* CutShort: The initial Japanese airing ended after the Cell Games. Due in part to the Earthquake and Tsunami in Sendai, the episodes were delayed by a week. Since they didn't have broadcast space to add an episode, the final episode (98) was delayed until August 2011 in Japan. It's available on {{DVD}} and UsefulNotes/BluRay as a bonus episode.

* DigitalDestruction: Some fans have lambasted the efforts of Creator/QTec in regards to the footage. It's not entirely unfounded, as it's pretty obvious they're working for the cheap. This got worse during the series' version of the Buu saga, which was remastered by Toei themselves. In this case, the picture is permanently cropped to 16:9 and features a noticeable green tint compared to the Blu-ray releases of ''Z'' (which appear to use a similar remastering process).
** Also, if you look carefully during the opening sequence during ''The Final Chapters'', it looks like it was animated in 4:3, but then cropped or stretched to 16:9, due to some shots being weirdly framed, notably Babidi and Dabura's shot where Babidi's lower half cut off a bit and Majin Buu is weirdly framed as well when he appears in it. This could mean that either they were planning for the show to be in 4:3 from the start, or they animated it in that aspect ratio to save money, then cropped it, or at least certain shots.
** There's also a weird discrepancy with [=FUNimation=]'s releases for ''The Final Chapters'', where, depending on what you use to play the discs, the English dub audio is improperly mixed, causing the sound effects to become muffled. Sabat has been made aware of this problem and has had the audio engineers at [=FUNi=] fix the problem for the TV airings, but it's not known if they'll do replacement discs for the people that bought the sets already. Depending on your viewer, you may not notice, but it ''is'' there.

* GoodNewsBadNews: The good news is Frieza wants his fight with Goku to last a bit longer. The bad news is that Goku will spend his remaining time in excruciating pain.
** Good news! Toei commissioned the Buu Saga to be created for the series. Bad news? They didn't have Q Tec work on the series, which has resulted in the show not having as clean a remaster, a weird green tint, permanent cropping, and the Hell scenes being retained for some reason, even though they completely contradict not only prior continuity in ''Kai,'' since Goku never went there, but also later continuity with what's shown of Frieza's Hell in ''Resurrection F'' and ''Super.''

** However, after the Namek Saga, this subversion is very much downplayed, as less new material is inserted into the show, and InactionSequence is in full force again during the Majin Buu Saga. There is even a piece of music on the soundtrack which sounds like clocks ticking, and it is exclusively played during sequences where people stare at each other. Better yet, even later there is epic staring with orchestral chanting in the background.

Toei announced in 2012 that it would [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-11-06/dragon-ball-z-kai-japanese-cast-records-new-episodes produce the Buu Saga for overseas markets]]; these episodes starting airing in Japan on 6 April 2014. However, the final arc is going to make things difficult to compute out. While the international version (subtitled ''The Final Chapters'') is set to be 69 episodes (down from 92, for a 25% reduction in length), the Japanese broadcast version was cut down even further to 61 episodes.[[note]]The Japanese broadcast version was created after the version for international distribution was already complete and includes a Japanese track for the eventual DVD release, so technically two ''Japanese'' versions of this arc exist as well.[[/note]] It's unclear what the Japanese home release for the Buu arc will look like at this point.

The majority of the original Japanese and English voice actors reprised their roles; Creator/MasakoNozawa returned as Goku's Japanese voice, while Creator/SeanSchemmel returned for the English dub. Creator/ChristopherSabat also directed the English dub by Creator/FUNimation.

* VindicatedByHistory: Due to what's mentioned below for the vocal evolutions of the English dub cast, as well as later dubs of ''Battle of Gods'' and ''Resurrection F'' and ''Super'', this series really helped fans of the series who loathed the original Z dub and/or the FUNimation cast to like them a ''lot'' more than the original dub.

* PowerLevels: Same as before involving the scouters, but they seem to have adjusted some bits of dialogue and how the whole process works to highlight the need for strategy along with their "combat rating." It was implied that although Goku had a higher power level than Nappa, if he actually focused, he could give Goku a good fight. A particular lampshade comes from Vegeta in his CurbStompBattle with Jeice:
