Best Dragon Ball Z Characters


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Kid Trunks Kid Trunks

This is utter bull. Trunks and Goten are equally strong and equally useful / useless, with their helping rescue Vegeta and producing Gotenks, and biasing fans call Kid Trunks powerful and useful and Goten weak and useless. That's low.

Goten needs to stop sticking around Trunks. He always has to lower himself to his ugly friend's level out of pity.

He's so cute. Should be in the top 10.

Now why is he top 50 I hate him

22 Bills

He destroyed Goku super Sayian 3 like he was nothing. Wow he is strong - PeekieJ

He's a god of destruction!

Common this god can rip anyone apart and he can easily just destroy the universe means no Goku no vegeta he should be number 1

This list is not for the strongest character. This list is for the best character. On another hand, Bills means nothing for Z sagas. - luki

Beerus should easily be in top 15 by now...

23 Cooler

Frieza was the ultimate tyrant with limitless minions (like vegeta) of their own calibur, and yet cooler topped Frieza in everything Frieza was not

Cooler is the best character out there and he has the power to pound almost all the dragon ball z characters as with a power level of "470,000,000" he's clearly one of the strongest in the series.

He is so cool he he

Cooler is COOLER THEN FRIZEA HAHA. I'm becomeing chugaconroy

24 Shenron Shenron

The reason the show began. Goku would still be living in the jungle if Shenron didn't exist because Bulma brought him along to look for the Dragon Balls so she could get a wish from him.

Without him goku piccolo krillin etc. would not even be alive! Most people don't see him as a main character but think how many episodes/movies has shenron been in? Enough said.

I think the earth would be doomed without him. Plus, dragons rule anyway. He is without a doubt the most important character in the show.

The strongest character of all anime come on he can bring you back to life!

26 Whis Whis

The author of the series himself stated that if you where to rank the characters Goku, Bills, and Whis. Super saiyan god Goku would be a 6, bills would be a 10, AND WHIS WOULD BE A 15.

So what? A character has to be strong in order for you to like him / her? - Goku02

He's stronger than Bills!

Powerful yet coolest character of DBZ. He was introduced later maybe that's the reason he is in number 26.

He/she is from db super, not dbz

27 Android #17

Android 17 is the best character because he effortlessly took out almost EVERYBODY and he wasn't even using half his strength. Then the fact that he seems to have more depth and personality to him than the other characters. Not to mention the way he maneuvered that van, LOL Seriously, NOBODY can do that but him

Android 17 is the best. He kicks ass he has enough arrogance to rival some Saiyans, he is hot, and he just is so independent and he actually has feelings and doesn't like slaughtering innocent people. He is the best.

In my opinion he's cooler than 18 but due to the lack of screen time and him being a male, he isn't as popular but is a awesome character who is under appreciated and missed used.

He's awesome - ParkerFang

28 Super Buu Super Buu

Yeah I don't know why people think kid buu is stronger like what?

I love Super Buu, he was probably the coolest Buu in my opinion, he had some awesome fights, I honestly think Kid Buu is quite overrated, I like all the Buu's though but seeing Super Buu absorb people and get evern stronger was awesome! - taytayxtaytay

Way! Stronger than kid buu

Better than kid buu

29 Beerus Beerus Beerus is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama. Beerus made his first appearance in the 2013 feature film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

Beerus is the most badass person in all of Dragon Ball

Beerus is god of destruction and cool

I think people are giving vote to there favourite
Characters because beerus is stronger than goku
and vegeta

30 Raditz Raditz

I have commented on Raditz before, but it's just because I love him so much! He's drop dead sexy and I love him to death! And he's not weak because when fighting Goku and Piccolo, he did have the upper hand for most of the fight. He even blew Piccolo's arm off. I don't care what anyone says, Raditz rules and I really don't think that anyone is a bigger Raditz fan than ME! I LOVE you Raditz!

He looks badass and is badass He has a good history and shows it when he fights in my opinion he's the coolest and my personal favorite

Raditz is my favorite character along with Vegeta and Cell. Completely awesome, the perfect Saiyan warrior

I could write a dissertation on why Raditz is awesome. but suffice it to say, he rocks - taishisohma

31 King Kai

He is a cute little guy who trained Goku in his preparation for the fight against vegeta. If he had not trained Goku vegeta and nappa would have destroyed hm and all other Z fighters. Then whole of earth would be under vegeta and nappa's dominance

It's funny to watch him when he gets mad at Goku the other day I saw his car

One of the funniest Dragon Ball Z characters of all time! - taytayxtaytay

32 Future Gohan Future Gohan

THE INCREDIBLE GOHAN! I loved this guy! They have to make another movie or something with him in it. He was awesome and if I bet he was in more things, lots of people would like him. I mean he helped Trunks out a lot and he trained him and his death caused Trunks to turn SUPER! I really want more of him and soon, somehow and someway even though he is dead. But now that I realize it, that it wouldn't be popular and if there was a return of Gohan it still wouldn't be good so I really don't know. I guess I will just have enjoy the parts he was in the special.

Future Gohan reminded me a lot of Son Goku. They both tried really hard and were overall nice guys and would anything to protect Earth. Future Gohan really did his best to be like his father. I remember when Gohan gave the last Senzu Bean to Trunks and before he gave it to Trunks he said "Now Gohan, what would your father do." Goku would have been really proud to see this part of Gohan because he was NOT AT ALL like the Gohan from the present timeline. I just can't believe he is this far behind from lots of other characters

He is the best character in the specials. Gohan was just a very nice and outgoing guy and he worked his ass off to attempt to beat the Androids and I felt like if he survived the last battle he would have gotten really strong because of that saiyan boost after a battle and I really wanted to see more of him.

