"Y'know, these have been the most exciting few days I've had since I joined the Frieza Force."
Lemo (レモ Remo) is an old veteran in the Frieza Force.
Lemo appears as an orange-skinned humanoid wearing the Saiyan armor, with no shoulder plates, white outlines and a green section on his torso, dark green slim trousers, a woolly hat, white gloves and shoes which those letters end by a green section. He is shown to have a blue Scouter. He has large yellow eyes with slitted pupils.
Lemo wants to do something about Broly but knows his own limits. As a veteran Rear Guard who survived years of service in the Frieza Force, he is aware of how dangerous an angry Frieza is and warns Cheelai to watch her tongue when she offhandedly mentions rumors regarding Frieza's short height, as he knows full well Frieza has a history of executing soldiers that dare to mock his height. He is also more logic oriented than Cheelai as he tried to keep Cheelai from confronting Paragus over the shock collar and from confronting him over his refusal to let Broly chat. He and Cheelai form a friendship with Broly. He noted that Broly was pure and innocent like nothing he had ever seen before, after learning the origin of Broly's pelt and he voiced his opinion that Paragus probably only saw Broly as a weapon as did Cheelai. He also said that his own father was a real jerk, like Paragus, though he noted that Paragus was likely even worse. He noted that since Broly's fighting potential was high, Paragus must have forced him to train. He also told Broly that he didn't have to listen to his father, but Broly refused to speak ill of his father. While Broly was fighting Goku and Vegeta, he noted that he wasn't himself. Cheelai blamed Paragus for it, which Lemo agreed with.
Lemo has served in the Frieza Force for decades, being an old veteran of the rear guard who served King Cold. By Frieza's time he was a non-combatant and so had never met Frieza - only ever having glimpsed him at their space station, he was however present during King Cold's handing over control of the Saiyan Army to Frieza on Planet Vegeta, being seen as the one who hold and open the briefcase which had the first Scouters that the Saiyans were ever afforded with.
Dragon Ball Super
Main articles: Broly Saga and Bonus Story (Great Escape) During the "Bonus Story 4" chapter of the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, when Goku is recounting the events of the Broly Saga to Merus and Jaco, Lemo is seen with Cheelai just when they make a wish to Shenron to send Broly back to Vampa before Broly would've been annihilated by Gogeta's Full Force Kamehameha.
Main article: Dragon Ball Super: Broly Lemo pilots a ship through space on a mission to find strong fighters for the Frieza Force but struggle in their search. Lemo asks Cheelai why she decided to join the Frieza Force and she tells him that it was because she had previously been caught stealing a Galactic Patrol space ship but nobody would dare touch her while she was under Frieza. Cheelai asks if Lemo has ever seen Frieza to which he says that he has only seen him once aboard the station, then shouts at her when she calls Frieza tiny, telling her to never say it again if she wishes to live.
The ship picks up a distress signal from another ship located on Vampa and the two set down in order to see if they can find anyone hopeful of receiving a reward later on. They soon spot Paragus on the planet and Lemo asks if he is a Saiyan which he confirms. When a Vampa Beetle shows up above their spaceship, Broly bursts on to the scene by killing the creature with a single blow. Unable to read Broly's power, Lemo and Cheelai become excited and immediately take the father and son to Frieza.
Aboard Frieza's spaceship, Cheelai and Lemo receive their reward and then head to the canteen. One of the fellow soldiers aboard the ship, drunk, attempts to force Cheelai along with him and Lemo tries to diffuse the situation, but Broly gets in the way and overpowers the soldier with such fury that Paragus has no choice but to use a device that sends an electric charge through Broly's body - which eventually causes him to calm down. Cheelai then confronts Paragus and steals the device away from him and destroys it without him noticing. Lemo and Cheelai then head to another section of the ship where they sit and share their food and water with Broly and ultimately befriend him. They hear of Broly's story involving Ba and Lemo encourages Broly to do not do everything that his father asks of him.
After landing on Earth, Cheelai and Lemo watch as Broly battles both Vegeta and then Goku, becoming more enraged as the battle presses on, they voice their dismay and sympathy that a sweet person like Broly has been manipulated in such a way by his father who treats him as though he were some slave. Unable to watch any more and believing that Broly could be killed, Lemo and Cheelai gather the Dragon Balls and head outside. Cheelai has Shenron teleport Broly back to Vampa and the two then steal a spaceship and leave Earth. Cheelai apologises for getting Lemo into such a mess but he says it's the most fun he's had in a while and decides to join Cheelai and Broly on Vampa.
A few days later, Goku appears bearing capsules containing lodging and supplies - which Lemo is shown to be grateful to have received.
Main article: Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Lemo, Cheelai, and Broly are shown to have been brought to Beerus' Planet by Goku and Vegeta so Broly to get control of his power while the location also ensures the trio's protection from Frieza. Lemo, due to his duties in the Frieza Force including him been a cook among other odd jobs, is able to win Beerus over with his cooking skills to the point where Beerus fires Whis as cook. He is later seen watching the training match between Goku and Vegeta.

- This was apparently missed by the localization team as Lemo states to Cheelai he'd only seen Frieza on the monitors in the Funimation dub. In the original version, he says he'd on seen Frieza on stations which presumably also refers to Planet Vegeta as it was a planet under the Frieza Force's control thus could count as a station.
