365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 52/365 Piccolo

Day 52/365

Piccolo

From the anime Dragon Ball, Piccolo is part of an alien race called the Namekians. He starts off as a bad guy but end up befriending Goku and joining sides with him to fight the Saiyan warriors. He even goes as far as training Goku's son Gohan so he can help with the fight.

Why I like him: He's the big green mean machine yet oh so lovable. He continually fights against anything friend or foe. He has endless unique powers and abilities including regeneration and telepathy.

Why I hate him: He's cocky as hell confident in his abilities to the point that brings misfortune upon himself.

Overall: Piccolo is a unique character that starts off bad then switches sides. Sure a lot of other anime have done this before but Piccolo will always be the ultimate awesome character that did it for me. It was a pleasure running home from school everyday to catch the latest episode of Dragon Ball.

    Piccolo is awesome. He was always my favorite DBZ character; it made me sad that he was increasingly shunted off to the side as the series progresses.

    He was my favorite and the strongest in the good guys side who wasn’t a saiyan in DBZ. More than once he ended up saving the day which was a good reminder he was still an important character. Sadly, when the super saiyan deal started it was just too much for anyone who wasn’t saiyan who catch up. It just goes to show us that powerful doesn’t necessarily mean interesting.

    Piccolo is totally bad ass. I mean, he’s not as good as Vegeta, who is the best (and also sort of turned good after being bad at first), but he’s still awesome…….except in the live action movie, although everything about that movie sucked. Actually, I erase it from my mind completely.
