Yeah... that height chart has problems. I got so excited about seeing a new one that I didn't even pay any attention to whether or not it was any good. Seeing buff Roshi and regular Roshi in a single height chart was too amazing for me to not get excited about. Apparently he actually does grow in height.

Super made Dende his cell saga height and Mirai Trunks' hair blue. I don't trust anything they put out, frankly.
Also, bartek, you're in the wrong. You corrected board staff without bothering to Google the thing you were correcting. You may think it's dumb, but he used the official english name of the character. It's like if I corrected people that it should be Freeza. I may PERSONALLY refuse to recognize the dumb "Frieza" spelling because it's so stupid, but I have *no* right to correct others for using it.
Also, as for the annoying crack... Frankly, kettle meet pot.
This is a modified post I made a long time ago that I've updated a bit. I posted it in a different thread, so I wanted to copy and paste it here so I could find it again...
Jeice is about the same height as Goku. During the Namek Saga, Goku is perhaps 5'8". If you watch Vegeta's fight with Jeice in the anime or manga, Jeice is clearly a larger character than Vegeta, and if you use your imagination, you can kind of picture Goku fighting Vegeta, so he's somewhere around Goku's size, plus or minus an inch or 2.
Cooler is a little taller than Goku, perhaps 5'9".
Salza was actually taller than Cooler in his 4th form... Salza is probably a little shorter than Yamcha (taller than Goku) but not as built in stature (skinnier). (see M5's June 9, 2014 post with pics of Cooler's Squad for comparisons) Perhaps 5'10".
That puts Salza at almost Zarbon's height, as Zarbon was around Yamcha or Tien's height compared to Vegeta. Zarbon is probably about 6'0" or 6'1". (this is just a random note, not useful for this comparison)
Raditz was around 6'6", he was MUCH larger than the 5'7" Goku and 6'3"ish Piccolo (Piccolo's height increased as he aged in the series more than any other character, and in Saiyan Saga he was maybe 1 inch taller than Tien).
Nappa around 6'10" except in scenes where he was enormous for visual drama.
Ginyu I might place at around 6'11", because he looks larger compared to Goku if you imagine Nappa doing the same poses and such with Goku. I haven't done a full comparison analysis between Nappa and Ginyu yet, but I just feel like Ginyu has to be larger based on drawings of the entire Ginyu Force together.
So... if we compare Salza and Jeice to Neiz, Doore, Burter, and Recoome...
Jeice is shorter than Salza by perhaps 2 inches... and the top of his puffed up hair is at Burter's hips and Recoome's abs.
Salza is taller than Jeice by about 2 inches... and the top of his similarly puffy hair is at the bottom of Doore's pecs and Neiz's dick .
So the order would be...
Doore (probably just an inch or so over the height of Nappa, and much more beefy) which means he'd be about Ginyu's height Recoome (about an entire enormous Recoome head taller than Doore) Burter (his eyes can/could look over Recoome's head if Recoome was bald in most artwork, and sometimes he is shown even taller) Neiz (Burter's top of his head would probably reach just over the top of Neiz's shoulder, so he still has some of a long neck and a huge head over Burter's height)
I originally posted this here but I'm copy and pasting the post here since it is full of good info.
In spite of the fan art characters in that height chart you found, I rather like a lot of it unless I pay too close of attention to it. So here's something I have to mention. Going by official character heights and/or trying to make heights work is always going to be a problem. The official height for Krillin in Buu Saga is 5'0" which is ridiculous, because that would mean Goku's entire upper body and head take up only about 9 inches. So character scaling is more reliable, but also harder to describe without looking at reference pictures. That's why there are people like TDC who have tried to make reliable height charts, even though I don't always agree with his. I like his Krillin one.
Anyway, Cooler was definitely shorter than Salza, they have him way too large in that. He was literally about an inch taller than Goku. Because of hair, it can be useful to pay attention to the height/elevation of a character's chin when comparing two characters (at least if they have similarly sized heads).
