The mighty Prince of the Saiyans has certainly had an interesting life thus far, with his body going through a lot of wear and tear. But due to those Saiyan genetics that prevents Saiyans from showing their age, it’s hard to work out exactly how old is Vegeta?
Vegeta was 30 years old when he came to Earth to fight Goku and was 48 years old at the end of Dragon Ball Super. But his body is 54 at the end of Super due to spending 6 years in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
