Added DiffLines:

* ClippedWingAngel: In Cell's WhatIf story in the first game, [[spoiler: the variation of Perfect Cell gained from absorbing Krillin weakened him enough so that Yamcha and Tien could take him down]].


Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In the first game, Cell finds sicking Yamcha on him unfair to Yamcha in his WhatIf story. Possibly justified because [[spoiler: he had absorbed Krillin instead of 18, and Krillin's heroic heart might've had some influence]].

''Dragon Ball Z: Budokai'' is a more traditional fighting game taking place in a full 3D environment allowing for sidestepping ala Tekken whilst of course including all of the series' special attacks. The games are also notable for allowing mid-battle transformations as well as battles in mid-air.

''Dragon Ball Z: Budokai'' (or [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Budoukai]] via romaji issues, and simply known as just ''Dragon Ball Z'' in Japan) is a more traditional fighting game taking place in a full 3D environment allowing for sidestepping ala Tekken whilst of course including all of the series' special attacks. The games are also notable for allowing mid-battle transformations as well as battles in mid-air.



The series also includes the ''Shin Budokai'' games for UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable as well as psuedo HD sequel ''Burst Limit'' for UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and UsefulNotes/XBox360 as well as ''Infinite World'' on UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 as they were developed by the same group and use the same engine.

** ''3'' counted as partly this for the overseas audience, partly MarthDebutedInSmashBros for Gogeta, who debuted in Fusion Reborn which would not be aired in the US until a year after the game's release. The same goes for Omega Shenron and Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and Gogeta, as 3 was released before GT had ended its run in the US making ''Budokai 3'' a bit of a spoiler. And in this case if you don't count GT, the presence of Goku's "Dragon Fist" as an ultimate move counts as one for the 13th movie.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Budokai 1''. Transformations increase attack gradually at the cost of HEAVY ki drain (Just look at Goku's ki drain in Kaio- sorry, King Kai Fist x2 form in comparison to his Super Saiyan form.), all beam attacks like Kamehameha are instead large fireballs (Thekamehameha itself being coloured yellow), characters can revert back to their first forms if hit with low enough energy (Yes, this counts for ''Frieza and Cell as well.''), the story mode only goes up to the end of the Cell saga (though it has Great Saiyaman as a playable character) and having to buy Dragon Balls in Mr. Popo's shop rather than finding them in-game. On the other hand it is also the only game in the original trilogy to actually feature cutscenes in its story mode.

* NoExportForYou: There was a Special Edition of Budokai 2 that had a limited release only in Japan titled ''Dragon Ball Z 2V''. This version of the game made the Majin Frieza and Majin Cell outfits usable in versus mode. More notably, Frieza also had two special alternate costumes, His brother Cooler, and his son Kuriza from ''Manga/NekoMajin''. The story mode also had an extra chapter after the fight with Kid Buu. In it, Goku would team up with Tiencha to defeat the revived Raditz, Nappa, Recoome, Ginyu, and Dabura.

* SNKBoss: When playing as Goku, Budokai 3 has Cell. Before him, none of the previous bosses really stand too much of a chance (with the possible exception of Frieza in his full power form). Cell has more health than you, and is incredibly durable to most of the attacks that you have unlocked at this point. The Kamehameha sort of helps, but good luck landing a hit on him with it because he usually blocks it or moves out of its way.
