Dragon Ball FighterZ has taken its place in the competitive fighting game scene, offering a wide array of characters to pit against each other in battle. Many of the heroes and villains from the legendary anime and manga series appear in the massive 44 character roster, so choosing who to fight as can be a challenge.

That’s where we come in, though. With our Dragon Ball FighterZ tier list, you can see who‘s helpful and who’s a hindrance. Do bear in mind that not every character is as easy to master as Android 16. Some of the top tier Dragon Ball FighterZ characters take a lot of skill to use to their full potential.

Still, this Dragon Ball FighterZ tier list gives you a few options to choose from. We recommend giving a handful of characters a go to find who you’ll have the most success with – there’s no definitive right answer. If you’re looking for more Dragon Ball fun, we’ve also got a Dragon Ball Legends tier list. If you’d rather something different, check out our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list, or our League of Legends: Wild Rift tier list for a good guide to being the best.
