Dragon Ball x One Piece: Cross Epoch (クロス エポック) is a Japanese manga by Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda. It is a crossover between their respective Dragon Ball and One Piece series. Cross Epoch was released on December 25th, 2006 in the Weekly Shōnen Jump, and it appeared in the April 2011 issue of the English Shonen Jump (issue #100).
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 Vegeta having horns and being the captain of a pirate crew, Master Roshi and Sanji being police officers, Krillin and Tony Tony Chopper being conductors of a roller coaster, 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.
