who is lost. Talk to her and she'll follow you around so you can
bring her home. Be sure to break the box with a Ki blast if you need a refill
of Flight Charges. Then, backtrack all the way east and south to where you
first entered the village, then head south to a large house. Enter it and
talk to the girl's father to be thanked and given 500 experience points!
Now, exit the house and talk to the boy standing outside. Talk to him twice
and he'll reveal that he wants to give that girl flowers, but can't find any.
We'll get those later; for now, head west to a pond with an island in the
center. Talk to the boy standing next to it to hear about his boat being
stuck on the island. Fly over to get it, take the Flight Charge if needed,
then fly back with the boat. The boy will give you 200 experience points as
thanks. Now, head all the way east and north, up one set of steps, then west
and across the gap by flying. Continue to a split in the path (where there's
a pond to the west and a Flight Charge to the east). Break the barriers to
the north and talk to the cat named Neko. It'll follow you around since it is
lost. Take it back to the old man in the northeast house (where you first
visited upon entering this village). He'll thank you and tell you to come
back when you complete the entire mission.
Leave the old man's house, then go south and fly west across the gap again.
Continue until you reach the point where you rescued the girl just a moment
earlier. This time, break the southwest barrier and follow that path around,
breaking the barriers along the way. You'll encounter a Pteradactyl; lure it
out into the open area by the pond and fight it with Ki blasts from a
distance. After you kill it, go back to the dead end where you found it, and
fly northward into a grove. Pick the flowers, then fly back south and make
your way all the way to the girl's house again. Talk to the boy outside and
give him the flowers. He'll reward you with 400 experience points.
>From here, head all the way to the westmost point of the village. Then, head
north and up the steps. Follow the path until you reach a guy with a smaller
flying creature next to him. Talk to them (Yamcha and Puar); they'll each
give you 500 experience points! Now, continue east and north along the path,
defeating the enemies and breaking the barriers along the way. Go all the way
east, then south and east again. Fly over the gap, then go north at the other
side to the old man's place. Talk to him and he'll finally help you since the
forest is at peace. He'll allow you to progress through the skull passage in
the back. Walk up to it and the old man will call to you, then teach you the
Solar Flare technique! Now, walk through the skull into the next area, which
is the crash site of Raditz.
Raditz Crash Site
Here, go north and talk to Piccolo. When you're ready, go northeast and talk
to Raditz to engage in battle. Since this is the first real boss battle, look
in the appropriate section for help winning here. After the battle, you will
hold down Raditz and Piccolo will come to finish him off. His blast, however,
takes you both out, sending Goku to the Afterlife.
When you arrive here, go up to the desk and talk to the large guy sitting
behind the counter. Then talk to Kami, the green warrior standing nearby.
He'll tell you that you have to pass through Snake Way to reach King Kai.
Now, exit this area and you'll be on your way (now is also a good time to
Out here, simply head north and follow the long and winding path throughout
this area. You'll come across a Snake Queen; talk to her and she'll end up
wanting to fight you. Defeat her if you like to get some good experience,
then continue onward. You'll eventually lose balance and fall off Snake Way
and into Hell!
When you land here, Goku will be wondering where he ended up in. From where
you land, go south and east to a grassy area with a couple trees. You'll see
a red devil-like creature there; talk to him and he'll challenge you to catch
him, then he disappears. So, continue east and south along the path; Goku
will be amazed at the "pool of juice" and some spirits will mock him. Anyway,
continue southeast at the path split. Continue south and west and you'll see
an elevated ledge with Clouds moving around on it to the north. Fly onto that
ledge, then continue all the way west along the path to another split. Go
north and you'll come to a spirit (a non-moving cloud). Talk to it and it'll
follow you around.
Now, head back south to where the path split was. Before going back east,
continue all the way south and west to the very end of the path. Pick up a
Senzu Bean at the end, then go back to the split and head east, then fly back
down to the lower ground. Then, go east and north and make your way all the
way to the starting area of Hell. From there, go south and at the split, head
southeast. You'll see a large building to the west; walk south and west in
front of it and you'll see a person standing there. Talk to him and he'll be
happy you brought the spirit back, giving you 500 experience points for your
After this, head back east and north to the path split. Instead of continuing
north some more, head west as far as you can, then go north. At the cliff you
reach, fly up to the higher ledge and walk to the east to find another
spirit. Talk to it, then it'll follow; bring it back south to the guy you
were just with to get 500 more experience points. Now, head back to the
starting point of Hell again, and from there head east. You'll see a ledge
you can fly onto to the north; fly up there and head east a bit. You'll come
to the final spirit; get it to follow you and bring it back to the guy at the
Fitness Center (that building). He'll give you 500 more points, too!
