Vegito is one of Dragon Ball’s most beloved characters. The merger between Goku and Vegeta couldn’t be anything else than a great reason for the fans to wait eagerly for much more tremendous power and action in the game. And of course, plenty of approximations have been made by the fans regarding what power level Vegito has, and all the assumptions are proposing numbers way over 9000. Numbers so big that they could be written only with powers.
Back in Dragon Ball Super, fans were upset by the fact that Vegito appeared only for several minutes in the whole anime. He put on a great fight against merged Zamasu, the antagonist deity who wanted to eradicate humans. Luckily for Dragon Ball fans, this won’t be the case in the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot – Vegito will be available as a playable character, which means that you can use him against any other character. This news has been brought to the public by the Weekly Jump magazine.
Vegito or Gogeta?
Some fans have been speculating about which version of the fusion between Goku and Vegeta should we see in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Gogeta appears when the two sayians are performing the fusion dance, while Vegito comes to life after the warriors put on the magic earrings. It’s hard to say for sure which one of the two characters is the strongest. Vegito should be more powerful than Gogeta since the earrings multiply the sum of the powers of Goku and Vegeta several times. Both Vegito and Gogeta achieved the Super Sayian Blue form – Vegito in the Dragon Ball Super anime, and Gogeta in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie from 2018.
Therefore, the conclusion is that most likely Vegito instead of Gogeta in the upcoming game is the best choice. The main question is: will he be able to achieve Super Sayian Blue form or only the standard Super Sayian form? Since the title of the game has the “Z” in it, we can expect more the second option. This would be great news for many hardcore Dragon Ball fans who didn’t like Super and said many times that it’s a disgrace for the Dragon Ball series.
Will Vegito have any worthy opponent?
Judging from the anime, Vegito is outrageously strong and very few opponents could be any sort of match against him. The fusion between Goku and Vegeta would wipe the floor with Gohan, Trunks, Tien, Yamcha, and even with the villains. From the Z anime, not even Super Buu was able to give Vegito a decent fight and had to catch him off guard to land him a decisive blow. This is one of Vegito’s weaknesses: he’s way too cocky, and that can cost him sometimes. Only characters from the Super anime could be worthy of fighting Vegito, like Jiren or Merged Zamasu. But most likely, they won’t be included in the Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot game. However, there are some dreadful attacks that could defeat Vegito: the Spirit Bomb, the Evil Containment Wave, or perhaps just kicking him in the “nuts” by Krilin. However, for a more exciting game, it’s hard to believe that the developers will respect the power scaling from the anime. Therefore, most likely, you’ll be able to beat Vegito with Yamcha if you try hard enough, regardless of how funny that would be for most of the fans.
Also, a variety of other playable characters have been announced: Majin Vegeta, base Vegeta, kid Gohan, adult Gohan, Yamcha, Piccolo, Goku, Tien, and others. Kid Buu will most likely be the final boss in the story mode.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is set to arrive on January 17, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
