Dragon Ball Z has a bit of a formula when it comes to villains. The franchise tends to recycle certain features when it comes to baddies, and fans will be the first to critique the anime for Dragon Ball Z is obviously a very heightened series that's gotten far away from the somewhat grounded place where the original series started.
