|Captain Ginyu Ginyu is the leader of the Ginyu Tokusentai, a group of mercenaries hired by Frieza after his regular henchmen failed to kill Vegeta and obtain the Dragonballs. He is a stocky, purple-skinned mutant with horns, who had the power to change bodies with an opponent at will. When the Ginyu Tokusentai had gathered the seven Dragonballs, or rather stolen them from Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan, Ginyu took them back to Frieza. Later, when Jees returned to inform him that Rikuum, Burter, and Guldo had been killed, Ginyu was furious, and rushed to face the man responsible - Goku. A fierce battle ensued, in which a cocky Ginyu, aching for a good fight, encouraged Goku to power up to his maximum. Goku did so, rocketing to 180,000, many points above Ginyu's own 120,000. Ginyu then realized the advantage of this, and used his powers to swap bodies with Goku. He then ran into Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta, but because he was not used to his new body, they defeated him easily, and he was forced to return to his old body again. Ginyu then attempted to change bodies with Vegeta, but Goku thwarted this attempt by tossing a Namekian frog into the body-snatching beam, causing Ginyu to change bodies with the frog! Vegeta, amused with Ginyu's new form, spared his life. Ginyu later showed up to change bodies with Bulma, but wound up as a frog yet again. After the ordeal with Frieza, Ginyu was transported safely to Earth with the others, where he lived as a frog until Kid Buu destroyed the Earth. When he died, he reacquired his original body. This is true because when the scenes cut out to Hell/HFIL, when all the bad guys from the previous episodes are watching Goku, Vegeta, Fat Buu, and Hercule's fight with Kid Buu, you see Ginyu among the bad guys, along with the rest of the Ginyu Force.
