Top 10 Dragon Ball Z Villains


The Top Ten

1 Frieza Frieza Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is more.

Frieza, out of all the villains and characters in dbz had the most compelling backstory, which would either make u angry at the the character for his ruthlessness, awe at his power at the time, or just downright feel for the guy at the crumble of his empire... He was defeated by Goku who barely even has a backstory compared to other characters( I'm a saiyan, raised on Earth)... In the original dbz, Frieza's voice actors weren't great and it actually took away from his character, but in dbz Kai his new voice actor gives him the personality to back his power... His power wasn't the only thing that made Frieza special, but also his appearance and transformartions are unlike any other and looks as if careful thought was put into his designs. He goes from small and delicate to brutal brute, to ferocious monster to deadly pure white delicate humanoid nightmare... Frieza is such a great character, but over the years after his death in dbz history, his name is constantly mocked and the ...more

He committed a freaking genocide against Namek! A GENOCIDE! On a KIDS show - dgenerationdino

Dbz isn't a kid show it was an English dubbed adults show that just happened to air on Cartoon Network

Frieza rocks. He is the only one who could fo destroyed Goku if it wasn't for the fact that he loved toying with him. Also he's the only villian who can breath without atmosphere, stand the lack of pressure in space and he can survive the most horrifing injuries.

His saga is also the longest and he can destroy planets in the blink of an eye. The fact that he is vile and evil makes him Gokus arch nemasis and also one of the coolest villians on T. V

He's really sexy :)))

2 Cell Cell Cell is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the main antagonist of the Android Saga, being an android/artificial life form from the future, whose goal is to become "perfect" via absorbing Androids 17 and 18 and becoming the strongest fighter in the universe.

Cell was everything a dbz villain should be. he was intellectually on par with the likes of gohan and piccolo, had the power and drive of goku, and the ruthlessness of frieza, the previous big bad of the series. cell's design is one of the most interesting designs in all of anime, his color palette along with his armor like skin spoke volumes in terms of originality, and his creation was basically a summary of all of the z warriors adventures. in a way, cell was a proper final villain of the show (even though he was not) and combined the best of all of dbz's villains and heroes cultivated into one final super being that the z warriors defeated together. the cell saga was the last time where the fight against the big bad was a team effort rather than a continuous tug of war with a revolving cast, it was in cell's story that the entirety of dbz made sense as up until that point, everyone whom goku and gohan has redeemed over the years came together to fight and defeat what was ...more

I have mixed feelings about Cell being in second place on this list, but he was the best dbz villain in my opinion. He was sociopathic, killing for amusement much like a cat that plays with a mouse until it dies, then moves on to the the next one.

He enjoyed the pain and suffering of others above all. He was also calculated and methodical. An intelligent opponent that put a lot of pressure on the Z warriors. They had to combined their efforts to defeat him, which really wasn't seen that much in the Buu saga and a little in the Frieza saga.

Frieza was a great ruthless villain, but that's all he was for the most part. He ruled with fear and that comes from weakness in my opinion. Cell was feared without having to try so hard. He was merciless like Frieza, but that wasn't all there was to him. He was more complex.

Cell was unpredictable, you never knew what he was going to do next, compared to Frieza who was fairly predictable in his behavior. As a side note Cell ...more

I think the others have said it all. Cell had incredible power and intelligence, his regeneration was impressive without being just bull like Buu's, he wasn't terrified of death like Frieza (in fact he was willing to die if it would mean the deaths of his enemies), and overall just stands out. Plus, most of the other villains have boring motives; Frieza wants to rule the galaxy and be immortal (yawn), Buu just wants to destroy everything, Brolly never had any established goals, and the pattern repeats itself. Cell sought perfection and to prove that he was perfect, the most powerful being in the universe. He delighted in others suffering and terror, but that wasn't the driving action behind his goals. He was basically a fusion of all the strongest fighters and villains up to that point and probably should have been the final boss (in fact, if I remember correctly he originally was until Toriyama was pressure by his readers to continue the series).

Most badass...

