Wrath of the Dragon (1995), the 13th–and final–Dragon Ball Z movie, is also known as Dragon-Fist Explosion!! If Goku Can’t Do it, Who Can? Teen-aged Gohan rescues an old man threatening to commit suicide, who turns out to be Hoy, the last of an evil race of aliens. He tricks the gang into finding the Dragon Balls and asking Shenron the Dragon to open a sealed music box–releasing both the hero Tapion and the monster Hirudegarn. Trunks is dazzled by Tapion, and works to befriend the elfin alien. Hoy plans to use Hirudegarn to destroy Earth, but Tapion and his magical ocarina hold the monster at bay. When the megalomaniac Hoy overcomes Tapion, it’s Goku, Gohan, and the rest of the Super-Saiyans to the rescue! Although it’s barely an hour long, Wrath of the Dragon delivers some snazzy special effects and plenty of the rock ’em sock ’em action Dragon Ball fans expect. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 8 and older: violence)–Charles Solomon
Critically, Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon [DVD] is the conclusion to the Dragon Ball Z continuity and the 16th Dragon Ball movie. In fact, the 52-minute movie concludes the Majin Buu saga and peace has returned to the Earth.
Together, director Mitsuo Hashimoto and writer Takao Koyama collaborate on the storyline. Really, the visual effects are state-of-the-art in the franchise with a modern look. And the story of redemption and friendship is excellent.
Indeed, share this comic on the occasions of Comic-Con and festivals. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Goku! And Tapion!

One positive review said: “This is the last movie of the Dragon Ball Z series. As every true Dragon Ball Z fan knows the timeline of the TV series and the timeline of the movies do not go hand in hand. The movie “Wrath of the Dragon” serves the purpose of not only closure of the series, but also answers a peculiar question of one of the character, we see how does Trunks obtains the sword that he will later use to kill Freeza and King Cold.
As everything Dragon Ball Z is entretaining and exiting. Great fights, and great plot. Highly recomended.”
One negative review commented on the short length of the film: “Wasn’t a fan of this one. It’s less than an hour long, but it felt like it lasted forever. Only good parts were of present Trunks and Tapion. After that it was painful.”
Overall, this film was good.
- Conclusion of Dragon Ball Z.
