How Vegeta Achieved the Super Saiyan God Transformation

Without a doubt, Vegeta is one of the most interesting characters in the history of animes. Driven by an obsessive and permanent thirst for power and competition, Vegeta was for many years in the shadow of Goku. The two Saiyans are long time rivals and two completely different characters.

Goku managed to achieve the Super Saiyan God form at the beginning of the Dragon Ball Super anime, going beyond any expectation for what the others believed to be the maximum power for a fighter. He did it in the fight against the God of Destruction Beerus while achieving the ultimate form at that time with the tremendous help of his friends, including Vegeta. A lot of time had passed since then, as Goku and Vegeta both became a lot stronger together and close in power levels. But the question remained: how did Vegeta manage to obtain the godly powers when Goku could only do it with the help of others?

When did Vegeta use the Super Saiyan God form?

For a long time, Dragon Ball fans thought that Vegeta went directly from Super Saiyan 2 form to Super Saiyan Blue. The Saiyan Prince was never seen going Super Saiyan 3 as Goku, even though his power is far stronger while using Super Saiyan Blue. But it turned out that Vegeta did use the first godly form, the Super Saiyan God, during his fight against Broly in the 2018 movie.

The Broly movie was cannon, so we can consider it fully part of the Dragon Ball series. Vegeta shocked everyone by transforming into a Super Saiyan God and battling Broly, the forever angry Saiyan. As Broly’s power increased, Vegeta had to pull out different aces from his sleeve, but the moment of the transformation is a crucial part of the Dragon Ball franchise.

Vegeta became a Super Saiyan God on his own

Well, he indeed has been under intense training sessions with Whis, but we can still consider it to be ‘on his own’ considering that normally, a Super Saiyan God form can be achieved with the help of several Super Saiyans. There is no other explanation for Vegeta achieving the form, although it’s a huge power gap there that seems unexplainable. Actually, we have to admit that there is no such thing as an unexplainable power gap in Dragon Ball Super. The show is known for weird power scaling.

Vegeta, on the other hand, is known for his ground-shaking ambition to become as strong as he can. Goku motivates him a lot in this direction, as the Saiyan Prince himself said it several times. Vegeta became a Super Saiyan God without tremendous help as Goku did.

Did Vegeta deserve to become a Super Saiyan God?

If we take a look at Vegeta’s past, he did plenty of awful things like conquering planets, killing people, and even intending to destroy the Earth along with everybody living on it. Judging by this background, most would say that Vegeta didn’t deserve so much attention and respect from the writers of Dragon Ball. It’s true that the Saiyan Prince is still paying for his sins by always being much less important than Goku in Super, but Vegeta is still a very important character.

Furthermore, Vegeta did plenty of wonderful things after his evil past: he made himself a family alongside Bulma and Trunks, he fought for the sake of both the Earth and the Universe, and last but not least: he sacrificed himself for the sake of humanity. Vegeta clearly became a good guy, even though he’s not always willing to express it.

The conclusion is obvious: Vegeta became a Super Saiyan God by training with Whis. …or maybe somebody just slapped Bulma again.
