Vegito (ベジット Bejitto), also known as Vegerot in the Viz English manga, is the resulting fusion between Goku and Vegeta by the use of the Potara Earrings. Like his Fusion Dance counterpart, Gogeta, Vegito is regarded as one of the most powerful characters in the original Dragon Ball manga.
Vegito first appeared at the end of Z episode "Union of Rivals" to start battling with Super Buu, with his second appearance in the next episode "Meet Vegito" as the main protagonist throughout the entire episode. His debut in Dragon Ball Super was many years later to fight and attempt to defeat Fused Zamasu, though they quickly defused due to over-usage of power.
Concept and creation
Vegito is a mixture of both Goku and Vegeta's characteristics, with a few deviations. He has the same body type as Goku, while his hair color is dark brown to reddish brown. He has Goku's softer jawline and Vegeta's sharper eyes. Vegito's upper hair style stands firmly upwards like Vegeta, while having Goku's hairline and has two bangs sticking out like a downward "V" shape. When he transforms into a Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan Blue, his hair shape stays the same. Vegito wears two yellow Potara earrings as result of the Potara fusion, and wears Goku's style of clothing with the colors reversed, reflecting Vegeta's outfit; he wears a blue gi and sash with an orange undershirt. Also from Vegeta, he wears white gloves and boots.
In Super Dragon Ball Heroes, Vegito wears a black gi with an orange shirt on his inside and a blue obi tied over it at his waist. He also wears Vegeta's white gloves and boots from Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.
Vegito's personality is a mixture of both Goku and Vegeta's characteristics. He exhibits Vegeta's cockiness and inclination for taunting others, and enjoys toying with enemies, but is not as serious, having inherited Goku's easygoing, cheerful nature. He possesses both Vegeta's strategic mind and tactical skills along with Goku's ingenuity and creativity, making him that much more efficient. Despite appearing cocky, he in fact retains Goku's benevolence and empathy. Being a whole new entity, he refers to his counterparts as separate people as they would address each other. During his fight with Super Buu, Vegito also showed signs of having a sense of humor, such as after Buu transformed Vegito into candy, Vegito claimed he wasn't no ordinary candy, but a jawbreaker and the "strongest candy there is".
However, he still retains the memories of each individual and can clearly distinguish between the two. This was shown when he stated he was wondering what would happen if "they" (Goku and Vegeta) merged, though he also referred to himself as "us" when talking about "sharing a body". In the original dub, he maintains Goku's respectful nature, referring to Old Kai as Dai Kaiōshin-sama.
In Dragon Ball Super, when Vegito returns at the near end of the "Future" Trunks Saga, his personality is mostly the same except he is far more serious than last time due to his opponent not needing to worry about any loved ones' safety and now knowing about his fusion's time limit. He is still somewhat cocky, tending to mock his opponent for things like sloppy fighting and ignorance of the situation.
Dragon Ball Z
Main article: Fusion Saga
The Potara Earring Fusion used to form Vegito is what Old Kai considers to be the proper way to do fusion, as opposed to the Fusion Dance technique. The resulting fusion lasts forever for Supreme Kais. However, the fusion only lasts one hour for mortals, even if the fused being removes the earrings. The determination of power levels is complex and more unpredictable than that of the Fusion Dance but in Vegito's case, the rise in power is inconceivably drastic. Vegito has the confidence and fighting smarts of Goku, along with the superior attitude and genius strategic mind of Vegeta.
Vegito is a fusion formed out of desperation by Goku and Vegeta in an effort to stop Super Buu, an ancient and powerful being whose only purpose is to destroy. Because Buu had absorbed Gotenks and Piccolo, Goku and Shin had come to a conclusion that the best chance they had of defeating Super Buu was through fusion, but there was no time to attempt the Fusion Technique. As a solution to this problem, the Potara Earrings were given to Goku to save the universe from Super Buu. Goku then proceeds to Earth just in time, before Super Buu launches his Destroy Everything! energy ball to destroy it. Goku threw the earring to Gohan so they could fuse, but Gohan failed to catch it. Super Buu then lost a large amount of power (over one third by Goku's observation) as Gotenks separated inside Buu. He then proceeds to absorb Gohan, becoming even deadlier and stronger than when he was ever before. Goku is now left with no one to fuse with that would be of any help (with the latter being Mr. Satan and Dende because Tien Shinhan was knocked out), but miraculously he senses Vegeta's energy, and uses Instant Transmission to quickly transport himself to Vegeta's location since Vegeta has just returned from the Other World with Fortuneteller Baba. Super Buu shortly follows and, after Goku tries to convince him, Vegeta fuses with Goku.
In the anime, Vegeta initially ignores Goku's plea by losing his pride to fuse with him and they both send ki blasts towards Super Buu. Super Buu easily reflects their attacks with his own ki blast. Super Buu then taunts them and Vegeta attacks Super Buu but both Saiyans were effortlessly beaten. After some quick persuasion, Vegeta finally agrees (after being told what fate had befallen his family). Then, Goku tells him right before they fuse that the fusion would be permanent and their bodies will be fused forever. Vegeta shouts at him, telling Goku that he should have told him that in the first place. The earrings merge them together and thus Vegito is born.
Once Vegito is formed, he tests out his new body. He then proves himself more than a match for Super Buu as he easily withstands an assault that would have almost killed the others separately. Vegito then overpowers Super Buu (with Gohan absorbed) in the ensuing battle, clearly showing that, even in his base form, the fused Saiyan is much more powerful than the mass-absorbed Super Buu.
In the anime, after proving his superiority to Super Buu, Vegito then decides to turn things up a notch, by increasing his power by transforming into a Super Saiyan, and calling himself "Super Vegito". Super Buu is impressed, but not convinced that Vegito is stronger than him. In the manga, however, he turns Super Saiyan immediately upon fusion.
Vegito then begins to completely dominate Super Buu, rendering his attacks useless. Super Buu then liquefies himself and goes into Vegito's body through his mouth. Once Super Buu is inside, he makes Vegito's muscles bulge tremendously and tries to take control of his body. Vegito then uses his energy to isolate Super Buu inside his body and beats him out. Super Buu becomes enraged because Vegito is making fun of him. His anger at this causes him to start breaking through dimensions, which, if left unchecked, could destroy the universe. Eventually, Vegito forces his way through Super Buu's shield and punches him in the face, which stops his attack.
With little left to lose, Super Buu turns Super Vegito into a coffee flavored jawbreaker. All seems lost until Candy-Vegito reveals that he is able to fly around and still attack physically, beating Super Buu in comical fashion and slicing off his antenna.
"Ten seconds. I'll give you that long to say your prayers, or whatever it is you need to do, then I'll blast you to hell."
Super Buu turns Vegito back to normal when realizing that there is no way to hurt Vegito because of his small size (despite the fact he could not hit him before anyway). After another beating, even Super Buu's regeneration is starting to fail him, and Vegito continues to dominate the fight, severing the antenna from Buu's head. Vegito then decides that it is time to end the battle once and for all, giving Super Buu ten seconds to prepare for death, and tells him to do whatever he feels like in that time period.
Unbeknownst to Buu, Vegito could have effortlessly destroyed him at any given moment, but had toyed around with him in order to manipulate Buu into absorbing him, which would allow Vegito to free his friends and family trapped in Buu's body. By purposely ignoring the antenna he cut off of Buu, Vegito deliberately gives the Majin the opportunity to absorb him. Super Buu quickly realizes the option, unaware Vegito had provided it on purpose, and when the fusion counts to ten, Super Buu manipulates the severed antenna and engulfs Vegito with it, who activated his barrier at the last moment to prevent himself from being integrated.
The seemingly-victorious Super Buu then goes on a rampage, and Vegito is left within him to free everyone. When he drops his barrier, however, the magic of the earrings wears off, and Vegito splits into Goku and Vegeta again. Both Saiyans are confused, Goku suggesting that the fusion wore off because of Super Buu's unusual "atmosphere". Irritated at having to combine with Kakarot for greater power rather than fighting and winning on his own, Vegeta crushes his Potara earring so they would not have to fuse again. Eventually feeling the same way, Goku follows suit.
