15The Ginyu Force
We know we’re cheating a little bit with this one, but how do you include one of the Ginyu Force without the other members of the team? Captain Ginyu, Burter, Jeice, Recoome, and Guldo make up this quintuplet, who provide some much needed light relief in a saga jam-packed with
high tension and genuine drama. Their flamboyant dance moves render the great Lord Frieza temporarily stunned, while their inter-team banter makes for plenty of laughs when directly compared to Vegeta and the others.
However, it’s not all fun and games where the Ginyus are concerned. They are known throughout the galaxy as Frieza’s most powerful soldiers, and they employ a deadly set of powers during their time on Namek. Recoome alone makes light work of Gohan, Krillin, and Vegeta (the latter in a thoroughly enjoyable battle of wits), while Ginyu’s ability to swap bodies and Guldo’s time-stop technique were entirely unique at the time.
