V. Enemies & Bosses
##### Raditz #####
Hey, it's your first true boss! Raditz is a tough guy to deal with for a
variety of reasons - he's a good deal stronger than you, he's almost as fast as
you (so you can't easily run away), he takes a LOT of punishment, and he has
more hair than an entire Head & Shoulders commercial. To top it off, Raditz
can throw Ki blasts at you, too, so you even have to deal with him from
distances! Raditz has you outclassed on almost every aspect, so you'll have to
play against him carefully...thankfully, there are several tactics you can use
##### Nappa #####
He's big, he's bald, he's not too bright, and he commands the Saiya-Jin armies.
It's Nappa, a moron combattant that has already taken out TenShinHan, Yamcha
(sort of), and Chao-Zu! Nappa is a large bald man with a handlebar mustache,
wearing the traditional Saiya-Jin armor. He is just a little slower than
Gokuu, and can fire powerful Ki Blasts at you (although he requires charging
them up, just like Raditz). Nappa is extremely powerful, probably the toughest
enemy you've yet fought (although whether or not he's more powerful than the
Namekian Dinosaur is debatable). The main problem with Nappa (just like
Raditz, Vegita, the Ginyuu Squad, and Furiza) is that he will keep on your
tail, trying to punch you as much as possible. You don't want to let him do
that, so fly away, use a Taiyo-Ken on him, or simply shoot him from afar.
Watch out for those Ki Blasts, too!
##### Vegita #####
So what if I'm shorter and less physically-imposing than General Nappa? I'm
over 4 times more powerful than he is, so what's the big deal? I hit harder
than Nappa, I can fire Ki Blasts as well (only mine are cool-blue) and I just
don't know when to quit. I'm the slightest bit slower than Gokuu, so he can
barely outrun me...however, if he stops even for a second, I'll be right back
in his face. The trick is to fly away, use Taiyo-Ken a lot, or whatever you
can to keep your distance from me. After beating me up once, I'll stop and
tell you that I'm not going to kid around anymore. That's right, I was only
playing. Now I can occasionally fire off Ki blasts without even charging,
making me much more dangerous. Beat me up until I fall down again, and you've
succeeded in beating up the coolest person in the game. I hope you're happy.
...wait a minute. I "get serious", and the best the programmers could come up
with is that I OCCASIONALLY fire blasts without charging? C'mon, what the heck
is this? That's bunk! Where's the flying, where's the different Ki attacks...
oh, that's right, it's a game by Infogrames. I shouldn't have expected decent
gameplay or well-planned fights.
##### Rikuum (Recoome) #####
Rikuum is a tall, beige-skinned, red-haired fellow wearing Saiya-Jin Armor (on
his body) and a Scouter (on his face). Aside from physical looks, Rikuum is
nothing more than a more-powerful version of Raditz, Nappa, or myself. Treat
him the same way - run away and blast him or Taiyo-Ken/Punch him. The only
thing that I find irritating about him is the fact that, as soon as you finish
talking to him, he punches you - which means you're pretty much guaranteed to
take some damage against him. C'mon, that's not fair!
##### Baata (Burter) #####
Baata is the large, bluish-alien member of the Ginyuu Squad, who wears the same
armor and Scouter as his compatriots. He also moves the same, attacks the
same, and dies the same. However, he does give more experience than Rikuum
does, and apparently takes more hits than Rikuum does before going down, so I
guess there is SOME difference between the two...
##### Jiisu (Jeice) #####
Jiisu is a strange member of the Ginyuu squad. Granted, there's the same armor
and scouter, but what kind of person has long, bright-white hair and red skin?
Whatever the cause, that's what Jiisu looks like. Once again, though, there
aren't any differences between this member of "the squad" and other others
aside from superficial ones. However, if you want to toy with 'em you can fly
to the top of the Plateau directly Right and pelt 'em with Kamehame-Ha's.
It's funny, 'cause you can't even get hurt. I don't recall ever seeing Jiisu
firing a blast from the Left or Right, which means you're free to attack all
##### Ginyuu (Ginew) #####
Ah, the big moron himself has stepped up to the plate. Too bad, he's not much
stronger or faster than the rest of his team. He is big, purple, wears the
same old armor and scouter, and has bad breath. Ginyuu can shoot Ki Blasts,
punch you, cook a mean quiche, and peform an amazing rendition of "Amazing
Grace" if asked nicely. Too bad, though, you just get to fight him. Take the
punk down in the usual fashion, Gokuu - Taiyo-Ken/punching are your bestest
##### Furiza (Frieza) #####
Experience: Form 1 - 300,000 Experience
Form 2 - 500,000 Experience
Form 3 - 600,000 Experience
Well, here he is, the final boss. Too bad, though, that he has had no impact
on you whatsoever, since this is the first time you've gotten to see Furiza in
the game. Oh well...if you're a fan of the manga or the anime, then you'll
know who he is, and won't mind the fact that he completely came out of the
Furiza starts out small and white, with purple strips on his body. After
beating on him enough, he will grow larger, taller, gain bigger horns, and hit
even harder. Keep on him and he will shapeshift into a being that looks like
one of those Aliens from "Alien/Aliens/Alien 3/Alien Ressurrection". Keep on
him again until he turns into his final form. At this point, Furiza kills
Kuririn, Gokuu goes SSj, and the map changes into a "Planet Namek's gon'
'splode" map. Fight on and win, Kakorotto.
