The Top Ten

1
Goku vs. Frieza
Well there is a lot of good fight besides this one but this one has to be the best one is like frieza the ruler of the universe rule over other planets around the universe he killed all the saiyans and their planet veggeta and he killed all those namekians and vegeta bardock gokus father and king vegeta and krillin so is finally time to put an end to his terror and the baby saijan who was sent to earth before planet veggeta exploded he will one day grow up to defeat frieza and avenge all those who were killed by frieza as goku grew up he fought strong adversaries like king piccolo veggeta etc but without any doubt frieza is his ultimate test as he finally turns into the legendary super saijan and fights frieza alone in namek as is about to explode as namek is ready to explode is an epic place to batle with lighting volcanoes hurricanes etc is just epic and finally goku beats the ruler of the universe and avenges everybody
It was great because goku turned super saiyan for the first time and dying namek was a epic place to battle
Frieza is without a doubt the greatest villain of all time. His battle tactics are amazing, his fighting style and power are pheonomenal (at the time) and most importantly, It's what made Goku a Super Saiyan. It had epic dialogue and fluent battle scenes, with bone crunching martial arts combat and over powered ki blasts. Frieza is also a bad - ass villain, as he has the greatest ego of all time! Simply a classic of all fighting anime!

2Goku vs. Majin Vegeta
"HIS PRIDE! " most epic fight ever. Deserving of number one reason being because it wasn't really a one sided fight and vegeta finally wasn't getting his ass beat the entire time
This fight was the best fight of all time, not just in dragon ball z, but of any fight scene ever conceived, it had just the right amount of trash talk, exemplary amount of technique, but most of all, they landed an equal amount of shots on each other, however there are other fights like this, and so the thing that really tipped this over the edge for me, was that we had all been waiting for that rematch the day Goku and Vegeta fought in the Saiyan Saga. Literally the entirety of Dragon Ball Z was me waiting for that rematch and it was even better than the first fight. Easily the most brutal fight of all time.
Vegeta was waiting for this day to come, and it did turn out to be an Epic fight between two masters of classic fight!

3Gohan vs. Cell
Gohan vs Cell because Gohan was the first one to turn into ssj2 and he was the only one who stood a chance against the cell jrs. And Cell
Such a awesome battle. I still play it back in my mind when he did the Father-son Kamehameha. So emotional and touching. Plus he's cute Why isn't this #1? Yay Gohan! PEOPLE OF EARTH:YOUR SO-CALLED HERO HURCUEL DIDN'T KILL THE EVIL CELL. *GASP* THE SON OF GOKU SON DID. GIVE HIM SOME CREDIT. Yay Gohan!
Son Gohan : Free spirited, wild heart, courage beyond belief,
( For his age. )
Trained with Namek : Picolo Dynamo,
Before going to Namek with Earthling Krillin.

2 :He was believed to have a hidden potential,
which was awakened on a distant planet Namek.

3 : his father : Son Goku
trained with him in the hyperbolic time chamber,
A.K.A. (The room of spirit and time.)

4 : KICKED CELL From Earth To Hell.

4Goku vs. Kid Buu
Amazing fight the best from the buu saga, it gives me goosebumps every time I see it, I love when they both hit each other at the same time and goku gives him an epic kick on his back.
This fight was just pure badass and emotional at the same.
A fight can never be as epic as this one. And even for the first time kid buu almost reflected the huge Spirit bomb.

5Goku vs. Vegeta (Saiyan Saga)
This fight was by far the best, 2 saiyans end up fighting each other for the sake of planet earth. Everything was so timed correctly which made this fight interesting. Especially the galic gun and kamehameha part. It was an elite sayain warrior against an outcast who failed the mission of destroying earth and ends up protecting it agains someone of his own race and vegeta is royalty. None of these saiyans gave up until they had nothing left and all of there bones were broken, literally. The end of this fight ended up when goku uses his spirit bomb he learned from king kai and then gohan landing on him when he was in ape mode forcing him to leave planet earth because of the bad condition that he never expected from these warriors.
Simply the best battle of the entire DBZ saga. Everything about it is perfectly articulated. I don't think I've ever seen such a level of struggle in any other DB fight, with nearly everyone dying. It's Vegeta at his best, and he seems to be almost immortal. I think the ending suited perfectly, with Gohan finally defeating him, Goku forgiving his life and then Vegeta abandoning the planet, almost dead and in embarrassment. 8 brilliant episodes -- 14, to count Nappa and the Z Warriors battle.
No Match For this One... Hear Me You Trolls... If You Don't Vote This Fight... This Whole Site is Going Into Smoke...

