Wow. Got onto the DBZ Collections! A big THANKYOU to Tom and Wade!
Anyway, work is well underway for my next tribute, watch out for it! ;)

If you liked this animation, please give me a review, I try and reply to them all, so give me a review to let me know what you think, thanks.

Well this is my first submission to newgrounds and my first true animation now don't switch off and blam, cos this is my first animation, this isn't like the crappy first animations most submit! This is fully drawn, and well animated!
I started this in around October and throughout this animation you can see my drawing skills improving.

If you're a DBZ fan you'll LOVE this, if you're a neutral and decide to vote on how well done this is you'll find this to be good, if you hate DBZ and blam anything with DBZ in it then please, leave now.

This was a college project and we were originally supposed to do a storyboard of 4-5 (original or based on a tv show or movie of you choice, I chose a DBZ tribute) scenes and put into Flash and add some sound, smooth animation and tweens, well I done over 50 scenes with many sounds and music and I got a merit (which means I showed initiative and went beyond the set goals that had to be met) pass for this, it really is that good.

This is when Goku turns SSJ for the first time on Planet Namek, this is from the time Krillin gets blown up until the time Goku goes SSJ and Frieza is wondering: WTF?!

The music is from the Japanese and English versions of Dragonball Z. It features the original Jap theme song "Cha-la Head Cha-la" (used as main theme for this animation) by Kageyama Hironobu as well as the SSJ fight theme from the Jap DBZ. The other music is "SSJ Transformation" and "Rock the Dragon" by Bruce Falcouner. There are sound effects for lightning, rocks cracking and wave sounds and I can't remember where I found those, but credit to the creators of them.

OK some specifications for best performance:
If your PC is under 1000MHz or you are running many programs turn down the quality so the music is synched right.
If you computer is 1000MHz or higher then it should run perfectly.

Special Thanks go to John Butler, my 2D animation lecturer for helping me with the preloader and teaching me flash and also Akira Toriyama for creating DBZ!

Now, on with the show! ENJOY!

Rated 5 / 5 stars


this has to be graphically one if the best dbz movies i have seen. it would have been a whole lot better if you would have put sound clips from the show into it. oh, and when he was about to turn SS, and his hair was going from black to yellow, his hair would also go from the reg. position to SS position and then back. other than that awsome movie.

People find this review helpful!
Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I did it exactly like it happened in the show I was using for reference.

Great Job!

I personally liked this flash. It was really well drawn and the music was excellent. Anyone who reviewed this and gave it a zero based on personal bias needs to screw off. There I said it. Give the Author and every non-lamer on NG a break.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Thankyou for the well justified review! I know what you mean, people who "review" to tell me that I suck or whatever shouldn't be allowed to review! They obviously don't know what a review is...

Man that was so pimp. It brought back so many memories. Good work and make another one

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

"pimp"? Er.. thanks for the review anyway. Another will be done (eventually).


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Amazing. Perfect 10 out of 10. I'd love to see it animated to the sound clip from the actual episode though.

But hell yeah, awesome. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked it!
