Black Smoke Shenron (Aku Shenlong; English "Evil Shenron") is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut (and ultimately, his only appearance) in "The Greatest Surprise", the 47th episode of Dragon Ball GT, which premiered on June 4, 1997.
Black Smoke Shenron is the ultimate Shadow Dragon. The Shadow Dragons born from the overuse of Dragon Balls for selfless wishes (with the exception of one born from an extremely selfish desire) are all initially manifested within Black Smoke Shenron.
When Goku and friends attempt to use the Dragon Balls to restore the lives of the people killed during Super 17's crusade, it is Black Smoke Shenron who emerges from the artifacts. Before long, the mysterious deity splits into seven individual Shadow Dragons. Elder Kai observes that every time the Dragon Balls have been used in the past, the negative energy housed within each individual ball would increase. When this energy completely filled the Dragon Balls, they cracked, allowing Black Smoke Shenron to escape and release his seven personas.
