* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Raichi is this. In his movie appearances, he was a generic "I WANT REVENGE!" guy and clinically insane. In Multiverse, it's very obvious that Raichi has been embittered and broken by the destruction of his race (which is still fresh in his mind), as he is the last living Tuffle. However, he's still shown to have his own sanity, even if he wants revenge, and even has the capacity for pity, when he freed Tapion because he heard the man was a hero, and also helped Tapion by freeing him from the suffering of Hirudegarn. Whatever one may think of Raichi, he deserves pity more than outright contempt.
* AntiClimax: After nearly 700 pages of build-up, XXI appears on screen for the first time. And then, the chapter ends with a bad gag before heading into a special.
* AssPull: Future Gohan's victory in the "Mirai" special is only made possible by a series of complete and utter asspulls. [[spoiler: First, Gohan somehow manages to avoid being killed by Dabura by showing far superior speed and reflexes to characters that are canonically way faster than him, including Buu Saga Piccolo and the main timeline Gohan. Oh, and he also somehow survives a punch from Dabura, when it's repeatedly shown that if a fighter that strong even light taps someone that weak, they can make said someone EXPLODE. Then he gets teleported onto another planet with Yakon, a monster who can easily kill him via energy drain. Coincidentally, just Yakon is about to drain Gohan, Yakon's sister, a new character who was never even implied to exist in the source material, shows up and starts screwing around, keeping Yakon distracted long enough for Gohan to to start blasting holes in the ground and making vague threats at Babidi. Then, for no reason at all, Babidi transports Gohan back to Earth rather than leave him to rot in nowhere space. Oh, and he doesn't bring Yakon back for some reason. However, Dabura's still there, so Gohan still has no chance, right? Well no, because then the crowning moment of ass-pullery occurs: Babidi drains Dabura of the vast majority of his power right before telling him to face Gohan. We're talking a huge drain, over 95% of the guy's power. Why? Because he almost killed Gohan, keeping Babidi from getting energy. For some reason it never occurs to Babidi to "punish" his mind controlled slave AFTER Gohan is dealt with. Or just to take less energy. Finally, due to this awfully convenient turn of events, Future Gohan is able to beat a guy dozens of times stronger than him and save the day.]]
* AwesomeArt:
** Chapter 29 Special has been praised for having a better art than the rest of the special chapters. It was drawn by a new artist on the team, and has made this special probably the best received so far. [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/chapters.html?chapter=29 Here it is.]]
** [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-909.html Chapter 41]] takes on a very different, more realistic style. Despite being another filler chapter, nobody really minds, because the art is both amazing and visually distinct, and Gast is a walking collection of awesome.
* BaseBreaker:
** Pan: She is a fun case. Her haters are usually people who despised her Dragon Ball GT counterpart. They transfer that hate to the DBM Pan, despite the two characters being drastically different. Her supporters are quick to point this out and like how her character arc involved her accepting her role as one of Earth's protectors and transforming into a Super Saiyan.
** XXI: He was a very anticipated character that fans universally wanted to see. Once he actually appeared a small number of people were a bit disappointed. After his match against Vegetto he split the fandom. There was a surprising number of fans who agreed with Vegetto and U4 Buu that XXI cheated. They reasoned that XXI's technique transported Vegetto into a dimension where time runs much slower than the outside world let him win by default thanks to the 30 count. They feel he abused a technicality, and violated the spirit of the tournament format. They wanted a rematch between Vegetto and XXI as much as Vegetto and Buu did. There are people who felt XXI's move was legal and that it was a good strategy. This belief is shared by U16 Gohan. He pointed out had the match been a real fight the technique would have still allowed XXI to achieve his objective before Vegetto could even break out of it. His [[spoiler: victory over #18 by using the remote deactivator]] has split fans even more. One camp enjoys that he's using tactics and wits to outsmart his foes. The other feels it ruins the spirit of Dragon Ball, which favored straight-forward combat.
