* ''Synopsis'':"Daddy, I don't want you to die!" The girl said with all her being, as if the energy of her words alone would have the strength to decide over her father's fate. "Please!" / Vegeta looked at her for a second or two, at loss of words, then frowned."Who told you this nonsense?" He growled with casual authority in his voice, sounding more coarse than he had both expected and wanted. A heart warming one-shot about an injured Vegeta (recovering after battle) playing it tough for his pride and his four year old daughter Bra.

* ''Synopsis'':What if EVERYTHING that happened in DB/Z/GT was a vision of Bardock's? The psychic Saiyan struggles to honor Goku's memory, serve his king, raise Kakarot, and keep Earth from being purged by his own people after evacuating Planet Vegeta. But by trying to sustain the world he remembers, he drastically begins to change Goku's loved ones along the way. It's a brave new world!
* ''Comments'': A must see for all long time Dragon Ball fans, the amount of detail given to each character is fantastic to read. Bardock's character development is slow but rewarding and satisfying, this is most probably the best AU fanfiction ever conceived and if anyone is skeptical this troper urges you to read the first couple of chapters. What's more the way the story progresses is phenomenal as well, as the story continues the main plot shifts from just focusing solely on Bardcok to his entire family is rather enthralling to read.

* ''Comments'': If you ever wanted Goku to have his biological family back, this fic is right for you. The story is well written, the plot is engaging, and the author isn't afraid of deviating from canon, since yes, Bardock, Gine and Raditz's presence in the story dramatically [[ForWantOfANail alters how some events develop]], and even if others [[InSpiteOfANail happen in a similar fashion to canon]], [[NotHisSled don't assume anything]]. The author also goes to great lengths to keep the human cast relevant (Chi-chi included, who not only is she [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap much more likeable]] while keeping true to her character, but her friendship with Gine is a joy to read. Overall, a pretty excellent fanfic that won't disappoint.

* Recommended by the_highwayman
* ''Status'': Dead
* Pairing(s): Krillin/Android 18
* Synopsis: The path to True Love is an arduous one. After years of bad luck, the girl of Krillin's dreams has finally walked into his life. But unfortunately - so has the woman of his nightmares. A Romantic Comedy... with Cyborgs.
* Comments: Features an interesting plot and a tone that I think really captures the series' humor. The author incorporates a surprising amount of the supporting cast and introduces us to a few new characters who are pretty fun. All in all it's the most hilarious, heartwarming and genuine portrayal I've ever seen of this pairing. I cannot recommend it enough.

* This Website/YouTube creator uses mods from ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' to create WhatIf stories featuring some of the main characters. This "VS" saga is a series of battles that take place in different dimensions and timelines where a fight between original characters fight the canon ones. Some of these characters are [[AlternateSelf versions of the main cast]] who come from timelines where anything ''else'' can happen. Such What Ifs "if Vegeta became King", "if Goku never hit his head", or "if DBZ Broly and ''Super'' Broly met". There are also some battle reenactments from the ''Dragon Ball Super'' anime such as "Goku Vs Jiren". This channel is where epic battles in many forms happen! This [=YouTuber=] has made a fan series called ''Dragon Ball Taiyou''. Here of some of the videos:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6u6ax0YTgw&list=PL6OLO-4WKWiVlGyGJsR5cn6l60TXLTimF&index=2&t=0s Goku vs Kakarotto!]]: Our Goku faces off against Kakarot, a version of Goku who never hit his head when he was a baby and remembers his Saiyan heritage.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lu5G5r_zTA&list=PL6OLO-4WKWiVlGyGJsR5cn6l60TXLTimF&index=2 Xeno Vegeta VS King Vegeta II!]]: The Vegeta from the ''GT'' timeline fights a version of Vegeta who is the '''king''' of all Saiyans! Also in the latter's universe, Frieza was killed by the Saiyans and they all rose to power.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8zf_b1r2Bk&list=PL6OLO-4WKWiVlGyGJsR5cn6l60TXLTimF&index=4&t=86s Broly VS Broly!]]: A fight between the Broly from the DBZ movies and the Broly from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnpniTblwoY&list=PL6OLO-4WKWiVlGyGJsR5cn6l60TXLTimF&index=5 Vegeta VS King Vegeta II!]]: Our Vegeta faces off against the King of All Saiyans as well.

* Recommended by: Tropers/VulgarBee
* Status: Dormant; last updated June 2, 2017.
* Synopsis: After defeating the mighty Omega Shenron, Goku and the Eternal Dragon departed from Earth. At long last, the planet could enjoy a time of peace and harmony. About 100 years have past since Goku's departure, and with the dragon balls restored, a new story is about to begin...with Goku's great-great grandson Goku Jr!
* Tags:
* Comments: This apparently takes place after the World Tournament at the end of ''Anime/DragonBallGT''. It's so cool that the author is WorldBuilding the ''Dragon Ball'' franchise some more. The characters are even interesting in personality and mystery. Since it takes awhile for a new chapter and page, it makes you want more to know about the characters and the villains and their motives!

* ''Synopsis'': Thirteen years is a long time to live a nightmare, yet this is where Gohan finds himself. With all of his comrades dead, the future of the world resting on his shoulders, there is only one thing he can do: survive. This is the story of Gohan's struggle against the Androids in the Future timeline.
* ''Comments'': For a DBZ fanfic, this one is the most emotional and the most epic. This tells the story of a man's struggle against monsters not even those stronger than him were able to defeat. You will cry, you will go "awww", you will even go "No! Give Gohan a break!" If you like ''Anime/DragonBallZTheHistoryOfTrunks'', you will definitely love this fanfic!
