"You came here looking to fight us, but the battle has already been won. There's no one left to fight for, nobody wants your help. Can't you understand that? Just look. Look at your friends. Do they look like they're waiting for a knight in shining armor to come and rescue them?"
Gash in "Battle in Kami's Lookout"

Gash (ガッシュ, Gasshu; FUNimation "Spice") is the leader of the Four Monarchs.

Gash's Japanese name may be a pun on the word Kashū, or Cashew in English.


Dragon Ball Z

Gash was Garlic Junior's right-hand man during the Garlic Jr. Saga. He was a formidable warrior in his own right. Being the strongest of the Four Monarchs, he possessed a frightening speed and ruthlessness, his speed even shocking Son Gohan. He had light blue skin, long pointy elf-like ears, and wore armor similar to that of Freeza's soldiers, but pink. He was modeled after Zarbon and shared similar traits. In addition, he bore a cape just as Zarbon did. During the Garlic Jr. Saga, he explained the presence of Planet Makyo and its origins. Spice knew of Piccolo and Gohan and their past, such as Piccolo's fascination with the dark side and the fact that Gohan managed to defeat Garlic Jr. He is also the only one of the Spice Boys who initially knows everything about Planet Makyo and the Black Water Mist. His personality is calm, and as such he speaks with a calm, light-pitched, Australian accent. He is slightly cynical, proud, like fellow Spice Boys, and has an appetite for fighting. He is very intelligent and informative, having complete confidence in himself, and his lord, Garlic Jr., who has his complete devotion and respect. He is unique due to his being a demon with enchanter-like abilities, including the strange ability to grow his hair extremely long and strangle opponents, as well as using an energy web to trap opponents, and a freeze hold he uses by raising his palm. Spice offers positions as Garlic Jr.'s soldiers to Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo. During Krillin and Gohan's fight with Salt and Mustard, Spice and Vinegar stand by as spectators, while Spice makes cynical comments on the fight.

After Tard and Zald were killed by Gohan, he and Vinegar expressed anger and attempted a combination maneuver which was interrupted by Piccolo. He was impaled on a long spike during his fight with Gohan and presumed dead. Like Garlic Jr. and Vinegar, however, he was completely healed of his fatal injuries and his power increased greatly when Planet Makyo was in Earth's orbit. As a result, he ultimately becomes much larger and more muscular, as well as more vicious and bloodthirsty. He again fights Gohan for a while as Vinegar simultaneously battles Krillin. He and Gohan seem evenly matched, even when he has progressed to his muscular form. Later, when Gohan is caught in the middle of Spice and Vinegar, he witnesses an injured Krillin falling, resulting in his anger exploding, and unleashing his latent power. He executes Spice and Vinegar at the same time with a powerful Double Masenko.

  • Like Tard and Zald, Spice and Vinegar have a cooperative attack consisting of red energy orbs. However, the two were unable to launch the technique due to the intervention of Piccolo.
  • The shape of the spike which Gohan uses to impale Spice varies between the uncut and edited dubs. In the uncut dub, the spike appears longer and more serrate, while in the edited dub the spike appears to be stubbier.
