Worst Dragon Ball Z Characters
The Top Ten
Chi chi is the worst character in dbz history, it is because of her Gohan became a wimp in the first place, Goku should have married Bulma instead.
Why is she not #1? She's stupid, ugly, annoying, and useless. She basically forced Goku to marry her. Wanted Gohan to marry Videl for her money. She's so much worst than Hercules.
Chi Chi's character is a poor one. Stupid, selfish and overall loud, very loud. Most people despise her because of that alone. She has an insufferably bad attitude that makes you wish she was right in front of you to tell her shut up. Before you defend her desire to make him smart with a good education. He was home schooled and sheltered. He demonstrates he is very socially inept in his high school saga to the point you'd just wish it would stop. He's even demonstrated that he does not know how to even cook. What's more making a child sit and study every single day with no exercise hinders the development of the brain. Her character is a pointless element of conflict overall. Her father is a martial artist, she was raised to be a martial artist, her husband is a martial artist as well as her in-laws Hercule and Videl. To break these traditions with her children despite the fact she willingly married a martial artist is purely selfish and only alienating her entire family in the ...more
Sure studying is more important than Earth and your friend's lives
Halt your nerd rage guys, you should all note that, in the Buu saga, he actually developed into a decent person; he bought Goku time to charge up his spirit bomb, convinced the entire world to contribute their energy to said spirit bomb, and rescued Vegeta before the spirit bomb went down on Buu. He is not the worst fighter in the world; keep in mind he IS the legitimate world champion. We may mock him for being so damn weak compared to the Z Fighters, but his strength and durability are actually insane for an earthling. He took a punch from Buu to the face and survived! Additionally, he IS responsible for getting Android 16's head to Gohan, thus making him actually able to transform into Super Saiyan 2. I think we all sometimes forget what Hercule has contributed to the series; he's funny, derpy, and without him, the Z fighters, earth, and the universe itself would be no more. - RevolverOcelot
Took credit for Cell games, Took credit for winning tournaments, Took credit for defeating Buu and because of all this he's a horrible father to Videl, I wish he was filler
Yeah, he wasn't directly responsible, but he was definitely a big help, though. Without him, Gohan would've probably never turned SSJ2, and Goku & Vegeta wouldn't have defeated Kid Buu. - MKBeast
Hercule is so fake, HE MADE THE Z FIGHTERS LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF WEAKLINGS WHEN REALLY HE MADE US HUMANS LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS BECAUSE OF HIS LIES! He's A DISGRACE TO THE HUMAN RACE!
He is so fake. He took the credit for defeating Cell when it was actually Gohan who defeated Cell. He thinks he's the best fighter in the world and he's actually the worst.
The thing to remember about Pan is that she is a fictional character, and if she acts a certain way, it's because the writers wanted her to be that way. If she's bossy and whiny, it's because the writers wanted her to be bossy and whiny. If she never does anything useful, it's because the writers didn't want her to ever do anything useful. If she's significantly weaker than Goku and Trunks, it's because the writers wanted her to be significantly weaker than Goku and Trunks. And why would they want those things? Based on the legacy left by DB and DBZ, I'd say it's because the people involved with this franchise either can't imagine a female being useful and likeable, or simply refuse to do so. That's a reason to hate the people working on this thing, not to hate the character herself who, as an adolescent girl with super strength, would've been a great character in the hands of competent writers.
Hey! Don't count DBGT it's non-canon! In the original Dragon Ball manga, Pan is really cute and adorable and powerful and has potential, being able to fly round the Earth at the age of four thus made her far stronger than Goku and Gohan at the same age. She's one of the cutest dbz characters alongside kid Goten! She's also my 4th favorite character
Pan is one of the best female characters next to arele, bulma, lunch, Android 18, videl, chichi as a child,
However I can't stand son gohan from the start he's more of a comic relief gag character that's quite the crybaby
My absolute favourite DBZ character shouldn't be here. She's such an adorable yet powerful baby and a strong-willed little fighter, too! - SaiyanGirl
Still the best.
