trained as hard as he could for seven years, there was still a gap between Goku's power and his. Then Gohan begins to fight Dabura. During the fight between Gohan and Dabura, Vegeta and Goku had an argument about how to best handle the Babidi/Majin Buu threat. Dabura retreats, saying that there is a different fighter who is more powerful. They are confused - Supreme Kai says that Dabura is the most powerful Majin. Suddenly, Vegeta begins acting strangely, screaming that something invisible is attacking him. Supreme Kai informs the others that Babidi is trying to take over Vegeta's mind, and they encourage him to fight back: but it is too late. Vegeta is overwhelmed by Babidi, and is transformed into a much more powerful stage, Majin Vegeta. Babidi orders his new apprentice, Majin Vegeta, to destroy Goku, Gohan and Supreme Kai, but he refuses. He says he will only fight Goku. [1]Majin Vegeta battles Super Saiyan 2 Goku

Babidi is surprised by Majin Vegeta's ability to fight his mind control, but obediently transports the three fighters and Supreme Kai back to the World Martial Arts Tournament. Majin Vegeta eager to fight Goku, blows up part of the spectator stands to convince Goku to fight him. Goku eventually agrees. Supreme Kai tries to get in the way of the two Saiyans' feud, but backs down when Goku threatens to blast him if he gets in the way (to the surprise of Vegeta). Goku and Majin Vegeta then are teleported to a secluded mountain area, and fight. Majin Vegeta revealed to Goku that he deliberately let Babidi to control him in order to allow his evilness to resurface, which would allow Vegeta to fight Goku as he once was, ruthless and unencumbered by emotion. After that, Majin Vegeta and Goku both power-up to Super Saiyan 2, with power levels far greater then Gohan's when he fought Super Perfect Cell; and then Goku and Majin Vegeta fight furiously, with each fighter having their glorious moment after one another.

[4]Vegeta fights against Majin BuuAdded by Beadtmdc

Vegeta was able to fight evenly with Goku, (which caught the latter off-guard on a few occasions). Throughout the battle, Babidi is drawing off the energy spent by Goku and Majin Vegeta and using it to try and revive the sleeping Majin Buu. Eventually, Goku calls a halt to the fight, as he senses Majin Buu's extraordinary power, and knows he has been released. When Goku turns his back to get out the last senzu bean and split it between him and Majin Vegeta to stop Majin Buu, Majin Vegeta attacks and knocks him out. Majin Vegeta takes the Senzu Bean and goes to fight Majin Buu by himself: he feels that he owes Goku for the destruction wrecked during the Cell Games, as it was his fault Semi-Perfect Cell absorbed Android 18. Majin Vegeta wants to repay his debt by saving the Earth, as he also believed that Gohan was dead at the time. [5]Vegeta sacrifices himself in an attempt to kill Majin Buu

Added by Beadtmdc

Majin Vegeta fights Majin Buu, but cannot win. He attempts many blows on Majin Buu, but the pink monster seems invincible. In the end, Majin Vegeta uses a Self Destruct technique and kills himself in an attempt to kill Majin Buu in a nuke-like explosion. At the end all that is left of him is his body turned to stone which falls to the ground and leaves a few broken bits of his stone body, which quickly scatter. This technique fails, as Majin Buu regenerates from the pieces of him which are left. Everyone finds out about Vegeta's sacrifice, and mourns on the Saiyan Prince's demise. When Bulma and Yamcha wished back everyone who died after the World Tournament, Vegeta did not come back due to the fact that he had already been wished back once before (during the Frieza Saga).

"The Saiyan prince will not fall again!!!"— Vegeta as he prepares to attack Super Buu

Later on in the series, Vegeta is given the chance of another shot at Majin Buu by King Yemma which Vegeta accepts. He returns to Earth - unfortunately, he's still dead. He finds Goku (now brought back to life, thanks to one of Supreme Kai's ancestors) who tells him that everyone has been killed or absorbed by Majin Buu. Majin Buu was now many times more powerful than when Vegeta first fought him. As a result, Goku asks Vegeta to put on one of the Potara Earrings so that they can permanently fuse their bodies and minds together and fight as one. Vegeta denies Goku's offer, and tells him that he knows about Goku again surpassing him, furious that he had found and reached the new Super Saiyan 3 stage. Vegeta got angry at Goku for holding back in their fight before because Vegeta would not have had to sacrifice his own life if he had known that Goku's true power rivaled that of Majin Buu, and thus he initially rejects the offer. The new Majin Buu, now called Super Buu w/Gohan, then confronted Goku and Vegeta. [6]Vegito, the result of the Potara Fusion between Goku and Vegeta

Added by Beadtmdc

In the anime, fighting at Super Saiyan 2, Goku and Vegeta were absolutely no match for him. They were both being completely dominated. As Buu was coming down with a finisher (which never took place in the manga, as the following dialogue is spoken prior to Buu catching up to them), Goku mentions the fact that Bulma has been killed, and Trunks and the remaining Z Fighters have been absorbed. Vegeta decides to go along with the plan. Then when Vegeta agrees to fuse with Goku he explains they would be stuck together forever. Seeing he had no other choices, Vegeta agreed to fuse, even if it means being stuck with Goku forever, because he wants to avenge his family's death and to stop Super Buu. Vegeta then agrees with Goku, and they fuse to become Vegito. Vegito fights Super Buu w/Gohan absorbed. The fused Saiyan, in the normal Super Saiyan form, is far stronger than even the mass-absorbed Super Buu, easily able to beat him even after be ing turned to coffee-flavored jawbreaker. However, Vegito realizes that he cannot destroy Super Buu because his friends and family have been absorbed into Super Buu's body and allows himself to be purposely absorbed after putting up a barrier so that he may rescue them. The strange circumstances within Super Buu cause the fusion to separate and Goku and Vegeta find themselves back in their own bodies. Vegeta, stating that nothing is worth being fused with Goku forever, crushes the Potaras to powder without hesitation. Goku and Vegeta fight their way through Super Buu's body to the brain (however, in the manga, they appear directly in the brain just as the other absorbees were), where they find not only Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Piccolo but also the original fat form of Majin Buu. [7]Vegito attacks Buu

Added by Beadtmdc

Vegeta recalls (having seen these events in the afterlife) that at some time in the past, Majin Buu split into his good and evil sides. The evil side absorbed the good side, Majin Buu. Goku and Vegeta fight a "thought-form" of Super Buu inside the brain, and get badly beaten. Super Buu's power had tremendously been decreased in comparison to when he fought Vegito. However, he was still much stronger than both Goku and Vegeta (the former of whom states that Buu would kill them easily if they were to go out unfused), and to make matters worse, (exclusively in the anime) inside Buu's head the monster's very thoughts became reality. Super Buu was about to destroy Goku when Vegeta distracts him by threatening to tear the fat Majin Buu out of the pod he was trapped inside. Super Buu gets really scared and frightened at what Vegeta is about to do, and begs the Saiyan prince to stop, saying, "If you tear those attachments, I won't be me anymore," which only seemed to increase Vegeta's interest in ripping them. Vegeta then pulls the pod, causing the Super Buu thought-form to dissolve, and he and Goku then escape. They take their sons, and Piccolo with them. Once outside, they see that Super Buu's form is changing again. He morphs back into Kid Buu, his original form before he absorbed Southern Supreme Kai and, the benevolent leader of the Supreme Kais, the DaiKaioShin. The new Buu, Kid Buu, was the original, said-to-be pure evil form of Majin Buu. A form that is nothing but pure evil. Seeing he was originally powered by the destruction of planets by the saiyans.

