1. There's so many episodes to watch!

Manga artist Akira Toriyama created the Dragon Ball series and has written 519 chapters of the story! 


2. Dragon Balls are magic!

If anyone in the Dragon Ball universe collects all 7 of these, they can summon the Eternal Dragon who will grant any wish. You can't get these in the shops, though.

3. Goku looks a bit like Dennis from the Beano!

Just look at his spiky hair! He just needs his very own Gnasher.

4. Vegeta is just like us!

He may be one of the strongest warriors in the Dragon Ball universe – but he has a fear of worms! Who likes those guys, right?

5. Korin is the coolest cat ever!

He's over 800 years old, has a magic staff and is a martial arts expert!

6. The Kamehameha energy blast!

It means means 'Turtle Destruction Wave' in Japanese and has been yelled 97 times during the series


7. It has the longest fight scene in anime history!

The fight between Goku and Frieza took 19 episodes to complete. That's over 3 1/2 hours! Best get some popcorn.

8. One of Goten's favourite snacks are Pocky Sticks!

Who doesn't love Japanese chocolate?

9. Master Roshi is one of the good guys!

This cool looking grandad is a wise warrior who taught Goku how to protect himself

10. Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F is amazing!

See Evil Frieza and his army of soldiers return in this follow-up to the equally brilliant Battle of Gods!
