Fortnite has announced a special collaboration event with the Dragon Ball anime franchise for its in-game universe and gameplay. It will feature characters Son Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and Beerus for special quests and events, who are also all available to be purchased as skins in the Item Shop. 

The online video game from Epic Games previously featured characters from Naruto Shippuden this past June 2022.  

Here is a full list of the events and collaborations players can expect to see in Fortnite. 


A new “Power Unleashed!” event page has been created, allowing players to track their Power Level progress and participate in seven sets of Dragon Ball Battle Royale quests. They have been designed to test players’ strength, agility, and focus. With each completed quest, players will earn a Dragon Ball that raises their Power Level and unlock special rewards such as Dragon Radar Back Bling, Emotes, Sprays, and Battle Pass levels.

The page will run for a limited time, with quests and rewards available until August 30, 2022 at 4:00 AM EST. Once players have completed their quests and collected all seven Dragon Balls, they’ll be given a special Shenron Glider.

Starting on August 19, 2022, Fortnite players will also be able to explore iconic locations from the Dragon Ball franchise and locate the Dragon Balls in the Adventure Island event. The places players can visit will include Kami’s Palace, Goku’s House, and the Room of Spirit & Time. They will also be able to test their power in an open player-vs-player battle arena called the “Tenkaichi Budokai.”

Another special feature takes place within Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode, where Bounty Boards have been temporarily replaced with Versus Boards for the Dragon Ball event. For Versus Boards, if two players interact, they’ll be revealed on each other’s maps and given five minutes to find and defeat each other to claim victory.

For the Battle Royale itself, players will also be able to fight with the powers of Goku with his Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud items at their disposal. In each match, players will be able to pick up these items in-game from sky deliveries from the Capsule Corp. More of these capsules will appear as the event goes on. 


Meanwhile, from August 16 to September 17, Fortnite players can relax and board a cruise ship streaming episodes of the Dragon Ball Super anime series. Episodes nine, 10, 11, 13, 81, and 98 will be streamed for a limited time on Fortnite’s Discover section.

Dragon Ball fans will also be able to interact with Bulma, who is located at the Kame House off the coast of the mainland Island. If players want to give away some of their Bars, they’ll be able to chat with the wandering Bulma, who will provide some very powerful items.

Starting August 18, 2022 in all regions, players can also participate in the Tournament of Power Battle Royale Duos game to earn awesome prizes. The top 50% of players on the main leaderboard will be given an Angry Vegeta Emoticon, while players who earned eight points will earn Goku’s Kanji Banner icon. For players who earned three points from Eliminations with a Kamehameha item, they’ll be given a Beerus Eating Spray.
