The main thing that surprises me is that future trunks isn't top 10

Had the poll been done in the US, Trunks most likely would have been top 3.

Some characters have changed positions since I first saw the poll a week ago. Paragus is now under Piccolo, Paikuhan was added to the list, Goku is now top three, and Kale and Kefla are even, as examples.

I had no idea Japan liked Bardock and Broli that much, I thought that was an American thing.

Japan likes Broli so much that fucking Paragus slid into the top 10 riding off his coattails.

Despite all his hard work, Roshi is one of the least popular humans whilst Yamcha is the most popular(although I can get behind this). Krillin losing to Chiaoutzu in popularity. I am so confused. Launch being so high is a surprise too. Seems the fanbase never forgot her unlike Toriyama.

Paragus is a meme in Japan, that's why he's up there.
Zamasu, Broly, Mira & Fu

The list just got updated again. Vegeta is now 1st place, Piccolo is now in the top 10, Mira, Janemba and especially Android 21 are now included on the list.

Yamcha in #12, above Blue Vegito. Given Fighter Z as well, I expect Yamcha's popularity to skyrocket.

Maybe when Dragonball comes back from hiatus they'll finally give him a role. He went the entire span of Super without a single thing to do. :lol:

He saved the universe with Baseball.

*plays Flash Gordon theme*

Which reminds me how sad I am that they didn`t give him proper anti air missiles with baseball moves.

So based on this, apparently for the Japanese fandom:

1. Yamcha is the most popular human fighter.

2. Tien is NOT hated in Japan, neither is Jiren. Both rank pretty high.

3. Android 18 is the most popular female character.

4. Hit is the most popular non-U7 character, and ranks pretty high.

5. Broly is the most popular villain, rivaled only by Frieza and Goku Black.

6. The Android twins get a lot of love over there.

7. Uub and (suprisingly) Valese are the only mostly GT characters with a big fan base (besides SSJ4 of course). Not a single GT villain or side character (besides her) made the list.

8. Vegito is MUCH more popular than Gogeta.

9. Goku Black is the most popular post-Z character.

10. We're gonna see more of Towa, Chronoa, Android 21 and Tapion in the future.

11. Vegeta being the most popular of all makes since, since he does get alittle more fanart and fan-fiction than Goku (who gets a lot over there himself).

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.
This.

Obviously its down to personal taste but I genuinely don't understand why Bardock and Paragus are in the top 10. I've never got what people saw in Broly either.

Goku, Yamcha, Krillin, Tien, Chiaotzu, Yajirobe, Gohan, Piccolo, Vegeta, Future Trunks, Android 18, Goten, Trunks and Majin Buu.
