After beating the final boss, you will need to get all five distorted time eggs. One is located at each of the five locations: Hercule’s House, Capsule corporation, Guru’s house, Majin Buu’s house, and Frieza’s spaceship.
Then finish the “unknown history” chapter of story mode and get super Saiyan 3 Bardock as an alternate form to Bardock. The specific form on the character screen is called “Battlesuit 4”. Bardock transforms to Super Saiyan 3.
Now that story mode unlockable characters are out of the way; the next are from parallel quests!
You have to beat the parallel quest to get the character. An ultimate finish or Z rank is not needed.
If you are missing any of the parallel quests
- Beat story mode
- If you have beat story mode, beat the quest before it. For example, if you want to play quest 67, but it is missing, you might have to beat quest 64, 65, and 66.
- Look for the ‘!’ sign in your world map and go to those places. Challenge those people where the exclamation sign is located.
The ! represents quest events.
