Author Topic: Who is your favorite DBZ character? DBZ Universe vs Marvel/DC Universe?  (Read 174 times)

Hello everyone :)


1st part of the question.....


Just recently I started to get into the DBZ universe :).  I have been watching the old episodes and the Budokai games and most especially Fighter Z are gorgeous and incredible fighting games up to the standards of Marvel Vs Capcom games.  Very fun and fast paced arcade fun :D    I love the anime quite a bit and have been enjoying all the characters and the back plot.  It's taking a lot to unravel as I am extremely late.  But i'm starting back with the old cartoons and working my way up to new stuff.


I definitely already have my number 1 favorite character.  But I will list off my favorite 3.   



I also wanted to ask, what is everyone's thoughts on DBZ as a whole? 


NUBMER 1 FAVORITE CHARACTER - Android 18




Android 18 is super badass.  I think she's awesome.  Not only is she extremely tough and capable of whooping Vegeta's butt but she is also extremely beautiful even though she's an android lol.   ;D



Second Favorite - Piccolo




Piccolo is epic,  he's strong but grounded in his ways too.  He's Goku's buddy and he's strong af.   


3rd favorite -  Goku




I know it's a casual fan answer because he's so popular, but he's freaking Goku lol.  I like him a lot.  More than I like Vegetta or Gohan. 





Second Part of the Question......








For my second part of the title,  I have seen a lot of debates circling around that Goku by himself could beat up the entire Marvel Universe.   I think this is a bit of hyperbole and very situational but I could be wrong.  I want to make it fair by giving Goku some sort of power limit.  Maybe a certain SS threshold as DBZ universe plot wise the power is basically limitless so theoretically Goku could defeat anyone.   So I made it fairer by having the entire DBZ Universe versus the Entire Marvel and DC universes.     In a giant show down of epic galactic, super hero, saiyan proprotions :)



I personally think it's very close.   For the DBZ let's give them only their regular form, maybe Super Saiyan form but not ultimate form so it's fair.   But I think Silver Surfer serves to be an extremely difficult out, as does Galactus.   Characters like Spiderman who are essentially mortals with super power suits would get killed pretty easily by Goku.  Batman would get snapped in half like a pencil and maybe even eaten lol.    But I think some mutated beasts like Venom, Carnage, Hulk, and the likes would be very tough to beat.   I think Hulk would get bested by Piccolo easily but I think Carnage might Kill a Krillin or a Trunks. 



It'd be a pretty amazing showdown.  I think their are so many faceoffs to be had :)




Which is your pick for which universe would win?



I think i'm giving it to DBZ unvierse by a slim margain.  I know Cell could whoop a good portion of the universe.  I think strenght in numbers might play for Marvel.  It'd be super close :)

Even though he's a bad guy for a lot of Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta has always been a big favorite.  The asshole who eventually got a heart, his rivalry with Goku is always a good time and he has some pretty great moments.


My second favorite would be Future Trunks, he's had such a great design and is a pretty great character in the overall story as he's so different from everyone else due to what he went through.


And for a third favorite, I'd probably say Piccolo.  He turns into kinda one of the most consistently dependable characters in the series.  Also he's basically Gohan's real dad.

1. Goku
2. Vegita
3. Frieza


I love Dragon Ball Z...to a point, and then it becomes difficult to watch.


The series in excellent, interesting, and has a lot of weight and purpose up through the Frieza Saga with Goku transforming into the legendary Super Saiyan and defeating Frieza being the pinnacle of the series. I really feel like the series should have ended after the Frieza Saga, ending with Goku returning to earth to be with all of his friends and family. After the Frieza Saga the series isn't bad (mostly), but it never that great again either.


I thought the Android and Cell Saga were interesting in theory, but the actual episodes really aren't that great mostly. Cell is literally a derivative character as he is just the culmination of all the best fighters in the series combined. Sure, he is trying to kill off humanity and destroy the world, but that is probably the most overused, cliche villein motivation in the book. What bothers me more than that is how they cheapened the Super Saiyan transformation by allowing everyone to become one even though it was established as being this incredibly rare event that was only a legend up until Goku's transformation. In the Android and Cell Saga everyone gets to become one, and then to try and make it more interesting they just create a more powerful, ascended version, then Super Saiyan 2, all of which just dilute the coolness and importance of the transformation more and more.