The final battle[8]EditEdit

Main article: Kid Buu Saga

"What's wrong, leaving so soon...? You're no warrior, you're just a mindless freak of nature, a big wad of spit out chewing gum! Is this what you want? Well, is it? I don't think so. You're scared, aren't you? Go ahead and run away."— Vegeta taunting Kid Buu

[9]Vegeta attacks Kid BuuAdded by Beadtmdc

Kid Buu decides to destroy the earth in his wake with his Planet Burst. Vegeta and Goku have a small conversation afterwards, with Vegeta making fun of Goku because he was so worried but he just shrank. Goku and Vegeta cannot stop Kid Buu's horrible power, and the two Saiyans fly quickly to try and reach the now-free absorption victims, but Goku makes a detour and picks up Mr. Satan, the young Namekian healer Dende, and Mr. Satan's pet Labrador puppy, Bee. There is no time to save Gohan, Goten, Trunks or Piccolo as the Kid Buu's attack was speeding towards them and suddenly Kibito Kai appears using Instantaneous Movement to transport himself, Goku, Vegeta, and the three others to the Sacred World of the Kais. Vegeta blames Goku for the needless death of their sons. They watch through a crystal ball and see that Kid Buu is destroying planet after planet in search of them. Kid Buu was aware they escaped, and as result decided to hunt them down. Goku and Vegeta decide it can't go on, and power up to entice him to come to the sacred planet to fight them. [10]Vegeta, as a Super Saiyan 2, injured while fighting Kid Buu

Added by Beadtmdc

Kid Buu answered their call, and quickly made himself visible at the planet.After playing a quick game of rock-paper-scissors to decide who faces Kid Buu first, Goku gets to fight first. Exclusively in the anime, he powers up to a Super Saiyan 2, and is easily dominated. He then powers up to a Super Saiyan 3, and evenly fights the psychotic demon. However, Kid Buu seems to have a slight advantage over Goku as the fight progresses due to Goku's constantly depleting energy supply. Goku fights in his Super Saiyan 3 stage for a while, and as a result loses a colossal amount of energy. He starts losing so much power he eventually collapses when he tries to fire the powerful Kamehameha attack. Vegeta steps in and fights for a period of time, but cannot match Kid Buu in power. Goku recovers in the nick of time and begins fighting again at his full strength. Vegeta goes through a long flashback sequence, remembering how he met Goku and everything that's happened since then - he thinks about their different attitudes to their families, about Goku's friends, and most of all about their strength. He finally comes to terms with his rivalry with Goku and acknowledges him as the best as Goku fights for pure reasons and not for his own personal gain. He calls Goku "Number #1" — it is Goku who will defeat Kid Buu. [11]Vegeta vs. Kid Buu in a power struggle

Added by Beadtmdc

Goku gradually began losing power despite being in Super Saiyan 3 form, and since Kid Buu maintained his full strength even after multiple powerful attacks from Goku, the Saiyan warrior began to panic. Vegeta fought Kid Buu in his Super Saiyan 2 form as a distraction so Goku could get his energy back, even though he knew that his destruction would be permanent if he were destroyed while he was dead. The good Majin Buu later took Vegeta's place after being spit out. However, Goku was unable to get his energy back, reverting back into his base form. Vegeta realized that Goku couldn't defeat Kid Buu by using his power alone, and devised a plan for Goku to create a massive Spirit Bomb with energy given by all the people on Earth in order to destroy Kid Buu. Communicating with King Kai, he coordinated the search for the seven Dragon Balls of New Namek and had the Nameks use them to make three wishes: The first being the restoration of the destroyed Planet Earth.

The second wish affirms the sincerity of Vegeta's newfound humanity, as it entails the revival of everyone who had died since the arrival of Babidi who do not possess an evil heart, so that they can give their energy to the Spirit Bomb. When asked by Goku why the wish was worded so, he reasoned that to wish otherwise would revive Dabura and Babidi, and those whom he murdered at the tournament would stay dead. Surely enough, his own halo disappears, indicating that his heart was no longer an evil one.

This last wish, that of recovering Goku's full strength, was made when Kid Buu was about to overpower the Super Spirit Bomb. Combining Goku's and Vegeta's enormous strength and Vegeta's strategic mind, the last two pure-blood Saiyans were able to defeat Kid Buu and save the universe. The fighters return to Earth and Vegeta goes on to father a second child, his daughter Bulla (Bra in the manga and original anime). After the defeat of Kid Buu, Goku and Vegeta finally become friends after being rivals for many years. They still keep a friendly rivalry between them, though.

Years later, Goku, Vegeta, and the others enter the next World Martial Arts Tournament. In the decade since Kid Buu's defeat, Vegeta has fully accepted life as an Earthling, and has traded in the Saiyan battle fatigues for more casual Earth clothing. Vegeta hopes to fight Goku (again) and Goku hopes to find the reincarnated version of Kid Buu (Uub). [13]Vegeta says farewell to Goku

Added by Saiyan prince

At the end of his fight with Uub, Goku reveals to everybody that he will be leaving for a while to train Uub. Vegeta is the last to talk to Goku before he leaves. Goku apologizes in a way, and tells Vegeta that he does want to have a friendly battle with him one day (to which Vegeta simply replies that "when they fight, they would need a whole planet as an arena"). After Goku and Vegeta say their goodbyes, both Goku and Uub fly away, and Vegeta once again swears to himself that he will fight Goku someday and show him defeat. This is where Dragon Ball Z ends.

In Dragon Ball GT, Vegeta has turned 56. He has become fully accustomed to life on Earth, he got rid of his armor and now wears a jacket. He still has a sour disposition, but appears to have a longer fuse, shaking off most annoyances by rolling his eyes rather than throwing his fists.

Vegeta is now sporting a mustache, and his hair has also become noticeably shorter. However, he shaves the mustache off shortly after his daughter, Bulla, tells him how much she hates it. It was Vegeta's suggestion that Trunks and Goten go with Goku on the search for the Black Star Dragon Balls (Pan ultimately snuck aboard, and Goten was left behind).

