Vegeta (ベジータ), more specifically Vegeta IV (ベジータ四世), recognized as Prince Vegeta (ベジータ王子) is the prince of the fallen Saiyan race In Universe 7. He is the eldest son of King Vegeta and Queen Eschalot, older brother of Tarble, grandson of King Vegeta II, husband of Bulma and the father of Trunks and Bulla. Regal, egotistical, and full of pride, Vegeta was once a ruthless, cold-blooded warrior and outright killer, but later abandons his role in the Frieza Force, instead opting to remain and live on Earth, fighting alongside the Z Fighters, specifically with the mission to defeat and surpass Goku in power.
Vegeta is a slim yet well-built man of a below-average stature. His hair is black (or dark brown, depending on the media) spiky and it firmly stands upwards and has a prominent widow's peak. Like most Saiyans, he possesses defined eyes with a near-consistently stern look to them and his hair is a shade of black. Like other Universe 7 Saiyans, he was born with a prehensile brown-furred tail, until it was permanently (despite him stating it would grow back eventually) cut off by Yajirobe. Over the course of the series, Vegeta's physical appearance changes. While originally appearing very short and lean, especially compared to his massive partner, Nappa, he later seems to be somewhat taller and noticeably more muscular. His hair and forehead appears to be shorter and his facial features, which are perpetually in a scowl, also look more distinct and sharply defined as the series progresses, making him look much older in later sagas compared to what he looked like in the Raditz Saga.
A major characteristic of Vegeta's is the fact that he is the only living Saiyan who has continued to don a traditional Saiyan armor. His general look is a dark blue, full-bodied jumpsuit with white gloves and boots with the said armor on top. He has also been seen wearing alternate forms of the armor, customizing the armor to better suit his persona. When first arriving on Earth, he wore a white armor with yellow shoulder pads and also padding at his hips and nether-region. Along with it, he wore a red-lens scouter on his left eye. During the Frieza Saga, he replaced his heavily damaged armor with a similar one, minus the padding around his waistline. He also briefly wore another scouter until deeming it unnecessary. When his armor was damaged against Recoome, he replaced his outfit wit an older model design consisting of a black bodysuit, white gloves and boots, and a near-purely white armor without shoulder pads. During the Androids Saga, he wore an updated version of his original armor, but without pads. During the Buu Saga, to be allowed to fight Goku in the World Martial Arts Tournament, Vegeta fought without armor and his bodysuit had no sleeves.
in Dragon Ball Super, he returns to wearing the same armor he wore during the Androids/Cell Sagas. During the Golden Frieza Saga, Vegeta wore a new armor made by Bulma, which changes to have a grey bodysuit and a sleeker armor. Whis also placed his insignia in the left side of the armor's chest without Vegeta noticing when they were training. In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, he wears He later wore a blue gray/navy blue bodysuit during his training with Goku. When wearing his battle armor In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the bodysuit beneath his armor is dark teal. to compensate for the Ice Continent’s cold weather, Vegeta also wears a light green winter jacket on top of this outfit which consists of a high turtleneck, a long white line on each sleeve of the jacket with a bold violet colored "SAB" marking in the left chest side of the jacket.
During the Peaceful World Saga, Vegeta wears a dark blue sleeveless jumpsuit while retaining the white gloves and boots. in Dragon Ball GT, he wears a crimson tank top, violet gloves, dark blue jeans and violet boots along with a black leather vest. He cropped his hair, which still spikes upward, and he grew a mustache until he is mortified by Bulla insulting him for it.
In Dragon Ball SF during the Azure Saga, he wears a crimson tank top, violet gloves, dark blue jeans and violet boots along with a black leather vest and now has a Saiyan tail after Old Kai restored it during his training in the sacred world of the kais. His jair is still cropped, which still spikes upward. After training with Azure for 6 years, his hair regrows back to normal length and he now wears a new Battle Armor made by Bulma along with a black bodysuit white/black gloves with purple trimming and white boots with purple trimming.
Vegeta is arrogant throughout the series, and becomes bitter due to the abuse his race suffered at the hands of Frieza. His royalty seems to have bestowed upon him an inflated sense of superiority, holding himself above nearly everyone he encounters. He is immensely proud of his Saiyan heritage and believes his race to be the most powerful in the universe. Despite this, even as an antagonist he did not act like an ordinary Saiyan, being even more cruel and prideful thanks to Frieza's influence. As the Prince of a demolished Planet Vegeta, Vegeta is initially introduced as an unrepentant villain. Judging from his evil intentions before joining the Z Fighters, Vegeta has been consistently characterized as extremely arrogant, vengeful, and at times, cold. Many of Vegeta's early heroic acts are because of self-interest or revenge, although he later settles down and grows fond of Earth as his home, raising a family with Bulma. Having been born into the upper tier of Saiyan society, Vegeta was fixated on achieving the legendary status of Super Saiyan and becoming the most powerful warrior in the universe. Vegeta is more of a tactical fighter who often rushes in the brawl without hesitation. However, his rage or arrogance often causes him to underestimate his opponent and usually leads to his eventual defeat and sometimes death. His royal blood and intense fighting style has both benefited and harmed him in many battles.
Vegeta has been shown to be one of the more intelligent characters of the series, as well as one of the most serious, rarely exhibiting humor. When he does so, his humor is often very dry and in some rare occasions it is based on black humor. Aside from his more bleak sense of humor, he has also at times engaged in more sarcastic humor when gloating. Normally, his ego and arrogance overshadow his positive qualities. Despite his massive ego and arrogance Vegeta is capable of respecting individuals, although he never outright states it often showing his respect non verbally. Vegeta is shown to have a fear of worms, as when the small roundworms appear behind a larger one when inside Buu, Vegeta bolts behind Goku. Vegeta tends to be hotheaded and quick tempered during battles, especially ones not in his favor.
In addition to his wife and children, it is implied that on some level Vegeta cared and looked up to his father, despite his claims to the contrary. His father was one of the greatest influences on young Vegeta, instilling in him his strong Saiyan pride as well as his early elitist views. Vegeta also tried to defend his father from Beerus showing that he indeed cared for him which is also supported by his assertion that he followed Frieza when he was younger cause Frieza had threatened his father. While Vegeta coldly seemed to care little for his father when Frieza mentioned killing him, it is likely he kept his true feelings towards his father to himself as such emotions were considered a sign of weakness among the Saiyans. In addition to his father, Vegeta has a positive relationship with his younger brother which is ironically in contrast to Goku and Raditz's relationship. Though Vegeta is ashamed of his brother's weakness like his father was he gets along well with him despite this though this may be due to Tarble looking up to Vegeta and even letting his brother believe he was responsible for defeating Frieza.
At this time in Age 732, Vegeta is already born and is an infant kept in an incubation in a nursery of babies destined to become elite warriors. King Vegeta checks up on Vegeta in his incubation and notices that Vegeta's power level is astonishing and has been growing stronger as the time progresses. King Vegeta is impressed about his son's power level and hopes that one day as he succeeds him as the next King of the Saiyans that he will become more vicious than himself and hopes that Vegeta will put an end to the tyrant, Frieza, and become the next ruler of the universe so the Saiyans don't work for Frieza anymore though as King Vegeta leaves, he finds out there is another baby that far exceeds his son's power level and his latent abilities are quite remarkable causing King Vegeta to be angry and jealous of Broly's power level exceeding his son's which causes King Vegeta to banish Broly from Planet Vegeta to send him to an inhospitable world such as Vampa with no humanoid life forms though when Paragus confronts him about this, King Vegeta explains to Paragus that Broly's abnormal power level might be a danger to everyone on Planet Vegeta causing Paragus realize King Vegeta's jealousy and leaves after Broly to Vampa.
Vegeta and his race are also under the rule of the interplanetary warlord Frieza, and King Vegeta was also forced by Frieza to surrender him to the latter through undisclosed means. While under Frieza's grip, Vegeta was pressured by Frieza to do his bidding or else Frieza would murder Vegeta's father. In his youth, Vegeta saw his father being stepped over by the God of Destruction Beerus. Vegeta attempts to help but he gets paralyzed by Beerus, restraining him from moving.
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman
Dragon Ball Minus - The Departure of the Fated Child
In Age 737, Vegeta now 5 years old and out on a mission on another planet with 4 Saiyan comrades which are Raditz, Nappa, and 2 other unknown Saiyans. Frieza has since then destroyed Planet Vegeta and an unknown Saiyan comrade informs Nappa that the Frieza Force has messaged the destruction of Planet Vegeta through a collision with a meteor which shocks Nappa and another unknown Saiyan comrade as they realized that this caused the extinction of most of the Saiyan race and Nappa says that the Frieza Force should've detected the approaching meteor.
They rush to inform the Saiyan Prince Vegeta about this. Raditz tells Vegeta that they're lucky that they ignored Frieza's orders to head back to Planet Vegeta much to Vegeta's disappointment that he will never be given the title as King Vegeta after hearing the news. Nappa asks Vegeta if he has a brother. Vegeta says yes, but he wonders if his brother got blown up for all he cares. Vegeta is later seen looking toward the sky smiling.
Between Jaco and Dragon Ball Z
Frieza keeps Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz as combatants to do his bidding. In the manga chapter of the Namek Saga, Vegeta is angry over working under Frieza. Vegeta is especially reluctant to take orders from Frieza's right-hand man, Zarbon, whom Vegeta states is responsible for mocking him for many years and working him like a slave. Despite being Frieza's underling, Vegeta constantly and proudly calls himself the "Prince of all Saiyans." Vegeta does not refer to himself as the King of all Saiyans, possibly out of respect for his father, a refusal to admit the extinction of the Saiyans, or because he was never formally declared King. Vegeta planned to assassinate Frieza several times. However, after witnessing Frieza's incredible display of power when he destroyed an entire planet and the rebels who opposed Frieza on it with a single gigantic energy ball fired from his index finger, Vegeta decided that he would need to wait before challenging Frieza
After an assignment to wipe out the planet Shikk alongside his comrades Raditz and Nappa, Vegeta restrained Nappa when the latter attempted to brashly attack Frieza, Zarbon, and Dodoria for mocking the manner in which they took out the planet as he realized that his group did not stand a chance against Frieza's Elite. Nonetheless, he was still visibly angry and had to restrain himself from attacking when Zarbon mocked him as he was leaving. At one point during his time serving under Frieza, Vegeta gets into a squabble with the Ginyu Force member Guldo, over how Vegeta is more important in the eyes of Frieza. Guldo mocks Vegeta for being a Saiyan and says he should take orders from them, and Vegeta responds that Guldo takes orders from Frieza the same as he does and mocks Guldo for being a "four-eyed freak". As the angry Guldo prepares to attack Vegeta, Frieza arrives and blasts Guldo away. Frieza then has Vegeta come with him to conquer a planet.
Dragon Ball Z
Raditz and Vegeta Saga
In Age 761, Vegeta and Nappa plot a course to Earth when he receives Raditz's dying report of seven magic objects known as the Dragon Balls which will grant wishes. After hearing this report, and of Raditz's death, Vegeta and his companion, Nappa, decide to come to Earth and use the Dragon Balls to wish for immortality (it is implied in later sagas that he desired immortality so he could defeat Frieza for his years of suffering). Goku and the Z Fighters are warned of their arrival, and begin to train themselves. While Vegeta and Nappa travel to Earth, they stop by Arlia. They were only there for a short time, and while they were there, they made short work of the planet's strongest warriors, before destroying Planet Arlia.
On November 3 in Age 762, when they landed on Earth, Nappa and Vegeta wreaked havoc with little to stop them. They then found Piccolo, Krillin, and Gohan waiting for them, with Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, and Yamcha appearing just after. After losing Yamcha (after one Saibaman self destructed), Krillin destroys most of the Saibamen with Piccolo destroying the last Saibaman. This causes Vegeta and Nappa to become impressed, but Nappa decides to heat things up by being the first to battle Earth's defenders. Vegeta sits back and watches the beatings. Nappa easily dominates all the Z Fighters, resulting in Chiaotzu sacrificing himself by blowing up on Nappa's back, which was in vain, leaving his best friend Tien sacrificing himself to avenge him, which was also proves to be in vain. While Nappa does manage to get wounded every now and then, he seems to have complete control of the battle. In the middle of the battle, Vegeta demands that Nappa stop his rampage for three hours to give Goku a chance to arrive at the scene. Nappa succumbs to Vegeta's orders and obeys him. Vegeta allows Nappa to destroy the Earth's Military and Navy with the condition that he doesn't use up enough energy to break a sweat.
Throughout both parts of the battle, Vegeta chuckles to himself whenever Nappa stumbles on a technique, or when one of the Z Fighters gain the upperhand on Nappa for a limited amount of time, also constantly belittling Nappa, calling him weak and idiotic. However, despite Vegeta's lack of faith in Nappa, he does assist Nappa in dire situations, such as when he warns Nappa about Krillin's Destructo Disc. As Nappa continues to hold the advantage in the battle, the remaining Z Fighters desperately call for Goku to assist them. When Goku finally comes back on Earth and heads directly towards them using his Flying Nimbus, Vegeta reads Goku's power level and then orders Nappa to kill Goku's friends, noting that their assistance with Goku in the battle could be difficult for he and Nappa to defeat. When Gohan angers Nappa to higher levels, Nappa attempts to annihilate Gohan, but Piccolo quickly stands in the way of his attack, thus sacrificing himself for Gohan's sake.
After Piccolo bids his farewell to Gohan, Gohan furiously attacks Nappa at full force with a Masenko, which is still not enough to injure Nappa. Vegeta recognizes that Gohan's power only increases with intense displays of emotion, and orders Nappa to kill the boy. Goku arrives just before Nappa can crush Gohan with his foot. Vegeta detects the high power level of Goku with his scouter, and after a quick introduction, Goku begins to fight Nappa. Goku and Nappa seem to be evenly matched at first, but the benefits of Goku's training quickly became evident. Eventually, Vegeta calls Nappa back after taking too long, so Nappa decides that he will kill Gohan and Krillin instead. Goku activates the Kaio-ken, and stops Nappa before he can do anything, crippling him in the process. Goku orders Vegeta to take his injured friend back to where they came from for immediate medical attention. Because of Nappa's failure to defeat a low class Saiyan like Goku, when Nappa begs Vegeta to help him, Vegeta fools Nappa into thinking he will assist him, but instead throws Nappa in the air and kills him for his failure. After giving Krillin and Gohan Senzu Beans, which fully recovers their strength, Goku tells Gohan and Krillin to leave Vegeta to him and requests to Vegeta to fight somewhere else.
Vegeta eventually agrees, and they leave the battle field. At Gizard Wasteland, Vegeta offers Goku a chance to join him, but Goku quickly turns down the offer as he already has everything he wanted, completely disagrees with Vegeta's selfish intentions, and has already seen how Vegeta treats his partners. Vegeta and Goku continue discussing who is truly right, with Vegeta stating that even Goku's multiplying Kaio-ken technique will not reach his elite rank power level, with Goku replying by stating if someone struggles hard enough, a low-class can reach the rank of an elite warrior. Their fight now begins, and it is made clear that Vegeta is much stronger than the much-improved Goku. Even using Kaio-ken, it was not enough to stop Vegeta. Thus, Goku had to push the multiplier of the technique even higher, ignoring King Kai's warnings. With this power, Goku was able to fight Vegeta on equal ground to an extent, and the prince of Saiyans lost his temper and decided he would destroy the planet with his Galick Gun, and go find the Dragon Balls on Namek instead. However, Goku countered the Galick Gun with a Kamehameha, and the two struggled for several minutes.
When it seemed Vegeta was gaining the upper hand, Goku finally pushed himself to unforeseen levels and used Kaio-ken times four to boost his power even higher, in turn surprising and overwhelming Vegeta and sending him skywards. Vegeta managed to survive the beam carrying him ever higher. Thus, Vegeta decided to transform himself into a Great Ape, which would multiply his power tenfold, throwing a Power Ball into the air, as Piccolo destroyed the moon a couple of months before. When Vegeta transformed, Goku was completely outclassed and had to resort to using the Spirit Bomb technique. However, before he could use it, Vegeta disrupted it with a Chou Makouhou. Then Vegeta grabbed Goku and began to slowly crush him, making him suffer instead of killing him quickly. Krillin and Gohan had seen the Power Ball that Vegeta had used to transform, and had returned to the battle.
Upon finding Goku defeated, they attempted to distract Vegeta and cut off his tail, in order to force him back to his normal form. This attempt failed, but Yajirobe succeeded where the strong Z Fighters had not. When he was back to normal, Vegeta became enraged and fought Gohan briefly. Despite Gohan's efforts, Vegeta proved to be far stronger and faster than the boy. Goku then decides to give Krillin the last of the Spirit Bomb he managed to retain. Krillin accepted this new energy, and was instructed by Goku how to unleash it on Vegeta. Panicking at first, Krillin receives further instructions from North Kai, and he hurls the Spirit Bomb at Vegeta. When Yajirobe shouted at Krillin to throw it, making Vegeta notice him, Krillin throws it, and at first it missed, but Gohan was pure enough that he could bounce the energy back, striking Vegeta. The Spirit Bomb hit him and severely damaged him, reducing his energy and strength greatly; but he survived.
Vegeta then draws upon his Ki reserves and unleashes a mighty blast that strikes down everyone nearby. Vegeta notices that Gohan has regrown his tail from the effects of the Power Ball, and realizes that he may soon transform. The villain is unable to prevent this thanks to Yajirobe distracting him with an attack from behind. Realizing his mistake, Vegeta quickly returns to Gohan, but was too late. Gohan assumes the Great Ape form, and Vegeta in his severely weakened state could not defeat him. However, Vegeta could out-think the primitive ape form of Gohan, and manages to cut off Gohan's tail, returning the young half-breed to normal size and power. Before Gohan could fully return to normal, however, he fell on Vegeta as a Great Ape, and Vegeta was unable to dodge in his wounded state.
Vegeta finally retreats, and crawls to his space pod, realizing he cannot keep fighting in his current condition. A weakened Krillin gains consciousness, and just when he is about to stab Vegeta with Yajirobe's katana sword, Goku telepathically pleaded for Krillin to let Vegeta go, wanting to have a rematch one day and also wanting Vegeta to have the same chance to change his ways that Piccolo got; after much persuasion, Krillin agrees. Vegeta then departs Earth, vowing to make Goku regret sparing him, and his space pod takes him to one of the planets controlled by Frieza. With his extreme arrogance he cannot understand how a "Low-Class" Saiyan like Goku could have done so well against him, unwilling to factor the contributions of the other three warriors into the battle.
