|Fifth||Voice: Ryūsei Nakao|
Frieza is introduced in the series as a powerful galactic overlord who is involved in the Planet Trade Organization in which the Saiyans, the main antagonists prior, were members. He rules a vast empire that has control over what has been said to be over 79 planets up until his death (Vegeta visited Planet Frieza 79 briefly after his defeat on Earth. At the time, Frieza himself was using that planet as a base, but was absent while making his way to Namek. Not all Frieza-dominated worlds, such as Planet Vegeta, were numbered). While the manga and anime never specify exactly how large of a region Frieza oversees, only implying that he controlled at least 79 planets. However, his brother Cooler states that Frieza ruled the northern quadrant of the universe in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge. Frieza creates many armies from the planets that he conquers, though his most utilized race were the Saiyans. Frieza had heard about the legend of the Super Saiyan, a being with unrivaled power and the only single warrior that could pose a threat to him, but dismissed it as simple mythology; however, after several Saiyans emerged with rapidly evolving potential, Frieza began to fear that the legend of the Super Saiyan would indeed come true. Thus, when confronted by Bardock, a Saiyan whose powers were growing, Frieza wiped out the Saiyan race by annihilating Planet Vegeta, the home world of the Saiyan race. After analyzing the Saiyans' battle against the Earth, his actions eventually lead him into conflict with the heroes of the series when he tries to take possession of the wish-granting Dragon Balls on Planet Namek. Though still no one could possibly contend with his power, Frieza's fears were realized when he caused the emergence of the mythical Super Saiyan and was defeated by him in a terrific, planet-shattering engagement. Goku, who had escaped Frieza's attempt to destroy the Saiyans, had become the Super Saiyan, ironically, through Frieza's own evil actions.
|"I doubt I need an introduction, but just in case, I am Lord Frieza, and yes, all the horrible stories you've heard are true."
— Frieza, in "Namek's Defense"
At his core, Frieza relishes death and destruction, as he shows in his enjoyment of Planet Vegeta's destruction. He is notable for being one of the most sadistic characters in the series, and often tries to make his enemies suffer before he kills them. Like any of the other villains in Dragon Ball Z, Frieza also has an ego to match his power. He also has a sardonic wit and explains in "Face Off on Namek" that the three things he refuses to tolerate are cowardice, bad haircuts and military insurrection, and is quick to declare that Vegeta possesses all three of these qualities. He also utilizes dark humor at times, such as saying "Long live the King!" shortly after killing King Vegeta, as well as saying "Pop goes the weasel!" shortly after violently murdering Krillin. Frieza is also fully aware of his reputation for brutality, and makes no effort to deny them, as evidenced by his introduction to the Namekians. Despite his cold-heartedness and numerous observations by other characters that he cares about no one but himself, Frieza does make several displays of respect towards his father, King Cold, implying that he is not threatened by family (especially considering it is stated in a Budokai Tenkaichi 3 biography that Cold is in fact stronger than Frieza; his mention of his parents being able to cause pain to his true form, as well as Piccolo's statement of a stronger power being with Frieza during his appearance on Earth before Future Trunks' appearance implies that this may be the case in the main series as well). However, even this respect is not absolute, as even after King Cold is introduced, Frieza continues to dub himself the most powerful being of his time, despite other characters being superior to him in strength, and even his own admission that his father was able to cause him pain in his final form.
In a narrative sense, this serves as a counter to the simple-natured, peaceful personality of Goku, but whether this was done intentionally is unknown. Though often surprised, Frieza tends to react to situations quite evenly, and is only really driven over the edge once his full power starts to slip away and Super Saiyan Goku takes the upper hand in the final moments of their battle on Namek. Frieza takes full pride in his abilities, and often takes the opportunity to demonstrate them (e.g. not using limbs in some fights, killing enemies slowly, and so on).
Ironically, for all of Frieza's power and arrogance, he sometimes displays a paranoid attitude. He destroyed Planet Vegeta simply because of the growing myth of the existence of a Super Saiyan, though he utterly denies believing in this myth when the idea of one is brought up, as well as out of fear of a possible Saiyan revolt.
