Raspberry (ラーズベリ Rāzuberi) is a soldier of the Frieza Force.

Appearance[]

Raspberry sports the same garb as most members of the Frieza Force, though with a helmet and a blaster attached to his arm that he uses as a weapon. He wears a purple undersuit.

Biography[]

Background[]

Raspberry enlisted in the Frieza Force after Frieza invaded his homeworld, thinking it would be a decent way to make money.

Dragon Ball Z[]

Frieza Saga[]

Main article: Namek SagaIn the anime, Raspberry and Blueberry are among the militants sent to investigate the Dragon Balls, which have been seized by Vegeta. During Raspberry and Blueberry's search, they encounter Bulma, who is in possession of one of the Dragon Balls. Convinced she knows the location of the other six balls, the pair try to intimidate Bulma, threatening to take her to Frieza for a more personal interrogation. Frieza refrained from informing any of his low-class soldiers about the background of the Dragon Balls and only stressed their importance. Bulma reveals to Raspberry and Blueberry that gathering the seven Dragon Balls results in the reward of a single wish (the Earthlings are unaware at this time that the Namekian Dragon Balls are capable of granting a total of three wishes). While his partner, Blueberry, is intrigued by the idea of Frieza no longer being able to "boss [them] around," Raspberry finds the idea preposterous.

The two then kidnap Bulma and demand she lead them to the rest of the balls, still under the impression that she has them stashed away on Namek. At last Bulma comes up with an idea, "confessing" that the Dragon Balls are hidden deep beneath the sea. This plan nearly backfires when Bulma leads them to a cavern she believes to be a dead end. However it is revealed that this cavern is a nest for thousands of crabs lead by one giant crab Bulma encountered earlier in the episode. Raspberry and Blueberry mistake these to be thousands of sets of Dragon Balls, before the giant crab makes an appearance to defend her offspring. Bulma manages to make an escape which apparently goes unnoticed, but is soon followed by a desperate and infuriated Raspberry and Blueberry. Their counterattack fails however, when the giant crab emerges from the sea, snatches them in its claws and drags them below.

Three soldiers who look similar to Raspberry are regular foes in Dragon Ball Z II: Gekishin Freeza: the dark-skinned Navel (ネイブル), the blue-skinned Monrei (モンレー), and Guprei (グプレー Gupure).

In Xenoverse, Raspberry's recolors Navel, Monrei and Guprei appears in the game as alternate costumes. In early versions of Xenoverse, Raspberry was named Larsberi.

In Xenoverse 2, an alternate version of Raspberry exists in the Frieza's Spaceship rift timeline created by Towa's Distorted Time Egg. During the Frieza Race Future Warrior's Prologue cutscene, they are sent to investigate the rift and witness Frieza observing Raspberry, Orlen, Appule, and Navel as they perform exercise drills under Captain Ginyu. At one point, they even perform a team Fighting Pose at Ginyu's command (with their choreography being perfect presumably due to Captain Ginyu's influence as their drill instructor).
