Vegeta Facts

Up until his tail was cut off, Vegeta could turn into a gigantic monkey-like creature called an Ōzaru (大猿?, lit. “Great Ape”) by looking at a full moon, an ability common of all Saiyans with tails. Vegeta has the ability to create and enhance attacks with the use of chi. He also has the ability to use Bukū-jutsu (舞空術?, lit: “Air Dancing Technique”), which enables him to fly.[3] Constant training and his Saiyan heritage have given him vast superhuman strengthdurabilityspeed and reflexes.[3]

Vegeta is known to give names for his various energy attacks. In his early appearance, Vegeta is seen to use attacks similar to several of the protagonists of the series, such as aKi Disk Razor (気円斬 Kienzan?), a two fingered laser-like disk capable of cutting through solid objects, and a ki wave similar to Goku’s Kamehameha. One of his better known attacks is the Galick Gun (ギャリック砲 Gyarikku Hō?), although he uses it only once in the series proper; during his battle against Goku in an attempt to destroy the Earth.[3] He later develops the Big Bang Attack (ビッグ・バン・アタック Biggu Ban Atakku?) and the Final Flash (ファイナルフラッシュ Fainaru Furasshu?) techniques, which are much more powerful than his older energy attacks. Vegeta’s most commonly used tactics in the series is when he bombards an opponent with an array of small ki blasts. He is not known to have an official name for this attack, but it is usually called Rapid-Fire Energy Balls (連続エネルギー弾 Renzoku Enerugī Dan?). In Dragon Ball GT, Vegeta displays a powerful new attack, entitling it the Final Shine Attack (ファイナルシャインアタック Fainaru Shain Atakku?), where he uses his left hand to fire off a massive beam of green ki that widens with distance. Because of his immense strength and power, Vegeta, along with few other characters from the Dragon Ball franchise, can destroy entire planets with single attacks if he intends to.

Vegeta also possesses several transformations that greatly enhance his abilities to varying degrees. He gains the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan and, through training, can further transform into advanced states of Super Saiyan as the series continues.[4][5][6] Vegeta can also fuse with Goku and create a warrior who has the combined power and skills of both. One method is by using the Potara Earrings presented to Goku by the Old Kaiō-shin. This results in a ‘potara fusion’ creating Vegito (ベジット Bejitto?, “Vegerot” in Viz Media‘s manga translation). The other method, appearing only in the anime, is by performing the ‘Metamorese Fusion Dance’, which creates Gogeta (ゴジータ Gojīta?).
