* CreatorsFavorite: Mr. Satan. Creator/AkiraToriyama admits that Satan is one of his favorite characters and he gets a lot of focus in the Buu Arc. However, he's very popular (especially in the Japanese fandom, he's more of a BaseBreaker [[AmericansHateTingle in the West]]).

** Androids 19 and 20 were originally meant to be the Big Bads of the Android saga. But almost immediately following the release of their introductory chapter, Toriyama's former editor, Kazuhiko Torishima, got in touch with him just to basically laugh at him for making the new and much-hyped villains be a fatso and an old geezer. Which resulted in Toriyama creating Androids 17 and 18... which Torishima ''also'' didn't like on account of being brats, prompting Toriyama to create Cell... Which his then-current editor, Yuu Kondou, didn't like the design of, making him push Toriyama into giving Cell the ability to transform... However, Kondou thought Cell's second form just looked moronic, so he pressed Toriyama into quickly unveiling Cell's cooler, perfect form.
** Goku's role as lead was intended to be retired in the Cell Saga, with the torch being passed to Gohan. Toriyama later changed his mind and brought Goku back to life again.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In Japan, [[Creator/KenjiUtsumi Shenron, Commander Red, the Tenkaichi Budokai announcer, and Recoome]] are [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Raoh & Kaioh]].
** The Creator/FUNimation dub was their first major import, using hometown voice actors - everything they've done since mostly draws from this same pool.
** In Mexico, this went to a whole other level. Goku's voice actor is so very recognizable to the point where some people can't watch other dubbed shows (or movies starring Creator/BruceWillis) without referring to a character as "Hey, that's Goku!".
** In Brazil, Goku and Chichi got married again... as [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Shining Armor and Princess Cadance]].
** In Portugal, Bulma and King Kai are respectively [[Anime/SailorMoon Artemis and Luna]].

* TheArtifact: [[DubNameChange Terms and character names introduced]] with the 1996 ''Dragonball Z'' dubs that Funimation produced while under Saban have been retained due to their ubiquity with the English-speaking crowd. Saiyan[[note]]Saiyajin[[/note]], Master Roshi[[note]]Muten Roshi[[/note]], Tien[[note]]Tenshinhan[[/note]], and several attack names[[note]]The attack names would be untranslated in the uncut versions of ''DragonBallKai''[[/note]] such as Destructo Disc[[note]]Kienzan[[/note]] and Special Beam Cannon[[note]]Makkankosappo[[/note]] have been ingrained in the English dubs. These terms have been used as recently as the 2015 movie ''DragonBallZResurrectionF''. Notable aversions are Kaiohken, which was changed from being pronounced "KAY-OH-KEN" to the correct "KYE-OH-KEN" starting in ''DragonBallKai'' and Guru to Grand Elder.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledScript: The ''Dragon Ball'' movies are all very loose adaptations of story arcs from the original manga and TV series.
** ''Curse of the Blood Rubies'' adapts the first Dragon Ball hunt, with the original character King Gurume substituting Emperor Pilaf as the ultimate antagonist.
** ''Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle'' starts off with a sub-plot involving Goku and Krillin being sent to find the titular Princess ([[spoiler:eventually revealed to be a precious diamond]]) for Master Roshi, just like when they were sent to find a cute girl for Roshi in the manga.
** ''Mystical Adventure'' combines the Red Ribbon Army and 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai arcs and puts them in an entirely different context.
** The ''Lord Slug'' movie matches the plot of the King Piccolo arc. An evil Namekian wishes for his youth and power. This one is painfully obvious.
** And the tenth anniversary movie ''Path to Power'' retells the first arc of the first search of the Dragon Balls, but with the Red Ribbon Army as the main antagonists.
