characters swap codes replace the character controlled by the
Player 1 by the character of your choice. It can be useful for
accessing Cut Content in Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 and especially play
the Dragon Universe Mode with characters who don't have a Story Mode.
Make the characters do their ultimates in their base
With cheat codes, you can make the
characters do their
Ultimate in their base form. For example, Cell can now do the
in his Imperfect and Semi-Perfect forms. Same for Frieza: He can now do
his Ultimate in his first, 2nd and 3rd form. Last but not least, it is
also possible to make the characters use their Lvl2 Death move when
they are in their base form: And so Broly doesn't have to transform
into his Legendary Super Saiyan form to use Gigantic Press.
Start the fights directly with Metal Cooler
In Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3, the characters always begin
the fights in their base form, excepted in the few missions in the
Dragon Universe Mode.
But with cheat codes, it is possible to make the characters start
matches in their transformed state, like for example here with Cooler
who enters a fight with Vegeta directly transformed as Metal Cooler.
Starts the fights directly with Frieza final form and
The way theses cheat codes work is simple; When you put
particular capsule in a given character skills tray, he will become
another character or transformation. For example, Frieza becomes Final Form Frieza
if the Breakthrough capsule is added to his skills tray and Universal
ambitions makes him become Mecha Frieza.
Start the fights directly with Vegeto, Veku and Gogeta
Theses codes make it possible to start directly the fights as the
fusions Vegeto, Veku and Super Gogeta.
Start the fights directly in Super Saiyan 4
With cheat codes, it is possible to start the matches as SSJ4
Goku/Vegeta and as Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta.
Start the fights directly as Gotenks
Ever wanted to start fights as
Gotenks (normal and fat versions ?), theses codes which are
currently in the making will make it possible (finally).
Start the fights directly as Piccolo (Neil absorbed)
I always thought that Piccolo merging alone with Neil
and Kami during the fights was unrealistic and had wanted to change
this for a long time. This cheat code makes Piccolo start with theses forms
and make him unable to transform during the fights when the capsules
Sync with Neil and Fuse with Kami are in his skills tray.
Start the fights as Majin Vegeta
Ever wanted to start the fight directly as Majin
in Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 ?
Now thanks to this cheat code it is possible.
Start the fight as the Kaiobito fusion
Last but not least, players can now start the
fights as the Kaiobito fusion (The fusion of Supreme Kai and Kibito
with the potaras) in Budokai 3.
Start the fight as awakened Kid Gohan, Hercule, Krillin
And with cheat codes, it is also
possible to make Kid Gohan, Krillin,
Mister Satan and Dabura start the fights fully awakened when their
Breakthrough capsule is put into their Skills Tray : This way, they
won't need to transform during the matches to do their ultimate or
dragonrush attacks. In addition, theses characters will also not go
back to their base form (I always thought it was strange for them to
have some kind of transformations while in the Dragon Ball manga and
anime they don't transform during the fights).
Broly's customized Legendary Super Saiyan Transformation
When the codes are enabled, Broly can also start the
fights transformed as a Legendary Super Saiyan if the Breakthrough
Capsule in his inventory. Also, when his normal capsules are used, he
can transform only if he has all his ki bars full and if a particular
capsule (Paragas admonishment) is put in his enventory. In addition to
this, with the codes he can't transform into a LSSJ in the tournament.
Rewards changed for gathering the 7 Dragon Balls
By default, when the characters find the 7 dragon balls
in the Dragon Universe, they get to choose three capsules : Their
Breakthrough capsule, their Memories capsule and a (not so) rare
capsule. This cheat code replaces this last
capsule by a very rare capsule which is normally very hard (and time
consuming) to get. To give a few examples, with Goku and Piccolo
you can now obtain both versions of the Gotenks capsule for Songoten
and Trunks), with Yamcha you can unlock Saibaiman, with Teen Gohan, you
can unlock the Cell Games tournament, ...
No fatigue recovery time
This code reduces the recovery
time after fatigue to one second : This way when exiting Hyper Mode
the characters don't stay idle for a dozen seconds and they recover
almost immediately (after just one second).
Shorter Hyper Mode duration
This cheat codes which drastically
reduces how long the Hyper Mode last prevents the IA from spamming
Dragon Rushes, which is one of the biggest flaws in Dragon Ball Z
Budokai 3. This code, if used with the No Fatigue Recovery Time makes
Hyper Mode, Dragon Rushes and Ultimate moves still usable but they have
to be timed (so used strategically).
Customizing the Normal version of the characters
In some important game modes, like the Tournaments, the
player fights the normal version of the characters. This is why in the
tournaments, if the player's opponent is Goku, this IA-controlled Goku
will only use Kaioken, Kamehameha and Genkidama : Because the
default/normal version of Goku only has theses 3 capsules.
codes change this by giving a few more capsules to the default version
of the characters.
For example, now in the tournaments Goku will
transform up to a SSJ3, Vegeta to a SSJ2, etc...
NB : Of course, the
default version of the characters won't have all the characters skills
and won't be as strong as the Breakthrough version of the character.
