In the original work, Planet Namek’s Great Elder’s unlocking potential method could have been said to be the safest and most effective way to increase Battle Power in the entire dragon ball story.
It does not aim to increase it by sacrificing the potential of a person, nor is it simply overdrafting the person’s future potential to achieve a concentrated burst within a short period of time.
Instead, through a similar exchanging method, it can be considered as Great Elder releasing the potential in advance, actually saving time for training. Although it is not known what Great Elder exchanges for it, this method of unlocking potential does not itself cause harm to the person’s body!
In the original work, Krillin and Son Gohan’s battle power was originally only around thousand points. But after their potential was unlocked by the Great Elder, their Battle Power suddenly increased to more than 10,000. That growth rate was astonishing!
Deducing from that, Xiaya doesn’t know to what level he could reach after his potential was unlocked. He was somewhat expectant in his heart.
The reason why Xiaya decided to go to Planet Namek, at this time, is because he believes that he has already laid a solid enough foundation to handle the power brought on by unlocking of potential.
Xiling and Myers do not know the situation of Planet Namek. Once they heard that their is a place to increase strength, they immediately surrounded Xiaya and keep on asking about Planet Namek. However, Xiaya will not take them before their sins were eliminated.
First, although unlocking potential does not consume vitality, however it is a very energy consuming matter and is also burdensome for the Great Elder; Second, if Great Elder determines that they are evil people because of the residual sins on their body, and does not unlock their potential, the loss would really outweigh the gain.
So no matter how Xiling and Myers pestered him, Xiaya had made up his mind not to reveal anything, causing Xiling and Myers’ hearts to itch.
Dinner time, Xiaya put forward their intentions to Adri and Rebecca. After finished listening, both of them readily agreed. After entrusting Xiling and Myers to him, they, not in the least concerned, engrossed themselves in looking after their youngest son Laret.
It caused Xiling’s mouth, on the side, to twitch; she felt as if she was losing favor.
Next morning, after Xiaya found some information through the Mission Administration Office, he went out with Xiling and Myers. This time their objective was the several space pirates wanted by Galactic Patrol, because they perpetually disturbs the of order in Milky Way Galaxy and their hands were covered with blood. These space pirates were heinous criminals, guilty of monstrous crimes.
Just because the spaceships of these space pirates were particularly advanced, the ordinary Galactic Patrol simply could catch up with them, and this had caused them to remain unpunished by the law.
However, it wasn’t of any problem for them, because they have Instant Transmission in their hands. Can anyone escape from their palms?
So for the next few days, Xiaya led Xiling and Myers to rampage around the Milky Way Galaxy, catching space pirates and beating them to death. Soon, the number of evil space pirates who died under their hands was over one hundred, causing the entire Milky Way Galaxy’s criminal circle to be in turmoil and scared, and at the same time, Xiling and Myers’ sin began to gradually decrease.
A month later, Xiling finally transformed from an "evil person" to a "righteous person", and had accumulated a lot of merits.
Now, their trip to Planet Namek can begin.
Planet Namek was located at the edge of North Area. It was not far away from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Its diameter is more than ten times that of Earth. Because the solar system where the planet was located was very special, it was a trinary star system, so Planet Namek never had any night.
In one year, Planet Namek only has 130 days, only one-third of earth. Hence, Planet Namek’s dragon balls were manufactured by the Great Elder with Planet Namek’s “one year” as the standard.
Because of this, if Planet Namek’s dragon balls were placed on Earth, it can fulfill nine wishes in one earth year.
At this time, Planet Namek.
On a warm and sunny afternoon, as always, a breeze was blowing in the dark green grassland, subtle ripples flowing, and a warm feeling could be felt under the bright sunshine.
On a bare rock, Xiaya suddenly appeared together with Xiling’s silhouette. They had just appeared and a boundless green grassland was reflected in their eyes, and breathing in the refreshing aura that pervaded the air, a comfortable feeling emerged in their heart.
