From there however, the similarities end. Vegeta first made his appearance in Dragon Ball Z as the series#DY# main villain, with an intent to acquire the Dragon Balls and wish for immortality. Son Goku eventually defeats him (with great difficulty however), which begins Vegeta#DY#s role as Goku#DY#s rival.
In time, Vegeta#DY#s perpetual quest to defeat Goku drives him to improve his own combat abilities. As he and the rest of the Dragon Ball cast face off against ever more powerful beings however, Vegeta has on more than one occasion allied with his perceived arch nemesis to battle the threat.
From here, he slowly begins to recognize Goku as an ally, and eventually as a friend. There#DY#s also his relationship with Bulma that reflects how much he#DY#s softened up since his villainous debut, though we have no idea just what Bulma sees in him.
While Vegeta is constantly eclipsed by Goku#DY#s power, he#DY#s still a force to be reckoned with. Among other abilities, Vegeta is the first Dragon Ball character to show complete control of the otherwise unpredictable Giant Ape form.
He#DY#s also able to achieve Super Saiyan 4, a form that can only be pulled off by Goku and Gogeta (who is technically Goku and Vegeta combined). His other trademark attacks include the Final Flash, the Big Bang Attack, and the Galick Gun.
A Dragon Ball Online trailer hints that Vegeta and Goku might be available in the game. And from the looks of it, 216 years hasn#DY#t stifled their feuding, or their combat skills for that matter:

What sort of role will Vegeta play when Dragon Ball Online launches? We don#DY#t know, but the prospect of meeting or even training under him in-game is certainly an honor many a fan would love to dream about. Care to learn the Big Bang Attack as an end-game signature shot?
