U06 Saonel

Saonel's full apearance

Due to being the same race, Saonel's appearance is very similar to Piccolo's except he wears clothing more similar to that of Nail's. Saonel's green skin color has more of a blue influence, a pine green color instead of the standard green color.


Like his teammate Pilina, Saonel seems to be a dirty fighter at times, as shown when he and Pilina attempted to ambush an exhausted Goku.


Dragon Ball Super

Universe Survival Saga

Main article: Universe Survival Saga During the struggle between Jiren and Goku's Universe 7's Spirit Bomb, Saonel was seen clashing with Biarra, while standing next to Pilina, who was fighting Catopesra.

Later, Saonel and Pilina sneaked up behind a weakened Goku and attempted to launch a surprise attack on him, but the two were stopped by Piccolo and Gohan, who challenged them to a fair fight. Saonel had the edge against Piccolo, but Gohan intervened and Piccolo seized the opportunity to strike, blasting Saonel away. Pilina saved Saonel by breaking Piccolo's ki blast and the two pairs of fighters regrouped, ready to continue their battle.


Saonel, alongside Pilina, are the two strongest Namekians in Universe 6.

Saonel was able to briefly fight on par with Piccolo and gain an advantage over him. However, he was knocked away by Piccolo's energy wave when Gohan caught his hand. Saonel and Pilina appeared to have an advantage over Piccolo and base Gohan, as the two from Universe 7 where panting from the fight while the Universe 6 pair showed no signs of being tired.
