It's ironic, isn't it? After all my years of training to defeat your father, I go out like this trying to save you; his son.
~ Piccolo

Piccolo is on of the main characters of the Dragon Ball series. He is the final child and reincarnation of the Piccolo Daimao.


After being punched through the chest and killed by Goku's Penetrate! attack, King Piccolo's last action was to spit out an egg containing his child and reincarnation Piccolo Jr, who was to avenge his death. Upon Piccolo's birth he still remembered all of King Piccolo's memories and techniques. Piccolo Jr. spends the next three years in intensive training, preparing himself for the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, where he knew Goku would be a contestant, with the intent to kill him and realize his parent's dream of taking over the world. During the three-year wait till the tournament, Piccolo wanders the Earth and trains for his revenge against Goku. During his wandering, he encounters a family celebrating the birthday of a young boy named Tai. During the boy's birthday celebration, Piccolo vandalizes their home and then runs away from their dog when Tai's father orders it to chase him. When the dog nearly catches up to the young Namekian, Piccolo blasts it away in fear with a beam, realizing some of the potential he has.

After spending the three years training, a now physically teenage Piccolo enters the tournament using the alias "Junior" Piccolo manages to find Goku before the tournament properly begins, and Piccolo reminds himself not to let Goku win, and he must avenge his father. When the tournament starts, Piccolo easily breezed past the preliminaries and into the finals. Piccolo's fight with Goku has Piccolo use an assortment of new powerful techniques, however Goku finds a way to make many of them work to his advantage and soon defeats Piccolo and frees Kami. After an assortment of events leading with Goku eventually healing him, Piccolo flies off still with the goal of killing Goku in mind.

Piccolo later becomes a permanent member of the Z Fighters, largely due to forming a close bond with Goku's first-born son Gohan after training him in preparation for the impending arrival of the Saiyans and other future threats.

  • Weighted Clothing: A collection of weighted clothing Piccolo wears to improve his training, he can also throw the gear, catching his opponent off guard.

Alternate Forms

Giant Piccolo

Piccolo's size greatly increases, his strength and weight increases, and the form does not impact his speed in a violent way. Piccolo can increase to the size he wants, and uses three different size in the series: he is around the same height as Super Garlic Jr. when fighting him, he is giant sized when first used against Goku (about the size of a Great Ape), and he barely fits on the arena and would not be able to take a step other wise he would step off when he grows even larger against Goku. His largest seen size is described as being as large as a mountain in the manga, and a volcano in the anime, this larger version of Great Namek is referred to as Super Giant-Form.

Super Namek

After fusing with Nail, Piccolo is referred to as a Super Namek. After Piccolo re-fused with Kami, he powers up to levels well beyond any of the existing Warrior-type Namekians ever before. Krillin called him a "Super Namek" because of his new and extraordinary powers, able to far eclipse the strength of an untrained Super Saiyan. As a Super Namek, his figure doesn't change, but his power, strength and speed are sharply enhanced. While using his Super Namek power against Android 17, Piccolo gains a large blue and white aura.
