There’s no doubt in our mind that Akira Toriyama knew what he was doing when he created one of the greatest pioneering anime titles of all time! Dragon Ball Z is a classic among 90’s kids as it was all the rage back then, and still is today with the arrival of Dragon Ball Super. Throughout the Z series there have been a lot of great battles both nostalgic, and epic. This filler post contains ten of the most amazing battles that fans (like ourselves) remember from such a memorable series. Enjoy! 🙂
Number 10: Goku & Piccolo vs. Raditz
If you’re a DBZ fan, then this is one battle that we’re all familiar with. Raditz was the first saiyan to ever invade earth, so it’s only nostalgic that we have this battle as #10 on our Top Ten list!
Number 9: Vegeta vs. Zarbon
You guys remember this fight, right? Imagine what life would be like if Zarbon were still alive and still in his ‘pretty’ form throughout Dragon Ball Super…?
Number 8: Goku vs. Lord Slug
If you thought Piccolo was the only Super Namekian, then you might wanna look at this clip and think again! Will Goku’s Kiao-Ken (handed down to him from King Kai) be enough to take down the dreaded Lord Slug?
Number 7: Vegeta, Krillin & Gohan vs. Recoome
Ah, the Ginyu Force. These lovable idiots are just as powerful as they are corny. Wouldn’t be funny to see Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta fight against Recoome now? Yikes! >.<
Number 6: Piccolo vs. Android 17
Even though this was just a battle to stall for time, the match up itself was pretty entertaining. Piccolo shows 17 what he’s made of – right before Cell finds them…
Number 5: Vegeta vs. Android 19
Ah, yes. The first time the Prince of all Saiyans turned into the very thing that he was obsessed with – a Super Saiyan. Watch him wail on 19 like there’s no tomorrow, in all of his Super Saiyan glory!
Number 4: Goku vs. Janemba
Freak accidents happen, but this one could cost the whole world. See what happens when Goku makes his way down to HFIL, to take care of a supernatural problem.
Number 3: Gohan vs. Cell
This battle just had to be in the top three. Gohan goes to the next level of Super Saiyan in order to take down Dr. Gero’s most dangerous android – Cell. Guess it’s true what they say, like father…like son.
Number 2: Goku vs. Freiza
This is one of the most memorable battles of the DBZ universe. The mighty tyrant Frieza taking on the golden haired savior of the Earth, Goku, in an epic battle to keep the planet he loves safe from evil extraterrestrials like him.
And Finally Number 1: Goku vs. Vegeta
Before Lord Beerus, before Buu, before Cell, and even before Frieza, there was the greatest battle/rivalry to ever happen in the history of DBZ. (Next to Piccolo.) Vegeta was a ruthless saiyan with high level combat skills with an ego to match. Goku was the ‘Average Joe’ with a heart for others, and loved to fight against powerful opponents. Both saiyans have a history with one another as well as a rivalry, although in the Super Era Goku and Vegeta are kinda like brothers/frienemies.
