Overview

Cooler has a brutish build and shows off his raw power to skip neutral, but is a surprisingly solid and balanced character. Cooler has very good mid-screen control thanks to his absolutely huge normals, divekicks and j.S, as well as long strings that have plenty stagger and frame trap opportunities. The most notable thing that Cooler can do is counter metas or predictable strategies. Cooler's Genocidal Uppercut (3H) lunges him forward with a projectile and air invulnerable charge for about 70% of the screen, and can be cancelled into 5S on block to make it either safe or plus if the opponent is still in the air. With these tools used properly, Cooler can counter many keepaway strategies and lock down the opponent. Complete with a DPDragon PunchA move that has invulnerability during its startup, long recovery, and a rising motion. and a frame 1 counter Level 3, Cooler is well-rounded and can go toe to toe with anyone, and their pitiful beam assists too.


"I'm not short-sighted like my brother. I will be sure to exterminate every last one of you!"
Lore:Cooler is Frieza's older brother and the eldest son of King Cold. After hearing of the demise of his brother, Cooler went to Earth to kill the Saiyan responsible for it, not out of family love, but honor, as he always considered himself superior to his little brother, and to show it, he developed his own transformation to surpass Frieza. Even with his new transformation, he would still be vanquished by the selfsame Saiyan that defeated his younger brother.
Playstyle
DBFZ Cooler Icon.png Cooler is an all-arounder who dominates the battlefield with oppressive range, in barbaric contrast to his brother.
Pros Cons
  • Gigantic Buttons: Big range and utility on normals like Genocidal Uppercut, an anti air that beats projectiles.
  • Space Control: Commands the screen with Death Chaser, Flash, Shaker, and the aforementioned 3H.
  • Corner Carry: Strong corner carry abilities like 5H that will almost always lead to the corner after a combo.
  • Defense: Death Breaker is a huge air-OK reversal, and Atomic Supernova is a counter-based level 3 that can beat safejump set-ups.
  • Solid Pressure: Multiple pressure options along with a couple of good staggers and frametraps.
  • Slow: Slow normals and specials, along with hurtboxes as big as his hitboxes. His normals are somewhat safe thanks to pushback, but can be made safe with 5S.
  • Side-Switches: A lot of Cooler's moves side-switch at inopportune times, likely a price for his vast corner carry.
  • Whiff Punishment: Huge hurtboxes paired with lengthy recovery make Cooler susceptible to whiff punishes.
  • Solo Combos: His basic combo structure leads to an arguably average damage output.
  • Assists in Neutral: Both assists have relatively slow start-up, limiting their usefulness in neutral.

  • Combo and blockstring filler.
  • Like most characters, this is Cooler's best starter.
  • Connects after a vanish with microdash 5L whiff.

Huge range and moves Cooler forward a lot. Unsafe on block, but due to Cooler generally having great pressure you might be able to get away with staggering this.

  • Like most of his mediums, 5M is really long range.
  • Moves Cooler forwards slightly, giving it even more range.

Because of pushback, 5M > 2M or 2M > 5M can result in the opponent not having enough range to challenge Cooler, while Cooler still has enough range to hit them.

  • Carries the opponent to the current wall on Smash hit, making it a powerful corner carry tool.
  • Usable after a low j.2H in the corner for optimal combo setups.

Best used midscreen when you land a max range 2M.

500 All - 13 - Total 38 -5 -
  • Single-hit projectile that travels about half-screen.
  • Integral to Cooler's pressure, but not really useful in neutral.
  • Typically used after 6H in both pressure and combos, allowing Cooler to cancel into 5H, 2H, 3H or any specials.
  • Has very high hitstun, allowing for sparking loops and even superdash in the corner.

Cooler's 5S seems like combo filler at first, but it's actually quite a good stagger tool. The opponent will be pushed decently back from Cooler, enabling several possible options to continue pressure and punish the opponent for getting impatient.

  • Exchanges the low property for huge range.
  • Good for staggers due to it's fast startup and large range.
  • Outranges 5L by a good margin.

Because 5L has bad range, you'll use this to mash out of pressure and for some blockstrings.

  • Cooler's most ignorant normal.
  • Can link into 5H or 6H at the start of the round for a decent corner carry setup.
  • Has a hefty hurtbox befitting of its range, so make sure it doesn't whiff.
  • Can connect 5S and 214S at max range after hit.

Really dumb. At max range, Cooler must cancel into 5H to start a combo.

  • You can perform 5H after 6H but not vice-versa, so be careful how you structure your pressure.
  • Confirms from 2M on hit but not 5M.
  • Ground bounces on air hit.

  • Also has Anti-Air properties.
  • Able to combo into Super Dash on hit. Can gatling into 5S on block to make it safe.
  • If the opponent blocks this high enough, 5S will make Cooler +1.

This move goes through a lot of stuff. Abuse it.

  • Has more use than its grounded counterpart due to being the only way to confirm air strings into j.214X and j.236L/H.
  • Does not have enough hitstun on its own to combo into j.236M.
  • Can be linked after j.2H in the corner to squeeze a little extra damage out of combos.

Used a lot like SS Goku's j.S in neutral, in that you'll primarily use it to snipe opponents trying to stop you. Cooler gets extra mileage off of it due to smarter opponents watching for his divekicks.

  • Launches the opponent sideways (even though he's clearly kicking upwards), much like Cell's j.2H.
  • If used close to the ground in the corner, it also allows for grounded follow-ups (including Dragon Rush).

If you're close enough to the corner it can combo into 236M or 214M, which is useful for securing knockdowns when you hit the opponent with a raw superdash.

