Cold (コルド, Korudo), also known as "Cold the Great King" (コルドだいおう, Korudo Daiō; Viz "King Cold"), was the patriarch of Freeza's Family, and a king in his son's army.


At some point, Cold told Freeza to never challenge Majin Boo or the Hakaishin Beerus, due to the strength they possessed.[5]


Admonishing Cold

Cold admonishes Freeza.

King Cold was extremely arrogant and egotistical about his heritage, believing that his clan was the most powerful in all of the universe.[6] He was frequently shown to be impatient, imploring Freeza to first destroy the Earth during their approach, then later when he noted that it would take Goku three hours to arrive on the planet. In the anime, he continued to badger his son to hurry up and finish Trunks.[citation needed] Like his son, Cold was threatened by the existence of Super Saiyan and insisted that they be stamped out to preserve their family's spot as the strongest in the universe. Despite this, in the anime, Cold admonished Freeza with a stern look when his son backed away fearfully from a newly transformed Trunks.

Cold was also no stranger to treachery and clearly felt no emotional attachment to his son. Despite his supposed loyalty to his son, Cold shrugged off his death and immediately invited Trunks to be his new "child", claiming that his clan was only open to the strong. In the anime, he was revealed to be quite cowardly, pleading with Trunks not to kill him by insisting that Freeza was the evil one, not himself[7]
