The 10 Best Vegeta Quotes In Dragon Ball

Vegeta is one of Dragon Ball’s most complicated characters. Fans have watched him progress from a major villain, to an antihero, and finally to a bonafide good guy and dedicated family man in Dragon Ball Super. Over time, we’ve gotten glimpses of his internal evolution not just through his actions, but also through his words Below are just ten of the most memorable quotes that speak to who Vegeta is as the “Prince of all Saiyans.”

“SERVANT WOMAN! BRING ME A DRYING CLOTH AT ONCE!”

After Frieza was defeated, Vegeta found himself with nowhere to go. It was Bulma who welcomed him into her home, despite all the vile things he’d done before then, and it didn’t take Vegeta long to abuse her kindness. At the time, it was unfathomable that a relationship was brewing between them, since Vegeta regarded her as a lowly servant. One thing’s for certain, he wouldn’t dare talk to her like this now.

“I’LL EAT YOUR WHOLE RACE!”

During a family vacation with Trunks and Bulma in Dragon Ball Super, Bulma pointed out that he had changed after fighting Buu, and Vegeta nearly gave himself the goal of proving her, and everyone else, completely wrong. When presented with a whole octopus for dinner, Vegeta threatened to eat its “whole race”. Only Vegeta could make something as trivial as eating seafood about genocide. It seems like that planet-destroying maniac that he used to be all those years ago is still somewhere deep inside of him.

“WELCOME TO THE END OF YOUR LIFE, AND I PROMISE, IT’S GOING TO HURT.”

Though outwardly intimidating, Babidi’s minion Pui Pui couldn’t even land a single hit on Vegeta, who hadn’t even relied on a transformation to defeat him. Unimpressed by Pui Pui’s speed and agility, Vegeta hurled this threatening insult at the alien warrior before a single punch was thrown. Thank goodness he was able to back it up! When Vegeta talks big to an opponent, usually he’s the one who ends up with his face in the dirt. Poor Pui Pui; he would’ve been better off just fighting Gohan.

“WHO’S FACE IS UGLY?”

After surviving a Spirit Bomb that nearly propelled him into Earth’s orbit, Vegeta landed back to the canyon in tatters. Thinking that he was dead, Krillin mentioned that they wouldn’t have to “look at his ugly face anymore”, to which Vegeta promptly responded with a firm, “who’s face is ugly?” This left Krillin, Gohan, Goku, Yajirobe, and even King Kai speechless. Not only was this a clever, well-timed comeback, but it also showed us just how resilient a Saiyan elite was, since he still had enough sense to deliver a retort even on the verge of death.

“I DO A LOT OF PUSH-UPS AND SIT-UPS, AND I DRINK PLENTY OF JUICE.”

After spending a year in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Vegeta was more than enough for Semi-Perfect Cell. When Cell asked Vegeta just how he’d gotten so strong, Vegeta responded with an answer so silly that we would’ve thought it was straight out of One Punch Man. It seems he wasn’t only just working on his fighting technique. Clearly, he’d been training his comedic delivery as well.

“I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT MY CELLS ARE IN YOUR BODY. HOW COULD YOU HAVE TURNED OUT SO UGLY?”

Sticking with some of Vegeta’s most infamous Cell disses, the Saiyan prince decided to take a jab at the Bio-Android’s looks. Though it was meant to be a joke to further aggravate Cell, this quote actually brought up a valid point! If Cell was composed of the organic matter of all these different fighters, why did he look nothing like any of them? Sure, he inherited Piccolo’s green skin, but other than that, he looks nothing like any of our handsome heroes

“LET ME ASK YOU, DOES A MACHINE LIKE YOURSELF EVER EXPERIENCE FEAR?”

Vegeta delivered this iconic line right before unveiling his Super Saiyan powers to the world. This quote showed us just how confident he was in his own abilities despite having just attained the Super Saiyan transformation. Vegeta quickly got the answer to his own question after Android 19 could only stare in terror after his arms were ripped from their sockets and he was blown to bits.

“IS IT SLAVERY WHEN YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT?”

Despite rocking the forehead tattoo and receiving the boost in power that came with joining Babidi’s ranks, Vegeta was still wholly in control of his actions, acting on his own selfish desires to fight Goku after years of waiting. Goku asked Vegeta why he’d allow himself to become Babidi’s slave, to which Vegeta responded by killing even more World Tournament spectators and delivering this iconic line. At the end of the day, Vegeta did get that rematch that he wanted all along, and in all honestly, we’re sure glad that he did.

“YOU SAY I’M ARROGANT, I SAY DAMN RIGHT. THAT’S PRIDE. PRIDE IN THE SAIYAN I AM.”

It’s hard to watch Super and believe that Vegeta actually used to be one of the most malicious men in the galaxy. During the Tournament of Power, Vegeta’s identity was put to the test; after Goku had awakened the powers of Ultra Instinct, Vegeta tried his hardest to follow in Goku’s footsteps, going as far as to take on Jiren alone despite knowing that the Universe 11 warrior could easily toss him aside like trash. Jiren called him out for this, telling him that his technique was impure due to his arrogance. This is one thing that’s never changed over Vegeta’s development, and of course, has everything to do with his royal upbringing. Unlike Goku, who’s had a complicated relationship with his Saiyan heritage, Vegeta fully embraces it. Instead of seeing his Saiyan pride as a weakness, Vegeta sees it as an affirmation, which is exactly what got him this far in the first place.

“IT’S OVER 9000!”

“It’s over 9000” is a line which almost anyone can instantly recognize. Vegeta’s look of disbelief when he measures Goku’s power is enough to give you the laughs. Throughout the entire saga, the price stood watching with a smirk on his face but things quickly changed when Goku returned from King Kais Planet. The line became a meme sensation even before memes existed.
