Cooler (クウラ , Kūra , lit. “Coola”) is the titular main antagonist in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler”s Revenge and an emulation of him acts as the main antagonist in Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler. He is the older brother of Frieza and the elder son of King Cold. Like his brother, he can push his body through transformations. Also, like Frieza, Cooler possesses a biomechanical incarnation, but this is gained from merging with the Big Gete Star.

Creation and Concept
Cooler concept art drawn by Akira Toriyama
Cooler and his Armored Squadron were designed by Akira Toriyama, the original manga author, for Toei”s theatrical production (and later adapted as needed for future appearances).
Cooler”s appearance in his base form is similar to that of Frieza”s Final Form, though Cooler”s skin is deep-purple as opposed to the pure white of his brother. Cooler is also much taller than Frieza, being similar in height to Goku. Along with this, Cooler has a distinctively more masculine appearance than that of Frieza, who is more lean-built (excluding the engorged muscle mass when at 100% full power). Cooler also sports several armor-like carapaces on his chest, shoulders, shins, and head; these are apparently natural given how they too change when he transforms.
When he transforms to his true form, however, his body undergoes great changes as opposed to his base form: his chest and muscle-mass have expanded greatly, to a degree similar to that of Frieza”s Second Form. His white carapace also changes, with the breast-plates shoulder pads becoming hoop-like in shape, becoming something like white “handles”, while the white carapaces on his wrists change drastically, gaining dark-blue sections and developing blade-like protrusions. The tip of his tail gains a white pointed stinger-like carapace as well. However, the most distinguishing characteristic in this form is, perhaps, the change in the carapace Cooler has on his head, which in this form completely encases his entire head except for his eyes, his mouth being covered behind something reminiscent of a visor, four spikes extend from his cranium and there is a large dark-blue section in the middle of his head.
Cooler taunts Goku
Cooler”s personality is quite similar to that of his younger brother and his father, though with a few noticeable differences. Like Frieza, Cooler handles problems in an intellectual and serious manner. Though, unlike his brother, Cooler is not consumed by his ego and is less likely to underestimate his opponents, as seen when he acknowledged that Goku was still alive despite taking a direct hit from his Darkness Eye Beam, due to the latter managing to utilize a counterattack against him, and thus ordered his subordinates to search for and kill him, and in the English dub also deliberately refuses to use the easy solution of ensuring Goku”s death by blowing up the Earth specifically in order to make sure he had confirmed Goku”s death with his own eyes despite his preference of blowing it up. Even when they had demolished a large portion of the surrounding environment with continuous barrages of energy blasts, he insisted that they continue their pursuit. Likewise, he does not get overly proud of accomplishments that require little effort as he found Frieza”s gloating at destroying Planet Vegeta so childish. Cooler is also apparently more positively inclined and respectful towards his subordinates than his brother and father, as he has never once been seen abusing, ridiculing, executing them or anything of the sort. He also offers to take on opponents who outmatch them personally, which likely contributes to their undivided loyalty and respect for him. He even seems to be inclined to take his subordinates” advice. However, Cooler still underestimated his opponent, as by allowing Goku”s space pod to escape instead of following his subordinates” suggestion of shooting it down, he was paving his own downfall years later when Goku defeated him. Cooler himself lamented that when he looked down on Frieza for being soft that day, he himself was no better for not shooting down Goku”s pod.
Despite these honorable qualities, Cooler is a ruthless killer, even by his own admission. While he does not appear to relish in the agony and despair of his opponents like his brother does, he is willing to attack children, ambush enemies from behind and inflicting great harm upon an already incapacitated opponent without a second thought. Upon entering his final form, Cooler displays a personality similar to the one shown by his younger brother in his second form, though not quite as pronounced: Cooler becomes exceedingly more brutal in his efforts to kill Goku. Other similarities he has with Frieza is that he is completely assured of his own superiority over his opponents, and his ego is also quite pronounced as he denotes himself as the “supreme master of the universe”. After merging with the Big Gete Star, Cooler also ends up ironically adopting some of his brother”s traits such as his sadism (as especially evident by his referring to Goku and Vegeta”s agony from being drained as “absolutely exquisite” and laughing maniacally) and his knack for underestimating foes (as especially evident by his boasting that Goku can”t win against him in his ultimate form and ignoring Vegeta until it was too late).
