Bio Suit is a form of natural armor/clothing worn by members of Frieza's race.
Members of Frieza's race posses the unique ability to grow their own clothing and armor from their own body tissue. Even when it seems as though a member of Frieza's race is unclothed they are generally wearing Bio Suits, these natural clothes can be removed at will or replaced with newly grown clothing. Even when wearing artificial clothing like Battle Armor, members have a Bio Suit underneath what ever they are wearing (basically acting as a form of undergarment). Should their artificial clothing be removed (either due to damage in battle, by powering up, or removed at the wearer's discretion) the Bio Suit underneath remains until it is replaced by newly grown clothing. Due to Bio Suits being made from their own bodily tissue, it can transform and grow along with its wearer via Nightmare Transformation. As demonstrated by Frieza, when transforming from their race's 3rd form to their True Form, the 3rd forms Bio Suit shatters and they emerge wearing a new sleeker Bio Suit which removes any damage sustained to the previous Bio Suit (as demonstrated by Frieza re-growing his Tail). The True Form's Bio Suit is made up of strong tissue and as demonstrated by Cooler, can further transform and grow along with its wearer via Super Evolution. It is also implied by Frieza that members of his race can choose the color of the tissue their Bio Suits, as he stated that he made the tissue gold colored for the Bio Suit of his Ultimate Evolution. The ability to alter the tissue's color is also seen in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse.
Via synthetic modification, Bio Suit tissue can be combined with mechanical parts to create Cosmic Suits that increase their power and/or to repair physical damage after being heavily injured.
Due to having the appearance of a member of Frieza's race, Super Janemba wears a pink Bio Suit.

- Cooler is the only member of his family who does not wear any form of artificial clothing, implying that he prefer his races natural armor over the Battle Armor worn by brother Frieza, his father King Cold, and nephew Kuriza. Frieza and Kuriza only remove their Battle Armor in order to transform. King Cold is the only member of his family who is never shown without his Battle Armor. Chilled was also known to wear artificial clothing as well.
- Bio Suits are similar to the concept of the birthday suit (a slang term for nudity) as it is part of the their natural body.
- It also bore some resemblance in terms of function to the bio suits worn by the Aliens from the film franchise Independence Day, including being used to augment the race and acting as buffer zones for their power. However, the similarities were coincidental, as the first Independence Day was released in 1996, after Dragon Ball Z ended.
- Due Frieza's race characters inability to use Nightmare Transformation in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, the Bio Suits viewed as an alternative, allowing players to alter a Frieza race Future Warrior's armor.
- Ironically in Xenoverse despite its depiction as biological armor that is grown, most of the Bio Suits must actually be purchased (save for the default Bio Suit) at the Clothing Shop in Toki Toki City's Industrial Sector just like the other racially exclusive clothing options.
- Bio Suits are another example of Frieza race's unique biology and racial abilities.
- It is possible that due to possessing Frieza and Cold's cells, the Bio-Android Cell may also wear a form of Bio Suit exclusive to Bio-Androids, due to similarities. However, if true Cell's Bio Suit would likely be a permanent part of him (though it can still grow and transform with him).
