I did one for the Son family as well [x] As i said in that one, this is based on the idea that if Hollywood were to remake a live-action DB flick and give it some justice, these are the actors I think would come close to being a good match to the character.
Tim Man as Vegeta- I had to borrow someone else’s idea for Vegeta, because all of my other previous choices didn’t really convince me until I saw this guy. At 5′5′’, Man is about the right height to play Vegeta, and has a similar body-type. Man has been featured in movies such as Onk Bak 2 andNinja: Shadow of a Tear. Though he is a stuntman, he has played minor roles as an actor and has the potential to become a main lead like others have before him . Scott Adkins was my other pick for Vegeta, but he’s a bit taller than what Vegeta should be lol.
Rinko Kikuchi as Bulma Briefs- Besides being beautiful, those who have seen Pacific Rim know Kikuchi is adept in playing a character who is intelligent and strong-willed…
Booboo Stewart as Future Trunks- He played Warpath in X-Men: Days of Future Past, has done stunt-work, and is, well, hot af. Oh, and he looks great with long hair. Super important.
(I didn’t do Bulla/Bra because she’d be too young or nonexistent during DBZ/S. and I didn’t do Mai because she isn’t Trunks’s wife (though it is implied she later will be). Also, I’m simply not a fan of the pair.)
Inspired from the 2nd ep of DBS. (∩˃o˂∩)♡ So I made this quickie. Another family vacation with Bra! Yep, I see Vegeta being super affectionate towards his daughter even on a family vacation. (´,,•ω•,,)♡
Vegeta hears Black murdered his wife. Gets mad. Great family man, etc.
Goku hears Black murdered his wife and son. Goku flies into a rage he hasn’t been in since he fought Freeza the first time. “lol too late Toriyama Goku doesn’t care about his family, factual”
Vegeta gets mad and it’s super duper proof he loves Bulma. Goku gets enraged perhaps more so than we’ve ever seen before, and people still refuse to accept he cares about his family.
How about make him relevant again…. Or make him stronger….. Or both
I would take Filler Episodes too, but with good old badass Piccolo……
I love uncle Piccolo. I love how he treats Pan…. But why can’t he be strong AND a family man, like Vegeta? Super is always about Saiyans….. SAIYANS, SAIYANS, SAIYANS! Its really pissing me off.
Even the Filler Episodes are full of saiyans…. (Copy Vegeta Saga)
Super is nice. I love Super, I love the new Arc. But fuck you for making Piccolo weak as fuck. His death against Tagoma was just needless just like his participation in the U6 Tournament. Toei/Toriyama please stop hurting the Piccolo Fans so bad. Stop hyping Piccolo up all the time when its going to be a disappointment in the end anyway.
Remember that one Preview? I think it was Episode 28 or 27, with Piccolos and Gohans training? I was so hyped for this shit, I couldn’t wait to see this Episode.. And what was it? An entire recap Episode with 30 seconds of Piccolo and Gohan. Thanks! But go on Toei, make more Episodes about Pilaf and co! Thats great!
The warrior and the bond that he formed with his family. After the fight with Freeza, Vegeta started living on earth and became kind of a family man. An aloof man like him having people he wants to protect is what makes him stronger!
After the unexpected happened, Vegeta and Bulma became a couple!?
After his home planet and Freeza, who he depended on, were both annihilated, Bulma somehow sensed his loneliness beneath his arrogance and asked him: ‘how about you come and live in my house?’
Bulma: Why don’t you come too? You don’t look like you have money for lodging.
Ever since he started living in Bulma’s house, Vegeta spent all his time training.
And the impossible child was born!!
After the humiliation that he suffered after losing to Freeza and his frustration after being surpassed by Goku, Vegeta trained nonstop. Bulma was drawn to that high pride of his and then, a child was born!
Goku: your father is Vegeta, right, Trunks?
-The youth Trunks who came from the future is the grown-up version of this baby.
Vegeta: I knew it! You bastard! How dare you do that to other people’s wives? Why don’t you give him naked pictures of your own wife, Chichi?
-While he’s a mighty warrior, when it comes to his wife, he loses his cool?
Trunks: Dad is way too strong!
