This is a list of notable techniques used by Frieza which have appeared in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, Dragon Ball Super, and various video games spun off by the Dragon Ball series.


Physical Abilities

Thanks to being a mutant prodigy, Frieza has incredible natural abilities.


Frieza pummels Gohan

  • Superhuman Strength: Frieza possess the capability to match the likes of Goku in physical strength and easily shatter plateaus, break the ground with kicks and punches and cause shockwaves. After his four months of training he produce shockwaves that could shatter cliffs while punching at cloud level and make a shockwaves that caused the ground to break shatter and break apart, he was able to make a larger crater, and cause several massive shockwaves that broke the clouds.
  • Superhuman Durability: Even without ki, whilst cut in half and with half his face blasted off, Frieza was capable of surviving the destruction of a planet. After training he could withstand a massive Kamehameha and his own Death Ball exploding right next to him. He has been thrashed by characters much stronger than him and recovered quickly (God of Destruction Top and Jiren's full power) without much injuries.
  • Superhuman Speed: Despite this ability not quite like Instant Transmission, Frieza can move so fast that he appears as if he's teleporting, even to characters like Goku, Vegeta and even King Kai, who can track faster than light vehicles, and in one scene Frieza runs on water and creates several sonic booms. After training, he could easily more faster than Gohan as a Super Saiyan could track with his first form and keep up with Goku in his fourth form. He has kept up with Dyspo, who was lightspeed with his technique, in his final form without going all out and trace his movements easily. In his golden form he was able to easily exceed such speeds.

Natural Abilities

Frieza puts himself back together

Frieza tries to put himself back together

  • Survivability: Frieza has the ability to survive anywhere, in any condition without sustenance, even the most horrifying injuries, a trait which was passed onto Cell. This is shown when he manages to survive being blasted into Namek's core and then the planet exploding with him inside it, he still survives even with his lower body sliced off and half of his head blown off, while floating in the vacuum of space. His most impressive feat in this area being how he managed to stay alive and conscious even when sliced into small pieces by Future Trunks. Even when in pieces, Frieza was still able to attempt to put himself back together via telekinesis - though he fell apart very quickly.
    • Oxygen Independence: Frieza can breathe without atmospheric air, enabling him to survive in space, which is why he is not afraid to attack a planet with the Death Ball, Supernova, or Earth Breaker.
  • Bio Suit creation: Frieza's race possess the natural ability to grow natural armor that they can shed at any time. In his true form, Frieza always wears the Z Fighting Suit. It is implied that Frieza can control the color of his Bio Suit in his Ultimate Evolution as he claims he made it gold so it would be easy to understand how strong he had become to his enemies.
  • Superhuman senses: Frieza seems to have enhanced senses even without ki. He hears of Ultra-instinct from the stands, despite being in the arena during the Tournament of Power, something of which only Kefla (who enhanced senses are doubled from fusion), Pirina and Saonel (both Namekian thus have incredible hearing) seem to be able to accomplish without being close to the stands. He's also shown to possess enhanced sight during the Namek saga, as he witnessed Dende heal Piccolo despite being far away. He’s seen through Dyspo's movements whom even Vados could barely notice.
  • Regeneration – While minor injuries seem to be of minor nuisance to him, his ability to regenerate lost body parts is not as advanced as the two other major villains of the series. In the English dub only, Frieza makes a copy of the ability on his scouter for future use when Nail regenerates his arm during their battle. During his battle against the Z Fighters on Namek, Frieza's tail stump seems to cope with the bleeding after some time, and grows back to its regular stage when he transforms from his third to his final form. After gaining immortality in Supersonic Warriors, Frieza restores his body to how it was before being damaged by Super Saiyan Goku. Regeneration is also used by the Ghost Warrior Frieza through Destron Gas.
  • Pure Progress - Owing to his status as a mutant prodigy, Frieza is capable of growing in power at an alarming rate over a short period of time.

Mental Abilities

While not shown a whole lot, Frieza has a multitude of talents, like being a capable leader with a degree of cruel charisma and success in his manipulations. Combined with a newly developed tactical sense and expert hand-hand prowess has made him a deadly opponent for nearly any opponent.

