Overview

The emperor is here! Frieza joins the Game again in the first of his many forms, representing the moment that arguably describes him best, the Saiyan Genocide. In fact, his Legendary Finisher shows that Frieza is ruthless and eager to make all Fighters feel the same experience as poor Bardock and his comrades.

Unexpectedly, this version of Frieza does not have a completely Offensive toolkit with many Anti-Saiyan facets, rather he boasts an almost completely Supportive toolkit, which is punctuated by an Offensive note, his iconic Ultimate Move.

Frieza even contributes to his Team's bulk with self-Healing and Sustained Damage Cut - he is a very well-rounded emperor. 

Strengths

Fight and Die For Me!

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR’s main strength is making his allies better, and he does a great job at it; he Buffs their Offenses with +30 Ki Restoration when switching to standby. His Extra Arts Card can also reduce their Substitution Counts by 3, which keeps the tyrant's Team's tempo high. 

The most impactful Support he provides comes courtesy of Buffs, +25% Inflicted Damage and a +50% Ki Recovery, that apply at the start of battle and only dissipate when the racist emperor falls. In Crisis scenarios, these Buffs allow Frieza to hold his own, becoming his own pillar of Support.

Don't You Dare Touch Me

This Fighter has a rather interesting set of Defensive Abilities. His Cover Change Effect that counters Strike Attacks isn’t hard to pull off and it can be followed with either a Special or an Extra Move, with the latter being the most destructive option. 

Secondly, while his permanent +35% Sustained Damage Cut that he grants himself when switching to standby and his marginal +10% Self-Healing per switch aren’t enough to make him a dedicated Defensive Fighter, they’re nice additions that help him stay alive in the Match long enough to showcase most of his tricks.

They also contribute to his strength in Crisis scenarios, where he has both a constant Damage Buff and Sustained Damage Cut. He is a rather tricky Fighter to keep down. 

Supernova

Few Supporting Fighters have an Offensive Burst comparable to this Fighter’s Ultimate Move, which possesses Blast Armor and will consistently inflict devastating Damage. The best part of Frieza’s most glorious attack is that it ignores Sustained Damage Cut, something that plenty of Meta Fighters have.

Using it in combination with this Fighter’s Extra move is generally the best way to ensure it finds its mark. The Arts Card itself Buffs its Damage by nearly 100% when every modifier Buff is applied at once. Against Saiyan foes it deals even more Damage, ensuring that the targets of his ire will not survive his onslaught. 

Weaknesses

Weak Punch

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR doesn’t have too much to offer Offensively aside from his Ultimate Arts. In fact, his only Offensive Buffs come from his Team Support and he’s less than stellar in Last Man Standing situations, at which point his Debuffs can no longer be applied.

Crowded Spot

As he's a Purple Fighter, SP 1st Form Frieza PUR has to directly compete with SP Coora PUR for a spot on the Lineage of Evil Team Core. Cooler is still generally considered a Top Tier Fighter with very good Offensive and Defensive capabilities; he is only held back by his lackluster Team quality.

With Cooler occupying Lineage of Evil's Purple spot, it’s really difficult for the new Frieza to directly replace him. They can be played together, but that would only be optimal in specific situations where it’s safe to play two Purple Fighters. For this reason, SP 1st Form Frieza PUR’s usefulness is limited.

Team Synergy

Lineage of Evil

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR’s place in this Team is kind of up in the air. While his toolkit works really well with his Lineage of Evil Teammates, it’s hard to make him co-exist with SP Coora PUR.

Since Cooler is arguably better, the best choice here is probably to keep him on the bench and only use him together with SP Coora PUR when the foe's Core lacks a deadly Yellow Fighter.

Cooler and Frieza can work together in a Color Counter Team composition with SP Final Form Frieza RED, though this is not necessarily optimal for Lineage of Evil.

SP Full Power Frieza YEL ameliorates this Tag's Defensive issues and can deal an incredible amount of Damage with the extra Special Moves his First Form counterpart provides. 

Frieza Force

In a Team that could be described as an alternative to Lineage of Evil;  SP 1st Form Frieza PUR shines on this Tag, which gives him many lackeys to command.

Frieza perfectly protects the Tag's Defensive brute, EX Recoome BLU, and is in turn protected from enemy Yellow Fighters by SP Final Form Frieza RED. EX Burter YEL, EX Jeice RED, and SP Final Form Frieza YEL are all fantastic options.
