Yeah. Actually, you can find lots of manga nowadays that have dragonball's influence and arcs in it. Such as eating habits, super saiyan power up, perverted senins/hermits and more. Some even used dragonball as the base before getting into their own plots. Other than DB, i think it would be doraemon and north fist.
I guess dragonball can be consider as the best manga in history. I can still remember that dragonbal used to be the most that me and my pals ever talked about when it comes to discussion about mangas.
Well, at least it's the one that got me into the path of manga collection.
