Overview[edit]

"Now, start begging for your life! Not that I'll listen...haha!"


Frieza is a vicious galactic tyrant who rules over many planets with an iron fist after inheriting part of his father (King Cold)'s empire. Personally responsible for driving the Saiyan race to the brink of extinction, Frieza would be defeated by Goku, one of the very Saiyans he loathed. He would later be killed by Trunks, a half-Saiyan youth from the future. Unfortunately, death would not keep Frieza for long, as his henchmen would wish him back to life with the Dragon Balls. With a new lease on life, Frieza would train in order to carry out his revenge against Goku and his friends.



Playstyle
DBFZ Frieza Icon.png Frieza is a strong zoning character who can push opponents away from him before attacking them with strong projectile attacks.
Pros Cons
  • Exceptional space control with long range (sometimes full-screen) normals and specials.
  • EX Death Slash is an instant screenfiller that only costs half a bar and is safe.
  • Solid offensive options with good lows and a command cross-up in 22S.
  • Decent if not good frame data, only -2 on 2M, and a pressure reset in Death Saucer that simultaneously enables tricky mixups.
  • Plenty of long and powerful combos, especially in Sparking, allowing Frieza to deal high damage and get the opponent in a very bad situation.
  • Fast, powerful and annoying assists that allow him to go just about anywhere on a team.
  • Golden Frieza is one of the best supers in the game, enabling for terrifying and deadly comeback potential thanks to its speed, damage and reverse beat. Sparking also pauses its timer, and it combined with Limit Break gives Frieza a whopping 40% damage boost. It even increases the damage of his assists.
  • Unconventional 2H, leaves an anti-air blind spot above his head and is ignored by projectile immune attacks.
  • Higher execution barrier for his optimal combos compared to the average character.
  • Is a "zoner" in a game that favors rushdown and non-zoner playstyles.

5LLL 400 / 0,1000 All U3+ 13 3 23 -5 -
  • Tracks fullscreen.
  • At very close range, the explosion sends them outward. Otherwise, it sends them inward.

Often useful after a vanish extension.


5M[edit]

DBFZ Frieza 5M.png
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
700 All - 13 5 17 -6 -
  • Deceptively good range.

Hops over a few lows, and is very useful in both combos and blockstrings.


5H[edit]

"Filthy monkey, meet General Mountain!"
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
150, 100*8 All U1 13 - 46 (from first active frame) -12 -
  • Smash on the first hit, wall bounces.
  • The rocks themselves keep grounded opponent standing, can't be Super Dashed through, and disappear on Vanish.

Good for controlling ground space.

Despite the rocks being nullified by Broly's Powered Shell, the initial smash hit will break through it.


5S[edit]
5S

300*6 All - 11 2 [(11)1*6] 25 - -

  • Sixth hit launches and wall bounces.

Can be followed up with 236M > Vanish.


2L[edit]

400 Low - 7 3 13 -4 -
  • Low-hitting 2L. Not the best range, but quite useful as it's a low.

850 All - 17 3 31 -19 -
  • Can't be super dashed through.
  • Counts as a projectile, so certain moves can beat it (Janemba 22S, Z Broly 214S)

A quite unconventional 2H, as it has massive horizontal range but lacks coverage above Frieza’s head.


2S[edit]
2S

THOT VAPORIZER!
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
700 All - 15 1 24 - -
  • 1S shoots almost horizontally, 2S shoots at a 30 degree angle, 3S shoots at a 60 degree angle.

Good range and covers some useful anti-air angles, but it can unfortunately be super dashed through so it's not great at that job.

Mostly a combo filler.

  • Smash on air-to-air. Causes sliding knockdown.

j.S > j.2H is an everywhere meterless skd. j.H > j.2H can also be used as a surprise double overhead.

600 All - 14 - - - -
  • Fires a ki blast in a downward angle.

The angle isn't really great, is mostly used to combo into j.2H for knockdowns.


Special Moves[edit]

'"SCREW THIS AREA IN PARTICULAR"'
Version Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
L 1100 All - 14 5 26 -4 -
  • Explodes the ground in front of Frieza.

Frieza's main way of safely ending blockstrings.

