* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Piccolo, like all Namekians, has extremely sharp hearing, being able to hear people talking from hundreds of feet away, even in a crowded stadium. Yet, he doesn't experience any discomfort from loud noises, showing that he can control the sensitivity of his hearing and filter out mindless noise. Although the ''[[[[Anime/DragonBallZLordSlug Lord Slug]]]]'' film shows Piccolo and Namekians in general are greatly irritated by whistling, to the point where its preferable for them to tear their ears off rather than hear the sound.

** But not so much that he loses plot importance. He enters a period of CantCatchUp after the Cell Saga, where in he switches roles to TheMentor for the younger heroes. He gets a better deal in the movies though (if you consider them canon), where he usually at least gets to dispatch the BigBad's EliteMooks and, in two of them (''Anime/DragonBallZDeadZone Dead Zone]]'' and ''[[Anime/DragonBallZLordSlug Lord Slug]]''), he even saves the day.

** After Cell manages to disable one of his arms, Piccolo acts more hurt than he is so he can get Cell to lower his guard and tell him who he is. After Piccolo gets all the information he needs, he rips his damaged arm off and he regrows a new one. The ploy also gave him time to restore his strength.

Unfortunately, it also lets Cell know that ''he'' can regenerate too since he has Piccolo's cells.
