Will Piccolo get anything from the Universe 6 Namekians?

Post by namekiansaiyan » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:39 am

Will there be a Namekian God or some other power up.

Will they provide some Namekian lore for a potential Power up that does not exist yet for any Namekian?

I doubt there will be fusion because I don't see any situation where that is possible.

How strong will they be?

Yes, an ass beating..

It's two against one, what do you expect..

Unless Gohan tags along again.. Then he gets to eat both of their bodies up and become powerful because hax..

That is not happening and they will probaby 2 vs 1 Gohan before Piccolo intervenes and tells Gohan that they are way out of his league.

You know they are going to be good and you can't wait.

Namakians are a big part of DB lore so I'd assume they'd do something with them. An alternate reality power up would be a great way to get him up there with Goku. If we're going to go to U6's Saiyan planet then we could also go to their Namek.

They reveal their power up and they think Piccolo does not have it due to Champa but he does and that really does answer Gohan's question during their training of 'how did you get so strong'.

I just want the Namkians to be a Piccolo's rivals and obviously provide a power up.

I'd like the Piccolo lookalike to be Gohan's while Piccolo takes on the Slug wannabe. I think Gohan having to fight someone who looks like his teacher and father figure will be a great way to give him some kind of character development.

This might be an unpopular opinion but i don't want another namekian fusion.I would rather have tingle his antennae(Not the back for originality).Joking aside,I would love to see piccolo getting a power up due to his mystical abilities/heritage.

No potential power up Piccolo = Piccolo fans having the right to complain forever because of the differences between Unuverse 6 and 7 Saiyans.

It is time to make the Red eyed form official

I want no fusion!

I've seen many people talk about ''namekian god" but I really doubt something like that is in store for Piccolo. Call it pessimism, but given previous treatment, I wouldn't be surprised if those two namekians have more to do with Gohan or Goku than with him. Why? Because the only episode Piccolo got leading up to the tournament was all about Gohan; his supposed increase in power happened off screen; you haven't seen him consider or evaluate his own power at all. Heck, even in the opening, the only shots he gets is him standing behind Gohan.

Either way, even if he were to get a power-up, we might not want it to happen here. It's just going to be overshadowed by whatever Goku, Gohan, Freeza, and Jiren will show.

Red eyed namek sounds vicious, but you know what sounds even better? Ultimate Gohan..
Now that's a name you should fear..

Joking aside, how about a potential unleased piccolo? He won't need to have any transformation and uni 6 can teach him how to take his power beyond his limits, with some sort of ritual 3 namkes can do or something like that..

Your first paragraphs arguments is destroyed becuase of what happened to Krillin. He got all those things you said and was out after 3 episodes.

What exactly are Gohan and Frieza going to show? The benefit of the power up is to future proof Piccolo from not being involved.

There is no way a Piccolo lookalike or Namekians in general has nothing to do with Piccolo. If Piccolo does not face them, then who does his fight?

The Piccolo lookalike(Saonel) will probably be the stronger one while Lord Slug lookalike (Pilina) is weaker.
Nappa and Vegeta situation again. Take away a Piccolo to benefit Gohan when it should benefit Piccolo? I don't think so!

I am going to say the red eyed will become official.

That just sounds boring and like the Saiyans. Since Legendary Super Saiyan became a thing it makes sense to introduce the Red Eyed form.

I would put that on toei but I won't blame them entirely.Piccolo's character basically surrounds gohan,kami,fighting,training and nameks. Now piccolo can not go to namek or kami or fighting due to his low power and there is nothing interesting in green man staring at wastelands.However,toei does have uninspired plotline of piccolo sacrificing himself for gohan like movies and rof arc.Toriyama was involved in rof movie in which piccolo did not sacrificed himself.I expect piccolo to be less centered on gohan in manga.

So not only do you guys want piccolo to have a big powerup and really matter which he dosen't right now, but you also want it to look really cool and be unique in the process..

This is not hard to do and the point of giving Piccolo the power up is to add variety. Piccolo matters the same as Gohan or Vegeta or Tien since they currently can't do anything agaisnt Jiren which they need to do.
