Self Demonstrating / Freeza

Go To
Like what you see? Just to warn you, this isn't even my final form.

"I doubt I need an introduction, but just in case, I am the mighty Frieza, and yes, all the horrible stories you've heard are true."
— According to most historical texts, this was indeed spoken by me. Of course, I don't recall ever saying such a line, but it does describe me quite aptly.

(Best read in Ryūsei Nakao's, Chris Ayres's, Daman Mills's, Gerardo Reyero's, or LittleKuriboh's voice)

Ohohohohoho! I see we have a new planet for me to conquer! You should feel lucky; letting you lowlifes live was my sole act of mercy. Besides, I may have a use for you in my army.

You probably don't even know who I am. Then let me introduce myself: My name is Freeza (though some have spelled that as "Frieza;" I can't imagine why), and I'm quite the renowned figure among the cosmos. Tell me, have you ever heard of the Planet Vegeta? Its population was growing a little bit too strong for their own good, so I wiped them out entirely. No one even knows the planet exists anymore, and I doubt anyone will remember yours if worst comes to worst.

Of course, let's not get ahead of ourselves. After all, what profit is there in a destroyed planet? You see, I run a rather successful business within the empire known as the Planet Trade. Entire worlds offered to the highest bidder, and I can personally guarantee that all indigenous sapient life will be eradicated before the ink dries. Though, back on the topic of Planet Vegeta.


Unfortunately, genocide isn't always a foolproof option. A sole member of the planet's species, the Saiyans, survived. I had attempted to destroy the so-called Super Saiyan before he could even come into existence. Unfortunately, not only did I have to deal with one, but another one showed up on this planet, too! And supposedly their numbers are multiplying?! INCONCEIVABLE! Why did I ever allow those filthy apes to survive even in smaller numbers?!


It doesn't matter. Even if I died before, I've simply been revived with the Dragon Balls. And now, I assure you that when the Super Saiyan does arrive, then I shall personally eliminate them. I happen to have been training in hell for some time. This time won't be like last time.

If you're looking for media portrayals of me, I found Ryūsei Nakao, Chris Ayres, and the latter's understudy Daman Mills to be quite capable. Pauline Newstone and Linda Young, however, have failed to understand that I am simply not female. If you're a Latin-American Spanish-speaking person, Gerardo Reyero is the one tasked with rendering me to your language. And despite the humorous changes to my character, I've found LittleKuriboh does a good job for the internet audience. Sometimes I privately find myself adopting traits of his style. I can't help it if they're so amusing.


Oh, what's this? So apparently that foolish prince has his own page! Huh, the elusive, dangerous dunce Majin Buu as well? How quaint. And although I have no idea man is, he seems oddly familiarnote . But don't you worry, by the time I'm done with all of them, I'll send them home crying. Like a little...bitch.note 

I suppose you'd like to know more about me. Very well, I'll indulge you.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Does it matter? People WILL do what I say whether they hate me or not... or they WON'T live long enough to regret their refusal. Just ask Vegeta.
  • Abusive Parents: My father King Cold didn't treat me well. Up until that Super Saiyan, no one had ever truly hurt me but him. I wouldn't even be surprised if he tried to replace me when I was dead.
  • Aliens Are Bastards: I make no apologies for what I've done. In fact, I'll have you know I enjoyed it.
  • Arc Villain: A whole chapter in history is devoted to my reign on Namek and another whole chapter is dedicated to my Resurrection.
  • Arch-Enemy: Some poor fool is always trying to claim to be one to me; I usually swat those fools with no problem. But the one who defeated me, the Super Saiyan formerly known as Kakarot... he is my arch enemy, and I will pay him in kind. Though I guess Vegeta would come second like he always does.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Who is my mother or do I even have one? The galaxy has been quite curious about that. Truth be told, I don't even really know. Berryblue, my nanny, is really the only maternal influence I've known or needed.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: From the day I was born I was always as strong as I am now... and was always destined to rule.
  • Ax-Crazy: It comes out... once or twice. Usually when I'm destroying a planet. Honestly, if you had that kind of power, I suppose you would, too.
