Eggs (卵, Tamago) are a common food and one of the most versatile ingredients used in cooking as well as hatching. They are important in many branches of the modern food industry.
King Piccolo Saga
Namekians breed asexually by spitting eggs out from their mouths. King Piccolo was the only Namekian seen to make these eggs on screen, but Grand Elder Guru is known to have given birth to more than a hundred Namekians like this.
One notable Namekian egg was the one King Piccolo made as he died, which spawned his son/reincarnation, Piccolo Jr.

After Goku defeats the Pilaf Gang who attacked them inside the volcano, he, Chi-Chi, and the scientist assist to the egg's hatching. Chi-Chi takes one of the egg's pieces, and Goku later uses it to repair the holes at the bottom of the Furnace of Eight Divisions that caused fire to emerge from underground and consume Ox-King's castle on Fire Mountain.

Majin Buu Saga
In the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming, Goten, Videl, and Trunks accidentally lose a Dragon Ball in a bird nest, and eventually find it. While commenting on what they should wish with the Dragon Balls (Trunks creating a theme park, and Goten desiring an endless supply of sweets), Goten accidentally sits on one of the eggs among the nests, causing the seabirds to react irately to their presence.
In the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the God of Destruction Beerus reduces an egg to ashes with only one finger using his special powers when Whis shows him the past battle between Goku and Frieza on Namek.
The Gatchans, characters from Dr. Slump who make appearances in Dragon Ball and in the movie Dragon Ball: Mystical Adventure, hatched from an egg brought home by Senbei Norimaki from a time traveling trip.
In Kajika, Dragon Eggs are extremely rare. The dragons of Ronron Island were thought to be extinct when a great storm killed the last two adults, but later, one egg was found and kept in the island's research institute. It was soon stolen by the gang leader and billionaire Gibachi because, according to legend, if one drinks the blood of a young dragon, they will gain tremendous power. This is because baby dragons have dragomin in their blood, which allows them to mature extremely fast. A girl named Haya retrieves the egg from Gibachi and goes on a quest to return it to the island. The main protagonist Kajika meets the girl and saves her from Gibachi's men. Haya then asks Kajika to help her on her quest. When the egg hatches, Gibachi and his men wound the young dragon, and Gibachi drinks its blood, which turns him into a powerful dragon-man.
Video game appearances
A side mission in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku requires finding a mother pterodactyl's egg. In Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II, the Z Fighters have to move a mother brontosaurus' eggs in order to destroy one of the generators of the barrier protecting Dr. Gero's Laboratory in the Northern Mountains.
Bio-Androids still in their egg are enemies in the computer game Dragon Ball Online. Additionally the Black Namekian Naraku hatches from the Evil Egg created by the evil in the hearts of the Namekians that settled next to King Piccolo's old throne.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it is revealed that despite being male the divine bird Tokitoki has the ability to lay eggs that can create time for an entirely new universe and it is the Supreme Kai of Time's duty to care for and protect these eggs. These eggs are so important that Whis decides to spar with Beerus and the Warrior to calm Beerus down after they are manipulated by Towa, indicating that even Angels like Whis will avoid letting anything bad happen to them. These eggs also contain a lot of Kili. As a result, Towa attempts to replicate Tokitoki's Eggs artificially however unbeknownst to her recreating them artificially is impossible and all her attempts result in Distorted Time Eggs which have the power to create large yet stable time rift anomalies. For unknown reasons, Towa places an egg in Frieza's Spaceship by giving it to Navel, while Mira places one at Majin Buu's house, the Masked Saiyan places one at Satan House, Turles places one at the Capsule Corporation where it is found by security and studied by Bulma, and Lord Slug asks Grand Elder Guru to take care of one for him, though Guru and Nail sense Slug's evil nature though do as he asks due to his power. This leads to the creation of several time rift anomalies which appear in Conton City though Chronoa and the Time Patrol contain them inside Time Miniatures which allow the Time Patrol to access them to investigate the cause. The 2nd Future Warrior is sent to investigate