** Vegeta swore to never fight again after the death of Goku, which he adhere's to at first, before coming out of retirement to attack Bojack. Trunks actually lampshades this after his father helps him.

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: While Bojack has some sort of backstory, he and his crew are pretty much this. They don't have a clear backstory or motivation other than mindless destruction and proving they are superior. While King Kai said they were trapped in a star by all the Kaiosamas, how he became that powerful that the Kaiosamas had to intervene or any information about Bojack crew is left untouched. All we know is that they are really powerful SpacePirates, and that's it.

* InexplicablyAwesome: Exactly what Bojack and his crew are never explained, yet he is more powerful than a Super Saiyan.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuitySnarl: Mostly averted. This film fits into the Post-Cell Games timeline pretty neatly aside from a couple minor issues:
** Trunks was never noted to return to the past after defeating the Androids and Cell of his time.
** Vegeta swore to never fight again after the death f Goku, which he adhere's to at first, before coming out of retirement to attack Bojack.
** While it was anime filler, Goku and King Kai didn't stay in the ruins of King Kai's planet for long before going off to see other parts of Other World.


* BadassNormal: Tien and Yamcha (when compared with who they're fighting against). They could sense that who they were fighting was powerful, but they charged in swinging.


* FlatCharacter: All of the Galaxy Soldiers, save perhaps Zangya. It doesn't help that they don't have enough dialogues to get some sort of personality or motivation for their acts. Zangya remains quite memorable among fans due to being the only major female villain (save for Android 18 and Princess Snake) in the ''Z'' saga.

The film is notable for being the first (and so far, only) film ''not'' to receive an abridged adaptation in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', due to the creators of said series suffering from burnout and the fact that Bojack's dialogue is mostly limited to one-liners.

* NonSerialMovie: The film is set sometime after the Cell games. The only thing that prevents it from completely fitting in the timeline is Future Trunks being present, but in the anime Future Trunks explicitly mentoins paying the past one final visit to tell them of how he freed the future (he is interrupted by his timeline's Cell, and the last seen of Future Trunks in ''Z'' is him taking care of that Cell), so there's that.

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Bojack is about as strong as Cell, if not stronger. Unfortunately for him, he came ''after'' Gohan had unlocked a form that ultimately made that a cake walk. Unlike most NonSerialMovie villains, Bojack also doesn't seem to be stronger than the previous movie villain, Broly, as Broly could take on Gohan, Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo and Trunks at the same time, which puts him well above Perfect Cell, who would at the very least have a decent workout on his hands with any single one of those. Bojack is roughly on Cell's level and defeats Vegeta, Piccolo and Trunks in succession, although each of them holds their own for a bit.

** The fights move to the private island, where the final four contestants have to fight Mr. Satan's disguised students in four arenas built underneath the island. They have to ride special pods going through tunnels to get their assigned arenas, which are brought to life via virtual reality.

* BigDamnHeroes: Vegeta and Piccolo arrive to assist the heroes as usual for the movies; the former hands Future Trunks his sword and the latter saves Gohan from another fatal attack again. The standout, however, is Goku. He ''defies the laws of Other World'' to save Gohan from being crushed to death in a bear hug from Bojack and inspire him to tap into his inner strength and defeat Bojack.
