Sex & Nudity

  • One character is very uncomfortable being around girls. In one episode, he accidentally looks down a teen girl's shirt and recoils in fear.
  • Mild nudity. Some characters' (mostly male children) buttocks are seen from time to time. In one scene a girl's bare breasts are briefly visible (no nipples). One scene features a girl showering and the side of her breasts and her butt can be seen. However, these scenes are not explicit in any way.
  • One male child is briefly seen with full frontal nudity, genitalia and all. The scene is non-sexual though and innocent.
  • A few of the characters are perverted and try to hit on and grope women, and "sneak peeks". Again, though, this is not explicit.
  • A male character makes a wish for panties at one point and receives a pair.
  • Goku, a child, sometimes mentions his "balls" and wonders why Bulma (a grown woman) doesn't have any. In a later scene, he removes her underwear while she sleeps and looks at her naked crotch (her genitals aren't shown).

Violence & Gore

  • The final battle in the Piccolo Jr. Saga is much more violent and bloody than the rest of the series.
  • The first couple of sagas (story arcs) have mostly slapstick-like violence with a few occasions with minor blood.
  • A man is shot to death in episode 30. It's completely offscreen and the aftermath is neither shown nor alluded to, but it's still clear what happens.
  • Lots of fantasy action violence, often involving martial arts and energy-based attacks. The fights do become quite violent in later seasons. Characters on the show die, however, deaths are often undone through wishes made with the Dragon Balls. It may be a bit much for young children, but if your kids have seen PG-13 movies, they can take this.

Profanity

  • A middle finger is used in one episode
  • Very minimal. The occasional childish insults and name calling. Japanese subtitled version has slightly more profane language, but even this is fairly tame.
  • Words like "damn" and (occasionally) "a--" are used.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Many characters are social drinkers/smokers. Occasionally characters become drunk, however this is rare, and it is always done in a comical fashion. The activities are not condoned or glorified in any way.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Cave of Darkness sequence on episode 116 might be scary for young viewers.
  • Some of the violent/death scenes can be a bit emotional/intense.