After looking around, Xiaya discovered that on Planet Namek, besides the green grass on the ground, it only has few trees and some randomly scattered long ball-shaped strange plants. Even animals were only pitifully few.
The whole planet was very desolate. At least the species on it were far less numbered than other planets.
This was the result of the huge changes in Planet Namek’s climate. Since climate changes had swept through the entire planet, most of the primitive animals and plants on Planet Namek had become extinct, and the number of Namekians who had survived was also very low. Both were living in tribes.
"Xiaya, this planet is so desolate, is there really someone here that can unlock potential?" Xiling asks, frowning.
She has always believed in Xiaya’s words. It’s just that this desolate planet has nothing but grass and lakes. Is this planet even have a civilization?
The majority part of Planet Namek was land, while ocean area was very little. Although, there was a lake at every few tens of kilometers interval and the land was covered with green grass, and overall it appears as a beautiful prairie. However, that’s all it had. Below the superficial grassland, there is sandy lands and rocks where the roots of plants have difficulty growing. Many places were even barren.
It was no wonder that Xiling would be skeptical. Such a dry living environment requires a lot of vigorous vitality for a civilization to be able to reproduce on it!
Xiaya nodded and explained: "Namekians have the appearance similar to Kami from Earth, their skin is green. They innately have all sorts of mystical magic and have abilities related to plants which function similar to photosynthesis of plants. As long as they can drink water, they can use photosynthesis to produce starch to meet the requirements of physiological functions, so even if Planet Namek’s condition is nasty, they can survive.”
“Right, carefully feel for the most powerful aura on this planet, that is the place we are looking for!”
The number of Namekians here was very small, but Xiaya knows that wherever the strongest person’s aura is located, that’s where the Great Elder is.
“Oh.” Xiling nodded, then closed her eyes and sensed the aura on Planet Namek. A light wind blew and the thin strands of hair beside her ears fluttered. After a while, she opened her eyes; she had found the strongest Namekian’s aura.
“I’ve already found that aura’s position. I didn’t expect that this planet would even have an expert of this level when there are so few living beings here.” Describing the aura she had sensed, Xiling’s small mouth opened in surprise, disbelief written on her face.
That aura naturally could not compare with her and Xiaya, but it was still quite powerful.
Immediately, sensing that aura, the three people launched Instant Transmission and soon appeared in a vast uninhabited area. Here, there were crisscrossing canyons, and landscape was not so beautiful. Bare rocks covered the ground and green moss was randomly growing everywhere. The landscape was somewhat desolate and in wretched condition.
Above a huge towering rocky pillar, there was located a white building. That was the building from which that strong aura was coming out.
"Yes, this is where the Great Elder resides. Let’s go up!" The scenery here was exactly the same as the manga, Xiaya could recognize it at a glance.
Taking a breath, he nodded towards Xiling and Myers, and then slowly flew towards the Great Elder’s house.
Great Elder’s house was much larger than a common Namekians’ house. It was two-story; the upper floor is the Great Elder’s room, and the floor below is of the Namekian warrior who guards the Great Elder.
When Xiaya and Xiling arrived in front of the huge building, a green-skinned Namekian came out.
“Who are you? This is where the Great Elder rests. If there is nothing important, please leave as quickly as possible.”
The young Namekian told Xiaya.
From the original work, Xiaya knew that this young Namekian was—–Nail, who was responsible for protecting the Great Elder. He is one of the few battle-type Namekian on Planet Namek, and was also the strongest warrior on Planet Namek.
In the original work, Nail lost to Frieza, and later fused with Piccolo, becoming part of Piccolo’s strength.
However, what caused Xiaya to be surprised is that this Namekian before him who looks exactly the same as the young Piccolo, currently has 24000 Battle Power. This was an amazing value, much more powerful than King Vegeta!
