Best Dragon Ball Z Episodes

Dragon Ball Z is a 1989 Japanese anime series, a sequel to Dragon Ball that adapts the latter chapters of the Dragon Ball manga. Dragon Ball Z continues the adventures of Goku, who defends the Earth against various extraterrestrial villains.
The Top Ten
1 Zarbon Transformed

The most brutal and nonstop action in one single episode. Zarbon transforms into a monster and pounds the daylights out of Vegeta with multiple roundhouses, pinwheel kicks, a relentless headbutt combo and a savage piledriver. Vegeta doesn't even have a chance to fight back as Zarbon annihilates him to the brink of death.

By far the most brutal and savage fight in the series; much more devastating and powerful than an entire saga of fighting. Zarbon dominates this battle most of all; it's the only time we see a villain completely butcher a hero without allowing the protagonist to have a chance.

Zarbon's demonic reptilian transformation is the one most surprising as it is simultaneously an intense shift that is swift and deadly; quickly disposes of Vegeta without allowing a chance to fight back.

Zarbon actually pumped up and became beastly in milliseconds and was also the most vicious when he transformed, substantially altering his characteristic and mannerism as well as his physical appearance.

2 Transformed at Last

No one expected that there was a transformation like that! Best scene ever when Frieza blew up Kriling, and Goku snapped after that gruesome scene.
Legend of all Animes no matter what people say.

This legendary episode, THE main reason why we all got hooked on DBZ, should be nr 1!. This is what defines DBZ. Shame on you so cald fans.

That was the best episode I ever watched...

How is this so low? This is the best!

3 Final Atonement

This is where DBZ should have ended... By not doing so Toriyama did great injustice to the price... This is where DBZ should have ended...

4 The Long Awaited Fight

Not to mention the dbz verse were waiting for this moment unknowingly.
When the showdown began it was awesome as hell. Both Goku and of course Vegeta,they were both great. We got to see all of vegetas pain,depression, sadness,anger,humiliation in one shot.

Majin Vegeta and ss2 Goku are having their own incredible showdown for the victor perfect episode!

6 Spirit Bomb Triumphant

Goku goes Super Saiyan 3, Vegeta nearly sacrifices his life just to stall, and Goku unleashes his final Spirit Bomb to defeat the series final villain.

Its you know the sort of final episode of dbz when the fight ends. personally I think that goku should have defeated him with ssj 3

Ssj3 couldn't have beaten kid Buu.

12 A Hero's Farewell
13 A Whole New Gohan

Gohan has appeared and his power is amazing that he beats Super Buu without even breaking a sweat

14 The End of Vegeta

It contains the moment that touched me the most in DBZ: When Vegeta is killed by Frieza and he tears up while telling Goku how Frieza made him into who he was.

Cell finally pushes gohan to the limit and he explodes into SSJ2. Amazing.

The birth of SSJ2 teen Gohan. My favorite episode
