* Anime/DragonBallZ's "It's over NINE THOUSAND!!!", thanks to MemeticMutation, has become one of the most (in)famous pieces of {{Narm}}s of all time. While the Ocean Group version of the line is better known, the Funimation version (which is the version Team Four Star chose to parody) is pretty silly itself, although that might have been done on purpose to lightly parody the original version.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY3jXkqrJvg This odd conversation]] in the Ocean dub. Nappa's face doesn't help.
-->'''Vegeta''': Nappa, remind me to look into having you dewormed again.\\
'''Nappa''': ''(smiling)'' I don't have worms!
* Cell's reaction to Goku giving him a Senzu bean before fighting Gohan during the Cell Games: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=EB5SSuOypT4#t=56s "Thank you Goku, I will take this bean without hesitation!"]] It's the MotorMouth delivery that sells it.
* The sheer amount of ridiculous edits and dialogues done in the Ocean dub just to cover up the deaths, regardless of logic, caused it to become a full-on SoBadItsGood comedy because of how ridiculous it is.
** Every time a character threatens to send someone [[NeverSayDie "to another dimension!"]]
** When Nappa decides to blow up an entire city full of people, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBFX8y4VrkI he claims that the entire inhabitants have somehow evacuated]] despite the fact that previously there were a load of baffled crowds watching them. ''In two seconds?'' Talk about OutrunningTheFireball.
** When Nappa destroys a plane that is full of people which we explicitly see, Nappa decides to blow up the plane in it and unfortunately they couldn't do the "Cargo Robot" excuse so they covered it up with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl4ghsv04V0 Tien claiming that he saw parachutes so they're okay]], except that there is nothing resembling a parachute at all let alone seeing them managing to retreat safely away. Perhaps Tien require a fourth eye just to see things more clearly.
** Nappa saying [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_xoxwMFJ0I "Bus stop to the next dimension!"]] during his fight with the Z Warriors. Perhaps Goku should have traveled by bus on his way to meet King Kai.
** There's also Goku's "realization" upon seeing Vegeta's Great Ape form. Why the quotation? It's because in this version, Goku apparently believes that ''Vegeta'' is the one who destroyed the World Tournament arena and killed his grandfather. Putting aside the huge amount of FridgeLogic that comes out of this, this {{Bowdleris|e}}ation turns the critical moment from Goku realizing that ''he'' was the one responsible for Grandpa Gohan's death into a NeverMyFault moment.
* This line from Trunks from the English dub of ''Z'':
--> "If they set that android free, it will be the end of all of us!! [[BigNo NOOOOOOOO!!!]]"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjL8YVSewPc The dramatic music makes it even more funny.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_OHe6GKLKY Even Narmier in the Ocean Dub version.]]
* Many English speaking fans consider Adult!Goku's Japanese voice {{Narm}}ful, finding it dissonant to hear a full-grown martial artist (a grandfather in the end) speaking with almost the exact same voice he had as a twelve-year old. This is intentional, however.
** Masako Nozawa voicing adult Son Goku with almost the exact same voice he had as a twelve-year old is uniquely charming. Masako Nozawa voicing his father Bardock is just JustForFun/{{egregious}}. A hardened, ruthless Saiyan warrior sounding like... ''this''? That's so unfitting, it's hilarious!
** In the end, she's the Seiyuu for every male member of the Son family except for Goku's brother Raditz, who has a '''deep baritone voice'''. [[WildMassGuessing Maybe Raditz isn't related to Goku after all!]]
* Frieza tries to intimidate Krillin:
--> '''Frieza:''' You cut off my tail, you imbecile, and '''now I'm going to eat you!'''
* The AB Groupe dub, better known for as the "Big Green" dub, is infamous for its awfulness and its BlindIdiotTranslation. It is also hilarious for the wrong reasons.
** The ''Dead Zone'' movie has this line from Garlic Jr. when Kami appears to confront him:
---> '''Garlic Jr.''': Good lord, it's God!
** From the same version, Garlic Jr's [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Spice Boys]] are impossible to take seriously. While there's an element of parody with most evil minions in the ''Dragon Ball'' franchise, giving one of them a voice that sounds like an evil version of [[Series/TheMuppetShow Fozzie Bear]] doesn't help much.
** ChewingTheScenery is a must in the ''Z'' movies, especially from villains.
*** [[https://youtu.be/jtMtuWDRIHs?t=9m1s I shall give you the honor of observing]][[LargeHam my METAMORPHOSIS!!!"]]
*** [[https://youtu.be/AsRcEBUsur0?t=26s I'M ORDERING YOU AND YOUR SON TO DISAPPEAR! GET OUUUT!]]
** [[https://youtu.be/-1YN_pOo_UM?t=2m20s Clearin completely forgets who the tall green alien guy that's fought alongside him since the start of the series is.]] What was his name again?
