Dragon Ball Wiki

Frieza's Elite (フリーザ様御一行 Furīza-sama go Ikkō) are a faction of soldiers representing the strongest members of the Frieza Force under the command of Emperor Frieza. Frieza is the self-proclaimed "Galactic Emperor" who spends hundreds of years controlling an interplanetary empire who ruled over 70% of Universe 7 before his death in Age 764.



Frieza and Zarbon

Frieza's Elite make their debut with the remnants of the Saiyan Army, first through Raditz, who is sent to Earth to investigate the planet's status and recover his brother Kakarot. However, Raditz makes no mention of Frieza, instead simply citing that the Saiyans are responsible for planet broking. Raditz's superiors Nappa and Vegeta show up not long after to attack Earth. Raditz is killed by Piccolo, Nappa is killed by Vegeta, while Vegeta defects from the army. It is not until the episode "Held Captive" that the universal threat Frieza poses is first described.


Frieza's aids; Dodoria and Zarbon, after escaping from Hell in Dragon Ball GT

Frieza's aides are Zarbon and Dodoria, who each act as his closest advisers and military commanders. In Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku, both Zarbon and Dodoria oversaw the destruction of the Saiyan race, with Zarbon suggesting the Saiyans be eliminated before they form a rebellion, and Dodoria participating in the extermination of one of the most powerful Saiyan platoon. The two are brought by Frieza on the mission to Namek along with one other elite soldier Cui, as well as a few other mid-level soldiers, such as Appule and Napple are also part of the Namek Invasion Task Force. Napple is killed by a Namekian warrior, and Vegeta executes Cui, Dodoria, Appule and Zarbon on Namek, although initially a transformation used by the latter gets the best of the Saiyan and capture him for Frieza.

The Ginyu Force are also among the elite employed by Frieza, serving as a High-Level Executive Class team, and are among the strongest of soldiers within Frieza's empire - with their captain Ginyu acting as the right-hand man of Frieza himself. They were all eventually wiped out by Vegeta, aside from Bonyu.

A group of elite soldiers simply referred to as Frieza's Subordinates are brought by Frieza and Cold during their invasion of Earth but all are wiped out by Future Trunks.

The brother duo Abo and Kado are also shown to be executives of Frieza's empire in Dragon Ball: The Return of Son Goku and Friends!.


Frieza along with Sorbet, Tagoma, and Shisami

In Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, a large remnant faction of Frieza's empire led by Sorbet revived Frieza and attacked Earth to gain revenge against the Saiyans. Those under Sorbet and Frieza's command included the elite soldiers Shisami, Tagoma (who himself later briefly became Frieza's right-hand man in the anime adaptation of said storyline, as he is killed by Frieza in both the film & manga adaptation) and Chidoru. The combatants were all killed by Frieza, while Sorbet was killed by Vegeta. In the Golden Frieza Saga of Dragon Ball Super, Captain Ginyu (who is still in the body of a Namekian Frog) uses a written version of his Body Change to steal Tagoma's body, allowing him to briefly regain his old position as Frieza's strongest underling thanks to his combat experience and Tagoma's powerful body. However, like his subordinates in the past, Ginyu is killed by Vegeta to prevent him from interfering in the fight with Frieza. Due to mistaking Vegeta's antagonism with Goku as a sign of loyalty, Frieza offers to forgive his past betrayal and make Vegeta his second-in-command if he assists him in killing Goku, though Vegeta outright refuses the position as he has no desire to serve under the tyrant again.

Frieza's Honor Guard were the most elite soldiers in Frieza's army and served directly under the command of Frieza and Cold. The guards appeared in Dragon Ball Super: Broly. A drunk combatant named Daigen also claimed to be the only full-fledged combatant on Frieza's spaceship as it headed to Earth to recover the Earth Dragon Balls for Frieza despite the presence of the higher ranking Frieza's Honor Guard. In Dragon Ball Online, these guard troops survived the falling apart of Frieza's empire and attempted to invade Earth in Age 820, and later joined the Time Breakers in an attempt to once more revive Frieza himself.

In Broly, Broly and Paragus were added as additional elites within Frieza's forces. However, Paragus was killed by Frieza himself and Broly defected. Additionally Berryblue and Kikono are also shown to have served as Frieza's advisors since the period of transition from the Cold Force to the Frieza Force following his father's retirement and passing on control to Frieza. In addition to being an advisor, Kikono is responsible for the development of Scouter technology which Frieza demonstrated to the Saiyan Army when he and his father visited Planet Vegeta to inform King Vegeta of King Cold's retirement while also showing the futility of opposing him by using a Scouter to find four Saiyan Army snipers whom he killed effortlessly with precision using his signature Death Beam.

