This is a list of scenes that happened in the Dragon Ball manga, but were shown differently in the Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z animes.


Emperor Pilaf Saga

Main article: Emperor Pilaf Saga

  • At the beginning of "The Secret of the Dragon Balls", Goku punched a tree stump and all the wood fell neatly in a stack. In the manga they all scattered on the floor and Goku is shown picking the pieces up.
  • In "The Secret of the Dragon Balls", a filler scene of Goku being chased by a Sabertooth cat leads him off a cliff and into the lake giving him the idea of catching him a fish. In the manga Goku peacefully walks by to see the cliff and voluntarily jumps off to go catch a fish.
  • When Goku defeats the Pterodactyl in "Secret of the Dragon Balls" it falls down a cliff. In the manga it just falls on flat ground.
  • Throughout the anime, Mai can be seen wearing makeup when on active duty, whereas in the manga she does not wear any. Mai also doesn't appear in the manga until a panel similar to the scene in the episode, "The Dragon Balls are Stolen!."
