Trivia / Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F

Go To

  • Creator Couple: Real-life couple Cristina Hernández and Ricardo Tejedo voice Marron and Tagoma in the Latin American Spanish dub, respectively.
  • Directed by Cast Member:
  • Fan Nickname: Fans have taken to the terms Blueper Saiyan and Super Cyan for Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

  • Old Shame: Animator Hisashi Eguchi, a talented animator that has worked on Dragon Ball and series such as Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell, criticized the film and Tadayoshi Yamamuro in a now-deleted twitter conversation with Masaki Sato. While he was promised he could do whatever he wanted without following the storyboard, he found his section being completely redrawn by Yamamuro. Both of them then called him a "big fish in a small pond" that sticks to one franchise without ever progressing.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
    • The voices of Frieza and Bulma play the characters Baikinman and Dokinchan on Anpanman, where the latter also gets to yell at the former quite a bit.
    • Frieza, Piccolo and Beerus's voice actors worked together previously as Jose Carioca, Panchito Pistoles and Donald Duck respectively in the Japanese dub of that film, making the entire plot smack dab in Hilarious in Hindsight territory.

    • In a similar way, Beerus and Sorbet's (Shiro Saito) voice actors previously worked together in the Japanese dub of Borat as the titular character and Azamat respectively.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • Maximum the Hormone wrote 'F', dedicated to Frieza. Akira Toriyama listened to it and not only did it inspire him to create this movie, he even got 'F' featured as an Insert Song in it. What was originally a fan-made Filk Song ended up becoming the inspiration for a new movie and was used in the movie itself.
    • Scott Frerichs (KaiserNeko) of Team Four Star plays one of Frieza's mooks.
  • Real-Life Relative:
    • Eduardo Tejedo (one of the voices of the thieves in the Latin American Spanish dub) is the father of Ricardo Tejedo (Tagoma's Latin American VA).
    • Also from the Latin American dub, Alejandro Orozco, the younger son of Beerus's VA José Luis Orozco, provided additional voices in the film. Alejandro's older brother and José Luis's other son, Luis Fernando Orozco, voiced Trunks in the Latin American dub of Dragon Ball Kai.

  • Trolling Creator: Toriyama himself said during the movie's development that Goku wouldn't go Super Saiyan over the course of the movie, and in a sense, he was technically correct. The Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form isn't the base Super Saiyan form. Rather, it's what the Super Saiyan form becomes with Saiyans who have absorbed and mastered the Super Saiyan God form's energy.
  • What Could Have Been: After Battle of Gods came out, Toriyama expressed that he wanted the next film to focus primarily on Vegeta as the central character. Resurrection 'F' would have been the perfect opportunity to capitalize on that idea considering Vegeta's dark, tortured past with Frieza and the fact that he never got to personally make Frieza answer for the heinous crimes he committed against him, so many fans were expecting Vegeta to be much more important in the film than he ended up being. It's likely that Toriyama changed his mind when Super was green-lit, saving the heavy Vegeta focus for the show instead.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Dragon Ball Wiki.

  • A large portion of the original Dragon Ball cast - Goku, Bulma, Master Roshi, Krillin, Tien, and Piccolo - serve as the movie's main/supporting cast, with only Gohan and Vegeta being from pre-Battle of Gods Dragon Ball Z.
