The show ran over three decades about the story of a young boy becoming the strongest fighter in the universe. Dragon Ball Super is the successor of this mind-blowing Shonen series. However, there was another sequel to the original series called Dragon Ball GT. However, the GT series was non-canon because Toriyama didn’t work on this series.

Therefore, fans also want to know how old is Vegeta in the “Dragon Ball Super “.
Who is Prince Vegeta?
Vegeta is the eldest son of King Vegeta, ruler of Saiyans, making him their prince. At a really early age, Vegeta got into the Frieza Army, as Frieza had dominance over the Planet Vegeta. Child Vegeta and Raditz were sent on a mission on a distant planet along with Nappa. Further, they received the call to come back to their homeland. But Vegeta ignored the command and planned to tell him not to get the message. But in reality, the message was to gather all Saiyans to Planet Vegeta and eliminate their race. However, Vegeta and his group surviving that attack were made warriors for Frieza Army.
Vegeta knew about Frieza destroying his planet. But he remained quiet about it because he knew Frieza’s powers. Thus, he was waiting for the opportunity to take on his revenge. When Vegeta got a report from the dying Raditz about the Dragon Balls, he planned to visit Earth to grant immortality with them and defeat Frieza. However, he lost to Goku, another Saiyan, and also from a “Lower Class”. Then Vegeta went into training to get stronger. One day, while on his training, he gets to the Planet Namek to kill Frieza, but his attempts were unsuccessful, and he also died. After Goku defeated Frieza, Vegeta and everyone who died on Namek were brought back to life.
Since then, Vegeta started living on life and again went into training to attain Super Saiyan form. While his training, he got closer to Bulma and even fathered a son, Trunks, with her. Soon, he had another challenge ahead of him Androids and Cell. After the events of the Cell saga, Vegeta grew closer to his family and even began training his son. But after hearing his rival, Goku, and his sons taking part in the World Martial Arts Tournament, Vegeta also plans to take part along with Trunks. But during the tournament, he was put under the control of Babidi. Later he frees himself from the control and even sacrifices himself to protect the Earth.
But after Majin Buu wreaking havoc on Earth, Vegeta got another chance from King Yennma to stop Buu(but he was still dead). But he again fails, but Supreme Kai saves him and Vegeta, even resurrects Vegeta and giving potara earrings to Vegeta. Even after fusing with Goku to become Vegito, they fail to defeat Majid Buu. Finally, Goku takes down Kid Buu(the strongest form of Buu) with a Spirit Bomb. After the events of the Buu saga, Vegeta began spending more time with his family. He even got furious when the God of Destruction, Beerus, slapped his wife, Bulma.
Currently, Vegeta is training alongside Goku under the guidance of Whis, Berrus’s assistant and teacher. Vegeta became a caring father to Trunks and his newly-born daughter, Bula. He is no more a villain, but a hero who fights to protect his new home, Earth. He got softer and caring, although he still has some of his previous traits: prideful, stubborn, and egoist. But he still challenges Goku and competes against him to get stronger than him.
How old is Vegeta in the Dragon Ball Super series?
Vegeta was 48-years-old during the end of Dragon Ball Super. Vegeta first appeared when dying Raditz informed him about the Dragon Balls and Goku. Back then, he was 29-year-old. According to the warning, Vegeta came to Earth after a year, so he was 30 when he faced Goku for the first time. Then, Vegeta again appears on Namek, where he dies by Frieza’s hand, then Dende resurrects him on Earth, and he starts living there. After two years on Earth, he develops a relationship with Bulma and even became a father to a son. During Trunk’s birth, Vegeta was around 33-years-old. When the androids and Cell attacks, he was age 35 during that attack.
During Cell’s havoc, Vegeta went into hyperbolic time chamber with his son, Future Trunks. He spends five years training inside the chamber, making him 40. But in the real world, he only spent few hours in the chamber, making him still 35. The events of the Majin Buu saga take place seven years after defeating Cell. Thus, Vegeta was around 42 when he died and again came back to life in the series. Then Lord Beerus comes after two years since defeating Kid Buu, making Vegeta a 46-year-old man. The events of Dragon Ball Super take place over a time period of two years. Thus, by the end of the Super series, our beloved Prince of Saiyan was 48-years-old.
Vegeta was 48-years-old during the end of Dragon Ball Super. However, he didn’t look like a man in his 40s, then let me remind you, as our Prince of Saiyans once said. The Saiyans are a race of warriors. Thus they grow fast, as Goku hit a major growth spurt in the first series. After Saiyan reaches adulthood, their growth slows down. Therefore, even though their age is growing each year but their physical growth is really slow compared to humans.
