Throwback Thursdays: Bulma and Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z | Lady Geek Girl and Friends
And while the ladies of DBZ do fine on their own, you actually really Bulma and Vegeta certainly don't get along when they first meet, either. The first time Vegeta meets Bulma is in chapter , the chapter right before Zarbon is defeated by Vegeta. This is also the chapter where. In Dragon Ball Z, does Goku ever meet Bardock? In Dragon Ball Super, how did Bulma meet Jaco? Bulma doesn’t meet Vageta in Dragon Ball, she meets him in Dragon Ball Z when she travels to Namek with 10 year old Gohan and Krillen in search of the Dragon Balls.
Krillin had been shown to have a crush on Android 18 during the Android Saga. And Android 18 had shown at least some flirtation towards him.
Krillin liked her enough that when he was sent to destroy her, he instead let her go. After the Cell Saga, he even used a wish to revive her brother, and if I recall to remove the bombs in their bodies.
So after the seven year time skip, it wasn't that big of a surprise that they ended up together. Even now in Super, when Krillin and Android 18 have been shown together, or separately but talking about each other, there is a lot of genuine affection.
Heck, one of the slice-of-life episodes had Android 18 trying to use the Dragon Balls to find the perfect gift for her husband. During the Great Saiyaman Saga, Gohan meets Videl, and much of those episodes had them spending time together. She even became a Great Saiyaman II. She also learns that Gohan was the one who was at the Cell Games along with her father, Mr.
We see Gohan and Videl's developing mutual crush on each other, so their getting married and having a kid at the end of Dragon Ball Z was no shocker.
And in Super, Gohan has been displayed as being the perfect husband and father, who likes being with his family and would even sacrifice good job opportunities if it meant he'd have to be away from them for too long. But Bulma and Vegeta? There was no lead up to that. No indication or foreshadowing. During the Saiyan Saga, Vegeta was a guy who came to Earth with the intention of murdering all of Bulma's friends and destroying her planet which would in turn destroy her.
Several of her friends died during that battle to prevent this, and Goku was left badly injured in the hospital. Vegeta even would have killed Goku's son, who was only like five years old at the time.
Then in the Frieza arc, Vegeta remained the scary murderous villain that he was before. Vegeta was very much a dick out for himself while on Namek, and he would not have thought twice about murdering Gohan, Krillin, or Bulma if it furthered his goals or if they stood between him and a goal. The only reason Gohan and Krillin were kept alive was because he was aware that he might need some help against Frieza's minions. He then comes to Earth after the Frieza saga, but he was still very much a bad guy who was not at all repentant for having killed a bunch of innocent Namekians, and having been responsible for the ordering of the deaths of several of Earth's fighters.
Vegeta was not at all apologetic about any of that. But for some reason, Bulma decides to let him stay at her place, despite in the previous Saiyan and Frieza saga she was terrified of guys like him. Then there was the three year skip as they trained for the upcoming androids, and during that time Bulma and Vegeta had a baby. But during the Android Arc, there is never any indication given of how or why that happened. The two share almost no screen time together it's been a while, I don't remember exactly.
And Vegeta still during the Android Arc shows himself to be a villain who is only fighting not because he cares about protecting anybody, but just because he wants to prove his Super Saiyan strength.
Vegeta and Bulma's Relationship Never Made Much Sense to Me : dbz
She had more screen time with any of them than she did with Vegeta if I recall. It was never really shown at all in the series how or why Bulma and Vegeta ended up together. It was just sort of skipped over, and none of the other characters treat it as weird that she had a baby with a guy who was still evil at the time. Flash forward to Super, which is after I'd expected he'd have mellowed out after his sacrifice during the Majin Buu arc, but his first shown episode of Vegeta's is during a family vacation that he clearly doesn't want to be there for and was only doing to keep a promise to Trunks.
He acts disgusted when Bulma shows affection towards him, and then he leaves in the middle and Bulma and Trunks just act happy that he'd stayed that long. But Whis rewinds time to give Goku another chance to kill Frieza and Bulma explains what happened to Vegeta. In preparation for the Universe 7 and 6 God of Destruction Martial Arts Tournament, Bulma defends Vegeta for being mocked by Beerus and kisses his cheek, which he says he hates because she always does it to surprise him.
Vegeta also warns Jaco to not do anything suspicious with Bulma, who teases him for being jealous. Vegeta later admits to Goku that it's Bulma's feistiness that makes him attracted to her because Saiyans naturally prefer strong-willed women. Jaco tells Bulma she could have led a different life but Bulma counters she is happy being married to Vegeta and the mother of his son.