  • Back from the Dead: I actually experienced this twice. First was thanks to my minions using the Dragon Balls. Then at the end of Dragon Ball Super, I get restored again as a reward for my contribution in the Tournament of Power. I just cannot stay dead. I am eternal!
  • Backstab Backfire: In retrospect, using the Super Saiyan's energy to try and kill him probably wasn't the smartest decision I ever made.
  • Badass Family: My prick of a brother was just as much a problem for the Saiyan monkey, and my old man is at least near my level. And of course there's my hybrid sort-of-clone Cell, who I'll begrudgingly admit left me in the dust until I started training. As for my son...I don't want to talk about it. *Facepalm*
  • Bad "Bad Acting": I'll admit, my improv when I told Broly his father had been killed by a stray blast in his fight with Goku wasn't very convincing, but the oaf was too trusting, so obviously he bought it.
  • Bad Boss
    • Insubordination will not be tolerated. I'd rather you never get the chance to be insubordinate again.
    • Benevolent Boss: On the other hand, if you're a good enough subordinate, I will reward you - just ask Captain Ginyu, Cheelai and Lemo.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Alien: I never wear shoes. Considering that my feet comprise of wide fingers and opposable thumbs (not unlike that of a monkey... I know), any boots that can properly fit them would make the casual stroll awkwardly painful at best... Besides, why rob myself the advantage of a kick that can hold onto the fool that challenges me straight after connecting with their insolent faces?
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: It's how I get away with destroying planets without me being on them.
  • Berserk Button: GOKU! THAT SIMIAN BASTARD! Well, anyone who's somehow more powerful than I am, especially when Vegeta of all people apparently managed to become this. I will NOT allow such a thing to exist!
  • Beware the Superman: I am a glorious specimen of power, so why should I not exercise my absolute dominance?
  • Big Bad
    • Oh, my yes. Without me, the entire Dragon Ball franchise wouldn't be possible if I hadn't destroyed Planet Vegeta. I was the villain of the Namek saga in Z and The Resurrection of F Saga in Super. In a sense, I suppose you owe me your thanks.
    • Disc-One Final Boss: Apparently Cell was the major enemy when the second Super Saiyan showed up, not me. Rather nice man, that Cell. Good company. I'll miss him.
    • The Red Ribbon Army's demise was indirectly my doing, but so was the greatest monster to sprout up from their ashes. The Namekian fission Piccolo occurred without my input but would have stayed shut in his prison had I not acted. Majin Buu predates me, though it is equally likely it would have remained sealed till the end of time if not for my escapades. And of course without Bardock's defiance of me there would be no Goku Black. I must admit The wizard Babadi, Demon King Dabura, biological Tuffle weapon Bebi and Planet Eater Moro would inevitably imperil future generations had I been around or not. My influence is merely unrivaled, not absolute.
  • Blood Knight: There's nothing more fun than cold-blooded murder.
  • Breakout Villain: With Vegeta being remembered most as The Rival, the role of iconic villain had to go to someone. I even returned years after I had died because of this.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: You'll have to forgive me, as I was always such a prodigy I never bothered to train. I assure you, I shall not make the same mistake twice.
  • Bishōnen Line: I have three forms aside from this one. The first two are hideous, but the third is more streamlined and smooth. And unlike my brother whose additional form is large and imposing, mine's a simple color change, with a bit of height and muscle for good measure.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: My race can generate clothes from our own body tissues. While this is very useful and allowed me to give my golden form its signature hue, it has unfortunately caused a rumor among the unwashed masses that I parade around in the nude while assuming my final form.
  • Cain and Abel: Don't get me started on Cooler, the prick.
  • The Caligula: I rule as I please, kill where I wish, destroy what I will. If anybody has a problem with that, well they won't live much longer.
  • Came Back Strong: Twice, actually. First as a cyborg, though I will admit that did not do me much good. Then through training when brought back to life.
  • Canon Foreigner: My Ancestor, Lord Chilled and my son, Kuriza, could both count as this since they both only appear in Spin-off material. CANON spin-off material, but still, spin-off material nonetheless. My brother is a more complicated case, since he appears in material that is conventionally not canon, but his first clash with that simian bastard really does fit in the timeline rather snugly.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Well, all the stories you've heard are true. I have no regrets.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: I don't like using 100% of my power. It tends to leave a heavy strain on me.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: So amusing. They want to see me at my best? They suffer for it.
