    Like in the previous series Dragonball, Dragon Ball Z has many naming conventions/jokes. Saiyans are all named after vegetables. Vegeta, both the prince, his king father and the Saiyan home planet (originally named Planet Plant), means Vegetable; Raditz is 'radish', and Kakkorotto is 'carrot'. The villain Freeza (originally Friezer) comes obvious, and his brother Cooler and their father King Cold. All Namekians born from the villain in Dragonball were named after instruments (Piccolo, Drum, etc.) The Briefs family were all named after underwear, Bulma meaning panties, Doctor Briefs himself, Trunks, and Bra. And of course, various characters named after foods. Oolong, as in the tea; Videl, like the onion variety; Ginger, obvious; Spice; Blueberry; Raspberry; Raisin; Almond; Apple; and in Dragonball there was an entire family (of about 12) named after desserts. The name Videl is actually an anagram of "Devil" because her dad is Mr. Satan (at least in the Japanese version).

    Goof (factual errors): The popular line where Nappa asks what Goku's power level is and Vegeta screams "Its over 9000!" and crushes his scouter in the English Dub is actually incorrect. In the Japanese Manga he screams that it is over 8000, not 9000.

    Goof (plot holes): In the Majin Buu saga, Shen is well aware that two henchmen joined the martial arts tournament to drain the energy from someone extremely powerful, who ends up being Gohan. Shen allows this to be able to follow the henchmen and find their spaceship, where Majin Buu will be resurrected. However, if he would have impeded Gohan's energy drain in the first place, or in fact just even told the Z Fighters of everything before the henchmen attacked, the whole Majin Buu saga would be non-existent, as Majin Buu would not be able to be resurrected.
