A list of Vegeta's techniques and special abilities.

Abilities

Physical Abilities

Main article: Saiyan Considered to be a prodigy, even amongst high-class warriors, Vegeta is the powerful Prince of all Saiyans, with his own strength even surpassing that of his father at a young age. As a Saiyan, Vegeta possesses a vast array of superhuman physical attributes, which he has trained to God-like levels through years of rigorous training.

  • Superhuman Strength: As a Saiyan, Vegeta possesses immense physical strength, far more advanced than that of any human being, and most alien races. He is strong enough to effortlessly break all Earthling-made materials or weapons, move in increased gravity without any discomfort, and even lift a suit capable of sinking through a planet. Although, in a comical scene of the Dragon Ball Super manga, even as a Super Saiyan he is not strong enough to even make the one thousand ton Magetta move.
  • Superhuman Speed: As an extremely experienced and trained Saiyan warrior, Vegeta can move and fly at hypersonic and eventually light speeds, enabling him the ability to travel great distances in short periods of time, or move at "untrackable" speeds while in combat.
  • Superhuman Durability: As a highly trained Saiyan, Vegeta's body is far more durable than that of normal human beings, being essentially invulnerable to all Earthling-made weapons. However, while naturally durable thanks to his Saiyan physiology, he does have limits, as other powerful beings as himself can hurt, and potentially kill him, if he does not defend himself correctly, and when purposely lowering his guard and ki to protect him, even an energy wave from Krillin, a being far weaker than himself, was capable of leaving him near death, though it did require two attempts from the later, with Vegeta claiming his first try was useless.
  • Superhuman Senses: Vegeta is able to think and react at extremely high speeds, easily able to dodge or catch projectiles fired from weapons, or even keep up with incredible combat speeds from his opponents. As a Saiyan, Vegeta also has enhanced senses of smell, taste and sight, which further increase his combat senses and instincts.

Energy Abilities

As a elite Saiyan warrior, Vegeta has great mastery over his own Ki, the natural life force every being has, and uses it to increases his fighting abilities.

  • Flight – The ability to take flight through the manipulation of ki. As a Saiyan, Vegeta can naturally fly at incredible speeds with minimal effort.
  • Ki Sense – The ability to sense the energy of other beings. Vegeta learned this technique after his first battle against Goku on Earth.
  • Ki Transfer – Vegeta can grant some of his energy to a wounded person to restore some of their energy.
  • Godly Ki mastery – Vegeta can change the nature of his Ki to that of the gods, increasing his power drastically. With the Godly Ki, Vegeta gains access to god-level transformations such as the Super Saiyan God and the Super Saiyan Blue.

Mental Abilities

  • Extremely high willpower – Vegeta's willpower, which is mainly fueled by his pride as the prince of the Saiyans, is such that he can stand great physical and mental stress. His willpower is such that he can remain immobile for days under the extreme conditions of a wasteland or counter Babidi's powerful Manipulation Sorcery.
  • Gag manga awareness: Vegeta is capable of being aware of when he has entered into a gag manga environment, as opposed to his usual battle manga one.[1][2] He is also capable of switching to a gag manga type fighting style in these situations, which he displays against Arale.

