In Dragonball the series keeps increasing power levels. Most of the truly powerful characters though are aliens or only part human. Usually in a fight all of the Z Warriors are taken down at some point but it always seems like Krillin is able to fight longer than any of the other humans. So is he the strongest actual human currently on Earth in the Dragonball Z Universe?
Krillin was the strongest human in Dragonball but not in Dragonball Z. The difference between the two periods is one is when Goku was a kid, and the other was when he found out he was a Saiyan, etc.
During the Underworld tournament, held by Grand Kai,there was one human, Olibu, who reached the finals of the previous Underworld tournament.
In conclusion, Olibu was the strongest human fighter on Earth.
Dragonball series: Strongest living human was Krillin
DragonBall Z: Strongest Living Human was Krillin; Strongest Human was Olibu; Strongest Initial Human was Android 18
DragonBall GT: Strongest Human was Uub
Krillin is the strongest because in the Cell story arc he flys in and kicks Cell right in the face. Plus, Krillin's power level is far beyond any human's power level. He gained all his strength through training and hard work. Anyone else pales in comparison to Krillin's extreme work ethic. Krillin wasn't wished strong by some Dragonball bologna. He became strong by working out. May all of us learn a lesson from this.
Since the Inclusion of Dragon Ball Super Uub is no longer Canon, unless he appears again on the new manga.
Dragon Ball GT is not Canon also.
Using Current Cannon Only, and also humans currently alive.
In The Dragon Ball Movie Frieza Resurection whe see 2 pure humans fighting against frieza henchmen. Tenchinham and Krillin. Tenchinham has never stopped training in his life. While Krillin in fact took some breaks from it. He has a family now.
I will say that Tenchinham is stronger than Krillin.
Tenchinham was able to fight againts cell second form for a little bit of time.
Krillin didnt even try.
Krillin might seem stronger, since he has seen more screen time than Tenchinham, but if both of them had to fight each other, Tenchinham extra eye plus dedication would be Krillins Downfall.
Krillin is the strongest human obviously; Akira Toriyama, creator of db, dbz, dbgt, etc. has stated this multiple times in the series. He posses the strongest attack in the series, Destructo Disk, able to kill anything. A fight with a Saiyan would've been over in less than one minute if Krillin had thought of it sooner. But then again where would be the suspense of the fight? Goku is the main character anyways so they gave him most of the credit. (A little too much in my opinion)
yes krillin is the strongest human ever, tien shinhan comes close to krillins power but krillins is still greater, the only pure human that was ever stronger then krillin was uub, after he was trained by goku in dragonball gt. but then when ubb he was fighting baby in dragonball gt he was about to die so majin buu (fat buu) fused with ubb and then he was known as majuub. after that he was no longer a pure human so krillin once again became the strongest pure human ever in the dragonball z universe.
