The Namekian Book of Legends is a book mentioned by Shenron in Dragon Ball Super during the Battle of Gods Saga. After being summoned by Goku, Shenron reveals that the Original Super Saiyan God is a figure from Saiyan mythology that currently does not exist, but explains he knows the ritual to create one. His knowledge of the ritual comes from the Namekian Book of Legends.[1]

Despite being of Namekian origin, it is said to contain information on the Super Saiyan God and the ritual to become one.


  • Given that it contains information on the Super Saiyan God, it is likely that at some point in the past the Namekians encountered the Saiyans and at some point made a record of the Saiyan's legends of the Original Super Saiyan God.
  • Given that is contains information on the Super Saiyan God, it may contain other Saiyan legends such as ones pertaining the Original Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan transformation. It might also explain Grand Elder Guru's knowledge of the existence of Super Saiyans.
  • It is the first known book to be of Namekian origin.
