Freeza's Force (faction)

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

This article (Freeza's Force (faction)), or a section of this article, is very messy. Please edit this article so that it looks more polished.

Freeza's Force (フリーザ 軍, Furiiza Gun) is an organization apparently run by Cold and his two sons, Freeza and Cooler (Cooler only if the films are counted as canon). Freeza's Force employs and enslaves powerful races, such as the Saiyans, to take over suitable planets so that they can be sold to the highest bidders. According to the Dragon Ball: Daizenshū, Cold is not known by the organization as its leader for unknown reasons.[1] It could be said that Freeza is the official leader. Kuririn refers to the organization's members as belonging to the "planet trade".


It is never stated when this organization began or any detail of its origins, all that is known is that it is apparently led by Cold and his sons. Many formidable races are forced into the organization with the threat of their own planets destruction if they do not comply. With their great power, King Cold and his sons apparently held a giant iron fist over the galaxy, controlling almost all planets under one giant dictatorship, and use fear and power to get races to comply. Freeza alone is shown to be in control of at least 79 planets, and Cooler in control of at least 256 planets with no mention of how many Cold owns. They are also shown destroying planets that they believe are not suitable for sale (Cooler states in his debut that he has several planets to destroy by the end of the day). No other leaders of this organization are ever shown, if any for that matter. The organization seemed to have officially ended with the deaths of Cold and Freeza by Future Trunks in 764 Age, and Cooler's death by the hands of Son Goku and Vegeta a short time later, thus bringing peace to the galaxy.

Failure on Planet Namek

Freeza had brought his forces to Planet Namek in December 762 Age in order to use the Dragon Balls to wish for immortality. However, the Z Warriors coincidentally came to Namek at the same time in order to wish their fallen comrades back to life after they were killed in the battle against the Saiyans on Earth. Vegeta also travels to Namek to use the Dragon Balls with the same intention as Freeza, immortality. In the ensuing battle, all of Freeza's Force were killed, and is left alone to battle against Goku, who had become a Super Saiyan after Freeza had murdered Kuririn. In a last ditch effort, Freeza tries to blow up Planet Namek by destroying the core, and after a continuing fight, Freeza is cut in two by his own attack, and Goku leaves him for dead. Planet Namek explodes minutes later, but Freeza survives.

Attack on Planet Earth

Freeza is found near dead in space by his father, floating amongst the debris of the fallen Planet Namek. He is taken on board the ship and Cold's scientists successfully repair Frieza by adding cybernetic attachment to the slain tyrant. Upon awakening, Frieza orders a course for Earth to receive vengeance on Goku, but continues to be haunted by the stern eyes of the Super Saiyan, fueling his rage. Roughly a year following his defeat, Frieza and his father arrive on Earth, only to be greeted by the time traveling Future Trunks who, much to the enjoyment of Freeza, states that he will kill them. Trunks proceeds to transform into a Super Saiyan, slices Freeza into bits with his sword, blasts Cold through the chest, and blows up Frieza's ship with relative ease. This is evidently the end of Freeza's Force, with the deaths of its leaders. It is unknown what happens to the thousands, if not millions, of races enslaved or involved.

End of the organization


After Porunga tells everyone that Goku is still alive and will return to the earth by his own means, Vegeta uses the spaceship constructed by Bulma's father and leaves for outer space in search of Goku. On his way, he finds the last remaining soldiers of Freeza and kills them.

After his failure and horrible defeat on Planet Namek at the hands of Goku, Frieza drifted throughout space unconscious and near death. Fortunately for Frieza, his father King Cold learned of his defeat and searched through space hoping to find his son still alive. When Freeza was found, he was pieced back together using mechanical parts. Frieza then only had one thing on his mind... revenge. A short time later, Frieza and King Cold arrived on Earth, aiming to kill Goku and destroy the planet. However, this would be interrupted by the time traveling son of Vegeta, Future Trunks. Almost effortlessly, Trunks killed Frieza and his father, King Cold, thus putting an end to their terrible reign over the universe, but not before destroying their spaceship and killing all their soldiers. Goku then returned to earth, was given the information about future events, and peace was restored.

Some time later, Cooler, who apparently had just heard about his brother's death (he apparently had no knowledge of his father's death as well), came to earth looking for revenge. However, he proved to be no match for Goku's Super Saiyan power, and just like his father and brother, was defeated. He managed to survive and he too was saved by the use of mechanical parts, only he was saved by the Big Gete Star, which turned him completely metallic. After attempting to destroy New Planet Namek and use it for fuel, Goku and the Z Warriors arrived to stop the threat. Once again it was Goku and Vegeta who defeated and this time finally killed Cooler.

Years later during the special, Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, the twin brother duo of Abo and Cado, old henchmen of Freeza, arrived on Earth and fought Trunks and Son Goten. After fusing into Aka, Goku eventually stepped in and defeated the duo. After their defeat the two reformed and joined the good guys at Mr. Satan's hotel banquet before leaving earth to earn a fresh start. Thus, officially ending the Planet Trade Organization as we know it.

Prior to the events of the computer game Dragon Ball Online, in Age 820, remnants of the planet trade organization attacked Earth. The Kikoukenjutsu Sword School, a martial arts school created by Trunks and Goten, aided in the struggle against the remains of Frieza's army.

Armor and technology

The organization uses many different types of technologies. These include Scouters, which are devices that are used mostly for calculating the individual battle power or ki concentration of biological creatures. They use humanoid plant creatures called Saibamen to test an opponent's fighting skill. Known weapons are the blasters and arm cannons. The Attack Balls that were used as the Saiyans primary means of interplanetary travel were given to them by the Arcosians, apparent members of the Planet Trade Organization. Many other advanced space ships are seen in use as well. Warrior members such as the Saiyans are also seen wearing different types of armor and this armor is used as something of a uniform by other members as well.

Races enslaved and involved

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of races enslaved, most notably the Saiyans. These races are employed in different ways depending on their strength. Groups like the Saiyans, who are shown to have great fighting abilities, are given many freedoms for showing their worth by conquering and destroying planets. All three leaders are also shown to have their select armies, workers, and technicians. Many powerful and high ranking members such as Zarbon and Dodoria, who accompany Frieza at all times, are also known to be loyal followers, whom are shown mercy and named right-hand men in return. They, like many others, are shown to enjoy their work of pillaging and murdering with no remorse. Many other members of some races are hired for combat, such as the Ginyu Force, Cooler's Armored Squadron, and the brother duo of Abo and Kado. The leaders are also shown creating super elite groups to do dirty work, such as the group of warriors that killed Bardock's team or men like the ones in Cooler's Armored Squadron.

Known races allied or enslaved

Known conflicts

Known members



  • Freeza is known to own at least 79 planets.
  • According to Shonen Jump, Cooler is known to own at least 256 planets.
  • This group should not be confused with the real world World Trade Organization that exists due to a treaty by the nations of the real world. Whereas the real WTO exists to regulate trade, the entity in Dragon Ball Z is more of an interplanetary pirate organization, conquering planets and selling them to the highest bidder.
  • In the FUNimation dub, the Ginyu Force mentions a bowling tournament that they participate in. Recoome and Jheese also mention that they receive dentistry and paid vacations.
