If you listen closely during this scene, you can hear the sounds of millions of Vegeta fans whining about it.
I actually really appreciate this scene as a Vegeta fan. It shows how much credence Vegeta puts in the Saiyan legends—how seriously he takes them. This can potentially illuminate an important aspect of Vegeta’s psychology, namely, his obsession with being/becoming a Super Saiyan, among other things. (For further evidence of Vegeta’s respect for Saiyan legend, look no further than his expression of hope when Goku finally arrives to fight Frieza; after completely losing his will to fight, Vegeta suddenly heartens a bit, taunting Frieza with Goku’s power in spite of his own distaste for Goku).
In some ways, Vegeta’s fascination with Saiyan legend likens to the faith of an intensely religious person. Here’s where it gets interesting, though. To take the religion analogy further, Vegeta’s obsession with becoming the legendary warrior personally reveals that his God is himself, or, that he wishes to make himself God. Given Vegeta’s characteristic narcissism, this makes a little more sense than it should.
Summary: Vegeta treats Saiyan legend as sacred. This affects his psychology and person negatively because of the nature of the legend itself and how Vegeta relates himself to it.
I could say more, but that would be overdoing it for now.
I’m the same way. I think it makes Vegeta a more nuanced character.
But lots of people want DBZ to just be musclebound badassery.
Whoa, just want to say, nice break down flamingpoetica.

Eh?!?!? Two things I like about myself, huh?
Well, what a nice project this is. :)
If I had to choose… Wow, it says something about me that this is actually pretty hard for me, doesn’t it? Hmm… 1) I’m grateful for my appreciation of literature and 2) though I’d still like to improve this about myself, I like that I can admit when I’ve messed up, done something stupid, made a mistake, or just… been plain wrong.
Thank you for asking! :D
