This a list of all the wishes granted by Shenron in the Dragon Ball series and in related media.

Main series wishes

Before Dragon Ball

  • An otherwise unknown character uses the Dragon Balls to become a king.[1] It is highly probable that the ramifications of this wish are still being felt to the present day, as the entire world is unified into one giant kingdom, with regional provinces dotting the globe, as shown in the King Piccolo Saga.

Dragon Ball


Oolong's wish is granted by Shenron

  • Oolong wishes for a pair of panties off a "hot babe" (though he just yelled the first thing that came to his mind as he was trying to stop Emperor Pilaf from making his own wish). Due to censorship issues, the English dubs changed this wish to "the world's most comfortable pair of ultra-soft underwear" (brought forth Oceanus Shenron in GT).

However Xeno Trunks manages to remember the correct history and finds the source of the change.

Dragon Ball Fusions
  • Tekka and Pinich summon Shenron to wish for a tournament to determine the strongest in time and space. Due to the sheer nature of the wish, Shenron uses a lot of power to grant it and creates the Timespace Rift a warped dimension where different timelines and dimensions are connected allowing different people from different timelines to interact which is necessary for the Timespace Tournament that was created by their wish.
  • In the Timespace Rift in Area 4F near the ruins of his castle, Emperor Pilaf summons Shenron and wishes for a strong fighter to eliminate tournament fighters that had accosted the Pilaf Gang while they were searching for the Dragon Balls. Shenron grants the wish but due to Pilaf no specifying the nature of the fighter, Shenron summons the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly who rampages in search of Kakarot leading him to target Kid Goku. This leads Tekka's Team to summon Towa and Mira by opening time holes that combine into a large rift. Towa turns Broly into a Legendary Great Ape but he is defeated by Tekka's Team and blasted away by Beerus who was alerted to the Timespace Tournament due to Great Ape Broly's energy.