3 Kid Buu Kid Buu

I am highly disappointed in Kid Buu's position on this list. Kid Buu is with out a doubt THE most vicious, brutal, and ruthless villain in the entire series Dragonball, Dragonball Z, AND GT! Kid Buu doesn't talk, he fights, destroys, and kills everything in his path! He doesn't bargain, play games, and spares nothing. Goku questioned his abilities and even talks about giving up, and that was with a WEAKER form of Buu. He is the only villain to succeed in destroying the Earth, and does it after Vegeta makes a statement about it. Buu doesn't care, as mentioned before, he is ruthless! Frieza, Cell, and Broly fighting together couldn't even stop Buu. And even after the Earth, Buu traveled from planet to planet destroying everything including the people in otherworld nearly Killing those who were already dead! Buu could get blown to bits and still revives himself, he was a monster! Cell was programmed to know the moves that he knew from strands of DNA, Buu learned everything he knew, just ...more

It's brutal, Malicious, killer instinct combined with childlike, easy-going, relentless enjoyment of battle. The perfect combination if you ask me. Kid Buu is tireless, insane, extremely powerful and humorous in his antics. Yet he hardly says a word. Finally, A villain who doesn't talk and gloat before embarassing himself. That in itself is good enough.

He's just pure evil. No intentions. Just evil.

Kid Buu should be the first on this list. Goku had to use the whole world before he could defeat kid Buu.

4 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.

Broly is easily the deadliest foe the Z fighters have ever faced. Every other villain is defeated in the end by the efforts of one or two of the Z warriors. Broly took on Vegeta, Goku, Piccolo, Gohan and Trunks all at once, and completely TRASHED them. It took all of their power funneled into a punch thrown by Goku just to injure him. (by the way, Broly spent a good deal of time standing there and LETTING Goku hit him as much as he wanted. Broly didn't even react.) Frieza destroys planets for fun. Broly destroys galaxies for fun. Cell's power is limited by his Zenkai boosts / absorption. Broly's power increases with every passing second. Majin Buu isn't much better: only gets stronger through absorption (or in the case of kid buu, ejection).

No he doesn't.
Broly was laying waste to the Southern Galaxy, not destroying it in a second
Broly doesn't get stronger any second, that's dub error.
Broly is so overrated. - TheDarkOne_221b

Broly is the second to the dangerous enemy of Goku. Broly can destroy 'whole universe' without using his Legendary Super Saiyan because king Kai said 'he almost destroy the south galaxy'. Broly did not yet remove the mind control device while destroying the south galaxy until Broly found Goku. And if Goku did not affect Broly's psychological state of mind he can control himself and improve his saiyan level (Legendary Super Saiyan 1,2,3,4) and might more powerful than Gogeta super saiyan 4

Broly will be the most dangerous enemy of Goku. Broly can destroy 'whole universe' without using his Legendary Super Saiyan because king Kai said 'he almost destroy the south galaxy'. Broly did not yet remove the mind control device while destroying the south galaxy until Broly found Goku. And if Goku did not affect Broly's psychological state of mind he can control himself and improve his saiyan level (Legendary Super Saiyan 1,2,3,4) and might more powerful than Gogeta super saiyan 4

He is the best villian

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

Vegeta should defiantly be number 1 on here not 9? What is wrong with you people? Vegeta was one the the best fighters every think about it, survived a spirit bomb, took two members of the ginyu force out by himself, destroyed android #19, played around with semi-perfect cell, Did a epic move the final flash on perfect cell, nearly blowing up the planet, had his mind taken over and still did what he wanted, did the coolest kamikaze attack I've ever seen! If you want me to continue I'd be glad to, because vegeta is awesome and he shouldn't be this low on a list.

When Vegeta came to Earth for the first time, he was awesome; when battling the b Z fighters he was seemingly immortal. He was hit by the kamehameha, then by the spirit bomb but still he was capable of facing great ape Gohan. That battle was truly awesome! And before leaving Earth badly injuried he told Krillin ( who listened to Goku and didn't finish him off) and told him "when I come back, I'll stare in your eyes as I crash your life". Vegeta on Namek exterminates an entire village, including the elderly and the children. He was defined as "pure evil" and "unspeakable evil". Vegeta even desroyed an entire planet just by using his fingertips!

