"A Saiyan's power IS HIS PRIDE!"

The Prince of All Saiyans. The Super Elite Warrior. The last of the Saiyan royalty, and fourth of his name.

THE Shōnen Rival.

Vegeta started out as a villain who came to Earth to use the Dragon Balls for his own ends. But after that battle and his repeated run-ins with the heroes, he slowly but surely starts to come over to the heroes' side...eventually, it takes him a while, but just because he sits firmly on the heroic side nowadays, don't think that means he's gotten soft. If anything, having people he cares about has made him stronger than ever, and woe betides those who threaten them...

A beloved Breakout Character, Vegeta's popularity and iconic competitiveness with Goku led to him becoming a classical example of The Rival, and by the end of Z and especially Super, the series Deuteragonist.
