Dragon Ball Z: Buyū Retsuden is a video game in the Dragon Ball Z series, and the only Dragon Ball game exclusive to the Sega Genesis. It was heavily based on the Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden series for the SNES. It was only sold in France, Japan, and Portugal in 1994. The story was based around the manga's Cell and Frieza sagas.


The game was played in a complex way (in which you had to step back, then go forward for a simple Ki Blast as opposed to later Dragon Ball games, where only a simple button has to be pressed to execute a Ki Blast) that followed many fighting games of the time (similar to the popular Street Fighter II). Each character has a different move-set according to the style of fighting they have in the manga and anime, and each character has a "last target", which turns out to be the last opponent in the chosen character's story.


There are eleven playable characters in Buyū Retsuden. Some characters may be in other Super Saiyan forms. That means they are only playable in those forms, and aren't playable in any other form. The playable characters include:

  • Goku (Super Saiyan)
  • Gohan (Super Saiyan 2)
  • Piccolo
  • Vegeta (Super Saiyan)
  • Future Trunks (Super Saiyan)
  • Cell (Perfect)
  • Android 18
  • Krillin
  • Frieza (Final)
  • Recoome
  • Captain Ginyu