  • Indomitable will: His most astounding ability, is his extreme willpower in the face of all adversity. Even when being dominated by a clearly superior opponent, he would continue fighting no matter the cost (rarely pleading for his life when on his knees). He was unwilling to change his ways and repent for his sins, even though he experienced living hell with the Angels of Hell and persevered through this eternal torture, demonstrating another example of his strong will. In the anime, he was brutally crushed by Top, yet got back up quickly and fought back all the while holding his ground, getting back up several times from painful beatings and fighting passionately in the face of adversity. He also was on the losing edge of a battle with Broly for around an hour and despite being beaten was still his usual self in the face of Gogeta. This trait is somewhat deconstructed, as he refused to cut his losses to admit defeat and leave, which resulted in him being injured to the point that he had to be turned into a cyborg.
  • Tactical Analysis: Something he has developed in his resurrection, is the ability to analyze opponents and events (although not on the same level as Piccolo or Android 17). In the anime, during his battle with Universe 9's Assassins, he took advantage of a Energy of Destruction ball and threw it at Goku to keep him contained. During that short time period, he propositioned his services to Universe 9 in order to avoid possible erasure. After that he noted that the tournament is making the gods themselves nervous and planned to use that to his advantage. During the tournament, he quickly deduced the basics of Instant Transmission and countered it easily. Tricked Frost into going into his 100% Full Power form and knocked him out of the arena. Upon seeing Jiren's power, he pragmatically gave power to Goku in the desire to avoid such an opponent at all costs (which is remarkable as before he would never consider such an opponent as a threat in the past). Easily analyzed Dyspo's Light Bullet movements and understood it's linear nature. Acknowledged Gohan strategy to knock out Dyspo and eliminated two birds with one stone by eliminating them both. After being knocked down by Top, he took advantage of him being off-guard and trapped him in paralysis, all the while using manipulated Kachi Katchin to crush him (as it is the strongest metal in the mutliverse, it could have hurt the former if not for the destruction shield). In the manga, he lured Top and Dyspo to the rubble surrounding the ring so he could force them both to fall, strategized how best to hold off Jiren so as to have the timer run out, and came up with a plan with Android 17 that resulted in Universe 7's victory.
  • Leadership: this is a imbalanced trait as his volatile nature makes him difficult to live under or get along with, although he can be quite charismatic to those he treats well, shown through how the Ginyu Force members all admire and obey his orders very zealously. Yet he has eliminated his loyal followers without hesitation and is very hard on them for even the smallest of things. He allows imbalance in his forces in order to weed out the weak, and shows mercy to those who loses in such events (something that even Beerus commends him for). In the manga, he is threatening to his followers yet tolerant of their actions and less likely to kill them for such things. In the anime however, he is very pitiless towards his minions and kills over minor things. His leadership quality after his resurrection, has declined from the sheer mental instability he developed from his losses. Insulting, threatening and killing anyone who even so as much questions his desires, brutally torturing his training partners in order to grow stronger. Finally, slaughtering his whole army just to power up has minimized this trait considerably.
  • Divination – Seemingly thanks to his psychic abilities, Frieza possess a small amount of premonition powers, as on Namek he can feel that a Saiyan is developing in power somewhere, despite being unable to sense ki, and so sends for the Ginyu Force.[1]

Energy Abilities

  • Flight – The ability of flight through the manipulation of ki.
  • Ki Sense – At the time of the Battle on Namek, like the rest of his minions, who use scouters as a compromise, Frieza seems to be unable to sense the ki of other people. However, he is able to have a glimpse of a "powerful Saiyan developing and heading to Namek" before the person in question (Goku) actually appeared in front of him. Also, given enough time, Frieza can lock his senses and his mind onto his opponent to read his/her position at any given moment; he demonstrates this when he begins fighting Goku with 50% of his power. Frieza was able to sense Jiren's energy during the Tournament of Power. In Shin Budokai, Frieza gains the ability to sense ki and suppress his own ki, and he also displays the ability in Dragon Ball GT.
  • Ki Transfer - The ability to transfer a portion of one's ki to someone else, used in the Universal Survival Saga when Frieza did this to Goku, in a twist of fate seeing as Goku did this towards Frieza on Namek.
