"A musical instrument. Didn't see that one coming, King Piccolo."
Video game appearancesEdit
Piano appears in Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Totsugeki-Hen and Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure. He also makes a brief cameo appearance in the introduction movie of Dragon Ball Z: Sagas.
- Japanese Dub: Masato Hirano
- FUNimation Dub: Brian Beacock (Anime) and Sonny Strait (Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo)
- Latin American Dub: Ernesto Lezama
- Piano's name is an obvious pun of the musical instrument, the piano.
- Piano is the only one of King Piccolo's minions that seems to realize the puns of Piccolo's sons' names, as when Cymbal is born and Piccolo names him Piano says with sarcasm, "A musical instrument. Didn't see that one coming, King Piccolo".
- In the FUNimation Dub, it is implied that he was simply stunned or hurt, while in the Japanese dub he did not make any sounds after being crushed.
- In the episode "Siege on Chow Castle", Piano can be seen eating corn, even though he is a Namekian (who only need to drink water as nourishment). On another occasion, in the episode "Awaken Darkness", Piano can be seen forcing a bunch of cooks and maids to make a banquet for King Piccolo to celebrate his world takeover, even though King Piccolo is a Namekian. There is a possible explanation, as King Piccolo was part of the Nameless Namekian, and thus never knew he was an alien (and this is only revealed to Piccolo Jr. in Dragon Ball Z when told by Raditz). It may be assumed that having thought himself human, the Nameless Namekian--and therefore Kami and King Piccolo--was unaware that he only needed water as sustinence.
- In Master Roshi's past, one of the mutated Namekian offspring he faces has pterodactyl features like Piano, but more closely resembles Tambourine.
- Piano briefly appeared in the second opening of Dragon Ball (the opening is currently in the Japanese version only).
- Aside from Piccolo, he is the longest lived of King Piccolo's offspring. It is never defined how long King Piccolo's other offspring in the past lived, so it remains unknown if they lived longer than Piano.
