The Eternal Dragon Rises (神龍ふたたび Shenron Futatabi, lit. "Once Again, God Dragon") is the eleventh episode of the Fortuneteller Baba Saga and the seventy-eighth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on September 9, 1987.



Shenron is summoned

Goku flies back to Fortuneteller Baba's Palace with all the Dragon Balls and takes Upa to the Sacred Land of Korin. Yamcha wants to train with Master Roshi, who does not feel up to it, but Bulma changes his mind. Goku summons the eternal dragon Shenron and with a pluck of his courage, Upa wishes for his father to be resurrected. The dragon grants the wish and Bora rises from his grave. Upa delightfully embraces his father and the dragon vanishes into the seven balls. Before they can scatter, Goku grabs the four star ball, that had already turned to stone. Goku bids Bora and Upa farewell and heads back to Baba's place. Roshi says that he has nothing more to teach Goku, and that he would be better off training on his own and experiencing the world for himself. Master Roshi tells Goku that he will get more training by walking instead of riding on the Flying Nimbus, so Goku obeys and starts his journey across the globe while Yamcha and Krillin head off to Kame House, for another round of training.


  • The wish later brought forth Haze Shenron in Dragon Ball GT.
  • Bora thanks Goku for all his help saying he is a "gift from the stars." Ironically, this would be later proven true as Goku is later revealed to be an alien from the Saiyan race.