** Son Bra: Some people think she's one of the best characters in the setting, others regard her as an overpowered and arrogant {{Jerkass}} who has no respect for anyone other than her father and a handful of others.
** [[spoiler: King Cold's [[SuperMode augmentation forms]]]] created an unprecedented number of comments, both positive and negative. Some think [[RuleOfCool they look awesome]], others think [[CoolButStupid the awe factor is outweighed by how stupid they look]]. Some say [[spoiler:that it makes total sense for Cold to have two augmentation forms, while others point out that the augmentation forms were supposed to have only been discovered by Cold, and question how he could have found ''two''.]] Worse, they managed to stir up arguments about Son Bra.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The beginning of the tournament's second day is celebrated with a musical performance by the ''Film/StarWars'' [[Film/ANewHope Cantina Band]]. Pan and Tapion enjoy the musical interlude, Bra, Frieza's Family and Babidi do not. [[spoiler: Zen Buu thought it was so bad that he demanded that they give their instruments to him so he could play.]]
* CanonDefilement: The series violates all levels of the canon at various points.
** Salagir openly admits that he ignores the guidebooks and substitutes his own fan theories for them, even though they're official material and approved by Akira Toriyama himself.
** In the manga, King Cold repeatedly states that Frieza is stronger than him, and that anyone stronger than Frieza would automatically be seen as the strongest in the universe (excluding Cooler of course, as he's anime only). In DBM, Salagir ignored this and gave Cold two massively powerful forms he was never stated to have. This has been a long point of contention for fans of the original series, since Frieza stated his final form was his original one it would logically follow his father would resemble said final form, unless he was himself transformed. Frieza and Cooler's reactions in-comic suggest that Cold had the same problem as Frieza when it came to controlling himself in his original form only worse, enough so that he almost never bothers to transform. The fans who accepted these new forms were less than impressed when Cold revealed [[spoiler:two forms even more powerful than his "true form". Particularly notable since, not only did these not exist in canon, they conflict with a prior comic which stated that Cooler was the only frost demon with such augmented forms.]]
** In the main series, it's said that only Namekians of the same clan can fuse. In fact that's kind of the whole reason everyone didn't just fuse. In DBM, this restriction is lifted, making the existence of Gast Carcolh possible.
** In the manga, Babidi couldn't drain his own minions for use in the resurrection of Buu. He states that only "good" (morally) energy can be used for Buu's resurrection, and all of his minions are evil. If he could, he would've just drained Dabura over and over until the meter filled. In DBM, not only can Babidi do that, but he uses it as a PUNISHMENT, draining Dabura of nearly all of his power before sending him off to fight Future Gohan. The author admitted that he did this because even he couldn't see a plausible way for Gohan not to get killed in one hit.
** Salagir is also very open about the fact that he "allows himself" to change non-manga materials as he pleases, i.e. the movies (not that he stays true to the manga either). In particular, almost everything about Broly, from his power to the story of his second movie, because Salagir [[CreatorsPet thinks he's cool.]]
* CreatorsPet: Universe 20 Broly. Salagir exaggerates Broly's power, moving him from "extremely powerful" to "invincible" while in his Legendary Super Saiyan state. Additionally, he gets a lot of focus despite being an ultimately unimportant character (his fight with Vegito being the BatmanColdOpen of the entire series). This occurs because he thinks Broly's awesome. Broly is pretty unpopular with the hardcore ''Dragon Ball'' fanbase due to overexposure, so this blatant favoritism doesn't go unnoticed.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** The villains steal the show.
** Kakarotto for being psycho and hilarious.
** Cell. Just as {{badass}} and [[AwesomeEgo smug]] as the main series Cell, except with a nice helping of CrazyAwesome on top of it.
** Zen Buu, an FauxAffablyEvil MagnificentBastard with many funny and awesome scenes. A lot like the original Super Buu, except more intelligent and civilized. Comes with a helping of CreepyAwesome.
