This is a list of notable techniques used by Frieza which have appeared in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, Dragon Ball Super, and various video games spun off by the Dragon Ball series.


Physical Abilities

Thanks to being a mutant prodigy, Frieza has incredible natural abilities.


Frieza pummels Gohan

  • Superhuman Strength: Frieza possess the capability to match the likes of Goku in physical strength and easily shatter plateaus, break the ground with kicks and punches and cause shockwaves. After his four months of training he produce shockwaves that could shatter cliffs while punching at cloud level and make a shockwaves that caused the ground to break shatter and break apart, he was able to make a larger crater, and cause several massive shockwaves that broke the clouds.
  • Superhuman Durability: Even without ki, whilst cut in half and with half his face blasted off, Frieza was capable of surviving the destruction of a planet. After training he could withstand a massive Kamehameha and his own Death Ball exploding right next to him. He has been thrashed by characters much stronger than him and recovered quickly (God of Destruction Toppo and Jiren's full power) without much injuries.
  • Superhuman Speed: Despite this ability not quite like Instant Transmission, Frieza can move so fast that he appears as if he's teleporting, even to characters like Goku, Vegeta and even King Kai, who can track faster than light vehicles, and in one scene Frieza runs on water and creates several sonic booms. After training, he could easily more faster than Gohan as a Super Saiyan could track with his first form and keep up with Goku in his fourth form. He has kept up with Dyspo, who was lightspeed with his technique, in his final form without going all out and trace his movements easily. In his golden form he was able to easily exceed such speeds.

Natural Abilities

Frieza puts himself back together

Frieza tries to put himself back together

  • Survivability: Frieza has the ability to survive anywhere, in any condition without sustenance, even the most horrifying injuries, a trait which was passed onto Cell. This is shown when he manages to survive being blasted into Namek's core and then the planet exploding with him inside it, he still survives even with his lower body sliced off and half of his head blown off, while floating in the vacuum of space. His most impressive feat in this area being how he managed to stay alive and conscious even when sliced into small pieces by Future Trunks. Even when in pieces, Frieza was still able to attempt to put himself back together via telekinesis - though he fell apart very quickly.
    • Oxygen Independence: Frieza can breathe without atmospheric air, enabling him to survive in space, which is why he is not afraid to attack a planet with the Death Ball, Supernova, or Earth Breaker.
  • Bio Suit creation: Frieza's race possess the natural ability to grow natural armor that they can shed at any time. In his true form, Frieza always wears the Z Fighting Suit. It is implied that Frieza can control the color of his Bio Suit in his Ultimate Evolution as he claims he made it gold so it would be easy to understand how strong he had become to his enemies.
  • Superhuman senses: Frieza seems to have enhanced senses even without ki. He hears of Ultra-instinct from the stands, despite being in the arena during the Tournament of Power, something of which only Kefla (who enhanced senses are doubled from fusion), Pirina and Saonel (both Namekian thus have incredible hearing) seem to be able to accomplish without being close to the stands. He's also shown to possess enhanced sight during the Namek saga, as he witnessed Dende heal Piccolo despite being far away. He’s seen through Dyspo's movements whom even Vados could barely notice.
  • Regeneration – While minor injuries seem to be of minor nuisance to him, his ability to regenerate lost body parts is not as advanced as the two other major villains of the series. In the English dub only, Frieza makes a copy of the ability on his scouter for future use when Nail regenerates his arm during their battle. During his battle against the Z Fighters on Namek, Frieza's tail stump seems to cope with the bleeding after some time, and grows back to its regular stage when he transforms from his third to his final form. After gaining immortality in Supersonic Warriors, Frieza restores his body to how it was before being damaged by Super Saiyan Goku. Regeneration is also used by the Ghost Warrior Frieza through Destron Gas.

Mental Abilities

While not shown a whole lot, Frieza has a multitude of talents, like being a capable leader with a degree of cruel charisma and success in his manipulations. Combined with a newly developed tactical sense and expert hand-hand prowess has made him a deadly opponent for nearly any opponent.