When facing Kid Buu, Goku and Vegeta are given the option to become Vegito again, but Goku refuses, claiming that as a Saiyan, his pride keeps him from doing it, preferring to fight alone, and also citing that the fusion is permanent, and crushes the earring. Vegeta is impressed by this, saying it was "Spoken like a true Saiyan", and then crushes his earring as well, much to the chagrin of Shin and Old Kai.
Dragon Ball Super
"Future" Trunks Saga
Main article: "Future" Trunks Saga
"We're a merged fighter, a combination of Vegeta and Kakarot: Vegito. And here's something new; Vegito BLUEE!!!"
During the intense battle with Fused Zamasu, Goku uses all his power in his God Kamehameha to stop the Holy Wrath. Afterwards, Zamasu is damaged and the left side of his face begins to mutate, a prelude to his corrupted state. Goku again attacks Zamasu but Zamasu grievously injures him and he falls down after exhausting the rest of his energy with the use of his Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken technique. They realize Goku's actions only made Fused Zamasu become enraged and go out of control. Fused Zamasu aggressively powers up, and his right arm begins to mutate in a similar fashion as his face. Gowasu points out Fused Zamasu's potential weakness: while Future Zamasu's body is immortal, Goku Black's body is not, and there is no synergy between Fused Zamasu's soul and body. This can cause his mortal and immortal halves to conflict, creating openings, but Gowasu states that they will need large amounts of power to even deal any damage, prompting Goku to suggest fusing with Vegeta using Potara, though Vegeta is completely against the idea. Goku asks Gowasu how come he and Vegeta split before when he was told the effects of Potara are permanent, and Gowasu explains that fusion not involving a Supreme Kai will remain for one hour. Vegeta reluctantly accepts the Potara earring after realizing they have no other options and he and Goku each eat a Senzu Bean. Vegeta and Goku, with one hour left to finish things, put on the earrings, bringing about the second emergence of Vegito.
In the anime, after introducing himself briefly to Zamasu, Vegito transforms into Super Saiyan Blue, dubbing himself "Vegito Blue". Fused Zamasu fires a Holy Wrath at Vegito, who easily dissipates it, much to the corrupt God's shock. Vegito punches Fused Zamasu as he begins to once again lecture about gods and mortals, and Vegito challenges Fused Zamasu to squash him. The two then proceed to fight an intense battle, creating havoc and destruction in the surrounding area. The two fight to a stalemate, but Vegito is caught by a surprise punch and sent crashing to the ground. As Fused Zamasu prepares to finish him off with his God Split Cut, Vegito stabs him with his Spirit Stab technique. Vegito points out to Fused Zamasu that he is no longer immortal as he is permanently fused with a mortal, a mortal named "Son Goku". Fused Zamasu explains that that's what he wanted; in his eyes, Goku is everything wrong with both mortals and gods and by making Goku's body a part of his own, he will never forget the sins of mortals and the mistakes of gods. He then crushes Vegito's Spirit Sword and begins to power up even further, bulking up and growing larger in size.
As Vegito continues to pummel around Fused Zamasu, he tries to finish him off with a Final Kamehameha. Fused Zamasu emerges from the attack, and Vegito teleports directly to him to hit him with a god aura-cloaked punch, but as he does so, he immediately defuses back to Goku and Vegeta. Shin notes that it hasn't been an hour yet, and Gowasu explains since Vegito used all of his power into the Final Kamehameha, there was not enough left to sustain the fusion. Fused Zamasu takes the opportunity to knock Goku and Vegeta down together with the same punch from his powered-up mutated arm, sending the two Saiyans crashing to the ground beaten. Fused Zamasu is later thwarted by Future Trunks, who destroys his physical body, and Future Zeno, who erases his engulfing will.
