A character that has been almost forgotten in the Dragon Ball world is Kid Piccolo. Yes, he is just the child version of the former evil Namekian, however; most fans do forget that Piccolo was only four eight years old when the Saiyan's attacked earth. Although, it seems not all fans have forgotten the strongest Namekian in Universe 7 with a new figurine of the little green man.
Actually, these Bandai figurines showcase some of the best characters from the Dragon Ball world as children, with Goku, Piccolo, Krillin, Chi-Chi, Gohan and Vegeta appearing as little kids. Many fans forget that Piccolo was once evil, with the Demon King Piccolo giving birth to the current Piccolo just before death. The young child began to train in order to avenge his father's death and then challenged Goku in the World Martial Arts Tournament.

Goku defeated him and then Dragon Ball Z began, with Piccolo needing to train Goku's son in Gohan and teaming up with the other Z-Fighters, in order to defeat the Saiyan's. Piccolo was not a good guy at this point, he just needed to defeat a common enemy. However, while training Gohan and fighting alongside his former enemies, Piccolo changed and became the reliable hero he is today.
Unfortunately, Piccolo isn't the badass he once was, as in the past he always was on par with the Saiyan's and made some epic appearances. However, after the Cell saga, everything went downhill for Piccolo, with Dragon Ball Super fans hoping that this could be rectified soon. Fans have seen Gohan bounce from relevant to irrelevant multiple times and are hoping that this will happen to Piccolo during the Tournament of Power, which is what fans are currently up to in Dragon Ball Super.
