Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta's Final Shine Attack is incorrectly colored Blue in this game, in Dragon Ball GT (where the attack comes from) it's green. What's strange about this is the fact that in it's predecessor this attack is the correct color.

In the Character Reference section, Chi-Chi says that she would like to have met Grandpa Gohan. However, she met him in the last episodes of Dragon Ball. The game might be disregarding this, as it was anime-only filler.

In "Dragon History", the game's story mode, during the fight with Nam, Mr. Satan/Hercule is shown on the signs and blimps even though he is not the champion at that point in the story. This can be attributed to the stage being more or less the same throughout the series, so making a whole new stage without Mr. Satan/Hercule just for this scenario would be wasteful.

Vegeta (Scouter)'s second and third attires have no tail, but he can still transform into a Great Ape. This is odd as, according to the story, Saiyans require their tail to transform.

If Nuova and Syn Shenron fight each other, Nuova will refer to Syn as "Omega Shenron" in his pre-battle introductory speech. This may be because in the anime, Nuova only fights Syn in his Omega form.