It should also be noted that in the Japanese version and English Kai dub, unlike most other primary villains, Frieza uses very polite, eloquent language rather than the more tough-talking style of most of the other villains. Despite these traits, he is quite cold-hearted, almost to the point of being machine-like in nature. He tends to view most problems and situations in an intellectual manner, as opposed to a manner of life or death (largely because his immense power causes him to believe he can easily defeat anyone the old fashioned way if he chooses to). This leads him to underestimate his foes, resulting in his eventual downfall. As a narcissist, he tends to be quite confident both in his abilities and his mind, and reacts violently to criticism. Ultimately, Frieza could be viewed as yet another example of a Machiavellian inspired ruler, with ruthless determination to achieve power.
Long before Frieza became emperor of the Universe, Bardock, who had been sent back in time by Frieza's Supernova, mentioned his existence several times and compared Frieza's ancestor Chilled to him, though Chilled was unaware of who Frieza was.
Frieza's father is a mutant with an abnormally high power level. Because of this, Frieza also possesses the mutants traits, and he and his father are the only ones among Frieza's race who possess the striking level of power and cruelty shown in the series. However, even among his family and the rest of his race, Frieza was a prodigy, with dormant power far surpassing even the likes of Majin Buu. Frieza used to fight with his parents, and it had not been since these training sessions that he had ever had to dust himself off after a fight. At some point in Frieza's past, he conquered at least 79 planets, and built an elite force of soldiers named the Ginyu Force. Frieza annexed the Saiyans into his Planet Trade Organization, and heard of the legends of the Super Saiyan and the Super Saiyan God, the former of which he had learned from his ancestor Chilled (who encountered and was defeated by one in the past). At some point Frieza also learned of Majin Buu, and of the incredible power that he possessed.
Main article: Genocide of the Saiyans
|"I say we torch the whole barrel of monkeys."
— Frieza to Zarbon about exterminating the Saiyan race after King Vegeta's rebellion.
Frieza had many races under his thumb in his planetary trade, but none were as prevalent as the Saiyans. Gifted with natural fighting ability, strength and the ability to become stronger after every battle, Saiyans became powerful weapons in Frieza's subjugation of planets, though Frieza noted they were never entirely loyal to him due to their pride. However, these very abilities made them a liability to the paranoid Frieza, afraid that, if left unchecked, the Saiyans could either unite and overwhelm him, or one day provide a warrior to rival Frieza himself - such as a Super Saiyan or a Super Saiyan God. Due to this, and also due to a past meeting with the God of Destruction Beerus, who asked him to wipe out the Planet Vegeta for him, he decided to wipe out the Planet and it's inhabitants despite his attendant saying that it would be a shame to waste such powerful warriors. He also ended up forcing King Vegeta into giving him his son, Vegeta, as part of their continued "cooperation", although King Vegeta secretly intended to betray Frieza before he could ever let him have his son. Frieza then searched for a time where almost all of the Saiyans will be on Planet Vegeta, so that he can wipe all of them out at once. His attendant tells him that almost all of the Saiyans will be on the Planet in one month's time, and so Frieza decides to blow it up then. Also making a plan to tell any of the remaining Saiyans he keeps alive that the planet was destroyed by a giant meteor.
Hearing the accomplishments of the low-level Saiyan Bardock and acting on his own fears of the Super Saiyan legends (including that of the Super Saiyan God), Frieza resolves to eliminate all possible threats. Zarbon suggests that he wipe out the Saiyans. He sends his henchman Dodoria and his elites to assassinate Bardock and his team, while Frieza himself sets a course to Planet Vegeta. On his arrival, King Vegeta and his men attempt an uprising both to end Frieza's reign and to rescue Prince Vegeta, but it ended disastrously with the King and his soldiers being slaughtered by Frieza as Zarbon and Dodoria watch.
As Frieza arrived in the planet's orbit, Frieza suspected that the rest of the Saiyans will attempt to emulate King Vegeta's approach and commit a full-scale uprising, a suspicion confirmed when he was confronted by a charging Bardock, lunging through the fields of Frieza's men, and in defiance of the tyrant, even goes as far as to fire a Final Spirit Cannon at Frieza after giving a heart-felt speech declaring that the Saiyan race is going to stop working for Frieza. The tyrant retaliated by laughing maniacally with insane glee as he prepared a Supernova to annihilate the planet. The attack consumes Bardock and some of his men as it buries itself deep beneath the planet's surface resulting in a massive explosion, eradicating nearly every Saiyan.
