* AlternateContinuity: The [[AllThereInTheManual Daizenshuu]] states that the movie takes place in a world parallel to the main timeline, set after Gero's death but before Cell becomes Perfect, explaining why Goku is up and about rather than bedridden from the heart virus.



* ArmorPiercingQuestion: As usual, Chi-Chi objects to Gohan helping out in the fight [[SkewedPriorities because he needs to study]]. Gohan promptly snaps and asks her if his education means more to her than Goku's life, which shocks Chi-Chi enough that she lets him go.



* ContinuitySnarl: The movie's prologue sets this after Gero died, but before Cell arrived. However, Goku's presence at a time when he should still be suffering from his heart virus, and the complete absence of Androids 16-18 makes this movie very hard to reconcile with the timeline.


* FusionDance: Android 13 assimilates with the broken remains of Android 14 and 15 to become Super Android 13.

* HypocriticalHumor: Krillin scolds Master Roshi and Oolong for voicing perverted thoughts about the beauty pageant they're going to in front of Future Trunks, only for Roshi to point out that he said basically the same things not even a minute ago.

* LullDestruction: Dialogue is added into the Funimation dub for the Androids where there clearly wasn't any in the original, which was defiantly not a bad thing given how little they talked in the original.

The death of Dr. Gero at the hands of Androids 17 and 18 prompts the activation of Androids 13, 14, and 15. They try to kill Goku, who fights them with the help of Trunks, Piccolo, Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan.
