I believe "Namole" is a dub-only name for an originally nameless character. I should make a list of those one of these days.

Hmmm... I don't watch the dub anymore, so I wonder where I got that...

I guess I hust saw it on VHS back when people watched VHS (shrugs).

You gotta admit, Namole is a pretty cool name, though.

While we're on the topic of obscure, named Nameks, how about that Muri?

Muuri's not obscure o_O He becomes the new Great Elder and we see him... compared to 80% of the other Nameccians, a lot. Granted there are painfully few named Nameccians in the first place <_<

Oh whatever! You're like... THE Namek guy! I just ran across his name reading the manga for the first time tonight and thought it was sort of random.

Well, the character isn't that obscure. He's pretty much in every reference to the Namekians from the Freeza arc on. But I think the name is rarely ever mentioned.

So, while he's not an obscure character with a name, he's a character with an obscure name. Or something.

Do filler characters like Piegaro count?
