Differences from the animeEdit

  • In the manga, when Goku punched a tree stump all the wood was scattered on the floor and Goku is shown picking the pieces up. In the anime they all fell neatly in a stack.
  • In the manga Goku peacefully walks by a cliff and voluntarily jumps off to go catch a fish. In the anime Goku is chased by a Sabertooth Tiger that leads him off a cliff and into the lake giving him the idea of catching him a fish.
  • Bulma's panties are plain white in the first chapter of the manga but in the first episode of the anime they are white with pink polka dots.
  • All the scenes of Emperor Pilaf and his minions, Shu and Mai, are not featured. They are not introduced until Wish Upon A Dragon.
  • In the manga, when Goku defeats the pterodactyl, it falls on flat ground. In the anime, it falls down a cliff.
