The Unnamed Guardian of Earth is Kami's predecessor as the Guardian of Earth. He is shown in a flashback in Dragon Ball, he is mentioned when Mr. Popo tells Bulma about the Nameless Namek's spaceship, and he appears as a ghost in the Dragon Ball Z episode "Battle in Kami's Lookout".
The Unnamed Guardian is a strict, but loving guardian. He is cared for by Mr. Popo. He loves the world but hates evildoers. When he decides something, he hardly changes his mind.
The Nameless Namekian and Garlic were his apprentices until he chose the Nameless Namek as his successor. This angered Garlic, who then decided to start a war against the guardian and his successor. The guardian and his apprentice eventually defeat Garlic's demons and cast Garlic into a Dark Crystal.
After this, the guardian still did not give his place to the Nameless Namek because of the evil in the Nameless Namek's heart. When the Nameless Namek split into Kami and King Piccolo, Kami eventually becomes the new Guardian of Earth.

Kami and Mr. Popo tell him they wish to pour the Sacred Water at the bottom of Kami's Lookout in order to cure the Earthlings from the effects of Garlic Jr.'s Black Water Mist. In the end, he lets Kami and Mr. Popo go and pour the water.