  • Damage: Raw / Non-Smash / Smash
  • L and M versions make Cooler bounces back on hit, while H versions keep him grounded.
  • During the bounce back, Cooler can perform actions before he hits the ground. If you've saved air actions during the combo, this allows for an easy airdash safejump in the corner, or tech chase, mixups, etc.
  • H versions' lack of bounce back has a slight advantage: Since his ground Lv1 does more damage than his aerial one, this is one of the few ways he can combo into this ground Super.
Ground L 1280 High - 24 5 21 -4 ~ -1 -
Air L 1120 High - 20 Until L 21 -6 ~ -1 -
  • Causes soft knockdown that can still be extended with Supers.

The opponent recovers quite fast after this which can be useful for instant overheads, or cheeky lows for when they're anticipating the overhead.

Ground M 1490 High D1 27 7 21 +1 ~ +5 -
Air M 1330 High D1 27 Until L 21 +1 ~ +5 -
  • Smash hit gives sliding knockdown, but its slow startup means it cannot easily be comboed into without the help of an assist or Smash j.2H.
  • Non Smash only hits twice, soft knockdown like the L version.
  • Plus on block.

Mostly used as a pressure reset, 236L and 236H are better in every way for mixup.

Ground H 1630 High D1 24 5 21 +2 ~ +5 -
Air H 1470 High D1 20 Until L 21 ±0 ~ +5 -
  • Smash hit gives even better sliding knockdown than the M version, combined with the L version's speed, making it an ideal combo ender for both pressure and damage.
  • Non Smash only hits twice, soft knockdown like L version.
  • Also plus on block.

Useful in both pressure and combos. If you still want 236L's corner carry while not having to deal with a weaker knockdown, use this.

  • Has Anti-Air property.
  • Scales less than the other versions.
  • Can still call assists on block or whiff.
  • Can be used after a blocked j.H for a silly double overhead, often messes with people's muscle memory.

Primarily used to end corner combos at high scaling. Sometimes used as a cheeky, long range anti-air along with assist calls to make it safe.

Ground M 950 All - 18 - - -44 1-21 All
Air M 950 All - 14 - - - 1-17 All

It's a DP with a great hitbox and lots of range. Some opponents might not be able to punish Cooler on whiff thanks to how far he goes.

Air H 1000 All - 10 - - - 1-13 All
  • 214M invul with 214L's speed.
  • Powers up the H followup.

Usually used along with the H followup to get as much damage as possible.

All versions are your go-to corner combo enders. There's next to no reason to not go for the followup.

  • Larger hitbox than the other DP assists, which can make it a slightly more useful tool for getting out of pressure.
  • Invincible from frame 10 onwards.
  • Takes up a huge portion of the screen and is confirmable on hit with superdash.

  • His 3H.

Goes through beams and Ki blasts BUT is vulnerable at the very start of the assist. Really good assist for dealing with very campy-zoning heavy teams.

  • yyyyyYYYEEEEEAaaAAAH

Cooler performs his 236S, and on hit he appears behind the opponent and follows up with a dunk. Easily the best of this kind of assist because of the beam voiceline.

2420 All UDV 10+4~9 - - -27 10-? All
  • Switches sides, you'll lose corner pressure if used in the corner.
  • Not invincible until after startup.
  • Cinematic super, so other projectiles will whiff when Cooler's is used.
  • DHC-ing immediately won't trigger the side switch while not sacrificing too much damage.
  • Minimum Damage: 908 (360 + 150*2 + 248)

Not a bad level 1, as it can easily connect from most of Cooler's tools, most notably from a full screen 214S. The side switch is a bit of a hindrance. However, with the right team compositions, you can use this to get right back into the corner (most notably, Super Saiyan Goku's level 3 will give Goku hard knockdown in the corner, due to how his level 3 works).

  • Easily confirms off of the M and H versions of Death Chaser and any version of Death Breaker.
  • The only one of Cooler's supers that doesn't switch sides, making it the best option for keeping the opponent cornered after a combo.
  • Input 2369L+M/H+S to use this super after a grounded combo if you want to avoid Death Crasher's side switch.
  • Vulnerable to Anti-Airs similar to Vegito's Omega Finishing Blow.
  • Minimum Damage: 800 (320 + 480)

Ground Counter - - - - - Total 71 - 1-42 Strike, Projectiles Guard
Ground Attack 4020 Throw UDV - - - - -
  • On the ground, Cooler uses up 3 Ki gauges and enters a stance. He will only attack if he is hit during this stance.
  • Has guard point against everything but grabs. However its downfall comes from the fact that:
  • It will only stun the opponent on guarding physical attacks.
  • The actual attack is a throw that will whiff on crouching, low profile attacks, or even characters falling down.
  • All of these combined means a lot of projectile attacks will get away scot-free, e.g. shooting Ki blasts and spamming 2H, Vanish on reaction to the grab.
  • However, it can do a few things other Level 3s cannot, notably countering safejumps.

This super is better than how it seems. Cooler loses corner, but has more than enough advantage to go for a left-right mixup as well as a meaty 2M. Combined with the rest of Cooler's options and it can be surprisingly scary to block.

Air 4770 Throw UDV 10+3 - Until L - 1-23 All
  • Has frame 1 invulnerability like typical Level 3 but is vulnerable to Anti-Airs.
  • Minimum damage: 1779.
  • Whiffs on crouchers, but will hit anyone in the air.
  • This is also Cooler's DHC.

The same as his grounded Level 3, only without the counter. Can be comboed into with j.S -> 236L/H or j.S 214L/M/H + H.
