Ultimate Shenron or Black Star Shenron (神龍, Burakku Suta Shenlong) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "A Devastating Wish", the first episode of Dragon Ball GT, which premiered on February 7, 1996.


Black Star Shenron is the third out of four Eternal Dragons introduced in Dragon Ball. Like his brother Shenron, Black Smoke Shenron and counterpart Porunga, he too can only be summoned using a particular collection of Dragon Balls, the Black Star Dragon Balls. Like the original incarnation/brother of Shenron, Black Star Shenron is only capable of granting a single wish, however his capabilities greatly outclass those of his Eternal Dragon brothers. For instance, death wishes do not exceed Black Star Shenron's power. For wishes that do not exceed the regular Shenron's power (such as restoring someone's youth), the wish is still so powerful that only a second wish to Black Star Shenron can permanently reverse it. After a wish has been granted by the deity, the Black Star Dragon Balls are catapulted throughout the galaxy rather than their respective planet, and a one-year countdown is issued for the host planet's destruction which can only be undone if the Dragon Balls are returned to that planet within this time. In Dragon Ball GT, Black Star Shenron is used to cause Goku's body to physically regress to childhood, in a wish accidentally made by Emperor Pilaf. He is later summoned by Baby in the episode "The Game After Life", where he is instructed to restore Planet Vegeta (renamed to the "Tuffle Planet") and relocate it to Earth's solar system.

While Shenron and Porunga are both shown to be comparable in size to a large skyscraper, Black Star Shenron is shown to be larger than each of these Eternal Dragons combined. While coiling, Shenron has been shown as being roughly the size of Kami's Lookout. Black Star Shenron on the other hand is so large that his head alone is roughly the size of the lookout. Also, while Shenron has his "whiskers" on the upper part of his mouth, Black Star Shenron has them on the lower part of its mouth. Interestingly enough, he lacks the red eyes that the other eternal dragons have, and instead has yellow ones.

Later, he is revived and summoned by Dillain in Ratatosk Island 2 then grant him to Sasuke will be never alive again only just sealed.
