Icarus is a purple dragon whom Gohan befriends as a child. Gohan first encounters Icarus, while saving him from a falling tree that is burning down. Later, in the movie, The Tree of Might Icarus is able to get through to Gohan while he is in the Great Ape form. Later in the Garlic Jr. Saga Icarus once again saves Gohan from being infected by the Black Water Mist, by blocking the entrance to a small cave. In the movie, Coolers Revenge, Icarus is able to fly Gohan to Korins Tower to retrieve Senzu Beans due to the fact that Gohan's power level would be detected by Coolers crew if he flew there himself.