  • The Comically Serious: Apparently a lot of you found my interactions with the Ginyu Force to be this. I suppose it's hard for an observer to not laugh as I struggle to tolerate their goofy antics.
  • Complete Monster: I will admit, I AM a monster... and I LOVE IT!!! See here if you want to see a tally of my sins.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: I can't help but wonder why people say this about me. It must've been because of earlier reports about me.
  • Cyborg: After being cut in half on Namek, I very much needed some replacement parts. But healing tanks have come a long way since then, and my body has been perfectly restored for my next showdown.
  • The Cynic: I fully expected Mister Son Goku and his meddlesome band of Z Warrior Samaritans to kick me straight back to Hell the moment I have served my purpose as promised in saving The Universe, much like how I once casually disposed of no longer useful pawns... only to be given the life that I was promised... Oh for sure, rebuilding My Criminal Empire and training once again to best My Dear Enemy Goku in combat is still the first order of the day... but perhaps, just perhaps, there may be some validity in his obstinate belief in Honor, Kindness, Friendship and other such naive sentimental hogwash after all...
  • Death by Irony: The irony of my actions in destroying the Saiyan race leading to a Super Saiyan being created is not lost on me. Though, having multiples is just cruel! And that's coming from me.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: And if they have a problem with it, they can take it up with my boot. If I wore boots that is.
  • Dirty Coward: My men have a horrible habit of cringing, begging and turning tailcoat whenever their lives are threatened. They probably picked it up from my dear father.
  • The Don: I am a legitimate businessman, just like that Sweet Old Olive Oil Merchant Mr Corleone who I had wine with last Sunday. He also understands the value of getting one's hands dirty, and is delightfully skilled at making Offers that Clients simply can't refuse. Pleasant old chap overall.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: I am generous enough to allow my pathetic father to keep calling himself "King Cold", as long as he stays out of my way. I have surpassed the fool long ago, and whenever he questions my decisions, I simply ignore him.
  • The Dreaded:
    • I am one of the most feared beings in the galaxy, second only to Majin Buu. Considering how most of Galactic civilization has forgotten about him, I suppose I might as well pass as Number 1.
    • I openly boasted to be the strongest in the universe, while secretly knowing to steer clear of Beerus, god of destruction, and Majin Buu. But those two are usually asleep, allowing me to do as I please.
    • Even Universe 2's gods feared me after I tortured one of their warriors. Isn't that something?
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The best solution to problems I can't solve normally. They make such lovely fireworks!
  • Enemy Mine: Ohohoho, is that Goku charging a Spirit Bomb at Jiren? Don't mind having some of my energy. I have plans to use the Tournament of Power for my own intentions, but I have to help that monkey out somehow. Besides, I still owed him for lending me energy on Planet Namek, even if I did attempt to use it against him. So now I have no debts left to repay.
  • Enraged by Idiocy: In those irreverent clowns' versions of events, Goku outfighting me alone wasn't enough to make me lose my composure. It was his asinine observations and complete misunderstanding of my words, words that broke the spirits of smarter men than him, that drove me truly mad. How does he function?
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: While father and I have never truly seen eye to eye, I do confess a certain fondness for my nanny Berryblue, who has attended to my needs since boyhood. Vaporize her for teasing me about my height, you say? (Kneecaps Troper with Death-Beam) The dear old dame faithfully awaited my return for twenty years since Vegeta's brat bisected me on Earth, Thank You Very Much! It stands to reason that any true gentleman would return the affections of the closest thing he has to a mother, yes?
  • Even Evil Has Standards
    • You're probably surprised by this, considering what I've admitted to on this page, but I do have standards; even I was surprised for a very brief moment when I realized this - in the first case, anyways.
      • I didn't approve of how the two Zenohs erased Universe 9 in such a carefree way. It's not the loss of life that I objected to - it's the fact that they didn't really seem to understand what they were doing. Even I know that blowing up a planet is a big deal, and I only do so as a last resort; I wouldn't even consider destroying a galaxy, much less a universenote .
