Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans (ドラゴンボール 超サイヤ人絶滅計画, Doragon Bōru Sūpā Saiya-jin Zetsumetsu Keikaku) is the 2010 remake-version of OVA Dragon Ball Z Side-Story: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans and the third overall Dragon Ball OVA. It was released as a bonus of the Bandai Namco Games video game Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.
Dr. Raichi may be the last of the Tsufruian people, a race that was completely wiped some time ago by the Saiyans. He now plans to take revenge on the remaining Saiyans, Son Gokū, Vegeta, Trunks, and Son Gohan. He creates a machine that will emit Destron, a gas that could destroy all life on Earth. The Saiyans, plus Piccolo, only have 72 hours to destroy these machines and find Dr. Raichi. When trying to destroy the final machine, Vegeta discovers that it is protected by an impenetrable energy barrier. Freeza, Coola, Tullece and Lord Slug appear and engage the heroes one on one. The heroes continue to lose against their foes. It is revealed that these ghost warriors are made of Destron gas and cannot be beaten unless the gas is neutralized. The barrier is destroyed by Bulma, who also came with the antidote for the Destron gas. She then manages to stop the gas. The heroes kill Freeza and the others.
The heroes track down Dr. Raichi on the Dark Planet and engage him, discovering that his ghost warriors are generated by a machine called Hatchiyack, a device powered by the Tuffles' hatred for the Saiyans. It is also revealed that Dr. Raichi is a ghost warrior himself, generated by Hatchiyack. When Vegeta vaporizes Raichi, preventing him from re-materializing, the hate of the last remaining Tuffle causes Hatchiyack to exceed its limit. Hatchiyack appears in a powerful android body, whose power is said to match or perhaps even exceed that of Broly, according to Gokū. Hatchiyack devastates the heroes until the Saiyans (after having transformed into their Super Saiyan states) and Piccolo combine their powers together into one massive wave of energy, ending the threat of the Dr. Raichi. At last Gokū, Vegeta, Gohan, Trunks and Piccolo return to Earth just as the Dark Planet explodes.

The background music for the feature was composed by newcomer Hiroshi Takaki. This follows suit with the original “Official Visual Guides” where the music was composed by Keiju Ishikawa, who had never composed background music for the series up until that point.
- Like its original version, the OVA is stated to set in the alternate timeline, during the ten days before the Cell Games, and after the events of Dragon Ball Z: Burn Up!! A Red-Hot, Raging, Super-Fierce Fight.
- For those that pre-ordered the Japanese release early enough, Bandai would include a free character design and conceptual art pamphlet with the video game while supplies lasted.
