Dragon-Ball-z: Legacy of Gokuu
By Vegita Guardian Of Destiny
Welcome! I am Vegita, Guardian Of Destiny, and I see you want help for the Gameboy Advance game "Legacy of Gokuu". Hey, that's cool. I've been writin' guides for Dragon Ball games for quite a few years, so I feel I have a bit of a handle on this sort of thing.
First off, let's get one thing straight: Even though I am Vegita, I will try to write from an un-biased point of view (although I still think I'm the best at everything).
Second of all, if I catch anyone copying all or part of this FAQ, ANY part of this FAQ (not counting little, inconsequential sentences like "First off, let's get one thing straight), I will destroy you. I will rip you limb from limb like the excessively weak individual you are, and then I will sue you for copyright infringement. Well, ok, maybe I'll just sue you, but if I got the chance I'd certainly go for the ripping of limbs from other limbs.
Third of all, I do not own the rights to this game, the names of the characters in this game or FAQ, or have any ownership whatsoever of this game (except for the cartridge sitting next to my desk, that is). Those are the property of their respective owners. This FAQ is wholly the property of ME, though, and If I find a website with this FAQ on it, and it has been changed in any way, does not give me proper credit, or is selling it without my knowledge and consent, then I WILL have my lawyers contact that site. Are we clear (this means YOU, Vertsk8!)? It's not just courtesy, folks, it's the LAW.
Hey folks, if you're going to write me about this game, I must insist that you put, in the subject header of the e-mail, the name of game that you are writing about. I am tired of having people write me, asking about games that I've written for, but they never tell me WHAT game they need help with. This will help me in identifying what game you are talking about, and will also help me weed your e-mails out from the Spam I constantly receive. If you do not put the name of the game in the Subject header, then I may not read your e-mail at all; I get a lot of spam, and people like trying to send me viruses, so if you don't do something that will actually help me in determining whether or not your e-mail is legitimate, you can only blame yourself for my not reading it. I've given fair warning, so you cannot complain about it.
II. Game Story
Dragon Ball was a Manga (Japanese cartoon or comic) created by Akira Toriyama,
an artist in Japan, in 1984. The manga, which dealt with an absurdly strong
little boy named Gokuu (off of the Japanese stories of a monkey god of the
same name), became wildly successful, and a cartoon version was put on the air
in 1986. It ran all through the course of the show until the main character,
Gokuu, finally grew to adulthood. This signified the end of Dragon Ball, but
promised that something new would return next week in it's place. This new
show: Dragon Ball Z.
Dragon Ball Z picked up right where Dragon Ball left off, with Gokuu as an
adult. He has a child now, and his arch-nemesis, Piccolo, was as bad and mean
as ever. This series introduced an entirely new set of characters, mostly
from outer space, and revealed Gokuu's origins (he's from another planet too).
Dragon Ball was such a large success, before and during it's "Z" stage, so it
was obvious enough that there would be video games made about it. There are
RPGs, Fighting games, Strategy games, and even a few arcade games. However,
Dragon Ball's reign of popularity eventually ended in Japan ni 1996, spanning
3 series (503 episodes all-told), 42 Manga volumes, several video games, tons
of movies, and various other marketing ploys.
Enter the United States' amoration with the Japanese cartoon, the "Anime".
There had been a number of anime brought over to the U.S., translated and
dubbed with English vocals, to be viewed by the American Populace. However,
none have every truly gained the critical foothold of becoming a popular TV
series on their own. There have been shows that gained notoriety from their
viewers, such as Speed Racer, a show who's "unique" blend of storytelling
and overall style became a point of mockery. There were legitimate successes
of certain imports, such as Akira and Princess Mononoke, but the holy grail
of importing hadn't yet been breached - the discovery of the intensely
And then, Dragon Ball Z came to our shores.
Granted, Pokemon had its phase in the United States, and enjoyed a swell in
popularity that rivaled that of our own TV shows. However, the market was
too saturated with the Pokemon anime and Pokemon merchandising, thus killing
the market too quickly. Dragon Ball Z started out with a modest following in
the U.S., and has been steadily growing ever since. The surest proof of its
success? At one point, Cartoon Network showed Dragon Ball twice every week
day and occasionally on the Weekends as well, airing 10+ times a week. The
fact that the majority of people weren't complaining about oversaturation -
in fact, they wanted to see more of the show (thus the justification for
having 3-hour block "DBZ Fests" on Weekends from time to time)! One could
easily say that Dragon Ball's popularity is just as high as Pokemon's was.
Now, with DBZ's success, comes a new wave of Video Games. Ladies and
Gentlemen, this brings us to "Legacy of Gokuu", the first DBZ game in
several years to be released.
Legacy of Gokuu starts off right where Dragon Ball Z did, with Gokuu arriving
at his old Sensei's home for a reunion with some friends. However, the
appearance of his brother, Raditz, spoils things as Raditz kidnaps Gokuu's
son, Gohan. This sparks the long chain of events that the game travels,
culminating in Gokuu's defeating of Furiza, one of the most powerful beings
in the Universe and an all-around scourge. So let's get to that game now,
