The Top Ten
"And so, one of the earths greatest warriors has vanished in a blinding flash of light. Having made the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of his loved ones. His name, was Vegeta, a proud saiyan prince."
Greatest moment in anime.
SHOULD BE #1!. The most epic moment in DBZ history, still gives me super chills every time I watch it. I love DBZ, I will never forget this amazing moment. Vegeta the proud Saiyan Prince! - brodyisaboss
Favorite moment, without a doubt. Also by far the saddest death in the series.
I love how badass vegeta can be at times, and this is the only time ill ever allow vegeta to be the "good guy" - apexchiken12 Comments
The greatest moment in all of anime
Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3, Legendary Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 4, Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan God 2; out of all these defining moments when Goku turned Super Saiyan for the first time it was spectacular! This was my favorite moment in DBZ before it was overused by Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten and Kid Trunks! It was awesome! It proved that Super Saiyan 1 was like having the power of a god until Goten and Kid Trunks made it look pathetic!
Goku speech to frieza: "I am the hope of the universe. I am the answer to all living things that cry out for peace. I am protector of the innocent. I am the light in the darkness. I am truth. Ally to good! Nightmare to you! "
Legendary, breathtaking moment.
For those who haven't experienced DBZ, I feel sorry for you. It is the greatest show there has ever been, and that's not just opinion: it's fact.
And this moment where Goku first transforms into the most awesome Super Saiyan remains a classic, fan favourite moment, that changed the series forever.
Though there are other amazing moments, this has gotta be the best moment, despite the tough opposition. - EvilAngel
Gohan has always been a character who can't take as much heat as the others or be as powerful as them. To see him let loose and go crazy on cell is the best feeling imaginable.
This is the greatest moment because it is the first and the only time you see gohan go all out and be completely ruthless to his enemy.
He seemed to be weak but showed everyone could be proud of him. I shouted yes when he defeated him. This should be number one. I love gohan
Gohan's scream, goku's shadow figure, gohan slowly walking forward.. Everything was too epic6 Comments
Goku going ssj may have been very ground breaking in anime but for me I does not compare to the amount of build up around Gohan and his power which makes this seen all the more fulfilling. after all the pain and suffering and ptsd he could not take it anymore and he let go. in my opinion the best seen in anime and trust me I've watched many
If you just watch the original dub cut, it's a top 10 moment, if you watch the original sub, nothing compares.
This moment easily number two to goku going super saiyan against frieza but vegetas final atonement is up there too. Its all neck and neck. But for me personally I wished the series ended at the frieza saga would of been a perfect endind. But in saying that I'm also glad it didn't or I wouldn't of been able to see these other breathtaking moments
Its hard to decide between this and Cell's Death.3 Comments
Remember how shocked you were when Goku turned Super Saiyan? It turned out that it was an actual thing, not just a legend for an insanely powerful warrior. When the original dragon Ball aired, it told the story of a child trying to become the strongest on the planet. By the end of it, he had. And those who had watched it before Z couldn't really get how much more powerful he had become until now. Suddenly, Goku wasn't just the most powerful child on the planet, but the most powerful warrior in the entire galaxy. It was insane.
Then the next season starts (like, actually starts. Screw filler) and Vegeta's on earth, and everyone is just kind of chilling out, when suddenly they find out that after being beaten horribly, cut into pieces, and blown up by a planet, Frieza is still alive. He's stronger than he ever was, he's coming to earth to kill everyone, and he brought backup in the form of his dad, who's just as powerful as him. None of them could even really handle Frieza's ...more
tRUNKS is so bad ass
frieza comes in with his father and everybody's panicking ant the trunks comes in and destroy ass holes in a few swings of sword. - arcanine
Trunks comes and kicks total butt! Showing a whole new character and side to a amazing character!
Trunks my favorite even I think he is stronger than gohan5 Comments
totally epic as gokus hair grew loger and longer until super saiyan 3
This is clearly the most epic moment in DBZ. Goku is a boss and will never be surpassed. This moment encapsulates that
AND THIS IS TO GO EVEN FURTHER BEYOND!
