----
* AcceptableTargets: In the Christmas Tree of Might special, sucking the Christmas joy out of the world is apparently "{{Disney}} evil".
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Nappa really evil, [[PsychopathicManchild is he just too stupid to know right from wrong?]]
** Alternatively, is he really dumb or [[ObfuscatingStupidity does he actually understand things, but maintains a fool's guise to distract Vegeta from the mass genocide of their race?]]
* AngstWhatAngst:
** Kid Vegeta just lost his planet, his entire race... and his father, but Nappa, in his wisdom, is taking him to DAIRY QUEEN! Vegeta agrees, [[DownplayedTrope if only just to get Nappa to shut up]].
** Then there's Gohan, who seemed generally okay about his dad never being around... [[SubvertedTrope at first]], but it's become clear over time that he might not be quite so well-adjusted after all.
--> '''Gohan:''' I'm beginning to think I have issues.
* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Garlic Jr, despite his build up for his arc, is killed immediately by Mr. Popo without any effort.]]
** [[ForegoneConclusion Freeza and Cold followed suit.]]
* AwesomeEgo: Vegeta's heart is ''pure, unadulterated badass''. Well, so ''he'' claims - [[spoiler: he went Super Saiyan by throwing a temper tantrum]].
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Goku naming, and subsequently mourning over a bird in Cooler's Revenge. Its only purpose is to serve as a DeusExMachina to make Goku go Super Saiyan, and the attention that this particular detail is given feels out of place when compared to the rest of the special. Returns as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in episode 40, where it's revealed that [[spoiler: the bird may ACTUALLY have taught a dinosaur to ride a ball.]]
** Episode of Bardock seems to be a BigLippedAlligatorMoment in universe.
** The ending of episode 12 where not only Krillin wonder whether he is in a dream and got scared by Popo, but also a live-action sequence of KaiserNeko being frightened of Popo. This is never referenced again in the next episode.
** Episode 27, when Goku starts singing "Row, Row Your Boat", which King Kai and Tien of all people spontaneously join in for no reason. When Yamcha was about to do so as well, Goku just blasts opens the healing pod and goes after Freeza, not even referencing it again.
* BrokenBase: On the TeamFourStar forums, do not mention about future appearances or reincarnations of [[spoiler:Ghost!]]Nappa. This is the best way to ask for a flame war. [[spoiler: Which is now foregone given that Nappa is alive, so suggestions of him being a ghost just make it seem like people want him dead again.]]
** The Garlic Saga looks to be this as [[spoiler: Garlic is assimilated into Mr. Popo before he could do anything]].
*** Some are fine with it since they didn't want to see that particular filler arc dragged out, others felt there was plenty to make fun of in it and potential was lost.
%% Please do not add any Complete Monster examples without discussing it here first: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=6vic3f9h1cy5qivsenw8llok. And Freeza is not an example at all.
%%
* CreepyAwesome: Freeza and Mr.Popo.
* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** The ''Christmas Tree of Might'' special is especially full of this, between all the rape/molestation jokes (three words: "I raped Rudolph," and Krillin saying the only mall Santas worse than Slay are the ones that molest kids, with Slay replying that that makes him the worst mall Santa).
** Goku trying to wake his son after Recoome has snapped his neck with a kick:
--->Maybe if I shake him some more?
** Freeza effortlessly tearing off Nail's arm is scary. Freeza letting Nail grow it back and then doing it ''again'', with a cheerful "Yoink!" is ''hilarious''.
** Freeza impaling [[spoiler:Krillin (and raising Krillin's "Owned Count" to 15)]]. At first, it's gruesome. Then it gets funny [[spoiler:when it hits 20 and Freeza begins getting one-up points from it]].
---> '''Gohan:''' [[spoiler:Krillin, stop, you're making him stronger!]]\\
'''Krillin:''' [[spoiler:I... CAN'T... HELP... IT!! GAH!!]]
** Freeza taking on Vegeta does this rather frequently.
--->'''Freeza''': Kidneypunch, kidneypunch, kidneypunch, kidneypunch, and pause[[{{Beat}} ...]] kidneypunch!