>From here, head to the start point once more and head all the way east and
south. Continue as far south as you can go, then go west and fly onto the
ledge you pass by. Continue west to the path split, then go southeast. You'll
see a tree with a fruit nested in it, and a blue guy standing nearby guarding
it. Since you have all 3 spirits, go past him and up the stairs to the tree,
then check out the Yemma Fruit nearby. You'll eat it, and a red devil-like
creature will confront you. He'll show you how to get back to Snake Way, and
off you will be!
Back here, head north and follow the path all the way through this area. You
will want to fly northward across gaps to parts of the path further ahead, to
save alot of time. Make your way all the way to the northeast area, which is
the end. You'll notice King Kai's planet floating in the air nearby. Stand by
the cloud arc in front of you, then fly north and west to the planet. An
animated scene will appear and you will be at King Kai's.
King Kai's Planet
Here, head north along the path and you'll see King Kai standing outside with
his flying cricket Gregory. Talk to King Kai and he'll accept the proposal to
train you. He'll first have you catch Bubbles, the monkey, in the field to
the south. Use your flying power to catch up to him quickly, then press A
when you catch up to stop him. The next task will be to bonk Gregory, the
flying cricket, on the head with a mallet. Follow it around and hit it by
pressing A, then the training will be complete. King Kai will let you know
that your friends on Earth have collected the Dragon Balls and wished you
back alive again. You will then leave this planet and head to Kami's home.
Here, head north to where Kami and Mr. Popo are standing. Talk to them both,
especially Kami, and he'll teach you the infamous Kame Hame Ha ability! He'll
also direct you to where you should be going. After that, head behind the
building in the northwest corner and talk to Korrin. He'll give you some
Senzu Beans to help you out! Now, go south and to the west edge of this area
and you will fly down to the snowy forest below.
Here, start by going westward until you come across a little boy stuck on a
high ledge. Fly up and rescue him, then he'll follow you around for a bit.
Head all the way south through the forest and icy pond, defeating the
Dinosaur and Wolves along the way. At the end, continue south into the City.
Once here, head all the way southward until you reach the Bank on a street
corner. With the boy still following you, enter the house on the adjacent
corner to the right. Talk to his mother and she will thank you by giving you
a Capsule. Leave the house and go back north to where you entered the City.
Enter the house to the west of that point and talk the guy collecting
Capsules inside. He'll take your Capsule for 1500 experience points! Now, go
back to the Bank, where there is apparently a robbery taking place. The
robbers are running around outside, so dispose of each one with your attacks.
After you kill them all, you'll also be rewarded with 1500 more experience
Now that that's over with, continue southward from the Bank to a restricted
area belonging to what seems to be the military.
Here, simply follow the road all the way around, talking to the soldiers
standing around along the way. Along the way, you'll hear King Kai telling
you to hurry back to Earth to help your friends. When you reach the end, head
east and into a battlefield area.
In this battlefield outside of the city, head east and talk to Krillin and
Gohan again to catch up on events on Earth. Then, go north and talk to Nappa
to enter battle. Read the Bosses section for help getting through this fight.
After you beat him, you'll gain 20000 experience points and Vegeta will then
battle you. Consult the Bosses section again for strategy here. After the two
battles are over, a scene will take place where Vegeta transforms to hurt
Goku, then Yajirobe appears and fights Vegeta back, forcing him to transform
back to normal. Gohan transforms and beats down Vegeta, but Goku says not to
finish him off. After Vegeta disappears, Krillin talks about going to Namek
to collect Dragon Balls, then this area is done. Your next stop will be the
ruined planet of Namek.
When you arrive at this ruined village, head north and enter the first
building you come across. Talk to the Namek inhabitant inside and he'll tell
you about the temple and the artifacts. Agree to help, then leave the house.
