Giant Form (巨大化) is a transformation used by some Namekians, Annin and Hatchiyack (in Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen). The transformation causes the user to grow to enormous proportions, reaching a size of nearly ten times their original size and increasing their power by an unspecified multiple.

Great Namek

It is quite likely that any Namekian is capable of initiating this transformation, provided that they know how, as both Lord Slug and Piccolo were capable of transforming in this way. Piccolo transformed like this once in the manga and twice in the anime. He first transformed during his fight with Goku in the Piccolo Jr. Saga. He then transformed even bigger, but found this form to be ultimately ineffective against Goku (this was in both the anime and manga). He transformed a second time (only in the anime) to counter Super Garlic Jr. (the Garlic Jr. Saga was an anime only filler saga), and Piccolo found the technique to be very effective against Garlic Jr., as despite his greatly increased size and strength, he did not sacrifice speed for the power-up and remained just as fast as he was before he transformed. He even went on to tell Garlic Jr., "You can't sacrifice speed for power, not against me." This was not the case for Garlic Jr., whose enlargement came at the cost of speed.

Lord Slug transformed into a Great Namek in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, after Goku attacked him using his "Super Saiyan" power.

King Piccolo was also abnormally tall for a Namekian, and could also increase his size somewhat, as displayed when becoming enraged after Goku kneed him in the face with a boost from his Power Pole. During this, King Piccolo's strength and power increased, but he was unable to destroy Goku.

Appearances in Video Games


Piccolo takes this form in a cutscene in Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Kakusei-Hen. Annin appears in this form in Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans.

Lord Slug is playable in this form in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. He also appears in this form in Dragon Ball Heroes, as both a boss and a character that can be summoned.

Piccolo, as well as King Piccolo, use it during one of their combo in Super Dragon Ball Z.

Namekians are able to perform this transformation in the computer game Dragon Ball Online. The Namekian's giant form transformation was called Great Namek in this video game.
