For years, the Dragon Ball franchise was full of villains that went on to turn into lovable heroes. We really needed someone whom we could truly hate from the bottom of our hearts. The author listened to all our prayers and brought Frieza back in Dragon Ball Super with an unexpected resurrection. Furthermore, he has grown stronger than ever after unleashing his Golden form. Now, how strong is Golden Frieza? Is he on par with the likes of Gods?
No matter how many chances you give him, Frieza will stay evil only. That’s what makes him the cruelest villain we have seen in the series so far. He despised Goku’s Super Saiyan form so much that he came up with his very own Golden transformation. Here, we bring you everything you need to know about the Golden Frieza transformation.
How Frieza Achieved His Golden Form?
Hatred kept pilling up in Frieza’s heart ever since he was sent to the afterlife by Goku. However, his resurrection gave him the perfect opportunity to seek revenge from the ‘monkey’ he despised so much. Frieza trained vigorously for months and unlocked an ultimate Golden form that no one had seen before.
Unlike his other transformations, which were meant to suppress his power, the Golden form is for powering up. And by ‘power up,’ I mean an insane boost in strength, speed, and endurance that takes him to the level of the Gods. Even Lord Beerus was impressed seeing how strong he had become within this short interval of time. I doubt if anyone else could have progressed at such an exponential rate.
Is Golden Frieza on par with the Gods?
If we use Super Saiyan God as a reference, Frieza has managed to step into the realms of the Gods. He fought toe to toe with Super Saiyan Blue Goku and even dominated the fight in the initial stage. I think he could have won the battle if it wasn’t for his Golden form’s stamina-draining limitation.
Moreover, he took care of a destruction blast from Universe 9’s Hakashin like it was some child’s play. This hints that Frieza can already be stronger than a few of the Hakashin of other universes. If he keeps progressing at this rate, Goku and Vegeta will have a serious threat to worry about.
Is Golden Frieza Stronger than Goku and Vegeta?
No, Golden Frieza is not as strong as either of the Earth’s Saiyan duo. I might have said otherwise in the Resurrection F film, where Golden Frieza seemed like a troublesome opponent against Goku. But, ever since Goku and Vegeta have unleashed their Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego, respectively, their power has reached a whole new dimension.
Goku respects strong opponents, and Frieza is no expectation. In the Freiza’s Ressurection saga, he admitted that Frieza could have killed him if he was serious. By the time Frieza was done playing around, the Golden form had drained most of the energy. Thus, Goku had no problem taking his hits, and Vegeta made a mockery out of him.
Yes, Frieza perfected his Golden form through meditation and training. With that, he can sustain his Golden form longer and has almost got rid of its stamina-draining limitation. In a fight between Goku SSB and perfected Golden Frieza, both can one-shot each other on their lucky days.
In the Tournament of Power saga, Frieza copes up with Dyspo’s insane speed. He completely dominated the fight till Dyspo resorted to his Super Speed Mode. Moments later, Frieza had enough energy to pick up a fight with Toppo, Universe 11’s second strongest warrior, just to get himself Hakai’d in the end.
Despite his Golden form, Jiren one-shotted him when he tried to punch him. Later on, he couldn’t even hold his ground against a totally exhausted Jiren. Furthermore, Broly bullied him for almost an hour in the most recent Dragon Ball Super Broly film. So, in conclusion, Golden Frieza is crazy strong; there isn’t a shred of doubt about it. But is he one of the strongest in Dragon Ball Super? No, not even close. Potent fighters like Jiren and Broly can ragdoll him like a toy. Then again, even that won’t be enough to rub off the evil smirk from his face.
