"Now that I've opened the door to changing the rules, I can get away with anything! Welcome to the world of trickery, deception, and murder! This is my domain and soon it will be adorned with your blood!"
Frost (フロスト Furosuto) is a member of the Frieza Race and emperor of Universe 6 (former emperor in the anime), being that universe's version of Frieza. In the anime, he became a wanted fugitive after revealing himself as a space pirate. He's later erased due to the events of Tournament of Power after being betrayed by his Universe 7 counterpart, Frieza, but he is later revived with the rest of the contestants. Frost is a dirty fighter, who is extremely cunning and deceptive.
In his first form, Frost bears a heavy resemblance to the first form of Frieza, so much so that upon seeing him, Goku and Vegeta believe that he actually is Frieza. However, there are key differences from Frieza, most noticeably is that he is blue in skin color while his torso and head are pale-blue in color. Frost also does not have the full lips and wrinkles, has rounder and smoother ears, and does not have concentric circles in the skin around his arms. In addition, he only dons guards on his shoulders and at each hip, whereas Frieza wore a full torso of armor (though it is also possible that the "guards" are part of his skin). Frost also appears to wear some sort of boots and black pants, which might actually be his bare feet and naturally exposed lower-body. Frost has modified his wrists to contain holes that conceal retractable needles.
His transformations also take on similar appearances respectably to Frieza's. When entering his Assault Form (possibly his third form), while still taller than his first form, it is still much shorter than Frieza's third form. Frost has only one set of horns, which retains its shiny black appearance, and the back of his head is noticeably shorter than Frieza's. In his true form, much like Frieza's, Frost becomes very sleek and unimposing in appearance, regressing to the same height as his first form. His neck and face turn pale blue like his torso and head. Also, in his final form, Frost's arms and legs remain their previous colouring, unlike Frieza's pure body coloring in his true form. His wrists become smooth as well. His center chest and the top of his head being a very brightly and more bolded blue.
Frost portrays himself as a gentleman who respects his opponents while in combat. He does seem to have somewhat of a cocky side as he suggested to Goku after he overpowered him after his first transformation that he surrender lest he suffer more pain, claiming to be a pacifist as he even noted that he would rather avoid killing if at all possible. Similarly to Goku, Frost enjoys playing around with his opponents and testing them before using his full strength. Despite this, he is not so arrogant as to view himself as invincible, openly admitting to when he believes an individual can challenge his might.
Frost developed a genuine fondness of Frieza after witnessing the latter's power, and once betrayed by Frieza he was apparently genuinely hurt.
Even more than the manga, Frost acts as though he has a very caring nature to him. Throughout Universe 6, Frost has constantly used his empire and own sheer power to help end wars and save lives, becoming a hero and idol to many, particularly having a soft spot for children, refusing to give up in fear of destroying their hope. During the battle with Goku, he was saying to himself how he could not give up and would always stand up for the children who needed him the most, which is completely opposite of what Frieza would ever even consider.
"Yes, I start my own wars, but then I resolve them and buy up all the war-ravaged lands at bargain prices! After that, I make a killing off the very lucrative post-reconstruction profits! I'm telling ya, it's quite a business model I've cooked up, here. I'm the problem and the solution!"