Vegeta is definitely the best character in DBZ in my opinion.
I get that most people don't consider him to be the best villain because he becomes a hero (while still being ruthless and badass)

The best pure villain in DBZ in my opinion is Frieza, just because Vegeta is more of an hero/antihero than a villain for most of the time.

Vegeta from the saiyan saga is a dangerous adversary.

6 Janemba Janemba

If you haven't seen DBZ Movie 12 named "Fusion Reborn", go see it now. Janemba is epic. His first form is something to laugh at, but his last is badass. In my opinion he's as good as Frieza

Janemba is not overrated by many dbz fans but he is truly powerful at last form. He likes so badass, imagine if he absorbed kid buu his power level would be so high. Goku needed to fuse to beat him, no offense but I think he could defeat broly or Frieza but I think it would be a close match between kid buu.

He had absolutely no trouble in facing goku ssj3 he has perfect manipulation
The demon can alter reality. For example, he changed the Other World station, with King Yemma in it, into a jellybean looking thing along with everything else in Other World, even the tournament grounds. He is apparently able to physically alter and Deconstruct/Reconstruct the mass of objects. He is also very skilled in martial arts overpowering both goku and vegeta

He's SO FUN to use on both Budokai and Tenkaichi games, the way he fights is so smooth yet so deadly, can easily manipulate dimensions and generate weaponry out of thin air, this guy's unstoppable, and he doesn't need to speak a word to be so - Enmanu16

7 Cooler Cooler

Out of all the villains in DBZ, Cooler is, has been, and always will be my all-time favourite. Part of it is because of his transformations (and physical appearance in general) but mainly I like him because of the difference between him and Frieza. Frieza's ok, as a villain (he's the only villain I know that can make 'I'm going to kill you' sound polite) but he was SO self-absorbed and full of himself, that he believed he could simply conquer anyone with no trouble. In that instance, Goku put him in his place. Whereas Cooler, he doesn't underestimate his opponents, and even insists that his men check over and over the area, even after it seems as though the enemies were obliterated.

I really hope to see more of Cooler in Dragon Ball Z, cameos and such, though it would be AWESOME if he were to have his own saga (probably won't happen, but a girl can dream, can't she? )

Wish he could have gotten a whole saga to himself. He was sick! He was Frieza but with another transformation.

Cooler definitely deserved his own saga, I mean, he had a great personality, showed a lot more depth than his brother, and did not underestimate the power of those he was fighting; a trait completley unique to him. He was an undefined badass and if there ever is a Z2, he's gotta be in it. Cell is awesome too. So is Freiza and Super buu. Broly falls a bit short for me and bills certainly shouldn't be on here but I digress. Cooler is awesome.

Cooler has, sorry the pun, looked the "coolest out of all the Dragonball characters for me. While his entrance into the series was not the longest due to movie restrictions, he will always be my favorite character, especially for his final form.

8 Beerus Beerus

Why is bills not number 1 he is as strong a s a god maybe even stronger he gave Goku lots of trouble and made vegeta be nice to him because Goku lost in a battle with bills which made vegeta petrified of bills. Vegeta usually never backs down from a fight. Bills is definitely for sure with out a doubt number 1. No question about it.

Beerus is a god but acts like us. He's so much like us to the point that nobody can suspect that he's a god. Also, he's the most powerful out of all of the villains. Defeating Goku in SSJ3 form in 2 blows! That means he's something. Also, he could destroy planets in one snap of his fingers. Also, he's HILARIOUS! His comment on Vegeta's Bingo Dance, his reason to destroy Earth, come on. This villain cracks you up. Also, HE'S A CAT AND HAS A PET FISH AND LOVES SUSHI. How ironic is that?

Bills presents he is the strongest, after watching a specific scene, you see Bills simply flick Super Saiyan 3 Goku with a finger. Frieza got his butt kicked by a Super Saiyan, so think for a second, who is stronger? I mean come on! This isn't rocket science people!

