"I have one question though, can it feel fear? (ANDROID 19 replies no) Let’s fix that shall we? AAAAUUUGH!!! (Goes SSJ)"
— “Super Saiyan Swagger”

Vegeta (ベジータ, Bejīta) is the former prince of the near-extinct Saiyan race and is Goku's self-proclaimed arch-rival. He is the son of King Vegeta, the Baby Daddy of Bulma, and the father of Trunks. Due to his position as the prince of all Saiyans and being a Saiyan elite, arrogance and hubris are the air he breathes. After hearing about the Dragon Balls from Raditz's scouter, he travels to the planet with his partner, Nappa, in order to use them to gain immortality, so he could defeat Freeza. But after his defeat and repeated run-ins with the heroes, the Dragon Team, he moves from becoming a ruthless villain to more of an anti-hero.

Personality Edit

Vegeta is a prideful Saiyan, having a hard time accepting losses and always striving to better himself as a fighter so that he could become the strongest warrior alive. When he encountered Goku and became aware of his increasing strength, it only furthered his drive to become stronger. The rare occasion of his pride differing from just extending to him was when he was blasted away by Future Trunks who he admitted to himself to be proud of as he recovered from the blast, though he would admit that his rage had overcome him from furthering in the feeling.[1]

In some cases, he showed his high views of himself through inner monologues or in speaking to himself, as was the case after recovering from his losses to the Ginyu Force and Android 18. Vegeta believed himself to be not only a big deal but also God, demonstrating his cockiness to opponents such as Freeza, Android 19 and Cell.[2] His grandiose views of himself have backfired when used by opponents to mock him, as both Freeza and Cell did during their battles with him.

One of Vegeta's most redeeming qualities is his determination, which he shares with his rival Goku. No matter how many times he is bested in conflict, be they after a drawn out battle, such as his encounters with Freeza and Cyborg 18, or in a few minutes, similarly to his encounters with Recoome and Perfect Cell, he never faults in picking himself up from a loss and striving to do better, pushing his body as far as it can go in order to attain the strength to overcome his obstacles. This is also applicable to his mannerisms and characteristics, such as his continued speaking of a Super Saiyan despite continued opposition from Freeza,[3] claims that he is one of if not the strongest person alive despite events suggesting otherwise,[4] and near-refusal to back down in combat unless he is without a breath or deceased even when he loses confidence in his chances of winning.[5]

After defeats, Vegeta would typically express his frustration with either destruction or going off by himself, sometimes both. The defeat by Cell showed a rare occasion of him voicing his frustration to someone, Krillin, in not being able to best his opponent despite his extensive training.[6] Vegeta's sometimes bitter reactions to defeat are the result of his disappointment in his hard work amounting to less than he had anticipated, as was the case when he was bested by Cell and voiced this to Krillin.

Vegeta has a complex relationship with his deceased father, seemingly disliking him as he admitted to Yajirobe that he hated his father[7] and laughed when Piccolo mentioned that he was deceased,[8] but nonetheless was upset by Yajibore's insulting of him[7] and failed to find comedy in Freeza's recounting of killing King Vegeta.[9] He has a clearer view of his mother, taking offense whenever she was either invoked or insulted by his enemies, such as when she was brought up by Freeza,[3] Cui,[10] and Cell[4] (let it be noted that Cell was the only one who actually manage to anger Vegeta, since Freeza and Cui's comments didn't really hit the mark well).

Freeza dominated Vegeta's life for much of his early years through his rule, though Vegeta acknowledged that he would retain his evil sense of morality.[3] Vegeta knew throughout his youth that he was no match for Freeza but developed the confidence to face him on Namek once under the conviction that he had become a Super Saiyan,[11] a claim that angered Freeza to the point of killing him.[3]

Since the two first met, his rivalry with Goku has slowly began dominating his entire life. Though he was the stronger of the pair in their initial encounter, he was bothered by how someone with such a lack of intelligence could prove a match for him.[7] When the two met again on Namek, Vegeta showed bewilderment at Goku's strength and intelligence going hand and hand as he bested the Ginyu Force as he lamented what appeared to be a Super Saiyan.[5] Vegeta furthermore took interest in destroying Goku's body,[12] though his dislike for him mellowed out as he became interested in seeing Goku defeat Freeza to honor the deaths of Saiyans by his hands, calling him a Super Saiyan right before his death and appearing to him with frank instructions on what to do to combat the superior in strength adversary. As the two both remained on Earth for three years, Vegeta was annoyed by Goku's compliments of him,[13] and his lack of concern when he boasted that he was the stronger of the pair,[14] even showing disgust with Goku when he offered to help him.[15]

