As you have seen in the series Dragon Ball Z has had every type of character come up and square against Goku, these enemies range from bigger, more intelligent and persistent but our friendly Saiyan has always found a way to beat them. One such enemy is Yakon in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot and this guide will show you how to defeat him.
How to Beat Yakon in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot
Just like in the anime series, Yakon is similar in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot and if you aren’t aware he can finish the battle in mere minutes. As a Ki absorbing enemy, this makes Yakon one of the scariest characters in all of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot.
There are a few attacks that work brilliantly on Yakon and using these often will help you defeat Yakon faster than the normal approach.
To defeat Yakon make sure that you attack him with Meteor Smash, this attack consumes low Ki, this will prevent Yakon from draining your Ki and you can inflict heavy damage on Yakon with this.
Note: You won’t be able to lock on to Yakon due to low light so it is best that you stay close.
As soon as you get close to Yakon, start using melee attacks, this will help you restore your Ki and at the same time, you can do a good amount of damage.
After every 3-4 hit make sure that you cast a Meteor Smash, stun Yakon as often as possible. Stunning will offer you a window of opportunity which you can use to deal with a lot of damage.
As Yakon turns red, dodge his lunge attack towards you. You will learn to predict his moves as you keep fighting.

Yakon will try and hit you with this attack, this uses Ki and you will see two energy beams thrown at you. If you are close by then try to block it and if possible it is best to dodge this attack.
Light Energy Absorption
Yakon has the ability to absorb Ki attacks, while in the Anime Goku gave him too much power you do not have to do the same.
