36. King Cold (Didn’t Get The Chance To Transform Like Frieza)
We will explain King Cold’s 39th rank, he is the father of Frieza, and Frieza had three different transformations that boosted his power levels drastically. So, when Trunks killed King Cold after Frieza, he was in his base form and could be much stronger if he had the chance to transform.
35. Cell (Most Powerful Android)
The cell was the beast of all villains and the most fierce that Goku and his team had ever fought with. Cell saga was one of the longest and it completely tested every DBZ character’s strength.

However, Gohan rose out of his shell, and he powered up and defeated the Cell with ultimate Kamehameha.

Fat Buu was the first form of Pure Buu. He was the ultimate final villain of Dragon Ball Z. Fat Buu was not as evil as his final form, but he caused many deaths in the series and that raised the need for him to be defeated. After he gets overpowered by Gohan he explodes himself to take all of the fighters with him.
30. Trunks (From Future Timeline)
Future Trunks for sure is equal in terms of power levels to Goku in his SSJ3 form. In his timeline, he defeated Babidi, and Dabura, and eliminated the threat of Majin Buu.
29. Caulifla (Arrogant Saiyan)
Caulifla is a Saiyan from Universe 6. She can become a super Saiyan 2, that too after learning how to become one during the Tournament of Power from Goku. so, her power is only limited to being placed at 27th.
28. Super Buu (Evil Form)
Innocent Buu becomes Super Buu when he absorbs Dragon Ball Z characters. He became evil and evil and power-hungry as he absorbed them all. Super Buu’s best fight was with Vegito, he managed to handle both Goku and Vegeta in a single body.

Kid Buu was as strongest as Goku in SSJ3 form, he was pure evil that had a savage fighting style.

Dyspo is the Flash of Dragon Ball Super, his lightning speed stunned even Hit, a strongest fighter of Universe 6 who skips Time.

Dyspo gave a hard time to Frieza, Gohan, Hit and many more fighters.
25. Android 17 (Alpha Android)
Android 17, the winner of Tournament of Power, was the second-best human droid that Doctor Gero ever created. In Dragon Ball Super we all have seen the power-packed performance of 17. He can exchange blows with Goku in blue form and has defeated the most strongest characters from other Universes.
24. Orange Piccolo (After Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero)
Old Piccolo was not so strong enough to be placed in this position, but after the newest DB Super: Movie- SuperHero, he got a power upgrade from Shenron and became Orange Piccolo. Now, he is strongest enough to spar with Cell Max. And as per our expectation, now, Orange Piccolo can even spar head to head with Goku and Vegeta in the Blue form separately, Frieza in Golden Form, and many other strongest fighters.

22. Golden Frieza (the Most Despicable Villain of DBZ)
Frieza doesn’t need an introduction, he is the most despicable villain of all time. The Frieza saga was the one that started all the craziness in Dragon Ball Z. The impression of the audience towards Freiza was enough to sustain him in Dragon Ball Super also, with a dedicated saga called Resurrection F. Moreover, Frieza was shown as one of the pivot fighters of Universe 7 in the tournament of power.
21. Agnilasa (Scientific Beast From Universe 3)
Agnilasa or Aniraza, gigant humanoid, was the ace card of Universe 3 formed after the fusion of several members.

