Zalama (ザラマ Zarama) is a Dragon God (龍神 Ryūjin) and the creator of the Super Dragon Balls.
In the 41st year of the Divine Calendar, Zalama formed the Super Dragon Balls. He shaped the balls to be the size of planets, about 37,196 kilometers in circumference. One year later, he patented the technology that made star marks on Super Dragon Balls look the same from every angle. He created the phrase to summon the Divine Dragon, "Come forth, Dragon of the Gods, and grant my wish pretty peas!" ("Dragon of the Gods" is changed to "Divine Dragon" and "Pretty Peas" is changed to "Peas and Carrots" in the Funimation dub). He also programmed the Super Dragon Balls to scatter throughout Universe 6 and Universe 7 after a wish is made.
The full extent of Zalama's power is unknown, but he was able to create the Super Dragon Balls and their divine dragon Super Shenron with no limitations to the wish that can be granted, though the dragon is only allowed to grant one wish per summoning.
- Zalama's name is likely a pun on the word "salamander" (サラマンダー).
- ↑ English dub of "Off to See Master Zuno! Find Out Where the Super Dragon Balls Are!"
