He was merged with Kami who was literally God and he showed the ability to sense God-ki before with the supreme kai during the world tournament saga. He needs some love from toyotaro.
Dragon ball super is good for what it is more dragon ball content. But when decisions are made like this it becomes obvious that the characters aren't being respected.
King Piccolo gave birth to lots of monsters and especially to piccollo jr. bt why doesnt Piccolo Jr. do that too? He could make like 100 normal monsters and 1-2 baby piccollos imagine the tournament of power with baby piccollos who are stronger than piccollo jr.
Baby Piccolo Jr. when he first hatched was far weaker (only a bit stronger than normal humans) than post-Sacred Water Goku's power level of 260, but in spite of this gap, he caught up to Goku and was roughly equal to him by the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai only 3 years later. Goku even had special training from people much stronger and more knowledgeable than himself (Kami and Mr. Popo) and 1 month of training in the Room of Spirit and Time, while Piccolo Jr. had to train all by himself with no sparring partners or teachers.
Power levels of the Z-Fighters measured by Raditz or by Bulma using Raditz's scouter:
Goku: 334 (measured by Raditz), 416 (w/o weighted training clothes)
Piccolo: 322 (measured by Raditz), 329 (measured by Bulma), 408 (w/o weighted training clothes)
Power levels of the Z-fighters in the fight against Nappa 1 year later:
Kuririn: 1,770, or 8.6× stronger
Yamcha: 1,480, or 8.4× stronger
Tenshinhan: 1,830, or 7.32× stronger
Goku: 8,000, or 19.2× stronger
Piccolo: 3,500, or 8.6× stronger
Again, the Earthlings were training under teachers stronger and more knowledgeable than themselves at first (Kami and Mr. Popo) and were all able to spar with partners approximately equal to their own strength (the other Earthlings), but Piccolo still kept up with their power growth in spite of only being able to train by himself or with someone much weaker than him (Gohan) and actually improved more than any of them except Kuririn.
Even Goku's gains only outperform Piccolo's by 2.2×, and Goku was training on a planet with 10× Earth gravity and a teacher almost as strong as Nappa (Kaio).
After the Saiyan Saga, we don't know exactly how big Piccolo's gains while training on Kaio's planet for 1 week were, but we know they were tremendous since Nail was shocked at Piccolo's strength, wondered how he could possibly have gotten so strong in such a short time, and commented that if Piccolo were one with Kami, he would have been able to beat (1st Form) Frieza who had a power level of 530,000, and since when Piccolo fused with Nail, he became even stronger than 2nd Form Frieza's power level of over 1 million.
At the absolute least, Piccolo's power level after that 1 week of Kaio training surpassed the strongest Namekian warriors besides Nail (10,000 power level each), or 2.9× how strong he was against Nappa; at the absolute most, he may have been slightly stronger than 1/2 of 1st Form Frieza, or a power level of 2... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is a game that's always seemed to fly under the radar and I've not heard much talk about it. What's the general consensus among Dragon Ball fans about it? I'm interested in it solely because we have so few modern games based on the first half of the manga and not just the same Raditz to Buu stuff we've seen a thousand times.
I'd like to pick it up for curiosity's sake but it seems to go for a pretty penny these days.
Cari miei amici del Nord e del Sud, cosa pensate delle nostre isole italiane. In particolare della bellissima Sardegna? (siciliani che stanno leggendo, non voletemene ma sono sardo...). Gli stereotipi state tranquilli sono ben accetti, anche perché io personalmente sono consapevole che purtroppo certi stereotipi sono veri. In realtà la domanda si riferisce solo alla Sardegna ma siccome è un’isola anche la Sicilia l’ho inclusa ahaha
So we know Whis has been looking to replace Beerus ever since battle of gods the movie and he thought Goku or Vegeta could be it But neither of them don't care about becoming GOD, but there's plenty of reasons why Whis should focus on Piccolo instead
• His lifespan Saiyan only live as long as humans so they could doe of old age as soon as they hit there 80s and there's no way they will get pass 100 and even if they do they will be way to old to figth and there already both in there mid 40s and 50s
But a namekian lifespan is far greater, Kami lived to be around 300 years old and Guru lived up to be 500 years old and could have probably lived longer because he did of a broken heart because frieza genocide, Piccolo is only around his late 20s or early 30s so he still has Years of life left upon him
• Piccolo doesn't really have a reason to refuse All Piccolo does is stay at Dende lookout do mediate and occasionally babysit Pan besides that that's all he does he would probably just accept to make his life more interesting and make him relevant again in the story
• He fused with Kami Since Piccolo fused with Kami he technically already has experience being a deity and knows how much of serious job it is, he's also way smarter and responsible than Beerus, Vegeta and Goku combined He will more than likely take his job very serious so he'll make far better decisions than Beerus so he won't be blowing up planets for no reason or sleeping for years
• all of the unique abilities he has Like regeneration, stretching limbo, growing giant, and being able to fuse with other namekians will make a force to be reckoned with not to mention everything he could learn from whis
The only reason I wouldn't see Piccolo becoming GOD , is he may not get along with Whis playful nature , Beerus won't allow it or that he's weaker than the saiyans although that could easily be overcome if he trains under Whis
Piccolo kills Goku and Raditz like in the story. How would piccolo keep up and rule the universe with all the powerful enemies?
i kinda like how piccolo ended up being one of the most honorable characters in the show 😂
Rewatching the show, it occurred to me what the real reason Piccolo eats food probably is whilst other Namekiens don't. Namekiens use photosynthesis to get energy, and their planet has three suns so never gets dark, so they can always 'eat'. Piccolo grew up on Earth, which has long nights, so there will be long periods he can't get energy from the sun. It's likely he learned to eat to compensate.
