Why do Western anime fans love him so much?
>>
dbz was shit
>>
>>139836124
He's the strong and cool edgelord everyone wants to be when they're 12.
>>
While his characterization was utter shit as expected of anime in general (but especially with shounen), his concept was a good enough idea. A villain turned antihero / rival + life long combat partner to the main protagonist. Plus, a lot of the humor comes from the fact he was a planet-destorying warrior prince who now has to live in Bulma's house.
>>
>>139836124
Because Veggie is best saiyan
>Inb4 he's a jobber
>>
A short whiney edgy douche who thinks he is hot shit but life hits him back to reality.

Pretty much /a/ in a nutshell except he gets a girl and bangs her.
>>
>>139836124
"Vegeta impregnating Bulma with Bulla" arc when?
>>
Because westerners love edgy faggots.

He was really badass on Namek, and so everyone fell in love with him.
>>
>>139836124
Because he's an asshole.
>>
>>139836124

because Majin Vegeta happened
>>
>>139836124
they identify with manlets
>>
>>139836124
Because unlike Goku he changed in the long run of the show.
Hell you can see it more then anything in dragonball super.
>>
>>139839342
This. He went from genocidal egotistical asshole to someone who would embarrass and even kill himself to protect his waifu and son.

Besides Gohan he was the only other character who really grew throughout the series, and he always had at least one decent fight in every arc.

>>139839726
Thanks doc

>>139839726

Thanks, doc.
>>
>>139837029
don't worry, everyone who isn't goku is a Jobber or completely forgotten
>>
>>139836259
So true dragon ball is 1000% better then dragon ball z.
>>
>>139836124
1.- He is a manlet
2.- Antisocial
3.- Dumb
4.- But despite all that he gets fine pussy.

Literally the role model of all those autistic kinds who had no friends.

Well, Vegeta isnt being forgotten, especially when Super happened
I hate people when says Vegeta is a jobber when he isnt
Especially because pic related
>>
>>139836124
I'm never watching dragon ball z ever again it really bad.
>>
>>139836124
What is the best about him and why is his pride?
>>
>>139836124
Isn't he popular is japan as well with him and his pride and honer?
>>
Fuck this trash franchise.
>>
>>139842690
He's popular everywhere. He is the quintessential antihero deuteragonist.
>>
>>139842690
Vegeta isn't honorable. He beats up children, kills defenseless people, throws dirt during fights and attacks people from behind. He's proud, but not honorable.
>>
>>139836124
badass
underdog
full of rage
>>
>>139836124
Babby's first antihero

>>139839726
Thanks doc

>>139839726
Thanks, doc.

he's arrogant, white people are intrinsically arrogant and self centered
>>
>>139836124
Because he's an arrogant dick that constantly got the shit kicked out of him for being an arrogant dick.

I only remember him doing like half that stuff. Maybe a quarter.

>>139844064
I loved it everytime
>>
>>139844250
aside from attacking from behind he's killed random people, attacked Gohan, and threw dirt in Zarbon's eyes.
>>
>>139844250

he's doing half that shit right here

And the fact that Americans skipped Piccolo being villain, aka, 1/3 of the same fucking character development.

Piccolo becoming a good guy was nothing like Vegeta becoming a "good" guy.
>>
>>139845872
Yeah, it was actually a more interesting plot of evil guy accepting his good side, when good side was hesitant about doing what's best for the world.

While Vegeta was "i am gud now cause of pussy, lmao"
>>
>>139845872
>start off as bitter enemies
>Goku beats him
>they meet again and form an uneasy alliance to take out a greater threat
>additional threats appear before they can go back to being enemies
>said additional threats cement them as being on the same side
Who am I talking about, Vegeta or Piccolo?
>>
>>139845981
Vegeta literally never stopped being a villain. Did you miss the part where he helped Cell become perfect, or when he killed hundreds of people at the Budokai?
>>
Because characters that have more internal struggle and aren't 100% good guy are always fun to see.

Seeing vegeta develop was much more entertaining then Goku going through another power trance for his world.

>ever stopped being a villain
Were you not paying attention at all during the Buu saga? He literally let Babidi take over because he was pissed at himself for going from villain to family man.
>>
>>139846041
Did you miss the entirety of Majin Buu saga, or did you just stop at the beginning? During Cell Saga he was still copying pre-Kamimerge Piccolo.

During Majin Buu saga he was already so domesticated that he had to sell his soul to Bobiddi to be able to pull off what he used to do during Vegeta saga.
>>
>>139846132
In the Saiyan Saga Piccolo gave his life to save Goha. In the Android Saga Vegeta blew up a civilian and attacked Trunks when he tried to kill Cell. Do you not see the difference? Vegeta was not a good guy during the Android Saga. He wasn't a good guy until after Buu was released and he realized that he finally had people he cared about.
>>
>>139836124
he's really popular with the Nips too though, isn't he? It's not just a gaijin thing
>>
>>139836124
Anti-Hero presented to preteens. It's not rocket science.
>>
>>139846255
>In the Saiyan Saga Piccolo gave his life to save Goha
Exactly my point, Piccolo is a more interesting character than Vegeta copycat.

>In the Android Saga Vegeta blew up a civilian and attacked Trunks when he tried to kill Cell. Do you not see the difference
Why, yes, I do, how does that contradict anything I have said? During Android Saga Piccolo made it pretty clear that he was not Krillin's or Tien's new friend.
>>
>>139836124
Vegeta is popular everywhere. His popularity is the reason why Toriyama didn't kill him in the first place. He is one of the rival archetypes, is an antihero, got character development and is a Saiyan.
>>
>>139836124
Because he wasn't a 1 dimensional character like goku was, easily second best behind based Piccolo.
>>
>>139836124
He's undefeated against Goku.
>>
>>139839726

Because he has actual character development.

He also works hard to accomplish his goals-

Definitely Piccolo as Goku hasn't beaten Veggie yet ;^)
