Top 10 Characters That Should Be the Face of Dragon Ball Instead of Goku


The Top Ten

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

Goku is a bland character. Can't relate to him at all. Vegeta, on the other hand, went through hell being raised by psychos and surrounded by destruction since childhood. He only wanted a wish to be immortal to defeat Frieza. So what if he's trying to save his own ass? That's how he was raised; kill or be killed. But he learned from all his failures and even though his pride got crush over and over, he kept going. He's still determined to be the very best. He never gives up (no matter how much Toriyama wants to shut on him). And of course, Vegeta is the better father and husband after he finally admitted to himself that he has a heart. Goku meanwhile runs off at the first opportunity. I doubt he remembers that he's married, e sp. a fter Toriyama confirmed in an interview that Goku sees his family more as companions, people he share a house with while Vegeta is the family man and we all know how Toriyama loves Goku and hates Vegeta. He wouldn't have said that for kicks. He didn't ...more

Even if Vegeta is not the face of DBZ, he's got the bigger fanbase and the most fangirls. Vegeta is good.

I'd watch more of if Vegeta is the main. He's so badass.

He is the face of DBZ. No other character is more talked about like Vegeta.

2 Gohan 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 more.

He's been a badass since childhood

The only one good enough to be The Great Goku's successor. I wouldn't mind if Gohan were the face of DBZ, he deserves it. Goku did pass the torch to him in Cell saga.

Nobody wanted this. That's why Toriyama had to bring Goku back.


3 Piccolo Piccolo Piccolo is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. He first appeared in chapter 161 of the Dragon Ball manga in the Shonen Jump magazine on February 22, 1988. He is a member of the alien Namekian race and has abilities such as ki manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, more.

He deserves this

4 Future Trunks Future Trunks

I honestly think Future Trunks makes a great argument for a protagonist for his own show. He's a likeable character (Unlike when portrayed in Xenoverse part of the way through) who has had his own hardships and growths. Vegeta would be interesting but I find his recklessness unfitting for THE main character as the face. I love Vegeta and all but he'd always be a co-star to me. His son is much more fitting in my eyes.

Better choice if it's not Vegeta.

#BtterThanGoku in every form

5 Krillin 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. more.

Whoever made this list is a big idiot who deserves serious consequences. In other animes as this discussions are made like who else will be given a chance. If Goku won't help who else will help and Vegeta is a loafer

Goku is the best. Whoever created this list truly deserves a tight slap to the face.

Honestly Krillin would've made a better main character than Goku who is just incredibly retarded and a pain to watch on screen.

A joke

6 Broly
7 Goten Goten

Goten is a cutie pie but he shouldn't be the main character. Maybe the deuteragonist, tritagonist or something...

A descendant of Goku would do it. Not an overconfident dumbass who keeps messing up everyone's day.

He looks like Goku!

He's destined to take orders, not give them.
