All five members of the Ginyū Special Squadron wore a modified variation of the standard Fighting Jacket worn by the soldiers of Freeza's Army. Their version featured two distinct variations. In the case of the Captain Ginyū and Butta, their armor consisted of black Fighting Jackets, arm guards, leggings, and white boots. The rest of the squad wore a white version of the same Jacket, with white gloves rather than arm guards. All members of the squad bore the insignia of the Ginyū Special Squadron on the breastplate of their Jacket.[3]


Each member of the Ginyū Special Squadron possessed their own Scouter, which they use for communication and to gauge power levels.
