Vegeta’s first appearance also brought with it his first heroic act.
Throughout all these years it has been possible to see how Dragon Ball has had a tendency to put villains turned into alliesbeing so that this could be seen with Ten Shin Ham, Piccolo and Vegeta, especially the latter due to the fact that today it has become the Goku’s battle partner and even in Bulma’s partner, who were the great protagonists of the original series.
In this way, although it has recently been possible to see how Vegeta has been blamed for a traffic accident, the truth is that it is remarkable to mention that the Saiyan has been characterized by being less benevolent with his rivals, being so that he has no qualms about killing those he defeats, unlike Goku. However, it seems that one of these murders would have been his first heroic act.
Nappa’s murder is considered to be Vegeta’s first praiseworthy act.
Under this premise, if we go back to the Saiyans saga, we could see how, after defeating practically all the Z Warriors, Nappa ended up being defeated by Gokuleading to his death at the hands of Vegeta as punishment for his disappointing performance, as he was blamed for losing to a Saiyan who barely had any training.
And despite the fact that this act was a great intimidating element for the Z Fighters, the truth is that in the long run it has been quite beneficial, since Nappa had no qualms about destroying an entire citybeing so, if he had not died at the hands of Vegeta, the Zenkaithe Saiyan’s ability to get stronger when they’ve been close to death, would have made him extremely powerfulthis being something very dangerous if we take into account the thirst for blood that he had.
In fact, Vegeta is much more reasonable despite being stronger, which in the long run has allowed him to change sides. Thus, Nappa’s death averted a major disaster.
