Katas (カタッツ, Katattsu) was an ancient Namekian and the father of the Nameless Namek (who later separated into Kami and Demon King Piccolo).


Katas lived on Planet Namek before Age 261 and belonged to the Dragon Clan during a time period when different classes of Namekians were more common, and when Namek had knowledge of higher technology, such as space travel. In Age 261, a massive climate shift took place on Namek. He managed to save his son by sending him off to planet Earth in a spaceship before dying along with almost all of the other living Namekians. The only survivor of this was Guru, who gradually restored the population.


  • Katas' name pun is based on that of the Japanese word "Kattatsumuuri", meaning snail.