M 1100 All - 18 5 30 -9 -
  • Explodes the ground on the other half of the screen. Doesn't reach fullscreen.

Can be used after a long-range 5H or 5S to tack on some additional damage either by itself, or can be vanished for even more damage.

H 1000*2 All - 14 9 20 -5 -
  • 2 explosions that covers the entire screen.

A good way to catch people trying to do anything.

  • Smash at point blank, the opponent will be locked inside the ball before it starts traveling, explodes once it touches the wall.
  • Cancelling the move will cause the ball to explode early.

Good as a combo ender before going into Supers.


Death Saucer[edit]

"HEY, MONKEY! YOU FORGOT YOUR PIZZAS!"
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
700*2, 700*2 All - 33 - - +2 -
  • Throws 2 discs forward that comes back after traveling off screen.
  • Discs merely launch going forward, but cause a sliding knockdown to the opponent on the way back.
  • The return trip discs can friendly fire and hit Frieza and his assists. Friendly fire discs scale less and deal more damage to Frieza than they do to the opponent (700+560 to foe and 700+630 to Frieza).
  • Can be crouched under, including L+S Ki Charge.
  • Disappear if Frieza's hit or tagged out, but not if he blocks.

Frieza is always plus after using this in a blockstring, so it's a very strong blockstring ender.


Warp Smash[edit]

  • Invulnerable from frames 4 to 19.

  • The damage buff from Golden Frieza applies to this assist as well.
  • Hits slightly closer than the M version.

Extremely annoying assist. Forces the opponent to respect you in neutral because of how huge its hitbox is.

  • The damage buff from Golden Frieza applies to this assist as well

A projectile assist that is quite fast and difficult to punish. It's really good as an approach tool, working almost like Guile walking in behind a fireball for your point. It has a lot of hitstun but not a lot of blockstun, making it bad for extended pressure but great for tickthrows and combos. Your opponent might also just respect it because it looks like it has far more blockstun than it really does.

  • Costs 1 Ki Gauge.
  • L+M version throws towards the middle of the screen, H+S version throws towards the edge of the screen.
  • Minimum damage: 4*N, 754.

A useful level 1 super that does additional damage if done from big heights. Because of how slowly the ball travels, some characters can UHC and then get an extension afterward, usually in the form of air DR or j.H.

  • Costs 3 Ki Gauges.
  • Minimum damage: 1680.

High damaging level 3. Is only one hit, which means an opponent in Sparking won't get any regeneration done during the animation, making it an excellent combo ender.

Can also be used as a reversal, though it has a tendency to go straight over the opponent in this case so this is generally not recommended.

  • Costs 3 Ki Gauges.
  • Minimum damage: 192*10.
  • Only invulnerable during active frames.

Not a good wakeup option compares to the 2 other Lv3s he has. However, the insanely high minimum damage means it's the best combo ender, used after getting hit by his own Death Saucer.


Golden Frieza[edit]
Golden Frieza
214H+S

"This may sound cheap, but I call this form Golden Frieza."
*RIDE THE FIRE blaring in the distance*
Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Invul
- - - 34+0 - - - 1-34 All

The Emperor comes to reclaim his throne. Just don't run out of time.

  • Costs 3 Ki Gauges. Can only be done once per match. Inputting 214H+S again will deactivate Golden Frieza.
  • During Golden Frieza, gains a 20% damage buff, a second air dash, access to full reverse beat, and increased movement speed.
  • Lasts about 21 seconds when he's the point character, won't deactivate until he returns to neutral ground stance. The timer is paused when he's tagged out or when he's in Sparking.
  • Raw startup is long, but autoguards and recovers instantly after the super flash. Startup during combos is fast, so you can go Golden Frieza mid-combo.
  • Has ~1 second of Ki gain cooldown.

If you're low on time and there's another character coming after a kill, you can cancel Golden Frieza during the short intermission before the fade to black and remain safe.

1200 All UDV 8+0 - - - -
  • Costs 1 Ki Gauge.
  • Minimum damage: 600.
  • Has some invulnerability and hits opponent during timestop.
  • Crumples grounded opponent, wall bounces and causes a sliding knockdown on airborne.

Does hit off sliding knockdowns but since the shot is small and goes quite high up, it requires strict timings.
