Prince Vegeta (ベジータ, Bejīta) is one of the last surviving members of the Saiyan race. Initially an elite combatant in Freeza's Army, Vegeta became a loose ally of Son Gokū and his friends while on Namek and gradually became their comrade. He soon becomes an instrumental warrior in maintaining the peace on Earth.


  • Vegeta in the Saiyan arc.
  • Vegeta in the Androids and Cell Arc and in God and God.
  • Vegeta in Revival of 'F' and the Champa Arc.
  • Vegeta in the anime-only Dragon Ball GT.

Vegeta has a signature hair style that firmly stands upwards, with a prominent widow's peak. Like all Saiyans, he possesses black eyes, jet black hair that never grows in length, and had a tail before it was cut off by Yajirobe. Vegeta is noticeably shorter than Gokū. Vegeta continues to don the traditional Saiyan armor for a large portion of his appearances, until he integrates into Earthly society eventually favoring clothing more characteristic of a human altogether. Very briefly, after training in the Room of Spirit and Time with Gokū for three years, Vegeta grew facial hair, specifically a mustache and beard, though it was soon shaved.[11]

Creation and Conception


  • Vegeta's name is a pun on vegetable.
  • Vegeta is the first antagonist of the overall series to seek the Dragon Balls for immortality.
  • Though rarely, he has addressed Gokū by his Earthling name, rather than his Saiyan name.
  • Despite wanting to surpass Gokū, the latter has never defeated him. Though it could be that Gokū wounded his pride (considering his elite rank).
  • Vegeta constantly refers himself as Prince of the Saiyans despite technically being the King since his father's death.
  • Vegeta, while being controlled by Baby, is the only user to have shown the ability to fly while being transformed into a Great Monkey.
  • Despite all pure-blooded Saiyans having black hair — a statement from Vegeta himself — Vegeta's hair is often portrayed as brown or maroon in most forms of the media except the anime, where it is a stark black. The same applies to Vegetto.
  • According to the Dragon Ball Super rival 'danger scale', Vegeta places three stars out of twelve.[12]


  • (Upon rescuing Gokū from Android 19) "Nobody kills Kakarot while I'm around. Destiny has reserved that pleasure for me!"
  • (To Android 19) "That's right, my friend. Now let me ask you: does a machine like yourself ever experience fear?!"
  • (To Cell) "Now, I'm going to show you what true power really is! That's right! I'm Super Vegeta!"
  • (To Babidi, when breaking free from his control) "It will take more than head games to stop me! You may have invaded my mind and my body, but there's one thing a Saiyan always keeps...His pride!"
  • (To Majin Bū) "What are you gawking at!? What, did you think that I was gonna roll over and die from an attack like that? You're nothing, just a trickster! I am the Saiyan Prince, Vegeta!"
  • (When preparing to sacrifice himself to kill Majin Bū) "Trunks... Bulma... I do this for you... and yes, even for you, Kakarot!"
