Battle Stadium D.O.N
From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki
Battle Stadium D.O.N (バトル スタジアム ディー オー エヌ, Batoru Sutajiamu Dii。Ō。Enu) is a Japanese fighting game for the Nintendo GameCube and Sony PlayStation 2 featuring characters from the popular anime and manga series Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, and Naruto, hence the "D.O.N".
Similar to the Super Smash Bros. video game series, the players are put onto either a moving or non-moving stage. Borrowing from Power Stone, these stages have some level of interactivity. Players must then fight their opponents. Unlike other fighters, D.O.N uses a combined health gauge, that is, decreasing the health of one player will in turn increase the health of the other players. Thus, in order for one player to win a fight, they must make their own health bar take up the entire bar. As such, a fight can potentially last indefinitely if no time limit is set. Also, there are in game techniques that can be pulled off, i.e. Kamehameha for Goku and Summoning Jutsu for Naruto, and supers that can transform the characters into a new form, i.e. Naruto's Rasengan turning him into the Kyubi and Goku's Genki Dama turning him into Super Saiyan. In addition, some characters can induce a temporary transformation during the battle, i.e. Sasuke's Sharingan and Luffy's Gear 2nd.
The single-player session has the player fight through five rounds, 2 or 3 of which have missions with goals selected randomly. Depending on the difficulty chosen by the player, however, different amounts of missions are given out with Easy giving the least and Very Difficult giving out the most. Fulfilling the missions' goals rewards the player with coins that can be used in the slot machine available upon completing the fights. The slot machine is the way unlockables are obtained. There are also items which you can buy to help the characters in battle.
Up to four players can participate in a multiplayer session, though a multitap must be used for more than two players for the PS2 version.
