Garlic Junior (ガーリックJr, Gārikku Junia) is a Makyan who is the son his father Garlic who attempted to usurp God in an act of revenge for his father and pursuing the throne of God of Earth. After his failed first attempt, he succeeds during a locus of peace on Earth in where he returns afterwards because of the influence of the planet Makyō. After his release he achieved his goal of usurping God of his role. In his efforts he was again defeated by Son Gohan sending him back to the Dead Zone for all eternity.




Garlic Junior's base form is strong enough to fight God on his own. It is unknown how it would have fared against Gokū or Piccolo at the time.


Because of the Dragon Balls, Garlic Junior cannot be killed. Since he can apparently be hurt but was never seriously injured, it is unknown how this works, but it is likely similar to Zamasu since they both gained immortality from the Dragon Balls.


Garlic Junior can transform to a form with dark green skin and massive muscles. In this form he could fight both Goku and Piccolo at once. This form didn't seem as powerful as Raditz, however, as he never showed the kind of overwhelming advantage Raditz did. In addition he was defeated by Gohan, whereas Raditz kept fighting after being hit with the same power.

Dead Zone[]

Garlic Junior can open a portal to the Dead Zone. This portal sucks in anything near him. However, he can fall in himself if he is thrown in like he was by Gohan.
