This is where I'll tell you to how to unlock characters and new menus.


Ok, this isn't really a secret but I felt it worth mentioning here. After you're tenth story mode battle, you'll unlock mulitplayer mode at the MAIN menu. There are two mulitplayer modes: VS and Trade.

VS Mode: Allows you to battle against your friends/rivals. Once selected, you're taking to the System Screen where you can arrange your deck and characters. Whoever defeats all of his or her opponent's characters wins. Nothing in addition is given out here.

Trade Mode: This mode is for trading cards. Select the cards you want to trade. The trade will be complete when both players agree to this displayed selections.


Once you save a game after clearing story mode, Battle Mode will become available. A variety of characters from the story are available for you to use in battle. Selecting Battle Mode will bring up the System Screen. Arrange your characters and deck as you would in story mode. Enemy characters are randomly selected for each battle. If you win a battle, you will go back to the System Screen. If you lose, you'll return to the Title Screen. Additional Cards and EXP are awarded with each victory.


To unlock the extra Trunks Story, beat the final Perfect Cell with Vegeta (Super Saiyan or Majin). You must have Future Trunks unlocked. You will then go to that instead of the Buu Saga.

Here's the list on how to get all the unlockable characters your first time through the game.

Character How to Unlock
Gohan When you start the game.
Gohan-Super Saiyan Unlocked before Cell Games.
Gohan-Super Saiyan 2 Unlocked during Cell Games.
Piccolo First you must get all special cards on the maps and have beam deck. Then, on the Map after you fight Vegeta with Goku, get Yajirobe's sword, talk to Krillin, and tell him to run, then give the sword to Yajirobe. On Namek, when the Namekian attacks you, dodge to the left. Find all other cards on the maps, and you will unlock him before Frieza VS Goku.

Vegeta When you start the game, pick the beam deck from Piccolo. Then fight normally until you reach the second map. Get Yajirobe's sword in the rock formation south of Gohan in the middle of the map. Then go to Krillin and say "yes". Then give the sword to Yajirobe. Then on the next map on Namek, get the Dende card in one of the houses, then find the Dragonball, then when the Namek attacks you, dodge left. Then on the fight with Guldo, use Gohan. And on Recoome, the same. Then on Jeice and Burter, use Goku and Gohan. Now, on the next map, get the card up in the left-top corner in the space pod, then get the dragonballs and tell Krillin to summon the dragon. Vegeta shall be unlocked right before the battle with Ginyu+Jeice.

Future Trunks When looking at Cell's shell, talk to Trunks until he talks about the future. Then, in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber (as Gohan), check the bottom right jar a lot. You'll get Trunks' sword. He'll be unlocked at the Cell Games.