** A lot of what the narrator says are BlatantLies.
--->''[From "Cooler's Revenge"]''\\
'''Narrator''': Goku's father, Bardock, showed up just in time to foil [Frieza's] plans and take him on in hand-to-hand one-on-one combat. It's no holds barred and neither one will leave this fight unhurt.
--->''[From "The History of Trunks"]''\\
'''Narrator''': Big Green had perished. Vegituh, Yamcha, Tenshin, and Clearin, they had survived.
** MotorMouth is a serious disease in this dub. Take [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4k0JgxCgTc this clip]] for example.
--->'''Paragus''': I must tell you mykeenestdesirehasalwaysbeentocreateanewPlanetVegituhafterFreezerdestroyedouroldonethirtyyearsagoyouwillrecall.

I can tell you that my sacredmissionmygreatdreamwillatlasttakeshape and be realized.
* Goku's [[{{Padding}} five minute]] transformation into Super Saiyan 3 is also rather infamous. Awesome, yes, but infamous.
* Super Saiyan Goku's "I am" speech in the Funimation dub of ''Z'' is hilariously bad. Not only because of the cheesy writing, but because it took the original point of the speech (Goku finally embracing his Saiyan heritage and making it clear that he's not fighting for fun, but to ''kill Frieza''), chucked it out of the window and replaced it with a generic, gaudy "I'm better than you because I'm the good guy" speech lifted straight out of an old ''{{Franchise/Superman}}'' comic.
--> '''Goku:''' I am the Hope of the Universe. I am the answer to all living things that cry out for peace. I am protector of the innocent. I am the light in the darkness. I am truth. Ally to good! Nightmare to you!
* The way Frieza is beaten by Goku on Namek. As Goku is flying off and leaving the bisected Frieza behind, Frieza starts screaming "I will make you pay for opposing the MOST POWERFUL BEING IN THE UNIVEEEEEEEEEEERSE!" and shooting a beam of energy at Goku. Goku turns around, screams "YOU FOOOOOL!", and blasts it back. Then Frieza's face and the way he's screaming makes it look like he's having an ImmodestOrgasm. Also, Frieza says that he's "the most powerful being in the universe" about five times throughout that scene despite the fact that he's dying.
* Before that, there was the scene in which Frieza sent one of his Death Saucers at Goku. The camera spins around and around him while he's laughing.
* "You think I'm stupid enough to fall for such a childish TRICK?!!!!" The way Frieza screams "trick" and the way his eyes bug out are hilarious.
* This line by Captain Ginyu in the original dub as Goku is powering up to what was then considered insane levels.
-->'''Ginyu:''' "One hundred thousand?! Ay-yi-yi! I wasn't counting on this!"
* Also during the Frieza Saga: Vegeta awakens from a much-needed nap and then finds the Dragon Balls missing and the dragon summoned. His reaction to the sight of the monstrous Porunga in the initial dub? To proclaim "Holy Cosmos!" and "That's one whopper of a lizard!"
** Really, Vegeta in the early days of Funimation's dub was full of narm. Granted, Sabat was just starting off as Vegeta, but his Brian Drummond impression practically reeked with narm. Thank goodness he eventually found a more unique and better voice for the Saiyan prince.
** Later episodes would give us such gems as "Great galaxies!" and "Son of a Namek!"
* Vegeta's [[SoBadItsGood best comeback ever]]:
-->'''Android 18:''' How sad, to work so hard for... so little.\\
'''Vegeta:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZq3An7Tf_w SAD FOR YOUUUUUU!!!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjW0wLl52L0 And this]] is Vegeta's ''second'' best comeback ever, from ''GT''.
-->'''Super 17:''' I have to admire your ability to get up after a hit like that.\\
'''Vegeta:''' And I admire your ability to ''DIE!''
* A notable gem in the English dub is when Piccolo finishes his fusion with Nail. Piccolo's dialogue during this scene resembles an overexcited sports player pumping himself up.
** How does ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' make fun of this scene? [[SpoofedWithTheirOwnWords By not changing a single thing about it]]. And takes it to NeverLiveItDown territory by referencing it during [[https://youtu.be/3nYNo7B3esY?t=3m their take of Piccolo and Kami fusing.]]
* When Gohan is practicing with the Z-Sword, his practice basically includes swinging it wildly over a lake. But then occasionally, he'll stop what he's doing, hold the sword over his head, point to it, and scream, "''HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!''"