The reason bills is low on the list is because he's not really a villain he's just doing his job

I wouldnet call him a "villain" he's just doing his job

9 Omega Shenron Omega Shenron

He can single handed beat two super sayian 4 without any problems, also goku has to use a spirit bomb which contain energy of the universe. If he came sooner. The Z fighter wouldn't be able to beat him and also he almost won. If goku die by the Minus Energy ball the Omega Shenron throw at him the universe would be doom for good. Only SS4 gogeta could stand up and fight him head on without losing

He is absolutely incredible, omega is just something else. I love his awesome huge bully-like design, it really adds to his almost godly like appearance. I must admit, I personally think he was a little too careless with his power and definitely could have been a more destructive force. None the less, omega was a insanely powerful beast.

He was toying with the 2 most powerful beings in the universe and that to with both of them on ssj4 Goku and Vegeta didn't even put a scratch on omega. Omega shenron is the most powerful shadow dragon He should be on first position here.

Why can't he be on number 1 or 2 he's just beast

10 Super Buu Super Buu

Very similar in attitude and style to his later self when he absorbs Gohan, he is a very cool and brilliant villain. How he turns the tables against Gohan is pretty awesome. - EvilAngel

Is awesome how even before absorbed outsmarts both piccolo and gohan. He's totally a chess-master and likely the smartest character of DBZ

This is really off super buu should be 1st Goku had no choice but to fuse with vegeta to beat him

Strongest form of Majn Buu and when he plays mind games with Goten, Trunks, Gohan and Goku wow!

The Contenders

11 King Piccolo King Piccolo

King piccolo was very evil he killed the dragon so no can be wished back

King piccolo even killed shenron

King Piccolo was actually a really cool and well-written character, not to mention that he wasn't ruined by any worthless filler. - RevolverOcelot

Apparently the only qualifier for some seems to be who is the strongest. Broly looks cool, is strong and was overwhelming for the time period but was flat boring and had nothing interesting personality / character wise. Ever the rather dull Kale has more personality. King Piccolo was the most intelligent villain in DB history. Destroying the dragon, seeking the martial artists to prevent any threats, catching Tien and blasting the city knowing Goku couldn't fly. KP was riveting, seems insurmountable at the time and had a lot of zest to his personality. The best DB villain, Freeza & Gero come close but no cigar.

12 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.

I personally loved INNOCENT Buu, not GOOD Buu (who is much weaker and stupider), because he could be evil or good (hence "innocent"). He perfectly combined humor with power, something that the Z fighters underestimated. He can copy any move by seeing it once, can turn anything into anything, can shape-shift, is immortal, doesn't have any metabolic needs, can unless endless power from how angry he gets, has a force field, the biggest mouth laser ever, his ki is insane, knows how to fight, has endless regeneration and energy (NEVER GETS TIRED), is ruthless yet smart, can copy himself, exists on the magical plane/can physically affect magic somehow, has super breath, is really fast for being fat, can absorb people, can't die physically, can change into any state of matter, CAN HEAL PEOPLE, and I can keep going on! The whole point of his character is to be zany and nonsensical, so he can basically get away with anything.

Common guys! How can you not like majin buu! He turns people into chocolate for goodness sake! He is by far the best villain in dbz!

He's my personal favorite because it's just funny to watch him. He could be destroying a pastry store and hurting people but I can't help but laugh. He's awesome!

Honestly, this guys story has put conflicting emotions in at least me. His childish ruthlessness yet frolicking joyful ness later on makes him quite an interesting character. It makes sense that he isn’t at the top, a peculiar villain, but awesome none the less

13 Majin Vegeta

Probably the best fight he put up against Goku during the whole series

I like this was because he was the transformation that really established vegeta as a good guy when he blows him self up also I cried when that happens

Goku had a limited time on Earth, so what does Vegeta do? Kicks his ass almost kills him and blows up Majin Buu.. Talk about being awesome, ruthless and an amazing character!

