In the aftermath of his defeat on Earth, Vegeta traveled to Namek.

Rejuvenation and Namek arrival Edit

Upon arriving at a Freeza station, Vegeta was rejuvenated in a healing chamber, all the while thinking about having to get the Dragon Balls on Namek and blaming Nappa for what occurred on Earth. Dr. Birdenheim informed Vegeta that the group was unable to save his tail and even though the latter insisted he could live without it, Birdenheim claimed he would be a shell of his former self and mocked for not having a component of his body, leading Vegeta to conclude that he could probably kill all of them without Freeza becoming concerned in the slightest, afterward Birdenheim pointing out that his tail still would not return even if he did so.

Vegeta killing Cui

Vegeta asked the doctor what his favorite internal organs was and ripped out his liver when he answered, thinking to himself that killing was one of the simple things in life before encountering Cui. The latter sought to inquire about where Vegeta was going and grossed him out when he responded that his race reproduced asexually when Vegeta claimed that he was going off to plow his mother. Cui made it apparent that Freeza had learned of the Dragon Balls and their function, also informing Vegeta that the scouter was on the entire time. Vegeta refuted his claim in saying that his scouter had been off the entire time and asked who it was before realizing it was Nappa that had made the mistake and yelling his name in departing for the planet.[1]

Vegeta arrived on Namek and became annoyed instantly when he started hearing screaming, that of Krillin. He encountered Cui for a second time and the latter retorted that he had plowed his mother, leading Vegeta to inform him that his mother was dead. After Cui confirmed that he was aware, Vegeta asked his power level and though Cui touted it as being the same as his, Vegeta mentioned that Saiyans had their power level increase each time they almost died and informed Cui of his defeat at the hands of Goku, Gohan, Krillin and Yajirobe. With Cui questioning why he was informing him of his defeat, Vegeta answered that he knew Cui would never tell anyone and promptly killed him, remarking that he loved therapy.[2]

Murdering Dodoria and Zarbon Edit

Vegeta knocked Dodoria out of the sky and greeted her, mentioning that he was looking for the Dragon Balls. Dodoria offered him a deal, which was for Vegeta to give her his scouter and not risk her telling Freeza of the encounter. Vegeta removed the scouter, telling Dodoria it had a problem, which he said was it being broken as he crushed it with his foot. Dodoria assumed that Vegeta was now unable to detect energy just like them, but Vegeta stated she was incorrect as he had learned how to sense energy while on Earth, though he did not understand how he had gained this ability.

Dodoria then put two and two together and concluded that Gohan and Krillin were sent by Vegeta to lure him away, but the latter ignored this and claimed that all he could hear was Dodoria calling for him to kill her as well as making general insults about her appearance such as her armor making her look fat which he further stated was part of what she was saying. Dodoria fired at him, but Vegeta was able to get behind and then hold her down. Dodoria then tried to reveal to Vegeta that Freeza had destroyed his home planet, but Vegeta was already aware of this. Vegeta unintentionally alluded to Dodoria's gender and was surprised to learn that she was female, being further disturbed by her story of being the most attractive woman on her home planet, which he reasoned that he was going to start repressing the truth and killed her despite her offer to rule the galaxy as husband and wife.[3]

Vegeta after being defeated by Zarbon

Vegeta arrived in a Namekian village, where he was greeted by the village elder who asked if he wanted to see their Dragon Ball. Vegeta proceeded to slaughter the village and was sensed by the others in doing so. Afterward, he encountered Zarbon while the latter was flying around and rushed into him, dubbing him a "pansy". Zarbon responded by calling on Vegeta to not ram into him while he thought of Freeza in his thong, leading Vegeta to state that he intended to ignore that he had just said that. Vegeta mentioned Dodoria as a past example and bested Zarbon for the most part until he started gloating about having defeated each one of the soldiers he had encountered since arriving there. Zarbon transformed and despite the latter claiming that the form was completely different from him in every way, Vegeta reputed his claim and said the only difference was that he was more direct. Zarbon overwhelmed Vegeta by ramming his head into Vegeta's continuously until he fell into water, recovering after Zarbon left and asking himself why he exploded.[4]

