Get along, lil' doggie, Big Daddy's here for some fun, but in this picture, kid, you're the one who's gonna be pushing up daisies
~ Reacoom to Son Gohan

Reacoom (Recoome in the Funimation dub) is one of the Ginyu Special Force who work for Freeza and an antagonist in the Namek Saga. He is the biggest (and second tallest), with a humanoid appearance and red hair. He is often speculated to be the second strongest after to Captain Ginyu. Despite his seemingly goofy attitude, Reacoom is actually quite intelligent, not to mention extremely sadistic.

The Anime

When the Ginyu Special Force was called to Namek to take the Dragon Balls back from Vegeta, Reacoom, Butta, Jheese, and Gurd did rock-paper-scissors to determine who gets to fight Vegeta. Reacoom won, but decided to let Gurd fight Kuririn and Son Gohan first. During the fight, Reacoom bet with Butta that Gurd was going to win in a few minutes, staking a chocolate nut bar. Time elapsed and Reacoom gave Butta the chocolate bar.

Confronting Vegeta

After Vegeta killed Gurd, Reacoom fought him. He initially appeared at a disadvantage, with Vegeta, when he lost his armor, and later a part of his hair, but Reacoom beat Vegeta up so bad that Kuririn and Gohan were forced to step in, saving Vegeta from Reacoom's Eraser Gun.

Confronting Gohan

Recoome nearly killed Kuririn with one kick and fought Gohan, beating him up. Not even Gohan's hidden powers were enough to defeat him. He bullied and beat Gohan in much the same way Nappa did, dominating the boy and sitting on him, and like Nappa, farted very loud several times on the child (which is made even worse as one of Vegeta's attacks left Reacoom's clothes damaged, revealing his bare buttocks). He used an attack known in the games as "Reacoom Renegade Bomber" on Gohan. As Gohan moved in for a final attack, Reacoom jumped over him and kicked him, breaking his neck.

Confronting Goku

Just when he had Vegeta, Gohan, and Kuririn at his mercy, Son Goku arrived on Namek, spinning Reacoom around when he arrived at the battlefield. As Goku gave Kuririn and Gohan Senzu Beans, he threw one to Vegeta (as a reward for saving Kuririn and Gohan from Guldo). Recoome tried to catch it in his mouth, but missed. As Goku turned to face Reacoom, the Ginyu member taunts him, flipping him the bird and mocking his son's pathetic performance. Reacoom was unable to land a blow on Goku and then powered up for his ultimate attack (revealed to be a sort of energy explosion in the Tenkaichi games) but, seeing this as an opening, Goku elbowed him in the stomach while the giant was distracted, knocking him out cold with one hit.

After Goku easily defeated Butta, causing Jheese to run away, Vegeta killed Butta and then killed Reacoom with an energy wave. It appeared to completely destroy his body, however his corpse was later seen by Gohan, fully intact, as he took Piccolo back toward the ship during Goku's fight with Frieza.

After Death

After his death, Reacoom appeared alongside Butta, Jheese, and Gurd as Kaio invited them over to his planet in the next dimension to see if Yamcha, Tenshinhan, and Chaozu could defeat them. Reacoom fought Yamcha, and was defeated with an energy wave, sending him flying through the clouds and into hell. This is to show how much stronger Yamcha and the others have gotten, as they were originally devastated with fear when they saw that they had to fight the Ginyu Force.

Great Saiyanman Saga

In the Great Saiyaman Saga, Recoome, along with Cell, Freeza, King Cold, Butta, Jheese, and Gurd, caused trouble in Hell and terrorized the ogres, but Goku and Paikuhan came to stop them. When Freeza sent the Ginyu Force after Goku, Goku defeated Reacoom last, elbowing him in the back of the neck, causing him to fall into the Bloody Pond. Later, Paikuhan threw him, Butta, Jheese, Gurd, and Cell onto the spike, impaling them, and all seven villains were locked up in a cell.

Kid Buu Saga

Reacoom was last seen in the Kid Buu Saga, in Hell alongside several dead villains, watching the battle between Goku and Kid Buu.

Dragonball GT

Reacoom made a brief cameo appearance along with several villains from the past in Dragon Ball GT. He was presumably defeated and sent back to Hell along with other villains.

Dragon Ball Z Abridged

In Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Reacoom is seen as a parody of wrestlers in WWE, with him taking great pride in his wrestling abilities and overall manliness. He appeared alongside the rest of the Ginyu force when ever they appeared, always referring to himself in 3rd person. He soon got to fight Vegeta after winning the opportunity in the Ginyu's game show "Wheel of Torture", commenting on how "the lucky little bastard (Guldo) got two of 'em." After Vegeta killed Guldo, Reacoom and Vegeta entered "Namekamania" (an obvious parody of Wrestlemania) and Reacoom taunted him by talking about how Vegeta boasted about being prince of a powerful race who were all dead and with his signature catchphrase "THE NAME'S, REACOOM, AND IT RHYMES, WITH DOOM. AND YOU'RE GONNA BE HURTIN. ALL. TOO. SOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!", only for Vegeta to tell him that Wrestling was fake. He and Vegeta fought (with Burter and Jheese providing commentary) and he won, using special attacks that were really just normal moves with his name shouted in front of them, like the "REACOOM ELBOW" or the "REACOOM KNEE", with him getting uglier and uglier every time someone landed a good hit, leading to Krillin actually being disgusted at the sight of him. He soon defeated all three warriors. When Goku showed up, he was getting more and more annoyed at how Goku choose to heal his friends instead of fight him, only to be swiftly defeated in one punch and later killed by a healed Vegeta.

Reacoom pounds Gohan with his bare buttocks

Despite his initial slightly brute attitude, Reacoom is actually quite intelligent, using flamboyant poses, bullying behavior, and intimidation to get an angry reaction out of his prey. He acts in a rather goofy demeanor, but it is a ploy to manipulate those around him.

In the Japanese and most other versions, Reacoom is signified by his rather intimidating, sadistic, yet somewhat childish voice. In the Funimation version, however, his voice is done in a way similar to a person who is mentally disabled. This has gained much criticism and controversy, especially noting as how his voice actor, Christopher Sabat, had originally used a voice more original to the character, apart from this gravely baking away from the character originally being quite intelligent.

Reacoom is often believed to be the most flamboyant of the Ginyu force, next to Captain Ginyu, due to their constant poses. He is very sadistic and crude, as noted by Jheese.

Powers and Abilities


Battle-damaged (Back)

Reacoom can shoot multiple energy based attacks, and flight like many other Dragon Ball Z villains. Some of his energy attacks are his Reacoom Eraser Gun, Reacoom Renegade Bomber, and, presumably his most powerful energy based attack is the Reacoom Fighting Bomber. The most notable about Reacoom is both his very thick hide, since he has been beaten up and suffers little to no damage and that he fought Vegeta, Gohan and Kuririn without any help from the Ginyu Force, and he has great physical strength.

Power Level

Reacoom is stated to have a power level of 71,000. Due to the fact that Freeza expected the Ginyu Force to be able to defeat Super Saiyan Goku (when they teamed up with Cell in Hell) it is likely that Reacoom's power has increased to that level.
