Top 100 Strongest Dragon Ball Characters

My picks for the top 100 strongest DB characters. Will not be using GT or hypothetical characters, and all the characters will be taken from when they were in their prime. Feedback is welcome.

List items

  • Strongest in the whole franchise so far. Has destroyed 6 universes in the past.

  • Attendant of the God of Destruction, Champa, and sister to Whis. Has trained Whis in the past, and says she's stronger.

  • Attendant of the God of Destruction, Beerus, and younger brother to Vados. Can knock out Beerus with one chop.

  • God of Destruction of Universe 7, and the second strongest in this universe.

  • Universe 6's God of Destruction. Twin brother to Beerus, and is implied to be weaker than him.

  • Champa's strongest fighter, the Legendary Assassin Hit was strong enough to combat SSB Goku in the manga, but he was still said to be holding back.

  • The protagonist of the series is right next to his rival, Vegeta. The manga does not make clear who is stronger, but the anime has Goku using his Kaioken, so I'll give Goku the lead.

  • The Saiyan Prince takes this spot for the reasons said in Goku's explanation.

  • The former emperor of the universe returned with his golden form, stronger than Super Saiyan Blue Goku. Now that Goku and Vegeta are stronger, he has fallen behind.

  • The metal man from Universe 6 gave Super Saiyan Vegeta a run for his money, and could've won if it weren't for Vegeta's insults.

  • This saiyan from Universe 6 was equal to Vegeta in base, and is most likely equal to Super Saiyan Vegeta in his own Super Saiyan state.

  • Universe 6's version of Freeza is trumped by the Super Saiyans in the tournament.

  • Somehow, this Namekian warrior has gotten strong enough to trade blows with Frost, as shown in the manga.

  • Botamo makes up for his lack of strength with his strange body.

  • The potara fusion of Goku and Vegeta easily fended off Boo with Gohan, Trunks, Goten and Piccolo absorbed. He is superior to his Dance counterpart, Gogeta.

  • Since Boo isn't separated, this is Boo with Gohan absorbed, who even said a Fusion Dance between Goku and Vegeta couldn't defeat him.

  • This monster easily defeated Ultimate Gohan and SSJ3 Gotenks before dying at the hands of Goku and his Dragon Fist.

  • In his Ultimate state, Gohan easily beat Super Boo, and had even surpassed SSJ3 Gotenks.

  • The fusion between Goten and Trunks was slightly stronger than Boo, thanks to his SSJ3 form.

  • (This is just regular SSJ Gogeta). As a Super Saiyan, Gogeta was needed to beat Janemba. He is slightly behind Gotenks, since Gotenks has SSJ3.

  • This monster beat SSJ3 Goku with some difficulty, requiring Gogeta to save the day.

  • In his Super Perfect form, Cell had nearly reached the strength of SSJ2 Gohan.

  • In his second movie, Broly was stronger than SSJ2 Gohan, but I peg him as slightly behind Cell.

  • While he was stronger than SSJ Gohan, he paled in comparison to SSJ2 Gohan.

  • Born to kill Saiyans, Hatchiyack had many forms, but they were all defeated by FPSSJ Goku.

  • After Kibito and the Supreme Kai fused, they became much more powerful than they individually were.

  • Powerful enough to one shot Cell with his Burning Shoot, and was ahead of Cell Games Goku

  • After enduring Freeza's training, Tagoma gained a huge boost, and SSJ Gohan (who was slightly weaker compared to his Z-Sword self) was needed to defeat him.

  • The King of the Demon Realm was powerful enough to make the Supreme Kai fear him. However, Dabura was slightly behind SSJ Gohan

  • Cell's children were even stronger than Cell Games Vegeta.

  • He was nothing in the anime, but in the movie, he was even with Piccolo, who constantly trains.

  • The Supreme Kai was even ahead of Piccolo in the Boo Saga, but he paled in comparison to the Super Saiyans.

  • Future Trunks was slightly behind a Cell Jr, and his present counterpart is slightly behind his future self.

  • The second son of Goku is immensely powerful for his age, being ahead of even Piccolo in the Boo Saga.

  • Strong enough to give SSJ Gohan some trouble when Bujin and Bido helped her.

  • Same as Zangya.

  • Same as Zangya.

  • Daizenshuu 7's character bio lists him as the strong mechanical android on the same page Super 13 is mentioned.

  • In his regular state, he is only slightly ahead of Android Saga Goku, but he easily beat the Super Saiyans and Kamiccolo as Super 13.

  • The fusion of Abo and Kado was tossed around by Base Gotenks.

  • Stronger than his sister, 18, and was equal with Kamiccolo.

  • Weaker than 17. She was stronger than the Android Saga Super Saiyans, but she is weaker than the Super Saiyan kids.

  • Was defeated by SSJ Vegeta, but nearly knocked him out of SSJ.