6Piccolo vs. Android 17
Piccolo at his best! Piccolo fought his absolute hardest in this battle and he really proved himself a worthy adversary. It took Android 17 to bring that out of him and they both put on the greatest show

My favorite parts of this fight was when 17 came out of the ground to surprise attack Piccolo. That was awesome, laugh out loud. When 17 was underwater and turned the water molecules into his own blast, that was the most bad ass thing I'd ever seen anyone do. When Piccolo turned himself into a hologram, that was genius, and Piccolo's Hellzone grenade.
The fight I think was a lot better than some of the other fights. The buu saga pretty much devolved into haxing up your power level and then beating the crap out of the next opponent.

Sometimes its nice to watch, such as Goku vs Frieza, Vegeta vs Cell or Gohan vs Cell. But sometimes it goes overboard, and those fight scenes never really are the "best". Vegeta vs Goku (both times) were good, but I liked Piccolo vs 17 because it involved a lot of strategy and tactics, not just power haxing.
Strategically, this was the best fight in the whole series. They were mostly of equal power, so it took Tactics and planning to win instead of who's power level was higher. If you scaled either of these two up to the power levels of Goku or Vegeta, they could have been more than just background in the rest of the series, they could have been front line soldiers and game changers. With an adjusted power level, they could have taken on ANYONE.

7Vegito vs. Super Buu
Awesome because it was dads vs sons and the two strongest warriors in the universe merge as one in the ultimate grudge match against the immortal terror of the universe and beyond. I loved the part when buu threw his so called planet destroyer at vegito and all vegito did was kick it back at him and when vegito unleashead his SPIRIT SWORD!
I love the part when super buu turn vegito into a candy. Vegito (Candy form) beat the crap out of super buu and candy vegito can still talk to buu without any month
It should have been in the top 3. I believe this because vegito plays with buu as if he was a child, moreover he makes him angry by showing that he was inferior to the super vegito

8Goku vs. Cell
This is the best fight in DBZ, you just have to see it from the fight quality view, it may not have dramatic content as frezaa battle but, the speed, the movements and the technique both fighters use, its awesome, can't be compared to nothing you may see in other season or fight.
It had it all, the flashy attacks, the strength, the firepower, and let's not forget the Kamehameha. This fight truly lived up to Dragonball Z standards.
This is the best in my opinion. The best moment is Goku's Instantanous Kamehameha against Cell when everyone thought he'll destroy the earth.

9Goku vs. Piccolo (World Tournament)
I vote for this as the best battle, for many reasons.

Reason #1: It was the first battle where Goku was a true warrior. Even though Goku VS King Piccolo was the first real battle, Goku didn't look like a true warrior. It wasn't until this battle Goku appeared as a true warrior.

Reason #2: The battle was so evenly matched. Other MAJOR battles were never this even. Goku's power level was what a dozen higher than Piccolo's?

I do however think that this battle does need some improvement then it would be rated much higher.
To me, this was the most epic mano a mano match because these two fighters hated each other and their skill levels were pretty much even. Also, Goku wasn't as invincible as he is in DBZ. In this fight, he's vulnerable and mortal but is able to deliver a win. Goku vs Piccolo was an awe-inspiring fight.

bishop.moore07

It's my favorite because it shows real martial arts and it shows Goku, despite being in great pain, deliver in clutch time.

12Kid Trunks vs Goten

13Uub vs Buu (Hyperbolic Time Chamber)

17Mystic Gohan vs. Super Buu/Buutenks
This fight was great. Gohan was so epic in this fight.

