Everyone’s saying that this scene destroyed Vegeta’s badass Reputation

I disagree

Vegeta was faced with an opponent he knew he had no chance of beating. So, rather than fight and risk getting his family hurt or the planet destroyed, he puts his pride aside and appeases Bills, referring to him as Bills-Sama (An honorific used to refer to someone above oneself, or that one has great respect for.)

Later, when Bills decides, due to the Itch of being shot, to destroy the planet, Vegeta fucking Throws his pride away completely. Not even setting it aside. He  just completely forgets it for one moment to calm Bills Down.

He sacrifices the one thing he’s held above all else to protect his friends, his family, and the planet he’s come to call home

And that, my friends, is Badass.