Vegeta's initial antagonism toward Goku has translated to his feelings toward Gohan, Goku's son, as Vegeta admitted that he only hit Gohan during an encounter on Namek out of pent up aggression directed toward his father.[16] Vegeta also sees Gohan as a "smartass"[9] and mocked what he perceived was his resemblance to Moe Howard.[16]

He has remained antagonistic toward Krillin, who he dislikes for being a weakling[13] and threatened the life of multiple times.[7][12] Vegeta called for the Ginyu Force to kill him once becoming annoyed with his constant revealing of information in fear,[17] and showed a lack of appreciation when he was saved by him and Gohan.[18] Even after Krillin removed the unconscious Vegeta from the battlefield, restored his health voluntarily with a Senzu Bean and cheered him up after Vegeta vented about his frustrations with not being able to defeat Cell, after which Krillin admitting his own faults, Vegeta still punched him, as he insulted him, completely ignoring all that Krillin had done for him recently.[6] Overall, Krillin has remained fearful of Vegeta due to his strength and knowing that Vegeta will attack him without a second thought if angered enough.

Vegeta looks down on Piccolo, mocking him in their first meeting for not having a penis[19] but being amazed by his newfound strength on Namek to the point of considering power levels to be a flawed concept or the effect of him being hit so hard by Freeza to the point of spurring an illusion.[11] Vegeta has mocked Piccolo for being without a father, pathetic and not comparing in strength to him, showing outright contempt upon discovering Piccolo had surpassed him.[20] Piccolo in turn sees Vegeta as a "prodigal asshole"[21] and does not view assisting Vegeta in battle as urgent as helping the others,[22] but can tolerate him.[6] After his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Vegeta confidently threatened Piccolo, believing both that he was superior in power and that he had fought him before, only to stand corrected on the last part. Piccolo did manage to get back at Vegeta for the back-and-forth by entering the Hyperbolic Time Chamber before him.[23]

Yamcha, being Bulma's prior significant other, has developed something of a one-sided feud with Vegeta. The two first met when Vegeta invaded Earth though as Vegeta correctly recalled, the two did not face each other. Yamcha considered them to have a fight despite this while Vegeta considered himself to have only faced Goku, disregarding Yamcha as the "scrub" killed by a Saibamen. Vegeta disrespected Yamcha's presence on the battlefield when he arrived to join the others in fighting the androids, questioning why he was even there.[24] Vegeta continued to attempt humiliating Yamcha, as he tried to get him to recall his death to the unaware Future Trunks, knowing that between Yamcha, Chaozu, Tenshinhan, Krillin, Master Roshi and himself, Yamcha had been killed by the weakest and least distinguished opponent.[4] Though Yamcha has openly challenged Vegeta, he is well aware of the significant power gap between the two and has resorted to pretending to not be scared[8] or acknowledging some other trait of Vegeta's in a credible light, such as his speed.[4]

Tenshinhan, another one of Goku's longtime allies and a fellow protector of Earth, has held a dislike for Vegeta seemingly since encountering him for the first time, though it only became apparent shortly before Future Trunks met with the group. Tenshinhan mocked Vegeta for his ambitions to become a Super Saiyan while he did not have the form at the time as well as his dismissing of Future Trunks as one while clearly in denial, in addition to boasting that he himself, a human and thereby incapable of becoming a Super Saiyan, might possibly become one himself.[13] Tenshinhan has made it clear that he enjoys seeing Vegeta be defeated,[25] and would even like for him to be killed.[6] Vegeta has merely retorted something else back, usually an obscenity.[13][26]

Because he differs greatly from Future Trunks, the alternate timeline version of his son, he butts heads with him as they have different agendas. Whereas Future Trunks wishes to stop the android threat at any cost, Vegeta seeks a challenge and made actions directly conflicting with Future Trunks' agenda, such as advocating that Gero not be found but instead challenged in the three years after the androids were finished[27] or allowing Cell to absorb Android 18.[28] They also have differing treatments of each other; Future Trunks has a begrudging care for his father while Vegeta is spiteful of him and makes no attempts to hide it, showing his disdain upon learning that he was his son,[29] mocking his physical appearance,[28] and downgrading his strength.[22]Yet, when Trunks is killed by Cell Vegeta in a rare moment shows anger at this and attacks cell without any regard for his safety. When Gohan berates Vegeta for losing his temper causing him to save Vegeta , an act that renders his arm broken he apologize.