18Ultimate Gohan vs Super Buu

19Piccolo vs Imperfect Cell

20Gogeta vs. Janemba

Awesome nobody stood a chance against janemba, not even ssj3 goku. But gogeta made it look rediculously easy, plus that line that goes "every force you create has an echo, your own bad energy will be your undoing. "

This fight was awesome! It was amazing to see vegeta and goku connect and destroy janemba


21Trunks vs Cyber Frieza and King Cold

22Majin Vegeta vs Majin Buu
Vegeta's best moment besides stalling kid buu. We got to see how powerful vegeta really was. Then the tables turned and awkward smiley fatboy showed his amazing power. After vegeta put on a show filled with bone crushing attacks and my personal favorite cinematic blast. He realized he had no chance and sacrificed himself. Vegeta is the mutha fluffin man.
This fight was amazing because it showed that vegeta left his pride behind to try and save earth and sacrifices his own life to kill buu by blowing himself up! And it shows that vegeta was trying to be the hero!
Second time vegeta got robbed... This should have killed buu and his final flash should have killed cell... But I loved both of those scenes

23Goku SSJ4 vs Baby Vegeta

24Goku vs. Fat Buu

25Gohan vs. Bojack
Liked this fight because gohan ll four of the and went super saiyen 2 and it was awesome when he gave
Bojack that speech "i know your kind you think you can walk in and take any planet you want well you forgot one thing I am my fathers SON!

26Goku and Vegeta vs Android 19

27Goku and Piccolo vs Raditz
This fight was America's first real taste of Dragon Ball Z. The fast-paced action was something that American audiences weren't used to at the time. Also, the fight was unique by the fact that the main hero dies at the end, which came as shock to an audience that is accustomed to the main hero surviving in battle.

28Goku vs. Ginyu Force
This battle shows how powerful Goku actually was after training in 100 times gravity. Goku worked very hard and It was finally time to see what he was made of. Also, The only member of the ginyu force who had fought was Recoome and he dominated Vegeta, Krillin, and Young Gohan whose power level was over 50,000. Goku came and dominated every one without breaking a sweat

29GT Goku vs Omega Shenron

30Kid Goku vs Jackie Chun (Master Roshi)
I honestly liked Dragon Ball better than Z. I loved kid Goku, with his never give up, happy-go-lucky, after-this-can-we-get-a-snack attitude. We get to see here as Goku practically surpasses his teacher without knowing it. This fight proved both that Goku isn't just some stupid kid with all the strategies he improvises (learning the triple after-image technique), and that Roshi is not just some dirty old man, but actually an awesome marshal artist and teacher who cares so much about his students that he's willing to beat them and not get any fame for it. Admit it, you were in tears when you thought Roshi killed Goku. An all-round underrated fight, so awesome, yet so unloved.
The first really epic fight of the series and in my opinion it's still the most entertaining. The fight had so many twists and amazing moments. No other fight in any of the series commanded my attention like this one did. (the ending annoyed me though)
This is the first great fight in the franchise, and it's a shame that it's so underrated. It's also the only fight where I actually wanted Goku to lose so that he could learn Master Roshi's lesson.

31Piccolo vs. Frieza

32Zarbon vs. Vegeta
This was the absolute most brutal fight in the entire series. It is the one instance where the antagonist doesn't even allow the protagonist a chance to fight back. Zarbon annihilates Vegeta senseless and leaves his battered body after a multiple headbutt combo, simultaneous roundhouses, a deadly piledriver, a rapid succession of knees to the gut and numerous cyclone kicks. This was the worst beating laid down onto a character and Vegeta was a ragdoll the entire time. Zarbon is the deadliest and best warrior in Frieza's military.
The most brutal and nonstop action in one single episode. Zarbon transforms into a monster and pounds the daylights out of Vegeta with multiple roundhouses, pinwheel kicks, a relentless headbutt combo and a savage piledriver. Vegeta doesn't even have a chance to fight back as Zarbon annihilates him to the brink of death. By far the most brutal and savage fight in the series; much more devastating and powerful than an entire saga of fighting. Zarbon dominates this battle most of all; it's the only time we see a villain completely butcher a hero without allowing the hero/protagonist to have a chance. Best fight, hands down.

