another notable thing about toriyama is the names that he gives to his characters- a lot of them are thematic
For example, in Dr. Slump there are characters named Senbei and Arare, which are types of cookie or cracker. In dragonball you have names like Buruma (bloomers) and Trunks, which are both names of clothes, or the Saiyans Kakarotto, Vegita, Radditz which are vegetables. Piccolo is a musical instrument. Gyoza, Tenshinhan and Yamcha have to do with food etc.etc.etc. all the names are done on purpose and are jokes.
