Dragon Ball Z: Super Bakuha (Doragonboru Zetto: Supa Bakuha!) is a fighting video game developed by VICIOUS Studios and published by Atari for the Sega Dreamcast. It was the first Dragon Ball Z fighting game since Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout on the PlayStation. It was followed by 3 sequels.





Gameplay[]

Battle[]

The objective of each game's battle is to deplete the opponent's health bar. Unlike most fighting games, Super Bakuha has 2 health bars, one green and the other yellow. There is also a Ki gauge, divided into 5 sections. By filling up different sections of the Ki gauge, players can use super attacks or transform. Battles take place in a 2D/3D enviroment, where players can move around via teleportation.

Edit Items[]

Each character in the game can be optionally customized by way of a seven slot Item Sheet. Players may choose up to 7 Items and give them to a fighter.

There are 3 types of Items, Special Items, which include Items such as Jump Height +1 and Ki Charge Time +1, Physical Items, which include items like Attack Speed +1 and Combo Damage +1, and Support, which includes items such as Self-Healing and Endurance +1.

Items can be purchased from Kami using E Points from the World Tournament mode.

Story Mode[]

Super Bakuha's story mode plays similarly to the actual show, with 3 episodes available at the start and 18 more unlockable. Each episode features at least 2 battles and several cutscenes explaining the story. The storymode stretches from the Piccolo Jr. Saga to the Cell Games. Bonus, Majin Buu Saga characters can be unlocked by completing the Story Mode on Invincible Difficulty.