33Trunks, Vegeta, Piccolo, Tien vs 17 and 18
Vegeta was so cocky in the beginning of the fight, but 18 taught him a lesson that there are limits to your powers. The z fighters showed up but were dealt with by 17 and 18 when they tried to join in after 18 kicked and broke Vegeta's arm. As Vegeta tried to get back up to throw a Kai blast, 18 blocked it and punched him in the face to the ground. He tried to get back up again only to get kicked in the jaw by 18. She then jumped in the air and landed on his back, kicked him in the stomach, and finally ended the fight by breaking his other arm by stepping on it.
This fight only started out as vegeta chasing the androids, then he caught up and 18 was determined to kill vegeta, then they fought for a while and that's when piccolo, tien, trunks, and krillen showed up, vegeta struggled with 18 and that's when trunks came in with his sword which 18 broke, 17 chimed in and pwned trunks, piccolo and tien came and tried to take out 17, piccolo was washed away and tien was put in a headlock from 17, vegeta swooped up, desperate to save tien but 18 grabbed his foot, trunks got up and 18 threw vegeta into trunks and trunks was out, piccolo returned and 17 dropped tien, tien was out too, piccolo tried to punch 17, but 17 dodged it followed by a punch to the gut, piccolo was out and with that 17 left the ring and joined 16, 18 broke both of vegetas arms, 18 left too, krillen, standing on a cliff, is terriyed and 18 kissed krillen and then all 3 androids left leaving krillen totally confused

34Trunks vs. Frieza
This is what made me like trunk so much because it took him like five minutes to kill frieza and it took goku like ten episodes

35SSJ4 Gogeta vs Omega shenron

This fight was super epic! Gogeta's big bang kamahama was pure chaos! Omega shenron never had a chance


36Yamcha vs. Tien
Classic old-school battle, barely any fireworks, just straight up hand-to-hand combat for the most part.
Very balanced fight.

Cool moves and skills.

Maybe the best fight between humans chacarters.

So great!

37GT Goten vs Baby (In Civilians Body)

38Goku vs. Turles
Goku has battled his own nasty cousin named turles, I will modernize turles into BANSHOH, goku and banshoh fight in their high school years! Except in the film where the high school is grassland and mountains, and when turles first and only appeared!
There brothers fighting each other to the death which was awesome the movie was so awesome
This battle was epic and yet somewhat confusing, but I still vote!

39Vegeta vs. Gohan

40Goten vs. Trunks

41Android 18 vs Goten and Trunks

42Gotanks vs Super Buu

43SS4 Goku vs Nova Shenron

44Olibu vs Pikkon
Probably the best directed battle of the whole series. It builds up with slow, but powerful moves, then builds its tempo with trading strikes. Then, with everyone being totally blown away, the fevered pitch is decided. Pikkon wins, and Olibu becomes his friend. Great Directing!

45Goku vs. Bills

46Vegeta vs First Form Frieza

47Goku vs Frieza

48Goku vs. Cooler

49Goku vs Captain Ginyu
This was THE fight of the Ginyu Saga, and for the first part, it was great as it was just Goku vs Ginyu in hand to hand combat, no ki blasts. Then Ginyu releases Goku to keep the fight fair much like Goku does. Overall, a great fight in Dragon Ball Z.
Ginyu totally got Goku it was so good that the writer had to include the frog just to save Goku from total humiliation. Epic fight and really funny.

50Krillin, 18, Goten, Trunks and Hercule vs Bio-Broly
I JUST REMEMBER WATCHING THAT I ALWAYS THOUGHT BROLY WAS EPIC BUT BIO-BROLY JUST WOW

67Yamcha vs Hero (Kami)
This was one of the most surprising fights in the history of Dragonball it deserves to be mentioned. Funny and cool and not expected at all. Yamcha loses to a nerd!

68Mr. Popo vs Goku
The ONLY time Goku got his ass handed to him! It was so funny I could watch it 1000 times. Goku never ever laid a finger on Popo and that was for 3 years being totally dominated. If it was not for Popo Goku would not be who he was.

69The Z Freedom vs Grunge Werewolves

70Trunks vs. Cell

Future trunks attacks head on and his transformation to ultra super saiyan is epic! How can you not love future trunks?


71Vegeta vs Cell
