Hold on, I just had an excellent Idea. Because I'm generous I'll bury you with your father. Go on, you may thank me I've been more than merciful it's only polite! Hahahahaha!
~ Frieza to Gohan, KAI dub

Frieza is the second of the four arch–villains of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Z Kai (along with Vegeta, Cell, and Buu). He is arguably the main villain of the entire series, due to his role in Son Goku's origins, and one of the most evil and cruel villains of the Dragon Ball universe; while most other major villains are mindless killing machines who were created to be evil, Frieza is a knowledgeable being fully capable of reasoning, and commits all his atrocities expressly out of his own free will.



Frieza's first three forms. Right: First, Back:Second, Left: Third.

Frieza is a lizardlike alien whom some refer to as a Changeling, Icejin, a Frost Demon, or an Arcosian. He normally has has four forms, though he has an additional Mecha form, and also a few additional video game exclusive forms.

First Form

Frieza 1st Form

Frieza's 1st form

In his first form, he is very small, with two black horns (similar to those of Captain Ginyu, the leader of his elite army, the Ginyu Force) and a long tail with a purple spike at the end of it. He also wears black shorts and Saiyan armor, except his is purple rather than white, black, or blue like his henchmen. His voice in this form sounds feminine, as he is voiced by Pauline Newstone in Ocean dub, Linda Young in FUNimation dub starting from Episode 54 (and in the redub), and in Dragon Ball Z Kai he is played by Chris Ayres, where he sounds considerably more masculine (and for that matter human; in KAI he has a somewhat British-sounding accent as opposed to the high, raspy voice he has in other dubs).

After training for four months, his power in this form becomes so great that it is said not even Ultimate Gohan (as a Super Saiyan) could put up a fight against him, even with assistance from Piccolo, Tien, Krillin, Roshi, and Jaco.

Second Form

Frieza 2nd Form

Frieza's 2nd form

He shatters his armor before he transforms into his second form, which is much bigger and taller than his first form. In this form, his horns are like a bull and his voice sounds more masculine, nearly as deep as Piccolo's. He also stretches his tail in an "auto-wine" attack.

Third Form

Frieza 3rd Form

Frieza's 3rd form

In his third form, his head is longer, and he has four white horns, and a face like a duck, and several spikes on his back, and his shoulders are in a similar shape to Saiyan armor. His voice sounds like those of his first and second forms together, and his appearance is similar to that of a xenomorph from the Alien series. He gains a distorted background" voice in this form. When he transforms into his fourth form, his third form shatters.

Hypothetical True Form

Frieza's hypothetical true form is a form which appears briefly in Episode 83 of the anime, it is Krillin's imagining of how Frieza's final form will appear. It appears as a technique for Frieza in the Dragon Ball Z CCG under the name Nightmare.

True Form

His fourth form looks much less intimidating than the previous three. He is taller than his first form, but is completely white with the usual purple spots on him, and he has no horns. Also his tail does not have a spike on it. This form is stated to be his true form. He can vary the amount of power he uses in this form from an unknown but small percentage (his "base" power, and incorrectly stated to be 1% in the anime) all the way to 100% (see below). He uses two other gradients during his fight with Goku: 50% and 70%.

After four months of training Frieza masters this form, no longer having to bulk up to use his full power, and no longer losing stamina and power the longer he stays at full power. His power also rises to a level almost on par with Super Saiyan God.

100% Full Power

Frieza (100%)

Frieza at max power

He can also power up to 100% of his maximum, and buff up. In the anime, this form sounds different from his first form, and a bit deeper, but in the games, movies, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Z Kai, his voice is identical to that of his first form.

Mecha Frieza

Frieza (Mecha)

Mecha Frieza

Due to the damage he had gained by Super Saiyan Goku, and the destruction of Namek, Frieza was found by his father, King Cold and transformed into Mecha Frieza. Mecha Frieza was much stronger than previously, as, at 50% power he believed that he could easily outmatch a Super Saiyan. In this form he appears as a cyborg version of his true form.

In some video games Mecha Frieza is able to power up to 100%, when he does so his aura begins crackling with red electricity and his body begins glowing with power.

Golden Frieza

Golden Frieza

Golden Frieza

This form is referred to as the "Ultimate Evolution" form. Frieza attains this form after his revival, by training extremely hard for four months. In this form Frieza is extremley powerful, being massively superior to Super Saiyan God SS Goku and Vegeta in terms of raw power, so much so that when he possessed the form's full power and stamina, Goku was unable to even do any damage to the tyrant. However, while the form is incredibly powerful it has the drawback of losing power and stamina at an incredibly fast rate, leading to Frieza's defeat since he chose to draw out his revenge instead of just finishing it instantly.

