Not much is known about Pikkon's past, besides how long he has been training in the otherworld.
Pikkon was once a fighter who lived in an unknown location in the West Quadrant of the universe. After dying a heroic death, Pikkon was permitted to journey to the planet of West Kai, where he trained hard and became West Kai's best student.
Pikkon is a very wise and adept fighter. He uses this to his advantage by planning out attacks. Pikkon even goes as far to correct Goku on his "sloppy" dodging and inability to concentrate, offering advice even in battle. When he first appears, he hardly speaks a word, but later opens up during his bout against Goku. Pikkon has heroic characteristics similar to Goku's, is a being of honor and valor. Goku compares his personality to that of Piccolo, and even states that Pikkon and Piccolo would "get along great"
Pikkon is the strongest warrior from the West Galaxy and is superior in strength, speed, and endurance to Goku in his Super Saiyan form. He is able to withstand Goku's Super Kaio-ken technique and quickly recover. He takes down Frieza and King Cold each with one blow, and manages to catch Perfect Cell off-guard as well with his tremendous speed. Pikkon has mastered powerful techniques, including the Burning Shoot, which is similar to Goku's Kaio-ken in that it provides a brief but incredible boost of energy, speed, and strength.