** Freeza desperately trying to keep his organs inside of his body after getting cut in half. Crosses even further when Goku unleashes a HurricaneOfPuns.
** Krillin's Chiaotzu impression before he [[spoiler:gets blown up by Freeza in a deleted scene]].
--->'''Krillin''': Goodbye Tien!
** The Yamcha from Trunks' timeline [[spoiler: hanged himself]], which is either this or DudeNotFunny. Also Bulma and Vegeta [[spoiler: having audible sex]] later in the same episode. Especially the aftermath.
*** Even better, the alternate take reveals that TFS originally had it so [[spoiler:Future Yamcha used Future Puar ''[[VoluntaryShapeShifting as the rope]]'']]!
** Chichi reading the disclaimer while Goku is ''screaming in agony'' in the background.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** Both [[http://teamfourstar.com/page-makeaman their rendition]] of [[Disney/{{Mulan}} "I'll Make A Man Out of You,"]] and [[spoiler: [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Ghost Nappa]]'s theme song.]]
** If you hit [[spoiler: Burter's dead body]] hard enough, you can play a song. [[spoiler: Vegeta plays the VideoGame/{{Tetris}} theme]].
** The "Rockin' It Out" FanVid, which features Goku and Vegeta in an epic guitar duel.
** Bardock - The Father of Goku Abridged featured both "Dare" and "The Touch" from Transformers: The Movie. Bardock even uses Prime's legendary "__ must be stopped, no matter the cost!" right before The Touch starts. CMOA indeed.
** Nappa singing "[[RageAgainstTheMachine Killing in the Name]]" for the Christmas album.
** Vegeta singing "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Dragonballs."
** It may have been short, but Nappa's rendition of {{KISS}}'s Detroit Rock City was still awesome.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9NFvegp57c Freeza's ringtone]] is glorious.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVZxKtnUtDk Yamcha the Scarfaced Bandit]]," which plays during Yamcha's fight with [=S.N.O.W. Man.=], who plays the song for fighting music.
** "[[CrazyAwesome KILLING CRABS! IN THE OOOCEAN]]! KILL IT FAST! PAIN EXPLOSION, [[BigYes YEAH!!]]"
** Goku makes his entrance on Namek to HulkHogan's theme. [[AwesomenessIsVolatile The sheer awesomesomeness made many a head explode]].
** Piccolo's arrival to the fight against Freeza is made even more Badass when framed by "Battle With Magus" from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' Resurrection.
** Piccolo's arrival to the fight against Lord Slug is made even more Badass when framed by [[StoneColdSteveAustin Stone Cold's]] theme, "Glass Shatters".
** Nappa's short rendition of "[[Music/{{Disturbed}} Stupify]]" at the end of Lord Slug.
** Cat loves food, ye-yeah, yeah [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCnC1bXxEeI yeah!]]
* DesignatedHero: Vegeta's status as this in his [[GrayAndGreyMorality fight with Android 18]] is perfectly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d. First we have this brilliant gem.
--> ''(The Z-Fighters are flying to the scene of the battle.)''
--> '''Future Trunks''' ''(thinking)''''':''' ''"I can't believe he's taking them on alone! He has no idea what kind of destructive force they pack! The Androids are humanity's greatest threat!"''
--> ''(Cue the part of the battle that happens on a freeway, where Vegeta's haphazard attacks on 18 result in multiple cars being blown up and everyone inside them likely dead.)''
--> '''Vegeta:''' '''"I WILL KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS I HAVE TO AS LONG AS YOU ARE ONE OF THEM!!"'''
** Soon followed by him blowing up a truck 17 wanted to take, resulting in 17 calling him a dick, and of course, shocking everyone when he steps up his StayInTheKitchen game towards 18 by calling her a [[{{HypocriticalHumor}} smug]] [[CountryMatters cunt]]. Cue NoHoldsBarredBeatdown full of TranquilFury from 18.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Downplayed; Nappa still does what he did in canon, but unlike his canon version, he seems to be completely unaware of what he's doing is bad, and is PlayedForLaughs.
