Top 10 Worst Things Vegeta Has Done

Feels like it was only yesterday he was trying to blow up the planet. How times flies. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Worst Things Vegeta Has Done.

For this list, we’ll be looking at all the terrible things that the Prince of Saiyans got up to over the course of the Dragon Ball franchise. That’s not to say we don’t love this prideful asshat, but there’s no denying that he’s got so much dirty laundry from his villain days that it could fill up an asteroid field.

#10: Freezing up Against Broly


Yes, yes, yes, we’re very much aware that the latest Dragon Ball Super movie has completely retconned this particularly shameful moment…but we’re not going to miss out an opportunity to make fun of him for it. Upon the reveal that Broly was the legendary Super Saiyan, instead of immediately stepping up to the plate, Vegeta spent the majority of the film suffering a complete mental breakdown. Why? Because Broly is just that powerful. Seriously, watching Vegeta shudder like that is just…unbecoming. Get your head in the game man!

#9: Not Saving His Wife and Child


Nowadays we all know that Vegeta is practically the perfect family man, in his own…special way. However, that wasn’t always the case. High on his own power after finally becoming a Super Saiyan, Vegeta became so obsessed with taking down the likes of Doctor Gero that it almost cost Bulma and Trunks their lives. If not for Future Trunks leaping into the fray at the last minute, Vegeta would have lost his family in Gero’s retaliatory attack…though at this stage we doubt he would have noticed.

#8: The Moustache


Admit it, that piece of facial hair is as much of a crime as any of the deaths that Vegeta has inflicted during his time as a bad guy. Seriously just what was he thinking? It looks so weird and yet we can’t stop looking at it, like some-kind of hairy black hole. It even became a damn plot point when Vegeta finally shaved it off, only for nobody to notice. At least we can take some solace in the way that he pronounces moustache.

#7: Killing Recoome and Burter


So the Ginyu Force weren’t exactly the nicest of people, and after all the damage they had caused, the likes of Recoome and company certainly deserved to get their comeuppance, which they ended up receiving courtesy of Goku. Of course with Vegeta being Vegeta, he wasn’t content to just leave their bodies broken and their spirits crushed. He went in for the kill. Make all the arguments you want about these Frieza lackies deserving to live or not, but killing them while they were practically comatose doesn’t exactly paint you as a symbol of true strength.

#6: Killing Nappa


The tragedy of watching this great man die hit us all hard. Nappa was one in a million. A loyal soldier. A powerful Saiyan. A warrior through and through that may have one day risen above the rest to become a champion all could aspire to. He was more than just an insurgent with a habit for making weird mime children explode, he was…a friend. And then Vegeta tossed him into the air like a frisbee before blasting him into pieces after his usefulness had run out. Monster.

#5: Letting Cell Achieve His Perfect Form


Quite possibly the most poignant example of how dangerous Vegeta’s pride could really be, his overwhelming confidence in his own power proved to be his undoing after letting the ultimate android fulfil its purpose. By letting Cell absorb Android 18, he achieved a form that was even too much for the Saiyan Prince to handle. Not only did this result in Cell shattering both Vegeta’s body and his spirit, but also paved the way for all the deaths that came after. Including that of his future son.

#4: Blowing up a Bug Planet


Vegeta and Nappa’s journey to Earth wasn’t without its obstacles. At some point, they ended up taking a detour to a planet made of insectoids. This little adventure included them being imprisoned, breaking out, killing a massive bug beast, overthrowing a monarchy and actually doing some good for the populace. How did it all end? Vegeta blowing up the planet without a second thought. You know, considering what happened to his own world, he really shouldn’t be throwing stones, or planet-busting ki blasts in this case.

#3: Killing a Crowd of People


Well, that’s certainly one way to reintroduce yourself as a bad guy. After allowing himself to be controlled by Babidi, Vegeta ushered in his new Majin form by killing a whole group of innocent bystanders at the World Martial Arts Tournament, all to prove that the Dark Prince had truly returned. It’s a rather shocking sight, and the perfect demonstration of just how eager Vegeta was to embrace his chance at establishing himself as a bonafied villain. Have fun explaining that one to Bulma…

#2: Killing Namekians


While the blame for the massacre of the Namekian people often falls upon the likes of Frieza and his minions, there’s no escaping the fact that Vegeta also contributed to the body pile. He may have put the genocide business behind him, but his desperate search for the Dragon Balls didn’t leave room for much mercy, hence why he killed anyone who came between him and his wish-granting orbs. This unfortunately included plenty of civilians along the way. You can’t be an anti-hero without breaking a few green eggs, apparently.

#1: Nearly Destroying the Earth


It’s easy to forget at times that before he was defending Universe 7 from annihilation, Vegeta was one of the biggest threats the Earth had ever seen. On his mission to recover the Dragon Balls, the Saiyan Elite finally met his match in his fated confrontation with Goku. Given the absurd level of arrogance that he had back then, the Prince of Saiyans eventually decided that the only way to best his foe and prove his superiority…would be to blow up the planet, courtesy of a Galick Gun.