Baby, the evil parasite[18]EditEdit

Added by Govven1

In this saga, an artificially-created Tuffle came to Earth. These people were the race that used to live on the Saiyan's homeworld before being wiped out by the stronger race. He possessed people, including Gohan and Goten, to find Vegeta. Vegeta fought both Goten and Gohan, and beat them, but Baby entered Vegeta's body through a cut and proceeded to control him. Although Vegeta resisted him much longer than anyone else, he was eventually taken over. [20]Vegeta

Added by Goku vs Vegita

Baby Vegeta spread his control, taking over the minds of everyone on Earth using special seeds, save those with special protection (i.e. Majin Buu's ability to control his body in any way he wishes protected him from the seeds). After creating a new Tuffle homeworld with the Black Star Dragon Balls, he began moving the people of Earth there bit by bit, proclaiming himself ruler. After a battle with Goku, who managed to reach Super Saiyan 4, Baby Vegeta transformed to a Golden Great Ape form. The two battled and Goku eventually won by blasting off Baby Vegeta's tail. Baby fled Vegeta's body and was blasted into the Sun by Goku.

Soon after a rip between Hell and Earth is formed and many dead villains return. Vegeta easily kills Nappa again, and then battles against a newer version of Android #17, easily dominating him in base form. After Goku gets trapped in Hell and is forced to fight Frieza and Super Perfect Cell, Vegeta claims that he is the Earth's protector in the case of Goku's absence and is determined to win the battle against Super 17 (the fusion of Android 17 and his clone from Hell). He uses his Final Shine Attack in an attempt to vanquish the artificial being, however this proves futile, as Super 17 simply absorbs the attack, noting how sad it seemed. With Goku's arrival, Vegeta decides to take care of Trunks, and tells him to rest, as he senses that Goku and Android 18 have finally delivered the final blow to Super 17.

The Shadow Dragons[24]EditEdit

As Goku continues to have trouble against the One Star Dragon, Omega Shenron, Vegeta comes to his aid. Transforming into a Golden Great Ape, due to the Blutz Wave Generator (a device invented by Bulma), Vegeta proceeded to become a Super Saiyan 4 after gaining control over the Great Ape form. When even this form failed to stop the Shadow Dragon, Goku and Vegeta fused to become Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta. (Ironically, Vegeta was the one who suggested fusion this time.) Gogeta overwhelmed Omega Shenron in power almost bringing the heroes to victory, but the fusion time ran out before they could deliver the final blow.

Vegeta then suggests that all his family and friends take Bulma's space ship and leave the planet while he tries to stop Omega. However, Trunks, Gohan and Goten return to help Vegeta, but all four of them were incapable of defeating Omega, until Goku surprises everyone by powering up the Universal Sprit Bomb. Eventually, thanks to the people of the Earth and universe, Goku gains a big enough Spirit Bomb to destroy Omega Shenron. Before leaving for 100 years, Goku tells Vegeta that the lives of everyone are now in his hands, passing the role of protector of the Earth and anyone in need of help, to Vegeta. When Pan finds Goku's gi on the ground, Vegeta confirms that they are indeed Goku's clothes and tells her to treasure them dearly.

Dragon Ball Z movies[27]EditEdit

Vegeta appears in the following Dragon Ball Movies and Specials:

Bardock - The Father of Goku[28]EditEdit

In this movie Vegeta is still a child (but has incredible power for his age) and is fighting a few saibamen. When he is finished with killing them he orders his guard to open the door of the room were he was training in. He tells Nappa that some day he will kill Frieza. When he visits Frieza he tells brutally that he wants another assigment but Zarbon and Dodoria refuses until Frieza gives it to him after all. But he gives him the hardest one and tells him to come back alive. At the end of the movie Vegeta finds out that his home planet is destroyed by a huge meteor (although it was really Frieza who was responsible for this deed) and he is the, for now known, only survivor of the royal family.

Added by Beadtmdc

Future Vegeta finds out about Goku's death and strangely enough he's sad (Since he and Goku didn't become friends until much later, this was probably because he will never get another chance to fight him ever again). The last time we see him again in this movie is when he is destroyed by Android 17.

Return of Cooler[31]EditEdit

[32]Vegeta about to blast a Meta-Cooler while ignoring Goku

Added by SSJGoku93

Vegeta appears mid-way through The Return of Cooler, where he knocks Cooler off of Goku. Even with the two working together, however, they prove little match for Cooler. Using everything they have, Goku and Vegeta successfully destroy Cooler, only for the Big Gete Star to correct all flaws to Cooler's body by producing one thousand Meta-Coolers, who overwhelm Goku and Vegeta and drag them to the Big Gete Star.

Cooler hooks up Goku and Vegeta to machines and begins to drain all of their Ki to power the Big Gete Star and destroy New Namek. However, Goku and Vegeta take advantage of this and flood the systems with so much energy that they overload. [33]Vegeta injured after a long fight with Cooler

Added by Saiyan prince

Goku attempts to finish off Cooler once and for all, but is quickly strangled by wires. When all seems lost, Vegeta fires an energy blast that shears off Cooler's arm and frees Goku, passing out after stating, "And that's the last time you'll underestimate a Saiyan."

Goku destroys Cooler, but, after being healed by Senzu Beans, Vegeta departs in a Saiyan Pod. Holding the original chip of the Big Gete Star in his hand, Vegeta promptly crushes it to ensure that Cooler will never return.

Super Android 13![34]EditEdit

"Let me make one thing clear. I didn't do this out of the goodness of my heart. I did this because I want you alive. So I can have my shot at destroying you, and no worthless piece of junkyard trash is going to take that chance away from me."— Vegeta to Goku

When Android 13 fires a S.S. Deadly Bomber, Vegeta steps in and blows the S.S. Deadly Bomber away. Goku starts fighting Android 13 again and now Vegeta takes Android 15 and Trunks takes Android 14, Goku, Vegeta and Trunks are getting beaten but then they go Super Saiyan and Vegeta and Trunks destroy their respective Androids. Now Goku was Super Saiyan but that only made him equal with Android 13. Then Gohan and Krillin who already had arrived on the scene a little while ago, attack Android 13 with a Masenko but this didn't hurt Android 13 and he throws a blast at Gohan but his blast is deflected by Piccolo. [36]Vegeta hits Super Android 13, but it has no effect at all

Piccolo then goes to help Goku battle Android 13, along with Vegeta and Trunks, and Android 13 knows he doesn't stand a change against these warriors. Thus, Android 13 absorbs some parts of Android 14 and Android 15 and then Android 13 starts to transform into a big blue being with red hair, becoming Super Android 13.

