We decided to help both new and returning players with the DBZ Legends tier list of the best characters in the game!

Dragon Ball Z Legends by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc is a 3D anime action RPG game for mobile devices. 

The game offers an original storyline based on a new character designed by Akira Toriyama himself, a Saiyan named Shallot.

But story mode is just a part of Dragon Ball Z Legends. There are campaign events and a co-op mode to play along with your friends and of course real-time PvP battles. You can summon your favourite units from the Dragon Ball universe and put together the best possible team to take into battle.

Dragon Ball Legends best characters

There are so many units in the game that it can get a bit overwhelming for new (and also returning) players. For that reason, we’ve put together a Dragon Ball Z Legends tier list of the best characters.

The way we determine the tiers isn’t just the standalone power of each fighter, but also how well their optimal teams do in the current state of the game.

A unit can be very strong but if their team isn’t as good as others currently, naturally we will have to take that into consideration when we rank the fighters.

A very good example would be SP Toppo (Blue). A unit with great support and defensive capabilities plus an amazing main ability and good damage. Yet his team at the moment is very good, so we will put him lower on our list.

Anyway, you are here to check our DBZ Legends tier list! So without any further ado let’s get right into it.

Please keep in mind, characters in each tier are NOT in a particular order.

DBZ Legends Tier List - Z+ Rank

DBZ character power move
  • SP LL Super Saiyan Trunks (Teen) (Green)
  • UL Super Vegito (Yellow)
  • SP Android #17 & Android #18 (Red)
  • UL Super Saiyan God SS Kaioken Goku (Yellow)
  • SP Ultra Instinct Goku (Red)
  • UL Super Gogeta (Blue)
  • SP Angel Golden Frieza (Green)
  • SP LL Super Saiyan God SS Goku & Vegeta (Purple)
  • SP Jiren: Full Power (Purple)>
  • SP Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta (Green)
  • SP Final Form Frieza: Full Power (Yellow)
  • SP Super Saiyan 2 Youth Gohan (Red)
  • SP Super Saiyan Gohan (Youth) (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Green)

Just 3 units in this part of DBZ Legends tier list... Pretty weird, isn’t it? Dragon Ball Z Legends has lots of units and there are some seriously powerful ones, but there are levels to this. I took a break from the game for a few months and I came back to it around a month ago. I can’t say that I was too surprised to see that Gohan and 18 still define the meta.

18 is actually even better than what she was because of how well 21 compliments her. Very oppressive unit to face in a fight. That’s the reason why they are on a tier of their own. The absolute best fighters in Dragon Ball Z Legends.

Tier Z and Z+ are units that define the current meta in Dragon Ball Z Legends. It’s just that the fighters on our next page are on their own level (at the moment at least). But make no mistake. Z Tier fighters are super strong units that have great teams. If you are a veteran in Dragon Ball Legends, you won’t find this surprising at all. If you are a new player, well… that’s how it is!

DBZ Legends Tier List - S+ Rank

  • LL Super Saiyan Trunks (Teen)
  • SP Half-Corrupted Fusion Zamasu (Red)
  • EX Jiren (Blue)
  • SP LL Final Form Frieza: Full Power (Yellow)
  • SP Super Saiyan Teen Gohan (Blue)
  • SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegito (Purple))
  • SP Super Saiyan Kid Goten (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan God SS Goku (Blue) (Revived)
  • SP Fused with Kami Piccolo (Blue)
  • SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Blue)
  • SP Android #17: DBS (Yellow)
  • SP Majuub (Yellow)
  • SP Vegeta (Yellow)

DBZ Legends Tier S/S+ fighters are core members of some of the strongest teams currently in the game. We’ve put these three units on a separate tier just because they are slightly better than the other S tier units.

For example, Trunks could be Z tier if he had better defense. He’s THAT good. One of the best damage dealers in the game.

Angry Goku became very good after the Zenkai boost. Among the best units in the game. Additionally he’s a buffer for top tier teams.

Blue Goku also received a Zenkai boost making him overall an amazing unit. Amazing defense, recovering his Vanish Gauge and also high damage output.