      • While I do hate Goku and friends (the only real exceptions being Androids 17 and 18, mainly due to the fact that they weren't around before I was killed the first time, and they didn't really fight me when I came back to Earth to get my revenge), I know that the destruction of Universe 7 is the last thing I want. I'm more than willing to put aside my hatred of them for now - I guess it's a good thing that Goku stopped me from blowing up the Earth, seeing as how if I had been successful, Universe 7 would've lost by forfeit. I do have to wonder how he knew that I was going to do that, although considering that he's befriended both Majin Buu and Beerus, it doesn't surprise me in hindsight. It would've been preferable if he found some way to stop me without killing me a second time though.
      • Unlike the Saiyans, I at least let some of the races I conquer serve me; those monkeys practically sterilize entire races.
    • These standards were ones my father gave me - never run afoul of Majin Buu or Beerus the Destroyer. I've met the latter, and I've actually done a good job of both. And in his series proper, I'm pretty sure my father told me to extend them to that Black Man as well. And in the event that he sees this, I'm well aware of my position on the pecking order. For now. I don't fear the Zenohs because my father never told me about them. And even if he did, he probably wouldn't have known there were two now.
  • Evil Is Bigger: To be honest, I am actually smaller than most of my enemies in my usual form, but it does nothing to detract from my menace.
  • Evil Is Petty: I dislike hearing that lady Bulma call me a scumbag. Yes I am evil but I don't care for such lowly insults.
  • Faux Affably Evil
    • Just because I'm a, as a certain monkey once put it, a 'ruthless, heartless bastard' who's exterminated billions of races doesn't mean I have to be unpleasant. Not that others appreciate my charm: if anything they find it more unsettling. Hmm...I can live with that.
    • My abridged adaptation amped this up gloriously, making me funny while still just as ruthless and intimidating as canon. I think I might spare them when I inevitably destroy their world.
  • Final Solution: To the problem of Planet Vegeta.
  • Finger Gun: Using both full hands? Weaklings. I need only one finger from one hand to fire a better energy blast than yours.
  • For the Evulz
    • Some days, it's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. Genocide is easy, actually running things can be a pain...
    • Oh sure, I could just retire in luxury. But where's the fun in that? The rest of my family also follows this trope...Even my son does it, but to a lesser extent.
    • Although I joined Goku and his chumps in the Tournament of Power, don't think that I have changed one bit. I enjoyed watching a Yardratian nearly defeat Gohan, then I had fun torturing the pink guy. You should've seen the look on that Goddess of Destruction's face after I nearly decimated him.
  • Friendly Enemy: Notice that when speaking the Terran Japanese Language, I would consistently address Mister Son Goku as if he is my equal and use courteous and polite language when conversing with him. Granted, while I would still happily tear out his beating heart and force-feed it to one of his brats if given the chance, this is the same man who is able to best me in battle not once but twice; that fact alone entitles him to my sincere respect, if not admiration. I loathe to admit it, but when even loyal bootlickers like Mister Zarbon and Mister Dodoria are acquaintances at best, as my equal Mister Son Goku is probably the closest a God such as myself has to a "friend."
  • A Glass of Chianti: A good glass of red wine is just the thing I need some days. Oh don't bother asking; it isn't a vintage any human would be aware of.
  • A God Am I: With a whisk of my finger, planets become dust. Forget Beerus, for I am the true God of Destruction! Even Universe 9's Supreme Kai considered me a better candidate for the job than the one he was partnered with, but alas, Universe 9's gods aren't much of a reference point. No fun in wreaking havoc on a Universe when it's doing a bang-up job of wreaking havoc on itself.
  • Golden Super Mode: My ultimate evolution. Yes, I'm aware of the irony. It's intentional, as anything that monkey filth can do, I can do much better, let me assure you.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be
    • of my prouder moments. This has happened to me twice, actually. The first time, Goku somehow managed to get clever and trick me into slicing off my arm and lower torso with my own energy disk: the monkey laughed at me for it! I survived, of course, thanks to the latest cyborg technology at the time.
    • The second time I was not so lucky; that mysterious new Super Saiyan boy cut me in half vertically. And then into several more pieces. Now that I have been revived, those two are going to soon find themselves missing some very important parts...
  • Height Angst: It's... unfortunate that someone as magnificent as me has been cursed with such short stature. It bothered me enough that I once tried to gather Earth's Dragon Balls in an attempt to make myself five centimeters taller. By the way, should you ever breathe a word of this to anyone... there won't be enough of you left to bury.
