The Five-Star Dragon (サイヤパワー玉砕!?電気獣五星龍, Saiya pawa gyokusai!? Denkiju Ushinron) is the third episode of the Shadow Dragon Saga and the fiftieth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on June 25, 1997. Its original American air date was October 23, 2004.
During Goku and Pan's continuing quest for the Dragon Balls, they stumble upon an abandoned city. They are warned away by a couple that blames the mass exodus on a slime that absorbs electricity. After resolving to stay and complete their task, they find Rage Shenron, the Five-Star Dragon. They are, however, very unimpressed by his tiny appearance, not being much taller than a steel can. However, Rage Shenron still boasts that his abilities are far superior to anything Goku or Pan can achieve. Rage Shenron demonstrates his abilities with his Electric Slime, a slimy substance that can electrocute anything it is latched onto. Rage Shenron then demonstrates his ability to turn himself into a titan by absorbing his energized electric slime. Goku transforms into his Super Saiyan 4 state, which angers Rage Shenron. Rage Shenron's electric attacks prove to be insufficient against the Super Saiyan 4, as Goku is not affected at all. Goku attempts to finish the fight by destroying Rage Shenron and his electric slime with a 10x Kamehameha, but surprisingly, much to Rage Shenron's credit, had not only survive the attack, but his electric slime is able to conceal the energy from Goku's attack before sending it back toward Goku. Goku shields Pan from this counter move thus taking the brunt of his own attack. Goku takes a tremendous amount damage and is forced to revert to his childlike normal state. Rage Shenron proceeds with his assault by draining the remaining amount of electricity in the city, making his electric slime grow to a massive size, making him very difficult for Pan and Goku to escape. Rage uses his slime to capture Pan and Goku and attempts to kill them both.
Unfortunately for Rage Shenron, it begins to rain, inducing an explosive short circuit throughout his entire slime body. Withdrawing to a safe distance, Goku and Pan watch as the Shadow Dragon tries in vain to scatter his electric slime again; this, however, proves impossible due to the slime's enormous surface area, which prevents Rage from taking shelter. Following the explosion of his slime body, Rage Shenron returns to his original size. Goku and Pan find the badly injured Rage Shenron amid rubble and ask that he give up. Rage Shenron consented, stating that Pan can take his Dragon Ball, that she and Goku had earned it. However, as Pan reaches out her hand to take the Dragon Ball, Rage Shenron attempts to kill the young girl; Goku promptly destroys the Shadow Dragon with a close-range Kamehameha blast.
- When Rage Shenron flashbacks to Vegeta and Nappa landing on Earth, Nappa is seen wearing a red scouter while in the Dragon Ball Z anime, he wore a blue scouter.
