* AuthorsSavingThrow: Goku and Chi-Chi's sex scene in episode 55 was criticized for coming across as borderline rape (on Chi-Chi's part). Come the next episode, Krillin lampshades this and Goku makes it clear that Chi-Chi has his full consent and that he enjoys it. He equates it to an endurance test.

** As mentioned on BrokenBase, some people didn't like the way Goku's and Chi-Chi's marriage was portrayed on the ''Broly'' special, as it broke the assumption that - despite her complaining - Chi-Chi and Goku loved each other. Episode 57 begins with a heartfelt talk between Goku and Chi-Chi that proves that TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther, implying that the films are not set in the same canon as the main series.

** The Yamcha from Trunks' timeline [[spoiler: hanged himself]], which is either this or just plain tasteless. Also Bulma and Vegeta [[spoiler: having audible sex]] later in the same episode. Especially the aftermath.

** Shortly after the release of "Super Android 13," containing a few jokes about terrorists, came the November 13, 2015 attacks in Paris.
** We have pretty much a world record with the Anime/DragonBallSuper short "Burning Blue" with Trunks cleaving Merged Zamasu in half with his Spirit Sword. Shortly after, [[spoiler: Zamasu is NotQuiteDead and [[KillEmAll kills mostly everyone in Future Trunks' timeline]].]] [[BlackComedy Though if you want to]] [[HilariousInHindsight be really dark about it...]]

** In episode 25, Freiza is beating up Krillin, causing him to get two 1-ups. He would actually come back from the dead twice, once as a cyborg via his father King Cold, and a second time in ''Resurrection F''.
** In ''Revenge of Cooler'', Mr. Popo casually creates a new sun after Goku accidentally destroys the old one. In ''Resurrection F'', almost three years later, it is revealed that such a feat is even beyond Beerus and Whis. In short, Team Four Star retroactively made Mr. Popo leagues more powerful than the strongest characters in canon.

** Goku has stated that he doesn't like grapes. Fast forward to 2015, when a Japanese beverage company called Kirin Mets released two commercials promoting ''Resurrection F''. The heroes represented one flavor while the villains represented the other. Guess which one the villains represented.

** Krillin manages to stall Nappa during their fight in Episode 9 by pointing out it's his turn, then proceeds to do nothing, effectively bringing the battle to a crashing halt. Sans would use a similar tactic in the genocide route of VideoGame/{{Undertale}}.

** Vegeta and Bulma's SlapSlapKiss relationship. Vegeta at one point says, "You're bitchier than usual, and not in a hot way!" implying that Vegeta is usually turned on by Bulma acting like a bitch. Come Dragon Ball Super, and Vegeta explains to Goku that the reason they put up with their respective wives is because Saiyans are naturally attracted to bitchy women, and all Saiyan women were like that. Piccolo is shocked at how much sense that makes.

** Also, Creator/MasakoX's Goku is somehow the perfect synthesis of Masako Nozawa, Sean Schemmel, and even Peter Kelamis' previous portrayals... And, like Nozawa, he does double duty as Young/Old Goku and Gohan... and manages to make Young Goku and Gohan sound distinct from each other.

* UncannyValley: With Team Four Star using Goku's Super Saiyan skin shading with his black eyes of his normal form in Episode 54, with Cell having his face, there's something that... doesn't seem right about it.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: Despite being a villain, Raditz does get more than his fair share's worth of crap. It doesn't help that Bardock was a pretty negligent father.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Gohan when it comes to his problems with his father, since he's shown to be angry with Goku for being absent since was four and sees Piccolo as more of a father for being around more, but he seems to disregard the fact that Goku was '''dead''' during that time because Piccolo killed him which unlike canon wasn't a HeroicSacrifice it was flat out murder. However, it's worth considering [[FridgeBrilliance that he didn't see what happened, and had to rely on whatever Piccolo told him.]] This gets turned UpToEleven in Masako's ''Goku's Gonna Show You'' series. Gohan constantly seems to take delight in Goku's misery and sadness in the games, which have shown to traumatize him. So much so that some have claimed that [[spoiler: Gohan's battle against Cell is LaserGuidedKarma.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Any and all interactions between Vegeta and Future Trunks in the Android / Cell saga tend to have at least an element of this, given Vegeta's [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood hilariously abusive]] treatment of his son. It takes a special kind of asshole to tell your own son to his face "I don't listen to bastards", and hearing it prompts a final shift from Piccolo being a DrillSergeantNasty to Gohan to basically being a better father to him than Goku, just so he doesn't turn out like Trunks and Vegeta.

** On Christmas day 2016, part one of ''Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan Abridged'' was released (the full movie being released later in January next year), finally answering the infamous question, "Wen Broly?" Around the same time the full movie came out, ''Dragon Ball Super'' released a trailer for the upcoming "Universe Survival Saga", which included a brief scene of a female Legendary Super Saiyan from Universe 6, the first canon instance of the form in the main series.

** As of the Broly special, people are beginning to argue whether or not the "Goku sucks as a father" joke are still funny and are in jest, or are becoming hateful and [[AuthorTract preachy]] and if they cast doubt as to whether TFS truly likes him or not. Similarly, a some people find the "I want a divorce" joke funny, while others don't like it, since it breaks the assumption that - despite her complaining - Chi-Chi was HappilyMarried.
