DC features a myriad of villains, each with their own unique personality and motivations. If there’s one thing they don’t lack is variety. Villains have been known to team up in the past, and it’s made for some interesting combinations and dynamics. One thing a lot of fans wonder about is how team ups between characters from different mediums would be like.
Frieza is one of anime’s most recognizable villains. If anyone would make for a great crossover team up, it’d be him. With his unique personality, it’d be tough to pull off. But there are a few pairings that would definitely work out. Here are 5 villains Frieza would team up with and 5 that he’d never help.
10 Would: Bane
Bane is one of Batman’s most recognizable villains. He might not come off as the smartest guy in the room, but his strength is undeniable, and is something someone like Frieza could definitely make use of.
Frieza would definitely hold most of the power between the two. You can expect Bane to put up a fight, but should it ever come to that, Frieza would have an overwhelming advantage. This would still make for a pretty interesting combo.
9 Wouldn’t: The Joker
The Joker is one of the most recognized comic book characters out there. There’s no doubting that this would be a popular combination, but one can’t imagine that Frieza would be very fond of the idea.
Frieza wants total subservience out of those he works with. He might get that for a time with Joker, but the clown prince’s unpredictable nature would make him too much of a wild card for Frieza to ever take seriously.
8 Would: Vandal Savage
Vandal Savage seems like just the kind of person Frieza would align himself with in hopes of furthering his own ambitions. Though he doesn’t like to cede power, Frieza could very well do that here.
Savage has the one thing Frieza wants above all else; immortality. There’s a good chance Frieza would team up with Savage to try and learn more about his unique condition.
7 Wouldn’t: The Batman Who Laughs
A lot of what was said about the Joker can be applied to The Batman Who Laughs when talking about a potential partnership with Frieza. This just doesn’t seem like a potential fit, as far as the two are concerned.
The Batman Who Laughs is pretty much a mixture of Bruce Wayne’s physical and mental abilities, paired with The Joker’s unstable mind. That makes for a dangerous combination not many would be willing to partner up with.
6 Would: Ra’s al Ghul
Ra’s al Ghul would certainly be an interesting character to pair up with Frieza, though the two would certainly have reservations about working with each other. Ultimately, should this team up happen, it wouldn’t be one built on trust.
One thing that Ra’s al Ghul has which would interest Frieza are the Lazarus Pits. With Frieza’s obsession with immortality, this seems like something that would easily draw him into a partnership with the League of Assasins head.
5 Wouldn’t: Black Adam
Frieza could handle his fair share of the DC villains out there, but in the case of Black Adam, things might go differently. Thus why he might not be so keen to team up with him.
Black Adam would be an absolute nightmare for Frieza to face. If the two did end up having a falling out, then there’s a very good chance things wouldn’t go the space tyrant’s way.
4 Would: Lex Luthor
Lex Luthor would make for an interesting team up partner for Frieza. Luthor would serve as an ideal number 2 to Frieza, as he has the intellect to be of use to him, but isn’t strong enough to seriously challenge him in battle.
Now, whether or not Luthor would put himself in that position is a different story. But you could very well see Frieza being able to “convince” him of why he should.
3 Wouldn’t: Darkseid
Darkseid is a terrifying being, and is more than a match for most DC heroes and villains. Frieza is no exception to this, and while the two might have similar ambitions, this partnership wouldn’t benefit Frieza in the slightest.
There’s no question that if the two did team up, Frieza would be the one serving Darkseid. It’s not something you can picture him doing unless he had no choice.
2 Would: Amanda Waller
Amanda Waller would make for a great right-hand to Frieza in his quest for galactic conquest. Waller is smart and cunning, and could easily be swayed by Frieza into joining his ranks.
Waller would be of great use off the battlefield, and would likely excel behind the scenes. Though, Frieza would have to keep an eye on her, just in case.
1 Wouldn’t: Brainiac
Brainiac and Frieza have somewhat similar hobbies, but the two don’t seem like they’d make for the best teammates possible. Still, it would make for a pretty interesting combination.
Brainiac’s incredible intellect would certainly make him an asset to Frieza, but there’s no chance that these two would see the other as an equal.
Frieza can be a tough personality to deal with. Here are some DC villains that he'd team up with, and some he probably wouldn't.
