Dragon Ball Wiki

Kado[1] (カド Kado) is a soldier in the Frieza Force. Along with his older twin brother Abo, he is one of the main antagonists of Dragon Ball: The Return of Son Goku and Friends!.


Kado is a large red humanoid with skinny arms. On his head, he has two horns and two large and pointy red ears. He wears Battle Armor and a has a violet scouter.


Like other members of the Frieza Force, they have a cocky nature and are quick to dismiss opposition by using their scouter to determine power level.

However, after having some sense knocked into them by Gotenks and Goku, he quickly has a change of heart and is shown to share a meal and have made peace with their enemies.



Kado and his brother Abo are soldiers who served under Frieza, ranking in the same tier as the Ginyu Force, as Vegeta explains in hindsight. When Frieza was on Namek looking for the Dragon Balls, Kado was on another planet, along with his brother. According to World Mission, he is a subordinate of Kuriza.

The Return of Son Goku and Friends![]

Two years after the defeat of Kid Buu, Vegeta's estranged brother Tarble, accompanied by his wife Gure, flee to Earth to seek Vegeta's assistance in defeating the brother duo, whom Tarble confesses have since become as powerful as Frieza and have been terrorizing a remote planet which he calls home.



Kado and Abo pursuit Tarble and Gure to Earth using Attack Balls, where Trunks and Goten are unleashed on the two. After struggles from both sides, Kado and Abo merge into Aka, prompting Trunks and Goten to fuse into Gotenks and incite another battle. When Aka begins to demonstrate more significantly devastating power, Goku and Vegeta prepare to destroy him, however a trick Goku plays on Vegeta results in Goku successfully being the one to vanquish Aka.

After their confrontation, Kado and Abo join the Dragon Team and their friends at Mr. Satan's ruined banquet, where they are seen eating Chi-Chi's radishes.

World Mission[]

Due to an anomaly, as Mecha Frieza and King Cold are about to be defeated, Frieza's son Kuriza arrives with Abo and Kado as backup.


During their time as minions of Frieza, Abo and Kado were ranked in the same tier as the Ginyu Force. In the time before they travel to Earth, according to Tarble, Abo and Kado have become as strong as their master Frieza was (presumably referring to first form Frieza).[2]


Kado is easily defeated by Trunks in his base form.


Abo and Kado are able to get the advantage over Goten and Trunks for a while after using clones, but after Gohan coaches the two young Saiyans to concentrate on their Ki, they manage to outmatch them.
