Subject: Favorite Dragon Ball Z Character?

Written By: ocarinafan96 on 11/27/15 at 7:17 pm

For those of you who were fans of the show back on Toonami in the 00's (or on the original run in the 90's) who was your favorite character on the show and why?

For me I would have to go with Gohan since I always respected his view of fighting, only deciding to fight as a last resort and being more focused on saving the planet rather than getting stronger for personal benefit. Also he's a freaking bad ass
during the Cell Games Saga and the Majin Buu Saga  :D

I'm starting to lean towards the antagonists. I wish Turles and Cooler were in the main story.

Yeah they were pretty awesome characters, especially Turles who IMO seemed much more bad ass than Raditz. This why I always felt that Turles should of been the one to inform Goku that he was a Saiyan and have Goku fight off with Turles rather than Raditz, he just always seemed lame to me  8-P

Yeah even though I thought Raditz had a GREAT voice. Turles was much more badass and cooler ;) !

Raditz just tries to hard.

Turles being more interesting does it for me.

This.

BTW, what were some of your other favorite DB/Z villains?

For me it would be a close tie between Frieza or Piccolo Jr.  (during Dragon Ball, before he teamed up with Goku)

Honorable Mentions:


Red Ribbon Army

Dr. Gero

Cell

Kid Buu

It used to be Broly until I realized how overrated he is. Broly's backstory adds debt to his character, but still lack personality. I think Cell is a better villain then Frieza. His character is complex while Frieza is typical. Kid Buu is actually just chaos.

I see, yeah Broly while awesome I do agree is slightly overrated.

I personally wasn't a huge fan of Cell though, he always just seemed dull, but hey thats just me!

Frieza, while generic, was probably my favorite because as a kid he felt the most menacing. When he impaled and killed Krillin, killed the hundreds of Namekians, and the epic clash between Goku and Frieza were certainly very memorable. I also weirdly found his backstory pretty interesting and it made me hate and sort of like Frieza at the same time. Its a weird emotion I know

About Kidd Buu, yeah he was chaotic but it made the character pretty memorable. Though I see where you're coming from

Yeah Kid Buu is the most dangerous villain in DBZ history, Freeza is the most ruthless and cold hearted villain in the series, while Cell is the most complex and mysterious villain in the series,and Super Buu with Gohan aboserbed was the overall strongest.

Frieza has that charm for sure. Kid Buu is memorable. I just like my villains with actual personalities. Kid Buu is like a entity.

Now Dr. Gero is interesting. If I had the chance, I would ask him questions.

Basically, the ruthless and cold hearted tags can apply to Frieza and Kid Buu.

Yep Frieza and Buu were very memorable. However I agree, Dr Gero is definitely very interesting because he's one of the few villains in the series that ALMOST by the hair actually completed his objective, killing Goku and destroying the world with the help of the Androids and Cell of course. Also the Red Ribbon Army in general was just very complex if you think about it

Man its cool to see an anime fan, let alone a DBZ fan that's a woman! 8)  When I was a little boy there weren't too many girls that were into anime when I was in school,Katana Queen (a fellow member here) is also a fan!

Most of the girls who were into Toonami would watch it only for Sailor Moon or Powerpuff Girls. Which was throughout the TOM 1 and early TOM 2 era. However, I'm happy to see there was a girl who enjoyed DBZ as well!

For me the answer is easy: Piccolo. His transformation over the show from villain to hero (all the while keeping his badass personality intact) was pretty awesome.

It's interesting that Goku was always by far the strongest fighter on the show, but every kid when I was growing up always preferred either Vegeta or Piccolo. I guess it goes to show that attitude actually does trump power sometimes.

I had to awakened this thread to show my appreciation for Paragus. By far, Paragus is the most interesting character in all of DBZ in my perspective. Dude would have definitely bought a interesting twist to DBZ's canon. Beerus has some interesting qualities. Just that, he's still expected.

I'll agree that Vegeta and Piccolo has that mystery aura to them as if they could turn on the world at any time. When I look at both, I see history. While I just see determination when I see Goku.
