— Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug
Angila (アンギラ, Angira) is one of Lord Slug's henchmen who appears in the 1991 film Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug.
Angila is a tall, fairly good looking man with blue skin and shaggy blonde hair, he also has horns and is dressed in Ancient Greek style clothes. On the original cover of Lord Slug, Angila's clothing is red instead of blue, and rather than blue, his skin pigment is a light green.
Angila bears a little resemblance and is highly modeled after Zarbon, one of Frieza's top henchmen, in terms of appearance and charisma. His personality is like Zarbon's, plus he is arrogant and loves to taunt people.
Angila is the strongest henchman of Lord Slug. Like Piccolo and other Namekians, he is capable of expanding the length of his arms to unparalleled lengths.
On Earth, Angila, Wings, Medamatcha, and three other soldiers locate the Dragon Balls for Lord Slug in less than one hour, with Angila killing a man in a small village to get the Three-Star ball.
Later, after Piccolo executes Wings and comes to rescue Gohan from Medamatcha, Angila grabs him. But Angila is lifted into the sky by the Namekian as he tries to hold on to him. Piccolo manages to lose Angila in the chaos and shields Gohan from one of Medamatcha's attacks.
After Goku furiously takes out Medamatcha, the enraged Angila fires a Mouth Energy Wave at Goku, only to have it deflected right back into his mouth, causing his head to explode, killing him.
