Vegeta has always been a fan-favorite character within the Dragon Ball franchise, so it's easy to feel the disappointment when in any given storyline, the prince of all saiyans is the punching bag for many villains along the way. With Goku being the one to defeat Moro, it seems as though the same might be the case with Gas of the Heeters during the Granolah The Survivor Arc, as Vegeta and his newest transformation in Ultra Ego might not be enough to win the day.
Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of Dragon Ball Super's manga, Chapter 85, you might want to steer clear as we'll be diving into some serious spoiler territory.
For the most part, Vegeta is fighting against Gas in the latest chapter in a bid to give Goku more time to better understand his power in Ultra Instinct, and while he was successful in buying time for his rival, the Saiyan Prince couldn't defeat the strongest member of the Heeters. While the Prince of All Saiyans did note that Gas' attacks were "giving him fuel" to evolve his latest form and increase his power level, he still lost all the same, with his form burning out and stealing his consciousness from under him.
Vegeta has lost more than a few times throughout both Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Z, though the next movie is set to see the Saiyan Prince train alongside Goku and Broly which might finally give him a leg-up when all is said and done. While Ultra Ego hasn't been confirmed to appear in the movie, we're sure that we'll one day see it appear in the medium of animation.
The chapter came to a close with Goku not just accessing a new level of Ultra Instinct, but Gas employing a new form of his own, with the Heeter known as Elec hinting that his younger brother only has a little time left thanks in part to the wish they made upon the Dragon Balls of the Planet Cereal.
