In Dragon Ball Z chapter #63, Vegeta proves that he has grown tremendously as a character that reflects his current position in Dragon Ball Super.
It’s easy to consider that vegetarian‘S Super Saiyan convert in seven dragon pearls (which he achieves through a flashback) is his greatest strength. But there are techniques that the Saiyan Prince learned before coming to Namek, which is more important because of how they effectively represent the incredible growth for him as a character and even play a role. The role is a major harbinger of the later personal milestones he achieves later in Dragon Ball Super.
In Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball Z chapter #63, Vegeta reveals to Dodoria that he can master chi detection (and concealment) because he clearly realizes that there are more important things than caring. to brute force as he was. in his younger days. This is why, Vegeta reasoned, thugs like Frieza and Dodoria didn’t achieve such abilities and had to rely on scouts because raw strength was all they were worried about.
Vegeta realizes that there’s more to fighting than strength
At the time, this comment had a certain importance because Vegeta relied on brute force when he first faced Goku. He even uses an attack capable of destroying an entire planet if Goku fails to tame it. But Vegeta’s comment may surprise many as it seems to contradict his later actions and obsessions. It’s easy to think that Vegeta’s comment to Dodoria was quietly reworded for the sake of the story. But there is an explanation. It actually works even taking the back arcs into account because of one variable that makes things difficult for him: Goku.
When Goku first achieves Super Saiyan and defeats Frieza, Vegeta is obsessed with surpassing Goku. Around this time, Vegeta became picky about the techniques he learned. A famous example includes Goku’s Instant Transmission, a move Vegeta calls a cheap trick. This perception then grows to the point where he confesses that he won’t learn such techniques because they belong to Goku, which is also why Vegeta refuses to master Goku’s Super Instinct. It is therefore fitting that Vegeta’s own version of Super Instinct known as the Sublime Self would represent who he is as a warrior. He has full control over the infinite power of Ultra Instinct and the more power he is granted, the hotter his “battle soul”. All of this shows that Vegeta is still obsessed with brute force, which Vegeta has stated he had years ago in Dragon Ball Z.
Goku makes Vegeta retreat in Dragon Ball Z
But Vegeta would probably have the same opinion he told Dodoria without Goku. When Vegeta gave up his Saiyan pride in Dragon Ball Super, not only did he learn his own living room trick called Mental Forced Fission, but he even mastered Instant Transmission . In fact, Vegeta is currently learning a move that is more like Super Instinct, which requires one’s body and mind to relax. That is not brute force. Vegeta has actually given up on relying solely on this in DBZ and will continue this way for the rest of the series if Goku doesn’t defeat him by getting the Super Saiyan first. Vegeta is just slowly starting to think like before, with a clearer mind and not obsessed with surpassing Goku. It’s ironic that Vegeta has made this incredible step forward so long in Dragon Ball Z. What’s even more remarkable, however, is that vegetarian was able to go back in the decades since Goku left Super Saiyan IN seven dragon pearls.
