East City (東の都), also known as Metro East and the East Capital, is one of the main capitals of Earth.
East City is where Vegeta and Nappa first land when they arrive on Earth. The major part of the city is completely destroyed when Nappa launches a Volcano Explosion shortly after reaching Earth with Vegeta, reducing the city to rubble. Vegeta admonishes Nappa afterward, conjecturing that there may have been a Dragon Ball there.
It was never mentioned if the inhabitants of this city killed by Nappa were revived by the Dragon Balls or not. Later, a recovery crew came to the ruins to investigate and to retrieve the two Attack Balls that the Saiyans arrived in, with Vegeta's suddenly leaving via a remote control and Nappa's exploding in front of them due to Bulma using the remote to try to control the space pod.

East City can be visited in Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans. After the arrival of the Saiyans, enemies encountered in the East City Ruins are Someone's Robot, Experiment #7, Experiment #9, Failed Experiment, Mad Scientist, and all the types of Saibamen featured in the game.
It is a playable battle stage in Super Dragon Ball Z. The Dr. Slump character Sourman can be seen rolling off across the street lying on a skateboard after a telephone booth is smashed by the fighting characters, and Oolong can be seen after a car is smashed.
East City is also a playable battle stage, called Eastern Capital, in the arcade game Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale.
In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, East City is found on the map of the Dragon Universe and can sometimes be visited. When playing as Vegeta and visiting East City, Vegeta destroys it.
It is one of the ten locations in the board game The Heroic Dragon Ball Z Adventure Game.
- In the censored version, it said that Nappa had destroyed an abandoned warehouse section and that nobody was harmed in the blast, when in reality it was in a busy metropolitan area as many bystanders are watching them moments before the blast and Vegeta comments on it being a shame that it is the weekend and that the office blocks would not be full.