Following his defeat by Zarbon, the comatose Vegeta dreamed that he was summoning Shenron and having his wish for immortality being granted. Though he was unconscious, Vegeta was still heard by Zarbon stating that he was unstoppable, the latter commenting that he was petering out as Vegeta's leg started moving back and forth, and later said his power was maximum while being taken away by Zarbon. Vegeta was healed at Freeza's spaceship, where he woke from his comatose state by Nappa's ghost telling him that he was now thinking about what Zarbon did to him while he was unconscious. Vegeta then busted out of the healing tank and easily took care of Appule, who was left to guard him by Zarbon, the latter finding his body after Vegeta's escape.

Vegeta noticed Zarbon leaving the spaceship and thought to himself that he was correct in the latter not thinking to look for him in their own ship, where Vegeta hid as Zarbon left while following the saying, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." Vegeta laughed aloud as a soldier located him, after which Vegeta conceited his hiding place by blowing a hole through the top of the spaceship and then killing the soldier. Vegeta sung to himself as he stole the Dragon Balls, throwing them into the water, where he hid as well. Vegeta took them out of the water and to his hiding place, where he stated that he now had six and would have to keep cover before noticing Krillin carrying one, which would complete his set. Vegeta went after him, ordering him to "come to papa" and calling him a "bald bastard".

Vegeta was seen by Zarbon before he confronted Krillin and Bulma over the former's Dragon Ball and ordered him to hand it to him, before Zarbon intervened. The two both wanted the Dragon Ball from Krillin and Vegeta told Zarbon that he only defeated him once, then asking him if he did anything to him while he was unconscious and after Zarbon declined with "God no!", he was relieved momentarily but began to question Zarbon as to whether or not he was not good enough for him. Vegeta was shocked by him saying that their conversation was starting to "sound gay" and ordered him to transform afterward. When he did, Vegeta knocked a hole into his chest and then fired a beam directly through as he proclaimed he was about to blow his "load" all over Zarbon's "insides", ending it with a "No homo" as he fired a beam through him and killed him. After Zarbon's death, Vegeta called him, "Freaky alien genotype."[5]

Losing Dragon Ball Edit

Vegeta after Krillin gives him the last Dragon Ball.

With Zarbon out of the way, Vegeta received the Dragon Ball from Krillin, almost forgetting it thanks to Krillin. Vegeta told him and Bulma that although he could kill the pair, he decided not to since he was in "a really good mood" and exclaimed that the next time they saw him they would not stand a chance due to his immortality, also stating that they already did not and explaining that he was "just Saiyan." Vegeta left and then sung to himself as he flew, soon afterward sensing Gohan as the latter was coming back from retrieving one of the Dragon Balls Vegeta had collected in order to fulfill his wish. Gohan took cover as Vegeta stopped, noting that he had just sensed a power level and ordered Gohan, who he still did not know was the power level, to show himself before he turned his hiding ground into a barren wasteland which he admitted was the same thing apart from being on fire.

Vegeta started a countdown before Gohan revealed himself and he called the child "Moe Howard", leaving Gohan asking just how he even knew about him since he was an alien from outer space, where Vegeta revealeded he had knowledge of Howard thanks to Space Hulu. Gohan stated he was just flying around and Vegeta questioned if he was thwarting his plans and stated that he would have to kill him if he was and noted that Gohan had a stupid looking "watch", which the latter explained as only telling time, Vegeta retorting that was what a watch is supposed to do and calling him a "dumbass". After Gohan asked if he could help him, Vegeta confirmed he could not, but stated the possibility that he could help him and stated that he was an adult after Gohan said he needed one before kneeing the young boy in the stomach. Vegeta explained that he only hit him due to his pent-up aggression towards his father and raced away. Vegeta entered into the ocean as he smirked and struggled to find his final Dragon Ball.

Vegeta's broken rage

Vegeta emerges from the ocean in a wave of furry.

