- This article is about the Ancient Saiyan from Dragon Ball Legends. For the minor female Saiyan/Earthling character from Dragon Ball Fusions, see Shalot.
Concept and creation
Shallot was designed by Akira Toriyama.
Shallot is a Saiyan who has a medium build, and hair resembling a much shorter version of Raditz's with a front fringe straying to the right. He wears leather Sadala Saiyan armor, being from the time before Frieza Force armor became standard. His armor plates, greaves, and armbands are blue, and the undershirt and shorts are black. He has silver-blue boots, and a black tail which he lets swing freely, rather than securing it around his waist as most adult Saiyans do.
Shallot has good fighting potential and is quite short tempered and aggressive like usual Saiyans. Although quick to go off at people, Shallot has his own morals and does not like being commanded. Like Goku and Vegeta, he has a strong appetite. He is noted to have a similar personality to Caulifla and the two get along. Shallot also seems to judge a warrior not by power but by how determined they are.
In his timeline of origin, Shallot and his brother Giblet were righteous Ancient Saiyans who fought against the Evil Ancient Saiyans of their time and both sought to emulate the original Super Saiyan God who's bloodline the brothers are descended from and the brothers hoped to one day acquire the power of Super Saiyan God in order to finally defeat the evil Saiyans, wanting to succeed where the original Super Saiyan God had failed indicating they inherited the original Super Saiyan God's righteous spirit.
In his original time Shallot fought the evil Saiyans alongside his twin brother Giblet. At one point Giblet explained to Shallot that the power they needed to obtain to defeat the evil Saiyans was Super Saiyan God, explaining to Shallot that they both possess the potential to become Super Saiyan Gods, due to possessing the same righteous will, declaring them the rightful successors due to the blood of the Super Saiyan God running through their veins.
Shallot woke up in the start of the storyline of Dragon Ball Legends, unsure of how he got there or who he really was. The only real memory he retained was one where he was commanded to run, and was called by his name. He revealed this to Trunks when he was asked.
Dragon Ball Legends
Main article: Dragon Ball Legends After encountering and fighting Broly alongside Goku, the two are informed by Zahha about a Tournament of Time in which people from all places in time would compete, and the winner would receive a wish on the Super Dragon Balls. Although reluctant to accept that he was in it, he joins as Zahha's ally, and also allies with a young Bulma and the current age Jaco to learn more about the era before coming across Raditz . After being defeated by Raditz, a version of Vegeta from the past is demanded by Beerus to train Shallot, Zahha, and a young Gohan, who become mentored by him and an enthusiastic Nappa. After defeating Vegeta as the final trial in his training, Shallot successfully defeats a seemingly empowered Raditz, and is offered by Beerus and the current-age Goku to help find the real culprit behind the tournament. Though Shallot ends up agreeing, Zahha is not as trustworthy of Beerus, and after a friendly spar parts ways with Shallot.
Afterwards, Shallot comes across several members of the Frieza Force, including Dodoria and Zarbon, who are certain that Shallot has destroyed a city and wiped out their men. Shallot comes across a man who looks like him in a red hood, called the Saiyan in Red. Though the Saiyan in Red nearly defeats him, the current-age Goku comes to Shallot's rescue. Before the Saiyan in Red flees, he calls Shallot "the blood of the defeated" and Goku "the blood of the tainted." Reporting the situation to Beerus, Goku decides to fight Shallot to see if there is any difference between his ki and the Saiyan in Red. Though their ki is the same for the most part, there's a difference Goku can't describe. Whis reveals that Shallot is an "ancient Saiyan" whose ki somehow differs from Goku, and believes this may be relevant to the titles the Saiyan in Red used to describe them. Beerus briefly speculates whether the mysterious Saiyan they encountered was Shallot from a different era, or a situation similar to Goku Black.
Later, young Bulma is captured by members of the Frieza Force led by Turles, which leads to Shallot infiltrating them while pretending to join. It is revealed by a version of Frieza from the past that his forces are divided and have started fighting between one another. It's later shown that Turles has been boosting the power of his soldiers by giving them fruit from the Tree of Might. While under the command of Frieza, Shallot and Appule have to find powerful warriors to join the Frieza Force. After being attacked by some of Turles' men, Whis convinces Shallot to look for Nappa and Vegeta to recruit them into the Frieza Force. Shallot finds the two and easily convinces them to join and the three find Appule who has found and recruited Android 19. Later after returning to Frieza, Android 19 is revealed to be a spy and as soon as he found Frieza's location, he leaves while sending some Copymen to attack Shallot so he doesn't follow.
After the fight, Frieza kills Appule for bringing Android 19 and compromising the Frieza Force. This enrages Shallot, who attempts to kill Frieza but is stopped and knocked out by Vegeta and Nappa. After Shallot wakes up and receives a stern talk from Vegeta, Shallot and the other two Saiyans accompany Frieza to a destroyed city to find Zarbon and Dodoria.
Eventually Shallot aids Frieza in defeating Frost. When facing Frieza, Shallot becomes a Super Saiyan for the first time to defeat him.
When Babidi resurrects Majin Buu, Shallot trains with Goku to become a Super Saiyan 3. Upon completing his training in the Hyperbolic Time chamber, Shallot defeats Buu with his Super Saiyan 3 form.
By the time Buu has become Super Buu and absorbed Gohan, no one stands a chance against him, as such Shallot has to find five righteous Saiyans to become Super Saiyan God - he does so and defeats Super Buu, who flees. As he becomes Super Saiyan God he regains some memories of his past with Giblet.
Shallot encounters Giblet once more, who reveals that he too can become a Super Saiyan God, the two then proceed to battle - proving even with one another.

