Is that all you have to say? Indeed, I am arrogant. But to me, that's precisely what my pride as a Saiyan is! I'll never beat you?! Don't make me laugh! I can never throw away who I am! Kakarotto can have his Ultra Instinct! I'll defeat you in my own way, Jiren!

Vegeta IV (ベジータ四世, Bejīta Yonsei)[11][12], recognized as Prince Vegeta (ベジータ王子, Bejīta Ōji), more commonly addressed as just "Vegeta", 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 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.[13]

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.[14]


FUNimation Japanese
  • (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!"
  • (When preparing to sacrifice himself to kill Majin Bū) "Trunks... Bulma... I do this for you... and yes, even for you, Kakarot!"
  • (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!"
  • (Vegeta in episode 2 of Dragon Ball Super) "Fine, Kakarot, you are the mightiest Saiyan, I've admitted that much. At least for now. But don't you dare think that this is over. I won't let you keep me in second place forever, feeding on the scraps of your glory. I will surpass you, and even then I'll keep pushing, I'll surpass every single warrior in the Universe. I won't stop until I'm the ultimate number one."
  • (Vegeta while overwhelming Toppo and declaring that he won't lose to someone who abandons his principles like that) "I'm not like you! I cast aside nothing! With only this amount of power, how can you call yourself stronger? You're a loser who can't even protect his own pride! I won't lose to someone like you!"