* DudeNotFunny:
** Vegeta, as an Oozaru, makes a Christopher Reeve joke while crushing Goku's legs. [[IdiotHero Goku]] even calls him out on it.
** The TooSoon running gag. Thankfully Team Four Star realized this and stopped using it.
** Yamcha of Trunks' timeline [[spoiler: hanging himself]]. Made much, much worse in an alternate take where ''[[spoiler: he uses Puar as the rope]]''.
** Both an in-universe and out-of-universe example when [[spoiler: Vegeta called Android 18 a "smug c%#!". Everyone present is pretty shocked. At that point, you'd almost start rooting for 18 in the following smack-down, because even without that, Vegeta was just asking for it.]]
** Chi-Chi showing no sympathy for Goku's heart virus, only caring that he is home for once.
* EarWorm: See the CrowningMusicOfAwesome section above.
** Not a song, but after watching Cooler 2, you'll have a lot of trouble getting "beep" out of your head.
* EnsembleDarkHorse:
** Nappa. It says a lot about the popularity of the character that they're bringing him around post mortem [[spoiler: (and then back to life, though out of the way)]] solely because of how much he pisses off Vegeta. Lampshaded in [[TheAbridgedSeries Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged]] with this quote:
--> '''Nappa''': I am hilarious and you will quote everything I say.
** Mr. Popo as well.
** Dodoria, or at least his[[spoiler:/her]] portrayal as an FauxAffablyEvil GoodOlBoy, seems to be getting remarkably popular for such a relatively minor character.
** Zarbon eventually fell under this category, especially after what Episode 17 did to him. He even does the disclaimer opening!
** Then there's the Ginyu Force. Team Four Star certainly knows how to make likable quirky villains.
** Super Kami Guru. Also lampshaded in [[TheAbridgedSeries Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged Episode 2]] with his last words:
--> '''Guru''': I am hilarious... and you will quote... every-thing.. I... s-a-y...
** Despite getting his ass handed to him in the fight against Freeza, Nail still managed to be completely badass and is one of the few people to actually piss him off and live. Well, [[FusionDance sort of]].
* EvilIsCool: Cooler. No pun intended.
** Freeza, Vegeta, anybody the trope applied to in canon applies here.
* EvilIsSexy:
** Bulma has an insane infatuation with Zarbon the first time she lays eyes on him. And... then he transforms and she is less enthused.
-->'''Bulma''': [[KillItWithFire KILL IT WITH FIRE!]]
** Vegeta. In spades. Just read the Youtube comments on any given episode.
* FoeYay: Freeza toward Goku. Well, Goku thinks so anyway.
-->'''Goku''': Are... you coming on to me?
** Not that some of Freeza's comments don't encourage such thinking, mind you....
-->'''Freeza''': Dirty monkey... Huh? Where-- [Goku appears in front of him, two heads higher and with his abs in front of Freeza's face] [[HoYay Oh my]] ''[[HoYay god]]'', [[DistractedByTheSexy you could grind meat on th]]--[stumbles back] AH!
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Jeice is not fast enough with the "Not It" to tell Captain Ginyu about Guldo's death. After Goku and Vegeta get through with the rest of them, Jeice would have had to inform the Captain anyways.
** When Freeza meets Guru, he is shocked over how fat he is since Namekians survive entirely on water. [[spoiler:In Episode 30, it's revealed its because [[MoralEventHorizon he drank so much water that he caused the Great Drought, framed the Albino Namekians for it and ordered their genocide]].]]
* GrowingTheBeard: The series started off as a simple {{flanderization}} of several characters, with the occasional [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall-breaking]] and one-time gags. Ever since season 2 however, the characters became more distinct, the jokes became more structured and original, and the fourh-wall breaking stopped. Not to mention that the editting and voice acting have greatly improved.
