Makyans (Makyo-seijin; also referred to as "the Serpent race") were the natives of the Makyo Star before its destruction.
Initially, the Makyans were only a handful of members, and among them were Garlic and Garlic Jr. Garlic was the notable creator of a portal to the Dead Zone.
Features of Makyans vary, but of their most common traits are pointed ears and fangs. They have a natural transformation which causes extreme growth of the body and an increase in strength. All Makyans that appeared were evil and violent, though it is unknown if this is common among their species.
