That is, after all, a question that many new and old fans have asked over the years. Look no further in the future because we have the answers to your questions about Vegeta's age. So, first, let me give you a quick rundown of Prince Vegeta's Dragon Ball history.

In-Universe 7, Vegeta is the Prince of all Saiyans. Because he didn't like taking orders from anyone, Prince Vegeta was one of four Saiyans who survived the explosion of his home planet, Planet Vegeta. Goku, Raditz, and Nappa were the other three Saiyans who made it out alive. Broly, however, was the fifth Saiyan to survive Planet Vegeta's explosion, as depicted in the recent Dragon Ball Super Broly Movie.

However, we learned from Toriyama's other Dragon Ball films that there are more Saiyans than previously thought. Broly's father, Paragus, Tarble, Vegeta's brother, and Turles are all Saiyans. Not to mention universe 6 with Cabba, Caulifla, and Kale, but we're concentrating on universe 7 for the time being.

We all know that Frieza was responsible for the Saiyan race's extinction by destroying Planet Vegeta. Vegeta was a villain from Dragon Ball Z who came to Earth to kill Goku because he failed to conquer the planet and killed Raditz. After a long and arduous battle between Goku and Vegeta in Dragon Ball, Goku spared Vegeta's life,  as a result, Vegeta and Goku became best friends.

How Old Is Vegeta?

According to Dragon Balls enthusiast at Shonen Road, Vegeta was 52 years old when the Dragon Ball Z anime series ended on January 31, 1996. Vegeta was 57 years old when the tournament of power ended and Dragon Ball Super ended. The age of Vegeta in Dragon Ball GT is quite different, but we'll get to that later.

So, let's get down to business and see if Vegeta's age is correct. Vegeta was born on Planet Vegeta at the age of 732. Fast forward seven years and Vegeta is on a mission far away on a distant planet, while his own planet is being destroyed. Vegeta, believe it or not, was only seven years old when his entire population was wiped out.

As a result, since his father died along with the planet, he was automatically made Prince of All Saiyans.  However, at the time, that was only true for Goku, Raditz, and Nappa because they were the only ones who had survived. Regardless, time passes, and Vegeta continues to work for Frieza for many years. So, at the age of 761, Dragon Ball Z begins, and Nappa, Raditz, and Vegeta are dispatched to conquer planets under Frieza's command.

Vegeta was 29 years old at the time. After a few years, he and Nappa visit planet Earth for the first time. They had their crazy talk and their crazy battle, but time passed and they all traveled to Planet Namek, where Goku battles Frieza, and so on.

So here we are, at the start of Dragon Ball Z, at the age of 764. Vegeta joined the Z fighters and for the first time wore a pink shirt with the word "Badman" on the back. Future Trunks also arrives, and Vegeta begins his training to become a Super Saiyan not long after.

Vegeta’s Age At The Beginning Of Dragon Ball Z

Vegeta was 34 years old when Trunks was born. After that, Vegeta, Goku, and the other z fighters battle Perfect Cell and the Androids a year later. Vegeta visited the Hyperbolic Time Chamber twice during the Cell Sage series. He'd be 36 years old at that point. We will, however, return to his actual age when he emerged from the time chamber.

Dragon Ball Super Battle Of Gods

Time passes, and eleven years later, at the age of 778, God Beerus arrives on Earth to fight Goku. Vegeta was 45 years old at the start of the Battle of Gods. Nonetheless, Vegeta began training under Whis a year later, and Frieza was resurrected and defeated in Resurrection F.

Then there was the tournament between universes 6 and 7, in which Vegeta met another Saiyan named Caba for the first time. They had to fight Zamasu, also known as Goku Black, later in the Dragon Ball Super series. During the course of everything that was going on, Vegeta's youngest child Bula was born, and the tournament of power was held. Let's fast forward to the year 784, the end of Dragon Ball Z. Vegeta has reached the age of 52. So, at the end of Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta is that old.

The Hyperbolic Time Chamber

We must now consider the fact that Vegeta has been in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber not once, not twice, but five times. For those who don't know, one earth day equals one full year in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.

If you do the math, he went twice during the Cell saga games, which equals two years. Nonetheless, Vegeta went into the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for three days before the tournament with Universe 6's upcoming fight.

Vegeta will have to stay in the time chamber for another three years. Vegeta went in one time in the Dragon Ball Super Series when they were fighting Zamasu, but it was only for a half-day.

In the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, that would equal 6 months. Finally, Vegeta spent an hour in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, which is roughly 15 days, before the tournament of power began.

With that said, Vegeta is 52 years old, but when you factor in the time he spent in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, he is 57 years old and a half, as reported by experts from Shonen Road. After Dragon Ball Super, that would also be his final age.

Vegeta was 34 years old when Dragon Ball Z began, and he was 45 years old when the Battle of God began. Vegeta was 52 years old at the end of Dragon Ball Z after the Buu Saga. If we add up all of Vegeta's time in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, he'd be 57 1/2 years old at the end of Dragon Ball Super.
