Beets is a Saiyan with a slim, almost skeletal build, black hair, prominent cheekbones and a tail. He wears a blue jumpsuit and wristbands, white boots, a waist belt holder, and armor similar to Vegeta during the Androids Saga.
Unlike most Saiyans, Beets is shown to be cowardly and scared of combat. He's a careful man, unwilling to park his ship in a dangerous place, and seems to constantly be wary once he reaches Planet Vampa. Nonetheless, he's a loyal man and willing to follow Paragus in spite of his fear.
Due to his status as a Low-class engineer and Non-combatant, Beets lacks battlefield experience as shown by his ignorance that Vampa's Moon could trigger the Great Ape transformation and failing to wrap his tail around his waist while in hostile territory (a custom practiced by members of the Saiyan Army) such as Planet Vampa.
Dragon Ball Super
Main article: Dragon Ball Super: Broly When Paragus took a ship to help his son Broly, who was exiled to planet Vampa by King Vegeta, Beets tried to stop him but ended up inside of the ship against his will. After an emergency landing at Vampa, Beets was ordered to join Paragus in his search for Broly so that he could take off with the ship alone, though said he would never do such a thing. They were attacked by the local fauna and eventually found Broly inside of a cave, feasting on one of the creatures.
They decided to leave the planet, however, the ship's main floater was cracked due to the rough landing and fixing it was impossible. Beets is then killed by Paragus so he can save more provisions for him and Broly.
Beets is a low-class, non-combatant Saiyan and utilizes a Ray Gun. He notes that the young Broly's power level of 920 is higher than his own and is mostly inexperienced compared to Paragus. He is killed by a single shot from a Ray Gun.

Forms and Transformations
Main article: Great Ape A giant, anthropomorphic, monkey-like creature that Saiyans can transform into at the full moon to increase their already formidable strength tremendously. Beets said he has never transformed into a Great Ape and was unaware that looking at a full moon would trigger the transformation. According to Paragus, Beets would lose his rationality and go berserk if he transformed due to his inexperience with the transformation. As he follows Paragus' advice, he does not transform and later dies without ever having transformed in his life.