I like gt vegeta design way better

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

I love Raditz. And he is not weak because when he was fighting Goku and Piccolo, he did have the upper hand for most of the fight. They just barely managed to defeat him. The only reason they won is because Goku put Raditz in a full nelson and both were hit by Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon. I would have liked to have seen Raditz come back, switch sides, and make well with his family. Well, Raditz, I LOVE you, even if nobody else does!

Everyone pushed Raditz aside, but many of them forget that he was insanely powerful at the start of the show. Everyone else had a power level of around 300, but Raditz's was over one thousand! He was a badass, and could have easily defeated Goku and Piccolo if he hadn't been so cocky. But that arrogance simply made him a better character.

Raditz may not be strong (compared to the Z fighter now) but he was a badass. He's the first villain in DBZ and he made an amazing impression, catching a bullet and flinging it back with enough force to kill a man. Only the combined efforts of Piccolo and Goku finally killed him, and even then Goku died too!

I wish he didn't die, probably the most wasted character ever! RIP - EliHbk

15 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 is the absolute best supporting villain 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.

Best villain because he had the best fight scene against Vegeta, ruthlessly pummeling him. He also was the Commander General of Frieza's entire army and slaughtered many under his command before meeting a grisly end himself. He has the ability to transform into a reptilian beast and uses his beauty as a clever camouflage for his demonic form. Zarbon is the beauty and the beast personified in one excellent villain and is a very successful plot device for Vegeta's story.

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.

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

16 Goku Black Goku Black Goku Black (Or "Black") is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the first main antagonist of Dragon Ball Super in the Future Trunks Saga where he is revealed to be Zamasu from a prior timeline who stole the body of Goku, the series's protagonist and using it as a more.

Goku Black is one of the greatest villains. He provided a challenge that didn't require goku to just power up like every other villain he's faced. Also, my boy vegito needed to be shown again. He's too funny

Easily one of the best written villain in dragon ball history.

Goku black should be number 1

So strong, easily took out goku and Vegeta and he I over powered and did I mention Goku and Vegeta went SSGSS

17 Nappa Nappa

I thought Nappa was cool. He's really underrated, and could get some more appreciation for being the first to take out almost every Z-Fighter out at once. Why do people only like him for team Four Star? Nappa was easily one of the most unique villains in the show

Nappa - One badass

Nappa is so underrated, yet such a badass mofo. You guys only like him because of the abridged series, and that's cool, but just know that this guy took out all the Z-Fighters killing 4 of them in the process! Plus, he was the first one ever to block Goku's kamehameha. Imagine if he would train up to the Frieza Saga, man, that guy would hold his own against Frieza if so.

He is hilarious and you will quote everything he says.

Handsdown, the best villain of all time.

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

Should definitely be higher on the list. In the future that trunks did not tinker with, android 17 (with help from 18) basically took over and killed people for fun. He's ruthless as it gets.

You have to admire that he never gives up. Even when the odds were against him with Cell, he never admitted defeat and he got back up every time. Whereas someone else would probably just lay there and wait for someone to rescue them. 17 probably has more heart and more courage than anybody else.

He is ruthless random guy: please don't kill me 17: don't worry I will

He is stronger than ss4 Goku! (he is super 17 after all

It was awesome the anime when he rules the world and Piccolo cheats everyone (including viewer) and then krillin goes to play too and Gohan is apparently left alone against his two friends.

The bad part was Kami and Popo running like stupids for an hour or two.

22 Android 18 Android 18

Also known as, "the only competent female character in all of Dragon Ball Z." Her introduction was badass, showing her deck the floor with SSJ Vegeta, and Future Trunks, not to mention, a lot of cool techniques, like the Accel Dance (with 17), Zero Point field, and later, the Destructo-Disc. Her character interactions with the other androids, Krillain, and later, Mr. Satan are among some of the best in the series, and Trunks's movie really shows off her power and character as a villain.

Unfortunately however, like Chi-Chi before her, she becomes horribly insignificant after properly joining the good guys (bar a storyline where she wins the 25th World Martial Arts tournament and hilariously shakes Mr. Satan down for money), and basically just stays in the kitchen from that point onward (despite being MUCH STRONGER than Krillain, Tien, and possibly Piccolo who all at least TRY to fight).