* HarsherInHindsight[=/=]NotSoDifferent:
** In "Christmas Tree of Might", Gohan mentions to everyone, Yamcha included that suicide rates go up during the holidays. Then they all laugh about it. [[spoiler: And later it's revealed that Yamcha committed suicide when he learnt of Bulma's pregnancy by Vegeta in the BadFuture.]]
* HeReallyCanAct: LittleKuriboh has gained this reaction thanks to his casually terrifying portrayal of Freeza which many consider to be superior to the official dubs, or at least on par with Creator/ChrisAyres.
* HilariousInHindsight:
-->'''Vegeta''': Nine minutes eighteen seconds, NINE MINUTES EIGHTEEN SECONDS!\\
'''Nappa''': What's that, Vegeta?\\
'''Vegeta''': Happiest... moment... of... my life!
** [[DontExplainTheJoke For those of you who don't get the gag]], that's the time in the video when [[spoiler:Vegeta finally kills Nappa... but with the revelation of '''GHOST NAPPA''' in episode 10, his killing is what's really HilariousInHindsight in that there is no salvation for Vegeta at all.]]
** Dragon Ball being {{recut}}, remade, ''abridged'' if you will? Removing the {{filler}} and {{padding}} to condense the plot? [[Anime/DragonBallKai A crazy idea, I tells ya.]]
--->'''takahata101''': ''(to Creator/ChristopherSabat at a convention, regarding ''Kai'')'' ''(Nappa's voice)'' WAY TO BE FOUR YEARS LATE TO THAT PARTY!!!!
** Also, Megami33's Bulma and Little Kuriboh's Freeza sounded like Monica Rial's Bulma and Chris Ayres' Freeza before either of their performances were broadcast.
** Lanipator's [[OneSceneWonder portrayal]] of Freeza (which was based on Linda Young's version) getting replaced by Little Kuriboh's version in the middle of the ''Bardock Abridged'' special wound up accurately predicting Chris Ayres taking over from Young in the middle of the ''Kai'' dub.
** [[VideoGame/ArTonelico3 So, nudity makes you stronger on this planet.]]
** Goku's voice actor is named [=MasakoX=], which he [[WordOfGod confirmed]] that he named himself after Creator/MasakoNozawa, Goku's seiyuu. Take note that he started out two years before being cast as Goku.
** Vegeta3986 tends to voice [[ButtMonkey Butt Monkeys]], such as Yamcha, Raditz, and Cui. After the [[HypeBacklash reception]] of [[NarutoTheAbridgedSeries Naruto: The Abridged]] [[TheMovie movie]], he pretty much became the Yamcha of the Abridging community.
** From episode of the Saiyan Saga where Goku returns from the dead;
-->'''Nappa:''' (Realizing Gohan escaped his attack) Hey! Where'd he go? Did he disappear? [[{{Foreshadowing}} Or was he never there to begin with?]]
*** I think that one requires clarification...
** There was a running gag about Zarbon being AmbiguouslyGay [[spoiler: until it was revealed he had a [[CampStraight girlfriend]]]]. Both Kaiser '''and''' Creator/JMichaelTatum (his actor in ''Anime/DragonBallKai'') are StraightGay.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14D5wKSVlXg King Yemma's]] rant about his mahogany desk is a lot funnier now that [[Literature/TheHungerGames another meme about mahogany]] has gone viral.
** Early in the Namek Saga, Krillin continuously screams "Quack" and Dodoria seems to think he's a [[SpaceX Space Duck]] This is made funnier when you know of the [[Webcomic/DragonBallMultiverse Vargas.]]
** When Gohan attacks Freeza, it eerily foreshadows the climax of the ''[[Film/TheAvengers Avengers]]'' film:
--> '''Gohan''': [[HulkSmash Gohan smash]] [[ComicBook/{{Loki}} effeminate alien]]! [[HulkSpeak Gohan strongest there is]]!
** There's a point in Episode 35 where Gero shoots lasers out of his eyes. This occurs:
--> '''Goku''': [[Film/ManOfSteel Stop it!]]
--> '''Gero''': [[Film/ManOfSteel Never!]]
