Shroom (シュルム Shurumu), alternatively known as Demon God Shroom (魔神シュルム Majin Shurumu) is a Demon God of the Dark Empire who serves Mechikabura. Shroom is the Dark Empire's god of death, and is thus a grim reaper.
Shroom is a demon with light purple skin and spiky silver hair which he holds up with a bandana that covers his forehead. He wears blue potara earrings on his ears, which are rounded instead of pointed like that of most Demons' ears. He wields a dark Scythe the size of his body as his primary weapon.
He is noted to be even more unhinged than any other Demon God, granting him the title of Death God. He has no qualms with killing one of his own henchmen in order to strike a blow on an opponent. He hates having to teleport. He refers to Gravy as "old man".

- Xeno Janemba Saga
In the manga, in a version of Age 774, Towa who has appeared in Hell along with the Grim Reaper Shroom to retrieve the Five-Star Dark Dragon Ball from Xeno Janemba, easily defeats that timelines Goku.
Shroom calls upon a Grim Reaper Soldier who appears from a portal in the ground and attacks Janemba. When Janemba attempts to retaliate with a kick, the soldier grabs a hold of his leg. Shroom then uses his Scythe to cut through the two of them in one swipe. Janemba however rematerializes gaining more power than before due to the Dark Dragon Ball.
This time, Shroom goes in for the attack personally and while at first Janemba is able to put up a decent fight he is ultimately cut in half again and the Dark Dragon Ball falls to the ground.
However, before Towa can retrieve the ball, Xeno Goku, Xeno Vegeta and Chamel show up in front of them. Chamel vows to destroy Towa and Shroom with Towa commenting that Chamel had betrayed them after all. Chamel tells Goku and Vegeta to attack Shroom while he deals with Towa and they all begin to battle. Goku and Vegeta struggle against Shroom as they have little strength after having their souls mowed, one of Shroom's special abilities.
- Mechikabura Revival Saga
He appears once again along with the rest of the Demon Gods when Mechikabura is using Dark Shenron to have his youth restored and attempts to buy as much time for his master as possible by holding off the Time Patrol. In the manga he confronts Super Saiyan Xeno Goten in battle briefly.

- Descent of the Demon Gods
After Mechikabura escapes from the Time Labyrinth, Gravy along with the other Demons are granted a more powerful Demon God state.
While maintaining the barrier to Mechikabura's Palace, Xeno Gohan travels through the black Hell Gate in order to confront him only to be followed by Xeno Pan. Shroom fires off an energy wave from his scythe and Xeno Gohan narrowly moves Xeno Pan out of the way. Xeno Gohan shouts at Pan for being a distraction and she flees the scene in tears. Xeno Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan and engages Shroom in battle. He manages to kick Shroom to the ground but then notices a small cut on his face from the scythe. Xeno Gohan falls to the ground and reverts back to his normal state as Shroom tells him that he has harvested some of his spirit.
As he is about to finish off Xeno Gohan he is suddenly blasted from behind by Xeno Pan who had returned to the battlefield and spurs on her father to get back up. Shrooms begins to make his way over to Xeno Pan when Xeno Gohan grabs his cloak. When Shroom turns around he see's Xeno Gohan standing there now as a Super Saiyan 4. Xeno Gohan hits Shroom and knocks him to the floor. Shroom charges at Xeno Gohan with his scythe but in a surprise move instead throws it at Xeno Pan. Xeno Gohan deflects it however and follows up with a powerful Kamehameha that destroys Shroom at last.
In the video game, Shroom appears guarding the final Hell Gate of Mechikabura's Tower along with Dr. Gero, Dr. Myuu, Android 17 and Hell Fighter 17. He attacks Xeno Goten, but is unable to prevent him from sealing the gate. He later fights the Time Patrol alongside his fellow Demon Gods and Fin, until Towa recalls the group into Mechikabura's Tower.
Shroom is able to defeat Evil Demon Janemba in battle. He then goes on to overwhelm base Xeno Goku and base Xeno Vegeta and soon after matches Chamel in combat. Shroom proves to be an even match for Super Saiyan Xeno Gogeta in battle, with them fighting evenly until Gogeta's fusion time runs out. He was able to hold an advantage over the injured Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Goku (who has very little stamina remaining).
During his final battle against Xeno Gohan, he was able to gain an advantage against him as a Super Saiyan by cutting him across the cheek with his scythe and draining his spirit. However when Xeno Gohan transformed into a Super Saiyan 4, Shroom is killed by a Kamehameha.
In the Dark King Mechikabura Saga, even with assistance from Android 17 (GT), Hell Fighter 17, Gero and Myuu, Demon God Shroom is defeated by Xeno Goten.
