Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Achieving S-Rank
According to Famitsu in their review, S-Rank was nearly impossible to get. While that isn’t necessarily true, it can be very annoying given that you not only have to complete the mission objective, but also you have to do certain things to get your score at least over 400.
For mission objectives look here:
What you will need:
SS4 Gogeta Z-Assist
Monster Carrot Z-Assist
Metal Cooler Z-Assist
General Tao Z-Assist
What you generally need to do to get a S rank is to:
1) Get a 100 rush attack – 100 points
2) Use the L+X or L+A buttons four times – 100 points
3) Use your supports four times
Use your YYYYXA for 50 points
Use your ultimate/counter special attack – 50 points (max 100)
Get a perfect for 100 points
Items you’ll need equipped:
(再生能力) – Regenerates Energy (1000 Zeni)
(戦闘服) – Raises defense (3000 Zeni)
(タイムマシン) – Fastest Z-Assist Regeneration (4000 Zeni)
Now to go into more detail to what I do to get S-Rank easily (at least 90% of the time). What you need to do is use Bardock and release Metal Cooler which will keep your opponent busy while you charge your Ki.
After that, do Bardocks L+X move which will slam the opponent to the wall and right when they get up do his L+A grapple and immediately after release Monster Carrot while they are on the ground then tap SS4 Gogeta until he comes out. If done correctly, your opponent should have turned to a carrot and SS4 Gogeta will (usually) unleash his Big Bang Kamehameha.
Use your L+X or L+A move two more times and unleash the rest of your support. Be sure to fulfill the mission requirement and do all of the above and you’ll have your S-Rank.
For missions that require perfect victory:
I tend to use Krillin for these missions. You’ll need Monster Carrot, Metal Cooler (for distraction) and General Tao. To block most attacks (except Ginyu) be sure to crouch block so you don’t take damage and stall while your Z-Assists come back.
You can use Metal Cooler and Monster Carrot to charge your Ki then General Tao to keep the opponent distant and once you’re ready simply use Destructo Disc over and over.
