* MoralEventHorizon:
** Mercenary Tao crossed it for many when he killed Upa's father, Bora, for no particular reason. He then threatened Upa, saying he should be thankful that he's still alive. There is also the underline fact that he had no problem taking a contract to kill a twelve years old boy, super-strong or not.
** Commander Red, when he fully admits using his army to gain the Dragon Balls so he can wish to be taller. The fact that his pettiness led to the deaths of not only his men, but countless of innocents who were just caught in the crossfire had many people [[KickTheSonOfABitch cheering when Officer Black put a bullet in his head]]. [[HarsherInHindsight There is also the extra bitterness of knowing that his actions are what leads to Dr. Gero actions]] in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.
** Officer Black goes too far after he decides to destroy the entire Red Ribbon Army base just so he can kill Goku. There were still many soldiers left on the base and this comes after he gets on Red for needlessly throwing away lives.
** The Crane Hermit becomes completely irredeemable after he tries to murder his own students because they refused to kill an opponent who couldn't fight back.
** King Piccolo, it's impossible to know exactly ''when'' he crossed the line. His first rampaged led to the deaths of millions of humans including Master Roshi's teacher and [[CorruptTheCutie corrupted the Crane Hermit]]. As soon as he is released, he sends Tambourine to murder all the martial artists in the world so no one can used the Evil Containment Wave on him again. He directly murders Chiaotzu and destroys Shenron so the Dragon Balls can't be used against him. He then takes over the world, frees all the prisoners, and abolished all laws so he can watch humanity tears itself apart. Even with all of that, he plans to have a lottery for the thirty-six years where he will destroy one section of Earth.
** King Piccolo's son, Tambourine, crosses it when he kills Krillin and brags about it to Goku. He then goes on to murder at least fifty martial artists, including a scene in the anime where he murders King Chappa and all his students in cold-blood.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Not technically in the show itself, but in the FUNimation theme song: "Rising, rising, mesmerizing, unbridled ecstasy!"

** For some, the Pilaf gang freeing Demon King Piccolo from the rice cooker he was imprisoned in just show they can share in his conquest. Before that they had never done anything especially bad (except try to kill Goku and friends and they were laughably incompetent at doing so anyway).

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticBadass: Monster Carrot's StoryBreakerPower is often brought up by fans to point out that he could theoretically defeat any opponent. Nevermind that he's a spineless coward, if he can so much as touch an opponent he instantly wins.

Added DiffLines:

* ArcFatigue: While not as bad as the Z arcs, the Red Ribbon Army arc is the longest pre-Z arc and can take quite some time to sit through, particularly in the anime where there is a plethora of filler to drag it out even longer.

** Master Roshi: At the start of the series, he is stronger than Goku. He even beats Goku during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament. By the Piccolo Jr. Saga, he is DemotedToExtra, and he stays that way through ''Z''.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: The manga is considered as such by many fans as well as professional mangaka (such as Eichiiro Oda), many citing it as not only a great influence but also the reason they got into manga in the first place and a milestone.