Talk to the guy standing outside that house and he'll tell you about the
dying trees, and how you should plant trees to keep their planet living.
Agree to help them as well, then continue north through the ruined village
and watch out for the Frieza Fiends and Namek Pteradactyls wandering around.
Fight them if you like (you should for the experience). The trees you can
find are in the northwest, northeast, and southeast areas of this area of the
village (you can tell what they are since they have darked tops than other
trees). They are usually being guarded by a Frieza Fiend, so be careful. Go
back to the first building you saw in the area and plant the trees in the
surrounding holes. You will receive 7000 experience points for doing so. Now,
get to the northwest area by flying to higher ledges and such, and continue
north to the next area.
Namek Temple Area
This area is just outside of the temple ruins on Namek. It is swarming with
Frieza Fiends, which you can fight for tons of experience. Anyway, there are
three Artifacts you must obtain, which you must place in their proper places
inside the temple. Anyway, head north and to the west. Follow the path going
west and all the way north while defeating the Frieza Fiends and Namek
Pteradactyls along the way. As you make your way northward by walking around
the path, you'll notice a red object on the higher ledge. Fly up and grab the
Red Artifact. After that, continue east and southeast along that upper path.
You will be contacted by King Kai along the way, too. When you reach the end
of that path, fly up to the higher ledge and defeat the Frieza Fiends and
Namek Dinosaur. Grab the Blue Artifact you see there.
Now, make your way back to the south end of this whole area. Defeat more
enemies to gain lots more experience (you should be at around level 17-19 at
this point in the game). Then, enter the temple itself.
Inside here, go straight ahead and stand on the white platform to warp to the
next room. There, go south and all the way east until you reach the wall. Go
north and you'll come to a statue of a hand pointing to the right. Walk in
the direction it points to find a hidden room through the wall. Grab the
Green Artifact there; you now have all 3 Artifacts!
Now, go back out of this room and head south and west. Step on the green
platform you come across to reach the next room. There, go west to another
statue of a pointing hand. Go south from there and onto the orange platform
to reach another room. Head east and south through this room, then east to a
yellow platform. Warp from there to the next room, then in that room, go
south and west at the first path split. Go all the way west to the end, then
onto the white platform. In the next room, simply go north and use the next
white platform to warp again.
You will now be in the room where you place the Artifacts. Go around the
room, placing each Artifact on the respectively colored spaces around the
statue. After you do so, your speed will increase and you will gain 30000
experience points. Goku will notice something to the left, so walk onto the
white platform on the left side of the room. Follow the path all the way
north to the end to exit the temple.
Behind the Temple
In this nice area out back of the temple, head straight ahead and talk to
Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta. After you find out information from them, go
northwest to come to another guy, who is the leader of the Ginyu Squad. Talk
to him about the squad, then go directly north to find the other members of
the Ginyu Squad standing around. Before you do anything with these guys, you
might want to run around the rest of the area, defeating the enemies
wandering around (so you won't have to worry about them when fighting
Ginyus). Then, talk to the first one (Recoome) and he'll fight you. Lure him
out into the open area and defeat him by using Solar Flare and punching to
attack. You will get 40000 experience points for beating him. Go talk to the
second one (Burter) and do the same for 70000 experience points. Finally, go
east and talk to the last Ginyu Squad member (Jeice) and fight her. After you
win and get 70000 experience points from her, the leader of them will be
standing around to the south.
Head down to where the leader was standing and he'll be ready to fight you.
Treat the Captain Ginyu just like the other 3 members and you'll easily win
that battle, too. You also gain 90000 experience points from this battle!
After that, Goku will see Frieza's ship to the east, and that is where you
Frieza's Forces Outpost
Here, you will be doing a lot of flying to get through this area. There are
also many Frieza Fiends around, but they should be easy if you're at level 20
or above at this point. If not, wander around and gain some experience while
making your way eastward. When you get far east, continue into the next area.
There, continue east and defeat the Frieza Fiends and Soldier you see
standing there. Then, fly to the top of Frieza's ship and enter it.
In here, talk to Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta standing around. Then, continue
east into the Rejuvination Chamber to be healed for the final battle with
Frieza. After that, you will be outside of the ship again.