After the planet's explosion, a story was fabricated to ensure the loyalty of the few remaining Saiyans Frieza had kept in his employ as a convenience: Vegeta, Raditz and Nappa. According to the myth that was created, a meteor hit Planet Vegeta and destroyed it that very day. Another version of the story is that it was the benevolent guardian of Planet Vegeta, ashamed at the immorality of the Saiyans, who summoned meteors to impact and destroy the planet and the Saiyan race. Despite these stories, Frieza's destruction of the Saiyans is a rumor that Vegeta heard before the events of Dragon Ball Z, as shown in a flashback during the Frieza Saga (although this might be a form of retroactive continuity, as Vegeta seemed to be unaware of this until Dodoria's confession before his death).
At one point, Frieza destroyed an entire planet and the rebellious race who lived on it with a single gigantic energy ball that he fired from his index finger. Vegeta witnessed this event, which caused him to become scared of Frieza's power and put his plans to assassinate Frieza on a hiatus.
At one point prior to the battle on Namek, Frieza witnessed a conflict between Vegeta and the Ginyu Force member Guldo unfolding and blasted Guldo away with a weak energy wave as he wished to speak with Vegeta. Frieza then ordered Vegeta to come with him to conquer a planet that Frieza had taken a liking too.
|"I desire but one tiny little wish, for the one thing I don't already have: the power of Eternal Life."
— Frieza to Moori, on Namek.
Twenty-five years later, Frieza spies on Vegeta's scouter during the Saiyan Saga and in doing so, learns of the existence of the Dragon Balls on Namek. Planning to obtain them and make a wish for immortality, Frieza arrives on Namek with his longtime comrades and top two highest ranking henchmen, Zarbon and Dodoria, in order to try and obtain the Dragon Balls from the Namekians. After Cui, Dodoria, and Zarbon fall to Vegeta, who had betrayed Frieza to collect the fabled items for his own ends, the Ginyu Force is summoned by Frieza to retrieve the Dragon Balls and neutralize the Saiyan rogue so that he can be brought to him. Ultimately, they fail to do so when Goku arrives on Planet Namek and fights them, eventually defeating them.
Ginyu did bring Frieza the Dragon Balls while his comrades fought, and he and Frieza attempted to summon the dragon, but had no success, coming to the conclusion that they needed some special password only a Namekian would know. While searching for the secret to unlock the power of the Dragon Balls, Frieza finds out that three Namekians are still alive by checking his scouter, so he speeds towards and arrives at Grand Elder Guru's home where he is confronted by Nail, the strongest of the Namekian warriors on the planet. Nail leads Frieza away from Guru, and fights Frieza, only for Frieza to horribly torture Nail, in an attempt to reveal the password of the Dragon Balls (and in the process, causes Guru's death under the strain of Frieza's torture). Frieza then leaves him to die after discovering the fight was a diversion for Dende to reveal the password to Krillin and Gohan as they take the Dragon Balls. Enraged, he follows in pursuit of the heroes only to find that Porunga, the Namekian Dragon is gone due to Guru's death. He confronts Vegeta, Krillin, Gohan, and Dende after Guru had passed away. He then faces off with a much more powerful Vegeta, who is now capable of possibly holding his own for a bit against Frieza's strength.
Spurred on by Vegeta, Frieza unveils his second form, allowing him to defeat Vegeta. After Frieza uses the Death Storm attack, he takes his time to decide who should die first, and chooses Krillin. He injures Krillin by impaling him and torturing him, then throwing him into the Namekian sea, taunting Gohan with his friend's limp body. Gohan responds in an incredible fury and proceeds to pound Frieza with punches, kicks and a barrage of ki blasts. Frieza then proceeds to pummel him as a response, and just before he can finish him off, Krillin, healed by Dende, shoots a Destructo Disk at his tail, chopping the tip of it off. Frieza chases Krillin in a diversion and returns to the others when Frieza decides to finish them off. Fortunately, Piccolo joins the battle and is able to go blow to blow with Frieza thanks to his fusion with Nail.
As Piccolo and Frieza fight, Piccolo is revealed to be holding back because of his weighted clothing. Eager to demonstrate even more of his power to Piccolo, Frieza again transforms, unlocking more of his power. Piccolo tries to outrun Frieza, but Frieza's speed is too much for Piccolo. Frieza then brutally attacks Piccolo with his Crazy Finger Beam. Gohan again gets angry, and fires the Full Power Masenko, which Frieza struggles with, but eventually deflects back. Piccolo protects Gohan by firing a blast at it, deflecting it away. Frieza notes Gohan's growing power, and notices he is a Saiyan, but doubts Vegeta is his father (he still believes that only Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta escaped Planet Vegeta's destruction), and finally he unveils his true form, stressing that he intended to give his foes the "pleasure" of observing it before they died; in the anime, he promises to show them "a terror greater than hell."
