My personal canon goes as follow:

Jaco + a mix of Minus and Bardock TV Special
DB Manga + mix of TV serie (OG + Z)
DBS Manga + mix of TV serie + Mix of BoG and RoF movie

And you put also in it movies such as the Garlic Jr movie, Cooler first movie and Bojack movie. I don't think I see other stuff who that will makes somewhat sense realisticaly speaking :problem:

Never thought I would give a shot but let’s see.

- Dragon Ball original manga and Dragon Ball/Z/Kai anime adaptations.
- Dragon Ball Z TV Specials. (Bardock: The Father of Goku, The History of Trunks)
- Dragon Ball GT and the movie A Hero’s Legacy.
- Dragon Ball Super anime and its upcoming movie.

I have some issues with most of DB and DBZ movies, but I would include Battle of Gods and Ressurrection F, if they weren’t rebooted in the Dragon Ball Super anime.

Personal Canon, alright first comes my Manga canon, which is basically the stuff written by Toriyama I enjoy and I reread the series in this perspective as this is the "Toriyama-canon" that I follow for myself.

Personal Manga/Toriyama Canon

- Dragon Ball Minus
- Jaco: The Galactic Patrolman
- Dragon Ball Manga (Chapter 1-517)
- Dragon Ball: Yo Son Goku and Friends Return
- Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods
- Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F (Including the interview where Toriyama said how it was Goku who left to train first with Whis followed by Vegeta)
- Dragon Ball Super: Broly
- Dragon Ball Manga (Chapter 518 & 519)
- Neko Majin Z

The next one might be very confusing for people to look at since next is MY Personal one that I love to mess with and create for my personal enjoyment. It might be out there and incooperate stuff from all Dragon Ball Media. Also, the fact that I'm blending two shows together for this one with Original Z and Kai. I love both series and I think both have flaws and great moments, which is why I kinda fuse them together for my personal Anime listing.

Personal Canon

- Dragon Ball Zero (Pre-Freeza Destroying Planet Vegeta)
- Dragon Ball Minus
- Dragon Ball Kai: Ep 1. Prologue (showing Bardock's Death)
- Dragon Ball Zero ( Post- Planet Vegeta Destruction)
- Jaco: The Galactic Patrolman
- Dragon Ball Anime
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 1-39
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 40-43 (Goku escaping hospital filler/ No Fake Namek)
- Dragon Ball Kai: Episode 19-54
- Dragn Ball Z Special: History of Trunks
- Dragon Ball Z Episode 118- 124
- Dragon Ball Z Movie 5: Cooler's Revenge
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 125
- Dragon Ball Kai: Episode 59- 82
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 167-175
- Dragon Ball Kai: Episode 87- 90
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 182-184
- Dragon Ball Kai: Episode 93-97
- Dragon Ball Kai: Episode 98 (Till fast 3 minutes)
- Movie 9: Bojack Unbound
- Last 3 minutes of Dragon Ball Kai Ep 98 (With Goku and Kaio leaving snake way and montage of Afterlife Tournament)
- Dragon Ball Z Kai The Final Chapters: Episode 99-100
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 202-218
- Dragon Ball Z Kai The Final Chapters: Episode 113-121 (Using DBZKai for name now because of different episode count at this point)
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 230-243
- Dragon Ball Z Kai: Episode 133-135
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 248- 259
- Dragon Ball Z Kai: Episode 146- 152
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 269-272
- Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters: Episode 155- 165
- Dragon Ball: Yo Son Goku and Friends Return!

From this point onward, I have two different Personal Timelines I love to use for myself reguarding my canon and depending on my mood I choose these two routes to go...

Personal Canon V.1

- Toriko x One Piece x Dragon Ball Crossover special
- Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods
- Dragon Ball Super: Episode 15- 17
- Dragon Ball Super: Episode 28- 41
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse: Goku Black DLC (DBS Trunks and Xeno Trunks are two different Trunks')
- Dragon Ball Super: Episode 69- 76
- Dragon Ball Super: Universe Survial Arc
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Prison Planet Arc( Crossing over with V.2 Personal canon)
- Dragon Ball Super: Broly (Might be removed later depending on how good the film is)
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 289-291

Personal Canon V.2

- Dragon Ball Z Movie 13: Wrath of the Dragon
- Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse
- Dragon Ball Z: Episode 289-291
- Dragon Ball GT: Episode 1- 41
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes Manga: Dark Demon Realm- Dark Empire Saga
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes Prison Planet Arc (Crossing over with V.1 Personal canon)
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes Manga: Universe Mission- whenever it ends
- Dragon Ball Online: Freeza Force Invasion of Earth
- Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy
- Dragon Ball GT: Episode 64 (Last 5 Minutes, Instead of Goku being dead/Immortal, He's a time patroller just checking out his great grandchild and his elderly granddaughter with the ending kinda changing from GT's original intent to an ending that's more open ended.)



Okay that's where I'm ending it because I got nothing, sorry if it's lenghly but hey whatcha going to do. And If it's confusing sorry, my brain just works in this crazy way.

Everything. Its a piece of fiction and does not exist in the physical world, hence no physical matter is destroyed through inconsistencies and contradictions.

Analytic wrote:- The original manga (with the updated Kanzenban Cell arc dates and ending)
- Bardock the Father of Goku
- Episode of Bardock
- Son Goku and his friends Return

That's about it for me.
I was about to compliment you for ignoring Minus and Super, but you included EoB :(

Also you always seemed to be as a GT fan, surprised you didn't included on your list.
