Other Adaptions

I feel the "other adaptions" section should be merged into the Dragon Ball section, under a "live-action films" category, as they are both based solely on Dragon Ball, and not on Dragon Ball Z or Dragon Ball Grand Tour. -- 09:41, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Stage Plays

A user recently pointed out on my talk page that stage plays are not actually films, which is true. Should they be removed from this template? The user also had questions about TV specials, specifically crossover episodes, which is another good point. A 2-part One Piece/Toriko episode is probably not a Dragon Ball film. Thoughts? -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 01:45, June 5, 2015 (UTC)

Dunno, if we want to be really specific, then we only have the 19 DB and DBZ movies + the live-actions. TV specials are not actually films, but special episodes that are part of the anime series. I don't know where the OVAs stand, but they are not actual films either. The Toriko/One Piece/DBZ crossover is actually part of the Toriko anime, iirc it's episode 50 of Toriko.

Let's focus on stage shows and anime episodes of other shows for now. The OVAs and specials are more difficult to separate, but I think we can have that conversation after we close on this. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 03:26, June 5, 2015 (UTC)
Dbzejo (talk) 11:06, June 6, 2015 (UTC) There should be like just 3 categories : theatrical (and live action), specials and ovas. Plan to eradicate the saiyans is ova.

Do you mean three templates? -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 17:01, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Dbzejo (talk) 16:59, June 9, 2015 (UTC) No,i mean three categories in template, for example, dbz has 6, it should have 3 ...

Is this way fine? It's just an example for now. What about the public service videos (Goku fireman, traffic safety)? Should we keep them or remove? Yakon RenderSandubadearPui Pui Render 17:10, June 9, 2015 (UTC)
ok, let's w8 for 10x. Yakon RenderSandubadearPui Pui Render 19:45, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

Dbzejo, categories and templates are two different, specific things on a Wiki. This page is for a template. This link is to a category. Thinking about it, it's pretty convenient to have these things grouped together, even though they are not all films. Another option is we can rename the header to "Films, Special, and Stage Shows". -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 00:45, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

Dbzejo (talk) 12:09, June 10, 2015 (UTC) yeah, i know, this was stupid, things are good the way they are. more things it has, the better

By categories in the template, he meant the sections or whatever that say "films", "TV Specials", "OVAs", etc. Yakon RenderSandubadearPui Pui Render 23:18, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

I'm going to rename the header to more accurately reflect the contents of the template. If there are objections (doesn't seem like a controversial move), we'll reconvene. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 06:32, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

10X renamed the header to "films, specials, and stage plays" so the stage plays can stay there. Also, Goku's world is not an OVA, it's a game with anime footage. Yakon RenderSandubadearPui Pui Render 17:45, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessary to say OVA if we already say special. They're pretty darn similar. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 23:44, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

Z/Super Films

The Super films have the words DBZ in the title, but it cannot be argued they are "Dragon Ball Z Adaptions", which is what this template says. They don't adapt the events of Z. They are alternate versions of Super. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 01:45, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
