Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot: How to Defeat Piccolo

In Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, you will be fighting a lot of powerful enemies while roaming around the world, but none of these regular enemies is on the same level as the bosses you will have to face.

Right at the start of the game, however, you will have to fight against a powerful boss who is not out to take Goku down (at least not anymore) but to help him become stronger.

Here’s how to take down Piccolo at the very beginning of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

The battle against Piccolo is more of a tutorial rather than a true boss battle, but you will still need to know how to handle things properly to win.

While going on the offensive is pretty straightforward, as you do not have a lot of skills and different attacks to work with, defense is a little more complex, as Piccolo can unleash three different special attacks that must be countered properly.

  • Demon Slash is a slashing attack that covers some good ground both vertically and horizontally, but it can be avoided easily by dodging, as Piccolo charges shortly before unleashing it.
  • Demon Flash Strike is even easier to avoid than Demon Slash, as this forward charging move is preceded by a red signal with arrows. Dodge to the side as soon as you see it, and you will be fine.
  • Piccolo’s most powerful attack in this battle is the Rapid Fire Ki Wave, a quick projectile attack that is difficult to dodge and deals a lot of damage. As such, you will want to block it to reduce the damage.

After avoiding these attacks, Piccolo will be defenseless for a short while. Go at him with your combos, defend properly when needed and you will win this battle with ease.
