Cui is a minor antagonist in Dragon Ball Z being the opening antagonist of the Namek Saga. He is one of Frieza's henchmen, and his third strongest soldier, not counting the Ginyu Force or Abo and Kado. He is a purple fish-like alien who is shown to be Vegeta's rival for a time.

In Japanese, he was voiced by Koji Totani in the anime and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, Naoki Imamura in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, and Eiji Takemoto in all appearances since Dragon Ball Kai. In English, he was voiced by Bill Townsley in most appearances, with Ian James Corlett also voicing him in one of the dubs of the original anime.


Cui was extremely responsible for the invasion and destruction of the Invisible Spaceship people's home planet, nearly killing Zetian's second in command, Bon.

On Planet Frieza, Cui told Vegeta that Frieza was on Planet Namek. Shortly after Vegeta left, Cui received the order from Frieza to kill Vegeta, so he arrived on Namek to kill him. He tracked down Vegeta, who waited patiently for him. Initially Cui was equal to that of Vegeta, but after recovering from a recent battle, Vegeta was stronger than Cui, with a power level of 24 thousand. Cui tried to trick Vegeta by saying Frieza was behind him and blasted him, but Vegeta avoided the attack with his increased speed. Cui attempted to run, but Vegeta caught up to him and punched him into the air, knocking him dizzy. Vegeta then obliterated Cui’s body with a fireworks style attack, painfully killing him and ending his life.

Frieza commented on Cui's death by saying he never liked him much anyways.

Other Appearances

Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn

Cui is one of the villains who escapes from hell, but is defeated by Gohan.


Time Breaker

Time Breaker Cui

In Dragon Ball Online, Cui is aided by the Time Breakers and transformed into a much more powerful form, he is eventually defeated by the heroes.



  • At least two other Frieza soldiers of Cui's race appeared in the anime; on Planet Frieza, one of them liked the idea of Frieza being dead, and was killed on the orders of the other, who was loyal to Frieza. He was killed when the computer, trying to scan Super Saiyan Goku's power level, exploded, blowing up Planet Frieza's main building.
    • A third member appeared as a scout of Cooler, in Budokai Tenkaichi 2.
  • Cui is the only villain in the Namek Saga that had no interraction with the main heroes or any other heroic characters like the Namekians, as the only opponent he faced was Vegeta who was still a villain at the time.
  • Just like many other villains in Dragon Ball such as the Saibaimen, Dabura etc. he is used as means to show the viewers how much certain characters had improved since the last time they fought, as Cui was stated to be as strong as Vegeta was in his fight on Earth.