  • Hero Killer: The earthling and Vegeta never stood a chance. The altered retelling of my resurrection even allowed me to strike three Namekians dead in a single shot!
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: As mentioned above, that pesky Sayian tricked me into slicing myself in half with my own energy disk!
  • Horned Humanoid: Though not in my final form.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: I am Dragon Ball's most well known villain. But it may shock you learn I didn't appear until about five years into its run.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed
    • This 530,000 power level before you? That's only a fraction of what I'm truly capable of.
    • Pulled again when I was fighting Goku in my final form. Neither of us were using our full strength (he could tell that much), but he had no idea how I was still holding back.
  • I Don't Pay You to Think: I'm perfectly fine with my men taking initiative, as long as they think it through. Pummeling a person to near death when they may have valuable information and killing off the only witness to an important secret are such examples of making foolish executive decisions.
  • I Have No Son!: My son, Kuriza, brings shame upon our entire family and my empire. FOR HELL'S SAKE, HE BECAME FRIENDS WITH ONE OF MY WORST ENEMY'S STUDENTS!
  • Immortality Seeker
    • I refuse to be taken by the ignobility of the Reaper! I will gain my wish for Complete Immortality, no matter how many worlds I have to crush!
    • Who Wants to Live Forever?: However after spending more than a decade completely motionless in Earth's hell... It... It's given me some perspective. I've decided I'm going to stay mortal until I've found something to actually do for eternity. I'd rather face the reaper again than regret not being able to.
  • Jerkass: I'm not a nice person. Just ask my minions or those filthy Saiyan monkeys.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: When I met my Universe 6 counterpart Frost in the Tournament of Power, I pretended to ally with him, just to eliminate Frost from the tournament. Why did I do this? Why do I do anything, it's fun.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Although I'm powerful, I know that to ensure my plan goes through as smoothly as possible, I need to make sure Jiren is out of the picture, although he seems to be more powerful than the very Gods of Destruction that I used to dreadfully fear. Don't tell anybody I gave my energy to Goku, okay?
    • I similarly declined to do battle with the fusion of Goku and Vegeta. Either one of them is enough to give me a challenge. Fighting a being who is several times stronger than both of them combined would have been downright suicidal.
  • Light Is Not Good: I am a glorious sculpture of ivory and purple. My golden form just adds to the splendor.
  • Locked Out of the Loop
    • Due to being dead for a long time, I missed out on quite a few plot developments.
      • In hindsight, I shouldn't have been surprised that Vegeta became a Super Saiyan. Probably should've thought fighting him and Goku back-to-back, seeing as how in hindsight, him and Vegeta are equals at SSGSS.
      • Wait, Goku and Vegeta can fuse together into an even more powerful being? ...I'll admit, it's probably a good thing that I didn't decide to pick a fight with them after they stopped me from blowing up that spacecraft. I'll have to think of something to deal with that.
  • Loophole Abuse: Oh, I'm not allowed to kill in the Tournament of Power? That's no fun. However, the rules say nothing about torturing them and there seems to be no consequences for what happens to warriors after they're rung out. I'm not that stupid.
  • Lost in Translation: Feminine? Homoerotic? Brutish? Me?! I can assure you I am a man of class, and very much male!
  • Made of Iron: I've survived being cut in half by own disc attack, the explosion of planet Namek, and a clash with a God of Destruction! I am Lord Freeza, and I do NOT die easily!
  • Manipulative Bastard: Towards that giant brute Broly. He appeared to be reaching his limit fighting Goku, but I recalled how that monkey turned Super Saiyan when his bald friend died. So I killed Broly's father and told him it was an accident caused by an errant energy blast. He bought it hook line and sinker, and I got to watch in delight as he unleashed his fury.
  • Mutants: Not just myself, but my entire family. It's why we're so powerful.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain
    • Destroying the planet Vegeta practically saved intelligent life in the universe. If you think I lack mercy you should have met one of those Saiyan brutes. If they were left to do as they please they would have gone from world to world sterilizing them of their native populations or blowing them up. I at least allow some of the people I conquer to join my army.
