Famed Japanese manga artist and character designer Akira Toriyama gave a whole generation of young manga/anime fans one of the most iconic series to ever grace both mediums, Dragon Ball Z. The superheroic exploits of "Super Saiyans" and their fellow Earthling do-gooders have kept fans entertained for decades - watching the likes of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Trunks, and more reach new levels of unbelievable power just never seems to get old, especially when they unleash their newly acquired battle prowess against the likes of Frieza, Cell, Majin Buu, Broly, and more. It's easy to see all those names and christen any one of them as the most powerful Dragon Ball Z character.
As Toriyama expanded upon the DBZ universe with assorted films and the canonical follow-up series Dragon Ball Super, fans have been introduced to a wealth of brand-new mega-powered beings whose strength is usually on par with or higher than those of the DBZ's longtime saviors and villains. So with all that being said, a question must be asked - Who is the most powerful Dragon Ball Z character? We're going to attempt to answer that question with our own personal power ranking list of the top 14 DBZ and DBS characters with insane levels of power!