one of these rifts during the opening prologue which is determined by their selected race (Capsule Corp if they are Saiyan, Satan House if they are Earthling, Guru's House if they are Namekian, Majin Buu's House if they are Majin, and Frieza's Spaceship if they are Frieza Race). Eventually Chronoa asks them to look into all the rifts though each one is related to a specific race thus those races will encounter extra missions which can lead to unlocking special transformations. However regardless of race, completing certain objectives will lead the Warrior to receiving one of the Distorted Time Eggs. In Satan House, after aiding the Saiya Squad defend the peace as Great Saiyaman 3, Mr. Satan will give them the egg left by the Masked Saiyan. In Capsule Corporation, after training with Vegeta, Bulma will thank them and give them the egg left by Turles. Bulma jokes that the guy who left it might be a Saiyan wearing a Scouter based on the security's description of the intruder before stating that her analyzes detected a lot of energy coming from the egg which she had to keep away from her husband who was obsessed with fighting whatever hatched from it so she gives it to the warrior trusting they can handle it as they are strong enough to go toe-to-toe with Vegeta. In Majin Buu's House, Buu shows them the egg left by Mira. Buu reveals he asked Mira what he was doing but he told him to shut up and mind his own business. Buu was thinking about eating the egg but the Warrior convinces him that it is bad so he gives it to the warrior as thanks for helping him create a family. In Guru's House, after assisting Nail in defending the Namekian Dragon Balls from the Frieza Force, Guru shows them the egg left by Slug and suspects they will know what to do with it. In Frieza's Spaceship, after rising up the ranks of the Frieza Force, Navel reveals that he got the egg from a beautiful woman matching Towa's description and brought it on board and forgot about it before asking the warrior to deal with it as a favor. Chronoa is surprised by the eggs at first and even mistakes them for one of Tokitoki's eggs before realizing it is not one of them. She eventually figures out Towa must have created them but she's not sure what purpose that is. After collecting all the Eggs, Chronoa thanks the warrior and decides that since the rifts are stable she allows them to remain in Conton City allowing the warrior and other patrollers to visit them to interact with their inhabitants. Chronoa eventually figures out that Towa was trying to replicate Tokitoki's eggs but failed as Towa was unaware that doing such a thing was impossible. However, as a result, Towa decided to steal Tokitoki's Egg instead which leads to the events of the main story. Towa uses the Masked Future Warrior's mask to circumvent the barrier protecting the Time Nest and attacks Chronoa before stealing Tokitoki's Egg which she uses to free Mira from the Time Rift he got pulled into by Xeno Bardock. They then flee to Age ??? after Mira subdues the original future Warrior and Xeno Trunks, though the second Future Warrior gives chase. Mira and Towa confront the warrior in Age ??? as Towa plans to use the egg to open the seal on the Demon Realm, however Mira had changed due to his defeat at the hands of Super Saiyan 3 Xeno Bardock, causing him to gain a fighting spirit that drove him to exceed his own power limiter causing him to meltdown which could potentially destroy the universe causing Towa to join forces with the warrior to stop him. However Mira betrays Towa when she tries to fix him and absorbs both her and the egg to achieve his final form, which is even more powerful due to absorbing the egg. However Super Saiyan Blue Goku arrives to aid the Warrior and manages to get the egg back using his Dragon Fist allowing the warrior to finish Mira off with a Super Kamehameha. However back at the Time Nest Chronoa humorously has to stop Goku from trying to eat Tokitoki's Egg. Chronoa reveals that the egg will hatch soon, causing Goku to get excited and hopes the new universe has strong fighters. The Time Patrol later celebrates its return and Mira's defeat by Chronoa wishing up a feast using the Dragon Balls at the behest of Tokitoki who convinces her there are too many to cook for (when in reality it is to spare then from having to eat Chronoa's horrible cooking).
In Dragon Ball Heroes, Mechikabura attempted to steal one of Tokitoki's eggs in the past in order to become Supreme Kai of Time. It is implied that he was thwarted by Chronoa which would explain his vendetta against her.
- The name "egg", is also a pun for Tagoma, one of Frieza's soldiers in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.
