Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, like its predecessor, despite being released under the Dragon Ball Z label, Budokai Tenkaichi 3 essentially touches upon all series installments of the Dragon Ball franchise, featuring numerous characters and stages set in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and numerous film adaptations of Z. The game also features one of Akira Toriyama's original characters only related to Dragon Ball through crossovers, Dr. Slump's Arale Norimaki.



Huge graphics problems, unplayable. See issue 4654

Set Texture Cache Accuracy to a safer mode to solve this.


To play with a Wiimote go to "Config" -> "Gamecube" and set "Port 1" to "Nothing". Refer issue 1870.

No Sound in Cinematics

There is no sound during cinematics, refer issue 1005. Fixed since May 2, 2011, unclear of specific revision.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
