1. Zeno

Series: Dragon Ball

King Zeno is the supreme god who dominates all the universes and supervises the Kaio, the Kaio gods, the gods of destruction, and the angels.

He is feared by all, by his extraordinary and omnipotent power. Despite everything, he has a very childish and very happy character. He is a fairly impartial character who can sport a cold, expressionless gaze at times when something displeases him, which does not fail to immediately cool his interlocutors.
