why didnt these characters beat a main villain not alot of side villains but a main one 
if they didnt get one in the series they should of got one in the movies 
have piccolo beat lord slug or a frieza have vegeta beat cell or broly these are just some of the examples i thought should have happened

because goku is the main character
 
 
formula of shonen enemy
 
main character is the one who beats main enemy/strongest enemy of that time

Piccolo got his butt kicked on Namek.  He had some cool moments but it turned out the bad guy was just toying when him and once he stopped, Piccolo got instapwned.  I think his time to shine was during Dragon Ball and not DBZ. 
 
Vegeta has a lot of cool fights though.  He's not Goku but he kicks ass all throughout DBZ.

Piccolo vs Android 17 is one of the best fights in all DBZ

Even if they didn't have that big moment that Goku and Gohan had. They still had lots of cool moments that put them above Goku and Gohan. Better personalities, and just more badass all round. You dont need to defeat the maiin villian to be considered epic.

@Yoshimitsu:
true but thats still weak dbz had alot of villains would you have been mad if lets say piccolo beat lord slug or vegeta beat android 20 or bojak

@ktarinze:  Im not really fussed on whom beats who. Beating someone does not make a character awesome. Vegeta had a hand in defeating the final villain in the series, was the main villain for one arc.

They both had amazing fights, but Vegeta should have killed cell.

Piccolo fighted equal with C17, and before that, he fighted and almost outsmarted and killed Cell, no mention to the Dr. Gero whom he kicked ass earlier. Eventiually, he was the only one who had a technique able to hurt Radditz. 

Vegeta destroyed C19, but his "ego trip" prevent him to destroy Cell when he could.

Vegeta had a lot of moments, even more than any other character than Goku I believe. Giving any more moments would make him the main character.  
 
Piccolo on the other hand was kind of neglected. Although I may be a little biased on it since he is my favorite character I believe he wasn't used properly in Dragon Ball Z although to me he was fine during the Saiyan and Namek Saga. Yamcha and Krillin seriously needed more screen-time on Dragon Ball Z.

Piccolo was nonexistent in the Buu saga, all he did was lead Super Buu around Kami's looks out. That was all Piccolo did against him lame.

@Manami: Piccolo became a babysitter during the Buu Saga...
