So, what does this actually have to do with ''Dragon Ball''? Well, the dragon balls appear in the film, the characters have the names of ''Dragon Ball'' characters, and the dragon balls give the holder absolute power, and.....that's about it. It didn't do so hot with most.

* {{Expy}}: To an extent, this version of Goku is an expy of Clark Kent from Series/{{Smallville}}. Both are younger, angstier versions of classic superheroes, who, in the adaptation, [[IJustWantToBeNormal don't even want their super powers]] and pine after a specific girl until they gradually accept their role as hero.

** Oddly enough, the Kamehameha Wave itself. In the series the wave was an extremely powerful energy attack limited only by the user's power, but that was it. In the movie the wave can do basically anything. It's shown putting out and lighting fires, as well as somehow healing a character from near death.

** The Kamehameha is given the power to heal, which it didn't have [[Manga/DragonBall in the original series]].

* AdaptationalDyeJob: Played with in terms of Yamcha. Like his manga counterpart, he does indeed have naturally black hair, but appears to have dyed it blonde InUniverse.
** Bulma's once blue and or purple hair is reduced to a single streak on fully brunette hair.
* AdaptationExpansion: The surprisingly-decent video game of the film takes a few chances to expand upon the film and throw in a few more elements from the actual franchise. [[spoiler: In particular, in the secret bonus chapter of the story, Piccolo returns in a very Lord Slug-esque form of "Neo Piccolo", and as he dies for good, he utters a curse at Goku's true identity as a Saiyan. Even as the chapter closes, Chi-Chi mentions a new technique, jokingly stating it would be "a beam from her forehead".]]

* WhamLine: In the videogame, [[spoiler: Neo Piccolo]] drops a rather important word as he perishes.

*** She's even playable in the video game adaptation!



* AdaptationalWimp:

to:

** Bulma's once blue and or purple hair is reduced to a single streak on fully brunette hair.
* AdaptationalWimp:AdaptationalWimp: The whole level of power is reduced in the movie, probably to make it easier to film. Here's some specific examples:



*** The Oozaru is also much smaller and less destructive than it was ever depicted in the manga.



** Yamcha. While, as stated in AdaptationalBadass, he isn't as prone to being defeated, he also doesn't seem to posses Manga Yamcha's vastly superhuman abilities.
* AdaptedOut: The movie seems to be mostly an adaptation of the Demon King Piccolo arc of the manga with a little bit of Goku's backstory added in, so they could safely excise any of the bit characters from the other arcs. But still some major players in the DKP arc are still left out, Like Tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu, and perhaps most egregiously, Krillen.



* AnimeHair: Goku features a more {{downplayed}} realistic spin on this.



* {{Expy}}: To an extent, this version of Goku is an expy of Clark Kent from Series/{{Smallville}}. Both are younger, angstier versions of classic superheroes, who, in the adaptation, [[IJustWantToBeNormal don't even want their super powers]] and pine after a specific girl until they gradually accept their role as hero.



* TheGreys: Demon King Piccolo more resembles a green colored one of these than the sluglike Namekian of the manga and anime
