Top 10 Most Overhated Dragon Ball Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

People always hate on him for being weak. Dude, he's the third strongest human in existence. Yes, he isn't as strong as the other Z fighters, but he is still way stronger that you. Also, he is a very funny and friendly character. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I really like Yamcha. I don't hate characters for being weak, they just need to try their best and that's fine by me. Yamcha is a good friend, and he tried his best to help. What's wrong with that? - Goku02

Yamcha is not only the hottest DBZ male character, he's also the best DBZ character in general!

I don't think Hercule should be considered the most overhated as I think a lot of his hate is well deserving (not all of it but quite a bit). Yamcha on the other hand is just regarded as weak and pathetic even though he is being compared to the likes of Saiyans and maybe Krillin. That's like comparing a juicy tender steak with a nice cut of meat seasoned perfectly made by a chef that took 10 years in culinary school to a nicely prepared grilled hamburger with the melted cheese on top. On the everyday level that hamburger with cheese is appreciated though if you get that steak everyday that burger means nothing.

Sorry I'm hungry...

2 Mr. Satan Mr. Satan

To be honest, Hercule is a very important character. He made Majin Buu good and he used his voice to convince the people of earth to give their energy to the spirit. He also takes credit for what the Z fighters do, but, you have to think. Satan takes the attention so that the Z fighters don't have to deal with it and can devote all their time to saving the universe. He is a very overhated character when it comes down to it. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

People on Earth only trusted him because they thought he defeated Cell. If he hadn't lied to everybody like that, people would have known that Goku, Gohan and the Z fighters were the real heroes and trusted them instead. - Goku02

3 Videl Videl

I really like Videl. She's annoying at first, but she has gotten better. Now she's a really great character. - Goku02

People hate on Videl just because she birthed Pan. (Specifically, GT Pan.) First of all, GT is not canon so that doesn't count, and also, she isn't actually Pan, she merely created Pan reproductively. By that logic, you must hate Gohan as well. Honestly, Videl is probably one of my top Ten favorite characters. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Pan has lots of potential. I believe that she'd grow up great. In Super, she has portrayed the ability to fly at a few months old. Just forget about GT Pan and give the canon Pan a chance. - Goku02

4 Chi-Chi Chi-Chi

She's annoying. Bulma, Android #18, Videl, Pan,... are much better. And Akira Toriyama has even said so himself : Goku cares about everyone equally. She forced Goku to marry her so she can't complain that she has to do this and that and Goku's always training... She has already known that Goku is a fighter, yet she still forced him to marry her. That happens when you marry someone you barely knows. No-one cares that she's hated, she deserves the hate. - Goku02

She's so stupid though and anyone who thinks Goku loves her as a wife is delusional. Goku cares about everyone equally. Chichi means as much to him as Yamcha.

Not that anyone cares. Chi Chi doesn't bring anything to the show. Toriyama hates writing her. The only female character he likes is Bulma.

It seems like the hatred for her come from people who refuse to see what she gets dealt on the daily and their projections of their favorite characters, namely Gohan (when he still ended up being what they want him to be, he is just never written back into that, from Toriyama's own perception of HIS character), that they claim she "ruins".

How would you feel if your spouse doesn't provide for the family and refuses to work basically forcing the family to live on welfare (in this case it's her father's inheritance)? Of course, this is never empathized since battle shonen 101 and we're supposed to not think of Goku as a bad family man.

People also only look at the fact she made Gohan study and overlook the fact that she's the reason Gohan ended up being a well-mannered and attentive man who's actually there for his family plus Piccolo's harshness in the beginning of the series made him all so grown up for his age (which he later apologized for). Neither she or ...more - dhochoy

5 Pan Pan Pan (パン, Pan) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. She is the granddaughter of Earth's savior, Goku and the world champion, Mr. Satan. Pan's heritage is primarily Earthling, being the offspring of the Saiyan-Earthling hybrid Gohan and the Earthling ...read more.

Yeah pan is very amazing and yeah non canon so it doesn't count and Pan is very amazing cute as a baby and a kid as well.

I love Pan. - Goku02

Pan gets a lot of hate for how she was in GT. GT Pan was annoying, however, GT is, once again, non canon, and, in Dragon Ball Super she is actually pretty cool. She learned to fly at less than a year old. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

6 Puar Puar

She can be annoying, but she is useful with her shapeshifting and whatnot. People should not hate on her by deeming her "useless". - TheEvilNuggetCookie

7 Goten Goten

I love Goten so much. Why do people think that he's weak? He's stronger than Goku and Gohan were at his age, and WHY do people deem him 'useless' but not Kid Trunks? - Goku02

Whattt dun't hate on Goten-kun he's mah favorite.

8 Goku Goku Son Goku (Born Kakarrot) is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. His abilities include super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. ...read more.

Yeah people hating him just because he's popular, which is so laammme. - Goku02

He's the most privilege out of the bunch. A Mary Sue

9 Pilaf Pilaf
10 Guldo Guldo

He's 'just there' for me. I don't hate him nor like him. - Goku02

He can stop time. Yes, he's weak, but you really can't hate on his supernatural abilities. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

He's ridiculous!

The Contenders

11 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's one of my favourite anime characters of all time! She may be spoilt and a little annoying at times, but she is, along with Goku, the two most important DBZ characters. - Goku02

Yeah, she's naggy, but she's also a genius that has helped saved the world a multitude of times. There aren't a ton of Bulma haters, but the ones that do hate her are incredibly irritating. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

She is a little annoying, but I'm pretty sure she's a smart person. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yeah, I don't think she's hated that much at all. She's got many Vegeta fans behind her since Vegebul is so popular.

12 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. ...read more.

He's an extremely loyal friend. And he's very important if you really think about it. - Goku02

Krillin's in my top ten favourite DBZ characters. - Goku02

See Yamcha. Just that he is literally THE strongest human... And people still call him weak. He is even stronger than Tien. (Toriyama said so himslef.) - TheEvilNuggetCookie

And Uub doesn't exist until a later part in the series we haven't gotten to yet. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

13 Mr. Popo Mr. Popo
14 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 ...read more.

Many people seem to dislike him after the Cell saga because of his slacking off in training and the stupid Great Saiyaman thingy, but I think it's only natural, considering his pacific nature. He's my second favourite DBZ character of all time! - Goku02