Techniques

Energy Techniques

Offensive Techniques

  • Ki Blast - The most basic form of energy wave.
  • Galick Gun Vegeta's signature technique. Vegeta curls his fingers and places both his hands together at chest level facing the same direction (so that the palm of one hand is on the back of the other). Then, once enough ki is gathered, he thrusts both hands forward to fire a powerful blast of energy. The result is a powerful, huge, fuchsia-colored ki beam that emanates from his hands and body. It is capable of destroying large planets if enough power is put into it.
    • Final Galick Cannon – Vegeta charges at the opponent and punches them in their face. Then, he attacks the opponent with a rapid barrage of punches and kicks before punching them in their stomach. Finally, Vegeta charges purple energy in his fist and fires the energy in the form of a Galick Gun through the opponent's stomach, inflicting a great deal of damage.
    • Final Burst Cannon - To perform the attack, Vegeta draws his hands out to his sides as he powers up, creating an enormous whitish-purple aura around his body. Then, he throws his arms out in front of him and fires a large Galick Gun energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage.
    • Galick Blazer - Vegeta shoots the attack from one hand, with the other arm supporting the one that is firing the attack.
    • Double Galick Cannon - First, Vegeta charges at the opponent, but stops right in front of them and places both of his hands on the opponent's chest. Then, he charges yellow energy in his hands. Finally, Vegeta fires the yellow energy in the form of a massive energy wave against the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage.
    • Super Galick Blaster - When he performs this move, Vegeta opens his mouth and fires a pink energy wave toward the opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage.
  • Galaxy Breaker - First, Vegeta generates electricity around his chest and converts it into a bluish-white aura around his body. Then, he thrusts his chest forward and fires a huge energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage as well as causing the opponent's body to violently contort.
  • Shine Shot - The user prepares a ball of fire in their hands and throws it, tossing the fireball at the opponent to severely burn them or worse. The user sometimes moves in a sideways direction after firing the attack.
  • Tail Slicer - A variation of the Destructo Disc.
  • Super Explosive Wave - The user stands charging energy around their body, then they explode with a gigantic energy sphere around their body. If the foe comes in contact with the Super Explosive Wave, it will deal much greater damage than the normal Explosive Wave. It can also be used for defense and offense at the very same time. It also appeared in the anime and some other video games with similar effects. The larger the user or the more ki they have, the wider and more enhanced it will become.
  • Dirty Fireworks - With the enemy on the ground or in the air, Vegeta aims at them with his outstretched index and middle fingers held together and creates a huge explosion on the opponent, inflicting a great amount of damage.
  • Lucora Gun - A Continuous Energy Bullet.
  • Big Bang Attack - In order to perform it, Vegeta extends his arm, opens his palm and turns his hand up at a 90 degree angle. He then powers up and fires a powerful energy sphere at the opponent. This attack creates an enormous explosion upon contact and leaves a huge mushroom cloud.
    • God Heat Flash - To preform the attack, Vegeta extends his arm, opens his hand, and charges ki in the palm of his hand, similar to the normal Big Bang Attack. However, Vegeta fires the attack as a beam instead of a sphere.
  • Photon Bomber - First, the user raises his right hand as he curls his fingers and charges a white energy sphere. Then, he brings his hand forward and fires the energy sphere in the form of an energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a great amount of damage.
  • Final Flash - The Final Flash is formed by drawing both hands back while gathering ki. Then, the user place bottom of their palms together, forming a sphere of energy that emits sporadic bolts of electric yellow ki that shoot out in all direction. Finally, the user discharges a massive golden beam of energy with electric ki streaming around it towards his opponent.
    • Final Crash - First, Vegeta draws his hands to his sides and charges two whitish-blue energy spheres with streaks of electricity. Then, he brings his hands together with fingers spread apart and fires a massive energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a large amount of damage.
  • Maximum Flasher - Vegeta draws his right hand back to his right side and charges a yellow energy sphere. Then, he brings his hand forward and fires the energy sphere in the form of an energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a great amount of damage.
  • Final Impact - Majin Vegeta raises his index finger, middle finger, and thumb forward and fires a powerful bolt of energy at the opponent, inflicting a large amount of damage.
  • Final Explosion - To begin the attack, Vegeta gathers his life force and converts it into energy, creating flame-like ribbons of energy that spiral around his body. Both his and his opponent's bodies begin emitting small flecks of golden light, resembling dust blowing off of their skin.
  • Heat Dome Attack - Vegeta points both his hands up in the air. Then, he charges a large dome of yellow energy around himself. From this energy dome expels a gigantic Finish Buster up at the opponent, inflicting an enormous amount of damage.
  • Gamma Burst Flash - Vegeta charges ki in both of his hands like a variant of Final Flash and then releases it similar to a Double Galick Cannon with his hands in an inverted position, resulting in a devastating beam capable of greatly damaging even those who are stronger than Vegeta himself.
  • Kiai – A technique where the user affects the air currents around him with ki to produce powerful shockwaves in order to strike the opponent. In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Vegeta fires compressed air spheres from the palm of his hand at his opponents.

Support Techniques

  • Power Ball - By combining ki with the planet's atmosphere, a sphere of condensed Blutz Waves is created. Using this, a Saiyan can achieve the Great Ape transformation even when a full moon (or similar planetary body) is not present. However, using the technique is apparently very tiring, so it is primarily used as a last resort, and even Saiyans that can use it prefer to transform using a planetary body. The Power Ball disappears after 90 minutes.

Finally, Vegeta puts his hand over the opponent's face and blasts them away with an energy wave, inflicting a huge amount of damage.
  • Amazing Impact - First, Vegeta dodges the opponent's punch and lays on the ground to double kick them up into the air. Then, he backflips up onto his feet and flies up into the air above the opponent. Finally, Vegeta knocks the opponent down to the ground with a Double Axe Handle, inflicting a high amount of damage.
    • Wild Hunt - The user starts the attack by knocking the opponent away with an uppercut, then uses a flying dash to get around behind the opponent to deliver an aerial version of Amazing Impact's double kick to send the opponent flying away again, then flies up into the air to deliver the Double Axe Handle portion of Amazing Impact knocking the opponent into the ground, before powering up with their arms & legs outstretched like a star, then performs a double fist flying charge (similar to Nova Strike) to presumably finish off the helpless opponent.

All natural inhibitions of the body are completely removed in this state, resulting in 100% utilization of strength and stamina reserves.