Namek, Captain Ginyu and Frieza Saga
After rehabilitation in Age 762, on December 13, Cui tells Vegeta that Frieza is already on Namek alongside his henchmen Zarbon and Dodoria, and that they are searching for the Dragon Balls. Without wasting any time, Vegeta makes his way to Planet Namek, now planning to make a wish with the Dragon Balls. During his stay on the planet, he meets up with Krillin and Gohan, who were also in search of the Namekian Dragon Balls. He tries to track them down and torment them, but eventually leaves them alone since he has much bigger problems such as Frieza, his previous master and the warlord who was also in search of the mystical Balls. While on Namek, Vegeta is followed and ambushed by Cui. Frieza had given Cui the order to terminate Vegeta, a command Cui had been hoping to hear for many years. However, unbeknownst to Cui, Vegeta's encounter with the earthlings allowed his strength to grow exponentially higher. Now seeing Vegeta's true power, Cui attacks Vegeta, but Vegeta easily evades Cui's attack, telling him that when his power increased, so did his speed. He then easily kills Cui
Vegeta later takes the opportunity to dispatch Dodoria as well. Once Dodoria is alone, Vegeta learns from him the true circumstances of Planet Vegeta's destruction by Frieza himself. Dodoria offers Vegeta the opportunity to join forces with him to defeat Frieza, however Vegeta declines the offer and as he reveals his true power, Dodoria runs away cowardly calling for Frieza's help. Vegeta then ruthlessly executes Dodoria as well. After killing Dodoria, Vegeta goes and causes mass havoc in a Namekian village in order to obtain one of the Dragon Balls. Frieza and his henchmen had already collected five Dragon Balls, so he planned to hang on to one and steal the rest from Frieza when the opportunity arose, thus preventing Frieza from making his wish. Once Vegeta obtains the Dragon Ball from the Namekian village and hides it.
Vegeta and Zarbon enter a fierce battle and Vegeta seems to have the upper hand until Zarbon undergoes a powerful reptilian transformation. Zarbon and Vegeta resume the brutal battle, with Zarbon making sport of the Saiyan prince, pounding him around and completely dominating him. Before finishing the battle, Zarbon reveals to Vegeta that Frieza can also transform, much to his horror. Zarbon easily defeats Vegeta with multiple kicks and combos and performs a powerful piledriver, sending Vegeta headfirst into the ground and completely battered in a crater that soon filled up with sea water, which Zarbon detested going into as it would make him wet, and simply left him for dead. Zarbon returned to Frieza to relay the message of his victory, but Frieza was not satisfied. Frieza is well aware that Vegeta may know the location of one of the Dragon Balls so he sends Zarbon to go and retrieve Vegeta's battered body and bring him back in order to heal him for interrogation.
Vegeta was later dragged back to Frieza's Spaceship by Zarbon, where he healed him in a Medical Machine. Vegeta waited for the right opportunity to escape. He made a clever distraction (he blasted the wall to the outside off leading Frieza and Zarbon to believe he ran off, although he was actually hiding in the ship) and ran away with Frieza's collected Dragon Balls, dropping them inside the pools of water nearby and then recovering them. He spots Krillin flying nearby with a Dragon Ball and follows him to Bulma's hideout. Vegeta threatens harm to both of them if he doesn't get the Dragon Ball but says he will show mercy if they comply. Frieza is extremely angered and he sends Zarbon after Vegeta once more, giving him a limit of one hour. Zarbon is able to locate Vegeta, along with Krillin and Bulma. A fierce clash ensues and the now healed and fully rejuvenated Vegeta reveals that he has become far stronger from his near death experience. Zarbon cannot believe it, but he is unable to defeat Vegeta even in his transformed state. Vegeta ruthlessly slams his fist clean through Zarbon's stomach and blasts him, sending him to a watery grave in the Namekian sea.
Realizing that he can not keep the Dragon Ball from Vegeta, Krillin begrudgingly hands it over without a fight. Now in a fine mood, Vegeta spares his life and Bulma's for the time being. Vegeta now has six of the seven Dragon Balls in his grasp, and needs only one more to make his dream of immortality a reality. While en route to where he had hidden his Dragon Ball, he meets up with Gohan and hits the boy in the stomach for fun before continuing onward. After getting back to where he had hidden his Dragon Ball, Vegeta realizes that Gohan has stolen it and berates himself for letting a kid fool him. He heads back to where Bulma had made her hideout and destroys it, but to his frustration, finds that everyone had already left. He then swears to get them for this humiliation.
Once the Ginyu Force arrived on planet Namek, Frieza ordered them to retrieve the Namekian Dragon Balls, bring Vegeta back to him alive, and kill any others that got in their way. Meanwhile, Vegeta sensed the arrival of the Ginyu Force and forged an alliance with Gohan and Krillin, all three deciding that their only chance for survival was to wish for Vegeta's immortality with the Dragon Balls. Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin race back to where Vegeta was keeping his six Dragon Balls, and are about to wish for Vegeta's immortality, but Krillin hesitates out of fear of an immortal Vegeta, despite Vegeta's promises that he would not harm them. Suddenly, the Ginyu Force arrives on the island where Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin are, right next to the other six Dragon Balls. Terrified, Vegeta attempts to hide one of the Dragon Balls by throwing it far off into the sea, but Burter uses his incredible speed to catch it in mid-air. Vegeta then desperately orders Krillin to destroy the Dragon Ball he is holding so that Frieza cannot make his wish for immortality, but before Krillin can destroy it, Guldo freezes time and snatches the Dragon Ball out of his hands. Outmaneuvered, Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin look on in terror as Captain Ginyu takes the seven Dragon Balls and flies off to report to Frieza, leaving the four remaining members of the Ginyu Force to deal with Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin.
After playing Rock-Paper-Scissors to determine who would fight who, Guldo prepares to engage Gohan and Krillin. As the three begin fighting, it appears as if Gohan and Krillin have Guldo on the ropes, as Guldo is barely able to freeze time long enough to escape the two's energy blasts. Just when it seems that Gohan and Krillin will win, Guldo reveals his trump card: the ability to mentally petrify his enemies. He uses this desperate move to trap Gohan and Krillin in place as he uses telekinesis to make a skewer out of a nearby tree. He launches the skewer at the frozen Gohan and Krillin. Just when it seems like Gohan and Krillin are about to become shish kebab, Vegeta fires an energy beam at Guldo and cuts his head off, stopping the skewer just seconds away from impaling Gohan and Krillin. After Guldo's decapitated head insults Vegeta for not playing fair, the Saiyan prince disintegrates it, now fearing his fight against the brute Recoome.
With his newfound power after recovering from his battle on Earth and his battle with Zarbon, Vegeta launches into a powerful assault on Recoome, landing several powerful hits and firing an intense energy blast, the Final Crash, at Recoome that appears to take care of him. However, as the dust settles and Recoome emerges unharmed from the debris, it looks like the trio is in trouble. When Recoome effortlessly takes down Vegeta, Krillin goes in to help, believing that the only chance they have of surviving is if Vegeta survives. However, Krillin's efforts are in vain as Recoome easily knocks him aside with a single blow. Gohan then goes in to help Krillin, and despite the young warrior's newly unlocked hidden powers, Recoome manages to easily fend him off. Just when all hope seems lost, Goku lands on planet Namek and quickly rushes onto the scene alongside Vegeta, Gohan and Krillin. Goku heals Gohanm Krillin, Vegeta against Krillin's with Senzu Beans that he brought from Earth, although out of his desire to allow his rival a chance to settle the score, and partially to repay Vegeta for helping Gohan and Krillin when they were in danger of Guldo's attack. The remaining members of the Ginyu Force, agitated by the interruption of Goku's arrival, proceed to engage him in battle, but they prove to be no match for Goku, and he soundly defeats them all, knocking out Recoome (with a single hit) and Burter, and letting Jeice flee. Angered that Goku refuses to finish off Recoome and Burter, Vegeta kills them himself by cracking the unconscious Burter's neck and blowing up the fallen Recoome from behind with an Energy Wave. Goku becomes upset that Vegeta would do such a thing and Vegeta explains that by letting them live, he and Gohan's lives would be at risk.
After the fighting is over, the others state that all hope is lost as Captain Ginyu has probably already brought Frieza the Dragon Balls and Frieza may already be immortal. Krillin remarks that on Earth, the sky turns black when the Dragon is summoned, and since that has not happened, Frieza probably has not made his wish. That's when Goku fills the others in on a little secret: the Namekian Dragon Balls can only be activated when one says the correct password, and in the Namekian language. Meanwhile, Jeice arrives at Frieza's ship and requests Captain Ginyu's help to deal with Goku.
Goku tells Gohan and Krillin to fetch the Dragon Radar and locate the Dragon Balls. Captain Ginyu and Jeice arrive on the scene just as Gohan and Krillin leave. Goku asks for Vegeta's help in fighting the remaining Ginyu Force members and Vegeta agrees, but quickly flies off laughing, leaving Goku to deal with Jeice and Captain Ginyu by himself. After some short fighting, Captain Ginyu realizes that Goku is holding back, and asks that he reveal his full power. Coming to the conclusion that he can not hope to defeat Goku, he instead to use the Body Change to swap bodies with Goku, but not before fatally injuring his own body. Satisfied with his cunning trick, Captain Ginyu flies off in Goku's body, with Jeice trailing. The new Captain Ginyu in Goku's body, now wields a great power from Goku. He starts to fool Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan. Vegeta, however, realized that Goku was not himself. Krillin and Gohan were easily fooled, but immediately came to their senses that Goku is not himself when they saw Goku wearing a scouter, and hanging around Jeice. Krillin and Gohan then joined forces to stop Captain Ginyu in Goku's body. Meanwhile, Vegeta handles Jeice on his own. He swiftly kills the meddling Ginyu Force member, and heads off to fight Captain Ginyu.
Goku, now in Captain Ginyu's body, makes an alliance with Vegeta to stop Ginyu in Goku's body. As Ginyu had figured out how to use Goku's body, he took the upper hand against Krillin and Gohan. Vegeta, however, completely overpowered him and was about to finish him off. Captain Ginyu fired another change beam, which was fortunately intercepted by Goku, and both returned to their original bodies. Captain Ginyu, now in his injured old body, was no match for Goku or Vegeta, and was soon being pummeled by him. Knowing he is finished, Captain Ginyu planned another Body Switch using his change beam, with Vegeta. The beam was about to connect with Vegeta, however, Goku intervenes and tosses a frog in the middle of the attack, switching Ginyu's body with that of the frog. Vegeta merely scoffs at the powerlessness of the once-proud Captain Ginyu, and decides to not kill Goku and take his revenge on him, because he needs his help to fight Frieza. Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan take Goku into a recovery chamber, where he would begin healing.
After realizing his powerful Ginyu Force members were all taken down in battle, Frieza was furious. He fled towards his ship to find any traces of his collected Dragon Balls. Meanwhile, Vegeta stands by a rejuvenating Goku. Vegeta spares Goku only in time on his assistance against Frieza. While Vegeta falls asleep, tired after all the battles, Krillin and Gohan sneakily gather the seven Namekian Dragon Balls, and began telling their wishes. Their first wish was for Piccolo's return. Then they wished to transport him back on Namek. Their third and final wish was interrupted by an enraged Vegeta, waking up and spotting the Namekian Dragon. Frieza also realized this strange feature, and was gaining on them at high speeds. Vegeta pries Dende, the wisher of Porunga the Namekian Dragon, to wish him immortality to stop Frieza. The wish almost succeeded, but Guru, the eldest of all Nameks, died just before they could finish. Vegeta goes into a rage, but stops when he spots Frieza, and becomes slightly fearful, as Frieza looks down on them from above. He provided a sneak peek at his amazing power, but Vegeta was just able to match him.
Vegeta ordered Frieza to transform and explained that Zarbon had already mentioned that Frieza also had the ability to transform, seeing it was no longer a secret. As a result, Frieza decided to transform with some provocation from Vegeta, after telling Vegeta the fate of his own father. In this new form, Frieza was too powerful for Vegeta, and especially Krillin, Dende, and Gohan. Frieza impales Krillin, and after defeating Gohan, Frieza asks Vegeta if he will help the defenseless child, but Vegeta backs away from helping in fear. Frieza is then confronted by Piccolo, who Vegeta thinks is a worthless waste of a wish and wonders what the Namekian who lost to Nappa can possibly do against Frieza, as he does not know that Piccolo had fused with Nail to become even more powerful. In filler, while Piccolo and Frieza are fighting, Vegeta attempts to run away, but he is spotted by Frieza and kicked into a Namekian mountain. It seems Piccolo can handle Frieza in his Second Transformation. As a result, Frieza decides to transform into his most hideous form. After transforming yet again, Frieza is once again too powerful for anyone, including the fused Piccolo, who is saved by Gohan.
After effortlessly When Frieza eventually manages to deflect Gohan's Wild Rush Blaster, Vegeta realizes Frieza may be too strong for even him or Goku, and concocts a plan to reach the rank of Super Saiyan by having Krillin seriously wound him, leaving him within only an inch of his life, then having Dende heal him (because Saiyans grow increasingly stronger when they recover from near-death experiences). He fails as Frieza decides yet again to transform due to Gohan, when angered, being powerful enough to almost deter his third form. After Frieza kills Dende, Vegeta watches Gohan, Krillin and Piccolo battle the tyrant all at once with no success, and jumps in to save Gohan's life when Frieza fires another Bang Beam at him. Vegeta then declares himself a Super Saiyan and attacks Frieza directly, trying to hit Frieza with a raging flurry of punches, which Frieza manages to dodge quite easily, as his speed and power are still far superior to Vegeta's. Angered by this, Vegeta fires the Final Burst Cannon at Frieza, using all of his power, however, the tyrant still easily deflects the attack, making Vegeta lose all hope, and for the first time in his life, cry. Frieza goes on the assault and begins pummeling Vegeta, leaving him on the brink of death until the renewed Goku shows up and distracts him. Sensing Goku's increased strength and watching Goku outsmart Frieza and even kick him in the jaw, Vegeta begins laughing and taunting Frieza that Goku is the Super Saiyan who will defeat him. Frieza fires a Death Beam right through Vegeta's heart, ending the Saiyan Prince's tortured life.
Vegeta dies slowly and painfully, telling Goku that he needs to harden his heart against Frieza in order to achieve the Super Saiyan transformation, yet Goku tells him he could never stop so low as to become as heartless as him and Frieza. Then, in order to fill him with rage and to tell him about the race, he begins pouring his heart and his past out to Goku as the only other pure-blooded Saiyan left alive, this with tears rushing down the Saiyan Prince's face. He also becomes somewhat reformed; he no longer cares about immortality or conquering the universe, but becomes obsessed with becoming stronger. Vegeta continues on, begging Goku to defeat Frieza for the pride of the saiyan race. Goku in honor prepares a grave, realizing that although Vegeta did care about his race being destroyed, he was more upset that Frieza had used him as a puppet for all of his life, and no matter what he did to try and stop Frieza, he could do nothing, nearly destroying the saiyan's pride. Goku vows to take revenge for Vegeta on behalf of their race, burying the fallen prince as a sign of gratitude for Vegeta saving Gohan and helping to revive Piccolo.
After Goku is being beat by Frieza, Vegeta, King Vegeta and Bardock appear to Goku in a vision and convince him that he can defeat Frieza by becoming a Super Saiyan, giving him a very inspiration speech about Frieza's fear of the legends of the Saiyan race, how Goku should be filled with rage with the thought of his species and homeworld having been destroyed by Frieza, and convincing Goku that he needs to avenge the Saiyans, or else they will be lost to the memory of time. Vegeta is later resurrected when a wish is made with the Earth's Dragon Balls to bring back everyone killed on Planet Namek by Frieza and his men. He is revived and brought to Earth, but not before he sees that Goku has transformed into the legendary Super Saiyan warrior that Saiyan legend says will appear only every one millennia. He also attempts to launch an attack on a bewildered Frieza after the latter asked if he was a ghost, but is transported to Earth by Porunga before he can finish the attack.
Meanwhile, Goku defeats Frieza but is apparently killed in Namek's explosion. Vegeta hides his remorse for Goku by boasting happily about it until Gohan challenges him to a fight. Vegeta subdues Gohan but is stopped from hurting him seriously by Piccolo, and flies off. Desiring to learn how to become a Super Saiyan, Vegeta comes up with the idea of wishing Goku to the Check-In Station in the Other World and then wishing him back so that he will be brought to Earth instead of where Namek used to be. When the wish is made, however, Goku is revealed to have survived and refuses to be wished to Earth, promising that he will return himself later. Only in the anime, as he is unwilling to wait, Vegeta steals a Capsule Corporation spaceship and ventures out to search for Goku and bring him back.
Garlic Jr., Trunks and Androids Saga
Vegeta travels through space with the Capsule Corporation spaceship in an attempt to locate Goku and find out how to become a Super Saiyan. He eventually attacks and kills a number of Frieza's remaining minions to prove to them that their leader is dead. As some warriors are still refusing to believe him, Vegeta ruthlessly executes any remaining combatants. At one point, he senses Goku on a nearby planet and races to the other to see him, however a large asteroid gets in his way and upon destroying it finds that Goku has disappeared. He vows that he will become a Super Saiyan one day as he takes off.
One year and eight months after the events on planet Namek, Vegeta returned to Earth in Age 764, not having found Goku. Vegeta had been training during that time, and was quite a bit more powerful than before. However, he still did not achieve the Super Saiyan transformation. After calling off his search, he returns to Capsule Corporation, where Bulma forces him to take a shower and gives him a pink shirt to wear as his alternate clothing. Vegeta acts hostile towards Bulma and the others due to the mistrust between them but he finds himself speechless and submissive towards Bulma's orders, much to everyone's shock. While he is still living at Capsule Corporation, Frieza and his father King Cold are sensed on their way to Earth, Frieza having survived the explosion of Namek. However, a young man named Trunks appears, transforms into a Super Saiyan, and destroys both Frieza and his father.
After the fight, the boy tells them that Goku will soon arrive. The Z Fighters (Vegeta, Piccolo, Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, Yamcha, Gohan, and Krillin), along with Bulma and Puar, wait for 2 hours for Goku's arrival. Vegeta is curious as to who the stranger really is and is jealous of the young warrior's ability to become a Super Saiyan, seeing him as an obstacle to his goal of becoming the strongest fighter in the universe by obtaining the Super Saiyan form himself as well as being in denial about Future Trunks being a Saiyan. Eventually, Goku shows up and he explains that he ended up on Planet Yardrat and learned Instant Transmission from the natives. Future Trunks speaks with Goku privately, after testing their Saiyan's power briefly against one another. He tells Goku that his father is Vegeta, his mother is Bulma, and he is a Super Saiyan from 20 years in the future. Future Trunks then gives Goku an antidote for a heart virus that Future Trunks says Goku will develop in a few years time. He also says that in three years, two Androids, created by former Red Ribbon Army scientist Dr. Gero, will appear, kill all of the Z Fighters, and begin a reign of terror over the Earth.
During the next three years, the Z Fighters began to train very hard. Vegeta was no exception, as he trained the hardest to become a Super Saiyan. After witnessing the lower class Goku and another stranger he does not even recognize as from his race being Super Saiyans, Vegeta trains with pure determination. This eventually leads to him getting injured in a training-related accident and being hospitalized temporarily, and causes Bulma to get closer to him, rendering Yamcha jealous. Vegeta and Bulma develop an intimate relationship and, as a result, Bulma gives birth to a son named Trunks born in Age 766. However, Vegeta shows little to no interest in his son due to his priority to surpass Goku and his inability to act as a father.
During this time, Vegeta trains himself intensely, determined to become a Super Saiyan like Goku. Training at 450 times normal gravity, Vegeta pushes his strength to the limit, but still finds himself unable to achieve the level of Super Saiyan. Eventually, Vegeta takes the ship with the Gravity Machine on it to a planet so he can train without distraction. While on this planet, Vegeta is forced to defend the ship from a sudden meteor shower, a task which proves to be difficult for him as he is weakened from his training. Just as it seems that both himself and the ship are going to be destroyed by a giant meteor, Vegeta, out of sheer hopelessness and desperation, finally becomes a Super Saiyan and is easily able to destroy the meteor.