Ghost Warrior Cooler in Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans with incorrectly colored wrist carapaces
With regards to his relationship with his family, Cooler appears to have had a simple sibling rivalry with Frieza, labeling him as arrogant, foolish, a spoiled brat and a pest, and even goes as far as to admit that if Goku had not killed Frieza, he himself would have done so. He also says that Frieza was the “favored” one in regards to their parents. In Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, however, Cooler and Frieza appear to be more than capable of working together to defeat a common foe, though this is likely due to the both of them having been defeated by Saiyans and their subsequent desire for revenge. Cooler is never shown with King Cold, but dialogue implies that he holds the same lack of respect for his father as Frieza did. Cooler appears to not care for his father, as upon Cold trying to get help from him in the Prison Planet Saga, Cooler proceeds to kill him. In Cooler”s only interaction with Cold in Supersonic Warriors 2, he opposes him. In Cooler”s ending in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai – Another Road, Cooler, and Frieza are shown to have a good relationship, as they plan to destroy the Saiyans together, and the two compliment each other at several points.
In Frieza”s arcade mode in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Frieza mentions that Cooler believes that violence is the answer to almost anything, something which Frieza disagrees with. Cooler also has a certain sense of pride and lust for battle as he took Videl hostage, then quickly releases her after present Gohan agrees to have a one-on-one match.
In the Xenoverse series, while his sibling rivalry with Frieza is still present, he is willing to begrudgingly work with him to defeat the Saiyans and even travels to Dying Namek to aid his brother against Super Saiyan Goku in Age 762 after having been transported there by Towa, whom Cooler notes to Frieza when he asks why he is on Namek that he might as well repay his debt to her by killing Goku before asking himself why he should be explaining any of it to his brother. This shows that Cooler is able to feel gratitude to those who assist him like Towa did and even possesses a sense of honor when it comes to those who assist him in such a manner (though admittedly he had his own reasons for killing Goku for tarnishing his family”s name by defeating Frieza which he himself planned to erase from history by killing him in Age 762, only to be defeated by the 2nd Future Warrior). In one parallel quest, he reveals the only reason he did not kill his brother was out of familial respect though he himself has no real qualms about committing fratricide demonstrating the same lack of caring for blood kin as his Frieza demonstrated (Frieza did not want to revive Cold and did not care if his father or brother”s souls were erased when Roh pointed out his family and/or loved ones would be erased with Universe 7 if he betrayed them for Universe 9 with Frieza coldly acting unconcerned by and even confused by his remarks as Frieza himself had no loved ones but himself).
However during the main story Cooler does note that it doesn”t hurt to act like a big brother every now and then when helping Frieza on Namek, showing that he understands how an elder sibling should act (by protecting and guiding their younger siblings when they need help or guidance) while Frieza fails to even look up to his elder brother (Frieza himself despises Cooler due to what he perceives as his perfectionism due to the latter”s tendency to criticize Frieza for his failures even if it were to Frieza”s benefit to actually listen to Cooler). Cooler still has no qualms about killing his own family as he states his intention to kill Frieza and his father to the Future Warrior when they train under him in Xenoverse 2. However he does spare Frieza after defeating him in the Frieza”s Spaceship time rift anomaly if the Future Warrior joins the Cooler Force (Cooler”s faction within the Galactic Frieza Army) and leaves the Frieza Force (Frieza”s faction) under the Future Warrior”s control to do as they see fit, having earned his complete trust for their assistance in aiding him in becoming Emperor of Universe 7. These acts show that he is willing to reward such loyalty (even offering to allow the Future Warrior to reestablish their race if they are a Saiyan).
