[[Category:{{{1}}}|Dragonball movie/episode order?]]

Please see Movies page here:

There is a full list of the movies, OVA's, Specials etc. there in chronogical order. - User:Kill You/sig 17:30, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Personally, I simply first finished off watching the series both when watching Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. After finishing Dragon Ball, I watched Dragon Ball Movies. (considering they were all alternate stories to the series, unlike DBZ, it's just fine.) After finishing DBZ, I started watching the movies yet again. Well, when you watch them you can guess what sagas between a movie is, actually. Even if not, it's still no big issue as you get to see a complete separated story/stories when watching the moveis. - User:Kill You/sig 17:39, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Helo There,
I watched the series and the movies around the same time. So i know what the best time is to watch all the movies.
Some of the movies don't realy link to the series but based on age and abilities of the Z figthers a made this list. Also some of the movies are based on happenings in the series.
Here is my list:

All the Dragonball (not Z) movies are alternative story lines. Beter watch them after the Dragonball episodes.

Dragonball Z
Dead Zone - Around the start of DragonBall Z.
World's Strongest - Along side the end of Saiyan Saga. After Goku gets back from King KaI.
Tree of Might - Same as above. (but everyone is stronger then they should be at that time. Like they are on Namek, but Goku isn't an Super Saiyan yet)
Lord Slug - Same as above.
Cooler's Revenge - After Frieza Saga.
Return of Cooler - Along side the Android Saga. Before the Cell Saga.
Super Android 13 - Same as above.
Broly: Legendary Super Saiyan - During the Cell Saga.
Bojack Unbound - After the Cell Saga.
Broly: The Second Coming - Along side the Majin Buu Saga.
Bio-Broly - Same as above. After the World Martial Arts Tournament ended.
Fusion Reborn - After Goku beats Kid Buu.
Wrath of the Dragon: - Same as above.
Special 01: Bardock Father Of Goku - The Story play's before Dragoball begins but it's recommended to watch it after the Frieza Saga.
Special 02: The History Of Trunks - Best to watch this after the Android Saga.
Special 03: The Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans - Best to watch this after the Cell saga.
Special 04: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!! - Best to watch this after Dragonball Z.

Dragonball GT
GT Movie: A Hero's Legacy - Best to watch this after Dragonball GT.

I hope you enjoy my list.

Most Movies don't follow any order thus it doesn't really matter but some do e.g The Bojack Movie takes place near exactly after the cell games.

Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan took place during the 10-day wait for the Cell Games, NOT after the Cell Games (otherwise Gohan would be able to go SSJ2)

Plan To Eradicate The Saiyans OVA: same as above

- How can Cooler's Revenge possibly come after the Frieza Saga when Goku doesn't even come back to earth until the end of the Trunks Saga???? Cooler's REvenge comes after the Trunks Saga and Before the Android Saga.--John.fletcher.52459 (talk) 10:14, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

Here is what I would think on timeline placement of DBZ movies:

Dead Zone - Before DBZ, however, it doesn't explain why everyone was surprised.
World's Strongest - Along side the end of Saiyan Saga. After Goku gets back from King Kai without being delayed, meaning less to 0 deaths for the Z-Fighters.
Tree of Might - Same as above.
Lord Slug - Same as above.
Cooler's Revenge - After Frieza Saga if the Spirit Bomb killed Frieza(due to no SSJ until the last fight).
Return of Cooler - Android Saga if Kamicllo killed/defeated Androids 17 and 18
Super Android 13 - Same as above.
Broly: Legendary Super Saiyan - During the 10 day wait, but it doesn't fit due to the whole "stay in SSJ until the 10 day wait is over."
Bojack Unbound - After the Cell Saga. Nothing seems to prevent it and can fit in with canon like Battle of Gods.
Broly: The Second Coming - would say before WMAT.
Bio-Broly - After WMAT, before Buu.
Fusion Reborn - Due to SSJ3 being shown, I would say it was after either Gotenks or Gohan killed Buu. Since they know fusion, both Goku and Vegeta are dead, Gohan was using Ultimate instead of SSJ, and Videl seems to be with the Son family at the start, implying they are already starting to be together.
Wrath of the Dragon: - I honestly have no idea.
Battle of Gods - Canon, before EoZ.
