Overview[edit]


DBFZ Piccolo Icon.png Piccolo
"I'm neither Kami nor Piccolo. I'm simply a Namekian who has forgotten his own name."
Lore:The spawn of the notorious Demon King from whom he takes his name, Piccolo Jr. (also taking the name Majunior on some occasions) was once one of Goku's most vicious rivals. After defeating Raditz, the Namekian warrior would go on to become Gohan's mentor and martial arts instructor, in time also becoming a surrogate father for Goku's son. Thanks to Gohan's influence, Piccolo would renounce his evil ways and become a firm ally of Goku and protector of the planet Earth.

Playstyle[edit]

Playstyle
DBFZ Piccolo Icon.png Piccolo is a mix-up monster with terrifying tricks.
Pros Cons
  • Air-to-Air: Disjointed air buttons allow him to challenge aerial options like superdash very well.
  • Mix-up: Strong high/low with additional moves such as aerial command grabs and cross-ups.
  • Hellzone Grenade: Enables Piccolo's mix-up game to shine, and is extremely strong when blocked in the air.
  • Incredible Corner Pressure: His wide arsenal of tools thrive in the corner as they become quite suffocating with the amount of options he possesses.
  • Resource Eater: Needs to spend meter to get a sliding knockdown mid-screen, and can also be too reliant with resources for damage and neutral.
  • Vs. Guard Cancel: His primary pressure tool, Hellzone Grenade, is guard cancellable.
  • Command Grabs: His command grabs are very slow and don't lead to much damage.
  • No Beam: Lacks a full-screen projectile entirely, and Homing Energy Blasts can be superdashed through.

  • A good normal since the fastest is 6F on average for other characters.
  • Good for pressure due to quick startup and recovery.
5LL 700 All - 9 3 15 -2 -
  • Used to hit confirm after the first 5L. You're most likely to go into 2M in the corner to get them off their feet & airborne for longer combos.
  • Piccolo's highest damaging starter, and most impractical.
  • Also good for stagger pressure due to it's advantage on block.
  • Pushes Piccolo forwards.
5LLL 1000 All U3+ 15 3 18 -5 -
  • You mostly want to avoid this normal unless it's in a post-vanish combo.

800 Throw U2 28 7 19 - -
  • On hit, can only be followed up with 5H, 2H, 6S, vanish, or supers.

A pretty far reaching command grab. Good for opening people up on the ground but 5S trajectory will only go along the ground so be careful of people trying to jump out and/or approach from the air.

  • Your average low, has fairly decent range.

Piccolo's standard mixup tool after an IAD. There are times where you'll be using 2M instead for it's speed (or lack thereof), but this is what you want midscreen.

  • Piccolo's best low normal.
  • Also has good range.

This is your primary Fuzzy mixup tool. It's speed and scaling lend it very well to being the other part of a very scary 50/50. More on that in Strategy.

Piccolo's 2H works just fine as an anti-air, you just really don't want it blocked. All of the cancel options have a gap, and most can be counter 2H'd.

500, 800 Airthrow U2 16 7 17 - -
  • Anti-air command grab with all the drawbacks of 5S.

Instead of going along the ground, Piccolo's arm goes upward at a 45 degree angle, making it great to snatch people out of the air. It has slow startup though so using it on reaction to an air approach probably won't work. It also leaves you open to ground approaches so be careful.

350*3 All - 16 11 23 -5 (-3 at max range) -
  • Piccolo fires a beam of energy from his antenna horizontally, reaching just barely past half screen.

This is the closest Piccolo has to a beam. It loses to beams, but it beats superdash.

400 High - 6 3 14 - -
  • Easily the best Air-to-Air in the game.

Part of what makes Piccolo a nightmare to deal with. The hitbox is quite disjointed and it's incredibly fast, not to mention it's easy to confirm with j.LL2H. A very strong tool for Piccolo that somewhat makes up for his unsafe 2H.

  • [] is on Dynamic hit only. This move doesn't have a Smash version.
  • Good air to air normal.
  • Knocks opponent into the air on ground hit, can still connect 2M

Unlike most j.Hs, Piccolo's j.H will knock the opponent away horizontally instead of downwards, making it not a great way to end your air combos. It's more useful as an air to air normal since it has good reach horizontally.

