* AdaptationDistillation: They managed to summarize the Saiyan Saga in the space of 12 episodes of approximately 10 minutes each. Then they [[UpToEleven one-upped themselves]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo5Rhn8zuPA compressed those 120-odd minutes into 130 seconds.]]

to:

* AdaptationDistillation: AdaptationalHeroism: Dr. Wheelo turns out to be this in the ''World's Strongest'' movie.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Freeza gets this. He's still a genocidal tyrant, but he shows much more care and concern for his higher-ranking minions than his canon counterpart ever did.
* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Guru in the original was AFatherToHisMen and was very TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth. Here, he's a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk who's arguably a worse monster than Freeza, [[spoiler:especially considering how he ordered his people to kill their Albino brethren in order to hide the fact he drank the water supply.]] In fact, in the Lord Slug special, he signs off his letter as being the Evil Half, despite Lord Slug clearly being the film's villain.
** Do we even want to go into how Popo's scarier than the original?
--->'''Popo:''' '''Hi.'''
** The BadFuture versions of Android 17 and 18 were already some of the darkest villains in the original anime, but here they go even further, rivaling ''Freeza'' in terms of horrifying evil.
** Played with in regards to Bardock. On the one hand, he's not any more villainous than what he was in the anime. On the other, TFS doesn't sugarcoat the fact that he was, in effect, a genocidal [[SpaceX space]] mercenary.

** Incidentally, [[DubNameChange Freezer is actually Frieza's name in the Italian and Spanish dubs.]] Most noticeably, they keeps it in the last movies, despite all the other changes (such as using the japanese name for techniques, and Piccolo for, well, Piccolo, who was called "Junior" in previous adaptations in the former's case).

** Freeza and Zarbon call Qui "[[DubNameChange Kiwi]]" a couple of times.

** In a similar vein, most of the footage shown of Super Saiyan Goku fighting Frieza once he powers up to 100% is Frieza beating the snot out of Goku. This makes his eventual 'You're boring and no longer a challenge' speech seem sort of weird, since he's only shown landing a few good hits and mostly getting pummelled.

*** It's because on the level of Frieza's army he's pretty much a Yamcha level. His introduction involves him still losing to a full nelson and getting killed by 2 people significantly weaker than him. Even in canon Vegeta points out that the Saibamen they can grow from seeds are roughly individually as powerful as Raditz himself to put things in perspective.

** When everyone is completely beaten down by Broly in ''BROLY'', they all comment that they rather face the villains in the other movies. Piccolo wanting to open up the Dead Zone so they can bring back Garlic Jr. Trunks rather prefer more androids in disbelief. Vegeta prefers being kicked in the dick a thousand more times than hear Broly scream out "KAKARROT" again. And Gohan rather take another shot at Turles, even though he's just an evil version of Goku.

Added DiffLines:

** Perfect Cell seems to genuinely like Goku and is generally pleasant to people who haven't pissed him off.

Added DiffLines:

** Vegeta kills Captain Ginyu after he switches bodies with a frog, unlike canon where he spared him in the interest of ''schadenfreude''. Thus Ginyu's absence when the rest of the Ginyu Force visit King Kai's planet has no explanation or is even addressed.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: It happens a few times early in the series, but that fades away as the comedy improves. Stops entirely after the first season.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Nine minutes eighteen seconds, nine minutes eighteen seconds.\\

* There is another example in episode 57, however. Goku is about to fight Cell, only to learn that Mister Satan won the last fighting tournament. He then let's Mister Satan go first because he thinks it's the fair thing to do. When Piccolo confronts Goku, Goku replies that Mister Satan is the champ so he'll definitely win. Piccolo turns toward the viewers:
--> '''Piccolo''' I can't tell if he's serious and that's ''very'' concerning.

*** This is even more so in ''Kai'' Abridged where [[spoiler Dodoria's]] only line is [[spoiler: I have a thick. Meaty. ''Vagina'']]. This results in Vegeta annihilating her, then visibly and audibly fighting off the urge to throw up.
