"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 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.


Bardock - The Father of Goku


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.

Namek Saga


Malaka is confused as to why Vegeta does not accept his scouter

On Planet Frieza 79, Malaka was in charge of healing Vegeta in the Medical Machine after his defeat on Earth. After Vegeta was healed, Malaka was shocked at the excessive damage to the armor that occurred during the Saiyan's visit to Earth. When Vegeta rushes to his pod to go to Namek, he runs into Malaka holding a scouter, which the defecting Saiyan takes reluctantly.

Frieza Saga

Malaka and Planthorr's last moments on Planet Vegeta

  • In Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku, it was believed that Malaka was still on Planet Vegeta when Frieza destroyed it, supposedly killing him. However, this is inconsistent with the fact that he makes later appearances in the Namek Saga, Frieza Saga, Trunks Saga, and Dragon Ball Z: Revival of "F", which means he could have escaped from the Saiyan planet via the launch center after evacuating as many of Frieza's personnel as he could. This plot hole was somewhat corrected in Dragon Ball Z Kai.
  • It is assumed Malaka managed to survive his boss, Frieza's attack on Planet Vegeta, if he didn't then it was another member of this race who treated Vegeta on Planet Frieza 79 after his deadly battle on Earth.
  • In Dragon Ball Z Kai, Malaka appears in the first episode of the first arc, and the first episode of the second and third arc.
