Whether you're looking at Cell, Buu, or Frieza, the Dragon Ball franchise has some of the greatest villains in anime history. Do the villains of Dragon Ball Super measure up to the villains of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z? There are some truly excellent Dragon Ball Super villains, like Broly and Zamasu, but how good are they, really? And which ones are truly the best?
This list includes villains who are indisputably evil like Zamasu, but it also includes characters like Jiren and Hit who aren't evil per se, just opposing Goku. Because much of the series takes place during a tournament, there are plenty of characters who need to be defeated but aren't necessarily doing something wrong so much as looking out for their own interests. Rather than villains, they're antagonists, but they're still included here. There are also some characters like Beerus who begin as villains but ultimately become allies.