He's the most stagnant, predictable character in the entire series.
I hate how the new cool thing is to make goku look like the worst father/husband ever over some little things.
Slapping chichi though walls: it was an accident he wasn't used to his strength he even instantly apologized to her when it happened.
Leaving his family when he could see them: he stayed dead even though he could come back alive because he thought staying dead would keep the earth safer. Most of the huge threats in DBZ where after goku or came to earth because of him. It's not that far fetched to believe that him staying dead would lessen that, right?
Saving hurcule & dende instead of trunks & his own son:
Come on! You could tell there was instant regret even before vegeta started yelling at him! Plus, he thought getting dende would make it possible for them to wish them back (yes that wasn't the case, but he forgot some important details).
Give goku a break for fss sake
Abandon his family. Bad father. Bad husband. Uneducated. Complains about having to provide for his family. Actually slapped Chi chi and send her flying through a tree. His fans are really stupid.
Goten is so cute and powerful. He should be last.
NO Goten-chan is the best! I love Goten-chan! - SaiyanGirl
The cutest lil' monster
Alright. Chi-Chi is at the top spot, which is fine. But Goten deserves the second place. He's just the poor man's kid Goku/Gohan without any character development and the personality that made his father and brother so charismatic. The only purpose of his existense was being the fusion partner to Trunks.
Why is Bulma currently at #5 on this list and Master Roshi only at #11? Does that mean people see a problem with Bulma's behavior but not with that of a man who sexually harasses her? I realize the show plays up Bulma as a stupid teenage girl who doesn't deserve to be treated well and encourages the audience to sympathize with Master Roshi as a lonely old man who just wants to have a little fun, but you'd think people would be smart enough to see through that.
Honestly guys? How is Master Roshi not closer to the top? He's groped and sexualized girls and women just for the heck of it. An old man wanting to grab a 16 year old's boobs is not funny, it's creepy.
I find him REALLY creepy he's some old guy who lives on an island in the middle of the ocean and all he does is treat woman who are like 16 like objects... And he only accepted Krillin as his student because Krillin gave him a dirty magazine... (I'll admit that part was kinda funny)
Never understood why this man was never put in jail for his actions. I don't care how old he, it's the fact that he gropped 16-30 year old women's breast and butts. That's disgusting and that counts as sexually harassment. I mean honestly, you can't tell me that his whole character is creepy. What perverted old man lives miles away from the city on a small island and is addicted to seeing and touching young girls? CREEPPY. I'm shocked that he's not higher on this list. - IAmShook
She used to be annoying, but she has changed for the better, why hate her? - Goku02
She made me think I could fly...
Pan exists because of her
I hate her, her dad and her stupid daughter
I really wish Bulma wasn't on this list, she helped save the Earth more than once, she created the Dragon Radar, and the time machine that changed the future completely, and also she's the reason why Trunks exists
It makes me cringe to see Bulma so high on this list, because we're not supposed to like Bulma. We're supposed to think she's stupid and annoying by comparison to the male characters around her. We're supposed to think she's useless. We're supposed to judge her for being a slut while ogling her during "fan service" moments. During the early episodes of Dragon Ball, she was deliberately characterized with the most un-likeable personality possible so that we would not see her as being worthy of dignity or respect, and would thus excuse the massive amount of sexual harassment perpetrated against her. Saying you hate her for those qualities is like saying you hate Mr. Popo because you think his black skin is ugly: well, yeah, you're kinda supposed to think that, and if you do, you've bought into the show's prejudices hook, line, and sinker.
The show's writers simply refuse to allow Bulma to receive any validation. When Bulma, Krillin, and Gohan arrive on Namek, Bulma ...more
You're crazy, bulma is the best, this very rich
Bulma doesn't deserve to be on here. She's way too awesome. Best female character.
