How Appule joined the Tourney

Appule is one of countless soldiers that Frieza dispatches on Namek to search for the Namekian Dragon Balls and report any sightings of Namekian villages.

Appule goes to Moori's village alongside the rest of Frieza's raiding group. For the first part of the battle, Appule watches as his comrades are defeated, before jumping in to assist, only to be kicked away by one of the Namekians along with a fellow soldier, Appule gets up again and attempts to fight another of the Namekians, though before the outcome can be decided, Dodoria attacks Moori, distracting Appule and allowing the Namekian to knock him away. Appule and Zarbon are the only henchmen of the raiding team to survive the battle at Moori's village.

Later on, he finds the last Namekian village, Tsuno's village, destroyed by Vegeta and reports back to Frieza. Frieza then assigns him to oversee Vegeta's recovery (in the anime, another soldier of the same race finds the village destroyed by Vegeta. However, Appule is still sent out to search for villages by Zarbon, but returns to Frieza's ship offscreen). Vegeta was going to be interrogated when he woke up. However, the situation goes awry when Vegeta escapes from the Medical Machine and knocks out Appule with a single energy wave.

After recovering, Appule continues to guard the Dragon Balls after this, however he is killed when the Z Fighters attack Frieza's ship in order to take the Dragon Balls.

Returned to life, Appule is ordered by Frieza to hunt for the Saiyans who prieviously killed him. Suddenly he hears a campign for a world of war and weapons announced by Senator Steven Armstrong.
