Best DragonBall Z Transformations

The Top Ten

1 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.

By far the best transformation as it was the fastest in concept and onscreen. Most other transformations really dragged on and weren't that effective as appearance anyway. The Super Saiyan stuff was just a hair color alteration. Zarbon actually pumped up and became beastly in milliseconds and was also the most vicious when he transformed, substantially altering his characteristic and mannerism as well as his physical appearance.

Most beastly and demonic transformation. Also the fastest and most surprising.

He goes from a handsome guy to a monster in an instant, that was amazing and awesome all at the same time.

Zarbon 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.

2 Super Saiyan 2

Although this is second on the list, it is significantly underrated. As dragon ball super is finished, looking back on it, ssj2 was no where to be seen, and when it is its constantly outshined by the god transformations, and is sometimes comoletely skipped out of episodes whilst powerning up. Same applies to z and gt. Its something about this transformation that gets me excited for dragon ball fights.

Super Saiyan 2 was the best and play such an important role in DBZ, like Gohan killing cell for example.

One of the best looking transformations, very significant role in the entire buu saga (especialy by Vegeta)

3 Super Saiyan 3

What an awesome transformation when this transformation began an entire planet is shaking ready to be destroyed, just awesome!

This is the BEST transformation ever. This transformation shook the whole world and I mean the WHOLE world.

Total badass


4 Frieza Final Form

Nice looking transformation, this transformation can fool anyone but it's the most deadly transformation of Frieza

I just loved when Frieza trasnformed in his 4th form. I really didn't expect that look after his transformation. He was even getting a bit scarier when he became small.

5 Majin Powers

For some reason I love this powers evil power increased and the diabologikal M on there forehead is amazing

6 Super Saiyan

Watch the super saiyan transformation Dub with Bruce falconer music. It is the best and most suspenseful scene in dragon ball history

The normal ss is very powerful and the first ss form in all anime manga its just perfect

7 Legendary Super Saiyan

Muscle buff, huge a form that even the great Vegeta was afraid of it deserves this place

Vegeta freaked out against cell and Frieza too - shiraishimasaki

8 Super Saiyan God

Goku is able to have sex with bulma even more!

9 Oozaru
10 Frieza 2nd Form

Frieza goes from small to enormous and frightening, the most musclebound and ferocious by appearance. Longer horns, elongated tail, most reminiscent of a brutish monster in this stage.

The Contenders

11 Garlic Jr (100% power form) Garlic Jr. is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
12 Bojack
13 Super Saiyan 4

The only unique transformation in the entire series.

By far the most original and badass transformation

Awesome transformation with a lot of power

14 Frieza 3rd Form

Frieza has an elongated cranial structure and protruding appendages similar in design to that of the Xenomorph. He is the most extraterrestrial in appearance when in this form.

15 Cooler (Final Form) Cooler is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vicious and fierce, Cooler adapts a persona and appearance very similar to that of The Shredder & The Predator Yautja. The massive spiked mask and faceplate design are a perfect way to complete his deadly design and the additional shark-like fins give him the sleek embodiment of an elite extraterrestrial combatant.

16 Kogu
17 Vegito Vegito is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vegito is a fusion, not REALLY a transformation

18 Ganos
19 Metal Cooler

The new and reborn Cooler same looking as the first form he fought Goku, but metal shiny and powerful

20 Ultra Instinct
21 Janembas Ultimate Transformation

Nowere near in the first form of Janemba tough strong and ready to squash anyone like a bug

22 Super Perfect Cell

At this form Cell is looking like a ss2 with his new elecktriciti around him very powerful and most of all gained by near death just like a saiyan

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

U must know that this transformation defeated Janemba and omega Shenron. He looks better than vegito

24 First Form Baby Vegeta

It looks just like Vegeta ss2 but in silver hair and much more cocky and proud love it!

25 Super Vegeta

Good speech, Best character, unexpected, FINAL FLASH!

26 Goku Super Saiyan Blue
27 Super Saiyan Rose
28 Golden Frieza

Stood up to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan in Resurrection F.

29 Wolf Fang Fist

Not a transformation

30 Jiren's Hidden Power

Arguably the most character developing transformation in the franchise, along with super saiyan 2 gohan

31 Goku Black Super Saiyan Rose

Confirmed the most powerful non god of destruction fighter right now, Goku Black's Super Saiyan Rose allowed Goku Black to defeat Goku, Trunks, and Vegeta twice. He is also probably the only guy to make Pink look so cool!

32 Max Power

None of this "AARR-" for 3 episodes. It's quick, it's swift and if more characters attempted to use it they'd become way more stronger. Let's say human characters had this ability they'd be 5, maybe 10x stronger.

34 Super Saiyan Blue Evolved
35 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken
36 Super Saiyan Rage
