|“||This isn't a game and how dare you criticize your own creation. We're here because of you. All the Evil Dragons were born because you misused the Dragon Balls remember? It all started with you. Your world is crumbling because of your actions. You were warned about the over use but you didn't listen. This is all your fault. Hmm a noble monkey? If you feel so bad about it then maybe death should be your penance.||„|
|~ Yi Xing Long|
Yi Xing Long, known as Syn Shenron in the Funimation dub, is the final villain of the Dragon Ball GT anime series. He is the last of the Evil Dragons and the dragon of the One Star Ball. Syn Shenron later becomes Super Yi Xing Long, Omega Shenron in the Funimation dub, after he absorbs all the other Dragon Balls and gains the powers of the other Evil Dragons, allowing his strength to increase 10x what it originally was.
He is the fourth/last of the four arch-villains in Dragon Ball GT and the true main villain of the Evil Dragons saga.
Syn Shenron, like his fellow Evil Dragons was born from the negative energy created within the Dragon Balls, every time a wish was made. In his case, it was the wish that brought back everyone who had been killed by Freeza and his men. Because of the size of this wish, Syn was the most powerful out of all of the Evil Dragons.
Syn Shenron first appeared after Eis Shenron's defeat at the hands of Super Saiyan 4 Son Goku and Nuova Shenron. He killed Nuova for his betrayal and when Goku reprimanded him for killing one of his own kind, Syn told Goku that he was the one who created the Evil Dragons in the first place, because of his overuse of the Dragon Balls. They began to fight, with the battle going in Syn's favor due to Goku being blinded by San Xing Long earlier. Though Goku was able to get in a few hits and even a Kamehameha wave, this did nothing to Syn and he left the hero hanging unconscious from Fairground tower.Just as he was about to move in for the killing blow, Syn found himself confronted by Son Gohan, Son Goten, Uub, Pan, Trunks, Chi-Chi, Videl, and Mr. Satan. While Uub kept the dragon busy, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks gave their energy to Goku. Though Syn defeated Uub and the others with little effort, Goku managed to recover and the second round began. However, Goku was the one dominating the battle now and Syn found himself unable to match the Saiyan. After the dragon attempted a trick using a clock, Goku seemingly wiped him out with a Kamehameha wave. However, Syn was not beaten yet and he used his special ability to swallow the other six Dragon Balls into himself, resulting in the powerful Omega Shenron.
Power of the Ultimate Dragon
Though Goku was able to take on Syn, Omega Shenron was another story and the Saiyan found himself unable to win. Though he regained his eyesight and battered the dragon with a Dragon Hammer. Omega Shenron simply regenerated, an ability he had gained. Goku desperately prepared a self-destruction attack to kill Omega Shenron , until Vegeta arrived on the scene and, with use of a machine that generated the Bruits Waves needed for the transformation, became a Super Saiyan 4 as well. Despite this, Omega Shenron easily took on the pair, until they performed the fusion dance and became Gogeta, who easily managed to take on the Evil Dragon. Gogeta then assaulted him with his Big Bang Kamehameha attack, which was so powerful that Omega Shenron spit up the Dragon Balls, reverting back to Syn Shenron. However, as Gogeta was about to perform the attack again, he defused back into Goku and Vegeta.
Thinking quickly, Goku swallowed one of the Dragon Balls, preventing Syn from becoming Omega Shenron again. Omega fought both Goku and Vegeta and still managed to take them on. The two attempted to perform fusion again, but it failed and Goku reverted to his child state. The Evil Dragon resumed his attack, only to be confronted by Nuova Shenron, who had been revived by the positive energy in Goku. Nuova attempted to use a self-destruction attack, only for Omega to survive and become Omega Shenron (via retrieving the Four-Star Ball from within Nuova's body, killing him in the process) again. After Vegeta de transformed from Super Saiyan 4 and reverted back to his normal state, Omega attempted to use an attack to blow up the Earth, but Goku blocked it, apparently dying in the blast. Omega fought the rest of the Z Warriors and defeated them easily, only for Goku to appear and prepare his Universal Spirit Bomb.
The Dragon's Demise
|“||Wait, wait. Hold on!||„|
|~ Omega Shenron's last words|
While Goten, Gohan, and Trunks distracted Omega Shenron, Goku gathered energy from all over the universe and amassed it into a powerful Universal Spirit Bomb. The Evil Dragon tried to blast a Negative Karma Ball at Goku, but it had no effect and finally the Saiyan finished gathering energy. Omega Shenron attempted to plead with Goku, but it fell on deaf ears and the Evil Dragon met his end at the hands of the Universal Spirit Bomb. Then, the real Shenron appears without being summoned and grants Goku and the others the final wished to restore everything before the fighters from Hell and the Evil Dragons appeared, and then proceeded to vanish for good, along with the Dragon Balls and Goku himself.
Syn Shenron has the basic Flight, Superhuman attributes, and Ki Manipulation like most Dragon Ball Z characters. But Syn Shenron's go far beyond anything seen previously. Unlike his other siblings, Syn Shenron has no elemental powers and he is simply the strongest Evil Dragon. The only special power he has is his ability to swallow the Dragon Balls and gain the powers of the other Evil Dragons. Like most of the other Dragon Ball characters, Syn can use energy in the form of blasts and flight. Also like most other Dragon Ball characters, he has a few signature attacks, such as his Gigantic Blaze attack, which is where he generates an explosion of energy around his enemy, and the Negative Karma Ball, which is a large sphere of negative energy. After becoming Omega Shenron, he gains the powers of all the other Evil Dragons, such as Eis Shenron's Ice Ray and Oceanus Shenron's Whirlwind Spin. His power level also skyrockets after the absorption (approximately 10x Syn Shenron's) and allowing him to completely dominate Goku's Super Saiyan 4 form (which had absorbed energy from his allies and allowed him to dominate his previous state). Not even the combined efforts of Goku and Vegeta's Super Kamehameha and Final Flash could damage Omega Shenron (after he was weakened from losing the Four-Star Ball and being beaten by Gogeta) and could beat the empowered Saiyans like nothing. Omega Shenron, however, even with his gigantic power, was no match for Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta. The Fusion Saiyan was able to toy with and completely dominate the empowered Shadow Dragon. The Shadow Dragon would have certainly been destroyed by Gogeta if the Fusion hadn't expired before the final blow could be delivered. Ultimately, even Omega Shenron was no match for the Universal Spirit Bomb.
Omega Shenron is stated to have a power level of 1,900,000,000 in Scouter Battle Kamehameha. The GT Perfect Files states that the absorption of the Dragon Balls multiplied Syn Shenron's power 10x what it was to Omega Shenron. This could possibly mean that Syn Shenron's power level is 190,000,000 (10x weaker than Scouter Battle Kamehameha's giving of Omega Shenron's strength). If this is so, then his power level after losing the Four-Star Ball could be 1,710,000,000. Only 9x Syn Shenron's original power level.
- When Syn Shenron fights Nuova Shenron in the video game, Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3, he refers to him as Omega Shenron, but if he faces Super Syn, he will not refer to him by name. This may be a reference to the fact that Nuova never saw Syn until after he transformed into Omega Shenron.
