Diablo Desert

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

The Diablo Desert (ヤムチャ の 荒野, Yamucha no Arano; Literally meaning "Yamucha's Wilderness") is a giant desolate desert on Planet Earth.


The Diablo Desert was the territory of Yamucha and Puar. They robbed people of their money or Hoi Poi Capsules. The Diablo Desert was near Fire Mountain and was also where Pilaf's Castle and the Rabbit Gang's Town was located. One unique feature from the rest of the world was that many big mushroom trees grew here.

Dragon Ball

Yamucha ambushed Oolong and Son Goku here in "Yamcha the Desert Bandit", but he was scared off at the sight of a girl, Bulma Brief. In the next episode, Oolong had a House-Wagon set up in the desert to camp in. Yamucha destroyed it the next morning and followed them out of the desert on the rest of their journey.

Dragon Ball Z

Yamucha returned to the Diablo Desert after the events of the Kid Buu Saga to live his old life here again, though presumably not becoming a bandit again.

Dragon Ball GT

Yamucha was last seen fixing a car out in the desert with Puar in a scene in the last episode of Dragon Ball GT.
