Battle Controls[edit]

In battle, there is A LOT of controls and inputs to perform a huge amount of techniques. However, in Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2, all characters share the same inputs, to perform more or less the same moves, at least for melee moves. So, mastering all these moves is mastering 90% of each character.

  • Change also occurs when these inputs are used, for example in a directional Dragon Dash.