Despite his overall ruthless, callous, and generally homicidal demeanor, Vegeta has been shown to be uncomfortable witnessing specific displays of brutality. This is most notable when he witnessed the Namekian refugees cannibalize Guru. This is ironic given Vegeta's often graphic and sickening imagination.

Abilities Edit

Attacks Edit

  • Galick Gun: Vegeta fires a purple burst of ki energy against his opponents. First used in his fight against Goku
    • Big Bang (Kind of) Attack: Vegeta causes an explosion. Used as a last resort against Goku, Krillin, and Gohan.

Transformations Edit

  • Great Ape: Like all Saiyans, Vegeta has the ability to transform into a giant ape thanks to the blutz waves of either a full moon, or a Power Ball. Vegeta's strength is power up 10x's, and still moves with the same speed as he did before. Also, Vegeta has full control over this form unlike Goku and Gohan. Vegeta used this form during his fight against Goku, but lost it after Yajirobe cut off his tail. According to one of the doctor's, they couldn't save the tail, permanently losing his ability to change into his Great Ape form.
  • Super Saiyan: A power up that increases a Saiyan's power 50x's it's base level. Vegeta unlocked his after enough bitching that he "wanna be a Super Saiyan." Later on, Vegeta can power up to this form at will. First seen during his fight against Android 19.
    • Second Grade Super Saiyan: An ascend level of normal Super Saiyan, Vegeta's power is increased, while gaining speed. Vegeta unlocked it during his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and was first seen using it during his fight against Semi-Perfect Cell, in which he displayed an overwhelming advantage over in terms of power. However upon reaching his Perfect form aside from the Final Flash, this form was completely overwhelmed by Cell in turn.

Running gags Edit

A few running gags include:

  • Being haunted and tormented by Ghost Nappa - to the point of screaming at him when no one else can see him
  • Being referred to as a bitch or being synonymous as one.
  • Being called "Vegena" by some people (a pun on Vagina)
  • Vegeta's general intolerance of the people around him- i.e. Nappa, Krillin, Goku, etc.
  • Vegeta's Super Saiyan speech (i.e. "You aren't dealing with the average Saiyan anymore, Freeza. He has risen up and become a legend etc."). It is during one of these that Freeza (who asked for it) kills him.
  • Someone referencing Vegeta's mother, Vegeta replying, "My mother's dead," and the person saying, "I know."
  • Unable to kill Goku.
  • His pink shirt. In every shot of him clad in said shirt where he was facing away from the camera, there would be words or phrases indicating femininity in bold, black letters printed on the back of it. These words/phrases, in order of appearance, read: "JUICY"; "DUM CUMPSTER"; "PULL MY HAIR"; "BLOWJOB PRINCESS"; and a picture of a rainbow.
  • Yelling "MINE!" repeatedly when he sees an opportunity for his own victory (Demonstrated when he interrupted Ginyu's moment of silence for Jeice's death, when he spots Porunga whilst Freeza is fighting Super Saiyan Goku, and when he ambushes Android 19 whilst the latter is draining Goku's energy)
  • Throwing dog treats at Guldo or severed heads.
  • A rival of Vegeta's saying 'Hi' and Vegeta ignoring them, and simply replying with 'Hi', usually resulting in a double take.
  • Metal Cooler kicking Vegeta in the dick.
  • A quirk of Vegeta's dialogue, particularly from the Android Saga onward, is that he rarely uses given names. For instance, he refers to Piccolo as "the Namekian", Trunks as "the boy", Bulma as "the woman", Yamcha as "the beta male", Mr. Popo as "black man", Krillin as "the bald one",Tien as "triclops", and Mrs. Briefs as "MILF." Goku, as in the original series, is exclusively named "Kakarrot." Ironically, two of the most obvious exceptions to this rule are Nappa and Freeza, both of whom are consistently referred to without nicknames.

