The Worst! The Most Evil! Lord Frieza!
Let me tell you something; I love villains who’re the catalysis of their series, like Lord Frieza of Dragon Ball Z. Frieza man, he was the direct cause Goku’s grand expanding adventure. If it wasn’t for Frieza aligning and betraying the Saiyans, Goku would had never been sent to Earth to conquer it (which of course he never did). To say that the Dragon Ball series would had been different would be an unbelievable understatement.
There wouldn’t be anyone to stop the Red Ribbion Army’s ambition of world domination. Goku and Piccolo Jr. wouldn’t had their epic match at the Tenkaichi Budokai. Cell wouldn’t had been created (as Cell had both Goku and Frieza’s DNA). Beerus would had never gone to Earth to search for the Super Saiyan God. The list can keep going on how much things would had been different if Frieza wasn’t around.
Frieza is the key of the almost everything that went down in the series.
Besides his domino effect on the series, what makes Frieza perhaps one of the best anieme antagonist, or at the very least the best villain in the DB series, is his psychotic, sadistic nature and his pure evilness.
I mean, Frieza does not give a literal fuck. He has no conscious about his ill, brutal actions. Torturing helpless children to death or blowing them up. Killing surrendering men as they beg for their life while in tears. Laughing in joy in the destruction he causes throughout the universe. He has no care about anything he does. He simply loves what he does best – killing and causing pain.
In fact, using pain, as well as fear, torture, murder, and destruction is how he build his empire. There (for the most part) are no negotiations or win-win with him; It’s either you work for him, reign over your planet, or he’s gonna kill you, the planet’s entire population, and reign over it.
Regardless, he’s getting what he desires.
Frieza – you’re truly the worst.
‘Unresisting, the people run and hide
Even those who bow to him are burnt to cinders
Genocide, armed oppression
The dictator laughs as he tramples them’
