Vs. Yamcha - Boss Fight Tips
Yamcha Is At Level 4
When you face Yamcha, he's at level 4. He's not a very tough opponent but can dish out pain if you don't dodge or guard against his attacks.
Sidestep To Avoid Spirit Ball
When Yamcha does his Spirit Ball move, he'll send a strong energy ball your way. If you get hit, it'll do several hits simultaneously and can eat up your HP so sidestep to dodge.
Guard When Yamcha Glows Red
When Yamcha glows red, he's powering up for a dangerous attack. Getting hit can stagger you, however, if you guard you can counterattack and stop him from continuing this move.
Vs. Tien - Boss Fight Tips
Tien Will Be At Level 5
When Tien challenges Piccolo, he'll be at level 5. As long as you're leveled up properly, Tien will not be an incredibly hard opponent.
Sends Pink Energy Balls Your Way
Tien has an attack that sends a volley of homing energy balls towards you. You can guard or dodge this move in any way you see fit.
Dodon Ray Has Straight, Thin Trajectory
When Tien does his Dodon Ray move, he'll fire a thin laser beam straight towards you. Simply move to the side and move closer to him, he's vulnerable to attack at this time.
Vs. Krillin - Boss Fight Tips
Krillin Is Now At Level 5
Krillin will now be at level 5, compared to when you first fought him as Goku. He'll also have more powerful moves from the previous fight.
Move Sideways To Dodge Kamehameha
Same as the previous fight, Krillin will also do a straightforward Kamehameha. Dodge to the side then close in on him to land a couple of free hits.
Avoid Getting Hit When Krillin Is Glowing
When Krillin is glowing red, this means he's powering up. Make sure to avoid getting hit by his combo or you'll get stunned for a few seconds.
