*** Though YMMV, the original script was found [[http://thedaoofdragonball.com/pdfs/dragonball-evolution-original-script.pdf here]] and has alternate versions of the Nameks, Pilaf, Krillin, Puar, Suno, and Oolong, though it also adds a convoluted backstory involving an in-universe popular gaming franchise based on their real world battles with Piccolo.

** Piccolo was originally going to look more human. James Marsters, being a fan of the series, [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks knew this wouldn't go over well with fans]], so when the director left the set one day, he had make-up applied behind his back. Thankfully, the director [[ThrowItIn went with it]].

** [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/f/ff/Oozaru_hiphopargento.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100325191634 The Oozaru was originally going to look different]]. Early models show the Oozaru looking more like a mix between [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Groot]] and [[Film/LordOfTheRings an Orc]]. However, in the final product, it looked more ape-like, like in the series.

** While James Marsters was without a doubt one of the most praised things about the film, Creator/RonPerlman was the original choice. and one can't help but Squee at that.

* CreatorsApathy: Ramsey admitted in a 2016 apology letter to have gone into the film "as a businessman" and "not a fan" of DragonBall (whether this means he was a fan and just didn't care, or he was not a fan, period, isn't entirely clear).

* ConvertedFanboy: James Marsters watched the anime to study his character. Afterwards, he started referring to the anime as "the coolest television cartoon in the last 50,000 years."

* PromotedFanboy: James Marsters referred to the anime as "the coolest television cartoon in the last 50,000 years."
** This is a unique case. Marsters watched the anime ''after'' getting the role of Piccolo in order the study the character.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script mentioned under TheyJustDidntCare was apparently a ''much'' more faithful adaptation of the series. But once it was out of the scriptmaker's hands, ''changes'' were made.

Ironically enough, the film that ''Dragon Ball'' fans love to hate was ultimately responsible for getting ''Akira Toriyama'', a ''notoriously'' apathetic creator, to actually care about the franchise he started. Had he not been so leery of other people's treatment of his work after ''Evolution'', he might never have taken charge of ''Battle of Gods'' after seeing the initial DarkerAndEdgier script treatment, and neither ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' nor the upcoming ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' would ever have existed. Perhaps fans ought to be at least a ''bit'' thankful this movie exists.
