The content below is entirely editable.

The intergalactic tyrant who destroyed Planet Vegeta along with almost the entire Saiyan race.

Origin

Along with his father King Cold, Frieza was part of galactic organization that involves conquering planets, and selling them for profits, whether the inhabitants liked it or not. However Frieza didn't conquer those planets by using his army he had created from his previously conquered planets, he did it with his own power. One of the planets he conquered was Planet Vegeta, the home of the Saiyan race where he used most of them as his personal army for long time. However when he realized the hidden potential of Saiyan race and heard the legend of the Super Saiyan, Frieza destroyed the planet and wiped out the most of Sayian race out of fear that they would get strong enough to defeat him.

Creation

Frieza was an original villain character created by Akira Toriyama, as such he has appeared in both the manga and anime version of the Dragon Ball franchise. According to him, Frieza's design is an amalgamation of what he thought monsters looked like in his childhood.

Evolution

Appearance

Frieza has about 4 forms. Frieza in his first form is very short. He has horns sticking our of his head. His second transformation is similar in appearance to his first, but much more bigger and taller. His third form is smaller, but Frieza's head has gotten longer. Frieza in his final form has a much more simpler design.

Personality

Frieza is of course very evil, and just like any evil person Frieza is ruthless. While on Namek Frieza is slaughtering the Namekians after getting their Dragon Balls. Frieza is very sadistic, he was laughing when destroying Planet Vegeta, and killing many Saiyan's in the process. Despite being a villain, Frieza is not one to bluff. When saying something, Frieza usually backs it up. For example, when Frieza said that using 50% of his power was enough to destroy Goku, he wasn't bluffing. He really was too much for Goku to handle. Despite Frieza being so powerful, he is very paranoid. That's why he decided to destroy Planet Vegeta, so that none of the Saiyans could ever surpass him. Frieza is sometimes polite, and patient.

Major Story Arc

Frieza Saga

Frieza is first seen on Planet Namek. He had heard about the Dragon Balls from Vegeta's scouter, and became intrigued about the idea of wishing for immortality. His first appearance was in a Namekian village. Frieza along with his top two henchman (Zarbon and Dodoria), and other soldiers are seen threatening the Namekians unless they hand over a Dragon Ball. Frieza manages to gather 5 Dragon balls, but they are then stolen by Vegeta. Frieza then resorts to calling in the Ginyu Force to assist him in getting back the Dragon Balls. The Ginyu Force succeed in stealing all 7 Dragon Balls from Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan.

Frieza with all 7 Dragon Balls is unable to summon Porunga (the namekian dragon). He then goes in search of any surviving Namekian (most were killed by Frieza and Vegeta). Frieza is able to find the Grand Elder Guru. Grand Elder Guru of course does not tell Frieza the password to summoning Porunga, and sends his bodyguard Nail to buy time so that Krillin, and Gohan could make their wish. Frieza is able to easily beat up Nail, he even rips his arm off. Nail who is now beaten to death, tells Frieza that Dende left to go to the earthlings to tell them the password to summon Porunga. An upset Frieza quickly leaves in an attempt to get his wish, but is too late when he arrives and finds out that the Grand Elder Guru has died, and that the Dragon Balls have turned to stone.

Frieza is enraged that he couldn't get his wish. Frieza now having nothing to lose, decides to punish Vegeta, Gohan, Krillin, and Dende. Frieza seeing that the Vegeta, and the earthlings are quite strong, decides to transform. Frieza's transformation is overwhelming to the group, until Piccolo arrives. Piccolo is able to keep up until Frieza decides to transform again. Frieza is quite powerful in his third form, but decides to transform into his final form. Frieza is his final form was just too powerful. He proceeds to kill Dende with almost no effort. He is able to deflect Vegeta's best attack, and then proceeds to pummel Vegeta.

Goku then arrives to help. Frieza kills Vegeta who was talking about the legendary "Super Saiyan." At first Goku is able to put up a decent fight with Frieza, but then Frieza decides to use 50% of his power. Frieza at 50% proves to be too much for Goku, who at 20X kaioken is only able to scratch Frieza with a kamehameha. Frieza is quite upset because that kamehameha hurt him. He takes his anger out on Goku by beating him up hard. Goku is left with no choice but to use the spirit bomb. After enough energy is gathered, Goku unleashes the spirit bomb upon Frieza. At first it appeared that Frieza was killed, but he suddenly reappears and uses the death beam on piccolo nearly killing him. Frieza then uses his telekinesis and makes Krillin explode. This causes Goku to rage and turn into the legendary Super Saiyan.