When he closed his eyes and it still did not appear before him, Vegeta thought about who could have taken it and quickly deduced it was Gohan since the latter's watch was probably a Dragon Ball locator. He started to scream as he exited the water and was heard by Gohan, Krillin, Freeza, Goku, King Yenma and Future Trunks. He found Krillin and stated that he was "here for it", explaining further that he wanted the latter to give him the Dragon Ball he believed he took so he could get his wish and being told by Nappa that the latter thought his rage broke. Vegeta then told the deceased Nappa to shut up and said he was the crazy one of the two, before being told by Krillin that he did not have the Dragon Ball and his eyes turning fully-red as blood started to come out with his anger boiling, though it ended soon afterward with Vegeta returning to normal with no memory of how he got there and asking where Nappa was.

Vegeta remembered killing him after being reminded by Krillin and then questioned where the enormous power was coming from, learning it was Gohan having his potential unlocked by Super Kami Guru. He decided to pay Gohan a "beating" and headed over to the site, where he was met by Nail. Vegeta told him that he could go die and after having an exchange with Nail became so impressed with him that he compared him to the villagers he murdered, which he revealed to Nail. Gohan then confronted him while expressing that he was as strong as Vegeta was during their fight on Earth, though Vegeta remarked he will still "weaker than the last three guys" he had killed and stated he was the strongest person on the planet apart from Freeza before Guru warned that five power levels were approaching Namek, Vegeta quickly realizing it was the Ginyu Force.[6]

Ginyu Force Edit

Vegeta reacted to the Ginyu Force landing with constant claims that the group would be killed and agonized over asking the group for help until Gohan asked him if he meant that and he confirmed. With Krillin suggesting the name "Team Three Star" for their new group, Vegeta denied that they needed a name and questioned him when he said it, stressing that the name made him want to kill Krillin even more despite acknowledging that he was only the second most annoying bald person he had worked with. Vegeta continued expressing his annoyance by the name when the group left Guru and went to retrieve the Dragon Ball from Bulma who Vegeta told that her hair looked stupid. While they flew together, Gohan asked Vegeta what they were in for and this latter asked him if he had watched several television series before saying Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters. Gohan confirmed he had seen the series which annoyed Vegeta.

Vegeta while confronted by Ginyu Force

The group landed and though close to the Dragon Balls, had a conflict of interest due to Krillin and Gohan not being sure that Vegeta was on their side, though the latter tried to stress that they had very little time to argue before Captain Ginyu greeted him and he did back prior to realizing that the Ginyu Force had arrived. Immediately afterward, Vegeta began to rant and confirmed that he had finished after being asked by Ginyu if he was done. The latter explained the group was there for the Dragon Balls and Krillin confirmed they were behind him, leading Vegeta to try saying that Krillin could not shut up when he was scared before being cut off by Krillin. After the latter omitted that he had a crush on a little Indian boy that he had believed was a girl, Vegeta told them to kill Krillin and stressed that he would not be missed.

Ginny inferred that everything had been accounted for and asked Vegeta if he had any last words to say to him before he left. Vegeta confirmed that he did and called on Ginyu to look at his men and then back to him, attempting to distract him before throwing a Dragon Ball which he had hoped would get away from the group, only for Burter to retrieve it despite Vegeta proclaiming that he put everything he had into that throw. Vegeta then called for Krillin to destroy the Dragon Ball he was holding, though it was removed from him by Guldo who wanted to get back at Vegeta for the prior times that he had made fun of him. Vegeta responded by throwing a dog treat at him. Ginyu began hosting Wheel of Death, leading Vegeta to question where the camera had come from and ask what "kind of sadistic retard watches this crap".