  • Indomitable will: His most astounding ability, is his extreme willpower in the face of all adversity. Even when being dominated by a clearly superior opponent, he would continue fighting no matter the cost (rarely pleading for his life when on his knees). He was unwilling to change his ways and repent for his sins, even though he experienced living hell with the Angels of Hell and persevered through this eternal torture, demonstrating another example of his strong will. He was been brutally crushed by Toppo, yet got back up quickly and fought back all the while holding his ground, getting back up several times from painful beatings and fighting passionately in the face of adversity. This trait is somewhat deconstructed, as he refuses to cut his losses to admit defeat and leave, which resulted in his death twice.
  • Tactical Analysis: Something he has developed in his resurrection, is the ability to analyze opponents and events (although not on the same level as Piccolo or Android 17). During his battle with Universe 9's Assassins, he took advantage of a Energy of Destruction ball and threw it at Goku to keep him contained. During that short time period, he propositioned his services to Universe 9 in order to avoid possible erasure. After that he noted that the tournament is making the gods themselves nervous and planned to use that to his advantage. During the tournament, he quickly deduced the basics of Instant transmission and countered it easily. Tricked Frost into going into his 100% Full Power form in order to slow him down and knocked him out of the arena. Upon seeing Jiren's power, he pragmatically gave power to Goku in the desire to avoid such an opponent at all costs (which is remarkable as before he would never consider such an opponent as a threat in the past). Easily analyzed Dyspo's Light Bullet movements and understood it's linear nature. Acknowledged Gohan strategy to knock out Dyspo and eliminated two birds with one stone by eliminating them both. After being knocked down by Toppo, he took advantage of him being off-guard and trapped him in paralysis, all the while using manipulated Kachi Katchin to crush him (as it is the strongest metal in the mutliverse, it could have hurt the former if not for the destruction shield).
  • Leadership: this is a imbalanced trait as his volatile nature makes him difficult to live under or get along with, although he can be quite charismatic to those he treats well, shown through how the Ginyu Force members all admire and obey his orders very zealously. Yet he has eliminated his loyal followers without hesitation and is very hard on them for even the smallest of things. He allows imbalance in his forces in order to weed out the weak, and shows mercy to those who loses in such events (something that even Beerus commends him for). In the manga, he is threatening to his followers yet tolerant of their actions and less likely to kill them for such things. In the anime however, he is very pitiless towards his minions and kills over minor things. His leadership quality after his resurrection, has declined from the sheer mental instability he developed from his losses. Insulting, threatening and killing anyone who even so as much questions his desires, brutally torturing his training partners in order to grow stronger. Finally, slaughtering his whole army just to power up has minimized this trait considerably.
  • Divination – Seemingly thanks to his psychic abilities, Frieza possess a small amount of premonition powers, as on Namek he can feel that a Saiyan is developing in power somewhere, despite being unable to sense ki, and so sends for the Ginyu Force.[1]

Energy Abilities

  • Flight – The ability of flight through the manipulation of ki.
  • Ki Sense – At the time of the Battle on Namek, like the rest of his minions, who use scouters as a compromise, Frieza seems to be unable to sense the ki of other people. However, he is able to have a glimpse of a "powerful Saiyan developing and heading to Namek" before the person in question (Goku) actually appeared in front of him. Also, given enough time, Frieza can lock his senses and his mind onto his opponent to read his/her position at any given moment; he demonstrates this when he begins fighting Goku with 50% of his power. Frieza was able to sense Jiren's energy during the Tournament of Power. In Shin Budokai, Frieza gains the ability to sense ki and suppress his own ki, and he also displays the ability in Dragon Ball GT.
  • Ki Transfer - The ability to transfer a portion of one's ki to someone else, used in the Universal Survival Saga when Frieza did this to Goku, in a twist of fate seeing as Goku did this towards Frieza on Namek.


Energy Techniques

Offensive Techniques

Dragonball 17548

Frieza charging a Death Beam

  • Death Beam – Also known as Frieza Beam, this is Frieza's favored killing technique. He extends one arm and fires a small, bullet-like beam of ki from his index finger. It is able to be fired very quickly while maintaining precise aim. It can vary from either an explosion or piercing attack; killing Dende and Vegeta, respectively in this fashion, and also heavily wounds Piccolo, as well as Gohan in Dragon Ball Super when he tortures him in order to get Goku to arrive. Called Death Beam in the U.S. releases of recent Dragon Ball Z video games. His third form uses a variant of this attack called Crazy Finger Beam, where he fires continuous Death Beams all at once; this attack is used on Piccolo during the Frieza Saga.
    • Death Bullet – A single small burst of energy that is usually used as part of the Crazy Finger Beam technique. Named in Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit.
      • Full Power Death Bullet – A powerful finger blast shot from the index finger. Named in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, where it is used by Frieza in his third form.

          • Cage of Light - A supportive variation. Frieza continously fires Golden Death Beams to form a cage, with the beams functioning as iron bars to stop his opponent's movements.

