* 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.

** When facing Rilld, Son Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan... Despites being the "Saikyou no Senshi" and having his fighting capacity maxed at all times.

* NoHarmRequirement: During the Shadow Dragon arc, Pan ends up getting [[TheAssimilator assimilated by Naturon Shenron]]. This puts Goku in a bind as he can't kill Naturon and retrieve the dragon ball without killing Pan in the process; the fact Naturon is then able to [[PowerCopying use Pan's power's against him]] only exacerbates the issue. Eventually Goku decides to pull a BatmanGambit and pretends to run out of power and look defeated. Naturon [[SmugSnake gloats greatly]] over beating Goku and decides, before finishing him off, to give him the chance to see Pan one more time. But this [[HoistByHisOwnPetard gives Goku the chance to yank Pan out]] and blow the monster away.

** 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 pointůstarted 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]].
