#03: Vegeta

We all know Vegeta as the lovable Saiyan anti-hero from Dragonball Z, but how does he fare in DBZ: Legendary Super Warriors?

First thing to note is, besides Cont.Punch and Cont.Kick, Vegeta has no ‘damage’-type attacks. If Vegeta and Nappa could use the ‘Tail’ card, they would share a ‘damage-type’ attack, but strangely only Kid Gohan is able to use the card.

– Galick Gun (beam, 17cc, 20pow, 100acc)
– Destructo Disk (beam, 18cc, 25pow, 95acc)

Super Saiyan and above
– Big Bang Attack (beam, 23cc, 30pow, 90acc)
– Final Flash (beam, 28cc, 40pow, 95acc)
– Sup.Saiyan-2 (item, 7cc, Ki Up, 100acc)
– Sup.Saiyan-3 (item, 7cc, Str Up, 100acc)

Majin Vegeta only
Suicide (beam, 31cc, 70pow, 90acc)

However, on the beam side of things, Vegeta has many energy based attacks. These include Galick Gun and Destructo Disk. Destructo Disk does more damage but only has 80% accuracy compared to 100% accuracy of Galick Gun, so use with caution.

Super Saiyan Vegeta has access two new attacks. Big Bang Attack which has 90% accuracy and the less-common Final Flash which has 95% accuracy. Again, it is up to the player whether to sacrifice accuracy or go for the more reliable options.

Finally, Majin Vegeta has another new move, Suicide which has 90% accuracy. This move, while seemingly powerful, is guaranteed to lower your health to a single point. Visible on the screen as a single solid bar of colour. This is therefore a dangerous strategy and should only be used as a last resort, or supplemented with healing cards.

Overall Vegeta is one of the best characters in the game, with a wide array of beam attacks suitable for any occasion. Team efforts are rare, with only Destructo Disk users such as Krillin and Freeza being any use, since Vegeta’s attacks are all his own. His attacks are generally less accurate than Goku’s, but do a fair amount of damage.
