The Oldest Elder (さいちょうろう, Saichōrō; FUNimation "Grand Elder Guru", Viz "The Great Elder") of Namek was the eldest Nameccian living on the planet Namek, and the only Nameccian besides son of Katas to survive the cataclysm that nearly pushed their race to extinction. He was the creator of the Nameccian Dragon Balls, and one who saved the Nameccian race from near extinction by birthing eggs to propagate his species.
