A One Piece / Dragon Ball crossover, created by Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda. Cross Epoch was released on December 25th, 2006 in the Weekly Shonen Jump, and it appeared in the April 2011 issue of the English Shonen Jump 100 issue.
Long story short, Shenlong granted Mister Satan's wish to become a King. After that, he invites his friends to a tea party. The story then follows various pairs as they make it to the party.
The story is so out of place it could be a Crack Fic.
This series provides examples of:
- Actor Allusion: Pilaf is paired up with Buggy? Gee, wonder why...
- Crossover: Of One Piece and Dragon Ball
- Crossover Alternate Universe: Takes place in a world where One Piece and Dragon Ball universes merge together.

- Level Ate: where Shenlong goes after granting wishes.
- Mythology Gag / Call-Back: In the first chapter of Dragon Ball, Bulma mentions that someone once used the Balls to become a king. The story here starts with Mr. Satan wishing himself king.
