In the Dragon Ball series, there are a few characters who switch from good to evil and vice versa. For example, Piccolo, the blue guy after the reforms had many heroic moments. Let’s take a look below!
5. Try to protect Android 17
Piccolo had to try to stop Cell from absorbing Android 17 at any cost. He does everything he can, consuming energy just to try to eliminate Cell. Of course this action didn’t work, but it showed the biggest part of Piccolo’s personality. That he has the character of a hero.
4. Sacrifice with the Earth
Dragon Ball GT has a lot of things going wrong, but one of the few bright spots in this storyline is the decision that Piccolo makes in the Baby arc. Even people who hate this movie will admit it was a well done scene. The way Piccolo is ready to die, ensures that the black star dragon balls will turn into extremely heroic rocks. The conversation with Gohan just before his death was even more powerful.
3. Gohan training
Fans of the series often joke that Piccolo is Gohan’s real father. Because their relationship is extremely strong and that is also the main reason why he became a true hero on Earth.
Piccolo started coaching Gohan as a child, as something Piccolo did to honor Goku’s sacrifice. Piccolo did not use any strict measures to make Gohan more tough, showing that his method of teaching was very special. And then, his thinking about the boy changed as the series continued.
2. Sacrifice yourself to protect Gohan
The way he uses his own body to protect Gohan from getting hurt from Nappa is a wonderful scene. It shows the development of Piccolo in the story and how much he cares for and loves Goku’s son. It will forever be one of the iconic scenes associated with the character, made so well that it even returns in Dragon Ball Super.
1. Sacrificing yourself for the second Gohan
The second time Piccolo sacrificed himself to save Gohan makes the readers unforgettable. This moment doesn’t have the same level of impact as the first, but it’s still amazing. Despite the passage of time, under any circumstances, Piccolo is always there for Gohan.
