Top 80 Best Episodes of Dragon Ball Z

These are my favorite episodes of Dragon Ball Z, respectively. I choose them not only based on emotional depth or developmental value... but also on the sheer ferocity and brutality that is found in each. If it's not on my list, then the fight just isn't as devastating or relentless... I've found that these represent the most bone-cracking, spine-breaking, and the grisly when it comes to the overall feel of the series; The series is fueled by these extreme episodes and it would have never been as severely action-packed and overwhelming if it were not for these episodes; without them, the series would just not have been the same. Maybe a list incorporating emotional moments would be nice also, but this list is derived to illustrate the most ruthless aspects of the series in its nitty, gritty, bone-cracking, back-breaking battles whilst amassing a glorious savage moral, yet maintaining and encompassing tremendous brutality.
