While they are not the gods and goddesses themselves, they do serve as their agents in the material world, and are given power suitable for that purpose.

** Yes, some of these are quite debatable. (Fey, for example, is a powerful but still SquishyWizard at her current level of development, and while Sara has her own cult already her physical powers are basically on the level of a hypothetical super-[[Creator/HPLovecraft Shoggoth]].) On the other hand, Whateley is also currently including the teenage hosts of the setting's actual Greek pantheon among its students -- greatly weakened by their lack of modern-day worshippers, but very much the real deal complete with their old attitudes.

Added DiffLines:

** The New Olympians are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: the Greek Dodekatheon (the primary gods of Olympus), stuffed into the bodies of teenaged mutants. While their power is only a tiny fraction of what it once was, they are still very much the real deal. It has been mentioned that other deities are around as well, such as Belisarius, a minor Roman war god now passing himself off as the superhero 'Legionaire'.

** Out of the main heroes, Goku fits the best. His NighInvulnerability, SuperStrength, and SuperSpeed have been an integral part of his character since the start of the series. He's also displays [[MindOverMatter limited telekinetic]], {{telepathy}} through physical contact, can [[CameBackStrong growing stronger from near-death]], [[PowerCopying learn abilities after only seeing them a few times]], become immune to techniques because he knows how to counter them, and can teleport anywhere he wants as long as he can sense energy, including the afterlife. He even becomes a literal god in ''Battle of Gods'' and [[UpToEleven even goes one step beyond it]].

** For his time, Frieza was considered the closest thing to a physical god to the point that ''Vegeta'' didn't want to even consider fighting him until he gained immortality. His telekinesis rivaled those of the Kais and he has extreme survivability that allows him to live in space and survive with most of his body missing. What makes Frieza really scary, however, is that he was born powerful. When he did set his mind to becoming stronger he became the second strongest villain the series and that's if you count Beerus as a villain. If Frieza had Goku's work ethic, he would have been truly invincible on Namek.

** Piccolo is also a good fit. He already had the arsenal of mystical abilities from his Namekian heritage, including a HealingFactor, [[MindOverMatter limited telekinesis]], {{telepathy}}, ExtendableArms, [[size shifting Sizeshifter]], and the ability to [[TheAssimilator assimilate]] fellow Namekians to get stronger. Not to mention he ends up becoming the strongest Namekian period, even bestowing a "Super Namek" status. But he fits best when he fuses with Kami, who served as a guardian overlooker god of Earth, and takes his place for a while. It's particularly notable that Piccolo is the only one of the main heroes to overshoot the impossibly strong Saiyans on two occasions, even after [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] was introduced.

** Majin Buu, an EldritchAbomination so powerful that he killed off most of the Kais. He has the most powerful regeneration in the series (capable of returning [[FromASingleCell from a single atom]]), has powerful [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], VoluntaryShapeshifting, ability to turn [[BalefulPolymorph anyone into anything else]] (usually some form of confectionery which [[ManEater he eats]]), PowerCopying, limitless stamina, absorption of others to acquire their strength and abilities, can annihilate a planet's population without destroying the actual planet, can blow up something 10 times bigger than the Earth using minimal power, and [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleportation]] which he copied from a god. He can also break dimensions just by screaming.
** While there have been various gods appearing in the series, Beerus the BigBad of TheMovie ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of the Gods]]'', arcis a ''god''-god, the [[GodOfEvil God of Destruction]] to be exact, and as literal as the trope gets. He's stated to be capable of destroying ''entire galaxies'' and his power exceeds Goku's to the point he can [[CurbStompBattle curbstomp]] his Super Saiyan 3 form with a [[FingerPokeOfDoom finger]]. Goku needs to become a God himself in order to stand a chance against him, and even then Beerus only got a good workout.
** [[spoiler: Whis, [[UpToEleven who is more of a god than even Beerus]]. On a scale of 1 to 10, the author rates him a ''15''. He is also Beerus' teacher and have the power to rewind time by three minutes. Whis can literally be called a God of a God]].
