These cool Dragon Ball Z paper model characters in Chibi style were created by French designer Paper Juke. According to Wikipedia, Chibi is a Japanese slang word meaning "short person" or "small child". The word has gained currency among fans of manga and anime. Its meaning is of someone or some animal that is small. It can be translated as "little", but is not used the same way as chiisana(tiny, small, little in Japanese) but rather cute. A prototypical example of the former usage in the original Japanese which brought the term to the attention of Western fans is Chibiusa, a pet name for the diminutive daughter of Sailor Moon formed from Chibi Usagi ("Little Rabbit"). In English-speaking anime and manga fandom (otaku), the term chibi has mostly been conflated with the "super deformed" style of drawing characters with oversized heads or it can be used to describe child versions of characters. Chibi style is usually used in depicting scenes which are cute and/or humorous, and it is extremely rare for it to be used for an entire anime series. It is quite popular in manga, however.

Estes modelos de papel de personagens do Dragon Ball Z em estilo Chibi foram criados pelo designer francês Paper Juke. De acordo com a Wikipedia, Chibi, literalmente baixinho em japonês, é um termo utilizado no contexto de anime ou mangá para descrever um traço de desenho de personagem bastante estilizado, com cabeças no mesmo tamanho dos corpos, geralmente para obter um efeito cômico ou mais sentimental. Um traço marcante dos chibi é que quase sempre não é desenhado o nariz, o traço da boca nem sempre é finalizado e os traços em geral são bem simplificados. Outras vezes, em vez de um corpo humano, o desenhista coloca a cabeça do personagem em um corpo ou com características de gato, cachorro ou algum outro bicho.
