Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension (ドラゴン ボール ゼット ハイパー ディメンション, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Haipā Dimenshon) is a fighting game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released in Europe on January 1, 1996 and in Japan on March 29, 1996 and developed by Tose Software and published by Bandai.


It begins late during the Frieza Saga and ends at the conclusion of the Kid Buu Saga. The only prominent difference is that select characters losing certain battles does not impede on the progression of the plot. Other characters deaths, usually those of Son Goku or Son Gohan, require the use of a credit, appropriately a Senzu, to continue playing. Also, the Story mode of Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension is not like other fighting games in the genre, such as Street Fighter, Tekken, or Mortal Kombat, where the plot focuses on the character selected by the player. Scenarios during the game start with the focus on one character and generally end with the focus of another. The Story mode is also quite inaccurate to the true story, mostly due to the lack of characters during various points in the story. Examples include Piccolo fighting against Freeza in his Final Form and Goku being the one to defeat Cell as a Super Saiyan 2.



The amount of life for characters is measured by a number system from 1 to 999, which can be charged at any time during the match. When the life reaches a level below 80, the characters are able to perform "desperate moves", which cause significantly higher amounts of damage. The characters fight on a multi-tier stage, which allows opponents to hit each other to other stages.

In addition to the Story mode, the game features Versus, Tournament and Practice modes. Versus mode allows a player to fight a computer-controlled character or for two players to fight each other. The Tournament mode allows up to eight players to compete against each other, or computer-controlled characters, similar to the previous Butōden video game series. Practice mode allows a player to fight a player-controlled character, but no damage is dealt. This mode is useful for mastering combos or experimenting with the fundamental controls of the game.

Used to listen to background music and sound effects. Although the Story mode is not included in the French version of the game, the BGM tracks related to it can still be heard here.
