‘Dragon Ball Super’ Just Made The Best Vegeta Throwback!
Warning! Spoilers for Episode 126 of Dragon Ball Super below!
Vegeta has had a great string of episodes in Dragon Ball Super‘s Tournament of Power, as many of the Universal Survival arc’s best moments come from Vegeta’s involvement. It’s been especially great at showing his character growth as well.
This becomes especially true when the series brings back a major moment of growth for Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z, his sacrificing himself in order to defeat Majin Buu. That was one epic moment, I must say. That was the moment when Vegeta started caring about others. About how there are now people who are too precious for him to lose. He can sacrifice himself but cannot let them die.
As the newly crowned God of Destruction Toppo proves himself to be a challenge, especially after he splits up Goku and Vegeta and fights Vegeta specifically. As Toppo aims to destroy the arena in order to eliminate Vegeta (after Vegeta gets the better of him), Vegeta decides to counter his with his own power.
Hearing about how Toppo’s new transformation came about when he discarded everything important to him, Vegeta flashes back to everything he loves like Bulma, Trunks, Bulla, and how important Universe 6’s Cabba is to him. Hating the idea of casting aside those things angers his pride, and he vows to launch an attack Toppo would not be able to destroy.
Vegeta then builds up an attack that Piccolo immediately recognizes. It’s the attack Majin Vegeta used to temporarily defeat Majin Buu, but killed himself in the process. After a flashback to this emotional scene (where Vegeta used the attack for the very same reason he does in the Super episode), Vegeta is able to overwhelm Toppo, deflect his godly destruction power, and eliminate him from the Tournament.
But unlike the first time he used the attack, Vegeta is still standing. Even with the power of Super Saiyan Blue and beyond, Vegeta’s now become strong enough to withstand the attack that killed him years before. It’s really great that he didn’t die like the last time. Piccolo was really worried as he saw Vegeta die himself the last time.
Well, Vegeta fans rejoice. The all mighty prince of all saiyans will not lose to anyone. HE will be the one to defeat Jiren, I can say it right now! I am rooting for him so badly. Well I wouldn’t mind if a fusion occurs as well but I don’t want Goku to take all the glory himself. Vegeta needs his share of respect as well now! Go Vegeta!
