Martial Arts Styles
Some Combat and Non-Combat cards represent certain martial arts styles of combat
or non-combat. Those martial arts styles are Red, Blue, Orange, Black, and Saiyan.
Each martial arts style can be identified by the style's name (Red or Saiyan,
for example) in the card title.
|| Another way of indentifying a card's martial
arts style is by the color of the diamond, if any, in the Scouter area of a card
(the area containing the card power) and by the Japanese symbol for the style
in that diamond. The Saiyan martial art style is identified by the color green
and the appropriate Japanese symbol. (Move cards (defined below) and Named cards
do not have a martial arts style, so ignore the diamond and symbol and treat them
as if there were none.)

the Foot-Hand Style-Black martial arts emphasize the stength found in use of kicks

Style-Saiyan style stresses the use of power in all things. Energy and physical
attacks are done from a position or are not done at all. Defense is secondary
to a strong attack.
Tokui-Waza (Favorite Fighting Style Advantage)
When any player uses only a single martial arts style in his life deck, he
recieves a bonus in power. He announces at the beginning of a game the single
style of martial arts cards in his life deck. From then on, he is allowed to add
1 to his Main Personality's PUR number. A player using a Tokui-Waza, or favorite
fighting style advantage, can have any number of Move card in addition to his
single style of martial arts.
|| Only Main Personalities with Saiyan blood
can declare the Saiyan style as their Tokui-Waza. All of the Villains may choose
Saiyan, but only Goku and Gohan can do so for the Heroes.
|| Move cards (cards with the word "Move"
in the card title) are another sub-group of Combat and Non-Combat cards, but are
not a martial arts style. Moves are generally used as a last resort, and put results
ahead of personal costs. Using these cards often means damage to both attacker
