Can Piccolo Get Significantly Stronger And Be Bad-Ass Again?

Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama has publicly stated that Piccolo is his personal favourite character in the series however; Piccolo has been almost useless ever since the end of Cell.

Tough the former villain still has a pretty decent track record in comparison to the other non-Saiyan characters, being the only one to succeed in killing Goku, helped kill Raddits, fought evenly with second form Frieza and during the Androids raid, he momentarily became the strongest being on earth.

So yes, Piccolo was one of the most bass-ass characters of the series, rivalling Vegeta when it came to his entrances to a battle, but things haven’t been like that for a while now, especially in Dragon Ball super.

As we go to see when Frieza was resurrected and came to earth for revenge, Piccolo had to be saved by Gohan (who could barley transform into a Super Saiyan) from one of Frieza’s goons, this made me cringe in disgust on how low Piccolo had fallen.

But we may see an end to Piccolo being useless in the near future, with the new arc being announced and Piccolo is seen, along with many of the other Z-Fighters, ready for a fight.

For much deprived Piccolo fans we got to see a glimmer of hope in the Champa arc, when Piccolo went to participate in a tournament against Universe 6.

Piccolo had to fight Frost who had just beaten Goku in the previous fight, Piccolo was openly underrated by everyone, including his own teammates but as he stated himself, you shouldn’t underestimate him.

Piccolo dominated, his fighting smarts and brilliance was shown to be far superior to Frost’s, and he would have won after the epic performance, if Frost hadn’t cheated that is.

Finally we got to see Piccolo be awesome again, even if it was only momentarily, he showed us that he is still pretty strong and the he can still make an impact.

But smarts can only get you so far, he needs a power-up just like the Saiyans keep getting, but how?

Piccolo cant really fuse with anyone again as he did with Kami and Nail, as the only other Namekian on earth is Dende, and he isn’t much of a fighter.

Piccolo can however learn the Kai O’Ken, actually its quite surprising he hasn’t learnt it yet as he too trained under King Kai as did Goku, for some time.

We also need to remember that Piccolo can enlarge himself into a gigantic being, similar to Lord Slug, but bigger.

We see this technique once in the last tournament against Goku in Dragon Ball, and then sadly we never see it again.

Imagine him enlarging into a gigantic being, the size of a skyscraper and then using the Kai O’Ken x100, he would be pretty scary then wouldn’t he?

This most likely will never happen, but something that may actually happen and so may be an option for a power-up, can be Gohan’s Mystic form.

All he would have to do is give the Elder Kai some porn and I’m sure he would give him the power-up, especially as he is also a former guardian of the Earth, since he has fused with Kami.

But who knows, as Piccolo has always found different ways of powering-up compared to the Saiyans, so we may see something completely different, or even some training with Whis preparing for the next tournament.

Whatever the method, I just hope we get to see Piccolo the way we watched him in the early parts of Dragon Ball Z, and that’s bad-ass again.

  1. I disagree with a major point in your article, Dende is the person Piccolo needs to fuse with to become a complete Namekian.
    The Namekians fall into two groups, warriors and mystics. In the current cast of characters, we have Piccolo, a warrior, and Dende, a mystic. I’ve always believed the true “Super” Namkeian, and for DB Super, “God” Namekian can only come from a fusion of a powerful member of each class.
    The resulting individual would possess the whole of the special abilities available to the species, including a drastic increasing in regeneration coupled with the power level of a Super Namkeian warrior. Piccolo may feel a fusion is the only way to gain the strength to compete, and with the universe at risk, I don’t think he would hesitate to join. Think about it, he fused with Kami, who he hated, to protect the earth from Cell.
    The fusion of the two types could result in the first true Namekian in ages, which feels like it follows the story of tapping into an untold power to fulfill a destiny brought on by conflict in the multiverse.
