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 4.5 / 5 stars


This was one cool movie it is identical to the show, even the speech was exactly the same as in the show. As some people have already mentioned, Goku did look a little strange I must admit, more so at the arms and a little bit at the head when moving around. i.e Transforming into Super Saiyan.

It would be nice if you could have added the Goku and Frieza fight scene. I don't mean to offend you or anything like that I'm just suggesting how you can improve.

I Can't wait for Super Saiyan Vegeta :D

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Well, I was only going to make a tribute to the transformation anyway.
It will be the same for Vegeta SSJ, which is much better...

Thanks for the review. ^_^

But thanks for the review anyway.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I think this deserves an 11 overall.
Amazing!!!!!!!!!! Artistic work was awesome.
No humor because it emulated one of the colest events from the show. 7 sound because there was no talking to be heard. Amazing job man!!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I've explained why I decided to not put in voices... It's tacky and hard to synch...
Anyway, thanks for the review...


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice

I like the Frieza getting punched scene at the end the most. You can draw very well, I recommend working on the animation a tad, but thats about it.

And as for Ryuken1, how would you feel if Goku was beating your ass up instead of Frieza's you coward, man. Anyone who wishes for the death of an innocent doesn't deserves to have anything enjoyable in life, and if I had it my way, shouldn't deserve to remain one of the living either.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Animation in Vegeta SSJ is much improved, a lot more frame by frame work in it...


Rated 5 / 5 stars

HAHAHAHAHA! Krillin died.

I gave this a 10 for humor because I never liked bald Krillin because his voice was so childish and his jokes were so stupid. The Krillin with hair rocked, but thats beyond the point. Anyway, this is perfectly remade, and this is one of the greats on this website. Thank you for putting so much hard work into this flash for us, the fans.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Krillin isn't that bad...
Anyway, thanks for the review...
