In episode 120 of Dragon Ball Kai during the Majin Buu saga, music plays during Vegeta's sacrifice that sounds suspiciously similar to "Fantasia Alla Marcia" from Kingdom Hearts 2.

I have no idea who the composer is, but the previous one, Kenji Yamamoto, was notorious for plagiarizing other people's work and was supposedly fired for it. What do you think, plagiarism or coincidence?

It's all in your head. I believe there's plenty of composed music that go through the same thing; maybe a note or two that's almost identical but isn't a big deal.

I think they definitely have some similarities (same key signature and time signature, song structure perhaps?). It's different enough that I wouldn't call it plagiarized.