However, in truth Frost is just like his tyrannical counterpart from the seventh universe, with Vegeta noting that no matter the universe "Frieza is still Frieza". Despite being the one to stop wars, he is also the one who discreetly starts them—only to "heroically" stop them in order to gain good publicity, and also so that he can buy out the war torn lands at a cheaper price. He is also a dirty fighter—using poison to gain an advantage when he is losing. Therefore, he is shown to be much more shrewd and cunning than Frieza, where he was able to fool almost everyone he meets, providing a fake image of a benevolent leader. Also like Frieza, Frost is shown to possess psychopathic qualities, seeing as how he takes sadistic pleasure in torturing Roshi, similar to how Frieza revels in the suffering of others. Nevertheless, like Frieza, Frost is shown to have some sense of honor, as when he was threatened to be killed by Hit if he refused joining Team Universe 6, he simply smiled and stated he would never refuse it, and would be gladly participating, since it would be a chance to redeem himself and, potentially, to restart his life without being a war criminal and fugitive. It also appears that his defeat in the previous tournament and time as a fugitive have humbled Frost quite a bit. When cornered and once proven outmatched by Hit, facing what he believed to be certain death, Frost calmly resigned himself to his fate and did not fight back. It is also worth noting that despite his vast power, Frost actually attempted to hide from the authorities, rather than fight them. However, after meeting Frieza shortly before the beginning of the Tournament of Power, he has a secret conversation with him, and the two former Universal Emperors agree to work together despite them being on opposing teams, indicating that his supposed change of heart may have just been another example of his manipulative nature. Even so, Frost throughout the tournament had no intention of betraying Universe 6.
Frost has a similar hatred towards Vegeta to the one Frieza has towards Goku, but in Frost's case, it's because of Vegeta humiliating him in the Tournament of Destroyers.
After Frieza's betrayal, Frost goes on to desperately attack the tyrant, only to be erased by the Zenos.
Unlike the anime, there is no mention of him being a space pirate nor an indication of him being evil, with Piccolo even noting that he does not sense any sort of evil intention from him and with Frost also trying to act gentlemanly towards others. His willingness to use his stingers stems from feeling threatened by an opponent - not viewing them as a weapon - and also because he greatly dislikes having to participate in the tournament, considering it a waste of time and wanting to get it over with. While labeled a cheater by others, he remained indifferent about it. Additionally, when fighting Vegeta he does not choose to utilize his weapons, and instead attempts to defeat the Saiyan in a fair hand-to-hand battle. Frost has been shown to be more arrogant towards Vegeta, saying he should not have challenged him in battle. After Frost has been taken down, Piccolo believes that Frost may start to become more and more like Frieza as time passes.
By the time of the Tournament of Power, Piccolo's assumption is correct, as when Frieza and Frost are discussing an alliance, Frost states that he likes to rule with an iron fist like Frieza does. Frost is later shown choking and beating the helpless Oregano, noting that he will have to shut up all of the warriors who have smart mouths on them.
Frost is rather obedient to Frieza by eliminating Krillin, Tien, as well as the Universe 9 fighters (save for the Trio De Dangers). In the end, Frost was eliminated by Frieza, although he was shocked and angry, he doesn't retaliate and get erased like he did in the anime.
Relationship with Frieza
Due to the fact that Frost and Frieza are universal counterparts, they have several similarities and are nearly identical in many ways. When they first met each other, Frieza seemed surprised that there was another Emperor that looked like him, and once they saw each other, both of them smiled. The two Emperors then conversed in private and presumably got to know each other, as Frieza noted they have several things in common. Frieza then asks if Frost would like to work with him, to which Frost says he would be delighted to.
Upon learning of the power Frieza had, Frost became enraptured in his counterpart's immense power, looking up to him as a role model. This feeling was not mutual, however, as Frieza in truth viewed Frost as an amateur in comparison to himself who was not worth teaming up with.
In the anime, he reveals this when he tricks Frost by "teaching" him how to power up, only to blast Frost out of the stage. Upon learning of Frieza's motives, Frost was enraged and attempted to blast him with a Chaos Beam, only for him to be erased by Zeno. In the manga Frieza uses Frost to eliminate numerous competitors before throwing him off the arena. When the tournament has ended and all of the universes are restored Frost angrily glares at Frieza, who smirks back at him.
