Vegeta is the prince of the Saiyans from the Dragon Ball anime series and the rival of Goku. He appears in the 12th episode of Death Battle, Vegeta VS Shadow, where he went against Shadow the Hedgehog of the Sonic franchise. He was voiced by Nick Landis (Lanipator).
Vegeta also unofficially made an appearance in the joke Death Battle; "Vegeta vs Mewtwo?", where he "confronted" Mewtwo.
Vegeta was the prince of the Saiyans, a group of dedicated warriors whose planet was destroyed and race was enslaved by Lord Frieza. Vegeta became one of Frieza's top soldiers, but after hearing about the Dragon Balls, he and his companion Nappa traveled to planet Earth to achieve immortality, but were stopped by Goku and his friends. Vegeta tried to gather the Dragon Balls once again on Namek, even allying himself with his former enemies, but ended up getting killed by Frieza. He was resurrected, and despite his rebellious attitude, he would start a life on Earth by marrying Bulma and having a son named Trunks. He defends the Earth with the Z-Fighters and is now a friendly rival to Goku.
