The term databook refers to a series of supplementary books that act to fill in the gaps left by the anime and the movies. Occasionally, the databooks will reference manga material.


The Daizenshū (大全集; Literally meaning "Great Complete Collections") are the first and largest collection of databooks. Though Akira Toriyama is credited as the author, he himself has admitted that Shueisha is responsible for the content. In addition to the main seven (listed below), Shueisha also released two Daizenshū covering the various rules of the card games and a final supplementary databook covering various vague portions of the anime.
