Vinegar is one of the Demon's from the Makyo Star who along with the other members of the Spice Boys serve under Garlic Jr.. He assists Garlic Jr. in defeating Kami on The Lookout and later heads to Kame House with the others in an attempt to kidnap Gohan on Garlic Jr.'s orders. When Piccolo intervenes Vinegar fights with the others.
After the death of Salt and Mustard, Vinegar attacks Krillin and defeats him but is blasted away by Gohan. When the Makyo Star approaches Earth, his power increases many times over and transforms using the Gigantification technique. He fights Krillin again, 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.
When Vinegar fought Krillin in battle he was able to defeat him but when Gohan intervened he was easily defeated. When the Makyo Star approaches Earth, his power grew by many fold and once again easily defeated Krillin. He was however killed by Gohan after he became angry.

- 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)
