The latest episode of the Dragon Ball Super Dub series slowed down the pace of the "Future Trunks Saga" for a character-centric episode. DBS ep. saw Trunks taking in life in the present timeline, and comparing it to the harsh world he grew up in, under the threat of Goku Black.
Trunk's rumination on how time changes things focused mainly on how Gohan's life as a scholar now differed so greatly form the hardened warrior that was Future Gohan. However, there was also a moment that had fans gushing: Vegeta showing off his own version of family man pride!
In an intense scene, Vegeta trains to fight Goku black in his training room, while ruminating on Future Trunks' report of how Black wiped out his family. Needless to say, the thought of his loved ones dying at the hands of a Goku look-alike drives Vegeta to some serious rage - which he promptly takes out on the poor practice drones!
Dragon Ball fans have been seriously enamored with Vegeta's new family man values, lately. The Dub series has given us swooning moments like the one described above. (SPOILERS for DBS Sub Follow!!!) Meanwhile, the sub series just saw Vegeta finally go down in the Tournament Power - a moment marked his emotional reflections on letting his family down (End SPOILERS).
These examples of just how far Vegeta has come are really giving fans the feels. Check out what they're saying, below!

Even the hardest man understands what happens when bachelor bro warrior goes family man. No shame in that game.prevnext
So Vegeta has had a great character arc in DBS, he's grown as a character, and also hasn't lost the things he gained in DBZ. Vegeta has successfully reminded us of why he is great and why it is that we love Dragon Ball as a whole. Also he took out GoD Toppo, making me happy. pic.twitter.com/LKhmcHpCJe— Kaze Masuta (@KazeMasuta) February 25, 2018
The addition of Cabba in DBS gave Vegeta another person tocare about alongside his family and friends back on Earth, and I think introducing another saiyan who wants to learn from Vegeta was a very good thing to do in terms of progressing himself as a character.— Kaze Masuta (@KazeMasuta) February 25, 2018
This fan points out that Universe 6 Saiyan Cabba has also entered the tent of those Vegeta feels responsible for protecting. It's not just a blood-bond thing!prevnext

These images are like every Vegeta pose in Dragon Ball Z (surprised, proud, that's about it) - just with baby Bulla now in the picture! This of course depicts the moment Vegeta helped ensure his Saiyan legacy, giving Bulla the Saiyan name of "Eschalot."prevnext
fuck vegeta for tearing apart such a perfect family pic.twitter.com/ja6uaEvANU— 『ɢᴏᴛʜ ᴄᴏᴡʙᴏʏ』 (@DamonSenpai) February 25, 2018
This fan is having some fun with the idea of Vegeta as a family-killer, instead of family-creator.
How do you feel about Vegeta the family man? Let us know in the comments!
