What is the best pure saiyan in Dragonball Z? This question has plagued fans for decades, and now it’s finally time to put this debate to rest. After a rigorous 3 month study of all pure saiyans, we have compiled a list that ranks all the available characters from weakest to strongest. In addition, we’ve included descriptions of why each character made our rankings where they did. So without further ado, here are the definitive results!
What are pure saiyans?
Pure Saiyans (Japanese: 純粋なサイヤ人; Junsuina Saiajin) are a race of extraterrestrials from the planet Plant who possess superhuman abilities. The term “pure” also refers to their bloodline, as they can only be descendants of that lineage and thus by definition must have been born on Planet Plant. While there is no official distinction in Japanese between “pure-blooded” Saiyan or those with mixed heritage, this article assumes them to all belong to one race rather than two separate ones.
In addition to being mostly human in appearance, most pure saiyan warriors seem virtually identical except for varying hair colors which may reflect the corresponding personality traits of the individual and unique physical attributes.
A pure Saiyan’s strength level can be determined in a number of ways, but the most reliable is probably their power level (or “PL”). The scale goes from 0 to 250,000 with all numbers divisible by ten being rounded up or down accordingly. It should also be noted that when Goku was transformed into his child form following his battle with Zaacro, he reverted back to a Power Level of less than 200 which would originally have been written as 19 instead of 210 before it was corrected for continuity purposes. When Lord Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta there are only six Saiyans left alive: Son Gokou at 4000; Tarble at 570; Bardock whose PL is unknown but estimated to be high considering he was the leader of a Saiyan rebellion at 1200; Tora whose PL is also unknown and about whom all that is known is that his power level when fighting Frieza’s soldiers on Planet Vegeta while Gokou slept in Wukong Hospital was “several hundred”; Nappa who had a PL of 2300, Raditz with an assumed power level of 2000-2500 (it varies depending on sources); Gohan whose hidden power levels are over 9000.
The most popular anime in the world, Dragon Ball Z has taken the world by storm and is still going strong. With over 360 episodes of content to watch there are a lot of things to take in and different characters to get attached too. The show has so many iconic moments that it’s hard for any fan not to have their favorite character or series arc. There are also some very heated debates about which Saiyan is stronger than another but until now there was no list with all-time rankings! Here is our definitive ranking from weakest (1) up to strongest (6).
Raditz, with an assumed power level of 2000-2500
Gohan whose hidden power levels are over 9000.
Nappa, Vegeta’s underling and partner in crime from the Saiyan saga. He is a vicious fighter but lacks intelligence which makes him easy to defeat. His battle skills mainly consist of brute force attacks like punches and kicks that he can easily overpower his opponents by pinning them against walls or smashing their heads into mountainsides until they crumble beneath him. Weaknesses: Lackluster fighting technique leaves openings for opponents who are skilled fighters; does not know when to hold back on strength leading to early depletion of energy reserves resulting in helplessness and death if.
In the past, there have been many articles and blog posts about what tier of Saiyan a person is. People would classify themselves as a Low-Tier Saiyans, Mid-Tier Saiyans or even High-Tier Saiyans. There were also those that claimed to be in the “Saiyan Elite” category. However, since then it has become easier to determine one’s power level due to the introduction of new techniques such as the Kaioken and Super Saiyan transformations. All these things considered, I’ve decided to create an all time definitive list of every possible tier for Saiyan characters. This will help players understand where they rank on this list before they get into any arguments with people who disagree with them on their power level classification.
The Saiyan race is a warrior culture that has produced some of the most powerful fighters in all of history. It’s no surprise then, that there are many different tiers for these fighters based on their power. In the past, there was one tier that encompassed all pure saiyans. However, as time has passed and more techniques have been introduced into this world it’s become easier to determine someone’s power level . As such I’ve decided to create an all-time list of every possible tier for a Saiyan character in order to help players understand where they rank among their peers before any arguments with people who disagree on your classification happen.
