Hi guys! Today I will talk about the 10 strongest Dragon Ball Z characters. Now, this is going to be hard and I must set some rules.
Even with the rules some of you will disagree, but if I set no rules it will be total chaos. So, these are the rules:
- The list is strictly for Dragon Ball Z characters, meaning that I am considering for this list all the characters that exist in the Dragon Ball Z anime and are canon. The characters in filler episodes (cough… Pikkon), and in movies aren’t on this list because they aren’t canon.
- Dragon Ball Super characters aren’t included even if Dragon Ball Super takes place before the end of Dragon Ball Z. I will make a separate list for the top 10 strongest characters in Dragon Ball Super. That means that Battle of Gods, and Resurrection of F movies don’t count as well.
- I will only put each character one time on this list, because if I put all the transformations and forms of Buu, half the list will include Buu, so I will only put the strongest form of Buu, meaning Buu (Gohan Absorbed).
Now that I made everything clear let’s begin.

10. Android 18
I know that many will disagree whether Android 18 is stronger than Piccolo especially since we don’t consider Dragon Ball Super in this list.
Android 18 is equal to Piccolo in strength, and we know that because in their fight they were completely equal in strength, but if you take into consideration that Android 18 has unlimited energy, meaning that he doesn’t get tired, if they fight, at some point Piccolo will get tired and lose while Android 18 doesn’t have to worry about stamina.
That is the only reason Android 18 is above Piccolo in this list. Plus, Piccolo didn’t fight anyone in Buu Saga, so even if he got stronger we can’t know how much stronger he got.
9. Future Trunks
Future Trunks is one of the most popular characters in the series and he became a lot stronger since we were first introduced to him.
He definitely deserves a spot in the top 10 list, but there characters a lot stronger than him in this list.
Now Dabura is definitely at the level of Cell, but if they fought each other I believe Cell would win thanks to his regeneration.
Dabura could be stronger than Cell, but we don’t have enough information to clearly tell who is the strongest.
Cell in his Super Perfect Form never fought Gohan 1vs1 and we can’t know how he compares to Super Saiyan 2 Gohan.
Gohan won with the help of his friends, but he was injured since he protected Vegeta.
He may be stronger than Cell in his Super Perfect Form, but maybe Cell is stronger instead, so I will presume based on this limited data that Super Perfect Cell is stronger than Dabura.
7. Super Perfect Cell
Cell in his Ultimate Form is close to Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, but we can’t know if he is stronger or not.
The only thing that we know for sure is that he deserves a spot in the top 10 list of the strongest Dragon Ball Z characters.
Vegeta is clearly stronger than Cell in Buu Saga since he unlocked his Super Saiyan 2 form and he trained hard in the 7-year time skip.
He gave a better fight against Fat Buu than Dabura, who got stomped in 2 minutes. He is certainly stronger than Gohan in Cell Saga.
I included fused forms in this list because they are transformations of a single person like the Super Saiyan.
Gotenks is a completely different being than Goten or Trunks. Gotenks managed to turn into Super Saiyan 3 at such a young age and went toe to toe with Buu.
Now we don’t know if he could beat Buu alone, but he is certainly close to Buu’s level of power.
4. Mystic Gohan
Now here’s where it gets tricky.
Mystic Gohan may be stronger than Super Saiyan 3 Goku, but it depends on which Super Saiyan 3 Goku we are talking about.
If we talk about Super Saiyan 3 Goku in the Buu Saga, then he is stronger, but if we talk about Goku after the time skip where he continued training and probably improved his mastery upon Super Saiyan 3, then Goku is probably stronger, especially since Gohan stopped training after the Buu Saga.
So, by the end of the Dragon Ball manga, Goku has surpassed Gohan, that’s a fact and that is why Goku is in the number 3 spot instead.
Goku is one of the strongest characters in Dragon Ball Z, and he managed to do that through sheer training and effort and certainly deserves a spot in the top 3 strongest characters in Dragon Ball Z.
As I mentioned before, he surpassed Gohan by the end of the manga because he kept training, while Gohan gave up on fighting.
2. Buu (Gohan Absorbed)
Buu when he absorbed Gohan was at his strongest. Kid Buu wasn’t stronger than Buu (Gohan Absorbed) since it’s completely absurd to assume that.
He would be at the number 1 spot if it wasn’t for Vegito who is the strongest being in Dragon Ball Z.
Vegito is the strongest character in Dragon Ball Z by far.
He toyed with Buu in his strongest state. If he wanted to, he could wipe him out of existence.
The only reason he didn’t is that he had to free Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Piccolo that were trapped inside him.
He had no trouble against Buu and he is the clear number 1 of this list.
That’s it for my list guys, I hope you liked it. If you disagree with any part of this list, please write a comment below. See ya in the next article.
