1. RWBY and JNPR react to Dragon Ball Z Abridged

RWBY fanart fanfiction

In this story, the characters from RWBY watch episodes from Dragonball Z.

When they find the first episodes on Youtube, they hang out together and watch all the episodes, movies, and everything else they can find.

Then they discuss the show with each other.

This creates some very funny conversations and anecdotes.

It is a very elaborate story that discusses DragonBall Z in very specific elements.

So this story really is fun for both RWBY and DragonBall Z fans.

2. Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope

This story is a crossover between DragonBall and My Hero Academia.

The world where Izuku Midoriya lives has a true superhero society.

Without having a Quirk you are basically an outcast, and Izuku still doesn’t have one.

Then one day, he wakes up with a monkey tail, thinking this is the Quirk he was waiting for.

But it turns out he is really the Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope.

And this, of course, brings with it some challenges and perks.

This story is a great combination of both fandoms.

3. Genius Billionaire

This story is a massive crossover between multiple fandoms, including Dragon Ball, Marvel’s Avengers, Death Note, and more.

It takes place after the Avengers: Civil War, and Natasha has lost her faith in Tony Stark.

She seeks out a different billionaire to help with funds and support the Avengers.

But this isn’t going how she wants and has significant consequences for everyone and everything in this fanfic.

The main focus of this story is the Avengers.

All the other fandoms provide minor characters or qualities to add to the Avengers.

But it is still an original combination of worlds in a great storyline.

4. The Three Gods

This is another crossover between the Avengers and Dragon Ball.

After the Avengers Civil War, a spaceship enters the Earth’s atmosphere.

In it are a few Saiyans from a different universe out to help the Avengers in the war against Thanos.

Wanda and Steve aren’t too happy with this, but Tony is willing to accept the help they can get.

This story is an interesting take on the Avengers stories we know while combining them with a bunch of weird Saiyans.

It has a lot of funny and sarcastic moments but also stays true to the original characters.

5. One Day at a Time

This story is another crossover between Dragon Ball and My Hero Academia.

By random draw, it is decided that Uraraka and Bakugou will spend a year together in the hyperbolic time chamber.

But time in the chamber doesn’t pass the same way as on the outside.

So what is a year for them is only one day in the outside world.

The stay in the chamber has changed both Uraraka and Bakugou on the outside but also on the inside.

They are no longer the same and have formed a very special bond as well.

The story contains 17 chapters and dives into the creation of these heroes.

6. Long Live The King

In this story, we see Bulma and Trunks and also a little bit of Vegeta.

One day a man looking like Vegeta shows up on their lawn, shouting he is the king of the Saiyans.

Trunks then finds his mother for help.

When Bulma finds out who this person really is, she is surprised but also happy because this man is who he says he is, the King of the Saiyans.

This is a short story with only 1 chapter.

But it is also a fun fanfic combining the things we know from Dragonball Z and creating a new childhood story along the way.

7. Choices

This is an alternate universe story about how Vegeta and Bulma get together.

The writer has taken many key events from the first few seasons and changed them completely.

Goku did not die the moment he had to, making all the choices up to their absolution.

And when Bulma is abducted into space, Vegeta is the only one who can save her.

The writer called this a sort of Beauty and the Beast story in space, which covers much of the story.

The choices the characters make define everything that happens from there.

And it is an interesting concept to think about how our choices influence everyone around us.

There is some mature content when Vegeta and Bulma get together, but it is only a small part of the story.

8. Places That We Knew

In this story, we follow the blossoming relationship between Bulma and Vegeta.

We also learn through flashbacks how Vegeta’s childhood was because his childhood has played a large part in why he is the way he is now.

Vegeta has gone through some traumatic events and has always felt like he wasn’t good enough.

So when Bulma shows up, all stubborn and willing to be his friend, he doesn’t know how to deal with that.

He has to learn to be a friend and eventually a partner to Bulma.

This story contains 60 chapters with very elaborate descriptions of everything that happens to our friends.

It is written in a lovely way and gives more depth to Vegeta.

9. Life With You

The story starts with the marriage between Goku and ChiChi.

Goku promised to marry her, and so he does, even though nobody expected it.

We then follow these two through life as a married couple with all its highs and lows.

They start a family, and then tragedy hits with Goku dying and Gohan taken by Piccolo.

In the original story, six months pass before we return to the scene.

But in this fanfic, the writer explains everything that happened in those months.

This story has everything from action to romance to drama.

10. Never Ever Land

In this fanfic, we see a teenage version of Bulma, Goku, and Krillin while they are enjoying a night out.

But then everything goes wrong, and they have to save the earth.

Even though Goku is a Saiyan, he isn’t in control of all his powers yet.

And with a teenage Bulma along, this can cause some problems.

But then Bulma and Vegeta meet, and the story takes a completely different turn.

The story is set in the early stages of Dragon Ball but doesn’t follow the original timeline exactly.

There are also a few Disney references that fit perfectly into the story.
