The Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game (Dragon Ball CCG) is a collectible card game based on the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT series and first published by Bandai on July 18, 2008.

The game was previously released in other countries before making its debut in the United States. The game features exclusive artwork from all 3 series never before seen in the U.S. The game has similarities to the other CCG created by Bandai, the Naruto Collectible Card Game.

So far there are four series, Warriors Return, The Awakening, Destructive Fury and Fusion in this order. A fifth series is due out October 16, 2009.

Card Types and Rarity

The game includes four different types of cards: warrior, technique, event, and wish. Warrior cards are the characters who fight in the game, such as Goku, Piccolo, Vegeta, Frieza, and Cell. The technique cards are various attacks that can be used against your opponent in battle, such as the Kamehameha and the Genki Dama (also referred to as the Spirit Bomb). Various events in the series are also used in the game to change the dynamics of a battle. The wish cards are cards based on wishes made in the series that can be used when the seven Dragon Balls are collected.

There are different types of cards by rarity: common, uncommon, rare, super rare, and starter-exclusive super rares. There are also gold cards and holographic cards in booster packs.


The game features 5 different styles of cards: Super, Earth, Alien, Unique (mostly Namekian), and Villain.
