"I'm very aware of the stupid inane wish that gave me life, but don't even think for a second that you can laugh at me and not suffer the consequences!"
— "The Six-Star Dragon"

Oceanus Shenron (リュウシンロン Ryūshinron) is the Shadow Dragon of water and wind.


Initially, Oceanus Shenron appeared as a young woman with teal colored skin and eyes with long navy blue hair that extends to her lower half of her legs, bare of feet, and wearing an ocean blue dress. She wears three golden bracelets on both of her wrists and ankles and has two gold gem shaped earrings with a gold headband. She has a long head adornment that looks similar to a dragon's tail that extends down to her lower leg. The Six-Star Dragon Ball that is dark blue and cracked due to negative energy is located on her forehead. However, this form is just a disguise.

Oceanus Shenron's "true" form is that of a large teal gargoyle like creature with a large lower jaw, and the Six-Star Dragon Ball is now located on her chin.


Oceanus Shenron is very arrogant and cruel, attacking other creatures such as seagulls and innocent creatures for no apparent reason beyond sadism perhaps not unlike the other Shadow Dragons. She, however, has a sense of shame such as finding the circumstances of her birth to be a source of embarrassment in addition to bearing witness to Goku who was stripped naked from an attack of hers. Because of the perverted nature of the much maligned wish that created her, she also shows a form of hatred towards Oolong. Regarding her True Form, she dislikes its ugly appearance to the point that she uses Shapeshifting to appear more attractive to satisfy her vanity, and she has stated she would kill anyone that witnesses it.



Oceanus is born when Oolong ruins Emperor Pilaf's wish for world domination by wishing for a pair of panties from a "hot babe".

Dragon Ball GT

Shadow Dragon Saga


Oceanus Shenron as Princess Oto

Residents of the local village believe her to be the sea princess, Princess Oto (乙姫 Oto Hime), that gives them fish. She does this by using the wind and water to carry the fish out of the sea, but she destroys the business of many fishermen in doing so. Goku and Pan challenge Oceanus Shenron. Oceanus Shenron attacks Goku by using the wind to knock Goku around. After a few minutes into the fight Oceanus Shenron reveals another special ability she has with the wind; she can hide her real appearance. It turns out Oceanus Shenron shares her looks with her brothers. When she uses her wind attack on Goku again, Pan charges up a Kamehameha wave and blasts her. Then Goku does the same thing; destroying Oceanus Shenron for good and giving the fishermen their business back.

Voice Actors


Dragon Ball GT
  • Oceanus Shenron (Princess Oto) vs. Goku and Pan
  • Oceanus Shenron (Princess Oto) vs. Goku
  • Oceanus Shenron (Princess Oto/Shadow Dragon) vs. Goku, Pan and Gull


  • Oceanus Shenron's name contains the kanji for "six" (), "star" (), and "dragon" ().
  • Since Oceanus was born from the very first wish made onscreen in the entire Dragon Ball series, it is probable that Oceanus is the eldest of all seven Shadow Dragons.
  • Oceanus is the name of the eldest of the Titans born of Gaia and Uranus in Greek mythology (possible a reference to Oceanus Shenron being the eldest Shadow Dragon), and the Titan of the sea before he was overthrown by Poseidon during the Titanomachy.
    • She also bears some resemblance to the Aquarius Zodiac, such as using wind and air for her elemental attacks, having a partial aquatic nature, and like every known Aquarius-born individual, she is wise.
    • Her creation draws inspiration from a Chinese Water Dragon
    • She is based off of Suijin.
  • She is the only female Shadow Dragon. To note she says she kills those who see her true form, suggesting she does not like her true form (which looks and sounds like a male).
  • In the English dub, Oceanus says that she has the power to control water, but she never said anything about that in the original Japanese version. 
  • The original Funimation dub has Oceanus' true form's voice lowered to make her sound more demonic, but the remastered version leaves the voice at its original pitch, albeit with a minor distortion.
  • While Oceanus Shenron was born out of a wish made with selfish desires in mind (e.g., Oolong's wish for a pair of underwear), she still turned out to be as evil as the other Shadow Dragons thanks to the altruistic intention behind Oolong's wish which was to save the world. Thus, just as Oolong's selfish wish disguised his altruistic intent, Oceanus Shenron's true malignant nature was disguised by her seemingly benign actions of providing fish to the people which was actually killing fishing business and polluting the town with the rotten extra fish from providing them too many fish.
  • The name of Oceanus Shenron's alternative form, Princess Oto, is most likely a reference to the Japanese mythological deity Toyotama-hime, better known as Otohime (or Princess Oto). Otohime being the daughter of Ryūjin, the god of the sea, also trails back to Oceanus Shenron's ability to use water-based techniques.
  • In addition to being born of Oolong's wish for the pair of panties, she was born from the Six-Star Ball. Ironically and appropriately for multiple reasons, this is the Ball Goku and Bulma got in Dragon Ball for protecting a village from the then-rogue Oolong.
    • Her use of shapeshifting to make herself more attractive also resembles Oolong's use of the technique in Dragon Ball such as when he used it to make himself appear attractive to Bulma and his shapeshifting into Bulma wearing the Bunny Costume to fool Roshi on Bulma's behalf.
  • Oceanus Shenron is one of the two Shadow Dragons (along with Haze Shenron) that Goku did not use his Super Saiyan 4 form against.
  • The wings that appear on Super Oceanus Shenron's head in Dragon Ball Heroes is a trait commonly seen in depictions of succubus characters in popular media such Morrigan Aensland from the Darkstalkers series. The significance behind this is that succubus creatures are sometimes noted as assuming beautiful guises to mask their true hideous forms and then seduce prey; this trait is demonstrated by Oceanus Shenron hiding her true repulsive appearance through her attractive Princess Oto disguise.
