Dragon Ball Z Revival of F: Is Golden Frieza More Powerful Than Beerus?

By Jeremy Carden


What would happen if the God of Destruction fought against the Emperor of the Universe?

This is one question that has been asked by many fans since Frieza returned from the grave!

In Revival of F, Frieza comes back to get revenge on the Saiyans who defeated him in the past. After 4 months of training, the tyrant reaches a new power that he feels is more than enough to bury Goku and his friends for good.


According to his Japanese voice actor, Frieza’s power is clocked at 100 quintillion in his Golden Form. Most fans do not take this number to heart because this is a voice actor’s words, and not the “official” words of Akira Toriyama.

In any case, we do know that Golden Frieza is not an opponent to take lightly. However, how does his new power stack up to Beerus?

In Battle of Gods, it is mentioned that Beerus was not a fan of Frieza’s self-entitled attitude. Beerus even says that he would destroy Frieza the next time they crossed paths.

That one moment during the movie was something that caught the attention of fans because it hinted at a possible encounter between Beerus and Frieza (despite the fact that he was dead at the time).

In order to figure out if Golden Frieza could defeat Beerus, it is essential to look at his battles against Goku and Vegeta.

At the level of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, Goku and Vegeta are said to be more powerful than Beerus (at 70% power). Whis says that if the 2 Saiyans were to fight Beerus as a team, they could potentially defeat the God of Destruction.


Golden Frieza was shown to be more powerful than an individual Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Goku even states that he was losing his battle with Frieza. He was not able to start gaining the upper hand in the fight until Frieza’s power began to drop.

So, we do know that in terms of raw power; Frieza is more powerful than the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans.


Just like his 100% form on Namek, Frieza’s strength is not fully under his control. Due to this flaw, his power level begins to drop the longer he is battling at his peak power.


This confirms that Golden Frieza is at least more powerful than Beerus at 70% of his maximum power.

Does this mean that Golden Frieza could defeat Beerus if he was at his maximum power?

In my opinion, I do not think that Frieza could defeat Beerus.

Even though 4 months of training was enough to bring Frieza’s abilities to combat the Saiyans, I do not think it was enough to take on Beerus.


The Super Saiyan God form is very similar to Golden Frieza. Remember that Goku was only fighting at 80% power during his battle with Beerus. Right when he was about to ramp it up to 100%, the time limit on the Super Saiyan God power ran out.

When you look at it from that perspective, Super Saiyan God has the obvious flaw of having a time limit, and that can cause the user to be left in a life-threatening situation.

After mastering the form by training under Whis, Goku and Vegeta were able to take it to the next level as Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans.


This is similar to Gohan and Goku mastering the regular Super Saiyan form, and becoming Full Power Super Saiyans during their training in the Time Chamber.


Without the handicap of a time limit to slow him down, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku was able to fight with a power that surpassed Super Saiyan God Goku.

I think that if Frieza had taken time to master his new Golden Form, he could have reached a power that did not have a severe handicap just like Goku and Vegeta were able to acquire.


Keep in mind that mastery over his Golden Form could have resulted in a new transformation! Remember that his older brother (Cooler) was able to master his true form (or 4th form depending on how you look at it), and from there unlocked an entirely new form.


As Vegeta pointed out, Frieza should have mastered his new Golden Form prior to coming to earth for revenge. Perhaps things would have turned out differently for him if he had taken that advice.

If Frieza had actually mastered his Golden Form, then I think he might have been able to surpass even the power of Beerus.


It is a scary realization to say that in only 4 months, Frieza was able to pass by the power of the Super Saiyan Gods! I mean Goku and Vegeta are the best of the best, but Frieza had them beat.

Even though I loved seeing Vegeta beat the crap out of Frieza, I was a bit disappointed that the main reason he was able to do so was because of Frieza’s power dropping during his fight with Goku.

Golden Frieza noticed that Beerus was on earth during his fight with Goku, and the tyrant’s face was covered in fear! Now if he had mastered that Golden Form, then perhaps he would have challenged Beerus after killing the Saiyans.


Another thing to take into consideration is Frieza’s skill. It is true that his power is incredible, but he lacks the training of superior mentors to add more moves to his already deadly arsenal. Goku has had a lot of mentors during his lifetime, Vegeta’s first true master is Whis, and Beerus trained with Whis as well.

Whis points out that Beerus still has his own flaws to overcome to become a perfect warrior. He has pride just like the Saiyans, and his anger gets the better of him. However, I think his skill surpasses Frieza’s in the long run.

What do you think of my theory on this battle between destroyers? Do you feel that Frieza does have the power in Golden Form to surpass the power of Beerus?

    If I take Akira’s words into consideration:

    God Goku is a 6, Beerus is a 10, Whis is a 15

    God Goku’s time expired and he reverted back to base but was just slightly less strong … let’s say 5? Or maybe he would still be a 6.

    When he turns God SS I would suggest it’s a 7,5 (since he’s stronger than 70% Beerus) and the comparison to Full Power Super Sayian during the Cell Saga is on point.

    Freezer is only still stronger = 8? But no way it’s nowhere near 10. If Frieza tried to train up he could indeed become a 9 or 10 so it would be a just perfect match vor Beerus. Who’d win?

  2. Yeah, Freeza is no where near Beerus’ power as he was defeated by Goku whom is also weaker than Beerus, even as a SSJGSSJ. Freeza needed the help of Sorbet to best Goku in their fight anyway, so Freeza’s golden from is no where near Beerus’ threshold.

    • smillan53 says:

      Didn’t you read? Golden freiza is stronger than ssjgodss, meaning he’s very close to beerus.

      They also said if he mastered that form, he might have beaten goku and vegeta, and challenged beerus himself.

