Also Known As:

  • Captain Ginyu

Captain Ginyu is the leading member of an elite mercenary platoon, the eponymous Ginyu Force. His name is a pun on gyuunyuu (牛乳), the Japanese word for dairy milk. Captain Ginyu is shown to care deeply about his teammates, becoming incredibly furious when learning from Jeice that his three other subordinates were defeated and killed. However, he also can be quite harsh to his team members if they fail a mission, as shown when he harshly scolds Jeice for letting Burter and Recoome lose to Goku and running away from the fight. He is also shown to be very loyal to Frieza, and follows any order Frieza gives him. During his battle with Goku, Frieza stated that he did not think anyone in the universe had surpassed Ginyu. Only a few people have seen Ginyu's true form, and Salza is among them. Salza had to fight Ginyu to become leader of Cooler's Armored Squadron.
