    Raditz didn't make the list?!

      Raditz may be generic to a comedic extreme even by Dragon Ball standards, a total let down for how long he lasted, and so forgettable that he wasn't mentioned in the Bardock special and Akira Toriyma might've actually forgotten him, but...Actually I lost the point that I was trying to make. Good point about him not getting mentioned.

    There are a lot of bad characters that you glossed over just to include our lord and savior, Mr. Satan.  There was a lot of terrible characters in the original DB series.

    I got to number eight and lost interest...I normally don't lose interest in these top ten countdowns, small disagreements sure but interest?

    I dont know what a Yamcha is, but it sounds disappointing.

    How do you not include the smelly homeless man Krillin defeated at his first world martial arts tournament, Bacterian? His main fighting tactic is to hinder his opponent with body odor so bad that most opponents would be forced to fight with one hand to pinch their own nose closed. His big attack is literally him wiping his hand on his ass and touching his foe. The main reason why he lost is because Krillin realized he was actually born without a nose. And yes, this is cannon from Dragonball.

    Got to say, I don't adult Gohan was THAT bad. I know that they were building up to possibly surpass his father but he... he always kind of sucked. Sure, he was stronger than Goku when he was young Gohan's age, but he was never strong enough to do much. The only times he came through was against Vegeta (via Great Ape transformation and Vegeta already being greatly hurt and exhausted) and Cell (by being pushed into Super Saiyan Two in first fight and the assistance of his father's ghost and Vegita hitting Cell hard enough in the second fight). Team Four Star made a joke in one of their DragonBall Abridge episodes, after Guru unlocked Gohan's hidden power:


    -Gohan: With this power up, I'm now as strong as you were when we fought on Earth

    -Vegeta: Congratulations! You're still weaker than the last 3 guys I killed.


    So yeah, he always kind of sucked.

      Couple things. When Gohan was just a few years old managed to do actual damage against Raditz when both Piccolo and Goku could barely touch him and were getting their ass beat. Gohan's hit against Raditz and distraction was what allowed Goku to get a second wind and set up the attack Piccolo did that killed Raditz (and Goku). 


      The ape transformation was still a win for Gohan and was one of the main contributing factors to Vegeta's eventual defeat. 


      Gohan managed to do major damage against both Frieza's second and third forms when no other Z fighter could get close to that before Goku showed up.


      And of course Gohan beat Cell when Goku could not.


      So you say he "always sucked" but considering he was pretty essential in the first 4 biggest story arcs of the DBZ would argue otherwise. He was more capable than every Z fighter except Goku from a consistency standpoint (with far less deaths, none).


      Point of the video still stands. His potential after up to the conclusion of the Cell saga was very squandered. My guess is the other writers and executives behind the DBZ franchise didn't like Gohan as much as Akira Toriyama did and they're the reasons why his character was neutered as badly as he was.

      I agree that they should've done bone more with him after Cell, but I can't help but remember all the times he needed saving, namely by Piccolo. Besides, his character was always more a nerd than a fighter. Unlike Goku, he disdains fighting and rarely trains.

    GT ruins all of the characters.

    The following is not exactly a defense of anyone on this list, just a few comments for each guy: 

    10. Garlic Jr is non-canon, his movie wasn't part of the series (those terrible filler episodes don't count).

    9. You guys practically stole those jokes from TFS.

    8. Come on, he's fun. (One of the few defenses on the list)

    7. Huh, thought this one would be higher on the list. Entirely agree otherwise.

    6. This one is mostly based on wasted potential, like all of GT.

    5. Ehh, see 6. Let's hope Super does her better.

    4. This one can be blamed on the times moving on without him.

    3. Wow, GT was actually DUMBER than I remember.

    2. Once again, agreed.

    1. The fans wanted more Goku. Plus, I don't think it's that bad (The only other defense on this list).

    Secret 11. You forgot that she looked exactly like Bulma.

      Garlic Jr's movie can be fit into the series with VERY little story modification.

    I find myself unable to disagree with anyone on this list, but at least Yamcha didn't make number one, because they would've just sucked for him (I admit I had almost half expected him to be among the top three).

    This comment made by Nick really irked me - "You watch a show like Dragon Ball because you want to see awesome fights.Anything that tries to accomplish the opposite is just getting in the way". Dragon Ball charcters, their interactions and even the Toriyama style comedy i mean it's not just about the fights. I utterly hate when pepole say Dragon Ball is primary about the fights - it's about the adventure.

    i agree that gohan losing his momentum as he became older is definitely disappointing but now in dragon ball super he's starting to become awesome again which i think is a massive relief because gohan deserves to be awesome again

      Those episodes are only subbed as far as I can tell.

      They didn't include Super in this list for 'worst' for any new characters, so I'm guessing they aren't including any improvements to the characters on this list as well.

         If Broly isn't in the top three you might be doing it wrong.

      The only real problem with Broly is the fact that he got more than 1 movie. Overhyped, yes, but you still got some awesome fights out of the psychotic bastard.

      Broly was straight up terrifying. He literally made Vegeta fall to his knees in fear, and the only reason he didn't finish pulling Trunks apart limb from limb is because Trunks pissed himself all over Broly. This guy was going to draw and quarter a child with his bare hands.
