- This article is about the in-universe location. For the anime volume, see Pendulum Room (volume).
The Pendulum Room (時の部屋 Toki no Heya, lit. "Room of Time"), formerly known as the Time Room, is a room on The Lookout that allows a person (in the original Dragon Ball) or a person's mind (in Dragon Ball Z) to journey through time.
In Dragon Ball, the room is known as the Time Room and contains numerous clocks, a portal to the past will open on one of the falls when the user wishes to travel back in time. In Dragon Ball Z, the Pendulum Room is named for the huge pendulum swinging back in forth in it. The pendulum swings over a ring, which a person must stand in if he or she wishes to be transported by the pendulum.
The "time travel" of the Pendulum Room does not alter any past events, as the interactions that character's sent back have with the past never happen.
Dragon Ball Z
Later, in the Dragon Ball Z episode "Pendulum Room Peril", Krillin, Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu and Yamcha use the room to travel to Planet Vegeta over a hundred years in the past and fight two Saiyans named Shorty and Scarface. It is revealed that it is impossible to be killed in the Pendulum Room despite what events may occur in the visions the room induces.
