"Indeed, I am arrogant. But to me, that's precisely what my pride as a Saiya-jin is!"
Vegeta, more specifically Vegeta IV, recognized as Prince Vegeta is the prince of the fallen Saiya-jin race and one of the major characters of the Dragon Ball series.
Regal, egotistical, and full of pride, Vegeta was once a ruthless, cold-blooded warrior and outright killer, but later abandons his role in the Frieza Force, instead opting to remain and live on Earth. His character evolves from villain, to anti-hero, then to hero through the course of the series, repeatedly fighting alongside the universe's most powerful warriors in order to protect his new home and surpass Goku in power.
