"Ginyu Transformation" is a Dragon Ball Z theme composed by Bruce Faulconer. It is featured in Best of Dragon Ball Z: Volume 2. As its name suggests, the music was originally played whenever Captain Ginyu switched bodies. It was later reused throughout the remainder of the anime to represent doom or destruction, such as when Kid Buu destroys Earth.


This piece was played when a villain was destroyed by a hero (e.g. Goku, Gohan, etc.), and even a few other occurrences. Here are the list of episodes in which this theme is played:
