Other video games Edit

  • The King of Fighters character Benimaru Nikaido and Vega are quite similar; they are both constructed around the same archetype, and specialize in agility. However, Vega's obsession with beauty has made him hostile towards 'ugly' people, whereas Benimaru simply enjoys keeping up his handsome appearance, and he is more respectful of everyone. Also, Benimaru is a rival and partner to his series' main hero (i.e. Kyo Kusanagi, in this case), while Vega is a henchman of his series' main villain (the nefarious M. Bison).
  • Zhang He of the Dynasty Warriors series most resembles Vega; the character model use for Zhang He has a similar body type, also bearing a tattoo on his chest and wielding clawed gauntlets. Both also use very graceful and swift moves, and possess a seeming obsession with beauty. However, Vega looks for physical beauty, while Zhang He looks for grace in battle, and treats it as a theater show.

Comics and Manga Edit

Books Edit

  • In terms of personality, Vega is also similar to Patrick Bateman from the novel American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. Both are extremely vain and good-looking serial killers, obsessed with beauty and perfection; both also become enraged if their face is ever damaged, or their looks are compromised. The main substantial difference is that Bateman is a true psychopath, while Vega is not.
