Theme Guide

Ending Themes


Listed below are ending songs used throughout the Dragon Ball animated franchise, including both the theatrical films and television series. The songs are arranged by series and then further by order of appearance. Basic information for each song has been listed here, with a more detailed look at each song available via the song’s linked title.

During the series’ original run, there were by far more ending themes used than opening themes. This is mostly because while each movie used a widescreen version of its respective TV series opening theme, the majority of the movies received their own unique ending theme and animation. However, by today’s standards the TV series still have very few ending themes, as most anime these days change ending themes and animation almost every 10-15 episodes. At the time, Dragon Ball GT was the only series of the three that came close to today’s anime; although it was the shortest series with only 64 episodes, it had more ending themes than Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z combined. This has since changed with Dragon Ball Super, which rotates its ending theme roughly every 13 episodes.

The ending themes for the recent Jump Super Anime Tour special, Dragon Ball Kai, and eventually Dragon Ball Super were the first new ending themes for the series since Dragon Ball GT ended in 1997. At this time there has still been no full-length, official release of the Jump Super Anime Tour special ending theme, “Orange Hero”.
