Top 10 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

By far, this is 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 defeat a hero without allowing the protagonist to have a chance.

The most brutal and nonstop action occurs 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.

2 Transformed at Last

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

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 series. This is where DBZ should have ended.

4 The Long Awaited Fight

Majin Vegeta and SS2 Goku are having their own incredible showdown for the victor - perfect episode!

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

5 Goku vs. Vegeta... A Saiyan Duel!

The first and the best fight ever.

The first fight between Goku and Vegeta - very nice episode like the others.

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.

It's, 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.

7 Save the World

Because this was the most intense episode in the history of DBZ! Still the best!

The final Kamehameha battle will decide the fate of the entire universe.

8 Upgrade to Super Saiyan
9 Videl is Crushed
10 Another Super Saiyan?

As Frieza and King Cold prepare to strike, a mysterious purple-haired boy armed with a sword comes out of nowhere and challenges them to fight.

Who would have thought Future Trunks would kick Frieza's ass?

The Contenders
11 Super Saiyan 3
12 A Hero's Farewell
13 A Whole New Gohan

Gohan has appeared, and his power is so 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.

15 Awakening

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

The birth of SSJ2 teen Gohan. My favorite episode.

16 Minute of Desperation
17 No Refuge From Recoome
18 The Return of Goku
19 He's Here
20 Goku vs. Cell

A fight which those two were expecting to fight each other in throughout the entire Cell Saga.

21 Time's Up!
22 Vegeta Attacks
23 Vegito...Downsized
24 Touchdown on Namek
