TOP 10 Most Powerful Characters – Dragon Ball


Dragon Ball Z is the second episode of the Dragon Ball franchise. It tells the adventures of Son Goku and his companions as they defend the Earth against a multitude of hostile armies. This story has many powerful enemies who are trying to destroy the safety of the Earth. Therefore, our heroes must have comparable power and strength.

So we became curious to know who are the toughest fighters in the Dragon Ball Z saga. Here is a ranking of the ten strongest characters in Dragon Ball Z!

Note: Only Dragon Ball Z characters are included in this list, so we only consider characters from seasons 1-9 of the TV anime series and movies. This list also includes only unique individuals, so characters from mergers like Gotenks, Gogeta and Vegeto are not included.

Evil Boo created this deadly form of Boo by consuming Good Boo. This character is incredibly powerful and has a strong personality. This version of Boo gets frustrated pretty quickly. His fury is so powerful that he can reportedly tear through dimensional walls with his anger.

In addition, Super Boo’s ability to absorb others makes him extremely dangerous. He has even been able to absorb Gotenks (a fusion of Gohan and Trunk), Piccolo, and Gohan Ultimate. Of course, Super Boo is no danger to Vegeta or Goku in Blue Super Saiyan. But at the time, Super Boo was a formidable opponent that could only be defeated by Vegeto, the fused form of Goku and Vegeta.



Gohan is the eldest son of Goku, and is expected to surpass his father. Gohan demonstrated his potential in the Perfect Cell saga by becoming Super Saiyan 2, which is remarkable because he was the first to do so at that point in the series. During the Majin Buu arc, old Kai helped Gohan reach his true potential by releasing this energy. Gohan can quickly reach the Super Saiyan 3 level by using this power.

He could also have avoided Gohan’s tail attack if he had thought of trying Super Saiyan 2. Moreover, even if he didn’t succeed in this change, he already had a huge amount of power with his Ultimate Gohan form. This incredible strength is such that he can even intimidate Super Boo – one of the deadliest opponents in Dragon Ball Z.



Kid Boo is the main antagonist of the Kid Boo saga and, without a doubt, one of the most dangerous enemies of Goku. Kid Boo has a very juvenile personality, as evidenced by his name. He seems to be spoiled rotten, but he is in fact much worse than that.

As a small child, Kid Boo’s vocabulary was limited to words like “Me Boo, kill yourself!” He may seem like a brat, but he’s not. In reality, Kid Buu is the most powerful, pure and darkest incarnation of Buu. His insane temper and bloodthirsty desire for destruction have made him one of Goku’s deadliest enemies.



It was once a monument to a demon god who purified the inhabitants of the planet from the hearts of Konat. Hirudegarn was corrupted by Kashvarian mages later in Dragon Ball Z Wrath of the Dragon and became one of the main antagonists. Hirudegarn is a terrifying monster who has only one goal in life: to destroy everything in his path. He is, in a way, a true destroyer with no feelings, guilt or repentance.

Hirudegarn is an extremely strong colossus who has transformed himself many times. He was able to defeat Gotenks in Super Saiyan 2 effortlessly with his ultimate shape-shifting. Hirudegarn’s assault was only slightly delayed when Gotenks Super Saiyan 3 unleashed his continuous dice missile on him. Finally, it took the legendary Goku Super Saiyan 3 to finish Hirudegarn off with his most powerful attack: The Dragon Fist.



The main antagonist of Dragon Ball Z Fusion Reborn is Janemba. From the outside, Janemba has the appearance of an obese yellow monster with strange holes on his shoulders and stomach. He is, in reality, a true evil being, a malevolent entity that can surpass Goku and Vegeta’s Super Saiyan 3 form.

When his first form was put to the test, it was easily destroyed by the SSJ3 form. However, when he transformed into his second form, he became quite resistant. In this one, his body transformed into a human figure with red skin and purple armor. His power also increased dramatically, so much so that Goku and Vegeta’s level 3 Super Saiyan combination was unable to defeat him. To defeat him, Goku and Vegeta had to combine into Gogeta.