Other forms

Full Armor Mecha Frieza

Cyborg Frieza

Cyborg Frieza

An alternate and more powerful version of Mecha Frieza which only appears in Super Dragon Ball Z, in this variant of his Mecha form his tail is now lined with blades, he has a large metallic orb on his shoulder (filled with ammunition) and also has a large missile launcher on his other shoulder.

Cybernetic Armor Frieza

When damaged after his battle with Super Saiyan Goku in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, Frieza attatches cyberentic parts to his bruised body, making his outer appearance identical to Mecha Frieza, bit he does not actually contain cybernetics internally. Frieza uses this state to defeat the Z Fighters and the Red Ribbon Androids.

Majin Frieza

A form displayed by Frieza in several video games where he is resurrected by Babidi. In the games story, Frieza is revived alongside Cell and the two both take on Majin forms due to Babidi's influence. They fight the Z Fighters and are defeated. Once Babidi is killed Frieza and Cell are freed from his influence.

Frieza (Majin)

Majin Frieza

Ghost Warrior

Frieza's Ghost Warrior form only appears in Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans and it's remake Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans. In this form Frieza is resurrected by Raichi as a unkillable Ghost, this form looks exactly the same as Frieza's true form. In this form Frieza is able to defeat Full-Power Super Saiyan Gohan and also fight on par with both Super Saiyans Vegeta and Future Trunks. In this state Frieza is able to constantly regenerate as long as their is a Destron Gas Machine nearby.

Frieza (w/ Janemba's evil energy)

Frieza only takes this form in Shin Budokai - Another Road, when he prepares to kidnap Android 18 and destroy the Earth. Frieza powers up to his maximum and begins absorbing Janemba's evil energy in order to increase his  power to become higher than that of anyone  on Earth.


Frieza is an extremely sadistic individual, taking great delight in slaughtering and destroying others, particularly on a massive scale. This is best shown when he laughed in delight as he watched Planet Vegeta blow up from his Death Ball. Frieza also enjoys making people suffer before killing them, which is why he doesn't kill his foes outright. A notable fact is that he has tortured every character to fight him. He is also extremely egotistical and has a rather sarcastic sense of humor, such as when he was talking about Vegeta and stated, "There are three things I refuse to tolerate. Cowardice, bad haircuts, and military insurrection. And it is unfortunate that our friend Vegeta possesses all three of these." Frieza is very cold-hearted and cares about no one but himself, though he is respectful of his father, King Cold. Frieza's personality seems to be a counter to Goku's light hearted, kind, and peaceful one, but it is unknown if this was done intentionally. He is usually able to react to any situation evenly and only loses his cool when even his full power is not enough. However for all his pride and arrogance, Frieza is rather paranoid, destroying Planet Vegeta simply because of a myth of a Super Saiyan, which was supposed to be the one thing that could destroy him. Despite this, he boasts of being the strongest being in the universe, and he is (for the most part) correct in this assessment.


Early Life

Frieza has a large number of henchmen at his disposal, the strongest of which are Zarbon, Dodoria, and Cui. He also has an elite army called the Ginyu Force, and more special forces - such as Abo and Kado.

At some point prior to the series, Frieza and an unknown female member of his race had a child named Kuriza.

Frieza (Bardock Father of Goku)

Frieza in Episode of Bardock

Frieza got the Saiyans to work for him and sell planets to him, killing all their inhabitants to conquer them. When the Saiyans began getting stronger, Frieza feared that a Super Saiyan would rise up and destroy him, so he killed their king, King Vegeta, and destroyed their home planet, Planet Vegeta.
Frieza destroying Planet Vegeta

Frieza about to destroy Planet Vegeta in Bardock: Father of Goku

Only a few Saiyans were not caught in the explosion, including Vegeta, Nappa, Raditz, and Son Goku (whose Saiyan name is Kakarot), the protagonist of the series.

Hunt for the Dragon Balls

When Raditz came to Earth and was defeated by Piccolo, he sent a message to Nappa and Vegeta about the Dragon Balls.