According to the anime, Frost leads a peace-keeping force in order to "quell conflicts in Universe 6", though he was also the one to start the conflicts, after stopping his self-created wars he would go on to help children and war recovery efforts in order to trick people into thinking he is a hero, causing him to be awarded the "Universal Peace Prize" three times in recognition of his actions, he would then go on to gain ownership of the lands destroyed by war, thus increasing his control over the universe. One time, Frost fought alongside Cabba to stop space pirates on the planet Mayonnai, a group who in secret were part of an underground organization. It turned out, he was actually the leader of the pirates that he had stopped and it was a staged conflict. Another time, Frost encounters an evil-doer and unintentionally kills him while using his final form. Since then, Frost has tried to avoid using this form because he has trouble controlling his power.
Dragon Ball Super
Universe 6 Saga
Main article: Universe 6 Saga
Frost is selected by Vados to be part of Team Universe 6 to compete in the Tournament of Destroyers. Vados gets Frost to join his team by promising that if he wins, Champa will help Frost with his efforts of Galactic Peace. The day of the competition, Frost attends with the rest of his team: Hit, Cabba, Botamo, and Magetta. Before taking the exam that he is required to complete, Frost is watched by Goku and Vegeta, whom they believe to be Frieza. Upon hearing this, Frost glances at the two Saiyans. However, Frost doesn't pay too much attention. Frost sits down to begin the written exam required to participate in the tournament. After the ten minute time limit, he manages to pass the exam. He then watches the first match between Botamo and Universe 7's Goku.
Goku eventually beats Botamo by throwing him out of the ring. Frost is then told by Champa that he is the next combatant in the tournament. Before Frost and Goku begin their match, Frost and Goku wish each other good luck and shake each other's hands. As soon as the match is begun by the Referee, Frost rushes at Goku and they both start throwing blows at each other in rapid succession. They fight until Goku uppercuts Frost in the gut and kicks Frost to the ground. Goku thinks that Frost is trying to see what his true power is but Frost claims that he isn't. Goku suggests that Frost transforms into his final form, leaving Frost wondering how the Saiyan knew about his transformations. He learns that Goku fought someone similar to him, but requests not to speak about it. Frost then transforms into his "final form".
Frost wants Goku's approval on the form and he gets the okay. Before they continue their match, Frost wants to know if his other has beaten him but Goku decides to leave it be so Frost assumes he didn't win. Frost in this transformation continues to fight on par with Goku. Frost fires a finger beam at Goku and it sends him crashing to the ground. However, Goku hops up and transforms into a Super Saiyan, which shocks Frost. As Goku immediately charges at Frost, Frost is terrified and transforms again into his true final form. In the anime he is completely outclassed by Super Saiyan Goku as he kept on taking punches from Goku but still could not land a punch on him. In the manga Frost manages to keep up with Goku without taking too much damage, though he remains at a disadvantage power-wise. Outmatched regardless, Frost suddenly delivers a strange punch towards Goku and using poison, leaves Goku weak and dizzy, leaving him unguarded and allowing Frost to kick Goku out of the ring, causing the Saiyan to lose. After his victory, Frost congratulates Goku for his time and raises Goku's hand.
His next match is against Piccolo. In the anime, Frost first charges towards Piccolo but Piccolo vanishes and moves above Frost where he starts to prepare his Special Beam Cannon. Frost then fires multiple Chaos Beams at Piccolo but Piccolo dodges all of them except for one which pierced his right leg, causing him to fall back on the ground. Piccolo then uses an advanced cloning technique and Frost spins around and fires Chaos Beams at the clones in order to deduce which is Piccolo. Frost quickly gets tired of doing so and uses an explosive wave to wipe out all of the clones. Frost then begins to swiftly punch Piccolo, but Piccolo swiftly blocks the punches. Piccolo gets driven back by the swift attacks. Frost knocks Piccolo back and just as Frost is about to finish him off, Piccolo extends his left arm and traps Frost. Frost is unable to move, and Piccolo tells him that once he's finished charging his Special Beam Cannon, he'll fire it at Frost. Frost however then uses his poison against Piccolo, causing him to become extremely weak and drowsy. He attempts to fire the Special Beam Cannon, but since he's so drowsy it misses, and hits the barrier instead. Frost then finishes the match with an energy blast through the chest. In the manga Frost attacks Piccolo with a barrage of energy waves, though the Namekian dodges them all even before removing his weighted clothing. The two then engage in a long range battle, with Frost firing energy waves and Piccolo using his Demon Hand. Feeling threatened by Piccolo, Frost quickly charges him and uses his poison in order to win the match.
