** 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 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 releases in those regions, and the dubs went off the air in 2007.

** When Creator/FUNimation first took over the series, Creator/ChrisCason briefly voiced Tien and Mr. Popo. He left the show right before the Garlic Jr. saga, and Creator/JohnBurgmeier took over as Tien while Chris Sabat added Mr. Popo to his large roster of characters. Both roles were redubbed for the 2007 remastered release. Cason eventually returned to [=FUNimation=] and was even brought back in to voice Mr. Popo for ''Kai'', while Burgmeier kept voicing Tien.

*** This may become less the case in the future, as Chris Sabat of Funimation now possesses the entirety of the Anime/DragonBallZ audio, and a torrent was put out online by fans using inferior copies of this audio synced up to Japanese DVD footage of the series.

** The Original Broadcast Audio, audio for ''Dragon Ball'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' taken from VCR recordings of each episode's initial broadcast in the Kanto region of Japan. This audio is highly sought-out as it offers the closest quality to the show's master tapes, which Creator/ToeiAnimation wiped both for economic reasons and [[ExecutiveMeddling because executives at the time]] [[NewMediaAreEvil were still skeptical of home media]].

* CapcomSequelStagnation: The anime has been subject to a truly staggering number of home video re-releases in North America, many of them incomplete or flawed in some way so as to justify yet another re-release a couple years down the line. An extensive list can be found under the trope examples.

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor:
** Chi-Chi is known to be loud and obnoxious, but her voice actress Creator/CynthiaCranz is known to be a very nice and calm person.
** While Linda Young is a bit of a ReclusiveArtist, those who have worked with her say she is a very sweet lady, and would even bake cookies for the cast/crew, much different than her character Frieza.
** Chris Sabat is nothing like Vegeta or Piccolo. He's actually very nice and approachable to his fans.

* 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.
