 Character Description
Nail is a fictional character from Dragonball Z.
A noble Namekian who spent his life protecting the Namek Guru. Although he was very strong when first introduced, Frieza easily overpowered him. Later, he permanently merged himself into Piccolo so he may be granted with enough strength to rise up against Frieza.
 Plot Involvement
During the Frieza Saga, Nail has to fight Frieza in order to stop him from getting the Dragon Balls for himself. Even though Frieza was in his lowest power level, Nail was defeated by him. Nail tells Frieza that their Battle was just to delay him from getting them. Frieza then leaves Nail to die.
Shortly afterwards a newly resurrected Piccolo Jr. arrives and finds the defeated Namekian. Nail is still able to speak, and asks Piccolo to fuse with him. Piccolo agrees, but is skeptical of Nail's motives. Piccolo's Power Increases Dramatically after fusing with Nail, allowing him to fight Frieza's Second form on equal terms.