      Golden freiza is 3rd on the strongest characters in all of dragon ball Z.

    Watch this space… not long from now Beerus and Whis will be far surpassed by Goku’s powers as what have happened to the likes of Buu. Goku’s potential is “INFINITE” whereas Beerus and Whis is “finite” albeit extremely high level.

    • dujuan says:

      nope goku has potential but infinite or not beerus is a god who knows what whis might be and a gods power far surpasses a mortal who was defeated so easily wjen he was given the power of a god.he knows he cant surpass beerus he’s afraid to fight him again

    Frieza covered in 4 months what the Saiyans took many years to accomplish. I’d say with another 4 months practicing in Golden form he’d beat with Goku/Vegeta. That said they may find another level during the ensuing battle etc. etc. We haven’t seen Beerus truly pushed but that would be a good one to watch.

    However Frieza always seems to have a stamina issue – if this is something he could sort by training, which it is suggested he could, then he’s more or less unstoppable. Perhaps this is why it was written into the story, to keep you guessing!

    What I want to know is what is the point in divine ki if Golden Frieza, who is using ‘standard’ ki, can effectively out match a SSGSS Goku using divine ki? I mean if divine ki is just more effective ‘fuel’ than normal ki and increases power like that then what was the point in giving Goku and Vegeta divine ki when it was fine for Frieza to be that powerful using normal ki who gained all that power in just 4 months?

  6. CyberPaddy says:

    When freezer got the love of many men is power is incrased to big leverls so he can beat goku an gergeta an bills in no time (they will be bent inhalf in is bed later beggin him for the mercy). freezer gets is power from his many men that is why he is surounded by the men. if goku an vegeta had that many men they migt stand a chance.

  7. DinaricGoku says:

    Super Saiyan God Goku mode looks stupid. It should be mystic white/gray and white eys. That makes more sense and is God-like.

    the new Fieza saga makes zero sense. 4 months training? & He’s near Gods and much stronger than buu ever was? Lol. The Beerus God saga is cool though. Beerus should be able to beat Frieza with one pinky, regardless of 4 months training and a lame Golden form.

  8. TNTDiscoCisco says:

    Dude, in Battle of the Gods, it is stated by Beers himself that Goku and his new super saiyan god form made him use 70% of his power. Now, clearly we see that Goku and Vegeta have already surpassed that level in their new Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan forms, making them stronger than Beerus in 70%, although how much the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan power level is equal to Beerus’ own is never stated. Now, Frieza clearly has the upper hand in the beginning against SSGSS Goku, who already had a significant increase since the last time he fought Beerus. Although Frieza by far is my favorite villain due to his power, his voice (at least in DBZ Kai, seriously, I don’t know what anyone sees in Linda Young. No offense to Linda Young in any sort of way, but she made Frieza sound like a raspy old woman, and the fact that he had really weird lips and other factors makes him seem like he’s a girl. Just Saiyan!!!!!!), the fact he is quite possibly one of the only DBZ villains to use his own power instead of taking it from others, I think that Frieza would be on par and having the upper hand against Beers, but would ultimately lose because of the same reason he lost against Goku and Vegeta.

    Dragon Ball Revival of F and Dragon Ball Super’s fight against Freiza is just truly dumb. The logic of Dragon Ball went out the window with that Revival of F movie. Freiza trains for 4 months, beating one of his henchmen over and over. A weak subordinate; nothing special. Freiza then takes on SSJ God Goku, and kicked his ass. Freiza’s 4 months surpassed Goku’s years of training, and also surpassed Goku’s God training. So I ask myself, why did Goku take God training? To beat Beeurus, all Goku had to do is train a bit more. The fact that Freiza was trouble for Goku, means that Gods are nothing special, and you don’t need to be a God to beat a God. God training was supposed to move Goku and Vegeta from the normal Caliber to a more superior one. For Freiza to have beat Goku that much, he would need to take God training and achieve God KI, also he would need to train for about 8 to 10 years. If you watch Dragon Ball Z all over, and watch Super, you get confused because all the characters just got weaker than the Namek Saga. Tagoma is said to have power that Rivals Zarbon and Dodoria, and Tagoma can beat Piccolo, who should have power that is about equal to SSJ 2. No real thought went into Dragon Ball Super. There are plot holes. There is a point where Freiza tells Goku that he could sense his power, that is why he knows that Goku can’t beat him. Go check it out Fans, I urge you to listen.

    Freiza should not be able to sense God Ki, because he is not a God. The Heart of Dragon Ball is gone. Akira is old, and should hand it over. He did a respectful piece with Z. Oh lets not forget, that guns can now harm our Heroes. I remember Cell being blown up by the Military. He used no Aura to protect himself. When Sorbet shot Goku, the ray/beam should have bounced off like nothing. Man I can go on and on. Dragon Ball just turned to Shit for me. At least I have the Guts to say it.

    • Jerry says:

      I completely agree. It’s kind of a shot to the face for fans of DBZ. Training or not, goku and vegeta should not be the only capable fighters against freezas army. If anything, SSJ3 goku should have been the only necessity to take on freeza. I believe freeza should have been accompanied some how by a new enemy that would push some limits but that is all.

  10. Ritesh Kumar says:

    If Goku can take Freeza’s final form without being super saiyan, then Freeza’s Golden form must be beaten by Golu’s super saiyan only. No need of SSJ GOD.

  11. Fredrick Conner says:

    It’s a testament to Freiza’s previously ambiguous potential. It stands to reason that he had never trained before, except for some sparring with Cooler over the years. The Frieza family were always the antagonists in space, never having to fight for their lives. If Frieza were a good guy, his potential would be unrivaled. And he just looks so cool.
