Piccolo vs Tanjiro: Who Is More Powerful?

Here we talking about the fight between two anime characters, Piccolo vs Tanjiro. They both have more power and abilities but now we have to find out the more powerful among them.

Piccolo vs Tanjiro


Feature of Piccolo

A tall, powerful Namekian, Piccolo. He shares a lot of similarities with his father/incarnation but is visibly shorter and a little bit slimmer. In addition, he has a stronger facial structure with a straighter nose, a chin that is more rounded, and less prominent cheekbones. In the Dragon Ball manga, Piccolo only has four fingers with black nails, however, in the anime and Dragon Ball Super manga, he has five fingers with white nails. He has multiple pink (in the anime) and yellow (in the manga) patches on his arms.

Piccolo typically wears and trains in weighted gear, just like Goku. When his cape is damaged fighting Frieza in his second form and when it is damaged by Lord Slug’s goons, the series shows that there is weighted padding underneath the cape, which is not weighted itself. Piccolo Jr.’s attire evolved over the course of the series until the day he fought the Androids. The neckline of the clothing lowers to resemble Goku’s attire, but without Goku’s own undershirt. Piccolo dons a red obi in the manga, most of the movies, and several video games, not a sky-blue one.

Piccolo’s personality

Regardless of his allegiance throughout the franchise, Piccolo has always had a harsh, if not unpleasant, demeanor and a callous attitude toward others. Piccolo is content to be alone and rarely grins. Piccolo is regularly spotted drinking thawed ice water in the north and relaxing in peaceful settings. When he fights, he exhibits a pronounced cockiness, though. In addition, he has a tendency to be quite straightforward and honest in his assessments of other people and situations. In addition to being known for his incredibly accurate and successful fighting techniques, Piccolo is also demonstrated to be a very cerebral and tactical fighter, able to see through the strengths and weaknesses of his foes to craft winning strategies.

Piccolo initially inherited from his father/former self the desire to rule the world and defeat Goku. He had many of his father’s wicked traits, including a violent and destructive nature and a complete disregard for anything other than success, and was desperate to establish his superiority. This was demonstrated in his fight with Goku in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, where he displayed absolutely no pity for his adversary, dismembering Goku and laughing sadistically as he did so, reasoning that it was necessary given what Goku had done to his father. Despite this, Piccolo did show some discipline and honor when he unpromptedly saved a woman and daughter from falling objects during a storm.

Power of Piccolo

Anime & Manga

With Grand Elder Guru describing Piccolo (or rather, his previous self the Nameless Namekian) as a prodigy amongst prodigies and even strong enough to stand up to Super Saiyans, Piccolo is the most powerful Namekian in Universes 7 and 6. When he fuses with Nail to confront Frieza and when he merges with Kami to resurrect the Nameless Namekian to battle the Androids, Piccolo has twice been the strongest Z Fighter in the series. He often has a power position below Goku and Vegeta but above Tien and Krillin for the rest of the series. In the anime, Piccolo starts retraining Gohan after defeating Frieza. In the anime, Piccolo had surpassed Gohan’s base power by the time of the Tournament of Destroyers because only Gohan displayed tiredness following about.

Equipment & Abilities of Piccolo

Senzu Bean

mystical beans with extraordinary rejuvenating qualities.

Bansho Fan

a legendary fan capable of producing a monsoon, a thunderstorm, and a typhoon all in the space of three waves. Piccolo uses the Bansho Fan to calm a storm close to a volcanic area in Dragon Ball Z Side Story: True Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans – Earth Saga.

Weighted Clothing

clothing that has weights integrated into the design to make it heavier than regular clothing.

Features of Tanjiro

Tanjiro is a young boy who is short for his age, has tanned skin, and has an athletic build. He has ruffled burgundy hair that is combed back to expose his forehead and wide, dark eyes with white pupils that appear dark pink around the lower section of their irises. He also has a birthmark on the top left of his forehead, which initially appeared as a graze until his fight with the Hand Demon during the Final Selection Arc, after which it morphed into a large, dark red scar. His hands are noticeably tougher than those of people his age as a result of his rigorous training under Sakonji Urokodaki.

Tanjiro is dressed in a checkered dark turquoise and black patterned haori over his standard Demon Hunter uniform, which consists of a dark brown gakuran jacket, a white belt around his waist, and baggy pants that extend into tabi socks, as well as zri and white cloth wrapped around his calves. He also wears hanafuda earrings with a red sun symbol and carries a large wooden box on his back, which houses his sister during the day.

Tanjiro’s personality

Tanjiro is naturally gentle and has been described as having very gentle eyes by others. He is very determined and will not give up once he has a goal to achieve; the best example of this is his never-ending quest to find a cure for Nezuko. Even though he is relatively strong on his own, Tanjiro isn’t afraid to seek assistance from others when necessary. He is fiercely protective of his friends, but especially of his younger sister. Despite his kindness and understanding, Tanjiro has a limit to his tolerance and dislikes rudeness, as he is easily annoyed by Zenitsu Agatsuma’s constant whining and angered by Inosuke Hashibira’s barbaric actions.

Abilities & Power of Tanjiro

Sense of Smell

Tanjiro has a sense of smell that borders on superhuman. Tanjiro was known in a village even before becoming a Demon Slayer as the boy with an extremely strong sense of smell comparable to that of hounds, bears, and sharks, among others. He can detect even the most subtle scents and track their location with frightening accuracy over long distances. It is strong enough for him to detect the ‘opening thread,’ a slight pause in an enemy’s movement that allows him to strike.

Recovering Breathing

Tanjiro’s technique for recovering from fatigue and stiff muscles that prevent his body from moving, which he uses to overcome the whiplash caused by using Hinokami Kagura techniques twice in a row.

Hard Skull

Tanjiro was born with a hard skull, which he inherited from his mother. His head is extremely durable, to the point where a single headbutt can cause immediate damage to his opponents. One example is when he stuns Sanemi, the Wind Hashira.

Endurance & Immense Stamina

Tanjiro has incredible stamina and endurance, which he demonstrated before becoming a Demon Slayer by training in a mountain with little to no oxygen for many days, dodging booby traps, running and traversing through it up and down, and improving his swordsmanship skills and physique all while under these harsh conditions.

Piccolo vs Tanjiro: who will win?

If we compare both the Anime then the result will be in the winning Piccolo because Piccolo is more powerful than Tanjiro. Tanjiro has a hard skull but Piccolo has a tall height and four fingers with black long nails which are used for the destruction of the skull.
