Top Ten Best Dragon Ball Z Movies


The Top TenXW

1Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan

Broly was an amazing character despite the fact that he was a sadistic bastard you couldn't help but feel sorry for him, being controlled by his father and doomed to insanity I never wanted a vilian to turn into good guy more then him!

It was amazing and that battle was awesome except for when goku defeated him with one punch from the basically dead z fighters. The ending in broly the second coming was better when they did the family kamehaeha with goten and gohan, but all in all the first broly movie was the best.

Broly was what made the movie awesome. While the ending might not have been the best, in a way, if you look at and try to see if it was remotely good, you can tolerate the ending, and maybe like it. Personally, I kind of liked the climactic part to it, and it almost fit. It was a really good movie over all.

I loved the story and the fight scenes. You can't help but feel sorry for Broly because he was tormented by Goku's wailing when they were babies.

2Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods

Great movie for comedy and action. The main villains are very interesting and unique compared to other DBZ movie villains. The fighting style of Bill's is a treat to watch very much a throw back to classic martial arts and you see his melee based arts shift as he fights tougher opponents. This movie did a great job of balancing the old while introducing new elements.

The movie really sets the stage for the future of the Dragon Ball Z series from hence forth this movie has revived it.

I loved the animation and fighting scenes. I believe the movie incorporated all the main Z fighters and overall had everybody in it which I found awesome. Had really funny moments and the the villain was really good. Have to watch it!

This movie is awesome. Through only this movie we knew the "God" form of Goku. Moreover animation of movie and fighting technique of villian Bills are extremly superb.

The return of a legend after 2 decades. It couldn't be more awesome. I was literally jumping on my seat when I knew that Dragon Ball was coming back! - Goku02

3Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn

Fusion reborn was wow it was not only the greatest dbz movie of all time it was also the greatest animated movie of all time all hope is lost and then out of nowhere gogeta what the new legendary super saiyan

The comedy and action in this movie are top notch, the villain was decent, the fusion amazing, and the going back and forth between the living world and the other world kept me very entertained. Has always been my favorite dbz movie, not even Battle of Gods could surpass it.

By far the best DBZ movie! I loved the separation of battles! Earth had its own minor skirmish, and then in the other dimension Goku, Vegeta, and Pikon vs the incarnation of all evil! What's not to love!

This movie was hilarious

4Dragon Ball Z - Bardock: The Father of Goku

The best movie I have ever seen that's why I put it at the top - MikeyD11

Best dragonball movie ever. Needs to be number one.

Awesome movie that's all I have to say just awesome because we get to see the life bardock whent through and how Frieza betrayed the saiyans - MD64

I like the movie a lot amazing

5Dragon Ball Z - The History of Trunks

Easily the most heartfelt of the movies. The history of trunks really helps you understand the nightmare that is the future. Trunk's first transformation was sick too

Why is this so far down. It is the second best movie the first being Bardock. Both are tragic and have different plots then z fighters get beat up the z fighters get back up and beat the bad guy easily.

Man Trunks going ssj at gohan was amazing I mean like Goku go ssj because krillin died
Later got revived by dragon balls but in trunks timeline everyone was dead by androids then gohan died and never got revived since piccolo's dead and kami's dead too dragon balls disappear.

Controversial Opinion: History of Trunks is better than the entirety of DBZ

6Dragon Ball Z - Bojack Unbound

How is this movie so far down the list. Gohan was so badass in this its unbelievable.

This movie is awesome. The tournament brings back DragonBall memories, and has the classic characters dueling it out. Gohan proves again how much of a badass he is!

Gohan was so badass in this movie, I love it, and the tourney in the beginning was also really enjoyable to watch

Seriously BIO BROLY is better than this!

7Dragon Ball Z - The Return of Cooler

Why is this here two times on the list? I'm just gonna say what I said before:

Screw this movie. It makes no sense. Its heavily implied that Piccolo is fused with Kami already which means he was stronger than Super Saiyan Goku and Super Saiyan Vegeta COMBINED. Why wasn't he fighting Cooler? Also, Hitting robots really hard doesn't even make sense. Its also basically a copy of Frieza's life in the DBZ universe. The only reason I voted for it was because of the clean Animation and Drawing. Also, Its still better than Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan (The entire trilogy).

This was the only movie in which Goku and Vegeta fought as equals, not Goku surpassing him. This deserves one of the top 3 as there was no plox hax, and Goku and Vegeta beat the villain off their own power.

The original was so awesome, but this sequel made Cooler "20% Cooler". Throw in some funny moments with Master Roshi, Oolong, and Yajirobe, plus a kickass fight of SSJ Goku and SSJ Vegeta against Meta Cooler, and you have a sequel worth taking a look at it Cooler is your favorite DBZ villain.

8Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection of F

The definitive Dragon Ball Z experience. It's packed with action, humour and tons of epic moments. It was a fantastic theatre experience. It's some of the best this long-running franchise has to offer.

