Overview[edit]

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.

Cooler forces his way into Dragon Ball FighterZ as a DLC character, sporting a barbaric style in contrast to that of his brother: whereas Frieza likes to control the battlefield on his own terms, Cooler likes to dominate it with oppressive power.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Some attacks and super moves can overpower projectiles, or have incredibly high hitstun.
  • Long ranged attacks, some can even reach the entire stage
  • Lots of strong corner carry options, especially 5H, which help sets up for better positioning that will almost always lead to the corner.
  • Excellent defensive options with an invincible reversal that can be done in the air and a counter-based level 3 that will beat safejump setups if timed right.
  • Any stray hit can easily be comboed into a knockdown or ended in a super.
  • He's the better brother, no questions
  • One of the best intros in the game, never skip it.
  • Slow normals and specials.
  • Few true blockstrings.
  • Needs a lot of meter to perform his strongest combos on top of slow meter gain.
  • Most of his specials and supers swap the opponent, which can take an opponent out of a corner.
  • His DHC can be difficult to combo into because it requires the enemy to be grounded. It also makes other supers whiff due to it being a cinematic, which can be a hindrance at times.
  • The way his assist launches can make it difficult for some characters to follow up optimally, as it sends them very high.
  • He's a prick.

- L - - - -
  • Scales like an 'L' normal (Thanks a lot, Cell)

Hey, can you put that on a coaster?
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
- All - - - -
  • Will see much 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

236L/M/H (Air OK)
DBFZ Cooler DeathChaser.png
You've heard of Red Hot Kick, now get ready for Cooler Purple Kick
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
L - H - - - -
  • Does not knock down, but gives good corner carry
  • You can perform actions after Cooler kicks off of the opponent but before he hits the ground, allowing for easy safejump setups in the corner
  • You can airdash after this move if you've saved your aerial action, which allows you to tech chase or go for mixups

Placeholder

M - H - - - -
  • Gives sliding knockdown, but its slow startup means it cannot easily be comboed into without the help of an assist

Placeholder

H - H - - - -
  • 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


Death Breaker[edit]
Death Breaker
214L/M/H (Air OK)
DBFZ Cooler DeathBreaker.png
"When your planet is in ashes, then you have my permission to die."
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
L 900 All - - - -
  • Invulnerable to head property attacks only from the 1st frame.
  • The air version is invincible against air attacks.
  • Is a better starter than the other versions.
M 950 All - - - -
  • Fully invincible from the 1st frame.
  • Has rather high scaling, so combos out of this move will not deal much damage.
H 950 All - - - -
  • Fully invincible from the 1st frame.
  • Has rather high scaling, so combos out of this move will not deal much damage.

One hit, does a single rising knee kick.


Follow-up[edit]

  • Ender of choice due to not switching sides.
  • Causes a sliding knockdown.

  • Leaves Cooler next to the opponent.
  • If used after M Death Breaker, Cooler follows up with M Death Chaser

Death Flash[edit]

236S (Air OK)

'yyYYYEAAAAHHHH!!!'
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
- All - - - -
  • Multi-hitting beam with very slow startup
  • Don't use this in blockstrings unless you wanna get stuffed
  • Confirms into Death Crasher from full screen
  • Becomes more powerful if you shout "yyYYYEAAAAHHHH!!!" out loud


Death Shaker[edit]

214S

Fullscreen low considered ground breaking discovery
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
- L - - - -
  • Fullscreen low, can confirm into his level 1 or a vanish


Assist[edit]

Death Breaker
A1/A2

Faux Psyblade
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
800 All 27 - - -
  • 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.


Supers[edit]

Death Crasher[edit]
Death Crasher
236L+M or 236H+S

RRRRAAAAAAAAAHHH
DBFZ Cooler DeathCrasher2.png
"Imma plant ME a dumbass tree!"
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
2420 All - - - -
  • Switches sides (IE you 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

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).


Death Drop[edit]
Death Drop
j.236L+M or j.236H+S
DBFZ Cooler DeathDrop.png
THIS ISN'T FRIEZA'S LEVEL 3 I SWEAR
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
2000 H - - - -
  • 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

Thought you could just press buttons, did you?
DBFZ Cooler AtomicSupernova2.png
Like Frieza's, but bigger.
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Catch - - - - - -
  • Cooler's counter beats everything but grabs. Beams, ki blasts, buttons, even if you vanish in the middle of a move, there is no escape. Cooler will grab you anyway, and you are going to eat shit for it. This can work on Sparking as well, but the timing is very tight. Some specific things can beat it out, like doing rapid ki blasts into a DP, but it is still very strong for what it is. Has a lot of mindgame possibilities as well, as your opponent might force themselves to respect your wakeup if you have bar just so they don't get level 3'd.
  • Timed correctly, it will beat safejump setups as well
Attack 4020 - - - - -
  • Your opponent will still be able to recover blue health after the counter
Air 4770 Throw - - - -
  • Will hit standing opponents
  • Whiffs on crouching opponents
  • This is the DHC version of his level 3, as well.