Other Dragon Ball stories[]


The Future Warrior can train under Captain Ginyu and if they complete his training Frieza will appear in Toki Toki City allowing them to train under Frieza himself and upon completing Frieza's training he will appoint them as a member of his Honor Guard though permits them to continue with their Time Patrol duties as it would be disadvantageous for Frieza were history to be destroyed.

Xenoverse 2[]

The Future Warrior can work under two different incarnations of Frieza, one as an Time Patrol Academy Instructor and the other existing in a Time Rift anomaly created by Distorted Time Egg Towa had tricked a combatant into bringing aboard Frieza's Spaceship. The Future Warrior goes under cover as a new recruit along with several Time Patrollers, joining Frieza Force to investigate the cause. The Warrior must work their way up the ranks of the organization. In the rift, it is shown that Frieza permits his aids Zarbon and Dodoria to maintain their own factions using the infighting between his aids to weed out weakness from his ranks as well as encourage his subordinates to grow stronger in order to survive. The warrior can help their chosen faction defeat the other faction causing the aide they chose to serve to gain more prestige while Frieza forces the other to work among the rank and file members as a way to earn his respect with the understanding they will not get a second chance. Eventually the Warrior can challenge the aide they serve under and defeat them to gain Frieza's favor, though they and Frieza will spare the defeated aide who is not mad as they gain prestige due to the warrior having served under them and watch their progress as they rise thru the ranks.

Eventually, they are allowed to join the Ginyu Force before proving themselves to be stronger than the entire Ginyu Force which causes them to catch the eye of both Frieza and Cooler. Cooler hopes to recruit them to his forces while Frieza hopes to keep them as one of his top ranking subordinates. If the warrior chooses to stay with Frieza, they become Frieza's top aide and assist him in training in order to combat his brother for control of the universe, assisting Frieza in acquiring his Golden Frieza form and then confronting Cooler alongside him, resulting in Frieza's victory which ensures Frieza's dominance as Galactic Emperor. However, if the Future Warrior is of the Frieza Race they can challenge Frieza or Cooler if they selected him, for control over Universe 7. They defeat Frieza, though Frieza permits them to rule for the time being as they are a member of his race who Frieza sees as a worthy rival though plans to grow stronger and defeat them one day. Additionally, Frieza and Cooler assist the new Galactic Emperor in acquiring their Turn Golden form to ensure they remain in control as both brothers seek to defeat them one day though for the time being they consider the Warrior a member of the Frieza Clan, ensuring their family remains the Strongest in Space.

During Frieza's Siege on Conton City the Frieza Force from the rift timeline invades Conton City, though they apparently originate from earlier within said timeline as no mention is made of the Frieza Race Future Warrior becoming Emperor and they are viewed as still subordinate to Frieza regardless of race, though the Frieza Force members consider them a traitor for siding with the Time Patrol unaware they were an undercover agent. However, this does not effect the warrior's standing within the rift timeline itself. In addition to training under Frieza, the warrior in can train under Dodoria, Zarbon, and Captain Ginyu as Instructors. Cooler will also seek to train the Future Warrior in order to make them his subordinate, though they can train under both brothers if they choose to. Frieza even encourages the Warrior to train under Goku in the hopes of using them to acquire information on his enemy such as weaknesses Frieza could exploit to his advantage and even admires their willingness to train under different instructors in order to grow stronger as Frieza notes his own pride is to great to allow him to do the same. However, he will order them not to upset Beerus while they are training under him, permitting it only because Beerus recognizes the Warrior's potential. It should be noted that the Future Warriors in both games are not truly loyal to Frieza's Elite and only go along with it as part of their Time Patrol duties and training, though Frieza and his underlings consider them to be part of the organization.

Frieza and his elites end up forming an alliance with Cell who also desires revenge on both the Z Fighters and Android 21. However, Frieza treats Cell as more of a partner than subordinate while his men tend to dislike Cell viewing him as disrespectful and a potential enemy, though work alongside him as long as Frieza wills it. At the insistence of the soul inside Frieza, Frieza and Cell are eventually forced to declare a truce with the Z Fighters in order to combat the threat posed by 21, which both sides accept albeit begrudgingly due to their past history while Gotenks and Majin Buu are more willingly to go along with it due to being less familiar with the villains and their past evil actions. Frieza eventually realizes that the clones are a temporary food source for 21 and the alliance decide targeting them is the best why to lure out 21 in addition to preventing her from growing any strong through consuming clones. This angers 21, who targets the heroes and villains due to both her anger and hunger. They have Bulma use her machine to counteract to waves at maximum output in hopes of regaining their full strength though it only works on Frieza, Cell, and Goku leaving their allies weakened and unable to fight, though Goku, Frieza, and Cell destroy 21 with a combined Energy Wave.
