** 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 BaseBreakingCharacter [[AmericansHateTingle in the West]]). Prior to Mr. Satan, Piccolo was believed to be Toriyama's favorite, as Toriyama had stated that, despite finding his HeelFaceTurn too cliché, he still managed to remain a cool character nonetheless.

*** Hilariously invoked in a bizarre and technical manner in ''Super'' in the FUNimation English dub, which has definitive portrayal Christopher Sabat voicing Vegeta talking to Creator/BrianDrummond from the short lived Ocean English dub but equally memorable voice of Vegeta as a copy of Vegeta in a meta MythologyGag, like the casting crew found this too good an opportunity to pass up. So we literally have two different Vegetas talking to each other.



*** Creator/PatriciaAcevedo voices Chi-Chi and Chiaotzu.

Added DiffLines:

*** For nearly all of the male Son family and other characters, it's possible for those who are indulgent enough in the Chinese dubs to make use of the Chinese-to-Japanese BilingualBonus to name them via their Chinese/pinyin names respectively: Son Goku -> Sun Wukong (see below why), Son Gohan -> Sun Wufan, Son Goten -> Sun Wutian, Tenshinhan -> Tianjinfan, and Muten Roshi -> Wutian Laoshi.
*** However, in both Goten and Roshi's case, it's also a case of NamesTheSame due to their names' pinyin readings being the same.

** 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.

** Also, Vegeta himself helped define the concept of TheRival archtype. You could most likely list some of the expies as much as you could the {{Rei|AyanamiExpy}} or {{Shana Clone}}s.
** And of course, Vegeta himself can be seen as an expy of Piccolo, and Piccolo an expy of Tenshinhan. 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.

*** In the [=FUNimation=] dub, Chris Sabat plays Vegeta, Piccolo, ''and'' Yamcha. While the latter doesn't have too much screen time, it doesn't change the fact that Sabat is talking to himself a majority of the time, especially through most of the Saiyan arrival scenes in the redub. Sabat also voices several other characters over the course of the series, including (but not limited to) Shenron, Nappa, Mr. Popo, Korin, Recoome, and Zarbon.

** 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.

** 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.

** ''Curse of the Blood Rubies'' adapts the first Dragon Ball hunt, with the original character King Gurumes 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 Piccolo Daimaoh 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.
