After hours of playing it ourselves, we've decided to help both new and returning players by creating this very handy Dragon Ball Z Legends tier list, it's the best way to push on through by properly choosing the best characters in the game!

Dragon Ball Z Legends, by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc is a 3D anime action RPG game exclusively 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 small 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 - that;'s the reason we've pulled together this Dragon Ball Z Legends tier list of the best characters.

That said, 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 we have to consider that when we rank the fighters. A 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 current team is not very good at all, so he's lower in the rankings than he would be if this was a straightforward, non-party/team-based game.

Anyway, you're here to check our Dragon Ball Z Legends tier list! So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

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

DBZ Legends Tier List - Z+ Rank

Characters
Goku & Final Form Frieza (Legends Limited, PUR/BLU)
Android #17 (Legends Limited, BLU)
Super Saiyan God SS Vegito (UL, RED)
Super Saiyan Goku (Legends Limited, BLU)

These are the absolute best fighters currently in DBZ Legends. They dominate the battlefield and they shape the meta. Goku & Final Form Frieza is overal the best fighter in the game. Everything about these two is just insane. Their duo ability is crazy and their base stats are through the roof. Of course, the buffs they are getting whenever they switch are also amazing. Anyway, what else can you say about these two?

Super Saiyan Goku is the latest entry to the top of the rankings. I'm sure no one was surprised about the other two fighters.

DBZ Legends Tier List - Z Rank

Characters
Perfect Form Cell (Legends Limited, PUR)
Gamma 1 & Gamma 2 (Legends Limited, YEL)
Goku (Youth) (Legends Limited, PUR)
Super Saiyan Trunks (Adult) (Legends Limited, BLU)

Tier Z and Z+ are fighters that define the current meta in Dragon Ball Z Legends. It’s just that the Z+ fighters are on their own level (at the moment at least). But of course, these four characters right here are also super strong and, they also have great teams. If you are a veteran of 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

Characters
Captain Ginyu (SP, PUR)
Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black (UL, GRN)
Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku (Legends Limited, PUR)
Super Saiyan God SS Gogeta (UL, PUR)

DBZ Legends Tier S/S+ fighters are core members of some of the strongest teams currently in the game. We’ve put these characters on a separate tier just because they are slightly better than the other S tier units. But, no matter how you slice it, these are still top 15 fighters. They are more than just powerful characters, obviously.

DBZ Legends Tier List - S Rank

Characters
Buu: Kid (UL, YEL)
Recoome & Guldo (SP, YEL/ GRN)
Piccolo Jr. (SP, RED)
Hit (UL, RED)

The characters in this tier are still considered to be 'meta'. Obviously, not as strong as the fighters in the above tiers, but still more than capable of getting the job done, make no mistake about it! Sometimes it's not just how strong the characters are on their own. After all, Dragonball Legends is a team game-based game. Regardless, we are still talking about the top 20 fighters in the game currently, so if you have any of them, they are great.

DBZ Legends Tier List - A Rank

Characters
Android #8 (SP, BLU)
Jiren (SP, YEL)
Beast Gohan (Legends Limited, BLU)
Jeice & Burter (SP, RED/BLU)

The characters in this tier are still considered to be 'meta'. Obviously, not as strong as the fighters in the above tiers, but still more than capable of getting the job done, make no mistake about it! Sometimes it's not just how strong the characters are on their own. After all, Dragonball Legends is a team game-based game. Regardless, we are still talking about the top 20 fighters in the game currently, so if you have any of them, they are great.

DBZ Legends Tier List - B Rank


  • Super Saiyan Gohan (LL, YEL)
  • Super Saiyan 2 & Super Saiyan God SS Trunks (Adult) & Vegeta (LL, Yellow)
  • Super Vegito (UL, YEL)
  • Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black (LL, PUR)
  • SP Final Form Cooler (Red)
  • UL Legendary Super Saiyan Broly (Purple)
  • 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)
  • Demon King Piccolo
  • 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)


Even though these fighters are not considered to be meta anymore, they used to be the strongest characters in the game, not so long ago. To give you an example, Cooler was considered by many to be the best, but after a short while Beast Gohan was released and he took that spot. Then the newest character was released and so on. You get the idea, power creep is real in Dragonball. Regardless, if you are not looking to compete at the highest level when it comes to PvP, these fighters are still very solid.

DBZ Legends Tier List - C Rank


  • SP Half-Corrupted Fusion Zamasu (Red)
  • SP LL Final Form Frieza: Full Power (Yellow)
  • SP Super Saiyan Teen Gohan (Blue)
  • 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)


Even though these fighters here are in the bottom tier, they can still be useful in some situations. Angry Goku became very good after the Zenkai boost and he can be a buffer for some very solid teams.

Blue Goku also received a Zenkai boost that made him much stronger. Amazing defense, recovering his Vanish Gauge and also high damage output. Of course, it goes without saying that you cannot build a top tier team with any of these fighters as the center piece.

I enjoy playing games ever since I was a kid (which was a long long time ago at this point). Everything started with an Atari 65XE. Then came an Amiga 500+, a Sega Genesis, a 386, a Playstation, a Playstation 2 and so on. Anyway, you get the idea. I consider myself lucky to be able to experience the gaming evolution throughout the years. This is my passion, and what I will continue to do for as long as I can.