Frieza, Zarbon and Dodoria

Frieza with his strongest fighters, Zarbon, and Dordoria

Frieza heard the message, so he and his henchmen, including Zarbon and Dodoria, went over to Namek to get the Dragon Balls so he could wish for immortality.
Frieza Threatens Namekians

Frieza threatens the Namekians

Frieza and his men killed the Namekians of five villages to get the Dragon Balls, however, at the fifth, the elder, Moori, destroyed all his scouters, preventing him from tracking down the Dragon Balls. Dodoria became separated from them while chasing Krillin and Son Gohan, who intervened to save a Namek boy Dende from Dodoria. Dodoria never returned, as he was later attacked and killed by Vegeta.

Once he deduced that Dodoria was dead (and deeming him expendable anyways), Frieza headed back to his ship with his five Dragon Balls, leaving Zarbon and Appule to find the two remaining Dragon Balls. Zarbon ran into Vegeta and transformed to defeat him, but Vegeta had previously attacked a Namek village and hidden its Dragon Ball. The village was discovered by one of Frieza's henchmen, Orlen, who was killed by Frieza for not finding out the location of the Dragon Ball (he killed the only survivor). Frieza instructed Zarbon to bring Vegeta to him and heal him to make him tell them where the Dragon Balls were.

Calling for the Ginyu Force

However, Vegeta killed Appule, broke out of Frieza's ship, and stole all his Dragon Balls. An enraged Frieza gave Zarbon one hour to find Vegeta. Though he transformed, Zarbon was no match for Vegeta, who becomes stronger after each time he recovers from serious injuries. After Vegeta killed Zarbon and took the Dragon Ball that Kuririn got from Guru, the Eldest Namek, Frieza summoned the Ginyu Special Force (killing one of his own men, Orien, for no reason at all). The Ginyu Force - Recoome, Burter, Jeice, Guldo, and Captain Ginyu - arrived on Namek, and Jeice brought Frieza scouters.

Vegeta joined forces with Krillin and Gohan, however Captain Ginyu took all seven dragonballs from them and brought them to Frieza. Frieza tried to summon the eternal dragon, but as he did not know the Namekian password to summon him, he was unsuccessful, so he headed toward Guru's house to get the password from him, leaving Ginyu and his henchmen behind to guard the Dragon Balls. He flew right by Dende, whom Guru asked to tell Krillin and Gohan the password, but chose to ignore him for sake of time. He arrived at Guru's house where Nail, Namek's greatest warrior, told Frieza that if Guru dies, the Dragon Balls disappear.

Confronting Nail

Frieza vs Nails

Frieza vs Nail

To prevent Frieza to cause anymore harm, Nail challenged Frieza to a battle. However, Frieza easily beat him up, until the Namekian revealed that his plan was to distract Frieza so Dende could give the Z Warriors the password. Enraged, Frieza immediately headed back to his spaceship, and was shocked to discover on his scouter that all the Ginyu Force had been killed (except for Ginyu, who had accidentally switched bodies with a frog).

The Battles with Frieza

Frieza (First Form)

Frieza about to enter into his second form

An extremely angry Frieza arrived at the scene shortly after Gohan, Kuririn, and Dende summoned Porunga and wished Piccolo back to life and teleported him to Namek, and after Porunga disappeared because Guru died at that moment. Frieza fought Vegeta and appeared evenly matched with him (if not at a slight advantage, seeing as how Vegeta was out of breath and Frieza was not), so Vegeta suggested that he transform.
Frieza (Second Form)

Frieza's second form

Frieza transformed into his second form (which has a fighting power of one million) and impaled Kuririn with his horn. This made Gohan angry, and he beat up Frieza. However, Frieza survived and attacked Gohan, until Krillin was healed by Dende and cut off Frieza's tail, then distracted him so Dende could heal Gohan. As Gohan, Krillin, and Vegeta went for a head-on attack, Piccolo came. Before appearing to fight Frieza, Piccolo fused with a badly injured Nail to increase his power, and beat up Frieza.
Frieza (Third Form)

Frieza's third form

This forced Frieza to transform into his third form. He barraged Piccolo, but Gohan nearly killed him with a Masenko, using up all his power in the process. Frieza was incredibly angry at this point and decided that he would show them the most terrifying thing in the universe, his final form.
Frieza (Final Form)

Frieza's Final Form

Frieza transformed into his fourth form, however he witnessed Dende healing Piccolo, so after finishing his transformation, he killed Dende with a Death Beam to prevent him from healing anyone again. Vegeta, who had previously been injured by Krillin and healed by Dende (as his plan to become stronger, and maybe turn into a Super Saiyan) fought Frieza, but was simply unable to hit him. Frieza patiently waited until the Saiyan had fully realized the hopelessness of the situation and lost his will to fight.

