A Heart of Evil Awakened Vegeta, Prince of Destruction

"A Heart of Evil Awakened Vegeta, Prince of Destruction" (よみがえるじゃしん かいおうベジータ!, Yomigaeru Jashin Hakai Ōji Bejīta!, lit. "A Wicked Heart is Revived — Vegeta, the Prince of Destruction!") is the one-hundred-thirteenth episode in Japan and the one-hundred and twentieth episode internationally of Dragon Ball Z Kai. This episode first aired in Japan on July 13, 2014. Its original American airdate was June 10, 2017.


A fierce battle unfolds between Gohan and Dabura, but Vegeta is irritated that Gohan is having such a difficult time against Dabura, who ability-wise is far below them. Sensing Vegeta's evil heart, Dabura asks Babidi to teleport them back on Stage 3 of Babidi's spaceship, saying that he has found a warrior. Dabura has decided to use Babidi's Manipulation Sorcery to make Vegeta their ally and have the Dragon Team fight amongst themselves. Babidi watches Vegeta having an argument with Goku, and confirms that his heart is indeed filled with evil. Using his magic, he succeeds in manipulating Vegeta, and then changes the stage to the World Martial Arts Tournament.


  • The visual effects surrounding Babidi’s crystal ball from his initial invasion of Vegeta’s mind have been updated, most likely to reduce the bright flashing effects seen in the original. If is worth noting that although the effects themselves have been redone, they have simply been overlaid on top of the original footage from Dragon Ball Z, which itself was not redrawn or re-animated in the scene.[1]
