'''''Dragon Ball Z''''' is the anime adaptation of the second half of the ''Manga/DragonBall'' manga. While the manga kept its original name throughout its run in Japan, the anime's title [[LetteredSequel was changed]] from ''Dragon Ball'' to ''Dragon Ball Z'' in 1989, and the focus had changed from a [[SupernaturalMartialArts Martial Arts]] {{Comedy}} series (inspired by ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'') to [[CerebusSyndrome more serious and violent battles]] (and Creator/AkiraToriyama [[WordOfGod thought it would be ending soon]]). As such, ''Dragon Ball Z'', is often used to refer both to the anime and this portion of the manga.

Followed by the controversial ''Anime/DragonBallGT''. There was also a [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMORPG]] continuation known as ''VideoGame/DragonBallOnline'' that existed for a while. A filler-free recut, ''Anime/DragonBallKai'', premiered in 2009. This sub-series has also spanned fifteen movies and two special episodes. The first thirteen movies are [[NonSerialMovie non-serial movies]], but the fourteenth movie, ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'', is considered canon to the manga and set some time after the Buu Saga. A direct sequel to ''Battle of Gods'' was announced- ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', which involves Frieza's troops finding the Dragon Balls and reviving him.

Then, 18 years after the conclusion of ''Dragon Ball GT'', Toei Animation announced ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', a whole new sequel to ''Dragon Ball Z'', set after the Majin Buu Arc starting in July on Fuji Television. This series first adapts the events of the two manga-canonical films before getting into its own new story, and is likewise considered canon to the manga.

%%"Cha-La Head-Cha-La", "Rock The Dragon", "Dragon Ball Z Theme (Android Saga)", and the "English 'uncut' Dragon Ball Z Theme" (Toonami; Saiyan Saga)