He then attacked Vegeta, slowly beating him to death, until Goku arrived, having fully recovered from his injuries from the fight with Ginyu.
Frieza kills Vegeta

Frieza kills Vegeta with his Death Beam

Frieza killed Vegeta with a Death Beam through the chest, for no reason other than to shut him up about Goku being a Super Saiyan and how he would destroy Frieza.

Final battle with the Super Saiyan

Goku fought Frieza in an epic battle that took 19 episodes. At one point, Frieza said he would fight Goku without using his hands, but was forced to break the deal, as Goku gained the advantage after biting Frieza's tail (to prevent him from choking him). Frieza attacked by throwing rocks and chunks of land at Goku, and trapping him in an energy ball that would explode if it touched anything except Frieza. However, his one weakness was that he could not sense energy signals, and could not hit Goku unless he could see him.

Goku and Frieza were evenly matched, until Frieza powered up to 50% of his maximum and beat up Goku. Goku tried the 20-times Kaioken, and briefly regained the advantage, but Frieza survived, virtually untouched, and continued pounding Goku. With no other option, Goku gathered energy from Namek and the planets around it to form a Genki Dama (Spirit Bomb). Once Frieza realized the danger he was in he tried to kill Goku to stop him, but Piccolo attacked Frieza as a distraction. Frieza was about to destroy Piccolo, but when Goku's Spirit Bomb was complete, and he fired it at Frieza.

Frieza used all his might to fight off the powerful Spirit Bomb, but The Spirit Bomb "ultimately destroyed" Frieza in the progress.

Frieza somehow survived, however, though with a bit of damage (not the least of which a portion of his tail was missing). He shot a Death Beam at Goku, but Piccolo took the hit and was seriously wounded.

Frieza killed Krillin afterwards, angering Goku so much that he transformed into a

Super Saiyan. Ironically, Frieza had created the very thing he had so long feared and gone to such great lengths to eliminate. In this form, Goku gained the advantage over Frieza, so Frieza shot a Death Ball at the core of Planet Namek, which would inevitably cause it to explode. Frieza estimated five minutes, but five hours was more accurate (it took 10 episodes to blow up).
216676-100 power frieza super

Frieza at 100%

Later, Frieza powered up to 100% of his maximum. Against the wishes of Kaio, Goku let Frieza reach his maximum so he would be sure that Frieza was beaten at his best and would never come back to haunt them.

This proved to be a big mistake, as Frieza regained his advantage over Goku. Eventually, the two went on a crash course, with Goku shooting a Kamehameha and Frieza charging at him with red energy (called Nova Strike in the games). Though Goku appeared to be winning at first, Frieza jumped out of the kamehameha and pounded Goku into the ground, knocking him into the lava. Gohan returned to fight Frieza. Meanwhile, Mr. Popo collected the Earth's Dragonballs and Kaio told Kami to tell him to wish back everyone killed by Frieza and his henchmen (which only includes those who died less than a year ago) back to life. Krillin did not come back, as he had already been wished back once, but Vegeta, Dende, Guru, presumably Nappa, and all the Nameks did.

Gohan used his hidden powers to gain the advantage over Frieza. As Frieza powered up again, Goku reemerged from the lava, having survived Frieza's attack. While fighting Frieza, Goku telepathically overheard Kaio's plan to use Porunga's last wish to teleport everyone on Namek to Earth except Frieza, and elected to stay behind to finish Frieza off. Guru told Dende to make the wish, however Frieza saw Porunga and got there first and wished for immortality. However, he did not know that one must speak the Namekian language to make a wish to Porunga, so when Dende made his wish, Porunga granted it and not Frieza's wish. Everyone on Namek was teleported to Earth except Goku and Frieza, who continued their battle.

Frieza's strength decreased with every blow and Goku beat him up. At one point, he decided to spare the evil tyrant's life, knowing that Frieza could not win because his 100% full power put tremendous stress on his body. However, Frieza attacked Goku with his Death Saucer, unwilling to accept defeat, so Goku resumed the fight with him.
Frieza (Sliced)

Frieza getting sliced by his own Death Saucer

During the fight, Frieza overlooked an energy disk that was coming up behind him (in an attempt to chase after Goku) and chopped him in half, cutting his left arm off as well. Goku decided to leave Frieza to die on Namek, but Frieza begged him for his life, so Goku reluctantly gave him some of his own energy so he could escape. Still unwilling to accept defeat, Frieza shot an energy blast at Goku as he attempted to leave, so Goku shot his own energy blast at Frieza, seemingly killing him.

