Black Star Dragon Balls Saga
Five years have passed since the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku is accidentally turned back into a child by Ultimate Shenron, a much more powerful version of Shenron created by the Nameless Namekian (before he split into Kami and King Piccolo) who can grant any single wish, regardless of any restrictions placed on the other dragons, summoned from the Black Star Dragon Balls by his old enemy Emperor Pilaf. He is then forced to travel across the universe to retrieve them, accompanied by his granddaughter Pan and Trunks. The Earth will explode if he does not recover them within a year. The trio goes through various adventures in their journey to find the Black Star Dragon Balls until they encounter the artificial Tuffle parasite, Baby, who intends to destroy the Saiyan race as his revenge for their extermination of the Tuffles many years ago.
Goku and the others come upon Dr. Mu and his most incredible creation, Baby, while seeking the Dark Dragon Balls. As the last survivor of the Tsufruian species, Baby swears revenge on all Saiyans, innocent or guilty. As friends turn enemies, Goku must battle those he loves to kill Baby and restore peace to the Earth.
Super Android 17 Saga
Dr. Myuu (Baby’s inventor) and Dr. Gero (founder of the Red Ribbon Army androids) make an evil clone of Android 17 in Hell and have it control the actual Android 17 so that a portal from Hell to Earth opens, resulting in a widespread invasion of the world by resurrected villains. The original Android 17 tries to mind control Android 18, but Krillin intervenes. He was furious, and 17 killed Krillin by sending an energy beam into his heart. The two Android 17s then combine to form Super 17, which promises to destroy humanity and avenge the Red Ribbon Army’s loss at the hands of Goku. Super 17 appears to be invincible to Goku’s strikes.
When 18 attacks him to revenge for Krillin’s murder, Goku uses the diversion to puncture Super 17 with his Super Dragon Fist technique, then unleashes a Rapid-Fire Kamehameha that destroys him.
Shadow Dragons Saga
The Dragon Balls are gathered to resurrect Super 17, including Krillin. An evil black dragon, however, appears and separates into seven Shadow Dragons. They set out to destroy the Earth to punish humanity for their continual abuse of the Dragon Balls. Goku and Pan defeat all save the most formidable, Syn Shenron. Syn Shenron looks on the verge of defeat until he consumes the Dragon Balls and transforms into Omega Shenron, exceeding even Super Saiyan 4 Goku’s might. Goku is prepared to make a sacrifice to slay the wicked monster. Nonetheless, Vegeta intervenes and transforms into a Super Saiyan 4 with the assistance of Bulma’s newest invention, the Blutz Wave Generator. Goku and Vegeta use the Fusion Dance method to generate.
Goku and Vegeta fuse using the Fusion Dance method to form Gogeta, who utilizes his enormous Power to annihilate Omega Shenron. However, after becoming overconfident in his abilities to defeat Omega Shenron, he wastes too much time attempting to embarrass him. Gogeta then defuses, returning Goku and Vegeta to their original forms. Eventually, Goku produces the massive Super Ultra Spirit Bomb using the energy of every living being in the cosmos and uses it to kill Omega Shenron finally.
The actual Shenron then returns from the rebuilt Dragon Balls to offer Goku and his allies one last wish, which they use to resurrect everyone murdered by Super 17 and the Shadow Dragons, before disappearing – along with Goku and the Dragon Balls. Several decades later, Goku’s great-great-grandson, Goku Jr., fights in the 64th World Martial Arts Tournament against Vegeta’s descendant, Vegeta Jr., as Pan, now in his eighties, cheers him on. Pan notices a revitalized adult Goku and attempts to approach him, but he immediately vanishes into the crowd. Goku then departs the World Martial Arts Tournament with a flashback of events from his reality. Following the conclusion of the flashback, Goku grabs his Power Pole and flies away on his Flying Nimbus cloud, carrying the story of Dragon Ball to an end.
