The Nameccians are an extraterrestrial species that exist in the 6th and 7th Universe.


History

According to Champa, the Nameccians of the 7th Universe shaved off pieces of the original Super Dragon Balls to create the original Nameccian Dragon Balls.[2]

Overview

Life Cycle

Nameccians have very efficient growth, unlike humans. They grow from hatch-lings into teenagers in just three years and reach adulthood a fairly short amount of time afterwards. At this point, their aging slows to a crawl, enabling them to live up to around 500 years before dying of old age. Even as hatchlings, they are fully aware of their surroundings and do not require parents to nurture them as humans do.

Societal Structure

Nameccian society is built around village centers; each village is scattered across the surface of their planet, fairly far from each other. The villages in turn are led by their Elders, seemingly the Eldest Nameccian in the village at the time, and these Elders in question hold one of the seven Nameccian Dragon Balls. At the head of the Nameccian society as a whole was the Oldest Elder, who would later pass his position on to Moori.

Individuals appear to be split up into castes of the Warrior Clan, the Dragon Clan, and those who till the land — though Nail was claimed to be the last true Nameccian warrior. The Dragon Clan are Nameccians who create Dragon Balls, and can have their lives tied to an existing set when the previous creator passes on. Warrior Nameccians are as the name implies, powerful Nameccians with combat strength above the average. And the Nameccians who till the land are those who grow the trees that are vital to Nameccians to provide a stable ecosystem for their survival.

Appetite and Diet

Nameccians are creatures who do not require solid food to survive — though the key word should be taken as 'require' — and due to their biology, can survive fine just by drinking water. In spite of this, Nameccians can eat solid food without problems, as Piccolo has been seen eating food without problems.


Note: The following contents are "A-Canon". Please read Canon policy for further information.
In the anime, a young Piccolo had been seen eating fish for food.[3] As an adult, he also complained about having nothing but fish to eat for a prolonged period of time. It is implied being born on Earth influenced Piccolo's eating habits.

Personality 

Nameccians are known to be traditionally peaceful individuals, who rarely hearken towards violence unless provoked. They are seemingly content with their lives, which were devoid of conflict before Freeza arrived. The tyrant noted that he had never seen a race quite so stubborn before, as the Nameccians displayed a great willingness to die for their planet and their people.

Appearance

Nameccians are green-skinned humanoids, whose distinctive features include their forehead antennae, sharp canines, pointed ears, and long nails, as well as pink patches across their skin. They all possess stern eyes, but their facial features and structure can vary as often as an Earthling or Saiyan. As Nameccians age, their skin begins to wrinkle, and the pink patches on their skin begin to change hue to orange. Despite being agender, all Nameccians have builds that would correlate with males in species such as Earthlings.

Abilities

Physical Abilities 

Nameccians are beings possess a natural resilience and strange biology. It isn't known if they are naturally stronger than Earthlings while untrained, but those who do train to become warriors have physical strength that does exceed most Earthlings. Depending on their level of training, they have shown the ability to easily keep up with Saiyans at early developmental stages in their lives — as the elderly Piccolo Diamaō and the young Piccolo Jr. were able to match the child and teenage Gokū with ease.

Furthermore, Nameccians have a biological ability that allows them to manipulate their arms[4], stretching them beyond normal limits to attack an opponent from a distance. They can also gigantify themselves, another technique available due to their unique bodily composition.[5] They can also assimilate other Nameccians, though the process must be willing on both parties.[6]

Notably, Nameccians do not feel cold as easily as Earthlings.[7]

Healing

Nameccians have a form of healing that is unique among biological species — the ability to mend their wounds through Regeneration. Nameccians are the only species shown to possess this form of healing naturally, and by Piccolo's own admission, can recover from any wound so long as their head remains intact. Despite this boon, it is not without its limitations; a Nameccian who regenerates places stress on their body, and when the limb is regenerated, their combat power drops, and stays there.

In Other Universes 

In the 6th Universe, Nameccians are shown to exist. They look virtually identical to their 7th Universe counterparts, except more muted in colouration.

Trivia

  • In the English dub of Dragon Ball Z, the term "Namek" is used in reference to a member of the Nameccian race as often as "Namekian" is used.
