APBP 12: Dragon Ball Z by Shiki01 APBP 12: Dragon Ball Z by Shiki01
So this one took a bit. And I realized three things:

1) The writers of Dragon Ball Z (or the characters) equate immortality with invulnerability. Ah well.

2) Crazy Twilight is great fun. Hence, the superfluous addition to the last panel.

3) I couldn't remember how Nappa actually acted. Dragon Ball Z Abridged ( [link] ) had superseded all memory of the original.

EDIT: To answer "Who is Goku" - [link]

I have a basic idea of how Dragonball z with Ponies would play out, up until the Cell saga

Twilight Sparkle(Goku) travels to Canterlot to train under the Mighty Princess Celestia(Kami) after training she leave to compete in the summer sun tournament, where she meets other fighters: Rainbow Dash(Yamcha),Pinkie Pie(Krillin),Rarity(Chi Chi),AppleJack(Tien) and Fluttershy(Chiatzou). The Tournament is interrupted by Demon Queen Nightmare Moon(Demon King Piccolo). The Fighters then must gather the wish granting elements of harmony. After a long battle Twilight defeats Nightmare Moon, who reverts back to her identity as Princess Luna, and vows revenge.
Sunset Shimmer arrives on earth at the same time Twilight introduces her son Spike to her friends. When Shimmer arrives and reveals to Twilight that they are both part of a powerful race of Unicorns. Shimmer kidnaps Spike and Twilight and Luna team up to save him, in the resulting battle twilight is fatally wounded and Shimmer killed. Luna kidnaps Spike and begins training him. Twilight's friends arrive and she dies in Pinkie's arms. The others learn that two ponies are coming for the elements.Twilight's friends train with Shining Armor(Popo),who lays down the pecking order. In the everfree forest, Zecora summons Twilight's ghost and begins training her until her friends can use the elements to resurrect her. At night with Luna, Spike transforms into a large Dragon, Luna realizes this is caused by the moon, and reluctantly and sadly blows it up, causing Spike to change back to normal. The others bring Twilight back to life but she appears in the Everfree forest and has to head back to Ponyville. The Ponies arrived:Derpy(Abridged Nappa) and Trixie(Vegeta), Everyone except Pinkie and Spike are killed before Twilight arrives.Luna's death causes the elements and Celestia to vanish. She defeats Derpy and Fights Trixie, until Trixie reveals her power to turn into an Ursa Minor and defeats Twilight, fortunately Pinkie and Spike help defeat her, and she retreats.
Spike and Pinkie learn of another set of elements and set out to find them. They encounter Discord(Frieza) and his ponies but are rescued by Trixie who kills henchmen Snips and Snails(Zarbon and Dodoria) Discord calls the Gilda force for back up, consisting of: Garble(bulbo), Lightning Dust(burter)Iron Will(Recoome)Flim and Flam(Jeice) and Gilda(Captain Ginyu). Gilda retrieves the elements for Discord but finds he can't get them to work. Twilight arrives and helps defeat the Gilda force but is injured in the process. The others then use the other Elements to revive Luna and bring her near them. Meanwhile Discord finds Chrysallis and her prisoner, Cadance. Chrysallis forces Cadance to fight. When Discord realizes the elements have been used. Discord mortally wounds Cadance. Luna finds her and the two Alicorn princesses fuse together. Luna and the others fight Discord until Twilight recovers and fights him. Luna, and Pinkie are killed, in anger Twilight transforms into an Alicorn and after a long battle defeats Discord.
Discord returns and is swiftly defeated by a time traveller name Doctor Whooves who reveals that two android ponies will appear and kill them in three years. They begin training. When the time comes Big Mac,Vinyl Scratch and Octavia(androids 16,17 and 18) appear as does a mysterious being named Tirek is consuming magic and goes after the Androids. Celestia and Luna fuse to fight him but are defeated. Tirek absorbs the androids, achieving his perfect form. After training, Twilight believes Spike can defeat Tirek, Spike is skeptical until a dying Big Mac gives Spike a long speech about responsibility before he is killed, causing Spike to evolve and fight tirek. Tirek releases the androids, and tries to self destruct. Twilight sacrifices herself to teleport Tirek away but, this fails and the battle resumes. Tirek is finally killed when all the fighters fire their strongest attacks in a massive barrage that completely destroys him.

Wow...I dunno what to say to that. ^^;
It was very funny though!
I have to admit, MLP and DB are two series I never thought I would like. Of course, it's stupid to assume something like that before you've even seen them. =)

Nice comic strip, keep up the good work!

Darkton93 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011
Since you want to know, Canon Nappa is a brute, plain and simple. He's actually quite cold, and quick to anger. He has a sense of loyalty to his comrades (as evidenced by how he wanted to bring back Raditz and his concern for the Saibaman Vegeta killed), and an unending faith in Vegeta. In the end, his only purpose was to cause a few shock deaths and to show how powerful Goku is.

Also, is Snips Raditz?
lanternjoe Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
He's Nappa.
Darkton93 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
I meant to say Snails, then. I get the two confused sometimes.

Is Snails Raditz?
