Any tropes related to events after that moment (In the manga, from Volume 17 onward) should be placed in the pages for Anime/DragonBallZ.

In the first half of the ''Dragon Ball'' manga (which served as the source material for the ''Dragon Ball'' anime), Goku and a huge cast of friends and enemies search for the magical Dragon Balls that they could use to make a wish come true. Of course, no sooner had someone gathered and used the Dragon Balls than they would have to be sought out again. On top of all this, Goku was training up to fight in the periodic "Strongest Under the Heavens" tournament. The series is generally broken down into the following sagas: Emperor Pilaf, the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, the Red Ribbon Army, the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament (Tenshinhan), Demon King Piccolo, and the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament (Piccolo Jr), with minor filler plots. After defeating these major threats to the world, Goku, now a young adult, finally won the tournament on his third attempt and went off to get married.
