Powers and Abilities

Piccolo has shown many unique abilities throughout the series. Due to his Namekian physiology,[16] Piccolo can expand his arms,[17][18] move fast enough to not be seen,[19] regenerate lost limbs of his body[20][21] so long as his head is still intact,[22] and possesses superhuman hearing[23] and strength. Piccolo's Chōkyoshinjutsu (超巨身術 Super Large Body Technique?, "Super Giantification Spell" in Viz media) allows him to become gigantic to the point where he is capable of reaching mountain-like heights,[24] though it is unclear if these are his restrictions. He also has the ability to conjureobjects such as garments and a blade,[25] including his cape and turban outfit[26][27][28] as well as a very largesandglass.[29] Among Piccolo's known psionic skills, he is able to communicate telepathically with select individuals. Thus, this enables him to read minds[30] and mentally contact others nearby.[31] In one instance, he alerts Trunks and Goten of Buu's proximity to the dimension where the two were training.[32]

Like many other characters in Dragon Ball, Piccolo has the ability of flight through the technique called Bukū-jutsu (舞空術lit. Air dance technique?). He also possesses an attack called the Bakurikimaha (爆裂魔波 lit . Exploding Wave?, "Destructive Wave" in the English dub), which is fired with one hand being supported by the other. One of Piccolo's most powerful attacks is the Makankōsappō (魔貫光殺砲 lit. Demonic Screw Light Cannon?, "Special Beam Cannon" in the English dub and "Light of Death" in Viz media) an attack that is expelled from Piccolo's index and middle fingers.[33][34]Unlike most energy-based attacks in Dragon Ball, the potent Makankōsappō pierces its targets like a drill rather than enveloping them or exploding on contact. Piccolo's ultimate attack in the video games he has appeared in is called Renzoku Sen Kōdan (連続閃光弾 lit. Repeated Flash Bullets, translated also as "Hellzone Grenade"?), which involves firing off many orbs of energy that float around the opponent. Piccolo then squeezes his hand to make all the orbs converge onto the opponent, exploding on contact. Piccolo also possesses the ability of "Scatter Shot" in which he fires many different chienergy blasts shot from one hand at the same time. Piccolo is also seen possessing an attack called the Masenkō (魔閃光 lit. Demon Flash?), which Piccolo teaches to his pupil Gohan. Another move Piccolo is seen to have is the Gekiretsu Kodan (激烈光弾 lit. Violent Light Grenade?, "Light Grenade" in the English dub) which is conjured by putting his hands on his chest, gathering energy and then releasing it outwards. One of Piccolo's less frequently used techniques is the ability to fire energy rays from his eyes (similar to "heat vision"), which he first uses against Krillin's energy attack during their match in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, then later against Goku in the finals, and again when he trains Gohan in the Saiyan Saga.

Piccolo can also perform the "Namekian Fusion" which he does with Nail on the distant Planet Namek to confront Frieza and with Kami to confront the androids as a super namek, each time greatly increased Piccolo's power level (the first time enough to clash toe-and-toe with Friza's second form, and the latter he become much more powerful than an unmastered super saiyan.).[35]