Trunks inherited his father’s self-confidence. Being the child of Bulma and Vegeta, Trunks’ curiosity and confidence in himself are both high, and he’s equipped with a great sense when it comes to martial arts. Moreover, he greatly admires his strong father. Trunks can transform into a super saiyan ever since he was a kid.
Trunks: I’ll show you that I can win without using my left hand!
-Trunks is gifted and received special training from his father. His self-confidence and abilities are similar to his.
Vegeta: looks like Trunks will win *snicker*.
-Vegeta is also a parent who’s enthusiastic about his son…!? Even when it comes to his son, Vegeta is burning with rivalry toward Goku.
He now has a family and for the first time in his life, Vegeta is fighting for someone other than himself.
He’s a man who fought until now for the sake of his pride and to fulfill his ambition. When Buu appeared, humanity was in a pinch, and his desire to protect his family prompted him to self-destruct!
Vegeta: take care, Trunks.
-When he hugged Trunks for the first time, he conveyed his love along with the warmth of his body.
Vegeta: farewell Bulma, Trunks and Kakarrot.
-After ensnaring Buu, the proud man scatterred…
Bulma: W-What’s this unease that I’m feeling? Vegeta…
-Through the bond that they share as a couple, Bulma felt an unease at the same moment Vegeta self-destructed.
Yeah they’re my favourite couple in the Dragonball franchise, I’ve never really been asked about it before.. so I guess:
When the pair first meet back on Earth (after Vegeta fights on their side against Frieza), Bulma is the only one who isn’t afraid to stand up to Vegeta and actually convinces him to stay with them – Vegeta who at this point was clearly their biggest potential threat. She’s as strong-willed as he is when it comes down to it, so they won’t take any shit from eachother, which is why they work well.
Bulma is really independent and intelligent, she doesn’t need Vegeta, she choses to be with him. Although they fight stubbornly, they still highly respect eachother’s strength and differences. She gives him his space and he can be himself, but she also brings him out of his comfort zone once in a while because she knows he needs it.
She’s also very kind-hearted, which is a kind of person Vegeta has not had in his life, he’s needed someone to care about him and someone to care about back. She’s a good match for him in every way – fiesty, beautiful, intelligent, kind and generous.
Surely their relationship grew from lust, but then it slowly grew into true feelings as time passes throughout Dragonball Z and into Super. Trunks is born and Vegeta still stays with her after the Cell Saga of his own free will, instead of leaving as you’d expect of a ‘heartless’ Saiyan warrior. Then during the Buu Saga he even sacrificed his life for his family in an effort to thwart Buu, confirming his affection by telling Trunks to “take care of your mother” before knocking him out for his safety.
After Buu’s defeat and everyone is resurrected we move onto Dragonball Super, where we see Vegeta being a family man (as best he can), as the family go to the amusement park he promised Trunks about. My final bit of evidence is during Bulma’s birthday where she gets smacked to the ground by the God of Destruction (whom nobody has a chance at defeating), Vegeta absolutely loses control and holds his own against the God inflicting damage on him as a mortal Super Saiyan! (and he still holds a grudge against the God for it!)
I think my absolute favorite thing about this episode was how supportive Bulma and Trunks are of Vegeta and how he almost seems to look back at them before deciding not to kill Frost as if he’s just trying to make them proud and AKFBDKJDJCBF ITS JUST SO SWEET I LOVE YOU CANON FAMILY MAN VEGGIE PANTS
Was anyone else kinda… dissatisfied with the end of the Zamasu Arc? And in Super in general? But why? The villain was pretty new for this franchise, and we got some great reunions and sucker punches to the feels. So why DOES this feel so unsatisfying?
I’ve wondered about it, and really, I think the biggest difference between DBZ and DBS is that the latter begins when all the characters already have closure. And with the exception of Future Trunks getting to actively see how his father cares for him now, Dragon Ball Super has never satisfied (or properly built) the anticipation, or call for character or plot resolution that fans bank on, that requires a battle arc to resolve it.
I mean, think about it.
DBZ began with the tension left over from Piccolo Jr being “allowed” to live after Goku grants him his blessing with a sensu–and viewers felt a tenuous peace on Earth after that. Goku becoming a father was also a HUGE deal for his character as well, and a massive shift from the little squirt audiences knew and loved.
