  • Their method of releasing Samurai Pizza Cats and Monster Rancher: releasing the original Japanese dubs with English subtitles and the edited English dubs separately. This gives anime purists the original uncut version and the audience who enjoyed the shows as children the version they grew up on.
  • Anytime they swoop in and license a show that has been out of print for years.
  • The rescuing of Cyborg 009, Blue Submarine No. 6, Ronin Warriors, and IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix count as this for Toonami fans.
    • The DVD re-release for IGPX will feature at least three different versions of the TV series (the original version with Japanese and English audio, and the Toonami broadcast version), four different versions of the original micro-series, and interviews of the cast and crew who worked on the show, among other things. After the show got written off by Cartoon Network and the Bandai Entertainment DVDs went out of print, it's both heartwarming and awesome to see such an extensive and respectable rerelease for an underappreciated show.

  • With the rescuing of the American Street Fighter cartoon, fans have started clamoring for Discotek to also rescue more shows of its kind, such as Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm and the American Darkstalkers cartoon. It's very touching, considering the reputation these shows tend to have.
  • Discotek's release of Bananya includes a special feature of cat photos, submitted and included on the disc by any fan who donated at least $50 to an animal charity. Discotek matched all the donations and split them between the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and The Way Home Rescue for Cats and Kittens Orlando. Not only did they provide the fans with a unique and adorable bonus feature, they gave back to help animals as well.