In Age 767 on May 12, after that the prophesied Android 19 and Android 20 appear and wreak havoc a year later. Vegeta is at age 35 at the time. When the heart disease begins to attack Goku while fighting Android 19, Vegeta appears out of nowhere and kicks the Android in the face, saving Goku. Vegeta tells them to give Goku his medicine. Goku is then flown home by Yamcha, where the heart medicine is given to him. Vegeta then greatly surprises everyone by transforming into a Super Saiyan. Vegeta then begins to effortlessly demolish Android 19 with his increased power and after ripping the Android's hands off, he finishes it off with his Big Bang Attack.
Vegeta seems to be far more powerful than both of the Androids, and Android 20 decides to flee. During this time, Future Trunks arrives and informs everyone that Android 19 and 20 are not the androids of his future world. After Vegeta takes a Senzu Bean to recover his power, Piccolo calls Future Trunks by name, causing Vegeta to realize who he really is; Vegeta is initially shocked by this realization, although he is also apparently resolved as this explains how the boy could become a Super Saiyan. Android 20 tries to kill Bulma, baby Trunks, and Yajirobe (all who had been wanting to see the battle) to escape but are saved by Future Trunks, who questions why Vegeta didn't try to save Bulma and their child. Vegeta replies they are no concern to him and continues his pursuit of the android. After pursuing Android 20 (who is really Dr. Gero, with his brain in a cyborg body) Vegeta and the rest of the team discover Android 16, Android 17, and Android 18, who were activated by Android 20 in a desperate attempt to save himself. These Androids were far more powerful than either Dr. Gero, or Android 19. However, Android 17 crushes Dr. Gero's head, not being loyal to his creator at all.
The three new Androids fly away from Dr. Gero's secret laboratory, but the Z Fighters follow them, and Vegeta challenges them to battle. He fights with Android 18, and seems to be doing fairly well at first and surprises the Androids with his newfound power, but is eventually defeated due to the fact that Android 18 has infinite power while Vegeta has to use all his power to fight her. When Piccolo, Tien, and Future Trunks step in, they too are beaten into submission. The Androids then head off to look for Goku in order to destroy him - the mission they were made for. Krillin, the only Z Fighter not to have gotten involved in the skirmish with the Androids, gives everyone Senzu Beans, which revived all of his fallen comrades.
Imperfect Cell, Perfect Cell and Cell Games Saga
Vegeta then spends three days standing on a cliff, thinking about his defeat. His anger erupts, causing him to transform into a Super Saiyan. He decides that there must be a level beyond Super Saiyan, and resolves to reach it. Vegeta later senses Piccolo's power, he is shocked to hear he fused with Kami. Piccolo then informs Vegeta and the others about Dr. Gero's creation Cell, Vegeta is especially stunned to hear that Cell has some of his cells and Goku's as well as others. He resolves to ascend higher than Super Saiyan and flies off to find a way. He is approached by Goku who tells him of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber at The Lookout and Vegeta theorizes to attain higher power if he trains for nearly a year (a day outside) in the room. Vegeta goes in the room with Future Trunks.
After Imperfect Cell manages to absorb Android 17 and becomes even stronger than Piccolo, Vegeta and Future Trunks emerge from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and confront Semi-Perfect Cell. After powering up into a Super Saiyan Second Grade, Vegeta completely dominated Semi-Perfect Cell, and even made the evil android beg him to allow him to absorb Android 18, in order to become complete, and make the fight more interesting. This strategy was obvious to everyone, including Vegeta, and he initially refuses. However, eager to show off his new power, Vegeta eventually permits Semi-Perfect Cell to do as he wishes, even going so far as to fight Future Trunks and stop him from preventing Semi-Perfect Cell's attainment of his perfect form. Vegeta doubted Future Trunks would fight back, though he is proven wrong when Trunks actually blasts him away from the battle into the sea, in the process drawing Vegeta's blood.
Vegeta became proud that his son dared to attack him but becomes angry at his wound, he quickly returns to the battlefield, just as Cell has obtained his Perfect form. Cell fights Vegeta again, but this time, Vegeta is the weaker one, with Vegeta angry that Cell was not taking their battle seriously. Vegeta had to resort to using his Final Flash technique, which, to his credit, was too strong for Cell to block. He dares Perfect Cell to take the attack head on, and Perfect Cell, confident that it will not harm him, stays put as the beam hits him. Though it failed to destroy Perfect Cell, the attack's power was obvious, as Perfect Cell was missing a third of his body from the blast. When Vegeta thought he had won, Perfect Cell regenerated, though, thanks to Piccolo's Cells, and then badly beat the weakened Vegeta. Perfect Cell then fought Future Trunks, who managed to put up a fight against the perfect Android, but he was defeated as well, when he gave up after realizing the 3rd Grade Super Saiyan form was too slow to fight Cell. Instead of killing the defeated Z Warriors, Perfect Cell proposes a Tenkaichi Budokai so that he can have some fun before destroying Earth. Cell then broadcasts a message to tell Earth that the tournament would commence in ten days.
During this time, Goku and Gohan got their turn in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and began training, mostly for the purpose of Gohan becoming a Super Saiyan, his hidden power would be very useful then if he could at least keep up with Perfect Cell normally. Goku and Gohan then appear from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber with Vegeta being shocked they exit so early. He is surprised at them achieving the Full-Powered Super Saiyan state and how they are normal in demeanor. After talking with Goku, Vegeta then decides to once again enter the Hyperbolic Time Chamber hopeful to gain an increase in power as he had before but this time decided to do things differently, first by entering alone instead of with Future Trunks deciding that he would just slow him down and to instead gain control over the original Super Saiyan transformation as Goku and Gohan had done before rather than increasing his power as much as possible. Vegeta then reappeared from the chamber disappointed at how little increase in power he had achieved.
All the Z Warriors then gathered at the tournament after nine days had passed. On the day of the tournament, the martial champion Mr. Satan and his trainees attack Perfect Cell first, but they are easily defeated. Then the tournament truly begins, as Goku is the first of our heroes to fight Perfect Cell, even though he already knows that he will probably not be able to beat him. He matches Perfect Cell blow for blow and puts up a good fight; but as Goku expected, Perfect Cell is quite a bit stronger then him. Goku eventually quits the fight after a huge Kamehameha that decreases his own power, and remembers the training inside the Hyperbolic Time Chamber that he and Gohan went through. Goku is confident in his son's abilities and sends the 11-year-old Gohan out to fight Perfect Cell, assuring Perfect Cell that if Gohan could not beat him, no one would be able to. Gohan reluctantly fights Perfect Cell, but Gohan does not show the same love for fighting and confidence that Goku does, and it is that lack of interest in fighting and lack of confidence that gets him into trouble. Gohan does not use his full strength and Perfect Cell makes seven miniature versions of himself to fight the Z Fighters and eventually kill them.
This charade continues until Android 16 is killed. This cause Gohan's dormant power to erupts in his rage and he transforms into a Super Saiyan 2. Vegeta was shocked to watch Gohan with his awakened power, as the latter dominates the perfect android until a well placed kick to the stomach makes Perfect Cell regurgitate Android 18, forcing him to become semi-perfect again. No longer at his ultimate power, he begins to self destruct as a last resort. Vegeta is further shocked when Goku sacrifices himself by teleporting Cell to King Kai's Planet, and is killed in the explosion. Semi-Perfect Cell survives, and comes back in his perfect form, but due to his Saiyan genetics, Super Perfect Cell comes back stronger after his near fatal injury.
He returns to Earth, where he kills Future Trunks with a Full Power Death Beam. Vegeta, distraught to see his son get killed and guilt-ridden for rejecting his efforts to help him, attacks Super Perfect Cell in a fit of rage, blasting the android straight on with an incredible volley of Ki Blasts. When it is all over, Super Perfect Cell emerges, completely unharmed. He knocks Vegeta aside and then attempts to finish him off once and for all with a ki blast, but Gohan throws himself in the way of the blast, losing the use of his left arm in the process. What follows is a turning point in the life of the Warrior Prince: seeing that his pride and rage has taken the victory from a brother Saiyan and warrior, Vegeta, for the first time in his life, apologizes to Gohan for his actions.
During the Kamehameha struggle, Vegeta observes the battle and briefly expresses some doubts about the other Z-fighters (namely Tien Shinhan, Yamcha, and Krillin) going to aid Piccolo in trying to distract Cell long enough to have Gohan overpower Cell, thinking their actions won't make a difference either way. However, after witnessing them distract Cell long enough to yell at them for interfering, Vegeta starts wondering whether it would actually work. He then has some remaining doubts, before eventually becoming a Super Saiyan again. After an intense Kamehameha duel, Super Perfect Cell is about to finish Gohan but is finally defeated by Gohan's Kamehameha after Vegeta distracts him with a Galick Blazer to the back, allowing Gohan's beam to finally overcome Super Perfect Cell's.
Realizing that both Goku and Gohan are superior to him not only in power but in character and honor as well, Vegeta understands that he was beaten by Goku in more ways than one. After a funeral is held for Goku's death, he bids farewell to Future Trunks as he returns back to his tmeline after he along with everyone is revived by the Dragon Balls. Vegeta begins to settle down on Earth and start to become quite fond of it. he marries Bulma and begins to truly care about his family. With Goku dead and gone, and perhaps due to guilt from allowing Perfect Cell to come to be and wreak havoc on the world, Vegeta vows to never fight again, and resolves to be a better husband and father.
Bojack Unbound (Movie)
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 compete in the Tenkaichi Dai Budōkai. When he senses that Future Trunks is in danger, he goes over to help, taking Trunks' sword with him. Vegeta is one of the fighters that fight Bojack and his Galaxy Soldiers, but is defeated. However after Gohan manages to defeat Bjack, Vegeta once again regain his fighting spirit and continues his training.
Great Saiyaman, 25th World Tournament and Babidi Saga
Seven years after the Cell Games in Age 774, despite lacking a worthy opponent, and having abandoned his role as a fighter, Vegeta continues his vigorous training at Bulma's house, coming much closer to Gohan's Super Saiyan 2 power due to Gohan focusing on his studies. Now that Goku is gone, Vegeta's goal is no longer to become stronger than him, but to make Trunks stronger than both Gohan and Goku's second son, Goten, as he strongly believes Gohan's Super Saiyan 2 was Goku's doing. He is first seen emerging from a gravity room after training with Trunks, when Gohan comes to have fun with Trunks. While Gohan greets Vegeta kindly, Vegeta gives Gohan a cold look and tells him that he should've continued training, even in peaceful times.
Later, upon hearing from Gohan that Goku will be coming to Earth for 24 hours to fight in the 25th Tenkaichi Budōkai, Vegeta boasts and claims that he will beat Gohan, Goten, and Goku in the Tenkaichi Budōkai, believing that he has surpassed Gohan in strength. During training for the Tenkaichi Budōkai, Vegeta is shown to be a rather harsh and stern teacher towards Trunks, commenting rudely on Trunks's inability to adapt to the intense gravity in the training room, but at the same time worrying about his well-being by asking him to rest. He then becomes shocked and proud when Trunks effortlessly goes Super Saiyan and adapts well. Vegeta orders Trunks to attack him, promising to take him to the amusement park if he manages to hit him in the face. Trunks manages to land a blow on Vegeta, who strikes him to the floor. Impressed with his son's fighting abilities, Vegeta decides to take him to the park as promised. However, Vegeta becomes slightly irritated when he hears that Goten is also a Super Saiyan and only slightly weaker than Trunks, and vows to make the gap between Trunks and Goten's power as big as possible.
Vegeta then arrives on papaya island with his family and in turn joins up with the Z Fighters in order to greet Goku on his return. When Goku appears, Vegeta, with his son, look on as the others greet Goku in happiness. They then all take turns hitting the punch reader machine. While the Z Fighters lower their strength to hit the machine, Vegeta hits it without holding back, completely destroying the machine, to the disgrace of the others. Vegeta is eager to fight Goku in the tournament to prove that he was the stronger one and to his delight, his first match is with Goku. Goku meets his son Goten and the tournament starts. When Trunks won the Junior Division final match against Goten, Vegeta is very proud of his son's victory. Soon, Shin and Kibito appear and tell Goku that a wizard named Babidi is about to unleash an evil monster named Majin Buu on the world, and they must help stop him. Majin Buu needs energy from fighters so he can be freed from the shell he is trapped inside. Goku prepares to go with Shin, but Vegeta is enraged - he was scheduled to fight Goku and thinks Goku is trying to wiggle out of it. He joins Goku, Gohan, Videl, Piccolo and Krillin. They follow Shin to Babidi's spaceship.
However, the Z Fighters is ambushed. Piccolo and Krillin are turned to stone statues by Dabura, one of Babidi's henchmen. Videl returns to the tournament, advised that the fight against Babidi might be too dangerous for her as she is inexperienced. Goku, Gohan, Vegeta and Shin enter Babidi's ship. They fight their way down the levels, encountering Babidi's fighters at each level. Vegeta was the first of the three to fight, after winning a match of Rock-Paper-Scissors. He fights the minion Pui Pui with absolute ease, not even having to transform into a Super Saiyan. Seeing Pui-Pui fall to Vegeta's might, Babidi transports Pui Pui and the others to Pui Pui's home planet Zoon, which has 10x the gravity of earth. Vegeta, having already trained under 500X gravity when preparing for the androids, is not fazed at all by this change (also note that Vegeta grew up on Planet Vegeta, which already had 10X the gravity of earth). Vegeta then proceeds to eliminate Pui-Pui swiftly by killing him instantly with a point-blank energy blast, completely disintegrating the minion. Goku was up next, and he fought a pet creature of Babidi known as Yakon. Goku manages to defeat the creature by forcing him to absorb too much of his energy and blow up, briefly giving Vegeta a glimpse of Goku's Super Saiyan 2 powers.
At this point, Vegeta realizes that even though he has 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 have an argument about how to best handle the Babidi/Majin Buu threat. Dabura notices Vegeta's anger quickly boil and rise, and he retreats saying that there is a different fighter who is more powerful. They are confused, as Shin says that Dabura is the most powerful Majin. Suddenly, Vegeta begins acting strangely, screaming that something invisible is attacking him. Shin 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 Shin, but he refuses, saying that he will only fight Goku.
Babidi is surprised by Majin Vegeta's ability to fight his mind control, but obediently transports the three fighters and Shin back to the World Martial Arts Tournament. Majin Vegeta, eager to fight Goku, blows up part of the spectator bleachers, killing dozens of people and almost killing his wife, trying to convince Goku to fight him. After taunting Goku for a while, Goku eventually agrees. Shin 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, where they proceed to fight. Majin Vegeta reveals to Goku that he deliberately let Babidi control him in order to allow his evilness to resurface, which would allow Vegeta to fight Goku as he once was, saying I was cold and ruthless, unencumbered by foolish emotion!" He further elaborates that he came to realize that he had become a normal person; he has a wife and son he adores and has started to like living on Earth, but he has become ashamed of the change within him and believes his ties to his family and the planet made him weak. After that, Majin Vegeta and Goku both power-up to Super Saiyan 2, with power levels just surpassing that of Gohan's when he fought Super Perfect Cell. Then Goku and Majin Vegeta fight furiously, with each fighter having one glorious moment after one another.
Majin Buu, Fusion and Kid Buu Saga
Throughout the battle, Vegeta informs Goku of how he began to enjoy comfortable family life with Bulma and Trunks, but his Saiyan nature began to disagree with this new cozy, non-violent lifestyle, making Vegeta feel weak and useless, thus, Vegeta wanted to retread the path he was on a long time ago, evil and ruthless. Goku tries to persuade Vegeta that his life has changed, and he can still easily enjoy being a competitive fighter with a loving family, but Vegeta brushes this notion aside as nonsense. Eventually, Goku calls the fight to a halt because he senses Majin Buu's extraordinary power, meaning he has been released from to the energy spent by Goku and Majin Vegeta which Babidi used to revive the sleeping Majin Buu. Majin Vegeta refuses to oblige, even when told Majin Buu will kill his family. Goku angrily berates him for lying about this because, even in his current state, Vegeta still has a soul and conscience. Majin Vegeta agrees to postpone the fight. 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 knocks him out.
Majin Vegeta then takes the Senzu Bean and goes to fight Majin Buu by himself: as he felt that he owed Goku for the destruction wrecked during the Cell Games and allowing Majin Buu to be freed. He wants to atone his sins by fighting Majin Buu to the death and saving the Earth. He also believed Gohan was killed as he cannot sense his ki and feels genuine remorse, vowing to avenge Gohan. Destroying Babidi's spaceship, Majin Vegeta fights against Majin Buu, but cannot win, even his most powerful attacks only slightly hurt Buu. He inflicts many blows on Majin Buu, but the pink monster seems invincible. Majin Buu then proceeds to constrict Vegeta using his Potbelly Attack and mercilessly beats the Saiyan Prince into submission.
After Trunks saves Vegeta from one of Buu's attacks, Vegeta decides the only way to destroy Buu is to sacrifice himself. For the first time since Trunks was a baby, Vegeta holds his son close and tells him how proud he is of him, before knocking him and Goten out. He leaves them in Piccolo's care, and then uses Final Explosion in an attempt to kill Majin Buu in a spherical explosion, and narrating an emotional goodbye to his family and Goku. In the end, all that is left of Vegeta is his body that turns to stone and then falls to the ground, leaving a few broken parts that quickly scatter. This technique does not kill Majin Buu, as Majin Buu regenerates from the pieces of him which were left. Everyone finds out about Vegeta's sacrifice, and mourns the Saiyan Prince's demise.
Later on in the saga, Vegeta is given the chance of another shot at Majin Buu by King Yemma, which Vegeta accepts. He returns to Earth but unfortunately, he is still dead. He finds Goku (now brought back to life, thanks to Shin's ancestor sacrificing himself) who tells him that everyone has been killed or absorbed by Majin Buu. Majin Buu was now much more powerful than when Vegeta first fought him. As a result, Goku asks and pleads to 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, thinking he was mocking him by not using this form during their last confrontation. 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. Goku and Vegeta are then confronted by Super Buu.
Fighting at Super Saiyan 2, Goku and Vegeta were absolutely no match for him. As Buu was coming down with a finisher, Goku mentions the fact that Bulma has been killed, and Trunks and the remaining Z Fighters have been absorbed. Enraged and devastated by the loss of his family, 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. They then 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 being turned to a 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 Saiyan 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. Stating that nothing is worse than being fused with Goku forever, Vegeta crushes the Potaras to powder without hesitation. Goku and Vegeta fight their way through Super Buu's body to the brain, where they find not only Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Piccolo but also the original fat form of Majin Buu. 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 think they have won until Super Buu regenerates and defeats them. Super Buu's power had tremendously been decreased in comparison to when he fought Vegito. However, he was still stronger than both Goku and Vegeta, and to make matters worse, 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 of. Super Buu gets frightened at what Vegeta is about to do, and pleads for the Saiyan prince to stop, only further convincing Vegeta to tear them. Vegeta, with sadistic glee, then pulls the pod, causing Super Buu's mental-avatar to gruesomely 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 and morphs back into his original form, Kid Buu.
