[[DragonBallAbridged/TropesAToM Tropes A To M]] | '''Tropes N To Z''' | [[YMMV/DragonBallAbridged YMMV]]

----
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:N]]
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Happens to Gohan while fighting Recoome. Gohan starts by giving Recoome a bit of a verbal beatdown as the music starts to swell. Then he makes a desperate charge and... gets his neck snapped with one kick.
** [[spoiler:Mr. Popo kills Garlic Jr. before he can even do anything]].
* NervousWreck: This happens to Krillin. He cannot shut up when he's scared.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when Yamcha freaks out in episode 32:
-->'''Krillin''': Y'know, if he were't doing it... I would.
* NestedMouths: Third-form Freeza whips out one of these as a reference to ''Franchise/{{Alien}}''.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Played with with Freeza, who keeps a tally of heroic speeches:
-->'''Namekian Warrior:''' We're here to stop this senseless slaughter of our people. \\
'''Freeza:''' 92 \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' This has gone on for too long. And now, you're going to pay. \\
'''Freeza:''' 355 \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' We are... we... what are you-- \\
'''Freeza:''' No, go on. Continue. Don't mind me. \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' And... we are the ones who will stop you. \\
'''Freeza:''' Ooh, wow. 419.\\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' Oh yeah? Well... we're going to... f**k your face!\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh my. ''Twelve''.
** A short while later:
--->'''Namekian Elder:''' That... that wasn't part of the deal!\\
'''Freeza:''' Aaaand 500! Dodoria, show 'em what they've won!
** Though Goku did find one he didn't hear: "Imma deck you in the schnoz!"
*** And when Goku becomes a Super Saiyan he stumps Freeza once more: "I'm going to break you..." crushes Freeza's hand "...like a Kit-Kat bar!"
** Used ''almost'' verbatim in this exchange, after Trunks asks Freeza why he has "spare parts" coming out of him:
--> '''Freeza:''' Impudent little... These are not spare parts! What you are looking at is the ultimate culmination of science and nature!
--> '''Trunks:''' [[SarcasmMode Oh, wow! I've... never seen that before.]]
* NeverSayDie: Spoofed.
-->'''Reporter:''' Oh my God! [[ShoutOut They blew up]] [[CutAndPasteTranslation the cargo robot]]... And the cargo was ''people!''
* NeverSayThatAgain:
-->'''Krillin and Piccolo:''' ''[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kage Bunshin no Jutsu]]''! ''[Both make three copies of themselves]''\\
'''Nappa:''' Vegeta! I can't... ''[smiles]'' [[{{Catchphrase}} believe it]].\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''[offscreen, in disgust]'' ''Uuuuuugggh.''
* NeverTrustATrailer: You see all that cool stuff in the Episode 31 intro? [[spoiler:[[AbortedArc You're not getting any of it thanks to Mr. Popo]]]].
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Parodied. Vegeta reveals to Dodoria that after his trip to Earth, he can now sense energy sources and doesn't need a scouter. When Dodoria asks him how he learned how to do that, Vegeta is just as clueless.
** And again in Episode 21 when Goku reads Krillin's mind. His explanation [[spoiler: [[CallBack muffin button]]]] makes as much sense as the canonical explanation [[spoiler: just something that happens while he's training at high gravity.]]
* NoDeadBodyPoops: As Bardock learns upon having the corpses of his friends piled atop him, they do.
-->'''Bardock:''' [[FamilyGuy It's in my Dodoria wounds!]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Zarbon on Vegeta after his transformation.
* NoIndoorVoice: Vegeta spends about 80% of his screentime screaming at the top of his lungs. Lanipator lampshades it in one blooper where after recording one such outburst, he drops character to give his larynx a break and asks why he had to be cast as the loudest, raspiest voiced character in the whole show.
** The entire Kanassan race seem to be like this.
--->"'''I CAN SEE THE FUTUUURE!!!'''"
* NonSequiturThud: Occasionally happens to characters who've had thier asses handed to them.
--> '''Krillin:''' (After been kicked by Recoome, in a high pitch) Hello Gohan, have you done your homework? Cause if you don't Chi-chi will '''kick''' my ass!
** Goku delivers one after being repeatedly dunked underwater while fighting Freeza.
--->'''Goku:''' Grandpa, I don't want any more baths today. I'm clean now.
** And Freeza [[spoiler: after being [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisected by his own attack]]]]
--->'''Freeza:''' Daddy, I don't want to be on Namek anymore.
* NoodleIncident: The jockstrap incident.
** When Vegeta is figuring where Ginyu hid the Namekian Dragonballs:
--->'''Vegeta:''' If it's anything like that jockstrap incident, Ginyu probably buried them somewhere around here.
** Freeza mentions it in episode twenty-seven.
--->'''Freeza:''' (thinking) This has been one giant mess. It's just like that jockstrap incident, only now I don't have Ginyu around to dig the holes.
** Mentioned again in episode 32 by King Cold, when he's trying to decide where to land their spaceship.
---> '''Freeza:''' Daddy, we can park anywhere we want.
---> '''King Cold:''' Now son, if this is anything like that jock strap incident, we don't want to get boxed in!
* NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat: Played with in ''Revenge of Cooler'' after Goku took a blast, fell in the river and off a waterfall.
-->'''Cooler:''' So. Who thinks he's dead?
-->'''Sauza:''' Dead.
-->'''[[TheUnintelligible Neiz]]:''' Krii!
-->'''Doore:''' That boy's dead as mutton.
-->'''Cooler:''' [[AvertedTrope Too bad, I sign your paychecks.]] [[GenreSavvy Search the forest.]]
-->'''Sauza:''' [[GratuitousFrench Qu'est-ce que]] [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]].
* NoPartyLikeADonnerParty: How Dende seems to hint at how the Eldest Namek helped his entire race through a great drought that struck Namek...
* NoSell:
** "[[MemeticMutation The only thing Recoome sells]] ''[[JohnCena is merchandise]]!''" (Including a Recoome vibrator, apparently.)
** Freeza pulls this on Goku a few times.
---> '''Freeza:''' No, seriously, Kai-oh-what?\\
'''Goku:''' Kai-[[OhCrap oh-crap]].\\
'''Freeza:''' Thought so.
** He also No Sells a BoltOfDivineRetribution. And mocks God for the lack of effort.
** [[spoiler: And Super Saiyan Goku turns the tables on Freeza.]]
** In ''Revenge of Cooler'', Sauza punches Goku in the face... and much to Sauza's complete bewilderment, Goku ''completely ignores him'' while he continues chatting with Cooler, despite Sauza's fist against the side of his face. Goku does it to Cooler, too, after turning into a Super Saiyan.
* NoSympathy: What Gohan actually blames Goku for isn't his fault: abandoning Gohan with Piccolo for a year (Piccolo kidnapped him after Goku died trying to rescue him), and sending him to space (Gohan himself insisted on going, Goku himself was unable to do so due to his injures, and Goku was unable even to give his opinion on Gohan's choice due to being [[ItMakesSenseInContext sedated with Clorox after screaming in terror at seeing Mr Popo]]).
* NotCompletelyUseless: See CallingYourAttacks above.
* NotSoDifferent: Both Bardock and Chilled can't stand the [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans']] singing, and use the exact same words to say so.
* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Said word-for-word by Zarbon after [[MistakenForGay insinuating that Vegeta is gay]].
* NotWearingPants: "You'll have to speak up; I'm not wearing pants." Apparently Master Roshi's hearing is directly tied to his level of dress.
** This may be a ShoutOut to an old episode of ''TheSimpsons'', in which Homer gets out of the shower, answers the phone, and tells the person on the other end "You'll have to speak up; I'm wearing a towel."
* [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard The]] [[InteractiveNarrator Narrator]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Is A Cheating Bastard]]
--> '''Narrator:''' Many lives were lost, many lessons were learned, and I made out with a cool one hundred thou!\\
'''King Kai:''' You cheating [[CurseCutShort son of a—]]\\
'''Narrator:''' Can't hear you, don't care.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:O]]
* OedipusComplex: Subverted. [[spoiler: A drunk Bulma hits on Future!Trunks and when she realizes he's a mommy's boy, she offers to be his "mommy". Cue internal scream and him changing subjects at light speed.]]
* OffingTheMouth: Why King Vegeta killed his messenger Butarega. There's a flashback scene that shows King Vegeta (Vegeta's father) getting a message. When the messenger gives a MathematiciansAnswer to a question, King Vegeta promptly blasts the messenger, mumbling "Freakin' smartass" afterward.
-->'''Butarega:''' King Vegeta, I have urgent news!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' Speak, Butarega.\\
'''Butarega:''' Bardock has gone absolutely mad, Sire!\\
'''Bardock:''' FREEZA!!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' What's all the commotion about?\\
'''Butarega:''' He's been telling everyone that Freeza plans to destroy Vegeta!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' Wait, my son, [[{{Egopolis}} the planet]], or me?\\
'''Butarega:''' ...[[KillEmAll Yes]].\\
(Butarega is blasted by King Vegeta)\\
'''King Vegeta:''' [[OffingTheMouth Freakin' smartass]].
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The Ginyu Force being pwned out of King Kai's planet... [[spoiler: by KING KAI HIMSELF]].
* OhCrap:
-->'''Vegeta:''' (in the middle of a BeamOWar) This is the end, Kakarot. You don't stand a chance! I put all of my power into this attack. Now perish with the rest of your pathetic world!\\
'''Goku:''' Kaio-ken...\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[BigNo Nooo]]...\\
'''Goku:''' TIMES...\\
'''Vegeta:''' No, no, no...\\
'''Goku:''' FOUR!\\
'''Vegeta:''' No, no, no, ''nononono''--''[blasted backwards into the sky]'' '''[[AtomicFBomb FUU]][[CurseCutShort UUUUU]]''' ''[50 seconds later]'' '''[[SubvertedTrope UUUUCK!]]'''
** And a bit later...
--->'''Vegeta:''' Haha! There's nothing left now! Your last hope, and you missed! You're all dead, and there isn't a damn thing you can d--[[CombinedEnergyAttack what]] [[BrickJoke smells like deer?]]
** And further still:
--->'''Vegeta:''' ''[after cutting off Oozaru Gohan's tail]'' Ha ha, I did it! [[NothingCanStopUsNow I'm the best! Around! Nothing's ever gonna keep me down]]... ''[notices Gohan is falling right towards him]'' No-NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!
** And then in episode 18, when Guru senses five "incredibly flamboyant" high power levels heading straight for the surface of planet Namek, Vegeta immediately realizes who they are (the Ginyu Force) and starts panicking that they're all going to die.
** Even [[CloudCuckooLander Goku]] has one at the end of episode 22 when he realizes that he's had his body switched with the much weaker Captain Ginyu who just punched a hole in his own chest.
** Krillin gets a funny one when Ginyu arrives in Goku's body in episode 23.
--->'''Krillin:''' Goku, what's your favorite food?\\
'''Ginyu:''' Waldorf salad.\\
'''Krillin:''' See? Double baconator-oh sh*[[SoundEffectBleep bleep]]*t.
** Jeice gets one in episode 23 while fighting Vegeta.
--->'''Jeice:''' What the hell happened to you? You were NOT this strong when you fought Recoome!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''[hands him the Saiyan Handbook]'' Looks like you have some required reading to do.\\
'''Jeice:''' Alright, let's see here. Okay, full moon, lose your tail, stronger every time you... oh. Well I'm right f''[[[SoundEffectBleep bleep]]]''ked, aren't I?\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[PreMortemOneLiner Right in the downunder.]]
** Vegeta and Krillin at the end of Episode 24.
--->'''Vegeta:''' If it didn't grant me my wish, then I'm not immortal, and Freeza's going to... going to...\\
''[Vegeta stares, and Krillin follows his gaze to where Freeza is standing.]''\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh don't mind me. By all means, ''give me some ideas.''
** When Freeza transforms in Episode 25.
--->'''Gohan:''' [[CallBack Krillin, do you feel that?]]!\\
'''Krillin:''' [[CallBack I]] ''[[CallBack taste]]'' [[CallBack that]]!\\
'''Freeza:''' [After Transforming] All done, and judging by the expression on your face, so are you.
** Freeza causes more of these in Episode 26, when he transforms again and kills the WhiteMage, and Episode 27 when he pummels Vegeta. And then Goku shows up and deflects all of his attacks...
** Goku uses the Kaio-Ken attack on Freeza, prompting [[RunningGag "Kaio-what" before getting smacked in the face.]] Then Freeza immediately recovers and says "seriously, Kaio-what?" to Goku's shocked dismay.
--->'''Goku:''' Kai-OhCrap.
--->'''Freeza:''' Thought so.
** The favor is returned with Goku's mega SpiritBomb.
--->'''Freeza:''' [[EvilLaugh Hehehehe]]... eh? Oh, somehow I completely forgot about that.\\
''[Spirit Bomb absorbs Death Ball]''\\
'''Spirit Bomb:''' '''OMNOMNOM'''.\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh, my God!
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Lampshade hung in Episode 13:
-->'''Roshi:''' Why Bulma's?\\
'''Goku:''' Well I need a ship and Bulma's dad is a scientist.\\
'''Roshi:''' I'm not even going to begin to go into what's wrong with that. I just wish you good luck.
** Dr. Briefs seems to actually ''be'' one going by the events of Lord Slug; isolating the Gay gene and finding a meteor with his combination microscope/telescope. In addition to having built a spaceship that could go to Namek despite him being a member of an apparently non-spacefaring civilization, complete with artificial gravity chamber and a suitably long-range transmitter/receiver.
* OneLinerNameOneLiner: Inverted during TheStinger of episode 21:
-->'''Goku:''' ([[ItMakesSenseInContext during a conversation about the differences between tetanus and rabies]]) Silly Gohan, animals don't eat people; people eat animals! Silly Gohan.
* OneOfUs: Kaiser Neko is apparently a Troper. He doesn't like it when people misspell Freeza's name either. "Frieza" is the spelling for the [=FUNimation=] dub, whereas "Freeza" is the spelling for the abridged series.
* OneUpSampo: In episode 25, when Freeza impales Krillin, he starts to do it repeatedly. Eventually, the stabs start turning into 1 [=UPs=].
* OnlySaneMan: Vegeta, unfortunately for him. Gohan, Piccolo, Shenron the Dragon, and Nail are also pretty stable, though with some issues. Everyone else is generally off the deep end.
* OnTheNext: Subverted in Episode 13:
--> '''Narrator:''' A new evil has revealed its face. Who are these mysterious enemies, and do Gohan and Krillin stand a chance? The answer to these questions will be revealed... Right now! Zarbon, Dodoria, Freeza, and Oh my, no.
* TheOtherDarrin: Vegeta3986 replaces Lanipator as Raditz in ''the first episode''.
** And starting in the Bardock special, [=LittleKuriboh=] replaces Lani as Freeza (subtly implied when he starts off with Lanipator and coughs mid-line, switching voices when he starts again).
** This happened with Chi Chi's casting behind the scenes. The original plan was for Whiteash to handle the character, but she backed out due to life issues before Chi Chi's first appearance. Then Krisrix voiced her for the first season. Now she's been replaced by Hnilmik, a veteran of many popular flash animations, machinima, and adaptation projects as well as voicing Ms. Fortune in VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}. Pick your favorite.
** Because Vegeta3986 left the series, everyone he played in the series thus far has been replaced as of episode 24. Kami is now voiced by WeeklyTubeShow, and Lanipator has gone back to voicing Raditz (whenever he appears, anyway). This is also going to happen to Yamcha at some point too (if they ever give him another line before [[RunningGag cutting him off]]).
*** As of Episode 28, Yamcha is voiced by [[NullmetalAlchemist Faulerro]].
* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: "We here at Team Four Star do not condone child violence... We do, however, find it ''hilarious''."
* OverlyLongGag: Jeice getting repeatedly punched in the nose.
-->'''Goku:''' So... Are you going to ''dodge'' any of these?\\
'''Jeice:''' Oh, ''that's'' what the captai-'''''[WHACK]!'''''
* OverlyLongScream: Vegeta's scream can be heard by [[SerialEscalation Krillin and Gohan miles away, Goku in outer space, King Yemma in the afterlife, and Trunks]] ''twenty years in the future''.
** Played with by Krillin in episodes 29 and 30. His scream only lasts about a second, but he repeats it over and over until Freeza blows him up. Then everyone's teleported to Earth when Dende screws Freeza over, and in four months' time Porunga is convinced to just give them six wishes right off the bat. When Krillin is revived he is still screaming. Krillin has been screaming non-stop for FOUR MONTHS.
*** A straighter example occurred when Krillin, Gohan and Bulma landed on Namek only to learn Vegeta had arrived and that he possessed four of the Dragon Balls. The scream is implied to last for the entire opening sequence and definitely twenty seconds afterwards.
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: Guru refers to Dende as the third-strongest Namekian on Namek. At the time, Dende, Nail, and Guru were the only surviving Namekians on the planet (or anywhere, for that matter).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:P]]
* PardonMyKlingon: Literally [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon]]. Dende calls Freeza a p'taq in episode 22.
* ParrotExpowhat: Any time Goku uses the Kaio-ken, someone (usually Goku's opponent) inevitably responds with some variation of "Kaio-what?"
** Bardock even gets caught up with this when he sees a vision of the future where Goku's using the Kaio-ken. Right in the middle of the fight with Dodoria's goons.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: To use Kami's spaceship, activating ''anything'' merely requires you to say "Popo." Not because that's the password, but because the ship simply knows better than to refuse.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: After arriving on Earth, a dying Guru confesses that [[spoiler:he caused the Great Drought by drinking the entire Namekian water supply. He then used the Albino Namekians as scapegoats and had them exterminated. The Namekians are horrified that they killed thousands of their own race for no reason and when Guru doesn't die immediately they ''tear him to pieces''. Then Elder Mori ate him]].
* PhraseCatcher: Poor Gohan. So far he's only hearing it from Piccolo, with Nappa joining in once. ''"NEEEERD!"'' And in Episode 18, when he says "I need an adult", Vegeta, Krillin, and Guru respond '''I am an adult!'''
** "Krillin!" "What?" "TooSoon!"
** "Dammit, [=Goku/Kakkarot!=]"
** "Goddamnit, Nappa!"
* PoorCommunicationKills: A bunch of child-soldier refugees, whose planet was conquered and destroyed by Freeza don't listen to Krillin as he tries to explain he and Gohan aren't sent by Freeza. When even [[ButtMonkey Krillin]] proves too strong for them to kill, they still won't listen and commit mass suicide.
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: Mr. Popo's flying carpet gets 10,000 miles per soul- I mean gallon. 10,000 miles per gallon...
* PowerLevels: A ZigZaggingTrope with the infamous [[Memes/{{Anime}} "Over nine THOUSAAAAND!"]] line. First Vegeta read it as 1006, then told Nappa, [[CurbStompBattle who was being pummeled senselessly by Goku]], to wait a moment.
-->'''Vegeta:''' I had the scouter upside down. ''[calmly]'' It's over 9000. ''[breaks scouter]'' Rah.\\
'''Nappa:''' ''[lying, broken, on the ground]'' Why do you sound so ''bored''?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Because he's still not a threat.\\
'''Nappa:''' But--\\
'''Vegeta:''' To me.
** Gotta love how Nappa ''quotes his own line'':
--->'''Nappa:''' Hey Vegeta, "What does the scouter say about his power level?"
** And as shown in the RunningGag below, because Raditz is so weak (with a power level of 1200), he's become the basic unit of measure. According to Vegeta in an announcement video, the new Dragon Ball Abridged page has ''OVER 9 RADITZ'' of TeamFourStar power.
** Vegeta calls out the StrongAsTheyNeedToBe aspect of power levels in Episode 26 while Piccolo is fighting Freeza.
--->'''Vegeta:''' "Wait a damn minute, something's wrong here. Back on your planet the Namek could barely stand up to Nappa, yet here he is now taking on Freeza. In his ''second form''."\\
'''Gohan:''' "What do you think happened?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' "Well either Freeza hit me so hard I'm in a delusional coma, or..."\\
'''Gohan:''' "Or..?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' "Power levels are BULL****!"
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Zarbon: "I'MMA RAPEYA, BITCH!"
** Vegeta has another in Episode 23
---> '''Ginyu:''' At least I'm not stuck in some useless body.\\
'''Vegeta, appearing behind him:''' Give me a minute.
* PrecisionFStrike: What's the best thing to say when you're about to save the world with a Spirit Bomb?
-->'''Krillin:''' BOOYAH, MOTHER[[SoundEffectBleep ****]]ER!
** Freeza has the perfect response to the news of Dodoria's death.
--->'''Freeza:''' ''...the f[[SoundEffectBleep **]]k?!''
** ''Anytime'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes Gohan]] swears, [[LetsGetDangerous you know shit's about to go down]].
--->'''Gohan:''' ''(to Freeza)'' You... Condescending... Sadistic... Callous... MOTHERF[[SoundEffectBleep #@&]]ER!
** Vegeta's response to Goku saying he trained at 100G? "FUUU[[SoundEffectBleep ******]]UUUUCCKK!"
** Vegeta realizes that Gohan, Krillin and Dende have summoned Porunga while he was napping, resulting in the only unbleeped use of the word fuck in the series proper.
--->'''Vegeta:''' "OH YOU MOTHERFUUUUUUUUUCKERS!"
--->'''Piccolo:''' ''(on another part of the planet)'' Ow, my ears!
** Freeza's Scouter before it [[ReadingsBlewUpTheScale gives up on him]]? "F**K THIS, I'M OUT!"
** Piccolo manages to get one out after Freeza blasts a hole through his chest "F**k you."
** In ''Episode of Bardock'', when the eponymous AntiHero finally realizes he's in the past: "OF ALL THE STUPID... ASININE... ''[[JumpTheShark SHARK-JUMPING]] BULLSHIT!''" It pisses him off enough he goes Super Saiyan.
** A completely unbleeped one in episode 34 after [[spoiler: Bulma and Vegeta have sex.]]
--->'''Bulma''': ...Wait.
--->'''Vegeta''': What?
--->'''Bulma''': [[spoiler: Where's your condom?]]
--->'''Vegeta''': The fuck's [[spoiler: a condom?]]
*** Aside from that, the typical bleeped versions whenever someone insulted him for wearing a pink shirt.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Only Vegeta can use "No homo" as one of these and still sound undeniably badass.
** He also plans one to use on Krillin after the dragon has been summoned.
---> '''Vegeta:''' (thinking) Ok, as soon as they summon the dragon, I'm going to rush up and snap the bald one's neck. I'm totally going to yell "Team Three Star" when I do it, too! (imagines it, and Krillin's scream) Amazing.
** Although the killing was interupted, Freeza uses a RunningGag as one to Vegeta.
-->'''Freeza:''' It's time to send you crying home to mommy.
-->'''Vegeta:''' My mother's dead.
-->'''Freeza:''' I know.
* PrisonRape: Few instances of it during Episode 5 when Vegeta and Nappa were in an Arlian prison.
--> '''Nappa:''' Hey Vegeta. Don't drop the soap.
--> '''Green Bug:''' Welcome to Series/{{Oz}}, bitch! You (Vegeta) with the spiky hair, you're gonna be my bitch! I'm gonna sell you for a cigarette but not before I violate you because you're my [[CurseCutShort bi-]]"
** Nappa does this twice.
---> "Hi, I'm Nappa and this is Vegeta. He was a prison bitch!"
* PsychopathicManchild: Nappa.
-->'''Nappa:''' Is he here yet? Is he here yet? Is he here yet?
* PsychoStrings: This appears to have become Mr. Popo's {{leitmotif}}, which plays whenever he is about to do something very painful to someone else.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
-->''*Freeza Goon B shoots the spaceship*''\\
'''Krillin:''' ''Huh... Well there goes our ship.''\\
'''Bulma:''' (offscreen) '''WHAT THE! [[PrecisionFStrike F***ING!]] ''HELL!?'''''
* PyroManiac: Oolong in the Christmas Special.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:R]]
* RapidFireComedy: Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged.
* RapidFireNo: Vegeta lets one go when he's about to get blasted away by Goku's Kamehameha.
** Part 3 of episode 30 had two instances almost back-to-back:
*** First, when Goku decides to spare Freeza some energy, King Kai can be heard repeatedly saying "No". Subverted in that it is not necessarily rapid fire.
*** Shortly after, Freeza fires a blast at Goku and Goku returns the favor (thinking Freeza is wasting the little energy he was just given, so now Goku has to give him even more) with Freeza desperately shooting off "NONONONONONONONONONONO!"
* ReactiveContinuousScream: In Episode 27:
-->'''Vegeta:''' "Healer's down!"
-->'''Krillin:''' "Need a rez!"
-->'''Gohan:''' "Out of mana!"
-->'''Vegeta starts screaming and they all follow suit.'''
** Also happens in the Abridged Abridged episode after Vegeta shouts the Over 9000 meme. He and Nappa proceed to scream at each other for a couple seconds before Vegeta kills him.
** It also happens in part 2 of Episode 10 after Vegeta wakes up after the blast from the Spirit Bomb.
* ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: During Freeza and Vegeta's power struggle, Freeza's scouter climbs up to "F**K THIS, I'M OUT" and then explodes.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Krillin lets loose pent-up aggression on Bulma:
--> '''Krillin:''' Well, I dunno, maybe you could have ''bitched'' at him, how 'bout that! That's all you appear to be good for these days! Huh?! Used your bitch-fu on him! Bulma: The Mistress of Bitching; that's what they should call you! ''(a few scenes later)'' ...seriously! Five ancient Sages of Bitchdom all gathered together on the peaks of Mt. Bitch to proclaim your birth! And a hundred years later, when all the Bitch Stars had aligned, you were born and made everbody's life around you a living hell, because '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis YOU! ARE SUCH! A BITCH!]]'''
** Goku delivers one to Freeza without realizing it.
---> '''Freeza''' Unfortunately, Vegeta and I were having a disagreement. He wanted himself to live, and well... I didn't.\\
'''Goku''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=xYpfCrJPry4#t=516s Why do you wanna die]]?\\
'''Freeza''' No, I meant I wanted him to di-\\
'''Goku''' Is it because you look weird?\\
'''Freeza''' WHAT?!\\
'''Goku''' Oh well you know you've got that big head, those weird lips, and that tail -\\
(Freeza attacks Goku, who just shrugs it off)\\
'''Goku''' And you don't have ears...\\
'''Freeza''' Okay, NO.\\
(Freeza attacks Goku again, much more violently. Goku just shrugs it off again)\\
'''Goku''' And to top it all off? You're really kind of a jerk.
* RecapEpisode: Parodied hilariously with ''Dragon Ball Kai Abridged,'' which recaps the entire Saiyan saga in a little more than two minutes.
* RecordNeedleScratch: Happens when the warrior Namek confronting Freeza breaks out of his heroic speech because of his annoyance with Freeza's verbal heroic speech lines count; also happens after Krillin comments that he's not the first person to die in the series moments after Goku dies (leading to the first instance of the "Krillin! TooSoon!" gag).
* RecycledInSpace: In-universe, though most are examples of SpaceX. See that entry for the full list.
** Two specific instances stand out, since they actually use the "in space" bit: Jeice actually describes Space Australia as "Australia... in space" and the restaurant Spaceys has "good food... in space".
* RecycledScript: Parodied [[{{In-Universe}} in]] Lord Slug Abridged. Several of Slug's henchmen get fried after they accidentally refer to him as "King Piccolo", and even the Dragon finds his wish ''very'' familiar...
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Vegeta learns that Krillin doesn't have the four-star dragonball, he breaks a blood vessel out of pure rage, causing his eyes to appear red.
** Shows up again in episode 19.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jeice and Burter.
-->'''Ginyu:''' Burter was so tall... and blue! And you're so short, and red! It was the perfect little yin-yang thing we had going.
** More literal example with Gozu and Mezu.
* RememberedICouldFly: Played with when Nappa suddenly remembers he can fly ''while he's flying.''
** And Goku when Nimbus didn't make it to the hospital to catch him in time.
** Hindsight's a bitch, eh Raditz?
* ReminiscingAboutYourVictims: The Misfit Minion who raped Rudolph seems awfully fond of that memory...
* {{Retcon}}:
** [[spoiler: Dodoria's gender. Dodoria was referenced with male pronouns in "Bardock: Father of Goku" but is a woman in the series later on.]]]
* RetconningTheWiki: Freeza is apparently a WikiVandal, changing the Saiyan page to say "Stupid monkeys hit by falling rocks".
* RetiredMonster: Dende describes the horror and blood-spilling that occurred when there was a drought and Guru had to lead them through it. And he was not talking about the drought.
* {{Retirony}}: Probably coincidental, but Zarbon mentioned that his one-year anniversary [[spoiler:with his girlfriend]] was coming up in the very episode that Vegeta kills him.
* RhetoricalQuestionBlunder: Happens a fair amount when Goku and Freeza interact.
-->'''Freeza:''' [[WouldHurtAChild Really, killing [children] is a kindness.]] I could retract that kindness if you wish, but then who's the villain?
-->'''Goku:''' Y-You.
-->'''Freeza:''' N-No...that was a rhetorical question.
-->'''Goku:''' And I gave you a rhetorical answer.
* RipVanTinkle: Related but squickier example. After been stuck on a space ship with a screaming toilet and Bulma in her underwear, Krillin hides in a cave and uses the opportunity to let off steam. After he and Gohan fly after the villains, Bulma enters the cave to set up camp. Cue the screaming.
* TheRival: Yamcha insists that he and Tenshinhan are rivals in the second Q&A. Tenshinhan disagrees.
* RocksFallEveryoneDies: Vegeta tries to do this when he's fed up with the idiocy in the first season between Nappa and Goku.
-->'''Vegeta:''' [[BerserkButton That's it]], [[KillEmAll everyone dies]]! [[EarthShatteringKaboom Say goodbye to your planet, Kakarot]]!\\
'''Goku:''' [[IdiotHero That's not very nice]].\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[CaptainObvious OF COURSE NOT]], [[CardCarryingVillain I'M FUCKING EVIL]]!
* RuleOfFunny: Sometimes used for the sake of a punchline.
** The only explanation for how Vegeta's scanner readout was upside down when he was wearing it on the same side as usual.
*** Maybe there's a button that flips the display for when the user wants o wear it on the opposite side, and he hit it by mistake?
** And also probably the only reason that Bojack is inside King Kai's planet when in the movie, he's actually in ''a star'' that happened to be near King Kai's planet.
** As well as the reason Goku has a horrific memory followed by an aneurysm when seeing Popo at the start of Season 2, yet the same episode has a flashback depicting him casually asking Popo for a ride to fight Vegeta and Nappa.
*** For one thing, we don't know that he was ever face to face with Popo in the Lookout. For another, a lot of things are scarier when you're helpless in a hospital bed.
** Fake Namek.
** [[WordOfGod KaiserNeko's]] initial explanation for the muffin button gag, though when one fan [[Fridge/DragonBallAbridged came up with a plausible in-universe explanation]], Kaiser basically said SureWhyNot
* RuleOfThree: A few of these are slipped in every now and then.
-->'''Vegeta:''' "I find Cui, I kill Cui. I find Dodoria, I kill Dodoria. I find this Dragonball, I take this Dragonball. Let's see what else I can find."
* RunningGag: The "Krillin Owned" tally, references to how weak Raditz is, Piccolo calling Gohan a nerd, Yamcha calling Tenshinhan and Chaozu gay (with Krillin picking up the slack after Yamcha dies), and Krillin being told it's TooSoon after making an insensitive remark (i.e., comparing the rundown city to New Orleans during his training, loudly proclaiming that he's not the first to die after Goku dies, telling Goku that Chaotzu is "here... and there... and there..." after Chaotzu exploded).
** Vegeta's use of the titles of rock songs ("Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet and "Rock You Like A Hurricane" by The Scorpions") for a Pre-Ass Kicking One Liner.
** For the first few episodes, DOOOOOOOOOOOOOODGE! (It shows up again later.)
** Also, Goku's Kaio-Ken. Every time he shouts the name, someone goes "[something][[note]]usually Kaio[[/note]] What?" and gets punched in the face. Happens twice to Vegeta, and it even happens to Bardock during the special -- he gets a future vision of Goku using it and stops blocking his opponent's moves.
*** Heck, the gag isn't even restricted to this series. It manages to earn a reference in ''DeathBattle'', where Masako steps in to voice Goku in the "Goku VS Superman" fight, inflicting the gag on the Man of Steel.
** Zarbon's {{Double Entendre}}s that do nothing but heavily imply that he's gay [[spoiler: even though episode 17 reveals that he's straight and just so happens to speak in homosexual innuendo]].
** Bojack being stuck in the center of King Kai's planet.
** "I don't know what this [name] is, but it sounds [adjective]."
** One that shows up in a couple recent episodes:
--->'''Character A:''' ''"(talks about bringing something along for an emergency)."''\\
'''Character B:''' ''"Krillin?"''\\
'''Character A:''' ''"Krillin."''
** In episode 18:
--->'''Not Gohan:''' ''[says or does something creepy]''\\
'''Gohan:''' I need an adult.\\
'''Not Gohan:''' I ''am'' an adult.
** Krillin can't shut up when he's scared.
** George Takei.
---> ''Oh my...''
** "[[ADateWithRosiePalms I did it in the pod on the way here.]]"
** One appears to be forming where someone mentions Yamcha, and another person remarks that they don't know who he is, but still manage to make fun of him for being weak.
** "Quack!"
** Recently, the person who gives the disclaimer will die that episode.
** As of Episode 24, cutting off Yamcha before he can say anything.
*** This gag is the result of RealLifeWritesThePlot due to Yamcha and Kami's voice actor [[NarutoAbridged Vegeta3986]] leaving the team. Kami was quickly given a replacement, but to emphasize Yamcha's ButtMonkey status they don't let him speak.
** It hurts to laugh.
** Goku thinks his enemies have comic book super powers, such as being X-Men or having Bat-Vision.
** Every time someone mentions "that mountain over there."
--->"Actually it looks more like a Platea-UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!"
** Icarus gets eaten in each special he appears in.
** The words on the back of Vegeta's pink shirt keep changing, become more suggestive each time.
** Aliens keep mispronouncing Earth as Ee-arth.
** Everyone making fun of Vegeta for his pink shirt, knowing full well how much it pisses him off.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:S]]
* SadistTeacher: Mr. Popo
-->'''Kami:''' Mr. Popo, where did you send them? \\
'''Popo:''' I'll tell you where they're ''not'': '''''safe'''''.
* SanitySlippage: Trying to cope with the fact that Gohan stole one of his dragonballs, Vegeta starts to lose his mind, and his eyes become bloodshot. He soon snaps out of it though when someone else catches his attention.
* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler:The Albino Namekians for the Great Drought. Guru drank it all]].
* ScheduleSlip: Lampshaded by Krillin in episode 24, when he mentions that it feels like they've been on Namek for a whole year.
** Specials after the first season would often raise the question of when the second season was starting and harshly shout down the person asking it.
** In one [=FAQ=] special the question on the schedule for the show was finally addressed... by [[TheUnintelligible Bubbles]].
* SchmuckBait:
--> '''Popo''': (to [[spoiler: Garlic Jr.]] who just insulted him and has no idea what he's capable of in this universe) "Oh please, ''do'' go on."
* TheScream: Krillin in episode 13, though he's prone to shrieking in horror anyway. Just usually not to the extent where it ''[[OverlyLongGag goes on longer than a minute]] and can be heard miles away.''
-->'''Vegeta:''' Ugh, I just got here and already this planet's annoying me.
** Vegeta gives off the granddaddy of all screams in episode 18. It can be heard from '''''EVERYWHERE'''''.
---> '''Gohan:''' "Krillin, do you hear that?"\\
'''Krillin:''' "I ''feel'' that."\\
'''Freeza:''' "What the devil is that noise?"\\
'''Goku in his spaceship:''' "Ahh, time for a delicious sports dri--huh? The heck is that?"\\
'''King Yemma in the afterlife:''' "Purgatory... Hell... Denise? Denise, do you hear that? Oh God, is that my wife!? LEAVE ME ALONE! YOU ALREADY TOOK THE KIDS, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT!?"\\
'''Trunks from 20 years in the future, on another planet, in another solar system:''' "Alright mom. Once that time machine is done, I can go back into the past to save Goku and my Fathe--... Daddy?"
* ScreamingAtSquick: Bulma hits on Future Trunks. She flirts with him by saying "I'll be your mommy" in reply to finding out he's a "momma's boy". On the outside, Trunks looks calm. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-XAzDHco1w8#t=611s On the inside however, totally different story.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere
-->'''Vegeta:''' [[HumiliationConga Crushed and broken]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext beneath an unconscious, naked child.]] Yup, I think I'm done here.
** As Freeza and Vegeta are fighting, Freeza's scouter keeps counting higher and higher before reading, "F**k This, I'm Out" and exploding.
* SelectiveObliviousness: Kami doesn't notice Mr. Popo's AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, even when it's directed at him.
* SelfParody: [[Anime/DragonBallKai Dragonball Z Kai Abridged]], which parodies the very concept of TheAbridgedSeries by retelling the entire first season in ''two minutes''.
* {{Sentai}}: The Ginyu Force. Vegeta lampshades this by asking Gohan if he's watched any ([[FridgeLogic how he'd know of those shows on the other hand...]]).
** Space Hulu.
** Figures.
--->'''Gohan:''' Vegeta, if you don't mind me asking, what are we in for?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Ever watched PowerRangers?\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Ninja Turtles?]]\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Manga/SailorMoon?\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' BeetleBorgs?\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Series/VRTroopers?\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[SuperhumanSamuraiSyberSquad Samurai Syber Squad?]]\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ...TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills?\\
'''Gohan:''' Oh yeah!\\
'''Vegeta:''' God dammit!
* SeriesContinuityError: Goes hand in hand with reusing certain clips for reaction shots, but a particularly noticeable instance happens in Episode 19. As part of the ''Wheel of Death'' TV show gag, the scene cuts to Freeza watching on the television Vegeta blew up in a previous episode and with a Dragon Ball behind him when all seven are currently being held by Ginyu.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Gohan manages to make this sound badass, who is usually treated with a FlatWhat before he tells them in laymen's terms.
-->'''Gohan:''' I'M GOING TO EVISCERATE YOU, AND USE YOUR GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT AS A CONDOM WHILE I FORNICATE WITH YOUR SKULL!\\
'''Nappa:''' [[FlatWhat What]].\\
'''Gohan:''' I'M GONNA SKULL**** YOU!
* SexyDiscretionShot: Bulma and Vegeta's sex scene. They only show the outside of Bulma's house in the night while the audio is they humping...and Vegeta revealing he doesn't know what a condom is.
* [[ShesAManInJapan She's A Man In The Original Series]]: [[spoiler: Dodoria.]]
* ShipTease: Bulma dreamed about Vegeta coming to rape her. Okay, yeah, not the best tease, but they do canonically hook up, so...
* ShootTheMedicFirst: Directly from the source material, but Dende is nice enough to point out that he's the white mage and no-one fucks with the white mage, before being blown up.
* ShootTheMessenger: Freeza in Episode 18.
-->'''Acai:''' Lord Freeza, the Ginyu Force are scheduled to arrive in five minutes.\\
'''Freeza:''' Thank you, Acai.\\
'''Acai:''' Also, after rising concerns with our personnel...exploding, we've decided to form a union.\\
'''Freeza:''' Adorable. (Acai explodes)
** He resorts to this in the previous episode to end a rather uncomfortable discussion regarding Zarbon's sexuality.
--->'''Minion:''' Lord Freeza, Vegeta's broken out of the healing taAAAAAAANK-*BOOM!*\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh no, that minion died. Could you go and fix that, we'll continue this conversation ''never''.\\
'''Zarbon:''' Um, didn't he say something about Vegeta?
** King Vegeta in Episode 25.
** Chichi threatens Krillin with this after Krillin asks what she would do if hypothetically he were to reveal the fates of Goku and Gohan after the fight with Raditz.
*** Not just shooting the messenger but she threatens to "Castrate the messenger in his sleep with a rusty carving knife." Ouch.
* {{Shoryuken}}: Freeza performs one on King Vegeta in a flashback. He even shouted it, with accompanying an "You win!" and "Ya ta".
* ShoutOut: Beside ones to other AbridgedSeries, there are shout outs that range from Pokemon to LookingForGroup.
-->'''Nappa:''' For pony!
** This scream by the [[RunningGag Ricola guy]] in episode 2 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBm_2IUn4MU&feature=player_detailpage#t=387s (shown in this point in the video)]] sounds a bit like [[StarWars R2D2's scream.]]
** In Episode 4, Piccolo's line "Everyone of Gohan's race can become a giant gorilla" is delivered in the same manner as an almost identical line given by Turles in the infamous Big Green dub.
** From Episode 6: [[{{Starcraft}} "YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PYLONS."]]
** Episode six has one for [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers The Monarch]]
---> Green Bug: Welcome to Oz, bitch! Yes, you (Vegeta) with the spiky hair, you're going to be my bitch! I'm going to sell you for a cigarette but not before I violate you because you're my [[CurseCutShort bi-]]
** The TV reporter who is asked for a word to describe how dead Yamcha is gets addressed as "[[ClarkKenting Mr.]] [[{{Superman}} Kent]]". He also tells Jimmy to get a picture of the bald one.
*** That one is more of a brick joke. Superman from episode five (The Hall of Justice scene) is voiced by Hbi2K, as is, "Mr. Kent."
** [[Manga/YuYuHakusho "No." "Don't be rude, Nappa."]]
** Vegeta, I can't...[[Manga/{{Naruto}} believe it!]] That's when Krillin and Piccolo do their [[strike: multi-form techinque]] Twin Jitsu.
** In the announcement video of how the series will be hosted at Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, Vegeta portrayed himself as "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic The Nostalgia Saiyan]]".
** "[[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/IWBTG/ MOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!]]"
** [[DaveTheBarbarian you couldn't hit the side of a space barn!]]"
** A parody of the Film/{{Ghostbusters}} theme is featured [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1bxCyxUg_I at the end of episode 10]].
** When Vegeta cuts Oozaru|Gohan's tail, he starts singing [[KarateKid a familiar song]]
** The insult [[Machinima/RedVsBlue "team-killing fucktard"]] is used in Bardock Abridged.
** "[[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce This season.]] ''[[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce You.]]''" Possibly doubles as a shout-out to ''WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged'', considering Antfish is a member of TeamFourStar, and Lanipator made a guest appearence as Mr. Popo in that series.
*** A more obvious one to ATHF is the [[strike: Plutonians]] fake Namekians.
** [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries "Damn it man, I'm a doctor, not an English teacher!"]]
** From the Bardock special:
--->(Bardock is under the pile of the dead bodies of his teammates.)\\
'''Bardock:''' Oh, God! It's true! You ''do'' soil yourself when you die! [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Oh, God, it's everywhere! It's in my Dodoria wounds!]]
** The title for Episode 13: [[IronMan Dr. Briefs Made This Episode In A Cave...]] [[MemeticMutation WITHABOXOFSCRAPS!]]
** In Episode 14, Krillin references the [[Music/{{ACDC}} AC/DC]] song "Big Balls" when he sees the Namekian Dragon Balls.
--->'''Krillin:''' Whoa, those things look huge! AC/DC be damned.
** Krillin calling Dende "Little Green" might be a reference to the UK dub, in which Piccolo was referred to as "Big Green"... which Krillin calls Nail. Nail responds by [[TakeThat threatening to snap Krillin's neck if he calls him that again]].
** During the CurbStompBattle between Zarbon and Vegeta, while Vegeta is being head butted by Zarbon, he can be heard saying [[PinkyAndTheBrain poit and troz.]]
** From episode 17:
--->'''Vegeta:''' M-my power is [[http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2206/2766991854_9324a1c81b.jpg maximum]]...
** Also from Episode 17: Appule can be seen playing ''Tenkaichi Budokai 3'' as himself fighting Bardock. Doubles as a CallBack to the Bardock: TAS special.
** [[ThoseTwoGuys Gozu and Mezu]] from episode four of season one introduce themselves and speak in German accents just like Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon's body builder characters Hans and Franz from ''SaturdayNightLive''
** When the Ginyu Force landed on Planet Namek in Episode 18, they greet Freeza, saying "We're here", in a manner oddly similar to [[CodenameKidsNextDoor a group of villains synchronize when they're speaking along with having a very shallow and grave voice.]] (Alternatively, it could be a reference to Film/{{Poltergeist}}. Or both.)
** The [[EvilAlbino Albino Namekians]] could be a reference to the [[MartianManhunter White Martians]]: they're white, the other sentient species on the planet is green, and the two races don't get along too well.
** Episode 19: As he fights Gohan and Krillin, Guldo (who can stop time) does [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure something in particular]].
--->'''Guldo:''' '''''ZA! WARUDO!'''''\\
'''Krillin:''' What are you ''(time stop)'' going on abou- ''(a steamroller drops on him)''\\
'''Guldo:''' You see that? That was just a taste of my power! ''(A still intact Krillin lifts the steamroller)'' Huh?\\
'''Krillin:''' Ow! What the hell was that?\\
'''Guldo:''' ''(in disbelief)'' That... was supposed to crush you.\\
'''Krillin:''' Gohan, did you see it? His power! He can--\\
'''Gohan:''' Stop time?\\
'''Krillin:''' [[WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged --summon steamrollers]]!\\
'''Gohan:''' Y-You sure about that?\\
'''Krillin:''' Positive!
** Vegeta pulls a [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike "Look at your X, now look at me"]] in episode 19.
** The Spaceys restaurant is is parody of the Sonic Drive-In restaurant chain.
** The uncensored version of Vegeta's ClusterBleepBomb has the line "find me in the Alps", a Shout Out to an edited line from the TV version of ''Film/TheBigLebowski''.
** In the ChristmasSpecial, Piccolo says to [[EvilCounterpart Turles]], "[[SouljaBoy Bitch, you look like Goku]]."
** Piccolo and Turles also reference HarryPartridge and his [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/539314 "Nicholas Cage Wants Cake"]] short.
--->'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' I want him.\\
'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' ''I want him.''\\
'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''I want him.'''\\
'''Turles:''' You want--you want--\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''''I WANT THAT KID!'''''
** In the Bardock Special, there are numerous shoutouts to ImageBoards and the memes prevalent on them:
--->'''Dodoria:''' That Bardock's a pretty cool guy.\\
'''Zarbon:''' He conquers planets and doesn't afraid of anything.\\
'''Freeza:''' Doesn't afraid of anything ''indeed.''
** And the whole of Episode 20 to ProfessionalWrestling.
*** Also, Recoome's theme song is [=E1M1=] from ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''. ...[[CatchPhrase because that's what his name rhymes with.]]
** Super Kami Guru tells Dende that he could be {{Batman}}.
--->'''Dende:''' I don't know who that is!\\
'''Super Kami Guru:''' This is why we need TV!!!
** Vegeta [[CoupDeGrace finishes off Recoome and Burter]] with a [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Renegade interrupt]].
--->'''Goku:''' Vegeta! That was not very Paragon!\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[MassEffect Renegade for life.]]
** When Goku asks if Vegeta actually lost to Recoome:
--->'''[[spoiler: Ghost Nappa]]:''' [[FightClub You fell down some stairs.]]\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[CreepyMonotone I fell down some stairs.]]
** A great one in Episode 23 as Jeice meets his demise at the hands of Vegeta:
--->'''Jeice:''' ''(right before he dies)'' [[Franchise/JurassicPark Clever girl.]]
** Again in Episode 23
--->'''Vegeta:''' ''(after getting punched by Jeice)'' [[AnimalHouse Thank you, sir. May I have another?]]
** In Episode 24: [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion "Stop right there, Namekian scum!"]]
*** Also: [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries "SUMMONITSUMMONITSUMMONITSUMMONIT-"]]
*** When Mr. Popo is seen growing pot at the end of Episode 24, he is humming "Because I Got High" by Afroman.
---->'''Mr. Popo:''' I'm not getting rid of it.\\
'''Kami:''' Are you kidding? That shit's great for my glaucoma.
*** The Wilhelm scream is referred to as such in episode 24, when the soldiers are discussing, and trying to imitate, it. Then they actually do it with some "help" from Vegeta.
** In Episode 25, one of Gohan's {{Unstoppable Rage}}s references another character famous for them:
---> [[TheIncredibleHulk "GOHAN CRUSH EFFEMINATE ALIEN! GOHAN STRONGEST THERE IS!"]]
** After Krillin cuts Freeza's tail off in Episode 25, you can hear him make [[Film/TheThreeStooges Curley]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Zoidberg's]] 'whoop' sound as he runs.
** In Episode 25, Councilor Nappa appears to be wearing a [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} particularly familiar yet oddly concerning]] choice of [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v317/Darkness-a-Light/CouncilorNappa.png hats]].
** Piccolo's BigDamnHeroes moment in Episode 25 accompanied by theme music for a [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger different Demon King.]]
** Lord Slug says [[MortalKombat Get Over Here/Come Here]] when he extends his arms to grab Goku.
** Also, after Lord Slug has conquered earth.
--->'''Chichi:''' Bulma, Gohan is missing. And so is the outfit Piccolo gave him. [{{Beat}}] And ''Film/RedDawn1984'' is on Netflix!\\
[cut to Gohan fighting Slug's henchmen]\\
'''Gohan:''' [[MemeticMutation WOLVERINES!!!]]
** Piccolo comments that Freeza's [[Franchise/{{Alien}} third form]] will make RidleyScott sue them. This is a reference to Chris Rock's line from Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack''.
** The following is an odd reference to GTA IV;
--->'''Krillin:''' I'm an optimist.\\
'''Vegeta:''' You're an idiot.
** Who else but [[AxeCrazy Vegeta]] should make a 40K reference in Dragonball Z? This was said during his BeamSpam attack in Episode 27:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA!]]
** The line "Please don't break my arm" from Lord Slug Abridged is spoken like it`s being read from textspeak. This is possibly a reference to a troll on ''SecondLife'' named Ralph Pootawn. He`s a big green creature that when is asked to "Plz" not do something responds with "No".
** In episode 29, Goz sings a bit of "Haben sie Gehort das Deutsche Band?" from ''Film/TheProducers''.
** In episode 30, Part 1, when Goku goes Super Saiyan, he says a line that would make WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck proud of him.
** In episode 30, Part 2, when Vegeta [[RiseFromYourGrave rising from his grave]]:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [[Film/DawnOfTheDead When there's no more room in hell]], Vegeta will walk the--''[notices Namek collapsing on itself]''--other hell. What the hell?
*** Not the only Romero reference in episode 30. When [[spoiler: Guru is eaten alive]] his last words are [[DayOfTheDead "Choke on them"]].
** According to Bulma, her father is a [[Film/TheAvengers genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist]].
** The blip.tv exclusive [[TheStinger stinger]] for episode 30 Part 3 has [[spoiler:King Cold and his men turning the maimed Freeza into Mecha Freeza mimicking Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader at the end of ''RevengeOfTheSith'', complete with BigNo]]
** When Goku goes Super Saiyan in episode 30, Freeza stands there stunned and says "[[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker That's not funny]]."
** Revenge of Cooler has a couple from the titular character.
---> '''Cooler:''' "[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Tonight, I dine on monkey soup]]!"
---> '''Cooler:''' "[[Film/TheDarkKnightRises When your planet is in ashes, you have my permission to die]]."
---> '''Goku:''' "[[SaturdayNightLive I got a fever, and the only prescription is]] [[EatTheDog Icarus]]."
** Episode of Bardock includes a [[TheStinger after credits sequence]] that references a famous DubInducedPlotHole by having Bardock refered to as a "[[TortureTechnician brilliant scientist]]" who admits he's working on a "fake moon thing."
** Also in Episode of Bardock, when the [[spoiler:primitive Saiyan]] Tupac gets blown up by Chilled, Dr. Dre calls him a "[[TheNotoriousBIG big... small guy]]"
** The [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans]] try to sing "Welcome Christmas" from ''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' to both Bardock and Chilled. Both stop them before they get any farther than the first eight words.
** There's a subtle one in episode 32 when Gohan and Vegeta ask for their suits of armor, with Vegeta sounding [[TheIncredibles a bit like a certain ice-themed superhero...]]
--->'''Gohan:''' "Mom, where's my Saiyan suit?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' (with a country accent) "Woman, [[TheIncredibles where is my Saiyan suit?]]"
** When Future Trunks goes Super Saiyan and Freeza loses it, the theme for a different alien cyborg starts playing...
--->'''Freeza''' "[[Series/DoctorWho EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!]]
*** In Episode 34, Future Trunks' time machine vanishes to the iconic TARDIS sound effect.
** Later in episode 33 when [[spoiler:Trunks is lifting up Freeza's planet-destroying-attack]] the opening theme from ''The Lion King'' plays.
** And this from episode 33
---> '''Vegeta''' "Hey, did someone drink the last Hetap?! I'll kill you!"\\
'''Krillin''' "[[Film/TheThreeStooges Woop, woop, woop, woop, woop!]]"
** In the Cooler Movie, Krillin mentions that he doesn't want to go pick the Senzu beans because last time he forgot Korin's name and kept calling him "Whiskers the Wonder Cat", which is the name that was given to him in the infamous Harmony Gold dub.
** The title of episode 34 is [[XMen "News of Future Past"]].
** From Episode 35 we have this:
---> '''Goku''' (talking about the androids) "I wonder if they [[DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep dream of electric sheep...]]"
** As well as this:
---> '''Piccolo''' "Look! In the sky!"\\
'''Goku''' "Is it a [[SuperMan bird?]]\\
'''Piccolo''' "It's the androids!"\\
'''Goku''' "...my second guess was a [[SuperMan plane.]]
*** This is a double-ShoutOut, since Masakox voiced Goku when he ''fought'' Superman on DeathBattle.
* ShownTheirWork: In episode 19, Krillin says "I once had a crush on a little Indian boy that I thought was a girl..." This actually happened (with Upa) in Manga/DragonBall.
** In Season 2's {{Stinger}}, [[spoiler: Nappa]] reveals that he hired a "Mark Satan" to help him do a film. "Mark" is actually Mr. Satan's first name as revealed by Akira Toriyama.
*** [[spoiler:Nappa]] also mentions that the name isn't just right and considers Hercule (the English name for Mr. Satan) as an alternative.
** Toward the end of episode 30, when Yamcha's freaking out over Bulma dumping him, King Kai has Tenshinhan break one of Yamcha's legs. Yamcha screams "My ''good'' leg!" Tien broke Yamcha's left leg during the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai in Manga/DragonBall.
** After Sauza is killed, his last words are that he'll see his cousin Jeice in Space Hell. Video game information often says that not only are Jeice and Sauza of the same race, but they apparently hate each other (nothing about them being cousins, though).
** When Future Trunks introduces himself to Goku, his nervousness causes him to accidentally call him Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong is the name of the Monkey King from ''JourneyToTheWest'', which Dragonball was loosely based on.
* ShutUpKirk: Freeza attempts this on Goku in Episode 30 when he interrupts his BadassBoast by shooting him in the face. Goku [[NoSell No Sells]] it and finishes anyways.
* ShutUpHannibal: Delivered to Freeza in Episode 25.
-->'''Freeza:''' Well, well, well. I'm legitimately surprised that I missed one of you. But that's just fine, because I've been working on some jokes. Now tell me if you've heard this one. How many Namekians does it take to--\\
[=*gets punched and sent flying*=]\\
'''Piccolo:''' Just one.
** Freeza gets it again in Episode 28.
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh please, everyone's always on about the children. I already tried leaving them alive, but all they do is grow up under my rule or dedicate their pathetic lives to revenge. Usually both. Really, killing them this a kindess. I can retract that kindness if you wish, but then who's the villain?
--->'''Goku:''' (totally lost) Y... you.
* SiblingRivalry: Although the two are never shown interacting with each other (just as in the actual series), Freeza and Kooler really hate each other. Freeza repeatedly calling Kooler a prick and all.
** Then again, Kooler freely admits that he's a prick.
* SingleBiomePlanet: Namek, which is lampshaded by Piccolo as soon as he's wished there.
-->'''Piccolo:''' "Ugh... Everything looks the goddamn same on this ''goddamn PLANET!''"
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Piccolo
-->"Anyway, I figure, in order to unleash your hidden potential, I'd have to put you in immense physical danger, so I'm gonna throw you at that mountain."
** HilarityEnsues when it doesn't work.
* SlapSlapKiss: When Vegeta is training in 400G despite being hurt, Bulma starts arguing with him over a video link. They start cussing each other out. Eventually, Bulma orders him to meet her in her bedroom in 10 minutes. And that is where Trunks comes from.
* SlasherSmile: Vegeta shows a nice one, just after he gets a warm greeting by Namekian villagers who tell him where find the next Dragon Ball. Cue the opening.
** Ginyu has a hell of a slasher smile himself after punching a hole in his own chest, KubrickStare and all.
** Freeza seems to have one all of the time.
* SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat: The Christmas Tree of Might falls not only under Global Threat, but is classified as "Disney Evil" when Goku learns that it's sucking all the Christmas Joy out of the planet.
* SmokeShield: Parodied
-->'''Krillin:''' Did we get him?\\
'''Gohan:''' Krillin, [[FridgeLogic we can feel his energy]], why even bother asking?\\
'''Krillin:''' I'm an optimist.\\
'''Vegeta:''' You're an idiot.
* SoLastSeason: Piccolo's weighted clothing.
-->'''Piccolo:''' Don't think you have the upper hand. [[IAmNotLeftHanded I'm still wearing weighted armor.]]\\
'''Freeza:''' Weighted armor, hm? How quaint. How much does it weigh?\\
'''Piccolo:''' Same as it always did. One hundred kilo's... [{{Beat}} and SlasherSmile from Freeza] Oh. [[LampshadeHanging That concept kinda lost meaning after a while, didn't it?]]
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay:
-->'''Gohan:''' [[GrandTheftMe Krillin, that's not my dad!]]\\
'''Krillin:''' Gohan, of ''course'' it's your dad! Goku, what's your favorite food?\\
'''Goku/Ginyu:''' Waldorf salad.\\
'''Krillin:''' See? Double Baconat[[OhCrap oh]]''[[PrecisionFStrike shit]].''
** Later:
--->'''Goku:''' ''[dazed]'' Yay, I'm me again!\\
'''Krillin:''' Wait... Goku, what is your favorite food?\\
'''Goku:''' ''[confused]'' ...Favorite?\\
'''Krillin:''' He's him again!
* SoundtrackDissonance: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDzXT_C1qJU This]] plays while Nappa annihilates the Earth's military. From Nappa's perspective, though, the music is very appropriate, since he considers it to be his best day ever.
** Freeza's "[[TheSoundOfMusic favorite things]]" song.
** In Episode 27, while Freeza is terrorizing Vegeta and the others, Goku is sitting in his pod singing "Lime in the Coconut" and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". King Kai and Tien actually join in on the last one.
* SpacePirate: Bojack, who was a modern criminal type in-series (or rather, movie), but here is a traditional arrrr type, possibly to make up for the fact that he is a voice-only character.
* SpaceX: From "space pods", "space armor", "space barns" and "space ducks" to "Space Vogue", "space Twitter," "Space Skype," "Space Hulu," freakin' "Space ''Mexico''" and "[[OldYeller Old Space Yeller]]".
** Lampshaded by Piccolo in episode 2, providing the quote on the SpaceX page.
** Lampshaded once again when we learn that Jeice (who had an [[UnexplainedAccent Unexplained Australian Accent]] in the original series dub) comes from Space Australia.
--->'''Jeice:''' "More specifically, Space Brisbane. Go Space Broncos!"\\
Gotta be careful though Burter, or a space dingo'll eacher space baby.
*** The "Space Brisbane" part was specifically to set up a donation request to help the real Brisbane, which was being ravaged by floods at the time.
** Episode 20 gives us space sodas, space burgers, and a restaurant called Spacey's.
--->''It's good food, in space''
** Episode 23 mentions Space Pickles, and Krillin mistakenly says Jeice is from Space UsefulNotes/NewZealand.
** Planet Namek is the Space Boonies, according to Freeza.
** Piccolo switched from Myspace to Spacebook.
** There are even Space Eggs
** For those who are curious, here's the complete list: Space Pods, Space Armor, Space Barns, Space Ducks, [[{{Twitter}} Space Twitter]], [[{{Mexico}} Space Mexico]], Space Skype, [[{{Hulu}} Space Hulu]], [[UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} Space Australia]][[note]]Space Aus' for short[[/note]], Space Brisbane, a sports team called the Space Broncos, Space Dingos, Space Babies, Space Soda, Space Burger, a restaurant called Spaceys[[note]]It's good food, in space[[/note]], Space XXXX[[note]]Space Australian Lager[[/note]], Space VB[[note]]Another Australian lager but described as piss.[[/note]], Space Boonies, Space Pickles, [[UsefulNotes/NewZealand Space New Zealand]], Space Cats, arguably {{Myspace}}, [[{{Facebook}} Spacebook]], Space Eggs, Space Milk, [[HotPotato Hot Space Potato]], Space Hell, Space Frenchman, [[OldYeller Old Space Yeller]][[note]]'''Krillin:''' How is that a thing?![[/note]], Space Christ, Space Radio Shack, Space Best Buy[[note]]-Buy-Buy-Buy-Circuit City[[/note]] and Space Triple A.
** In their playthrough of HaloReach, there's also a mention of Space Europe and Space Guantanamo.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: The Kannasans, though they died in the original show, managed to miraculously repopulate, as said by Vegeta in episode 26.
** Perhaps they hid their young since THEY CAN SEE THE FUTURE!? and knew the Saiyans would destroy their race otherwise...makes quite a bit of sense actually, heck Toma even asks why they apparently didn't know the Saiyans were coming if they were psychic.
** [[spoiler: Nappa]]
* SpecialEditionTitle: The Ginyu Force episodes use their title sequence instead of the regular.
* SpecialGuest: KyleHebert (the voice of the narrator, teenage Gohan, and Ox King from the FUNimation dub of the actual series) makes an appearance as the narrator at the end of the second movie, which was before the official formation of TeamFourStar but contained most of the original voices of this abridged series.
** Hebert also provided his voice for the role of Santa Claus in the ''[[ChristmasSpecial Christmas Tree of Might]]'' special.
** ChristopherSabat, the voice of Vegeta in the Funimation dub, makes a cameo as the voice of two technicians in the Bardock Special.
*** Becomes utterly hilarious when you think he and Lani are in pretty much the same role, what with voicing the majority of the cast and all.
** And Christopher Robin Miller of ''ProfessorLayton'' fame. He gives Bubbles a classy British accent in ''Lord Slug Abridged''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In episode 17, Vegeta almost used the dub spelling of Freeza's name in his note.
** In Episode 33, we find out that Trunks was apparently taught the dub spelling, causing him to mis-pronounce Freeza's name as "Fry-za".
* {{Spoiler}}: Shouted constantly by the people on Freeza Planet 419 (A.K.A. Kanassa) after the native species mysteriously repopulates itself. All of these are ItWasHisSled to the fandom, but none of them have happened in-universe yet.
-->[[spoiler:"Bulma and Vegeta have a kid!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Cell reaches Perfect form!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"The real Buu is a child!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Goten and Trunks become a guy!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Gohan is the strongest in the universe but still doesn't do craaaap!"]]
* {{Squee}}: Goku does one when King Kai warns him about Freeza.
* {{Squick}}: Many moments in-universe, most notably this conversation;
-->'''Dodoria''': And that's why I was considered the most beautiful, and fertile, woman on my home planet. Before Freeza blew it up.\\
'''Vegeta''': He tends to do that. Also, ''huuuugh.''
* StayInTheKitchen: Dr. Briefs to his wife.
* [[StopOrIWillShoot Stay Where You Are And We'll Shoot You]]
-->'''Krillin:''' Don't you mean "''Or'' we'll shoot you"?\\
'''Mook:''' We know what we said.
* StealthHiBye: Ginyu pulls the Hi part on Vegeta twice.
-->'''Ginyu:''' Hi Vegeta.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Hi Ginyu.
* StealthPun: Recoome's {{leitmotif}} is "At Doom's Gate" from ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}'', punning on his famous "Recoome rhymes with doom" line.
* StockPhrases: Freeza keeps count of [[ClicheStorm how many times he hears these from would-be heroes]]. He keeps track of even more than we do due to his constant exposure to heroic speeches; phrases such as "We're... going to... fuck your face!", which we would consider unique ones, he counts as stock, having heard it ''twelve times'' so far.
** And as for the more common ones?
--->'''Namekian Elder:''' That...that wasn't part of the deal!\\
'''Freeza:''' Aaaand FIVE HUNDRED! Dodoria, [[PreMortemOneLiner show 'em what they've won!]]
** In the Bardock special, Freeza complains about having to hear said speeches.
** In Episode 27, Goku finally gives one Freeza has never heard: "Imma deck you in the schnoz!"
* StockScream: The Wilhelm Scream can be heard in the Bardock Special. Also, from the Bardock Special onwards, the dying screams of the characters from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' are used for the deaths of almost all mooks.
** The Wilhelm Scream is discussed by a pair of mooks in episode 23. They're [[ConversationalTroping discussing it and trying (and failing) to imitate it]]; they get it right when Vegeta kills them.
* StopHelpingMe: In episode 22, Super Kami Guru talks up Nail to Freeza something fierce...
-->'''Guru:''' Please. Nail isn't afraid of ''you''. He is the strongest of our race!\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh ''really''?\\
'''Nail:''' ...uhhh, sir?\\
'''Guru:''' Yeah, Nail's gonna ''destroy'' your sorry ass! They wouldn't be able to air it on the news because it'll be ''so '''BRUUUTAL!'''''\\
'''Nail:''' Sir, seriously!\\
'''Guru:''' Hush, Nail! I'm ''speaking for you''.
* StraightMan:
** The [[PsychoForHire hilariously violent]] Vegeta does not suffer fools lightly.
--->'''Vegeta:''' Nappa, what are you doing?\\
'''Nappa:''' It's his turn, Vegeta; I have to wait for him.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''(sputters in disbelief, as his nose starts bleeding)''\\
'''Nappa:''' You okay, Vegeta?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Yes, just... just an aneurysm from the sheer stupidity.\\
'''Nappa:''' Huh. Didn't think you were that stupid, Vegeta!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''(screams in rage)'' 9 minutes, 18 seconds. 9 minutes, 18 seconds!\\
'''Nappa:''' What's that, Vegeta?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Happiest. Moment. Of. My life!\\
\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[SurroundedByIdiots I'm]] ''[[SurroundedByIdiots surrounded]]'' [[SurroundedByIdiots by idiots.]]\\
'''Goku:''' I thought you were surrounded by gumdrops and ice cream!\\
''[Vegeta screams in anguished frustration]''\\
\\
'''Zarbon:''' [[CrashIntoHello Vegeta!]] [[DoubleEntendre How dare you ram into me when I'm thinking about]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext Lord Freeza and my thong.]]\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[OnlySaneMan Yeah...]] [[GenreSavvy just going to]] [[BrainBleach ignore that one entirely.]]
** Tenshinhan, while ironically being labeled gay, seems like a [[IncrediblyLamePun straight guy]], almost on par with how he's portrayed in the English dubs of DB and DBZ.
---> '''Tenshinhan:''' I'm the only serious character in this show. That's the joke.
** Also, Nail, especially in comparison with ButtMonkey Krillin and his senile and AxCrazy master, Guru.
** Gohan has so far been this for the heroes.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike:
** After Nail makes it clear to Krillin that he doesn't appreciate the nickname Krillin tried to give him...
--->'''Guru:''' Big Greeeeeen!
** Vegeta and Zarbon in Episode 17 try to lay low and don't want to fly around like a jackass saying "I've got a Dragon Ball!"[=/=]"Come to papa, you bald bastard!". They were going to say "Come and get me, Freeza" but what they heard works too.
** Gohan and Vegeta singing ''[[{{Queen}} Don't Stop Me Now]]'' in episode 18.
** Chiaotzu (almost) correctly guesses that Freeza pulled a TakingYouWithMe when Goku proved to powerful to beat, since he tried the same thing. The almost comes from the fact that Freeza would have survived if he'd done it correctly, and Chiaotzu is instead guessing King Kai's line of thought.
** Dende and King Kai thinking up the same plan to [[spoiler:get the living people off of Namek, save Goku and Freeza.]]
** In ''Episode of Bardock'', the villagers start to sing on two different occasions. Both times they are stopped, first by Bardock and then Chilled, with both saying "Stop! None of that! Shame on you!"
* [[EvilChancellor Stupid Chancellor]]: Nappa to King Vegeta.
* [[PsychicNosebleed Stupidity Nosebleed]]: Nappa makes Vegeta have one in episode 9.
* StupidSacrifice: Even Piccolo realizes that he could have simply grabbed Gohan rather than take the hit for him.
* SuddenHumility:
-->'''Gohan:''' With this powerup, I'm now as strong as you were when we fought on Earth!\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[SarcasmMode Congratulations!]] [[SoLastSeason You're still weaker than the last 3 guys I killed.]]\\
'''Gohan:''' Wow. I now know what it's like [[CantCatchUp to feel like Krillin]].\\
'''Krillin:''' Sucks, doesn't it?
* SuperSenses: Namekians and hearing. Piccolo can hear people talking... from the ''other side of the planet.''
-->'''Gohan''' (stuck on top of a cliff) How am I supposed to get down from here?\\
'''Piccolo''' (from really far away) ''CLIMB DOWN!''\\
'''Gohan:''' I can't even get any food or water! What should I do?\\
'''Piccolo:''' ''I SAID '''CLIMB DOWN!!'''''\\
'''Gohan:''' If only I had some sticks or reeds lying around... I could make a makeshift ladder, or a rope...\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''''[[{{Angrish}} AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!]]'''''
** Similarly:
--->'''Dende:''' He is on Namek.\\
'''Gohan:''' Wait, where is he?\\
'''Dende:''' [[ExactWords On Namek.]]\\
'''Piccolo:''' (''from the other side of the planet'') ''You dumbass!''\\
'''Krillin:''' Why didn't it bring him here?\\
'''Dende:''' You must be specific.\\
'''Gohan:''' Oh, so it's a sort of [[TheMonkeysPaw monkey's paw]]; you have to be careful what the hubris in your wish is.\\
'''Piccolo:''' (still distant) '''''NERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD!'''''
** And shortly after that, when Vegeta figures out Gohan and Krillin have summoned Porunga without him:
--->'''Vegeta:''' Oh, you mother--*cut to Krillin and Gohan*--fuckers!\\
'''Piccolo:''' (still distant) Ow, my ears!
** Lord Slug's weakness, which Piccolo totally exploits; Piccolo rips his ears off first so he isn't affected.
--->'''What?'''
** In 34 when Piccolo overhears Trunks and Goku's conversation and laughing and taunting Vegeta:
--->'''Piccolo:''' HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!\\
'''Vegeta:''' What's so funny!?\\
'''Piccolo:''' [[RunningGag Your shirt!!]]
* SuicideAsComedy: Played darkly straight in Episode 34, where Future Trunks reveals that [[spoiler: Yamcha kills himself upon learning that Bulma is pregnant with Vegeta's child]]. Even ''Goku'' is taken aback.
-->''Shot of Yamcha's hanging corpse
-->'''Goku''': ''Dark''.
* SuperSentaiStance: The Ginyu Force, as expected. In Episode 22, Goku tells Ginyu it's boring, and an offended Ginyu says that he makes these poses to raise morale.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Vegeta uses these exact words when he realizes Goku's no brighter than Nappa.
** Also Freeza, much to his chagrin.
*** Later subverted when [[HypercompetentSidekick Ginyu]], quirky as he might be, calms Freeza down with sensible advice.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
** Planet Vegeta was blown up by falling rocks, not a Death Ball thrown by Freeza. At least, that's what its Wikipedia entry says.
*** P.S. Freeza rules you!
** Gohan's stupid-looking watch tells time, and nothing else...
** When Vegeta asks Krillin to almost kill him, we get a blend of this and ExactWords.
--->'''Krillin:''' And there's no reprecussion for this?\\
'''Vegeta:''' I will not punch you.\\
'''Krillin:''' Oddly specific.
*** Krillin doesn't listen to his instructions, so Vegeta threatens to punch him anyway.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:T]]
* TakeThat: The [=AWA=] special is an affectionate TakeThat to the crew at DaizenshuuEX... at least, we hope it's affectionate, considering they interviewed TFS on their podcast and played the video at their panel...
** Another one is directed at ''Film/DragonBallEvolution'':
--->'''Goku:''' "Man, this is worse than that time I was in high school, and all the guys called me "Geeko", and I was Piccolo's slave, I couldn't get [=ChiChi=] to like me, and... Oh ''wow'', [[NonSequiturThud I hit that rock harder'n I thought]]."
*** And then there's this:
---->'''Nappa:''' Wait, Vegeta! Does that mean we've offended EVERYONE?!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Hold on a minute, let me think... DRAGONBALL: THE MOVIE!\\
'''Nappa:''' Haha...aha! Aaaaah, high school!
** And then this jab at a certain dub.
--->'''Krillin:''' I know! I'm gonna call you Big Green!\\
'''Nail:''' CALL ME THAT AGAIN AND I WILL '''SNAP YOUR NECK!'''
** Vegeta says this to Gohan after he runs into him in episode 18.
** There are several in the Bardock special, aimed at the later villians and the GT saga, when Bardock sees into the future as he is dying.
--->'''Bardock:''' But wait...wait, there's more. He fights...a giant green bug...man. And then a giant...pink...manchild. Oh no, it's dark again...where is...\\
'''Para Para Brothers:''' *rapping and dancing*\\
'''Bardock:''' ...and I now welcome the sweet embrace of death...
** Speaking of GT, in Episode 20, when Vegeta introduces himself, the "Step into the Grand Tour!" rap from Funimation's GT dub (prior to the season boxsets) plays. He quickly says "Oh the fuck with this!" and attacks Recoome.
** Also from Episode 20...
--->'''Vegeta:''' Wrestling's fake.\\
'''Crowd:''' *boos him*
** In the Lord Slug special
--->'''Dr Briefs:''' [[{{Armageddon}} Quick, get me Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi, and Aerosmith]]!\\
'''Oolong:''' [[{{Armageddon}} What about Ben Affleck]]?\\
'''Dr Briefs:''' (sharply) What about ''bacon''? (Remember that Oolong is a talking pig)
** In the ''Episode of Bardock'' special, Bardock himself utters this [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall towards his own plot line]]!
--> '''Bardock''': [[EarthAllAlong I'm in the f*cking past]]. Of all the '''[[PunctuatedPounding stupid]]''' '''[[PunctuatedPounding asinine]]''' '''[[JumpedTheShark shark-jumping bullshit]]'''!
** Also in the ''Episode of Bardock'', Lord Chilled and his minions, disguised as the Space Police, say they are there to catch evil space criminals and other ne'er do wells. What does Dre say?
--> '''Dre''': I can assure you we have already exiled [[ChrisBrown Chris of the clan Brown]] from our planet.
* TakeOffYourClothes: Vegeta to Krillin and Gohan in Episode 24.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Now both of you... ''strip.''\\
'''Krillin:''' Uuuuuhh...\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[BaitAndSwitch I've got body armor for you.]]\\
'''Krillin:''' ''Less'' awkward.
** Apparently, King Yemma has been having newly dead arrivals remove their clothes for laughs. In episode 28:
---> '''King Yemma:''' Next! Strip. (stamp.) Next! Strip. (stamp.) Next! Strip. (zipping sound, King Yemma leans forward.) Nice!\\
'''Recoome:''' [[ThirdPersonPerson Recoome]] thanks you.
* TakingYouWithMe: Lord Slug to Goku in ''Lord Slug Abridged''.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted, as Jaice found out the hard way.
* TalkingToHimself: Even though the cast is significantly larger than most Abridged Series, multiple performance is still unavoidable (Lanipator in particular, who voices Krillin, Piccolo, ''and'' Vegeta).
** Lampshaded at Youmacon 2009, where Lani intros himself as playing Chris Sabat.
* TalkLikeAPirate: On King Kai's planet, Bojack is given a pirate accent, it's currently unknown if this will stick.
* TalkToTheFist: Jeice repeatedly gets interrupted by being punched by Goku in Episode 21.
* TechnologyLevels: Unknown where Earth is, but Freeza is seen using Wikipedia, [[SpaceX Space]]Twitter, and Space Skype.
** Vegeta watches Space Hulu.
*** Figures.
* TemporalParadox: When Trunks asks Goku to [[GrandfatherParadox keep his birth a secret from his parents or else he might not exist in the future]]. Goku who's an IdiotHero, points out the TemporalParadox.
--->'''Goku:''' Wait, but if you don't exist; then you don't come back in time. But then you could never tell me. Which means I never know. [[StableTimeLoop You'd still be born]] and... Why does everything smell like copper?
* TemptingFate:
--> '''Krillin:''' It's been tough, but now we'll never have to see that rotten Saiyan ever again! ''[Vegeta crashes to Earth]'' ...''Alive'' again. We'll never have to see him ''alive'' again. That's what I meant.
--> '''Vegeta:''' They've broken my body... I've failed in my mission to find the Dragon Balls... I even lost my tail... but at least it can't get any worse... from here... \\
'''[[spoiler:Ghost Nappa]]:''' Vegeeeeta...
** Earlier:
--->'''Krillin:''' Ow! This can't possibly get any worse.\\
'''Popo:''' Hi!\\
'''Krillin:''' AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! ''(Krillin Owned Count: 4)''
** Then later:
---> '''Goku:''' Oh well, we won't need [all four senzu beans] on Namek!
** Still later:
--->'''Ginyu:''' This is RIDICULOUS! But at least I'm not trapped in some useless body.\\
''(Vegeta warps behind him)''\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Give me a minute.]]\\
''(Beatdown ensues)''
** And then...
--->'''Dende:''' "I'm your white mage. And nobody fucks with ''the white mage''." [[ShootTheMedicFirst *Freeza'd*]]
*** [[spoiler: Subverted, since Dende gets revived by Shenron and then, just to prove his earlier point and screw over Freeza, wishes everyone on Namek except Goku and Freeza to Earth. Nobody fucks with "the white mage", indeed.]]
** Arguably, Freeza [[TemptingFate tests his limits]] as well.
--->'''Freeza:''' [[SmiteMeOMightySmiter If I'm so evil, then let God strike me where I stand.]] ([[BoltOfDivineRetribution cue bolt of lightning]]... [[SubvertedTrope which]] [[NoSell doesn't harm Freeza at all]]) [[BlasphemousBoast Ha, nice try, jackass! Next time, give it your A-game!]]
*** One could argue that said "A-game" came in the form of an enraged Super Saiyan and a couple of wayward Destructo-Disks. God being God and all, the lightning strike was probably just a final warning of what was to come.
** On Namek, Nail mentions that he wants something exciting to happen and doesn’t care what it is. It cannot be denied that an invasion from Freeza does make things less boring.
** In Episode 32, Bulma and Vegeta both seem rather good at this.
--->'''Bulma:''' He's probably running out of fuel soon so God knows if he'll ever make it back here!\\
'''Vegeta:''' (crashes to Earth) I'M BACK, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES]]!\\
Then later...\\
'''Vegeta:''' The only thing I hate more than weaklings is the color pink! (Screams)
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: You wouldn't even think about it until after the reveal, but [[spoiler: Dodoria is pink]].
** And [[spoiler: looks like she has lipstick and eyeshadow on. Not to mention her going nuts whenever someone calls her fat.]]
* ThatCameOutWrong: From episode 23:
-->'''Ginyu:''' First off, we have to [[DoubleEntendre touch on Freeza's balls]].\\
'''Jeice:''' Uhhh, sir...\\
'''Ginyu:''' Yes, yes, realized the moment I said it...
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: Krillin's response to Burta's remark about being "the fastest in the universe."
* ThemeNaming: Parodied in Episode 25. In DBZ canon, most characters from a certain family, race or faction are all theme-named. In particular, the Saiyan race are all named after vegetables (which "Vegeta" itself is short for), so the "smartass" Saiyan who informs King Vegeta of Freeza's plans is named "Butaraga"[[note]]Rutabaga[[/note]].
** The [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans]] in ''Episode of Bardock'' are all named after rappers.
* ThemeTuneCameo: In Episode 17, Bulma is humming ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4O9U1it44I Romantic Ageru Yo]]'', from the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', when Krillin arrives with the Dragon Ball he got from Super Kami Guru.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Happens often, but a memorable moment is after Popo knocks Krillin off Kami's lookout ([[RunningGag Krillin Owned Count: 3]])
-->'''Popo:''' Enjoy the climb back up, bitch!
** Vegeta seems to be fond of this trope:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after stealing Freeza's Dragon Balls] Later, bitches.
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after stealing a Capsule Corp. spaceship] Sayonara, bitches!
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after returning to Earth] I'm back, bitches!
** Taken to the extreme with Krillin's "bitch rant" at Bulma.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
-->'''Gohan:''' We have about 10 minutes before Vegeta finds out I stole this. *holds out a Dragonball*
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] as Piccolo insists this while Tenshinhan fights Nappa... despite the former's desperate pleas for help.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Even while Nappa and Vegeta mock Krillin, Nappa points out that, "at least you've proven that ''your'' Raditz is still stronger than ''our'' Raditz."
** A literal example between Vegeta and Guldo (the green guy in the Ginyu force) in which Vegeta throws dog treats at Guldo [[JerkAss for his own amusement]].
** After learning that in Future Trunks' timeline, Yamcha commits suicide due to learning that Bulma was pregnant with Vegeta's child, Goku tells Yamcha that he's his friend.
* TimeTravel: In "Episode of Bardock", Bardock gets sent back to planet Vegeta, extremely far in the past, though he takes a while to figure this out.
* TitleDrop: Lampshaded and called out in the ''Christmas Tree of Might''.
** Episode 29's title, "Freezer Burn", gets dropped as well.
* TooDumbToLive: Freeza's honest view of Goku and all the nonsensical stuff he spouts out.
-->'''Freeza:''' N-no, that was a rhetorical question.\\
'''Goku:''' And I gave you a rhetorical answer.\\
'''Freeza:''' Good Lord, I traded in Vegeta for this.
** And then:
--->'''Goku:''' Wow, that was a close one. I was almost out of the frying pan and into the...lava.\\
'''Freeza:''' How do you ''function''?
** Later still:
--->'''Freeza:''' I just love how easy it is to get away with this s*** with you people. I mean I want to transform and you sit there and let me; I want to blow up the planet and ''you sit there and let me''; I want to reach 100% power and [[AC:''YOU JUST SIT THERE AND LET ME!'']].
** This is Bardock's assessment of the Kannasans. Just because they're psychic doesn't mean they're smart, a theory which turns out to hold water. Though they managed to repopulate later, so maybe they weren't as dumb as they appeared.
** Let's not forget about Nappa.
--->'''Nappa:''' [after Krillin throws a Destructo Disk at him] Ooh, a Frisbee, Vegeta!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Nappa, no! It's a trick!\\
'''Nappa:''' But Vegeta, tricks are for kids.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ([[Beat]]) You know what, on second thought, catch it. Catch it with your teeth.
* TooFunnyToBeEvil: NAPPA.
* TookALevelInBadass: Played straight and lampshaded with Goku, Gohan and the 'Z Warriors' in season 1. And then subverted in season 2:
-->'''Guru:''' ''[about Krillin]'' I see something within this young man: strength yet untapped, power yet unleashed. Now hold still, as I ''unleash the valley of strength '''hidden deep within!''''' ''[nimbus of lights surround Krillin]'' There. I have unlocked your hidden potential.\\
'''Krillin:''' Huh... I don't feel that different.\\
'''Guru:''' [[TheKrillin It wasn't that much]].\\
'''Krillin:''' Huh. So this is my full potential?\\
'''Guru:''' Yes.\\
'''Krillin:''' So it's...\\
'''Guru:''' ...all downhill from here.\\
'''Krillin:''' Like Yamcha.\\
'''Guru:''' I do not know what this Yamcha is, but it sounds disappointing.
* TookALevelInDumbass: Goku's getting [[IdiotHero stupider]] with every episode. [[RuleOfFunny And it's hilarious]].
* TookALevelInJerkAss: Krillin in season 2. He never bothers to learn Dende's name and berates him for going on about his family's death (though since he was resurrected before and naturally knows anyone can be brought back but its still pretty cruel). He also keeps being more cowardly and refusing to fight. Possibly that this may just be a result of everyone being a dick to him but its hard to feel bad for him compared to season 1.
* TooSoon: Another running gag involving Krillin where anytime Krillin says something "offensive" on the heels of a tragedy -- or in the case of comparing the ruined time city to New Orleans, making reference to a tragic event that shouldn't be mocked (Hurricane Katrina), a character yells, "Krillin! Too soon!"
* TrainingFromHell: Played straight ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmTTweQDmrI though hilariously]]) with Piccolo. Subverted with King Kai. And then there's the TrainingMontage. Taken to its literal extreme with Mr. Popo. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJDa3irhkoI Check out 2:45 for a sample.]]
-->'''Gohan:''' So, how was your training, Krillin?\\
[Krillin freezes as he hears Popo's mocking laughter in his head]\\
'''Krillin:''' ''[weeping]'' [[FightClub First rule of Popo's training! Do not talk about Popo's training!]]\\
'''Gohan:''' Why are you crying?\\
'''Krillin:''' SECOND RULE OF POPO'S TRAINING!
** Both Gohan and Dr. Briefs try to deconstruct the idea of TrainingFromHell by pointing out the longterm downsides, like horrible muscle degeneration, but both are ignored by their listeners, [[{{Jerkass}} Piccolo]] and [[IdiotHero Goku.]]
** A quick flashback to Gohan's training shows him on the run from a Tyrannosaur!
* TrainingMontage: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V06DISKajss This AMV]] sums up the training leading up to Vegeta and Nappa's landing. And it. Is. ''awesome''.
* TranquilFury: How Vegeta responds to having his tail cut off.
--> '''Vegeta:''' [Calmly] You know... I thought I'd be angrier, what with the utter humiliation and loss of my tail... Or maybe I'm just so ''unbelievably'' enraged that I've come full circle. Oh well! Either way it's time to put an end to this.
** Then he calmly unburdens his shame of his defeat on Earth to Cui before blowing him straight to hell. It's starting to look like the only thing scarier than a raging Vegeta is a mellow one. And, of course, Mr. Popo.
---> "God, I love therapy."
** And used twice when his attempt to explain his superiority fall flat due to stupid remarks from Goku.
---> '''Vegeta:''' I'm going to start beating you now. I don't know when I'll stop.
** [Later, as he's about to crush Goku's body like a grape]
---> '''Vegeta:''' I'm going to enjoy this ''far'' more than I should.
** Also Bulma's answer to Krillin's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** And Freeza can do it too, though the tranquility isn't always stable.
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh, I'm sorry, I'm usually more composed. I'm just a little bit ''absolutely livid''.
** In Episode 30, it actually makes (Super Saiyan) Goku temporarily smarter.
--->'''Goku:''' Gohan, take Piccolo, find Bulma, get back to the ship.\\
'''Gohan:''' But what about you?\\
'''Goku:''' If Piccolo ''dies'' then all of this was ''pointless!'' Take him, get to the ship, and get out of here!\\
'''Gohan:''' [[DumbassHasAPoint This is surprisingly well thought-out for you.]]\\
'''Goku:''' [[SuppressedRage ...Gohan? Where should you be right now?]]\\
'''Gohan:''' The ship?\\
'''Goku:''' '''THE SHIP!!!'''\\
'''Gohan:''' [[ShuttingUpNow Okay..!!]]
** King Cold [[spoiler:had a rather jovial tone of voice after Freeza was killed. When Trunks says he thought Cold would be more pissed, Cold says he is, "Blindingly so".]]
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Played with. [[spoiler:Vegeta and Freeza's first transformations happen in seconds, with our heroes too shocked to react. Nail distracts Piccolo during Freeza's second one. He only gets away with his third one because Krillin used up too much power shooting Vegeta to make a Kienzan when Gohan asks him why he doesn't do just that.]] Gloriously lampshaded by Freeza when fighting Super Saiyan Goku.
** Goku himself lampshades this in ''Revenge of Cooler'', wondering why he allows the villains to do this at all. Although, like Freeza's first transformation, Cooler's transformation does happen pretty fast as well.
* TrappedInVillainy: It gives us a fairly strong hint that [[TheDragon Zarbon]] and at least some of Freeza's other men are this.
-->'''Freeza:''' You know, Zarbon, I'm starting to think my people don't understand what I pay them for.\\
'''Zarbon:''' You don't pay us-\\
'''Freeza:''' -allow them to live for.
* TropeName:
-->'''Nappa:''' Hilariously derailing one-liner.
* TryNotToDie: When Krillin goes out to get the Namekian Dragon Balls' password, Vegeta offers him this encouragement.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Try not to get yourself killed out there, God forbid you make me happy.
* TwistEnding: In ''Lord Slug Abridged'', [[spoiler: Guru is Lord Slug's EvilTwin]].
* TheUnintelligible: Lord Slug is this prior to the granting of his wish.
** During an [=FAQ=] special, Bubbles answered the question of how the episodes were scheduled. Yes, the monkey. And no, they didn't have subtitles this time.
* TheWorfEffect: Like, every Z warrior except Goku and Gohan. Then again, justified due to the series it's based on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:U]]
* UnexplainedRecovery: The entire Kanassian species miraculously repopulated. After being exterminated and eaten by giant monkeys.
* TheUnpronouncable: Nobody seems to be able to pronounce the Japanese name for Piccolo's "Speical Beam Cannon[[labelnote:*]](Makankosappo)[[/labelnote]]", including Piccolo himself.
-->"''Makansa... Makakasappa... Mekasappaaah'', Oh to hell with it. ''Special Beam Cannon!''"
** "''Makansapparappaka!!''"
** Goku: "So are you just stealing Krillin's attacks now or should I look out for the Tri-Beam... or the Garlic Gun... or the Makankapotamus".
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Krillin initially assumes Freeza is a woman.
-->"That thing's a GUY!?!?!"
** And then in episode 15, we get an inversion from [[spoiler:Dodoria]].
* UnstoppableRage: Vegeta in episode 18. It even drives him temporarily ''insane'', until Gohan powering up snaps him out of it.
** Also, just like in the show Gohan is known for these in general - only now they're even more exaggerated.
* UnusualEuphemism
-->'''Goku:''' Holy black on a Popo!
* UselessSuperpowers: The ability to see the future is often less than productive.
--> '''Bardock:''' Useless-ass psychic powers! *take giant energy beam to the face.*
[[/folder]]

[[folder:V]]
* ViewersAreGeniuses: Some of the jokes are quite subtle and you'd really have to be in the know to get them.
** The obscurity of some jokes was actually lampshaded at one point.
--->'''Vegeta:''' Oh God damn it Nappa, nobody's going to get that.
--->'''Tien:''' As a matter of fact, I did.
* VillainousBreakdown: As of Episode 24, Freeza finally hit his when Nail tells him that while he spent an hour flying to the middle of nowhere and then spent a further fifteen minutes ripping his arm off, Dende has given the earthlings the password to the Dragonballs, shattering his polite and mocking facade for good.
-->'''Freeza:''' I WILL ''F***ING MURDER'' YOU!
-->'''Nail:''' Whatever.
** He gets a second one immediately after when he realizes that his entire army, including his most elite fighting force, have been bested by a 26-year-old dwarf, a five year old half-breed (not present: his Saiyan father, who wiped four of the five) and a Saiyan prince (the last of which actually killed them all) he had written off as beneath his notice. Made for a bitchin' day.
** Freeza Lampshades this in episode 25;
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh, I'm sorry. I'm usually far more composed. I'm just a little bit ''absolutely livid''.
** Then there's his entire fight with [[IdiotHero Goku]]. That seriously took a toll on Freeza's patience.
--->'''Freeza:''' That's stupid! You're stupid! Stop being stupid!
** And it just keeps going downhill after Goku becomes Super Saiyan:
--->'''Freeza:''' You think now that you're this . . . so-called 'Super' Saiyan that you're better than me--''Lord Freeza?!'' ''WELL YOU'RE NOT!!'' I own you! I own your planet! I own ''this'' planet! In fact . . . '''[[EarthShatteringKaboom F**K THIS PLANET!!!]]'''
** And even later:
--->'''Freeza:''' '''SMASH MONKEY! SMASH MONKEY!!'''
** All of the above leads to some FridgeBrilliance, as after Dodoria's death, Freiza no longer had anyone to get angry for him.
** Freeza goes through ''another'' breakdown when he sees Future Trunks go Super Saiyan.
* VillainousBSOD: Freeza ''literally'' has one when Future Trunks cuts him in half, showing an actual Windows BSOD, then the screen itself splits as he does.
* VillainProtagonist: Let's not kid ourselves, Vegeta is pretty much the protagonist for the first half of season 2. And [[CardCarryingVillain he's most definitely a villain.]] For the moment.
* VillainyDiscretionShot: Vegeta slaughters an entire Namekian village while the opening credits play.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: "'''''I AM CHAMPION CHRISTMAS!!!'''''"
* VoicesAreMental: Rather impressively averted. Goku and Ginyu, rather than keeping their own voices when they switch bodies, are stuck with each other's voices, but still ''talk'' like themselves. Other users of this trope should learn from them.
** Goku still ''thinks'' in his own voice though, which also makes sense.
* VolleyingInsults: Nail and Vegeta do this to each other in episode 18.
** A little between Freeza and Vegeta in Episode 25:
--->'''Freeza:''' I'm impressed, Vegeta. When did you graduate from Pull-Ups?\\
'''Vegeta:''' About the same time you got off the rag.
** Goku and Freeza do this in Episode 30:
--->'''Freeza:''' You're nothing but an overgrown monkey!\\
'''Goku:''' And you're nothing but an overgrown that thing Chi-Chi keeps in her drawer!
** Bulma and Vegeta in episode 34, as part of their BelligerentSexualTension. They even jumped straight to do the deed after almost 5 minutes of bickering. To put a short part:
--->'''Bulma:''' Don't you call me stupid!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Well, then how about ''bitch''!?\\
'''Bulma:''' Arrogant dick!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Spoiled sow!\\
'''Bulma:''' F*ck you!\\
'''Vegeta:''' F*ck you!\\
'''Bulma:''' ''F*ck you''!!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''F*CK''! '''YOU'''!
** Then they do.
* VomitDiscretionShot: Played straight, then immediately averted in episode 28. When Goku spins Freeza around holding him by his tail, Freeza doesn't make it a secret that he's going to puke. We don't get to see the actual moment... but we get to see, seconds later, [[ButtMonkey Krillin]] getting hit by, well, the unavoidable byproduct, projected at high speed across Namek. It's just a couple frames, before it zooms out to the whole planet and we get an update to the [[RunningGag Krillin Owned Count]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:W]]
* WarriorTherapist: Nappa claims that he majored in Child Psychology (WITH A MINOR IN PAIN!) and goes on about the values of healthy communication... right before pounding the crap out of the guy he was talking about (Tenshinhan) because they had interrupted him while he was talking to Vegeta.
** On a less literal note, Vegeta becomes something like this, though only to himself. During his finale of Episode 10 he remarks about the possible reason behind his TranquilFury, and later on, after revealing the depths of his humiliation to Cui and then blowing him up to ensure that he would never tell anyone of it, Vegeta says that he loves therapy, and later on deliberately represses the memory of Dodoria's revelations. Considering that his anger seemed to have broke in Episode 18, his self-therapy doesn't really seem to be working very well.
* WaxingLyrical: Vegeta occasionally quotes lyrics from "You're the Best Around"
* WeCanRuleTogether
-->[[spoiler:'''Dodoria''']]: You and I, we can team up against Freeza! Rule the universe...''as husband and wife''.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''Repressing in 5!...4!...3!...2!...1!'' *BAM* ...And repressed.
** Zarbon later tries this (minus the proposal). Vegeta tells him [[CallBack he's already heard it]].
* WeHaveReserves:
-->''(whilst watching the Namekian warriors destroy Freeza's forces)''\\
'''Dodoria:''' ...Kinda killing our guys.\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh, we have more of those things back at the ship. It's not like we're losing anything valuable.
** Lord Slug goes through soldiers like copy paper.
* WellThisIsNotThatTrope: Played straight at the beginning of the Bardock special:
-->'''Narrator:''' Long ago, on a planet long forgotten by time, a young hero was born; a righteous Saiyan warrior who would bring peace to the galaxy. This... is ''not'' his story.
* WhamEpisode: Episode 24.
** Also Episode 31. In short summary, [[spoiler: Marron is actually an agent of the States' Fraud Bureau who put on an act to get Krillin to reveal his insurance fraud. Also, '''Popo kills Garlic Jr. before he got to do anything along with his minions''']]. Looks like we're headed straight into the Androids and Cell Saga earlier than expected.
* WhamLine: Episode 17:
-->'''Zarbon:''' [[spoiler: Well, I need to call my girlfriend.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [=LittleKuriboh=] auditioned for ''Ginyu'' originally. He ended up being cast as Freeza for the sole reason that his Freeza voice was so damn good.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: Goku launching his ship by pressing the exact same button Dr. Briefs told him ''[[ShmuckBait not]]'' to press.
--> Just don't press the '''start''' button. [slowly] The '''start''' button. ''Don't'' press... [[RuleOfThree the]] '''[[RuleOfThree start]]''' [[RuleOfThree button]].
* {{Whatever}}: Nail and Dende's response to being threatened with death by Freeza and Vegeta.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Minor one: Since in [[DeathByAdaptation this version]] Vegeta does kill off Captain Ginyu, why doesn't he show up at King Kai's planet with the other Ginyus? Unless he's still a frog in the afterlife of course.
** A lampshaded case is the wish to bring back everyone killed by Freeza and his men. Vegeta gleefully points out that this leaves out the villagers he killed.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[SuperFriends "We could use whales!]] [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} WHAAAALES!"]] [[BrickJoke 3 episodes later]], Nappa kills them.
-->'''Nappa:''' I sank their battleship! And their ''whales''.\\
'''Aquaman:''' [[BigNo Nooooooooooooo!]]
* WhatWouldXDo:
** Goku contemplates what Yamcha would do while fighting with Vegeta. Cut to a flashback of his unceremonious death. He moves up to Tien and uses the solar flare.
** Gohan tries to use his father as such an example. Cut to a flashback of "[[ParentalNeglect Bye, son!]]"
* WhosLaughingNow: Guldo, a few minutes before he's brutally murdered.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: As in the original series, Bulma makes this suggestion when Goku tells the group about the androids. Only Vegeta just shoots it down instantly, wanting the challenge.
* WorfBarrage: After a spiriting pep talk from Vegeta (who's in the afterlife), Goku fires up his kaioken and unleashes a devastating Kamehameha beam against Freeza, culminating in a massive explosion that looks like it could be felt for hundreds of miles. When the dust settles, Freeza is shown to have withstood the attack with some effort, but is mostly unscathed.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Gohan proposes such scientific strategies such as knocking down Ape Vegeta due to his weight ratio and escaping Dodoria due to his size and mass when it should be clear he is in the fantasy world of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.
** Goku even thought Vegeta's oozaru form would be slowed down due to the increased mass, and was in for a rude awakening when that wasn't the case.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Y]]
* YankTheDogsChain: Team Four Star's fake Episode 2.
-->'''Vegeta:''' You got Vegetowned!
** Also, the end of [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas Tree of Might]]. Krillin gets a girlfriend, [[BrainlessBeauty Marron from filler]], but doesn't get to keep her as she's not canon.
** Gohan got books. He also got Icarus, but lost him for the same reason. Then he got him back for the Lord Slug movie. [[spoiler:Then Icarus gets eaten.]] And Icarus is back ''again'' for the upcoming Revenge of Cooler movie. Goku calls him emergency food.
* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: Parodied at the end of the Christmas Tree of Might special. [[spoiler: Ghost Nappa]] warns Vegeta that he will be visited by three ghosts. [[spoiler:They're all Ghost Nappa.]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: Said by Vegeta when his explosive technique didn't kill the heroes.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Invoked by Goku (of all people) against Freeza.
-->'''Goku:''' Do you know what a minute is?
-->'''Freeza:''' What? Of course I do.
-->'''Goku:''' I don't think you do.
* YouKilledMyFather: Dende gets a little of this when he refuses to heal a dying Vegeta because Vegeta helped annihilate Dende's entire species.
-->'''Dende:''' Oh, I'm sorry. I can't hear you over the blood of my people on your hands.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Oh no, do NOT be that guy right now.
-->'''Dende:''' Oh, I'm going to be that guy right now.
** Subverted, though, in that Dende is in fact convinced to do it, if only because Freeza is busy transforming into his most powerful form and Vegeta needed the power boost from almost dying to even have a hope of matching him.
--->'''Piccolo:''' Now go heal Vegeta.\\
'''Dende:''' Why would I do that?\\
''(Freeza shown mid transformation)''\\
'''Piccolo:''' Because that.\\
'''Dende:''' Oh yeah, that's happening right now.
* YourMom: Several. For instance, an offscreen extra does one toward Bardock when he tries to warn everyone that Freeza's going to blow up the planet.
-->'''Bardock:''' We need to raise an army!\\
'''Random Female Saiyan:''' YourMom's an army!
** From the same episode as the second Cui/Vegeta exchange:
--->'''Freeza Goon A:''' "Damn man, you couldn't hit the broad side of a space-barn!"\\
'''Freeza Goon B:''' "Yeah well that's only because I'm too busy hitting the broad side of YourMom!" *gets pwned by Gohan and Krillin*
** Vegeta to Cui:
--->'''Cui:''' Where are you off to in such a hurry?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Off to plow your mother.\\
'''Cui:''' Hah! Shows what you know, Vegeta! We reproduce asexually.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Gross. Out of my way.
** Then appears as a CallBack in the next episode:
--->'''Cui:''' I could have got here sooner, but I stopped on the way to ''plow your mother''!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ...[[InsultBackfire My mother's dead]].\\
'''Cui:''' [[CrossesTheLineTwice I know.]]
** A similar exchange happens between Vegeta and Final Form Freeza in episode 27. It's much less funny this time.
--->'''Freeza:''' Now that we're done here, its time to send you crying home to mommy.
--->'''Vegeta:''' (''Badly wounded'') My mother's... dead...
--->'''Freeza:''' I know.
* YouWillBeAssimilated: What Mr. Popo did to Blue Popo.
** Add [[spoiler: Garlic Jr. and presumably, his minions]] to the tally.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:N]]
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Happens to Gohan while fighting Recoome. Gohan starts by giving Recoome a bit of a verbal beatdown as the music starts to swell. Then he makes a desperate charge and... gets his neck snapped with one kick.
** [[spoiler:Mr. Popo kills Garlic Jr. before he can even do anything]].
* NervousWreck: This happens to Krillin. He cannot shut up when he's scared.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when Yamcha freaks out in episode 32:
-->'''Krillin''': Y'know, if he were't doing it... I would.
* NestedMouths: Third-form Freeza whips out one of these as a reference to ''Franchise/{{Alien}}''.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Played with with Freeza, who keeps a tally of heroic speeches:
-->'''Namekian Warrior:''' We're here to stop this senseless slaughter of our people. \\
'''Freeza:''' 92 \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' This has gone on for too long. And now, you're going to pay. \\
'''Freeza:''' 355 \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' We are... we... what are you-- \\
'''Freeza:''' No, go on. Continue. Don't mind me. \\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' And... we are the ones who will stop you. \\
'''Freeza:''' Ooh, wow. 419.\\
'''Namekian Warrior:''' Oh yeah? Well... we're going to... f**k your face!\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh my. ''Twelve''.
** A short while later:
--->'''Namekian Elder:''' That... that wasn't part of the deal!\\
'''Freeza:''' Aaaand 500! Dodoria, show 'em what they've won!
** Though Goku did find one he didn't hear: "Imma deck you in the schnoz!"
*** And when Goku becomes a Super Saiyan he stumps Freeza once more: "I'm going to break you..." crushes Freeza's hand "...like a Kit-Kat bar!"
** Used ''almost'' verbatim in this exchange, after Trunks asks Freeza why he has "spare parts" coming out of him:
--> '''Freeza:''' Impudent little... These are not spare parts! What you are looking at is the ultimate culmination of science and nature!
--> '''Trunks:''' [[SarcasmMode Oh, wow! I've... never seen that before.]]
* NeverSayDie: Spoofed.
-->'''Reporter:''' Oh my God! [[ShoutOut They blew up]] [[CutAndPasteTranslation the cargo robot]]... And the cargo was ''people!''
* NeverSayThatAgain:
-->'''Krillin and Piccolo:''' ''[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kage Bunshin no Jutsu]]''! ''[Both make three copies of themselves]''\\
'''Nappa:''' Vegeta! I can't... ''[smiles]'' [[{{Catchphrase}} believe it]].\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''[offscreen, in disgust]'' ''Uuuuuugggh.''
* NeverTrustATrailer: You see all that cool stuff in the Episode 31 intro? [[spoiler:[[AbortedArc You're not getting any of it thanks to Mr. Popo]]]].
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Parodied. Vegeta reveals to Dodoria that after his trip to Earth, he can now sense energy sources and doesn't need a scouter. When Dodoria asks him how he learned how to do that, Vegeta is just as clueless.
** And again in Episode 21 when Goku reads Krillin's mind. His explanation [[spoiler: [[CallBack muffin button]]]] makes as much sense as the canonical explanation [[spoiler: just something that happens while he's training at high gravity.]]
* NoDeadBodyPoops: As Bardock learns upon having the corpses of his friends piled atop him, they do.
-->'''Bardock:''' [[FamilyGuy It's in my Dodoria wounds!]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Zarbon on Vegeta after his transformation.
* NoIndoorVoice: Vegeta spends about 80% of his screentime screaming at the top of his lungs. Lanipator lampshades it in one blooper where after recording one such outburst, he drops character to give his larynx a break and asks why he had to be cast as the loudest, raspiest voiced character in the whole show.
** The entire Kanassan race seem to be like this.
--->"'''I CAN SEE THE FUTUUURE!!!'''"
* NonSequiturThud: Occasionally happens to characters who've had thier asses handed to them.
--> '''Krillin:''' (After been kicked by Recoome, in a high pitch) Hello Gohan, have you done your homework? Cause if you don't Chi-chi will '''kick''' my ass!
** Goku delivers one after being repeatedly dunked underwater while fighting Freeza.
--->'''Goku:''' Grandpa, I don't want any more baths today. I'm clean now.
** And Freeza [[spoiler: after being [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisected by his own attack]]]]
--->'''Freeza:''' Daddy, I don't want to be on Namek anymore.
* NoodleIncident: The jockstrap incident.
** When Vegeta is figuring where Ginyu hid the Namekian Dragonballs:
--->'''Vegeta:''' If it's anything like that jockstrap incident, Ginyu probably buried them somewhere around here.
** Freeza mentions it in episode twenty-seven.
--->'''Freeza:''' (thinking) This has been one giant mess. It's just like that jockstrap incident, only now I don't have Ginyu around to dig the holes.
** Mentioned again in episode 32 by King Cold, when he's trying to decide where to land their spaceship.
---> '''Freeza:''' Daddy, we can park anywhere we want.
---> '''King Cold:''' Now son, if this is anything like that jock strap incident, we don't want to get boxed in!
* NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat: Played with in ''Revenge of Cooler'' after Goku took a blast, fell in the river and off a waterfall.
-->'''Cooler:''' So. Who thinks he's dead?
-->'''Sauza:''' Dead.
-->'''[[TheUnintelligible Neiz]]:''' Krii!
-->'''Doore:''' That boy's dead as mutton.
-->'''Cooler:''' [[AvertedTrope Too bad, I sign your paychecks.]] [[GenreSavvy Search the forest.]]
-->'''Sauza:''' [[GratuitousFrench Qu'est-ce que]] [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]].
* NoPartyLikeADonnerParty: How Dende seems to hint at how the Eldest Namek helped his entire race through a great drought that struck Namek...
* NoSell:
** "[[MemeticMutation The only thing Recoome sells]] ''[[JohnCena is merchandise]]!''" (Including a Recoome vibrator, apparently.)
** Freeza pulls this on Goku a few times.
---> '''Freeza:''' No, seriously, Kai-oh-what?\\
'''Goku:''' Kai-[[OhCrap oh-crap]].\\
'''Freeza:''' Thought so.
** He also No Sells a BoltOfDivineRetribution. And mocks God for the lack of effort.
** [[spoiler: And Super Saiyan Goku turns the tables on Freeza.]]
** In ''Revenge of Cooler'', Sauza punches Goku in the face... and much to Sauza's complete bewilderment, Goku ''completely ignores him'' while he continues chatting with Cooler, despite Sauza's fist against the side of his face. Goku does it to Cooler, too, after turning into a Super Saiyan.
* NoSympathy: What Gohan actually blames Goku for isn't his fault: abandoning Gohan with Piccolo for a year (Piccolo kidnapped him after Goku died trying to rescue him), and sending him to space (Gohan himself insisted on going, Goku himself was unable to do so due to his injures, and Goku was unable even to give his opinion on Gohan's choice due to being [[ItMakesSenseInContext sedated with Clorox after screaming in terror at seeing Mr Popo]]).
* NotCompletelyUseless: See CallingYourAttacks above.
* NotSoDifferent: Both Bardock and Chilled can't stand the [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans']] singing, and use the exact same words to say so.
* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: Said word-for-word by Zarbon after [[MistakenForGay insinuating that Vegeta is gay]].
* NotWearingPants: "You'll have to speak up; I'm not wearing pants." Apparently Master Roshi's hearing is directly tied to his level of dress.
** This may be a ShoutOut to an old episode of ''TheSimpsons'', in which Homer gets out of the shower, answers the phone, and tells the person on the other end "You'll have to speak up; I'm wearing a towel."
* [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard The]] [[InteractiveNarrator Narrator]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Is A Cheating Bastard]]
--> '''Narrator:''' Many lives were lost, many lessons were learned, and I made out with a cool one hundred thou!\\
'''King Kai:''' You cheating [[CurseCutShort son of a—]]\\
'''Narrator:''' Can't hear you, don't care.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:O]]
* OedipusComplex: Subverted. [[spoiler: A drunk Bulma hits on Future!Trunks and when she realizes he's a mommy's boy, she offers to be his "mommy". Cue internal scream and him changing subjects at light speed.]]
* OffingTheMouth: Why King Vegeta killed his messenger Butarega. There's a flashback scene that shows King Vegeta (Vegeta's father) getting a message. When the messenger gives a MathematiciansAnswer to a question, King Vegeta promptly blasts the messenger, mumbling "Freakin' smartass" afterward.
-->'''Butarega:''' King Vegeta, I have urgent news!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' Speak, Butarega.\\
'''Butarega:''' Bardock has gone absolutely mad, Sire!\\
'''Bardock:''' FREEZA!!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' What's all the commotion about?\\
'''Butarega:''' He's been telling everyone that Freeza plans to destroy Vegeta!\\
'''King Vegeta:''' Wait, my son, [[{{Egopolis}} the planet]], or me?\\
'''Butarega:''' ...[[KillEmAll Yes]].\\
(Butarega is blasted by King Vegeta)\\
'''King Vegeta:''' [[OffingTheMouth Freakin' smartass]].
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The Ginyu Force being pwned out of King Kai's planet... [[spoiler: by KING KAI HIMSELF]].
* OhCrap:
-->'''Vegeta:''' (in the middle of a BeamOWar) This is the end, Kakarot. You don't stand a chance! I put all of my power into this attack. Now perish with the rest of your pathetic world!\\
'''Goku:''' Kaio-ken...\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[BigNo Nooo]]...\\
'''Goku:''' TIMES...\\
'''Vegeta:''' No, no, no...\\
'''Goku:''' FOUR!\\
'''Vegeta:''' No, no, no, ''nononono''--''[blasted backwards into the sky]'' '''[[AtomicFBomb FUU]][[CurseCutShort UUUUU]]''' ''[50 seconds later]'' '''[[SubvertedTrope UUUUCK!]]'''
** And a bit later...
--->'''Vegeta:''' Haha! There's nothing left now! Your last hope, and you missed! You're all dead, and there isn't a damn thing you can d--[[CombinedEnergyAttack what]] [[BrickJoke smells like deer?]]
** And further still:
--->'''Vegeta:''' ''[after cutting off Oozaru Gohan's tail]'' Ha ha, I did it! [[NothingCanStopUsNow I'm the best! Around! Nothing's ever gonna keep me down]]... ''[notices Gohan is falling right towards him]'' No-NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!
** And then in episode 18, when Guru senses five "incredibly flamboyant" high power levels heading straight for the surface of planet Namek, Vegeta immediately realizes who they are (the Ginyu Force) and starts panicking that they're all going to die.
** Even [[CloudCuckooLander Goku]] has one at the end of episode 22 when he realizes that he's had his body switched with the much weaker Captain Ginyu who just punched a hole in his own chest.
** Krillin gets a funny one when Ginyu arrives in Goku's body in episode 23.
--->'''Krillin:''' Goku, what's your favorite food?\\
'''Ginyu:''' Waldorf salad.\\
'''Krillin:''' See? Double baconator-oh sh*[[SoundEffectBleep bleep]]*t.
** Jeice gets one in episode 23 while fighting Vegeta.
--->'''Jeice:''' What the hell happened to you? You were NOT this strong when you fought Recoome!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''[hands him the Saiyan Handbook]'' Looks like you have some required reading to do.\\
'''Jeice:''' Alright, let's see here. Okay, full moon, lose your tail, stronger every time you... oh. Well I'm right f''[[[SoundEffectBleep bleep]]]''ked, aren't I?\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[PreMortemOneLiner Right in the downunder.]]
** Vegeta and Krillin at the end of Episode 24.
--->'''Vegeta:''' If it didn't grant me my wish, then I'm not immortal, and Freeza's going to... going to...\\
''[Vegeta stares, and Krillin follows his gaze to where Freeza is standing.]''\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh don't mind me. By all means, ''give me some ideas.''
** When Freeza transforms in Episode 25.
--->'''Gohan:''' [[CallBack Krillin, do you feel that?]]!\\
'''Krillin:''' [[CallBack I]] ''[[CallBack taste]]'' [[CallBack that]]!\\
'''Freeza:''' [After Transforming] All done, and judging by the expression on your face, so are you.
** Freeza causes more of these in Episode 26, when he transforms again and kills the WhiteMage, and Episode 27 when he pummels Vegeta. And then Goku shows up and deflects all of his attacks...
** Goku uses the Kaio-Ken attack on Freeza, prompting [[RunningGag "Kaio-what" before getting smacked in the face.]] Then Freeza immediately recovers and says "seriously, Kaio-what?" to Goku's shocked dismay.
--->'''Goku:''' Kai-OhCrap.
--->'''Freeza:''' Thought so.
** The favor is returned with Goku's mega SpiritBomb.
--->'''Freeza:''' [[EvilLaugh Hehehehe]]... eh? Oh, somehow I completely forgot about that.\\
''[Spirit Bomb absorbs Death Ball]''\\
'''Spirit Bomb:''' '''OMNOMNOM'''.\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh, my God!
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Lampshade hung in Episode 13:
-->'''Roshi:''' Why Bulma's?\\
'''Goku:''' Well I need a ship and Bulma's dad is a scientist.\\
'''Roshi:''' I'm not even going to begin to go into what's wrong with that. I just wish you good luck.
** Dr. Briefs seems to actually ''be'' one going by the events of Lord Slug; isolating the Gay gene and finding a meteor with his combination microscope/telescope. In addition to having built a spaceship that could go to Namek despite him being a member of an apparently non-spacefaring civilization, complete with artificial gravity chamber and a suitably long-range transmitter/receiver.
* OneLinerNameOneLiner: Inverted during TheStinger of episode 21:
-->'''Goku:''' ([[ItMakesSenseInContext during a conversation about the differences between tetanus and rabies]]) Silly Gohan, animals don't eat people; people eat animals! Silly Gohan.
* OneOfUs: Kaiser Neko is apparently a Troper. He doesn't like it when people misspell Freeza's name either. "Frieza" is the spelling for the [=FUNimation=] dub, whereas "Freeza" is the spelling for the abridged series.
* OneUpSampo: In episode 25, when Freeza impales Krillin, he starts to do it repeatedly. Eventually, the stabs start turning into 1 [=UPs=].
* OnlySaneMan: Vegeta, unfortunately for him. Gohan, Piccolo, Shenron the Dragon, and Nail are also pretty stable, though with some issues. Everyone else is generally off the deep end.
* OnTheNext: Subverted in Episode 13:
--> '''Narrator:''' A new evil has revealed its face. Who are these mysterious enemies, and do Gohan and Krillin stand a chance? The answer to these questions will be revealed... Right now! Zarbon, Dodoria, Freeza, and Oh my, no.
* TheOtherDarrin: Vegeta3986 replaces Lanipator as Raditz in ''the first episode''.
** And starting in the Bardock special, [=LittleKuriboh=] replaces Lani as Freeza (subtly implied when he starts off with Lanipator and coughs mid-line, switching voices when he starts again).
** This happened with Chi Chi's casting behind the scenes. The original plan was for Whiteash to handle the character, but she backed out due to life issues before Chi Chi's first appearance. Then Krisrix voiced her for the first season. Now she's been replaced by Hnilmik, a veteran of many popular flash animations, machinima, and adaptation projects as well as voicing Ms. Fortune in VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}. Pick your favorite.
** Because Vegeta3986 left the series, everyone he played in the series thus far has been replaced as of episode 24. Kami is now voiced by WeeklyTubeShow, and Lanipator has gone back to voicing Raditz (whenever he appears, anyway). This is also going to happen to Yamcha at some point too (if they ever give him another line before [[RunningGag cutting him off]]).
*** As of Episode 28, Yamcha is voiced by [[NullmetalAlchemist Faulerro]].
* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: "We here at Team Four Star do not condone child violence... We do, however, find it ''hilarious''."
* OverlyLongGag: Jeice getting repeatedly punched in the nose.
-->'''Goku:''' So... Are you going to ''dodge'' any of these?\\
'''Jeice:''' Oh, ''that's'' what the captai-'''''[WHACK]!'''''
* OverlyLongScream: Vegeta's scream can be heard by [[SerialEscalation Krillin and Gohan miles away, Goku in outer space, King Yemma in the afterlife, and Trunks]] ''twenty years in the future''.
** Played with by Krillin in episodes 29 and 30. His scream only lasts about a second, but he repeats it over and over until Freeza blows him up. Then everyone's teleported to Earth when Dende screws Freeza over, and in four months' time Porunga is convinced to just give them six wishes right off the bat. When Krillin is revived he is still screaming. Krillin has been screaming non-stop for FOUR MONTHS.
*** A straighter example occurred when Krillin, Gohan and Bulma landed on Namek only to learn Vegeta had arrived and that he possessed four of the Dragon Balls. The scream is implied to last for the entire opening sequence and definitely twenty seconds afterwards.
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: Guru refers to Dende as the third-strongest Namekian on Namek. At the time, Dende, Nail, and Guru were the only surviving Namekians on the planet (or anywhere, for that matter).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:P]]
* PardonMyKlingon: Literally [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon]]. Dende calls Freeza a p'taq in episode 22.
* ParrotExpowhat: Any time Goku uses the Kaio-ken, someone (usually Goku's opponent) inevitably responds with some variation of "Kaio-what?"
** Bardock even gets caught up with this when he sees a vision of the future where Goku's using the Kaio-ken. Right in the middle of the fight with Dodoria's goons.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: To use Kami's spaceship, activating ''anything'' merely requires you to say "Popo." Not because that's the password, but because the ship simply knows better than to refuse.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: After arriving on Earth, a dying Guru confesses that [[spoiler:he caused the Great Drought by drinking the entire Namekian water supply. He then used the Albino Namekians as scapegoats and had them exterminated. The Namekians are horrified that they killed thousands of their own race for no reason and when Guru doesn't die immediately they ''tear him to pieces''. Then Elder Mori ate him]].
* PhraseCatcher: Poor Gohan. So far he's only hearing it from Piccolo, with Nappa joining in once. ''"NEEEERD!"'' And in Episode 18, when he says "I need an adult", Vegeta, Krillin, and Guru respond '''I am an adult!'''
** "Krillin!" "What?" "TooSoon!"
** "Dammit, [=Goku/Kakkarot!=]"
** "Goddamnit, Nappa!"
* PoorCommunicationKills: A bunch of child-soldier refugees, whose planet was conquered and destroyed by Freeza don't listen to Krillin as he tries to explain he and Gohan aren't sent by Freeza. When even [[ButtMonkey Krillin]] proves too strong for them to kill, they still won't listen and commit mass suicide.
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: Mr. Popo's flying carpet gets 10,000 miles per soul- I mean gallon. 10,000 miles per gallon...
* PowerLevels: A ZigZaggingTrope with the infamous [[Memes/{{Anime}} "Over nine THOUSAAAAND!"]] line. First Vegeta read it as 1006, then told Nappa, [[CurbStompBattle who was being pummeled senselessly by Goku]], to wait a moment.
-->'''Vegeta:''' I had the scouter upside down. ''[calmly]'' It's over 9000. ''[breaks scouter]'' Rah.\\
'''Nappa:''' ''[lying, broken, on the ground]'' Why do you sound so ''bored''?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Because he's still not a threat.\\
'''Nappa:''' But--\\
'''Vegeta:''' To me.
** Gotta love how Nappa ''quotes his own line'':
--->'''Nappa:''' Hey Vegeta, "What does the scouter say about his power level?"
** And as shown in the RunningGag below, because Raditz is so weak (with a power level of 1200), he's become the basic unit of measure. According to Vegeta in an announcement video, the new Dragon Ball Abridged page has ''OVER 9 RADITZ'' of TeamFourStar power.
** Vegeta calls out the StrongAsTheyNeedToBe aspect of power levels in Episode 26 while Piccolo is fighting Freeza.
--->'''Vegeta:''' "Wait a damn minute, something's wrong here. Back on your planet the Namek could barely stand up to Nappa, yet here he is now taking on Freeza. In his ''second form''."\\
'''Gohan:''' "What do you think happened?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' "Well either Freeza hit me so hard I'm in a delusional coma, or..."\\
'''Gohan:''' "Or..?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' "Power levels are BULL****!"
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Zarbon: "I'MMA RAPEYA, BITCH!"
** Vegeta has another in Episode 23
---> '''Ginyu:''' At least I'm not stuck in some useless body.\\
'''Vegeta, appearing behind him:''' Give me a minute.
* PrecisionFStrike: What's the best thing to say when you're about to save the world with a Spirit Bomb?
-->'''Krillin:''' BOOYAH, MOTHER[[SoundEffectBleep ****]]ER!
** Freeza has the perfect response to the news of Dodoria's death.
--->'''Freeza:''' ''...the f[[SoundEffectBleep **]]k?!''
** ''Anytime'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes Gohan]] swears, [[LetsGetDangerous you know shit's about to go down]].
--->'''Gohan:''' ''(to Freeza)'' You... Condescending... Sadistic... Callous... MOTHERF[[SoundEffectBleep #@&]]ER!
** Vegeta's response to Goku saying he trained at 100G? "FUUU[[SoundEffectBleep ******]]UUUUCCKK!"
** Vegeta realizes that Gohan, Krillin and Dende have summoned Porunga while he was napping, resulting in the only unbleeped use of the word fuck in the series proper.
--->'''Vegeta:''' "OH YOU MOTHERFUUUUUUUUUCKERS!"
--->'''Piccolo:''' ''(on another part of the planet)'' Ow, my ears!
** Freeza's Scouter before it [[ReadingsBlewUpTheScale gives up on him]]? "F**K THIS, I'M OUT!"
** Piccolo manages to get one out after Freeza blasts a hole through his chest "F**k you."
** In ''Episode of Bardock'', when the eponymous AntiHero finally realizes he's in the past: "OF ALL THE STUPID... ASININE... ''[[JumpTheShark SHARK-JUMPING]] BULLSHIT!''" It pisses him off enough he goes Super Saiyan.
** A completely unbleeped one in episode 34 after [[spoiler: Bulma and Vegeta have sex.]]
--->'''Bulma''': ...Wait.
--->'''Vegeta''': What?
--->'''Bulma''': [[spoiler: Where's your condom?]]
--->'''Vegeta''': The fuck's [[spoiler: a condom?]]
*** Aside from that, the typical bleeped versions whenever someone insulted him for wearing a pink shirt.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Only Vegeta can use "No homo" as one of these and still sound undeniably badass.
** He also plans one to use on Krillin after the dragon has been summoned.
---> '''Vegeta:''' (thinking) Ok, as soon as they summon the dragon, I'm going to rush up and snap the bald one's neck. I'm totally going to yell "Team Three Star" when I do it, too! (imagines it, and Krillin's scream) Amazing.
** Although the killing was interupted, Freeza uses a RunningGag as one to Vegeta.
-->'''Freeza:''' It's time to send you crying home to mommy.
-->'''Vegeta:''' My mother's dead.
-->'''Freeza:''' I know.
* PrisonRape: Few instances of it during Episode 5 when Vegeta and Nappa were in an Arlian prison.
--> '''Nappa:''' Hey Vegeta. Don't drop the soap.
--> '''Green Bug:''' Welcome to Series/{{Oz}}, bitch! You (Vegeta) with the spiky hair, you're gonna be my bitch! I'm gonna sell you for a cigarette but not before I violate you because you're my [[CurseCutShort bi-]]"
** Nappa does this twice.
---> "Hi, I'm Nappa and this is Vegeta. He was a prison bitch!"
* PsychopathicManchild: Nappa.
-->'''Nappa:''' Is he here yet? Is he here yet? Is he here yet?
* PsychoStrings: This appears to have become Mr. Popo's {{leitmotif}}, which plays whenever he is about to do something very painful to someone else.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
-->''*Freeza Goon B shoots the spaceship*''\\
'''Krillin:''' ''Huh... Well there goes our ship.''\\
'''Bulma:''' (offscreen) '''WHAT THE! [[PrecisionFStrike F***ING!]] ''HELL!?'''''
* PyroManiac: Oolong in the Christmas Special.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:R]]
* RapidFireComedy: Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged.
* RapidFireNo: Vegeta lets one go when he's about to get blasted away by Goku's Kamehameha.
** Part 3 of episode 30 had two instances almost back-to-back:
*** First, when Goku decides to spare Freeza some energy, King Kai can be heard repeatedly saying "No". Subverted in that it is not necessarily rapid fire.
*** Shortly after, Freeza fires a blast at Goku and Goku returns the favor (thinking Freeza is wasting the little energy he was just given, so now Goku has to give him even more) with Freeza desperately shooting off "NONONONONONONONONONONO!"
* ReactiveContinuousScream: In Episode 27:
-->'''Vegeta:''' "Healer's down!"
-->'''Krillin:''' "Need a rez!"
-->'''Gohan:''' "Out of mana!"
-->'''Vegeta starts screaming and they all follow suit.'''
** Also happens in the Abridged Abridged episode after Vegeta shouts the Over 9000 meme. He and Nappa proceed to scream at each other for a couple seconds before Vegeta kills him.
** It also happens in part 2 of Episode 10 after Vegeta wakes up after the blast from the Spirit Bomb.
* ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: During Freeza and Vegeta's power struggle, Freeza's scouter climbs up to "F**K THIS, I'M OUT" and then explodes.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Krillin lets loose pent-up aggression on Bulma:
--> '''Krillin:''' Well, I dunno, maybe you could have ''bitched'' at him, how 'bout that! That's all you appear to be good for these days! Huh?! Used your bitch-fu on him! Bulma: The Mistress of Bitching; that's what they should call you! ''(a few scenes later)'' ...seriously! Five ancient Sages of Bitchdom all gathered together on the peaks of Mt. Bitch to proclaim your birth! And a hundred years later, when all the Bitch Stars had aligned, you were born and made everbody's life around you a living hell, because '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis YOU! ARE SUCH! A BITCH!]]'''
** Goku delivers one to Freeza without realizing it.
---> '''Freeza''' Unfortunately, Vegeta and I were having a disagreement. He wanted himself to live, and well... I didn't.\\
'''Goku''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=xYpfCrJPry4#t=516s Why do you wanna die]]?\\
'''Freeza''' No, I meant I wanted him to di-\\
'''Goku''' Is it because you look weird?\\
'''Freeza''' WHAT?!\\
'''Goku''' Oh well you know you've got that big head, those weird lips, and that tail -\\
(Freeza attacks Goku, who just shrugs it off)\\
'''Goku''' And you don't have ears...\\
'''Freeza''' Okay, NO.\\
(Freeza attacks Goku again, much more violently. Goku just shrugs it off again)\\
'''Goku''' And to top it all off? You're really kind of a jerk.
* RecapEpisode: Parodied hilariously with ''Dragon Ball Kai Abridged,'' which recaps the entire Saiyan saga in a little more than two minutes.
* RecordNeedleScratch: Happens when the warrior Namek confronting Freeza breaks out of his heroic speech because of his annoyance with Freeza's verbal heroic speech lines count; also happens after Krillin comments that he's not the first person to die in the series moments after Goku dies (leading to the first instance of the "Krillin! TooSoon!" gag).
* RecycledInSpace: In-universe, though most are examples of SpaceX. See that entry for the full list.
** Two specific instances stand out, since they actually use the "in space" bit: Jeice actually describes Space Australia as "Australia... in space" and the restaurant Spaceys has "good food... in space".
* RecycledScript: Parodied [[{{In-Universe}} in]] Lord Slug Abridged. Several of Slug's henchmen get fried after they accidentally refer to him as "King Piccolo", and even the Dragon finds his wish ''very'' familiar...
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Vegeta learns that Krillin doesn't have the four-star dragonball, he breaks a blood vessel out of pure rage, causing his eyes to appear red.
** Shows up again in episode 19.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jeice and Burter.
-->'''Ginyu:''' Burter was so tall... and blue! And you're so short, and red! It was the perfect little yin-yang thing we had going.
** More literal example with Gozu and Mezu.
* RememberedICouldFly: Played with when Nappa suddenly remembers he can fly ''while he's flying.''
** And Goku when Nimbus didn't make it to the hospital to catch him in time.
** Hindsight's a bitch, eh Raditz?
* ReminiscingAboutYourVictims: The Misfit Minion who raped Rudolph seems awfully fond of that memory...
* {{Retcon}}:
** [[spoiler: Dodoria's gender. Dodoria was referenced with male pronouns in "Bardock: Father of Goku" but is a woman in the series later on.]]]
* RetconningTheWiki: Freeza is apparently a WikiVandal, changing the Saiyan page to say "Stupid monkeys hit by falling rocks".
* RetiredMonster: Dende describes the horror and blood-spilling that occurred when there was a drought and Guru had to lead them through it. And he was not talking about the drought.
* {{Retirony}}: Probably coincidental, but Zarbon mentioned that his one-year anniversary [[spoiler:with his girlfriend]] was coming up in the very episode that Vegeta kills him.
* RhetoricalQuestionBlunder: Happens a fair amount when Goku and Freeza interact.
-->'''Freeza:''' [[WouldHurtAChild Really, killing [children] is a kindness.]] I could retract that kindness if you wish, but then who's the villain?
-->'''Goku:''' Y-You.
-->'''Freeza:''' N-No...that was a rhetorical question.
-->'''Goku:''' And I gave you a rhetorical answer.
* RipVanTinkle: Related but squickier example. After been stuck on a space ship with a screaming toilet and Bulma in her underwear, Krillin hides in a cave and uses the opportunity to let off steam. After he and Gohan fly after the villains, Bulma enters the cave to set up camp. Cue the screaming.
* TheRival: Yamcha insists that he and Tenshinhan are rivals in the second Q&A. Tenshinhan disagrees.
* RocksFallEveryoneDies: Vegeta tries to do this when he's fed up with the idiocy in the first season between Nappa and Goku.
-->'''Vegeta:''' [[BerserkButton That's it]], [[KillEmAll everyone dies]]! [[EarthShatteringKaboom Say goodbye to your planet, Kakarot]]!\\
'''Goku:''' [[IdiotHero That's not very nice]].\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[CaptainObvious OF COURSE NOT]], [[CardCarryingVillain I'M FUCKING EVIL]]!
* RuleOfFunny: Sometimes used for the sake of a punchline.
** The only explanation for how Vegeta's scanner readout was upside down when he was wearing it on the same side as usual.
*** Maybe there's a button that flips the display for when the user wants o wear it on the opposite side, and he hit it by mistake?
** And also probably the only reason that Bojack is inside King Kai's planet when in the movie, he's actually in ''a star'' that happened to be near King Kai's planet.
** As well as the reason Goku has a horrific memory followed by an aneurysm when seeing Popo at the start of Season 2, yet the same episode has a flashback depicting him casually asking Popo for a ride to fight Vegeta and Nappa.
*** For one thing, we don't know that he was ever face to face with Popo in the Lookout. For another, a lot of things are scarier when you're helpless in a hospital bed.
** Fake Namek.
** [[WordOfGod KaiserNeko's]] initial explanation for the muffin button gag, though when one fan [[Fridge/DragonBallAbridged came up with a plausible in-universe explanation]], Kaiser basically said SureWhyNot
* RuleOfThree: A few of these are slipped in every now and then.
-->'''Vegeta:''' "I find Cui, I kill Cui. I find Dodoria, I kill Dodoria. I find this Dragonball, I take this Dragonball. Let's see what else I can find."
* RunningGag: The "Krillin Owned" tally, references to how weak Raditz is, Piccolo calling Gohan a nerd, Yamcha calling Tenshinhan and Chaozu gay (with Krillin picking up the slack after Yamcha dies), and Krillin being told it's TooSoon after making an insensitive remark (i.e., comparing the rundown city to New Orleans during his training, loudly proclaiming that he's not the first to die after Goku dies, telling Goku that Chaotzu is "here... and there... and there..." after Chaotzu exploded).
** Vegeta's use of the titles of rock songs ("Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet and "Rock You Like A Hurricane" by The Scorpions") for a Pre-Ass Kicking One Liner.
** For the first few episodes, DOOOOOOOOOOOOOODGE! (It shows up again later.)
** Also, Goku's Kaio-Ken. Every time he shouts the name, someone goes "[something][[note]]usually Kaio[[/note]] What?" and gets punched in the face. Happens twice to Vegeta, and it even happens to Bardock during the special -- he gets a future vision of Goku using it and stops blocking his opponent's moves.
*** Heck, the gag isn't even restricted to this series. It manages to earn a reference in ''DeathBattle'', where Masako steps in to voice Goku in the "Goku VS Superman" fight, inflicting the gag on the Man of Steel.
** Zarbon's {{Double Entendre}}s that do nothing but heavily imply that he's gay [[spoiler: even though episode 17 reveals that he's straight and just so happens to speak in homosexual innuendo]].
** Bojack being stuck in the center of King Kai's planet.
** "I don't know what this [name] is, but it sounds [adjective]."
** One that shows up in a couple recent episodes:
--->'''Character A:''' ''"(talks about bringing something along for an emergency)."''\\
'''Character B:''' ''"Krillin?"''\\
'''Character A:''' ''"Krillin."''
** In episode 18:
--->'''Not Gohan:''' ''[says or does something creepy]''\\
'''Gohan:''' I need an adult.\\
'''Not Gohan:''' I ''am'' an adult.
** Krillin can't shut up when he's scared.
** George Takei.
---> ''Oh my...''
** "[[ADateWithRosiePalms I did it in the pod on the way here.]]"
** One appears to be forming where someone mentions Yamcha, and another person remarks that they don't know who he is, but still manage to make fun of him for being weak.
** "Quack!"
** Recently, the person who gives the disclaimer will die that episode.
** As of Episode 24, cutting off Yamcha before he can say anything.
*** This gag is the result of RealLifeWritesThePlot due to Yamcha and Kami's voice actor [[NarutoAbridged Vegeta3986]] leaving the team. Kami was quickly given a replacement, but to emphasize Yamcha's ButtMonkey status they don't let him speak.
** It hurts to laugh.
** Goku thinks his enemies have comic book super powers, such as being X-Men or having Bat-Vision.
** Every time someone mentions "that mountain over there."
--->"Actually it looks more like a Platea-UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!"
** Icarus gets eaten in each special he appears in.
** The words on the back of Vegeta's pink shirt keep changing, become more suggestive each time.
** Aliens keep mispronouncing Earth as Ee-arth.
** Everyone making fun of Vegeta for his pink shirt, knowing full well how much it pisses him off.

* SadistTeacher: Mr. Popo
-->'''Kami:''' Mr. Popo, where did you send them? \\
'''Popo:''' I'll tell you where they're ''not'': '''''safe'''''.
* SanitySlippage: Trying to cope with the fact that Gohan stole one of his dragonballs, Vegeta starts to lose his mind, and his eyes become bloodshot. He soon snaps out of it though when someone else catches his attention.
* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler:The Albino Namekians for the Great Drought. Guru drank it all]].
* ScheduleSlip: Lampshaded by Krillin in episode 24, when he mentions that it feels like they've been on Namek for a whole year.
** Specials after the first season would often raise the question of when the second season was starting and harshly shout down the person asking it.
** In one [=FAQ=] special the question on the schedule for the show was finally addressed... by [[TheUnintelligible Bubbles]].
* SchmuckBait:
--> '''Popo''': (to [[spoiler: Garlic Jr.]] who just insulted him and has no idea what he's capable of in this universe) "Oh please, ''do'' go on."
* TheScream: Krillin in episode 13, though he's prone to shrieking in horror anyway. Just usually not to the extent where it ''[[OverlyLongGag goes on longer than a minute]] and can be heard miles away.''
-->'''Vegeta:''' Ugh, I just got here and already this planet's annoying me.
** Vegeta gives off the granddaddy of all screams in episode 18. It can be heard from '''''EVERYWHERE'''''.
---> '''Gohan:''' "Krillin, do you hear that?"\\
'''Krillin:''' "I ''feel'' that."\\
'''Freeza:''' "What the devil is that noise?"\\
'''Goku in his spaceship:''' "Ahh, time for a delicious sports dri--huh? The heck is that?"\\
'''King Yemma in the afterlife:''' "Purgatory... Hell... Denise? Denise, do you hear that? Oh God, is that my wife!? LEAVE ME ALONE! YOU ALREADY TOOK THE KIDS, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT!?"\\
'''Trunks from 20 years in the future, on another planet, in another solar system:''' "Alright mom. Once that time machine is done, I can go back into the past to save Goku and my Fathe--... Daddy?"
* ScreamingAtSquick: Bulma hits on Future Trunks. She flirts with him by saying "I'll be your mommy" in reply to finding out he's a "momma's boy". On the outside, Trunks looks calm. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-XAzDHco1w8#t=611s On the inside however, totally different story.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere
-->'''Vegeta:''' [[HumiliationConga Crushed and broken]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext beneath an unconscious, naked child.]] Yup, I think I'm done here.
** As Freeza and Vegeta are fighting, Freeza's scouter keeps counting higher and higher before reading, "F**k This, I'm Out" and exploding.
* SelectiveObliviousness: Kami doesn't notice Mr. Popo's AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, even when it's directed at him.
* SelfParody: [[Anime/DragonBallKai Dragonball Z Kai Abridged]], which parodies the very concept of TheAbridgedSeries by retelling the entire first season in ''two minutes''.
* {{Sentai}}: The Ginyu Force. Vegeta lampshades this by asking Gohan if he's watched any ([[FridgeLogic how he'd know of those shows on the other hand...]]).
** Space Hulu.
** Figures.
--->'''Gohan:''' Vegeta, if you don't mind me asking, what are we in for?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Ever watched PowerRangers?\\
'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Ninja Turtles?]]\\

'''Gohan:''' No.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ...TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills?\\
'''Gohan:''' Oh yeah!\\
'''Vegeta:''' God dammit!
* SeriesContinuityError: Goes hand in hand with reusing certain clips for reaction shots, but a particularly noticeable instance happens in Episode 19. As part of the ''Wheel of Death'' TV show gag, the scene cuts to Freeza watching on the television Vegeta blew up in a previous episode and with a Dragon Ball behind him when all seven are currently being held by Ginyu.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Gohan manages to make this sound badass, who is usually treated with a FlatWhat before he tells them in laymen's terms.
-->'''Gohan:''' I'M GOING TO EVISCERATE YOU, AND USE YOUR GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT AS A CONDOM WHILE I FORNICATE WITH YOUR SKULL!\\
'''Nappa:''' [[FlatWhat What]].\\
'''Gohan:''' I'M GONNA SKULL**** YOU!
* SexyDiscretionShot: Bulma and Vegeta's sex scene. They only show the outside of Bulma's house in the night while the audio is they humping...and Vegeta revealing he doesn't know what a condom is.
* [[ShesAManInJapan She's A Man In The Original Series]]: [[spoiler: Dodoria.]]
* ShipTease: Bulma dreamed about Vegeta coming to rape her. Okay, yeah, not the best tease, but they do canonically hook up, so...
* ShootTheMedicFirst: Directly from the source material, but Dende is nice enough to point out that he's the white mage and no-one fucks with the white mage, before being blown up.
* ShootTheMessenger: Freeza in Episode 18.
-->'''Acai:''' Lord Freeza, the Ginyu Force are scheduled to arrive in five minutes.\\
'''Freeza:''' Thank you, Acai.\\
'''Acai:''' Also, after rising concerns with our personnel...exploding, we've decided to form a union.\\
'''Freeza:''' Adorable. (Acai explodes)
** He resorts to this in the previous episode to end a rather uncomfortable discussion regarding Zarbon's sexuality.
--->'''Minion:''' Lord Freeza, Vegeta's broken out of the healing taAAAAAAANK-*BOOM!*\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh no, that minion died. Could you go and fix that, we'll continue this conversation ''never''.\\
'''Zarbon:''' Um, didn't he say something about Vegeta?
** King Vegeta in Episode 25.
** Chichi threatens Krillin with this after Krillin asks what she would do if hypothetically he were to reveal the fates of Goku and Gohan after the fight with Raditz.
*** Not just shooting the messenger but she threatens to "Castrate the messenger in his sleep with a rusty carving knife." Ouch.
* {{Shoryuken}}: Freeza performs one on King Vegeta in a flashback. He even shouted it, with accompanying an "You win!" and "Ya ta".
* ShoutOut: Beside ones to other AbridgedSeries, there are shout outs that range from Pokemon to LookingForGroup.
-->'''Nappa:''' For pony!
** This scream by the [[RunningGag Ricola guy]] in episode 2 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBm_2IUn4MU&feature=player_detailpage#t=387s (shown in this point in the video)]] sounds a bit like [[StarWars R2D2's scream.]]
** In Episode 4, Piccolo's line "Everyone of Gohan's race can become a giant gorilla" is delivered in the same manner as an almost identical line given by Turles in the infamous Big Green dub.
** From Episode 6: [[{{Starcraft}} "YOU MUST CONSTRUCT ADDITIONAL PYLONS."]]
** Episode six has one for [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers The Monarch]]
---> Green Bug: Welcome to Oz, bitch! Yes, you (Vegeta) with the spiky hair, you're going to be my bitch! I'm going to sell you for a cigarette but not before I violate you because you're my [[CurseCutShort bi-]]
** The TV reporter who is asked for a word to describe how dead Yamcha is gets addressed as "[[ClarkKenting Mr.]] [[{{Superman}} Kent]]". He also tells Jimmy to get a picture of the bald one.
*** That one is more of a brick joke. Superman from episode five (The Hall of Justice scene) is voiced by Hbi2K, as is, "Mr. Kent."
** [[Manga/YuYuHakusho "No." "Don't be rude, Nappa."]]
** Vegeta, I can't...[[Manga/{{Naruto}} believe it!]] That's when Krillin and Piccolo do their [[strike: multi-form techinque]] Twin Jitsu.
** In the announcement video of how the series will be hosted at Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, Vegeta portrayed himself as "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic The Nostalgia Saiyan]]".
** "[[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/IWBTG/ MOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!]]"
** [[DaveTheBarbarian you couldn't hit the side of a space barn!]]"
** A parody of the Film/{{Ghostbusters}} theme is featured [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1bxCyxUg_I at the end of episode 10]].
** When Vegeta cuts Oozaru|Gohan's tail, he starts singing [[KarateKid a familiar song]]
** The insult [[Machinima/RedVsBlue "team-killing fucktard"]] is used in Bardock Abridged.
** "[[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce This season.]] ''[[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce You.]]''" Possibly doubles as a shout-out to ''WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged'', considering Antfish is a member of TeamFourStar, and Lanipator made a guest appearence as Mr. Popo in that series.
*** A more obvious one to ATHF is the [[strike: Plutonians]] fake Namekians.
** [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries "Damn it man, I'm a doctor, not an English teacher!"]]
** From the Bardock special:
--->(Bardock is under the pile of the dead bodies of his teammates.)\\
'''Bardock:''' Oh, God! It's true! You ''do'' soil yourself when you die! [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Oh, God, it's everywhere! It's in my Dodoria wounds!]]
** The title for Episode 13: [[IronMan Dr. Briefs Made This Episode In A Cave...]] [[MemeticMutation WITHABOXOFSCRAPS!]]
** In Episode 14, Krillin references the [[Music/{{ACDC}} AC/DC]] song "Big Balls" when he sees the Namekian Dragon Balls.
--->'''Krillin:''' Whoa, those things look huge! AC/DC be damned.
** Krillin calling Dende "Little Green" might be a reference to the UK dub, in which Piccolo was referred to as "Big Green"... which Krillin calls Nail. Nail responds by [[TakeThat threatening to snap Krillin's neck if he calls him that again]].
** During the CurbStompBattle between Zarbon and Vegeta, while Vegeta is being head butted by Zarbon, he can be heard saying [[PinkyAndTheBrain poit and troz.]]
** From episode 17:
--->'''Vegeta:''' M-my power is [[http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2206/2766991854_9324a1c81b.jpg maximum]]...
** Also from Episode 17: Appule can be seen playing ''Tenkaichi Budokai 3'' as himself fighting Bardock. Doubles as a CallBack to the Bardock: TAS special.
** [[ThoseTwoGuys Gozu and Mezu]] from episode four of season one introduce themselves and speak in German accents just like Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon's body builder characters Hans and Franz from ''SaturdayNightLive''
** When the Ginyu Force landed on Planet Namek in Episode 18, they greet Freeza, saying "We're here", in a manner oddly similar to [[CodenameKidsNextDoor a group of villains synchronize when they're speaking along with having a very shallow and grave voice.]] (Alternatively, it could be a reference to Film/{{Poltergeist}}. Or both.)
** The [[EvilAlbino Albino Namekians]] could be a reference to the [[MartianManhunter White Martians]]: they're white, the other sentient species on the planet is green, and the two races don't get along too well.
** Episode 19: As he fights Gohan and Krillin, Guldo (who can stop time) does [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure something in particular]].
--->'''Guldo:''' '''''ZA! WARUDO!'''''\\
'''Krillin:''' What are you ''(time stop)'' going on abou- ''(a steamroller drops on him)''\\
'''Guldo:''' You see that? That was just a taste of my power! ''(A still intact Krillin lifts the steamroller)'' Huh?\\
'''Krillin:''' Ow! What the hell was that?\\
'''Guldo:''' ''(in disbelief)'' That... was supposed to crush you.\\
'''Krillin:''' Gohan, did you see it? His power! He can--\\
'''Gohan:''' Stop time?\\
'''Krillin:''' [[WebVideo/JoJosBizarreAdventureAbridged --summon steamrollers]]!\\
'''Gohan:''' Y-You sure about that?\\
'''Krillin:''' Positive!
** Vegeta pulls a [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike "Look at your X, now look at me"]] in episode 19.
** The Spaceys restaurant is is parody of the Sonic Drive-In restaurant chain.
** The uncensored version of Vegeta's ClusterBleepBomb has the line "find me in the Alps", a Shout Out to an edited line from the TV version of ''Film/TheBigLebowski''.
** In the ChristmasSpecial, Piccolo says to [[EvilCounterpart Turles]], "[[SouljaBoy Bitch, you look like Goku]]."
** Piccolo and Turles also reference HarryPartridge and his [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/539314 "Nicholas Cage Wants Cake"]] short.
--->'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' I want him.\\
'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' ''I want him.''\\
'''Turles:''' You want this kid?\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''I want him.'''\\
'''Turles:''' You want--you want--\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''''I WANT THAT KID!'''''
** In the Bardock Special, there are numerous shoutouts to ImageBoards and the memes prevalent on them:
--->'''Dodoria:''' That Bardock's a pretty cool guy.\\
'''Zarbon:''' He conquers planets and doesn't afraid of anything.\\
'''Freeza:''' Doesn't afraid of anything ''indeed.''
** And the whole of Episode 20 to ProfessionalWrestling.
*** Also, Recoome's theme song is [=E1M1=] from ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''. ...[[CatchPhrase because that's what his name rhymes with.]]
** Super Kami Guru tells Dende that he could be {{Batman}}.
--->'''Dende:''' I don't know who that is!\\
'''Super Kami Guru:''' This is why we need TV!!!
** Vegeta [[CoupDeGrace finishes off Recoome and Burter]] with a [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Renegade interrupt]].
--->'''Goku:''' Vegeta! That was not very Paragon!\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[MassEffect Renegade for life.]]
** When Goku asks if Vegeta actually lost to Recoome:
--->'''[[spoiler: Ghost Nappa]]:''' [[FightClub You fell down some stairs.]]\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[CreepyMonotone I fell down some stairs.]]
** A great one in Episode 23 as Jeice meets his demise at the hands of Vegeta:
--->'''Jeice:''' ''(right before he dies)'' [[Franchise/JurassicPark Clever girl.]]
** Again in Episode 23
--->'''Vegeta:''' ''(after getting punched by Jeice)'' [[AnimalHouse Thank you, sir. May I have another?]]
** In Episode 24: [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion "Stop right there, Namekian scum!"]]
*** Also: [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries "SUMMONITSUMMONITSUMMONITSUMMONIT-"]]
*** When Mr. Popo is seen growing pot at the end of Episode 24, he is humming "Because I Got High" by Afroman.
---->'''Mr. Popo:''' I'm not getting rid of it.\\
'''Kami:''' Are you kidding? That shit's great for my glaucoma.
*** The Wilhelm scream is referred to as such in episode 24, when the soldiers are discussing, and trying to imitate, it. Then they actually do it with some "help" from Vegeta.
** In Episode 25, one of Gohan's {{Unstoppable Rage}}s references another character famous for them:
---> [[TheIncredibleHulk "GOHAN CRUSH EFFEMINATE ALIEN! GOHAN STRONGEST THERE IS!"]]
** After Krillin cuts Freeza's tail off in Episode 25, you can hear him make [[Film/TheThreeStooges Curley]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Zoidberg's]] 'whoop' sound as he runs.
** In Episode 25, Councilor Nappa appears to be wearing a [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} particularly familiar yet oddly concerning]] choice of [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v317/Darkness-a-Light/CouncilorNappa.png hats]].
** Piccolo's BigDamnHeroes moment in Episode 25 accompanied by theme music for a [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger different Demon King.]]
** Lord Slug says [[MortalKombat Get Over Here/Come Here]] when he extends his arms to grab Goku.
** Also, after Lord Slug has conquered earth.
--->'''Chichi:''' Bulma, Gohan is missing. And so is the outfit Piccolo gave him. [{{Beat}}] And ''Film/RedDawn1984'' is on Netflix!\\
[cut to Gohan fighting Slug's henchmen]\\
'''Gohan:''' [[MemeticMutation WOLVERINES!!!]]
** Piccolo comments that Freeza's [[Franchise/{{Alien}} third form]] will make RidleyScott sue them. This is a reference to Chris Rock's line from Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack''.
** The following is an odd reference to GTA IV;
--->'''Krillin:''' I'm an optimist.\\
'''Vegeta:''' You're an idiot.
** Who else but [[AxeCrazy Vegeta]] should make a 40K reference in Dragonball Z? This was said during his BeamSpam attack in Episode 27:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA!]]
** The line "Please don't break my arm" from Lord Slug Abridged is spoken like it`s being read from textspeak. This is possibly a reference to a troll on ''SecondLife'' named Ralph Pootawn. He`s a big green creature that when is asked to "Plz" not do something responds with "No".
** In episode 29, Goz sings a bit of "Haben sie Gehort das Deutsche Band?" from ''Film/TheProducers''.
** In episode 30, Part 1, when Goku goes Super Saiyan, he says a line that would make WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck proud of him.
** In episode 30, Part 2, when Vegeta [[RiseFromYourGrave rising from his grave]]:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [[Film/DawnOfTheDead When there's no more room in hell]], Vegeta will walk the--''[notices Namek collapsing on itself]''--other hell. What the hell?
*** Not the only Romero reference in episode 30. When [[spoiler: Guru is eaten alive]] his last words are [[DayOfTheDead "Choke on them"]].
** According to Bulma, her father is a [[Film/TheAvengers genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist]].
** The blip.tv exclusive [[TheStinger stinger]] for episode 30 Part 3 has [[spoiler:King Cold and his men turning the maimed Freeza into Mecha Freeza mimicking Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader at the end of ''RevengeOfTheSith'', complete with BigNo]]
** When Goku goes Super Saiyan in episode 30, Freeza stands there stunned and says "[[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker That's not funny]]."
** Revenge of Cooler has a couple from the titular character.
---> '''Cooler:''' "[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Tonight, I dine on monkey soup]]!"
---> '''Cooler:''' "[[Film/TheDarkKnightRises When your planet is in ashes, you have my permission to die]]."
---> '''Goku:''' "[[SaturdayNightLive I got a fever, and the only prescription is]] [[EatTheDog Icarus]]."
** Episode of Bardock includes a [[TheStinger after credits sequence]] that references a famous DubInducedPlotHole by having Bardock refered to as a "[[TortureTechnician brilliant scientist]]" who admits he's working on a "fake moon thing."
** Also in Episode of Bardock, when the [[spoiler:primitive Saiyan]] Tupac gets blown up by Chilled, Dr. Dre calls him a "[[TheNotoriousBIG big... small guy]]"
** The [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans]] try to sing "Welcome Christmas" from ''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' to both Bardock and Chilled. Both stop them before they get any farther than the first eight words.
** There's a subtle one in episode 32 when Gohan and Vegeta ask for their suits of armor, with Vegeta sounding [[TheIncredibles a bit like a certain ice-themed superhero...]]
--->'''Gohan:''' "Mom, where's my Saiyan suit?"\\
'''Vegeta:''' (with a country accent) "Woman, [[TheIncredibles where is my Saiyan suit?]]"
** When Future Trunks goes Super Saiyan and Freeza loses it, the theme for a different alien cyborg starts playing...
--->'''Freeza''' "[[Series/DoctorWho EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!]]
*** In Episode 34, Future Trunks' time machine vanishes to the iconic TARDIS sound effect.
** Later in episode 33 when [[spoiler:Trunks is lifting up Freeza's planet-destroying-attack]] the opening theme from ''The Lion King'' plays.
** And this from episode 33
---> '''Vegeta''' "Hey, did someone drink the last Hetap?! I'll kill you!"\\
'''Krillin''' "[[Film/TheThreeStooges Woop, woop, woop, woop, woop!]]"
** In the Cooler Movie, Krillin mentions that he doesn't want to go pick the Senzu beans because last time he forgot Korin's name and kept calling him "Whiskers the Wonder Cat", which is the name that was given to him in the infamous Harmony Gold dub.
** The title of episode 34 is [[XMen "News of Future Past"]].
** From Episode 35 we have this:
---> '''Goku''' (talking about the androids) "I wonder if they [[DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep dream of electric sheep...]]"
** As well as this:
---> '''Piccolo''' "Look! In the sky!"\\
'''Goku''' "Is it a [[SuperMan bird?]]\\
'''Piccolo''' "It's the androids!"\\
'''Goku''' "...my second guess was a [[SuperMan plane.]]
*** This is a double-ShoutOut, since Masakox voiced Goku when he ''fought'' Superman on DeathBattle.
* ShownTheirWork: In episode 19, Krillin says "I once had a crush on a little Indian boy that I thought was a girl..." This actually happened (with Upa) in Manga/DragonBall.
** In Season 2's {{Stinger}}, [[spoiler: Nappa]] reveals that he hired a "Mark Satan" to help him do a film. "Mark" is actually Mr. Satan's first name as revealed by Akira Toriyama.
*** [[spoiler:Nappa]] also mentions that the name isn't just right and considers Hercule (the English name for Mr. Satan) as an alternative.
** Toward the end of episode 30, when Yamcha's freaking out over Bulma dumping him, King Kai has Tenshinhan break one of Yamcha's legs. Yamcha screams "My ''good'' leg!" Tien broke Yamcha's left leg during the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai in Manga/DragonBall.
** After Sauza is killed, his last words are that he'll see his cousin Jeice in Space Hell. Video game information often says that not only are Jeice and Sauza of the same race, but they apparently hate each other (nothing about them being cousins, though).
** When Future Trunks introduces himself to Goku, his nervousness causes him to accidentally call him Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong is the name of the Monkey King from ''JourneyToTheWest'', which Dragonball was loosely based on.
* ShutUpKirk: Freeza attempts this on Goku in Episode 30 when he interrupts his BadassBoast by shooting him in the face. Goku [[NoSell No Sells]] it and finishes anyways.
* ShutUpHannibal: Delivered to Freeza in Episode 25.
-->'''Freeza:''' Well, well, well. I'm legitimately surprised that I missed one of you. But that's just fine, because I've been working on some jokes. Now tell me if you've heard this one. How many Namekians does it take to--\\
[=*gets punched and sent flying*=]\\
'''Piccolo:''' Just one.
** Freeza gets it again in Episode 28.
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh please, everyone's always on about the children. I already tried leaving them alive, but all they do is grow up under my rule or dedicate their pathetic lives to revenge. Usually both. Really, killing them this a kindess. I can retract that kindness if you wish, but then who's the villain?
--->'''Goku:''' (totally lost) Y... you.
* SiblingRivalry: Although the two are never shown interacting with each other (just as in the actual series), Freeza and Kooler really hate each other. Freeza repeatedly calling Kooler a prick and all.
** Then again, Kooler freely admits that he's a prick.
* SingleBiomePlanet: Namek, which is lampshaded by Piccolo as soon as he's wished there.
-->'''Piccolo:''' "Ugh... Everything looks the goddamn same on this ''goddamn PLANET!''"
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Piccolo
-->"Anyway, I figure, in order to unleash your hidden potential, I'd have to put you in immense physical danger, so I'm gonna throw you at that mountain."
** HilarityEnsues when it doesn't work.
* SlapSlapKiss: When Vegeta is training in 400G despite being hurt, Bulma starts arguing with him over a video link. They start cussing each other out. Eventually, Bulma orders him to meet her in her bedroom in 10 minutes. And that is where Trunks comes from.
* SlasherSmile: Vegeta shows a nice one, just after he gets a warm greeting by Namekian villagers who tell him where find the next Dragon Ball. Cue the opening.
** Ginyu has a hell of a slasher smile himself after punching a hole in his own chest, KubrickStare and all.
** Freeza seems to have one all of the time.
* SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat: The Christmas Tree of Might falls not only under Global Threat, but is classified as "Disney Evil" when Goku learns that it's sucking all the Christmas Joy out of the planet.
* SmokeShield: Parodied
-->'''Krillin:''' Did we get him?\\
'''Gohan:''' Krillin, [[FridgeLogic we can feel his energy]], why even bother asking?\\
'''Krillin:''' I'm an optimist.\\
'''Vegeta:''' You're an idiot.
* SoLastSeason: Piccolo's weighted clothing.
-->'''Piccolo:''' Don't think you have the upper hand. [[IAmNotLeftHanded I'm still wearing weighted armor.]]\\
'''Freeza:''' Weighted armor, hm? How quaint. How much does it weigh?\\
'''Piccolo:''' Same as it always did. One hundred kilo's... [{{Beat}} and SlasherSmile from Freeza] Oh. [[LampshadeHanging That concept kinda lost meaning after a while, didn't it?]]
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay:
-->'''Gohan:''' [[GrandTheftMe Krillin, that's not my dad!]]\\
'''Krillin:''' Gohan, of ''course'' it's your dad! Goku, what's your favorite food?\\
'''Goku/Ginyu:''' Waldorf salad.\\
'''Krillin:''' See? Double Baconat[[OhCrap oh]]''[[PrecisionFStrike shit]].''
** Later:
--->'''Goku:''' ''[dazed]'' Yay, I'm me again!\\
'''Krillin:''' Wait... Goku, what is your favorite food?\\
'''Goku:''' ''[confused]'' ...Favorite?\\
'''Krillin:''' He's him again!
* SoundtrackDissonance: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDzXT_C1qJU This]] plays while Nappa annihilates the Earth's military. From Nappa's perspective, though, the music is very appropriate, since he considers it to be his best day ever.
** Freeza's "[[TheSoundOfMusic favorite things]]" song.
** In Episode 27, while Freeza is terrorizing Vegeta and the others, Goku is sitting in his pod singing "Lime in the Coconut" and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". King Kai and Tien actually join in on the last one.
* SpacePirate: Bojack, who was a modern criminal type in-series (or rather, movie), but here is a traditional arrrr type, possibly to make up for the fact that he is a voice-only character.
* SpaceX: From "space pods", "space armor", "space barns" and "space ducks" to "Space Vogue", "space Twitter," "Space Skype," "Space Hulu," freakin' "Space ''Mexico''" and "[[OldYeller Old Space Yeller]]".
** Lampshaded by Piccolo in episode 2, providing the quote on the SpaceX page.
** Lampshaded once again when we learn that Jeice (who had an [[UnexplainedAccent Unexplained Australian Accent]] in the original series dub) comes from Space Australia.
--->'''Jeice:''' "More specifically, Space Brisbane. Go Space Broncos!"\\
Gotta be careful though Burter, or a space dingo'll eacher space baby.
*** The "Space Brisbane" part was specifically to set up a donation request to help the real Brisbane, which was being ravaged by floods at the time.
** Episode 20 gives us space sodas, space burgers, and a restaurant called Spacey's.
--->''It's good food, in space''
** Episode 23 mentions Space Pickles, and Krillin mistakenly says Jeice is from Space UsefulNotes/NewZealand.
** Planet Namek is the Space Boonies, according to Freeza.
** Piccolo switched from Myspace to Spacebook.
** There are even Space Eggs
** For those who are curious, here's the complete list: Space Pods, Space Armor, Space Barns, Space Ducks, [[{{Twitter}} Space Twitter]], [[{{Mexico}} Space Mexico]], Space Skype, [[{{Hulu}} Space Hulu]], [[UsefulNotes/{{Australia}} Space Australia]][[note]]Space Aus' for short[[/note]], Space Brisbane, a sports team called the Space Broncos, Space Dingos, Space Babies, Space Soda, Space Burger, a restaurant called Spaceys[[note]]It's good food, in space[[/note]], Space XXXX[[note]]Space Australian Lager[[/note]], Space VB[[note]]Another Australian lager but described as piss.[[/note]], Space Boonies, Space Pickles, [[UsefulNotes/NewZealand Space New Zealand]], Space Cats, arguably {{Myspace}}, [[{{Facebook}} Spacebook]], Space Eggs, Space Milk, [[HotPotato Hot Space Potato]], Space Hell, Space Frenchman, [[OldYeller Old Space Yeller]][[note]]'''Krillin:''' How is that a thing?![[/note]], Space Christ, Space Radio Shack, Space Best Buy[[note]]-Buy-Buy-Buy-Circuit City[[/note]] and Space Triple A.
** In their playthrough of HaloReach, there's also a mention of Space Europe and Space Guantanamo.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: The Kannasans, though they died in the original show, managed to miraculously repopulate, as said by Vegeta in episode 26.
** Perhaps they hid their young since THEY CAN SEE THE FUTURE!? and knew the Saiyans would destroy their race otherwise...makes quite a bit of sense actually, heck Toma even asks why they apparently didn't know the Saiyans were coming if they were psychic.
** [[spoiler: Nappa]]
* SpecialEditionTitle: The Ginyu Force episodes use their title sequence instead of the regular.
* SpecialGuest: KyleHebert (the voice of the narrator, teenage Gohan, and Ox King from the FUNimation dub of the actual series) makes an appearance as the narrator at the end of the second movie, which was before the official formation of TeamFourStar but contained most of the original voices of this abridged series.
** Hebert also provided his voice for the role of Santa Claus in the ''[[ChristmasSpecial Christmas Tree of Might]]'' special.
** ChristopherSabat, the voice of Vegeta in the Funimation dub, makes a cameo as the voice of two technicians in the Bardock Special.
*** Becomes utterly hilarious when you think he and Lani are in pretty much the same role, what with voicing the majority of the cast and all.
** And Christopher Robin Miller of ''ProfessorLayton'' fame. He gives Bubbles a classy British accent in ''Lord Slug Abridged''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In episode 17, Vegeta almost used the dub spelling of Freeza's name in his note.
** In Episode 33, we find out that Trunks was apparently taught the dub spelling, causing him to mis-pronounce Freeza's name as "Fry-za".
* {{Spoiler}}: Shouted constantly by the people on Freeza Planet 419 (A.K.A. Kanassa) after the native species mysteriously repopulates itself. All of these are ItWasHisSled to the fandom, but none of them have happened in-universe yet.
-->[[spoiler:"Bulma and Vegeta have a kid!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Cell reaches Perfect form!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"The real Buu is a child!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Goten and Trunks become a guy!"]]\\
[[spoiler:"Gohan is the strongest in the universe but still doesn't do craaaap!"]]
* {{Squee}}: Goku does one when King Kai warns him about Freeza.
* {{Squick}}: Many moments in-universe, most notably this conversation;
-->'''Dodoria''': And that's why I was considered the most beautiful, and fertile, woman on my home planet. Before Freeza blew it up.\\
'''Vegeta''': He tends to do that. Also, ''huuuugh.''
* StayInTheKitchen: Dr. Briefs to his wife.
* [[StopOrIWillShoot Stay Where You Are And We'll Shoot You]]
-->'''Krillin:''' Don't you mean "''Or'' we'll shoot you"?\\
'''Mook:''' We know what we said.
* StealthHiBye: Ginyu pulls the Hi part on Vegeta twice.
-->'''Ginyu:''' Hi Vegeta.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Hi Ginyu.
* StealthPun: Recoome's {{leitmotif}} is "At Doom's Gate" from ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}'', punning on his famous "Recoome rhymes with doom" line.
* StockPhrases: Freeza keeps count of [[ClicheStorm how many times he hears these from would-be heroes]]. He keeps track of even more than we do due to his constant exposure to heroic speeches; phrases such as "We're... going to... fuck your face!", which we would consider unique ones, he counts as stock, having heard it ''twelve times'' so far.
** And as for the more common ones?
--->'''Namekian Elder:''' That...that wasn't part of the deal!\\
'''Freeza:''' Aaaand FIVE HUNDRED! Dodoria, [[PreMortemOneLiner show 'em what they've won!]]
** In the Bardock special, Freeza complains about having to hear said speeches.
** In Episode 27, Goku finally gives one Freeza has never heard: "Imma deck you in the schnoz!"
* StockScream: The Wilhelm Scream can be heard in the Bardock Special. Also, from the Bardock Special onwards, the dying screams of the characters from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' are used for the deaths of almost all mooks.
** The Wilhelm Scream is discussed by a pair of mooks in episode 23. They're [[ConversationalTroping discussing it and trying (and failing) to imitate it]]; they get it right when Vegeta kills them.
* StopHelpingMe: In episode 22, Super Kami Guru talks up Nail to Freeza something fierce...
-->'''Guru:''' Please. Nail isn't afraid of ''you''. He is the strongest of our race!\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh ''really''?\\
'''Nail:''' ...uhhh, sir?\\
'''Guru:''' Yeah, Nail's gonna ''destroy'' your sorry ass! They wouldn't be able to air it on the news because it'll be ''so '''BRUUUTAL!'''''\\
'''Nail:''' Sir, seriously!\\
'''Guru:''' Hush, Nail! I'm ''speaking for you''.
* StraightMan:
** The [[PsychoForHire hilariously violent]] Vegeta does not suffer fools lightly.
--->'''Vegeta:''' Nappa, what are you doing?\\
'''Nappa:''' It's his turn, Vegeta; I have to wait for him.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''(sputters in disbelief, as his nose starts bleeding)''\\
'''Nappa:''' You okay, Vegeta?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Yes, just... just an aneurysm from the sheer stupidity.\\
'''Nappa:''' Huh. Didn't think you were that stupid, Vegeta!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''(screams in rage)'' 9 minutes, 18 seconds. 9 minutes, 18 seconds!\\
'''Nappa:''' What's that, Vegeta?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Happiest. Moment. Of. My life!\\
\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[SurroundedByIdiots I'm]] ''[[SurroundedByIdiots surrounded]]'' [[SurroundedByIdiots by idiots.]]\\
'''Goku:''' I thought you were surrounded by gumdrops and ice cream!\\
''[Vegeta screams in anguished frustration]''\\
\\
'''Zarbon:''' [[CrashIntoHello Vegeta!]] [[DoubleEntendre How dare you ram into me when I'm thinking about]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext Lord Freeza and my thong.]]\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[OnlySaneMan Yeah...]] [[GenreSavvy just going to]] [[BrainBleach ignore that one entirely.]]
** Tenshinhan, while ironically being labeled gay, seems like a [[IncrediblyLamePun straight guy]], almost on par with how he's portrayed in the English dubs of DB and DBZ.
---> '''Tenshinhan:''' I'm the only serious character in this show. That's the joke.
** Also, Nail, especially in comparison with ButtMonkey Krillin and his senile and AxCrazy master, Guru.
** Gohan has so far been this for the heroes.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike:
** After Nail makes it clear to Krillin that he doesn't appreciate the nickname Krillin tried to give him...
--->'''Guru:''' Big Greeeeeen!
** Vegeta and Zarbon in Episode 17 try to lay low and don't want to fly around like a jackass saying "I've got a Dragon Ball!"[=/=]"Come to papa, you bald bastard!". They were going to say "Come and get me, Freeza" but what they heard works too.
** Gohan and Vegeta singing ''[[{{Queen}} Don't Stop Me Now]]'' in episode 18.
** Chiaotzu (almost) correctly guesses that Freeza pulled a TakingYouWithMe when Goku proved to powerful to beat, since he tried the same thing. The almost comes from the fact that Freeza would have survived if he'd done it correctly, and Chiaotzu is instead guessing King Kai's line of thought.
** Dende and King Kai thinking up the same plan to [[spoiler:get the living people off of Namek, save Goku and Freeza.]]
** In ''Episode of Bardock'', the villagers start to sing on two different occasions. Both times they are stopped, first by Bardock and then Chilled, with both saying "Stop! None of that! Shame on you!"
* [[EvilChancellor Stupid Chancellor]]: Nappa to King Vegeta.
* [[PsychicNosebleed Stupidity Nosebleed]]: Nappa makes Vegeta have one in episode 9.
* StupidSacrifice: Even Piccolo realizes that he could have simply grabbed Gohan rather than take the hit for him.
* SuddenHumility:
-->'''Gohan:''' With this powerup, I'm now as strong as you were when we fought on Earth!\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[SarcasmMode Congratulations!]] [[SoLastSeason You're still weaker than the last 3 guys I killed.]]\\
'''Gohan:''' Wow. I now know what it's like [[CantCatchUp to feel like Krillin]].\\
'''Krillin:''' Sucks, doesn't it?
* SuperSenses: Namekians and hearing. Piccolo can hear people talking... from the ''other side of the planet.''
-->'''Gohan''' (stuck on top of a cliff) How am I supposed to get down from here?\\
'''Piccolo''' (from really far away) ''CLIMB DOWN!''\\
'''Gohan:''' I can't even get any food or water! What should I do?\\
'''Piccolo:''' ''I SAID '''CLIMB DOWN!!'''''\\
'''Gohan:''' If only I had some sticks or reeds lying around... I could make a makeshift ladder, or a rope...\\
'''Piccolo:''' '''''[[{{Angrish}} AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!]]'''''
** Similarly:
--->'''Dende:''' He is on Namek.\\
'''Gohan:''' Wait, where is he?\\
'''Dende:''' [[ExactWords On Namek.]]\\
'''Piccolo:''' (''from the other side of the planet'') ''You dumbass!''\\
'''Krillin:''' Why didn't it bring him here?\\
'''Dende:''' You must be specific.\\
'''Gohan:''' Oh, so it's a sort of [[TheMonkeysPaw monkey's paw]]; you have to be careful what the hubris in your wish is.\\
'''Piccolo:''' (still distant) '''''NERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD!'''''
** And shortly after that, when Vegeta figures out Gohan and Krillin have summoned Porunga without him:
--->'''Vegeta:''' Oh, you mother--*cut to Krillin and Gohan*--fuckers!\\
'''Piccolo:''' (still distant) Ow, my ears!
** Lord Slug's weakness, which Piccolo totally exploits; Piccolo rips his ears off first so he isn't affected.
--->'''What?'''
** In 34 when Piccolo overhears Trunks and Goku's conversation and laughing and taunting Vegeta:
--->'''Piccolo:''' HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!\\
'''Vegeta:''' What's so funny!?\\
'''Piccolo:''' [[RunningGag Your shirt!!]]
* SuicideAsComedy: Played darkly straight in Episode 34, where Future Trunks reveals that [[spoiler: Yamcha kills himself upon learning that Bulma is pregnant with Vegeta's child]]. Even ''Goku'' is taken aback.
-->''Shot of Yamcha's hanging corpse
-->'''Goku''': ''Dark''.
* SuperSentaiStance: The Ginyu Force, as expected. In Episode 22, Goku tells Ginyu it's boring, and an offended Ginyu says that he makes these poses to raise morale.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Vegeta uses these exact words when he realizes Goku's no brighter than Nappa.
** Also Freeza, much to his chagrin.
*** Later subverted when [[HypercompetentSidekick Ginyu]], quirky as he might be, calms Freeza down with sensible advice.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
** Planet Vegeta was blown up by falling rocks, not a Death Ball thrown by Freeza. At least, that's what its Wikipedia entry says.
*** P.S. Freeza rules you!
** Gohan's stupid-looking watch tells time, and nothing else...
** When Vegeta asks Krillin to almost kill him, we get a blend of this and ExactWords.
--->'''Krillin:''' And there's no reprecussion for this?\\
'''Vegeta:''' I will not punch you.\\
'''Krillin:''' Oddly specific.
*** Krillin doesn't listen to his instructions, so Vegeta threatens to punch him anyway.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:T]]
* TakeThat: The [=AWA=] special is an affectionate TakeThat to the crew at DaizenshuuEX... at least, we hope it's affectionate, considering they interviewed TFS on their podcast and played the video at their panel...
** Another one is directed at ''Film/DragonBallEvolution'':
--->'''Goku:''' "Man, this is worse than that time I was in high school, and all the guys called me "Geeko", and I was Piccolo's slave, I couldn't get [=ChiChi=] to like me, and... Oh ''wow'', [[NonSequiturThud I hit that rock harder'n I thought]]."
*** And then there's this:
---->'''Nappa:''' Wait, Vegeta! Does that mean we've offended EVERYONE?!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Hold on a minute, let me think... DRAGONBALL: THE MOVIE!\\
'''Nappa:''' Haha...aha! Aaaaah, high school!
** And then this jab at a certain dub.
--->'''Krillin:''' I know! I'm gonna call you Big Green!\\
'''Nail:''' CALL ME THAT AGAIN AND I WILL '''SNAP YOUR NECK!'''
** Vegeta says this to Gohan after he runs into him in episode 18.
** There are several in the Bardock special, aimed at the later villians and the GT saga, when Bardock sees into the future as he is dying.
--->'''Bardock:''' But wait...wait, there's more. He fights...a giant green bug...man. And then a giant...pink...manchild. Oh no, it's dark again...where is...\\
'''Para Para Brothers:''' *rapping and dancing*\\
'''Bardock:''' ...and I now welcome the sweet embrace of death...
** Speaking of GT, in Episode 20, when Vegeta introduces himself, the "Step into the Grand Tour!" rap from Funimation's GT dub (prior to the season boxsets) plays. He quickly says "Oh the fuck with this!" and attacks Recoome.
** Also from Episode 20...
--->'''Vegeta:''' Wrestling's fake.\\
'''Crowd:''' *boos him*
** In the Lord Slug special
--->'''Dr Briefs:''' [[{{Armageddon}} Quick, get me Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi, and Aerosmith]]!\\
'''Oolong:''' [[{{Armageddon}} What about Ben Affleck]]?\\
'''Dr Briefs:''' (sharply) What about ''bacon''? (Remember that Oolong is a talking pig)
** In the ''Episode of Bardock'' special, Bardock himself utters this [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall towards his own plot line]]!
--> '''Bardock''': [[EarthAllAlong I'm in the f*cking past]]. Of all the '''[[PunctuatedPounding stupid]]''' '''[[PunctuatedPounding asinine]]''' '''[[JumpedTheShark shark-jumping bullshit]]'''!
** Also in the ''Episode of Bardock'', Lord Chilled and his minions, disguised as the Space Police, say they are there to catch evil space criminals and other ne'er do wells. What does Dre say?
--> '''Dre''': I can assure you we have already exiled [[ChrisBrown Chris of the clan Brown]] from our planet.
* TakeOffYourClothes: Vegeta to Krillin and Gohan in Episode 24.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Now both of you... ''strip.''\\
'''Krillin:''' Uuuuuhh...\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[BaitAndSwitch I've got body armor for you.]]\\
'''Krillin:''' ''Less'' awkward.
** Apparently, King Yemma has been having newly dead arrivals remove their clothes for laughs. In episode 28:
---> '''King Yemma:''' Next! Strip. (stamp.) Next! Strip. (stamp.) Next! Strip. (zipping sound, King Yemma leans forward.) Nice!\\
'''Recoome:''' [[ThirdPersonPerson Recoome]] thanks you.
* TakingYouWithMe: Lord Slug to Goku in ''Lord Slug Abridged''.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted, as Jaice found out the hard way.
* TalkingToHimself: Even though the cast is significantly larger than most Abridged Series, multiple performance is still unavoidable (Lanipator in particular, who voices Krillin, Piccolo, ''and'' Vegeta).
** Lampshaded at Youmacon 2009, where Lani intros himself as playing Chris Sabat.
* TalkLikeAPirate: On King Kai's planet, Bojack is given a pirate accent, it's currently unknown if this will stick.
* TalkToTheFist: Jeice repeatedly gets interrupted by being punched by Goku in Episode 21.
* TechnologyLevels: Unknown where Earth is, but Freeza is seen using Wikipedia, [[SpaceX Space]]Twitter, and Space Skype.
** Vegeta watches Space Hulu.
*** Figures.
* TemporalParadox: When Trunks asks Goku to [[GrandfatherParadox keep his birth a secret from his parents or else he might not exist in the future]]. Goku who's an IdiotHero, points out the TemporalParadox.
--->'''Goku:''' Wait, but if you don't exist; then you don't come back in time. But then you could never tell me. Which means I never know. [[StableTimeLoop You'd still be born]] and... Why does everything smell like copper?
* TemptingFate:
--> '''Krillin:''' It's been tough, but now we'll never have to see that rotten Saiyan ever again! ''[Vegeta crashes to Earth]'' ...''Alive'' again. We'll never have to see him ''alive'' again. That's what I meant.
--> '''Vegeta:''' They've broken my body... I've failed in my mission to find the Dragon Balls... I even lost my tail... but at least it can't get any worse... from here... \\
'''[[spoiler:Ghost Nappa]]:''' Vegeeeeta...
** Earlier:
--->'''Krillin:''' Ow! This can't possibly get any worse.\\
'''Popo:''' Hi!\\
'''Krillin:''' AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! ''(Krillin Owned Count: 4)''
** Then later:
---> '''Goku:''' Oh well, we won't need [all four senzu beans] on Namek!
** Still later:
--->'''Ginyu:''' This is RIDICULOUS! But at least I'm not trapped in some useless body.\\
''(Vegeta warps behind him)''\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Give me a minute.]]\\
''(Beatdown ensues)''
** And then...
--->'''Dende:''' "I'm your white mage. And nobody fucks with ''the white mage''." [[ShootTheMedicFirst *Freeza'd*]]
*** [[spoiler: Subverted, since Dende gets revived by Shenron and then, just to prove his earlier point and screw over Freeza, wishes everyone on Namek except Goku and Freeza to Earth. Nobody fucks with "the white mage", indeed.]]
** Arguably, Freeza [[TemptingFate tests his limits]] as well.
--->'''Freeza:''' [[SmiteMeOMightySmiter If I'm so evil, then let God strike me where I stand.]] ([[BoltOfDivineRetribution cue bolt of lightning]]... [[SubvertedTrope which]] [[NoSell doesn't harm Freeza at all]]) [[BlasphemousBoast Ha, nice try, jackass! Next time, give it your A-game!]]
*** One could argue that said "A-game" came in the form of an enraged Super Saiyan and a couple of wayward Destructo-Disks. God being God and all, the lightning strike was probably just a final warning of what was to come.
** On Namek, Nail mentions that he wants something exciting to happen and doesn’t care what it is. It cannot be denied that an invasion from Freeza does make things less boring.
** In Episode 32, Bulma and Vegeta both seem rather good at this.
--->'''Bulma:''' He's probably running out of fuel soon so God knows if he'll ever make it back here!\\
'''Vegeta:''' (crashes to Earth) I'M BACK, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES]]!\\
Then later...\\
'''Vegeta:''' The only thing I hate more than weaklings is the color pink! (Screams)
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: You wouldn't even think about it until after the reveal, but [[spoiler: Dodoria is pink]].
** And [[spoiler: looks like she has lipstick and eyeshadow on. Not to mention her going nuts whenever someone calls her fat.]]
* ThatCameOutWrong: From episode 23:
-->'''Ginyu:''' First off, we have to [[DoubleEntendre touch on Freeza's balls]].\\
'''Jeice:''' Uhhh, sir...\\
'''Ginyu:''' Yes, yes, realized the moment I said it...
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: Krillin's response to Burta's remark about being "the fastest in the universe."
* ThemeNaming: Parodied in Episode 25. In DBZ canon, most characters from a certain family, race or faction are all theme-named. In particular, the Saiyan race are all named after vegetables (which "Vegeta" itself is short for), so the "smartass" Saiyan who informs King Vegeta of Freeza's plans is named "Butaraga"[[note]]Rutabaga[[/note]].
** The [[spoiler:primitive Saiyans]] in ''Episode of Bardock'' are all named after rappers.
* ThemeTuneCameo: In Episode 17, Bulma is humming ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4O9U1it44I Romantic Ageru Yo]]'', from the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', when Krillin arrives with the Dragon Ball he got from Super Kami Guru.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Happens often, but a memorable moment is after Popo knocks Krillin off Kami's lookout ([[RunningGag Krillin Owned Count: 3]])
-->'''Popo:''' Enjoy the climb back up, bitch!
** Vegeta seems to be fond of this trope:
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after stealing Freeza's Dragon Balls] Later, bitches.
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after stealing a Capsule Corp. spaceship] Sayonara, bitches!
--->'''Vegeta:''' [after returning to Earth] I'm back, bitches!
** Taken to the extreme with Krillin's "bitch rant" at Bulma.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
-->'''Gohan:''' We have about 10 minutes before Vegeta finds out I stole this. *holds out a Dragonball*
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] as Piccolo insists this while Tenshinhan fights Nappa... despite the former's desperate pleas for help.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Even while Nappa and Vegeta mock Krillin, Nappa points out that, "at least you've proven that ''your'' Raditz is still stronger than ''our'' Raditz."
** A literal example between Vegeta and Guldo (the green guy in the Ginyu force) in which Vegeta throws dog treats at Guldo [[JerkAss for his own amusement]].
** After learning that in Future Trunks' timeline, Yamcha commits suicide due to learning that Bulma was pregnant with Vegeta's child, Goku tells Yamcha that he's his friend.
* TimeTravel: In "Episode of Bardock", Bardock gets sent back to planet Vegeta, extremely far in the past, though he takes a while to figure this out.
* TitleDrop: Lampshaded and called out in the ''Christmas Tree of Might''.
** Episode 29's title, "Freezer Burn", gets dropped as well.
* TooDumbToLive: Freeza's honest view of Goku and all the nonsensical stuff he spouts out.
-->'''Freeza:''' N-no, that was a rhetorical question.\\
'''Goku:''' And I gave you a rhetorical answer.\\
'''Freeza:''' Good Lord, I traded in Vegeta for this.
** And then:
--->'''Goku:''' Wow, that was a close one. I was almost out of the frying pan and into the...lava.\\
'''Freeza:''' How do you ''function''?
** Later still:
--->'''Freeza:''' I just love how easy it is to get away with this s*** with you people. I mean I want to transform and you sit there and let me; I want to blow up the planet and ''you sit there and let me''; I want to reach 100% power and [[AC:''YOU JUST SIT THERE AND LET ME!'']].
** This is Bardock's assessment of the Kannasans. Just because they're psychic doesn't mean they're smart, a theory which turns out to hold water. Though they managed to repopulate later, so maybe they weren't as dumb as they appeared.
** Let's not forget about Nappa.
--->'''Nappa:''' [after Krillin throws a Destructo Disk at him] Ooh, a Frisbee, Vegeta!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Nappa, no! It's a trick!\\
'''Nappa:''' But Vegeta, tricks are for kids.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ([[Beat]]) You know what, on second thought, catch it. Catch it with your teeth.
* TooFunnyToBeEvil: NAPPA.
* TookALevelInBadass: Played straight and lampshaded with Goku, Gohan and the 'Z Warriors' in season 1. And then subverted in season 2:
-->'''Guru:''' ''[about Krillin]'' I see something within this young man: strength yet untapped, power yet unleashed. Now hold still, as I ''unleash the valley of strength '''hidden deep within!''''' ''[nimbus of lights surround Krillin]'' There. I have unlocked your hidden potential.\\
'''Krillin:''' Huh... I don't feel that different.\\
'''Guru:''' [[TheKrillin It wasn't that much]].\\
'''Krillin:''' Huh. So this is my full potential?\\
'''Guru:''' Yes.\\
'''Krillin:''' So it's...\\
'''Guru:''' ...all downhill from here.\\
'''Krillin:''' Like Yamcha.\\
'''Guru:''' I do not know what this Yamcha is, but it sounds disappointing.
* TookALevelInDumbass: Goku's getting [[IdiotHero stupider]] with every episode. [[RuleOfFunny And it's hilarious]].
* TookALevelInJerkAss: Krillin in season 2. He never bothers to learn Dende's name and berates him for going on about his family's death (though since he was resurrected before and naturally knows anyone can be brought back but its still pretty cruel). He also keeps being more cowardly and refusing to fight. Possibly that this may just be a result of everyone being a dick to him but its hard to feel bad for him compared to season 1.
* TooSoon: Another running gag involving Krillin where anytime Krillin says something "offensive" on the heels of a tragedy -- or in the case of comparing the ruined time city to New Orleans, making reference to a tragic event that shouldn't be mocked (Hurricane Katrina), a character yells, "Krillin! Too soon!"
* TrainingFromHell: Played straight ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmTTweQDmrI though hilariously]]) with Piccolo. Subverted with King Kai. And then there's the TrainingMontage. Taken to its literal extreme with Mr. Popo. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJDa3irhkoI Check out 2:45 for a sample.]]
-->'''Gohan:''' So, how was your training, Krillin?\\
[Krillin freezes as he hears Popo's mocking laughter in his head]\\
'''Krillin:''' ''[weeping]'' [[FightClub First rule of Popo's training! Do not talk about Popo's training!]]\\
'''Gohan:''' Why are you crying?\\
'''Krillin:''' SECOND RULE OF POPO'S TRAINING!
** Both Gohan and Dr. Briefs try to deconstruct the idea of TrainingFromHell by pointing out the longterm downsides, like horrible muscle degeneration, but both are ignored by their listeners, [[{{Jerkass}} Piccolo]] and [[IdiotHero Goku.]]
** A quick flashback to Gohan's training shows him on the run from a Tyrannosaur!
* TrainingMontage: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V06DISKajss This AMV]] sums up the training leading up to Vegeta and Nappa's landing. And it. Is. ''awesome''.
* TranquilFury: How Vegeta responds to having his tail cut off.
--> '''Vegeta:''' [Calmly] You know... I thought I'd be angrier, what with the utter humiliation and loss of my tail... Or maybe I'm just so ''unbelievably'' enraged that I've come full circle. Oh well! Either way it's time to put an end to this.
** Then he calmly unburdens his shame of his defeat on Earth to Cui before blowing him straight to hell. It's starting to look like the only thing scarier than a raging Vegeta is a mellow one. And, of course, Mr. Popo.
---> "God, I love therapy."
** And used twice when his attempt to explain his superiority fall flat due to stupid remarks from Goku.
---> '''Vegeta:''' I'm going to start beating you now. I don't know when I'll stop.
** [Later, as he's about to crush Goku's body like a grape]
---> '''Vegeta:''' I'm going to enjoy this ''far'' more than I should.
** Also Bulma's answer to Krillin's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** And Freeza can do it too, though the tranquility isn't always stable.
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh, I'm sorry, I'm usually more composed. I'm just a little bit ''absolutely livid''.
** In Episode 30, it actually makes (Super Saiyan) Goku temporarily smarter.
--->'''Goku:''' Gohan, take Piccolo, find Bulma, get back to the ship.\\
'''Gohan:''' But what about you?\\
'''Goku:''' If Piccolo ''dies'' then all of this was ''pointless!'' Take him, get to the ship, and get out of here!\\
'''Gohan:''' [[DumbassHasAPoint This is surprisingly well thought-out for you.]]\\
'''Goku:''' [[SuppressedRage ...Gohan? Where should you be right now?]]\\
'''Gohan:''' The ship?\\
'''Goku:''' '''THE SHIP!!!'''\\
'''Gohan:''' [[ShuttingUpNow Okay..!!]]
** King Cold [[spoiler:had a rather jovial tone of voice after Freeza was killed. When Trunks says he thought Cold would be more pissed, Cold says he is, "Blindingly so".]]
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Played with. [[spoiler:Vegeta and Freeza's first transformations happen in seconds, with our heroes too shocked to react. Nail distracts Piccolo during Freeza's second one. He only gets away with his third one because Krillin used up too much power shooting Vegeta to make a Kienzan when Gohan asks him why he doesn't do just that.]] Gloriously lampshaded by Freeza when fighting Super Saiyan Goku.
** Goku himself lampshades this in ''Revenge of Cooler'', wondering why he allows the villains to do this at all. Although, like Freeza's first transformation, Cooler's transformation does happen pretty fast as well.
* TrappedInVillainy: It gives us a fairly strong hint that [[TheDragon Zarbon]] and at least some of Freeza's other men are this.
-->'''Freeza:''' You know, Zarbon, I'm starting to think my people don't understand what I pay them for.\\
'''Zarbon:''' You don't pay us-\\
'''Freeza:''' -allow them to live for.
* TropeName:
-->'''Nappa:''' Hilariously derailing one-liner.
* TryNotToDie: When Krillin goes out to get the Namekian Dragon Balls' password, Vegeta offers him this encouragement.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Try not to get yourself killed out there, God forbid you make me happy.
* TwistEnding: In ''Lord Slug Abridged'', [[spoiler: Guru is Lord Slug's EvilTwin]].
* TheUnintelligible: Lord Slug is this prior to the granting of his wish.
** During an [=FAQ=] special, Bubbles answered the question of how the episodes were scheduled. Yes, the monkey. And no, they didn't have subtitles this time.
* TheWorfEffect: Like, every Z warrior except Goku and Gohan. Then again, justified due to the series it's based on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:U]]
* UnexplainedRecovery: The entire Kanassian species miraculously repopulated. After being exterminated and eaten by giant monkeys.
* TheUnpronouncable: Nobody seems to be able to pronounce the Japanese name for Piccolo's "Speical Beam Cannon[[labelnote:*]](Makankosappo)[[/labelnote]]", including Piccolo himself.
-->"''Makansa... Makakasappa... Mekasappaaah'', Oh to hell with it. ''Special Beam Cannon!''"
** "''Makansapparappaka!!''"
** Goku: "So are you just stealing Krillin's attacks now or should I look out for the Tri-Beam... or the Garlic Gun... or the Makankapotamus".
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Krillin initially assumes Freeza is a woman.
-->"That thing's a GUY!?!?!"
** And then in episode 15, we get an inversion from [[spoiler:Dodoria]].
* UnstoppableRage: Vegeta in episode 18. It even drives him temporarily ''insane'', until Gohan powering up snaps him out of it.
** Also, just like in the show Gohan is known for these in general - only now they're even more exaggerated.
* UnusualEuphemism
-->'''Goku:''' Holy black on a Popo!
* UselessSuperpowers: The ability to see the future is often less than productive.
--> '''Bardock:''' Useless-ass psychic powers! *take giant energy beam to the face.*
[[/folder]]

[[folder:V]]
* ViewersAreGeniuses: Some of the jokes are quite subtle and you'd really have to be in the know to get them.
** The obscurity of some jokes was actually lampshaded at one point.
--->'''Vegeta:''' Oh God damn it Nappa, nobody's going to get that.
--->'''Tien:''' As a matter of fact, I did.
* VillainousBreakdown: As of Episode 24, Freeza finally hit his when Nail tells him that while he spent an hour flying to the middle of nowhere and then spent a further fifteen minutes ripping his arm off, Dende has given the earthlings the password to the Dragonballs, shattering his polite and mocking facade for good.
-->'''Freeza:''' I WILL ''F***ING MURDER'' YOU!
-->'''Nail:''' Whatever.
** He gets a second one immediately after when he realizes that his entire army, including his most elite fighting force, have been bested by a 26-year-old dwarf, a five year old half-breed (not present: his Saiyan father, who wiped four of the five) and a Saiyan prince (the last of which actually killed them all) he had written off as beneath his notice. Made for a bitchin' day.
** Freeza Lampshades this in episode 25;
--->'''Freeza:''' Oh, I'm sorry. I'm usually far more composed. I'm just a little bit ''absolutely livid''.
** Then there's his entire fight with [[IdiotHero Goku]]. That seriously took a toll on Freeza's patience.
--->'''Freeza:''' That's stupid! You're stupid! Stop being stupid!
** And it just keeps going downhill after Goku becomes Super Saiyan:
--->'''Freeza:''' You think now that you're this . . . so-called 'Super' Saiyan that you're better than me--''Lord Freeza?!'' ''WELL YOU'RE NOT!!'' I own you! I own your planet! I own ''this'' planet! In fact . . . '''[[EarthShatteringKaboom F**K THIS PLANET!!!]]'''
** And even later:
--->'''Freeza:''' '''SMASH MONKEY! SMASH MONKEY!!'''
** All of the above leads to some FridgeBrilliance, as after Dodoria's death, Freiza no longer had anyone to get angry for him.
** Freeza goes through ''another'' breakdown when he sees Future Trunks go Super Saiyan.
* VillainousBSOD: Freeza ''literally'' has one when Future Trunks cuts him in half, showing an actual Windows BSOD, then the screen itself splits as he does.
* VillainProtagonist: Let's not kid ourselves, Vegeta is pretty much the protagonist for the first half of season 2. And [[CardCarryingVillain he's most definitely a villain.]] For the moment.
* VillainyDiscretionShot: Vegeta slaughters an entire Namekian village while the opening credits play.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: "'''''I AM CHAMPION CHRISTMAS!!!'''''"
* VoicesAreMental: Rather impressively averted. Goku and Ginyu, rather than keeping their own voices when they switch bodies, are stuck with each other's voices, but still ''talk'' like themselves. Other users of this trope should learn from them.
** Goku still ''thinks'' in his own voice though, which also makes sense.
* VolleyingInsults: Nail and Vegeta do this to each other in episode 18.
** A little between Freeza and Vegeta in Episode 25:
--->'''Freeza:''' I'm impressed, Vegeta. When did you graduate from Pull-Ups?\\
'''Vegeta:''' About the same time you got off the rag.
** Goku and Freeza do this in Episode 30:
--->'''Freeza:''' You're nothing but an overgrown monkey!\\
'''Goku:''' And you're nothing but an overgrown that thing Chi-Chi keeps in her drawer!
** Bulma and Vegeta in episode 34, as part of their BelligerentSexualTension. They even jumped straight to do the deed after almost 5 minutes of bickering. To put a short part:
--->'''Bulma:''' Don't you call me stupid!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Well, then how about ''bitch''!?\\
'''Bulma:''' Arrogant dick!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Spoiled sow!\\
'''Bulma:''' F*ck you!\\
'''Vegeta:''' F*ck you!\\
'''Bulma:''' ''F*ck you''!!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''F*CK''! '''YOU'''!
** Then they do.
* VomitDiscretionShot: Played straight, then immediately averted in episode 28. When Goku spins Freeza around holding him by his tail, Freeza doesn't make it a secret that he's going to puke. We don't get to see the actual moment... but we get to see, seconds later, [[ButtMonkey Krillin]] getting hit by, well, the unavoidable byproduct, projected at high speed across Namek. It's just a couple frames, before it zooms out to the whole planet and we get an update to the [[RunningGag Krillin Owned Count]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:W]]
* WarriorTherapist: Nappa claims that he majored in Child Psychology (WITH A MINOR IN PAIN!) and goes on about the values of healthy communication... right before pounding the crap out of the guy he was talking about (Tenshinhan) because they had interrupted him while he was talking to Vegeta.
** On a less literal note, Vegeta becomes something like this, though only to himself. During his finale of Episode 10 he remarks about the possible reason behind his TranquilFury, and later on, after revealing the depths of his humiliation to Cui and then blowing him up to ensure that he would never tell anyone of it, Vegeta says that he loves therapy, and later on deliberately represses the memory of Dodoria's revelations. Considering that his anger seemed to have broke in Episode 18, his self-therapy doesn't really seem to be working very well.
* WaxingLyrical: Vegeta occasionally quotes lyrics from "You're the Best Around"
* WeCanRuleTogether
-->[[spoiler:'''Dodoria''']]: You and I, we can team up against Freeza! Rule the universe...''as husband and wife''.\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''Repressing in 5!...4!...3!...2!...1!'' *BAM* ...And repressed.
** Zarbon later tries this (minus the proposal). Vegeta tells him [[CallBack he's already heard it]].
* WeHaveReserves:
-->''(whilst watching the Namekian warriors destroy Freeza's forces)''\\
'''Dodoria:''' ...Kinda killing our guys.\\
'''Freeza:''' Oh, we have more of those things back at the ship. It's not like we're losing anything valuable.
** Lord Slug goes through soldiers like copy paper.
* WellThisIsNotThatTrope: Played straight at the beginning of the Bardock special:
-->'''Narrator:''' Long ago, on a planet long forgotten by time, a young hero was born; a righteous Saiyan warrior who would bring peace to the galaxy. This... is ''not'' his story.
* WhamEpisode: Episode 24.
** Also Episode 31. In short summary, [[spoiler: Marron is actually an agent of the States' Fraud Bureau who put on an act to get Krillin to reveal his insurance fraud. Also, '''Popo kills Garlic Jr. before he got to do anything along with his minions''']]. Looks like we're headed straight into the Androids and Cell Saga earlier than expected.
* WhamLine: Episode 17:
-->'''Zarbon:''' [[spoiler: Well, I need to call my girlfriend.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [=LittleKuriboh=] auditioned for ''Ginyu'' originally. He ended up being cast as Freeza for the sole reason that his Freeza voice was so damn good.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: Goku launching his ship by pressing the exact same button Dr. Briefs told him ''[[ShmuckBait not]]'' to press.
--> Just don't press the '''start''' button. [slowly] The '''start''' button. ''Don't'' press... [[RuleOfThree the]] '''[[RuleOfThree start]]''' [[RuleOfThree button]].
* {{Whatever}}: Nail and Dende's response to being threatened with death by Freeza and Vegeta.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Minor one: Since in [[DeathByAdaptation this version]] Vegeta does kill off Captain Ginyu, why doesn't he show up at King Kai's planet with the other Ginyus? Unless he's still a frog in the afterlife of course.
** A lampshaded case is the wish to bring back everyone killed by Freeza and his men. Vegeta gleefully points out that this leaves out the villagers he killed.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[SuperFriends "We could use whales!]] [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} WHAAAALES!"]] [[BrickJoke 3 episodes later]], Nappa kills them.
-->'''Nappa:''' I sank their battleship! And their ''whales''.\\
'''Aquaman:''' [[BigNo Nooooooooooooo!]]
* WhatWouldXDo:
** Goku contemplates what Yamcha would do while fighting with Vegeta. Cut to a flashback of his unceremonious death. He moves up to Tien and uses the solar flare.
** Gohan tries to use his father as such an example. Cut to a flashback of "[[ParentalNeglect Bye, son!]]"
* WhosLaughingNow: Guldo, a few minutes before he's brutally murdered.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: As in the original series, Bulma makes this suggestion when Goku tells the group about the androids. Only Vegeta just shoots it down instantly, wanting the challenge.
* WorfBarrage: After a spiriting pep talk from Vegeta (who's in the afterlife), Goku fires up his kaioken and unleashes a devastating Kamehameha beam against Freeza, culminating in a massive explosion that looks like it could be felt for hundreds of miles. When the dust settles, Freeza is shown to have withstood the attack with some effort, but is mostly unscathed.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Gohan proposes such scientific strategies such as knocking down Ape Vegeta due to his weight ratio and escaping Dodoria due to his size and mass when it should be clear he is in the fantasy world of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.
** Goku even thought Vegeta's oozaru form would be slowed down due to the increased mass, and was in for a rude awakening when that wasn't the case.

[[folder:Y]]
* YankTheDogsChain: Team Four Star's fake Episode 2.
-->'''Vegeta:''' You got Vegetowned!
** Also, the end of [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas Tree of Might]]. Krillin gets a girlfriend, [[BrainlessBeauty Marron from filler]], but doesn't get to keep her as she's not canon.
** Gohan got books. He also got Icarus, but lost him for the same reason. Then he got him back for the Lord Slug movie. [[spoiler:Then Icarus gets eaten.]] And Icarus is back ''again'' for the upcoming Revenge of Cooler movie. Goku calls him emergency food.
* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: Parodied at the end of the Christmas Tree of Might special. [[spoiler: Ghost Nappa]] warns Vegeta that he will be visited by three ghosts. [[spoiler:They're all Ghost Nappa.]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: Said by Vegeta when his explosive technique didn't kill the heroes.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Invoked by Goku (of all people) against Freeza.
-->'''Goku:''' Do you know what a minute is?
-->'''Freeza:''' What? Of course I do.
-->'''Goku:''' I don't think you do.
* YouKilledMyFather: Dende gets a little of this when he refuses to heal a dying Vegeta because Vegeta helped annihilate Dende's entire species.
-->'''Dende:''' Oh, I'm sorry. I can't hear you over the blood of my people on your hands.
-->'''Vegeta:''' Oh no, do NOT be that guy right now.
-->'''Dende:''' Oh, I'm going to be that guy right now.
** Subverted, though, in that Dende is in fact convinced to do it, if only because Freeza is busy transforming into his most powerful form and Vegeta needed the power boost from almost dying to even have a hope of matching him.
--->'''Piccolo:''' Now go heal Vegeta.\\
'''Dende:''' Why would I do that?\\
''(Freeza shown mid transformation)''\\
'''Piccolo:''' Because that.\\
'''Dende:''' Oh yeah, that's happening right now.
* YourMom: Several. For instance, an offscreen extra does one toward Bardock when he tries to warn everyone that Freeza's going to blow up the planet.
-->'''Bardock:''' We need to raise an army!\\
'''Random Female Saiyan:''' YourMom's an army!
** From the same episode as the second Cui/Vegeta exchange:
--->'''Freeza Goon A:''' "Damn man, you couldn't hit the broad side of a space-barn!"\\
'''Freeza Goon B:''' "Yeah well that's only because I'm too busy hitting the broad side of YourMom!" *gets pwned by Gohan and Krillin*
** Vegeta to Cui:
--->'''Cui:''' Where are you off to in such a hurry?\\
'''Vegeta:''' Off to plow your mother.\\
'''Cui:''' Hah! Shows what you know, Vegeta! We reproduce asexually.\\
'''Vegeta:''' Gross. Out of my way.
** Then appears as a CallBack in the next episode:
--->'''Cui:''' I could have got here sooner, but I stopped on the way to ''plow your mother''!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ...[[InsultBackfire My mother's dead]].\\
'''Cui:''' [[CrossesTheLineTwice I know.]]
** A similar exchange happens between Vegeta and Final Form Freeza in episode 27. It's much less funny this time.
--->'''Freeza:''' Now that we're done here, its time to send you crying home to mommy.
--->'''Vegeta:''' (''Badly wounded'') My mother's... dead...
--->'''Freeza:''' I know.
* YouWillBeAssimilated: What Mr. Popo did to Blue Popo.
** Add [[spoiler: Garlic Jr. and presumably, his minions]] to the tally.

** [[spoiler: Dodoria's gender. Dodoria was referenced with male pronouns in "Bardock: Father of Goku" but is a woman in the series later on.]]
** [[spoiler:Cooler's reason for not blowing up Goku's ship. In "Bardock: Father of Goku" he says it is because he's a prick. In "Revenge of Cooler", it's because he wanted to wait and see if this would come back to bite his brother in the backside. Which, to be fair, does make him a prick.]]

*** And when Goku becomes a Super Saiyan he stumps Freeza once more: "I'm going to break you..." <crushes Freeza's hand> "...like a Kit-Kat bar!"

* Although the killing was interupted, Freeza uses a RunningGag as one to Vegeta.