*** Note this is 5 days before release.
** When Piccolo pulls off Gohan's tail, he asks "What the hell is that?" about his penis, setting up the [[BrickJoke joke in Episode 7]] about how Namekians don't have them.
** Bardock notes that Fasha wasn't Goku's mother, zoom to 2014, it reveals that his mother was in fact, a pacifistic Saiyan named Gine.
** One of Nail's ideas for an attack name is [[TheLegoMovie Taco Tuesday]].
* HoYay: Putting aside the Tien/Chaotzu innuendo that prompts Yamcha (and once, Krillin) to say "gay", and ALSO putting aside ALL the Zarbon innuendo [[spoiler: particularly since he's CampStraight]], Episode 30 had [[spoiler: Dende confess his love for Gohan. And then promptly bolts (along with the entire Namekian race) when he sees how stunned Gohan is.]]
* IKnewIt:
** Well, you know someone somewhere predicted that Jeice would be from Space Australia...
** Likewise, you know someone somewhere predicted that Guldo would be [[ButtMonkey "The Raditz"]] of the Ginyu Force.
** Believe it or not, [[spoiler:GHOST NAPPA]] was planned from the very beginning. Yet the fans guessed that he would appear, and they were right!
* JerkassWoobie: Vegeta's a horrible man to be sure, but [[CosmicPlaything the sheer amount of abuse he gets put through]] [[RuleOfFunny in the name of comedy]] earns him a few sympathy points.
** The Ginyu Force, especially Jeice and Burter.
** Dende.
** Krillin acts insensitively towards a lot of people, but that's because the world is constantly out to get him.
** Then there's Piccolo, who acts cold and aloof but is so insecure and desperate for friends that you kind of feel bad for him. Of course, he has Nail, but he doesn't do anything to help in the most dire of situations.
* LoveToHate: Freeza.
* MagnificentBastard: Freeza.
** Ginyu, who actually spends some moments as Freeza's HyperCompetentSidekick.
** Dende in episode 30.
--> '''Dende''': ''"Ah, it's good to be the king."''
* MemeticBadass: Scary or not, one has to admit Mr. Popo is quite powerful.
* MemeticLoser:
** Raditz.
** Krillin combines this with LovableCoward. Krillin Owned Counter, anyone?
** Yamcha is never able to live this down.
* MemeticMolester: [[spoiler:Vegeta]] is slowly turning into one of these as of episode 18, possibly subverted that he MIGHT have been acting at the time. And then in episode 24:
-->[[spoiler:'''Vegeta:''']] Now both of you. '''STRIP.'''
** Mr. Popo as well.
-->'''Mr. Popo:''' I'm terrifying and a potential rapist, but I'll never say it flat out.
* MemeticMutation:
** [[spoiler: Ghost Nappa]], in the abridged community. [[spoiler: In fact, he's the father of [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Mokuba Kaiba]].]]
** As is Piccolo's "[[DetonationMoon MOOOOOON!]]"
*** "DOOOOOOOOOODGE!"
** Power levels are bullshit!
** How did X happen? Answer: [[AWizardDidIt Muffin Button]].
** Sure is Zarbon in here...
** NO! None of that! ''Shame on you!''
** Hell, [[FountainOfMemes almost every single line in the series]] has become a meme at some point.
** SENZU BEAN!
* MemeticPsychopath: This series is the root cause of Mr. Popo becoming one. He now has his own page on the villains wiki as a result.
* {{Moe}}: Gohan
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Freeza's absolute relish when he kills [[spoiler: Dende]] (which is not PlayedForLaughs). He goes even further during his savage NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of Vegeta, which is arguably ''worse'' than in the original. At least then he had the excuse of being royally pissed but in the Abridged series, you get the impression that he's torturing Vegeta ''[[ForTheEvulz for fun]]''.
** It's also implied that Freeza destroyed planet Vegeta just for fun in this series.
* MostAnnoyingSound: "Urgh. I just got here and this planet's already annoying me." -- Vegeta's reaction to Krillin's epic screaming fit at the start of episode 13.
