* AgeLift: A minor example with Gohan. Likely due to the heavy AdaptionationDistillation detailed above, Gohan is only nine by the time of the Cell Games, as opposed to eleven in the original run, and as of the Buu Saga is sixteen rather than eighteen.

** During Vegeta's rematch against Zarbon, he reveals that Saiyans grow stronger after recovering from near-death. Krillin hears this, and realises that was how Goku managed to get so much stronger after he was beaten. But later on, while taking Gohan to see the Grand Elder, Krillin remarks that he ''doesn't know'' how Vegeta had gotten stronger than he was on Earth.
*** This is kind of justified as Vegeta was beaten again before Krillin talked to Guru, so Vegeta was that much stronger than Krillin remembered.

* {{Retcon}}: At the end of the Cell Saga, [[spoiler: King Kai, Bubbles, and Gregory were revived along with everyone else wished back by the Dragon Balls in the ''Kai'' series finale. This is contrary to both the original anime where the wish only covered ''just'' the people on Earth and the manga where King Kai declined revival largely so that he could guide Goku around in Other World]].
** As of episode 68 of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', this retcon didn't stick, [[spoiler: with King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory are still dead, and the plot was about bringing them back. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Goku failed to do so.]]]]

** The movie "recapping" Mr. Satan vs Cell aired at the tournament in the Buu Saga had [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS-HiOzcjJg a version]] where Creator/TeamFourStar voiced the characters and spouted off a bunch of memes from the original ''Z'' dub. It wasn't present in the TV broadcast version, and rumor has it that that's because [[ExecutiveMeddling Toei wasn't happy when they found out.]]

** For whatever reason, when Toei recut the Buu Saga footage, they both cropped the frames, as was done with the first half, but didn't bother saving 4:3 versions of the episodes, which will cause some weirdness when watching the entire show in the future, and added a green tint to the footage, which is often a point of contention amongst fans, as it sort of ruins the viewing experience for some.

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. (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.) It's unclear what the Japanese home release for the Buu arc will look like at this point.

Toei Animation recycled animation from ''Dragon Ball Z'' itself, but it also updated the coloring and converted the recut footage to HD. ''Kai'' turns down the amount (and frequency) of [[InactionSequence talk breaks]] and features next-to-no {{filler}} or {{padding}} (except for that which Toei couldn't remove from the ''Dragon Ball Z'' animation). The end result of these changes? A sleeker, faster, more action-packed show than the original series. The original ''Dragon Ball Z'' has 194 episodes from its beginning through the end of the Cell Arc; ''Kai'' has only 98 episodes for that same timeframe. (This gives us a ratio of roughly one''Kai'' episode for every two of ''Dragon Ball Z''.)

The English dub of ''Kai'' comes considerably closer to the Japanese version of the show than the ''Z'' dub since it lacks the character rewrites, replacement scores ([[HomeVersionSoundtrackReplacement though the entire Japanese score ended up replaced around the world with recycled music tracks from DBZ when the composer was found to have infringed upon other artists' work]]), or major dialogue changes (though a few [[NeverSayDie dialogue alterations]] exist in the Creator/TheCW4Kids[=/=]Creator/{{Toonzai}}[=/=]Creator/{{Vortexx}} broadcast of ''Kai'') for which the ''Z'' dub became (in)famous. The show started airing on Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim in Fall of 2014, and later started airing reruns on [adult swim] proper in February 2015. The Buu Saga is debuted on Toonami in January 2017, running alongside the Funimation dub of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
