In Dragon Ball Fusions , the ability to absorb a Spirit Bomb appears as a Special Move named Spirit Bomb Absorption . The user creates a Spirit Bomb and then absorbs it into themself to grant them the "Spirit" status effect which increases Melee and Ki Blast power along with defense and speed. Unlike Spirit Bomb Super Saiyan, Spirit Bomb Absorption functions independently of the Super Saiyan form as it can be performed by an Earthling named Quiche. Goku can perform the technique only in his Super Saiyan form which is likely a reference to its use in Super Android 13! .
In 2004, Pioneer lost its distribution rights to the first 53/67 episodes of Dragon Ball Z , allowing Funimation to re-dub them with their in-house voice cast and restore the removed content.  This dub's background score was composed by Nathan M. Johnson. Funimation's new uncut dub of these episodes aired on Cartoon Network during the summer of 2005 (in late night , due to the unedited content).    Funimation's later remastered DVDs of the series saw minor changes made to their in-house dub for quality and consistency, mostly after the episode 67 gap, and had the option to play the entire series' dub with both the American and Japanese background music.
