Frieza's revenge was a conflict fought between the forces protecting Earth, and Frieza's army. The conflict's final resolution came with Goku defeating Frieza.
Following his defeat on Namek by Goku, the shattered Frieza was then reworked by King Cold and his men. Then Frieza and his father went to Earth in order to slaughter Goku and his friends. Both were later killed by Future Trunks. However, Cooler, Frieza's older brother went to Earth for revenge and was defeated by Goku twice.
With the Cold family defeated and empire in the midst of collapse, the interim leader of the Galactic Frieza Army, Sorbet and his bodyguard Tagoma headed to Earth in order to collect the Earth's seven Dragon Balls and revive their emperor. The two, with the help of the Pilaf Gang eventually managed to collect all seven and wished for Frieza's revival, then taking him away in their spaceship for rejuvenation before the Z Fighters could make a move. The long-forgotten captain of the Ginyu Force, Ginyu himself, also noticed Frieza's revival; as he was in the area in his frog body at the time. Upon being regenerated, Frieza decided to train for four months in order to greatly increase his power, and that after this he would invade Earth to have revenge against the Saiyans who humiliated him.
For the next four months after his revival Frieza trained in order to increase his power enough to defeat Goku. Frieza succeeded in increasing his power to a level on par with the gods, and then unlocked an even more powerful Ultimate Evolution. Also, during this period of time Frieza's elite soldiers Tagoma and Shisami's power also somehow increased substantially. Frieza assembled an army of 1,000 soldiers, dubbed the Frieza Force, and began his invasion of Earth.
However, Frieza was aware of the possibility that even his Ultimate Evolution may fail, and so he created two backup plans in case of this. His Plan B was for Sorbet to hide and sneak attack the opponent with his Bad Ring Laser if Frieza were to end up in a bad position during the fight, and his last ditch plan involved using a new technique which would detonate the planet in order to kill all of his enemies while he himself survived.

- In Xenoverse 2, in an altered timeline Cooler is revived by the second wish that had originally been taken by the Pilaf Gang. As a result, Metal Cooler joins his brother in his revenge. However even with Cooler's assistance, Goku manages to defeat Frieza, causing the tyrant to blow up the Earth, which succeeds in killing Goku and the Z Fighters originally saved from Earth's destruction by Whis, as Towa had tricked Beerus and Whis to travelling to the Time Nest in Age 782. The Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) who had been sent to assist the Z Fighters in combating Frieza to fix Towa's alterations, is saved by Xeno Trunks and returns to Age 782. However after learning of Towa's manipulation, Beerus, Whis, and the Future Warrior return to Age 779 and Whis uses his Temporal Do-Over to rewind time, allowing the Future Warrior to stop Frieza from destroying the Earth, forcing him and his brother to transform into their Supervillain forms. However they are defeated by the combined might of Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, and the Future Warrior. Goku would later repay the Future Warrior by having Whis transport him to Age ??? to aid the Future Warrior in the final battle against Final Form Mira.
- It has been implied that if Frieza had actually trained his Ultimate Evolution or actually fought Goku seriously upon transforming, Frieza actually could have killed Goku with his Golden Form without any training and with little struggle. Or if Frieza had actually trained the form, he could have killed Goku and his allies.