Our height information in this thread is missing the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, which said that Goku was 5'7". So we need those heights added to this thread dragonballfigures.com/thread/334/official-character-heights . But anyway, Goku was 5'7" at the end of DB and in Buu Saga he was 5' 8.9" so I think it's a safe estimate to assume that in Namek Saga he was around 5'8", so somewhere between where they sized Jeice and Kuwi.
Here's some pics of Vegeta, Jeice, and Goku.
So, as you can see, Vegeta and Jeice are not the same size. Jeice was closer to Goku's size than Vegeta's size, especially bodywise. Vegeta was 5'4.6" in Buu Saga and I don't know if there's an "official" measurement for him earlier than that. I believe he was supposed to be about 5'2" or 5'3" in Saiyan Saga, so let's just assume in Namek Saga (and the Cooler movie) he's 5'3". Based on that, they have their "King Vegeta" as way too large, because their "King Vegeta" is who we know as Vegeta. He should not be much taller than their Frieza.
Frieza is a difficult character to size, because there's no official measurement that I know of. I would tend to thing that TDC's heights for him are pretty good.
His Cooler one looks great.
I think his Ginyu Force one has some problems. Specifically, I don't think any of them look like they are large enough compared to Goku. Ginyu in this looks like he is barely bigger than Raditz would be next to Goku, and that doesn't feel right.
In this one, I think Salza is too small, Doore is the closest to correct just still small, and Neiz isn't big enough.
I looked all over the internet, and I couldn't find the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai heights and weights of competitors anywhere. Maybe I have a file saved on my home computer from 10+ years ago? I'd need luck to find that.
Also, Photobucket is 100% down today for some reason. Tinypic as well.
Anyway, I was discussing this with someone on Facebook. I contend that Raditz and Perfect Cell were approximately the same height (at the top of their heads, not hair/spike things).
So let's establish some guidelines.
Like people have said (including me), assigning heights to DB characters is problematic because of inconsistency and an inch difference in height is less a "realistic" inch and more of a "relative" inch. In other words, Tien being 1.6 inches taller than Yamcha in real life would be hardly noticeable, but in the DB world, it's quite a difference.
Goku was 5'7" at the beginning of DBZ as he was at the end of DB during the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai. When he was measured during the Tenkaichi Budokai during Buu Saga (according to the link above), he was 5'8.9". So in the fight against Cell he was likely around 5'8".
Piccolo was only 8 years old when Raditz arrived and very short compared to how tall we associate him with being. He was barely taller than Tien and his body was much less muscular than Tien's. Tien was 6'1.6" and so Piccolo during this time period was likely 6'2" or 6'3".
Vegeta during the Saiyan Saga was around 5'3" if I remember correctly. He's the least consistent main character in the entire series as far as size is concerned thanks to DB Super. During this time period, he was very short compared to the average female character like Bulma. He was only a few inches taller than Krillin. So he's between Krillin's height and Bulma's height.
Perfect Cell's chin was at the top of 5'8" Goku's forehead in Cell Saga.
Raditz's chin was at the top of 5'7" Goku's forehead in Saiyan Saga. Raditz, like Vegeta, has an ENORMOUS forehead compared to the average character. Therefore, I would consider Raditz very similar to the height of Perfect Cell. His shoulders may not be as high as Cell's but his big head puts them at very close to the same height. Raditz is massively muscular and bulky compared to Piccolo, so he'd be somewhere in the middle between Tien and Nappa in terms of overall size. He's much bulkier than Cell, who is rather lean and in many scenes no bulkier than Goku. Raditz not being too greatly smaller than Nappa is backed up best by the flashback scene (see middle right of the collage) during the story Raditz told Goku about their Saiyan race. However, it is not backed up by the scene of the 3 kneeling in front of Frieza from the Bardock Special. I personally believe Nappa is oversized in that scene.
Based on this, I would place Raditz and Cell both at 6'5" to 6'6".
