Frieza anime Dragon Ball Z (Japanese: ドラゴンボールZ (ゼット), Hepburn: Doragon Bōru Zetto, commonly abbreviated as DBZ) is the long-running anime sequel to the Dragon Ball anime and manga series originally created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. Frieza anime Dragon Ball Z premiered in Japan on Fuji Television on April 26, 1989, taking over its predecessor’s time slot, and ran until January 31, 1996, lasting 276 episodes and Dragon Ball Z movies are still being produced to this day.
Is Frieza a male or female?
Frieza anime is a male, as stated in Daizenshuu. Also, in a flashback scene in Frieza’s Revenge, Frieza refers to himself with masculine pronouns when speaking to his father. There has never been any hint of femininity about him. Therefore it is quite safe to say that he was originally intended to be male.
However, due to his appearance (long hair), people questioned if he was female and Toriyama later revealed that he always thought of Frieza as being male but only gave him long hair and various effeminate physical characteristics so that his final transformation would come as a surprise to everyone. The idea of Frieza being female didn’t even occur to Toriyama until fans started speculating on Frieza’s gender. He then said that Frieza was a man all along and explained why he had given Frieza feminine features in an interview published in Daizenshuu.
It should be noted however, that Android 21 does refer to herself with female pronouns throughout her appearances in Genovese , indicating she identifies herself as female. It is possible she identified Frieza as her mother because she considers herself superior over Frieda due to being created from pure evil while Frieda was born naturally and thus considers herself above him/her.
It is also possible that she simply called Frieza her mother as a way to insult her, as calling someone a bitch is considered an insult in modern day American English. Ironically, in Dragon Ball Fighters, Frieda calls his male servant Cui a bitch after he refuses to fight alongside him and leaves. Additionally, his sister Cooler is called a bitch by Frieza anime for attempting to steal his throne and rule over Planet Frieza instead of waiting for their father King Cold to die of natural causes. Finally, in Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, Dr. Lychee calls Frieza a bitch when he attempts to take advantage of Bulma’s weakened state while she was under mind control

Upon arrival Vegeta easily outclasses Frieza until Frieza transforms into his second form whereupon he becomes much stronger than Vegeta due to becoming much more powerful upon each transformation unlike other characters such as Trunks or Gotenks who become weaker upon transformations. After transforming Frieza decides to let Vegeta live long enough to see him transform into his third form, whereupon Frieza destroys Planet Vegeta and kills everyone except for Goku, Krill in, Bulmer and one surviving soldier named Jacob.
Frieza’s power continues to increase exponentially throughout his different forms reaching its peak at 100% Full Power. At 100% Full Power Frieza’s power level far surpasses any character in either series including Super Saipan Blue Goku and Future Trunks. However despite having superior power compared to anyone else in universe 7 except for Whis-Beerus-Champa trio Whis states that even with full power Frieza cannot defeat Goku or Future Trunks because they are simply too strong whereas Whis himself can defeat them without going all out due to how strong he is.