Somebody dig a grave Yamcha showed up
He's not actually bad, just useless and can't even survive at least 2 minutes. - TheRegular1227
Whenever there's serious fighting going on, Yamcha always seems to be the first person to be killed or incapacitated in some way. He hasn't been cool since like the fifth episode of Dragon Ball. When the gang went up against Emperor Pilaf, Oolong did more to save the day.
I'm so glad that on DBS, he isn't even on the team anymore. This dude is useless and had no purpose on the show or fighting for that matter. Any time there's a fight going on the rest of the gang can survive but this dude can't even survive for at least 2 minutes. Pathetic. - IAmShook
Looks like the series completely lost hope for Gohan ever since DBS. Neither him, Vegeta, nor his father Goku deserve to be on the list, despite all of this.
How can anyone hate Gohan? : ( He's kind, humble, powerful, badass, well-developed, and an all-around perfect character. Doesn't deserve to be ten miles near this list.
If you're watching this show as an adult female, it's very... patronizing... to see a five-year-old boy portrayed with more dignity than a grown woman with a background in science and business (Bulma).
Gohan's a perfect character. He's strong yet kind, smart yet humble, with amazing character development. He's good looking too. What to hate there? - SaiyanGirl
Stupid kid and lame. What was his point other than going against Gero and getting absorbed? The future version was more effective for plot but still sucked and got creamed by Future Trunks with ease.
He sucks and was a wimpy stupid character who didn't even get a death scene, stupid and pathetic childish idiocy of driving a car around and playing cowboy, what a waste of airtime.
Useless loser added to appeal to the more useless fan base, 17 sucked throughout all his appearances.
One of the worst characters in dbz and even worse than 18. Was the dumbest android and sucked, only purpose was to show off and get absorbed by Cell.
He is the reason the buu saga waa so unbearable. On top of having a terribly uninspiring theme, he is a snobby over confident idiot, who somehow managed to get the worst qualities from trunks and goten. His double voice gave me headaches, his mastery of ssj3 put the entire power-up to shame, he has ugly old person looking hair, and deserved to die in the hyperbolic time chamber. Anytime he would open his mouth I would hope that Goku and Vegeta would come back from the grave to teach him respect, he further demoted Piccolo to babysitter AND pushover, and made me want to root for the destruction of Earth because even Super Buu had more redeemable qualities.
In short, he sucks and I hate him.
Stupid. He had to make the fight seem 'more fantastic' or whatever for no one & tricked piccolo for no reason. Then he had nerve to yell at piccolo for destroying the door for when all he knew that was the only chance to save earth. It's all his fault they got trapped, all people of earth got destroyed, & goten & young trunk's characters r so hated.
(Spoiler) Gotenks is the reason the beginning of the Fusion and kid buu saga was so stupid. He is too over confident resulting most of the Z fighters to be turned into chocolate. Then when he hides his super saiyan 3 powers he can finally do something useful.
Overall he is a stupid over confident idiot
Arrogant little douche. Too cocky for such an inexperienced fighter. His attitude is basically the same as Vegeta's but times 10000 but he doesn't have the skills to back up the arrogance which makes him even worse. Too bad Goten's personality was so weak compared to Trunks, then we might have gotten a more balanced attitude with Gotenks. Goten would have at least listened to Piccolo when in the hyperbolic time chamber and not tried to truck everyone into thinking he was weak to prolong the battle just for show.
This guy was a bunch of wasted potential. It actually seemed like Goku and friends had to face an interesting dilemma: If they won, they would get the Super Dragon Balls, but they would also be trouncing Frost's efforts to benefit his universe, and they would potentially be ruining billions of lives. Then the writers completely tossed that out and made him a generic tyrannical overlord at the last second, just so we wouldn't feel bad about him getting his butt handed to him. And the reason that people hate this guy is because they think he cheated in the tournament, even though the poison was a natural part of his body much like Magetta's thermo-reactor.