He never gave up. He fought hard. He tried at his best. He trained Trunks. He was just overall a great character. Future Gohan was just a great fighter even though he wasn't that strong. He always thought he had a chance even with that one arm at the end. I just love this guy. Nobody was like this character.

33 Dodoria Dodoria Dodoria is one of Frieza's top two right hand men and in an army of millions. He is always beside his master and emperor, Frieza, following his orders and carrying out his dirty work alongside his comrade, Zarbon. Dodoria is responsible for advising Frieza on numerous matters and remains loyal to Frieza more.
34 Teen Gohan
35 Supreme Kai Supreme Kai

Supreme was just underestimating the 3 saiyans full power apart from that he's actually a good character and it shows how much the Z Fighters have achieved.

The Supreme Kai is super cool and super strong! He's 1000x stonger than Frieza for god sakes!

36 Zarbon Zarbon Zarbon is Frieza's right hand man and highest ranking Commander and General in an army of millions. He is always beside his master and emperor, Lord Frieza, following his orders and carrying out his dirty work alongside his comrade, Dodoria. Zarbon is responsible for advising Frieza on numerous matters, more.

Zarbon has an excellent persona and villainous attitude. He's also got a great design and he's a morally complex character overall when it comes to both his elegant form and his monstrous deadly form. Aside from the fact that he serves Frieza with utmost loyalty, he's also one of the most brutal tacticians and military commanders in the entire universe.

Zarbon is one of the absolute best villains in the series. He is responsible for telling Frieza to eliminate the Saiyan race, goes about pounding Vegeta's daylights in the most brutal fight scene in the entire series, and has likely the most exciting death scene in the entire series as well. He also is a lover of beauty and holds a dormant power, the ability to transform into a reptilian beast. He is the deadly dynamic of the combination of the beauty and the beast and the most mysterious yet demonic, ruthless, and brutal villain in the series. The only other comparable villain in terms of story, mannerism, and actual evil acts is Frieza himself.

Zarbon is the best villain in the entire series because he had the most brutal fight, where he didn't even allow his opponent a chance to attack. Anyone who enjoys rooting for the villain has a field day with Zarbon's deadly fighting tactics. He's also the most militant and disciplined of Frieza's elite Commanders and the deadliest and most powerful in his army of millions.

Zarbon is an amazingly disciplined and loyal follower of Frieza. He's got a great rivalry with Vegeta and is a very skilled fighter.

37 Yamcha Yamcha Yamcha (ヤムチャ, Yamucha) is a Bandit and a main protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga and in the anime Dragon Ball, and later a supporting protagonist in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, with a few appearances in Dragon Ball GT. He has black hair and has a scar across his eye and cheek.

Well, all I can say about yamcha is that he's my favourite character in the dragon ball series and unfortunately he's heavily underrated, I mean... in Dragon ball he proved to be a very skilled character, he was a disciple of master roshi along with goku and krillin, and he learned some powerful moves like the kamehameha, wolf fang fist spirit ball etc, in the 22th martial arts tournament he showed his power by putting up a good fight against tienshinhan WHO ALSO BEAT GOKU and became the winner of this tournament, but in dragon ball z yamcha was made a clown, I think he deserved more respect and he deserved to be stronger in the series, he's also a character with a lot of style, but unfortunately he's always being beaten in dragon ball z, I can't stand the way he's beaten by dr gero so easily he deserved to had put up a better fight against that dr gero I mean... Yamcha is stronger than that!

Toriyami, why you no keep Yamcha in dbz? I always thought Yamcha was funny, but he never gave up and always tried to help. I don't think it was fair to make him into a side character just to show how strong everyone else was. He just became a a piece of meat for everyone else to hide behind (Android saga? ) And he's hot! Not to mention he got screwed over by Bulma... Nasty Vegeta and his giant widows peak... But I love him so much and he deserves some happiness like everyone else in the series, probably more so than other characters (so does Tien too). Anyway if nothing else he is my favorite. (and he's spoo hot! ) - A Yamcha fangirl and proud of it

Is it too much to ask to at least put Yamcha in Dragon Ball Super more often and have an awesome moment if not more? After all, nobody has to be a saiyan to be awesome. I find it unfair that Goku and Vegeta are too overpowered in Super to the point that they have to fool around in order to bring some "conflict". I wish everyone who is not Goku or Vegeta could do more especially Yamcha. I don't see why some people treat him like a weakling when he is among the most powerful humans. It's not Yamcha's fault that during the Saiyan Arc and beyond, he become "useless" it just that the saiyans are hogging everything. Say what you want of me but NOT having transformations or the "Saiyan gets stronger after near death experience" and still be able to win is more impressive than being overpowered.

He has some potential,but now he is just a joke character...I wish he was badass again just like on his first appearance,when he could beat Goku.

38 Tapion Tapion

He's just great! He is a damn cool dude if you ask me, also he is part of the best DBZ movie!

Tapion should be higher, I thought in Wrath of The Dragon that he was a complete beast, he's just so awesome he's easily in my top 10.

He's so cool and underrated, he gave trunks his sword plus his ocarina just sounds beautiful.

He was my favorite in the movie - ParkerFang