Lastly, they all attacked at once and defeated Universe 3
20. Zamasu (the Most Hideous character Of DBs)
Zamasu, as per my fans, was one of the most hated villains, even more than Frieza, of the Dragon Ball series and also one of the most strongest characters. His ways to defeat Goku and other Universes were intensely hideous. He became very strong in search of power. In the end, Zeno himself erased Zamasu after he absorbed the whole universe.
19. Goku Black (Zamasu In Goku’s Body)
Black Goku was a separate incarnation of Zamasu from his timeline that used Shenron’s power to switch bodies with Goku and when the body transfer was completed he killed Goku who was at that time in Zamasu’s body. His final goal was to destroy all the mortals along with Future Zamasu, his counterpart.
18. Toppo (Top 2nd Of Universe 7)
Toppo, the number two of Universe 7, and the most strongest warrior of Justice after Jiren. Also, to add more, Toppo has the power of God of destruction. However, In the tournament of power, Vegeta demonstrated a strongest act and even surpassed Toppo’s destructive powers and eliminated him.
17. Kefla (Fused Saiyan From Universe 6)
Kefla is incredibly the strongest fused Saiyan of Universe 6. She is the fusion of two female Saiyans, Kale and Caulifla. Kefla is extremely strongest, she was strong enough to take down Goku in SSJ Blue form. However, in the tournament, Goku finally blasted Kefla after transforming into Ultra Instinct Mode.
16. Gohan Beast (After Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero)
It was a bit difficult to rank Kefla and Ultimate Gohan, but after analysing the attributes of both we can say that Gohan can now defeat Kefla after he reached a new form- Gohan Beast in the movie ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’.
15. Vegeta (Proudest Saiyan Prince Warrior)
Vegeta, the Saiyan Prince, a rival of Goku, and the proudest warrior of Universe 7. He is one of the strongest characters in the Dragon Ball series. As he fought alongside Goku, his power levels reached new heights with every intense battle. His most recent form, which aired in a tournament of power, goes beyond SSJ Blue Form. Now fans are expecting a new form of Vegeta called Ultra Ego to air soon. Ultra Ego is going to be epic, Vegeta will break all his limits and be stretched to the edge to achieve it.
14. Broly (Uncontrollable Saiyan Beast)
Broly is unstable, he cannot be tamed by anyone. Just like Goku and Vegeta, Broly is also a survivor of Planet Vegeta, home to saiyans. This original character of Dragon Ball was again revived in the movie: Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
13. Hit (Feared Assassin In Dragon Ball Super)
Hit is one of the strongest characters who debuted in Dragon Ball Super, he is not a warrior but even more dangerous, an assassin. He has gone head-to-head with Goku SSJ Blue form with Kaioken x20. We have placed Hit at 11th place because if he just wants to kill then no one can stop him.
12. Jiren (A Mortal Stronger Than Gods)
Jiren is the strongest warrior of Universe 11, and a mortal who is even stronger than a God of Destruction. His first appearance was revealed at the beginning of Tournament of Power. Goku was a little bit excited and frightened at the same time after meeting him. At the end of the tournament, he was the only one left to take down Goku and his team. Also, the need to beat Jiren pushed Goku to unlock Ultra Instinct.
11. Goku (Legend, Hero, & Saviour of Dragon Ball Series)
Goku made our childhood awesome. He was never the strongest, but his indestructible will to become the strongest pushed him to where he is now, among GODs. Goku’s Ultra Instinct form makes him strong enough to be on this list as number 10. But we all know the dude will get much stronger than he already is, and he is never going to stop. Moreover, now Goku is in God league, and most probably he is going to become one himself, expectedly.
10. Vegito (Fused Goku and Vegeta Through Portara)
Vegito is the fusion of two legendary Saiyans, Goku and Vegeta. So you can understand how strongest they can be. In any Dragon Ball episode, Vegito’s full power has never been revealed. This character overpowers every villain, so the fans have never seen what Vegito can do in a life-or-death situation. But, surely, he is weaker than Gogeta because his form can last only up to 10-15 mins and Gogeta can last for half an hour.
9. Gogeta (Fused Goku and Vegeta Through Fusion Dance)
Gogeta and Vegito both are different forms of fused Saiyans, born when Goku and Vegito become one. But, if it has to be decided, then Gogeta is much stronger than Vegito. Because Gogeta’s form can last much longer than Vegito and it does even need the earrings to be fused. Just like Vegito, Gogeta also has never been seen in much trouble while battling his opponents. He surely is one of the most strongest dragon ball characters.
8. Champa (God of Destruction From Universe 6)
Champ is the brother of Lord Beerus, but we suspect that he is a lot weaker than him. But weak or not he is the God of Destruction and deserves to be in the seventh spot.
7. Belmod (God of Destruction From Universe 11)
Belmod, another God of Destruction from Universe 11. His powers besides the ‘Hakai’ are not yet revealed, but he sure looks serious. Jiren is from his Universe, so it’s expected that he will be much stronger.
6. Lord Beerus (God of Destruction From Universe 7)
Lord Beerus, the fierce destroyer from Universe 7, Goku’s universe. It’s suspected that he is not only one of the most strongest dragon ball characters but also the most strongest God of Destruction.
5. Whis (Angel of Universe 7)
Whis is surely one of the most strongest characters of Dragon Ball. He is angel assigned to assist Lord Beerus. As he is stronger than him, Whis trains Lord Beerus and keeps him in line by not letting the other planets get destroyed easily. Whis has incredible abilities, he is almost magical. Travelling faster than the speed of light, rewinding time, etc are a few of these capabilities.
4. Angels (Guides For Destroyers)
Just like Whis, as an angel, is assigned to the destroyer of Universe 7, every other Universe has its angel chosen to serve the destroyers. These Angels have crazy abilities, they guide the Gods of Destruction to master their powers and assist them as personal attendants.
3. Daishinkan (Father of Angels)
Daishinkan is one of the mysterious characters of Dragon Ball Super, he is the father, leader and guide for all the Angels. His powers are still unknown, but it is sure that he has crazy abilities, a whole new form of powers that are yet to be revealed late in the show.
2. Attendants Of Zen-Oh (Bodyguards)
Attendants of Zen-oh Sama, are the bodyguards of mighty Zeno. Not much is known about them. Their power levels are still unknown and they haven’t uttered even a single word since the start of the series.
1. Zen-Oh: The Omni King (Supreme Being)
Zeno-Oh Zama or The Omni King is the supreme being, God of all the Universes and destroyer of all. Irrespective of his status he is always eager to be friends with Goku. He can be as funny as he can and as angry as a God can get in an instant. Ultimately, he was and is the most strongest characters of Dragon Ball Super, but it’s still a question that if he will remain be the most overpowered or someone will take over in coming seasons.