Vegeta and Goku have a small conversation afterwards, with Vegeta making fun of Goku because he was so worried that he just shrank. Kid Buu decides to destroy the earth in his wake with his Planet Burst. Goku and Vegeta could not stop Kid Buu's horrible power, and the two Saiyans fly quickly to try and reach the now-free absorption victims, but Goku made a detour and picked up Mr. Satan, the young Namekian healer Dende, and Mr. Satan's pet Labrador puppy, Bee. There was no time to save Gohan, Goten, Trunks, or Piccolo, as Kid Buu's attack was speeding towards them. Suddenly Kibito Kai appears using Kai Kai to transport himself, Goku, Vegeta, and the three others to the Sacred World of the Kai. Vegeta blames Goku for the needless death of their sons. Vegeta also gets further incensed when he learned that, while Vegeta was still dead and in the afterlife, Goku bribed Old Kai with allowing the latter to grope/gain nude pictures of Bulma, lashing out at Goku for his senselessness and stated that he should have just used Goku's own wife instead.
However, they get happy as Dende tells them that they can revive everyone and Earth with the Namekian Dragon Balls. They soon watch through a Crystal Ball and see that Kid Buu has regenerated and using Kai Kai while destroying planet after planet in search of them. Kid Buu knew they escaped, and as a result decided to hunt them down. Goku and Vegeta decide it can not go on, and power up to entice him to come to the sacred planet to fight them both. Kid Buu answers their call, and quickly makes himself visible at the planet. After playing a quick game of Rock-Paper-Scissors to decide who faces Kid Buu first, Goku wins and starts his fight., Goku powers up to a Super Saiyan 2 and fights well against the child version of Majin Buu. However, Kid Buu powers up and Goku then powers up to a Super Saiyan 3 to try and match his power. 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 is dominated and cannot match Kid Buu in power.
Goku recovers in the nick of time and begins fighting again at his full strength. Vegeta 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. 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. He was beaten viciously, but would not give up (even shocking Kid Buu).
Later, the good Majin Buu took Vegeta's place after being spit out. However, Goku was unable to get his energy back, reverting into his base form. Vegeta realized that Goku could not defeat Kid Buu by using his power alone, and devised a plan for Goku to create a Super Spirit Bomb with energy given by all the people on Earth in order to destroy Kid Buu, which Goku thinks at first will not succeed. 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. Vegeta tries to convince the people of Earth to give their energy to defeat Buu, but they do not listen to his please.
All hope seems lost until Mr. Satan orders the humans to contribute energy, which the humans then do. When Goku completes the Super Spirit Bomb, he can not throw it because Kid Buu was holding the injured Vegeta down. However, the good Majin Buu tackles Kid Buu away so Mr. Satan could move Vegeta away. Finally, Goku launches it. After the Dragon Balls are used to erase the memories of Kid Buu from the Earthlings, he is later seen attending a party at Capsule Corp in West city with his family and friends. Goku and Vegeta finally become friends after being rivals for many years, though they still keep a friendly rivalry between them.
Wrath of the Dragon (Movie)
Months after the defeat of Kid Buu in Age 774, Vegeta saves Gohan's life before he is squeezed to death by Hirudegarn by firing a Ki Blast at his arm. He then proceeds to fight the monster, as he is angered that Hirudegarn had ruined the Capsule Corporation headquarter building on his first day off in a month; he transforms into a Super Saiyan 2 and rushes to attack him.
After a brief fight in which he is easily outclassed, 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 of his energy to create a barrier strong enough to withstand the attack. He is later shown at the end of the movie sitting on a rock whilst the Z Fighters bid farewell to Tapion.
Yo! Son Goku and Friends Return!!! (OVA Jump Special)
Two years after the end of the defeat of Kid Buu in Age 776, two remnants of Frieza's Galactic Frieza Army, Avo and Cado 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 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 non-aggressive fighter and the fact Tarble could not handle it on his own. He is, however, respectful by Tarble's wife and even returns her bow in kind.
Nonetheless, Vegeta is fine with helping his brother out and actually wants to handle Avo and Cado 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 longest 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 Avo and Cado use a cloning technique and tip the odds. Vegeta comments on Trunks forgetting basics which Bulma claims is because he does not 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. After Gohan's coaching assistance returns the favor to Goten and Trunks, Avo and Cado merge 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 wrecks 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. Afterwards Avo and Cado 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 look on in embarrassment.
Dragon Ball Super
God of Destruction Beerus and Golden Frieza Saga
Before the events leading up to Beerus' arrival, Mr. Satan offers his money from saving the world to Vegeta while he is eating lunch, however Vegeta declines it because his family already has enough.
4 years after the defeat of Kid Buu in Age 778, Vegeta takes the unusual step to take time off from his training and go on a family vacation with Bulma and Trunks. Vegeta is riding on top of Bulma's aircraft while heading to the resort. Vegeta is disinterested while shopping with Bulma and Trunks. While Trunks is trying on clothes, Vegeta was asked by Bulma why he decided to come on vacation with them. He tells her that he only went because he is keeping a promise he made to Trunks at the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai. Bulma tells Vegeta that he has changed so much since the fight with Majin Buu and he has gotten soft towards Trunks, but he denies this. Vegeta, Trunks, and Bulma continue doing activities afterward.
While Trunks was carrying multiple gifts, Bulma gets furious with Vegeta for not helping but Vegeta responds that he was hungry. The three go out and eat. When the chefs brought out an octopus, Vegeta pulls one of its tentacles but he gets sprayed with ink getting him angry but they leave immediately. At night time, Vegeta, Bulma, and Trunks go to a festival but Vegeta was separated. Vegeta wants to leave because he knows that Goku is training even though he has defeated Majin Buu so he wants to train too. Vegeta gets called out by the singer on stage, wanting him to go on stage to dance. Vegeta gets furious by the cheers and the shoving and blasts off from the resort. Vegeta goes back to Capsule Corporation to train and surpass Goku one day.
Vegeta continued his training while the rest of the gang attended, also with the exception of Goku, Bulma's birthday party. While finishing his 150 times gravity, Vegeta gets interrupted by Capsule Corporation's secretary, that Bulma called she wants to tell Vegeta to go to her party. Vegeta, however, is disinterested and keeps training, but he later decides to go. When King Kai alerts him about Beerus coming to Earth, Vegeta was unconcerned until he learned that Goku fought Beerus and lost by two shots. When Beerus arrived, he was playing around with Vegeta which got him angry. However, Vegeta does not recognize who Beerus is until he gets paralyzed by him, being reminded of being paralyzed by Beerus a long time ago. Vegeta then cast his pride aside to ensure Beerus stayed in a good mood until Majin Buu made Beerus mad by not sharing his pudding with him and Whis. Vegeta tries to stay back from fighting Beerus knowing what he can do. Vegeta gets yelled at by Bulma and was told to get Beerus out of the party. Without luck trying to calm Beerus down, Vegeta watches the battles between Majin Buu, Tien Shinhan, Piccolo, Android 18, and Gotenks.
Being the only warrior left, Vegeta engages Beerus in his Super Saiyan form but gets paralyzed and gets thrown into the ground. Vegeta's heads gets smashed by Beerus's foot and gets compared to his father, being called a weakling. Vegeta is on the verge of facing death until Bulma walks up to Beerus and slaps him for messing up her party. As Beerus is about to retaliate, Vegeta pleads for Beerus to not hurt her but when he slaps her, Vegeta flies into a furious rage. Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan 2 and charges at Beerus. Vegeta strikes at Beerus multiple times and starts to fight Beerus throughout the ocean. After Vegeta blasted a Galick Gun at Beerus, Beerus states that he has not used a tenth of his power in a long while. With this said, Vegeta gets flicked back towards the deck of the ship. Beerus decides that he would give the Earthlings another chance to save Earth in a game of rock-paper-scissors. Oolong is Beerus' contestant in the match but Oolong loses. Vegeta and the rest of the Z Fighters are powerless from stopping the destruction of Earth until Goku arrives and ask for more time to summon Shenron and learn more about Super Saiyan God.
After summoning Shenron and learning that six righteous Saiyans are needed for the ritual to create a Super Saiyan God, Piccolo claims that Vegeta isn't righteous but Master Roshi and Chi-Chi defend him and declares him as righteous for being a good family man. After the completion of the transformation, Vegeta watches the battle between Super Saiyan God Goku and Beerus on the ship while most the crew went in Bulma's aircraft. When Piccolo and Whis are bickering at each other, Vegeta fires a ki blast at the two out of annoyance. As Goku is falling toward Earth after a collision with Beerus, Vegeta catches Goku before he could hit the ground. Beerus does not destroy Earth, falling asleep doing so. Whis takes Beerus home afterward. Later that day, Goku tells Vegeta that he could reach Super Saiyan God next time they need it. Vegeta tells him that he will surpass Goku and Super Saiyan God.
Afterwards, Vegeta is practicing his bingo dance while watching aerobic videos but he is mad that he wasn't able to show it off.
In Age 779, Vegeta has been training in the wilderness for several days but is angry that his power level remains the same. He returns to Capsule Corporation and encounters Whis with Bulma. He wants Whis to train him but first he has to become a God of Destruction. Vegeta says that he'll show Whis the tastiest food on Earth to be his student. Whis accepts this. First, Vegeta took him to different restaurants but Whis has already been there because of Bulma. He then tries to cook himself but fails miserably. He deduces that Bulma had been hiding the world's most delicious food from Whis which was instant ramen noodles. After finding Whis finds the ramen noodles delicious, he takes Vegeta in as his student and takes him to Beerus' Planet for training.
After six months has passed, he is waiting for Whis return from Earth. Whis has Goku along with him. Goku notes that Vegeta has gotten stronger and he may have surpassed him. Vegeta along with Goku goes to Beerus' room to After they change his sheets, they continued doing house work. Later on, they trained with Whis. In block training, Whis has Vegeta's weights twice the weight of Goku's because he has been training with him longer. Vegeta and Goku have to try to get across a path before they get lost in the ground below, into another dimension. That night, while Goku goes to sleep, Vegeta continues pulling weights to get stronger. The next day, Vegeta and Goku train to hit Whis. However, Whis stops the sparring match because they lack the speed to touch him. Whis says that Vegeta overthinks the situation so he needs to relax like Goku.
While Frieza has gotten revived on Earth, Goku senses his energy but doesn't know what it is. Vegeta, who is unaware of the situation, tells him to ignore it and continue doing housework. Later, Vegeta and Goku are sparring under the supervision of Whis and somehow tap into the power of a new transformation and told Beerus, when he woke up, that he wanted to match and surpass Goku's power and jokes that Whis can be a klutz sometimes when he asked. Beerus suggests to send Goku and Vegeta to That Place so they can train to get stronger quicker. While in that place, Goku and Vegeta cannot move until Vegeta figures out that they shouldn't have their ki leaking out. They also recognize that the place they're in is similar to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber but filled with godly ki and no signs of an exit.
Vegeta and Goku are delivering blows to each other. They are suddenly released from that place because Whis needed his staff to give Beerus more food. However, the food is gone because Vegeta and Goku ate them while in that place. Beerus gets angry and then chases Vegeta and Goku into the woods for eating his pizza. Goku says that they had no choice but to eat the food because they were getting hungry. The Oracle Fish comes to tell Whis that he received a message from Bulma, telling him that Vegeta and Goku are needed on Earth. Vegeta and Goku need a way to get to Earth. Whis offered but time was a problem. Goku tried using Instant Transmission but Earth is too far for him to sense anyone. However, after trying, Goku is able to sense Gohan when he powered up due to Piccolo's death. Goku's hand is held out for Vegeta to hold on, but Vegeta goes for his shoulder instead. As soon as they get to Earth, Vegeta gets rid of Ginyu, who possessed Tagoma's body, because he could interfere in their battle against Frieza.
When Goku asks how Frieza has been revived, Vegeta says that the Earth's Dragon Balls were used. Frieza powers up into his final form to combat Goku. Vegeta is surprised that Frieza could be that level of power. He then wants to get a shot at Frieza but Goku says that since he took out Ginyu, he takes him instead. Vegeta watches the battle between Goku and Frieza. While they are fighting, Frieza deliberately takes shots at Bulma so Vegeta saves her. He later gets angry at them because they aren't going all out with their power. Vegeta charges at Goku and kicks him in the back while they are fighting. This leaves Goku confused and they eventually duke it out for a while, impressing Frieza about Vegeta's loyalty and leaving the others worried that Vegeta might return to Frieza's side. When Frieza interrupts their duel, Vegeta congratulates the tyrant for this resurrection and claps so long, fast, and loud that Frieza becomes annoyed by it, even he appreciated it at first. After a bit of a snide remark, Vegeta gets ready to fight Frieza and tells him that would never work for him again and he tells him that he wants to get his revenge on Goku first. Eventually, Vegeta decides to stand on the sidelines once more and wait just a little bit longer.
When Frieza transforms into his new Golden Frieza form, he smiles at first, but then looks astonished at the sight of the new power-up and Frieza had Goku on the ropes, Vegeta called him an "imbecile" and ignored Bulma asking him to join the fight against them. Later on, when Vegeta thinks Goku is going to continue being oblivious, he offers to step in and kill Frieza himself but Goku kept insisting that he "almost got him" and Vegeta eventually leaves Goku with Frieza despite the fact that he doesn't trust his "almosts". Goku almost beats Frieza and asks him to leave for a rematch for a later time but Sorbet shots him his Bad Ring Laser and critically injures Goku even further leading Vegeta to step in save Goku when Frieza tries to kill him with a couple of ki blasts.
Vegeta then explains to Frieza that he can't afford to let Goku be killed because it's because of him that he pursues the path to power and tells Goku that he is an idiot despite Whis warning him that this outcome would happen. Vegeta then kicks Goku toward the location of Krillin, Gohan, and others and deflects Frieza's Death Beam towards Sorbet, killing him in the process. Vegeta then proceeds to fight Frieza in Goku's place and, to everyone's (except Goku's) surprise, he too, turns into a Super Saiyan Blue, which Goku explains that this power is purely his own. Vegeta revels in scaring Frieza and proclaims that he will send Frieza back to Hell and easily dominates over the exhausted Golden Frieza until he reverts into his Final form. He was about to kill Frieza with a Big Bang Attack until Frieza uses his Earth Breaker technique to blow up the Earth and that in turn, kills Vegeta and everyone else on the planet, except all of those shielded by Beerus and Whis.
The event was later undone by Whis' Temporal Do-Over technique as Goku kills Frieza himself in his Super Saiyan Blue form after Vegeta teleports himself out of the way of the Kamehameha. Vegeta gets angry with Goku for stealing his kill but then Bulma and others explained about what happened when he died and came to conclusion that he would have died if Goku hadn't interfered thanks to Whis. Vegeta later attends the party thrown by Bulma and joins his friends and family. Goku later asks Vegeta if they should practice working together more often but Vegeta refuses, which Goku agrees to making them both happy that they finally agree on something for once. After Goku (while as a Super Saiyan Blue) is nearly killed from a sneak attack made by Sorbet and Frieza, Vegeta uses his Super Saiyan Blue form to easily dominate Golden Frieza. Before he could finsh the fight, Frieza blows up the earth in a last atempt of revenge. After whis uses his temporal do ocer, Vegeta is saved by Goku afte rhe destroys Frieza once and for all with a God Kamehameha.
Universe 6 and Copy Vegeta Saga
Sometime after the battle against Golden Frieza in Age 779, Vegeta continues his training with Goku and Whis. On Beerus' planet, Vegeta and Goku are sparring. The two are fighting evenly until Goku commences with using Instant Transmission, furiating Vegeta. Vegeta begins to lose his cool, as pointed out by Whis. Before Goku could strike Vegeta, Vegeta turns Super Saiyan Blue and blasts Goku. Goku gets mad and turns Super Saiyan Blue too. Champa and Vados unexpectedly show up on Beerus' planet. When Whis is told to go get Beerus, Goku starts asking questions to Champa but Vados responds. They are told that Champa is a God of Destruction from Universe 6 and Beerus' twin brother. She even comments that she is Whis' sister and that she is a little stronger than Whis is but Whis disagrees. A while later, Vegeta is told by Whis that there are twelve universes and the sixth and seventh universes are twin universes and that there is an Earth in Universe 6. After Champa is informed that his Earth's Humans have been wiped out by a war, he challenges Beerus to a five-on-five tournament using warriors from their own respective universes.
After Whis explains why Beerus and Champa don't fight each other anymore, they discuss the details for the tournament. The rules will be the same as the Tenkaichi Budokai and will be in five Earth days on the Nameless Planet at 10 a.m. If Champa won, he will use the Super Dragon Balls to switch the universes' Earths. If Beerus won, he will give him the six Dragon Balls he collected but Beerus has to find the last one on his own. Vegeta and Goku join Beerus' team off the bat. They also select Piccolo, Good Buu, and Beerus wants the strongest fighter he's ever faced, who's not Whis. Vegeta suggests to have Gohan fight instead because he has the highest potential but Goku doesn't want him to because he's focused on studying. Vegeta and Goku go to Earth to get Bulma to invent a new Dragon Radar.
Bulma creates a new Dragon Radar but it doesn't work where they are, at the edge of the universe. Bulma gets in contact with her sister, Tights, to get Jaco to go to Earth. In 50 minutes, Jaco tells Bulma that he's busy but he'll take her to see Zuno to know where the center of the universe is to use the Dragon Radar. When Goku tells Vegeta that they both have feisty wives, he tells him that he doesn't mind because Saiyan women were strong-willed and pursued by Saiyan men, leading Piccolo to realize why Vegeta and Goku chose Bulma and Chi-chi as their wives. Before the Tournament of Destroyes, Vegeta and Goku train together in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for three days (three years in the room). The day of the tournament, Vegeta and Goku come out of the room and go to Capsule Corporation with beards and smell bad. They are told by Bulma to take a shower before entering the cube Whis brought to transport them to the Nameless Planet.
After bathing and shaving, Vegeta and Goku return to be taken to the tournament. Before they go to the event, they go to Beerus' world to pick up Beerus and their fifth fighter, Monaka. Vegeta wonders who the mysterious attendee is, so Whis goes on to say that he's the strongest fighter Beerus has ever fought, Monaka. Vegeta doesn't think that Monaka is anything special. Piccolo comments that they tend to underestimate other people. While traveling to the planet, they eat meat Chi-Chi has grilled, which Vegeta is pleased because he hasn't had a decent meal in three years. After two hours and forty-five minutes of traveling, they arrive on the Nameless Planet. Vegeta is prepared to take the exam to be able to compete, as he requested. As he is walking to the stage, Vegeta and Goku notice a warrior from Universe 6 that looks similar to Frieza. He is said to not be Frieza by Piccolo, saying his does not sense an evil aura around him, signaling he is good. The written exam is about to begin on the command of Vados.
As Vegeta is about to take his seat to take the exam, he catches eye of Cabba. He asks them if they're Saiyans and Vegeta is impressed he noticed and wonders if Saiyans are present on his team. Cabba reveals he's a Saiyan to Goku and Vegeta which surprises them. Vegeta comments on Cabba's attire an says that the attire he's wearing resembles the style the Saiyans wore before getting taken over by Frieza, which Cabba doesn't seem to know Frieza. Vegeta asks Cabba what planet the Saiyans are based on in their universe and Cabba responds saying Planet Sadala, the original planet of the Saiyans. Vegeta is shocked that the planet still exists in his universe. Cabba is curious if Planet Sadala exists in Universe 7 but Vegeta says that it has been destroyed because of an internal conflict between Saiyans and he further explains what happens after that. Goku then asks Cabba where his tail is to which Cabba says that they had tails long ago but don't now because they evolved. Vegeta wonders if they're still a warrior race and Cabba says they are but they do not steal planets.
