* ShoutOut: The glowing walls of the Big Gete Star that Piccolo flies across look like the Star Gate from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' and the core looks like the core of the Death Star II from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.


* BeamSpam: How Vegeta manages to destroy one Meta-Cooler.



* SendInTheClones: [[spoiler:Just after Goku and Vegeta defeated Cooler and sat back in victory, they notice yet another Cooler on top of the cliffs above them. They then learn why the Japanese title of this movie is 10,000,000,000 Powerful Warriors, as an entire army of Coolers start sliding down the cliffs.]]

* PluckyComicRelief: Master Roshi, Yajirobe, and Oolong are only in the movie just to add levity. Roshi is unable to damage any of the robots, and Yajirobe and Oolong just act cowardly and don't fight at all. And while Yajirobe at least has an excuse for going to New Namek (Bulma forced him to), none is given for Roshi and Oolong.



* VillainBall: Cooler probably would have won if he just killed the Saiyans on the spot instead of bringing them into the heart of his hideout, giving them a slim chance to defeat him.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Although it's direct predecessor could loosely fit in the timeline, the same can't be said for this movie - all signs point towards this taking place during the Android Saga, which couldn't have happened since Future Trunks was completely absent, Goku not suffering from his heart virus, and Goku and friends having to travel to New Namek via spaceship (as opposed to having Goku just [=IT=] everyone over).

* NonSerialMovie: Probably one of the hardest movies to slot into continuity for a number of reasons, ranging from Gohan's age, Dende's status as Guardian of the Earth, etc. Supposedly it takes place between the ten days before the Cell Games, but even then that's a tough pill to swallow.

* AffablyEvil/FauxAffablyEvil: Cooler is just as equally brutal and civil as he was last movie, only now he's at an even greater extreme than last movie, enslaving Namek with an iron grip, yet also constantly complimenting the Saiyans for their combat abilities.

* AffablyEvil/FauxAffablyEvil: BigDamnHeroes: Midway through Goku and Cooler's fight, Vegeta drops in to save his rival from a deadly chokehold, joining the fight from then on.

It ends in a flash of light and cuts away to the inside of the Big Gete Star, Goku and Vegeta obviously utterly defeated.
