Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi is a series of fighting games based on the anime and manga Dragon Ball by Akira Toriyama. Each installment was developed by Spike for the PlayStation 2, while they were published by Bandai in Japan and Atari in all other countries from 2005 to 2007.
The second and third installments were also released for the Nintendo Wii. Bandai's role has since been filled by the merged Namco Bandai Games, and Atari's PAL distribution network was absorbed into Namco Bandai Partners. Namco Bandai has also handled publishing in North America for future Dragon Ball Z games since 2010, effectively ending Atari's involvement. The trilogy was followed by Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team, released in 2010 for the PlayStation Portable and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, released in 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In battle, players can build up their Ki gauge to execute various techniques such as the Power Guard, which reduces the damage characters take by 1/4. The Ki gauge can also be used to use moves referred to as Blast 2 skills. Every character has a unique set of Blast 2 skills that allow the character to use special moves such as Ki blasts and physical attacks. Characters also have a self-recharging numeric gauge called Blast Stock that allows players to use techniques called Blast 1 skills.
Blast 1 skills usually have a supportive effect such as allowing characters to regain health or immobilize the enemy. Players can also power up into a mode called Max Power Mode normally by building up their Ki beyond full at the cost of Blast Stock bars. Max Power Mode makes the character that initiated it faster, stronger, and able to use moves that are exclusive to the mode.
One of these moves is the Ultimate Blast which is usually the most powerful move a character has, though use of any Blast 2 skill or the Ultimate Blast immediately ends Max Power Mode.