Goku as a Super Saiyan is clearly to much for Frieza to handle. Frieza out of desperation decides to destroy Planet Namek in order to kill Goku. Frieza however held back his power out of fear of getting caught in the explosion. Frieza states that the planet will explode in 5 minutes. Frieza then decides to use all 100% of his power, but is still slightly inferior to Goku. Goku seeing that it is pointless to keep on fighting decides to leave. Frieza however will not allow him to do so, and unleashes a move similar to the destructo disk upon Goku. Frieza is able to manipulate this move and tries to use it to kill Goku. Unfortunately for Frieza, he ends up slicing himself in half.

Just as Goku is about to leave, Frieza makes a plea to Goku to save him. Goku out of pity gives Frieza some energy to get off the exploding planet. Frieza however, decides to use that energy as a last ditch effort to kill Goku. Goku angrily deflects that blast right back at Frieza, and appears to have finished him off.

Android Saga

Frieza makes his next appearance in the beginning of the Android Saga. Frieza had been found on Namek in a bad state. His father King Cold took Frieza and repaired his body. Frieza is now much more powerful then before. He and his father decide to go to earth for revenge. Frieza arrives on earth and orders his soldiers to kill all life. However, a mysterious boy named Trunks appears and kills all the soldiers. Frieza is stunned to find out this boy can also turn into a Super Saiyan. Frieza attempts to kill Trunks, but fails doing so. Trunks attacks Frieza, slicing him up into several pieces, and burring those pieces with a ki blast.

Powers and Abilities

Frieza's Transformations

First Form
Frieza's first form
Frieza's first form
Frieza's first form is the form that Frieza is seen using when on Namek to search for the Dragon Balls and wish for immortality. He sent his men out to get all the Dragon Balls but since none of his minions were able to complete the mission, Frieza had to go scout for them himself. He later runs into Gohan, Krillin and Vegeta and ends up fighting against them. Frieza was doing fine until Vegeta finally joined the fight, when Frieza was cornered by Vegeta he had no choice but to transform into his second form. This is also the form Frieza was in when he destroyed the planet Vegeta.
Second Form

Frieza's second form, Frieza decided to use this form when he was being defeated Vegeta in his first form. When Vegeta was defeated, Frieza decides to have little fun by stabbing Krillin with the horns on his head. Enraged, Gohan attacks Frieza but it was no use against him. Piccolo, who got stronger after bonding/fusing with Nail, shows up just in right time to save both Krillin and Gohan. Frieza and Piccolo fight against each other with almost equal strength for a decent amount of time. Eventually Frieza decides to transform into his next form.
Third Form

This form was based off of Alien from the alien franchise. When Frieza transformed into his third form his speed was increase tremendously which Piccolo couldn't keep up with. Frieza defeats Piccolo with his third form, but he decides to transform into his final form to have pleasure of torturing them.
Final Form
Frieza's final form
Frieza's final form
Frieza's final and also his original form. It was revealed later that other three forms were used to suppress his original power in order to keep his under control. When he battled Vegeta in this form he was able to easily defeated him to the point where he had his tail around Vegeta's neck and was punching him in the back. Vegata would have died but Goku came to the rescue. Frieza disposed of Vegeta with a death beam through the heart. Then he battles Goku with no distractions. They were equals in power during the fight until Frieza stopped using 1% of his power and use 50% of his power. Frieza was overwhelming Goku, who was going far as using Kaio-ken x 20, which left him no choice but to use a Spirit Bomb. Frieza appeared to be killed by the Spirit Bomb but it was revealed that he evaded it. In retaliation, Frieza shot Piccolo with a death beam and then blew Krillin up. This enraged Goku triggered his transformation into a Super Saiyan, the being Frieza feared the most. They begin to fight again, but this time with Goku having the upper hand.
100% Power Form

Frieza at 100% full power
When Frieza was losing his fight against Goku in Super Saiyan mode, Frieza decided to use 100% of his power to increase his strength and speed. The problem was that it was too powerful for Frieza to handle, it was actually putting strains on his body and his body couldn't maintain it for long. Eventually he loses strength and gets weaker and weaker.


