Dragon Ball Power Tiers

Post by Super Murjin » Tue Jul 07, 2020 7:55 pm

Hey,

been working on this power scaling list for the last 2 or 3 years. I used Toriyama's 1-15 power scale from 2013. Might be a little more helpful understanding how and where the warriors from the dragon ball universe stack up against each other.


This is using the levels only from the Dragon Ball manga, Dragon Ball Super manga, the Dragon Ball OVA (2008), Battle of Gods, Resurrection 'F', Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Dragon Ball Minus, Jaco the Galactic Patrolman ..... anime is excluded. Each level is considered a tier of power. So for example, tier 10 excludes Beerus, Vegetto Super Saiyan Blue, Broly Full Power Super Saiyan, etc. But that does not mean that they are at the same strength, there would be different levels of power within a tier. I'm curious what the fanbase thinks about this.

∞. Tori-Bot

∞. Zeno, Zeno (future), Zalama

?. Grand Priest

15. Whis, Vados, Cognac, Awamo, Marcarita, Mojito, Cus, Cukatail, Korn, Martinu, Campari, Sour

14.

13.

12.

11. Goku UI, Jiren (Full Power), Merus, Moro (7-3 absorbed/Angel Power/Earth absorbed)

10. Beerus, Champa, Sidra, Iwen, Helles, Mosco, Quitela, Arak, Liquir, Rumsshi, Belmod, Gene, Broly SSJFP, Vegetto SSB, Gogeta SSB, Moro (7-3 absorbed), Jiren

09. Goku UIO, Moro (Full Power), Vegeta SSBE

08. Merged Zamasu, Broly SSJ, Goku SSB(Perfected), Vegeta SSB(Perfected)

07. Goku SSB, Vegeta SSB, Golden Frieza, Goku Black SSR, Toppo (Aura of a God), Broly (Wrathful), Goku SSJ (Aura of a God)

06. Goku SSG, Vegeta SSG, Yamoshi SSG, Hit, Saganbo (w/ Moro’s full magic boost), Good Buu (after unlocking Dai Kaioshin’s power), Moro (Magic Restored) Goku Black SSJ (powered-up)

I like this, it's a nice attempt with the old Toriyama scale.

I see for the Keflagate you chose to lowball her instead of bringing Gohan up, I prefer the other option but I can see why. After all, half of her was an almost KO'd Kale who was running on fumes.

However I do have to question Gogeta not being a 11 Tier, and same goes for 7Moro3. While I can buy he wasn't already on a league of his own before, I wholeheartdly believe he is now. Well, not just his own, but also Gogeta Blue, UI and Jiren's.

Also, I believe base Broly should be at least one tier above base Goku and Vegeta. I know at some point he started tapping on the ohzaru power but still he easily forced Vegeta to use more and more power. And to me, ToP Hit is already blue tier. One could argue if he is 6 or 7 tier, considering he was fighting alongside Perfect Blue vs Jiren, but definitely stronger than SSG.

And boy, am I really that low?

I was on the fence whether SSB Gogeta/Vegetto & Moro/7-3 should be either a tier 10 or a tier 11.

Per the manga, i was trying to figure out how much stronger Hit became. He said he didn't need the Time-Skip anymore, but did that mean he became Super Saiyan Blue level? Might have to re-read it again.

It's a work in progress :D

I have a feeling the Dragon God, Zalama is more powerful than Zeno. Only speculation, of course.

I totally forgot about Zalama. I just put him on the same level as the Zenos (infinity)

What about the Kaioshins though? They're probably between 1 and 2.

There’s no way Zalama is more powerful than Zeno since Zeno already overrided Zamasu’s immortality wish.

Zeno is on a tier of his own and the supreme being of the Dragon Ball world.

Conversely, Super Shenlong was also able to undo Zeno's doing. The fact that Zeno has the ability/technique to erase an Universe doesn't actually make him strong in terms of combat skill/power, which I think this thread is going for, correct me if I'm wrong though.
Going by Whis' statement in the anime version, he isn't even a fighter, which puts him below almost everyone, he's probably as strong as a regular human (a regular human with the erase technique is still a regular human). Also going by Whis' statement in the manga version, Daishinkan is the strongest fighter, so he's the top tier.

But hey, I couldn't help but notice Zarama is included here. Was it ever stated his power?

Zeno only has an op hax which allows him to erase anything he wants. As a fighter he is indeed very weak (Goku was easily able to lift him from the ground) and slow (he couldn't follow Dyspo's movements in the ToP).

Zalama would have to be very strong because he created the Super Dragon Balls, which can grant any wish imaginable. Even the Destroyers couldn't erase Zamasu once he got immortality from the Super Dragon Balls. Thus it can be inferred that Zalama would at the very least be above the Gods of Destruction.
They take what they want by savagery and force. Their so-called society is based on nothing else. They possess neither justice nor order... They were gifted with life, brains capable of wisdom, yet they waste them completely. Should these gifts not be taken back?

Nice list, but seeing the gap from 15 to 10 is huuugee . Also Meerus being 4 levels above beerus seems too much.
Meerus is more suited in 11 or 12 for being a apprentice angel.

I was not to sure where to put Merus, i guess you are right, since he is a trainee, he probably would be much lower than what i originally posted him at (14), very likely more on the level of Ultra Instinct Goku and Full Power Jiren.

I hope we get a better idea how strong he is in the coming months, or maybe in the new arc.

It would be nice to know how much more powerful Grand Priest is compared to the other 12 angels including Merus.

Cool but I feel this lost falls apart in the lower stuff. Vegito and super Buuhan in the same tier? That's just one of many things.

I'm assuming the specific tiers aren't ordered by you and if that's the case this is a fairly accurate power tierlist, but this is where you lost completely lost me.

Berserk LSS Kale, who defeated Golden Frieza (SSB tier character according to you), overwhelmed Perfected SSB Goku (only to power up further after), and essentially fodderized the entire tournament, is in the same level of power as Super Saiyan fucking 2 Vegeta according to you. And this isn't even mentioning the fact that you put her MUCH stronger fusion above her in the same league as Final Form Freeza (post-training) and suppressed Toppo, despite KALE defeating Golden Freeza and knocking FP Toppo across the arena with one punch.

The rest of the problems I have with this tierlist, like FP Toppo supposedly only being SSB tier according to you despite him defeating Perfected SSB Goku and stalemating Perfected SSB Vegeta, could just be a byproduct of you attempting to create a tierlist out of this random scale Toriyama created that isn't in any way accurate or worth taking into consideration.

I put this together myself.Based it off of the Battle of God's 6, 10, 15 comment by Toriyama.
I only placed characters in their respective teir group, i didn't rank them from strongest to weakest within a teir, that would be way too much work and would requiring way more time and guessing haha.

I may have to revise where Super Saiyan Blue/Perfected stands ...... or like you where saying about Toppo, maybe bump him up when he's fighting more serious.

I figured Kefla SSJ was powerful but no more powerful than Golden Frieza nor Goku Super Saiyan Blue. From what i got in the manga is that they didn't take her seriously and she took them by surprise. No different than what we see in the past, like when Krillin and Kid Gohan had moments to shine against their first encounter with Frieza. Or even Goku Super Saiyan God landing a few punches vs Beerus. We know Beerus was holding back and could have killed Goku Super Saiyan God with ease.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sure this list will continue to change as time goes on.
