Son Goku’s first enemy before becoming his greatest rival, ally, and perhaps friend, Vegeta is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated characters Dragon ball. We pay tribute to him with eight anecdotes to know about the Prince of Saiyan.
1 / Akira Toriyama doesn’t like her very much
Although he is one of the main characters in the manga, Akira Toriyama said he doesn’t like Vegeta very much but has been very helpful in moving the story forward. Half a word admitting that Vegeta is not ready to fulfill his dream (defeating Goku)?
2 / The fans saved Vegeta
Akira Toriyama said he was influenced by requests from fans not wanting Vegeta to die on the show. This proves the huge popularity of the character among fans Dragon ball. A popularity that we can understand given the fact that Vegeta is without question the most complex and in some ways the most human figure in the universe Dragon ball. At least we will all agree, saying that he is undoubtedly, along with Picolo, the one with the most interesting evolution. 7
3 / He has already defeated Son Goku
Vegeta has a great rival: Son Goku. And his goal has always been to surpass him. He did it several times, but each time Goku quickly regained the advantage, which only irritates Vegeta. So, facing Moro, the last great antagonist Dragon Ball SuperVegeta reveals the fruits of his training with a completely new and impressive technique: Forced Fission of Spirit, allowing him to gain an advantage over his opponent for a while. But quickly it was Goku’s turn to reveal the fruits of his training, along with the Ultra-Instinct upgrade.
4 / Secrets of his name
As everyone knows, Akira Toriyama likes to name her characters inspired by culinary vocabulary. So, all Saiyans have a name that refers to vegetables : Son Goku’s real name, Kakarot, means “carrot”, Raditz – radish, Nappa – cabbage. If the Gohan (rice dish) and Trunks do not have vegetable names, it is because they are half Saiyans. Even the word Saiyan in Japanese Saiya-jin is an anagram of “yasai”, the Japanese word for “vegetables.” Vegeta (a reference to the English word “vegetable”, vegetables) is Prince Saiyan, Prince of Vegetables …
5 / Vegeta has a brother
If we all know the brother of Son Goku (Raditz), however, we know less, the younger brother of Vegeta. He appeared in a TV movie Dragon Ball: Hello! Son Goku and his friends are backreleased in 2008, Tarble asked his older brother, whom he admires, to help fight two enemies. Despite looking like a younger version of Vegeta, Tarble does not share his brother’s character and has to face his contempt for his weakness.
6 / He is the first mortal to defeat the God of Destruction
Dragon Ball Super greatly enlarged and made the universe Dragon ball, with the creation of many parallel universes and the Gods of Destruction. Incredibly strong, the Gods of Destruction seem almost unbeatable. But, Vegeta defeated one of them, or rather the contender to the Universe 11 God of Destruction, Toppo, in the Power Tournament..
7 / That’s over 9,000
This is probably one of the most famous memes on the internet. During his first fight with Son Goku, Vegeta is stunned by his opponent’s enormous power, which he observes impressive growth thanks to his Scouter (a device that allows you to calculate power). When Nappa asks him how much Goku costs, Vegeta replies: “Over 9000 !!!“Except thatthis is an error of the English translation: indeed, in the original version, Goku’s power exceeds 8000.
8 / her hairstyle has changed
As Vegeta once told his wife Bulma, Saiyans do not change their hairstyle during their existence. Except for him, of courseSince he was younger, he had curls that fell over his forehead.
