* In the Junior matches of the 25th Tournament, Bulma gives the snobby parent verbal taunting like she's reverted back to her sixteen-year-old self. But when the snobby parent finally loses it after Goten knocks her second son out, it's Chi-Chi who punches her out and says "Looks like I still got it, huh?". It's an awesome call back to when she made it to the final rounds of the 23rd Tournament way back in the original ''Anime/DragonBall''.

Added DiffLines:

* The infamous [[MemeticMutation "IT'S OVER 9,000"]] scene gets one for both versions: in the first version, it feels great hearing Creator/ChristopherSabat say the line in pure LargeHam fashion. In the second one, they ''finally'' corrected it so it's ''over 8,000 instead of 9.'' This would be carried over to future adaptations from here on.

* As mundane as it may seem, for many English fans, ''finally'' being able to hear [[OnlyOneName Goku's]] surname in the dub ''certainly'' qualifies as a CMOA, especially given [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya the context]]. And for bonus points, Creator/SeanSchemmel was the one who lobbied for it to happen.

** You aren't the only one, as a kid, I never knew of Goku's last name, I only found out as I got a little older getting my hands on the manga... so hearing good ol' Sean say, "Son Goku"... yeah I kinda [[{{Squee}} geeked out]].
*** Yeah, that moment vindicated Funimation forever as far as ''Dragon Ball'' dubbing goes. All the improvements they've been doing in both the scripting and voice acting departments, which was slowly showing through with the video games, all just culminated with the ''Kai'' dub and IMO exploded in those three seconds.
---> '''"I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!!!"'''
** If only they kept the name in Battle of Gods' dub. For some reason, they have Goku say "Sir Goku" instead of "Son Goku" & it makes the line sound a bit awkward.
** Even better, supposedly it was Creator/SeanSchemmel, the voice of Goku, himself who lobbied for the chance to say the full name in the dub.
* The dub, in general, being more accurate to the original Japanese with better voice acting to boot. It's vindicated Creator/FUNimation further as a competent dubbing company & gave dub fans who don't care for Z's dub a dub to watch.
** As a fan who never really got into the DBZ dub because of the scripting & voice acting, it's been great actually watching this series & not cringing at bad translation, or bad voice acting, or the bad insert dialogue dubs felt the need to throw in back then.
* The fact that it's been uncanceled.

* The original ''Dragon Ball Z'' was a well-loved icon on Cartoon Network's Creator/{{Toonami}} block, with the Ocean dub managing to find its ground on the block after a failed syndication run, bringing in some of the highest ratings the network has ever seen, and convincing Funimation to continue the english dub in-house. Fast forward to 2014, a couple years after Toonami was officially revived as a Saturday night block on Creator/AdultSwim, and the production crew has [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-05-24/dragon-ball-z-kai-to-run-on-adult-swim-toonami-block/.74885 confirmed]] that, following in the footsteps of the original, ''Dragon Ball Z Kai'' would officially be airing in Fall.
