It seems that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is as true to the show as in the anime, based on Piccolo’s eating habits.

Namekian physiology is still a bit of a mystery, but we know that these slug-like aliens don’t consume nutrients in the same way that humans do. Instead of placing prepared food items in their mouth, chewing, swallowing, and then digesting through stomach acids and a complicated series of tubes, they somehow gain all the nutrients they need just by drinking water.

Which is sometimes a problem for Namekians on Earth. Since humans (and Saiyans) consider meal times to be an important social function, Piccolo is forced to endure the sight of various humanoids masticating away while he just sits there with a glass of water, arms crossed.

Redditor Clearin noticed this detail in the new Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and thought it interesting enough to share on the r/GamingDetails subreddit.

While Namekians don’t have to eat to sustain themselves, they do have the capacity to eat. At various times in the anime, Piccolo mentions having eating conventional foodstuffs before. In Episode 125 - Goku’s Ordeal, Piccolo complains about the fact that he and Gohan have been eating fish for a whole week straight after Gohan caught one in the river.


Piccolo can also consume Senzu Beans, otherwise how else would you keep his big green carcass available for combat?

Eating is actually an enormously important function in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Gathering food, cooking, and finally consuming prepared meals will level-up your characters' stats, and all players will spend some time looking for food items at one point or another in the game.

If you're looking for Royal Tomatoes or Energetic Fish, we've got you covered.

If you don't spend too much time becoming the world's greatest chef, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will take roughly 35 hours to complete. However, you can easily stretch that out to be over 100 hours with some grinding, Easter egg hunting, or just making sure your team are a well-fed machine.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is available now wherever fine games are sold.
