Chi-Chi after Maron insults her

The episode starts out with the Black Water Mist spreading across the Earth, and a scene shows a little girl infected. It then cuts to a scene where Garlic Jr. tells his father the Black Water Mist has been spread throughout the Earth, and then goes to a scene where Chi-Chi (as always) gets upset and worried beginning to know where Gohan is, and if Krillin has anything to do with where Gohan is. It then goes to a scene to where Gohan is riding on Icarus, telling Icarus how excited he is to see everybody.


Gohan and Icarus get caught up with a group of animals

However, not knowing about the Black Water Mist, he and Icarus get caught up with a group of various infected animals, and soon almost getting caught in the Black Water Mist, only for Gohan and Icarus to hide inside a tiny cave. The scene then goes to the Kame House, with everyone relaxing while Krillin tries to catch a fish. Yamcha and Bulma start laughing out loud saying to Krillin to use the pointy end of the stick. Krillin gets mad and says, " Well, if you think its so easy why don't you try it?". Yamcha still laughs saying, " No thanks, I'm not the one who promised Maron we were going to have fish for dinner." Krillin blushes, and his girlfriend Maron comes out to say hi, but all of a sudden a big plane crashes behind Krillin, with Chi-Chi inside, furious.

She starts yelling at Krillin, Yamcha, Bulma and Master Roshi "where is Gohan?". When Master Roshi says he is not here and Yamcha says he needs to help save the world, she says so. Maron comes up insulting Chi-Chi, calling her grandma and so on and so forth. But what got Chi-Chi furious is when Maron says that she doesn't blame Gohan for going away, causing Chi-Chi to explode in anger and make a red aura (similar to Kaio-ken) appear around her body. She yells at Maron calling her the most spoiled brat she ever met and also threatens to beat her to such an extent that she's left with significant bruisng. Roshi then steps between the two and attempts to break up the situation and tries to defend Maron, though he then discreetly manages to grope Maron, causing to squeal and recoil in shock before declaring Roshi to be "worse". Krillin then grabs Maron and tries to point out that the woman she was talking to was Chi-Chi, who is one of the strongest people on the planet, with even her husband Goku being terrified of her, and then having to explain to her for the eleventh time that Goku's his "friend from space." but moments later, while Maron and Krillin are in the water, the gang is infected by the Black Water Mist! When Gohan goes back, however, Chi-Chi seems to be mad and attacks him, and Maron continuously yells at Chi-Chi.

Yamcha and Bulma start to attack Krillin, Icarus is being attacked by Oolong and Puar, and Master Roshi goes after Maron. But when the Spice Boys show up, Gohan and Krillin learn that everyone on Earth but Gohan, Krillin, Maron, Piccolo, Mr. Popo, and Kami, (being held captive in a jar), has been infected by the Black Water Mist, and Garlic Jr. has escaped from the Dead Zone. Gohan is attacked by the Spice Boys, with his deducing that they were responsible for everyone on the island changing. They confirm it, though refuse to change them back since only the Sacred Water can do so, and cite that Kami's on "extended leave" and that Garlic Jr. is taking over, with Gohan recognizing the name, to their delight. Piccolo then shows up and learns of Garlic Jr. and the Black Water Mist. The Spice Boys boys now attack Piccolo.

Differences from the manga[]

  • The entire events of this episode were exclusive to the anime.


  • The location of Goku's house appears to be different, being on a mountain and with a hangar nearby with a plane which Chi-Chi later uses to go to Kame House.
  • Flashbacks in "Black Fog of Terror" feature animated footage from the 1990 film Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone.
  • The edited, dubbed version of the show digitally "adds to" Maron's swimsuit, since it was very revealing in the uncensored Japanese.
  • In the scene where Master Roshi steps in the way of Chi-Chi's attempt at attacking Maron (as well as discreetly groping the latter), Chi-Chi looks as if she towers over Roshi, even though Chi-Chi is 5'4" and Roshi is 5'5".
  • The little girl had no proper dialogue in the Japanese version. There she was just crying until the Black Water Mist infected her.
  • Kami's flashback to Garlic's rebellion was silent in the Japanese version, with no explanation by the former explaining the circumstances behind the latter's kind.
  • When Master Roshi becomes infected with the Black Water Mist, he had no dialogue in the Japanese version.
  • Garlic's screams in Kami's flashback are provided by Christopher Sabat instead of Chuck Huber from Dead Zone. Sabat was retained even in the remastered version.
  • Maron's insults towards Chi-Chi come across as more mean-spirited in the English dub whereas the Japanese was more innocent and dim-witted.
  • The episode's synopsis claims that Gohan was swimming in the ocean with Krillin and Maron as how he avoided being infected by the Black Water Mist, but in truth, he avoided it by being thrown into a cave by Icarus who then blocked the entrance.