** Any time Nappa goes into BrokenRecord mode.
* NeverLiveItDown:
** Goku calling Piccolo and other namekians as [[Franchise/SuperMario "Yoshis"]]
** In-verse Example: Vegeta being a "Prison Bitch".[[spoiler: ...At least until he kills Nappa.]]
** Getting dog biscuits thrown at his head by Vegeta, for Guldo.
** Another in-universe one: Krillin is ''never'' going to let Bulma forget she tried to have sex with her son from the future.
** [[RunningGag This seems to be a trend]]. Kami isn't willing to let Piccolo forget about the first time he fused with Nail.
--> '''[[{{God}} Kami]]''': Lower.
--> '''[[IneffectualLoner Piccolo]]''': [[GenreSavvy Yeah, not falling for that.]]
--> '''Kami''': [[{{Touche}} Hmph, I didn't think so.]]
** And after Kami finally fuses with Piccolo... Nail ''and'' Kami both get in on the fun.
--> '''[[DeadpanSnarker Nail]]'': [[LampshadeHanging Isn't this the part]] [[TemptingFate where you chant to yourself?]]
--> '''Piccolo''': [[RunningGag Shut up.]]
--> '''Kami (now inside Piccolo's head)''': Come now, [[{{Foreshadowing}} we should do whatever feels right.]]
--> '''Piccolo''': ''[[ThisIsGonnaSuck Oh please no...]]''
--> '''Nail and Kami''': '' '''YOU CAN WIN, YOU FEEL GREAT, YOU. CAN. DO. THIS!''' ''
* NightmareFuel: Now has its own page.
* NightmareRetardant: Even though Mr. Popo is made out to be terrifying, some of his quotes can easily negate this;
-->'''Mr. Popo''': "I'M SO F**KING HIGH RIGHT NOW!" and "CAUSE IT WAS NOTHIN BUT GARLIC!"
** In Episode 40, he's completely whacked out on a gallon of LSD. And it is hilarious.
* OneSceneWonder: Arguably [=GanXingBa=] as King Yemma. And his (mahogany) desk.
** And the nameless farmer from Episode One (the one with the marijua--I mean, "carrot" patch).
** Toolo from "Bardock: Father of Goku". Of course, he knew this would be on the page--[[RunningGag HE CAN SEE THE FYOOO-CHURRRR!!!!]]
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: A lot of characters get this, especially [[spoiler: Maron]] who's revealed to have acted stupid to get Krillin to pay back from insurance fraud while acting cool.
* RonTheDeathEater:
** Both Porunga and Guru refer to a race of albino Namekians that were eliminated in "the purge" and based on their reactions to Krillin, they clearly performed that purge. Guru is also shown to be a sociopath and implied to be something more sinister.
** Mr. Popo is just plain scary.
** Chi-Chi went from being a strict mom to an AxCrazy psycho.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: During the scene when Freeza is watching Captain Ginyu's "Wheel Of Death" TV show, they forgot to edit out the Dragon Balls nearby despite them being stolen from him earlier. Additionally, they forgot to remove the [=GalacTV=] watermark from the first cut to Freeza.
** Earlier, when [[spoiler: Kami is dying]], Popo shows cold indifference, however, right as this happens, [[spoiler: You can see canon Popo shivering in sadness as Kami dissapears due to Piccolo's death]].
* {{Squick}}: How everyone reacts when learning that [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Cui/Kui/Kiwi's]] race reproduces asexually.
** The [[spoiler: split-millisecond shot of Freeza in the shower when Krillin blinds Dodoria with a solar flare. When Krillin uses it on Freeza, it's the other way around. It's a split-second shot of [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/239/0/d/tfs_dodoria_solar_flare_by_makemyheartstop-d480l5a.png Dodoria as a fat woman in lingerie]]]].
** In Kai Abridged 2 when Krillin uses it on Dodoria [[spoiler: we get [[http://i.imgur.com/1XciHc3.png this shot]] of Lanipator]].
