Garlic Junior Saga
|[[Freeza Saga|]]||[[Trunks Saga|]]|
The Garlic Jr. Saga is a short period in the fictional anime series Dragon Ball Z. This saga originally wasn't covered in the Manga edition of Dragon Ball, being written and drawn after the Anime conversion. It occurs between the Freeza Saga and the Trunks Saga. Garlic Jr.'s story is based originally from DBZ Movie #1: "The Dead Zone".
In the movie, Garlic Jr. attacks Goku and Piccolo Junior, (Piccolo was fighting to avenge his defeat in the 23rd Tenka'ichi BudŰkai (World Tournament) from the Original Dragon Ball Series). Garlic Jr. reveals to be the son of one of the candidates to the throne of Guardian of the Earth, however Kami was the chosen one. Garlic Jr. came to revenge the discrimination of his father. His warriors, the Spice Boys, fight Goku, and he is able to defeat many of them. However, Garlic Jr. himself is defeated by Goku's four years old son, Son Gohan. This proved Gohan's incredible talent for fighting.
From Movie #1 until the Garlic Jr. Saga, Garlic was stuck in the Dead Zone, but he was able to escape thanks to the power of his planet, the Makyo Star. Garlic Jr. proves his power by defeating his eternal enemy Kami, and by putting him in a bottle, together with Kami's servant, Mr. Popo. The battle takes place on Kami's Lookout, where Piccolo Jr. and Gohan fight Garlic Jr. and his new team of Spice Boys. The new Spice Boys are much stronger than the old ones, and Garlic Jr. even uses the Black Water Mist , that turns every Human on Earth that comes in contact with the Mist into mindless zombies. Piccolo Jr. is also afected after being bit by some of the zombies, and turns against Gohan. Later Kuririn also comes to the fight, but his strenght is not enough. But Piccolo Jr. soon releases himself out of the Black Water Mist and attacks Garlic Jr., who grows into a giant using the power of the Makyo Star. In the meantime, Kami and Mr. Popo where released by Piccolo Jr., and then explain that the only way to negate the Black Water Mist's effects is to use the Holy Water. The Holy Water is in a dark place in the Universe , where Mr. Popo and Kami travel in an attempt to acquire the Holy Water. They fight evil spirits and guardians, but finally get the Holy Water to work and disolute the Black Water Mist. But Garlic Jr. wasn't defeated yet, and worst of all, thanks to his wish using the Dragonballs, he was immortal. But Gohan is just able to defeat him again and even kill him, because he wasn't imortal after all: he was only draining power from the dark side of the Universe (The Dead Zone).