Nappa I am still going to place at approximately 6'10". Very slightly smaller than Captain Ginyu. The best reference stuff for him is scenes where he's standing with a lot of characters, like the one blurry manga scene in my collage.
So basically the order of heights (just a sample) for Saiyan Saga (if you threw Perfect Cell into that saga) would go:
Krillin Vegeta Chi Chi Bulma Goku Yamcha Tien Piccolo Raditz and Perfect Cell Nappa
And there'd be quite a size jump in 3 places. Between Goku and Yamcha... between Piccolo and Raditz/Cell... and between Raditz/Cell and Nappa.
I made a bunch of reference pics in a collage I got tired of working on. The image is huge if you want to download it or open it in a new tab or something for a better look.
Today I'm attempting to get super nerdy. I was curious about the height of Banan, the blue skinned, sunflower yellow haired soldier of Frieza's who, with Sui, bothers Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma on Namek just after they landed.
According to dragonball wikia, at least with regard to video games and the anime, there are others of his race with different coloring. Bun and Bund appear in Legend of the Super Saiyan on Super Famicon. Strock appears briefly with Ginyu when he's looking for recruits to the Ginyu Force. Banan appears in only DBZ episode 45 as far as I know, and the other appearances of people of his race are various and short. There's also some video game appearances. As far as appearance goes, he looks vaguely like Nappa. He certainly seems smaller than Nappa though.
Long story short, I believe he's a little taller than Raditz, but he's more beefy than Raditz. Banan has an unusually large head/face. He's not as big or beefy as Nappa. I'd place him at approximately 6'8".
And if Sui was capable of standing up straight, he'd definitely be taller than Vegeta. But because he doesn't, he is only a little taller, and he's about the same build as Vegeta. So basically he's slightly smaller than Kuwi/Cui in build but if he stood up straight he'd be about the same height. Because he is in a permanent squat I would place him at just being a little taller than Master Roshi. So I'm going to say 5'6". But standing as he does, he's more like 5'2" maybe. I'd have to really think about it, as I don't usually think about how tall Master Roshi is compared to other characters.
I was thinking about it some more, and here's how I think Sui, Roshi, Kuwi/Cui, Vegeta, Bulma, and Goku would scale together. Roshi and Bulma never changed height as far as I ever noticed (except when Roshi is drawn particularly stocky), so their art being from DB (Roshi's being from the DBGT-era movie Path to Power I think) doesn't make much of a difference. Vegeta's design changed so much over the course of DBZ that I had to use Saiyan Saga art for him. He's now drawn in that outfit much taller than he used to be.
Since Vegeta was drawn a little bit taller in Namek Saga than Saiyan Saga (heck, he was drawn slightly taller in the fight vs. Goku in Saiyan Saga compared to when he arrived), I decided to allow Recoome to show us how tall Vegeta looked and was drawn in Namek Saga. He was a lot less stocky with a better proportioned, more detailed face.
But anyway, my whole point was to show approximately how large Sui would have been, I guess. Pretty close to Kuwi/Cui's size. Little shorter, little less lean. Slightly larger than Vegeta in every way.
Based on other appearances of people who seem to be Sui's race, he'd be considered average height for one of Frieza's soldiers. Vegeta would be considered shorter than average and Kuwi/Cui slightly taller than average. Appule, Frogface, Sui, and Raspberry would be considered average soldier height I guess at being fairly similar in size. I think a good way to consider them would perhaps be that they are mostly 5'6" to 5'7", all taller than Bulma and most shorter than Goku by a slight amount. Blueberry and Banan are two of the few who are significantly larger. Blueberry is extremely wide and stocky, but I don't think too abnormally tall.
Based on some scenes with Bulma, and scenes where Vegeta was in Frieza's ship with multiple people of Blueberry and Raspberry's species/race... I'd guess that Blueberry is around 5'10" just with enormous features and very wide. He's not quite as tall or large as a character like Monster Zarbon. Zarbon is probably about 6'0" or 6'1". In his monster form, I believe he grew in size by quite a lot though.
