"Lord Champa hasn't behaved any better, Grand Leader; just look at the shape he's in. I tell him it's affecting his performance, and I work so hard to give him nutritionally balanced meals, but he throws the plates on the ground, and tells me I'm a terrible cook. Oh, it breaks my heart, sire!"
Vados is a tall humanoid with pale blue skin, violet eyes, and long white hair, similar to Whis, although she wears it as a high ponytail. She carries a long scepter with a gem that floats above it, and she usually holds her staff in her right hand. Around her neck levitates a large light blue ring similar to the Grand Priest's. Her attire consists of green robes with puffy shoulders, a black cuirass with the same white and orange circle decorations as the God of Destruction Champa, and a red sash. She also wears green tights and white high heeled shoes with black soles.
Vados is a kind-hearted being, and can sometimes be pretty straightforward. She also often teases Champa for being overweight. She is also the one who politely introduced Champa to Goku after the latter asked who he is. She also displays concern with her God of Destruction's physique and health problems, as well as his selection of diet. Examples are shown when she and Champa walked together in a forest, with Champa tiring out very quickly, leading Vados to point out his obesity as the cause of his low stamina and why he couldn't keep up with her anymore. Another is when he was drinking a sugary beverage between meals, which also lead Vados to declare in skipping breakfast dinner tomorrow to even out her master's newly gained weight. This essentially makes her Champa's dietitian as well.
Like her younger brother Whis, she tends to love consuming different foods. It is also said by Vegeta that Vados walks leaving "no openings for an attack", stating that she must be as strong as at least Whis. She is also eloquent, respectful, wise, and can be rather remorseless when it comes to the things which she is responsible for, or at the very least are aware of, as she is seen destroying a planet when Champa commanded her to without batting an eye.
After the Grand Minister announces that the losing Universes in the Tournament of Power will be obliterated and that only the Angels will be preserved, Vados simply closes her eyes and silently smiles when Champa confronts her about it, which shows that she does not openly show affection towards him. She also sarcastically cried at the thought of him being erased during the tournament. However, despite all her teasing, Vados did truly care for Champa to at least some extent, as shown by her respectfully bowing to him when he and the rest of Universe 6 were eventually erased.
She is a very composed and insightful individual. Noteworthy, she is the only Angel of the other universes who has any respect for Goku, while most of the attending Destroyers (Mosco and Jerez being the only apparent exceptions) mutually hated and blamed Goku for the Tournament of Power, Vados responds by stating that they are all in debt to Goku. She pointed out that Zeno was already going to erase all of them with their universes completely, but Goku's closeness with Zeno was able to convince the Omni-King to give the underdeveloped universes a chance to survive by winning the Tournament of Power, which they all ignore. At the same time, she can also be rather mischievous, as she once intentionally instigated a fight between Beerus and Champa, as she made a birthday cake with only one Puff-Puff fruit on it. This is pointed out by Whis when Beerus and Champa are fighting.
It appears that Vados has a closer relationship with Whis than with her other siblings, as she chose to join Universe 7's section of the audience after Universe 6 was erased. When this was brought up by her sister Marcarita (somewhat accusingly) possibly questioning her loyalty given that it was Universe 7 who causes her Universe's erasure, she seemed nervous in explaining her reason. This choosing to side with universe 7 could be due to the fact that the two spend more time with each other than with other Angels due to their universes being twins.
Long ago, Champa and Beerus got into a fight because Beerus ate the Puff-Puff fruit on their birthday cake. While they were fighting, Vados is questioned by her brother, Whis, wondering if she intentionally set off the situation by putting one Puff-Puff fruit on their cake. Vados and Whis decide to end their fight by chopping their necks because they could destroy the universe at the rate they were going. Champa and Beerus decide never to fight one-on-one again but have food showdowns instead.
For decades, Champa has been looking for the Super Dragon Balls. In all of his searches, he was able to find six of the Super Dragon Balls.

Universe 6 Saga
Main article: Universe 6 Saga Vados and Champa reach Beerus' Planet. Vados tells Goku and Vegeta that she is Whis' older sister and that she is a little stronger than he is, Whis, however, disagrees. Vados also tells them that Champa is Beerus' twin brother and that he is the God of Destruction of Universe 6. It is explained by Whis to them that Universe 7 and Universe 6 are twin universes, equaling 13. Vados was told by Champa to search for their universe's Earth while he and Beerus have a food duel. She finds it and tells everyone that the Earthlings have been driven to extinction due to war. Champa declares a Tournament of Destroyers over having the Universe 7's Earth using five warriors from their respective universes.
After Whis explains why Beerus and Champa don't fight anymore, the rules for the tournament are discussed. The rules are that if Champa wins, he will use the Super Dragon Balls to switch the universes' Earth. To Vados' surprise, she knows that Goku has knowledge of the Dragon Balls. If Beerus won, then Champa will give the six balls he had but Beerus would have to find the last one on his own. The tournament will be held on the Nameless Planet in five Earth days at 10 a.m. Vados and Champa leave Beerus' planet after this.
Vados and Champa are on the Nameless Planet arranging the arena. Vados asks Champa if he's picked his team, and he responds that he notices that Goku and Vegeta are Saiyans and that he needs Saiyans for his team. The day of the tournament, Vados is on the Nameless Planet waiting for the arrival of Universe 7's team. Once they arrive, Vados commences the writing exam to be eligible to compete in the tournament.

