* DubNameChange: Averted in the released version, but apparently part of Funimation's original plan for this show was to eliminate the last syllable from the aliens' names (Keroro becoming simply Kero) and have Earth be known intergalactically as "Planet Wuss" and humans as "Wussians". Funimation likely abandoned this due to negative feedback on the changes.
** Although they change one name... sort of. Giroro's cat doesn't have a name at all in the original (everyone calls her "neko"; "cat" or "kitten"), but the dub calls her Miss Furbottom. In addition, Dasonu*Maso becomes the Dance*Master, because the pun doesn't even sort of work in English.

* GagDub: Funimation pretty much took the same approach as they did with ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'' for this dub.

The characters also follow the ThirdLawOfGenderBending to various degrees, with them all dressing as girls, and quickly becoming used to being girls, in spite of Keroro's initial shock, and Giroro's continuous denial. Giroro and Dororo even completely change their speech patterns to more feminine ones, while Keroro boasts to the player about how she makes a perfect girl in her self description.

** Somewhere around volume 11 or 12 of the English edition of the manga, Tokyopop switched from using "Kururu" to "Kululu". This could have been due to a switch in translators, or the Japanese finally decided to settle some R/L confusion and told them how to transliterate it (they do that sometimes).
** Angol Mois' name [[strike:is]] was spelled "Moa" almost exclusively on this page... despite the fact that in her debut episode her name is spelled out in English as "Angol Mois".
*** Really a problem with transliteration. Her name is a pun off of the Nostradamus prophecy called "angolmois", but since Japanese phonetics are much simpler than French ones, it was simplified into "Moa".
*** It's worth pointing out that Tokyopop got this one wrong too, they still spell it "Moa", making this something of a case of poor research on their part.

* DestroyerDeity: Angol Moa has come to Earth to destroy it, in accordance with Nostradamus' prophecies. Fortunately, she's one of the sweetest girls you could meet, so convincing her to forgo the plan isn't too hard. ''Unfortunately'', she's also rather flighty and doesn't fully understand the implications of her role, so she's prone to offering to destroy the world as a solution to any minor difficulty the other characters are having at the moment.

** American Keroro says "de arimasu" after ''one'' episode's title, [[ThrowItIn just for the hell of it]].
