Planet Namek in Super Smash Flash 2.
|Appearance||Super Smash Flash 2|
|Home stage for||Goku|
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.
The stage consists of three main rock-platforms over a large body of water; two platforms are at the sides and slope downward toward the horizontal blast lines, while the third is in the center of the stage. Semisoft platforms float in the air within the gaps between these platforms. It has been said that the orange body above Namek is one of its three suns. Piccolo can be seen observing the battle from the bottom right corner of the stage, and Vegeta, Trunks, and Gohan can be seen flying above the stage every 35 seconds. None of them interfere with the battles.
- The main music track is titled Challengers from Dragon Ball Z: Budokai.
This stage is banned in competitive play. The stage is long and has walls, pits, and walk-off edges, giving the stage an unviable layout.
Namek is one of the most representative locations from the Dragon Ball media 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 Goku first achieved his Super Saiyan form. It first appeared, physically, in chapter 247 of the 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 result of the Ajisa trees found throughout the planet. The surface of Namek is also filled with large bodies of water. As Namek if found in a binary star system, it orbits around threes star 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 of the stage.
