============== 2. Introduction =============================
Hi everyone! This is my very first faq so I decided to make it a character faq.
 Sorry if this FAQ takes a while to complete because some of you made some 
quotes that I put in here plus I don't have a lot of time on my hands. I have
 been with the series since Budokai 1 and have always loved this game. I hope 
you enjoy this faq very much and that it helps some of the Janemba fans out
 there. I can honestly say I don't like Fat Janemba as much as I hoped I would
 but in his Final Form he's superb. Well enough talk get on with faq!

============== 5. Basic Controls ===========================

X:         Dash and Step-In: Dashing enables you to get where you want to go
           quickly. Step-In allows you to step up to your opponent while
           some of their attacks.  

Circle:    Guard: By holding Circle down you will block ordinary rush attacks
           and lessen the impact of stronger attacks.

Triangle:  Ki: When pressing trinagle the character shoots a normal Ki blast.
           you hold it down it charges and produces a larger, more powerful 
           Ki blast.

Square:    Rushing Attacks/Fist Fighting: Basically punches and kicks to hurt
           opponent. Can be charged by holding square down for a period of time.

L2:        Ki Charge: Holding L2 down will begin to fill the Ki guage.

R1/R2:     Jump: Hold or double-tap to start flying. While flying around
           you can fly upward with R1 and down to the floor with R2.


============== 6. Why a Janemba Faq? =======================

I chose to do a Janemba FAQ simply because he is my all time favorite 
character! Don't ask me why he is my favorite because he just is. Also I wanted
 to start my first faq with a simpler one then a walkthrough or something like
that. I hope you like my faq so start reading it RIGHT NOW or else...


============== 7. How to Obtain Janemba ====================

To get Janemba and his transformation you need two
Z-Fusion potaras.

To get Fat Janemba you need to fuse the purple potaras 
"Saike demon" + "People's bad energy" 

To get Final Form Janemba you need to fuse the potaras 
"Janemba" + "Super Transformation"


============== 8. Janemba ==================================

Janemba is a rather strange and funny character. The only thing he can say is
his name and his voice is weird. His moves are alright and he is a good
character to use, especially against weaker characters that can't fist fight
against him.

7.1 Encyclopedia

NOTE: This is taken staright from the game.

This is the form in which Janemba fist appears in "Other World."

A low level servant of King Yemma named Saike was careless on the job one day
while working at the Spirit Laundry Machine. The machine broke down; releasing
the evil being cleansed within, and transformed Saike into the monster Janemba

Shortly after his creation, Janemba sealed off King Yemma's Palace and released
the spirits of the most evil deceased back into the world of the living.

When Goku and Pikkon learned of the unfolding disaster, they raced to the scene
to face Janemba. 

though he appears to be stupid and innocent, Janemba is actually a very
powerful, possesing potent Psychokinetic abilities. Also, from this state he 
can transform into his real more powerful form.

============== 9. Janemba (Final Form) =====================

I started this FAQ mostly because Janemba in his Final Form is my favorite
character! I can't put voices because, well.... he doesn't talk normal. I hope
this gets you to like Janemba and give him the respect he deserves unless you
already like him. Even though most of whats in this section is copied straight
from the game, GET READING!

7.1 Encyclopedia

NOTE: This is taken straight from the "Character Illustrations" part of the

  This is Janemba after powering up from his original, comical form.

  The intial, silly form of Janemba was no match for Super Saiyan 3 Goku, and 
he was defeated. However, after taking this form, Janemba becomes powerful
enough to turn the tables and knock Goku down.

  In addition to various techniques invovling his powers of teleportation and
psychokinesis, Janemba also attacks with a sword made from an Ogre's Club.

============== 10. Tactics When Using Janemba ===============

I am not going to say much in this section because I think you can use him
however. I think its just an opinion on how you use him so I will tell you what
I think is a good strategy.

When I am using Janemba in his Final Form. I tend to teleport to the back of my
opponent punch him a few times then grab him. As soon as you grab him if you
have the right energy bars use __________or if you can't use it yet then charge
up and if he charges at you use it. If you are trying to get a good combo with
him then charge up to max power and use Dimension Sword Attack. Since it is a
rush attack as soon as its finished you can immediately charge at him and 
attack him with your longest combo.

I do not use fat Janemba that often but when I do I really just use smash
attacks on my opponent and then use blast 2 attacks. Thats basically all I got
 for him.


============== 11. Q&A =====================================

1. Kazuki Kazama
 Q: Can Fat Janemba Transform?
 A: Yup, he can transform.

 Q: How much does Fat Janemba pwn?
 A: This is not measurable because he pwns infinitly.

 Q: Which Form of Janemba is best for fighting opponents?
 A:The larger form is good for fighting weaker opponents who cannot cause a
large character to flinch. However, if that character has a form that can fight
the large characters hand-to-hand, use his Final Form. The Final Form is
stronger and has a devestating Blast 2 attack.

 Q:Fat Janemba is awesome!!! Everytime someone rushes at me they bounce off, 
how can I use this to my advantage?
 A:Actually, not all of the rushes bounce off. Tapion's rush, and SSJ3 Goku's
rush hit giant characters as well. To use this to your advantage...just be
creative. When they bounce off, rush at them or take the time to charge your 



NOTE: I am taking these quotes straight from real people and will only write 
the exact words they say.

1. eds41591:  
  Well Janemba does growl so I think all the evil he's made up of is detrimental
to his voice.... like a smoker...

2. TheHitman31791:  
  Personally I think anybody who could give SSJ3 Goku a whoopin is a pretty
powerful character and his moves in this game are pretty good too (IMO).
Lighting Shower Rain owns and his ultimate isn't too bad.

3. VitaminDudley:  
  Janemba is a powerful fighter with skills in many areas. His lightning Shower
Rain is perfect on a stationary opponent, or one that has been knocked flying.
Dimension Sword Attack is a very cool looking and powerful UB, and his regular
attacks hit so fast that there's barely any time to block. He's a great
character with amazing potential.

4. CS2_Sasuke:
  Janemba has a good skill set. Both Fat and Final Form Janemba. Also, F.F.
Janemba having Instant Transmission, makes him all the better. (I.E.) Instant
Transmission+Lighting Shower Rain is a deadly combo.

5. elemental_guy2:
  Super Janemba
  His moves melee are fast and hard hitting.
He has a variety of moves to match the situation.
  I.T. loss opponents lock-on and run away for a surprise attack
Mystic Breath (IIRC). Short range stunning again to retreat of to start a combo
  Super Mouth Blast (Can't remember its name so i'll use BT1's name). Can be use
for beam struggles and quick no nonsense damage as you don't need to wait to
  Lightning Shower Rain. Good Multi-hit blast that will follow moving enemies to
a certain extent.
  Dimension Sword. A fast rush move that deals a lot of damage before being
    Fat Janemba
  Can't review haven't played as him enough

6. vivvav:
  Janemba is a good fighter, but it seems to me that the character is an evil,
DBZ alien version of Snorlax or something. It's huge, fat, only says its name,
and has a ton of strong attacks.
