He may remove up to up to 1/10th of his maximum hit points, ki points, and/or AC from the pool as a free action, bonus action, or reaction on his turn. Nail may spend ki points to increase the amount added or removed from the pool by the initial amount added or removed per ki point spent.

The strongest namekian on planet namek at the time of the Frieza Force's invasion, Nail is the guardian of Grand Elder Guru. He is a steadfast warrior who cares greatly about his people and his planet. When he was slain at the hands of the emperor himself, hanging to life by a thread after stalling long enough for Dende to summon Porunga, he was met by the newly resurrected Piccolo. Knowing his time was short, he asked to be absorbed. This fusion resulted in the strongest force for good the world had yet seen.