As Frost is about to be announced the winner, Jaco noticed something is wrong and suggests to the referee that Frost was using poison to win his matches. The referee checks Frost's body and discovers a needle concealed in his right arm much to everyone's surprise including Champa and Cabba. In the anime Frost then tells everyone about his dark side that he has kept hidden from everyone else by playing the part of a hero and acting kindly. Everyone is shocked by this, and all of the bystanders then boo Frost. It was then revealed by Vados that Frost was not a good person, he was actually similar to Frieza, Frost also revealed his true personality by giving an evil smirk towards Champa. Champa gets angry but eventually calms down after talking to Vados and then tells Frost if he beat Vegeta, he would support Frost in his goals. The referee intends to have Frost disqualified, but Vegeta tells the referee to let him continue in the tournament as Vegeta wanted to beat Frost himself. The fight then begins, with both fighters confident in their abilities. In the manga after being found out Frost simply states to Champa that he used his poison because he felt that he would lose if he did not, and also wanted the matches over with since there was no prize money. Vegeta then decides that he will fight and defeat Frost himself. As the match begins, Frost charges at Vegeta but Vegeta knocks him out of the barrier in just a single blow after he transforms into a Super Saiyan and Frost loses on the count of a ring out. In the manga Frost attempts to instead fight Super Saiyan Vegeta fairly in hand-to-hand combat, and manages to block a few of his attacks; however, he is launched heavily out of the ring by Vegeta with a kiai, causing him to lose consciousness and for a stretcher to need to come and pick him up.
In the anime, after the match, Frost tries to escape in Champa's cube and steal all of the riches his team was promised to share with, and if he were to take the cube, not even the Gods of Destruction nor the Galactic Patrol would be able to chase him, but is confronted by Hit. Frost is curious if the assassin was sent by Champa or even by survivors from a planet he destroyed that paid him off to kill him. Frost is hit with a technique by Hit and then rays of light appear out of him, preventing him from escaping. Afterwards, he is then carried by back to the tournament grounds by Hit, where Frost sits with the rest of his team, slouched over with his eyes closed.
Universe 6 loses the tournament due to Hit not wanting the cube anymore because of his entertaining match with Goku, so he loses his match with Monaka on purpose. Frost's life is threatened by Champa because they embarrassed him. Before he could destroy them, Champa's attention has been turned to the tournament where Zeno is present. After Champa's encounter with Zeno, Frost is still currently asleep and he is taken home by Vados and Champa.
"Future" Trunks Saga
Main article: "Future" Trunks Saga In the anime only, it is later revealed that Frost has become a fugitive in Universe 6, and despite the testimony from Cabba, he is on the run. Frost was also given a mention by Chi-Chi, who erroneously assumed that he was the one who hired Hit to come after Goku.
Universe Survival Saga
Main article: Universe Survival Saga
In the anime, Frost first appears while still a cloaked fugitive, living in the back-alleys of a rainy planet and hiding from the police. While living there, he is eventually approached by his old teammate Hit, who has come to recruit him for the Tournament of Power. Frost is initially very shocked, believing Hit has come to kill him, and seemingly accepts this as he believes he could never defeat the assassin. Nonetheless, he tries to defend himself using his poison needles, and when that fails, he attacks Hit with a quick flurry of attacks with his tail. Hit manages to dodge all of his attacks and catches Frost's tail, which also contained a needle. Frost sadly resigns himself to what he believes to be his impending death, but Hit instead informs the fugitive of the upcoming Tournament, and how Champa wants him to participate. He also compliments Frost on his improved prowess, commenting that his time on the run has made him a survivor, which would be a pivotal skill in the tournament, and admitting he actually had to get serious for a moment to dodge Frost's assault. Hit also adds that if Frost refuses, he will be killed on the spot. Glad to be given another chance at living, Frost accepts Hit's offer, and removes his poisoned needles when he is informed that cheating will amount to erasure on the spot.