After ten minutes Vegeta passes the exam, but however, they are short of one fighter because Majin Buu failed, he even spelled his name wrong. Vegeta is childishly blamed by Goku for losing a member of their team. Beerus chooses Monaka to be last and Vegeta is third after Goku became first and Piccolo is second. Vegeta watches the first match between Goku and Botamo. As he watches the match, Vegeta doesn't think Goku can win if he can't deal damage to Botamo. Piccolo thinks that Goku can only hurt Botamo if he goes all out but Vegeta doesn't think Goku should. Vegeta is curious of Goku's plan to beat Botamo and is shocked to see that Goku thought of pushing Botamo down and throwing him out the ring but he didn't think of that tactic.
Later in their match, Vegeta observes Goku's victory against Botamo and later his next match against Frost. Frost is no match for Goku but after he uses poison to knock him out Vegeta is extremely surprised. Vegeta is also doubtful as to how Goku could have been knocked out with a single blow. While Piccolo fights Frost, he suggests that Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon is ineffective as it requires a lot of ki and would need time. While watching the fight Jaco sits alongside Vegeta stating it's a better view, as he is also suspicious of Frost. In the manga, Piccolo does not use the Makankosappo and is easily knocked out of the ring. When it is figured out and pointed by Jaco that Frost cheated. After Champa raises his hand to destroy Frost due to his embarrassment, Vegeta intervenes stating that he wants to beat Frost himself. He then forces Piccolo to forfeit and Vegeta fights Frost in the next match. As the match begins, both fighters seem confident about their abilities. Frost threatens to kill Vegeta and says that since there are no restrictions in using his needle he will use it as well. As Frost charges towards Vegeta, he transforms into a Super Saiyan and immediately delivers a blow to Frost in the stomach and throwing him out of bounds.
After this, a new rule has been decided and it is that if one touches the barrier around the ring, it counts as a ring out. His next fight is with Magetta, as soon as he arrives Vegeta estimates him to be slow due to his size but as he starts to punch Vegeta, he realizes that he is both powerful and fast. Vegeta attempts to get rid of Magetta's head by kicking it repeatedly. Magetta's head soon pops out with smoke. Vegeta is surprised Magetta gains both speed and power each time he attacks. He then flies towards the barrier now established in the tournament as he is aware that Magetta cannot fly due to his large size. Despite his multiple blasts at Magetta, they are clashed with Magetta's Magama Spit. He then dodges the magma trying to understand his strategy before the room starts to get full of smog. Vegeta clears the smog by turning into a Super Saiyan but is exhausted due to the immense heat generated by Magetta. Magetta continues spitting lava again at Vegeta. He then lets out a hot water vapor attack which pushed Vegeta to almost fly out of the barrier.
While Vegeta prepares for a Galick Gun attack, Magetta raises the temperature which causes the whole arena to become extremely hot. Magetta easily blocks Vegeta's Galick Gun with his Lava Spit which becomes solidified. He spits another lava on Vegeta, and uses the lava to ambush Vegeta. He successfully hits Vegeta with a club created by the cooling the magma, making him fall out of the ring. However, Vegeta is lucky enough to land on one of the broken rocks from the stage platform. Magetta gets pushed back by Vegeta's ki after releasing it to break the barrier. Vegeta uses his Final Flash on Magetta, while Magetta prepares for another Lava Spit. However, the Final Flash easily overcomes Magetta's lava and pushes him to the edge of the arena platform. As a result of Vegeta's Final Flash, Magetta becomes dizzy and is left open to Vegeta's attack. Despite trying to block it, Vegeta shouts out an insult which makes Magetta lose his will to fight. Thus, Magetta falls out of bounds and Vegeta is declared the winner of the match.
The next match between Cabba and Vegeta begins. Vegeta notes that Cabba has his identical fighting stance. As the battle commences, both Vegeta and Cabba are very evenly matched. As both realize this, Vegeta tells Cabba to transform into a Super Saiyan. Cabba states that he cannot transform, and then asks Vegeta how to do this. Vegeta gets angry at this, wondering how Cabba could ask him that question, and then Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan. Vegeta then proceeds to pummel Cabba, taunting him on how disgraceful he is. Cabba, after being pummeled, says that he surrenders to Vegeta. Vegeta gets even angrier, saying to Cabba if he surrenders, he will kill him. Vegeta then says that he will destroy Sadala once the tournament is over. Cabba then fills with rage and becomes a Super Saiyan.
After Cabba uses his Continuous Energy Bullet, Vegeta tells him to not forget the feeling of anger. This confusion with Cabba causes him to lose his Super Saiyan state. Vegeta then explains how the Super Saiyan transformation is achieved through anger. Cabba then understands that he only provoked him to achieve the Super Saiyan state. Vegeta then barks at Cabba to transform again, to which he does. Vegeta turns into his most powerful form, Super Saiyan Blue, to Cabba's surprise. Vegeta then tells Cabba that he will become this powerful one day, and then knocks him out cold with a single punch to the stomach. Vegeta tells him to never forget this anger, as it is his fuel to his Super Saiyan power. The referee then declares Cabba knocked out, granting Vegeta three consecutive wins. Vegeta gets a bucket of water to wake Cabba up and splashes it on his face. Cabba bows his head toward Vegeta, which greatly upsets Vegeta, and he says that bowing to your enemy is the same as giving up, and then tells Cabba about Saiyan pride, and how it is the strength of the Saiyans. Vegeta then tells Cabba to surpass him in strength, but how Vegeta won't stop training though and for Cabba to train relentlessly. The last words of Cabba are how the Saiyan King of Universe 6 is a strong and prideful person similar to Vegeta. Vegeta replies that he hopes to meet him someday.
The next battle between Hit and Vegeta begins, with both fighters having a stern face. Throughout the fight Vegeta is unable to land a single attack on Hit and is completely dominated and effortlessly beaten. Next up is Goku vs Hit and Vegeta watches on from the side. Vegeta along with everyone else, including Beerus and Champa is stunned when Goku suddenly blocks Hit's attacks and begins to actually lands blows on him, much to Vegeta's annoyance. As the fight continues, Vegeta becomes enraged when Goku uses Kaio-Ken in his Super Saiyan Blue form, enraged at remembering he loss to Goku from Kaio-Ken and the realization that Goku always has been one step ahead of him. As Goku continued to power up to Kaio-Ken time ten Vegeta along with Piccolo were stunned at Goku's massively increased speed and power.
Vegeta is mostly silent for the duration of the battle between Hit and Goku. He is generally surprised when Goku gives up and lands out of the ring. When the Zeno arrives, Vegeta wonders who he is, but shortly afterward, is very shocked when Beerus reveals that Zeno rules over the 12 universes, making him very surprised. He then goes onto the arena to where the Omni-King is present. After Zeno leaves, Cabba then refers to Vegeta as his mentor, and then asks Vegeta if he wants to go to his home planet. Vegeta then responds in an annoyed tone not to call him mentor, yet Cabba still calls him mentor, making Vegeta still a bit annoyed but he just ignores it. Afterwards, Vegeta and the others witness Beerus and Whis summons Super Shenron and make a wish on the Super Dragon Balls.
After the Tournament of Destroyers in Age 779, Vegeta attends Bulma's party at Capsule Corporation in west city. When Bulma realizes Monaka is really weak and criticizes Beerus for it, Vegeta sides with Beerus and tells her that the reason why he did it was to inspire Vegeta and Goku to train harder, even though for the most part Vegeta didn't really care about Monaka. While Goku fought with Monaka (Beerus wearing a Monaka costume), Vegeta and Piccolo interfered in their match upon Beerus tail popping out the back of the costume. Piccolo blocks Goku's sight with his cloak while Vegeta assist Beerus in rearranging his costume. Piccolo seeing Beerus and Vegeta struggle with the outfit, Piccolo attacks Goku with his Namekian ability to stretch and restrains Goku, claiming "Monaka" appears to have the ability to control people. Vegeta quitly calls Piccolo a terrible actor and then swallows his pride and claims Monaka has taken control of his body as well and begins to charge Goku while Piccolo is restraining him. Beerus, having rearranged his costume, throws Vegeta into Piccolo knocking them both into the ground and re-enters the fight, but the fight is stopped by Whis.
When Goten and Trunks were trapped in Monaka's delivery truck and Monaka went to Planet Potaufeu to deliver an item, Bulma finds out via her surveillance camera footage, and tells Jaco to go to Potaufeu to retrieve the boys. Vegeta says it wouldn't have happened if she hadn't ordered the supplies from Monaka and Bulma angrily accuses him of blaming her, a fearful Vegeta takes back his words. She then orders Vegeta to accompany Jaco, although Vegeta was irritated but went anyway. After arriving, Vegeta gets there just in time to intercept an attack aimed at Trunks. Wanting to hear the story from Trunks later, Vegeta engages the Commeson copies of Gryll and his henchmen, easily defeating them.
Vegeta then confronts Copy-Gryll, but a piece of Commeson sneaks up on him from behind, and absorbs him. Vegeta's power is completely drained, and an exact copy of him, Duplicate Vegeta, is created. Irritated, Vegeta attempts to fire a Galick Gun, but nothing happens, as his power has been drained. He is then surprised to see Duplicate Vegeta fire a Galick Gun of his own. As Duplicate Vegeta hesitates to attack Trunks, Vegeta notices this. The group then retreats, with Goten carrying Monaka, Trunks carrying Vegeta and Potage, and Jaco retreating on his own. At a safe spot, Potage explains to the group the true nature of Commeson, along with its side effects to the victims. Vegeta, being a victim, is suspected to die in 3 to 5 minutes, as his body is supposed to disappear, and the only way to reverse this is to defeat Duplicate Vegeta.
Later, Gotenks engages in battle with Duplicate Vegeta, who is unable to deal any damage to him. As Vegeta's time is running out, his body becomes transparent. Before Duplicate Vegeta can finish off Goten and Trunks, Goku appears, confused about the whole situation, and believed Duplicate Vegeta to be the real Vegeta. Vegeta tells him that he does not need to know the details, and tells Goku to defeat him in 3 minutes, but smirks and wonders if he can. When Duplicate Gryll tries to forcefully control Duplicate Vegeta, Vegeta is irritated, and then feels proud when Duplicate Vegeta overcame the control and defeated Duplicate Gryll. When the fighting begins, Vegeta simply watches, with anger rising with each attack, at first saying how Goku was landing such weak blows against Duplicate Vegeta, yet as the battle commences, Vegeta still becomes frustrated with the battle, looking in anger at the fight even when Goku is winning.
After Goku and Duplicate Vegeta transform into Super Saiyan Blue, Jaco notes that Vegeta looks even more transparent then before. Potage then tells him to chew on the key to sealing Commeson (which is a pacifier), saying it might give him a little more time before he disappears, and Vegeta gladly takes it, thanking Potage as well, and as he puts the key in his mouth, both Goten and Trunks are relatively shocked, with Goku looking at Vegeta in confusion as well. As the fight commences, Vegeta and the others head towards another area since the fighting has gotten too dangerous. Trunks asks if there is any other way to save Vegeta, then Potage recalls that if the core of Commeson is destroyed, then all of the copies become much weaker. Trunks and the others then go to find the core of the Superhuman Water, while Vegeta continues to watch the fight against Duplicate Vegeta and Vegeta, with Monaka there as well since he has fainted.
When Trunks and the others return to Vegeta, Trunks is relieved that Vegeta is still with them, saying there is still time. When Goku and Duplicate Vegeta are powering up, Vegeta notes that they are trying to end the battle with a decisive blow. While Vegeta and the others watch the impact from that skirmish, Commeson appears behind them, and sets Trunks as his target, as Trunks looks behind in horror, and Vegeta turns around to protect Trunks, yet lets the key fall out of his mouth, and his body shows to further disappear, as he attempts to grab onto Trunks, and fails to grab onto him, with Trunks looking in complete horror as Vegeta is almost about to disappear. Vegeta then attempts to protect Trunks, and Trunks yells for his father, waking Monaka up, causing him to fall back in dizziness, stepping on the crystal in the process. Goku then notices Commeson and the others, and realizes Vegeta is about to disappear, then in a rush, Goku prepares a God Kamehameha against Copy-Vegeta, obliterating him and ending him once and for all.
After Potage seals the weakened Commeson back into his container and thanks Monaka, Trunks, and Goten for all of their help, Goku is impressed that Monaka defeated the superhuman water, yet also says that if he had a little more time he could have defeated Duplicate Vegeta at full power, to which Vegeta immediately objects, but Goku changes the subject and asks Vegeta why he was chewing on a pacifier as an adult. Vegeta doesn't understand where Goku is coming from, and is completely mortified when Videl shows Pan sucking on a pacifier and saying how babies suck on pacifiers. Vegeta and Goku are then standing near the ledge, with Vegeta still melodramatically whining about having unwittingly humiliated himself. Goku asks if he knew, and Vegeta told him that he obviously didn't know, and he would have preferred death than unintentional humiliation. Goku objects to Vegeta preferring death, stating that they'd never be able to settle their score. Amused, Vegeta brags he'll win, and Goku muses that he won't lose, all the while watching the sunset.
Future Trunks and Universal Survival Saga
After the defeat of Copy Vegeta in Age 779, Vegeta is discussing the ramen he ate with Goku, Beerus and Whis on Beerus' planet. Whis receives a distress call from Bulma on Earth, who shows Goku and Vegeta a severely injured and unconscious Future Trunks, having barely escaped his alternate timeline with his life. The four teleport to Earth, and Vegeta tells Goku to teleport to Korin Tower to get some Senzu Beans. When he returns, Bulma feeds Future Trunks a Senzu Bean, and he wakes up. Hearing Goku's voice and seeing him, Future Trunks angrily attacks him, surprising everyone. Bulma then slapped Future Trunks and then came to his senses and sees Bulma and Vegeta. When Trunks got his sword, Vegeta says he doesn't need it but Trunks states that it makes him feels better. After Future Trunks tells them about Goku Black and how he escaped to the present timeline, Vegeta berates Trunks, as a proud Saiyan, turning his back on Black and running away to the past. He is then interrupted by Bulma saying there was a message in the notebook she found in the time machine.
Goku and Vegeta decide to go to the future and help Future Trunks defeat Goku Black. Krillin and Piccolo soon arrive. A thunderstorm soon appears, a portal opens and Black arrives which surprises Future Trunks, then Goku and Vegeta meet Black. Future Trunks becomes enraged and tried to fight him but Vegeta stops him. Vegeta, Future Trunks, Piccolo, and Krillin soon watch the fight between Goku and Black with Future Trunks wondering why Goku doesn't go all out. Vegeta then tells him Goku has a bad habit of not going at full power during the start of the fight. Soon, the Time Ring starts to pull Black back into the portal he came in but not before destroying the time machine and is then sent back to the future. Future Trunks then groans over the destruction of the time machine with Vegeta telling him to not give up hope then Bulma comes back with a capsule opening it revealing the Time machine Cell came in from the future hoping that it will work. To prepare for their battle with Black, Vegeta began training in the gravity chamber while Bulma attempted to repair the time machine. An angry Vegeta swore vengeance against Black for the murder of Future Bulma and the endless torment Future Trunks suffered at Goku Black's hands.
After Goku's return from Universe 10, Vegeta tells Future Trunks he is going to train him. As Future Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan 2, he requests Vegeta not to hold back and transform into a Super Saiyan 3 like Goku, but Vegeta laughs and transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue, which shocks Future Trunks. Vegeta then says that if Future Trunks can land a single blow on him, he will win. Future Trunks transforms into his Super Saiyan Third Grade form, and Vegeta is visibly disappointed and angry that Future Trunks still relies on such a "primitive" transformation and prepares to attack. Vegeta is surprised to realize that Future Trunks only assumed the form to catch Vegeta off guard, powering down from the form right when Vegeta attacks him. Vegeta slams Future Trunks on the ground, giving him a 3/10 for that strategy. As Vegeta beats down Future Trunks, he notices Future Trunks smirking, and angrily exclaims he will not allow Future Trunks to lose to anyone just because he and Goku are there. Future Trunks then lands a blow on Vegeta, proclaiming he wins and he will not only surpass Black but him as well. As Vegeta scoffs and leaves, Future Trunks bows and thanks him.
With the Time Machine fixed Goku, Future Trunks and Vegeta go to the Future. When they arrive Vegeta and Goku are shocked about all the wreckage and Future Trunks discovers Future Mai's hat. Vegeta follows Future Trunks and Goku is shot at by the resistance who think Goku is Black. After the misidentification is resolved, Vegeta meets Future Mai and other survivors of the conflict. Vegeta is successful in securing the right to fight Black first and begins battling him when he appears before the group, Vegeta powers straight up to Super Saiyan Blue and is congratulated by Black on reaching the level of gods. Vegeta launces a assault to no avail with Black calling the Saiyan prince only a warm up. Goku Black then transforms into a Super Saiyan Rosé and suddenly catches Vegeta off guard with his aura blade and stabs Vegeta clean through the right side of his chest, mortally wounding him.
Vegeta is unconscious throughout the entire fight between Goku, Future Trunks, Black and Future Zamasu, only waking up to witness Future Zamasu's appearance and waking up once again to save Goku and Future Trunks from being killed by the two evil entity's combined attack, falling unconscious once again. He is saved by Future Mai after Earth's Resistance distracts Black and Future Zamasu, and while still knocked out, is sent back to the past alongside the two other Saiyans. While Goku accompanies Beerus and Whis to Universe 10, Vegeta stays at Capsule Corp, arduously training in the Gravity Chamber.
The three Saiyans later return to the alternate timeline, this time with Bulma accompanying them. They engage in another fight with Goku Black and Future Zamasu, with Goku Black explaining the truth behind his identity: being Zamasu from another timeline who has switched bodies with Goku and killed him. With the Saiyans defeated once again, Future Trunks grows angry with the duo's words and he transforms into a new form, now able to fight both of them by himself as Vegeta, Goku and Bulma return to the past to figure out a plan. When Goku takes the idea from Piccolo to use the Evil Containment Wave, Vegeta decides to enter the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for a fourth time to train for half a day (roughly six months) as the Time Machine re-charges.
Vegeta, Goku and Bulma return to the alternate timeline using the time machine and they realize that Future Trunks' ki is fading away, before being immediately confronted by Future Zamasu and Goku Black. As they prepare to fight, they are interrupted by the arrival of Gowasu and Shin, who traveled to the future via a Time Ring. Goku and Vegeta shield Gowasu and Shin from being killed by the corrupt pair, and both pairs start fighting, and Vegeta succeeds in pushing Goku Black and landing several blows on him thanks to his increased strength. While Goku Black is being beaten down, Vegeta tells him that he will not lose to a fake who stole Goku's body, in which he has developed from many fierce battles and that only he has the right to use it. Vegeta continues powering up as he faces off against Black. He lands many hits on Black, but Black warns Vegeta that he is just an "appetizer", and follows through with a punch that the Saiyan swiftly dodges. Vegeta, once again, gets the upper-hand in the fight and fires off a huge blast at Black, mocking him and telling him to come out of hiding. Black realizes that rage is what made Vegeta so strong, and the Saiyan watches as Black summons a scythe and creates a dark rift in the universe. The fight continues, and when Goku Black clones himself, Vegeta powers up alongside Goku and the two fire off Ki Blasts at the clones. This only causes more clones to appear. Goku Black explains how Zamasu will be going to kill the others which causes Vegeta to yell at Goku to use Instant Transmission.
