-->'''Roshi''': How can you say such things, when it was you who brought our world peace again? If not your training, Goku would never have attained the level of skill he has now. Junior would have won! And if the Dragon Balls hadn't been forged, none of these young warriors would have ever met. And I can't begin to count the number of people who owe their lives to these kids! When their quest began, they were just children. But they soon grew into heroes. When the world needed saving, eight kids answered the call. One ball; that's how it all began.

* After Goku defeats Piccolo Jr., Kami laments that he has not accomplished anything significant during his reign as Guardian of the Earth and he had to rely on mortals to save the day. Master Roshi points out that had Kami hadn't trained Goku, he would never have been strong enough to defeat Piccolo Jr., and if he had never created the Dragon Balls, Bulma would have never gone on a journey and met Goku, met Yamcha, Roshi, etc. If it wasn't for Kami, none of them would have met and become the heroes they are today. Touched, Kami tells Goku that Roshi is a wise man indeed.

* The climax of the 22nd Tenka'ichi Budokai in the anime, which led to the fight been taken ''a few miles outside the arena'' but ended in Tenshinhan (while completely unconscious) barely winning the match because Goku was unfortunate to land first (he flew a van), the ''entire audience'' vacates the arena and runs towards the two combatants to applaud them. Later, a large man offers to hold Tenshinhan on his shoulders, claiming he must be exhausted from the fight. Keep in mind just hours before, Tenshinhan was very much the biggest {{Heel}} seen in a Tenka'ichi Budokai thus far and only [[HeelFaceTurn changed his ways]] during the fight with Goku. The same is almost done with Goku, and the two are brought closer together to congratulate each other, and they just smile at each other. Even Krillin was getting teary-eyed.

Added DiffLines:

** His reunion with the gang in general is one, as it dawns on them that the little boy they knew is now a grown man. It's even more emotional in [[https://youtu.be/B4pFpsR0BQ4?t=52 the Japanese version]] where Masako Nozawa continues portraying him into adulthood, showing that despite his physical growth he's still that boy at heart.

* After King Piccolo's defeat, Bulma is wishing to Shen Long to revive their friends slain by the demons when Yamcha amends her: to revive ''all'' their victims.
** One among the victims provide another one: it's Man-Wolf, whose human form was [[{{Gonk}} so ugly]] that everybody believed he'd never find a girlfriend... And yet the scene of his resurrection shows he ''did'' once he was unstuck from the wolf form that kept him from asking a girl out, and he did it in the few days between the last Tenkaichi and being killed by Tambourine.

* There's something about Goku and Krillin's reunion in the original series episode, "Changes." Krillin had been revived by Goku three years prior but never got a chance to thank him.

* The title page of the final chapter of the manga is a rendering of young Son Goku and Bulma's first meeting. Toriyama's art style has clearly evolved over the 9 or so years Dragon Ball started, but it was a neat throwback to where it all began.

* Bulma and Yamcha's relationship. The original series shows that they loved each other dearly despite their differences. They were an OfficialCouple for the first series and the first arcs of DragonBallZ. Even after their break-up, Yamcha and Bulma are still close as AmicableExes, as seen when Bulma is comforted by Yamcha after she learns of Vegeta's death when fighting Majin Buu.

* Near the beginning of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, Yamcha, Krillin, and Goku ask Master Roshi if he brought them uniforms to wear, like he always used to. Master Roshi says no. He says that because they've all grown up and so vastly surpassed him, they don't have to wear his colors anymore. Cue the reveal that all three of them (separately) saw this coming, and each came prepared with his own custom-made copy of the Turtle Hermit uniform. They honor their teacher not because they have to, but because they choose to.

* Tenshinhan's victory at the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai. This entire tournament has put Ten through the wringer: he's here for the sole purpose of beating the Kame School martial artists, but when they find out Goku killed Tao Pai Pai, Tenshinhan's role model and his master's younger brother, the goal becomes to kill Goku. At the same time, he shows a sincere desire to win the tournament and test his strength. He brutalizes Yamcha well beyond necessity for a friendly tournament, breaking his leg, but stops short of killing him, because then he'd be disqualified. Jackie Chun (Master Roshi in disguise) forfeits their match, after talking to Tenshinhan a bit and trying to convince him that he has more potential than just being Tsurusennin's bully. Tenshinhan is stunned by this, because while Tsurusennin's goal is to humiliate Roshi and his students, Roshi's is to encourage his students' improvement by the experience and the reminder that there's always someone stronger. Tenshinhan fights Goku next, and Goku, being Goku, gives him a run for his money. Halfway through, Goku starts shouting at Tenshinhan to stop cheating. Tenshinhan scoffs at this, but eventually he realizes Tsurusennin is forcing Chaozu to incapacitate Goku psychichally. Goku apologizes once Tenshinhan demands to be able to fight Goku fairly, because he realizes he wants to test his strength and improve more than he wants revenge or to be an assassin like Tao Pai Pai. Ten is still in shock, because his refusal to kill Goku and insistence on fighting fairly has amounted to a betrayal of his master, but he allows Goku to beat him down for a bit without fighting back, to make up for the blows he landed with Chaozu's help. This tournament, he says, is all he has left now. He uses his strongest attack to destroy the ring, warning Goku to dodge it because he doesn't want to kill him, reasoning that if there's no ring and Goku can't fly, he'll lose by ring out as soon as he dodges, since Tenshinhan ''can'' fly. Goku manages to use a Kamehameha to propel himself into Tenshinhan and injure him enough that they're both in freefall. Goku crashes into a truck and lands first, losing by ring out. The entire crowd runs over to cheer and congratulate them, Tenshinhan and Goku are hoisted on people's shoulders to greet each other, and Tenshinhan is awed by the ''positive'' attention. Master Roshi assures him he's earned it, now that he sees how much better it is to seek to improve yourself than to vanquish enemies. For bonus points, Yamcha is the first one to start the applause for Tenshinhan. Tenshinhan tries to give Goku half the prize money later, and quietly apologizes to Yamcha, once Yamcha congratulates him again. It's an exhaustive HeelFaceTurn, and surprisingly emotive, especially if you've come from DBZ first.