You'll want to learn how to confirm into this move from an air-to-air j.L, as it is Piccolo's primary way of discouraging jumps.

Ground L 900 All - 30 4 17 [33 no proximity] -2 -
  • Glides a short distance forward.
  • Reaching the opponent will make Piccolo move behind them and attack.
  • The attack is triggered based on proximity, it can and will whiff if the opponent is moving around.
  • Piccolo is fully vulnerable during this move, so it is extremely unsafe unless your opponent is blocking or recovering.
  • Inside a combo, all versions become extremely fast and can easily be used for an easy side swap.
Ground M 1000 All U1 31-42 (34 min midscreen) 6 17 [42 no proximity] -2 -
  • Glides almost fullscreen.
  • Cause a sliding knockdown on hit.

Ground L 900 All - 37 7 16 -1~-4 5-21 Guard Point, 22-27 Full OR until recovery on Guard Point Activation
  • Forces a ground tech the moment the opponent hits the ground.
  • All versions have guard point during the pose that blocks any strike and projectile that aren't throws or Supers. Getting hit during this pose will trigger the teleport immediately.
  • Normal version teleports in place, but counter version will track the opponent anywhere on screen.

Useful for punishing opponents who like to push buttons during blockstrings. However, it's their turn after they block it.

Ground M 1000 High D1 41 6 15 -2~-4 5-21 Guard Point, 22-27 Full OR until recovery on Guard Point Activation
  • Side switches even in the corner.
  • Both normal and counter version only track the opponent at close range.
  • Causes a pseudo sliding knockdown that can be followed up with Supers.

Can also be used during neutral to catch your opponent off-guard.

Ground H 1100 High D1 31-36 7 22 -10 1-15 Guard Point, 16-21~26 Full OR until recovery on Guard Point Activation
  • Faster version of L Demon Slicer that always tracks everywhere on screen.
  • Causes a sliding knockdown.

  • All air versions attack in place.
  • Causes a soft knockdown.
Air M 1000 High D1 19 Until Landing 16 - -
  • Causes a sliding knockdown.

Used as a corner combo ender. The downward momentum will also allow Piccolo to combo into Hellzone Grenade since he falls down to the ground faster than the opponent.

Air H 1500 All D1 15 Until Landing 16 - -
  • Causes a sliding knockdown.

The only way Piccolo can get a sliding knockdown from midscreen.

Piccolo fires a Ki Orb that tracks the opponent. Useful as a meaty attack.

Charged 700 All - 19 Projectile: 299 27 -6 (point blank) -
  • Bigger than uncharged version but travels slower.
  • Can be super dashed through.

Not very useful, since it deals the same amount of damage and it still loses to beam projectiles and super dashes.

  • Can be a good neutral tool to harass opponents in hard to reach areas.
  • Piccolo fires a second, charged energy blast shortly after the first.

Piccolo's assist is 2 blasts of his Homing Energy Blast special. It has the same shortcomings as normal ki blasts like being can be super dashed and other projectiles can easily destroy it, but its ability to home in on your opponent is useful since it'll allow you to harass your opponent in spaces that most other assists can't really cover well such as super jump height.

Can also enable aerial Dragon Rushes during combos anywhere once practiced/labbed properly, in the same vein as Gotenks A or Tien B as it homes in for a while.

260*12 All UDV 9+17 - 19 +65 9-10 Full
  • You can Z Change from Hellzone Grenade but not into it, however doing this cancels the attack and all of the remaining Ki Blasts instantly explode.
  • Very strong post snap or with lockdown assists (like Gotenks or Kid Buu).
  • Combos easily from beam assists and Bardock assists for easy damage and corner carry, plus a sliding knockdown if you haven't used your Dragon Rush.
  • Scales harshly. Minimum damage is 52*12.

Piccolo throws a volley of Ki Blasts near the opponent. After a delay, they become active and home in on the opponent, one-by-one.

  • Costs 3 bars
  • Has some invulnerable frames on startup
  • Minimum damage: 166*10 (1660)

Piccolo's level 3. Works similarly to other beam level 3's in that you don't get much pressure midscreen. In the corner you get a 236S setup, which allows for crossups.
