Best characters in DBZ Legends – check out our tier list
Updated: August 22nd, 2023
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.
We compiled another DBZ Dokkan Battle tier list for you, in case you prefer that game over Legends!
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
Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black (UL)
Buu: Kid (UL, YEL)
Hit (UL, RED)
Super Saiyan God SS Gogeta (UL, PUR)
These 4 here are currently considered to be the best fighters in the game. Obviously we will have to wait a little bit and see how the new Goku & Final Form Frieza duo ranks up. They are definitely super strong. SP Shallot is also a force to be reckoned with. But with that said, these characters here will remain at the top most likely.

DBZ Legends Tier List – Z Rank
Beast Gohan (LL, BLU)
Super Saiyan 4 Goku & Vegeta 4 (LL, GRN)
Android #17 (LL, BLU)
Zamasu (SP, BLU)
Tier Z and Z+ are fighters that define the current meta in Dragon Ball Z Legends. It’s just that the Z+ fighters next page 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 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
Pan (SP, Red)
Super Saiyan 4 Goku (LL, YEL)
2nd Form Cell (SP, RED)
Android #17 (SP, 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
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)
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. Afterall, Dragonball Legends is a team game based game. Regardless, we are still talking about top 20 fighters in the game currently, so if you have any of them, they are great.
DBZ Legends Tier List – A Rank
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)
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 consiered 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 – B Rank
SP Zamasu: Goku Black (Green)
SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Purple)
SP Mecha Frieza (Purple)
SP Boujack (Red)
SP God of Destruction Toppo (Green)
SP Buu: Kid (Blue)
SP Demon King Piccolo (Aged) (Purple)
SP Super Saiyan 2 Trunks (Blue)
SP Majin Buu: Good (Green)
SP Super Saiyan God Goku (Green)
SP Android #18 (Yellow)
SP Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku (Blue)
SP Super Saiyan 4 Goku (Purple)
SP Super Gogeta (Red)
SP Piccolo (Yellow)
SP Demon King Piccolo (Yellow)
SP Super #17 (Green)
SP Angry Goku (Blue)
SP Final Form Frieza (Blue)
SP Super Saiyan Bardock (Blue)
SP Perfect Cell (Purple)
SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta (Green)
SP Hero Tapion (Yellow)
SP LL Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Dragon Fist) (Green)
This group of fighters used to be meta defining, but with the latest LL and UL releases, they were dropped out of the meta. Of course, some of these characters are still solid picks that can compliment other more powerful fighters. But, with that said, they can’t be the center piece of your team.
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.