Vegeta called on the group to continue with spinning the wheel and battling him went to Recoome. After Krillin mentioned that he and Gohan were fighting Guldo, Vegeta introduced them to him and told the pair to have fun, giving them advice to throw dog treats at hims since he would find it humorous. Guldo was able to stop both Gohan and Krillin from attacking him, leading Vegeta to become involved and decapitate him by removing his head from his body. Vegeta followed it up by throwing a dog treat at his decapitated head and once Guldo said that he hated him, Vegeta remarked that he was aware before destroying the remaining portion of his body with a beam.[7]

The remainder of the Ginyu Force was not particularly concerned with Guldo's death and Recoome soon stepped forward to face Vegeta. He launched into a spiel against the prince complete with a cheering crowd and his own theme music (Hanagrmageddon, a remix of Doom's first level theme). Vegeta simply replied "wrestling's fake" (to the outrage of the audience) before demanding his own theme music, only to be disgusted when he got Dragonball GT's opening theme. He then proceeded to launch a huge energy blast at Recoome but was shocked when only his outfit was damaged. Mockingly informing Vegeta that he only sold merchandise, Recoome proceeded to brutally beat Vegeta while Jeice and Burter commentated. He was saved from Recoome's Recoome Eraser Gun by the intervention of Gohan and Krillin, but criticised as he believed he was already done for. When Krillin told him that he was a valuable member of Team Three Star, Vegeta found solace in the fact that Krillin would die with him. Vegeta then watched Goban and Krillin be nearly killed by Recoome until they were suddenly saved by Goku, who asked if they were friends now and responded to Vegeta's reply of "fuck off" with "the best". Goon then tossed him a sensu bean and advised him to chew it to prevent a beanstalk in his belly. Upon witnessing Goku fell Recoome in a single blow, Vegeta was shocked at his increased power and wondered if he had been able to become a Super Saiyan. After seeing Goku easily defeat Burter and send Jeice running, Vegeta was enraged to learn that his power boost had come from training in 100x Earth's gravity. When he heard Goku's intentions to spare Recoome and Burter, he quickly intervened and killed them himself, brushing off Goku's criticism of his un- "paragon" behaviour with the phrase, "renegade for life".

After Jeice left and the others began to talk to each other, Vegeta, though calling their "idiotic banter" charming, told the group that they were screwed, elaborating upon Goku's request by mentioning that Freeza had the Dragon Balls which he deemed as making them already deceased. Krillin refuted this, leading Vegeta to ask if he knew something he did not. After Krillin confirmed that he did along with "a lot of things actually", Vegeta gave him five seconds to rephrase his answer and started counting before Krillin told him that Freeza had not used the Dragon Balls since the sky had not become dark nor had a "giant dragon" emerged. Vegeta continued counting, only for Ginyu to arrive and greet him. Vegeta greeted him back but then realized who he had just spoken to, afterward expressing surprising that Ginyu had come to them instead of staying with Freeza to polish the latter's boots. Ginyu refuted his claim and in doing so, let out intel that Freeza was not at the ship and that the average power level of a Freeza soldier was 2,000, odds that led Vegeta to openly express interest. Goku ordered Krillin and Gohan to leave, leaving Vegeta and himself to fight Ginyu and Jeice. Though Goku told Vegeta they would have to join together to defeat the pair, Vegeta said in turn that he needed to use the restroom, elaborating that it was 100 miles away before flying away.[8]

Murdering Jeice and Ginyu Edit

Vegeta arrived at Freeza's ship, blasting away most of the minions and screaming "Weee!" as he descended into the ship, washing his face as he told himself to get his act together and calling Goku's training at 100 times gravity for "pussies" before stating that the only reason Goku was able to defeat the Ginyu Force was because he had loosened them up for him and speculated that they were buried somewhere around the base by Ginyu if it was anything like the jock strap incident. After overhearing Krillin talking to Gohan, he stated that he would have something to put back in the hole and watched as the pair started digging, intending to break Krillin's neck as they summoned the dragon and planning to yell "Team Three Star" as he did it before imaging it.

After Krillin voiced his intent to not wish back Yamcha, Vegeta added that he did not know who he was but felt that he sounded similar to Raditz. Vegeta then felt two power level as they started coming towards the ship, the two being Jeice and Ginyu in Goku's body after performing the Body Change technique. Vegeta confronted Jeice during the conflict and added during their battle that he had killed the six minions of Freeza had fought so far, asking if he wanted to be the seventh and asked Jeice if he could have another after being punched in the face.