After the time is up, Vados reveals everyone except for Majin Buu is able to compete, leaving the tournament five-on-four.

Botamo is beaten by Goku by a ring-out because Goku could not deal damage to Botamo. The next fighter for Universe 6 is Frost, going up against Goku. When Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan against Frost, Vados seems surprised of seeing this, implying she doesn't know about Super Saiyans.

While watching Goku fight Hit on Earth with Champa, she explains to him some of Hit's peculiar abilities.

Universe Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga In the manga, Vados is summoned along with the other Gods of all the universes to Zeno's Palace, where the Grand Minister announces the Tournament of Power and coerces the Gods of Destruction to participate in an exhibition match under threat of erasure. After Champa complains about being rusty in combat, Vados points out that it is Champa's fault for skipping out on training.
Vados appears with Champa at the Tournament of Power preliminaries, watching the Zeno Expo between Team Universe 7 and Team Universe 9. During the God of Destruction meeting, Vados is the only one who is defending Goku, saying that without him, all eight universes in the Tournament of Power would have been erased without a second chance, only for everyone to ignore her. During the Tournament of Power, she remains mostly silent. After Universe 9 is erased, Vados sarcastically says goodbye to Champa, annoying the latter. She also says that his warriors would have to fight better in order to survive. During Hit and Dyspo's fight, Vados remains mostly silent, however she notes that she was able to see Dyspo's movements.
After Team Universe 6 and their universe were erased, Vados decided to sit with her brother Whis, Beerus and the Universe 7 drop-outs in their spectator bench section. After the Grand Minister reduces the bleachers to a smaller size, Marcarita questions Vados' sitting with Universe 7, to which she declared that “With Universe 6 gone, I thought I’d make myself at home with Universe 7.”

