Other Dragon Ball Stories[]

Dragon Ball Heroes[]

In the past, Chronoa and Mechikabura competed as Supreme Kai of Time candidates with both given a Tokitoki Bird egg to hatch and raise. Chronoa raised her with help of her assistant Demigra who would eventually become an underling of Mechikabura. Mechikabura attempted to speed up his Tokitoki's growth using dark magic which caused a sort of problems that eventually forced him to create a fake called Dokidoki to pass off as the real thing but failed. Chronoa managed to successfully hatch her Tokitoki but Demigra secretly took the bird to perform experiments on which caused Tokitoki to produce a time distortion that alerted Chronoa to Demigra's treachery. Demigra confronted Chronoa with his cohorts Putine and Gravy, but they are defeated by Chronoa who recovers Tokitoki and on her own raises him into an adult causing her to be given the position of Supreme Kai of Time. Mechikabura, Demgira, Putine, and Gravy are banished to a space beyond time that eventually became the Demon Realm where Mechikabura established the Dark Empire and became the Dark King. Demigra however became a Demon God and attacked the Time Nest to steal Tokitoki for himself in a bid to usurp Chronoa as Supreme Kai of Time but was defeated and sealed inside the Crack of Time. After Demigra's sealing, Chronoa continued to care for Tokitoki and the Time Eggs he laid as part of her duties.

A Dragon Egg hatches in Kajika

In Kajika, Dragon Eggs are extremely rare. The dragons of Ronron Island were thought to be extinct when a great storm killed the last two adults, but later, one egg was found and kept in the island's research institute. It was soon stolen by the gang leader and billionaire Gibachi because, according to legend, if one drinks the blood of a young dragon, they will gain tremendous power. This is because baby dragons have dragomin in their blood, which allows them to mature extremely fast. A girl named Haya retrieves the egg from Gibachi and goes on a quest to return it to the island. The main protagonist Kajika meets the girl and saves her from Gibachi's men. Haya then asks Kajika to help her on her quest. When the egg hatches, Gibachi and his men wound the young dragon, and Gibachi drinks its blood, which turns him into a powerful dragon-man.

In Nekomajin, a demon named Jajan is sealed inside an egg by Neko Majin Mix and kept near Neko Majin's house.
