Shenron, who has just granted Mr. Satan's wish to become a king, has invited his friends over for a little tea party on an island filled with giant desserts. The various characters from their respective series are trying to make their way to the party. Some of the characters are changed physically and in place, such as Krillin and Chopper being conductors of a roller coaster, Bulma and Nami being thieves, Master Roshi and Sanji being police officers, Vegeta having horns and being the captain of a pirate crew, or Piccolo being a swordsman with Roronoa Zoro. They encounter obstacles such as the Pilappaggy Villain Union along the way, but they all make it to the party in the end.
