Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II is a major improvement over the previous game (such as following the anime's storyline a lot more closely), and probably one of Webfoot's best DBZ titles.
A debug menu exists which can be accessed by using the Codebreaker code 0202B32D:02 (US versions) or 0202B371:02 (Japanese version) while the game is starting up, then pressing and holding Start at the title screen. The player can listen to music tracks and sound effects, as well as teleport to any level. When going to any level, all six characters will be available, with each one of them being upgraded to a certain degree.
Included in the debug menu sound test is one unused track.
Track 27 is never heard in-game, but ends with the same ominous synth used in track 06.

Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: What exactly does the anti-piracy check for? What's the savetype that the game uses?
The anti-piracy triggers at the point Gohan presses A to go to the world map for the first time from East District 439. The US and EU versions show up dead center of the screen by default whilst the Japanese version has it appear on the bottom. You are then booted back to the title screen. It could be checking for the save type used like in Buu's Fury.
Various text strings related to errors and the developers' hard drive can be found in the ROM in each version of the game. The Japanese version, which came out later, contains a lot more of it than the other two versions. While nothing special, it does reveal the game was coded in C++ Language, since ".cpp" files are associated with the C++ programming language. The same is true with Buu's Fury.

There is a crash handler that seems to only work on the Japanese version.
|This sound error message can be triggered by enabling the code 03007D510E during the opening cutscene.
|This message can be triggered by enabling the debug screen on the Japanese version, warping to zone 10, area 16, and then progressing with the dialogue. It can be assumed that the error occurs because the game attempted to move a character that was not currently loaded.|
||If you attempt a glitch that involves shooting several ki blasts simultaneously, you could get one of these two screens.|
In the European version, the opening FMV played in the US and JP (International) versions is removed to make room for the other languages.
For some reason, all the story-relevant characters had their portraits changed when the game was localized in Japan. This does fix mistakes with Gohan's Super Saiyan 2 portrait and Imperfect Cell's portrait, but adds an error where Gohan wears the wrong battle armor when Frieza arrives on Earth. The SSJ Trunks portrait used in the menu was also changed to match the one used during cutscenes.