Return and first death

Frieza (in Space)

Frieza, nearly dead, in space

However, Frieza survived the attack (though King Kai believed him to be dead), and was caught in Planet Namek's explosion (which Goku escaped), but survived it as well (though a huge chunk was missing from his head). His father, the wicked giant King Cold, found him drifting through space, barely alive, and had him made into a cyborg, even stronger than before.
Mecha frieza

Frieza after being reconstructed.

The minute he reawakened he told his father to take him to Earth so he could blow it up as revenge on Goku.

Frieza and King Cold arrived on Earth. Gohan, Krillin (who was wished back with the Namek Dragon Balls), Piccolo, Vegeta, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu went out to face him, even though they knew that he would defeat them easily. However, before Frieza could take his vengeance, Trunks appeared from the future. He killed all of Frieza's henchmen, but Frieza was not in the least bit intimidated - until Trunks transformed into a Super Saiyan. After two failed attempts at destroying him, Frieza shot a giant Supernova energy ball at the earth to blow it up. But Trunks caught it with one hand, so Frieza blew up the Supernova. Trunks was thought to be dead, but he escaped the explosion without so much as a scratch, and shot a Burning Attack at Frieza and King Cold.
Frieza's Death

Frieza's Death

They dodged it, and then Trunks chopped Frieza vertically in half with his sword. He then sliced him to pieces and finished him off with an energy wave, reducing him to nothing more than dust. Trunks later killed King Cold just as easily.

Many years later, just before heading to Earth, the God of Destruction Beerus questioned his attendant Whis on the status of Frieza, with Whis explaining Frieza's defeats and death, and showing Beerus the fight between 50% Power Frieza and Super Saiyan Goku. 

The Resurrection of Frieza

For years after his defeat and death at the hands of the Super Saiyans, Frieza remained in Hell. However, over a decade after his supposed final defeat his minion Sorbet, who was running his army in his place, decided that it was time for them to revive Frieza. Sorbet and Tagoma went to Earth and obtained the Dragon Balls, wishing Frieza back to life.

Frieza returned to life in his cut-up mecha state and was immediatly taken back to the ship to be placed in a regeneration chamber. The new chamber fully healed Frieza to his previous non-cybernetic state. After a discussion with his soldiers, resulting in the deaths of several who questioned him - including Tagoma - Frieza announced that he would have his revenge, and to do so would train for four months in order to increase his power to a level on par with the Super Saiyan Gods and Gods of Destruction - which he believed himself capable of thanks to being a prodigy.

The tyrant was correct, and upon his arrival to Earth with one thousand warriors his mere first form was noted as being in a completley different league altogether from even the likes of Super Namek Piccolo and Super Saiyan Gohan. The latter of whom he defeates in a single blow. After his army fails to defeat the Z Fighters he wipes them all out with a Death Cannon.

Frieza prepares to transform

Frieza prepares to take on his Ultimate Evolution

Goku and Vegeta then arrive, and Frieza and Goku begin fighting, with Frieza going straight to his newly mastered final form, and Goku using his Saiyan beyond God form (his base form, but with the power of Super Saiyan God). Goku has a clear advantage and manages to avoid being damaged at all by Frieza, even when the tyrant attacks with his Golden Death Ball. The two then both reveal that they have been holding back. Goku reveals his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form, and Frieza counters by revaling his Ultimate Evolution: Golden Frieza, the two then begin fighting again.

Golden Frieza vs Super God Goku

Frieza clashes with Goku

As the fight goes on Golden Frieza is clearly shown to be dominating the fight - without even bothering to use his full power or fight seriously, as he easily smacks around Goku, injuring the Saiyan greatly while not even getting a single scratch to his own frame. He proves his superiority by increaisng his power and releasing an energy cutter beam - which despite not even hitting Goku has enough power in it's aftershock to knock him off his feet and damage him. Frieza, Goku, and Vegeta then stop for a brief talk, with Goku revealing that he has noticed Frieza's power is dropping rapidly. Frieza angrily realizes this is true and begins to fight seriously, however Goku begins using evasive tactics to cause Frieza to waste his energy.