* Creator/KyleHebert's deep narrator voice can sometimes lead to Narm, like in the episode ''Gohan Goes To Highschool'' where he says in his standard, Creator/DonLafontaine-esque tone, "Hurry, Gohan! You'd hate to be late to class..." This is immediately followed by the title card with the standard "guitar riff episode title" theme. Basically, a rockin' guitar riff set to white text saying "Gohan Goes To High School". Doubly funny because [[TalkingToHimself Kyle Hebert is talking about Kyle Hebert]].
** The opening narration for one of the Cell saga episodes, picking up after Cell absorbed almost the entire population of a city. It went something like this:
--> "Just another ordinary, peaceful morning in a quiet little town, right? [[SuddenlyShouting WRONG.]]
* The English dub of ''Kai'' has Raditz shrieking "NOW DIIIIIIIIIIIIIE!!" before trying to kill Gohan. With a scream and hair like that, he could've been the lead singer for an 80's hair metal band!
* In ''GT'', Vegeta's sad, sad attempt at growing a mustache. Even his daughter made fun of it.
* And how could anybody forget [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCfOSoVeCps this gem]] from the Ocean dub:
--> '''Krillin''': "Wow! [[TotallyRadical Mondo cool]]!"
--> '''Vegeta''': *thinking* "That's right, boys: mondo cool."
* An early Funimation dub example when Goku is in Ginyu's body:
--> "[[DullSurprise Uhhh... The pain's too strong, and... I don't think I can go o-o-o-on...]]"
* Practically every other one-liner to come out of Frieza's mouth in the Funimation dub can come off as unintentionally hilarious (especially during scenes when he's supposed to be intimidating).
* [[https://youtu.be/UpoVb3eiiHQ This... moment]] from the Cell Saga when Cell tries to surprise 17 with a body slam to absorb him. It doesn't work... Because he tries it right above the sun where 17 would notice the shadow, and Cell lets out probably the most unusual, yet hilarious roar you can think of. The Japanese music in the background only makes the entire moment sillier than it needs to be.
* The scene used in Gogeta's introduction toward the end of ''Fusion Reborn'' is different in-between versions, "thanks" to the English dub's LullDestruction:
--> '''English!Gogeta''': I am not Goku nor Vegeta! I am Gogeta! It's over, Janemba! I've come for ''you!''
--> '''Japanese!Gogeta''': *[[TranquilFury Dead]]-[[DeathGlare serious silence]]*
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wG84efH4sw The "Speedy" dub (aka "Malaysian DBZ") in its entirety.]] To wit, Turles encounters Gohan and tries to turn him to his side:
-->'''Gohan''': Daddy?\\
'''Turles''': Huuuh? Whaaat? I see. So you are the son of Kakarot. You inherited the blood of Saiya-People!\\
'''Gohan''': Wh-wh-wh-who are you?!\\
'''Turles''': Huuuh? I am da Saiya-People!\\
'''Gohan''': Whaaa? The Saiya-People?!\\
'''Turles''': Yaaaaas! My name is Turass! We can wander selfishly in universe destroy whatever we like... Eat delicious food... And drink delicious likka! There is nothing like this enjoyable life!
** This dub even has its own Engrish version of the infamous "Let that child alone!" line from the "Big Green" dub:
-->'''Piccolo''': Take you hands off from Gohan!
** Arguably, Piccolo's next line is even worse, ending with a roar that sounds like he tried to record it while gargling water.
-->'''Piccolo''': I'm not '''KIDDING!!!! GUAAAAUAUAAAAAAAUGHGHHHH!!!'''
* More tidbits from the Speedy Dub:
-->'''Meta-Cooler:''' "You are da trash of the Namek people. You are also still alive. This is a good time. I was thinking that after I [[AccidentalInnuendo BEAT 'DIS MONKEY]], I'm going to the Earth, but it cost me a trouble."\\\
'''Piccolo:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW05kibG3xU "Goku... now we fight each udda!"]]\\\
'''Piccolo:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pk3UFwumao "YOUR MIND HAS BEEN DAMAGELY CORRUPTED. GET LOST!"]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jZpRTzwteg Paragus' entire speech in the Speedy dub.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ceecaIdd00 Powa.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNav-ljytGI You must be banished.. from this worrrld.]]
* Anything Yakon does. Basically, one of the most dangerous species in the galaxy is called dumb by Goku.
** It's just, he gives off a rapey kind of feel...
** At the end of the fight, Yakon tries to kill Goku by eating his energy and turning into a balloon. It fails spectacularly.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxLs4LZzDSI Hey! That's my father's GALLIT Gun!]]