Nobody stands a change against Super Android 13 and are all beaten, when Goku is kicked into the water he starts to make a Spirit Bomb. When Super Android 13 noticed this he tries to make a S.S. Deadly Bomber to blow the Spirit Bomb away, but he fails because everybody is attacking him, Piccolo even lifted him up so he missed. Now Goku has all the power but its still not enough and he goes Super Saiyan, and by doing this Goku absorbs the Spirit Bomb into himself and destroys 13.

The final scene of the movie depicts Piccolo and Vegeta sitting back to back on an ice block in isolation.

Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan[37]EditEdit

[38]Vegeta decides to fight after all

Added by Andrewjan

While at a picnic, Vegeta is approached by Paragus, one of the few remaining Saiyans, who wants to recreate the Saiyan empire and stop the rampaging Legendary Super Saiyan and leads him to a new Planet Vegeta, while Krillin, Future Trunks, Gohan, Master Roshi, and Oolong tag along.

After searching for the Saiyan, Vegeta encounters Goku, who had also arrived on the planet in search of the Super Saiyan. Vegeta vehemently declares that he will defeat the Saiyan, and orders Goku to stay out of his way. [39]Vegeta gives energy to Goku

Added by Saiyan prince

The next morning, Goku reveals to Vegeta that Broly is the Saiyan that they have been searching for, which Paragus initially tries to deny, but ultimately admits the deception after a cumulation of Future Trunks revealing to Vegeta that he used slaves to try and build the so-called New Vegeta, the city was nothing more than ruins, Broly being responsible for the partial destruction of the slaves' homeworld Shamoa, and Broly going berserk. Broly powers up fully and attacks at full force, and Vegeta is paralyzed with fear throughout most of the fight. However, when he is insulted by the newly-arrived Piccolo, Vegeta comes around, only to be defeated quickly by Broly. When Goku is the last one standing, Piccolo, Gohan, and Trunks all transfer their power to Goku, but Vegeta initially refuses due to his pride. However, as Goku ends up on the losing end of the fight, Vegeta relents and transfers his power to Goku, which allows him to punch through Broly's stomach and apparently kill him. They all then escape just as Comet Camori hits.

Plan to Eradicate Super Saiyans[40]EditEdit

Vegeta is the one who deduces that a Tuffle remnant is responsible for the Destron Gas attack on Earth, by way of their technology. He, Goku, Piccolo, Future Trunks, and Gohan all attempt to stop the machines releasing the gas and briefly battle ghost versions of Frieza, Cooler, Turles, and Lord Slug. Vegeta and the others ultimately destroy the ghost warrior responsible, Dr. Raichi, with Vegeta using his devastating Final Flash. The Z-Warriors are then confronted by Hatchiyack, Raichi's ultimate creation. After they take a brutal beating, Goku discovers his weakness and all five fire their special attacks in unison when Hatchiyak is charging his attack, destroying the Tuffle plan once and for all. After the defeat of Hatchiyak, the Z Fighters realize that the planet they are on is about to be destroyed. Due to this, Goku uses Instant Transmission to get everyone back to earth safely.

Bojack Unbound[41]EditEdit

[42]Vegeta comes to help Trunks and the others

Added by Saiyan prince

Because of Goku's death, Vegeta was unwilling to fight anymore due to the fact that he is most likely deprived of any chance of defeating Goku. This also resulted in him not going to the Intergalactic World Tournament. However, when he notices that Future Trunks might be in danger from Bojack, he goes over to help, taking Trunks' sword with him. Vegeta is one of the characters who fights Bojack and the Galaxy Soldiers, but is defeated. After Gohan defeats Bojack, Vegeta and Piccolo are once again seen together in isolation.

Fusion Reborn[43]EditEdit

[44]Vegeta fights Janemba after saving Goku

Added by Banan14kab

Vegeta appears to save Goku when he is at the mercy of Janemba. Though Vegeta was sent to Hell and stripped of his body when he died, the instabilities caused by Janemba also restored Vegeta's body, like all the other residents of Hell. Vegeta fights Janemba in his SSJ2 form, but is no match for him, being knocked out of the form when the demon delivers a powerful choke. Goku saves Vegeta from Janemba's rampage and hides in a ball of spikes. Vegeta states that he doesn't care if Janemba destroys him, as he despises "life" in Hell and states that even non-existence is better. However, when both himself and Goku are quickly swiped aside, they take shelter, and Goku proposes using Fusion to defeat Janemba. Vegeta refuses, but ultimately relents. However, it fails when Vegeta fails to extend his index finger at the last second, producing a very fat and weak fighter dubbed Veku, who is easily thrown around by Janemba.

Veku manages to avoid Janemba long enough for the Fusion to wear off, and they successfully perform it again, forming Gogeta and defeating Janemba. After the Fusion wears off, Goku and Vegeta bid each other a friendly farewell before Vegeta is once again stripped of his body and sent back to Hell.

After a brief fight in which he is defeated, Vegeta is thrown into a nearby building but is knocked out after he saves the people in the building from Hirudegarn's flame attack by using all his powers to create a barrier strong enough to withstand the attack.

Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!![48]EditEdit

This special takes place 2 years after the end of the Kid Buu Saga. Two remnants of Frieza's planet trade organization, Abo and Kado have pursued Vegeta's younger brother Tarble and his wife Gure to Earth. Tarble comes to Earth with Gure to find his brother and ask him for help to fight against them because they've have been terrorizing the planet Tarble has settled on(proving to be too powerful for Tarble) and have also followed Tarble to Earth. Vegeta appears to be apathetic to Tarble's arrival. He also has a low opinion of him due to his exile from Planet Vegeta for being a weak and unaggressive fighter and the fact Tarble couldn't handle it on his own. He is however respectful (though surprised) by Tarble's wife and even returns her bow in kind. [49]Vegeta meets his sister-in-law

Added by Super saiyan 4

Nontheless, Vegeta is fine with helping his brother out and actually wants to handle Abo and Kado by himself. In the end though, all the Z Fighters want to be involved (to Vegeta's annoyance)and through a contest of seeing who can pull the biggest radish, Trunks wins and is the one to face the incoming villains, though Vegeta is content with his son being the one and encourages him to avenge uncle Tarble. Goten also joins in due to Goku's playful encouraging. Trunks and Goten initially have the upperhand until Abo and Kado use a Cloning technique and tip the odds. Vegeta comments on Trunks forgetting basics which Bulma claims is because he doesn't teach them to Trunks, which leads to Vegeta claiming he lacks motivation and the trait comes from Bulma's side of the family, leading to a short argument that is ended by Goku (joking about the marital quarrel). After Gohan's coaching assistance returns the favor to Goten and Trunks, Abo and Kado use Fusion to become Aka and once again gain the upperhand, leading to Goten and Trunks using Fusion to become Gotenks. Gotenks seems to have regained the advantage until Aka starts using his "Super Wahaha no Ha and wrecking the surrounding area. While Gotenks and the rest of the Z Fighters defend their weaker friends from the blasts and falling debris of Mr. Satan's hotel, Vegeta and Goku go in to stop Aka. Vegeta however is tricked by Goku who points off in another direction to distract Vegeta while Goku proceeds to finish Aka off himself (which Vegeta comments on afterwards by saying that wasn't fair). Afterwards Abo and Kado separate and are shown getting along with everyone, having changed their ways. The final scene shows Vegeta and Goku at the dinner table arguing over food whilst their wives (Bulma and Chi-Chi) look on in embarassment.

