Dragonball, Z, GT Name Translations

Here is a list of the most important characters in Dragonball. In the first column, you'll find the name in Japanese symbols called Kanji or Kana. These are translated in the second column. This translation of characters into Western writing is based on how the kanji sound, and it's called Romanji. The third column is how the translation of the Japanese kanji is 'supposed' to be: the kanji don't approach English speach exactly, therefore some adjustments have to be made. * means that I haven't seen that name spelled by FUNimation yet.

* This is one of the more subtle jokes of Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragonball. In the Disney classic 'Cinderella' there's a song that goes:

Bibidi Babidi Buu

Salagadoola mechicka boola Bibidi Babidi Buu
Put 'em together and what have you got
Bibidi Babidi Buu

Salagadoola mechicka boola Bibidi Babidi Buu
It'll do magic believe it or not
Bibidi Babidi Buu

Salagadoola means mechicka booleroo
But the thingmabob that does the job is
Bibidi Babidi Buu

(Everyone join in now...)

Salagadoola menchicka boola Bibidi Babidi Buu
Put 'em together and what have you got
Bibidi Babidi Bibidi Babidi
