The original Dragon Ball manga, written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1984 to 1995. The 519 individual chapters were then collected into 42 standalone volumes by its publisher, Shueisha. Dragon Ball was initially inspired by the classical Chinese novel Journey to the West. The series follows the adventures of the protagonist, Goku, from his childhood through adulthood as he trains in martial arts and explores the world in search of the seven orbs known as the Dragon Balls, which summon a wish-granting dragon when gathered. Along his journey, Goku makes several friends and battles a wide variety of villains, many of whom also seek the Dragon Balls.

According to Akira Toriyama, Frieza's design is an amalgamation of what he thought monsters looked like in his childhood. Frieza is one of the villains in the series who possesses an entire range of transformations, each one being quite different than the others. It is implied by Vegeta and Frieza himself in the series that Frieza's fourth, most powerful form is actually his original form, with the other three being forms that suppress and conserve his enormous power. Frieza later confirms this while fighting the main protagonist, Goku. His forms seem to revolve around both western and Japanese concepts of demons.

Unlike most primary antagonists, Frieza displays a civilized and refined demeanor, talking with a regal and eloquent nature. He tends to handle most situations with a methodical approach. He commonly utilizes dark humor, making tasteless mockery of his foes before killing them. Frieza is fully aware of his reputation for brutality, and makes no effort to deny it, but rather revels in it as evidenced by his introduction to the Namekians. Despite his evil nature, Frieza can be quite gregarious towards people who treat him with reverence, such as as the Ginyu Force, who worship Frieza and exhibit extreme loyalty towards him. In Xenoverse 2, both Beerus and Whis note Frieza's charisma. Frieza is perceived as a capable leader. In the Frieza's Spaceship rift, it is implied he has a unique leadership style, through which he allows his subordinates to fight amongst each other in an attempt to get in his good graces. However, Frieze has shown mercy towards some of his fighters them by giving them second chances; one example is when he allows Dodoria and Zarbon to live after they are defeated by the Future Warrior.