Forms and Transformations[50]EditEdit

[51]Vegeta in his base form

Added by Blalafoon

As a member of the Saiyan race, Vegeta possesses a large number of transformations that enhance his abilities to varying degrees and drastically alter his physical appearance. These forms are listed in the order they were attained.

Great Ape[52]EditEdit

Main article: Great Ape [53]Vegeta in his Great Ape transformation

Added by Saiyan prince

This is Vegeta's least used transformation. He was only seen within this form twice in the series. The first time Vegeta transformed into this huge ape like monster, he used a power ball resembling similar effects of the moon. The second time when he transformed, was in GT when Bulma used the Blutz Wave Generator that she created for him, because he was missing his tail. His size is paramount, his ears are keen enough to hear a pin drop from a mile away. His eyes are big and red. He has sharp teeth, and a large "U" shaped mouth. Unlike Goku and Gohan, Vegeta retains his rationality when transformed (It is never shown how he obtained this ability, but it is assumed it is due to his training, or because of the fact that he is of the royal bloodline) . He is much more powerful than his normal form when transformed, and easily crushed Goku, who exclaimed that not even a Kaio-ken x 5 would work on him. Vegeta claimed that the power of the Great Ape form is ten times that of the Saiyan's base form. If this math can be applied to the power levels reported by scouters, his power level in this form would be around 180,000, which is the same as Goku's when he fought the Ginyu Force on Namek. However, it is to be noted that Vegeta took a fair dip in power after losing the beam struggle against Goku who used the four-fold Kaio-ken, and then took another drop when generating the "Power Ball" necessary to induce his transformation, as stated by Goku; this should place his power used in the form at around the low 100 thousands mark, if not the high 10s of thousands.

Super Saiyan[54]EditEdit

Main article: Super Saiyan [55]Vegeta as a Super Saiyan

Added by Beadtmdc

This is Vegeta's Super Saiyan form. Though it was only a Saiyan Legend, Vegeta was fascinated with this transformation and obsessed over obtaining it so that he could avenge his race by having the power to defeat Frieza. Goku achieved the state prior to Vegeta however as did Future Trunks (Though chronologically, Vegeta actually achieved it first, as Future Trunks achieved the form long after Vegeta had been killed and in the special when Gohan was. Furthermore, in the manga version of The History of Trunks, Vegeta was clearly seen as a Super Saiyan in 1 panel, proving that he had managed to attain the transformation some time after Goku's death.) which only fueled his desire to unlock the potential hidden within him. Vegeta first showed off the Super Saiyan state while he was fighting Android 19, ripping off the Android's arms and thereby rendering it unable to keep absorbing his energy, after which he reduced it to a lifeless head with the Big Bang Attack.

In this form, his power greatly increases from his regular level. His hair turns blond, the irises of his eyes become green, and he acquires a golden aura just as Goku had done before him. He gains a slight muscle increase as well. Vegeta mastered this level when he was training to surpass Goku, during the seven year period of peace between the Cell and Buu arcs, thus resulting in becoming much more powerful than when he first became a Super Saiyan or when he ascended to Super Saiyan 2nd Grade, able to remain in the transformation for multiple days without the normal exhaustion overcoming him. This is shown when he maintains the form auralessly as though it were his natural state during both his training with Trunks in the gravity chamber, and before his fight with Goku against Kid Buu. After reverting back to base form to calmly watch the battle that ensued between Super Saiyan 3 Goku and Kid Buu, Vegeta displayed the ability to immediately transform to Super Saiyan 2 without accessing this stage first to distract Buu while Goku regathers his power (previously, this had only been done by Goku at the time, although both he and Gotenks displayed the ability to instantly transform two or more levels when both ascended straight to Super Saiyan 3 from the first Super Saiyan form). He used this form to battle Baby Gohan and Baby Goten. He also used this form to battle Super 17 and Omega Shenron, but is badly beaten both times and nearly killed by Omega Shenron's Dragon Thunder technique.

Ascended Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2nd Grade[56]EditEdit

Main article: Ascended Super Saiyan [57]Ascended Super Saiyan Vegeta

Added by Banan14kab

This form wields much greater power than his Super Saiyan level. At this level, Vegeta personally calls himself "Super Vegeta." He has the same basic golden features of his Super Saiyan level, only now his muscles are much larger. His hair also is bigger and slightly sharper, and he looks and acts more dominant. Due to Vegeta's muscle mass increase, he is much stronger than in his Super Saiyan form, and his speed and agility are unencumbered, unlike the 3rd Stage Ascended Saiyan, which significantly decreases speed (but greatly increases in strength). Vegeta went through this transformation when he was training to fight Cell and he fought, as well as Perfect Cell (where he is outmatched, and knocked out with his face to the ground after a hard hit to the spine, reverting him to base form). It is suggested by Tien that this form had a power equal to Perfect Cell's, and by Piccolo that Vegeta only lost against Cell because he fought sloppily as when Vegeta used the Final Flash attack, he destroyed a large portion of his body, but he had to redirect the majority of the power of his blast upwards to avoid destroying the planet, and it assumed that Cell escaped the brunt of the attack. Had Cell taken the brunt, he might have actually been destroyed. However it was soon realized that Cell was really holding back. #16 also notes that although Cell had grown much stronger after absorbing #18, he was still ahead in every way, though Vegeta is able tell that Cell was holding back his power, and this is proven when Cell doesn't use anything close to his full power to defeat Vegeta with ease.

Super Saiyan 2[58]EditEdit

Main article: Super Saiyan 2 [59]Vegeta as a Super Saiyan 2

Added by Saiyan prince

This is Vegeta's strongest form in Dragon Ball Z. This form turns as strong as Majin Vegeta when he returns to Earth by King Yemma. It is sometimes debated when he first achieved this form. In the manga, there are quite a few hints he achieved it before he became Majin Vegeta, with practically none to the contrary, as Vegeta only states Goku to be stronger than Gohan once he, too transforms into Super Saiyan 2, holding complete confidence in his superiority over Gohan prior to becoming Majin Vegeta, and transforms into this state on his own free will from Super Saiyan 1, long after he became Majin Vegeta.

