    Because it's a totally unnecessary change.

    One of bad taste as well if you ask me.

    Duh. They turned him pink. Literally for no reason. It looks like he had a secret love child with Kid Buu.

    A. It isn't even a change from the original source material. Hes the same color in the manga. Just as Trunks's hair was fixed to be the right color Freeza's color was fixed too.
    B. From the perspective of the anime, this gives us the idea that this is a more youthful Freeza. Which makes sense since this is several decades before the Namek arc transpired and we saw him. He shouldnt look the same in both instances.

    His facial skin is more pinkish in colour compared to before which was whiter. Another change is that the protrusions in his forearms are completely white when before they had a portion that was painted green. But that's about it, aside from not having the stripes (I swear, if I see anyone talking about him lacking shoulder pads, I'm going to break).

    the shoulder pads are the only legitimate gripe. The colors dont actually contradict anything

    We're talking about a character who can change his appearance at will and even turned golden specifically to mock Super Saiyans. This is hardly the biggest stretch in DB continuity.

    Frieza race can probably change skin color and body structures at will. It's probably the equivalent of him changing his clothes.


    I mean his first form changed to match his clothes or armor.

    They can.

    In the Frieza movie (and maybe the manga too), he mentioned that he chose gold for his new transformation. It wasn't explicit, but he heavily implied that he can decide what his forms look like.

    Right. And since we know form 4 is his natural form and he created the lower forms to contain his power, we can assume he can alter them to look like anything he wants. So he looks like a Xenomorph in form 3 because he wanted to horrify the shit out of people and make them uncomfortable, not because it's his actual biology. That's like a halloween mask a serial killer or rapist puts on to humiliate his victims. Think about that for a minute. That's who Frieza is. He's a sociopath to the core.

    I am much more upset about Goku's backstory change than pink fucking Freeza

    First of all, it's likely he will be like that for 5-10 minutes
    Second, it's an unnecessary change i agree, but we don't fucking know shit

    Maybe there is a reason why he looks like that

    And if there really isn't a legitimate reason for it, he will never appear like that again
    I understand its unnecessary

    But much more important shit has been changed
    This is pretty irrelevant in comparison

    People are racist against space lizards. I've said this ever since Toei and Yammer let the Pride Troopers brutalize him.

    It looks like ass.

    Why need to retcon? Bardock special was literally perfect. All they had to do was flesh some stuff that happens with other characters at the time like: Goku's mom, Paragus and King Vegeta. Have Gin be the one that sends Goku away. Such thing would had been perfect.

    Alas current Tori is senile.

    I can't believe people would try and racebait about Dragonball. As if Toriyama would ever suggest... oh wait.
