"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!"
Oceanus Shenron, known as Liu Xing Long (六星龍 Ryū Shinron, lit. "Six-Star Dragon") in the Japanese version, 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, who's bare foot and with a 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 with the Six-Star Dragon Ball now located on her chin.
Oceanus Shenron is very arrogant, not unlike the other Shadow Dragons. She is also quite cruel as she injured many seagulls and attacked innocent people for no reason. The circumstances of her birth are a source of embarrassment to her, as she turns red when Goku asks how she was born. Even Pan blushes, but Goku still thinks it is funny. She was also embarrassed along with Pan when Goku ended up naked because of her attack.
She dislikes the ugly appearance of her True Form to the point she uses Shapeshifting to appear more attractive to satisfy her vanity and has stated she would kill anyone that witnesses her True Form. She also apparently despises Oolong for the perverted nature of the wish that created her.

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.

Main article: Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission
Many years after the events of Dragon Ball GT, in the spin-off manga Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission, Oceanus Shenron is released from Black Smoke Shenron in the Dragon Ball Heroes World when Dr. Auto attempts to make a wish using the cracked Dragon Balls. She possess the Android Hero Nim, and then proceeds to summon Android 17, Hell Fighter 17, Semi-Perfect Cell, and Super Android 13 to aid her in battle against Beat and his allies. Nimu attempts to have Super Android 13 kill Beat in one hit, but Beat disappears, leaving behind his former outfit and using his Super Class Upgrade. Nimu possessed by Oceanus Shenron and Beat battle, with Beat managing to gain the upperhand after he uses Super Class Upgrade and summons his team: Super Saiyan 4 Goku, Super Saiyan 2 Bardock, Adult Gotenks, and GT Gohan. He and his team force Nimu into the ocean. Underwater, Oceanus Shenron comes out of her Dragon Ball and threatens Nimu, before taking full possession of him. Oceanus Shenron continues the battle, and begins to use some of her own attacks. She also has Android 17 and Hell Fighter 17 fuse into Super 17. Super 17 defeats Beat's team, forcing him to transform into a Super Saiyan 3. Beat quickly defeats Nimu and frees him from Oceanus Shenron.
Oceanus appears again and transforms into her Shadow Dragon form, but is attacked by Nimu (who has used the Super Class Upgrade), Super 17 (Cell absorbed), and Beat, defeating her. Oceanus Shenron then re-takes her Princess Oto form and flees.
Later, Haze Shenron summons Oceanus Shenron for help, so she uses her powers in order to transform Haze Shenron into Super Haze Shenron, before taking her leave once more. Eventually Oceanus Shenron arrives back at the Shadow Dragons' nest, only to witness Genome have Super Saiyan 4 Broly slaughter Rage Shenron. Genome then allies himself with Oceanus Shenron, who vows to kill all of the Dragon Ball Heroes and steal their energy.
Unlike her comrades, except for Syn Shenron, Oceanus Shenron also has the power to control more than one element (in her case, the element of water).
In her Princess Oto form, using her wind she is able to overwhelm both base Goku and Pan at the same time however when she is hit by two Kamehameha from the duo in her true Shadow Dragon state she is destroyed.

- 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.
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.
- 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).
- Even though Oceanus Shenron was born out of a selfish wish (e.g., Oolong's wish for a pair of underwear), she still turned out to be as bad as the other Shadow Dragons, which is unusual due to Nuova Shenron being a good Shadow Dragon mainly because of the fact that he was also spawned from a selfish wish (e.g., King Piccolo's wish for eternal youth so he can return to his prime). Of course, Oolong's purpose for making the wish at all was to save the world; just the content of the wish was selfish. Likewise, the content of Oceanus' actions in bringing all the fish for the people made her seem nice at first, but the fact that she brought too much fish, killing the fishing business in that town as well as polluting it from all the rotted extra fish, is more indicative of her true nature.
- 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.