In the manga, Vegito transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue (or "Blue Vegerot"), proclaiming that he is not a true god and is simply a mortal like him due to never officially having become a Supreme Kai - also boasting that Fused Zamasu's fusion will wear off in an hour too. Fused Zamasu angrily curses Gowasu for never telling him about the time limit of fusion. The two begin to fight but Vegito easily decimates Fused Zamasu, at one point slicing Fused Zamasu's hands off so fast that he does not notice. Fused Zamasu materializes many cubes of Katchin and throws them at Vegito, while at the same time Vegito prepares his Final Kamehameha in order to finish off Fused Zamasu, however before he can fire the fusion unexpectedly wears off and Fused Zamasu's Katchin hits Goku and Vegeta, knocking them to the ground.
Dragon Ball Heroes
Prison Planet Saga
Main article: Prison Planet Saga Goku and Vegeta find themselves struggling against the powerful Cumber. After Cumber powers up further and his restraining jacket is removed, Future Mai gives them the Potara, the two Saiyans fuse together.
In the anime, as he battles Cumber, the evil Saiyan comments on how amazed he is to find a worthy foe and after sending Vegito into a cliff side, the fused warrior uses the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken to fight evenly against him. Cumber fired up an even more powerful energy blast than before and Vegito responds by using the Final Kamehameha to counter it. After a struggle on both sides, the blasts cancel each other out through a section of the chain breaks. Cumber launches a Power Ball into the sky which causes him to transform into a Golden Great Ape and fires another blast at Vegito though he immediately splits back into Goku and Vegeta having used up all their power.
In the manga, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito battles Cumber, with the battle escalating when Cumber transforms into a Super Saiyan, after some time the two decide to get serious, with Vegito activating the Kaio-ken while Cumber turns into a Golden Great Ape. Knowing the Kaio-ken won't last, Vegito rushes to defeat Cumber, with the two ending up in a beam struggle - however Vegito runs out of power and splits back into Goku and Vegeta.
Universe Creation Saga
Main article: Universe Creation Saga
"Your experiment is a failure, Fu!"
With time running short and the Universe in jeopardy because of the Universe Tree, Goku and Vegeta opt to fuse into Vegito once again in order to face Fu. As the two fuse, Fu fire a blast of Cumber's evil Ki at them. However, it fails to take Vegito over due to the activation of his Saiyan Shield. Vegito combines his barrier with Super Saiyan Blue and fights Fu, demonstrating a clear advantage even after the latter uses his demonic Super Saiyan form. He later watches through Fu's monitors as the Universe Tree begins to crumble.
Vegito is blown back when Fu absorbs the black element of the Dark King and takes the title. Despite Fu's significant increase in power, Vegito Blue is still able to fight relatively evenly with him (dropping his Saiyan Shield form in the process due to Fu not using Cumber's energy any more), but is interrupted by the arrival of his Xeno counterpart, along with Demigra and Robelu. Vegito then watches his Xeno counterpart fight Fu.
After being trapped in Fu's special room, he watches Xeno Vegito fight the returned Broly but steps in when the berserker uses the Limit Breaker form, blocking one of his attacks and joining Xeno Vegito in battling him, both initially at a disadvantage. When Fu causes the Universe Tree to be enveloped in light, Vegito takes Broly out of the equation by grappling himself and Broly into the growing light, leaving Xeno Vegito free to confront Fu. Upon entering Fu's new universe, Vegito defuses back into Goku and Vegeta, both of whom are separated.
Afterwards in the manga's version of events, Xeno Vegito and Vegito, who now is utilising Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken, use their energy blades to cut down the Universe Tree. Vegito defuses back into Goku and Vegeta while Demigra entangles Fu using his chains of light, intending to seal him away in a Time Labyrinth. However in one final act, Fu reveals that the Saiyans were too late and creates his Pseudo Universe while the rest of those in the Crack of Time try to escape the sudden bright light.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes Special Episode
Main article: Push Forward to the Battlefield! Dragon Ball Heroes
In the special episode for Super Dragon Ball Heroes's 10th anniversary, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito appeared on Beat's card team during his battle with Note, and opened up the fight by clashing with Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta. When Gogeta's God Punisher damaged Vegito and Beat, both had their stamina restored by Yamcha and subsequently launched a Multiple Kamehameha to take Note down, winning the match.
