Piccolo Daimao, "The Great Demon King Piccolo") is the evil half of the Namekian that removed his evil in order to become the guardian of the Earth; this negative energy took on a physical form, becoming a cast-off being. He and the good half, Kami
, are linked, so if one dies, the other will as well. After being formed, he designates himself as the Great Demon King and begins to terrorize the world. He is eventually imprisoned by Mutaito, the master of Kame-Sennin and Tsuru-Sennin, in a rice cooker by the suicidal Mafū-ba
"Demon Seal" or "Evil Containment Wave") technique. After being released by Pilaf
, he attempts to kill anyone that could possibly seal him again (including Kame-Sennin and Chaozu) and uses the Dragon Balls to restore his youth before destroying Shenlong
, rendering them useless. He then takes over the King of the World's palace and has the King announce him as his successor, before being confronted by Goku, who, in their second battle, punches a large hole through his abdomen. Before dying, he regurgitates the egg containing his reincarnation, Piccolo Jr.
, in order to pursue his revenge. He is voiced by Takeshi Aono
in Japanese, Scott McNeil
in the Ocean dub, and Christopher Sabat
in the Funimation dub. Piccolo Daimao also appears as the main antagonist of the American live-action film Dragonball Evolution
, where he is portrayed by James Marsters
; his voiced was dubbed over by Hōchū Ōtsuka
in the Japanese version of the film.
