"As if it matters what he thinks. What matters is what Lord Cooler thinks."
Neiz (ネイズ Neizu) is an antagonist and a member of Cooler's Armored Squadron, under the Galactic Frieza Army, in Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge. He is a brown humanoid amphibian-like alien, and can hide his head into his torso in order to dodge blasts. He accompanies Cooler and fights alongside Dore and Salza, pulling off poses similar to that of the Ginyu Force.
Neiz is a tall, brown reptilian humanoid. He has big yellow eyes, pointy ears, he wears the same upper body armor as his comrades, and he has a partial purple jumpsuit that covers his torso to his thighs. Neiz wears a blue scouter that is connected to a head strap.
Neiz seems to often underestimate his opponents. He often insults and laughs at his opponents during battle. Furthermore, he seems to like toying with his opponents.
Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge
Neiz arrives on Earth with Cooler and his teammates, Salza and Dore, in order to ambush Goku. He knocks Krillin out just as the latter is about to warn Gohan about Dore sneaking up behind him. He then fights against Goku after he arrives back at the campsite. After Dore traps Goku in a Bear Hug, he attempts to kick Goku, but Goku manages to avoid his kick, resulting in Neiz kicking Dore by mistake and arguing with him. While they are arguing, Goku deflects Salza's Full Power Energy Wave towards Neiz, to which Neiz notices and narrowly evades at the last second by retracting his head into his body. Later on, when he is ordered by Cooler to search for Goku after a failed attempt at killing Goku and Gohan by bombarding the landscape, he briefly detects Krillin's Ki Blast using his scouter, but ends up believing that his scouter is actually detecting a pterodactyl after narrowly avoiding one flying towards him. Afterwards, he fights Gohan and eventually Piccolo. While fighting Piccolo, he also avoided his Chasing Bullet ki blast by tucking his head into his body and then taunted him about missing him. However, he then learned from Salza that Piccolo had actually been aiming for Dore, with his being sucker punched by Piccolo when turning around to verify the claim. After Dore's death, Neiz attempts to neutralize Piccolo by using his Electric Bind Wave technique. This only results in a smirk from the Namekian as he grabs Neiz, sending the electricity through Neiz's body, thus frying and killing Neiz.
- Video games
In Dragon Ball Z III: Ressen Jinzōningen, Naise can kill Vegeta, if Vegeta didn't train enough. Since Vegeta has now a power level around Freeza's 3rd form, it's assumed this version Naise is slighly stronger than his movie version
- Guide books
According to Shonen Jump, Neiz prides himself on his speed (similar to Burter) and can create an electric charge from his body (similar to Kishime). Neiz also can pull his head into/and out of his body (similar to a turtle in its shell).
Daizenshuu 6 notes that the Armored Squadron possess power comparable to, or possibly greater than, Frieza's best men.

In this game he kidnaps Bulma, and Vegeta has to save her in order to train in her gravity room to prepare for the battle against the androids. Other enemies include Karmath (カーマス), a pun from Kamasu, a Japanese barracuda and Maine (マイネー).
He made his first appearance as a playable character in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 (with his name is spelled "Neizu"). Neiz also appears as a playable character in the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes.
And he appears in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle as a playable character. But for some reason his scouter is green instead of blue and his name is Naise instead of Neiz.

- His name comes from a pun on the condiment "mayonnaise".
- Out of all the Ginyu Force members, Neiz seems to be modeled after Burter in terms of appearance and personality.
- Neiz made two references to eating humanoids in the movie Coolers Revenge: the first was when Cooler shot Goku and Gohan into the waterfall area, Neiz commented "Smoked meat!", and the second was when he caught Piccolo in his Bind Wave he said "Deep-fried Nameks, yummy!" Both of these references were dub additions, as Neiz was originally silent in the first instance, and the second had Neiz asking impatiently when the body bind wave was going to start affecting Piccolo.