- Raging Blast
Vegito is seen in a What-If Saga where his opponent is his Fusion Dance counterpart, Gogeta. If Vegito wins their battle, Gogeta wonders aloud how Vegito would explain himself to Chi-Chi and Bulma afterwards, leaving his Potara counterpart flabbergasted. Gogeta chuckles that they could be one big, happy family, but Vegito isn't so sure about that. If Gogeta wins their battle, Vegito declares his power is unbelievable and that he won't lose the rematch. Gogeta reminds him that they can't have their rematch immediately, knowing his fusion time is nearly up. Vegito jokes that because of his infinite fusion time (at the time Potara Fusion had not been given its one-hour time limit for mortals), he wins by default, with Gogeta replying that's not fair.
- Tenkaichi Tag Team
Vegito only appears in a What-If scenario as, during the Buu Saga, the player is able to choose if Goku and Vegeta are going to fuse through the Potara earrings or the Fusion Dance in order to defeat Super Buu after he absorbs Gohan.
- Manga and Anime
"Would you look at me? I'm settin' records."
Vegito is the strongest character within the original Dragon Ball manga, and one of the most powerful characters in the entire series overall. As a fused Saiyan, his power is a result of the combined power of Goku multiplied by Vegeta, amplified many times over. So the stronger each individual Saiyan is, the stronger the resulting fused warrior. This makes him one of the strongest fusions in the series alongside Fused Zamasu, Kefla, and Gogeta.
Super Vegito easily dominated Super Buu (who had absorbed Piccolo, Goten, Trunks and Ultimate Gohan), while Ultimate Gohan had previously struggled against Super Buu (who had absorbed Gotenks and Piccolo), with Vegito simply toying with the Majin and only using his feet to fight. In the anime, he was able to hold his own against Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed) even in his base form, although some of Buu's attacks managed to give him difficulty and mildly damaged him. But when he transformed into a Super Saiyan, he managed to completely dominate Buu, although when Buu tapped into his rage and let out a powerful Vice Shout, Vegito briefly needed to put in some effort to overcome his power. His power remains roughly the same even when his form changes, as demonstrated when Super Buu turns him into a candy. As a candy, he was able to completely evade Super Buu and was even able to damage him, though obviously not to the same extent as in his regular form. This gave Super Buu so much trouble that it forced him to turn Vegito back into his regular form.
In Battle of Gods, after losing a battle to the God of Destruction. Goku comments that fusing with Vegeta wouldn't even be enough to defeat Beerus.
When Goku and Vegeta fuse to battle Fused Zamasu, Vegito's power has increased by immense magnitudes from his first appearance because of Goku and Vegeta's individual growths as fighters, and both possessing the physical might of Super Saiyan God. In the manga, in his base form he is able to blast off half of Fused Zamasu, who initially mistakes him for a further transformation of Goku or Vegeta. Once using Super Saiyan Blue, Vegito showcased absolute dominance over Fused Zamasu, similar to his fight against Super Buu, cutting off both of Zamasu's arms without him even noticing it. Shin exclaims that his power already seems to be greater than Beerus'. However, Vegito defuses early due to his great power making the fusion unstable, with his fusion only lasting around a speculated 40 mins rather than the full hour. In the anime, while they appeared evenly matched at first, Vegito managed to overwhelm the fused god, even after Zamasu had further increased his power.
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes
In the manga, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito is able to battle Cumber's base and Super Saiyan forms, he then gets serious using the Kaio-ken to double his power to which Cumber responds by turning into a Golden Great Ape. Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken Vegito proves to be able to clash evenly with Golden Great Ape Cumber - the battle between the two causing the Prison Planet's sealing spell to begin coming undone - however the strain of both Super Saiyan Blue and Kaio-ken proves too much for Vegito - who defuses.
In the anime, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito struggles with Cumber in his Evil Saiyan state and has to utilize the Kaio-ken to double his power. However, even though he didn't appear to have an advantage, Cumber responds by turning into a Golden Great Ape and then blasts him with a mouth blast. But while Vegito proved strong enough to block the attack, Vegito's power was too great to hold the fusion and it ended prematurely before the battle could finish.
