Namek is one of the strongest races in Dragon Ball. Piccolo is the most outstanding of them all. Here are five unique facts about Piccolo and strange secrets about this character.
In Dragon Ball, the Namesk have a very strange asexual ability, as demonstrated by Piccolo during the events of Dragon Ball and Guru in Dragon Ball Z. King Piccolo can spawn, can evolve into independently new creatures. These eggs can also be used for regeneration, as King Piccolo did after being seriously injured by fighting Goku. This led to the birth of Piccolo Jr. However, unlike his father, Piccolo theoretically could not produce any descendants on his own.
Because he is a resurrection of King Piccolo, Piccolo Jr also retains a later connection with Kami. After coming to Earth, God becomes the guardian of this planet. But his inner darkness prevented him from fulfilling this as intended. That’s why God was forced to separate himself into two parallel beings, the good half Kami and the dark half King Piccolo. If one person dies, the other dies too.
Later, Piccolo Jr also inherited this trait from his father. This resulted in Kami’s death in the Saiyan Saga, due to Piccolo’s death while fighting Nappa. As such, it also means that the two can fuse into a single being, which they do right before the start of Cell Saga.
Although he did not have the full magical potential of Kami, Piccolo still used the Namek’s “material recovery” ability. Although Piccolo is incapable of creating anything as great as dragon ball, Piccolo used the “material recovery” ability in Dragon Ball Z to create clothes for Gohan. This is also how Piccolo creates his own clothes.
The Namek people have an extremely impressive healing ability in Dragon Ball, allowing them to recreate lost body parts with ease. For example, after having his arm cut off in his battle with Radditz and Cell in perfect condition, Piccolo was able to regrow his arm in seconds. However, doing this requires intense concentration and causes Piccolo to suffer damage.
The other Namek have shown powers similar to Nail (who regrown his arm after it was torn apart by Frieza) and Lord Slug (who regrows his arm after being seriously injured by Goku) . In Dragon Ball Super, Piccolo was even able to heal a hole in his chest during the strength tournament. However, it is worth noting that the Namek cannot regenerate their head if it is destroyed, as the regenerative nucleus that can do this resides in their skulls. If it is destroyed, then the Namek will lose the ability to regrow body parts and heal the wound.
Owning pointed ears helps Piccolo very audible Dragon Ball. This becomes a prominent detail in Dragon Ball’s unofficial Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug. Slug, a powerful Namek, attacked Earth and restored his youth with dragon balls. He quickly proves to be a formidable foe, even able to deal with Goku’s powers.
However, Gohan discovered that whistling was more than enough to torment Slug. Realizing this potential advantage, Piccolo ripped off his own ears and ordered Gohan to whistle, which wound Slug long enough for the other characters to defeat him. Piccolo’s regeneration ability allows him to restore his ears later and also restore his hearing.
