Trivia / Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods

  • Author Existence Failure: Battle of Gods marked Kenji Utsumi's final role as Shenron before his death less than three months after its release.
  • Casting Gag:
    • It's not the first time Koichi Yamadera has voiced an amoral god, except the last time it was from an online game.
    • The same goes with Beerus's Mexican voice actor (José Luis Orozco), as he previously voiced a cat, except he was dumber.
    • In addition to José Luis Orozco, who voiced Suppaman in the Dragon Ball crossover with Dr. Slump, the Mexican Spanish dub brings back ten voice actors from the Dragon Ball franchise, albeit in different roles: Arturo Castañeda (who voices the crying child in Dragon Ball Z) is the voice of Whis, Javier Olguín (the voice of Bubbles in Kai) is the voice of Dende, José Gilberto Vilchis (the voice of Burter in Kai) voices the Supreme Kai and Luis Daniel Ramírez (the voice of Krillin in the Buu saga) reprises his role as young Vegeta, while Circe Luna (the voice of Pan), Carlos Olizar (the voice of the Saibamen and Cell Juniors in Z), Rebeca Gómez (Pares's VA in GT), José Antonio Macías (the voice of Yamcha in Dragon Ball Evolution), Enzo Fortuny (the voice of Goku in the trailer for Evolution), Dafnis Fernández (the voice of Frieza in the first 98 episodes of Kai) and Eduardo Fonseca (the voice of King Kai in Kai) are additional voices.
  • Directed by Cast Member: The Mexican Spanish dub of the film was directed by Eduardo Garza, who also voiced Krillin.
  • Fan Nickname: Super Saiyan God Goku is some times called Godku among the fandom.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Mexican Spanish dub:
    • Irwin Daayán stepped down from the role of Dende due to the negative reception of Dragon Ball Kai, in which he served as dubbing director; Javier Olguín replaced him.
    • Héctor Lee provides the voice of King Kai.
    • Miguel Ángel Sanróman provides the voice of Master Roshi due to Jesús Colín's death.
    • Since Mai and Shu were regressed to children at the start of the film, Susana Moreno and Miguel Ángel Leal provide their respective voices.
    • Ernesto Lezama voices the Supreme Kai because of his original VA Enrique Mederos's death.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Band FLOW (who performed the film's themes) and Shoko Nakagawa (voice of the Oracle Fish) were all fans of the series growing up.
  • Real-Life Relative:
    • In the Mexican Spanish dub, Arturo Castañeda and Mario Castañeda (the voice actors of Whis and Goku, respectively) are father and son, making their relationship in the movie somewhat Hilarious in Hindsight.
    • Also from the Mexican Spanish dub, Susana Moreno (Mai's VA) is the niece of Eduardo Garza (the voice actor for Krillin).
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Apparently, making this film was Toriyama's personal vengeance for Dragonball Evolution (it being his way of showing Hollywood how to make a proper Dragonball film).
  • What Could Have Been: Beerus was a drastically different character before being further developed. Beerus was originally a lizard alien, spreader of a Hate Plague, and overall a more villainous character.
