"Come to play house, little boy? Play nice now."
Abo (アボ Abo) is a soldier in the Frieza Force. Along with his brother Kado, he is one of the main antagonists of Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!.
Abo is a large blue humanoid with skinny arms. On his head, he has one horn and two large and pointy blue ears. He wears Battle Armor and has a violet scouter.
Like other members of the Frieza Force, they have a cocky nature and are quick to dismiss opposition by using their scouter to determine power level.
However, after having some sense knocked into them by Gotenks and Goku, he quickly has a change of heart and is shown to share a meal and have made peace with their enemies.
Abo and his brother, Kado, are soldiers who served under Frieza, ranking in the same tier as the Ginyu Force, as Vegeta explains in hindsight. When Frieza was on Namek looking for the Dragon Balls, Abo was on another planet, along with his brother. According to World Mission, he is a subordinate of Kuriza.