Vegeta first uses this form when he fights against Goku while as Majin Vegeta. He also uses this form when fighting Super Buu before the Vegito fusion, albeit only in the anime. He also fights Kid Buu so Goku can gather enough energy in his Super Saiyan 3 form to defeat Kid Buu, during which he is easily beaten and reverted back to base as Goku fails to charge up his full power due to energy depletion. It was also used in the movies Fusion Reborn and the final movie, dubbed "Wrath of the Dragon," and in both instances he is again reverted back to base form, against Hirudegarn knocked down in particular after defending a group of people inside a building that he was thrown into. Strangely enough, in all three of those instances, including when fighting Kid Buu, lightning is removed from his transformation despite the bolts constantly surrounding his body in the original manga, causing some confusion over whether he actually used this form in the anime or not, as the bolts only appear for about a few seconds when he fires a barrage of ki blasts to stall for time, possibly due to budget issues (even Super Saiyan 3 Goku has no lightning for this particular scene). He used this form to battle Baby Gohan and Baby Goten. He also used this form to battle Super 17 and Omega Shenron, but is badly beaten both times and nearly killed by Omega Shenron's Dragon Thunder technique.

Both the Daizenshuu and the new Super Exciting Guide character profiles state that Vegeta was awakened to his Super Saiyan 2 form by means of extensive training in between the Cell and Buu arcs, which assures that Vegeta did indeed achieve this transformation through training. When Vegeta transforms to a Super Saiyan 2 he receives some noticeable changes, such as his hair growing a little bit longer, spiker and becoming more defined than his other previous Super Saiyan forms. He also gains electricity in his aura surrounding his body in this form.

Super Saiyan 3[60]EditEdit

Main article: Super Saiyan 3 [61]Vegeta as a Super Saiyan 3 in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast

Added by 10X Kamehameha

Vegeta has never officially reached this transformation in the manga or anime. This form of Vegeta is a game exclusive form for Dragon Ball Z: Dragon Battlers, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.

Vegeta is seen fighting as a Super Saiyan 3 in the trailer for Dragon Battlers. In this trailer, Goku is seen to of been beaten by Super Saiyan 3 Broly. Just as Broly can deliver the final blow, he is seen to of been struck by an energy blast. The blast is then revealed to of come from Vegeta who is in his newly attained Super Saiyan 3 form. Goku the gets up and transforms into his SS3 form. After that, both Vegeta and Goku are seen powering up in preparation to face Broly.

In Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, Vegeta fights in this form as part of a What-if scenario called The Strongest Super Saiyan 3. In this scenario, Vegeta is shown to have finally attained Super Saiyan 3 and, upon reaching the form, challenges every other Saiyan who has managed to reach the form as well: he faces and defeats all other Super Saiyan 3s (Gotenks, Broly, and Goku), proving that he is indeed "The Strongest Super Saiyan 3". While in his Super Saiyan 3 transformation, Vegeta reveals a more powerful version of the Galick Gun techique, which, instead of being purple like the original, is somewhat reddish in color.

Golden Great Ape Vegeta[62]EditEdit

Main article: Golden Great Ape [63]Vegeta as a Golden Great Ape

Added by Jeangabin666

After Goku tries to destroy Omega Shenron by self-destruction, Vegeta comes to his aid and tells him that he has a plan to reach Super Saiyan 4. Bulma shoots at Vegeta the same blutz waves as she used against Baby, which allows Vegeta to grow his tail back and become a Great Ape and later a Golden Great Ape. After Vegeta becomes fully conscious of himself, he transforms into a Super Saiyan 4.

Super Saiyan 4[64]EditEdit

Main article: Super Saiyan 4 [65]Vegeta as a Super Saiyan 4

Added by Beadtmdc

Bulma used the blutz wave amplifier as a substitute for the moon and used it on Vegeta. These waves ran through Vegeta's veins, forcing his tail to grow back, which is necessary for a Saiyan to transform into a Great Ape. With his tail back, like Goku, he was able to transform into a Great Ape. His enormous power allowed him to then transform into a Golden Great Ape, and then, upon gaining control of himself, he advanced by 2 levels (similar to Gotenks with his Super Saiyan 3 transformation, only that he transformed without any assistance, and could have taken the Super Saiyan 2 transformation if he wanted) and transformed into a Super Saiyan 4. Vegeta's features are quite different from his previous forms. His hair style changes, becoming longer and more wild. His hair becomes dark brown, and extends to his shoulders, his eyes are aqua-colored, and he has red fur on the upper part of his body. Other than certain forms of fusion with Goku, (SS4 Gogeta) this is his most powerful transformation.

Possessed or Impure Forms[66]EditEdit

Majin Vegeta[67]EditEdit

[68]Majin Vegeta

Added by Beadtmdc

Majin Vegeta is the form Vegeta became when he became a follower of Babidi and gains a significant boost in his power from his influence. While having the Majin seal on his forehead, Vegeta's true dark nature is reawakened (hence, the Japanese Perfect File books refer to this state as "Demon Prince Vegeta"), and in turn became more powerful than he was before. Majin Vegeta usually fights at the level of Super Saiyan 2 and his power equals that of Goku at his Super Saiyan 2 level, and later to that of himself when he fights Super Buu w/Gohan absorbed and Kid Buu. After Vegeta is killed by his devastating final explosion as a last resort to destroy Majin Buu, this form is never seen again in either the manga or anime, but the Shin Budokai games show Vegeta assuming the state twice more, once by Janemba's influence and that of Future Babidi's. [69]Vegeta becoming a Majin

Added by KC Boobie

When Babidi attempted to mystically take control of Vegeta, he invaded his mind, something he could only achieve because of the hidden depths of evil lurking within his heart. This action was Babidi's last defense in an effort to use him against the other Z Fighters. It is revealed that Vegeta could have stopped his possession but willingly chose to let Babidi take control of his body, believing that by awakening the evil intentions within himself he would finally be able to defeat Goku. As he fought along side the Z Fighters during the years and grew attached to his new home on Earth and his family, Vegeta struggled to hold onto his merciless dark side which he believed was the true source of his power. [70]Majin Vegeta vs Goku

Added by SuperTiencha

Vegeta realized that without a heart of pure good or pure evil, competition with Goku, and after being saved by Gohan during the Cell Games, that he was slowly losing his power increases compared to before. Seeing how Babidi's magic had affected Majin followers and augumented their strength, Vegeta realized that Babidi's magic could return him to his former self, as he had been when he first arrived on Earth and fought Goku. As Majin Vegeta, Vegeta is a Super Saiyan 2 in combat, his eyelids are black and lined, and the "M" symbol appears on his forehead, the mark of the Majin, indicating he is now a servant of Babidi.

