  • When Goku and Oob emerge from their sparring session and collapse, Dende asks Popo to retrieve a first aid kit in the FUNimation dub. This should not be necessary because Dende has healing abilities at his disposal.
  • The FUNimation dub states that DBGT takes place a decade after DBZ, but the Japanese dub states 5 years.


  • Some people see Pilaf being alive as a plothole since the "evil" people were not wished back at the end of Dragon Ball Z. An explanation for this would be that Pilaf was not truly "evil".

"As Goku and Uub fight inside Dende's lookout, Emperor Pilaf scales the outside of the lookout, and sneaks in to the inner chamber, unnoticed. He finds the Black Star Dragon Balls, and summons the dragon. He is interrupted by Goku. Frustrated, he says that he wishes Goku were a child again so he could beat him up. The dragon grants this accidental wish, and Goku becomes a child. After Pilaf leaves, King Kai tells Goku that the only way he can return to normal is by finding the Black Star Dragon Balls, which are now scattered throughout the galaxy. Goku decides it will be easier to just grow up again, and he heads into town. There he finds Pan foiling a bank robbery. He heads home for the first time in years with her, and explains to everyone what happened. King Kai interrupts their conversation. He has discovered that when a wish is made on the Black Star Dragon Balls, the planet the wish was made on will explode within one year unless the seven balls are brought back." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.
