* CastingGag: For the Funimation English Dub, Creator/ChrisAyres reprises his role as Freeza. Given that fact, it's almost fitting that his younger brother Creator/GregAyres is the voice actor for Freeza's Universe 6 Counterpart, Frost.

** Goku is the direct base and inspiration of several of the shonen protagonists in this generation, including but limited to: [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto Uzumaki]], [[Franchise/OnePiece Monkey D. Luffy]], Manga/ZatchBell, Manga/{{Toriko}}, [[Manga/FairyTail Natsu Dragneel]], [[Manga/HunterxHunter Gon]], and Anime/{{Flint|TheTimeDetective}}. Besides the basic "lovable idiot" aspect of the character, his imitators also tend to copy several other character traits of his, such as his [[BloodKnight extreme love of fighting]], [[BigEater his equally big love of food]], [[AllLovingHero his immensely compassionate and unselfish nature]], his [[ChasteHero lack of sexual awareness]], and the [[AnimeHair improbable hairdo]]. More often than not, though, said expy would have his energy level [[MemeticMutation over 9000]]. This means, that every badass thing, no, every ''single'' thing, these guys do; it's because of Goku.

** The version of the latter half of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' as well as all of ''Anime/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' that aired in the UK and Canada made by the AB Groupe is another example of this; ''Dragon Ball Z'' had Saban's Ocean dub cast return, while ''Dragon Ball'' and ''Dragon Ball GT'' had their sister studio, Blue Water, dubbing them. These dubs were never officially released on home media as FUNimation had the rights for home video, and went off the air in 2007.

** Kushami (Japanese for "sneeze") for Lunch blonde form, Ranchi (the Japanese approximation of "Lunch") for her blue-haired form. The first was coined in early manga summaries before the series was translated, and they are/were ''very'' common {{Fanon}}.

*** Goku himself name-wise is a rip-off of [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest another character]] who used the name "Goku" ([[BilingualBonus albeit in Chinese via the same characters: 孫悟空]]) way beforehand via Chinese mythology.

** And of course, Vegeta himself can be seen as an expy of Piccolo, and Piccolo an expy of Tien. The three of them define TheRival archetype and are all [[AntiHero Anti-Heroic]], [[TheStoic cold]], [[IneffectualLoner loners]], [[{{Foil}} to show the contrast with]] [[TheHero the heroic]], [[HotBlooded loud]], and [[AllLovingHero friendly]] Goku.

* WordOfDante: The claims that the series was originally intended to end with the Saiyan or, more popularly, the Frieza Saga. This is actually a fandom invention as [[GodNeverSaidThat Toriyama never stated that.]] [[http://www.kanzenshuu.com/intended-end/freeza/ What he did say was]] he didn't intend for the series to last as long as it did or to explode in popularity the way it did.
