Top 10 Strongest 'Dragon Ball' Characters

The strongest 'Dragon Ball' characters make us quiver in fear—any power levels under 9000 don't stand a chance.

We are so over 9000 by this point! Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the "Top 10 Strongest Dragon Ball Characters."

For this list, we’re going to be looking at the most devastatingly strong characters from across the Dragon Ball franchise. As such, prepare for a lot of newcomers from Super to make their debut.

We’re talking pure power levels here people, as such we’ll be looking at characters who may not have ended any planets on screen but are still infamous for their destructive capabilities. However, given how we don’t exactly know how they rank compared to Beerus and Whis, we won’t be including any of the other Gods of Destructions or Angels. Finally, don’t expect to see Broly on this list, since we’ll have to wait for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super film to see just how strong his revamped character has become.

#10: Toppo

This combatant of Universe 11 might have appeared to be a throwaway character at first since his whole shtick appeared to revolve around talking about justice. Little did we know there was a beast lurking beneath the surface, which he finally unleashed during the final stages of the Tournament of Power. As it happened, Toppo was a candidate to become a future God of Destruction, a fact he was more than happy to demonstrate by crippling Frieza and nearly vaporizing the Saiyan Prince with his mastery of Hakai.

#9: Fusion Zamasu

The jealous Kai that brought the future to its knees. If it wasn’t bad enough for Goku and the gang dealing with both Goku Black and Zamasu, things got even worse once they fused to become this divine being. Believing in nothing but his own twisted justice, Zamasu easily overwhelms both Goku and Vegeta. And despite this new form being unstable, his strength can’t be discounted, since he managed to fight Super Saiyan Blue Vegito to a standstill!

#8: Vegeta

The Prince of all Saiyans sure has come a long way. While he’s still one step behind Goku, Vegeta has still proven himself to be a warrior worthy of both fear and respect. While Dragon Ball Super went to great lengths to show how he had fully made the transition to family man, it also showed that he’s stronger than ever. Tapping into a new power that goes beyond Super Saiyan Blue, Vegeta went beyond his limits in the Tournament of Power, showing that his precious pride was powerful enough to even overcome a wannabe God of Destruction.

#7: Beerus

The being that first expanded Goku’s horizons. This God of Destruction didn’t only clue fans into the existence of multiple universes, but also proved to be a deadly foe in his own right. Even with the power of a Super Saiyan God, the only reason that our favourite Saiyan (as well as the rest of the planet) still exists is due to Beerus finding enjoyment in the Earth’s culinary delights. While he’s certainly mellowed into a more laxed feline, that’s not to say Beerus hasn’t done his fair amount of destroying. Eliminating Zamasu, blowing up half of an alien world with a finger tap, this kitty is not one to be trifled with. 

#6: Vegito

Fans had been clamoring for Vegito’s return for many years, and even though it was brief it certainly did not disappoint. Stated by the Supreme Kai to have powers that exceed even those of Beerus, Vegito takes full advantage of his Super Saiyan Blue form and manages to completely overwhelm the immortal fused Zamasu. Sadly Vegito was so strong that he was not able to maintain the Potara fusion for long. We can only imagine how strong Vegito would be now if Goku and Vegeta fused post-Tournament of Power…. Obviously they’d be much higher on this list.

#5: Jiren

Universe 11’s strongest warrior, a fighter of such overwhelming spirit that it took the combined might of both Goku and Frieza in order to defeat him, which they barely pulled off might we add. He took out participants left and right during the Tournament of Power, including Vegeta, without so much as breaking a sweat. In fact, it took Goku unlocking the ungodly power of Ultra Instinct just to reclaim the edge in battle. While he may have lost in the end, we have no doubt that the next time we see Jiren his power level is going to be twice as staggering. 

#4: Goku

From the very first time we saw him unleash the Kamehameha, this Saiyan managed to cement himself as one of the greatest shounen heroes to ever exist, and has only gotten more awesome with time. Following the events of Super, not only has Goku pioneered several new forms (including Super Saiyan Blue) but has recently slipped into the realms of divinity thanks to the unmatched force of Ultra Instinct, which tipped the scales in Goku’s favour dramatically against Jiren, but also made all the gathered Gods of Destruction shake with fear. He may still have a ways to go, but we all know that it’s not a matter of if Goku can become the single strongest being in existence…but when. 

#3: Whis

Elegant, sassy, and highly knowledgeable, many of mistook this Angel as Beerus’ servant; the one being capable of keeping his temper in check. We couldn’t have been further from the truth. In actuality, Whis was Beerus’ teacher, one who eclipsed him in both strength and mentality. This was proven when he easily defeated a combined assault by Goku and Vegeta with seemingly zero effort. Oh, and that one time he managed to reset time with just a click of his staff. While we still don’t know where he stands in comparison with the rest his siblings, we’re going to go out on a limb and say he’s near the top. 

#2: Grand Minister

Say hello to El Grande Padre. Yep, this close confidant of Zeno’s is also Whis’ father. In fact, he’s also the father of all the universes’ angels. Sheesh, his poor wife. As you can expect, the Grand Minister’s strength is unquestionable, and while we’ve never actually seen him fight, they’ve made damn sure to let us know just how strong this guy really is. Like constantly. Crossing through the multi-verse instantly, deflecting all manner of devastation without even raising a hand, able to locate any and all souls no matter which universe they’re hiding in, we can only imagine how scary it would be if he decided to discipline any of his children.

#1: Zeno

He may look cute, he may sound naïve, but make no mistake; this little jellybean is the most powerful being that has ever existed, and probably ever will be. The fact that the Gods of Destruction tremble before his tiny frame certainly speaks volumes, but what really seals the deal is the fact that this little guy can erase entire universes and timelines with a wave of his finger, something that he repeatedly demonstrated throughout the Tournament of Power. Turns out creation and destruction share one face, and it’s adorable.
