Top 10 Dragon Ball Z Heroes

Just like Naruto Male to Naruto Female, I'd like to contribute the OPPOSITE of DBZ Villians: the Heroes.

The Top Ten

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

He is a perfect PRINCE, and a powerful warrior. He doesn't fear death and showed his true strength by sacrificing himself against buu. HE IS THE "BEST"

Vegeta is the greatest character of all. He believes in killing his opponent not showing them mercy like goku always did. If vegeta had been powerful enough to kill frieza he would have done it. Frieza would have never seen the light of day again if he had been if the hands of the saiyan prince and not bleeding heart goku. I like goku's pure heart but he takes it to far you've got to recognize evil and destroy it.

Vegeta is probably the "strongest saiyan". Due to his ability to think, fight, and learn he can out match Goku.

2 Goku Son

What the hell, why is he on the 2nd place. He has the most purest heart of any hero in anime or movie. He is number 1 under the sun


Goku is the strongest sayain, in history. NO one can challenge him, including omega shenron. The main reason I love him for is his kindness with friends and
The thousand forms he has got.

Goku's heart is pure he belives in working hard and is strongest hero and unlike vegeta actullay is relavent

3 Piccolo (Majunior) Piccolo (Majunior) 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.

Piccolo is so intelligent and disciplined it is hard to go past him as one of the greatest heros, of it wasn't for him and the way he trains gohan would not nearly be as strong and well developed as he is.

Piccolo was once a Evil Demon King however he reformed and became a total hero and became best friends with Gohan the son of his rival.

Strong with he signature move Special Beam Cannon - colinliu

The most badass slug man I've ever seen. I love his attacks like the Makankosappo and the Hellzone grenade! And he's super smart because he has Kami's intellect. He was and will always be my favorite character

4 Gohan Son

If it weren't for fans who begged for another Saga (which was the right choice, Kid Buu was epic), Cell Saga could've ended with Gohan as the next hero. If it weren't for even more begging, (which was the wrong choice, GT was HORRIBLE. Only thing good were the villian concept, and SSJ4)Gohan was supposed to be the strongest. Akira claimed so himself. - animedude7

Gohan is the strongest DBZ Warrior. His Mystic Form could beat SSJ3 Goku. He was the one to beat Cell, kick Raditz in the face with no previous training, defeat Vegeta at the Saiyan Saga, transforming into SSJ2 after 7 years of no training, and many other achievements and feats. Overall, he is not just the strongest, but the coolest character. He was the first SSJ2, too.

Did anyone notice how Gohan was the one to destroy Cell and not even Goku could, which even Goku knew so himself. Gohan was to be the strongest and he is stronger than Vegeta until GT and if you disagree then how come he beat Bojack and his crew while the others couldn't hurt them? If it wasn't for him becoming a damn scholar instead of a fighter like his father then he would have been the absolute greatest hero, but sadly as much as I like Gohan at least he is in the top three where he belongs at least!

Given that his father is the greatest anime character in the anime world, Gohan is following his footsteps. He's already the most badass kid in fiction.

5 Bulma Bulma Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.

Bulma is like the human equivalent of the dragonballs: she's always needed and she always delivers when called upon. She needs to be higher up because she's so important. Without Bulma, the show ends because there would be no radar, no time travel, no Trunks, and everybody else would be dead by the hands of the Androids.

Genius tech. The plot can't move forward without her.

Should be in top 3.

The coolest, sassiest, smartest and sexiest DBZ female.

6 Future Trunks Future Trunks

He and Mirai Bulma are the best. Thanks to them, the present timeline exist.

As he is the son of the most powerful character that is vegeta and vegeta has given power to trunks in the age of 15,and goku is now the strongest character because vegeta s father has given power to goku in his childhood.

Gohan is the best he should be the strongest fighter in dbz and dbgt he should not waste his time in studying he shoul be a fighter - beater

7 Krillin (Kuririn) Krillin (Kuririn) 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.

Krillin is the most charismatic character in the whole series! With Vegeta and Piccolo, the best developed characters.

Krillin is 100% awesome, I don't know what the show would have been without him, super saiyans wouldn't exist, Goku wouldn't have had his first rival, less humour, less fun, less interesting characters, he helps everyone develop, and I'm sure most characters would've died without him

this guy might be a total wus in the manga/anime but in the games this guy bad ass. - arcanine

8 Trunks (Future) Trunks (Future) Trunks (トランクス, Torankusu) is the first Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla .

Trunks is my favorite! Buu saga would have been really interesting if he had stayed. :( He's epic and shows no remorse to his foes unlike Goku. Goku causes a lot of trouble by letting villains live. Trunks is awesome and knows how to get things done. He's also polite and shows respect for others, whereas Chibi is rude and arrogant. Don't get me wrong, I love Chibi, but it would've been cooler if he'd grown up to be like Future Trunks.

He is is totally badass with a sword. And he is hot

Kiler of Friza when he came back and Killer of The androids at his time so cell couldn't absorbed them - colinliu

The bravest and smartest saiyan.

9 Tien Tien

an extremely underrated character, and probably the strongest human. he was able to keep cell down, even though he knew he didn't stand a chance.

He a goon and Idon lose with him on the game with more trainning he would give a lot of challengers problems

Tien is the strongest human

10 Trunks Trunks Trunks (トランクス, Torankusu) is the first Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla .

He should be in the top 10. His birth changed history.

He being born saved the world.

No Trunks, no future. He's a hero.

Goten’s better - Wut

The Contenders

11 Vegito Vegito

He is the best. He can defeat anybody. Even super buu was helpless before him. The fusion of the best 2 is always better than them

Vegito was stronge

12 Bardock Bardock

If standing up for a whole planet dosnt make you the best I don't know what will. When all odds stacked against you going to save it. I would say he had to be one of the best heros even if Goku had done more to save planets, Bardock had the most stacked against him. Making him a true hero!

He is defeated easily by frieza, but not after killing and breaking through hundreds of friezas men, while injured, to get to frieza. He could even see the future and most likely would have been the first super saiyan if he wasn't killed

His like Goku

He is better than Goku being his father

13 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.

He is one of the only people to beat Goku at least once. Don't belive me check the first few epesodes of dragon ball.

It's only because Goku was starving. He later stomped Yamcha after he was full. - Goku02

Yea he beat Goku in one of the first dragon ball eposodes

Strong, human ladys men and sprit ball is 10 Times better than and energ ball - colinliu

14 Android 18 Android 18

She is the strongest female character in DBZ and she is quite cool

15 Android 16 Android 16

He fought against all odds to protect his friend and even died inspiring gohan to release his anger

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

He is the badass of the group

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

Whis was like a woman why you are like him

18 Chiaotzu Chiaotzu
19 Master Roshi Master Roshi

In the original Dragon Ball, Master Roshi plays a major role. He's the one who trained many of the characters that appear in Dragon Ball Z, such as Goku (obviously), Krillin, and even giving some lessons to Tien and Chaitzou. He even helped Goku train before the two met because he has mastered Grandpa Gohan who taught Goku the basics. He's one of the few people who ever managed to beat Goku in a fight, engineered the Kamehameha technique, and we even powerful enough to destroy the Moon. Sure he's a perverted old man, but he's full of wisdom and cunningness shown by none of the other characters. And when King Piccolo was released from his imprisonment, a demon that he had seen kill all of his friends and even his master, he was there at the front lines to defend the Earth and he died trying. He's not nearly the most powerful, but he's surely the most spirited and one who's impact allowed DBZ to happen in the first place.

Waste of space.

20 Kid Goku Kid Goku Kid Goku is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
21 Broly 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.

24 Nail
25 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.

He is was the god of destruction

He is so mady kundi

26 Tapion Tapion
27 Kefla
28 Uub Uub

Goku would rather train him than his own sons.

They should have given him more of a role in battles, I'm mean he's the combine power of kid buu fused with a majin buy in gt.

Uub a butu (presque) le bebe mutant

In my opinion the most underrate character in the whole of DBGT (that's if you count DBGT)

29 Majin Buu Majin Buu Majin Boo (Spelled "Majin Buu" in the English Dub) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the fourth and final main antagonist of Dragon Ball Z, a being of pure evil created by the wizard Bibbidi to wreak havok upon the universe series before the series's beginning. more.
30 Goten Goten

Useless unless little Trunks give him orders.

Goten is so awesome. like him because he so funny and the youngest super saiyan and is stronger than goku and gohan at his age

Cause he is so young and can already if he trained as much as goku did he'd be ss4 also he's the youngest super saiyan ever go goten wo also please vote for the best ever

He’s so cute! - Goku02
