** Masako Nozawa voicing adult Son Goku with almost the exact same voice he had as a twelve-year old is uniquely charming. Masako Nozawa voicing his father Bardock is just {{egregious}}. A hardened, ruthless Saiyan warrior sounding like... ''this''? That's so unfitting, it's hilarious!

* Super Saiyan Goku's "I am" speech in the Funimation dub is hilariously bad. Not only because of the cheesy writing, but because it took the original point of the speech (Goku finally embracing his Saiyan heritage and making it clear he's not fighting for fun, but to ''murder Freeza in cold blood''), chucked it out of the window and replaced it with a generic, gaudy "I'm better than you because I'm the good guy" speech lifted straight out of an old ''Franchise/Superman'' comic.

* The "Big Green" dub of the ''Dead Zone'' movie (an infamous European dub of the ''Z'' movies which inexpiably renamed, among other thingd, "Piccolo" to "Big Green", hence the name) has this line uttered by BigBad [[FillerVillain Garlic Jr.]] when Kami appears to confront him:

* Creator/KyleHebert's deep narrator voice can sometimes lead to Narm, like in the episode ''Gohan Goes To Highschool'' where he says in his standard, Creator/DonLafontaine-esque tone, "Hurry, Gohan! You'd hate to be late to class..." This is immediately followed by the title card with the standard "guitar riff episode title" theme. Basically, a rockin' guitar riff set to white text saying "Gohan Goes To High School".

** There is also Goku's "realization" upon seeing Vegeta Great Ape form. Why the quotation? It's because in this version Goku apparently believes that ''Vegeta'' is the one who destroyed the World Tournament arena and murdered his grandfather. Putting aside the huge amount of FridgeLogic that comes out of this, this {{Bowlderisation}} turns the critical moment from Goku realizing that he is the one who murdered his grandfather into a NeverMyFault moment.

* In the Latin American Spanish dub, Freeza's line when he's about to make Krillin explode: "''No te muevas, ¿no ves que te voy a matar?''" ("Stay still, don't you see I'm going to kill you?!"). Then again, given that Freeza is considered his Latin American Spanish voice actor Creator/GerardoReyero's StarMakingRole for [[LargeHam how much ham he infused in it]], it might have been on purpose.

* Many English speaking fans consider Adult!Goku's Japanese voice {{Narm}}ful, finding it dissonant to hear a big bad martial arts guy (a grandfather in the end) speaking with almost the exact same voice he had as a twelve-year old. (But then, this may have been intentional.)

** It gets even more {{egregious}} when, in the end, she's the Seiyuu for every male member of the Son family except for Goku's brother Raditz, who has a '''deep baritone voice'''. [[WildMassGuessing Maybe Raditz isn't related to Goku after all!]]
