Terror, known as Kinkaku (きんかく Kinkaku, lit. "Golden Horn") in the original Japanese version, is a character who appears in the Dragon Ball episode "Terror and Plague".


Terror and his partner Plague terrorize Chao's village with the Gourd of Mist, until he is defeated by Goku. Terror is shown to be the leader of the duo, and he even tells Plague to stand down, stating that he is no match for Goku. Although Terror is able to put up a better fight, he is still outclassed by Goku, and is forced to use the Gourd of Mist to trap him inside it.


Terror and Plague work for the villagers

Eventually, Terror is trapped inside the Gourd of Mist, alongside Plague, after failing to say his name as many times as it was called. He is later seen with Plague farming in the village, but while being threatened by the village people who have the Gourd of Mist.

Powers and abilities

Voice Actors


  • Both Terror (Kinkaku) and Plague (Ginkaku) are likely based on the two demon king brothers from the Chinese classic Journey to the West, Great King Kinkaku (金角大王, Kinkaku-daiō) and Great King Ginkaku (銀角大王, Ginkaku-daiō). The siblings possess five treasured tools, one of which is the Crimson Gourd (紅葫蘆, Benihisago) which has the ability to suck in their opponents and melt them once they are trapped within.