In his new form, Frieza first killed Dende, who Frieza had found out had been healing the heroes when he saw Dende healing Piccolo just before transforming into his final form. Piccolo, Krillin and Gohan attack Frieza, but Frieza easily dodges their flurry of kicks and punches. After receiving another Zenkai at his request, Vegeta announced himself as a Super Saiyan and fought Frieza, attempting to hit Frieza with an intense flurry of punches, however, Frieza's speed is still far too much for Vegeta to handle, leaving Vegeta in a quiet state of fear. With all his power, Vegeta fires a Final Burst Cannon at Frieza directly, but the tyrant was still far his superior and easily kicked the beam away. After Vegeta lost his hope, Frieza proceeds to punish him: Frieza tortures Vegeta by repeatedly punching Vegeta's spine while strangling him with his tail. As Piccolo, Krillin and Gohan watch in horror, in a sadistic manner, Frieza reminds them that they can assist Vegeta if they want to. Just as Frieza was about to slay Vegeta, the healed Goku arrives on the battlefield, ready to fight Frieza. Vegeta, believing that Goku had finally become a full-fledged Super Saiyan, taunts Frieza, even though he is too badly beaten to even stand. Frieza, proud of his past accomplishments, smirks before sending his Death Beam through the Saiyan Prince's heart. Teetering on the brink of death, Vegeta is able to tell the newly healed Goku of Frieza's genocide of the Saiyan race, imploring him to take revenge on behalf for all Saiyans.
As Vegeta finishes his plea to Goku, he finally dies from his injury. Goku, saddened by Vegeta's death, buries him and vows to finish Frieza. Goku and Frieza then spar, with Frieza realizing that his opponent is the son of the Saiyan that gave him such trouble years before. Goku and Frieza are an even match for a while (with the latter even admitting that Goku is the first person other than his parents to cause him pain in his true form), until Frieza determines and states that with 50%, he could easily defeat Goku, with Goku believing this is a bluff. Frieza then increases his power to 50% of his maximum, and easily beats Goku, with Goku completely unable to keep up. Goku attempts to use his Kaio-ken x10 during this battle, but Frieza stills beats him using half of his maximum power. Goku then goes desperate and attempts to use a Kaio-ken x20 and a Kamehameha attack, but to no significant avail (the best he could do was slightly char Frieza's hands), as Frieza easily diffuses the blast with 50% of his power. However, he does become alarmingly aware of his opponent's remarkable abilities.
It should be noted that in the English dub, Frieza states that he had only been fighting at 1% of his full power. Also, no reference is made in this dub to Frieza not using even a third of his power while battling Goku with x10 Kaio-ken. After taking another beating, a severely battered Goku attempts to create a large Spirit Bomb by calling on the energies of Namek's solar system as a final resort, as Namek did not have enough life on the planet to make the Spirit Bomb powerful. Piccolo is able to distract the tyrant long enough, kicking him into the ocean, and Goku is eventually able to heavily wound Frieza using the large Spirit Bomb.
With everyone believing the warlord to be dead, the heroes take the time to relax, until Krillin noticed that Frieza had emerged from the blast's crater, retaliating by mortally wounding Piccolo with a Death Beam (in the manga, Frieza intentionally fired at Piccolo, while in the anime, Frieza fired at Goku and then Piccolo pushed him out of the way and took the blast instead). Frieza then used his telekinetic powers to make Krillin fly into the air and, despite Goku's pleas, he murders Krillin. Already bordering on the edge of his rage, Goku was pushed over the edge, his rage exploding, causing Frieza to inadvertently create what he had always feared: a Super Saiyan.
