Giant Form (巨大化) is a transformation used by some Namekians, Annin and Hatchiyack (in Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen). Bio-Broly also takes on a massive form, due to the Culture Fluid, towards the end of the movie Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly. The transformation causes the user to grow to enormous proportions, reaching a size of nearly ten times their original size and increasing their power by an unspecified multiple.
Piccolo transforms like this once in the manga and twice in the anime. He transforms during his fight with Goku in the Piccolo Jr. Saga, and then grows even bigger, but found this form to be ultimately ineffective against Goku (in both the manga and anime). According to Goku, this does not actually increase Piccolo Jr's power, though it does make him heavier and more durable. Piccolo uses the technique a second time, growing slightly, to counter Super Garlic Jr. (only in the anime, the Garlic Jr. Saga abeing an anime only saga), and he finds the technique to be very effective against Super Garlic Jr. as despite his greatly increased size and strength, he does not sacrifice speed for the power-up and remains just as fast as he was before he transformed. He even goes on to tell Garlic Jr., "You can't sacrifice speed for power, not against me." This was not the case for Garlic Jr., whose enlargement came at the cost of speed.
King Piccolo is very tall for a Namekian and he can increase his size somewhat, as displayed when becoming enraged after Goku kneed him in the face with a boost from his Power Pole. During this, King Piccolo's strength and power are increased, but he is still unable to destroy Goku. Grand Elder Guru in the manga/anime series and Grand Elder Moori in Dragon Ball Online also are much larger than most Namekians, but their ability to use the Great Namek form was never confirmed.
Appearances in Video Games
Piccolo, as well as King Piccolo, use it during one of their combos in Super Dragon Ball Z.
Namekians are able to perform this transformation in the computer game Dragon Ball Online; their giant form transformation is called Great Namek in this game. Also in Dragon Ball Online, the antagonist Towa displays the ability to transform characters into giants; she first attempts this ability on Cui, but had not perfected it and causes him to shrink slightly instead. She perfects her ability shortly after, and uses it on Dodoria, Zarbon, Recoome, Frog Ginyu, and several other Planet Trade Organization soldiers.
