The True Dragon God (いでよ本場の神龍！！, Ide yo Honba no Shenron!!; lit. "Come Forth, Genuine Shenlong!!") is the two hundred ninety-second chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. This chapter's anime counterpart is the second half of the episode "Password is Porunga" and the beginning of the episode "Piccolo's Return".
Dende and Krillin, having just met up while flying, discuss what to do next. Dende reveals that Guru has told him the secret to using the Dragon Balls: the incantation must be spoken in Namekian. At Frieza's spaceship, Vegeta takes a nap while Gohan waits. Gohan senses the ki of Krillin and Dende, who soon arrive. When Gohan informs him that Vegeta is asleep, Krillin proposes that they take the Dragon Balls and make their wish before he wakes up. Gohan and Dende agree, and they successfully sneak off with the Dragon Balls.
However, Gohan and Krillin sense Frieza coming towards them quickly. Dende hurriedly chants the incantation in Namekian. The sky darkens, and Porunga appears, whom Dende calls the "God of Dreams." From his planet in Other World, King Kai watches excitedly with the dead Z Fighters. Porunga says he will grant three wishes, which excites Krillin (as Shenron can only grant one at a time). Their first wish is to revive everyone killed by the Saiyans on Earth, but Porunga can only revive one person at a time. King Kai delivers the bad news to his companions, and Piccolo demands that he be allowed to speak with Gohan.