During the tournament, Bulma worries about Vegeta growing cocky but cheers for him until he is defeated in his third match. At the victory party for Universe 7, Vegeta continually warns Bulma to watch how she speaks towards Beerus so he won't get angry again. Days later, she tells Vegeta that Trunks accidentally left with Monaka, and Vegeta tells her it wouldn't have happened if she hadn't ordered the supplies and she accuses him of blaming her and he takes back what he said.
What episode does Vegeta and Bulma meet?
She then orders him to go pick Trunks up even though he is angry to go with Jaco. When Future Trunks arrives to escape from Goku Black, Vegeta and Bulma tend to him and offer to help save his timeline. Seeing Future Trunks causes Trunks to suspect the latter is his long lost brother and his parents were in a "scandal" but his parents sort this all out. Vegeta is enraged when he learns Future Bulma has been killed and vows to never forgive Goku Black.
The first battle with Goku Black ends in failure and Bulma panics when she sees Vegeta badly injured. Bulma decides to go to the future with them to help even though Vegeta is against it. After Goku Black's defeat, Bulma cheers for Vegeta as Universe 7 and 6 have a friendly baseball game but is dismayed when he beats Yamcha due to having misunderstood the rules of the game. Shortly after, Bulma informs Vegeta that she is pregnant and he drops training altogether to take care of her.
He grows protective of her during the pregnancy and keeps an eye on her to ensure nothing happens to her and the baby. As the Tournament of Power is set to commence, Vegeta refuses to participate at first because he is eager to see his daughter be born. When the baby, Bulla, is born, Vegeta is swollen with instant love for his daughter and dotes on the baby, much to Bulma's delight. They later get into a debate over their daughter's name; Vegeta wants to name her Eschalot but Bulma decides on Bulla, which everyone else prefers and Vegeta eventually settles on it because he says it's not a bad name after all.
Vegeta then agrees to participate in order to not only defend the universe but to protect his family from erasure.
In the final phase of the tournament, Vegeta fights Toppo, who discards all his attachments and beliefs to become a God of Destruction and survive the tournament.
Vegeta finds this ludicrous and, thinking of his family, declares he will never discard anything for strength, giving him the willpower to overpower Toppo.
Afterwards, Vegeta is losing his fight against Jiren and Vegeta frequently thinks of Bulma and their children, which fuels him with desire to continue the fight. He even shouts that someone unemotional like Jiren can never understand the desire to protect something. When Vegeta ultimately loses, he feels tremendous guilt for failing to protect his family and sheds tears while apologizing to Bulma.

This angers Vegeta as Bulma laughs at the realization.

Trivia Vegeta and Bulma are the most popular canon couple in the Dragon Ball franchise.Future Bulma Meets Vegeta Again One Last Time
Their relationship has the most development, from arch enemies to lovers to husband and wife. According to Toriyama, there were initially no plans for Vegeta and Bulma to end up together because he planned to end Dragon Ball Z after the Frieza Saga but due to the show's popularity, he introduced Trunks and selected Vegeta as his father to explain his Saiyan heritage.
In regards to Trunks' mother, Toriyama chose Bulma as an abrupt candidate due to her and Vegeta having similarities in their attitudes. This decision would cause shock and amusement among the fans when Future Trunks revealed his parentage, becoming one of the most acclaimed shocking moments in the series. Bulma is the only person capable of keeping control over Vegeta and appeasing his temper, shocking everyone who knows them personally.
Despite their rocky moments and frequent arguments, they have the most romantic and intimate moments of all the canon couples. They are known to be the only couple with an unconventional relationship; they firstly became lovers, secondly had a child, and thirdly got married.
While it is apparent that they were unmarried at the time of their first child's birth, the extent of their relationship at that time is uncertain. In the Japanese version, it was stated to have been a one night stand, whereas in the American dub, it was simply stated to have been a short-lived affair. The first time Vegeta openly admitted his love for Bulma was as a Majin which is supposed to make one evil. Vegeta later confirmed, during the Tournament of Power, that his motivation to push his limits is his desire to protect his family; when told no attachments lead to absolute strength, Vegeta rejected this and vowed to never discard his family for anything and he went as far as to shed tears of guilt when he lost against Jiren.
After the Frieza saga, Bulma was no longer afraid of Vegeta, who later became fearful of her temper. Even though Vegeta was indirectly responsible for aiding many of the enemies and caused more harm than good to the Z Fighters, his efforts to redeem himself have led Bulma to forgive him each time.
In the game, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Vegeta refers to Bulma as a fine wife aside from her temper but this embarrasses him as he speaks to the player. He also states the one battle he has no defense against is a tirade from an Earth woman, specifically Bulma.
Vegeta and Bulma refer to each other as terrible cooks, as Bulma says Vegeta has never cooked in his life whereas Vegeta retorts Bulma is worse than him and he dreads eating her meals when she does cook.
