Arcosians are a race presumably belonging to the Frieza Force. They were named only in the original FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z.



Arcosians meet the Saiyans

Their appearance has them wearing white cloaks and what resembles gas masks, as well as apparently being green.

They are most notably responsible for supplying the Saiyans with Battle Armors and other technology. In return for this technology, the Saiyans would conquer planets for the Arcosians.

Relation with Frieza's race

The Arcosians are never seen nor mentioned again after the flashback they appear in (in the episode "Goku's Ancestors"), but it has been suggested that they actually are Frieza's race.


The Guardian of Planet Vegeta destroying the planet

This would be fitting given their relationship with the early Saiyans, as well as their small humanoid bodies concealed underneath their cloaks; as evidenced by Frieza's ancestor Chilled using a hooded cloak when encountering Bardock on Planet Plant in Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock. Also, the one who destroyed Planet Vegeta was shown wearing a hooded cloak in an early flashback and we later learn that the one who destroyed the planet was Frieza himself.

In addition, it is to be noted that the name of the race partially derives from negative temperatures (in this case, Arctic), like the names of the members of Frieza's race.

It is worth noting however that the name 'Arcosian' is a term exclusive to the English dub.