At the stage, he bonds with Frieza - with the two noting how similar they are - and forms an alliance with him, in the manga Frost acknowledges that Frieza is his senior.
When the tournament began, in the anime Frost made his move by firing his Dirty Burst at an unknown opponent. In the manga he strangled Oregano with his tail and punched him repeatedly, noting that he would take down all of the smart mouthed fighters, he was then approached by Frieza, who stated that fighting was a pointless waste of stamina and that Frost should aim for the three Earthlings on Team Universe 7, as they were weaklings.
Afterwards, while Krillin is rejoicing in his victory after defeating Majora, he lands a surprise tail attack on the former, knocking him out of the tournament and managing to teleport away from a vengeful Android 18.
Frost, reminiscing what Champa said to him about not cheating before the tournament, comes out of hiding to do as he promised: disrupt Universe 7, humiliate them, and lead them to defeat without fail. Frost then spots Master Roshi and attacks him. While having some trouble with him at first, with Roshi using the Evil Containment Wave, Frost was lucky enough that he missed. While in shock that he underestimated the old man, he spots Vegeta, one of the strongest fighters of Universe 7. Torturing the now weakened Roshi, he shoots one of his Chaos Beams to Vegeta to get his attention. Knowing that he is no match for Vegeta, he summons Auta Magetta to his aid in order to defeat him. Working together to harm Vegeta, Roshi uses the Evil Containment Wave once more. Waiting for this very moment, Frost develops a new move in order to seal Vegeta. Torturing Roshi once more, Roshi actually manages to break Vegeta free, in which Vegeta transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. Seeing this, Frost immediately uses a ki smoke bomb and flees.
Frost later appears before Frieza and Gohan, after the former defeats Jimeze. Frost praises his "senpai's" performance and reveals his alliance with Frieza. In order to prove his loyalty, Frieza attacks Gohan, forcing him to use all his power while Frieza changes to his Golden form, seemingly winning against Gohan, and earning Frost's trust and praise at seeing his new form.
With Gohan laying on the ground, Frieza then teaches Frost how to power up to 100% Full Power and subsequently blasts him out of stage, after telling him not to trust anybody. After dropping out, Frieza reveals he always thought Frost was an amateur not actually worth joining forces with. Enraged at this, Frost attempts to fire a Chaos Beam attack at Frieza from the spectator bench and is erased on the spot by Zeno, who warns Champa to not to let it happen again, or the entirety of Universe 6 would get erased next time.
In the manga, when the Tournament begins Frost teams up with Frieza and is advised to take out the three bald men: Krillin, Tien Shinhan, Roshi. Frost then rushes at Krillin and easily kicks him out of the ring causing the first member of Universe 7 to fall. Tien and Master Roshi fight Frost but are overwhelmed. Tien fires his ultimate attack the full power Tri-Beam. However, Frost walks out unscathed and proceeds to knock Tien out of the ring. Frost is about to take out Master Roshi, but Goku steps in after Krillin's warning. Frieza tells Frost to get away though as he will deal with the Saiyans later. It is stated by Frieza that they will take turns. Frost will go first and then when he becomes tired Frieza will tag in. Afterward, Frost attacks Universe 9 and easily takes out Oregano with a ki blast. He begins to break up the teamwork shown by this Universe. Hyssop then begins to attack Frost and at first seems to overwhelm him, but Frost then manages to pick up Hyssop and Dragonthrow him into Roselle eliminating both of them from the tournament. Frost then eliminates Chappil with a single kick and eliminates Hop and Sorrel with multiple punches. At this point there are only four warriors left from Universe 9. Comfrey is the last warrior from Universe 9 to challenge Frost. He is Frost's greatest challenge yet. He states not to underestimate Universe 9 and he is beginning to win. Just when Comfrey thinks he has the upper hand, Frost eliminates him with a point-blank Explosive Wave. The Trio of Danger witnessing Frost's power and their lowering numbers retreat. Frost returns to Frieza and tells him to tag in, but Frieza has other intentions in mind. He reveals that their team up was all a lie by grabbing Frost's throat into a choke hold. Frieza then says to never trust anyone and kicks Frost off the arena. Frost is sent to the stands but is not as angry as he was in the anime as he does not break the rules. Frost remains in the stands and does not say anything when Hit is eliminated.

