Team Dodoria[3] is an elite platoon who works under Dodoria, one of Frieza's most esteemed underlings. They make their debut in the special Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku.

Overview

Dodoria with his elites

Despite being an elite platoon within the Frieza Force, three of the four members of the squad (excluding their leader, Dodoria) are nameless characters. Their captain is credited on various film websites as the "Horned Gang Leader". The most prominent elite aside from the leader is a member of Appule's race who has amethyst-colored skin with gold specs. Another member is a green fish-like humanoid who appears to be of the same race as the brown-skinned Frieza Soldier and the grunts in Slug's army. The other member is a frog-like creature with a red head-crest.

Bardock - The Father of Goku

Dodoria's Elite on Planet Meat just before attacking Bardock

These four accompany Dodoria to Planet Meat where, under Frieza's orders, they execute Bardock's squad (with the exception of Bardock, who during this time is resting in a Saiyan infirmary). When Bardock discovers his ravaged comrades he is assaulted by Dodoria's Elite, but manages to dominate the elite-class fighters. The Appule-like soldier fires several energy waves at Bardock, only to have his skull caved in. The fish-like humanoid soldier has his neck broken by Bardock and is used as a shield to defend from an oncoming Energy Wave from the captain. While Bardock is briefly distracted by his foresight, the captain knee strikes Bardock in the guts. The frog-like soldier takes hold of Bardock with a Full-Nelson while the captain rapidly punches the Saiyan. When Bardock recovers, he spins the frog-like soldier around and the captain accidentally punches a hole through his back. Bardock then launches a Full Power Energy Wave at the elites, killing both. However, soon after, Dodoria arrives to overpower Bardock, leaving him for dead.

Video game appearances

During the Frieza's Spaceship side missions in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the Future Warrior can choose to join either Team Dodoria or Team Zarbon.

DRK Team Dodoria confronts Team Bardock during the Tournament of Time in Dragon Ball Legends

In Dragon Ball Legends, there are at least two incarnations of Team Dodoria participating in the Tournament of Time due to the number of Dodoria incarnations participating in the tournament. One of them working for the Organization of Babidi consists of Dodoria, Nabana, and Orlen all of whom are empowered with Dark Ki 1st Stage. This DRK Team Dodoria confronts Team Beerus' allies Bardock, Fasha, & Tora of Team Bardock, though unlike the original Team Dodoria's attack on Team Bardock, the three Saiyans manage to survive to come to Shallot's aid later on. Another incarnation ironically consists of pre-Bardock - The Father of Goku Borgos and Shugesh who swallow their pride, working under another incarnation of Dodoria. This Dodoria sends the two Saiyans out to hunt for food, though unfortunately Shallot ends up getting in a fight with them over the meat and Shallot who has achieved Super Saiyan God by this point easily overpowers them causing them to retreat back to Dodoria. Shallot ends up confronting Dodoria whom he easily defeats, having fought several incarnations of Dodoria over the course of the tournament. With this latest incarnation of Team Dodoria now defunct, Shallot admonishes the Borgos and Shugesh for their lack of Saiyan pride and though they flee when members of Mastermind's group show up, Borgos convinces Shugesh to return and fight, leading them to aid Shallot in his battle against Dark Ki 3rd Stage Kid Buu.

Trivia

  • The soldiers who fought Bardock when he tried to attack Frieza look very similar to the members of Dodoria's Elite, notably one of the last two soldiers holding Bardock in a headlock.