During his brief incarnation, Majin Vegeta uses his possessed state to act ruthlessly and without regard for the lives of others, killing indiscriminately to force Goku to fight. Over the course of the fight he completely overrides the mind-control of Babidi with sheer will alone. Majin Vegeta reveals the bitterness he has held within himself all the years that Goku has been deceased and that he had been forced to live with his loss of pride, the only thing he believes has any value. [71]Majin Vegeta enjoying himself


Eventually, Vegeta knocks Goku unconscious so that he can fight the newly released Majin Buu alone and prove he does not need Goku's help. But despite his efforts against Buu, Majin Vegeta cannot overcome his endless stamina, ridiculous power, and instant regeneration. As his final selfless act, Majin Vegeta self destructs in order to save Bulma, Trunks, Goku and the entire world from the threat of Majin Buu, despite knowing that unlike Goku, he wouldn't keep his body after death (although, unbeknownst to him, King Yemma still allowed him to keep the body anyway as to have him return to Earth as a final resort to take down Majin Buu). This marked the final transformation of Vegeta from his selfish evil and neutral state into a good hero. Upon death, he is finally freed from the symbol of the Majin and wished back a short time later. [72]Majin Vegeta destroying the World Tournament stage

Added by Radaghast

He later reappears in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, as Future Babidi again uses his magic to try and brainwash Vegeta. However, unlike the last time Vegeta transformed into Majin Vegeta, this time, it was completely against Vegeta's will. He also appears in the previous game Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai in a similar manner, in that Vegeta does battle with Majin Vegeta (in reality Janemba in disguise), but Majin Vegeta/Janemba then possesses him, despite Vegeta's best efforts to prevent it.

Baby Vegeta[73]EditEdit

Main article: Baby [74]Super Baby Vegeta 2

Added by SSJ2AJB

Like Majin Vegeta, this is a form outside the normal Saiyan transformations. This was achieved when Vegeta was cut and then infected with the Baby alien. Vegeta was able to resist the takeover longer then anyone else but eventually Baby took control. Baby seems to have fused with Vegeta more completely than any of his other hosts, none of which were transformed. In the early stage, Vegeta's hair turns gray in favor of the golden color of Super Saiyan, and red marks appear on his face. There is also a massive power augmentation. In this form, Baby is completely unfazed by a full force punch to the face from a Super Saiyan 3 Goku, even before being altered to augument his strength. This form is transformed when Baby absorbs the negative energy from the infected people of Earth, briefly taking the form of Super Baby Vegeta, before finally becoming the more familiar Super Baby Vegeta 2. Later, when being completely overwhelmed by the power of Super Saiyan 4 Goku, Baby transforms yet again, this time becoming a Golden Great Ape, a transformation which has previously allowed Goku to surpass Super Baby's power. Due to Baby-possessed Bulma's application of wave surges called "Blutz Waves Generator" ("Bruits Waves" in the original version), Baby was transformed into a Golden Great Ape in order to compete with Super Saiyan 4 Goku. In this state, Baby Vegeta is able to compete with the powerful Saiyan foe. After his tail is severed, Baby Vegeta reverts to Vegeta's normal state and Baby leaves Vegeta's body.



Main article: Vegito [77]Vegito, the result of Potara Fusion between Goku and Vegeta

Added by Beadtmdc

The Potara Saiyan fusion between Vegeta and Goku. He was created as a desperate plan by Elder Kai to stop the powerful Super Buu. Goku's relaxation, and Vegeta's strategic mind enabled Vegito to be quite an intelligent fighter without being overcome by arrogance as Vegeta alone would be but possessing the ruthlessness to kill Super Buu that Goku would lack. In addition, Vegito also possesses the enormous power and speed of both Goku and Vegeta, as well as the tactics and skill of both. He is very similar to Gogeta, who is another fusion of Goku and Vegeta.


Main article: Gogeta [79]Gogeta in Super Saiyan Form

Added by SSJ2AJB

The Fusion Dance of Goku and Vegeta, Gogeta is considered to be one of the most formidable characters introduced in the series. Like Vegito, Gogeta was an act of desperation, though this one was to stop the powerful demon, Janemba, rather than Majin Buu. Gogeta easily outclassed Janemba, and the demon was quickly disposed of in a heart beat. [80]Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta

Added by SSWerty

Vegeta contributed his Saiyan smarts, and his power. It was a Metamoresean warrior who first taught Goku the technique. As a Super Saiyan 4, Gogeta is the strongest known being in the Dragon Ball universe. However, due to his extraordinary power, the fusion will only last for ten minutes, (as opposed to the typical half hour), though this has been proven ample time to defeat any foe many times over. He is very similar to Vegito, who is another fusion of Goku and Vegeta.

