These are characters who could have turned out really awesome but then they were runined with bad writing ,underuse,etc

For me it will always be krillin.

@ownagepants: Honestly nearly all of the rookie 9 post timeskip became underused.

@ownagepants: I don't know. I think Krillin fell behind towards the end of DBZ but Toriyama said he was the most powerful human (excluding androids). I think lacking saiyan physiology made him kind of irrelevant though. I think the wasted potential gold has to go to Gohan. Stated from the start to have more power than Goku, yet is always, ALWAYS in Goku's shadow.

@Acer.: true I mean pre time skip they all got chances to show how awesome they are and after timeskip they were just forgotten about.

@ownagepants: I completely understand where your coming from, but for me she was just too good of a character to get rid off and she had a lot of potential as a character that she could have contributed to the story if the story went in a different direction with her.

@Erik: Always in Goku' shadow? True enough but Vegeta I say had the most of that by far Vegeta is the most real-to-life character in DBZ, He was the most reliable to human nature. As both Goku and Gohan had only two things going for them good guy and angry good guy, Akira totally ruined Vegeta' true strength. I mean he couldn't even beat one main villain in a movie, Akira was antagonizing Vegeta and even said he disliked his character... he was a total idiot with Vegeta.

Vegeta was always in Goku's shadow but he never showed any kind of wasted potential because of it. He just was always playing catchup.

@bigz007: I know right she was supposed to be powerful but other then unlock kenpachi's potential what did she do combat wise in the manga.

Nico Robin and Nami, wish Oda let them fight more

@ownagepants: I would love to see more of her, and I hope she isn't dead.

@Destinyheroknight: I agree with you there... Oda sure have a lot of characters on his disposal, so it's hard to use them all.

@bigz007:

Don't forget Magi's huge roster, too!

I probably add Coby from One Piece. After completing the Water 7arc in the anime last Sunday, I saw Coby again. He got stronger. It would be interesting to see his progress. He mirrors Luffy a bit.

@ImDictatorBowDown: Agreed i expected chad to be a major character but he did pretty much nothing the whole series and orihime talked about being a fighter which i thought meant she would unlock a hidden power but she just gets captured and all that is forgotten about.
