"Master Frieza! Do you really think something as strong as the Ginyu Force is required? I mean, we'll dispatch them if you want, yes sir! You just give the word!"
— Namole to Frieza in "Unknown Enemies"

Namole is a mid-level soldier in the Frieza Force who only appears in the anime.


He looks like a Human-type Earthling wearing the Frieza soldier armor.


Namole is shown to be incredibly afraid of Frieza, shaking by just being the presence of the tyrant. Such a fearful personality was his downfall, with Frieza pointing out this "flaw" and killing him because of it.

Namole and crew

Namole and his bouncers

On Namek, after Vegeta murders Zarbon, Namole timidly delivers the news that the Ginyu Force were arriving soon. Frieza kills him for showing fear in his presence.[1] In the Ocean Group dubs, the dialogue is different: Namole asks Frieza if the Ginyu Force is really required. Frieza asks Namole if he was trying to second guess one of his decisions. Namole timidly shakes his head, but Frieza destroys him completely anyway, then comments "Too bad. Guess you're just blasted to another dimension for no reason at all".


Namole killed by Frieza

In the Funimation dub, the scene is more sinister as Frieza simply kills Namole due to the fact that the Ginyu Force was coming. An odd change considering that the other soldiers present were of no use either, and yet were not killed. Namole's bouncers are later killed when Vegeta arrives at Frieza's Spaceship and deflects all of their lasers and energy blasts back at them.

As he was killed by Frieza, Namole was presumably resurrected by the wish to bring back all those killed by Frieza and his men.

  • His name is a pun on the food "Guacamole".
  • Due to the fact Frieza knew his name and that he was accompanied by two bouncers, Namole may be a Mid-Class Soldier like Appule.
  • Namole is shown in Dragon Ball Z Kai being fearful of Frieza while he's complaining about Zarbon but is not depicted being killed. It's possible that he was killed later when Vegeta returned to Frieza's Ship and slaughtered all the remaining soldiers. It would rectify the continuity error caused in the original anime where Namole was not resurrected after Mr. Popo wished for Shenron to bring back all the people on Namek who were killed by Frieza and his men (Vegeta was no longer a part of the Frieza Force upon his defection upon leaving Planet Frieza 79).
