This article is about Frieza's soldiers. For an artificial lifeform from Universe 6, see Oren.

Orlen (オーレン Ōren) is one of Frieza's soldiers on Namek who only appears in the anime.


He is the same race as Appule, except he is yellow with large fangs, no spots on his body, and red eyes.


Orlen appears to be very ruthless, as he interrogates and kills a dying Namekian without showing any sympathy or remorse and despite having little to nothing to gain from killing him. He also appears to be very foolish and short sighted, as he kills the Namekian before asking where Vegeta may have hidden the Dragon Ball and later admits to this to Frieza, which gets him killed.


Dragon Ball Z

Frieza Saga

Main article: Namek Saga This soldier is the one who finds the Namekian village that Vegeta had attacked for its Dragon Ball. He interrogates the only survivor, and learns that it was Vegeta's doing. He then kills the Namekian and returns to Frieza's ship to report.

He lets it slip that he killed the survivor without first asking where Vegeta may have hidden the Dragon Ball, angering Frieza, who then kills Orlen without a second thought, zapping him with Eye Lasers as Zarbon watched (in the Ocean dub, Frieza killed him for cowardice instead, as he did not want to stay where Vegeta might be), which also was intended to be a demonstration to Zarbon as to what would happen if he failed to locate Vegeta.

Other Dragon Ball stories


Main article: Dragon Ball Legends During the Tournament of Time, Orlen acted as a henchman of Turles.


Video games

In Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu, his power level is 4,600 or 5,600 (depending on the encounter).[2]

Orlen in Xenoverse

This yellow soldier appears as a recurring foe under the name Orlen (オーレン Ōren) (renamed "Bugy" or "Shuku" in English versions) in Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu.

Orlen is also a playable character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse, alongside Appule, Nabana, Robery, and Ramon. As his character model is simply a recolor of Appule's model, his red eyes have pupils.

Orlen makes another appearance in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. He retains the same design he had from Xenoverse as his red eyes have pupils.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Frieza Force Scouts resemble Orlen though they have yellow skin and red spots. Additionally, they have normal eyes with pupils.

Orlen name

Orlen's name revealed in Ocean dub subtitles

  • Orlen's name likely comes from the fruit, the orange, thus he shares his name origin with Oren.
  • In the manga, it is Appule who discovers the village Vegeta destroyed, and upon returning to report, Frieza does not kill him but orders him to summon The Ginyu Force.
  • In the edited airings of Dragon Ball Z Kai, Frieza does not kill Orlen; he merely calls for Appule and before Appule comes in, Orlen is gone and is not shown again at all from that point on the series.
  • While his name was never directly stated by anyone in the show and it was first seen in the subtitles of the Ocean dub version of the series and later in the credits in Funimation's Dragon Box.
  • In Xenoverse 2, it is established that Orlen's primary role is intelligence gathering, a talent that he claims to have picked up from his father, who was a reporter.
  • It is possible that he was revived by Popo's wish as seen in "Moro's Wish (volume)" with the likes of Cranberry.
