Pickle by Quirkilicious Pickle by Quirkilicious
Piccolo, aka Junior. I know he's named after an instrument but vegetables are so much more fun.

Didn't really have time for this (major projects due next week) so I rushed it down as a warm-up (Little over 2 hours?) after I woke up from a nap.

Aren't like half of the DBZ characters named after some food or category of food?

Ex: Vegeta= Vegetable
I think saiyan is an anagram of the word "yasai" with an "n" added. Yasai means vegetable.

Weird, huh? :)

Awesome pic, but, ops, correction for both you and Kuroi Tsuki... all the characters FROM PLANET VEGETA are named after vegetables, even the real name of Goku, Kakarot stands for Carrot. The other names come from different sources: Piccolo and his vomited minions' names comew from musical instruments (drum, piano, cymbal...). Bulma's Family are underwear (bloomers, bra, trunks...).

Oh, and Goku, Gohan, Goten... are related to wind, cloud and sky (not sure the order or the correction of this, and there's a japanese word similar to gohan that means breakfast). And there's the fridge family: Frieza (freezer), Coola (Cooler) and King Cold.

It really is pickle, so many people don't realize that.

English word: Pickle
Engrish word: ぴっくる (pi~kulu)
DBZ name change: ぴころ (pikolo)
English version: piccolo.

Piccolo actually refers to the instrument of the same name, not a vegetable.

Piccolo has 5 fingers in DBZ, and here it looks like he's using the Special Beam Canon, which is a DBZ move XD
Then again, Akira changed his whole design a little from DB to DBZ (the fingers) and again after the fight with Nappa (the pink on his body). I kinda wonder why but meh...

No actually Toriyama doesn't have much to do with the 'db' 'dbz' sectioning, that was just the anime. Toriyama only wrote the manga, which is consistently 'Dragon ball' from front to back, along with Piccolo's four fingers. I only watched the anime recently and I didn't know they gave him five fingers there at the time I wrote this comment. But thanks, I didn't know the English name for that move.

Warm-up, rush, rough. WHATEVER; it's awesome and I'm so glad you took my ramblings a few pics back seriously. His face, his claws. 8D

I pity whoever's at the end of that attack. *watches with popcorn*

This move had like, one bad-ass moment in the entire series (killing Raditz and Goku). THEY MADE IT SEEM BETTER THAN THE KAMEHAMEHA, WHY WAS IT DOWNPLAYED ;3;

Piccolo was downplayed, period: we only ever got to see all his cool abilities once; Arm-stretching, growing HUGE, splitting himself in two, the Makankosappo/Special Beam Cannon....

He got some kickass fights (17 vs Piccolo, Cell vs Piccolo HECK YES) even without the special moves, but STILL! We saw his 'regenerative' abilties more than his special attack, that's so not right. >_<
