is a 35-minute Dragon Ball animated short film that premiered at the Jump Super Anime Tour in September 2008. It is the first animated Dragon Ball feature in twelve years, following the tenth anniversary film The Path to Power. It has not been licensed for an English-language release.

Two years after the defeat of Majin Buu in the main Dragon Ball series, Mr. Satan finally finishes construction on his brand new hotel. Feeling guilty that the hotel is in honor of what the majority of Earth believes to be his defeat of Buu, he invites all of the Z-Fighters and their families to a banquet. Shortly after dinner, two Saiyan spaceships land just outside of town, and a mysterious Saiyan and his wife confront the Z-Fighters at the hotel. They are revealed to be Vegeta's younger brother, Tarble, who had been deemed too weak to fight in the past and was sent to a distant star before the destruction of Planet Vegeta, and his wife Gure. Tarble asks his brother for help in dealing with Abo and Cado, soldiers who are remnants of Frieza's army, who are causing havoc on his planet.

As Abo and Cado land, the Z-Fighters pick radishes from Goku and Chi Chi's garden to determine who will battle the duo. Trunks wins and is chosen to fight and the battle begins. However, as the battle favors Abo and Cado, Goten joins Trunks. Without going Super Saiyan, the children easily defeat the two soldiers, with a little help from Goten's brother Gohan. Everyone except for Goku, Vegeta and Piccolo, go back to the hotel. As the battle is almost over, Abo and Cado fuse into their larger, more powerful form, Aka.

Aka easily devastates Goten and Trunks, slamming them around and tossing them like ragdolls, and everyone comes back. Goten and Trunks fuse and become Gotenks, attacking with "Wolf Fang Fist", "Volleyball Fist" and one of his own moves: "Dynamite Rolling Thunder Punch", which appears to defeat Aka. However, while everyone is celebrating, Aka attacks the boys again with a super move: "Super Destructive Wave". Piccolo blocks the attack with a Special Beam Cannon. Infuriated, Aka destroys most of the hotel with Wahahanoha beams while Gotenks protects Tarble and Gure. Goku and Vegeta join the fight, but Goku tricks Vegeta into looking away while he defeats Aka with a final Kamehameha. With the battle over, Mr. Satan invites everyone back to what's left of his hotel, where their banquet is still waiting. Abo and Cado give up the fight, and join them in the feast. The special ends with Goku and Vegeta fighting over pork and sushi.
