Vegeta is an arrogant and formidable Saiyan prince who travels across the galaxy to achieve immortality through the magic of the Dragon Balls. The Saiyans, although hovering precariously on the verge of extinction, are a powerful race bent on conquering Earth and obliterating all forms human life. Though small in stature, Vegeta is a ferocious warrior capable of increasing his power to unfathomable levels. He is ambitious, cruel, and supremely confident that no other warrior in existence can match his sheer strength and appalling brutality on the field of battle.
The Saiyan warrior Raditz was originally sent to Earth on a mission to locate his long lost brother, Goku. Ill-tempered and impatient, Raditz cannot understand how his brother has thus far failed to conquer the pathetically weak human race. Although linked by birth, Raditz and Goku couldnt be any more different. Goku is an honorable warrior and a champion of the people, but Raditz never amounted to anything more than Vegetas villainous henchman. During his bone-crushing battle with Goku and the Z-Fighters, Raditz reveals that two of his fellow Saiyans will arrive on Earth in a years time and begin systemically destroying the world as we know it. Most importantly, Raditz is solely responsible for transmitting the legend of the Dragon Balls to Prince Vegeta - a dark day indeed in the history of humanity!
Nappa is a muscular Saiyan who lands on Earth along with Vegeta. He quickly becomes embroiled in vicious battles with Piccolo, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu. Despite being physically imposing, Nappa is not particularly bright and often becomes careless during battles - a trait that could ultimately lead to his downfall.
