Quotes

Vegeta: No! My only target is Kakarot! I couldn't care less about your quarrel with the Kai!
Bibidi: What? By every fiber in your body I command you Vegeta! Kill the Kai!
Vegeta: NO! You may have taken over my mind and my body, but there's one thing a Saiyan always keeps: ...


Goofs

Piccolo claims that a long as his head is intact, he can regenerate from any injury. For example, he can regrow his arm or put himself back together after being broken to pieces. Yet he is gravely injured at several points during the series when his chest is hurt, and his head is intact during his first death, but still dies.


Alternate Versions

The Hungarian dub, based on the infamous French version, renamed some characters even further. The Saiyans came to be called "Starfighters". Piccolo was called "Young Satan". King Kai was called "Kaito" and his Kaio-Ken technique became "Kaito, empower me!" or "Come forward, Kaito!". Frieza was originally called Dermesztina (Freeze-Tina), but was rechristened Dermesztö (Freezer) later when the translator found out that he's male. Dabura was called "Devla", after the God of the Romani people. Pui-Pui and Yacon were simplified to "Pipi" and "Yaco". The Kamehameha attack was always spoken as "Kamehame". Most of these changes were then carried over into the dub of Dragon Ball GT, which was based on the original Japanese version.