Still, before Toriyama decided to suck the life out of her, she was one kick-ass ...more

23 Captain Ginyu Captain Ginyu

Captain Ginyu was a badass. He had been the strongest in the universe for years, even stronger than when Goku had trained to become more powerful than Vegeta who was once the strongest in the universe, until Ginyu

He got the best move in whole Dragonball, he can swap bodies! Still we don't know if this was his real body. And he got the best poses of all villains.

He should be number 2, right after Frieza. With their flashy moves and synchronized poses, the Ginyu force episodes are the most fun to rewatch. Every other villain on this list (other than Buu who is ridiculous) is too serious and one dimensional. Captain Ginyu knows that being powerful is owrthless unless you do it with style.

He can change body with anyone! Even Frieza or beerus

Baby is the best villain POSSIBLE. He infest people’s bodies and exponentially increases their power! His cause is benevolent in which he seeks justice for the saiyans committing genocide on his race. He forced hole to go SSJ 4 and was still able to trend golden ape and start stomping goku.

25 Zamasu Zamasu Zamasu is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama, Although a Supreme Kai from Universe 10, he is the true main antagonist and the catalyst of the Future Trunks Saga in Dragon Ball Super, being responsible for Goku Black's existence, working alongside him to restore "justice" more.

He killed Goku, took his body and killed his family with it. Then he became so powerful only the omni king can stop him, I prefer him as Goku black because he was a masochistic psychopath. But Zamasu is interesting because he knows he is a hypocrite but sees his actions as a noble sacrifice to save the universe. The moment when he cried was mocked but it gives him so much more character. Goku Black is still more interesting but since they are the same person I guess he deserves to be at least top 5

Definitely needs to be top 10; he's one of the strongest and most menacing villains the z fighter ever went up against

Because of him, the entire universe was destroyed. He deserves to be on the list.

For some reason below garlic jr - Dvafan2

Bojack is the best

Bojack is Incredible Force, Only Gohan deffeating like defeat Cell, to transform in the super Sayajin 2.

This is my favorite villain in the Dragon Ball Z movies. The guy is big, powerful, as strong as Perfect Cell (when he's in his Full Power Hera-Seijin Form), and he's not much for talking . He, and the Galaxy Warriors (Zangya, Kogu, Bido, and Bujin) are awesome. They should have made them a Saga.

Why the heck is he so low

The only reason Hatchiyack wasent that good was not only did he take his story from baby but we dident get enough him in the movies if we had a little more fight we could of had the next broly also it was only released on raging blast 2

Really would've liked to have seen more of him. It was kinda rude to just bring him into the show for a few measly episodes, then kill him off (I know he makes a few cameos later on, but that's just not enough. )

32 Dr. Gero Dr. Gero

Dr. Gero ruined Future Trunks's life, two timelines and nearly doomed the Earth in another, all because he wanted to get back at Goku for destroying the Red Ribbon Army and for the death of his son.

In essence, Dr. Gero was the biggest villain in the Android Saga. - CrimsonShark

He made some of the most dangerous super villains

DR. Gero was just a total badass

Dr. Gero was a major villian in dragon ball and dbz and created the androids and cell so he basically made half of dbz and dragon ball

33 Turles Turles

He's Goku, except he's evil and he knows it. He's the opposite of Goku, and a ruthless overlord. He deserved more time than he got. He's DBZ's most pure evil villain. Turles = Badass.

He is an evil beast. He looks like an evil version of Goku. But he's still very cool. And he gets stronger when he eats fruit from the tree of might.

Come on guys. He BEAT Goku! Watch the tree of night you'll see what I mean. Goku got "main characters advantage" at the end.

Turles could easily be named the original Goku Black. The only way Goku had beat him is because he was able to get ahold of a fruit from the Tree of Might.
Turles could have easily drained Earth for the Tree of Might and moved on had it not been for the 'main character's always win' trope.
If there was one movie villain that I wish was canon, it would be Turles and his tree since he was probably the most interesting and awesome characters. The Tree of Might could also make the story a lot more interesting.
What if Turles gave a fruit to someone like Cell? Or Frieza?
Turles definitely deserves to be higher on this list.

