Dark Shenron (暗黒神龍 Ankoku Shenron, lit. "Dark Divine Dragon" or "Dark God Dragon") is the demonic Eternal Dragon of the Dark Dragon Balls.
Dark Shenron has a body similar to Porunga, albeit somewhat more slender and not as muscular. His head resembles that of Shenron, Ultimate Shenron, and Black Smoke Shenron in overall shape, but he has a longer mane and long blue lizard-like tongue. Additionally, his appearance is demonic like Black Smoke Shenron's, befitting his origins and the nature of the Dark Dragon Balls that summon him.
Dragon Ball Heroes
Dark Empire Saga
Main article: Dark Empire Saga
Dark Shenron is summoned by Mechikabura above Mechikabura's Tower in the Demon Realm, and is instructed to give him eternal youth. Dark Shenron warns him that the wish will take time to complete due to the size of Mechikabura's former power, and Mechikabura agrees to wait.
When the tower is assaulted by the Time Patrol, who aim to kill Dark Shenron to stop the wish from being granted, Dark Shenron assists Mechikabura, Mira and Dabura as they attempt to stall the group. Ultimately, Dark Shenron is able to complete the wish, and he departs.
Dark King Mechikabura Saga
Main article: Dark King Mechikabura Saga Dark Shenron is summoned to the Time Nest by Demigra, Robelu and the Time Patrol using darkness-infused Earth Dragon Balls. Xeno Trunks tries to wish for Mechikabura's brainwashing of Chronoa to be undone, but Dark Shenron is unable to directly go against Mechikabura's power. Demigra instead wishes for himself to be given the power to generally undo Mechikabura's mind control, which Dark Shenron is able to complete, though he is only able to give Demigra the ability at close-range.
Dark Shenron is later summoned to Mechikabura's Tower by Mechikabura, who wishes for Dark Shenron to use the Chaos created by Mechikabura using Chronoa's time power to destroy the universe's spacetime. Despite the Time Patrol's best efforts, Dark Shenron is able to carry out Mechikabura's wish.
When first summoned, Dark Shenron's power is so great that it causes time and space to distort. Like Shenron, Dark Shenron possesses the power to grant wishes, he is able to restore Mechikabura to his prime level of power - though he finds this very difficult and so the wish takes a long time to complete. The Dark Dragon Balls needed to summon him spread throughout time and space possessing evil beings and increasing their power. In the manga, he is able to take out Super Saiyan 3 Xeno Trunks in a single blow.
