* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Budokai 1''. Transformations increase attack gradually at the cost of HEAVY ki drain (Just look at Goku's ki drain in Kaio- sorry, King Kai Fist x2 form in comparison to his Super Saiyan form.), all beam attacks like Kamehameha are instead large fireballs (Thekamehameha itself being coloured yellow), characters can revert back to their first forms if hit with low enough energy (Yes, this counts for ''Frieza and Cell as well.''), the story mode only goes up to the end of the Cell saga (though it has Great Saiyaman as a playable character) and having to buy Dragon Balls in Mr. Popo's shop rather than finding them in-game. On the other hand it is also the only game in the original trilogy to actually feature cutscenes in its story mode.

* NoExportForYou: There was a Special Edition of Budokai 2 that had a limited release only in Japan titled ''Dragon Ball Z 2V''. This version of the game made the Majin Frieza and Majin Cell outfits usable in versus mode. More notably, Frieza also had two special alternate costumes, His brother Cooler, and his son Kuriza from ''Manga/NekoMajin''. The story mode also had an extra chapter after the fight with Kid Buu. In it, Goku would team up with Tiencha to defeat the revived Raditz, Nappa, Recoome, Ginyu, and Dabura.

* SNKBoss: When playing as Goku, Budokai 3 has Cell. Before him, none of the previous bosses really stand too much of a chance (with the possible exception of Frieza in his full power form). Cell has more health than you, and is incredibly durable to most of the attacks that you have unlocked at this point. The Kamehameha sort of helps, but good luck landing a hit on him with it because he usually blocks it or moves out of its way.

* PanderingToTheBase: Not just the cast of characters (which includes guys like Broly in ''3'') but what attacks they have, such as Tien having his Dodonpa and Volley Ball Fist, which he never uses in the Z series, not to mention costumes. Its quite fun being able to transform Vegeta into his Super Saiyan 2 or Majin form in his old Saiyan Saga armour.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Little do people know, the "do" in Budokai actually has a long vowel due to the kanji it's used for, so the term in the title can also be spelled as "Budōkai" or "Budoukai" in romaji. Same applies to its sister series, ''[[VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokaiTenkaichi Budoukai/Budōkai Tenkaichi]]''.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Canonically, Goku has to be pure of heart to use the Spirit Bomb, and the anger of his Super Saiyan forms means he can't do said move. In the first two games, the Spirit Bomb ultimate is merely disabled when in Super Saiyan form. From ''Budokai 3'' onward though trying to do a Spirit Bomb in any Super Saiyan form instead results in him doing the semi hidden Dragon Fist ultimate instead. During the animation, Goku even says that the "Spirit Bomb's fading!". Its also a shout out to the ending of ''Super Android 13'' where Goku absorbs the Spirit Bomb into himself.
** The fact that all of Vegeta's outfits have a damaged variant when he goes into Majin Vegeta mode.
** You can get [=KOed=] if you fail the very first part of a Dragon Rush with low health (Wherein your opponent dodges your punch and kicks you to the ground.)
** 18's Accel Dance ultimate usually has her teaming up with 17 to beat the opponent senseless before breaking their arm. Doing it against 17 himself or while wearing 18's Buu saga outfit however has Krillin team up with 18.
** In ''Burst Limit'', if you have a Drama Scene and pick Raditz while playing as Goku, Raditz will comment on his brother's situation and Goku will tell him to go away.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The cover of the European version has Majin Spopovich on it, despite the fact that Spopovich doesn't appear in the game and in fact wouldn't appear in a DBZ game until Buu's Fury and not playable until Tenkaichi 3.

Not just that, but the back of the box has pictures of Majin Buu, Babidi, Dabura, and Majin Vegeta, none of whom appear in this game.
