|"Lord Frieza, Sorbet, permission to join in the battle?"
— Shisami in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’
Shisami (シサミ, Shisami) was an elite solider serving Sorbet.
Shisami is a tall, red, humanoid alien with brown horns and a brown nose. Shisami has a bulky build. He wears a new type of Battle Armor which is colored green and black with a blue piece in the middle. In addition, Shisami wears black and white wristbands. He does not wear any lower garments but black underwear.
Shisami seems to be jealous of Tagoma's position as Sorbet's bodyguard, and will often make rude remarks towards Tagoma. Like Tagoma and Sorbet, he is very loyal to his superiors, Sorbet and Frieza, and will only do as they command. He does not see Tagoma fitting in Frieza's army. Other than this, he is seen as very cold and merciless, as he is prepared to kill Piccolo when fighting him, and attempts to break Gohan's spine.
Dragon Ball Super
Battle of Gods Saga
In the Dragon Ball Super manga, Shisami hears the news that Guarana, the army's second strongest, has been taken out by an unidentified force which frightens him.
"I'll start with you, Namekian." — Shisami challenging Piccolo.
Shisami is part of the elite soldiers, being on par with Tagoma on the position of Sorbet's top-men. However, the standing-in leader of the Galactic Frieza Army seems to favorite Tagoma as his right-hand man over Shisami, and this drives Shisami mad, as he keeps on trying to get his master's attention and appreciation. He later does the same when Sorbet and Tagoma introduce themselves to newly regenerated Frieza (who never got too much contact with their Third Stellar Region sector), proving that his jealousy of Tagoma had caused him to start a hidden-competition for appreciation of his bosses.
When Sorbet and his forces decided to revive Frieza, he only took Tagoma with him, causing Shisami to be angered. He was angered even more when Tagoma doubts Frieza and his power but soon gets over it when Frieza is fully revived. Upon seeing Frieza intimidating Sorbet and cruelty towards Tagoma, Shisami and the other soldiers cower in fear of the tyrant.
Shisami is one of Frieza's 1,000 soldiers who come to Earth to help in his revenge against the Saiyans. In the movie he fights a battle against Piccolo, however he seems to have a slight advantage due to being superior in strength. After all of Frieza's other soldiers are defeated, Shisami is still fighting with Piccolo. Seeing this Gohan helps Piccolo, defeating him in one blow after turning Super Saiyan. Sorbet cannot believe even Shisami was defeated while Frieza comments on how fearsome the Super Saiyans are.
In the anime Sorbet orders Shisami to eliminate them - claiming that they stand no chance as Shisami is his strongest soldier. Shisami approaches the warriors and Gohan decides to fight him, firing a barrage of energy attacks at the elite soldier, Shisami flies straight at Gohan, punching his way through the energy blasts and then grabs Gohan in a bear hug, Shisami then attempted to crush Gohan's spine, however the Saiyan-Human hybrid responded by powering up and releasing more of his potential causing Shisami to struggle to keep a hold of him. Before things could proceed any further, Shisami was shot in the back by Tagoma - who had used this opportunity to attempt to wipe out the strongest enemy - after a last statement of his hate towards Tagoma, Shisami falls and dies from his injuries.
In the movie after the defeat of his army, a disappointed Frieza kills all of his soldiers, including Shisami.
Universe 6 Saga
In a manga extra featured in Warriors of Universe 6, Shisami is shown in Earth's Hell with Sorbet and Frieza.
It is stated by Sorbet before Frieza's invasion of Earth, that Shisami possesses a power level comparable to that of Zarbon and Dodoria in their prime.
Shisami is the strongest soldier in Frieza's army. By the time of the invasion of Earth he is shown holding an advantage over Piccolo, thanks to having greater power than the Namekian. He is easily defeated by Super Saiyan Gohan in a single blow, which greatly surprises Sorbet - who believes that Shisami being defeated so quickly should be impossible.
In Dragon Ball Super, by the time of Frieza's revenge, Sorbet states that Shisami has become the strongest soldier in Frieza's army, he proves strong enough to deflect a barrage of energy blasts from Gohan, and then trapped the latter in a bear hug. However, despite his power, Shisami is killed on a single shot from Tagoma - who through training had become the true strongest soldier in Frieza's army.
