This achievement will be obtained once you unlock the Dragon Arena Mode. In order to unlock it you must clear all 10 Dragon Universe story modes (except for Broly's). Once this is done you'll receive a Dragon Arena ticket that unlocks Dragon Arena in the main menu. Dragon Arena is a game mode that allows you to fight multiple opponents using a Level-based Custom Character to procure unlockable capsules. There are multiple achievements that are geared towards unlocking characters from this very mode. This solution will also help you with obtaining all of those characters provided below.

Capsules are special items that represent things such as equips, characters and more. Listed here are what Rare Capsules to look for that will unlock the following rare items you will need for all of the achievements. Your Level will start out low however as you win fights you will be able to increase stats and face even higher leveled foes. This is why it's important that you fight at the World Tournament Stage and just ring out foes to level up faster as you go.

Here are the rare unlocks you need from Dragon Arena:

Level 31 - 35: Nappa / Reward: Saibamen.
Level 51 - 55: Cell / Reward: World Tournament Cell Games.
Level 66 - 70: Piccolo / Reward: Cell Jr.

Break Ins are characters who interrupt your Dragon Arena fight before it starts and challenge you instead. You will be taken to a different stage and will have to face them. Break-Ins only occur every so often and they are completely random. If you defeat them you receive rare capsules. You must be patient in getting them to break in as they can take many fights to appear sometimes.

Unlock Saibamen
To unlock the Saibamen capsule character, you may use any character that is between the Level of 10 through 20. Keep fighting any character who is between Levels 31 through 35 until Nappa interrupts your battle before it starts. If he doesn't interrupt simply press start and reselect your character and repeat until you get Nappa to Break in. Defeat him for the Saibamen capsule.

Unlock World Tournament Cell Games
Follow the same above except now your character may need to be anywhere between Levels 20 through 40. Keep facing any character who is between Levels 51 to 55. Eventually Cell will interrupt before your fight and if you defeat him you get the Cell games Tournament which you need to clear for another achievement in Tournament mode.

Unlock Cell Jr.
Your character should at least be between the Levels of 20 through 40. Keep facing characters that are Levels 66 through 70 until you get Piccolo to break in. You may have to level up a bit before you can face characters in this Level range. Simply ring foes out at the World Tournament stage to level up faster. If he doesn't, press start and re-select your character until he does. Break ins occur right before the fight.

Battle Strategy(Broly)
The Break-In characters can be fairly difficult to defeat, especially since they're double your Level and counter everything. So use Broly for this and Level him up as needed by winning fights. Be sure to select "Edit Skills" to equip him with capsules from the select menu as well with any support capsules that will help. Once done select Custom. I gave Broly the following capsules:

-Blaster Shell(you need)
-Well Chilled Juice

For the Break In fights simply spam his Blaster Shell death-move by pressing Toward + B. The A.I may counter it, but this will drain their Ki and after a while they wont be able to and you'll inflict damage. I used the Chilled Juice to get 5 free Ki bars by pressing A then Down, Down and it really helped with spamming Blaster Shells for wins.

Keep your distance and charge up Ki when needed to spam more Blaster Shells. Charge Ki by Holding A-button down then double tapping Away. This is a pretty easy way to deal with most of the A.I in Dragon Arena.

Note on Leveling Up: While leveling up on the side. Just always pick the World Tournament Stage. Back off to the edge and wait for the CPU to attack you. Just mash A-button and towards them until you teleport and attack them out of the ring. This has a decent success rate and is an easy way to level up. This also works for the World Tournament achievements especially if you use Omega Shenron