DBZ Legends Tier List - S Rank

DBZ character flying
  • SP Whis (Purple)
  • SP 1st Form Frieza (Purple)
  • SP Super Vegito (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Green)
  • SP Perfect Form Cell (Revived) (Red)
  • SP Super 17# (Green)
  • SP Goku Black (Green)
  • SP Super Saiyan Trunks (Teen) (Green)
  • EX Gohan (Green)
  • SP Vados (Green)
  • SP Hit (Purple)
  • SP Toppo (Blue)
  • SP Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta (Red)
  • SP Android #21 (Blue)
  • SP Super Saiyan God Vegeta (Yellow)

Zenkai units takie almost all the spots here. Many units from the Regeneration category as well. That's because of how strong that team is at the moment..

21 just fits into a lot of top tier teams at the moment. Regeneration, Android (she makes them THAT good). Very good support overall.

Goku black is a unit that you probably face every other fight and for a good reason. The unit has Zenkai level stats with great damage output.

Demon King Piccolo has probably the best skill in the game. Upon transformation you get 4 cards (!!!!) and 100 Ki energy. How broken is that? . It takes time for Demon King Piccolo to transform. You either need all the dragon balls or 30 counts. They had to trey and balance his skill somehow I guess. Of course he fits perfectly on Regeneration team.

DBZ Legends Tier List - A Rank

  • SP Android #21: Good (Green)
  • SP Trunks (Kid) (Green)
  • SP Final Form Frieza: DBS (Red)
  • SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta (Future) (Purple)
  • SP Legendary Super Saiyan Broly (Green)
  • SP Final Form Cooler (Blue)
  • SP Goten (Kid) (Yellow)
  • SP Super Saiyan Broly: Full Power (Blue)
  • SP Metal Cooler (Green)
  • SP Super Saiyan God SS Gogeta (Yellow)
  • SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegito (Blue)
  • SP Final Form Frieza (Yellow)
  • SP Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku (Purple)
  • SP Bergamo (Red)
  • SP Vegeta (Yellow)
  • SP Metal Cooler (Red)
  • SP Super Saiyan Broly (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan Teen Trunks (Red)
  • SP Trunks: Mai (Assist) (Red)
  • SP God of Destruction Beerus (Green)
  • SP Jiren (Green)
  • SP God of Destruction Champa (Yellow)
  • SP Launch (Red)
  • SP Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (Youth) (Purple)

Units of this tier are very solid choices in top tier teams. Maybe they lack something compared to S and above tier fighters (toolkit, synergies, etc), but make no mistake, these units can hold their own.

As we’ve mentioned before, Toppo as a standalone unit would had been placed in a higher tier for sure. But the fact his optimal team at the moment isn’t that good, puts him a bit lower.

Another example would be SP Final Form Frieza: DBS Red. Amazing toolkit with a great Extra Move. Problem is, his in Lineage of Evil team which isn’t that amazing currently.

DBZ Legends Tier List - B Rank

Purple character with Goku in the background
  • EX Captain Ginyu (Purple)
  • SP Teen Trunks (Purple)
  • SP Hit (Yellow)
  • SP Basil (Blue)
  • SP Lavender (Purple)
  • SP Fusion Zamasu (Purple)
  • SP Vegito (Yellow)
  • SP Android #21: Evil (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan Broly (Yellow)
  • SP Wasteland Bandit Yamcha (Green)
  • SP LL Majin Vegeta (Blue)
  • SP Ultimate Gohan Absorbed Buu: Super (Purple)
  • SP Gohan (Adult) (Blue)
  • SP Youth Goku (Yellow)
  • SP Dyspo (Red)
  • SP Broly: Fury (Red)
  • SP Youth Trunks (Blue)
  • SP Super Saiyan Vegeta (Purple)
  • SP Super Saiyan Trunks (Adult) (Rage) (Yellow)
  • SP Bulma (Youth) (Purple)
  • SP Super Kaioken Goku (Green)
  • SP Legendary Super Saiyan Broly (Blue)
  • SP Vegito (Yellow)

Units of DBZ Legends Tier A and above (as you'll see on the next pages) are the staple choices for their teams. Fighters of this tier (b) would be a solid alternative. They have been surpassed by newest releases for the most part, but their toolkits and synergies allows them to see some play if necessary.
