Shenlong, known as Shenron in the English dub, is the wish granting dragon summoned when all of Earth's Dragon Balls are gathered. Shen Long can bestow any wish as long as it does not exceed the power of his creator, who must be still alive.

Shenron was created by Kami when he arrived on Earth. After Kami fused with Piccolo, Shenron was revived by Dende.

Shenlong cannot bring back a person from the dead more than once. Shen Long can originally only grant one wish, but after being revived by Dende, he is able to grant two at a time. Shenlong often threatens to kill the summoner if they do not quickly make their wish, but never follows through with it.
