Seeing Bardock and Broly so high don't surprise me at all, they are overrated as hell even tho i like them very much.
17 was always very popular among fans. I've seen many people actually saying Super 17 was not only the best GT villain but also best DB villain overall. Sick.
I would never think Paragus would be so high like wtf.

I don't know how this works, but i highly doubt trash like Jaco or Zamasu are more popular than Bulma and Whis or that Goku Black is more popular than Cell or Vegito lol.
I also can't see Gogeta on this list.
Maybe japanese people just have different taste.
Seeing Videl so high makes me happy tho. She's my favourite DBZ character and second favourite DB character overall.

What is Paragus doing there again?
Rarity is the best pony
Pan-chan is the best saiya-jin

I knew that Goku Black and Zamasu (both Future Zamasu and Fused Zamasu) would be on the list. It's not a surprise. The debut of Goku Black was the most viewed episode in Super by a wide margin. But i'm shocked that Paragus is more popular than Black!

Zamasu was like the main villian (along with Goku Black) in the Black arc. With his character and mentality throughout the arc, I don't think it's surprising that he is above them. You're right about Jaco though.

Why is Bardock always so popular? He's not that good of a character at all and doesn't even have a unique appearance.

I can understand Broly more so than the forgettable Bardock.

Well he is a pure blooded Saiyan, more importantly the father of Goku, he is very brave, he is a badass, he's serious, he's charismatic, the first movie just shows how cool he is... I'm not a fan of Bardock but I can understand why a lot of people love him so much.

He only had that one 48 minute movie, where he was a dick throughout most of it and got his ass kicked twice.

This poll is strange, Future Trunk did not even appear while Puar and Chiaouztu did like wtf.
    But it's nice see Caulifla in 15th as well #17 in 7th and Gohan in 6th it makes me happy.

      I'm not sure if polls like this can be take seriously. Do we know how many people voted? And when did this vote take place? And how long were people given the chance to vote? And how many characters were they allowed to vote for?

      I'd say polls like these are about as valid as the ones that asked who you want to see on the ToP team and people voted for shit like "Kid Gohan". There's very obviously no way in hell a character like Paragus would be in anyone's top 10 list for favorite characters, which makes me think this had to be a poll of like, 20 people, probably less.

      With a sampling that small, we really can't take the poll in any sort of "general consensus" kind of fashion.

      In other words, it's a meaningless and pointless poll that doesn't really warrant any kind of attention.

      From what I heard, the reason Paragus is so high is because he's a meme in Japan.


      Strange poll results, but I like them. 17 and 18 being in the top 6 is very nice and pleasent surprise. I know not a lot of people voted, but I think more than 500 people is a good enough number.