** Hanasia, due to being Goku's mother and just ''awesome in general''.
** If Gast wasn't on the list before the certainly earned his spot when he effortless stopped U4 Buu's rampage and saving everyone from being absorbed by him.
** U13 Vegeta for his absolutely awesome battle with Raichi, even though he lost.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Frieza ButtMonkey status is particularly hilarious given the ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' movie where he's Post-''Battle of Gods'' Goku's level. As in, ''Resurrection 'F''' Frieza would mop the floor with the entire tournament.
** In Multiverse, Goku's mom is a hardcore Saiyan warrior who was the strongest Saiyan alive. Goku's canon mother is the exact opposite, being a soft-hearted person who wasn't cut off for battle.
** Years after being a fan premise, [[spoiler: ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' is making a "inter-universal battle" a reality. It's made even funnier when, just like Multiverse, the main universe in Dragon Ball averts TheEarthPrimeTheory.]]
*** In a more specific example, [[spoiler:both stories have an alternate universe where we see what the Saiyans would be if Frieza hadn't existed. ''Multiverse''[='s=] Universe 10 shows them as barely better than cavemen and so ridiculously weak that even turning into Great Apes can't help them, while ''Super''[='s=] 6th Universe shows them as becoming a race of noble heroes who have evolved beyond the need for tails, and one member is powerful enough to impress his universe's God of Destruction. Cabba, the Saiyan from U6, is strong enough to fight evenly against Vegeta's in his base form, ''after'' he has been training with Whis, which would make Cabba stronger than Vegito.]]
*** Also related to Frieza and his clan's ButtMonkey status, U6 has a GoodCounterpart ([[spoiler:[[BitchInSheepsClothing although we find out he's just as evil as Frieza]]]]) to Frieza in Frost. He's even ''stronger'' than Frieza even after he trained, although he does lacks Frieza's golden transformation.
* MagnificentBastard: U4 Buu, even more so than his original counterpart.
* MemeticLoser: Raditz's usual portrayal as this is played with here. Besides losing on the first round on the main storyline, [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/strip-49.html a minicomic]] was published which made fun of the concept.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Bojack snapping U16 Pan's neck. Cell's beatdown on him was ''very'' satisfying.]]
* {{Narm}}:
** Last panel of [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-382.html page 382]].
** Android 16's fight is quite narmy.
** [[spoiler:Zen Buu's punch to the West Kaioshin]] in [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-735.html page 735]] was deemed similar to those from cartoons.
* NightmareFuel:
** [[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/page-342.html Pages 342 through 351]].
** U13 Kakarotto...[[http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/pages/final/0610.png just see this page]] and Chapter 27... Made even more horrifying by the single fact that, had the Goku we know and love not hit his head as a child when his ship landed on earth, [[FridgeHorror that's what Goku would be today...]] Oh, it gets ''worse''. Turns out Kakarotto and Krillin were ''good friends'', and for one panel, we see Kakarotto being as innocent as his U18 counterpart.
** The Kaioshin's rather direct way of dealing with upcoming dangers, like killing Frieza and Cooler when they were children and Broly when he was an infant, in the Universe 1/10 Special was noted to be too violent by fans.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap:
** To many, Pan, who was redesigned from her [[Anime/DragonballGT counter part]], being given more similarity to child Goku.
** Uub may also qualify. While it's true that he had a supporting role in GT, he quickly became unimportant and something of a small fry. In DB:M he at least gets to show off a bit.
** While chapter 14, 16 and '''especially''' 18 have been panned by pretty much everyone (as you can see below), the next special, despite being even longer than all of them, as it lasted for ''two'' chapters, was received well enough for most readers to be again interested in them. The Universe 7 special was well received as well.
* RootingForTheEmpire: As a result of many of the villains being much more likeable and charismatic than they were in the main timeline, and Vegito and Bra being far less likeable while receiving greater focus, it's not uncommon to see people cheering for the villains.
