How did Piccolo get his new form?

There are three reasons Piccolo was able to attain his Orange Piccolo form. First of all, he is Namekian, so he must have had the ability to do this transformation in his genes. The 2nd reason is he used the Dragon Balls to wish to have his full potential unlocked, similar to what Elder Kai did for Gohan and Krillin in Namek. And the 3rd reason is Piccolo had an emotional event that caused him to actually transform. During his battle with Gamma 2, he was in a tight spot and losing, which could have meant Gohan and Pan could have been killed.

Why did Piccolo turn Orange?

Piccolo turned orange to signify his new power boost. It’s a long-established tradition in Dragon Ball that when characters get significant power boosts, they change their appearance, often colour. Just think of the yellow Super Saiyan or the Golden Frieza. So while we don’t know why Orange was chosen, we do know it signifies Piccolo is now one powerful dude.

Orange Piccolo – Our Thoughts

As we mentiond at the beginning of this article, we have always been big fans of Piccolo. At the start of Dragon Ball Z, he was pretty much on par with Goku, but he always fell behind. But every time he caught up, even a little, like when he fused with Nail or when he fused with Kami, we were cheering at our TVs. And seeing Piccolo once against getting a power boost and being the actual hero of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was AMAZING. Here’s hoping Piccolo doesn’t stop at Orange, and gets a Red, Pink, Blue, Purple and White transformations, and finally beat Son Goku in a fight.
