Top Ten Underrated Dragon Ball Z Characters

The Top Ten

1 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, ...read more.

Zarbon has an excellent persona and villainous attitude. He's also got a great design and he's a morally complex character overall when it comes to both his elegant form and his monstrous deadly form. Aside from the fact that he serves Frieza with utmost loyalty, he's also one of the most brutal tacticians and military commanders in the entire universe.

Zarbon 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.

Zarbon wins on so many levels; be it by appearance, persona, or the story. As an elite military General or just plain knockout by design, Zarbon not only propelled much of the story of Dragon Ball by causing the Saiyan Genocide alongside Frieza, he did with a style and grandeur that lasted until the end of the Frieza Saga.

Zarbon 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.

2 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 ...read more.

Ruthless and vicious, Dodoria is the massive brute of the Frieza team; Zarbon being the calm adviser and Frieza the sinister tyrant.

Awesome ruthless warrior and loyal servant! Love his vicious and savage tendencies.

3 Piccolo Piccolo is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. He first appeared in chapter 161 of the Dragon Ball manga in the Shonen Jump magazine on February 22, 1988. He is a member of the alien Namekian race and has abilities such as ki manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, ...read more.

One of the smartest fighters. Has gone through massive character development in terms of both personality and power.

He is my second favorite character in Dragon Ball.

4 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.

He stopped cell, and could do so by himself(but needed emotional help), trust me if you paid attention he had the power to by himself, but his dad's ghost helped him in the attack

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

Future Trunks is way stronger than most people say he is, I mean in Xenozerse he held his own agents Bill, and he didn't even go super Saiyan... That's right Goku went super Saiyan God to handle agents Bill

Also Future trunks had no real time to train before the cell saga, because 1 he wasn't born 2 we had to hide from the OP androids(and cell later), but over took all three after he returned

7 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 is overhated. - shawnmccaul22

8 ChiChi

She and Goku actually had good values. ChiChi even taught good values to her sons. But people could not understand that. It was not that ChiChi didn't want Gohan to not protect earth. There were thousands other reasons. Even Goku had reasons to go to train but does not mean he never loved his family. Swines Vegeta and Bulma spoilt Trunks. Trunks became arrogant and stupid because of them both because immature fans could not understand. - Monday23

She's arguably the most levelheaded character in the show. - girlcool

9 Master Roshi Master Roshi is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

The Contenders

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

We didn't see any of him after the beginning of dbz even though he was goku's only surviving family member

13 Uub

Super needs to give Uub a big role, I feel like they will. A lot of characters have been forgot about and left behind to be in the background but Uub has been talked about in Super so we know that he will be in it, I just hope he has a big role like he deserves. - taytayxtaytay

14 Yamcha

I really do like Yamcha, I feel like he gets a lot of hate for being weak. Yeah I get it, he's lost a few times but he is far from weak. I think he brings a lot of humour to Dragon Ball and I feel like he should be used more to be honest. - taytayxtaytay

Yamcha is extremely underrated He took on olibu with ease and olibu was equal to pikkon so yamcha is by far not weak.

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

Goten is son of Goku, of Gohan and
the youngest super saiyan. He had more potential. I am not saying as much as Goku or Gohan but neary equal.
