Napple (ナップル) is a soldier in the Planet Trade Organization. He is a large humanoid with horns and a mohawk. He first appeared in "Namek's Defense", and was named in the RPG game Dragon Ball Z II: Gekishin Freeza. His name is a pun on the fruit "Pineapple".
Napple was among the soldiers Frieza took with him on Namek. In Moori's village, he taunts the three Warrior-type Namekians by saying they would be better off fighting old grannies. Napple then leads the charge of Frieza's men at the Namekians, only to be kicked in the face by one of the Namekian Warriors, sending him flying past where Frieza, Zarbon and Dodoria are. He crashes through a tree and becomes embedded in a cliff. He soons gets back up and attacks another of the Namekian warriors with a heavy punch but the Namek blocks it and powerfully throws Napple into the ground, causing him to smash into it and presumably killing him.
Napple is presumably the strongest of Frieza's Namek village raiding group (other than Appule, Dodoria, Zarbon, and Frieza himself), however he is defeated by the Namekian Warriors who each have power levels of around 3,000.
Napple's power level is 5,800 in Gekishin Freeza (which is much higher than the Namekians who defeated him), and 1,825 in Goku Gekitōden.
