Dragon Ball fans want a lot of things, and they don't always get them. Even the nicest request can go untouched if the series' creator is not up to answering. Over the year, a great many of these requests were answered by ventures such as video games or side stories. And after a long wait, it seems one anime has brought Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta to life in the best way.
The gift came courtesy of the newest Super Dragon Ball Heroes episode. The update checked in on Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta as they encountered a strange doctor ready to battle. The pair did not know what they were getting into when they first challenged him, but they learned quickly enough. In fact, the baddie was challenging enough that it prompted Vegeta to go Super Saiyan 3.
Now, this form has been around for decades now, and it is most famous because of its debut in Dragon Ball Z. Goku was able to unlock the form along with his youngest son since Gotenks used the transformation. Fans kept waiting on Vegeta to use the power on the air, but no such moment ever came. It is only now that Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta exists in the anime, and fans have a lot to say about its debut.
You can take a peek at some of the reactions below as Dragon Ball lovers are torn about the milestone. While many are happy to get an official look at the form on Vegeta, there are just as many who wanted the hero to avoid such a move. That is only doubled when fans realize Dragon Ball Heroes isn't considered canon to the mainline series, but its timeline doesn't make it any less legit. So if you haven't seen the Dragon Ball Heroes anime yet, you better check it (and Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta) out ASAP!

Seeing an official version of Vegeta in Super Saiyan 3 form gave me closure I didn’t know I needed. Lmao— Giyé (@EvilBleu) June 30, 2020
Not a Fan, Clearly
Super Saiyan 3 is the worst transformation ever and Vegeta was better for never having f-cked with it

A Fair Question
Super Saiyan 3, yeah, yeah, whatever. More important question. Why is Vegeta fighting COLONEL SANDERS?!?— Saikazo Biri (@kazo_biri) June 30, 2020
Back Away, Copycat
Super Saiyan 3 is still my number one favorite transformation in Dragon Ball, but Vegeta does NOT need it just because Goku has it.— Rennie (@Untidy_Hexagon) June 30, 2020
