What is Dragon Ball?

Dragon Ball is a Japanese franchise that originated with a manga published in Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1985 by Akira Toriyama. The original work ended its publication 11 years later after 519 chapters and more than 25 sagas. Dragon Ball was adapted into two animes, called Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. In addition, other adaptations have expanded the story like the Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super animes, as well as a vast array of TV specials, OVA’s, Public Service Videos, 4D attractions, animated films, and even a Live Action Movie.

All Dragon Ball filler episodes

A filler is an episode of the anime that is not based on the original manga. They are usually created so that the animation series doesn’t get too close to the manga on which it is based. This list presents all Dragon Ball episodes that are filler.
