Z Movie # 1
Home Video Title:
"Ora no Gohan o Kaese!!"
("Return My Gohan!!")
evil little being resembling a miniature blue Namekian
and/or Emperor Pilaf (but whose actual race is never
mentioned), Garlic Jr., is gathering all of the
Dragon Balls together to wish for immortality. Since
young Gohan has Sûshinchû (Si Xing
Qiu, the 4-star ball) sewn to his cap, Gohan
is kidnapped by Garlic's minions. This causes Goku
to seek out Garlic (whose mansion is located on
a black island to the south of Kame House). Garlic
also wants to get rid of Kami-sama (who beat Garlic
Jr.'s father to the throne of Kami for the
Earth), so his minions attempt to kill Piccolo (if
Piccolo dies, Kami-sama also dies, and vice versa).
Kami-sama and Piccolo join in the battle, as does
Kuririn. The minions are wasted, but Garlic Jr.
already made his wish.. immortality. Garlic and
Kami-sama fight it out, and Garlic wins. Before
Garlic Jr. has the chance to kill Kami-sama, Goku
and Piccolo show up together, and team up to fight
the now-immortal beast.
Jr. gets beaten up a bit by Goku and Piccolo, so
he decides to create a "Dead Zone"
(seemingly like a black hole) which threatens to
suck everyone in and kill them. But Gohan (who had
eaten a hallucinagenic apple, and is still feeling
a bit of a buzz) gets angry, and blasts Garlic into
the Dead Zone. The Dead Zone closes, sticking Garlic
into a form of eternal hell.