  • Shown to be even stronger than End of Z Base Goku.

  • Sliced in half by SSJ Trunks.

  • Freeza's brother had discovered a 5th form, and surpassed Freeza. He was defeated by an inexperienced SSJ Goku, so V-Jump's 470 mil power level doesn't make sense.

  • Dr. Gero himself was stronger than his creation, 19.

  • He was strong enough to survive blows from a sick SSJ Goku.

  • Babadi's henchman was slightly ahead of Boo Saga Base Goku.

  • Was said to be inferior to 100% Freeza by both the manga and the Daizenshuu.

  • Was ahead of Base Future Trunks, but paled in comparison to Trunks' SSJ form.

  • Supreme Kai's attendant was is stated to be even with Boo Saga Base Gohan by the Daizenshuu.

  • Was weaker than the Base Kids.

  • Same as Abo.

  • This evil Namekian was said to surpass Freeza and a Super Saiyan when he went giant. I'm assuming he surpassed first form Freeza and False SSJ Goku, which is the only SSJ we saw so far.

  • Garlic Jr. was doing quite well against Nail fused Piccolo.

  • The evil Saiyan was boosted greatly by 2 fruits, surpassing Kaioken x10 Goku, and needing a Spirit Bomb to be killed.

  • The leader of Cooler's Armored Squadron held his own against Nail fused Piccolo. V-Jump puts him at 170,000, but that's too low considering Piccolo is above 1 million at this point.

  • The non-canon special gives Bardock Super Saiyan. He was close to a power level of 10,000, so Super Saiyan puts him near 500,000.

  • Freeza's ancestor was greatly weaker than SSJ Bardock.

  • Stated to be the strongest human before Uub was introduced.

  • This earthly martial artist lags behind Krillin by only a bit, but he will probably surpass Krillin considering he trains day and night.

  • The leader of the Ginyu force has a power level of 120,000.

  • Weaker than Krillin and Tien, and now retired.

  • A prodigy Namekian warrior with a power level of 42,000. Most likely rivals Recoome, Burter and Jeice.

  • The Ginyu Force's Red Magma, about as strong as Recoome and Burter.

  • The Blue Hurricane is about as strong as Jeice and Recoome.

  • As strong as Jeice and Burter

  • Was overpowered by Goku's Kaioken x3 Kamehameha. He was, however, reported to be growing stronger before Goku used his Spirit Bomb.

  • In his monster form, he surpasses 30,000 by a bit. This is because Vegeta was close to 30,000, but thought he needed to surprise Zarbon in order to beat him.

  • Right behind Zarbon in terms of strength. The Daizenshuu lists him at 22,000.

  • Said to rival Saiyan Saga Vegeta, who was listed at 18,000.

  • His last recorded level was 610 against Nappa. There's no way to know his strength now, so I'm just guessing.

  • Part of Turles' Crusher Corps, with a power level of 13,000, listed by the Movie 3 pamphlet.

  • The strongest Saiyan during the time of Planet Vegeta's destruction.

  • Another member of Turles' Crusher Corps with a power level of 9,100 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Was significantly weaker than Krillin and Gohan, who were above 10,000, putting Guldo at beloe 10,000.

  • Power level of 8,400 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Power level of 8,000 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Twin of Rasin, with a power level of 7,600 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Power level of 7,500 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Power level of 7,000 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • The Daizenshuu may put him at 4,000, but that's too low considering he did too well against Goku.

  • Power level of 4,300 according to Movie 3's pamphlet.

  • Power level of 3,500 according to Movie 3's pamphlet, which works. He's stronger than King Yemma, but weaker than Nappa.

  • Vegeta's brother was exiled for not wanting to fight. It could be possible that he's just not as strong as the royal family wanted, so he can be above Raditz.

  • Weaker than King Kai, but above Raditz.

  • Strongest listed level was 180, but he took on Freeza soldiers who are most likely at 1,000.

  • He was originally thought to have a power level of 1,200, but the Daizenshuu lists him at 1,500.

  • Near even with Raditz, with a power level of 1,200.

  • V-Jump places him at 970, which works here.

  • The God of Earth was stronger than King Piccolo and Popo. His V-Jump level of 220 is too low for this.

  • Stated himself to be weaker than Kami, and V-Jump's power level of 1030 doesn't work with that statement.

  • The Daizenshuu lists him at 260.

  • Was stronger than Tien, who was at 180.

  • Korin's V-Jump level is 190. He said he was stronger than 22nd Budokai Goku, who was 180, so this works.

  • V-Jump puts him at 210, but Yamcha seemed to be stronger than him, so he should be lower.

  • Took out Krillin in the 22nd Budokai, but was weaker than Goku, who was at 180.

  • Fought post Korin Training Goku quite well.

  • V-Jump puts her at 130, which doesn't contradict anything.
