- Chapter 2, Sub Chapter 3 - "An Unthinkable Appearance"
In the extra anomaly within the extra dimensional space found in the SDBH game world version Age 764, Avo and Cado are the underlings of Frieza's son Kuriza who comes to Earth to assist his father Mecha Frieza and grandfather King Cold against the two Dragon Ball Heroes, Beat and Note who stepped in due to Future Trunks being a no show as a result of a previous anomaly. However Kuriza and his subordinates are unable to prevent Frieza or Cold from being fatally injured, however they are saved by the sudden appearance of the Cooler Force. Though Cooler holds his own against the Heroes, his underlings are all slain, however Cooler is still confident he can prevail. Wanting to make up for his failure and get revenge on the Heroes, Kuriza asks his uncle to let him fight alongside him which Cooler allows with Kuriza taking on his Final Form, while Cooler reveals his anomalous Golden Cooler form. Wanting to make up for their failure as well, Avo and Cado decide to fuse into Aka, who is eager to join his master Kuriza and Golden Cooler in taking on the Heroes.
However Beat and Note manage to overcome the three villains who end up perishing as well. Due Aka's demise, Avo and Cado are also slain. However Beat and Note are left completely exhausted, forcing Great Saiyaman 3 to send their teammates Froze and Kagyu to help them exit the game world as the extra anomaly has been fixed. After they leave, the game world reverts back to normal and official history of Future Trunks slaying Mecha Frieza and King Cold is restored.
Aka is strong enough to effortlessly defeat Goten and Trunks (both in base form), and proves to be able to survive against Gotenks (including in his Super Saiyan form), though he is completely outmatched. He is also easily defeated with a single blow by Super Saiyan Goku.