Golden Frieza defeats Goku

Golden Frieza after defeating Goku

Eventually Golden Frieza's power drops so much so that he is unable to damage Goku with his hits. At this point Goku easily knocks him down with a God Kamehameha. However, while Goku has his guard down, Frieza signals Sorbet who shoots Goku in the heart with a surprise shot, grievously wounding him. After torturing Goku, Frieza asks Vegeta to be the one to kill Goku - and in exchange Frieza will make him supreme commander of his army, Vegeta declines and has Krillin give Goku a Senzu Beam, also killing Sorbet by reflecting an attack that was aimed at Krillin at him. Vegeta then reveals that he too possess a Super Saiyan God SS form and easily defeats the severely drained Golden Frieza.

Frieza - his energy gone - reverts to his final form, however as Vegeta is about to finish him off, Frieza detonates the entirety of Planet Earth, killing Vegeta and every one else on the planet. The only survivors are those that Beerus and Whis saved with an energy shield. Whis tells Goku that he is willing to rewind time so that Goku can defeat Frieza like he should have when he had the chance. Goku obliges and they go back to just as Frieza is about to detonate the planet, Super Saiyan God SS Goku leaps out and hits Frieza with a God Kamehameha, saving the Earth.

Frieza is then back in Hell, and to his horror is welcomed by the angels. Frieza then cries at being returned to his torment.

Other appearances




Frieza with King Cold in Hell.

Frieza was sent to hell after his death. Once Cell was destroyed and sent to hell, Frieza, King Cold, and the Ginyu Force (still minus Captain Ginyu) teamed up with him to cause trouble. Goku and Pikkon went to stop them. Goku defeated the Ginyu Force, and Pikkon defeated Cell, King Cold, and Frieza, knocking Frieza out cold with a punch to the face. All seven villains were locked up in a prison cell. They were later released, and apparently did not cause any more trouble. Frieza witnessed the battle between Goku and Kid Buu through a giant crystal ball with all the other villains in hell, sticking his tongue out at Goku and calling him "Lousy no-good Saiyan monkey!" His final appearance was in a scene only shown in the uncut; When Goku destroys Kid Buu, Frieza says "Why am I not surprised?"

Episode of Bardock

Frieza appears at the beginning of the movie, where he uses his Supernova in order to destroy Planet Vegeta, sending Bardock back in time.

Dragon Ball Z movies

It was said that the Dragon Ball movies all happened in dimensions seperate from the main timeline, so several different dimensional counterparts of Frieza appear as villains.

Bardock - Father of Goku

Frieza appears throughout the movie, rapidly approaching Planet Vegeta, before destroying it with his Supernova.

Cooler's Revenge

Frieza appears at the start of the movie, where Cooler and his Armored Squadron watch Frieza destroy Planet Vegeta.

Frieza fights with Trunks and Vegeta and gets killed by Trunks, however in alternate ending Frieza kills Trunks and Vegeta. In another alternate ending, in the pre-fight with Frieza and Gohan, Frieza is easily over powering Gohan in the fight. Frieza end up killing Gohan after punching Gohan in the stomach few times.

Fusion Reborn

In the movie Fusion Reborn, Janemba's appearance caused many villains, including Frieza, to escape from Hell. Several of his henchmen, as well as movie villains (including Bojack and Paragus) were working for him, and he sent them to attack Gohan, but Gohan punched Frieza in the stomach and blew him up, completely destroying him.

In Dragon Ball GT, when Dr. Gero and the artificial Android 17 opened up a portal from Hell and all the villains escaped, Frieza and Cell remained behind to fight Goku when Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu lured him into Hell. Goku beat up Frieza and Cell, but was unable to kill them because they were already dead. Frieza and Cell sent Goku to a cave below Hell where he was tortured and frozen, but since he was not dead and the ice melted. After knocking Frieza and Cell away, Goku used the ice machine to freeze Frieza and Cell. He accidentally knocked Frieza into Cell, causing them both to fall down and shatter. They later came back together, but were chained up, put in a cage, and hauled away by ogres. GT is only canon to the Anime and not the Manga.

Video Games

Frieza is a playable character in the Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi series of video-games for the PlayStation2. In these games, the voices for all his forms sound exactly the same (though his second and third forms sound

Frieza in Shin Budokai

slightly deeper than his first and fourth, barely noticeable). Also, the games give insight as to what Frieza's third form looks like with his tail completely intact (as it was cut off by Krillin before he transformed into his third form). Frieza's cyborg form, Mecha Frieza, is counted as a separate character rather than a transformation.

