"I promised them I'd survive even if I was the only one left. The Great Elder named me his successor before disaster stuck. Maybe he foresaw his own doom and entrusted the fate of our people to me. That's why it's my responsibility to survive this."
— "Outer Space Battle"

Esca (エスカ Esuka) is a young Namekian.


Like all Namekians, Esca possesses antennae, pointy ears and green skin and also wears regular Namekian clothing.


Just like Dende as a child, Esca is a kind hearted young Namekian. After Goku and Vegeta are defeated by Moro, he quickly rushes to aid those who had saved him and uses his healing powers on them due to being grateful for their actions.

Moro captures Esca

Esca getting captured by Moro

Esca is first seen giving thanks to the Gods for their protection along with Moori and another younger Namekian child. Afterwards he goes to play Hide and Seek with him just as a spaceship carrying Moro begins to descend on to the planet.

When Goku and Vegeta drive and earn the Nameless, they flew but Esca remains hidden away in a house. Sensing that he is there, Moro uses his powers to pull him out of hiding and prepares to consume him as a light snack but he is saved at the last second by Vegeta who returns him to his elder.

After the two Saiyans are defeated by Moro, Esca and Moori rush to check up on the two and carry them back to a nearby home. Over the next few days, Esca uses his healing abilities to restore some of Goku's health and though he admits he is not as good as Dende when it comes to such powers, he says he wanted to help him recover as quickly as possible. He turns his powers then on to Vegeta and when he wakes up, thanks him for saving him earlier from Moro.

Shortly after, Goku and Vegeta head off to confront Moro again and while they are gone, Cranberry finds them, taking down the two elder Namekians before placing a device on Esca that allows him to take control of his mind and uses him to summon Porunga. After making two wishes, Moro shows up and kills Cranberry and uses Esca to make the third wish to free all the Galactic Prisoners from the Galactic Prison and then collapses afterwards.

When Good Buu appears on New Namek, he uses his own healing powers to save Esca. Along with Jaco and Merus, Esca boards the Galactic Patrol ship. Jaco says to him that the whole ordeal must be very hard for Esca and in return says that he promised that he would survive even if he were the only one left. Later he eventually remembers the wish that Moro made and tells Jaco and Merus what it was that Moro wished for.

Esca along with the others then head for the Galactic Patrol Headquarters and when he see's Goku expresses that he is glad that he was able to teleport away to safety. When he asks where Vegeta is, Goku tells him that he must have gone off somewhere to train. He then watches as Goku trains with Merus in the training room.