    • Had I not acted, Beerus The Destroyer would have stamped out the monkeys on his own time table. I acted before him in an effort to preserve my own station and in effect hastened my own downfall. I've come to learn many of my would be rivals, successors and even my then superiors would go on to meet similar fates at the hand of the Super Saiyan. Thank me for my blunder if it pleases you, my mistakes will be amended in due time.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: I'm considered pretty chilling. Not surprising, since I was designed from the author's greatest fears. This is still the case if I'm in a more comedic series, as you'll see here - I even have a larger file than that black man.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Should you choose to fight me, this will be your gift. A slow and painful torture session until you ultimately die, knowing you never stood a chance.
  • Oh, Crap!: I'll admit, I've had a few of these myself - usually when I'm on the receiving end of a situation involving a Super Saiyan.
  • Older than They Look: I'm at least in my seventies by your Earth calendar.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Only if they pose a danger, or are in the way of a good sell. I'm more than happy to let them live in servitude if they're willing to play nice and no one wants to buy their land.
  • One-Winged Angel: Three in total, each more powerful than the last. My case is a bit different, though. Those transformations aren't increasing my power; they're holding back reserves of power so I can control it.
  • Orcus on His Throne: I have much more important political business to do than get my hands dirty. Running a galactic organization is very taxing. If you want to face me, you'll have to go through my entire army first. And I assure you, if you survive that, then you won't survive me.
  • Painful Transformation: I won't bore you with the biological details, but yes. Transforming and undoing my limitations is very physically stressing. The most pain I've ever experienced in fact, before certain individuals came into my life...
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Do you expect me to cower just because you're all bigger than me? If I wanted I could kill you all with a single blow. Besides, it is only my first and true form's that aren't that tall to begin with. My second and third form, fittingly, tower above you lot, and my Golden Form is of average height.
  • Power Incontinence: If I have any flaws, it's this: my full power is not only too much to control, it's very taxing. To be fair, it's not as if I need it most of the time: mere fractions of my power are often enough to wipe lesser beings from existence. Fortunately, I have managed to address this flaw after my return from the dead. Unfortunately I had failed to notice my Golden form had the same issue, and so I had to work away that flaw again through vigorous mental training in Hell.
  • Power Limiter: The very form standing before you. I only open the floodgates when need be.
  • Rasputinian Death: Considering I can survive an innumerable amount of injuries, I'm afraid this will be the only way you could kill me.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: My race and I have red eyes to show how deadly we indeed are.
  • Revenge
    • The Super Saiyan must die.
    • Revenge Before Reason: My men warned that trying to get revenge on the Saiyans rather than trying to rebuild my empire was a mistake. To my irritation it turned out to be true, the only reason I lasted as long as I did was because Goku and Vegeta were too dumb to attack me together, and even when I attempted to blow up the Earth and them along with I only got sent back to Hell by Goku. I learned from that mistake since I came back to life again. Even though I have grown stronger I am not going to rush into a battle with Saiyans on my own again, their growth is too much of a risk.
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Ironically, the steps I had taken to prevent the legend of the Super Sayian from coming to fruition is what created the one being who could defeat me.
  • Shoot the Medic First: I'm sorry, but there will be no Namekian children giving you a chance at hope by allowing you to survive the nightmare beyond hell.
  • Shout-Out: My third form might have similarities to that so called 'perfect organism'.
  • Smug Super: I'm not being smug. I'm speaking the honest truth that no one can surpass my power.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: I typically task my much weaker underlings to carry out tasks for me, while they typically do the same. I simply have better things to do with my day than help them fight, like deciding which wine will pair well with my dinner.
  • Sphere of Destruction: My coveted Death Ball, and it's often the last thing a planet sees before I wipe it out.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: I am the Straight Man to the Ginyu Force's Wise Guy. I sometimes play this role to Son Goku, unless he's gotten serious.
  • Taking You with Me: Son Goku thought I was doing this when I tried to destroy Namek, but I was only planning to kill him. When it exploded he would die from the lack of air, but I can breathe in space so I would have survived. If he hadn't gotten lucky and gotten into one of the Ginyu Force's pods, he would have died along with the planet.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork
    • I was forced to cooperate with some of my most hated enemies during the Tournament of Power, including one Mister Son Goku. After all, having the universe erased would obviously not benefit me, and getting resurrected obviously would.
