The Heart of the Prince
The Heart of the Prince (ブルマ動く!ベジータ改造計画, Buruma ugoku! Bejita Kaizo keikaku) is the eighth episode of the Shadow Dragon Saga and the fifty-fifth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on August 13, 1997. Its original American air date was November 27, 2004.
Through the years Vegeta, Prince of Saiyans, was forced to bear the burden of being second best to Goku. Though Vegeta and Goku set aside their differences many years ago and became friends, Vegeta once again recalls the bitterness towards Goku that was once within him. He remembers how when he first met Goku, that he did not think he could be beaten by a lower class Saiyan, and yet he was. Then he recalls all the times he surpassed Goku, only to have Goku find a higher level and surpass him once again. Vegeta begins to question whether it is his destiny to always be second best.
After straightening his thoughts out, Vegeta grabs a soda and heads out to see Bulma, who is working on her computer. They watch a replay of the battle between Goku and Vegeta (when the latter was possessed by Baby) and make an astonishing discovery: a way for Vegeta to reach the same power as Goku, Super Saiyan 4. Bulma even begins to joke that Vegeta could reach "Super Saiyan 5", but first they make it a goal to have Vegeta reach Super Saiyan 4 and finally be even with Goku.
- Most of the episode consists of footage from Dragon Ball Z episodes as flashbacks, mostly of Vegeta's two battles against Goku (Vegeta Saga and Babidi Saga), making the episode a clipshow.
- When Vegeta is using Bulma's machine, his shirt is gone, but then it "magically" reappears.
- This is the third episode of the Dragon Ball franchise to present and describe the innermost feelings of the fact Vegeta about Goku having surpassed in strength and power. Vegeta once again confesses that Goku is a powerful and legendary Super Saiyan. The first and second episodes where such events occurred are in "The End of Vegeta" and "Vegeta's Respect", both are in Dragon Ball Z. However this event could be considered the fourth if it is added to the confession that Vegeta did to Goku in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn.
- Bulma jokingly states that Vegeta may very well reach Super Saiyan 5. Super Saiyan 5 is an (as of now) in-existent form which was part of an April Fool's Joke called Dragon Ball AF.
