Does Vegeta Fear Worms?
The Evidence is Unclear
We’ve all seen him fearlessly face some of the most powerful forces in the universe and yet a lot of Dragonball Z fans have asked the same question: is Vegeta scared of worms?
The jury is still out on this one. While there aren’t any direct references to Vegeta being afraid of worms, there are a few hints that suggest this might be the case.
Let’s take a look at some of the evidence:
- Vegeta Primes Evil Plan: In one episode, Vegeta devises a plan to distract Piccolo so he can use the power of the Namekian Dragon Balls. The plan involves a jar full of worms!
- Vegeta’s Singular Focus: Vegeta is usually single mindedly focused on becoming more powerful; it’s possible that worms remind him of a more humble lifestyle.
- Vegeta’s Lack of Smile: In one image, Vegeta is shown holding an earthworm. While everyone around him is smiling, Vegeta’s expression seems to convey a certain discomfort.
At the end of the day, it’s impossible to know for sure if Vegeta is scared of worms. The evidence is simply too ambiguous.
There’s no doubt that Vegeta is a powerful warrior and thus it can be assumed that he will not let his fear (if he has any) stand in his way. Regardless, it’s a fun notion to ponder and hopefully the series creators can confirm or deny the rumour once and for all.
