Best Motivational Vegeta Quotes

“Heh he he he he he he he. Exactly. Those Dragon Balls caught my interest. Just think of the possibilities Nappa. If we can get our hands on those seven Dragon Balls, then we can wish for anything we want. Anything at all. Wouldn’t you say that’s worth making a little trip?” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“I prefer to be the captain of my own ship.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“Amazing. How do you do it, Kakarot? You’ve always been like this, ever since the day I first met you, always ready to meet the next challenge, even if it’s bigger than you are. It was the same on Namek. You had improved so much that it made Recoome look like he was standing still! Your power had increased so dramatically since our battle on Earth that I thought you had done it. I thought… that you had become… a Super Saiyan! It tore me apart! How could a low class soldier accomplish so easily what I, I had struggled my whole life to achieve? After three millenia it has finally happened! A new Super Saiyan has emerged! And somehow, I have become this pompous witness! Then, at last, it happened. I too, transformed. After living every moment of every day for the singular purpose of surpassing you, I finally became a Super Saiyan myself. The prince had reclaimed his throne and fulfilled his destiny! But no matter how strong I became, your power still exceeded mine. At first I thought it was your loved ones, that it was your instinct to protect them that spurred you on, and pushed you beyond your limits. But then I found myself with a family of my own. And my power didn’t increase at all… I used to fight for the sheer pleasure of it, for the thrill of the hunt! Oh, I had the strength unmeasurable. I spared no one. And yet, you showed mercy to everyone, even your fiercest enemies… even me! Yet you never fought to kill, or for revenge, only to test your limits, and to push yourself beyond them, to become the strongest you could possibly be. How can a Saiyan fight like that and at the same time be so gentle that he wouldn’t hurt a fly? Oh, it makes me angry just thinking about it! But, perhaps it is my anger that has made me blind to the truth for so long. I see it now, this day has made it all too clear. You’re better than me, Kakarot. You are the best.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“Like I care if you hate me. I quit. I’m free now. To think I was nice to you all those years…makes me wanna puke.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“And I’m just warming up, you clown. What you just witnessed was only the beginning of my power. If you had one of your stupid scouters here, you’d realize my true potential and you’d run like the coward you really are. No matter. A Saiyan loves a good fight. And you’ll discover my powers soon enough. So let’s stop talking and cut to the chase. This time, you’re going down. What’s the matter? Is your brain another one of your weak and underused muscles.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“He shouldn’t have been so soft, should he? Which leads me to the question of what to do with his son. Destroy him now so he doesn’t destroy me someday? Don’t sweat it, kiddo. You’re the only Saiyan left besides me. That makes you a very important young man. We’re the last survivors of an ancient race. Besides, I need someone like you at my side to polish my boots and call me lord Vegeta! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“You let me go. I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was the act of a sentimental fool. But later I realized that being spared by you was worse than dying, Kakarot. Because now, I couldn’t get you out of my mind! I had to live with you every second of the day. That one act challenged everything I’d ever believed in. Everything that I’d every known. You were unraveling my reality from the inside out.” (in Dragon Ball GT)

“I thought I believed…yes. But you were right Kakarot. Suddenly, I was up against insurmountable odds. Death was imminent, but I didn’t care about myself. I could only think of my son. I decided to shed my mortal coil in attack that would rid the Earth of that monster for good, so that my son could live on.” (in Dragon Ball GT)

“How could I let this happen to my son? He has sacrificed everything for me! And I have done nothing but ignore him! No! I won’t give up on him! There is still time to change things! Cell has crossed me for the last time! He has tricked me in battle, mocked my Saiyan ancestry, but this…this time he’s gone too far…he will pay the ultimate price…for what he has done to my son!” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“There’s no such thing as fair or unfair in battle. There is only victory or in your case, defeat.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

Best Philosophical Vegeta Quotes

“You think he’s the most powerful being in the universe, and maybe he is. But just like you, he does not have true pride! I don’t expect you to understand. Not you Kakarot! I sent myself into a cold oblivion and I did it on a lie! The Saiyan prince will not fall again!” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“You’re all so foolish to assume Kakarot would abandon such a good fight, because the blood of a Saiyan flows too strongly in his veins. And now, as that idiot martyr is becoming a Super Saiyan, his hunger for battle is even greater! Nothing will stop Frieza and Kakarot from fighting, that is, until Namek explodes and they both go out with a bang! Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“Everything else is just a delusion for the weak! There’s only one certainty in life. A strong man stands above and conquers all. I know how strong Frieza is. There’s no way I can beat him now. But wait and see, as the last of the Saiyans, we have flowing through our veins the blood of a warrior race. The more we fight, the more powerful we become. And with each fight, I’ll get stronger and stronger…grrr…and one day, I’ll be strong enough to beat Frieza…and I will rule the universe…exactly as I was meant to.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“He has beaten me completely. First by his own actions and then through his son’s. And what has he left for me here? How? How could you die like that? How, Kakarot? I’ll never have the chance…to prove my strength against you. You died without fear. What does that make of me? I am no warrior. And I will never fight again.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“Being a hero is highly overrated.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“A tough guy like you should be able to face the truth.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“I require nothing more than the essentials. This is not a vacation. This is work.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“Don’t tell me you’re satisfied swatting flies like him. Heh. Guess a guy like you needs any victory he can get. From the way you’ve been carrying on, I was expecting a true challenge. If that’s your idea of perfect, I might as well go home.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“I begged you to forget about your feelings. I thought they would get you killed. But it was your feelings that helped you transform. It was the rage you felt when Frieza hurt your loved ones that pushed you over the top.” (in Dragon Ball Z)

“The greatest battle that was ever waged was taking place…and I was reduced to being its witness. Is that my lot in life? To bear witness to your strength? To be the only one strong enough to be able to fathom the depth of your might? Hah. I refuse to play that role.” (in Dragon Ball Z)