The Freezer is a recurring antagonist of the Dragon Ball Z anime series. He is known as the ruler of the worlds and an eternal enemy of Goku. He was defeated by Goku, then cut into pieces by Trunks from the future. However, in Dragon Ball Z Resurrection F, this terrible individual has returned as a more powerful and malevolent opponent than ever.

Freezer was resurrected by the power of the Dragon Balls after his defeat of Trunks from the Future, thanks to the efforts of his lackeys. He now knows that his fatal opponent, Son Goku, has accomplished several goals and gained even greater strength, and he understands that he will need much more power.

He trained for the first time in his life with the goal of defeating Goku. Finally, it was time for Freezer to achieve even greater strength with his ultimate change: Golden Freezer. This form could even match Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue in terms of power.

At the end of Dragon Ball Z Resurrection of F, Freezer was finally defeated by the Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. This forced Freezer to wipe out the entire planet. Earth, as well as Vegeta, would never have survived without Whis’ time travel energy.



Vegeta was originally portrayed as the Prince of the Saiyan, a malevolent monster who sought world domination. He was extremely vain and sure of his power, until Goku defeated him and Vegeta became Goku’s opponent. To surpass Goku, he trained constantly, unlocking the Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2 states. However, while Goku was using it, he could not reach the Super Saiyan 3 form.

Nevertheless, Vegeta was able to reach Blue Super Saiyan and fight alongside the previously shown Golden Freezer. He even surpassed Golden Freezer, forcing him to destroy the entire planet. Nevertheless, Vegeta was a formidable fighter when he teamed up with Goku, and thanks to their fusion forms, they were able to fight many dangerous monsters.



Goku is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball Z franchise, and he is undoubtedly the most powerful mortal hero in Dragon Ball Z (except for fusion forms like Vegeto or Gogeta). In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, he was probably the first living Saiyan to reach several Super Saiyan levels, including Blue Super Saiyan. 

Son Goku is a typical good guy who has no selfish desire for power, domination or money. His main goal is to master the martial arts and defend the planet when the time comes.

Goku has faced a number of powerful enemies throughout the series, and he has proven to be very resourceful. With his signature “Kamehameha” and his double-edged “Kaioken” technique, Goku can fight one-on-one with almost any character in Dragon Ball Z. Therefore, he should be ranked third on this list.



The Egyptian feline being known as Beerus is a creature that frequently wears Egyptian-themed clothing. He may look small, but don’t let his appearance alone. He is actually a god of destruction of the universe 7, charged with razing any planet that jeopardizes the balance of the universe.

As the God of Destruction, Beerus is immensely powerful and strong (he can destroy a planet quickly), and so far it seems that he can effortlessly eliminate all of the characters in Dragon Ball Z, except for Whis, his mentor.

In Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods, Beerus awakens from his slumber and seeks a new fighter to challenge Freezer. Finally, Beerus discovers Goku and puts him to the test of combat. Meanwhile, Goku tries to train with Beerus at Super Saiyan 3 level, but fails miserably.

Later, after reaching the power of the Super Saiyan God, Goku faces Beerus once again. Despite the fact that Goku could endure longer in this fight, he could not defeat the god of destruction. Nevertheless, Beerus was satisfied with his fight against Goku and decided to spare the Earth from devastation.



Whis is a powerful martial arts master who acts as a mentor to Beerus, although we don’t know much about his personal history. Other than that, the full truth about Whis’ power has never been revealed, but so far he seems to be the most powerful character in Dragon Ball Z. In Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods, Beerus said that Goku was only the runner-up of his previous opponents. Considering this, the greatest opponent Beerus has faced is definitely Whis.

Whis has the ability to reverse time and seems to have exceptionally fast speed. He even has the power to turn back time, as seen in Dragon Ball Z: The Resurrection of F, when he brings Goku and his friends back three minutes before Freezer’s destruction of Earth. This allowed Goku to deliver a deadly Kamehameha against his opponent, who managed to prevent him from destroying the planet.

In Dragon Ball Super, we have yet to see the full power of Whis, but there is no doubt that Whis is one of the most powerful characters in the series. This list is coming to an end!
