Super Kami Guru (最長老 lit. Grand Elder) is the eldest and wisest of the Namekians, and the creator of the Namekian Dragon Balls.

In the AnimeEdit

Guru (called simply "Grand Elder" in the original Japanese version) is the only survivor of a cataclysmic event in Planet Namek's past. He single handedly repopulated the planet through the Namekian ability to asexually reproduce through eggs. By the time Frieza and the Z-fighters arrive on Namek, Guru is very old and near death. He helps out the Z-fighters in their battle against Frieza and his men by unlocking their hidden fighting power. He eventually dies from a broken heart after Frieza kills the rest of the Namekians, but is revived by the Earth Dragon Balls. He passes his title of Grand Elder and ownership of the Dragon Balls on to the Namekian Moori, before peacefully passing away.

Guru is considered to be very wise, and has a kind and caring personality, to the point of dying from the sadness of losing his children. As a member of Namek's Dragon Clan, he has the ability to create wish-granting Dragon Balls. He has also shown the ability to unlock a person's "hidden potential", granting them vastly increased power, or, in the case of Dende, new abilities and techniques.

In the Abridged Series, Guru is portrayed as a slightly senile, demanding old man who constantly abuses his power. Most of this is directed at his bodyguard Nail, who is regularly made to do degrading tasks such as fighting birds or cleaning Guru's jowls. Furthermore, Guru is hinted at having caused numerous atrocities, such as when he led the Namekians through the peril of a great drought and the purge of the albino Namekians. He does have a softer side, though. He likes to keep in touch with his brother, Lord Slug, whom he exiled from Namek. Guru sent him a letter advising him to visit Earth, inadvertently leading Slug to also attack the planet for it's Dragon Balls. Guru is also known to be very vain. When told that the elder Namekian of Earth was named Kami (which is Japanese for "God"), Guru immediately declared that Kami was a pretentious prick and dubbed himself as "Super Kami Guru" - though just Guru for short. He is also very knowledgeable with human popular culture and gets upset when his fellow Namekians don't understand

the references.

Guru seems to enjoy messing around with his subjects and visitors. He gives Krillin, Gohan, and Dende power boosts. Krillin's wasn't big, revealing his "full potential", Gohan's was given following a rather pedophile-like speech, and Dende's was given completely by surprise. He refused to give the power-up to Nail, who he later gives a motivational speech to in order to encourage him to fight a losing battle against Freeza. Once Nail was gone, Guru admitted that he  might have stood a chance if Guru had trained him in the "New way". Finally, once Porunga was summoned, Guru sensed it and allowed himself to die just before the final wish was able to be granted, believing it would be a "real dick move".

When he was revived he thought the cause of the lava was global warming and called for Nail. After all living beings that were killed by Freeza and his men (not including by Vegeta, so the Namekians he killed stayed dead), were brought to Earth by the Namekian Dragon Balls. in belief that he was dying, Super Kami Guru revealed to the remaining namekians that he caused the drought that almost killed out the Namekians by drinking all of the water and blaming it on the albino Namekians. After Guru found that he wasn't about to die and failed to commit suicide, the enraged Namekians brutally killed him off-screen; much to the horror of Gohan, Bulma, Piccolo, and Vegeta. In the Season 2 finale, it is revealed that Moori has become the Grand Elder after eating Guru.
