In Other Media
- Zangya's name comes from "zangyaku (残虐)", which means "cruelty" or "brutality", since she had no qualms watching Son Gohan being squeezed to death by Bōjakku; and that she attacks her opponents relentlessy or her admiration for strong men.
- She holds the distinction of being the only female henchman to appear in a Dragon Ball Z movie.
- Though not exactly stated, in the movie she seems to have the ability to transform, which could possibly make her the third of Bōjakku's gang to transform. However, she was never given a second form in the games.
- She's the second member of Bōjakku's team not to be killed by Gohan, (as Gokua was slain by Trunks).