In the ensuing battle, Super Saiyan Goku and Frieza trade blows, but as the fight progresses, Frieza's 50% power clearly proves to be less than adequate against the Super Saiyan; even his Barrage Death Beam have little effect on the newly empowered Saiyan. Frieza attempts to remind Goku that the Saiyans were as ruthless as Frieza himself is in their barbarism, to which Goku replies that the Saiyans have "paid for their mistakes" now, causing Frieza to ask whether that was the reason he killed them easily. In frustration, Frieza sends a Death Ball into the core of the planet, starting a chain reaction that would destroy Namek in five minutes (revealing immediately afterwards that he held back too much of his power for the Death Ball to be a complete success). Frieza unleashes 70% and then 100% of his power, which Goku requested, wanting to fight him using all his strength. Goku also notes that Frieza wanted it this way as well, because if he had not, he would have fired at the planet again. At this point, Frieza launches a terrific assault against Super Saiyan Goku, who had not expected Frieza's power to be as high as it is.
|"Poor stupid Saiyan. You honestly think you've won. Your puny mind never could understand. I am Frieza, the most powerful being in the Universe. And you are nothing but a beast. A fragile animal. You can't win because I am mighty, and you are not."|
However, Super Saiyan Goku realizes that after sustaining so much damage in his 50% state, Frieza's body would no longer be able to handle his 100% power for very long. Super Saiyan Goku and Frieza face off and eventually, after a very long battle, Super Saiyan Goku gets the battle under his control, delivering a final momentous blow to the tyrant that symbolically ends Frieza's reign. Seeing Frieza's power slipping fast now, Super Saiyan Goku decides to call off the fight, claiming it would be pointless to continue, as Frieza is losing strength rapidly and Super Saiyan Goku had already humbled the tyrant.
He also mentioned that he was holding back ever since Frieza achieved 100% to see what the form was capable of. Humiliated, Frieza refuses to relent, attacking Super Saiyan Goku with two of his Death Saucers. As Super Saiyan Goku dodges the attacks, Frieza ironically becomes distracted long enough to be bifurcated by his own attack.
Barely clinging to life, but desperate to survive, Frieza begs for mercy, which Super Saiyan Goku hesitantly provides, giving him a little of his ki. Frieza's pride refuses to allow him to be beaten and saved by a Saiyan "monkey", and he expends what little energy he has left to attack Goku. Overcome with anger, Super Saiyan Goku fires an Angry Kamehameha that consumes both Frieza's attack and what remains of him in the process.
|"I am Lord Frieza! None surpass me! No one even comes close! Etch this into your skull: I am Emperor of the Universe! The likes of you are only fit to grovel at my feet! Or better still, to die in disgrace at the hands of your master!"|
Unbeknownst to Goku and everyone else, Frieza was not killed on Namek. Frieza's shredded body floated in the planet's debris, kept company only by his thoughts of how the universe's conqueror had been thoroughly beaten by a lowly Saiyan. His father King Cold had crews search the area, not believing his son to have been destroyed by something as insignificant as the explosion of a planet. What could be found of Frieza is salvaged and reconstructed with cybernetic enhancements, leaving him scarred and bitter. Knowing he is now stronger than ever before, Frieza's first thought upon rehabilitation is revenge on those who defeated him on Namek.
Frieza beats Goku to Earth (despite his ill intentions towards Earth and all who lived there, Frieza notes It's a good planet on first viewing) and orders his henchmen to find and slaughter its inhabitants, with Frieza keen on killing his enemy's friends himself. However, his army is torn apart by a mysterious youth. Frieza dismisses his challenger as an insolent child, and pays him almost no heed until the boy reveals himself as another Super Saiyan.
Dumbstruck, Frieza makes several different efforts to kill the youth, such as energy blasts, each of which is parried easily (this occurs only in the anime while the youth wasted no time and killed Frieza after a single attack in the manga. Also, Gohan implies that Frieza was holding back 50% of his power in the manga whereas the anime has Frieza going all out). He then plays his trump card in the form of a Supernova (a Death Ball ten times the size of the one that destroyed Planet Namek). Even this is nonchalantly brushed away, until a mortified Frieza causes it to detonate with another shot of ki. Thinking him dead, both father and son are stunned when the youth fires a Burning Attack out of nowhere. Fuming, Frieza becomes oblivious to his opponent's position, and is surprised and sliced in half by the Saiyan youth before being cut to pieces and then vaporized with an energy blast, King Cold meets a similar fate, with the youth obliterating him with the God Breaker when the tyrant tries to attack him. Despite this, the common myth throughout the universe remains that Goku defeated Frieza on Namek.
Frieza's cells were collected by Dr. Gero's remote tracking device and used to create Cell, who notably gained Frieza's Death Beam. In the alternate future timelines of Future Trunks and Cell, it is implied that Future Goku used Instant Transmission to teleport to Earth and kill Frieza and his father King Cold instead of Trunks.
|"It's been a long time, Goku, and you've gotten so much cuter."