Uhh it was pretty lame like 3 mins screaming. I can imagine the actor going "Cut! I need a throat pill."2 Comments
Wow how amazing. Gets his ass handed to him in a fashion that makes everyone realise that cell is 10x stronger than himself. Charges up this attack for about 5 'minutes with ever increasing intense music. Challenges cell who is evidently the most powerful being in the universe. *piano hits* and cell is like OHH
One of the best moments only equaled by Gohan killing cell and Goku turning ssj 3
How is this not in the top 10 ;(...
Imagine Frieza, Cell or Buu sacrificing himself to save Gohan. That is what it felt like. The main villain from Dragon Ball sacrificing himself too save his archenemy's child, just unbelievable. Great writing.
Piccolo completes his character arc by leaving behind his evils in order to save his former enemy's son. It's a heartwarming conclusion to his development training Gohan throughout the saga and started the close friendship between the two that still holds to this day 20 years later in Dragon Ball Super. It also meant the end of the titular Dragon Balls which led the main cast to planet Namek, Freeza, and Super Saiyan. Still gives me chills to this day
One of theEmotional moment of dbz
Honestly the best pure fight in the entire series. No BS talking or stalling, just Goku and vegeta continuously kicking the crap out of each other.
This was a defining moment for our favourite character! This shows that he doesn't envy his rival, but only wants to be stronger. Goku made more sacrifices, is stronger and has more love. All Vegeta wanted was to take the honour of the strongest person on earth, which was stripped of off him by Goku, meaning all the efforts he put through for 7 years were still a nothing when Goku showed up.
When bobidi commands vegeta, he refuses to take his orders with the greatest moment and quote "you may have invaded my mind and body but there's something a saiyan always keeps HIS PRIDE!
Goan at is prime
No not one character has done what thug, ssj2 Gohan has done. Ever. Every other moment is a repeat. The show is dead cause they really on two instead of the whole.
He ripped their heads off
Are you ready? To witness a power not seen for thousands of years?
Best moment in dbz.. One of the few moments Vegeta really opens his heart and even starts crying. - NightAntilli
This was hella sad.
Vegeta really gets on my nerves always babbling about how much better he is than Goku. Frieza is my favourite character in the whole of Dragonball Z mainly because he absolutely dominated him and actually made vegeta cry! Perfect saga and a great moment.
Note: Kai. - Lasvegasxavier
I used to watch Dragon Ball Z on the Family Channel at night times ever since they took it off I haven't watched it in about 6 years now but I do remember watching this buu tried to hold it and didn't so that was good times I used to be a Dragon Ball Z FREAK back then - SmoothCriminal
EPIC! Goku's legendary spirit bomb draws an end to the chaos of the monster Majin buu.
The final chance. It was funny when vegeta was rejected
this would be the best moment ever! - animedude71 Comment
Massive brute with unstoppable tactics! Toppled Vegeta with vicious finesse! - PrinceZarbon
Look people die and come back all the time... But Goku was on his last life. He chose to make the sacrifice knowing he couldn't be wished back! When he says "goodbye..." You really felt it. Like he was truly saying goodbye forever.
This is pretty much self-explanatory, considering that Piccolo didn't really care for any other living being other than himself, and here he is, saving the son of his mortal enemy, at the risk of his own life.
One of the emotional moment in dbZ history
This moment was epic to me. After the longest and bloodiest battle so far (4 Z-fighters die! ), after a desperate situation with Goku K.O. for a long time, Goku and Krillin Spirit Bomb, Gohan Ozaru... finally Vegeta is exhausted and decides to leave. Then Krillin manages to rise against Vegeta with Yagirobee's sword, like saying "stop here bastard, WE win! ". And then you know, Goku asks Krillin please friend, forgive him, on Vegeta's face. Superb. - ginelup
Awesome and funny because he was fat frist try secound weak so funny
How is this not higher?
It was a good twist!
I wish I was Gohan in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber with Goku for one year preparing for the fight against the Androids.
Why the hell is this a best moment?
This scene made me cry
Funniest episode in the show
Lols this was the best part of the entire show. 2nd gohan going ss2
