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!


Dude...Full five on rating...

You're getting a hellacious score before I even watch it simply cause you did one of my favorite scenes in the entire series. It'd be even better if you did Gohan going SSJ-2.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Thankyou for the review. I hope to do Gohan SSJ2 after Vegeta SSJ...

that was awsome!!!!!

dude you need to do that again but do it with goku turning ss lvl3
and try to get a voice over that woude make it the best flash ever!!!

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

I will do Goku SSJ3, eventually.
I have explained why there are no voices in this too many times before...
Glad you liked it.

Simply Great

That is simply a absoulutly great flash animation of how Goku whent SSJ. I really, really liked it.I also think Blur was right, to make one of when Goku Killed Buu with a Spirit bomb would be kick ass. Not many people have done shit on Buu.Anywayz great movie, catch ya later.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Thanks a lot, m8. I'm thinking maybe after my ssj tributes i will make a death collection of the deaths of frieza, cell, buu.

Amazing Tribute

A remake of the scene from the show done beautifully. The animation is amazing. Definately one of the best tributes I've seen yet.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Well, thankyou very much! ^_^ I try my best.

only one word can decribe this WOW

This is one of the best scens from DBZ when goku turned ssj and kick the shit out of freeza. all that would make this even better if there were voices and some fighting in it.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Alas, that was not what I set out to do.
I just wanted to do the scene and no more...
