During the Freeza Saga, Piccolo absorbed Nail and became more powerful and was able to handle Frieza himself in his second form.

We later see him do this again during the Cell Saga when he absorbs Kami (to become whole again) becoming the strongest of the Z fighters for a moment in time.

Currently he is front and center in the manga having one of his greatest battles yet but in an effort to avoid spoilers myself, I have not looked into it much beyond that. Knowing he is the main fighter right now makes it seem promising that in the future anime presentation, he will be taking the head seat again as the strongest fighter.

Knowing how much power he can gain from absorbing other Namekians, do you think we will see this in the future? Could he finally take the spotlight and become the strongest of the fighters for an extended period of time?

I think it was officially "Sync with Nail" and "Fuse with Kami"...but I could be wrong on this one. What he did with Nail, gave him Nail's power, but no essence of Nail was left. What he did with Kami, was to rejoin the good and evil halves, (I think making him again Super Namek), but some of Kami remained with him.

Either way, I was bored with Piccolo being sidelined. Such a great character needs to be able to power up more and be more of a rival to the Saiyans. I hope to see Piccolo find a way to equal or even surpass Goku.

Nail was still present for awhile. At least this was the case for the dubbed version in the anime.


And I agree. Vegeta was always my favorite but Piccolo was not far behind as my second favorite. He is such a well-rounded character and fighter, he deserves more.

Yes. Absolutely. This was pretty awesome. But I think Piccolo chose to reveal this. It was not forced on him. The major thing is that Piccolo was still himself after combining with Nail. Piccolo clearly changed after fusing with Kami. He was wiser. More a knowledgeable. I guess that's the point I was trying to make.

Oh yeah I see what you mean now. Kami was part of him, Nail wasn't so he only gained energy from Nail.

I would love to see Piccolo become relevant again. Him being nothing more than Gohan and Videl's babysitter in Super was annoying. Barring any new lore Toriyama cooks up out of the blue, he's going to have to fuse with other Namekians to gain power.
Going to kind of be hard now since Moro destroyed New Namek save Esca but here's hoping that gets fixed.

Considering he is his favorite character, you'd think he'd be more than that but maybe it is a touch back to him being a family guy? Who knows. I just hope something good comes from the current story. I won't know it until the anime starts but *fingers crossed*.

I think it could happen for him to fuse with another Namekian and contend with Goku and Vegeta power-wise, but I think the great opportunity for this happening lied on this current arc... with how the story seems structured now, the rest of the job seems to be reserved for Goku and Vegeta. And I think Piccolo will be bound to this hole until the end of the Super series, being one of Earth's highlights but still paling to Vegeta and Goku.

And this is coming from a Piccolo fan, from one who'd love to see him occupying the strongest role like after his fusions with Kami and Nail... and since this Super's manga caters a lot to the fans' desires, I don't think it's completely impossible for this to happen, so there's a faint hope awake... we shall see.