The only reason people like him is because he looks like Frieza, other than that he sucks - Dashiefan
This guy wants to CHEAT to defeat Goku and Piccolo? He should be #1
He cheated in the tournament - ikerevievs
Oh my I hate krillin because he is bald. He is technically the strongest human, helped Goku save the world several times, saved Gohan's life, fought Frieza, helped Goku transform in the most memorable anime scene ever, threw the spirit bomb, fought kid buu, but sure, he is bald.
Actually He has a better character and truly understood Goku
I find it difficult to take Krillin seriously because he's died so many times it's cliche.
He's like the DBZ equivalent of the "rapper" Pitbull.
OP and boring! Each Broly movie is more insufferable than the last. - jimmy12lee
I like him. But I like him for how ridiculously over the top the film made him out to be, which is pretty much why half the world hates him.
No character depth, blatant Hulk ripoff, and he's just bad in general
Nothing says "whiny baby" like a fully grown man with nearly Hulk-level power and infant-level emotional maturity.
"Weeeh, weh, I'm crazy 'cause baby Carrot wouldn't stop crying, so I'm gonna seek revenge forever and ever and never forgive him! "
"Yeah... Our king tried to kill us and our planet was destroyed, son. Clearly worse has happened. Also, how could you remember something like that when you were only a few days old?! "
Pointless character. She's unnecessary.
Poor Vegeta have such a stupid daughter.
Bulla is such a dependent kid. She cannot fight and is practically useless and weak. So disappointing considering how powerful her father is. The one character I can call useless in every way. - SaiyanGirl
Idiotic, useless, pointless, dumb, ugly,... The list goes on.
He's so annoying and is so bossy. He thinks that he is the greatest thing to ever exist and his biggest threat is like if I'm annoyed I'll just destroy you he thinks everyone is annoying
Onedimensional man baby who ruins the whole point of the series
Purple Cat God thing that is stronger than anyone else expect Whis
His whole existence now is like, if we find an enemy that is hard to defeat it's ok, because we have Beerus to do it for us if we can't.
Ha, he is funny. Remember he did us a favor and killed chi chi?
You're completely crazy, a great villain hard to beat on any device
I thought Majin Buu was FUNNY! Still though, I prefer Kid Buu and Super Buu! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Buu is funny! I loved when he saved bee and he got shot and popped the bullet out his belly and said "You dropped this! "
I spent 5 minutes trying to figure out who this was until I figured out they meant Chiaotzu. - bla2719
I think this character needed more explanation. Why does he look like a creepy levitating doll? Why does he never change mentally or physically? Is he retarded? Why are he and Tien so attached to one another?
He looks so damn pointless on DBZ. He did nothing noteworthy. He's pretty much a filler. At least Tien fought against Super Buu and Cell
Chiaotzu really should be higher on the list. The only reason he isn't is because he has two entries, one being misspelled.
She's not that bad, I actually find her scarier when she was married to Krillin (Roshi found out the skull crunching way). Android 17, on the other hand, is an overrated moron! His plan to reach Goku at Kamihouse (which is in the middle of the ocean) is to drive there in a van, WHEN HE'S AWARE HE AND HIS SIBLINGS CAN FLY AT OVER MACH 9! It's no wonder Imperfect Cell choose to eat him first, it's to get him over with! Super 17 (basically C-17 and the lazily named "Hell-Fighter 17" combined) is even lamer, with his death by Goku - I mean "Kid Goku" charging through his belly being a complete rehash of King Piccolo's death.
Who put her on here! She's the best female character by far
Such a boring character...
She's become so useless and is only relevant if Krillin is on screen, which is not much.
Puar isn't supposed to fight. Ya he's not the best (wait he is) bee and puar and adorable. Yet nobody but Yamaha the weak one likes him? Puar isn't supposed to fight you 4 year olds! It doesn't matter if he's weak he is not programmed to fight! And he is so compassionate, and you should've saw him when Yamaha died. I mean I didn't care but puar of course did. He has the sweetest voice and I almost thought he was a girl!
I want to vomit every time this character speaks. That picture alone makes me want to gauge my eyes out.
