Future Vegeta is the alternate timeline counterpart of Vegeta who appeared in the alternate timeline in which Future Trunks and Future Gohan lived. This Vegeta appears in the brief opening scene of Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks and in a flashback during an episode of Dragon Ball Z. Future Vegeta was the lover of Future Bulma, and the father of Future Trunks.
Future Vegeta's life was exactly the same as his main timeline counterpart's life until August of Age 764 when Future Goku used the Instant Transmission to arrive on Earth and kill Future Frieza and Future King Cold. Sometime afterward, Vegeta trained and became a Super Saiyan.
Two years later in Age 766, Future Goku had been stricken down by a deadly Heart Virus that had no cure. Future Vegeta, along with the other Z Fighters and company await the news of Future Goku's health. However, Future Goku passes away and he is unable to be wished back to life with the Dragon Balls, due to his death being a natural cause, leaving Future Vegeta shocked about Future Goku's death and finds himself very upset due to the fact that he will never get his chance to defeat his rival in battle.
Six months later on May 12th, Age 767, the Androids attack and Future Vegeta is the second Z Fighter to be killed by them. In the TV special, Vegeta is shown receiving a hard kick to the stomach by Future Android 17, and in the episode "Ghosts from Tomorrow" it is shown during a flashback that he dies after being struck by 17's Photon Flash while stuck in the ground after receiving a brutal attack. In both instances, he retains his Super Saiyan power and abilities. After his death, the Androids proceed to kill the rest of the Z Fighters except for Future Gohan and Future Trunks (Future Vegeta's only son) and because of Future Piccolo's death, the Dragon Balls vanish permanently as the Z Fighters are unable to be wished back, which also kills Future Kami.
Future Vegeta was 35 years old when he was killed by the Androids.
Dragon Ball Super
Despite not appearing in this series, his spirit was destroyed when Future Zen-Oh wiped out all existence to end Fusion Zamasu's reign of terror. His spirit still continues to exist in the new timeline Whis created, but cannot be revived because the Earth's Dragon Balls are still inert due to Piccolo's death. However, it is possible for Future Trunks to revive his fallen friends with the Super Dragon Balls, but never did so, because both Future Trunks and his mother never knew the existence of those Dragon Balls, so she never invented a new Dragon Radar.
Future Vegeta was about the same power level as his present timeline counterpart, however, by the time the Androids arrived, Future Vegeta was weaker than his present counterpart, due to not being aware of and not training in preperation for the Androids six months after Future Goku's death, and was easily taken out by a heavy blow from Future 17 followed by a Photon Flash, whereas Present Vegeta survived a heavy kick to the arm from Android 18, and he was unaware of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber due to his rival's death from the heart virus, and thus he never mastered the basic Super Saiyan form nor even ascend beyond its barrier to higher transformations, like his present counterpart did to achieve Super Saiyan 2nd Grade, Super Saiyan 2, and the Super Saiyan Blue froms, and he never encountered Beerus since his childhood and never trained with Whis to control his ki, due to his death at the hands of the weaker future Androids
