Akira Toriyama Reveals Why Vegeta Couldn’t Reach Super Saiyan 3 in Dragon Ball

No matter how many mesmerizing moments Vegeta has gotten in the show. Technically, he never surpassed Goku – which is undoubtedly unacceptable for the fans. Some believe that the creator doesn’t like him while others are waiting for him to get a moment in the forthcoming series. Whatever the reason may be, even though with a fanbase as big as that of Goku, Vegeta still couldn’t surpass him whereas Gohan did. In this post, we will be putting out the creator of Dragon Ball, Akira Toriyama’s words on Why Vegeta Couldn’t Reach Super Saiyan 3 (SSJ3) in Dragon Ball Z. The question has been asked so many times to Akira Toriyama, and as it may seem, we finally have an answer.

Super Saiyan 3 Transformation was unlocked by Goku during the Majin Buu saga. At that time, it was understandable that the creator wanted to give the limelight to Goku. However, in the Battle of Gods, only Goku got to be the Super Saiyan God. Moreover, In Resurrection of ‘F’ Frieza, Vegeta finally got the screentime he deserved and transformed into Super Saiyan God, and he really stood up to fans’ expectations. However, Super Saiyan 3 was skipped. Fans never actually got to see Vegeta in his Super Saiyan 3 form, which is quite an unfortunate thing.

As per Akira Toriyama the creator of “Dragon Ball”, Super Saiyan 3 is his one of the favorite transformations, and he’d really love to have Vegeta attaining the form. However, they have a lack of means. Unlike Other forms, Super Saiyan 3 has a long hair, and drawing/ animating that is a real ordeal! It does not just cost much to them but it also is too time-consuming for the animators, i.e, resulting in poorly animated scenes that we got to see in Battle of Gods movie. So the producers wanted to have one episode of Dragon Ball Z every Sunday, no matter what. Sp, the animators and story writers had to leave the idea of including Vegeta Super Saiyan 3.
