Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu is a fighting game based on Dragon Ball Z that was released on November 24, 2003, for the Game Boy Advance.


Taiketsu is less like its sibling Budokai series and more like other fighting games; combos and special moves are more complex as a result, and require much better timing or button input to execute.

Whilst all characters can perform one of three super attacks during the fights, few characters undergo transformations as part of their attacks. For example, Goku can turn Super for his Level One and Level Two supers, and Vegeta can transform into his Great Ape form for his Level 3 super. At all other times, the fighters are played in their "base" forms (Broly is an exception, who is primarily played in his Super Saiyan form). Fights are mostly ground-based, however the players can engage in an optional "Sky Battle" (the game's "clashing system"). Each fighter has a story ending when the player completes the game with them, allowing multiple plays.