I feel like the series did pick up slightly at the beginning of the Buu Saga, but again never coming close to touching how awesome the first three sagas are. The Martial Arts Tournament was great and really captured the more lighthearted feel of Dragon Ball, and Vegita's fight against Goku was incredible, as was Vegita's character development during this time. After that though the series just turned into bad guy trying to destroying the earth generic plot with fairly uninteresting villeins. Also more Super Saiyan trnaformations in the form of SSJ3 and fusions. Admittedly I have not finished the Buu Saga yet; I still have about 30 episodes to go until I do that, but I plan on getting through those soon.


In summary, just watch through the Frieza Saga lol

Vegeta is the biggest bad-ass in Dragon Ball Z, my favorite character.

As for Marvel Universe vs. DBZ universe...well at first glance you obviously want to say DBZ due to their extreme power-levels.

But then you think about it, and once you get to the upper cosmic-level characters in the Marvel Universe, such as The Celestials, The Beyonder, The Living Tribunal, and The Phoenix Force; and Goku and Vegeta are kind of screwed.

Marvel Universe wins that battle thanks to their cosmic entities.

really depends

In pretty much all dragonball series yea sure, however in dragonball super it has chanced

Goku and vegeta are pretty outlcassed by many god tier characters them being worthless in comparison. even to the lower class destroyer gods they are mere play things. things have chanced in the dbz universe.

I mean like seriously vegeta the badd ass with allot of pride is like literally a small time errand boy for the lower destroyer class that's how scared this guy is since he can't do anything about it and those are only destroyers. O well I guess it is better than being picollo who was turned into a baby sitter nowadays a joke in the franchise  ::)




Anyways them entities being

Destroyer tier

Beerus champa etc only needing less than 1% of their power to beat a super sayan blue god goku. Not to mention that they could with some effort destroy an entire universe wich contain many solar systems and galaxies wich is kinda krazy, not to mention destroying planets wich are far bigger than earth when missing a punch lol  ::)

Angel tier

Not to mention that the destroyers them selves cannot stand up against the angels wich are the teachers of them destroyers outclassing them by allot hence they fear them not to mention that within the angels there different tiers of how powerfull they are.

God tier

And to top it all off you have the grand zeno, the big boss of all the 12 universes and everything that exists literally a god. Apparently there where a couple more universes in the past but Zeno destroyed them in an instant since some of the god beings of those universes angered him.

even the very best god characters in dragonball fear this being since he could litereally snap his fingers and destroy multiple universes at once like he has done in the past and obviously  kill anyone with ease.

Superman destroys goku but goku is a pretty weak being in dragonball z super a mere plaything used by the gods for tournaments and entertainment  :o
The great zeno will destroy the marvel dc universe easily no contest really.

The Beyonder can create literally anything he can think of. He's created and destroyed entire universes. Doom used his power to save the destroyed Marvel Universe, place himself as God, and recreate it in his own image. Mr. Fantastic used it to recreate the Marvel Universe and continues to use it to create new universes in the Multiverse. Beyonder himself, in full control of his own power, is even more powerful than that.

The Celestials are basically the architects of the Marvel Universe and is what caused super-powered beings to even exist on Earth. They create, tend to, and destroy entire planets in an end-goal that is STILL a mystery.

And the Living Tribunal is the living embodiment of God's judgment. He decides the fate of entire worlds, galaxies, and even universes based on the ruling of God and carries out his judgment.

While the Grand Zenno, who is admittedly damn powerful, is still child-like. He's more interested in things like tournaments and playing games with Goku. You send someone like The Beyonder or Celestials against him, that rivals him in power, and know how to take things seriously, and Grand Zenno is in some serious trouble.
