Differences from the manga

  • Pyontat trying to comfort Webley, only to be punched out cold by the crying boy, is not in the manga. In the manga, the announcer clarifies that Pyontat won due to Webley bursting into tears while the anime (in the English dub, at least) has Webley win by knocking out Pyontat with a punch. Also, the kids' names are only spoken in the manga.
  • Trunks telling another fighter in the Youth division that he already knows the result of the Goten vs. Ikose fight is exclusive to the anime.
  • Gohan trying to cut in line for the Punching Machine so he can hurry up and see Goten fight Trunks is exclusive to the anime.
    • In the manga, Gohan shows up just before the two start fighting, whereas in the anime, he shows up shortly after they have started fighting and Goku and Krillin tease him about being with Videl.
