Soldiers of the Galactic Frieza Army on Planet Frieza 79 are seen wearing Ray Gun belts. In the OVA Dragon Ball Z: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, God Guardon uses the Ray Gun on his arm against Goku. In the anime, a flashback shows the Tuffles firing beams at the Saiyans during the Saiyan-Tuffle war.
In Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, Sorbet's Bad Ring Laser is actually a ring-shaped Ray Gun (which is pointed out by Frieza later in the film). Sorbet's Bad Ring Laser demonstrates that Frieza Force's Ray Gun technology has advanced along with their Medical Machine technology, as despite its size it is powerful enough to injure even Super Saiyan Blue Goku with a single shot to the chest while his guard was down.
In Dragon Ball Super, the intergalactic criminals Gryll and his henchmen use ray guns while invading Planet Potaufeu to obtain the "Superhuman Water", and while engaging Goten, Trunks and Vegeta in battle.
In Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, a five year old Bulma invented a Laser Gun with blasting capabilities powerful enough to impress Galactic Patrolman Jaco to the point he even asked Bulma if she would consider joining the Galactic Patrol when she was older.
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Jaco wields the Galactic Patrol's standard issue Ray Gun which he uses as part of two of his Super Skills (Elite Beam & Elite Shooting) and as the finishing blast of his Ultimate Skill, Super Elite Combo.
- On an image the series' author, Akira Toriyama, made for the 1989 Weekly Shōnen Jump #47, Krillin wields a green laser sword and Bulma has a laser gun similar to those of Star Wars. This artwork is also featured in Daizenshuu 1. It should be noted that Akira Toriyama has stated that he is a big fan of the Star Wars series.