34 Baby Vegeta

True he is a unforgettable villain but not the best he does deserve top 20 though

Do I really have to say? Took down ssj3 oku and almost beat ssj4 Goku.

Baby vegeta too strong super siayan 3 Goku couldn't take him on and ssj4 Goku sure nearly took him down but oozaru version bam done

35 Ozotto

What in the world is this supposed to mean?

36 Cui Cui Cui is an elite soldier in Frieza's galactic army who is directly under Zarbon and Dodoria by rank. Cui is a purple-skinned alien, his power level is approximately 18,000 and he is Vegeta's rival. After revealing to Vegeta that Frieza is gathering the Dragon Balls on Planet Namek, he follows Vegeta more.

Vegeta's rival, eh. LOL, he get's annihilated so pitifully its kind of a shame. That, and that Cui was a total coward didn't help too much either. - CrimsonShark

37 Jeice Jeice

He's an awesome villian, along with the entire ginyu force but jeice is my favourite, cause I love his crusher ball, he's second in command, he's an all rounder fighter, not just fast or strong and he's got an awesome Australian accent, and I am Australian

I always loved this guy. Wish he did more

I wish Vegeta didn't kill him. When he died, I said clever girl under my breath.

How come Jeice is way lower than the likes of guldo, saibaman, and even that monster pilaf?

38 Super Android 17

This Guy actually could defeat SSJ4 Goku. He's power in really up there, probably matched to Bills.

Super android 17 is so buff he can take off his arm and turn it to a machine gun thing! He didn't even flinch when he got punched to the face. awesome villian

A dude alredy done this and Bills wuld overkill him with two punches.

39 Lord Slug

This guy is a Badass

40 Burter Burter

Burter is the Fastest in the Universe!

"I'm the fastest in the universe"

I really want to see him return he’ll the entire Ginyu force

41 Recoome Recoome

He is so weird. But it makes him kind of funny.

My Favorite member of the Ginyu Force.

My favorite ginyu member is burter

He was cool - EliHbk

42 Android 13 Android 13

This guy is a monster! Also when he takes 14 and 15 parts, oh dear he is a evil strong killer robot. please don't try to fight him.

Again like Hatchiyack he needed more movie time although he wrecked Goku he should of at least had a longer fight and also in the games he absolutely sucked easiest boss I ever fought

Look at my trucker hat.

Can someone tell me why Goku is not cold standing in the artic with no shirts on?

43 Champa Champa
44 Hit Hit

In all fairness, Hit is in no way, a villain. He just so happened to be the last obstacle in the tourney between Universes 6 and 7. And even then, Champa was the main antagonist of that storyline.

He killed Goku, yes, but that was because of Goku himself. And in regards to his character, Hit is actually a decent guy with morals and standards. Heck, he even sees Goku as a worthy rival. - CrimsonShark

Well hit apparently is the most dangerous assassin and he has an epic battle with him in db super and Ozotto is just a video game villain I have never heard of in the dbz vr game OK and apparently he wasn't even that tough I was told my friend in Japan he was the easiest fight in the games

This guy has no power limit + can stop time.

How cooler can you get?

45 Guldo Guldo Guldo is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
46 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.

Dodoria is the vicious powerhouse of Frieza's evil trio; Zarbon the calm and collected adviser, Frieza the sinister tyrant, and Dodoria the massive and savage brute.

47 Super Perfect Cell

He is Cell who is in 2nd place!

Yeah, he's in second place already, and it's imperfect cell

Cell after he got a zenkai

48 Android 19 Android 19

He's gonna suck the energy out of you

Suck energy? Hmm take cell and his tail if you want to be sucked WHOLE

49 Jiren Jiren

I mean come on it's your boy Jiren. No need to say a lot, he is just a badass.

If one was to consider how he acts in Episode 127 of Super, go ahead. - CrimsonShark

He barely killed Goku. Yep, barely.

No he sucks - Dvafan2

50 Super Android 13

Howdy folks I'm android 13 look at my trucker hat!