Trunks later uses the Evil Containment Wave on Zamasu which makes Goku Black wonder what is going on. Goku Black uses the Instant Transmission technique to teleport to Zamasu which causes the rift to close and allows Goku to use the technique. Vegeta checks up on the others and then explains that Goku and himself will finish off Goku Black and Zamasu. Vegeta watches as Goku Black and Zamasu fuse. Vegeta wonders what Fused Zamasu plans on doing while the fusion felt his new power. After Fused Zamasu forms his Ring of Light, Vegeta orders Future Trunks to protect Bulma and Mai, and then holds off one of the fusion's attacks with Goku to ensure that they make it to safety. Vegeta and Goku hold off against Fused Zamasu's Blades of Judgement which shakes the Earth. Vegeta remarks that it's possible to win because he never felt such a power before, and states that he will never forgive Zamasu. Vegeta, after listening to Fused Zamasu's speech, warns the fusion not to get too cocky, and charges at him, dodging all of his attacks, and then fires an energy blast at the fusion. Unharmed, Fused Zamasu creates a Wall of Light and fires his Lightning of Absolution at Vegeta, launching the Saiyan towards the ground. Vegeta gets up and tells Fused Zamasu to stop talking as he powers up, explaining that Saiyans have no limits. Vegeta and Goku, at full power, charge Fused Zamasu, dodging the Lightning of Absolution. They enter the Wall of Light itself and after flying through it, the wall is destroyed.
Vegeta and Goku then fly towards the fusion once again, but their attacks are blocked by his hands. Fused Zamasu explains that trying to touch a God is Vegeta and Goku's sins, and then releases dark energy down the Saiyans' arms which hurts them. The fusion throws them to the ground and casts his Blades of Judgement towards them. Future Trunks arrives at the scene and powers up after seeing Vegeta and Goku lying on the ground. After a fight, Future Trunks finds himself firing a Galick Gun at Fused Zamasu's energy blast. Vegeta joins his son, creating the Father-Son Galick Gun. The two push back Zamasu's attack, but the fusion remains unharmed, and fires his Absolute Lightning at Future Trunks. Vegeta steps in front and takes the hit for his son, knocking off a piece of his battle armor in the process and injuring him.
Vegeta remains under Future Trunks' care while Goku temporarily ends Fused Zamasu's attacks. In both manga and anime Goku proposes the idea of using the Potara to fuse with Vegeta. Vegeta is surprised by this proposal and yells at Goku that he would never fuse with him again. After being persuaded by Goku and eating a Senzu Bean, Vegeta complies and puts a Potara on his ear, fusing into Vegito. After or just before Vegito uses his Final Kamehameha depending on the media, the fusion wears off early due and they are beaten down by Fused Zamasu.
Goku and Vegeta watch as Future Trunks engages in battle with Zamasu, and witness Trunks finish Zamasu off with his Sword of Hope after gathering everyone's energy and slicing Zamasu in half. As they celebrate, they quickly find out that Zamasu's will remained intact and he became a reality encompassing entity and began taking over the multiverse. Goku then calls Future Zeno and has him erase Fused Zamasu, and accidentally the entire multiverse of Trunks' timeline, from existence and they retreat back to the present timeline before he does so. Later, when Future Trunks and Future Mai are ready to travel to another timeline to live with their other counterparts, Vegeta attacks Future Trunks to test his power, and smiles after seeing Trunks easily block his attack and the two bid farewell.
Later after the defeat of Zamasu, Vegeta join Team Universe 6 as they compete against Team Universe 7 in a baseball game on Earth. Vegeta later fights against Arale and is defeated. Vegeta vows to never appear in a gag episode ever again.
Shortly after Zamasu has fallen Vegeta is seen training alone on Beerus' planet with Whis, still unable to touch him. Beerus interrupts the training and shocked Goku isn't present and is concerned about Goku not training for Zeno's tournament. Whis tells him Goku didn't want to come and Beerus orders Whis to make Goku train as Beerus says that Goku is Universe 7's strongest fighter and their chosen champion for the tournament, also fearing Zeno's reactions if Goku isn't at his finest. Vegeta, annoyed at not even have been considered the best and once again chosen under Goku, demands to do Goku's workouts so that he can prove that he is better than Goku once and for all. Whis refuses saying Vegeta can't handle Goku's warm up even but may allow him to do some if he can finish his work out early. Annoyed, Vegeta powered up to Super Saiyan Blue and charged Whis attempting to prove him wrong.
After some more time passing Vegeta still hasn't gotten through his work out reps yet and Vegeta attempts to lie and say yes but Whis caught him and says he has 13 left. Knowing Goku is up to something and desperate to know what Goku is actually up to as he knows Goku wouldn't stop training for nothing Vegeta tricks Beerus and Whis to go to Earth where they see Goku and Hit fighting and witness the end of the fight where Goku ends the battle in a draw with Hit. Vegeta confronts Goku instantly jealously telling Goku he seems to enjoy fighting Hit more than himself. Goku says no and that Hit was here to kill him. After learning someone put a hit out on Goku's life Vegeta demands to know who, with Beerus initially believing it to be Vegeta but Vegeta quickly figures out Goku put a hit on himself so he could fight Hit again.
One year later in Age 780, Vegeta nervously awaits the imminent birth of his second child. Goku arrives to invite him to Zeno's tournament but Vegeta declines because he wants to stay with Bulma until she gives birth, much to the bewilderment of Goku and later Whis. After Goku returns from training with Whis and talking with Zeno and getting the tournament set up Goku asks Vegeta to partake in the exhibition matches Future Zeno wanted to see. Vegeta once again says no but tells Goku to go and ask his son, Gohan instead. Vegeta thinks of a proper Saiyan royal name. Goku and Gohan returns and informs him of the events from the Zeno Expo and of the battle royal in two days. Vegeta is interested but has a revelation and asks why is Goku and now Gohan so intent on him entering and goes on to say that normally the chance to fight 70 other people Goku wouldn't hesitate to fight them on his own and wonders what is different this time.
Vegeta still refuses to enter unless they convince Bulma to allow him. Whis now annoyed proceeds to use his staff power to bring the baby out from inside Bulma and, with the baby now born, tells Vegeta he can enter the tournament. Seeing Bulma with their newborn daughter, Vegeta quickly comes to love the baby. Vegeta stays afar as everyone bonds with the baby girl and reacts with anger and turns Super Saiyan Blue when Hercule and Yamcha make her cry. Trunks asks Vegeta to hold the baby, and Vegeta instantly agrees because he says Trunks is not holding her properly and takes Bulla from him. Vegeta tries to act indifferent but he obviously is smitten with the baby as he holds her. He is about to announce a name for her when Bulma says she has decided on Bulla, much to Vegeta's outrage because he wants his daughter to have a strong Saiyan name but he relents a few moments later saying it's not a bad name either in a happy tone.
He later gets irritated at Beerus and Whis for lounging at Capsule Corporation, saying it is not a cheap hotel for them to nap at. The next day, Trunks calls out to Vegeta as he tries to change Bulla's diaper, and Vegeta effortlessly changes her diaper, stopping her crying and Vegeta smiles at his daughter. Vegeta goes to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for last minute training, and is warned by Mr. Popo to not blow it up again or he will be banned. Vegeta blows it up anyway and returns to Capsule Corp., where Gohan tells everyone the truth about the universe being erased if Universe 7 loses. Goku offers to pay everyone money for participating but Vegeta retorts Chichi has control of the couple's money. When Goku suggests they recruit Frieza, Vegeta adamantly refuses this and tells Goku to not use the Dragon Balls to resurrect Frieza.
Nevertheless, Goku goes to Hell to recruit Frieza. Vegeta is still uneasy with this but Whis points out that Frieza's resurrection compared to the current dilemma is small. When Trunks questions why Frieza's picture is on the team member board, Vegeta lies that Frieza is redeemed to confirm Bulma's lie about everyone being guests for the celebration of Bulla's birth, although he is disgusted with himself for defending Frieza. Vegeta and Bulma then get irritated at Goku for using Trunks as a bargain to convince 17 to enter in the tournament. When Goku returns to Capsule Corp. with Frieza, Vegeta stands in front of Bulma and mocks how the angel's halo suits Frieza, who retorts he will give Vegeta one. Beerus and Goku tell the two to stop provoking each other. Vegeta refuses to agree to the plan of teamwork because they should take out the opponents who appear strong and Frieza mocks him. Vegeta is ready to retaliate until Piccolo reminds him that his children will be erased if Universe 7 loses. Shin explains the plan to attack their opponents as a group but Vegeta says Saiyans don't rely on numbers to fight. After arriving at the World of Void, Vegeta is greeted by Cabba and is introduced to Caulifla and Kale. Caulifla insults the Saiyans by calling them wimps for acting scared of Jiren, making Vegeta offended.
Later, the Great Priest emerged from the center of the arena and explained the rules for the tournament once again. Gohan then goes over the plan with the team with Vegeta pointing out that it's boring in his opinion. Soon afterwards, both Zenos expressed the desire to start the tournament and with the fighters prepared, with Great Priest's word, the Tournament of Power finally began. Vegeta spent the beginning of his time in the tournament sticking together with his team despite of his opinion of the plan, but as Goku went off to fight Toppo, eventually Vegeta went on his own as well as the Androids and Freiza. Vegeta was then seen twice repeatedly punching Hyssop who was at the time crossing his arms for defense.
Vegeta then turned his attention towards other fighters, such as Nigrissi and Obni, and then noticed that the Trio of Danger were overpowering Goku and then appeared by his side to help him as he ki barrier went away after he blocked and counterattacked the Dangers' Triangle. After escaping the Dangers' Triangle due to Goku's interference, Vegeta formed a ki barrier around his body to dodged and avoid Lavender and his poison before knocking him away. He then found himself fighting Hop and Lavender alogn with Hyssop from Universe 9. Afetr defeating Hop, Vegeta was then attacked by Oregano who used his threats to attack him, but then Vegeta went Super Saiyan and freed himself from the thread and frozen arm. Vegeta then proceeded to overpower Hyssop and blasted both him and Oregano with a strong enough ki blast. Vegeta then focused on fighting Lavender and Basil as the Trio and the Trio De Dangers were the last Universe 9 members left and after Vegeta overpowered Lavender when he tried to poison him again. When the trio tried to finish off the Saiyans with their Triangle Danger Beam, he combined his Final Flash with Goku's Kamehameha as they went Super Saiyan Blue and knocked them off the stage, which resulted in Universe 9 getting erased by the two Zenos.
Afterwards, the fighting resumed and Vegeta went after Hit in Super Saiyan form to pay him back for the previous tournament they were in, but his punch was blocked by Botamo. After punching him repeatedly to no avail, Vegeta initially planned to throw Botamo, but after the latter prevented it from happening, the Saiyan figured it out, tied his arms in a knot, and would have thrown him off the arena if Auta Magetta hadn't interfered. He then tried to defeat the metal man with insults, but the latter overcame his mental weakness and teamed up with Botamo to form a seemingly unstoppable duo, Bota Magetta, which gave Vegeta a hard time in a fight. He continued to fight the two as he kept up on the agility and dodged their attacks until he managed to lose them. Afterwards, Cabba approached him and decided to fight Vegeta after he effortlessly defeated Nigrissi and Murisam at the same time. The two of them then noticed Kale's Legendary Super Saiyan transformation prior to the start of there battle. Uncharacteristically, Vegeta actually shows concern for Goku and tells him to be careful and watch out. While not knowing what the form is Vegeta believes it may be a Saiyan's True Form. As Kale begins to devastate the arena Vegeta, along with majority of the other competitors avoid the barrage of ki blasts.
After the dust settles and Kale begins to look for Goku, Vegeta is shown on a newly formed perch of rubble high in the air calling her a monster. Later on, Vegeta went up against the Kamikaze Fireballs from Universe 2 alongside Goku and Android 17. He then fired a blast that blows away the pink-colored gas shading the entire tournament ring, disappointed in Universe 2's minuscule increase in power. Brianne de Chateau calls Vegeta impatient, saying that the attack was just a greeting and the real fight starts now. Brianne and Vegeta fight an equal battle, and Vegeta is impressed that their transformation isn't just for show. Brianne does an attack where she turns into a ball and launches herself at Vegeta, and Vegeta prepares to punch her, but instinctively dodges the attack due to her gross face.
Vegeta and Goku approach Tien while he is investigating Dr. Rota' unconscious body. Vegeta and Goku are attacked by the sniper and they duck. Vegeta calls the sniper a coward and an annoying enemy. After Hermila is eliminated, Vegeta and Goku corner Prum, who runs away but is tackled by Dr. Rota. Vegeta then takes out both with another Galick Gun, out of annoyance. Goku tells Vegeta that they lost 2 members, however Vegeta tells him it doesn't matter as long as they take out the rest. While fighting Roshi, Frost notices Vegeta observing the fight and shoots a Chaos Beam at him, only for Vegeta to deflect it. Vegeta then saves Roshi from being eliminated, however he only saved him because Frost angers him. Frost then buys time for Auta Magetta to get there by telling lies to Vegeta, who does not believe them. Vegeta then engages both Frost and Magetta in combat. While Master Roshi tries to fire an Evil Containment Wave on Magetta, Frost reflects it and throws it at Vegeta, who is then sealed inside a jar.
However, Master Roshi manages to save Vegeta, who turnes Super Saiyan Blue. Vegeta destroys one of Magetta's ear covers and insults him, and the Metalman loses all his will to fight. While Vegeta prepares to attack Frost, Frost uses a Ki Smoke Bomb and retreats. Vegeta then kicks Magetta off the stage. Vegeta tells Roshi that it is time he gives up. Vegeta tells him to eat a Senzu Bean before he dies and to leave the rest to him. Vegeta then departs without another word. Vegeta observes the fight between Goku and Jiren, and like the other fighters, is in utter shock of the magnitude of power Jiren possesses.
When Goku is collecting the energy from his team for Universe 7's Spirit Bomb, Vegeta is the only one who does not give him energy. Vegeta notices Brianne attempting to fire a pretty cannon at Goku while he is distracted, and blasts her away with a ki blast. Later, after Goku emerges with a new form and begins to fight on par with Jiren, Vegeta doesn't comprehend how Goku was able to increase his power and hone his movements so accurately. When Goku is finally defeated by Jiren, Vegeta goes next to Goku, asking him how Goku managed to attain such power, but Goku has no answer for him. Vegeta then leaves his teammate on the ground defenseless, opting to return to the battleground.
When Cabba is being pushed around and beaten by Monna, just as he is about to fall out of the arena, Vegeta grabs his hand and saves him. Vegeta reminds Cabba of the promise he made about introducing Vegeta to the Universe 6 Saiyan King. Cabba replies by saying either one of their universes could get erased, but Vegeta reaffirms him by telling him he will use the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect them after the tournament. Vegeta tells him to fight with the pride of a Saiyan, then leaves him to fight Monna. Vegeta then sets his sights on Jiren, who is meditating, but before he can do so, Top appears in front of him. The Leader of the Pride Troopers tells Vegeta to fight him, but Vegeta states he has no interest in fighting Universe 11's second fiddle. For most of the time, they are able to fight evenly, but due to the battle between Caulifla & Kale vs Goku, Vegeta is distracted for a great period of the battle. Top notes this, and says to Vegeta if he is so interested in their battle, he could watch it on the sidelines, proceeding to trap Vegeta in a lock. Vegeta shouts with great pain, but after regaining his senses, Vegeta hardly elbows Top in the gut, releasing him from the lock and causing Top to lay on the ground while momentarily knocked out.
Vegeta spectates the battle between Ultra Instinct Goku and Super Saiyan 2 Kefla, and it is only then that he comes to the realization that Goku has attained Ultra Instinct. Vegeta then sets a new goal for himself, determined to master Ultra Instinct before Goku does. While he is roaming the battlefield, he is met by Catopesra, a policeman of Universe 3. Katopesla changes from his Speed Mode to his Battle Mode, which increases his attack's power 300 fold. Vegeta closes his eyes, emptying his mind in an attempt to attain Ultra Instinct against Katopesla. When Vegeta makes no moves, Katopesla goes on the offensive and hits Vegeta with a punch, which Vegeta does not anticipate. Katopesla continues his assault with no attempts of defense or dodging from Vegeta, who is unsuccessful in attaining Ultra Instinct. Having had enough, Vegeta catches Katopesla's right fist, counterattacking with a hard punch to his gut, then following up with a barrage of punches which Katopesla is utterly helpless against.
During this, Whis figures out what Vegeta was trying to do and says it will be very hard, if not impossible for Vegeta to attain Ultra Instinct due to that he always has to be thinking. Following this, he begins to fight Team Universe 3's remaining warriors. After Team Universe 3 creates Koichiarator, Vegeta initially lets Gohan do the fighting, but is forced to intervene. He then initially struggles against the giant Anilaza, but is eventually able to defeat it with the combined efforts of his teammates casuing Universe 3 to be erased by Zeno and Future Zeno. Vegeta and the remainder of Team Universe 7 fight Team Universe 11.
Vegeta interrupts Goku's fight with Jiren with the intent on defeating Jiren himself. Even after he caught on to Jiren's movements, he is overwhelmed and nearly thrown off the stage. Vegeta manages to survive, and responds to Jiren's comment on his arrogance by declaring that he cannot run from who he is and that instead of using Ultra Instinct, he'll find his own way to defeat Jiren. Following this, he dramatically increases his power before using a Final Flash. Despite the initial appearance of Vegeta's victory, Jiren is unharmed and severely injures Vegeta. However, Vegeta is eventually able to recover and achieve a new form of Super Saiyan. He joins Goku in attacking Jiren, and the awkward timing of the duo's attacks puts Jiren on the defensive.
He continues to fight Jiren; however, Jiren leaves Top, who has transformed into a God of Destruction, to fight him. Vegeta initially struggles against Toppo, and wonders if he is fighting the same warrior as before. Toppo manages to knock Vegeta back and declares that the Saiyan will never win while he carries "unnecessary" traits. This infuriates Vegeta, who proclaims that he never throws away anything. Vegeta raises his aura just in time to disspate Toppo's attack and begins attacking Toppo. Vegeta berates Toppo for being a "loser who can't protect even his own pride." Vegeta then uses Final Explosion, which breaks free from Toppo's Hakai and blasts him out of the now half-destroyed ring.
To his teammates' relief, Vegeta survives the attack, though he does not have a lot of energy left to fight. Vegeta, Goku, and Android 17 prepare to face Jiren. Despite the combined efforts of Goku and Vegeta's attacks, Jiren is unfazed and overwhelms them with his strength, even stating to Android 17 strength is absolute" during his face-off with 17. As the battle rages on, Goku and Vegeta's stamina is depleted and they collapse to the ground, where Jiren attempts to finish them off, but is stopped by Android 17's selfless sacrifice to protect Vegeta and Goku.
