Dragon Ball Absalon is an web-animated series based on the Dragon Ball franchise created by Mellavelli.

The story takes place 12 years after the events of Dragon Ball GT, with the Earth facing a new threat in the form of mysterious invaders, who come to Earth searching for Saiyans to recruit. Now, the Z-Fighters must do all they can to protect the Earth and stop whatever the invaders are trying to do.


Dragon Ball Absalon has examples of:

  • Artificial Limbs: Future Gohan sports a cybernetic arm to replace the one he lost to the Future Androids.
  • Ax-Crazy: By Future Gohan's own admission, the Truhan fusion is unstable and prone to losing any mercy when fused for too long.
  • Back from the Dead:
    • Cyborg wishes to revive Broly in order to recruit him.
    • Future Gohan was revived sometime before the events of the series in his own time by Future Trunks.
  • Body Horror: As a side effect of taking a serum to become more powerful, Pirika's left arm eventually starts to mutate and enlarge once he becomes a Super Saiyan 4.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: While Kosho is right in a way about fear holding a person back from growing stronger, Gohan also points out that having no fear can make a person arrogant, leading them to their own demise since they don't know their limits.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Majuub's eyes turn red once Super Buu awakens in his mind.
