7 Most Epic Moments From Dragon Ball Z
First of all, there are tonnes of great and epic moments in Dragon Ball Z but listing them all will take way too much time! So we’ve compiled a list of our Top 7 Most Epic Moments From Dragon Ball Z from the anime itself. Some of you will agree and some will disagree, however have a read and then tell us what you think in the comments.
We’ve picked 7 all together, one for each Dragon Ball and keep in mind this list is in no particular order. Without any further delay, let’s get started!
Future Trunks vs Frieza
We’re sure that no one can dispute that this belongs in this list! The introduction of Future Trunks in the Dragon Ball Z series is to this day one of the greatest ever. A mysterious young man appears almost out of nowhere to meet the return of Frieza. Keep in mind that the remaining Z Warriors trembled with fear at the thought of Frieza returning. Trunks shot a Ki blast where Frieza and King Cold stood, they jump out of the way only to fall into his trap. Trunks appears from above and in one stroke slices Frieza in half and then loads of tiny pieces. The best bit was when he blasted the pieces into smithereens, so awesome!
Goku Turns Super Saiyan For The First Time
Who else remembers watching this for the first time? It happened so long ago that it almost gets forgotten about. One reason is we’ve had a huge amount of power-ups and transformations since then for various characters. Nevertheless, credit needs to be given where credit is due as this transformation paved the way for new forms. When the Kaio-Ken was not enough to help defeat Frieza it seemed like it’ll end badly. However, Frieza crossed the line by blowing Krillin up right in front of Goku’s eyes, his childhood best friend. That pushed Goku over the edge and proved to be the catalyst in him transforming into a Super Saiyan. The rest was history.
Gohan Transforms to Super Saiyan 2
The Cell sagas to this day still remain as one of the most popular story arcs from Dragon Ball Z. However, there are a few notable moments that were just pure awesome like this one. We all knew Gohan was strong for his age, but Goku knew that Gohan possessed much greater strength within. However, unlocking Gohan’s potential would need a catalyst just like Goku did, because of his gentle spirit. In steps Android 16, who tried to kill Cell by self-destructing but ultimately failed and managed to get his body destroyed. His head however remained alive and able to talk. Whilst he tried to motivate Gohan, Perfect Cell stomps on his head, killing him in the process. That was the last straw, and the beginning of the end for Cell.
For some, Majin Vegeta was the coolest character from the entire Dragon Ball Z series. It was great to have an evil Vegeta back and going toe to toe with Goku once again. However, the most memorable part was that epic speech that many DBZ will remember fondly. As the prince of all Saiyans Vegeta, told us what it means to be a Saiyan and what motivates him. Vegeta had a grudge against Goku, he’d disgraced his honour by surpassing him on many occasions. Babidi commands that he kill Supreme Kai but to no avail, as no one is more stubborn than Vegeta. His immense speech about pride followed by that huge explosion of power shocked everyone (except Goku). Who doesn’t love a good Vegeta speech?
Super Vegito vs Super Buu
Super Saiyan Vegito was such an awesome character and his fight with Buu was incredible to watch. This fight included the two strongest fighters in the universe at that point in time that we knew about. A fusion of the two leading heroes in the Z Universe will always go down well. Although a combination of Goku and Vegeta, Vegito possessed his own fun personality. His cocky, arrogant behaviour only served to anger Majin Buu, which was both awesome and hilarious. In addition, Vegito knew he was the better fighter and stronger, which angered Buu even more. Especially when Vegito toyed around with Buu for the majority of their fight. Even when Buu had turned him into a tiny chocolate ball, Vegito still managed to kick his ass!
Future Trunks turns Super Saiyan for the First Time
In what would become a bittersweet story line, Future Trunks really went through some traumatic experiences. Everyone he loved died around him including his father Vegeta. Luckily he had his best friend and mentor Gohan and of course his loving mother Bulma. However, all that changed when Gohan died in battle, and because Piccolo was already dead there were no Dragon Balls. Trunks who had struggled to unlock his Super Saiyan potential needed that trigger to unleash his inner-strength. It was incredible to watch and equally sad.
Father Son Kamehameha
After Perfect Cell had returned revitalised, he carried on from where he left off. He shot an energy beam straight through the chest of Trunks, almost killing him. Vegeta rightly angered, proceeded to give everything he had to kill Cell but to no avail. Cell merely brushed him aside with ease and as he was about to blow him up, Gohan blocked the attack. However, things started to go downhill from there as the attack severely damaged Gohans arm. Cell powers up a Kamehameha to kill Gohan, but he fires one back with some motivation from his father. It looked as if Cell would win and destroy Gohan. Until the remaining Z Warriors with the help of Vegeta, managed to obstruct Cell. This gave Gohan the edge, and managed to incinerate Cell completely and for good. A collective effort and a great way to end the saga.
