Appule's race is an alien race belonging to the Galactic Frieza Army. They are octopus-like humanoids with different skin colors (purple, orange, yellow or green), and white or red eyes. Some members of the race have golden, red, dark, or purple spots on the arms, head and legs. Some have also been seen to have large fangs or horns.
A member of Appule's race works on the control tower on Planet Frieza 79. Several members of the race were among the soldiers Frieza took with him on Namek, the most notable being the mid-ranking soldier Appule. Another named member who was on Namek with Frieza is Orlen, who appears only in the anime and in video games. A green member of the race, who appears only in the anime, shows Frieza several planets that he could sell at higher price than Namek on the screen inside Frieza's spaceship when Frieza is waiting for the Ginyu Force to defeat the Z Fighters. A member of the race with red eyes, yellow spots, and very light purple skin is outside the ship while Captain Ginyu is holding auditions, and he later buries the Namekian Dragon Balls with the other soldiers.
In the anime-only Garlic Jr. Saga, Vegeta visits a planet where he easily defeats an army of Appule's race members while searching for Goku in outer space. Other members of the race are among King Cold's soldiers who repairs Frieza and on Earth. A green member of the race is one of Paragus' soldiers; he is briefly seen on New Planet Vegeta.
Members of the race appear as part of Frieza's army of one thousand soldiers during his invasion of Earth in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.
