History[edit | edit source]

Bitterly Bothered Brother[edit | edit source]

In the chapter 1 flashback, Cooler and his family were staying on a grassy planet. Cooler trained on the planet, honing his power level sensing abilities by chasing bugs with his eyes closed. Early in this story, Frieza confronted his brother. Cooler soon revealed that King Cold was going to give him the planet when he grew a bit older, making it his first planet. Frieza was angered by this, for he thought he was stronger than Cooler (and thus deserved a planet before his brother). Cooler disagreed, noting that he was the older brother and that getting the first planet was his birthright. This conversation soon turned into a fight; during the struggle, Cooler nearly killed Frieza when he started to choke his younger brother, but he let up just before Frieza died, knowing that his father would not be happy with Cooler killing his brother. Then, Cooler returned to his father's outpost alone.

Scelerat[edit | edit source]

In this story, Cooler was training to become stronger. He was paranoid about his legacy - Cooler believed that the universe would only remember him if he became the strongest warrior in the universe. So he trained. Near the beginning of this story, Cooler could start to feel himself reaching a new transformation. As he trained, Cooler thought back to how disgusted he was with how pompous and arrogant his father and brother had been acting, so he wanted to put a stop to that to restore the honor of his family.

After an intense training session, Cooler woke up to find that he had unlocked his species' fifth form. He was shocked and elated, but determined too. Cooler, now with a huge boost in power, set off to a feast his brother and father were holding. His goal was to kill Frieza (and perhaps his father) and make himself the emperor of the entire universe to restore honor to his family's name and find some glory for himself.

When he arrived on the planet, Cooler was met by his father, so he told King Cold what he planned on doing to Frieza. King Cold was outraged. He transformed into the fifth form himself, revealing to Cooler that he knew the form all along and was strong enough to kill his son if he wanted to. Cooler was shocked and unable to push past his father. Dejected, he left the planet, refusing to attend the feast. He thought he had finally found his identity with unlocking the new transformation, but seeing that his father also possessed the form made Cooler become depressed. He resolved to become even stronger to take out his father and make a better name for himself, but it did not seem like even Cooler believed what he thought.

Memories of a Bloodless Thrall[edit | edit source]

In the third scene of this story, Naemi remembered when Mar Tulvith, the 64th Crimson Emperor, had summoned her to prevent Cooler and the Planet Trade Organization from enslaving the Cyrens. Cooler, escorted by his guards, walked up to Mar Tulvith and punched him in the face, killing him instantly. She attacked Cooler, but he put up a good fight. She wasn't able to land a blow. Eventually, he shot an energy beam at her that wrapped around her body and shot her from the surface of Cyren into space. She came out of her memories in that instant, using an explosive wave to shatter Cooler's energy blast. Naemi found herself drifting through space. She could not sense Cyren nearby, although she was approaching an alien world. In cold resignation, she reflected that she was no longer Ahjivash and that the Crimson Empire had fallen to Cooler. She did not know how he could be so strong. She was happy to be alive, at least.

Superior[edit | edit source]

In this story, Salza, Ginyu, and the Ginyu Force traveled to Planet Cooler 029 in order for Salza and Ginyu to compete to become the new captain of Cooler's Armored Squadron. Cooler judged the contest himself. He mentioned that Salza wanted to be the leader of his Armored Squadron. In order for him to ascend to that rank, he would have to beat Ginyu in a series of tests. Ginyu was not concerned. He thought it would be an easy fight. Salza thought so too; he told his foe that his power level was higher. Ginyu doubted that.

Cooler walked over to a tree, plucked two space coconuts from it, and handed each of them one. Then, he told them that whoever threw theirs farther would become his new captain. Ginyu liked Cooler's creativity, while Salza was baffled that this was his test. After powering up to their full strengths, they threw their coconuts. It was unclear who won that contest. Before declaring a winner, Cooler demanded that they draw a picture of his face in the sand. Ginyu drew his with his toe, while Salza burned a glass picture into the sand with a finger beam. Cooler once more did not indicate who had won, though Salza thought that Ginyu's drawing was indisputably better.

Then, Cooler ordered them to jump into the ocean. Whoever held their breath the longest would win. If either one of them cheated, he promised to personally execute them. Loyally, the two dove into the water without wasting time. A few minutes later, Salza came back up, holding the unconscious Ginyu. Cooler congratulated him, and called both Frieza and Ginyu fools. He told Salza to follow him, as he wanted to introduce his new captain to the other members of the Armored Squadron. Cooler air dashed into the sky, and Salza followed him.

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Planet Trade Organization[edit | edit source]

Volume I[edit | edit source]

Dragon Ball Z: The Forgotten[edit | edit source]

Cooler like his brother Frieza was a tyrant who ruled over a section of the galaxy. However, Cooler's empire was more vast and sophisticated than Frieza's ever was. While he did destroy many planets, Cooler also had the foresight to leave some to gain resources/soldiers from and govern. This was something which he did not want to do personally.

Cooler instead appointed hundreds of governors to preside over each his of various planets. Guva was one such governor.

Lauto Saga[edit | edit source]

Cooler was not particularly involved in the specific aspects of each of his governors' business. He didn't care about having a Saiyan on one of his planets. So when Guva brought it to his attention, Cooler simply told the governor to do whatever he wanted with him.

Volume II[edit | edit source]

Dragon Ball Z: The Forgotten[edit | edit source]

Stomping Grounds Saga[edit | edit source]

As the rebellion was growing more fierce, Cooler set up a council to interrogate and destroy any known traitors. When Ledas was brought to the Stomping Grounds to be interrogated, Cooler was going to sit in on his trial. Cooler was late, and arrived to a partially destroyed building with an escaped rebel. Understandably, he was angry. He then pursued Ledas by himself. He found Ledas on the Stomping Grounds, attempting to find a ship to escape. Cooler then engaged the Saiyan. Ledas refused to acknowledge he was a rebel, so Cooler was forced to kill him with a Supernova. While this attack wasn't actually successful, Cooler believed it was.

Cooler later appeared twenty-one years later. As Ledas was wreaking havoc on the Stomping Grounds, he called a meeting with all of his governors and top generals. In that meeting, he revealed knowledge that his brother Frieza was dead. He also revealed that he was going to Earth in order to seek revenge. Soon after, he became aware that someone was destroying all forces on his Stomping Grounds. Angrily, he prepared to destroy the planet. He sent a governor to the planet in order to rescue Digranite before he destroyed the planet. Then, he destroyed the planet.

While Cooler was never seen again in The Forgotten, he was referenced one more time in his canon trip to Earth by Guva in his Stomping Grounds Saga finale monologue.
