  • The comments made by Goku and the Kai about Gohan being the rightful person to protect the Earth is exclusive to the anime.
  • The fight between Gohan and Super Buu was extended for the anime with additional attacks being thrown on both sides such as Super Buu curling into a ball to strike Gohan, an attack he previously used against Gotenks.