Outside Frieza's Ship
Out here, talk to your friends one last time, then continue northward. King
Kai will wish you well, too. Continue north and east and you'll reach Frieza.
Talk to him and the battle will begin. Read the Bosses section for some
strategy here. After all forms of Frieza are beat, congratulations on
completing this game.

Found: Raditz Crash Site
Strategy: The battle with Raditz isn't quite as hard as it may seem, to
be honest. It can be frustrating, I admit, since Raditz moves
as quickly as you and tends to follow you really closely. Use
your Ki blasts from a distance to attack Raditz if you get far
enough away from him. When Raditz stops to charge a Ki blast to
shoot, face him from the side and either charge up your own
blast to hit him with, or just go up and punch him a couple
times. If you end up getting stuck along an edge of the area,
fly over Raditz to get out of that predicament, and continue
your attack from afar. If you get low on health, there are
Herbs you can pick in this battlefield, as well as Flight
Charges if you run out of that as well. Just keep moving at ALL
times and fire on Raditz whenever possible, and you'll end up
Strategy: Nappa is obviously more powerful than Raditz was, but he is
nothing you can't deal with. I have a good strategy that works
and can finish Nappa off rather quickly. Throughout the battle,
stay away from him so he doesn't hit you with his punches or
energy beams. Switch to the Solar Flare ability, then when you
get far enough away, turn around and charge it a little, then
hit Nappa with it. He'll be frozen in his tracks for a few
seconds. Now is your chance to run up and punch him 4-5 times
consecutively. After about 5 punches, run away since Nappa will
be moving shortly. Repeat that process until you end up
winning; it's that simple!
Strategy: Since this battle takes place immediately after fighting Nappa,
you may want to start off by using a Senzu Bean or Herb,
depending on how much health you need to recover. Vegeta acts
just like Nappa did; he follows you around as closely as he
can, punching you and using energy blasts whenever possible.
Use Solar Flare to freeze him temporarily, then run up and
punch Vegeta a few times. About halfway through the battle,
Vegeta will claim that enough is enough, but the battle still
continues. Keep on using Solar Flare and attacking, and you
Found: Outside Frieza's Ship
Strategy: Of course, this is the final enemy you face in this short game!
It is a bit sad since this guy is just as easy to foil as any
other enemy/boss in this game! Simply use Solar Flare, punch
Frieza a few times, run away, and repeat. When Frieza moves on
to his next couple forms, be careful since if he hits you, you
will lose more health than before. Just repeat the same
strategy as mentioned above, and you will eventually beat his
third form. You will then end up in a ruined area since the
planet is breaking apart from the battle. Goku will go Super
Saiyan and Frieza will be back to normal. Use a Senzu Bean at
this time if you need it, then continue the attack like before
until you win, beating this game.
-= 9. Ki Abilities -=
Kame Hame Ha: This is the final Ki ability you receive, and it is naturally
the most powerful one, especially when charged up! If you
fully charge it and release, Goku will shout out the infamous
words and shoot out a large energy beam to attack. If not
charged, it is a smaller beam, obviously.
Ki Blast: This is your standard energy ball shot. Tap the button to shoot a
weak shot that doesn't go far. Hold down B to charge it up,
allowing for a larger blast with more distance on the shot.
Solar Flare: Use this ability to temporarily blind the enemy with an energy
blast. You must charge this up in order to use; the longer you
charge, the more effective it will be, obviously.
-= 10. Items -=
Flight Charge: Recover some flight charges.
Herb: Recover 1/4 health (can only hold up to 6 at once).
Senzu Bean: Fully recover health (can only hold up to 3 at once).
-= 11. Secrets/Tips and Tricks -=
Cheap Recovery Trick
If you are wandering around in an area and are low on health, you can try
this (not-so-secret) trick to recover quickly. Save your game, then shut off
the game and turn it back on again. When you appear back where you left off,
you'll be back at full health/Ki without even using items!
Infinite Health and Ki Glitch
When an energy ball is shot at you, press R to fly and it will hit you. You
will land, but the Flight Charge display will still be showing, meaning you
lost no health at all from the attack! You will land when hit, though, so go
in the air and land again to get out of this useful glitch!