** After TheReveal that [[spoiler:Dodoria is a woman]].
--> [[spoiler:Dodoria]]: And that's why I was considered the most beautiful, ''and fertile'', woman on my home planet. Before Freeza blew it up.
--> '''Vegeta:''' He tends to do that, also [[{{Squick}} huh-uugh]].
* SuperlativeDubbing: Despite the fact that this series is a GagDub, Lanipator actually manages to play a better Piccolo and Vegeta than Creator/ChristopherSabat himself.
** 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.
** As said above, LittleKuriboh as Freeza is absolutely amazing, managing to sound sinister, uppity, polite, bored, irritated, funny, and at times [[NightmareFuel genuinely horrifying]].
** Many fans have already started agreeing that Kaiser as Trunks is amazingly well done. And not just the voice but the dialogue as well.
* TakeThatScrappy: In several of the abridged movies they found a way for Icarus (who Lanipator vocally hates) to be eaten by the cast.
* TearJerker: Freeza's beat-down of Vegeta.
--> '''Freeza''': You see? It's just like I told you. Like a bitch [[note]]Freeza predicted that Vegeta would be "crying like a little bitch" by the end of their fight.[[/note]]
** And after Freeza kills him:
--> '''Goku''': C'mon, you deserve a proper burial.
--> '''Freeza''': Ah, yes. A proper burial: an unmarked grave on an empty planet in the middle of Nowhere, Space. Honestly, I'd say it's too good for him.
--> '''Goku''': I'll be sure to give Freezer one for you, best buddy. Goodbye.
** Just like in the source material, the BadFuture Trunks comes from. [[spoiler: Especially Yamcha's [[DrivenToSuicide fate]].]]
** Goku's reaction to [[spoiler: Freeza killing Krillin]]. You can hear from the sound of his voice that Goku was trying to hold in his tears.
* UglyCute: Guldo crosses into this, thanks to the endearing voice Takahata101 gives him.
* UnfortunateImplications: Blue Popo is created to replace the "racially insensitive" Mr. Popo. Except no one told Mr. Popo, who was not amused.
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Same as in canon, but taken UpToEleven. To the fanbase, Vegeta's egocentric penchant for irreverent sass is [[AwesomeEgo awesome and hilarious]]. In-universe, he's so [[TheFriendNobodyLikes hated by the others]] that to associate words like "love" and "friends" with him at all is to make too many assumptions.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Freeza, of course. Gohan inadvertently breaks it to Krillin at the beginning of episode 14 when Gohan admonishes Krillin for calling Freeza a "fag," which to Krillin means a "'''F'''reaky '''A'''lien '''G'''enotype," not a derogatory term for a homosexual.
--> '''Krillin:''' THAT THING'S A ''GUY''?!?
--> '''Goku:''' [[CallBack Haha, that thing was a guy.]]
** And now as of episode 15, [[spoiler:Dodoria]].
** FridgeBrilliance, once you add in the fact that [[spoiler:Zarbon is MistakenForGay, the three primary villains of Season Two before the Ginyu Force show up are all subject to other characters being baffled by these revelations]].
* TheWoobie: Dende. His entire family is killed in front of him, he is mistreated by both Krillin and Vegeta, he watches his only friends beaten to near-death, [[spoiler:he experiences the pain of death, and, most tragically, his AnguishedDeclarationOfLove to Gohan blows up in his face]]. Even if he's a bit of a whiner, can you blame him?
** Also Gohan himself, enduring all the stuff he did in the canon series, and MORE, while also have the problems of being the OnlySaneMan.
** Yamcha in season 3, especially in episode 35.
** Much like in canon, just poor poor Trunks. Wanting so badly to meet his father, and then Vegeta treats him like absolute shit. You can't help but feel really sorry for the kid.
*** Vegeta treats Trunks even worse here. At least in canon he never flat out called Trunks a bastard to his face.
** Episode 42 earns Kami some woobie points. He's been trapped up on the lookout for hundreds of years and now his duty as Guardian of Earth demands that he fuse with Piccolo, effectively surrendering his free will to someone he doesn't like and rid himself of centuries ago.