Such a boring flying cat, Yamaha, Goku, chichi, bulma, krillin and everybody else are better stop voting for them seriously what's wrong with you people
Worst voice ever. Very painful with sensitive hearing. If Puar is on the screen, turn down the volume, a lot!
Should be in the top 5 - ikerevievs
Single most obnoxious character in the series and to be shown off so much and to be so powerful was disgraceful for the entire series.
Why is she at 27 and goku at 7 she is an annoying turd that wont shut up and she turns into a fat blob with legs - Dvafan2
Take her to the number one spot!
I know he's not as bad as Master Roshi, but if sexual predation is a worse offense than whining, he should still be higher than every female character on this list, even Pan.
The episode that introduced Oolong contained a lot of pedophilic humor that was pretty gross. Afterwards, he went on to become the most pointless character in the entire series.
Oolong is a coward he turns into a huge knight and then runs away and he's completely useless in Z.
Transform into badass then ran away
A disappointing execution of an interesting concept. - MKBeast
He's not Broly, he's the MONSTURD! Actually, he should have starred in that film!
Like Goku is better than Vegeta, Goten is better than stupid Trunks. Smarter, way cuter and more powerful too. Poor Goten has a pile of poo for a friend, he deserves better than retarded Trunks.
Trunks is the most spoilt kid I've seen in any anime, but his brainless sister should be above him.
Everyone's favorite kid. He's so cute and badass. No surprise since his father is the most badass character in anime.
He's so young yet so powerful abd badass. Very undeserving to be anywhere on this list. - TrunksIsBae
Bit of a random way to end the series.
Although he's said to be the reincarnation of Buu, he actually seems to be the reincarnation of Nam from Dragon Ball.
Some bald guy.: urg slightly bald guy
Cell was stupid. Unlike the true sinister evil that is Frieza, Cell was just a competitor with a fighting edge and that makes for a good power level challenge but does very little for being truly evil and this is why Cell sucked.
He is good character. But seriously what?! He always complains perfection and that he is perfect warrior WHEN HE IS NOT
Never liked Cell. Took too long to die and the death wasn't much; rather anticlimactic compared to previous villains.
He is good but he can't stop saying perfection like what!? Also he always says that he needs #18 to complete his goal
This guys a senseless man that only does things for his own benefit, destroying planets and killing billions of living beings
What? Is it because he sounds like grandma?
Come on! He's an iconic villain for DBZ. He's the reason why Goku went Super Saiyan. - TheRegular1227
I don't need to explain why
Well, he looked like a flie, so it was quite fitting Fat Buu smushed his ugly face.
Ugh, this thing. I hate its face, his dress, his lipstick and false eyelashes and nail polish, I hate his fruity voice and I hate his personality. He is just so annoying and useless. But I hate the cat too so they can both gth.
How? - MKBeast
I cracked up when I first saw him and Goku said "That's enough baby! " And I thought he was tired of not being able to kiss his ape crush and when I never saw baby I though he was a little girl. No wonder I thought that.. Lol
Baby is basically terrible, his existence mocks me. Even his name is pathetic.
. Hey dude shut up baby is not the worst buu sucks kid buu is cool but baby is my favorite but is baby should have been in dragon ball z
What?! Baby is an awesome villain. His saga is one of the best GT sagas. Shouldn't be on this list.
Got his arms cut off by Vegeta. - SelfDestruct
Android 19 ruined the entire cell arc. Great joy when vegeta blasted him to bits. Way worse than hercule
He sounds like a wind-up-baby toy.
His voice is something I just can't put up with.
She's annoying she hurt my ears.
