Controversy and plot holes

As the Dragon Ball Z movies are not canon, there are many inconsistencies with the actual plot of the series. While each movie has its own issues, these are among the most troublesome:

  • Movie 1 has Kuririn not being surprised by Son Gohan's existence, insinuating that he knew about him. In the Dragon Ball manga and the Dragon Ball Z TV series, Kuririn meets Gohan for the first time only hours before Son Gokū is killed by Piccolo in order to defeat Raditz. Since Gokū is in this movie searching for Gohan, then chronologically this movie could not have existed in the context of the TV series.
  • In Movie 13, Tapion gives Chibi Trunks a sword. In order to show the origin of future trunks sword,Tapion and the events in movie 13 must have happened in Mirai Trunks's timeline however it does not. Despite the conflict between timelines this can't explain the origin of future trunks sword, the sword given by Tapion is apparently the same one that Chibi Trunks (then in his 20s) uses in Dragon Ball GT.