Universal Conflict Saga
Main article: Universal Conflict Saga
- Manga and Anime
Frost is one of the strongest warriors of Universe 6. While lacking a transformation beyond his true form like his Universe 7 counterpart and thereby making him much weaker overall in comparison, Frost's is still able to compete against Goku's base form power while not even using his own true power. During the Tournament of Destroyers in the manga, as third form Frost battles base Goku, it is stated by Vados that Frost is the strongest warrior in Universe 6 (though Cabba had yet to reach Super Saiyan, and Vados hadn't seen Hit powered up beyond his basic level) and that he is the best hand-to-hand combatant on Champa's team.
In his base form, Frost was able to catch base Goku off guard (albeit with a slightly unorthodox attack which involved grabbing Goku's neck with both of his legs). After witnessing Frost's might, Goku views his capacities as similar to Frieza, telling Frost that training a little would let him grow much stronger.
In the manga, in his first form, Frost is able to maneuver skillfully against base Goku (though not to his fullest), with Krillin noting he could not see the two of them fighting (Krillin previously could follow Super Saiyan Goku's fight against Perfect Cell). Once Frost transformed into his Assault Form, he was able to pressure and fight on par with base Goku, matching him blow for blow and managing to dodge all of Goku's ki based attacks. He was even able to fly through a Kamehameha with no visible damage and tackle Goku right in the chest.
In his final form, in the anime he is much weaker than the highly improved Super Saiyan Goku, who near-effortlessly pummeled Frost once getting relatively serious and without full power. Against Super Saiyan Vegeta, Frost was defeated in a single punch, and Vegeta admitted to holding back considerably, stating that Frost would have likely not survived at full power. However, Frost's stamina had depleted considerably from his previous two fights. In the manga, Frost does a lot better against Super Saiyan Goku, able to briefly go blow to blow with him and taking less damage from Goku's attacks, even withstanding a pressure point hit in the neck. He even managed to briefly exchange blows with Super Saiyan Vegeta before being defeated, as well as handle well against Piccolo.
In the Universe Survival Saga, Frost is later chosen by Champa to participate in the Tournament of Power. In the anime, due to being a fugitive, his survival skills have greatly improved and those abilities would be useful for Team Universe 6, as noted by Hit. He has also become stronger than before, as he forces Hit to get serious in order to dodge his rapid barrage of blows.
In the anime, during the Tournament of Power, he showed noticeable stealth, able to effortlessly sneak up on Krillin and knock him out of the arena with a Tail Attack and just as easily escape Android 18's pursuit. Later on, he was able to easily overpower Master Roshi, however a suppressed Frost was briefly knocked back when Master Roshi went into his Max Power state and caught him by surprise (noting his difficulty at restraining his power). He was able to briefly match Super Saiyan Vegeta in combat, further showing his growth compared to his previous fight against Vegeta. However, when Vegeta turned Super Saiyan Blue, Frost was terrified and quickly retreated. It was stated by Champa, that Frost is no match for Frieza. Upon seeing Golden Frieza, Frost was amazed by Frieza's power. Frieza stated that through training, Frost could achieve this state as well. Frieza teaches Frost how to transform into the 100% Full Power form, and Frost manages to learn this transformation in moments. Frost is then knocked out of the arena by a single ki blast from Frieza, however Frost had his guard down.