Shin Budokai

Frieza is the leader of most of the villains who escape from hell when Janemba returns and causes further havoc. Frieza immediately begins searching for the Dragon Balls, even fighting and defeating Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan along the way.

Powers and Abilities


Frieza charging his Death Beam

Frieza has superhuman abilities and the ability to manipulate energy, like many other characters throughout the Dragon Ball series. However, these powers go far beyond what had previously been seen; even in his first form his power level exceeds that of any character introduced up until that point by a factor of twenty. In a flashback to the genocide of the Saiyans, Frieza kills King Vegeta, the most powerful Saiyan at the time, with a single blow to the jaw. Actual levels of speed and strength (not power level) in relation to a normal human are never expressed and are essentially meaningless, Frieza has been shown to be able to fly at a speed which exceeds Sound, and has shown remarkable physical strength, easily ripping a person's arm off. He can also survive in space and transform so as to be able to use more of his power. Frieza has a number of signature techniques, such as the Death Ball, a powerful ball of energy that he generates from his fingertip and grows the more energy he puts into it. He usually uses this to unleash mass destruction, such as when he destroyed Planet Vegeta with one of it's most powerful variants - the Supernova.

Another technique he used often was his Death Beam, a small but potent beam of energy also fired from his finger that he often used to quickly kill people. Frieza also possesses telekinetic powers and great ability to survive grievous injuries, able to survive getting sliced in half, being blasted by Goku's final energy attack, and even getting caught in Namek's explosion. In one video game, Frieza is revealed to be able to use the Kamehameha, it is likely that Cell taught him this technique while in hell. Frieza can use the Kiai along with his own stronger version "Don't Get So Cocky!".

Frieza also has powerful psychokinectic and tekelinetic abilities, being able to levitate and throw large rocks and mountains, lift people, and Freeze people in place. He can also combine his Ki with Telekinesis to form the Imprisonment Ball, which is almost impossible to escape from.

In several Video Games, Frieza has the ability to transform into a 5th form (though only as a palette swap for Cooler), Frieza's 5th form is also referenced in Dragon Ball Online. This form makes Frieza stronger than Cooler.

In his final form he possess enough power to fight someone with the power of a Super Saiyan God, and upon taking on his Ultimate Evolution: Golden Frieza he is able to completely outmatch a Super Saiyan God SS without even boethring to fight seriously or use his full power.

Other media

In Fusion Reborn, Frieza is shown leading many villains out of hell, including Bojack, meaning that he had grown to become similar in power to a Super Saiyan 2.

Frieza's power appears to have increased drastically in Dragon Ball GT, as he is able to fight evenly with Goku (in Base form) who had become more powerful than Majin Buu. Dragon Ball Z: Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha states that Frieza (at 10%) had a power level of 143,994,141. This means that at full power he would have a power level of 1,439,941,410.

In the opening of Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Frieza at max power is shown to be able to easily outmatch Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta. In the opening of Ultimate Tenkaichi and also in one of the promos for Dragon Ball Heroes, Frieza is able to match Super Saiyan Goku using only 10% of his power.

Frieza's power appears to have greatly improved by the time of Shin Budokai - Another Road, as, at 100% power he is able to fight and kill Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan (who in the game has power on par with Super Saiyan 3 Goku). Cooler and Cell were also subserviant to him in this game, meaning he was stronger than both of them. He also defeated Super Saiyan Gotenks, and Pikkon stated that his power was greater than Broly, Cooler, and Cell - making it over 1,400,000,000 (going by Broly's official power level).

Notable Online Fan Works

Dragon Ball AF

Note: The following section is not canon and is merely a FANON series Dragon Ball AFs, they are only here because they are quite famous among the fanon continuity and are legimtimate doushinjis.
Young Jijji

In Young Jijji's non-canon (fanon) continuation manga, Frieza's son Ize appears as the main villain. Frieza is also mentioned. In Volume 2, Frieza appears in Hell cheering for his son and stating how proud he is. After Ize is defeated Frieza is incredibly dissapointed, stating his frustration at his family having been beaten again by Saiyans.


Frieza appears a few times in Toyble's AF. He appears being rebuilt into Mecha Frieza in a flashback that reveals that that the female Supreme Kai is his mother. He also appears in Hell where he amd Cell attempt to defeat Piccolo, whoc had been easily beating up any villain who comes after him, Piccolo proceeds to blast the two of them.

