** Speaking of said murderous rage, following the fusions of both [=17s=] into Super 17, Android 18 stepped in during Super 17's battle with Goku just as he was about to kill Goku with his FinishingMove. While he tried to deal with 18 scolding him for not being his own man anymore and being controlled by evil doctors, Dr. Myuu, who's been shown communicating with Super 17 telepathically via some sort of blueprint messaging at one point…started verbally telling him off and calling him a coward for letting ''her'' manipulate and control him. The doc got himself killed and the Machine Mutant threat would end with Super 17.

** Super 17 had Android 18 in his control for Dr. Myuu. But he just had to kill Krillin, which broke his hold on her and sent her into a murderous rage of her own.

** Super {{Brainwashed}} Android 17 had Android 18 in his control for Dr. Myuu. Krillin tried (and almost succeeded) talking him out of it, but [[EvilKnockoff Hell Fighter 17]] was the conduit of the brainwash and thus had direct influence in 17's head. But when Hell 17 used that influence to take back control, he just had failed to kill contain Android 17's anger, resulting in him killing Krillin, which broke his hold on her 18 and sent her into a murderous rage of her own.

* NoahsStoryArc: In the first season, Bulma just happens to have one of these tucked away beneath the Capsule Corporation in order to evacuate everyone to the new planet created by Baby with the Blackstar balls.
** Considering the number of times Earth has been nearly (or actually) destroyed in this franchise, that might be more {{Justified|Trope}} than it sounds.

* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Subverted in the end during the final battle with Omega. [=SS4=] Gogeta completely had him outmatched in every way, but when the fusion [[DiabolusExMachina wore off sooner than they expected]] (likely the [=SS4=] form was straining the fusion), Omega would not and did not allow them to fuse again, [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy interrupting them whenever they tried]].

'''''Dragon Ball GT''''' is the {{anime}}-only continuation of the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' series. Set five years after the epilogue of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Goku has finally finished training Uub and is ready to return home until an unexpected reunion with [[GoldfishPoopGang Emperor Pilaf and his minions]] who have managed to obtain the Black Star Dragon Balls, even more powerful than the originals. However, since [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption failure has always been the only option]] for Pilaf's attempts to TakeOverTheWorld, he messes up the wish [[FountainOfYouth accidentally turning Goku into a child]].

** The first character to get roughed up by Android 17 is Trunks, fittingly enough, since Future Trunks spent much of his life the same way...

* AlternateContinuity: Starting to become this after the release of two canon movies written by Toriyama himself, ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]]'' and ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection ‘F’]]''. The two movies introduce quite a lot that forces ''GT'' into this trope, like Pilaf's gang being the ones wished into kids instead of Goku, Super Saiyan Gods, {{Physical God}}s [[GodOfEvil of Destruction]], revealing that Goku isn't even close to the strongest being in the universe, and that the likes of Vegeta and even Frieza are capable of being more than his equal. The RubberBandHistory storyline of the video game ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' outright acknowledges this, with Time Patrol Trunks acknowledging the events of ''GT'' as an AlternateTimeline in its DLC story chapters.

** Android 17 is brainwashed in this way as an essential part of the Super 17 arc. At one point he attempts to do this to 18 as well (and nearly succeds), and ultimate victory comes from our heroes reaching through his brainwashing for the briefest of seconds.

** [[spoiler:Pilaf shows up, but ceases to be important after the first episode. His wish causes the dragon balls to be flung all over the universe, where the "apparent" real BigBad Dr. Myu and his minions start collecting them. However, he's eventually killed by Baby, who takes on the role (until he is in-turn killed by Goku). While in Hell, Myu joins forces with Gero and creates Super Android 17 seeming to reclaim his status as main villain... but then 17 kills both him and Gero. 17 kills a lot of people before being taken down. This forces Goku and company to use the Dragon Balls to try and undo the damage. Unfortunately, the overused balls summon the One-Star Dragon ("Syn Shenron") and the shadow dragons. In other words, with the exception of One-Star, every one of these villains was a DiscOneFinalBoss.]]

* GainaxEnding: Clear proof that ''[[https://www.alluc.to/stream/Dragon+Ball+GT GT]]'' was a very rushed concept. What happens to Goku in the last 2 episodes is inexplicable and [[ShrugOfGod there's no official explanation]]. He's finished, then he's dead and he talks to the world, then suddenly he's alive again, then in base form he cannot be killed by Omega (there's not even a halo to give us any idea), then after the bomb's thrown, he's apparently dead again and brought back to life, then he leaves. Vegeta knows something's up, then suddenly we see Goku's clothes left on the ground (that shot is chronologically out of sequence and is shown at the end of the next couple of events). DBZ's version of NoBodyLeftBehind doesn't leave clothes behind. But then he's off to visit Roshi and Piccolo still fully clothed, and both also know something's changed about him, but "Are you...?" is not very helpful. When they take their eyes off him for a second, there's suddenly no one there, which is almost creepy. Then for some reason the Dragon Balls merge into Goku, then he disappears. Where does he go? What happened to him? He doesn't return for 100 years, and, if you leave aside what you saw in A Hero's legacy, it's not clear if he's alive or dead (and, if he's alive, why he's only aged about 30-40 years instead of the full 100). To top it all off, he doesn't even seem bothered by the fact that almost everyone he knew is dead. It doesn't add up to his fate in ''A Hero's Legacy''. Goku ''is'' clearly no more and it makes it appear like the whole cast just passed on when their time was up. However, ''A Hero's legacy'' was made earlier just after the Baby Saga and they intended Goku to be clearly dead by this point and be the SpiritAdvisor to Goku Jr. At that time, no one had any idea how ''GT ''was going to end or just how they were going to get there. Seriously.

* LittleStowaway: Pan. The reason they don't take her home is because she takes the device that would let them go home and easily keeps it a away from the out of practice, not to mention larger, Trunks. Goku refuses to interfere with it, and she finally drops it down her shirt (which, when you think about it, shouldn't work), causing Trunks to give up.

* TheManInFrontOfTheMan: Baby was first introduced as the treasured creation of Dr. Myuu. Then it turns out that it's the other way around; Myuu and his creations were just a front to gather the newly-scattered black star dragon balls and revive the destroyed Planet Vegeta for Baby, revealed to be the king of the Tuffles — the extinct rival race of the Saiyan main characters — to reign supreme.

** Baby does this, having used the Black Star Dragon Balls to bring back Planet Plant. Because of this, and the year long (well, just about) reign afterwards, by the time he's dead, Earth has two weeks left. Luckily, there's still a planet just sitting there, as well as a giant spacecraft and Super Saiyan 4 Goku, who can use instant transmission. So, had Baby used that wish for something like immortality or even just Planet Plant in it's old place, Earth would have been screwed.

* PityTheKidnapper: An early episode saw Goku, transformed into a child by the black star dragonballs, get kidnapped by a gang of thugs. (Well, technically he goes along with them willingly, not realizing that they are kidnappers.) He forces them to spend all of their money on food for him, undermines their attempts to negotiate a ransom from his friends, and in the end simply flies away when it's time to go home.

* ShootTheHostage: in an attempt to stop Super 17's rampage, Pan and Giru manage to block Dr. Gero and threaten him with death. Sadly, because Dr. Myuu secretly modified Hell Fighter 17 in order to make him respond to his and his only orders, Super 17 doesn't recognize Gero as his boss anymore. Which leads to Gero's nth death at the hand of one of his creations.
