Inside the sinister-looking fortress, there is a throne room, a garden, a fruit tree, a cuckoo clock, and a storey with a balcony.
Garlic Jr.'s castle-like lair was first seen in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone. Nicky was in charge of doing baby sitting for Gohan when the child ate a fruit from the fruit tree and became euphoric. Goku fought Ginger and Nicky at the entrance room, while Piccolo fought Sansho on the storey. Kami fought Garlic Jr. in the garden; it was also in the garden where Garlic Jr. opened the Dead Zone.
The ruined Garlic Jr.'s fortress is later seen in the first episode "The Heavens Tremble" of the Garlic Jr. Saga, when Garlic Jr. escapes from the Dead Zone and came back to Earth with the Spice Boys.
Garlic Jr.'s fortress appears in Dragon Ball Z: Kyōshū! Saiyan. It is where the final confrontaton with Garlic Jr. and the Makyans occurs in the game.