However, as it was still almost twenty-one years away from the start of Namek saga, and Namekian is also a long-lived race, it is normal for Nail to have such Battle Power.
Seeing Nail’s unfriendly expression, Xiaya said with a faint smile: "We know that Great Elder rests here, and we have come here precisely to pay a visit to Great Elder. Please go and inform him."
His tone was very polite, but his words were also filled with self confidence. He tried to be courteous as much as possible, and then only looked for the other person’s response. However, according to Xiaya’s understanding of Nail’s personality, he would most likely refuse them to visit.
Sure enough, Nail gave a quick glance to Xiaya and shook his head, saying: “Great Elder is old and will not see you. You should go back.”
Since Planet Namek experienced the extreme changes in climate, ancient Namekians had all become extinct. Great Elder was the only ancient Namekian who had survived the climate cataclysm. Currently, every Namekian on Planet Namek was birthed by him. For Nail, Great Elder was like a father character.
As the bodyguard of Great Elder, Nail does not want outsiders to disturb the Great Elder’s resting time.
“I think you should go and inform him. Maybe Great Elder would be willing to meet us.” Xiaya faintly smiled, again saying. He knows that Nail would not let them go meet Great Elder since he was afraid of them disturbing his rest. So, he did not get angry.
After hearing Xiaya’s words, Nail frowned; he does not like such annoying people. Even though he had told them to go back, they are still not going, his expression couldn't help but turn cold.
Just as he was about to refuse again, the Great Elder’s aged voice traveled out from the building: “Nail, let them come!”
Hearing Great Elder’s instructions, Nail froze, clearly somewhat surprised. However, for him, Great Elder’s order was the highest order. So, he gave Xiaya and others a glance, and said in an indifferent tone:
“You come with me, but, Great Elder needs to rest. If you have something to ask, do it quickly. Don’t disturb Great Elder’s rest!”
After finished speaking, he turned around and headed towards Great Elder’s residence.
Xiaya and others glanced at each other and followed up.
Great Elder’s residence was a huge two-story building with a very strange appearance, like the skeleton of a dragon. Looking from far away, it looked like a huge dragon’s head lying prone with mouth open on the ground. This may have originated because ancient Namekian worshipped dragons; Kami from earth has a spaceship which also has a similar style.
Walking into the huge building and arriving at the second floor, the Great Elder’s old and enormous body leaning against a stone chair could be seen. As his body was excessively big, even moving was very difficult.
“This is Planet Namek’s Great Elder, creator of Planet Namek’s dragon balls!” Looking at the old and enormous Namekian lying on the stone chair, Xiaya’s heart was like a mirror. The Great Elder’s enormous body was indeed very shocking.
Legend has it that Great Elder was the only ancient Namekian on Planet Namek who had survived the climate shift in ancient times. Hundreds of years time had caused his body to be permeated with vicissitudes of life.
Now, he was gradually getting old.
“Young King of Saiyans, for what reason have you come to Planet Namek?” Great Elder raised his eyelids, his aged voice sounding somewhat weak.
Listening to the faint sound would definitely give people the illusion that the speaker was like an oil lamp which had reached the point of drying. Because of this, Xiling and Myers could not help but wonder if this Great Elder could really help them improve their Battle Power.
However, Xiaya who was familiar with the development of the original work knows that Great Elder’s ability was naturally unquestionable, and he still has……more than two decades of lifespan!
On the side, the loyal bodyguard Nail looked at Xiaya and others, somewhat surprised. He really didn’t expect that this person before him who brought him a real deterrence would actually be the king of Saiyans. He was unexpectedly so young!
Of course, as Great Elder similarly have a prediction ability, Nail also didn’t think much, and continue to act as a qualified bodyguard.
“There is a rumor that Great Elder has a special ability to unlock the potential of a person’s body. We have come here to increase our strength. I hope that Great Elder can help us.”