** "Don't forget, so of your cells compose ME!"
** Especially how Cell fails to keep his footing.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNxYHIosQa8 This]]... ''thing'' from the Greek dub.
** Well, now we know where Creator/LittleKuriboh got the inspiration for [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Melvin]] from.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FIjaHMZRAc Karaoke Time With Vegeta! Yay!]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioknScjCh-s Surprise buttsex!]]
* The ever-famous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwMQQbMTzl0 MAYBE NOOOOOT!]]
* A lot of the foreign dubs are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxZ-VxtVMU4 really, really bad.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnRgPN-ECB4 Here's the Portugese Ginyu voice.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaf4aa2FbGs Ocean Dub Pui Pui's voice.]]
** "It's duh gravetee! Ten times stronger than Urth."
* Ocean Supreme Kai's reaction to Dabura: "DABORAAAAAAAH!"
* You may find it difficult to take Ocean Dub Cell seriously once you assume from watching [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ZA0dza3JY this]] that he might've absorbed an opera singer in his quest for power.
** He may, in fact, possess the cells of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQVov2BNIcw Portuguese dub Dodoria]], who one might assume probably ''is'' voiced by an opera singer upon hearing him.
* Vegeta shouting "'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnPN2yOup9E THEN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS GOING TO DIE!]]'''" (Video is a WebAnimation/YoutubePoop, but it's the only video containing the scene and you can still feel the Narm pretty well).
* It was during the 'next time' segment, but the narrator just wants you to know that KRILLIN'S IN DA HOUSE!
* Goku mocking Piccolo for his fatal energy blast missing Goku's vital organs. Piccolo's thusly-memed response: '''''ALL OF THEM?!'''''
* ''The History of Trunks'' has an opening narration that tells of how Earth's greatest warriors were all killed by the Androids: "Piccolo was the first to try......and the first to die." Real appropriate. Next is this little gem: "Vegeta was next to fall. Then Yamcha and Tien. EVEN KRILLIN WAS DESTROYED BY THE RUTHLESS DUO!" [[SarcasmMode Because Krillin has such a]] ''[[SarcasmMode sparkling]]'' [[SarcasmMode record of cheating death.]]
* And of course, let us not forget Raditz's immortal one-liner towards a [[AnArmAndALeg freshly dismembered Piccolo.]]
--> '''Ah, excuse me, has anyone seen my arm?''' '''[[EvilLaugh Bwahahahahahahahaha!]]''' '''[[CrossesTheLineTwice You can't miss it, it's green!]]'''
** Comes in two [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufDg3dIbw44 distinct]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvaTxBHipK0 flavors]] for your viewing pleasure!
* The scene in which Frieza beats up Vegeta while speaking calmly would've been more dramatic if it didn't have him [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment randomly grabbing a crab and eating it.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP9IzXxVYpI Watch it here.]]
* Occasionally, the seiyuu's acting will fall flat during some especially dramatic moments:
** In ''Budokai Tenkaichi 3'', this is most noticable. The player can set the game to be in either Japanese or English. The English voice actors give it their A-game, while the Japanese seiyuus just read their lines out loud. In a fighting game.
** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', when King Kai yells or exhibits emotion, [[VocalDissonance his seiyuu delivers his lines in a flat monotone voice.]]. Granted, the actor was pushing ''86'' at the time and was [[TheOtherDarrin darrin'ed]] pretty soon afterwards.
* Vegeta's InternalMonologue about [[JerkassRealization how much he treated Trunks like crap]] is interrupted by Trunks ''throwing up his own blood onto the screen''. Talk about IdiosyncraticWipes!
* On Episode 130, Vegeta takes a senzu bean from Krillin so he can power up and pursue Dr. Gero. The Brazilian dub features this exchange:
-->'''Vegeta''': *munch* *munch* ...Those idiots really enjoy wasting time.\\
'''Vegeta''': *turns super* Very well. You all can go back home and drink coffee milk. And don't interfere with the fight!\\
'''Krillin''': Ah, you miserable!... ''Nobody tells us to drink coffee milk!''
* Bojack making {{Ineffectual Death Threat}}s to SSJ2 Gohan despite being vastly outmatched.
* The later Creator/{{Funimation}} dubs of the franchise often (but not always) dub the opening and ending themes into English. These can range from awesome ("Dragon Soul"), to cringeworthy ("Hello Hello Hello"), to hilariously narmful and full of incomprehensible Engrish ("Chōzetsu ☆ Dynamic!").
