Ferrara's alter ego, Cryogonal Man
Dr. Ferrara (Japanese: ツララー博士 Dr. Tsuraraa) is a character of the day who appeared in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue!. He is the leader of Team Vanillite, a criminal gang in Driftveil City, and the main antagonist of the episode.
He first appeared inside the Cold Storage with his two henchmen. His plan was to befriend all of the Vanillite residing in the Unova region with frozen food. He later appeared when Linda was investigating the Cold Storage and took her hostage. In an attempt to run away from the gang, he took on the alter-ego Cryogonal Man (Japanese: フリージ男 Freege Man) with a Cryogonal mask on his face.
Despite all of that, he did not succeed in his plan and ended up being arrested for his criminal deeds.
- His Japanese name presumably comes from 氷柱, Tsurara, the Japanese word for icicle.
- Freege Man is a play on Cryogonal's Japanese name, Freegeo, as well as the Japanese word for man, otoko. Literally, it is Freege-otoko.
- Freege Man's name could also be a reference to the Batman villain Mr. Freeze.
- The professor's henchmen, with their costume and scream in mind, were most likely based on the foot soldiers of the Shocker organization of the Kamen Rider franchise.
