The Saga of Garlic Jr. (ガーリックＪｒジュニア編 Gārikku Junia Hen) is a Dragon Ball Z🐲 saga and contains only ten episodes. It is not much kept up, as it is a small filler saga, sequel to the movie Dragon Ball Z: Divine Vengeance, so not conceived by Toriyama but by the producers of Toei Animation.
Garlic Jr. manages to free himself from the dimension in which he was imprisoned and, with the help of his henchmen, reaches the Earth🌎 with the aim of avenging his father eliminated by Son Goku. A year has passed since the clash between the Saiyan and Frieza and on Earth the period of peace seems to have come to an end.
Son Gohan makes the acquaintance of Marion, Krillin's girlfriend, while Piccolo refuses the Earth God's offer to take his place. At the Temple of God, Mr. Popo is visited by Garlic Jr.'s henchmen: Gassyu, Vinegar, Tard and Zoldo. Garlic Jr. asks Popo where the Earth God is, but Popo doesn't know. So Garlic Jr. locks him up in a sphere of light. God reaches the place and is blocked by Garlic Jr. and locked up in a small sphere as well. Meanwhile Son Gohan, instead of doing his homework, runs away from home to the Kame House with the help of Draghetto. Garlic Jr. opens a magic ampoule and lets out a special evil😈 powder that, spread all over the planet, makes evil the people who breathe it making them become demons.
All animals and people become demons, presenting red eyes and becoming aggressive. Son Gohan and Dracula, however, take refuge in a cave where they do not breathe in the evil dust cloud and therefore remain normal. Garlic Jr., from the Temple of God, locates Son Gohan and asks his henchmen to capture him in order to recover Son Goku as well. Meanwhile, at the Kame House, Krillin introduces Master Muten, Yamcha and Bulma to his girlfriend Marion. Chichi also arrives on the scene and looks for her son to prevent him from wasting time with them and studying. However, all of them are enveloped by the evil cloud and become demons. The only ones to save themselves are Krillin and Marion who had dived underwater. Son Gohan arrives at the Kame House and finds his mother has become a demon. Krillin and Son Gohan are forced to fight against their friends who are no longer thinking straight and destroy parts of the house. At the Kame House, Gassyu, Vinegar, Tard and Zoldo arrive and explain to the little Saiyan that if he wants to see his loved ones back to normal, he must go to Karin's Tower to get the Sacred Water.
At the Kame House, Piccolo also arrives who has not become a demon. Gassyu explains to Piccolo how Garlic Jr. was able to break free from the dimension in which he was imprisoned. In fact, the demons' planet Makyo, which passes once every five thousand years near Earth, has strengthened the demon's😈 powers, allowing him to break through the walls of the dimension. Gassyu proposes to Piccolo to ally with Garlic Jr. but he refuses and begins to fight against his friends. Meanwhile, Son Gohan and Krillin go in search of the miracle water that must be found within a day in order to work on the people affected by the evil cloud. Piccolo is bitten by Yamcha and becomes a demon as well.
Meanwhile Vegeta is looking for Son Goku and for this he kills all the soldiers of Frieza's army to find out where he is. On Earth🌎, Son Gohan and Krillin reach Karin, who reveals that the miraculous water springs from the ice labyrinth in the Northern lands or is present at the Temple of God. The two go to the Temple of God but here they find, in addition to Garlic Jr. also Piccolo, who has become a demon.
Garlic Jr. asks Son Gohan where his father is. Son Gohan begins to fight against Zoldo while Krillin fights against Tard. The two are in trouble but Krillin defends his friend and goes down without strength. Son Gohan is angry. Zoldo and Tard try a powerful combined attack but the Saiyan defends himself to their amazement. Son Gohan attacks Zoldo with Masenko eliminating him. Tard, angry, attacks him but Son Goku's son also kills him with a Masenko. In a planet in space, instead, Vegeta tries to become Super Saiyan and is desperately looking for Son Goku.
Piccolo attacks Son Gohan with all his might. In the meantime, Krillin tries to free the Earth God, but is hit by Garlic Jr. who wants to finish him off. Son Gohan gets angry and throws Piccolo into the path of Garlic Jr.'s blow, knocking down his Namecian friend. Piccolo gets back up and strikes first Krillin and then Son Gohan. The little Saiyan is taken inside the palace. Krillin also seems to have become a demon😈, but Piccolo, approaching Garlic Jr., takes away the cruets where Mr. Popo and the Earth God are locked up, freeing them. Piccolo and Krillin, in fact, pretend to have become demons.
Garlic Jr. reveals to everyone that it's too late for them anyway. In fact, there is too little time left for the miraculous water to spread all over the planet. Mr. Popo proposes to the God of the Earth🌎 to speed up the process by distributing it through the seven streams from which access is gained, however, through the inviolable zone where the highest authorities of the Earth who preceded the God of the Earth rest. Popo warns God that it is a risk to reach this place. God wants to go there anyway to protect the planet and so he is accompanied by Popo. Meanwhile, Piccolo, Krillin and Son Gohan fight Garlic Jr, Vinegar and Gassyu respectively. While Gassyu strangles the Saiyan with his hair, Krillin has his Kienzan rejected by Vinegar. Son Gohan breaks free from Gassyu and with a Masenko hits Vinegar. Gassyu, on the other hand, is thrown into a beam. The planet Makyo, however, reaches the closest position to Earth and allows Vinegar and Gassyu to recover and Garlic Jr. to transform, increasing in size and muscle mass.
Following this, Vinegar and Gassyu also transform. While the three friends have to fight the demons, God and Popo arrive in the inviolable zone and find the Earth God who preceded Kami (the current one). The being attacks them with thunderbolts and the two are forced to flee. In the meantime, Krillin is hit and falls from the Temple of God. Son Gohan defeats Vinegar and Gassyu to save his friend in trouble. God has trouble reaching his destination and manages to make it through without strength and risking losing his entity. Piccolo, who is connected to him, notices some weakening in the fight against Garlic Jr. In their fight, however, Son Gohan intervenes to help the Namecian.
As God tries to convince his predecessors to let him pass, Son Gohan attacks Garlic Jr. piercing his chest. Garlic Jr. however recovers thanks to his immortality. Mr. Popo manages to distribute the miracle water throughout the planet. This infuriates Garlic Jr. who creates another dimension with the purpose of sucking everyone in.
Piccolo orders Son Gohan to destroy the planet Makyo, the source of Garlic Jr.'s powers. Son Gohan refuses because he must protect his two friends. Meanwhile, God and Popo are sent out of the inviolable zone. Piccolo regains his energies and together with Krillin attacks Garlic Jr. Son Gohan is free to hit Garlic Jr.'s planet and in this way eliminate both of them. The planet disappears and together with it the demon😈. Everything goes back to normal.