Fu is uninterested in fighting Super Saiyan Blue Vegito based on his performance on the Prison Planet. However to Fu's shock, Vegito proves more than a match for Super Fu, prompting Fu to note that he had grown stronger than before. In the manga Fu states that if Goku and Vegeta hadn't already used up most of their energy against Janemba, Fu would have been in danger against Vegito. In the anime Fu is easily outmatched by Vegito, who had demanded he use his true power. Against Super Full Power Saiyan 4 Limit Breaker Broly, he and his Xeno counterpart are initially overwhelmed, but Vegito later proves to be able to handle Broly on his own, grappling him into the Universe Tree's light with minimal effort.
In the game, Vegito as a Super Saiyan Blue is able to outmatch Super Saiyan Cumber.
- Video Games
In the Extra Story Mission of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, when a significantly stronger Dabura appears during the battle of Super Vegito and Super Buu, Dabura sides with Buu to try and kill Vegito, however Vegito opts to power up more and despite Dabura's significant power increase Vegito is still able to hold them both off quite easily and force Dabura to retreat, shocking an observing Elder Kai, who says Vegito is far more powerful than he actually imagined.
In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Vegito himself states that he is possibly stronger than Beerus when facing off against him. Jiren also states that Vegito, in his Super Saiyan Blue state, is equal to him in power.
In the Tournament of Time in Dragon Ball Legends, Vegito (from the Buu Saga) encounters Goku and Vegeta (from Resurrection ‘F’) after the two have just finished fighting one another. Super Saiyan Vegito is able to beat the non-full power Super Saiyan Blue Goku, and when faced with Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta together, the match becomes even.
During a rare summon animation in Dragon Ball Legends he is shown overpowering Broly with ease.
- Statements by authors and guidebooks
A 1995 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump comparing Gogeta to Vegito stated that Gogeta was stronger than Vegito and thus would defeat Vegito in a fight that took less than thirty minutes, but Vegito would win in a longer battle.
The resulting warrior from Potara fusion is more powerful than the equivalent Fusion Dance result, thus Vegito is stronger than his counterpart Gogeta.
If Vegito (from the Majin Buu Saga) were to fight Gogeta (from Fusion Reborn), Vegito would win if the fight was long, but would lose a short battle.
In his original Dragon Ball Z appearance, Vegito's power is far greater than Goku as a Super Saiyan 3 and wonders if Vegito's strength is perhaps greater than a Super Saiyan 4 (超サイヤ人４以上の強さかも！？).

"Call me Super Vegito!"
Vegito is referred to as Super Vegito (or "Super Vegerot" in the English manga).
Vegito is able to transform into a Super Saiyan,As Super Vegito, he gains a slight increase in muscle mass (probably from power of Super Vegeta), bluish-green eyes, very defined golden hair and eyebrows and a golden aura. Because of the intensity of his power, his aura also exhibits sparks around it (similar to Super Saiyan 2). Once transformed, his power soared to unimaginable heights: Vegito was well-beyond Buu's abilities to defeat and absolutely dominated Super Buu (w/ Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Piccolo absorbed) in battle. He hardly exerts himself in battle. Vegito's power in this form alone makes him is undeniably the most powerful character in Dragon Ball Z manga. It is implied by Old Kai that Super Vegito could have destroyed Kid Buu with little effort as he did with Super Buu (w/ Gohan absorbed).
"I'm no ordinary candy, I'm a jawbreaker! The strongest piece of candy there is!"
Vegito is turned into a coffee-flavored jawbreaker by Super Buu so that he can consume him, but Vegetto is still able to fight as a small candy. Not only does Vegito retain all of his power, but he is also extremely fast and far too small for Super Buu to hit; thus using an original attack to shoot in Super Buu's mouth and out the back of his throat, unscathed. In the dub, he calls it his "Pinball Attack". However, while this small size gives him a colossal advantage in battle, he is not invulnerable and is unable to use any of his special ki attacks.

