"It's simple. You want to wish for the things you obviously don't have...good taste, clothes that fit, a little height."
Haze Shenron, known as Liang Xing Long (二星龍 Ryan Shinron, lit. "Two-Star Dragon") in the Japanese version, is the Two-Star Dragon and represents the element of pollution or toxicity.
Haze Shenron is a bulky green Dragon with a light yellow underbelly. He has sharp fangs, nostrils, and a blue crystal embedded in his forehead. His eyes are yellow, with small black pupils. He has black spikes protruding from his shoulders, his elbows, his back, and his knees. His hands and feet have black claws, and he has a serpentine tail.
Haze Shenron, like the other Shadow Dragons, is very arrogant and constantly belittles his opponents. Despite this he can get embarrassed as when he admitted that he couldn't transform. At first glance he appears to be an incompetent fool not knowing when to give up, but this is actually a ploy to prolong fights so his poison can have time to take effect draining his opponent's strength, showing a more cunning side. He also can be somewhat sadistic as he threatened to eat Pan and threw both her and Goku into a toxic lake to dissolve in it. He is very proud of both his poison and his achievements as he called the destruction caused by his poison "beautiful" and boasted his superiority when he thought he defeated Goku and Pan.
He appears to be lazy as he would rather let his poison drain his opponent's strength than train to be stronger himself. He also views transformations as cheap tricks used by desperate cowards. But in the end despite all of his talk, he really is just a coward who would try to run away the moment he has to deal with someone actually strong.

Although he seems to have tremendous durability, Haze Shenron is physically one of the weakest of the Shadow Dragons; he felt a great amount of pain when a single brick fell on his foot, and Pan was able to completely dominate him by herself. However, his elemental abilities are his trump card; the pollution he generates slowly weakens normal beings, so while he remains relatively weak when it comes to scouter readings, his opponents gradually weaken until he is able to overpower them. However, his pollution has no effect on non-organic beings, such as the Machine Mutant Giru.
After his pollution brings Goku and Pan to manageable levels of power, Haze Shenron beats up the heroes and throws them into a polluted lake. Unfortunately for him, Giru drags them both to a fresh water geyser, which Goku and Pan blow up to clear the lake of Haze's pollution. With his only advantage gone, the Two-Star Dragon is destroyed when Goku and Pan combine Kamehamehas to blast him into the water.
Haze is the weakest among the Shadow Dragons (at least according to Rage Shenron). He is shown injured by a brick falling onto his foot and is easily knocked around by Pan. He is only proficient in battle after his element of toxicity/pollution has taken its toll on his enemies, and even then with their ki completely drained he still takes time to finish them off. His frailness makes him more a comic relief than an actual foe. Overall, his endurance more than his raw power is what prevents to be taken lightly by his opponents and by the time they discover his strategy it might be already too late to defeat him. In the Japanese version, Goku also states that he's very weak.
In his base form Haze Shenron is no match for Froze, however when he is transformed into Super Haze Shenron by Oceanus Shenron he is able to overwhelm Froze for a brief time before he is destroyed by Froze's Spirit Excalibur and Death Psycho Bomb combo.

- Haze Shenron is one of the two Shadow Dragons (along with Oceanus Shenron) that Goku did not use his Super Saiyan 4 form against.
- Out of all the Shadow Dragons, Haze is the only one that closely resembles a Dragon.
- Haze Shenron is formed around the Two-Star Ball. Appropriately, this was the Dragon Ball that Bulma found lying around Capsule Corporation which led to the creation of the Dragon Radar and her hunt for the other six that started the entire series.
- Additionally, he is the second eldest Shadow Dragon (the Eldest being Oceanus Shenron) as the wish that created him was the second wish made in Dragon Ball. This makes him the only Shadow Dragon who's Dragon Ball number coresponds with his birth order as he's the second eldest and the Two-Star Shadow Dragon.
- Haze Shenron's Japanese name, Liang Xing Long, is grammatically incorrect in Chinese, as the Two-Star Dragon Ball is known as Er Xing Qiu (二星球 Arushinchū) in Japanese. While "liang" means "two" in Chinese, it is only used for counting and measuring things, and should not be used in the name of a proper noun.
- Haze Shenron was created from Goku's wish to bring Bora back to life, this is ironic as Bora dedicated his life to protect the land around Korin Tower, whereas Haze's power is to pollute the environment with his poison.
