Vinegar and the other Spice Boys stop Gohan

Vinegar is first seen when Garlic Jr. comes back from the Dead Zone. Later, with the Spice Boys, he attacks Kami's Lookout, capturing Mr. Popo, and later Kami in bottles. After the death of Salt and Mustard, Vinegar attacks Krillin, beating him up and kicking him over the edge of the Lookout. Vinegar is then killed by an enraged Gohan who fires two simultaneous Masenkos at him and Spice, destroying them both.


Vinegar's power level is 800,000 in Dragon Ball Z: The Anime Adventure Game.

Voice actors



  • Vinegar is the first character to catch a Destructo Disk thrown at him, which was impossible for any character in the manga. Gohan would do this later, though unlike Vinegar, his hand makes no physical contact with it. This was also filler.
  • He, along with Salt, are the only members of the Spice Boys to not have new voices in the Re-mastered Funimation Dub.
  • Vinegar is the ONLY member of Garlic jr's team (other than Garlic jr himself and Ginger) to have a name not based on a pun (he is named AFTER a spice), Salt was originally "Zald" (or Zard) and Mustard was originally "Tard" in japanese, Spice was actually Gashew (Mistakly rominizated as Cashew by fans) in japanese, a pun on "sugar"
  • Vinegar, King Cold, Ox-King, King Yemma share the same voice actor in japanese and french (japanese voiced by Daisuke Gouri, and french voiced by Georges Lycan)
    • Speaking of which, Ox-King and Yemma have hats with horns, also fitting with Vinegar
