In a crossover artwork that combines the sci-fi horror series Alien with the iconic Dragon Ball villain Frieza, the latter becomes a Xenomorph.
In the new Alien crossover artwork, Frieza, the villain of Dragon Ball and the franchise’s return to the big screen, becomes a Xenomorph. Frieza, the iconic and powerful villain from the Dragon Ball series, nearly destroyed the Saiyan Race.
Frieza, the antagonist who killed Goku’s childhood friend Krillin and instigated Goku’s first Super Saiyan Transformation, was Frieza’s greatest enemy. Frieza’s four forms have increased in power with each new form.
The Alien franchise was created by Dan O’Bannon, Ronald Shussett, and Ridley Scott. In the 1979 sci-fi thriller film of the same name, the crew aboard a tug boat in space were attacked by the deadly extraterrestrial menace known as the Xenomorph.
Alien is a franchise that has video games, sequels, and an upcoming television series by Fargo creator Noah Hawley. The Xenomorph aliens, though not as popular as Dragon Ball, have been featured in a number of movies, anime, manga, short films, video games, and more.
In new crossover fan artwork from artist Jackson Caspersz, via Instagram, Frieza undergoes yet another transformation. This time, he crosses franchises. Frieza is a Xenomorph curled up from the Alien series with a sinister grin. He appears ready to strike at anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. Below is the image:
In the Dragon Ball/Alien crossover fan art, Frieza’s purple and white signature colors are seamlessly blended with the Xenomorph.
The image does not feature the bared-teeth Xenomorphs of Alien, but rather a smug anime villain. His outstretched hands add an unsettling element to the Xenomorphs’ usually more animalistic movements.
The text that appears above the fan artwork reads, “This isn’t my final form”, a phrase commonly attributed to Dragon Ball villains on the Internet.
In the 2022 Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Frieza appeared to be in good health despite having died and re-lived several times. Frieza was briefly seen in the command room of his ship and mentioned by Goku.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the most successful anime film of all time with the highest opening box office, is returning in 2023 with new episodes. Frieza will likely return to the series in some form.
