** 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 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, and went off the air in 2007.

*** IRONICALLY, 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.

* WordOfDante: 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.

* FanEdit: the slightly obscure but very well-received ''Dragon Ball Recut'', which removes as much filler from the anime adaptation as possible, similarly to what ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' was to ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. While some filler still remains, mainly that which is too tightly interwoven with the source material's story (i.e. the Pilaf gang's appearance in episode 1, where Mai is the one to explain how the Dragon Balls work instead of Bulma), the edit is still able to do a good job cutting the 153-episode anime down to a mere 82. The author of ''Dragon Ball Recut'' is also currently working on a similar filler-free edit of ''Dragon Ball Z'' and an edit of ''Dragon Ball Kai'' to remove whatever filler is still present there. Information about ''Dragon Ball Recut'' can be found on [[http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=34866 this]] ''Kanzenshuu'' thread.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: 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]].

* OrphanedReference: The Penguin Village episodes during the Red Ribbon arc. Because ''Manga/DrSlump'' [[NoDubForYou hasn't been given a proper English release]], some American viewers are scratching their heads.

** 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, {{Toriko}}, [[Manga/FairyTail Natsu]], [[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.
