Dragon Ball: Final Bout is a unlicensed port of the Sony Playstation game Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22, made for the Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo by an unknown developer. The name and several of the splash screens are taken from the next Sony Playstation game Dragon Ball: Final Bout,(which is a 3D fighting game) but the sprites are ripped from Ultimate Battle 22. Both the SNES and MD versions feature 8 playable characters. 

Like most dual platform releases, the Mega Drive version is widely available in both it's boxed original printing and several pirate reissues, while the SNES version was distributed exclusively in South America. The SNES version uses Street Fighter II music and is currently undumped.

Goku's sprite is recycled from this game and used again in Top Fighter 2000 for the Mega Drive.


  • The main menu song has one of the soundtracks from Aladdin II, which is sped up.


Other Port


The Title Screen (GBC)

Another unofficial Port of the game is the Game Boy Color. Like all of the SNES fighting games,The GBC port is not as smooth as all of other GBC fighting games, the curious thing of this game is the graphics quality. Although Final Bout has the common problem of almost all 8-bit generation of fighting games (sprites through other sprites and the total lack of impact), the game does not suffer much of this problem, In addition to the animations are extremely beautiful to the standard Game Boy Color. On the other hand, the game music, though not bad, are composed of BGMs taken from other games, such as The King of Fighters 95 and The King of Fighters: Heat of Battle for the Game Boy itself. Another curiosity is the bizarre name given to certain characters. Freeza is called Frizar, Vegeta is called Bezida and Cell is called Zeru! Final Bout has 10 original characters, namely: Goku, Gohan, Cell (Zeru), Freeza (Frizar), Tenshinhan (Tensin), Vegeta (Bezida) Trunks , Kid Goku, Buu and Piccolo, and Vegeta SSJ Goku and SSJ. Final Bout is an extremely rare game to be found and does not a have ROM published online.
