Top 10 Most Overrated Dragon Ball Z Characters

The Top Ten
1 Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. His real name was suppose to be Kakarrot because that's his Saiyan name, and he is the son of Badrock, and Gina. His brother was Raditz. When they sent Goku (Kakarrot) to Earth his grandfather Gohan took care of him. Later on Goku didn't realize it when he was a kid, but he killed his grandfather Gohan because it was a full moon, and Goku looked at it, so he turned into a giant ape.

Goku is much like a overestimated character instead of overrated character by the fan base, just to give a example Goku was considered most powerful character but then Cell was defeated by Gohan not Goku. But Goku is given more saiyan form just to make him more powerful. Fan base thinks he is some kind of god while he couldn't even touch Beerus initially while giving his everything but then Beerus started giving him training and now fans think he will beat Beerus. Fan Base!

Goku is the most overrated anime character. He's a horrible character. He's always letting villains go and risking Earth's safety for his own selfish reasons. And then abandons his family and talks crap about his wife.

I agree that Goku's power is overrated at times, but he's not overrated as a character. Most of the time someone 'overrates' him, it's their overrating DBZ itself, and Goku, being the main character, is the representation.

So overrated. He's a dead beat dad and his stupid fans pretend he's not. Gohan practically raised himself and his brother.

2 Broly Broly is the main antagonist in the Broly Triple Threat trilogy and Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. He appears to be the latest of the Legendary Super Saiyans who appear every thousand years. His father was Paragus.

Broly has to be number one because people are saying he can't beat Cell, Buu and with enough time Omega shenron and SSj3 Goku!

Cell would destroy brolly and brolly could kill himself if he overflows

3 Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

I realized he wasn't as awesome as everyone portray him to be. He pretty much ruined all non-saiyan male characters and unnecessarily replaced Yamcha (an actual character). He is just a poor man's Goku and he always rants about being the prince of all saiyans and he only thinks about surpassing Goku.

I don't understand why everyone likes Vegeta so much. He gets beat by every single villain/hero in the franchise. His cocky and arrogant attitude is annoying when you know he's clearly outmatched by his opponent, and he cried over being lesser than Frieza!

It's called character development, dumbass. Vegeta gets treated like crap by Toriyama because he knows Vegeta is more popular than his boring main character.

He's not overrated at all. Just because more people prefer Vegeta than Goku doesn't make him overrated, just the better character.

4 Gohan Son Gohan is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Gohan is introduced as the first son of the protagonist Goku, and his wife Chi-Chi, in chapter #196 Kakarrot, first published in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine on October 24, 1988. Chi-Chi is a strict and protective mother to Gohan, forcing him to focus on his studies and forbidding him from practicing martial arts. However, due to the various threats to the Earth, she reluctantly allows him to fight, with him ultimately becoming one of the strongest characters in the series. Gohan has been well received by both fans and critics, the latter usually citing the character's growth from his initial appearance to his defeat of Cell.
5 Frieza Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is the series's most personal and significant antagonist, being responsible for many of the series' events, most notably Goku's transformation into a Super Saiyan.

Frieza is extremely weak in this form. But if you're talking about Golden Frieza, his power was increased by hundredfold.

Far more overrated than Broly. Come on, this guy came back to life so many ties that it's so annoying!

6 Cell Cell is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the main antagonist of the Android Saga, being an android/artificial life form from the future, whose goal is to become "perfect" via absorbing Androids 17 and 18 and becoming the strongest fighter in the universe.

Sorry to say but this guy is really overrated.

Trunks isn't ugly I bet he looks better than all of you haters!

The Contenders
11 Goten Goten is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

15 Krillin Krillin (クリリン, Kuririn) is a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga, and the anime series Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super. Krillin had a brief rivalry with Goku when they first met and trained under Master Roshi, but they quickly became lifelong best friends.[8] One of the most powerful and talented Human martial artists on Earth, Krillin is courageous, a faithful ally and good-natured. He is a prominent Z Fighter, despite usually being overpowered by the major enemies. His short stature and baldness (with the exception of when he grows out his hair in the Majin Buu Saga onwards) aid him in his ability to provide comic relief during tense moments. During the latter half of Dragon Ball Z, he largely retires from fighting, opting to settle down with his family instead, becoming the husband of Android 18 and the father of Marron.