— Frieza mocks Goku about his diminutive appearance in GT
After his death, Frieza makes numerous cameo appearances throughout the remainder of the series from Hell. His first (and most major) role was teaming up with Cell and causing trouble in Hell, along with King Cold and the dead members of the Ginyu Force. Frieza and King Cold were the only two villains in this scene to not be thrown onto the Mountain of Needles by Pikkon; Pikkon knocked Frieza out with a single punch to the face after elbowing King Cold in the stomach. Then all seven were locked up in a prison cell. This was one of the rare times Frieza and Cell (two of the three main villains of the show) are seen talking to each other.
Frieza and Cell would occasionally train together in Hell.
Later, Frieza is shown observing Goku's fight with Kid Buu alongside other defeated villains from the series, even saying "I could have done the same thing if I hadn't lost both my legs!" When Frieza sees Goku winning against Kid Buu via the Spirit Bomb, he thinks to himself "Why am I not surprised?"
In Dragon Ball GT, Frieza teams up with Cell to act as a distraction for Goku while a horde of villains from the Z Fighters' past escape Hell, thanks to Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu's portal. Even when Frieza and Cell combine their forces to combat Goku, they both fall under Goku's might, with each of their most significant attacks failing after another. Eventually, after much bickering, Cell and Frieza use their newly made combination technique, the Hell's Buster, to launch Goku downwards into the darker realms of Hell where their opponent has to endure the Terrible Torture Tour. Frieza and Cell come to see Goku frozen after the final stage of the tour, but due to Goku being alive, his living energy heats the ice encasing his body. He then uses the snow machine of the Torture Tour to freeze Cell and Frieza, finally defeating them. Frieza was last seen with Cell being arrested by the ogres.

In the end, Frieza is challenged by Bardock himself, who survived the onslaught and wants revenge for the death of his crew. Bardock fires a Riot Javelin at Frieza, who makes a Supernova and cancels out Bardock's attack. Frieza then sends the ball straight into the core of the Planet Vegeta, wiping out almost the entire Saiyan race and many of his own henchmen.

|"Allow me to show you...My further evolution!"
— Frieza before transforming.
Frieza appears as the main antagonist of Revival of "F".
After Frieza's death, he was kept imprisoned in Hell, with the Angels of Hell being the ones who were tasked with ensuring that he remained captive. During his time in Hell Frieza retained his Mecha Frieza state and was left trapped inside a cocoon.
However, over 14 years after Frieza's demise, his two elite soldiers Sorbet and Tagoma collect all of the Dragon Balls and resurrect him, he is revived as he was just before his death, as Mecha Frieza and in pieces. Sorbet and Tagoma collect all of the pieces of Frieza and put the organic parts in a healing chamber, Frieza's body is regenerated and he reverts himself back into his first form.
As soon as Frieza's body is regenerated, he announces to his soldiers that he will not be satisfied until Goku and Trunks have both been killed. Tagoma then accidentally says something that he shouldn't, Frieza then angrily kills Tagoma with a quick Ki blast. Sorbet then informs Frieza that Goku's power has surpassed that of even Majin Buu, which is far more than Frieza could have imagined. But due to him being a self-proclaimed prodigy, Frieza thought that through training, he would be able to reach a level of power high enough to wipe out the Saiyans in the blink of an eye.
During his invasion of Earth, Frieza first appears in his first form with an army of at least one thousand soldiers. Later Frieza fights against Goku using his true form, with Frieza using a God of Destruction Super Energy Sphere-like attack and Goku trying to hold it off with a Kamehameha. Frieza also showcases a further transformation in the film.
Frieza's destruction of Planet Vegeta is shown from another point of view in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan (DBZ Movie #8) and Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock, and both Rasin and Lakasei from Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might (DBZ Movie #3) believe they would be strong enough to challenge Frieza after eating the fruit of the tree. Mecha Frieza appears in the credits of Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon, being sliced by Future Trunks. Frieza is mentioned in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, when the God of Destruction Beerus awakens from a long slumber and asks if Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta during his nap and is then told that a Saiyan (Goku) defeated Frieza. He is then shown when Beerus and Whis watch the past battle between Super Saiyan Goku and Frieza on Namek. 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 an invincible 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 however, in an alternate ending, Frieza kills Trunks and Vegeta. In another alternate ending, in the pre-fight with Frieza and Son Gohan, Frieza is easily over powering Gohan in the fight. Frieza ends up killing Gohan after punching the half-Saiyan in the stomach few times.
