IV. Walkthrough (8)
The Ginyuu Squad
"Immediately outside, you'll find myself standing about (oh, and those 2 little
runts as well, Gohan and Kuririn). Talk to them if you wish, DEFINITELY talk
to me (you'd BETTER), and then head Up and Left. As Gohan and Kuririn informed
you, Freiza is lookin' to get the Dragon Balls, and now his elite fighting
force 'The Ginyuu Squad' are here. By walking Up and Left, you'll find a funny
lookin' purple dude with 2 horns - this is Ginyuu, a powerful fighter in his
own right, with the ability to swap bodies with other people. Unfortunately,
Ginyuu doesn't actually do that in this game (a pity), so you're relegated to
"Talk to Ginyuu, and he'll tell you that he want the rest of his team to fight
you while he works on a victory pose. Great, the guy's loopy as well as
powerful...anyways, you might as well beat up the rest of his team, eh? I
would suggest, before taking on the Ginyuu Squad, that you head left and clear
out the enemies (and restock your Herbs, if you need it). Hey, if you have to
run away, it's nice to have those other enemies out of the way so you can do so
safely right? Head straight up to find Rikuum (Recoome), the first member of
the Ginyuu Squad.
***** Quest #21: Defeat Rikuum (Recoome) *****
Reward(s): 40,000 Experience
"Rikuum won't seem interested in fighting you at first, but Gokuu pushes
onward, prompting Rikuum to attack. From here, you fight. Beat up this
nincompoop, please...after all, it's just another fight!
*** Quest #21 Completed ***
"Moving up, you'll see Baata at the end of a small pathway on top of a plateau.
Talk to the blue-foo' and initiate another fight.
***** Quest #22: Defeat Baata (Burter) *****
Uh...why is this a quest, anyways?
*** Quest #22 Completed ***
"Walk down the slope and head right to find the 3rd Mouseketeer...er, Ginyuu
Squad Member, Jiisu. You know the drill - talk and fight.
***** Quest #23: Defeat Jiisu (Jeice) *****
Blah blah blah.
*** Quest #23 Completed ***
"Upon defeating the last member of the Ginyuu Squad (you can fight Rikuum,
Jiisu, and Baata in any order, so long as you fight all 3), Ginyuu himself will

Reward(s): 90,000 Experience
No more irritating fools
Gokuu progresses to the area where Furiza's ship is
"Dur hur hur. Lookit me, I'm a member of the GINYUU SQUAD! Aren't I coo! I
kan spel reel gud, two! HO HO HO!!! 1337 5p34k 4-3VR! Man, I wonder if
Ginyuu realizes that being the Captain of a bunch of complete dorks makes him
an even bigger dork...
*** Quest #24 Completed ***
"With the Ginyuu Squad now toast, Gokuu says he wants a better challenge. He
says he sees Furiza's ship off in the distance (lord knows how, since he can
only fly a little ways off of the ground in this game), and immediately flies
off, landing just outside of an outpost.
"Here you are, Gokuu, standing just outside of a location simply LOADED with
Furiza's henchmen. What's the most logical thing to do, being a hero and all?
Why, simple - go on a killing spree, taking out everyone you see. Heck, it
doesn't matter if they're simply a part of nature (Pterodactyls) or lowly
soldiers who might have been drafted into Furiza's group without wanting to...
you need to start killing people! I mean, you're the hero of the story, so
it's perfectly justified if you kill MORE people than the villain could
possibly hope to. Heck, you could even take them out in particularly gruesome
ways, like drowning them in a firetruck by filling the cab with water, and it's
perfectly acceptable - heck, it's downright ENCOURAGED - because you are the
"...in case you ever wondered why I dislike the 'good guys', this is why.
They're such freakin' hypocrites, it's annoying. Well, back to the game!
"Gokuu, your only objectives left are to locate Furiza's ship, beat up Furiza
himself, and NOT chuck this game in disgust. Let's ignore that 3rd option for
now, since it would do little good for my FAQ. You start out in the Lower-Left
corner of the screen, next to a building and a Blue Henchman. If you need to
refill your Herb Supply, enter the building (there are 2 Herbs located within
a pair of boxes, shoot them to open them), then exit and re-enter. Easy
"Welcome to the world of Startropics, folks! Yes, that's right - the age-old
Nintendo game where Mike Jones hopped from island to island, beating up enemies
with a Yo-Yo, is back in full-force! However, this time you play as Gokuu, and
you don't really hop from island to island as you do just FLY. Thankfully,
though, there are Flight Charges located on each island, so you can't possibly
get stuck...aw, who am I kidding, this isn't ANYTHING like Startropics! No,
Infogrames decides to copy a less-than-stellar game (Lagoon) than one of
quality like Startropics. Feh...well, start flying to the left, beating up
anything you see and stopping to pick up Herbs and Flight Charges. Exit this
area to find Furiza's ship.
"Ok, so here's the problem - this area is the last area that you can build
levels in, so if you're not at level 25 then I suggest you GET there. The
problem is that...well...this place is FULL of enemies, including the new-and-
improved Henchmen. These guys are tougher than their teammates, and since
there's a lot of 'em, you could be in for some trouble. Be prepared to do a
lot of flying to the island area so you can refill your life and Herbs, then
continue back again. If you kill all of Furiza's Croonies in this area
(including the one on the island in the Upper-Right corner), you'll get a total
of 240,000 experience. That means that no level-up should take THAT long to
reach. Look at it this way - the most experience you need for any level-up in
the game is 1,200,000 - that means you would only have to clear that screen 5
times in order to gain a level-up. C'mon, that would take what, 10 minutes?
Yeesh, man, get in there and reach your maximum!
"After hitting your peak, fly through the hole in the Top of Furiza's ship.
You'll find Vegita, Gohan, and Kuririn again, all decked out in Saiya-Jin
armor. They inform you that you need to hop in the healing tank before Furiza
arrives (lord knows why, since you SHOULD be at peak health right now). Make
sure you have a full stock of herbs (and, if you have any left, some Senzu to
go with it), and walk off the Right side of the screen to enter the healing
tank area. If you're not ready, then walk through the door on the back wall.
At any rate, it's time to fight on one of the toughest scourges in the