Mecha Frieza
Mecha Frieza
Mecha Frieza

Frieza is put back together with metal parts, and is said to be at his strongest ever in this form due to new inorganic part, not limiting his full potential. He goes to Goku's planet so he can fight him again. However no matter how powerful his was, Frieza was still no match against Trunks in his Super Saiyan mode.

Durability

Frieza has shown the ability to withstand the blast from a Spirit Bomb that had energy from the planet Namek as well as nearby planets and stars and continue fighting. Frieza has been shown to take blows and ki attacks from Super Saiyan Goku. Frieza also survived the destruction of planet Namek while already half dead from his battle with Goku (Frieza was sliced in half and had been dealt a heavy blast from Goku).

Power

Frieza easily possesses planet destroying power as he destroyed the planet Vegeta with a ki ball while still in his first form. In his final form he easily had the ability to destroy the planet Namek, however he hesitated and only hit the core, postponing its destruction for a small amount of time. Frieza and his father King Cold state that it would be a simple matter to destroy the Earth with one shot while still in orbit.

Speed

Frieza has shown exceptional speed in combat during his fights with Piccolo and Goku. Frieza routinely dodges ki from even extremely close distances, indicating faster than light reactions as various ki beams in the Dragon Ball franchise have been clocked at or surpassing the speed of light. Frieza's flight speed is never stated in the manga, so it is up for debate on how fast Frieza really is.

Special Abilities

Ki Blast - Basic energy blast.

Flight - Frieza is capable of flying.

Laser Vison - Allows Frieza to fire lasers from his eyes.

Death Ball - Frieza uses this move to destroy Planet Vegeta. Frieza gathers energy into his index finger creating a huge energy ball, and then fires it onto his opponent.

Telekinesis - Frieza has shown the ability to lift heavy objects with the use of telekinesis. In the anime he is seen hurling an island at Goku using his telekinesis.

Kiai - He also uses invisible ki abilities to blow up Krillin form the inside. Frieza also possesses hand to hand fighting skills, allowing him to fight on par with Goku. Frieza can also breath and survive indefinitely in space.

Paralyzing Light Ball - Frieza can paralyze his opponents using an exploding ball of light, like he did against Goku.

Death Beam - One of Frieza's most deadliest attacks is the Death Beam. Frieza used this death beam to kill Dende, Vegeta, and nearly killed Piccolo with it. The Death Beam is so fast that the beam was able to pass several characters without anyone noticing until the beam had struck, and killed Dende.

Death Saucer - The Death Saucer is very similar to the Destructo Disk, but Frieza is able to control the movement of the Death Saucer. This is arguably Frieza's most deadliest ability, because it was stated by Frieza that this move can cut through anything.

Power Level:

In original form, Frieza is already considered the most powerful of all the universe. Frieza has a power level of 530,000 units, and this value was well above the power level of the Captain Ginyu (120,000 on top form). Frieza is powerful enough to destroy a planet with the Death Ball (as he did with the Planet Vegeta, the fight against the father of Goku - Frieza destroys a planet whose gravity is 10 times above the Earth's gravity). In his second form, he has a power level exceeding 1 million. Frieza's power was elevated to levels so high that the combined efforts of Krilin, Vegeta and Gohan did not do any physical harm to Frieza. But his great power was overcome by the power of Piccolo after his fusion with the dying Nail. In his third form, Frieza has an even more monstrous power level, but as much as in the manga and Daizenshuu book 7 - his power level was never revealed. In his fight against Goku's power, the power level of the tyrant was 60,000,000 using only half of his total force. In his final form and the use of 100% of his strength, the power level of Frieza was 120,000,000. However, the use of 100% of his maximum power, Frieza has to wait a bit and he still cannot fight for a long time in his final form at 100% which results in a decrease of Ki and gradual loss of his physical capabilities. But in the anime, Frieza in his final form fought on equal footing with Super Saiyan Goku.
