Golden Frieza uses the Golden Death Beam at the climax of his battle with Goku in order to kill the Saiyan, however Vegeta attacks Frieza, and so the tyrant dodges instead of finishing his attack. Frieza attempts to use the attack again to kill Goku when Vegeta passes him to Krillin, however Vegeta redirects it to Sorbet, resulting in the staff officer's death.
In the Tournament of Power, True Golden Frieza uses the Golden Death Beam with Goku's God Kamehameha, Vegeta's Final Flash, Gohan's Super Kamehameha, and Android 17's Photon Flash to form a Combined Energy Wave which is used to defeat Anilaza in a energy clash, forcing it out of the ring.
