Dragon Ball Super Writer Speaks on Vegeta’s Comeback in Tournament of Power
Howdy everyone, What’s up? I got an amazing news right here, and it’s exclusive to all Vegeta fans out there; Yep, as you read the title already. We got a tweet from the writer of Dragon Ball Super, Toshio.
As we know, More than half of the Tournament of Power is already over, the time left is 21 minutes; The last one standing will get his/her universe spared from being destroyed and get a chance to wish through the Super dragon balls. Most of the nuisance-causing warriors are already eliminated except for Rebrianne and few more warriors.
Recently, Dragon Ball Super aired it’s 114th episode, featuring the Potara fusion between one berserk super saiyan and a normal saiyan which resulted in Kefla; Despite the fact that it’s Kale and Caulifla’s fusion, Kefla resemble more of Caulifla’s personality and overconfidence. Kefla also retains Caulifla’s overweening attitude.
And, it is also confirmed that Goku will attain ‘Ultra Instinct’ again and soon in Dragon Ball Super (Episode 116). However, his eyes will start turning silver again in Episode 115; As it is revealed in the latest synopsis by Dragon Ball Super’s staff.
Now, let’s head back to Toshio’s tweet on ‘Bringing Vegeta back’
I finished writing a cool Vegeta✨
OK, let's sleep😪

And it generally takes 3-4 months, animating the paper work into screen work. Or, the story into animation. So we might see Vegeta’s comeback in January or February (Maximum to maximum). So, what kind of comeback are we really going to see?
As we all know, that Toppo has a form/Ki (which was shown in the manga) taught by Vermouth/Belmod (The god of destruction of their Universe) as Toppo is the God of Destruction candidate for Universe 11. And, that’s why we should not underestimate him. His powers were said to be the second strongest after Jiren in their Universe and somehow, his power rivals to that of his god of Destruction.
Toppo vs Vegeta is going to be a fight of another level. I mean, everyone noticed that Vegeta is surprisingly calm from the beginning of Tournament of Power. Well, it isn’t because he just meditated in the Time chamber. It’s because he is indeed hiding something up his sleeves. And, we might see that after some episodes in Dragon Ball Super. I mean, after the studio animate the story written by the story-writers.
What makes me think, that Vegeta achieved a better form is because? ( You must read the complete article, then you’ll realize it makes sense)
First off let me just say that Vegeta vs Toppo happening off-screen is not a good thing for fans. This match-up was something many desired before the Tournament Of Power even began. A fight like this really should have an episode or two dedicated towards it, hopefully, we see something later on.
Anyways on to the topic at hand. Every time Goku has surpassed Vegeta, Vegeta has always came to the realization that Goku is stronger than him, whether in a humble or covetous way. Whether he was frustrated or being humble about it he did always make it clear that at those moments he was weaker in power than Goku. He did it the first time he saw Goku on Namek take down Recoome.
Vegeta Said ” With that one blow, Kakarot has proved himself stronger than any other saiyan I have ever known. Perhaps any saiyan in a 1000 years, and I prince of all saiyans, somehow become a witness to this moment. I’m the only one who understands what he’s become. Kakarot has become a Super Saiyan.”
He even later did it when he told Frieza that Goku had become a Super Saiyan and would be the one to beat him.
This happens again in the Cell Saga as well. When Goku powered up to full power Super Saiyan Vegeta knew Goku had surpassed him and even said it here.
The third time this happens is during the Buu saga, when Vegeta learns about SS3 and then later admits Goku is better than him.
Moving onto the Dragonball Super during the Universe 6 vs Universe 7 tournament when Goku used Kaioken with SSB, Vegeta legitimately looks pissed that Goku is one step ahead of him
Every time Goku has ascended to a new level its been the same pattern with Vegeta. Fast forward to the current TOP and things here are different. Vegeta’s reaction to Ultra Instinct is not what you’d expect. Instead, he just looked puzzled, trying to make sense of what was going on. He didn’t look frustrated or angry that Goku had gotten ahead of him. With the last couple of Episodes Vegeta’s attitude has been the same since the start of the tournament.
Despite seeing the battle between Jiren and Goku, he still wanted to challenge him until Toppo Interfered. Toppo called him second fiddle which pissed him off and Vegeta challenged his statement. Even in the current episode, Vegeta said he’s still on top of all the Saiyans. He says he’s going to win and resurrect U6 Saiyans with the super Dragonballs. His mind hasn’t changed, he hasn’t said “oh well I guess I’ll let kakarot win this one for us”.
He’s not discouraged or demoralized despite seeing Goku lose in Ultra Instinct form, and Hit getting knocked out. This is why I strongly believe Vegeta has a much greater role to play, that we’ll most likely see him attain a new power-up.