Frieza using Eye Lasers to destroy Guru's house

  • Eye Laser – Precise laser-like beam shot from the eyes. Mild potency, but fast and able to nullify lesser attacks and small projectiles, as well as destroy weaker opponents and obstacles. It is used by Frieza against King Vegeta's Elite Saiyan army who would try to save Prince Vegeta from Frieza (just after he killed King Vegeta with one blow and shortly before he destroyed Planet Vegeta), to enter the hut of the Namekian Grand Elder Guru while seeking the Dragon Balls, and in battle with Goku while fighting in final form.
    • Destructive Ray - An eye laser variation used by his brother. After the 1.09.00 Update in Xenoverse 2, it can be added to 1st Form Frieza's custom skillset after purchasing it for 5 TP Medals in Partner Customization. Presumably learned from his brother.
    • Floating Attack – Eye Lasers used in the air. Named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
  • Invisible Eye Blast – An invisible ki blast shot from the eyes. Used against Goku, who counters and cancels it out with the same technique.
  • Death Ball – Frieza creates a spark of ki lights on the index finger and, once enough energy is gathered, this spark may grow to the size of a small moon. When ready, this Death Ball is thrown towards the target. Typically, this attack is used to destroy planets or as a last-ditch effort to kill an opponent.
    • Black Hole Death Ball – The basic version of the Death Ball, charged by Frieza for use against Goku on Namek, and for use against Kale and Caulifla in the Tournament of Power, but was never fired on either occasion.
    • Supernova – A more powerful version of the Death Ball used by both Frieza and his brother Cooler. Used by Frieza when he destroyed Planet Vegeta and the second time against Future Trunks. The name of the technique comes from the Budokai Tenkaichi series.
    • DUAL Supernova - A two person team attack version of Supernova that appears as Frieza's Dual Ultimate Attack skill in Xenoverse 2 after the 1.09.00 Update. After a successful initial attack and secondary assist has been performed by both partners (one initiating it with the skill while the other simply performs the follow up assist attack) the two users attack with Supernova at the same time causing the opponent to be hit by two planet destroying Supernovas. Frieza can use it with the Future Warrior, Time Patroller NPCs, or when teamed with himself.
    • Destroy The Planet! – A variation of the Death Ball that Frieza uses in an attempt to destroy Planet Namek following Goku's transformation to Super Saiyan. However, he held back too much power, resulting in the planet being nearly destroyed. Named in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
    • 100% Death Ball – An enormous pink energy sphere covered with electricity which is thrown at Goku while he is underwater during their battle on Namek. Though Goku is able to punch it into space, it still hits another planet, destroying it faster than any other planet destroyed by Frieza in the series. This attack was never used in the manga.

  • Whirlwind Blow – Frieza uses this attack against three Namekians by lightly blowing, which produces strong winds that forms a tornado. Since he is shown to only use this once and in his weakest form, it may hint Frieza only uses this attack on feeble opponents.

Named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where he uses it in his first, final, and 100% Power forms.

    • Psycho Blast – Using his telekinesis, Frieza lifts and throws rocks at his opponent. Used against Goku.

Frieza can manipulate this ball as much as he wants, but it explodes as soon as it touches any surface other than Frieza himself. It is called Psylock Smasher in Budokai Tenkaichi 2. Also, a similar attack is used in Budokai Tenkaichi 3, called I might die this time (perhaps due to that being any victim's thoughts), in which Frieza shoots some rocks at the opponent, and if it hits, uses the Imprisonment Ball, and throws the opponent to the ground.
    • Psychic Move – Frieza creates invisible Ki blades and swipes them at the opponent, knocking them back and creating a crater. Used in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series.
    • Death Psycho Bomb – Frieza's version of one of Vegeta's deadly attacks, Dirty Fireworks.

He uses this technique to kill Krillin which triggered Goku's transformation into a Super Saiyan thus ironically triggered the beginning of his downfall.
    • Gigantic Rock Throw - In the Tournament of Power, Frieza throws a large chunk of Kachi Katchin at Toppo to nullify his Destruction attack.
  • Death Wave – A powerful long blade-like energy beam Frieza creates with two of his fingers and that can slice through anything, as stated by Frieza.

In the Xenoverse series, it is used by Dark Frieza to attack Super Saiyan Goku in cutscenes following Goku's transformation. In Xenoverse, SSJ Goku dodges the blasts though a stray blast almost hits Gohan and Piccolo though they are shielded by the Future Warrior to prevent their deaths from altering history. In Xenoverse 2, however SSJ Goku doesn't dodge at all taking each hit but is unfazed by Dark Frieza's attack, thus the 2nd Future Warrior does not have to intervene to protect Gohan and Piccolo like their predecessor did.
    • Last Emperor – The powerful blast Frieza uses in a final attempt to kill Goku, who counters with the Angry Kamehameha. Named in Xenoverse 2.
    • Death Blaster – A Full Power Energy Wave used by Mecha Frieza against Super Saiyan Trunks.
