In Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans, before they leave Kame House to train for the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, Master Roshi asks Krillin, Yamcha, and Tien Shinhan to go in a cave on Training Island and retrieve the Crystal Ball his sister gave him. There, Roshi confronts the boys disguised as Jackie Chun to test them. Once they bring back the Crystal Ball, Roshi gives it to them as a reward for completing their training at Kame House. The Crystal Ball is then used in the menu to display the Z Fighters' objectives, the enemy list, and the Z Fighters' team attacks. Also in Attack of the Saiyans, Kami's Crysta Ball is a capsule item named Kami's Eyes that prevent enemies from sneak-attacking the Z Fighters.
In Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen, Goku must find a Crystal Ball in one of the three planets he can explore in order to pass the Dark Planet's magnetic protections. On the second planet, he meets a fairy stuck inside a Crystal Ball. He breaks it and free the fairy by transforming into a Super Saiyan.
A crystal ball is one of the treasures found in the sixth stage of Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo.
- There is a large inconsistency in the strength of Baba's Crystal Ball. In the Vegeta Saga, her ball exploded because it was overwhelmed by the incredible powers of Goku and Vegeta. However, in the Cell Games Saga, it had no such problem, despite most (if not all) of the Z Fighters, as well as Cell, being many times stronger than they were in the Vegeta Saga.
