Divine Dragon Shenron Statue
The symbol of the Dragon Ball universe, the Divine Dragon Shenron. This beautiful statue perfectly captures Shenron’s details, from the whiskers down to dramatic undulating poses. Shénlóng “Dragon God“, Shenron in Funimation’s anime dub, also known as the Eternal Dragon in the Ocean and Funimation dubs and as the Dragon God in the Harmony Gold dub, is the wish-granting dragon summoned when all 7 of Earth’s Dragon Balls are gathered together. Throughout the series, several rules on the Dragon Balls’ use and limitations on Shenron’s power are explained. After the wish is granted the balls scatter across the planet, turn to stone, are useless for a year, and cannot be detected by Bulma’s Dragon Radar. The Dragon Balls also become useless if Shenron is destroyed, and in this case, they must be recreated by their creator. If their creator is killed, Shenron cannot bestow a wish that exceeds the power of his creator, such as Shenron being unable to destroy the Saiyans before they came to earth.
Midway through the series, the Dragon Balls are revealed to have been created by the Namekians, Earth’s Kami being one of them. A person can only be brought back to life once, and only if that person did not die of natural causes. Earth is without Dragon Balls for a period when Kami re-merges with Piccolo until Dende takes over the position of God. When Dende recreates Earth’s Dragon Balls, he makes it so that 2 wishes can be made at once, but each wish is still capable of resurrecting multiple individuals immediately. Shenron’s Namekian counterpart is Porunga “God of Dreams“. Porunga has a large, muscular humanoid upper body and a dorsal fin down his back. The Porunga’s Dragon Balls are larger than Earth’s. Unlike Shenron, he can only bring a single person back to life at a time, but he can bring that person back multiple times whereas Shenron cannot. He can also grant 3 wishes instead of 1, and the user must speak in the Namekian language.
Porunga and the Namekian Dragon Balls were created by the planet’s Great Elder, who kept one ball and gave each of the other 6 to a different elder. When the Namekian Dragon Balls are used in the fight with Majin Buu, Porunga is upgraded, and can wish back multiple people at once and still grant 3 wishes. Dragon Ball Super introduces Super Shenlong and the Super Dragon Balls which are spread throughout Universes 6 and 7. The Super Dragon Balls were created by the Dragon God Zalama, are the size of planets and have no restrictions on their wishes, although they only grant 1 and it must be spoken in the language of the Gods. The Namekians took fragments of the Super Dragon Balls to create their own version on Namek. Dragon Ball Shenron Statue measures: 11 inches / 28 cm x 5 inches / 13 cm x 11 inches / 28 cm.