"Like I said, every participant has to pass the exam to participate. I don't have to explain this every time, do I?"
— Vados reminding everyone about the exam for a second time in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Vados appears during the Tournament of Destroyers and serves the same role she did in the original history. However due to a history change, Goku and Majin Buu fail to appear on the day of the tournament forcing Beerus and Whis to leave without them, giving Team Universe 6 an unfair advantage. Fortunately for Team Universe 7, Chronoa and Old Kai in Age 852 sends the 2nd Future Warrior to take Majin Buu's place as he never fought in the original timeline anyways, while Future Trunks and the his partner go find Goku. The warrior travels to Age 779 and finds themself in the middle of the ring which results in them being confronted by Beerus though Chronoa manages to explain they are their to fight as a member of Team Universe 7, though Beerus is not sure he can trust her recommendation. Champa is angry that they are bringing in outside help, though Beerus convinces him to go along with it by pointing out his unfair advantage as it was already three against five in Champa's favor. Vados however reminds everyone about the written test which the warrior hadn't taken. Champa is pleased with that she had remembered the written exam being a requirement for participating as it was Vegeta of the Universe 7 team that suggested the test in the first place and if the warrior fails he won't have to worry. Whis and Beerus agree that the warrior will take the exam.
However as a result Goku's absence, history is changed so that Piccolo faces Botamo instead of Goku as he is still missing. While Piccolo fight Botamo, the Warrior takes the test which Vados oversees. Elder Kai admits he had forgotten about the test which Chronoa calls him out for as he had been present during the original history and hopes she never grows old like him, though Elder Kai is confident they can achieve at least 50 points needed to pass. The warrior manages to finish the test, which Vados grades and reveals they passed to the anger of Champa who is already furious due to Botamo's loss to Piccolo. To make matters worse for Team Universe 6, the original Future Warrior appears with Goku after having tracked him down training on King Kai's Planet with Future Trunks. Goku reveals he thought the tournament was being held on a different date and had been training at King Kai's when apologizing for being late. However, Vados again reminds everyone must pass the exam in order to participate and is frustrated with having to remind Team Universe 7 about it every time. Beerus forces Goku to take the test. Champa still angry and asks if Beerus is cheating by bring in these fighters last minute, though Beerus points out is now a fair game, causing Champa to agree though he suggests they speed things up by doing tag team matches instead which Beerus agrees to. As a result, Beerus has the Warrior partner up with Piccolo against Frost and Cabba.
Elder Kai notes that Frost shouldn't be starting the fight in his final form which he attributes to Goku not qualifying in time. Eventually Frost resorts to using his Secret Poison on the Future Warrior who Frost almost manages to eliminate by ring out, though Piccolo manages to break off from fighting Cabba long enough to stop Frost's attack, allowing them to recover from the poison and rejoin the fight. Jaco notices Frost's cheating and informs the referee, resulting in Frost being disqualified. Cabba is surprised by Frost's cheating, causing Vados to inform everyone of Frost's true nature as the secret leader of the space pirates to which Frost himself proudly admits to. Vegeta orders the Future Warrior not to let Frost get off with a simple disqualification and Frost is allowed to continue fighting. Meanwhile Goku manages to finish his exam which he reveals he barely passed. The Future Warrior manages to defeat Frost, who is replaced by Hit though Cabba remains causing Vegeta to ask Piccolo to relinquish his spot by forfeiting.
While the warrior fights Hit, Vegeta faces Cabba. Like in the original history, Vegeta learns that Cabba is unable to go Super Saiyan causing him to attack Cabba mercilessly when he asks Vegeta to teach him to the disgust of Future Trunks who is unaware that his father is doing so in order to help Cabba transform into his Super Saiyan form. Vegeta tells Cabba to test out his new power on the Future Warrior while Vegeta transforms into Super Saiyan Blue and takes on Hit. Future Trunks is impressed by Cabba's power despite his recent transformation. Beerus asks Whis about Magetta whom he explains withdrew from the tournament after Champa insulted him by calling him "Rust Bucket" which caused Magetta to lose his will to fight and go home. The Warrior manages to KO Cabba only to discover Vegeta has been defeated by Hit who has been somehow empowered with Supervillain power-up. Beerus and Whis discovers Monaka has fainted from all the excitement and orders Goku to take his place. Suddenly Cabba and Frost enter the ring under the influence of Supervillain Mode. Goku tries to convince Monaka to jump in as well to make it three on three. Champa says if the fighters agree to it its not against the rules declaring it a battle royal, but Beerus pulls Monaka from the tournament saying that he'd kill everyone in a brawl like that and tells Goku to just get out into the ring and win. Goku is eventually forced to use the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken against Hit, while the Future Warrior focuses on eliminating Cabba and Frost.
After defeating Cabba and Frost, the three Universe 6 fighting fall out of Supervillain mode. There work finished, the Future Warrior steps out of the ring leaving Goku to face off against Hit alone. Beerus is outraged and asks if they want to be destroyed, though Chronoa speaks up for them and explains it was a Time Patrol mission. Champa, however is in a good mood and taunts his brother. After the Future Warrior leaves, Vados watches as Goku powers up and attacks Hit with a Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken Kamehameha. According to Future Trunks, Goku ultimately managed to defeat Hit resulting in a victory for Team Universe 7. Presumably these alterations where erased when Chronoa put the scrolls back together after the timeline had been fixed by Team Universe 7's victory.

- Manga and Anime
Being Champa's martial arts teacher, Vados is extremely powerful. Her level of power is even much greater than that of Champa's own, making her the strongest being in Universe 6. Vados claims to be slightly stronger than Whis, but Whis objects and tells her that it has been already a millennium since they trained together, indicating that when they trained together, Vados held superior power over her younger brother. It appears, nevertheless, that Vados is at least Whis's equal in Combat at the present time. Despite Whis's objection, Vados confidently asked him to see which one of them is stronger now.
As shown in the past battle between Beerus and Champa, Vados is strong enough to easily knock Champa out with a single blow to the neck.
Vados displays the ability to destroy an entire planet from a distance simply by tapping her staff. She was later shown strong enough to be able to instantly drag six Super Dragon Balls at once, which are the size of planets, while she was flying to the Nameless Planet.
In the manga, Vados was unaffected by Rumush's Battle Roar, which could stun Gods of Destruction and knock out Supreme Kais. She was also able to observe Dyspo's movements with full clarity, whereas Champa could not.
It should be noted that despite Vados' astronomical power, she is still well below the likes of the Grand Minister, and far below Zeno and Future Zeno, and thus must always be respectful and courteous when in their presence.
- Video Games
In Xenoverse 2, when fighting her, Hit notes the immense pressure given off by her power appears to be overwhelming. Whis also mentions that she was stronger than him 1000 years ago, but that it is anyone's guess which one of them is stronger now.
