reliefs suffered some pretty serious losses in both seven dragon pearls And Super Dragon Balleach time by the hand of his most hated opponent, goku–although while those losses were heavy, Frieza’s most devastating loss to Goku was actually in Dragon Ball GT.
In Dragon Ball Z, Frieza first encounters Goku on Planet Namek when the evil emperor tries to find the Dragon Balls of that world to use their wish-granting magic to make himself immortal. . However, Frieza doesn’t count on someone as powerful as Goku to be there to stop him from accomplishing his evil goal. The two fought what would become the most iconic battle in Dragon Ball history, and in the end, Frieza was completely defeated with an incredibly powerful final blast from Goku. Skip to Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ (which takes place in the Dragon Ball Super continuum), and Frieza has returned from the grave to fight Goku again. While Frieza initially had the upper hand in this fight, Goku ultimately ended it all by destroying Frieza with every bit of energy he had. In short, Frieza was completely annihilated in both cases, but nothing can beat the way Goku beat him in GT.
Goku not only defeated Frieza in GT but also humiliated him
In Dragon Ball GT episode 43 (written by Atsushi Maekawa, directed by Osamu Kasai, produced by Toei Animation), Goku was tricked into hell after being told that if he didn’t do so, Frieza and Cell would return hell. Earth and use their synergy to destroy the planet. So Goku went to hell to face them, as it was a safe distance from the world he called home. Unfortunately, this left him stranded there – though Goku is still happy to face off against two of his most iconic villains while he manages to escape. While they converged on Goku together, the Saiyan warrior found a way to fight one by one, to fully enjoy the battles at hand. When it was time for Goku to fight Frieza one-on-one, Frieza launched his Disc of Destruction towards Goku just like when they first fought on Namek–and just like in Namek, Goku caused Frieza to cut himself in half. by his own attack.
Not only does Goku defeat Frieza in this episode, but he does it exactly the same way he did before – which puts Frieza in great shame on several levels. Frieza thinks he is smarter and stronger than any opponent imaginable, including and especially the Saiyans. Losing to a Saiyan once is a shame, but being defeated in exactly the same way is pathetic, and it proves that Frieza is a total fraud. When defeated again by Goku in this way, Frieza essentially proves that he is not smarter or stronger than this opponent, but is instead a weak idiot who refuses to learn from his opponents. failed in the past and lived in illusions. of his own imagined greatness.
While Frieza has made up for this shortcoming in Super’s current continuity, as he has unlocked a new form and power level more powerful than anything fans have seen before, but his current achievements don’t erase his past failures – and in Dragon Ball GT, that failure is a brutal one, as reliefs lost goku worse than both seven dragon pearls And Super Dragon Ball.