Dragon Ball Multiverse

Frieza appears in the fan manga sequel to Dragon Ball Z by Salagir. Frieza is one of the entrants of the tournament. The Frieza here is different from the original (the original was from Universe 18, the one in Mutiverse is from Universe 8).

Dragon Ball Z Abridged


Frieza is almost the same as he is in the actual series. His main satisfaction is his overusage of black humour, virtually making jokes about death and killing in almost every one of his appearances. He also acts overly polite and even effeminately to a much greater level in the anime.


After hearing of the Saiyan's increasing power he decides to exterminate them. Bardock attempts to stop him, but Frieza deals with him easily. During the genocide, Cooler sees Goku's ship leaving and decides to let him go because Cooler's a "prick". 

Many years later, he takes an army with him to conquer Namek. Having collected four Dragon Balls, Gohan and Krillin ambush his calvary. Frieza tells Dodoria to chase them, but Dodoria is killed by Vegeta. Later on after all his Dragon Balls are stolen and Zarbon is killed, Frieza calls the Ginyu force to help get them back. He then realizes the Namekian Dragon Balls require a Namekian password after killing all the Namekians. Ginyu suggests Frieza should search for other Namekians. Frieza shows up at Super Kami Guru's, and leaves to battle Nail. After defeating, and tearing his arm off twenty-four times, Nail, Frieza rushes to the dragon, Krillin, Gohan, and Dende have summoned.

After the dragon dies, Frieza tells Vegeta what really happened to Planet Vegeta and then transforms into his second form, nearly killing Krillin. When Piccolo shows up Frieza decides to transform into his third form and wounds Piccolo.

When Frieza transforms into his final form he kills Dende then defeats Vegeta. Goku arrives and Vegeta tells him to defeat Frieza shortly before dying. Goku is Frieza's strongest foe yet (and the stupidest). He throws a spirit bomb at Frieza, seemingly killing him. After Frieza reveals he is not dead, he shoots Piccolo with a death beam through his chest and kills Krillin. Goku is infuriated at this and powers up to Super Saiyan. Frieza promises Goku two pizzas with stuffed crust in return for letting Frieza power up to full strength. In the midst of their battle, Frieza almost destroys Namek and gives it five minutes until it explodes. He shoots two Destructo Disks at Goku, which miss and return to cut him in half from behind.

After asking Goku to spare "a cup of energy," Goku concedes and flies away, causing Frieza to reflect on his misdeeds. Believing he received a second chance to change, he blows it off shouting "NAH!" and fires at Goku, only to be vaporized by a more powerful blast from the super saiyan who really meant to give him more energy. However, a post-credits scene reveals Frieza alive in space and mechanized by his father King Cold in a parody of Star Wars episode 3 complete with background music from the film.

Mecha Frieza then goes to Earth with his father, but he proves to have some error - such as lagging. Eventually he is killed by Trunks and shuts down with a blue screen of death.

"Pool’s open; water’s fine... Hmm, no? Just going to stand there like a bunch of piss-ants? Thought so. Now, where were we? Oh, right, I believe it was...kidney punch. Kidney punch kidney punch kidney punch and pause...kidney punch".


  • Frieza is regarded to be DragonBall Z's most despicable villain. While Cell was genetically engineered to destroy the universe, Buu was a mindless beast and Omega Shenron was the embodiment of all evil, Frieza chose to be evil. Although he was offered multiple opportunities to change his ways, he remained unrepentantly villainous and was one of the reasons DragonBall Z was listed a violent show by moral guardians in the 1990s.
  • Although he is not the most powerful, Frieza is DragonBall Z's most popular villain and one of its most iconic and recognisable characters, aside from Goku.
  • Frieza is similar to Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter. Both are the most powerful villains in their respective fictional universes (during the Namek Saga in Frieza's case), both are charismatic, power-hungry psychopaths who command a vast army of followers and plot domination of the world. Both are paranoid but good and concealing their fears and obsessed with gaining immortality and when they hear of a prophecy of one who will destroy them, they take murderous action to prevent this prophecy from coming true, only to inadvertantly bring it to fruition. Both have a minion who ultimately defects to the side of good, only to be viciously murdered by them (Snape/Vegeta), both are arrogant and condescending but witty and sophisticated until they are thwarted in their goals at which point they fly into a furious rage. Finally, both are offered a chance of redemption by their nemesis, only to refuse it and bring about their own deaths by impulsively attacking against their better judgement.
