Contains the first three Dragon Ball Z movies: The Dead Zone, The World's Strongest, and The Tree of Might.
The Dead Zone
Gohan has been kidnapped! To make matters worse, the evil Garlic Jr. is gathering the Dragon Balls to wish for immortality. Only then will Garlic Jr. be able to take over the Earth in order to gain revenge for the death of his father.
Goku rushes to save Gohan, but arrives at the fortress just as Garlic Jr. summons the Eternal Dragon! Krillin and Piccolo try to help Goku, but their combined powers are no match for Garlic Jr., who creates a "Dead Zone" to suck the heroes into oblivion! Suddenly, Goku begins to show his hidden power, but will it be enough?!
The World's Strongest
Thanks to the Dragon Balls and his dedicated assistant Dr. Kochin, the evil Dr. Wheelo has been freed from his icy tomb. Now these mad scientists plot to take over the world with their fearsome biotechnology... but there's just one hitch: Dr. Wheelo's body died, and now his brain is living in a glass jar!
Dr. Wheelo seeks the best and strongest body on Earth to be the new home for his amazing brain, so Dr. Kochin and their android warriors kidnap Piccolo and Master Roshi in order to determine who is the world's strongest!
Goku, Gohan, and Krillin come to their friends' rescue, but Dr. Wheelo's henchmen are more than their equal! To make matters worse, Dr. Wheelo already controls Piccolo. His next target: Goku! Will our heroes be able to save the day or lose their minds?
Tree of Might
A seed of the Tree of Might has been planted on Earth by a group of space pirates. Once rooted, the Tree of Might will devour all life energy, leaving the land a deserted wasteland where no living thing can survive. Goku and friends try to destroy the tree, but their power is not enough.
Suddenly, they are attacked by the evil space pirates, and Gohan is captured by Turles, the evil leader of the group and a Saiyan! Turles powers up by eating a piece of fruit from the tree and begins a ferocious assault on Goku. Will Goku be able to rescue his son, defeat Turles, and save Earth?!