With Jeice questioning why he had become so strong, Vegeta responded by giving him a manual on Saiyans. Jeice read the manual and in reading that their power increases every time they almost die, assumed he was "fucked", which prompting Vegeta to tell Jeice that he indeed was but also right "in the down under" before killing him and moving over to assault Ginyu in Goku's body, smashing him into the ground as he stated he would be killing both Ginyu and Goku at the same time, calling Goku by his birth name "Kakarrot and then calling the latter name as his real name before charging at Ginyu who attempted to swap bodies with him before Goku jumped in the way and regained his body.

Ginyu in his previous body was happy to not be trapped in one that was useless, leading Vegeta to state give him "a minute" as he started beating on Ginyu, attempting to turn the latter's body "into a corpse" before he attempted another body swap and was swapped with a frog that Goku had thrown into the way of the beam that Ginyu fired out of his mouth. Following the swap, Vegeta questioned what happened and with Gohan asking if it was over and they were all gone, Vegeta said they would be soon as he prepared to squash Ginyu, initially giving in to Goku's plea not to kill him before stepping on him anyway to earn his eight kill of a Freeza henchman.[9]

Being betrayed Edit

Vegeta took Goku, Krillin and Gohan to a healing chamber, which Goku was placed in. It was an older model, but the only one they could use as Vegeta blew up the newer one. After ordering Krillin and Gohan to strip, he revealed that he had armor for the pair. After Gohan suggested that he needed a nap, Vegeta tried to retort but concluded he was right and went to sleep while ordering Gohan to stay around as he wanted him to be in "bullet blocking distance." During his napping, Krillin hatched a plan to use the Dragon Balls without Vegeta's knowledge by not telling him they had acquired Dende, who spoke Porunga's language.

A betrayed Vegeta

Vegeta awoke and though initially believing that he had slept long since it was night outside, he quickly realized that the planet had never once in his six days of being there been night, leading him to realize the others were using the Dragon Balls and scream as he rushed over there. Vegeta initially made contact with Gohan who he asked if he was thwarting his plans and swore he would kill him after he confirmed they were, before grabbing Dende as he ordered him to grant him immortality.

Vegeta figured that he had nothing to lose once Krillin volunteered that Dende was the only one who could speak to the dragon. As Dende tried granting Vegeta immortality, the balls became like stone, leading Vegeta to question if they were supposed to do that, as Guru passed. Though Krillin and Dende exchanged words over the death, Vegeta argued that it did not matter since he was not immortal and started to say what Freeza was going to do before looking up and noticing him standing above them.[10]

Fight with Freeza Edit

Vegeta revealed to Freeza that he had learned of his ability to transform from Guldo, reasoning his persistence in goading the alien being his claim that he become a Super Saiyan. After Krillin was seriously injured from an impalement by Freeza, Gohan attacked him in a rage that left him on the ground. Vegeta asked him how being attacked by Gohan felt and called for him to pick himself up and take on a real Saiyan, referring to himself, though backing off as Freeza actually stood up. Freeza then went to play "babysitter" to Gohan and started to crush his skull with his foot, asking Vegeta if the child's pain made him angry. Vegeta denied this and called Gohan a "smartass", reasoning that Freeza was only doing it because he got off on it.

Freeza engages Vegeta

The latter had his tail removed by Krillin's attack and as he claimed immortality while dashing away, Vegeta questioned how he was able to get up and expressed his intent to murder Krillin if his theory that he used the wish for immortality on himself before realizing that he could not kill him since the wish made him invulnerable to death. Krillin then returned and learned from Dende that he was only healed and could have died, which Vegeta added to by stating that he would not have received a power boost from nearly being killed like him and Gohan. Freeza returned and Vegeta called on the group to dust him, joining Krillin and Gohan in firing blasts at him before stopping as Krillin asked if they had killed him even though they could still sense his energy, reasoning that he was an optimist before Vegeta called him an idiot. After Freeza said the group would die, Gohan rushed towards him with the intent to die similarly to his mentor Piccolo, though Vegeta and Krillin tried to stop him before Piccolo arrived and began fighting Freeza.[11]

