Top Ten Dragon Ball Characters with the Most Wasted Potential
The Top Ten
In my opinion Tien is the most skilled character but Akira Toriyama and toyotaro wasted his potential and I feel like he should have done so much more.
Kiko F yourself- Tien's Last words
I loved when he suddenly showed up against Semi-Perfect Cell. He put up a decent challenge for his supremely inferior power level. Props
I agree; even though his role was minimal, whenever he appeared, he stole the spotlight as a protagonist in my opinion. - PrinceZarbon
He hardly does anything after plain old Dragon Ball
Wasted in Tournament of Power, with his only real match ending in a tie.
He doesn't even have potential in the first place so how can he waste it?
No, why does everyone keep saying that, how are you all blinded to the fact that Vegeta knew if he got more strenght he would be to slow to face cell, trunks didn't know, vegeta could become more stronger but then lose speed just like trunks did, cell even said it himself that 'even vegeta figured it out' about the lack of speed with such a body, please stop saying trunks surpassed vegeta cause it never happened
Trunks even said, of course father figured it out, how could I be so stupid, and cell said 'even vegeta figured it out' trunks was never stronger, vegeta could have got as strong as trunks did but he knew that he would lack speed
He is not a wasted potential he is a good fighter he even surpassed his dad vegeta in the cell season
More potential then Trunks so more wasted.
The better out of the duo. He should be higher than Trunks
Once a loser, always a loser.
It was sad, he had great potential... To be the world's greatest comedian! He'd just say "don't worry guys, Yamcha is here! " And the whole crowd would be laughing
Don't worry, I'll save you! Dies in one punch
I really feel sorry for him. He got blindsided by a Saibaman, and lost his girlfriend to a jackass Saiyan. He deserves SOME pity, don't you think? Stop making fun of Yamcha!
Would you rather watch the most annoying anime ever or your super sayain form is weaker than Yamcha? Lol. Sorry. This is a mean comment
Her potential is definitely wasted. In dragon ball z she is barely shown. In dbgt she's one of the strongest characters, yet she is still weak. She's annoying and unappealing to audiences. All you want to do is tell her to stop yelling. Her and Samuel Jackson must get along well haha. She more of a bothersome not then a real help. And the whole not being able to go ssj is a big down side.
So much wasted potential.
What potential? She's the weakest link.
Gohan is not first in a list like this list.
He should've stayed the hero. He should've killed Buu, dammit!
But she does have potential...to be my B***h
Just... no. There WAS no potential in her. I knew the moment she was introduced she was gonna be dead weight. More so than everyone's rude opinion of Yamcha. Videl is so much more useless than Yamcha.
How can videl be wasting potential? She's a normal human, you know kinda like krillin... except she hasn't had any real form of z fighter training... where is the potential to start this magical character on?
She was actually the strongest non ki user. even stronger than hercule. she's not much by dbz standards but for a regular human she's incredble.
Like if your going to create someone like uub you need to use him
Doesn't even do much at all
The best thing he did in dbz was to attack Nappa.
I know.. He failed and commit suicide.
And yes, I don't like chiaotzu.
He should be #1! He's Goku's brother and he was just thrown away 3 episodes in!
Raditz could have been such a great villain/hero if Toriyama had done anything with him.
Broly was totally wasted in the Triple Threat Trilogy. And he's so popular he's coming back for Super. Good thinking Akira Toriyama.
Broly should be in like every saga. Shame on Akira Toriyama.
Broly shouldve had his own Saga
I think King Cold should've had a True Form like Frieza. If he managed to show it, he would have at least put up an interesting fight against Future Trunks
Please do explain why king cold didn't fight Goku?
King cold shouldve avenged Friezas death not cooler
He could been useful knowing that sayians can grow up to be so powerful
One of the most intimidating character designs in all of Dragon Ball. Wasted to set up Majin Buu arch when he could have set up an entirely different villain arch on his own
