Main article: Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!! Two years after the defeat of Kid Buu, Vegeta's estranged brother Tarble, accompanied by his wife Gure, flee to Earth to seek Vegeta's assistance in defeating the brother duo, whom Tarble confesses have since become as powerful as Frieza and have been terrorizing a remote star which he calls home.
Cado and Avo pursuit Tarble and Gure to Earth using Attack Balls, where Trunks and Goten are unleashed on the two. After struggles from both sides, Cado and Avo merge into Aka, prompting Trunks and Goten to fuse into Gotenks and incite another battle. When Aka begins to demonstrate more significantly devastating power, Goku and Vegeta prepare to destroy him, however a trick Goku plays on Vegeta results in Goku successfully being the one to vanquish Aka.
During their time as minions of Frieza, Avo and Cado were ranked in the same tier as the Ginyu Force. In the time before they travel to Earth, according to Tarble, Avo and Cado have become as strong as their master Frieza was. Thus, Avo and Cado have power levels around 530,000.
Cado is easily defeated by Trunks in his base form. In the OVA, Cado is able to get the advantage over Trunks for a while but Trunks manages to outmatch him.