During Piccolo's fight against Freeza, Vegeta commented that something was wrong about the Namekian was not able to Nappa yet being able to take on Freeza, in his second form no less. Vegeta told Gohan of his theories: either he was hit so hard by Freeza that he had entered a delusional coma or power levels were bullshit. Gohan and Krillin were both impressed by Piccolo's strength in fighting Freeza, the latter commenting that they might even win, Vegeta replying somewhat disinterested that was great before flying off, being noticed by Freeza while doing so. Vegeta thought to himself that all he would need to do was find one of the ships of the deceased members of the Ginyu Force and leave the planet, making plans to go to Kanassa since no one ever went to it following the repopulation of its species. Freeza then caught up with him and upon being asked where he was going, Vegeta did not disclose the exact location and was vague until Freeza knocked him into what he called a mountain.

Freeza then seemed to have gained the upper hand on Piccolo by dealing him a blow that landed him into a mountain as well, leading Vegeta to remark that Piccolo being on par with Freeza did not last very long. While Piccolo continued his fight with Freeza, Vegeta approached Krillin with a proposal that the latter almost kill him. When asked by Krillin if there were any repercussions for going through with his orders, Vegeta stated that he would not punch him. Krillin then shot him in the chest, Vegeta afterward approaching Dende to heal him. However, the latter did not comply since he knew of Vegeta killing members of his race beforehand. Vegeta requested that he "not be that guy right now" but Dende insisted he would be and went to heal Piccolo instead. Vegeta laid on the ground dying as he bled out until Dende saw the transforming Freeza and realized his strength would take that of the Z-Fighters together, leading him to heal Vegeta. Now fully-healed, the latter asked what was stopping him from killing him before Dende was killed by Freeza.[12]

Death Edit

Following Freeza's killing of Dende, which Vegeta commented on by screaming "Healer down!" and his claim that he had sparred him having to see what he was going to do to them, Vegeta told him that the joke was on him as he hated Krillin who he referred to as "the bald one". Freeza fired a shot at Gohan, who Vegeta saved by pushing him down and then stated he was just going to stand there and "keep being awesome", being ignored by Piccolo and Gohan as the pair voiced despair and hopelessness. Vegeta then voiced his intent to fight Freeza, warning the others to stand back so they would not get hit by his penis when he turned around and responding to Freeza's mocking of him by stating that he could see the peak of his power whereas he had only began to tap into his.

Vegeta bested by Freeza

Vegeta further stated that he had finally realized the legend and then claimed he was finally a Super Saiyan, annoying Freeza who claimed it was a legend and warned that he would be crying "like a little bitch", prompting Vegeta to claim he was just jealous of his "Super Saiyan swagger" before attacking Freeza who just continued to dodge his attacks, convincing Vegeta that he had Freeza "on the ropes" since all he could do was this. Freeza thought about all of the deaths of his soldiers and Ginyu digging holes during the jock strap incident, leading him to question Vegeta on how good he was at digging holes apart from the one he had dug for himself leading Vegeta to order him not to mock him as he fired a beam which Freeza dodged, prompting Vegeta to fire more, failing to hit him as he aimed for where he was instead of where he was going to be. Freeza then mocked Vegeta, leading him to proclaim that he was going to blow him up as he launched himself into the air before firing what he called his "Super Saiyan wrath", which Freeza deflected. Vegeta began to cry after his attack was deflected, though he denied this before being punched by Freeza and knocked into a lake where a crab tried to tell him how he could defeat Freeza but was eaten by the latter as Freeza began hitting him, at the same time asking why he was hitting himself, which Vegeta responded to afterward by stating that Freeza was the one hitting him.

Vegeta killed by Freeza.