    • When I got to act as the Villain Protagonist in the villain storyline of Dragon Ball FighterZ I had some issues with Cell, a rather ironic depiction given anime fillers in the past depicted us with a Villainous Friendship. I beat and forced him to work for me, but the moment Goku showed up we started to fight over who got to kill him. Which of us wins depends on who the player picks.
  • Telekinesis: I can toss anything in my way aside with a thought.
  • Too Important to Walk: Honestly, I run such a tight ship that there is hardly any reason to even stand up. My personal hover vehicle is very comfortable.
  • Token Evil Teammate
    • Ohoho, evil you say? You could say that I joined Goku and his friends in the Tournament of Power, but obviously, I have my own intentions. It's quite fun messing with others, especially what I did with that wannabe clone of mine from Universe 6. Oh, and I enjoyed trapping Goku inside of that ball.
    • It's definitely Teeth-Clenched Teamwork - the only members of the team I don't have some feud with are Androids 17 and 18, and that's only because they weren't heroes while I was alive prior to my resurrection by Sorbet, and when I came back to Earth after said resurrection, they chose to stay out of the fightnote . I actually don't mind them. Although I wouldn't have guessed that Krillin would end up marrying 18.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • You thought I was horribly outmatched when the Androids came along? Think again, imbecile; I wasn't even trying. When the Dragonballs gave me life, it took just four months to surpass even Buu itself! I would've even beaten Goku if it weren't for my poor stamina.
    • Oh, you thought my poor stamina was a breaking point for me? Well while I was in Hell, I overcame that weakness, and when that fool Goku thought that I'd be in check by the time he recruited me to the Tournament of Power.
    • You thought that I would stop after the Tournament of Power? Hardly, I found a place to train similar to the Room of Spirit and Time, I trained for ten years in that room's dimension, during which two people wished to be the Universe's strongest warrior, well because I wasn't in the Universe's dimension at the time I was still more powerful than either of them as I demonstrated on one of them with my new form Black Frieza.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Well, a very small level. But during the Tournament of Power, I did my best to cooperate with my teammates, gave Son Goku my energy, and even rung myself out to defeat Jiren. I've also stopped vaporizing my minions at the slightest provocation. So long as they've unquestionably proven their undying loyalty to me I'm inclined to overlook the occasional... slip-up.
  • Twitchy Eye: My eye tends to twitch somewhat when I'm forced to recall... unpleasant memories. If you see it happening, it's a very good sign that you should drop whatever line of questioning you're pursuing.
  • Underestimating Badassery: If anyone's going to suffer through that, it'll be you before me. In fact, the reason I hate the Super Saiyan so much is because I did this to him. I will not make that mistake twice.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: The glorious power that held the galaxy in fear? I've never needed to train for it, it's my birthright.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Oh, just because I like to dress in purple and put on lipstick, that makes me a girl/ambiguous/gay? Maybe it does, or maybe stereotypes are bullshit, as Zarbon would say.
  • Villain Decay
    • My humiliation didn't end after that degenerate monkey bested me. Ever since then, I've been spat upon. My first death had me sliced like steak, and whenever I'm depicted in Hell I'm treated like a chump. That was until my revival, where I returned to my rightful place as Strongest in the Universe! Apologies, Gohan, I'm a god once more!
    • It is especially common in the timelines depicted in the non serial movies and electronic games to resurrect me, and not make me the main or even major threat to the monkeys. As far as I am concerned the only timelines that matter are those where my golden greatness over takes these pretenders and puts me back on top.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: I admit, it used to be a problem. When you're as strong as me and have killed everyone in your path, you don't tend to notice when someone bests you. Key phrase being "used to be."
  • Villainous Breakdown
    • While I am shamed to admit it, there were times on Namek I was... less then composed:
      • After the Earthlings used up the dragon balls and deprived me of my chance for immortality, I outright said I'd never been more angry than that moment. And I showed it.
      • After that accursed Saiyan dropped that giant energy bomb on me, I was furious to the point that I brutally murdered his best friend in front of him. In retrospect, that was a mistake.
      • When said Saiyan became the legendary Super Saiyan and began overwhelming me, I admit that I felt backed into a corner for the first time in my life. You can't blame for me for trying to blow up the planet to take him out.
