Why Krillin is the strongest human character in Dragon Ball? Well is because Krillin is not an ordinary human.
Many Dragon Ball fans have come up with their own theories. However, in this post, we are going to explain and give good reasons why Krillin is the strongest human in Dragon Ball.
Krillin otherwise known as Kuririn has been one of the foundation characters along with Son Goku back in the Dragon Ball days.
Goku was Krillin’s number one rival and vice-versa back in Dragon Ball until Dragon Ball Z started.
Even though Krillin was a human, he was not an ordinary human in Dragon Ball. Goku on the other hand was an alien (Saiyan) but still got outperformed by Krillin at times back in the anime.
So, the real question is why Krillin is the strongest human character?
Well, it all started when Krillin back in Dragon Ball tried to outperform kid Goku. Goku was Krillin’s first rival when they both trained under Master Roshi.
Why Krillin is The Strongest Human
The reason why Krillin is the strongest human character in Dragon Ball is that he trained under Master Roshi, Trained with Goku, and got his potentials unlocked.
For a young Monk, Krillin had a power level that was far greater than any normal human.
Krillin’s power level before he died was 1700 and when he was on Planet Namek, his potential and power level grow over 10,000.
That is greater than when Goku arrived from King Kai’s planet to face off against Vegeta and Nappa in the Saiyan Saga.
Is Krillin The Most Powerful Human?
Krillin is the strongest human character in Dragon Ball up until Dragon Ball Z ended. It was not until the reincarnation of Majin Buu known as Uub who dethrone Krillin as the strongest human alive in Dragon Ball Z.
Krillin stood up against villainous characters such as Perfect Cell, The Ginyu Force, Frieza, etc knowing he could not win.
A regular human power level in Dragon Ball was 2 and Krillin had a power level over 10,000 on planet Namek.
As for Dragon Ball Super, Krillin’s power level is unknown because power level is not a factor when it comes to super.
However, we can look at one of the strongest character (s) Krillin fought in super to have an idea of how strong he has become since Dragon Ball Super.
The last and most intense fight Krillin had was with Goku.
This was during Dragon Ball Super before the tournament of power started.
Goku was looking for strong as well as smart characters to help fight for the survival of their universe.
Goku spared Krillin in battle, turned Super Saiyan Blue, and charged up a full power Kamehameha wave to engage in a beam struggle with Krillin. Who won? Goku of course lol.
So, we could say that since Krillin could put up a little fight against a full power Kamehameha wave from Goku.
We know that Krillin as a human has gotten ways storing than when he was on planet Namek and kicked Perfect Cell, but not as strong as a Super Saiyan.
What Makes Krillin the Strongest Human?
What makes Krillin the strongest human in Dragon Ball is that he has been in almost every fight with Goku and Vegeta. While Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, and Gohan have all gotten transformations.
Krillin did not have any sort of transformation and can still keep up in somewhat past with characters like Gohan and Goku in super.
One of the main reasons why Goku choose Krillin as his teammates for the tournament of power is he knows Krillin is a strong human. Not only smart but sensible and wise which is a list of prerequisites Krillin has.
Who is stronger in Dragon Ball Super, Krillin, or Tien?
There was a recent interview done about Krillin, Tien, and Master Roshi with Akira Toriyama, he clearly stated: “Krillin is the strongest human currently in the world of Dragon Ball, followed by Master Roshi and Tien Shinhan”.
Krillin stopped his training for a long time in Dragon Ball, however, Tien continued to train. You would think that Tien would have the edge over Krillin since he stopped his right training?
Nevertheless, from Tien’s introduction up until Tien’s death in the Saiyan Saga, Tien Shinhan was the strongest human character.
However, when he died fighting Nappa, Krillin had surpassed Tien through intense training and had his latent power awakened/unlocked by the elder Guru.
Also, keep in mind that the Z Fighters (Yamcha, Tein, and Chiaotzu) who fought with the Ginyu Force on King Kai’s planet were filler.
Krillin has remained stronger than Tien over the years since Dragon Ball Super. However, Krillin’s power level is not much higher than Tien’s power level, but it’s enough to give Krillin the edge in a fight with Tien Shinhan.
Krillin is the strongest human fight since Dragon Ball. However, when Majin Buu got reincarnated into Uub. Krillin now becomes the second strongest human fighter in Dragon Ball Z.
