This article is about the Namekian version. For other uses, see Mystic Attack.

Demon Hand[4] is the unique ability of Piccolo, thanks to his Demon Clan heritage.[2] Using his regenerative abilities he alters the structure of his arms to stretch.[2]

Some media depicts this ability - under the name Namek Finger - as a racially exclusive variation of the Mystic Attack used by Namekians to stretch their arms in order to grab and attack opponents.

Overview

MystAttk(23rdT)

Piccolo using Demon Hand in the anime

A Namekian user stretches their arms by expanding and contracting the cells in their body through willpower.[1]

This allows them to grab and attack opponents that are out of the normal reach of the user's unstretched arms.

This technique was first used by Piccolo during his match against Krillin at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament.

It is also used by Lord Slug in the film Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug. He also uses it as part of his Power of Darkness technique.

It is also used by Piccolo in the film Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge while fighting Salza.

In Dragon Ball Super, Piccolo uses the technique to wrap his arm around Frost to constrict his opponent in a snake-like manner.

Nail using Namek Finger on 1st form Frieza in Xenoverse 2

Namek Finger was first named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 where it appears as a Super Skill used by Nail and Lord Slug. It can also be obtained and used by a Namekian Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) as it is exclusive to Namekians. However, randomly generated Majin computers are able to use the skill, but in the skill description it only shows Namekians being the only race to use the skill.

Lord Slug also uses it to perform his Darkness Rush (Ranged) Ultimate Skills as it is exclusive to Namekians (non-Namekian characters can unlock Darkness Rush (Melee) which replaces the Namek Finger grab with a forward charge grab).

In Xenoverse 2, after grabbing the opponent the user pulls the opponent towards them to deliverer a gut punch.

In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, it appears as an attack used by Piccolo under the name Demon Hand.

Trivia

  • This technique is related to the Great Namekian form as both techniques involve the Namekian user manipulating their bodies cells to cause their body to grow and/or stretch. It is possible that the Great Namekian form is just an more advanced version of this process (as the user's body grows in size instead of just part of them).
  • Namek Finger can be used while in the Great Namekian state as demonstrated by Slug in Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug and by the Great Namekian Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) (as their strong attack) in Xenoverse 2.