In the manga, is Frost quickly sneaks up and manages to easily kick Krillin out the arena and then easily overwhelms base Master Roshi and Tien Shinhan at the same time. He is strong enough to take Tien's full power Tri-Beam head on without it having any effect on him at all, before knocking Tien offstage with one punch. Using both hands Super Saiyan Goku blocks a punch from Frost that was going to be used to ring out Roshi, Super Saiyan Goku then states that he and Roshi will fight Frost together. Frieza notes that Goku could possibly be too much for Frost to handle, so he advises Frost to retreat. When firing a ki blast at Team Universe 9 by surprise, he knocks down some members of the team and knocks Oregano off the arena. With heavy effort, Frost caught the massive Hyssop's punch and subsequently throw him into Roselle, knocking both of them off the stage. He then immediately followed by easily kicking Chappil off. Frost then with only minor resistance in hand to hand knocked off Sorrel and Hop. Against Comfrey, Frost initially was in a stalemate and had a slight disadvantage in raw strength as their grappling began pushing Frost back. However, Frost defeated him by releasing an Explosive Wave. Seeing Frost's power, the Trio of Danger opt to retreat. While tired, Frieza easily used a choke hold and kick to knock Frost off the stage.
- Video games
In the Tournament of Time, final form Frost (from after the Tournament of Power) is able to hold an advantage over pre-Battle of Namek first form Frieza without using his full power - as he wants Frieza to transform so that he can humiliate him properly. In anger at Frieza not transforming, Frost eats the Fruit of the Tree of Might in order to power up - allowing him to easily outmatch the aforementioned Frieza, as well as Shallot and pre-Attack of the Saiyans Vegeta. Frieza continues to goad Frost, claiming he is too weak to force Frieza to transform, resulting in Frost eating another fruit from the Tree of Might and then another one, increasing his power further and then continuing to easily outmatch his three foes. However, Frost had eaten too many fruits from the Tree of Might in quick succession - which is self destructive to the body - allowing Frieza to easily kill the now-weakened Frost.

- First Form
Main article: Transforming Ability
This is the form that Frost is introduced in. In this state, Frost is a relatively short humanoid being, albeit with a large chestnut-shaped skull slightly with two horns that protrude at near 45 degree angles. He also has grey legs and a tail, which is relatively thick in width, able to crack the ground when slammed. He has indigo sections on his head, abdomen and the boots. His grey parts with lines appear on his cheeks as well as his lavender skin on his face, arms and hands. He dons the white wristbands, ankle bands and crotch guards with white sections with lines on the front. He has red eye pupils and unlike Frieza, he does not have the dark lips. He wears the variant of the upper-body natural armor that Frieza's army wears albeit from the white shoulder pads. Frost is able to hold his own but is slightly outmatched by Goku who is still in his base form and is not utilizing his full power.
- Hypothetical Second Form
Main article: Transforming Ability
Frost never transforms into this normal second form during any of his battles, though it makes a brief appearance in the bonus images of the Warriors from Universe 6! where Krillin is glad Frost didn't transform into his second form because he had bad memories with that form because of Frieza on Namek.
- Second Form
Main article: Transforming Ability
This form of Frost is the equivalent of Frieza's third form, though it is referred to as his Second Form in promotional material and artwork and is referred to as his Charging Form (Assault Form) in the anime. In this form, Frost's skull is elongated, his nose combines into his mouth to form a crude beak. His original horns don't change their shape and there isn't any spike growing out of his back and the armor on his shoulders fling themselves outward like shoulder pads with indigo sections. He uses it during his peace keeping efforts where he has to fight. Frost transforms into this after he is asked by Goku to show his true power. This form gives Frost even greater power and an edge over Goku's base form (although Goku was still warming up); however, he is sorely outclassed by the Super Saiyan form.
