"Perhaps I should have explained earlier? My body is constantly monitored by the Big Gete Star's main computer. Any injury I might suffer is instantly detected and repaired - and whatever flaws in my design that allowed the injury are corrected. It's quite remarkable, really. In simple terms, of course, this means you can't win."
Meta-Cooler in Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler

Rebirth (自動修復能力 Jidō Shūfuku Nōryoku, lit. "Auto-Repair Ability")[1][4] is an ability utilized by Meta-Coolers in Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler.


Once Meta-Cooler has been damaged, the Big Gete Star analyzes and repairs the Meta-Cooler unit, regenerating any lost body parts and upgrading them so that their armor will be more durable in order to avoid the same injury twice. However, the Rebirth ability cannot repair a Meta-Cooler that has broken into pieces. Additionally, this ability has limits, as the combined onslaught of two Super Saiyans proved to be too much for Rebirth's armor-enhancing abilities to counter, and so it instead opted to create more Meta-Coolers to compensate. Even then, the full power of the two Super Saiyans proved to be too much for the Big Gete Star to handle, resulting in the destruction of the Meta-Cooler Corps, as each one exploded from the sheer amount of energy.


Majin Ozotto used this ability in Meta-Cooler's form against Ultra Instinct Sign Goku and Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (Berserk Controlled) Vegeta after they tear his arms off. However, Goku and Vegeta grab the exposed wires underneath and overheat them until they reach a point that Meta-Cooler explodes.[3]

Film Appearances[]

In Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler, Meta-Cooler used this ability to regenerate his left arm after Super Saiyan Goku punches it off. He uses it again after Super Saiyan Goku and Vegeta's Death-Defying Combination shatters him into three pieces. However, they continue to attack Meta-Cooler with a barrage of energy waves to prevent his regeneration, destroying him in the process.