Shallot is able to easily take down multiple Saibamen. Shallot is noted by Broly to be a weakling compared to Goku and Future Trunks in their Super Saiyan forms, and Future Trunks thinks that Shallot is out of his depth trying to help them fight Broly. Later in the story, Shallot is considerably weaker than an abnormally strong Raditz at the beginning of their fight, but becomes much needed help in the battle as it wages on. Later towards the end of the first chapter Shallot has the power to defeat both Zarbon and Dodoria, with their boss Frieza later commending his power.
After befriending Goku and training against his Super Saiyan form, Goku notes Shallot should already have the power to transform into one. Whis, however, theorizes that something personally and subconsciously may be holding him back.
After additional training under Vegeta and Nappa, as well as Captain Ginyu, Shallot is strong enough that the Ginyu Force is unable to defeat him one on one and he is able to fight on par with Frieza's second form, however, he is still outclassed by Frieza's third form until he receives a boost with help from Vegeta.
After Shallot achieves Super Saiyan, he is strong enough to barely defeat a Final Form Frieza who has been strengthened by eating a fruit from the Tree of Might. However, he admits to being weaker then Super Saiyan Full Power Goku and barely matches up to a non-serious Dabura. His Super Saiyan form is later shown to be roughly on par with Android 16. However, Shallot is shown to not stand a chance against Semi-Perfect Cell.
After achieving Super Saiyan 2, Shallot is considered to a bigger threat than Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (Teen) by Cell.
After intense training with Goku in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, beside getting far stronger than before, Shallot achieves Super Saiyan 3, being able to surpass the powered-up Innocent Buu, angering the Majin and shocking Babidi.
He later proves to be able to match Giblet's base form as a Super Saiyan 2 as well as go toe to toe with him in his enhanced dark ki state while as a Super Saiyan 3. However he proves to be at a disadvantage due to the form's massive energy consumption. He is also much weaker than Super Saiyan God Goku, who could handle Giblet with ease. It is noted that Shallot is still no match for Beerus or Whis. However, Whis suggests that Shallot should focus on getting stronger by fighting people in his base form, pointing out that Shallot is able to fight opponents like Third Form Frieza and Semi-Perfect Cell with ease.
When facing off against Lord Slug, he proves to be able to handle him easily. However after Slug uses his dark ki state, Shallot is forced to use Super Saiyan in order to fight him on better terms. Slug proves to be no match for Shallot in his Super Saiyan form, being forced to flee. Shallot later notes that the the dark ki infused in Slug was different than usual, which Giblet later explains as being due to the mastermind using the energy collected by Babidi in order to empower his warriors.
When facing off against Majin Vegeta in his Super Saiyan 2 form, he is quickly knocked backwards by a single attack while in base form. Once Shallot ascends to Super Saiyan 2 however, the two prove to be evenly matched, which results in Vegeta using the improved dark ki technique that Giblet had displayed. This forces Shallot to transform into his Super Saiyan 3 form which allows him to outmatch Vegeta's dark ki empowered Super Saiyan 2.
When facing against the Androids 13, 14 and 15, he is overwhelmed in his base form at first due to the Androids having analyzed Shallot's moves and fighting style in their previous fights as well as becoming stronger thanks to upgrading. After teaming up with Bardock they manage to overwhelm the androids due to their unpredictable fighting styles, and working together against them. Against a dark ki enhanced Frost, Shallot proves to be able to match him in only his base form, causing Frost to resort to poisoning him in order to win.
During his second fight against Majin Vegeta, Shallot is initially at a disadvantage as a Super Saiyan 2, forcing him to ascend to Super Saiyan 3. This excites Majin Vegeta, though their battle is interrupted by Super Buu (Gohan absorbed). Shallot proves to be no match against Super Buu (Gohan absorbed) even when using Super Saiyan 3, being totally outmatched and almost defeated.
When facing off against Android 13 for the second time, Shallot is at a major disadvantage in his base form, which only worsens once 13 is enhanced with the improved dark ki and starts overwhelming Shallot, who's still in his base form. But once Shallot transforms into a Super Saiyan 3, the tables turn. Shallot starts pressuring Android 13 and eventually defeats him, forcing him and 15 to retreat for the time being. When Whis finds Shallot after finding Caulifla and Kale , he is impressed and happy with Shallot's growth in strength.
While Beerus is impressed by Shallot's Super Saiyan God power, he does note that Shallot is nowhere near the level of power that Super Saiyan God Goku had when he first battled Beerus. though Shallot soon reveals that he was holding back as to not damage the planet and impresses Beerus with the amount of power that he could release. Beerus even admits that he was getting excited during their fight.

