"Care to tell me what happened, Vegeta? Or is the wound to your ego still too raw to be examined? Judging by these stress fractures in your protective armor, you must've received quite a beating, and that's putting it lightly. I hope you're not entertaining ideas of revenge, I might not be here to put you back together next time."
— "A Friendly Surprise"

Malaka (ドクター Dokutā) is a green-skinned, reptilian alien with an orange Mohawk. He is the chief doctor of Planet Frieza 79 and a doctor on Planet Vegeta. He is mostly seen monitoring injured warriors as they heal in the Medical Machine.


Unlike most other soldiers in the Galactic Frieza Army, he is not violent and is quite polite when around Saiyans. In fact he is a model doctor, treating his patients with respect.

Malaka and Planthorr with Kakarot

On Planet Vegeta, Malaka appeared when Kakarot (aka Goku) was born. He and Planthorr were in charge of healing Bardock's wounds after Bardock and his teammates returned from Planet Kanassa. To Malaka's surprise, the scanners showed that Bardock's power reading was almost 10,000, which was enough to fight with King Vegeta. After Bardock was healed, Planthorr told Bardock that his teammates Tora, Shugesh, Borgos and Fasha were heading to Planet Meat, to where the Saiyan left soon afterward.
