[edit] Differences from the anime and the manga

  • The way Goku catches a fish in the beginning is different. He catches it by screaming loud instead of using his tail as bait. The fish he catches is also normal-sized, not a Giant Fish.
  • Bulma does not hit Goku with her car, but instead she meets Goku when the car is parked.
  • Bulma shoots Goku with a machine gun instead of a pistol when they meet.
  • Instead of lifting Bulma's skirt up to see if she has a tail, he grabs her bottom. Bulma also offers to to let Goku touch her bottom at his house, but she does not lift up her skirt.
  • The Dragon Radar flips open and has more than one button.
  • The Pteranodon Goku fights is replaced with a Human wearing some sort of a robot suit.
    • Goku defeats him differently as well. Instead of using Bulma's motorcycle to fly up and hit him with the Power Pole, he simply battles him in a normal fight.

[edit] Trivia

  • Out of all three of the live action adaptions, this one follows the original story the closest.
