|~ Guldo before attempting to kill Gohan and Krillin|
Guldo is one of the Ginyu Force who work for Frieza and a minor but dangerous antagonist in the Namek Saga. He is small, froggish and has four eyes. Unlike Recoome, Burter, Jeice and Ginyu, Guldo has no scouter. He is the weakest of the Ginyu Force, but makes up for it with his ability to freeze time (for as long as he holds his breath) and his ability to use Mind Freeze to freeze anyone with his mind.
In the Japanese version, he was voiced by Kōzō Shioya (DBZ) who also voiced Fat Buu, Good Buu and Super Buu in Dragon Ball Z, Edward Weevil in One Piece, Yabasword in Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger Ryugu Tamatebacco in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger, Yokubabanger of the Electric Shock in Tensou Sentai Goseiger, Debo Jakireen in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Yokai Daidarabotchi in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, Emperor Gore in Getter Robo, Chūtora and Jagura in Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin and Olegom in Digimon Xros Wars, and Yasuhiro Takato (DBZ Kai) in the Japanese version who also voiced Carantula in Mashin Sentai Kiramager, a Copy Org in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, Sorcery Priest Meemy in Mahou Sentai Magiranger, Tsuneki in Juken Sentai Gekiranger, Fandaho of Nonsense in Tensou Sentai Goseiger, Daiyarl in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Mushikagoloid in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, Jashinger in Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger, Demeran Yatmis, Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger, Nezu in My Hero Academia, Artemis in Sailor Moon and Tyson's Meowth in Pokémon. In the English version, he was voiced by Terry Klassen (DBZ) who also voiced, Eddy's Brother in Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy, Frix in Bucky O'Hare, Jingle in Hamtaro and Tsuky Husky in Krypto the Superdog, Bill Townsley (DBZ, FUNimation) who also voiced Elder Toguro in Yu Yu Hakusho and Cui in Dragon Ball Z, and Greg Ayres (DBZ Kai) who also voiced Monokuma in Danganronpa, Frost in Dragon Ball Super, Kaworu Nagisa in Neon Genesis Evangelion, Myouri Unzen in Medaka Box, Kouichi Sakakibara in Another, Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland, Koji Koda in My Hero Academia, Banri Watanuki in Inu x Boku SS, Kaoru Yamazaki in Welcome to the NHK, Touya in Log Horizon and Keisaku Satou in Shakugan no Shana.
Like nearly every villain in the Dragon Ball Z series, Guldo can generate ki blasts and fly. Due to being the weakest in the Ginyu Force by strength, Guldo relies mostly on his psychic abilities. His abilities include a powerful telekinesis, and the ability to literally stop time, as long as he holds his breath. Even without his powers, he is a massive threat to your average mortal and even some of the stronger races.
Guldo is stated to have a power level of 11,500. Due to the fact that Frieza expected the Ginyus to be able to fight Goku (when they teamed up with Cell in Hell), it is likely that Guldo increased to around 400,000. That said, considering that Frieza himself struggled while using less than fifty percent of his power, it's possible that Guldo surpassed his master's first three forms.
The Ginyu Force was called over to Namek by Frieza to get the Dragon Balls back from Vegeta. In the anime only, Guldo and Vegeta previously confronted each other, with Guldo belittling Vegeta saying that he and the others make the rules and that he must follow them. He continued his verbal assault, saying that he is a mere Saiyan and saying that the only reason Vegeta is even alive is because Frieza took a liking to him. While Vegeta admitted Frieza is in charge, he couldn't understand why Guldo, who is a weakling, was put on the Ginyu Force. Guldo, enraged prepared to attack Vegeta when he was stopped by Frieza. Frieza orders Vegeta to conquer a planet for him and he obeys. Vegeta laughed at Guldo's expense and went with Frieza. Being humiliated in front of Frieza, Guldo held a grudge against Vegeta ever since.
The Ginyu Force very quickly tracked down Gohan, Vegeta and Krillin. When Vegeta instructed Krillin to destroy one of the Dragon Balls, Guldo used Time Freeze to grab it from him at the last second. Ginyu declared that he'd be the one to take down Vegeta, but the Ginyu Force complained, saying that Ginyu always gets to have fun. Wanting to satisfy his comrades, he lets the four members play a game of Rock Paper Scissors. The winner would take down Vegeta while the runner-up would defeat Gohan and Krillin. Recoome ends up winning, which ticks off Guldo, as he wanted to be the one to fight Vegeta. Recoome tells Guldo to get rid of Gohan and Krillin first. Guldo, being overconfident, states that the battle will be over soon.
Guldo fought Krillin and Gohan, and despite using Time Freeze several times, was at a disadvantage and getting worn down, until he used Mind Freeze to trap them. He beat them up and pelted them with rocks, before making a giant spear out of a tree in an attempt to skewer them. However, at the last second, Vegeta intervened, cutting off Guldo's head with a single strike. Vegeta then destroyed Guldo's still-breathing head with a ki blast, settling his score with him as they had previously gotten into a fight on Planet Frieza.
After his death, Guldo appeared alongside Recoome, Burter and Jeice, when King Kai invited them over to his planet in the Other World to see if Yamcha, Tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu could defeat them. Guldo fought Chiaotzu, who soon gained the advantage and defeated Guldo by sending him flying through the clouds and into the depths of Hell.
Other World Tournament Saga
In the Other World Tournament Saga, Guldo appeared alongside Cell, Frieza, King Cold, Recoome, Burter and Jeice, and caused trouble in Hell with them, but when Frieza sent the Ginyu Force after Goku, who came with Pikkon to stop them, Goku defeated Guldo with an elbow to the face, causing him to fall into the Bloody Pond with the others. Later, Pikkon threw Guldo, along with Recoome, Burter, Jeice and Cell into a set of spikes, and all seven villains were locked up in a cell. Guldo, like the others, expresses annoyance towards Recoome for suggesting that they arm-wrestle.
Kid Buu Saga
Guldo's final appearances were in Hell alongside several dead villains, watching Goku's fight with Kid Buu during the Kid Buu Saga. As with the other villains, he rooted for Buu.
