Saiyan Race is one of the most mysterious warrior races where every Saiyan possesses incredible powers. But when it comes to Namekians, the first name that hits the Dragon Ball Z fan’s mind is Piccolo, Goku’s staunchest ally. Piccolo has showcased insane abilities in some instances, can he compete with the Super Saiyans in terms of power?
Namekians are typically divided into two groups – the Warriors and the Big Minds. Piccolo belongs to the warrior species. Throughout the Dragon Ball Z franchise, the Namekian warrior has stretched his ability to a new level. But how strong is he, actually? Let’s have a close look at Dragon Ball Super?
Although Piccolo was titled the most powerful soul at some point in the DBZ saga, gradually various Saiyans overshadowed him. So, Piccolo is much inferior to Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan in terms of power.
However, back in the Saiyan Saga, Piccolo was the second strongest character in the anime. But, as new heroes were established, the saga became less dependent on Piccolo’s abilities. But, there were several instances when Piccolo showcased his powers.
The Namekians warrior displayed incredible power in his fights in Dragon Ball Super. While, in the universe 6 saga, we got the glimpse that Piccolo can single-handedly defeat Frost in fair fights. We saw how Goku struggled to cope with Frost in his base form. So this shows that Piccolo is much stronger than Goku’s base form.
So, is Piccolo stronger than most of the Dragon Ball Z heroes? Piccolo is far stronger than the weaker superheroes of the DBZ franchise including Tien, Krilin, Yamcha, Master Roshi, and more. But, when it comes to the ultimate super Saiyan like Goku, Vegeta, and others like Freiza, Piccolo has to gain much more power to compete with them.