Xiaya looked calm, and his body was filled with calmness and indifference of a leader. As he was similarly the leader of a race and was of similar status, Xiaya was qualified to talk to Planet Namek’s Great Elder as an equal.
“Oh, you know that I have such an ability. I can feel the ‘righteous’ power in your body. As this is different from the former Saiyans, I can accept your request!" Great Elder slightly nodded.
It seems that eliminating sins from their body was really effective. It, at least, let Great Elder believe that they were ‘righteous’ people, Xiaya revealed a bright smile. On the side, Xiling and Myers also had a happy expression on their face.
“Wait a minute, Great Elder, you are already getting very old. If you casually use your power, it will consume a lot of physical strength…”
Seeing that Great Elder promised without hesitation, Nail hurriedly tried to stop with a worried look on his face. As Great Elder was already getting old, even moving casually was not possible. He fears that if Great Elder uses his magic, it would deplete his body’s strength, thus affecting Great Elder’s lifespan.
“Hehe, rest assured, unlocking people’s potential is my special ability, it does not consume physical strength, my body can still preserve for several decades!” Great Elder shook his head and laughed.
Nail wanted to say something but hesitated, and finally complied with Great Elder’s words, retreating to the side.
“Who will go first?” Great Elder looked at Xiaya, Xiling and Myers before kindly asking.
“Let me go first!” Saying, Xiaya moved forward and arrived before Great Elder.
Great Elder nodded his head with a smile and extended his huge arm. His palm was placed on Xiaya’s head, almost covering his entire head. "Oh!" Astonishment flashed through Great Elder's face, and then he closed his eyes and concentrated.
“Saiyan King, I can feel that your body has unfathomable potential, and there is also some magical energy, like space-time power. Oh, let me see how much potential can be unlocked!”
Speaking this, he unleashed his magic and waited for Xiaya’s potential to get unlocked.
"Shua!" A golden light rose from the ground and immediately a bizarre magic acted on his body. Xiaya could feel that there was an immense heat flow gushing out from his body, quickly spreading throughout his body. Each cell of his was brimming with vitality as if it was injected with chicken blood, his whole body felt comfortable and refreshed.
After Great Elder has unlocked his potential, Xiaya’s Ki began to rise, and suddenly a majestic and boundless aura erupted out from nowhere and surrounded his body before it begins to rage and burn.
Xiaya was wrapped in golden blazing Ki and his strength kept rising!
Xiaya’s Ki kept increasing, as his potential was released due to Great Elder’s unlocking potential skill!
At this moment, Xiling and Myers, who were standing on the side, suddenly had their complexion change. They were all awed by the enormous energy emitted by Xiaya, and at the same time, their eyes turned scorching hot.
While the young Namekian Nail revealed a shocked expression.
Xiaya’s strength was still increasing, and finally –
Huo! The enormous flame suddenly expanded, and as the Ki flame seethed and burned, a vast and mighty aura burst into the sky!
Finally, his power settled on 720,000 Battle Power!
The clouds around the entire Planet Namek were suddenly scattered by this aura. The thick floating clouds dispersed all at once, and taking the area of Great Elder’s residence as the center, abnormal phenomena kept appearing in the atmosphere and sky, while the rosy clouds began to spin, forming layer after layers of concentric cyclones.
It was as if Planet Namek was once again experiencing a climate change.
“Such a frightening potential, I only unlocked a small part of it, but it is unexpectedly so frighteningly powerful. It seems that the Saiyan race will really rise in his hands!”
Great Elder’s face revealed a shocked expression on his face, his twinkling eyes looking at ‘still in a drunken stupor from power’ Xiaya. Besides them, Nail, Xiling, and Myers were long ago shocked by Xiaya’s imposingly soaring and frightening aura.
After about a quarter of an hour, Xiaya recovered from the drunken stupor, his body slightly swaying. His entire body suddenly emitting light “crackling” sounds as if breaking a frozen clay pot, bringing him an indescribable pleasure.