    • Many years later, when Vegeta and Goku beat the crap out of me even in my Golden Form, I underwent another one and successfully destroyed Earth, taking that traitor with me. Well not with me, I was still alive. Damn Whis for rewinding time.
    • Few months after my second death, after Goku recruited me to the Tournament of Power, I was about to beat the second fiddle of Universe 11, when he decided to throw caution to the wind, and ascends to become a God of Destruction, after which he beat the crap out of me again. His Ball of Destruction was also quite a bit stronger than the one produced by what's-his-name from Universe 9. It would have erased my existence if killing wasn't illegal in the Tournament.
  • Villainous Friendship: Whenever I met Cell in filler arcs. Subverted in Dragon Ball FighterZ, where his arrogance made us far more hostile.
  • Villainous Valor: When I was brought back for the Tournament of Power. I was forced to work with my most hated enemies in contest with enemies who were more powerful than any of us. Despite that I still persevered.
    • When Goku tricked Broly into attacking me, I was pummeled by the brute for an hour. I didn't suffer any sort ov Villainous Breakdown, instead I simply marveled at his power.
  • Villain Respect
    • Well done, Son Goku, for achieving Godhood; I expected no less of the peasant whose hard-work, perseverance and courage allowed him to rise to challenge my nobility. You are truly a worthy son of your valorous father, Bardock. Ah, he was one of the few truly brave apes, taking on my entire army to save his precious planet. Not that it did him any good in the end. Your first offspring, Gohan, might not be as strong as you, but he's more than made up for it with his brains. Good thing, because if he had your levels of intelligence and didn't realize what I planned on doing, I would've turned on Universe 7 for real. I'll have to get back to you on the topic of your other son, since I don't know enough about him.
    • In fact, this trope is probably the reason why I didn't immediately decide to try and get revenge on the Saiyans after the end of the Universe Survival Arc - I've grown to respect Goku a lot. That and I needed time to rebuild my empire, as well as see what life was like after having been revived.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: After surviving the explosion of Namek and being rescued by my father, my top scientists used the best cybernetic components they could make to repair my body. It was supposed to make me 100 times more powerful than I was before; however, it apparently wasn't enough to defeat the new Super Saiyan I encountered on Earth.
  • Wham Line:
    • During the first round of my battle on Namek, Vegeta dropped this bombshell:
    "What are you waiting for? Transform."
    • During my fight with the Namekian, I used this sentence to convey how helpless the situation against me was:
    "Were you even aware that I had already transformed once before you arrived?"
    • Goku after pulling me from Hell for 24 hours, thought he can still control me by beating me up once I have exhausted my stamina. I only had this to say before he became very careful dealing with me.
    "Do you still think that Golden Freeza is a form that rapidly drains my stamina?"
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: I've recently forgone my wish for immortality. Why, you ask? Well, if being trapped in that repugnant pit that was Earth's Hell has taught me one thing, it's that not being able to die would likely result in unending misery...! So I suppose, though I utterly loath to admit it, death is something of a blessing in-disguise.
  • Wicked Cultured: I am quite refined and elegant, if not vicious. However, due to Dub Text and wrong voice casting, the original American dub didn't show me this way, instead making me sound feminine and raspy. Ironically, that dub showed my father as a sophisticated person, when he's actually one of the most brutish beings you'll ever see. Fortunately, the new dub corrected that oversight for both of us.
  • The Worf Effect: Unfortunately, I had to suffer this to show how dangerous those pesky androids were.
  • Worthy Opponent: I will graciously admit that it was Son Goku's perseverance, which allowed a gutter-born peasant warrior such as he to ascend past my omnipotent glory, that inspired me to similarly strive for self improvement for the first time in my life. As the only being to earn my respect, I am almost pained with regret that he will die by my hand one day... Almost.
  • Xenomorph Xerox: My third form looks a lot like another iconic deadly alien, like me.
  • You Have Failed Me: I will not tolerate weakness within my ranks, no cowardice, no insubordination, and no failure.

Well, I believe we have more pressing concerns to which to attend. I believe your planet has artifacts called Dragon Balls, seven in total, that when brought together are able to grant any wish, including immortality.


Are you going to hand them to me, or do things have to get messy?