- Final Form
Frost's final form is the form that Frost is born in, being his "true" or "base" form. In this form, Frost becomes a short, white lizard-like, almost harmless-looking creature; his horns and spikes disappear and his physique becomes streamlined. Unlike his first form, Frost has the pure white boots, shins and wristbands and he has white skin on his face, abdomen with the lines on his cheeks remained intact, lavender skin on his arms and hands and indigo sections on shins head and abdomen and shins with poisonous needles in his wrists. He uses this form in response to Goku's Super Saiyan form. He has difficulty controlling his strength in this form, to the point that he once accidentally killed a foe - leading him to rarely ever use the form on someone who can't handle its power. Even in this form, Frost is still no match for Goku in strength and is unable to land any significant punches. However, he was still able to defeat Goku with the poisonous stingers that he possesses on his wrists, rendering Goku unable to fight back.

Like Frieza, he can also bulk up his body to stress all his energy in the extra strength if he so desires. Upon doing this, he grows noticeably taller and his muscles become engorged in size. Apparently new to this state, Frost is likely more susceptible to the side-effects of decrease in speed and/or stamina. It's unknown how much more powerful Frost would have been in this state, but there is presumably a great increase in strength and durability. Frost only displays this state in the anime.
- Secret Poison - Frost possesses retractable needles in holes in his wrists that are coated with poison. While Frost claimed that they were natural, the referee of the tournament stated that there were clear modifications. Other than the notable ones in his wrists and tail he also possessed one in his heel. He got rid of these needles just over four hours before the Tournament of Power.
- Right needle – The needle in Frost's "unfair hand", located in his right wrist, is used to make opponents drowsy, weak and unable to move in order to gain an advantage, and he uses this weapon to win against Goku and Piccolo. Later in the Universe Survival Saga, he displays the ability to shoot this needle at his foe.
- Left needle – In the anime, the needle in his left wrist possess highly acidic poison and is intended to kill. This needle is considered by Frost to be his "best weapon" and is only used when he is completely intent on taking down an opponent. He tries to use it against Vegeta but is knocked down before he has the chance.
- Tail needle – While on the run prior to the Tournament of Power Frost added a needle to his tail.
- Hit also mentioned there was a needle in his ankle.
- Fruit of the Tree of Might - After taking control of the Frieza Force during the Touenament of Time, Frost was supplied the method of creating Fruit of the Tree of Might by Turles. Frost used a total of three during his battle with Frieza.

- Frost is the only DLC playable character in Xenoverse 2 to have 2 Skillsets, while the other DLC characters have only 1 Skillset each. However, these skillsets represent Frost's nature: Final Form 1 represents Frost's fake noble persona, while Final Form 2 represents Frost's true evil persona. He even has special dialog with certain characters such as Cabba, Goku, and Vegeta based on the skillset being used.
- If Goku fights against Final Form 1 Frost, he will comment how he never imagined there could be a good Frieza while Frost says it is an honor to fight with a warrior such as him. If Goku fights against Final Form 2 Frost, Goku will say "Hey! So you really are a bad guy after all!" and Frost will respond by cackling and saying "You said it not me."
- If Vegeta fights Final Form 1 Frost, Vegeta will say "Hmph. I don't care what universe we're talking about. Frieza could never be "good"!", while Frost says "Let's give it our all and truly make this a battle to remember". If Vegeta fights Final Form 2 Frost, he will call him a bastard while Frost admits his true nature by saying "Yes, I break the rules. Yes, I murder my opponents. Welcome to me!"
- If Cabba fights Final Form 1 Frost, he says he is looking forward to fighting Frost in a respectful manner and Frost politely agrees. If Cabba fights Final Form 2, Cabba is angry at Frost for deceiving him, while Frost tells him not to get so worked up and that Cabba should blame himself for being so naïve.
- In the anime, Frost is the only participant in the Tournament of Power to be erased without having his universe erased at the same time.
