Why is Freeza constantly laughing all the time like The Joker?

Freeza constantly laughing all the time feels like some new thing Super came up with. Sure he'd laugh sarcastically before on Namek and stuff, but he's done it in almost every episode he appears in now. It's like he's The Joker from Batman, he can't stop laughing.

It's definitely a change but I appreciate it. I like that he at least tries to keep his composure now.

I think it's just the choice of Freeza's seiyuu. I found it funnier when Freeza and Frost laughed at the same time, before the tournament began, as they planned their schemes.

Why is he so calm though? He wasn't even mad like last episode and that was even before he got mentally and physically abused by Toppo.

I have to say it's amusing. Makes for some perfect compilations.

It's because of the memes.
Every character gets one specific trait flanderized so it becomes ridiculous and funny to cater to the meme obsessed part of the audience.
That is why we have JUSTICE DAB Toppo too.

He spent like 30 years in Hell listening to a bunch of living stuffed animals play the trumpet while cherubs danced around him so maybe he is a bit erratic. Well, the real reason is probably just because it is an easy way to convey his smugness but I prefer to think it is the former.

His laugh became his signature. I can't help, but crack myself on laughter everytime i hear the "ohohoho" (episode 125 made me tear up of laughter, lol). It adds to his personality.

I love how Freeza is at the same time POLITE, cocky, arrogant, and evil, and the his laugh mix well with all of that.

i hope that after the end of Super someone collects ALL of Freeza's laugh in a compilation like this.

That shit is too funny haha

Because Freeza finally developed himself after the showdown after his resurrection, throwing tantrums is pointless. How is it even remotely "writing ball drop" (whatever that means).

Maybe is actually having fun and understanding it's better to not be a dik and being destroyed, rather is more funny to fight, training, improve, repeat

That development has nothing to do with him being pretty confident, calm and physically fine after Toppo destroyed him last episode. It's as if the writer forgot what happened last episode.

I think we sometimes forget that these "writers" are actually other adult human beings with functioning brains in their skulls?
This assumption is just too insulting.

Also, it's not like if these episodes air then the writer is like "oh yeah, time to write the next episode". A group of episodes are probably written at the same time.

I don't mind that he's laughing. What gets me is we see him get the absolute shit beat out of him but then he suddenly shows up happening like it was nothing. That makes no sense to me at all
