The 20 Greatest Dragon Ball Movie Villains, Ranked

October 28, 2020 437 votes 53 voters20 items

In its multi-decade run, the Dragon Ball series has come out with a ton of great movies. One of the things that makes them so exhilarating is the villains who provide the heroes with challenges they must overcome. 

Some of the best Dragon Ball movie villains also appear in the main series or show up after being introduced in the movie. By the time Frieza is introduced as the big bad of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ fans are already well-acquainted with him. Meanwhile, Garlic Jr. was first introduced in a film before getting his own saga in the anime. Other villains like Dr. Wheelo from Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest, are exclusive to the movie. 

Which of these villains is your favorite? Vote them up to let the world know what you think.

  • Like many Dragon Ball villains, Bojack hoped to conquer the universe. Sealed away for a while, the Hera-jin was unleashed once King Kai and his planet were destroyed during the Cell Games. He's been described as both 'sadistic' and 'genocidal.'

    He's been compared to Perfect Cell in terms of his strength. He was able to stand up to Gohan in Super Saiyan Full Power, both before and after his own transformation. But once Gohan transforms into Super Saiyan 2, the heroes actually do stand a chance.

    Android 13 - Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13!

    Android 13 is notorious for being extremely unkind to Goku's nether regions, but it's not like all of his moves are below the belt. Created by Dr. Gero to pursue his grudge against Goku, he's outlandishly strong. Even in his base form, he has moves like S.S. Deadly Bomber, which are supposedly strong enough to destroy the Earth. After he absorbs parts of Android 14 and Android 15, he gets an even greater boost to his power.

  • When Kami sealed Garlic Jr's father Garlic, the younger Garlic grew obsessed with revenge. Combine that with immortality granted by the Dragon Balls and you have one thorny, arrogant personality. Though he does manage to defeat Kami, he's no match for Goku and Piccolo once they take their weighted armor off.

    Hirudegarn - Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon

    Created from a statue by a group of evil wizards, Hirudegarn is a Phantom Majin. He thoughtlessly destroys everything that surrounds him. He breathes fire, absorbs energy via his tail, and transforms into ectoplasm to avoid attack. But before the wizards got to him, he was actually a Demon God whose job was to purify people's hearts by removing evil ki.