Fueled by 17's demise, Vegeta faces Jiren alone, despite the disadvantage he against Jiren. Throughout the fight, Jiren questions why Vegeta continues the fight despite being outmatched, to which Vegeta retorts that even if he told him, Jiren knows nothing about what it's like to fight to protect something, calling Jiren an "emotionless bastard" which incites Jiren. Vegeta presses the attack, but is easily overpowered. Jiren acknowledges Vegeta's great pride before finishing Vegeta off, with Vegeta apologizing to Bulma and Cabba, and gives the remainder of his energy to Goku in order for him to fight Jiren. Beerus, Whis, Gohan, and Roshi praise Vegeta's ability to hold out as long as he could. Following his defeat, which he surprisingly accepts calmly, Vegeta stuns everyone and opts to cheer on Goku, even going as far as to berate the other gods for even showing a ounce of doubt in Goku.
After Universe 7 emerges as victorious and erased universes are restored by Android 17 with the Super Dragon Balls, Vegeta and the team return to Capsule Corp, where Bulma tearfully embraces Vegeta while he holds Bulla. During the celebration party, Vegeta smiles proudly at his daughter but he gets angry when Pan hits him in the face while she flies and he decides to have a rematch with Goku. At the location where their first fight occurred, the two begin to quarrel; Goku admits he can no longer use Ultra Instinct and Vegeta declares he will achieve a power far greater. The two then proceed to have their rematch.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly (Movie)
After the Tournament of Power in Age 780, Vegeta is sparring with Goku near his wife's summer home, on an island far to the south of West City as his wife, Bulma, along with Bulla, watches them. Beerus is trying to take a nap and yells out to Goku and Vegeta to keep their sparring noise down. They later take a break from their sparring to join the others for food. Vegeta hears Whis asks why Goku is seeking greater strength. Goku explains to Whis that it's because he met incredible fighters from other universes in the Tournament of Power which motivated him to want to become a lot stronger than he is but Vegeta calls Goku a fool for trying to seek a challenge with other universes even when the tournament is over.
Whis poses the same question to Vegeta and Vegeta replies that he's trying to become stronger to fight Frieza and angrily yells and points at Goku for having Frieza revived. Goku tells Vegeta that if it wasn't for his help, they probably would've been erased along with the rest of the 7th universe. Vegeta says that Frieza only helped them to protect himself and may be a real threat in the future as he could get stronger and achieve a newer form reflecting on how much stronger he got when he came to Earth and there’s no doubt that Frieza will try to beat him and Goku again. Goku responds that he doesn’t think Frieza would do such a thing as they revived him. Vegeta is annoyed and yells at Goku for thinking such a thing. Vegeta then loudly calls Goku an idiot once more after Goku has asked why Vegeta has repeatedly called him an idiot. Later, Vegeta hears Trunks' call to Bulma through Bulma's wristwatch that the Dragon Balls have been stolen. Vegeta says to Bulma that he's told her so many times to keep the lab in a much better security. Trunks reveals that the burglars were wearing similar armor to what Vegeta was wearing back in the day and revealed the surveillance footage of the burglars stealing the Dragon Balls in the lab much to Bulma and Vegeta's shock.
Vegeta reveals that they are indeed Frieza's soldiers and Frieza specifically used those soldiers to sneak and steal the Dragon Balls due to their low power levels being undetectable. Goku wonders what Frieza would wish for and Vegeta thinks that Frieza would use the wish for immortality. Bulma reveals that there were only 6 Dragon Balls in her lab and they are probably looking for the 7th ball. Everyone agrees that Frieza must be stopped from collecting the 7th Dragon Ball and decides they should depart for the Ice Continent as that's where the last ball is at though Beerus stays behind and is forced to watch over Bulla. Afterward, Goku, Vegeta, Bulma and Whis depart for the Ice Continent in Bulma's airplane.
As they arrive on the Ice Continent, Bulma spots the burglars on the continent and they make a landing. Bulma, Vegeta and Goku come out in winter clothings but Whis doesn't need any winter clothing as it is colder for him out in the vacuums of space. The burglars realize that Goku and Vegeta are the Saiyans that Kikono warned them about and they use their scouters to detect their power levels. They realize they are no match and decide to hightail it out of the continent only for Vegeta to blast them down. Vegeta carries the ship while Goku jumps on top of the ship's glass, slapping it and telling them to give up the Dragon Balls but soon after, Goku senses something approaching and Vegeta and Goku both notice that it must be Frieza approaching but someone else with an enormous power level is also with him. Frieza arrives, along with the 2 Saiyans, Broly and Paragus, walking behind him. Vegeta instantly recognizes them as Saiyans and informs Goku about this. Paragus also sees Vegeta and recognizes him as Prince Vegeta, King Vegeta's son, based on his resemblance to his father.
Goku asks why Frieza is here and Frieza tells them that it should be obvious to them that he's trying to make a wish with the Dragon Balls. Frieza also introduces them to Broly and Paragus and Paragus comes out introducing himself. Frieza explains that they are Saiyans and the reason why he brought them here with him is that when Vegeta was a child, his father, King Vegeta, exiled Broly to an inhospitable planet until the Frieza Force found them, causing Paragus and Broly to be vengeful toward Vegeta because of his father's actions. Paragus yells at Vegeta that he has come to avenge the sins of his father against him but Vegeta doesn't care about that nor does he have anything to do with his father's actions while Broly's anger is noticeably bubbling out. Paragus and Frieza decide it's time to begin the fight and unleash Broly.
Paragus orders Broly to attack and Broly charges straight toward Vegeta who blocks his attack with a smile. They trade blows and punches as Vegeta is wearing his winter jacket for a few moments until he decides to rip his jacket off as the fighting progresses. Broly and Vegeta's battle continues until Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan. Broly is surprised about Vegeta's new form but continues to angrily attack Vegeta even at a major disadvantage in strength and speed. He's beaten down by Vegeta initially but he soon gains enough power to keep up with Super Saiyan Vegeta, which gives Vegeta trouble as he notices Broly, still in his base form, adapting to his power as they fight putting him on the defensive as Broly pushes him back through the ice mountain and proceeds to continuously punch Vegeta and violently grabs Vegeta by the throat, only for Vegeta to fire a blast and retreat.
Vegeta then flies upward and seeks the calm of divine ki, transforming into a Super Saiyan God. Vegeta is now in the advantage once again, and Broly is overwhelmed of Vegeta's newer transformation and level of power. Vegeta fires a few waves at Broly sending him back and Broly rushes toward Vegeta, trying repeatedly to land a punch on Vegeta only for Vegeta to effortlessly dodge them. Vegeta then catches one of Broly's punches with a fist and punches Broly straight in the face sending him crashing through a few mountains. At this point, Broly is no match and Paragus orders Broly to come back to the space ship while Broly is trying to contain his power much to Paragus' fear as he soon realizes he doesn't have the remote in his pouch to stop Broly from rampaging as it's missing. Vegeta intends to finish off Broly and aims a God Heat Flash at him. Goku tells him not to but Vegeta continues to proceed the attack and fires the energy blast which knocks Broly into a frozen lake.
In the depths of the ocean, Broly finally awakens his Wrath State, turning the ocean into a giant maelstrom and the force of his ki sending a gale outward, causing the nearby Goku and Vegeta to block instinctively. Both Goku and Vegeta express their surprise at this sudden and dramatic increase in Broly's power, and realize that the battle is going to be more challenging than they initially thought. Vegeta realizes that this fight could go long and asks Goku for any Senzu Beans but Goku didn't bring any. A Wrathful Broly then proceeds to fire a mouth blast at Goku which Goku barely dodges and the blast takes off on top of the mountain exploding in the sky while Vegeta seems to have dodge the blast as well. A curious Vegeta, gathers himself and attacks Broly with a punch. Broly takes the punch head on only for the punch not to effect him and Broly punching and sending Vegeta flying skyward crashing through several mountains as Vegeta is feeling pressured. Vegeta lands gracefully and Goku decides to fight as Broly is beginning to power up even more.
Vegeta is left watching the fight between Goku and Broly up until Broly finally reaches his Super Saiyan form for the first time, after he saw his father Paragus' lifeless body when Frieza informs him he was killed by a stray energy blast. Vegeta tells Goku to stop wasting time and decides to enter the fight again to help Goku as he recognizes Goku can't beat Broly alone. Goku accepts Vegeta's help and Vegeta then transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue as well. The 2 Saiyans then proceed to attack Broly and eventually fire an attack at Broly as a last resort to finish Broly off for good but the attack's power is not enough as Broly easily swats it away and pursues them forcing them to retreat. They immediately fly past Frieza and soon then, Broly forgets about Goku and Vegeta and starts attacking Frieza instead. Goku grabs Vegeta by the hand and uses his Instant Transmission to teleport them to Piccolo.
They immediately crash land and revert to their base forms with Goku still holding onto Vegeta for a few moments until Vegeta angrily pulls away and tells Goku to let go of him. Goku asks Piccolo if he has any Senzu Beans but Piccolo says no so Goku decides to ask Vegeta if he knows the Fusion Technique. At first, Vegeta is unaware of it as he only heard it from Trunks but then realizes it's the technique where two people merge by dancing like fools. Goku confirms this, and demonstrates the poses but Vegeta refuses to perform the dance as he doesn't want to merge with an idiot like Goku.
Goku tells Vegeta it's only for 30 minutes and they've fused before with the Potara Earrings and since they don't have any Potara Earrings, they have no choice but to perform Fusion. Vegeta funnily does a pose and says there has to be another way to beat Broly without doing these silly dance moves. Goku does a pose and tells Vegeta that it's the only way that they can beat Broly or else the Earth will be destroyed. Vegeta says the Earth might as well be destroyed for all he cares so Goku uses his trump card: would Vegeta really be okay with Bulma and Bulla dying? Vegeta tells Goku he shouldn't suck him into this, but nevertheless, he finally agrees to learn Fusion.
Later, Piccolo and Goku demonstrate the Fusion Technique to Vegeta and Goku tells Vegeta they should practice it together now but Vegeta says he would rather have Broly kill him instead. Vegeta and Goku practice with each other and a few failed fusions causes them to wait every 30 minutes to try again to perform a successful fusion with Piccolo telling them what they did wrong as they fail. Eventually, Goku and Vegeta perform the Fusion Dance for the very last time successfully and fuse into Gogeta. Gogeta then uses his Instant Transmission and proceeds to fight Broly while Broly is currently fighting Whis. Gogeta confronts Broly and their battle finally begins. Gogeta fights easily on par with Broly both at base and Super Saiyan until both decide to power up into their respective stronger Super Saiyan forms.
The fight continues up until Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta decides to finish off Legendary Super Saiyan Broly with a Full-Force Kamehameha that almost hits Broly only for him to be sent back to Vampa by Cheelai's wish to Shenron, leaving Gogeta's Kamehameha shooting off harmlessly into space and leaving Gogeta momentarily confused as to what just happened. Almost immediately thereafter, he confronts Frieza and prevents him from shooting down the small spacecraft that Cheelai and Lemo were using to escape Earth. Frieza then threatens that he will eventually return and conquer Earth, quickly departing and eliciting a small chuckle from Gogeta
Galactic Patrol Prisoner and Granolah the Survivor Saga
While Vegeta spars with Goku in the Gravity Room at Capsule Corporation, Bulma contacts them to say she has received an urgent call from Mr. Satan regarding a gang that showed up at his house and is now trying to kidnap Buu. Not wanting Goku's assistance, Vegeta flies over to Satan City in seconds where he is soon knocked out by Merus' Stun Gun. He awakens aboard the Galactic Patrol Headquarters where he is informed of a dangerous criminal named Moro who has escaped from the Galactic Prison and they require the Grand Supreme Kai who slumbers inside of Buu in order to stop him. Talking with Merus and Jaco prior to joining the Galactic Patrol, Goku and Vegeta reveal how not long before the Moro situation, they had encountered a Saiyan named Broly and had been forced to fuse into Gogeta to defeat him.
Goku offers to help catch the criminal and along with Vegeta the two are inducted into the Galactic Patrol as temporary special members. They join Merus on their venture to the Planet Jung in order to capture the Macareni gang who are attempting to steal some Blue Aurum. While there, Vegeta takes notice of Merus' abilities and after the Macareni gang are captured, Vegeta asks Merus if he was holding back his power and if he is capable of catching Moro by himself but is told that he can not. In the pursuit of Moro still, Vegeta and the others soon come to the conclusion that he is heading to New Namek in order to gather the Dragon Balls.
After sensing Moro heading in their direction, Goku and Vegeta head out to confront him once again but Merus arrives first on top of a Galactic Patrol spaceship and takes him on instead, capturing him with a device. When Buu is kicked off the ship and spots Moro he becomes enrages and Vegeta watches as he overwhelms Moro in battle, noticing that Buu's strength isn't decreasing as theirs did and that Moro's energy absorption does not appear to work on him. Unfortunately Moro's magic is returned to him thanks to Cranberry using Porunga and Moro flee's the area. Buu restores Goku and Vegeta's energy and when they turn around, see that the Grand Supreme Kai has manifested his way through Buu.
Goku teleports himself, Vegeta and Grand Supreme Kai to Moro's location on the verge of New Namek's atmosphere but is unable to continue the fight when Moro heads out further into space. After Merus assists Grand Supreme Kai and gives him the opportunity to grab hold of him, Moro is teleported back to New Namek where Goku and Vegeta await him. Moro informs the two of his third wish, to have all the prisoners from the Galactic Prison go free and they soon appear by his side having used a spaceship to get there. Moro shares his power with the prisoners, putting them into an empowered state before they gang up on Goku, Vegeta and Grand Supreme Kai but they get overpowered. However when Moro begins to absorb up their energy once again, the Saiyans and Kai begin to struggle. With the planet on the verge of destruction, Goku uses his Instant Transmission to teleport all of his allies but Vegeta, who chooses to go his separate way, back to Galactic Patrol Headquarters.
Three days later on Namek, Moori watches over Goku and Vegeta, who have slightly recovered due to Esca using his healing powers on them. They are informed that while asleep, Moro had attacked three villages and obtained their Dragon Balls. Just then they feel the impact of Moro's power as he begins to attacks Tsuburi's village. As Goku laments his inability to help, Moori tells him that they have assimilation as a last resort. Several dozen of the strongest Namekian warriors from each village combined together to form a mighty warrior who heads to the village to confront Moro however he is immediately killed in a single strike before he is unable to do anything. Moro, now having six of the Dragon Balls in his possession heads to the location of the final ball. Goku and Vegeta sense Moro heading for their location and they both head out to confront him. Moro arrives only to be surprised to see the two Saiyans still alive but vows to make sure that they will die this time. Goku and Vegeta charge towards Moro, still injured, only to be intercepted by a Galactic Patrol Spaceship. Merus riding on top, shoots down the ship carrying Moro. Moro flies out through the roof only to be pursued by Irico piloting the ship. Merus closes in on Moro and using one of his weapons fires a substance that covers Moro's body and entraps him from within.
With Goku and Vegeta still unable to defeat Moro, thet later witness Buu fighting against him. As Vegeta watches on, he notes that Buu appears to be stronger than before. Merus wonders if it has something to do with his potential being unleashed after his memories were recently unlocked. Merus wonders if it has something to do with his potential being unleashed after his memories were recently unlocked. with two wishes granted by Moro, Goku and Vegeta arrive at the location alogn with the Galactic Patrol and Buu before his disappearance. Just then the planet begins to shake as Moro has begun to suck all the energy out from the planet. Buu restores Goku and Vegeta to their full strength but when Goku turns to thank him he see's the Grand Supreme Kai standing there instead. He explains that until Moro is defeated he will be swapping places with Buu and that they can still save New Namek if they confront Moro together. Goku prepares his Instant Transmission as he, Vegeta and the Grand Supreme Kai teleport to Moro.
Goku teleports himself, Vegeta and Grand Supreme Kai to Moro's location on the verge of New Namek's atmosphere but is unable to continue the fight when Moro heads out further into space. After Merus assists Grand Supreme Kai and gives him the opportunity to grab hold of him, Moro is teleported back to New Namek where Goku and Vegeta await him. Moro informs the two of his third wish, to have all the prisoners from the Galactic Prison go free and they soon appear by his side having used a spaceship to get there. Moro shares his power with the prisoners, putting them into an empowered state before they gang up on Goku, Vegeta and Grand Supreme Kai but they get overpowered. However when Moro begins to absorb up their energy once again, the Saiyans and Kai begin to struggle. With the planet on the verge of destruction, Goku uses his Instant Transmission to teleport all of his allies but Vegeta, who chooses to go his separate way, back to Galactic Patrol Headquarters.
Vegeta heads aboard a Galactic Patrol spaceship piloted by member Irico and demands that he take him to the planet Planet Yardrat. He senses that Moro is heading off in the opposite direction and Irico tells him that it is Saganbo's ship and the fastest ship he has ever known. When Vegeta asks who Saganbo is, Irico reminds him of the one who stood at the side of Moro and how strong he is though Vegeta dismisses him, saying that without Moro's aid, he wouldn't even be able to defeat his son Trunks. Irico informs Vegeta that it will take one week before they reach Planet Yardrat and also asks him what purpose he has for going there. Vegeta tells Irico that while not physically strong, they employ strange techniques like the Instant Transmission taught to Goku and hopes that he can be taught something that may help him against Moro though he is reluctant in this strategy. Vegeta heads into his room where he vows that the next time he and Moro meet, he will defeat him and surpass Goku as well.
One week later, Vegeta finally reaches Yardrat. There, he and Irico are greeted by a group of Yardrats who give their gratitude toward Vegeta for defeating the Ginyu Force alongside Goku since the Ginyu Force was responsible for causing a stir on their planet though the Yardrats mistake Irico for Vegeta. Vegeta then asks one of the Yardrats who taught Goku Instant Transmission and in response a Yardrat makes the rest of the group of Yardrats disappear, revealing that he was alone the entire time and was using his cloning technique incase some bad guy comes to mess with the Yardrats. The Yardrat then leads Vegeta and Irico to see the elder Pybara where Pybara introduces himself to them and reveals he was the one who taught Goku the Instant Transmission technique. Vegeta then explains to Pybara the whole situation regarding Moro and asks if he has any techniques to defeat him.
Pybarra replies that there is a misunderstanding regarding Yardrats as they are not blessed with an abundance of techniques like Vegeta thought and reveals that the main source and study of their power to which they devote to is something known as Spirit Control. Vegeta eager to know what this so called Spirit Control is asks the elder Pybara the meaning behind it. A Yardrat says that it is their version of ki which Goku told them about and demonstrates his usage of Spirit Control to Vegeta through performing teleportation and cloning. Pybara also demonstrates his usage of Spirit Control to Vegeta by reverting back to his normal small size from his giant size that he achieved through gigantification much to Irico and Vegeta's surprise that his small size is his true size. Pybara reveals to Vegeta that this is achieved by shifting, splitting or growing one's spirit and if he learns these things that the path of attaining Spirit Control will open up to him so Vegeta tells Pybara to teach him Spirit Control. Soon after he is seen wearing a new garb, meditating but running out of patience as he begins to regret going there.
Nevertheless, Vegeta improves and is said to have polished his spirit to a greater level than Goku did in no time. When it is time for Vegeta to begin learning their techniques, he is told that he will start with the basics, the Instant Transmission. However before they begin he notices a disturbance nearby and Irico tells him that it is the work of Moro's men. Vegeta heads out to confront Yuzun along with two others. He fires a Galick Beam at Yuzun though the blast is unexpectedly powerful and Pybara explains that because he has now created a stronger balance between his body and spirit he has grown much more powerful than before. He easily defeats the two other henchmen and then Yuzun even after he transforms into a monster and learns of Moro's intended visit to Earth. Short on time, he asks Pybara to teach him something that can bring Moro down and spends the next two months training.