So much awesomeness packed into one movie. The best action, the best humour, the best villain, the best transformations, and the best soundtrack. The BEST Dragon Ball movie

The fights in this movie were so sick. Seeing Dragon Ball on the big screen in a room full of fans was quite the experience!

It should be in top tens this movie is just awesome

9Dragon Ball Z - Broly's Second Coming

Well I have watched them all and it is awesome

Starts off cute, becomes funny, then pretty serious and straight forward. Just what everyone needs in a DBZ movie. And I loved Videl's design in this one. - 8Gon_Soku8

It was funny to see two kids encountering this killer

Its very very nice and funny and action

10Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge

In terms of animation quality, drama and story telling, this is by far the best Dragonball Z movie ever created. It not only does the series and the characters justice by expanding on the existing universe (even though it's non-canon) and gives us a very interesting revenge story, it also includes one of the best and most intimidating villains to come out of the show, and lays the groundwork for one hell of a final act.

Man when I just saw this movie I thought cooler was the strongest when he used supernova I thought how could goku get outta this but he always has I way to get outta situations like these

Extremely cool movie. I thought it would be further up there on this list. Cooler's final form transformation was total beast. He looks like a ninja with super speed and super strength. He actually stands up to a SSJ with his ultimate technique: SUPERNOVA which can destroy planets.

Cooler > Frieza

11Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13

This is a great movie. I almost crapped my pants when Goku absorbs the spirit bomb and goes berserk.

Sure everybody thought Android 13, 14, and 15 were bland villains (like how many Androids did Dr. Gero actually make? ) and the final battle isn't the best fight in DBZ history, but it's a very enjoyable film and I highly recommend to those fans of the Androids/Cell Saga.

The best ever watched movie, therefor should be at number one

This movie is awesome

12Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon

This is in my opinion the second best DBZ movie ever, how it is so low on the list I have no idea. You get to see Trunks get his sword, and Goku's first time using Dragon Fist technique. Goku is always badass but he was exceptionally so in this movie! 10/10 Loved it!

Hands down the best film in the DBZ series! It has a great plot and the best character development of all the films. This one may not have the energetic and zealous fight scenes, but it makes up in the story department. I have no clue why it is so low, dumbfounded...

This is a character driven dbz film

This movie is in my opinion one of the best DBZ movies second only to the first Broly movie. This should be at least in the top 5!

13Dragonball Z: Lord Slug

I am not saying this movie deserves to be top 5. To be honest, I like the later movies way better than this. But at least, this movie has the False Super Saiyan Transformation. If you don't know what I am talking about, watch this movie and learn about the unique transformation.

The False Super Saiyan transformation is by far my favorite. But it kinda came out of nowhere. This movie deserves a better spot on this list.

Lord slug is a badass and this movie proves it. It's all around great in every way

This film made Disturbed one of my favorite modern rock bands of all time.

14Dragon Ball Z - Tree of Might

This film has some of the best animated fights from the series plus Turles was a badass. The Broly films suck and shouldn't even be in the top ten.

Tired of super saiyans. This one showed each z warrior ( except vegeta) go at it against turles gang. Epic fight nice plot. Excellent movie

Turles is my favorite character. I love his voice in the Big Green dub! He was such a good villain and he will hopefully be great in the upcoming game, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2! He appears in the trailer so hopefully he'll be in it, Xenoverse 1 had his armor and a few bits of dialogue about him.

15DragonBall Z: Fusion - Hope Returns

This isn't really a movie, But it still deserves a vote.

17Dragon Ball Z the Movie: The World's Strongest

Amazing movie, and Piccolo is so badass here.

Oh, how I love this movie. It's just nothing but fun which is what I love about it. Man, I still have it at home

Piccolo is a total badass in this movie. Hell, they even made Master Roshi/Kame-Sen'nin a badass again like in the original series.

DR. Willow is a rather interresting villain. Same as his minions and the Bio-Men

Well, I'm not going to spoil anything. Watch the movie if you're a DBZ fan, because you're gonna love it.

18Dragon Ball Z: Yo Son Goku and His Friends Return

This is a really good movie. It fits right in with the DBZ universe. Plus, Its really funny. This should honestly be higher on the list, With the clean Animation and Drawing, And a good plot.

"This is one of the best movies in Dragon ball z series "

The people who loved dragon ball z they should watch this movie

20Return of Cooler

Screw this movie. It makes no sense. Its heavily implied that Piccolo is fused with Kami already which means he was stronger than Super Saiyan Goku and Super Saiyan Vegeta COMBINED. Why wasn't he fighting Cooler? Also, Hitting robots really hard doesn't even make sense. Its also basically a copy of Frieza's life in the DBZ universe. The only reason I voted for it was because of the clean Animation and Drawing. Also, Its still better than Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan (The entire trilogy).

Piccolo was never given much importance. I loved the King Piccolo saga and fusion of Piccolo with Kami and Nail. But even all that and Piccolo is still underrated. Well at least he got the title - 'True Father Of Gohan' which of all I loved the most. - jerk4life

Both Goku and Vegeta face an extremely hard foe that is Cooler and it was funny especially with the rest of the weaker Z Warriors.
