This is the only movie (and only time in all DBZ, for that matter) in which Yamcha wears a Gi with the turtle symbol on the front and the King Kai symbol on the back. His Gi of choice after being resurrected in the series is the opposite (Kai in front, turtle at the back - and he is the only character to wear a Gi of this style). See more
Gohan gets his dragon in this movie, which could never have taken place. Yet the dragon actually shows up later on in the series. See more