  • If counting his appearance as a Super Saiyan 3 in video games, Vegeta has ascended to every Super Saiyan level, with the exception of Ultra Super Saiyan. It is hinted that he knew how, but that he refused to transform due to the form's disadvantage. However, the Daizenshuu does not state Vegeta as a user of the Ultra Super Saiyan form.
  • Vegeta saves Goku's life many times, mostly in the movies (although Goku has also saved Vegeta's life a few times). Vegeta always notes that he should be the only one to "have the pleasure of killing Kakarot."
  • Vegeta is the only one in the manga canon to have conscious control over his Great Ape form (Raditz and Nappa were never shown as Great Apes, so it is unknown whether they had control as well).
  • Ironically, the first time Vegeta openly shows his love of Trunks and Bulma occurs when he is in Majin Form, which traditionally brings out the evil in people.
  • Vegeta is insusceptible to the pain a typical Saiyan experiences when having their tail mistreated, as he declares to the horror of Piccolo, Krillin and Gohan in the episode "Time's Up!!". However, the manga and Japanese anime implies that he and Nappa managed to train their tails while Raditz neglected to do so with his, which is further supported by Goku getting over the weakness prior to the 22nd World Tournament in the original Dragon Ball.
  • In the episode "Elite Fighters of the Universe... The Ginyu Force", during Guldo's flashback to a confrontation with Vegeta, Vegeta is shown without a tail, even though this scene took place before he went to Earth. Additionally, he's wearing the version of the armor he didn't start wearing until the Namek Saga (the one he wore on Earth and prior had flaps below the waist). This is likely an artwork error in the same vein as Goku once being seen in the manga with the symbol of the Turtle School in the Cell arc, where he removes all symbols on his gi and makes slight changes.
  • Despite Vegeta's obsession with defeating Goku, Goku has never actually beaten him. However, Vegeta's wounded pride over the fact that Goku surpassed him with the 3-fold Kaio-Ken and continued to later is likely the main reason for his desire to beat him, which continues to the end of the series (although in a more friendly manner).
  • During Vegeta and Nappa's earliest appearance in the Dragon Ball Z anime, Vegeta's armor is orange and green, as opposed to yellow and white respectively, and his hair is brown. He retains this appearance on planet Arlia as well, though this was corrected on Dragon Ball Kai except when Raditz explains to Goku about Saiyans selling planets to aliens, Vegeta still appears with the wrong colors. His traditional coloring was standardized following his and Nappa's arrival on Earth during the Vegeta Saga. Vegeta's original palette is used as an alternate color in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
  • Vegeta would technically be the "King" of all Saiyans, but, likely out of respect for his father, he does not refer himself as such.
  • In Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, it is revealed that he has an estranged younger brother, Tarble, who was banished from Planet Vegeta for being a weakling.
  • Vegeta has an extreme fear and disgust of squirmy things, as seen in Mind Trap, when he and Goku are trapped in Buu's stomach. However, this was anime filler.
  • Vegeta is one of four main characters in the series who blows himself up, the other three being Chiaotzu, Semi-Perfect Cell and Super Buu. Ironically, all but Semi-Perfect Cell failed to ever kill any of their targets (in a sense, though, Cell still failed to blow up the Earth, as well as Gohan).
  • It is also notable that before Vegeta sacrifices himself, he asks Piccolo if he will see Goku in the Other World. This being curious as Vegeta already was killed by Frieza and wished back. Although he likely did not keep his body (for if he did, he would have been revived in the netherworld like Goku was in the Saiyan Saga), he would have had some preconception of what death was like.
  • Vegeta almost always addresses Goku by his Saiyan birth name, Kakarot, but has on rare occasion addressed him as Goku. Vegeta says Goku's name eight times, only two of which stating that Kakarot is Goku.
    The first two were before he realized that Goku was Kakarot, during his battle on Earth, and the third is when he said Goku must be Kakarot. The fourth was when he was healing in the rejuvenation tank during the Namek Saga.
    The fifth and sixth was during the Garlic Jr. Saga, when he is searching for Goku, he referred to him as Goku when speaking to the Frieza soldiers twice, perhaps figuring that if Goku had come across them and introduced himself, he would've used his Earth name (though this is not to be so easily dismissed as non-canon, the moment after Garlic Jr. is sucked into the Dead Zone, Vegeta calls him Kakarot again).
    The seventh time was in "Welcome Back Goku" when Vegeta says to Trunks "Kakarot, the one you call Goku, and I are the only Saiyans left." The eighth time was during the Super 17 Saga, when he was incapacitated by Super 17, Dr. Myuu boasted that no one could stop them with Goku trapped in Hell; Vegeta immediately regained consciousness and shouted, "Did you say Goku?!" Additionally, in the original manga, Vegeta once refers to Goku as (Son) Goku after being shown his full power during the opening match of the Cell Games (after Satan lost his) when remarking at the extent of his true power, and Vegeta refers to him as Goku aloud when he asks for Dende to wish that his power be restored to full strength. The first of these instances is simply shortened to "So that's his true power..." in the Viz manga.
  • In episode 86 of the uncut episodes while Vegeta is receiving a merciless beating from Frieza, there is a minor inconsistency at the 4:51 mark. Vegeta's Saiyan armor is shown to be in perfect condition, when in fact a hole had been blown through it due to Krillin's earlier energy beam attack designed to damage Vegeta to within an inch of his life so that Vegeta may be healed by Dende and become a Super Saiyan (which he initially believed he did, until proven wrong by being easily beaten to a pulp by Frieza in his true form). However, at 5:08 when his backside is shown again, the armor is completely destroyed.
  • In the FUNimation dub, Vegeta gave Semi-Perfect Cell almost the exact same speech as Android #19 right before he killed him. In addition, he says "Do you realize how fruitless this is? I've been allowing you to deceive yourself." This is similar to what Goku says after defeating Burter ("You've been deceiving yourselves. This fight is fruitless.").
  • From the beginning of Dragon Ball Z to the end, Vegeta loses more and more body armor. In the Saiyan Saga, he had a armor from upper body to crotch guards. In the Frieza Saga, he had less armor, losing the crotch guards and eventually shoulder pads. In the Cell Saga, he had even less armor, with just a chest plate. In the Buu Saga, he had no Saiyan armor, simply white gloves, boots, and a blue jumpsuit (although all of Saiyan origin). In GT, he fully abandons his Saiyan armor for casual clothing.
  • Vegeta is the only pure-blooded Saiyan whose offsprings do not inherit the traditional spiky black hair and eyes, instead seeming to take his mother's hairline (this is made more apparent in the manga, where both Bulma and Trunks have purple hair). Vegeta is also the only Super Saiyan whose hair does not stand any more upright than it already does in his base form.
  • Vegeta has been the strongest character in the series four times: when he first came to Earth (before Goku powered up to Kaio-Ken x3), when he turned Super Saiyan to fight Android 19, when he emerged from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber as an Ascended Super Saiyan (though it was unknown to him, that Trunks had surpassed him in power with the Ultra Super Saiyan stage, but Trunks himself was unaware that Vegeta merely chose not to take the form knowing the severe speed decrease it would cause), and when possessed by Baby (but only until Goku's Super Saiyan 4 transformation).
  • On October 8th, 2009, Vegeta was shown in the Super Saiyan 3 form in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast as the second exclusive character, along with Broly's version.
  • On the Portuguese and Spanish Dub, Vegeta never called Goku by his Saiyan birth name, thus Goku's Saiyan birth name was never revealed in the Portuguese and Spanish Dub of the anime. Interestingly, in the Portuguese Dub of Dragon Ball GT, Vegeta calls Goku by "Cachalote", which is the Portuguese word for Sperm Whale (even though that if pronounced correctly, it actually resembles the English pronunciation for "Kakarot").
  • In Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, Vegeta has more What-if battles in which he is playable in than any other character. The battles in which he is playable are Ginyu Force Shakeup Part 2: Ginyu Demoted, Vegeta's Humiliation, The Father-Son Tagteam & The Strongest Super Saiyan 3.
  • During The Shadow Dragon Saga, Vegeta states that the gap between his and Goku's power had become so large that he had no chance of catching up which set up a chain of flashbacks from the Vegeta Saga, Frieza Saga and the Trunks Saga. As well as the Babidi/ Majin Buu Saga and lastly the Kid Buu Saga this was the cause of Vegeta coming up with the idea to become a Super Saiyan 4.
  • During a flashback in the Frieza Saga, it is shown that Vegeta as a child was on Frieza's ship when Planet Vegeta exploded. Yet in the special Bardock - The Father of Goku, it is shown that he is on another planet. This is also helped by when Raditz states to Goku that he, Nappa, and Vegeta were on other planets at the time of the destruction of Planet Vegeta