In the What-if Saga of Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, Vegito gets to fight his Fusion Dance counterpart, Gogeta. In this What-if fight, the English dub voice of Vegito, has Vegeta's voice more pronounced than Goku's, whereas Gogeta's voice has Goku's voice being more pronounced than Vegeta's. When Vegito wins their battle, declaring the Old Kai's talk about Potara Fusion's greater power being right after all, he is subsequently dumbfounded when Gogeta points out he would have to explain himself to Chi-Chi and Bulma afterwards (since at the time, Potara fusion had not been given its one-hour mortal time limit). Gogeta jokes that they could all be one big, happy family, while Vegito isn't so sure Chi-Chi and Bulma would go along with that idea.

- The name Vegito (ベジット Bejitto) is derived from a portmanteau of the Japanese kana spellings of the names Vegeta (ベジータ Bejīta) and Kakarot (カカロット Kakarotto). The most common romanization of the character's name in Japan is Vegetto, a portmanteau of Vegeta and Kakarotto. Because the spelling Kakarot is used in Viz's English manga instead of Kakarotto, the name became Vegerot. The spelling Vegito is used in the English dub of the anime by Funimation, using the last two letters of "Kakarot" reversed, but inconsistent because of the presence of the "i". In the English dub of Dragon Ball Z Kai, however, the spelling that is used is "Vegetto".
- Old Kai states that a hypothetical Potara fusion of Goku and Gohan would not need to turn Super Saiyan to defeat Super Buu. In the manga, Vegito transforms into a Super Saiyan as soon as he appears. In the anime, he fights Buu for some time before he finally transforms. In his base form, Vegito still outclasses Super Buu and even manages to deflect a planet-shattering bomb, thus making it clear (in the anime) that he could have beaten Buu without even transforming into a Super Saiyan.
- While the Japanese and Funimation dubs have Vegito talk with Vegeta and Goku's respective voices overlapping each other simultaneously, in the Ocean dub and the German dub, Vegito speaks with only one voice, sounding as medium pitch between Goku and Vegeta.
- The fusion using the Potara Earrings was supposed to be permanent. Yet, when Vegito is inside Buu, Goku and Vegeta separate. Goku credits this to being a result of all the foul masses in the magical atmosphere of Buu's body. Shin also confirms that the Namekian Dragon Balls can in fact undo the fusion as well if need be.
- It is revealed in Dragon Ball Super that fusions not involving a Supreme Kai will remain for an hour, explaining Goku and Vegeta's sudden fission in Buu's body.
- In the Funimation dub of Dragon Ball Z, Vegito's theme is "Vegeta vs. Goku" (composed by Bruce Faulconer).
- In the early Funimation dub, Candy Vegito's voice was high pitched; this was changed to make him sound like his normal self in the remastered series.
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Vegito has three different Skill Set variations, one with Vegito's own moves in-game, the second one having some of Goku's moves, and the third having Vegeta's moves.
- This is carried over into Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, but SSGSS Vegito only has one Skill Set containing his own moves.
- In the Future Trunks Saga of Dragon Ball Super, Vegito is still wearing the same outfit he wore during his debut in the Fusion Saga despite Vegeta wearing a different outfit since the last time they fused.
- Despite the Potara earring fusion lasting only an hour, Vegito's fusion was significantly cut short in his battle against Fused Zamasu due to his immense power similar to Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta in his battle against Omega Shenron. Both are similar in that they were about to deal the final blow to the villain before defusing.
- In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors and Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit Goku's CPU's outfit resembles Vegito's outfit.
- In Dragon Ball Super, Fused Zamasu addresses Vegito as Son Goku. At the same time, Vegito refers to Goku in third person when talking to Fused Zamasu.
- A hidden audio file for Xenoverse 2 shows that Vegito can planned to possess the Super Saiyan 2 transformation in the game. In the hidden audio file, he says, "Guess I'm Super Vegito 2 now!" There is also a hidden audio file in Xenoverse 2 that suggests Vegito was intended to use the Kaio-ken.