Vegeta lost blood from continued "kidney punches" from Freeza, who told him that it was time to send him crying home to his mother, though Vegeta reminded him that his mother was dead which Freeza was already aware of. Goku then arrived, proclaiming he was insane from Earth, which Vegeta corrected to Freeza as him meaning that he was a Saiyan. After Freeza expressed impression with Vegeta making a friend, the latter told the pair that he hated them both. Goku unintentionally mocked Freeza for his appearance and easily dismissed his attacks by deflecting them, leading the latter to ask Vegeta to explain, prompting him to laugh and begin stating that Goku had "risen above and become a legend" which he clarified as the one Freeza feared and tried to say Super Saiyan prior to being shot in the chest.[13]

After Goku asked Vegeta if he was alright, the latter stated that he had a hole in his chest and questioned Goku on why he did not block the blast from hitting him. Goku explained that he thought Vegeta could handle it, though the latter yelled that this was not the case. Vegeta coughed up blood after Freeza swore that he had hit a lung and was questioning why he was still talking. Vegeta told Goku that were he to ever listen to anything he had to say, then that would be the time and mentioned that his entire race had been enslaved by Freeza, who Goku assumed was the reason for why Vegeta was evil. Vegeta had cut him off and assumed he meant that he was the reason why he was dying which he confirmed, though denied that he would be any better if Freeza had not enslaved his race. Vegeta even claimed that if the situation were reverse, Goku would be deceased and he would be laughing, which he did before saying that it hurt to laugh once he felt pain. Vegeta told Goku that he was telling him what he had because he was the Saiyans' last hope and died in realizing that Goku was the last remaining Saiyan. He was buried by Goku, who was dominated by Freeza in battle.

Vegeta appears to Goku

After his death, Vegeta met King Yemma and was instructed by the latter to remove his clothes after Yemma claimed that one did not wear their clothes when they passed away. Shortly afterward, Vegeta appeared before Goku while he was losing the fight and told him that Freeza was unlike any opponent he had ever faced as well as mentioning that he was failing the Saiyans in losing, though Goku questioned why he was not wearing his clothes. Vegeta insulted him and mentioned that one did not wear their clothing in passing away, though Goku mentioned he had when he died, leading Vegeta to realize that he had been lied to by Yemma. Vegeta told Goku that he had the power to defeat Freeza based on him being a Saiyan and with Goku being confused, Vegeta told him to use the Kaio-ken. Goku thanked Vegeta for aiding him, leading Vegeta to dismiss him and say that he was going to go get his clothes back.[14]

Resurrection Edit

Vegeta brought back to life

Vegeta resurrected.

Vegeta was brought back to life by the wish of the Dragon Balls on Earth, which allowed for everyone killed by Freeza to be resurrected. Having been buried by Goku, Vegeta emerged from the ground and swore that he would walk the Earth when there was no more room in Hell though he quickly questioned where he was, calling the battle-worn Namek "other Hell". Confused and assuming he was still dead, he was relieved to have his clothes back on and called it a start, then questioning if he was alive, punching himself and confirming he was by his pain, being happy as he threw up blood.

Vegeta then began looking for a way to leave the planet, firmly believing that one of the Ginyu Force's ships was around there somewhere and noticing Super Saiyan Goku and Freeza fighting, which he planned on avoiding. Seeing Porunga, he rushed towards him and planned on attacking Freeza, asking him if he was ready to part as he prepared to attack before being teleported off the planet along with everyone else bar Goku and Freeza. When the Namekians reported not being able to find some of their people while on Earth, Vegeta went up to them, revealing himself as their killer and the reason for them not being alive since only those killed by Freeza and his men were brought back. Vegeta then watched as Guru was slaughtered by the Namekians.

Vegeta used one of the spaceships at Capsule Corporation to go into space. Shortly after leaving the planet, he was contacted by Nappa, who revealed he had been resurrected by the Dragon Balls from having been killed by Vegeta while he was serving under Freeza, the wish being for all those killed by Freeza or his men to be brought back to life after Vegeta questioned what was going on. Nappa revealed he had began working as a producer, leading Vegeta to mockingly ask if Hollywood was making a live-adaptation of Mr. Clean and after being hung up on by him, quietly exclaimed, "Goddammit Nappa."[15]
