Evil and powerful, the Ginyu Force is hailed as the most powerful team in the universe. It is composed of five members, each one very powerful and possessing unique attacks and fighting advantages. When Dodoria and Zarbon are unable to eliminate our friends and collect the seven Namekian Dragon Balls, Frieza summons the Ginyu Force. Between battles, they enjoy such goofy past times as watching soap operas, playing “paper, rock, scissors” to decide who will fight who, and making bets over chocolate nut bars, their favorite food.
The Ginyu Force strikes various poses during their battles. While individually and collectively they are very strong, each member is conceited and competitive which leads to their downfall. They hesitate to ask each other for help because they don’t want to share the credit for the victory. The members of the Ginyu Force don’t seem to care about each other, willing to stand back and watch while their teammates are destroyed.
Captain Ginyu, with purple skin and black horns, is the strongest of the team, and its leader. He has the powerful ability to switch bodies with his opponents. He switches bodies with Goku giving Captain Ginyu the advantage of fighting with Goku’s powerful body and also of confusing the team of good guys. This capability does lead to his ultimate demise as he accidentally and forever changes bodies with a frog.