She's like vegito but annoying - Dvafan2
How come people hate Kefla but not Caulifla? - Pan1234
Good thing vegeta killed Guldo he was a total wussy when he was fighting gohan and krillin
I was gonna put Frieza but this guy is pointless - ikerevievs
Guldo is okay but his powers aren't that good. Still, he is quite fast but Burter is faster. - SelfDestruct
TURLES THE BEST CHARACTER IN THE DRAGON BALL SERIES number 1 SAVAGE AND BOSS TURLES NO.2 SAVAGE AND BOSS GOKU BLACK AND NO.3 SAVAGE AND BOSS ZAMASU
A lot of people like to rip on Raditz for being one of the weakest dragon ball characters in general. At least HE actually came close to killing Goku. This saibamen wanna-be, Is like the black sheep of all the Dragon ball villains. I could win in a battle with Garlic Jr if I were to do so! For god sakes, Mr popo could totally obliterate him off the face of the planet if he wanted!
It was hilarious that Team Four Star had Mr Popo eat him!
BORING FILLER ARC.
AKA C-Jar JarPO
Not so great for a guy called "god". Especially in the Garlic Jr filler.
does nothing except give other fighters and eat senzu beans. He shows up to the battles to hide behind a rock and watch.
At least Yajirobe was able to defeat Cymbal, one of King Piccolo's sons.
Yajirobe is the worst character on this list. I mean, he's flat out useless
Lol he cut vegeta tail
See episode 35 whis says to beerus that stop hiding monaka true colors and beerus said that monaka is meditating so don't disturb him and he once destroyed a planet while mediating I think beerus fought monaka a long time ago and monaka was strongest at that time but after his sleep he fights Goku who surpassed monaka and he mistakenly said that monaka is strongest he was confused now piccolo forfeited natch only vegeta and Goku left from fighting
The ass is stronger than Goku and looks like a worthless... thing...
Not to mention his personality. - 8Gon_Soku8
WOW! I think its true because gojitaaf posted nearly the same and about monaka I ve just seen ep 35 and whis said that monaka nearly fainted when Goku uses kamehameha in first match and gojitaaf said hit will be more powerful than ssgss
thanks I m
Vegeta204btl forgot battle between vegeta and frost but lol vegeta wins with 1 punch
Just ugly and blaming,this is worse.
Well, Team Four Star couldn't fined much of a way to parody him other than turning him into a Chuck Norris Dark Lord.
People only hate him because no one is strong enough to beat him.
Popo means poo in Spanish, LOL - Yona_db
Just looking at him makes me sick enough said
He did nothing
He let Spopovich and Yamu steal Gohan's energy. Made the Z-Warriors hide behind the hills even after Dabura killed his Kibito then turned Piccolo and Krillin into stone for no real reason. Prevented Vegeta from blasting their way to the bottom of Babidi's Spaceship cause it MIGHT revive Majin Boo even though he knows Majin Boo needs 100% energy to be revived and even if it did he would be severely weakened thus easy for Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta to exterminate. Completely underestimated the Saiyans' powers and completely overestimated the enemies only realizing his mistake during his ass beating despite having several instances to put 2 and 2 together. He didn't warn Gohan of Boo's ability to absorb people... arguably his most deadly technique.
Without him the whole Saga wouldn't have happened at all. Sure he saved Gohan's life against Fat Boo but otherwise he might as well draw a M on his forehead and work for Babidi for all the "help" he was. - dhochoy
Because he would never give gohan the chance for the sword and make the hardest material in the universe so gohan could swing at it and break the sword also no vegito or ultimate gohan
If it wasn't for him gohan my overall favorite character wouldn't survive from majin buu
Supreme kai was awesome old and yong
He'll no! Take him off this list! he's my favorite villain with an amazing personality!
Zamasu is arguably one of the most developed villains in the franchise. A crazed villain who thinks justice involves wiping out everyone he sees as evil? It's an interesting motive done right. - MKBeast
Why is Zamasu on here? I mean, he's one of the best villains and he's gay for himself. Love yourself like Zamasu does
My god I hate this green ugly jerk he tried to kill all mortals just because he’s an insane anti-social punk who think his annoying crap he said or do is justice I wish he never knew about the earth dragon balls so they use them to wish he lost his powers and trunks kill the way he deserved
Nani zamsu did nothing wrong
This retard can go die in a ditch