His energy is also orange with the silhouette of a Great Ape's face behind him. Once the power up is complete, Shallot's appearance returns to normal. First assumed in his rematch with Raditz.
- Super Saiyan
"You will die here and now, Frieza! By my Saiyan hands! I'm going to bring back Vegeta's and the Saiyan race's pride!"
While Shallot fights Frieza alongside Vegeta, Frieza turns into his final form and kills Vegeta. Determined to avenge Vegeta and defend his Saiyan pride, as well as angered at Frieza for mocking the Saiyans, Shallot turns into a Super Saiyan. His hair and tail turn gold, and his eyes turn greenish-blue. In this form, Shallot is strong enough to fight Frieza after he's eaten Fruit of the Tree of Might.
After a week of training with Zahha and Gohan, Shallot learns how to maintain his Super Saiyan form with less stress on his body.

- Shallot's name comes from "shallot", a type of onion.
- An unrelated female 3/4 Saiyan 1/4 Earthling named Shalot appears in Dragon Ball Fusions. Additionally his name also resembles Eschalot the Saiyan name Vegeta had originally intended to give to Bulla before Bulma beat him to it.

- When assuming his powered-up state, Shallot's eyes become red just as they are for a split second in the opening cutscenes for Legends.

- Shallot is the second Ancient Saiyan known to have achieved the Super Saiyan God form via the Super Saiyan God ritual, with the first being his apparent ancestor Yamoshi. He is also the only Saiyan besides Yamoshi to possess a Tail when he achieves the transformation.
- Similar to his Super Saiyan forms' golden tail fur, the fur of Shallot's tail turns the same red color as his hair when in his Super Saiyan God form.
- Currently it is unknown how his brother Giblet acquired his Super Saiyan God form.
- Interestingly, the fur of Shallot's tail in his base state is the same black color as his hair, rather than the typical brown.
- Somehow, Shallot has an amazing sense of smell that is the equivalent of sensing ki in a way
