** Unlike the original where Goku's family remain HappilyMarried in spite of Goku's poor parenting, idiotic tendencies, and his Saiyan desire to simply fight and eat food, the abridged shows just how much strain is put on his family. He's quite apathetic to Gohan, often not realizing that he even had a kid, to the point that Piccolo makes for a better father. He also doesn't seem to understand the concept of love, treating Chi-Chi as a companion rather than a wife, not caring that she really wants her son to become something other than a fighter living off prize money. This ultimately culminates in not only Future Gohan seeing Piccolo as his real father, disowning Goku, but in the Abridged Broly Special, Chi-Chi wants a divorce because he doesn't care that Ox King has to spend a huge amount of money just to have Gohan enroll in college. Not surprising given how Goku was raised in the woods by Grampa Gohan with no outside contact until he met Bulma. It's not just Goku either: ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' shows that Saiyans in general are bad fathers. Raditz, who's treated as a joke in-universe, was neglected by Bardock and King Vegeta wasn't much better, resulting in Vegeta's own hang-ups which alienate him from most of the other Z-Warriors and even Bulma.

** Unlike the original where Goku's family remain HappilyMarried in spite of Goku's poor parenting, idiotic tendencies, and his desire to simply fight and eat food, the abridged shows just how much strain his idiocy and Saiyan traits put on his family. He is shown to be quite apathetic to his son Gohan, often not realizing that he even had a kid to the point that Piccolo actually treats him better as a father. He also doesn't seem to understand the concept of love so he treats Chi-Chi as a companion rather than a wife like she wished for, not caring that she really wants her son to become something other than a fighter living off prize money. This ultimately culminates in not only Future Gohan disowning Goku as his father and seeing Piccolo as his real one, but Chi-Chi also starts to consider divorcing him because he doesn't care for the fact that Ox King has to spend a huge amount of money just to have Gohan enroll in college.
*** Similarly, Chi-Chi's MyBelovedSmother and EducationMama traits that were PlayedForLaughs in canon end up having a negative impact on Gohan's psyche. Gohan ''is'' a genius with loads of potential, but he can only be pushed so far by the endless studying Chi-Chi makes him do. He's not allowed to act his age even when not fighting for the world, he's terrified of displeasing his mother because of her constant helicoptering, and he considers Piccolo and Krillin to be closer to him emotionally. It's very telling that Future Gohan eventually realized he could straight up fly away from Chi-Chi and never see her again.
** An omake that pits [[Anime/YuGiOh Yami Yugi]] against Perfect Cell has the monster take up Duel Monsters to challenge Yugi and when Yugi attempts to use cards that would easily net him a win, Cell ends up turning into a RulesLawyer and shoots down all of his trump cards, forcing Yugi to RageQuit.

** An omake Both Goku and Broly suffer brain damage after taking severe falls as infants. Goku becomes an idiot, which explains his lousy parenting, and Broly becomes a passive Saiyan until he's triggered by hearing "Kakarot" which turns him into his famous berzerker form.
** TeamFourStar has published several shorts depicting Cell being challenged by various characters, with the running gag being
that pits as impressive as they are, they're woefully unprepared.

** Sun ends up finally blowing up at Blake in Volume 4 because of her ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies ideals, stating that their foes can hurt them badly, but it's her constant running away that hurts her friends the worst because she's making the decision to run away and stay away from them without seeing how it will hurt them.

* Something that's ignored in the actual series is that, in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', characters seem to actually ignore physical weapons because of their insane power levels. In ''The World's Strongest'', where Krillin freaked and ran after being attacked by a Gatling Gun in the actual movie, here he just looks confused and idly wonders where someone disappeared off to. In ''Broly The Legendary Super Saiyan'', where in the original movie Broly is stabbed repeatedly as a baby and is left to die as a baby, here the knife breaks after a failed attempt to stab him and he's just left alone in annoyance.
