10 Best Dragon Ball Z Fights

9. Vegeta vs Android 19

Android Saga

Goku is often the center of attention in Dragon Ball Z, so we had to make sure to highlight those moments where the other fighters stepped up to win a battle. One of the best examples is found in the Android Saga as Vegeta battles with Android 19.

When the Androids first appear, they seem to be a force that cannot be stopped. They drain the power of their victims, and are impossible to track. Up until this point, the fights with them were all very brief, and always in favor of the Androids. All that changes when Vegeta finally appears, and surprises everyone by going Super Saiyan for the first time. He promptly demolishes Android 19, who simply can’t compete with the power of a Super Saiyan.

It’s Vegeta’s cold and nearly sadistic nature that truly make the fight memorable. He toys with Android 19, trying to scare it and demoralize it, knowing that the Android simply doesn’t stand a chance. It’s a good reminder to fans that Vegeta was at one point the villain of the series, and still had a long way to go at this point in the timeline before he would be considered a hero.
