** During the Vegeta saga on the Nicktoons airing, Krillin uses the Destructo Disc attack, but calls out the attack name by the original Japanese name, Kienzan. Krillin calls it "Destructo Disc" in later uses in the Nicktoons airings.
*** For the home media release of the series, and later dubs of movies and ''Super,'' both will retain their English dub names rather than their original Japanese names after their first uses in the dub of this series.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: The first five minutes of the first episode reveals that [[spoiler:Goku is an alien, and that Frieza destroyed the planet Vegeta]]. Both of these are plot twists in the original series, and treated as such in ''Kai'' itself when they come up again.

** To a lesser degree, the redrawn shots in the original Kai series are plainly digital, having far more vibrant colours than the original footage whilst also lacking the grain, frame drift and quality of background and line art compared to the original footage they're spliced into. For ''The Final Chapters'', this only applies to the recap of the original Kai arcs, as TFC opted to not use redrawn shots.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: In ''The Final Chapters'', when Goku meets Videl for the first time he says "Well, aren't you going to introduce us to your friend, Gohan? Your friend is a girl, isn't she?", calling back to the original arc of ''Anime/DragonBall'' where Goku couldn't tell girls from boys.

* SameLanguageDub: Reportedly, by actors who were a part of it, the Ocean Group recorded their own English dub like they did with ''Z''. Whether that accounts for the Buu Saga as well, or if it'll see the light of day on a Canadian TV station is yet to be seen.

* 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.
