"The following is a fan-based parody. Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super are all owned by Funimation, Toei Animation, Shueisha,note and Akira Toriyama. Please support the official release."Dragon Ball Z Abridged is a notable Abridged Series of Dragon Ball Z created by Team Four Star, beginning production in 2008. The series quickly set itself apart from others of its kind for featuring a Super Group of Abridged Series content creators, and is far and away one of the most popular on the internet.The first two seasons, covering the Saiyan Saga and the Namek/Freeza Saga respectively, have been completed, along with several specials and a majority of the movies. The third season — covering the Android/Cell Saga — is nearly complete with only a three-part finale remaining incomplete, and a fourth season covering the Buu Saga is in the planning stages. The series is currently on hiatus due to a number of external factors, but Team Four Star is compensating fans with additional content elsewhere.The series has a recap page, currently under construction. For a similar concept executed differently, see Alternate Reality DBZ.This list includes tropes from videos of two Dragon Ball movies made with most of TeamFourStar's cast, but pre-dating TeamFourStar, for convenience's sake.
