Planet Namek (ナメック星), often referred to as Namek, is a starter stage that represents the Dragon Ball universe in Super Smash Flash 2 and serves as a home stage for Goku. It was seen for the first time in former dev's, RoyMaster4, Mega Man's SSF2 Mini-Trailer where it carried a different design from the one ultimately used in-game.

Layout

The stage mainly consists of a large rock platform over a large body of water. It has a high elevation on the right side that slopes downward toward the left side, where there is a white dome on the ground. There are two soft white platforms that float in the air, with one above the right side of the main platform and one directly to the right of the main platform with gaps between those platforms. Vegeta IV, Trunks, and Son Gohan can be seen in the background flying above the stage every 35 seconds, but none of them interfere with the battles.

Music

  • The main music track is titled, Challengers from Dragon Ball Z: Budokai. Arranged by Auraka.
  • The alternate music track is titled, DBZ Fight Theme, from the original Japanese production soundtrack, Dragon Ball Z with a bit of the band as a remix. Arranged by Andrew asf Fisher.

Origin

Namek planet

A colored render of Namek from the manga by Akira Toriyama, note the architecture of Kami-sama's spaceship.

Namek is one of the most representative locations from the Dragon Ball franchise because it is the location where the confrontation against one the series most emblematic villains, Frieza, takes place, as well as being the place where Son Goku first achieved his Super Saiyan form. It first appeared, physically, in chapter 247 of the Dragon Ball manga titled "Dark Clouds Swirl Over Planet Namek" (暗雲うずまくナメック星) but was teased by dialogue several times numerous chapters back. It is the home planet to all the Namekians, a race of green beings and warriors that have lived on Namek for many years. The most notable trait of Namek is its greenish environment as a result of the Ajisa trees found throughout the planet. The surface of Namek is also filled with large bodies of water. As Namek is found in a binary star system, it orbits around three stars and, thus, never experiences night. The Namekian's architecture has a characteristic white color with round finishes and protruding horn decorations. This is can be seen on the floating platforms and white dome of the stage.

Trivia

  • Prior to Beta 1.1, this stage's layout was completely different, instead consisting of three main rock platforms with semisoft platforms floating in-between. The left and right rock platforms would slope towards the blast lines and Piccolo would observe the fight from the foreground of the right platform.