TriviaEdit

  • He is an unrepentant asshole and proud of it.
  • Vegeta is a fan of the Scorpions song "Rock You Like a Hurricane" which plays when he goes on a bug killing rampage on Arlia. He later tries using the same one-liner on Freeza, but fails, noting that he should've realized it was "only a one-hit wonder."
  • Vegeta is the first, and as of now, one of three characters to say "fuck" uncensored in the series. He did this in The Best Laid Plans of Saiyans and Nameks. The other character was Semi-Perfect Cell while he was getting pushed into the ground by Tien's Tribeam. The more comical Canadian subtitles even make note of this. Then it was Gohan in Cell-Out Part 3 when Vegeta apologizes for trying to take on Cell when Gohan was going to take him on.
  • He enjoys throwing dog treats at Guldo. He later throws one at the decapitated head of Android 19 just after its destruction. Later throws one at Android 15 while he is holding his own severed head.
  • He apparently watches Space Hulu (Hulu except more "spacey"), as he calls Gohan "Moe Howard" after seeing his hairstyle and replies to Gohan how he knows about Moe Howard as a result of watching Space Hulu.
  • Much like his original anime counterpart, he often referred to himself as "the prince of all Saiyans", especially in the first season.
  • His Spirit animal is apparently a Namekian Crab named Morpheus. He has a Jamaican accent.
  • Vegeta's "Its Over 9000!!!" internet meme is particularly infamous on the internet which involved him screaming said line while crushing a scouter in his hand after reading Goku's rising power level. Ironically the abridged series itself made a point of ignoring or mocking this particular meme. The first time was in a teaser for the upcoming Season 1 finale in which he said "Its over 8000!" (Ironically the correct translation of the original line) to which Nappa complained that he didn't say it right (And Vegeta smugly retorted that he did.) The second is in the actual series itself. When Nappa blatantly goads Vegeta into saying the line, he replies that Goku's power level is only 1006. Nappa is summarily beaten by Goku, and Vegeta notes he had the scouter upside down. When Vegeta finally DOES deliver the line, it is completely deadpan, and he squashes his scouter with a bored grunt of "Rah." owing to the fact that Goku still isn't a threat to him. It wasn't until Kai Abridged that the line was finally delivered properly with Nappa also screaming alongside Vegeta...before Nappa gets killed.
  • He also has a nice ass (according to Bulma) and a Goku button that shouldn't be pushed
  • Vegeta is terrible at killing Goku, as referenced by Goku in Revenge of Cooler's Revenge: The Reckoning.
  • He doesn't know what condoms or soap are (And initially believed that soap was edible.) The latter is especially humourous as in an earlier episode while being imprisoned in an Arlian prison, Vegeta replies to Nappa telling him not to "drop the soap", as if he understood the reference.
  • Vegeta becomes a Super Saiyan by throwing a tantrum, like the original series. However, while in the original, he admitted that his frustration and hatred allowed him to transform, in TFS, he hides the fact by saying "Push ups, sit-ups and plenty of juice".
  • He apparently spends time playing video games with Nappa. There isn't as much animosity between the two now. He's attempted to play video games by himself as well
  • In the Team Four Star series "Renegade for Life", Vegeta will often ignore the game's instructions and, if at all possible, screw the main line and do what he wants, fulling his self-appointed role as a renegade. In the same series, he went temporarily insane from the game "The Stanley Parable" since the game robs him of any form of choice despite all his efforts to rebel against the Narrator, nullifying his renegade status. In one last act of rebellion, he jumps from a ledge to kill himself, exclaiming "RENEGADE FOR LLLLLLLLIFE!" (Ironically, assuming that TFS is playing the HD Redux, The Narrator would have mocked him for his attempt and simply restarted the game, deepening his insanity.)
  • As of the Team Four Star playthrough of Dragonball Xenoverse, Vegeta has 2 dicks. Which begs the question of which dick was kicked so much in the second Cooler movie.
  • Vegeta can scream so loud, Trunks can hear it 17ish years in the future, from another planet
  • Vegeta is the second character to call Bulma a "bitch", the first being Krillin.
  • Vegeta and Bulma share the same line: "Just take the compliment."
  • Vegeta is one of two non-deity characters to consider themselves God, the other being Cell.
  • Vegeta is the third character to be kicked of the lookout by Mr. Popo, the first two being Krillin and Goku.
  • Did we mention how much of an asshole he is?
  • Vegeta goes on to say that Broly's motivation is stupid, as he is motivated by a crying baby... even though Vegeta is as well.
  • TFS seems to love making fun of Vegeta even more than Toei, although there is one exception when Yamcha is treatened worse than Vegeta, and that Vegeta got "Yamcha'd" is when Yamcha asks, how is Vegeta's spine (being broken by Cell).
