* CanonDiscontinuity: This arc treats the events of the NonSerialMovie ''Anime/DragonBallZDeadZone'' as if they actually happened. This introduces a number of {{Continuity Snarl}}s as those events conflict heavily with the anime's adaptation of the Saiyan Saga. Thankfully, the Garlic Jr. arc is never referred to or mentioned again.

* DeusExitMachina: This arc was set before Goku returned to Earth, ergo, thogh mentioned he doesn't show up. Otherwise, much of the plot would be resolved far too quickly, now that Goku can turn into a Super Saiyan.

** Vegeta is not on Earth during the entire arc and is instead looking for Goku. While he is not a Super Saiyan, he is still much stronger than even Piccolo and the plot would end just as quickly.

tropes:

* ADayInTheSpotlight: One for Gohan, Krillin Krillin, and Piccolo, as well as for Kami and Mr. Popo.

Added DiffLines:

* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: One is shown after Garlic Jr.'s final defeat: The Dragon Ball Gang resume life at the Kame House, Gohan gets back to studying under hhis mother's (strict) supervision, Krillin gets a CoolCar and continues dating Marron, and Piccolo resumes training again. Curiously, ths ''isn't'' the last episode of the arc.


As Goku's friends and family wait for word on his return, a star drifts into position near the Earth and opens a rift in space allowing Garlic Jr. to break free from his imprisonment. He invades Kami's lookout and traps Kami and Popo before using the Black Mist Water to spread over Earth which will turn all who touch into raving vampire-like beings bent only on chaos. Krillin, Gohan, Krillin's then girlfriend Maron (not to be confused with his later named daughter) and Piccolo are the only ones unaffected and set out to stop Garlic Jr and restore the Earth. A task easier said then done as Garlic Jr. has immortality and is next to impossible to kill.

* RaceAgainstTheClock: The effects of the Black Water Mist become permanent after a day, so Gohan, Krillin, Kami and Mr. Popo have that long to stop Garlic Jr., and reverse it.

Piccolo.


* NotBrainwashed: Piccolo seems to have been converted into a vampire and attacks Gohan and Krillin, but he was just pretending to get close to Garlic Jr. and free Kami and Mr. Popo. Krillin likewise does this once Piccolo gets close to him, and reveals his plan. Bonus points for Piccolo [[GenreSavvy correctly noting]] [[RevengeBeforeReason that Garlic Jr's obsession with revenge]] will give him the chance to steal the bottles Kami and Mr. Popo were sealed in.