By the time of the Galactic Bandit Brigade's assault on Earth, Vegeta is shown to still be training and refuses to rush to Earth to help until he has mastered his new technique saying that he still has time as Moro himself has not yet entered the battle. Eventually he notices that Moro has begun fighting with his opponent being Goku and shortly after he masters his technique. He asks Pybara to teleport him to Earth only to be told that it is against the rules of the Yardrats to teleport off world. Vegeta demands to be taught the Instant Transmission technique himself, saying that he will master it faster than anyone before. Sure enough, after a brief misstep and having turned down Pybara's offer to teleport him to Earth due to it being an emergency, Vegeta successfully teleports himself back to Earth much to Goku's surprise. Telling Goku that he probably wouldn't be able to pull it off again nor has any intention of learning it afterwards, he states that he has learned a superior technique and tells Android 17 and 18 that it is now his turn to fight Moro. After taunting Moro, Vegeta transforms into his Super Saiyan God SS Evolved form and charges straight for him.
Vegeta strikes Moro in the abdomen but the damage is negligible. Moro praises his increased strength but says that it will not be enough. Undeterred Vegeta presses on and Moro becomes more pressured as his initial advantage seems to slip away. Goku realises what is happening and Vegeta confirms that he is using Forced Spirit Fission. As Vegeta beats down Moro, energy leaves his body, forming into a ball in the sky. Now more elderly in appearance, Moro asks Vegeta what he has done to him. Vegeta explains that he has liberated his stolen energy and with a gesture, releases the energy back to where it came from, restoring the previously deceased Namekians back to life. Vegeta even tells Piccolo that he could bring back the Namekians that he had combined with earlier in his life.
Vegeta batters Moro, voicing his distaste for Fusions and Absorption as he craves a fair fight and tells Moro to use his own strength. With Moro on his last legs, Vegeta asks Jaco if he wants him brought in alive or dead with Jaco confirming the latter. After Vegeta proclaims that he will send Moro to Hell, he reminds Vegeta that he still has his Magic and causes a temporary distraction. Moro races to his spaceship where he absorbs Seven-Three and Vegeta takes off after him but is too late, he throws a blast at Moro but when the smoke clears Vegeta is stunned. Below, Goku and the others watch Vegeta crash to the ground having reverted to his base form and shortly after spot Moro in his new powered up form. Vegeta quickly returns, back in his Super Saiyan God SS Evolved form and vows to tear Moro apart. However against Moro's newfound strength, Vegeta is unable to land an attack necessary to perform his Forced Spirit Fission. Moro uses an afterimage to trick Vegeta and appears behind him where he grabs him by the neck. Vegeta quickly breaks free but it is too late as Moro has already copied his abilities. Moro proceeds to pummel Vegeta and knocks him out after using the Big Bang Attack against him.
Vegeta is teleported away from the battlefield along with his other fallen allies where they are eventually healed by Dende. When Goku is having his final battle with Moro, who has now fused himself with the Earth, his only means of victory lies in destroying the crystal on his forehead. However as Moro continues to grow the crystal begins to go further out of reach. That is until Vegeta returns to Goku's side, using his Forced Spirit Fission to rip away Moro's spirit from the Earth and causing him to deflate, giving Goku the opportunity to finish him off. Goku though is entangled by Moro's many fists and has his power drained from him, causing him to return to his base state. Just then Goku's other allies join Vegeta with Piccolo asking if it is possible for Vegeta to send energy Goku's way. Though he is able to, the amount of energy proves to not be enough, that is until a huge ball of god power comes his way via Uub. Vegeta sends the energy to Goku once more, this time proving enough for him to finish off Moro once and for all.
Vegeta goes to Goku to ask him where his final burst of power came from and though Goku says he is not quite sure, Vegeta does not buy his answer. He takes part in the following celebratory feast at Satan House and then a few days later heads to Galactic Patrol Headquarters with Goku and Buu, where along with Jaco they are given honors and medals for their efforts in the battles with Moro. Vegeta is shocked when he sees that Merus has been revived and takes a commemorative photo with everyone before his time with the Galactic Patrol comes to an end.

Using this, a Saiyan can achieve the Great Ape transformation even when a full moon (or similar planetary body) is not present. However, using the technique is apparently very tiring, so it is primarily used as a last resort, and even Saiyans that can use it prefer to transform using a planetary body. The Power Ball disappears after 90 minutes.

Finally, Vegeta shouts "You're out of here!" and blasts the opponent away on the ground with a Big Bang Attack, inflicting a high amount of damage.
- Final Flash - The Final Flash was a technique developed by Vegeta during his first training session in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, appearing to be an upgraded version of his old Final Crash attack.

- Final Explosion - To begin the attack, Vegeta gathers his life force and converts it into energy, creating flame-like ribbons of energy that spiral around his body. Both his and his opponent's bodies begin emitting small flecks of golden light, resembling dust blowing off of their skin.
- Scatter Grenades – Vegeta charges up and fires several energy spheres randomly in the opponent's direction, disregarding accuracy and with no intent on actually hitting the enemy. With efficient ki control, the multiple energy spheres are suspended in the air, completely surrounding them.

- 10x Final Flash - a more powerful version of Vegeta's Final Flash introduced in Dragon Ball SF. Vegeta first used this while transformed into a Super Saiyan 4 during his fight against Azure in the Azure Saga.
Great ApeAs with all Universe 7 Saiyans, Vegeta can transform into the colossal Great Ape form while retaining his tail and absorbing enough Blutz Waves. Vegeta first was seen using this form against the Z Fighters when he first came to Earth. Unlike most Saiyans, Vegeta retains his rationality and composure when transformed and changing back. Likewise, he also retains the ability to fully speak and manipulate his energy for feats such as flying. Once assuming this form, Vegeta's ki is fully replenished and his overall power is increase by ten times more than his normal form. Despite his immense increase in size and bulk, he is noted by Goku to have grown equally faster in this form. In direct proportion to his paramount size, his ears are become equally keen, able to detective the most minute sounds from great distances.
Super SaiyanThough it was only a Saiyan Legend at the time, Vegeta was fascinated with this transformation and obsessed over obtaining it so that he could cement his status as a warrior of legend and one of the strongest in history. Seeing Goku achieve this form first and used it to defeat Frieza only fueled his desire to unlock the potential hidden within him. Vegeta attained this form during his time training at 300x gravity in the gravity chamber. Once using this form, his muscle mass increases slightly, his skin-tone turns lighter, his hair turns blond, and his eyes turn green. He also is able to generate a golden aura and his peek performance increases either 10 fold or 50 fold from his base form. Vegeta first showed off the Super Saiyan state while he was fighting Android 19, where the increase of stamina and ki was so great, he could afford to let the android absorb some of his energy, all for the purpose of ripping his foes hands and thereby rendering it defenseless before destroying it.
Super Saiyan 2nd GradeThis 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 Grade Super Saiyan, which significantly decreases speed (but greatly increases in strength). Vegeta went through this transformation when he was training to fight Cell in his Semi-Perfect form. He also used it against Cell in his Perfect form (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 Android 18, he was still ahead in every way, though Vegeta is able to tell that Cell was holding back his power, and this is proven when Cell does not use anything close to his full power to defeat Vegeta with ease.
Super Saiyan 3rd Grade
Future Trunks speculates that Vegeta achieved this form during his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber but did not use it, Cell also says that Vegeta could transform into this form but did not use because he knew of its disadvantages.
Super Saiyan - Full PowerAfter realizing the weaknesses inherent to the higher Super Saiyan grades, Vegeta concluded that mastery over the basic Super Saiyan form would be more suitable after learning that Goku and Gohan reach this level of a Super Saiyan through training in the Hyperbolic time chamber.Gradually, he overcame the heightened aggression and uneasiness that accompanies this form to feel as natural as his base form, reducing the energy drain to nothing and increasing his endurance to achieve a max output for this form without drawbacks even in regularly life. This allows him to fight at his full potential and not lose energy like an untrained Super Saiyan.
Super Saiyan 2Vegeta attained this form through many years of intense training.When Vegeta transforms to a Super Saiyan 2, he receives some noticeable changes, such as his hair growing a little bit longer, spikier and becoming more defined than his other previous Super Saiyan forms. He also gains electricity in the aura surrounding his body in this form. His power in this form is double that of his Super Saiyan form.
Vegeta is first seen in this form when he fights against Goku while as Demon Prince 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 to base as Goku fails to charge up to his full power due to energy depletion.
Demon PrinceDemon Prince (魔王子), also known as Majin Vegeta (魔人ベジータ), is a powered up form taken on by Vegeta. Vegeta takes this form when Babidi harnesses the evil in Vegeta's heart to take control of him, giving him a significant boost in power, including maintaining his Super Saiyan form. While having the Demon mark on his forehead, dark black lines around the eyes, and increased muscle mass puff up to the level that veins appear all over Vegeta's body and face. Vegeta's dark nature is reawakened and he becomes more powerful than he was before (thanks to Babidi's magic unlocking his potential), the Manipulation Sorcery also gives him other special traits - including a seemingly unlimited stamina supply and the ability to survive and heal from injuries in an almost zombie-like way. Demon Prince Vegeta usually fights at the level of Super Saiyan 2 and his power equals that of Goku at his Super Saiyan 2 level. After Vegeta is killed by his devastating Final Explosion as a last resort to destroy Majin Buu, he loses his Demon Prince state and reverts to his normal stage, but retains the power boost gained from it.
Super Saiyan 2 (Enraged)When severely angered enough in battle, Vegeta's power will rise dramatically during the emotional state, turning him into Prince of Rage Vegeta. Against the God of Destruction Beerus, Vegeta was able to briefly hold his own against and even land several solid blows on the infamously powerful deity, something not even Super Saiyan 3 Goku, Potential Unleashed Gohan, or the combined effort of the Dragon Team were capable of doing while Beerus heavily suppressed himself. In the anime, Beerus noted he needed 10% of his power to defeat Vegeta, something no one had accomplished in eons.
Super Saiyan GodThrough the ritual with six pure-hearted Saiyans, Vegeta became a Super Saiyan God at some point prior to Frieza's revenge during his six months of training under Whis - which eventually led to him obtaining the Super Saiyan Blue form.
God-like SaiyanAfter experiencing the power of Super Saiyan God, Vegeta gained the ability to use it's god-like power without changing form. When in this state, if Vegeta tries to become a Super Saiyan he will instead become Super Saiyan Blue.
Super Saiyan BlueDuring training with Whis, Vegeta learned that by attempting to transform into a Super Saiyan while in his God-like Saiyan state would cause him to transform into a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. It is currently Vegeta's strongest form and at many times he's been able to enhanced the transformations power through different means. In this form Vegeta's hair becomes blue and he gains a sharp, silky blue aura. Vegeta uses the form against Golden Frieza after Goku had been taken out and switched turns with him. After the battle against Golden Frieza, Vegeta uses this transformation while training with Goku. When in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Vegeta transforms so he and Goku could go all out in the room.
During the Tournament of Destroyers, Vegeta's displays the form to Cabba, whom Vegeta took a mentor role over. When Vegeta transformed against Hit, the power of the form was reduced to less than 10% due to this being Vegeta's fourth match in a row and the form requires a certain amount of stamina to maintain. Despite being more powerful than Hit's suppressed state, Vegeta was incapable of hitting him due to Hit's Time Skip ability and was totally dominated, unable to even land a single strike on him.
Later while fighting Goku Black, Vegeta was initially able to dominate Black until he turned Super Saiyan Rosé. Then, Vegeta was swiftly crushed by Goku Black and nearly killed with a ki blade through the chest. After returning from the present Vegeta was once again crushed by the duo of Zamasu and Goku Black and escapes with the near dead Goku and after a quick training session in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber was able to finally mount and defeat Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black.
Super Saiyan Blue EvolvedThrough anger at Goku breaking his limits and getting one step ahead once more, Vegeta drew on the pride of nearly all his training over the years was purely self-taught, letting him evolve his Perfected Super Saiyan Blue state. In the anime, as noted by the angels, this transformation is in essence a unleashed by breaking a mental shell in subconscious to unlock a much deeper portion of his potential, similar to Ultra Instinct -Sign-.
In the anime, while fighting Jiren alongside Goku in the last minutes of the Tournament of Power, Vegeta awakens to a new power beyond Super Saiyan Blue with power rivaling Goku's Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken. It appears similar to Super Saiyan Blue but with darker hair, and visible black pupils while the irises are royal blue. Physically, he is built similar to Super Saiyan Second Grade, sporting somewhat sharper hair and his muscle mass increasing somewhat. He also can generate a denser aura that is a darker shade of blue and the particles sparkling about it.
TuffleizedLike Majin Vegeta, this is a form outside the normal Saiyan transformations. This was achieved when Vegeta was cut and then infected by the alien Baby. Vegeta was able to resist the takeover longer than 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 white in favor of the golden color of Super Saiyan, and red marks appear on his face. There is also a massive power augmentation. 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 Vegeta 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", Baby was transformed into a Golden Great Ape in order to compete with Super Saiyan 4 Goku. After his tail is severed, Baby Vegeta reverts to Vegeta's normal state and Baby leaves Vegeta's body.
Tuffleized Super SaiyanDue to being made into a permanent host by the Tuffle Baby inside him, when Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan, he has red lines across his face, crosshair-like lines on his eyes (a common trait among Machine Mutants) and silver-white hair and black eyes in place of the golden blond and green eyes typically seen of Super Saiyans, due to being a Tuffle-Saiyan hybrid.
Strongest Form 1Once Baby Vegeta gathers energy from Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Bulla, Vegeta's body goes through further developments. These include an increase of muscle mass that rips apart his shirt, his eyes becoming blue-colored visors, red lines sprawling across his chest and forehead, the acquiring of large metallic shoulder pads, and Vegeta's hair returning to its original length. Baby does not assume this form for long, as he soon gains enough energy from his followers to prompt a further transformation. Upon reaching this form, Baby says he is now the strongest being in the universe, a claim which is confirmed by Goku. This form might be a version of Vegeta as a Super Saiyan 2; the form that Baby Vegeta had before transforming into this state was a Super Saiyan, and Strongest Form 2 is also implied to be the Tuffle-Saiyan version of Super Saiyan 3. This form's hair also resembles Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta's hair, as it is spiked.
Strongest Form 2After sapping his mind slaves of their energies worldwide, Baby Vegeta again transforms, Baby's being dominating Vegeta's body so much that it bears a great resemblance to his real form. He now wears a black bodysuit with red and gold-colored gloves, boots and shoulder pads. His physical structure also has been completely altered, now bearing almost no resemblance to Vegeta, but rather mimicking a humanoid version of Baby's adult form. When Baby leaves Vegeta's body, he briefly retains Strongest Form 2 before reverting to normal. This form might be a version of Vegeta as a Super Saiyan 3; the first volume of the Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files states that "Strongest Form 2, which resembles Super Saiyan 3"; this claim is supported by the fact that the form lacks eyebrows and has the augmented browline, Vegeta could have used Baby's extra power to reach the form, and also because of Baby Vegeta's previous two forms can be seen as his equivalents to Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2. Additionally, in the video game Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha, Super Saiyan 4 has 1.25x the power of Super Saiyan 3, and Baby's Golden Great Ape form has around 1.2x the power of his Super Baby 2 form, suggesting that it is Super Saiyan 3. Additionally it is noted in the Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files that his hair is longer in this state than in his previous forms - one of which is confirmed to be Super Saiyan, and the other of which is implied to be Super Saiyan 2. The extremely long hair might be absent due to Baby shaping it to match his own appearance.
Tuffleized Golden Great ApeBaby Vegeta achieved this transformation of a Great Ape after receiving Blutz Waves from Bulma's Blutz Wave Generator. Baby Vegeta takes this form after receiving 1,000 times the normal amount of Blutz Waves. Baby Vegeta transforms into a Golden Great Ape. This is his strongest form, as shown when he easily pounded Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Despite his immense size, he is surprisingly fast as he was able to keep up with the much smaller Goku for a time.
Like Goku in this form, he has golden fur that covers most of his body but retains the "armor" that Baby naturally possesses. His eyes are different from normal Great Apes, as is his skin, which is blue colored rather than the brown color that normal Great Apes have. Like all the other Great Apes and Golden Great Apes, he is much larger than his normal form.
Golden Great ApeAfter 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 that she used against Baby, which allows Vegeta to grow his tail back and become a Great Ape and then a Golden Great Ape. After Vegeta becomes fully conscious of himself, he transforms into a Super Saiyan 4.
Super Saiyan 4Bulma 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 transformed into a Super Saiyan 4. Vegeta's features are quite different from his previous forms: his hair changes, the top becoming long again and nearly identical to his original hairstyle becoming longer, while becoming "wild" to extending past his shoulders and turning dark brown in color. His eyes are aqua-colored with a red outline, and he has red fur on the upper part of his body, except for the chest. Noteworthy, Vegeta is not able to become a Super Saiyan 4 at will like Goku does. He instead needs to be exposed to enough concentrated Blutz Waves if he wants to take on the form, which will only last for about ten minutes. Once returning to normal, he also loses his tail again. This is probably because he did not naturally regain his tail like Goku did. In Dragon Ball SF, After training with Kibito-Shin and Old Kai in the sacred world of the Kais, Vegeta manages to full y re-grow his Saiyan Tail and later learns to transform into a Super Saiyan 4 at will.
Super Full Power Saiyan 4A special state that is obtained by gathering enough energy to push his body well-past his normal limits. In Dragon Ball SF prior before Goku, Vegeta and Piccolo's depature to the Divine Realm, Vegeta acquired the combined energy from Gohan, Goten, Trunks, and Pan to unlock this state. In addition to drastically augmenting his might, it likewise equally enhances his senses, letting him react to practically any threat. He is also shown able to absorb enemy energy attacks, nullifying their damage. This state is symbolized by a radiating red glow from his entire body.
VegitoThe Potara fusion between Vegeta and Goku. He was created as a desperate plan by Old Kai to stop the powerful Super Buu. With unrivaled power, Vegito is one of the most powerful beings in Dragon Ball Z and is created as a desperate plan by Old Kai to stop the powerful Super Buu, when he was winning against Ultimate Gohan after absorbing Gotenks and Piccolo. At only base form, this fusion had a slight advantage against the Majin. Once transforming into Super Saiyan, he pummeled Buu without even needing to use his fists or any effort. It was obvious he had the physical power to maintain such feats, but he only appeared for a short time before his strategy to deliberately be absorbed into Buu's body (whilst keeping a barrier on to avoid being assimilated into his being) resulted in the ending of his time limit, resulting in diffusion.
Vegito later makes an appearance in Dragon Ball Super and uses Super Saiyan Blue to fight Fused Zamasu, where they learn that mortals using the Potara Earrings can only remain fused for an hour, while Gods remain permanently fused. Goku's adaptive and creative nature along with Vegeta's analytical and 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 immense power and speed of both Goku and Vegeta amplified to great degrees, as well as the tactics and skill of both. He is very similar to Gogeta, who is another fusion of Goku and Vegeta. Elder Kai mentions the innate rivalry between Goku and Vegeta makes the fusion far more powerful then usual.
GogetaThe Fusion 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 used to fight against Broly in Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
Vegeta contributed his Saiyan smarts, and his power. It is Metamorans who taught Goku the technique. As a Super Saiyan 4, Gogeta is one of the strongest known beings 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.
