Heavem planet


Heaven (天国, Tengoku), called Upper World by Viz Media, is a gigantic planet in the Other World, covered with flowers and other plants.



A garden in Heaven

The planet resembles Earth, and has a strange glow around it. Everyone on the planet has a ghostly tail, as they have not been allowed to keep their bodies in death. Heaven is seen during the Great Saiyaman Saga, where King Kai and Goku meet South Kai and Papoi. It is also seen during the Fusion Saga, when Bulma, Chi-Chi, Videl and Dabura are looking for Gohan who they think is dead. Several years later, in Dragon Ball GT, Piccolo is sent to Heaven when he sacrifices himself when the Earth explodes.

Video games

Heaven can be visited in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury. However, less emphasis is put on this place than in the anime.

Known residents


  • Although it is called "Heaven", its function in the Dragon Ball series is more comparable to Limbo as it is accessible to those who, while having done good deeds, have not done enough to keep their bodies in the afterlife. The location also bears a resemblance to the Ancient Greek concept of Asphodel Fields, in which those who have done good deeds but have never managed to carry out heroic acts are destined to reach.