And then Raditz came, and the series fucking exploded.The impact of its momentum was even felt all the way to the end of the Buu Saga in Vegeta’s immensely satisfying redemption and humility towards his one-sided rival, Goku. And the Saiyan Saga was filled with game-changing exposition and unprecedented drama, and fans were invested like hell in all these outcomes–varied and in many ways giving fans something to grip onto even when power scaling became ridiculous.
….And of course, the events laid out in the Saiyan Saga–even BEFORE that, as fans wondered where the mysterious wild boy Goku came from anyway–blew up even FURTHER. Without launching into an exhaustive list, the significance of this saga and the amount of emotional payoff and anticipation provided were huge.
Same can easily be said for the Android and Cell Saga–corresponding with all the power scaling going on, we had new character dynamics for our main cast that helped shape the entire future of the series (Vegeta and Bulma especially), increased the cast itself, provided battles with incredible payoff to invested fans (Gohan going SSJ2, anyone?) and also–gave us the second death of Goku, which was intended for keeps. Way to keep us on the edge of our seats yet again–and build up anticipation, excitement and speculation, when we know there’s even MORE DBZ to come ahead!
And, can you deny it? This piece of shit was amazing. Vegeta’s mid-life crisis and, growth and the completion of his character arc, spanning nearly the entire franchise, was amazing. Many “what ifs” were at stake, new characters arose, world building expanded and in some ways, the stakes (and mistakes) were bigger than ever. Everybody even DIED. Buu was unlike any villain the series had ever seen. And whether you like it or not, nobody saw Saiyaman coming. And in the end, Goku came back to life and became a family man once again.
And lastly, the very end of DBZ, although an epilogue to Dragon Ball Super as well, isn’t that far off from the end of the Buu saga, either. Goku is a family man and restored to life. Vegeta is chill as fuck. Piccolo is whole again and also chilling. The aliens of the Freeza Saga aren’t relevant anymore, and 17 and 18 have settled down. Tien, Chaotzu, and Yamcha have all completely fucked off. To be fair, Goten and Trunks have also kind of fucked off, too. Gohan is done being the child compelled to fight–and has settled down to fulfill his dream to become a scholar. And while Uub, Pan and Bra all have the potential to be interesting, that feels more premature than unfinished business. Goku is kind of a dick and takes off with Uub to train and visit his fam (I’m discounting GT entirely here, btw) but other than that.. meh?
Now, I’m not saying the movies haven’t provided some interesting retcons and world expansion, either. But let me ask you–are you on the edge of your seat, waiting to find out what’s gonna happen with Beerus and Whis next–or are you sitting back wondering when something interesting might happen that could involve them?
Don’t get me wrong. It’s COOL to think about what else could have happened, and Super is trying to fulfill that role–but it’s failing. Aside from Zamasu/Black being a new type of villain for the series, there was really nothing in the expanded world building beyond showing us how there are multiple universes, prior to him showing up that compelled our anticipating his arrival, either. In fact, the real ringer fans have been waiting for since we learned of there being different universes, has been our interest in seeing more mother fuckin Saiyans.
THIS little piece of shit.
In a series that has already found closure, if there is ONE catharsis that fans have wanted to see for decades, it’s HAVING THE SAIYANS, AS A PEOPLE, TAKE CENTER STAGE. Whether through some freak resurrection, or another universe where Saiyans are still alive and kicking, (or dying to see Raditz come back and power up just so we can get another character who’d have a lot to redeem for and enrich the lives of other characters around them) we’ve vied for a pipe dream that has been rife with interest and speculation since we found out they’d effectively gone extinct the moment we learned about Goku’s heritage. Come on, show us the world building. Make Vegeta nostalgic and pull at his heart strings. Let them be useful somehow–get fucking creative like the Buu saga was! Don’t make them be lame or disappointing. Let them be taller and cooler looking than Cabba. Respect the hype. Surprise us with some PLOT. And show us some canon fucking fighting female Saiyans already.
Thankfully, Super threatened to have another tournament come up and an opportunity for Vegeta to see the original Saiyan homeworld, Salada, and that and the birth of Bra are what us fans are clinging to desperately right now. Cuz with Zamasu dead, it’s back to a series with closure again, and Vegeta and Goku goin’ Blue, power scaling even more to GET STRONGER, JUST CUZ.
