Cooler considers his army as being separate from his brother's and lists his conquered planets as "Cooler Planets", which are at least 256 in number, rather than "Frieza Planets". The Frieza Force seems to view Cooler's army as a rival to their own.
Like the Ginyu Force called upon by Frieza on Namek, Cooler's Armored Squadron compose the elder brother's own special fighting team. In the past, Cooler tested Salza against Captain Ginyu for the captain's position. These three warriors serve as Cooler's subordinates throughout the course of Cooler's Revenge. Their dress is the customary garb of soldiers in Frieza's military; an extended length of armor juts from their left shoulder, while the uniforms themselves are in Cooler's primary colors of purple and white. They are shown to have a habit of blocking or reflecting ki blasts rather than dodging them, Dore however tried to evade Piccolo's homing blast, but in the end he decided to block it and thus met his end. Piccolo eliminated all of the Cooler's Armored Squadron after Cooler's revenge for his family's demise on Earth failed.
After merging with the Big Gete Star and becoming Meta-Cooler Core, the Cooler Force became composed primarily of Cyclopian Guards and the Meta-Cooler Corps. After their conquest of New Namek failed, Vegeta destroys the chip which contained the memories of Cooler and ends the Cooler Force.
The biological members of this army, including Cooler himself, are shown to have escaped Hell in both Fusion Reborn in Age 774 and in the Super 17 Saga in Age 790 - but in both cases are killed and sent to Hell once again by the Dragon Team.

Video Game Appearances
In the video game Dragon Ball Z III: Ressen Jinzōningen, alongside his Armored Squadron, several other minor soldiers arrive on Earth with Cooler: Samo (an orange version of Fisshi), Keith (a purple alien), Maine (a green version of Neiz), and Ripper (a teal version of Dore). In the what-if story "Beautiful Treachery" in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Cooler has a messenger who is the same species as Cui. In the Extra Age scenario "The Revenge of Cooler" in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, Cooler brings three Frieza Soldiers with him to Earth. In the next scenario, "True Final Form", he summons a further three soldiers to replace the defeated three, and summons another one every time a soldier is defeated.
Cooler gains additional henchmen in several what-if scenarios in the Nintendo DS game Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2. In his own saga, he uses the Dragon Balls to revive the Ginyu Force, Dodoria, and Zarbon to act as his henchmen. In Gotenks' scenario, he uses a control device developed by the Big Gete Star to control Broly.
In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, the game world Cooler Force consisting of the game world Cooler and his Armored Squadron come to the aid of his nephew Kuriza and his henchmen Avo and Cado who due to an anomaly had come to Earth in Age 764 to assist King Cold and Mecha Frieza in fighting Beat and Note of the Dragon Ball Heroes team. Though Cooler admonishes his brother and father for being defeated despite assistance from Kuriza and his subordinates, after Beat and Note kill Salza, Neiz, and Dore, Golden Cooler allows Final Form Kuriza and Aka to fight alongside him, as a way of allowing Kuriza and Aka to regain their honor. However they are eventually killed by Beat and Note, though the pair are left exhausted from their battles with Mecha Frieza, King Cold, the Armored Squadron, Kuriza, Cooler, Avo, Cado, and Aka.
