"We're like celebrities to all these people, kinda like the role models an' all!"
— "Battle in Kami's Lookout"

Vinegar (ビネガー Binegā) is a large, brawny member of the Spice Boys.


He is a large, muscular Makyan alien with light purple skin, long pointed ears, and long dark brown hair. He wears a beige Mongolian-style fur hat which looks like a cap of a condiment bottle (Salt also wears one, though bigger and brown in color), adorned with white horns. Just like his comrades, he wears a Frieza Force-styled jacket battle, his one being black with musk-green pectorals and upper back, and also having a midsection opening showing his sixpacks. He also wears mint-green legwarmers at his ankles, and bracers and boots in the same musk-green tone of his jacket.


He is short tempered and arrogant when it comes to fighting.

Vinegar and the other Spice Boys stop Gohan

Vinegar is one of the Demon's from the Makyo Star who along with the other members of the Spice Boys serve under Garlic Jr.. He assists Garlic Jr. in defeating Kami on The Lookout and later heads to Kame House with the others in an attempt to kidnap Gohan on Garlic Jr.'s orders. When Piccolo intervenes Vinegar fights with the others.

After the death of Salt and Mustard, Vinegar attacks Krillin and defeats him but is blasted away by Gohan. When the Makyo Star approaches Earth, his power increases many times over and transforms using the Gigantification technique. He fights Krillin again, beating him up and kicking him over the edge of The Lookout. Vinegar is then killed by an enraged Gohan who fires two simultaneous Masenkos at him and Spice, destroying them both.



When Vinegar fought Krillin in battle he was able to defeat him but when Gohan intervened he was easily defeated. When the Makyo Star approaches Earth, his power grew by many fold and once again easily defeated Krillin. He was however killed by Gohan after he became angry.
