Haughty, malicious, seemingly invincible and power-hungry with absolutely no compassion, Frieza is feared as the most powerful and evil being in the universe with no rival being even close to his strength. Upon learning about the legendary Namekian Dragon Balls, Frieza is consumed with a desire to obtain the Dragon Balls, summon the Dragon, and gain his wish for immortality. Then he can rule the entire universe, unrivaled, forever. Understanding the capability of the Saiyans as fighters, he eliminates their planet to destroy the competition. In his search for the Dragon Balls on Namek, he ruthlessly and predictably eliminates all who get in his way. The very mention of his name strikes dread and fear across the universe.
Zarbon and Dodoria are Frieza’s two evil right hand men. They carry out his requests promptly and without question, knowing Frieza’s character too well. Frieza also employs the legendary Ginyu Force to take care of his business.
Frieza is a lizard-like creature who can shape-shift into four stages of forms, with each form more powerful than the last. In his first form, Frieza is in a space pod. In the second form, Frieza has two horns on his head and his body is larger. In the third form, Frieza is in his biggest body and his back is bent. The fourth form is the perfect form; he is in a small body with no angle on his body. He has a fifth appearance. After being beaten by Goku, Frieza is rebuilt with robotic parts, and once again poses a threat to our heroes.
