After being exiled from the Namek homeworld, Lord Slug began traveling across outer space, organizing an army to assist in the conquering of further planets. His forces make their debut in the film Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, where they visit Earth, attempting to transform it into a pseudo-spacecraft by freezing its atmosphere and using it to carry them to new planets.
The henchmen who work closest with Lord Slug are Commander Zeeun, Angila, Wings, Medamatcha, Gyoshu and Kakuja. Countless other soldiers who appear to be of the same race as one member of Dodoria's Elite also serve as grunts in Slug's army; however, these soldiers have a relatively low power level, as Chi-Chi demonstrates by besting several of them to protect Gohan.
Aside from Gyoshu, Commander Zeeun, Kajuya and a number of grunts, who Slug himself kills at various points of the film, Lord Slug's henchmen are slain by Piccolo and Goku. Wings is killed by an Energy Wave to the face, Medamatcha is pummeled to death and Angila swallows a deflected Mouth Energy Wave. In the final battle with the Super Namek, Piccolo, Gohan and Goku plot together to defeat Lord Slug.
Members of Lord Slug's Demon Clan also appear in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn.
Lord Slug, Commander Zeeun, Angila, Wings, and Medamatcha are playable characters in the Japanese only arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes. In the promotional movie for Dragon Ball Heroes, Lord Slug with his clan was seen attacking a unknown planet inhabited with mushroom-like creatures (it should be noted Zeeun was not present). Some low-class grunts together with Wings attacked the population, only to be stopped by Froze. While Medamatcha was defeated by the Saiyan Hero Beat, Lord Slug himself was stopped by Goku as a Super Saiyan.
- Lord Slug's footsoldiers look similar to one of the Frieza Soldiers, as well as to one member of Dodoria's Elite. Also, Pui Pui and Babidi's Majin Soldiers wear uniforms very similar to that of Lord Slug's minions.
- Gyoshu and Kakuja are the only members of Lord Slug's clan that do not appear in Dragon Ball Heroes or any other video games.
