"Remember the little Namekian you passed on the way to Guru's? On his way to the humans with the password. By now, he's probably already there and they're about to summon the dragon. Haha! Yeah, if I had to guess your biggest mistake it would be not stopping him-- that or the purple lipstick."
— Nail taunting Freeza in "The Best Laid Plans of Saiyans and Nameks"

Nail (ネイル) is the bodyguard of Super Kami Guru and, at the point of Freeza's attack on Namek, the strongest Namekian alive. He later fuses with Piccolo, thus retaining the title of strongest Namekian.


In DragonBall Z Abridged, Nail was initially short tempered, impatient, and overall bored, which can be from being forced to do pointless and asinine tasks from Super Kami Guru. He is also shown to be very sarcastic and snarky, such as making fun of Vegeta's height during their first encounter.

After merging with Piccolo, Nail exhibits a more friendly and sociable personality, often conversing with him in light-hearted banters regarding miscellaneous things such as getting more apps in his head, building a house, etc.


Freeza SagaEdit

Sometime while Vegeta and Nappa are traveling to Earth, Nail wishes for something exciting to happen out of boredom, which inevitably leads to Freeza invading Namek in search for the Namekian DragonBalls.

Nail greets Dende, who arrives at Guru's home along with Krillin. Upon seeing Nail, Krillin address him as "Big Green" leading to Nail threatening to snap Krillin's neck if he calls him that again. Later on while Gohan gets his inner powers unlocked, Nail encounters Vegeta and starts arguing with him before getting interrupted by Guru. As Vegeta starts gloating about being the second strongest person on the planet, Guru informs them that five extremely strong - and incredibly flamboyant - are power levels approaching the planet, leading Vegeta to realize that Freeza has summoned the Ginyu Force.

Later on, Guru senses the Earthlings in danger and orders Nail to go help them, but Nail objects and points out that this would leave Guru unguarded. However Guru states that Dende will suffice as he dubs him the third strongest Namekian alive (in reality, they are the three last remaining Namekians left). Although Nail leaves Guru's house, he later returns as he states that all he did was repeatedly bang his head against the wall for twenty minutes.

Sometime later, Nail confronts Freeza, who came to Guru's house to obtain the secret password to activate the Namekian DragonBalls. After getting encouraged by Guru, Nail leads Freeza away from Guru to engage him in battle. One hour later, he and Freeza arrives at a place which Nail describes as his people's sacred battleground. As Freeza starts making racial remarks, Nail strikes him in the neck. However, Freeza appears completely unharmed and proceed to rip Nail's arm off. Nail then surprises Frieza by growing it right back, leading Frieza to immediately rip it off again. After ripping off Nail's arm at least 24 times, Nail attempts to blast Freeza at point-blank range, but has no effect. Freeza then asks Nail if he has ever heard the planet Vegeta with Nail saying "No", which was exactly what Freeza wants to hear when he asks someone else about Namek. Freeza then punched Nail in the face, knocking Nail down to the ground while laughing about finding satisfaction in doing "grunt work" himself. Surprisingly, Nail starts laughing as well, announcing that he has been distracting him the whole time while Dende heads over to the Earthlings to give them the actual password. Enraged, Freeza immediately departs at full speed back to his ship while leaving Nail to die.

Thanks to the Namekian DragonBalls, a newly resurrected Piccolo arrives on the Namek against his own will and encounters Nail's body. Nail initially speaks to Piccolo in a Namekian language, confusing Piccolo as he believes that Nail's so broken that he is unable to speak correctly. However, Nail reveals that he can speak English and informs Piccolo about a fusing technique that's considered forbidden even amongst their most sacred clans. Wanting to maliciously abuse the technique, Piccolo places his hand on Nail and merges with him, with Nail residing inside Piccolo's head.

Nail later watches Piccolo fight Freeza in his second form, being impressed on how Piccolo is seemingly gaining the upper hand. By the time Freeza proceeds to transform into his third form, Nail chimes in and starts complaining about Piccolo not having any other apps inside his head besides Minesweeper.

By the time Piccolo and everyone else except Goku and Freeza get sent to planet Earth, Guru starts calling out for Nail, claiming he can sense him nearby while Nail pleads to Piccolo of not telling Guru where he actually is.

  • Since Episode 25, all his episodes are voice overs


  • Nail lost his arm 24 times to Freeza.
  • Nail's hidden potential was never unlocked by Super Kami Guru.
  • Prior to fusing, Nail stated was supposedly was supposidely supposed to fade into Piccolo's subconscious. This never came to pass however, resulting in Nail's mind effectively existing within Piccolo's head. Although this effectively meant Piccolo was no longer lonely, he is often aggravated by Nail's presence.
    • Nail tends to distract Piccolo in heated battles with observations or otherwise unhelpful banter. At one point, this accidentally allowed Freeza to reach his third form.
    • Nail usually wins in arguments against Piccolo.
    • It was revealed in episode 40 that Nail somehow put a pool table in Piccolo's head.
    • Upon fusing with Kami, Piccolo was momentarily surprised to find both Nail and Kami's presence gone, briefly wondering if he had been finally freed of the former, until both revealed they had been toying with him all along, now simultaniously existing in Piccolo's mind. After this, Nail and Kami often converse with one another, to Piccolo's annoyance.
  • His name "Big Green" actually comes from the AB Group dub, in which Piccolo is named "Big Green" (surprisingly, even though the dub is based off of the French dub, his name should be "Little Heart".)