* SilentMajority: Non-posting readers.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** Frieza gets the short end of the stick in EVERY universe he appears in. The one version of Frieza taking part in the tournament has had no increase in power, when he could have had a 5th form or some other kind of interesting transformation.
** The U19 Tech Warriors are the most unique fighters present in the whole tournament. Thus far, they have either been casually beaten in battle, or in the case of Eleim he only won by a tiny margin. [[spoiler: And now they've been knocked out of the tournament entirely after having the faintest hints of their backstory explored.]] Thankfully this is finally starting to get subverted. U19 is getting its story told in novel/fan fiction form that is on the DBM site.
** If you ask any fan of the comic most of them will say a lot of characters are being wasted. Uub probably qualifies. Like his GT counterpart his role in the overall plot has been small. This might be because he's only had one match so far. A small, but vocal part of fandom don't like that Goten and Trunks of universes 16 and 18 are just as childish as they were as kids and feel Salagiri wasted two promising characters by reducing them to joke characters who are even shallower than their canon counterparts. The girls from U6 have been getting complaints. Fans feel they are unnecessary since their backstory hasn't been explored yet nor have their characters made any impact on the tournament besides being fodder for stronger characters. Many felt U6 special should have told the girls story instead of showing Bojack and his gang kill the Z-fighters.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** Some longtime Dragon Balls fans think the entire webcomic became wasted the longer it went on. Instead of writing more UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny WhatIf fights like Cell vs. Dabura and Nail vs. Recoom, it shifted to using more and more OCs in the plot and tournament.
** Fans love the concept of multiverse with various universes, different from the main DB universe, but some feel its being wasted for a tournament. Many fans feel the specials as a whole are wasted because most of them retell how canon events went except with the villains winning instead of exploring the repercussions of the villains' victories. The U6 special got a lot of complaints because it showed Bojack and his minions killing all the Z-fighters and never even showed the girls in U6 at all.
** The U17 Special was disliked for similar reasons. What, Cell killed the Z fighters in his universe? Naw, ya think? Plenty of fans were wondering why they didn't show, say, how Cell dealt with Babidi.
** The Future Majin Attack special in a way. The special was better received the most of the other ones, but there was still out cry from fans on how forced the plot was to make Future Gohan win against Babidi and Dabura. See the AssPull section for more details. Instead the special could have been centered around Future/U12 Trunks and 16 and how they dealt with Babidi and Dabura coming to Earth to revive Majin Buu.
** A recent minicomic revealed that U8 Paragas and Broly are still around, but chose to live in peace instead of attacking Freeza and his PTO, who are still dominant in the universe. What would have been an awesome special in itself, it has been decided it is not worth exploring, let alone other universes where multiple evil factions would still be around.
* VocalMinority: Among DBM fans, there are a few "regulars" who post more or less every page.
* WhatAnIdiot:
** The Vargas who decided not to bother [[spoiler: sending Broly back to his universe]] after the Broly vs. Vegetto fight.
*** DumbassHasAPoint: As far as they knew [[spoiler: Broly]] wasn't a threat anymore and in the long run it would be safer to leave him in the lifeless universe the tournament is taking place in rather than send him back to his populated home one.
** The Grand Supreme Kai being willing to let [[spoiler: U4 Buu]] compete after his rampage was a relief to fans who felt it was too soon for him to exit the story, but the fact is that he allowed him to still compete is still foolish. It is true they have him contained at the moment the fact of the manner is that since he learned how to overcome Vargas technology and manipulate it means he is resourceful enough that him over coming the technique used to contain him is not out the realms of possibilities. U16 Gohan already told the Kais everything about him, meaning that the Grand Supreme Kai already knows just how dangerous he can be. However, as of Chapter 42, East Supreme Kai seems to think that he is actually being controlled by him.
** Universe 8 Gohan is commonly seen this way after it didn't even occur to him to use the dragon radar to search Frieza's ship, frantically checking every room instead.
