How To Beat Yakon - Best Tips & Strategy

Battle Against Babidi's Beast

You will battle Beast of the Dark Star: Yakon with Goku once to progress the story. This will be a tough fight if you're unprepared.

Stay Within Melee Distance

Stay Within Melee Distance

Melee combo attacks are your best bet against Yakon as his high HP pool, ability to absorb Ki energy to recover, and high-damaging ranged attacks makes ranged tactics ineffective. You'll have to bash his face in if you want to win.

Meteor Smash Is Effective

Meteor Smash Is Effective

Meteor Smash Special Attack is highly effective against Yakon due to its high damage, staggering effects, low Ki cost and stun gauge damage. Make sure to add it to your melee rotation.

Melee Lock Yakon To Beat Him

The best way to beat Yakon is to melee-lock him so as to prevent Yakon from using his top 2 moves - Cross Claw and Light Energy Absorption. Staying within melee range is the best offense and defense.

How To Melee-Lock Yakon

StepsWhat To Do
1Charge in to get withing punching distance from Yakon.
2Punch him 4~5 times, end combo with a Meteor Smash. Yakon will probably turn red at this point so get ready to dash.
3Dodge from Yakon's lunge attack. Use this opening to go back to punching him & use Meteor Smash.
4If he tries to get away or is knocked back, press L3 to quickly close up on him. Keep punching him!
5He will keep trying to turn red and lunge you. The lunge is easy to dodge /defend from, so repeat step 3.
6Rinse and repeat. You've now Melee-Locked Yakon!

Aim For Guard Break To Out-DPS Yakon

Aim For Guard Break To Out-DPS Yakon

Lock Yakon in Melee-lock without him escaping will break his Stun gauge, opening him up to devastating attacks. Use this to Out-DPS Yakon and finish the fight faster!

Yakon Abilities & Counters

Cross Claw

 Cross Claw

A fast-firing, quick-flying cross Ki-attack that is difficult to avoid with a dash when you're too close to him. Will stun if you get hit too many times. Yukon will use this sometimes in quick succession.

How To Dodge Cross Claw

How To Dodge Cross Claw

Hold Down R1 to activate in-battle sprint and keep moving to one side. You will have a hard time if you rely on traditional dash-spamming due to the density of the crosses fired.

Light Energy Absorption

Light Energy Absorption

Absorbs your Ki-based attacks and regain HP when active. Will activate if Yakon is away from you and he senses that Ki-attacks are incoming. Only use Ki special attacks like Kamehameha after you give him a good beatdown that does not allow him to react.
