Tsumuri (ツムリ), the Namekian Hero (ヒーロー), is a human who utilizes the advanced time travel technology of the Dragon Ball Heroes machines, allowing him to become a Namekian.
Tsumuri looks like a younger version of Piccolo. He wears a white cape, along with a white turban and a purple Gi just like Piccolo. Tsumuri's outfit changes to a yellow color scheme when using his Super Class-up state, and a red and purple one in his God Class-up state. Tsumuri's Ultimate Class-up state then changes into a stylish purple variant, while his cape stays white. His eyes change to blue, and has cyan orbs embedded into his turban, belt, and boots.
In Victory Mission, the human player shown using the Namekian Hero, Tsumuri, looks like a Human version of his avatar.
The Namekian Hero is called Tsumuri (ツムリ) in the Heroes Road mode of Dragon Ball Heroes; this name comes from the Japanese word katatsumuri, which means "snail".
The Namekian Hero appears used by Tsumuri in the 10th chapter of the spin-off manga Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission. He has a battle with Nim in the first round of a tournament and tries to win using a Legendary Super Saiyan 3 Broly card, but Nimu makes a counterattack using his Android 17/Android 18 card. After that, the Tsumuri fuses with Piccolo and Nimu brings out Super Android 13. After this, Tsumuri is eventually defeated.
