Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot: How to Use Ki

Ki is what powers the strength of a warrior in the Dragon Ball series, but it also does much more than enabling Goku and his friends to take on powerful enemies in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. In the role-playing game developed by CyberConnect 2, Ki can be used during the field exploration sequences to make your life easier while searching for items or all sorts of secrets.

How to Use Ki in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Ki in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot can be used in a variety of situations while on the field. For starters, tt can be used to highlight objects and place of interest while flying around. While this doesn’t sound particularly useful, it actually is, as using Ki allows you to highlight objects behind obstacles, making it much easier to find all sorts of items.

If you’re looking to do a little hunting, and obtain useful Food Items, you will also have to use Ki. Ki Blasts are needed to knock down animals and huge dinosaurs, which will allow you to get these items. Ki Blasts can also destroy terrain, allowing to get some additional items.

Ki can also be used to boost your flying speed, an extremely useful ability, considering how big the map is and how long it would take to travel from one place to another at the regular speed. Make sure to avoid enemies while boosting your flying speed, however, as you will start with depleted Ki if you get into an enemy encounter.

Speaking of enemies, Ki can also be used to detect an enemy’s power level. If blue, the enemy is weaker than you; if yellow, the enemy is on your level; if red, the enemy is stronger than you.

How to Charge Ki

Ki is a very important resource both in the field and in battle, so you need to know how to restore it effectively. Ki is restored naturally as soon as you stop using any action that consumes it, but this restoration method is slow. To speed things up, you can press and hold the X button to charge Ki. This leaves you defenseless, however, so make sure you are far from any enemy: always check your surroundings before starting to charge Ki, and you will have no troubles always being at full Ki, ready to explore the world and fight the strongest enemies around.
