Welcome to the Dragon Ball work group, a task force that aims to organize, expand, clean up, and guide Dragon Ball-related articles on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, you can simply start by editing any Dragon Ball pages, or join the project below and/or contribute to the discussion on the talk page. Be sure to also check out the to-do list for some of the project's ongoing tasks.

You may also be interested in joining our parent project, WikiProject Anime and manga, which is dedicated to all anime and manga articles on Wikipedia.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Scope[edit]

Dragon Ball is a Japanese metaseries (somewhat, not entirely). It began as a weekly serialized manga (519 chapters and one special), then adapted to an anime (three series, three TV specials, 18 feature films), and spawned dozens of home and arcade video games, toys, clothing, mugs, keychains, action figures, wall scrolls, and other merchandise. Dragon Ball has been translated into dozens of languages in many countries.

All information should be based on the original versions. Mainly, this will mean the Japanese versions (though at least one video game will refer to the English version). Because there are so many, no single English adaptation can be used as the English version. Besides the out-of-print adaptations, there are at least three English anime dubs and another company doing the manga, as well as another company translating the video games (which has been inconsistent at best). It would be inappropriate to pick any single distribution company over another.

The scope of the project will extend to include the manga, anime, video games merchandise. More specifically, the project will include:

  • The manga, television anime, feature films, video games, music;
  • The Dragon Ball universe in general;
  • Individual characters and other elements;
  • Use of mythology, geology, and other inspirations within the series;
  • Dragon Ball as a cultural phenomenon; and
  • English language adaptation of the metaseries.

While not specifically part of the project (as such articles are not focused on Dragon Ball), the following topics should be looked into as well:

  • Cast, crew, distribution companies, production companies of Dragon Ball related items.

Our scope does not include:

  • Fanfiction and fan culture;
  • Dōjinshi;
  • Any other form of speculation; and
  • Works with only a passing reference to Dragon Ball.
