As Dragon Ball fans we have seen a ridiculous amount of content about the Saiyans and their transformations, with the other races slowly being forgotten as the franchise continued.
However, while growing up I always felt that the Namekian’s were just as awesome as the Saiyans and I could never understand why they were just brushed aside.
We have to remember that they can create of the Dragon Balls and at one point, were considered incredibly powerful.
This was shown when Piccolo and Goku were pretty much at equal strength and arch-rivals, well until another Saiyan in Vegeta arrived that is.
Still though the Namekian’s were and still are a highly dangerous race with their own transformations as well, which have for some reason have been forgotten.
We have only seen Piccolo use The Super Namekian transformation once in his fight against Goku in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, also later again through Guru and and Slug.
The only problem is this technique was quickly forgotten, similar to the Namekian’s power. I also find this quite strange considering Akira Toriyama has publicly stated that Piccolo is his favourite character.
Yes, Piccolo does at points surpass the Saiyan’s on multiple occasions however, his time in the spotlight is brief and the last time he was under it was quite a long time ago.
So this video below made by Geekdom 101, highlights the forgotten Namekian’s powers and explains their Super transformation further.
