* CloudCuckooLander: Probably because of all the craziness happening around him, Vegeta's own sanity seems to be weak. Especially in Season 3.

Added DiffLines:

* UnknownRival: Much to his chagrin, some of the villains like the Androids and Cooler don't know who he is and tend to ignore him.


* AbusiveParents: [[ParentalNeglect Goku]], [[EducationMama Chi-Chi]], and [[DrillSergeantNasty Piccolo]] may not have done a great job of raising Gohan, but Vegeta makes them look like "Parents of the Year."

** Also, Vegeta had [[ParentalNeglect King Vegeta]], [[TheDitz Nappa]], and ''[[ArchEnemy Frieza]]'' as his father figures. One can't learn to be a better parent under them.

** Episode 18, when he realizes Gohan's stolen his Dragonball. ''This'' one's so intense that his unholy screaming can be heard half a planet away by Frieza, ''[[UpToEleven across the reaches of space]]'' by Goku in his ship, and '''[[BeyondTheImpossible twenty years in the future by Future Trunks.]]'''

** As has been pointed out, Vegeta is a consistent victim of "Pride before the fall", when his ego hits critical mass is when he gets the smug physically beaten out of him. This has happened with Frieza to Vegeta's belief he had become a Super Saiyan, with 18 when he ''did'' become a Super Saiyan, and with Perfect Cell when he reached Ascended Saiyan.

* HeyYou: Befitting his more jerkish personality compared to the canon where he at least call others by their name, Abridged Vegeta almost ''never'' calls anyone by their name. Often calling Bulma "the woman", Trunks as "the boy", Tien as "triclops" or Mr. Popo as "Black Man". Ironically, the only people that he consistently call by their name in this version is Goku, Nappa, and Frieza, aka three of the people that Vegeta hated the most throughout his life.

** Also, back when he worked for Frieza's army, he made a habit of throwing dog treats at Guldo, he even suggested to Gohan and Krillin to do the same while fighting him, just because he finds it hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

** When this happens in "Abridged Kai 3", most of his dialogue towards 18 consists of the C-word. 18 proceeds to beat him into a terrified mess.

Added DiffLines:

* AxCrazy: Is quick to resort to violence even when ''calm''.

Added DiffLines:

* MiseryTrigger: While claiming to be stronger than him will make him want to beat you up, proving that you are stronger than him will have him crying... [[RunningGag Like a bitch]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Shockingly, Vegeta has a moment of this when Cell is killed. In the original story, he wallows in self-pity, being dumbfounded how both Goku and his son were able to surpass him in power. Here, he just waits for Trunks to be revived.


** In the ''Broly'' special, his very first decree as King is that his son will be referred to as "Princess Trunks."

Added DiffLines:

** PlayedForLaughs, but he refrains from telling Krillin what Freeza's mother ''actually'' looks like because "[[NothingIsScarier he must never know]]".


** It's more an issue of horrible spectacle than morality, but even Vegeta is given pause when [[spoiler:the Namekians mutilate and cannibalize Guru.]]

Added DiffLines:

** He was also genuinely surprised when Guldo told him that Burter was gay, but never brought it up.


* AffablyEvil: He has his moments, like when Nappa denied being Saiyans and Vegeta responded with "Don't be rude, Nappa".



* BaitTheDog: After killing Nappa, Vegeta exclaims that he's so relived to be rid of him that he might just leave Earth alone. As soon as Krillin says "Really?", he drops the other shoe.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain:

to:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain:PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His go-to insults are usually based on species, gender or sexuality.



* TookALevelInKindness: No, seriously. He's still a massive prick, but as of his beatdown at the hands of Perfect Cell he's shared a lot more comradery and one or two moments of genuine pride with the others.
