Frieza, feared for ruthlessness and power, is a galactic emperor. Having conquered at least sixty planets, the overlord has an elite group of soldiers called the Ginyu Force. Gifted with natural fighting ability and increased strength after each battle, Saiyans made Frieza paranoid. Hearing the accomplishments of the low-level Bardock and acting on fears of SS legends, Frieza resolves to eliminate all possible threats. After Planet Vegeta got blown to smithereens, a story is fabricated to ensure the loyalty of Nappa, Raditz, and Vegeta. Planning to use the Dragon Balls to wish for immortality, Frieza bumps into Goku, who, after a strenuous and costly fight, annihilates his opponent.
