"Times like these call for action, not talk! We're dealing with the most powerful Saiyan ever in existence. And a Saiyan cannot be talked into submission."
Eis Shenron (三星龍 Sān Xīng Lóng, literally Three-Star Dragon) or Ice Shenron is one of the seven Shadow Dragons and the sixth to be fought by Goku. Eis is the dragon of the Three-Star Dragon Ball, and represents the element of ice who was (as revealed in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) brought forth by the wish that erased the memories of Majin Buu from everyone on Earth excluding the Z Fighters and their friends. He was also the first dragon to be defeated by a finishing attack other than the Kamehameha Wave, unlike the rest, except for Nuova Shenron and Syn/Omega. "Eis" is the german word for "ice" and his name is most likely referring to his powers.
In his first appearance, Eis Shenron brutally beats up an unconscious Pan, while Goku is fighting with Nuova Shenron. Eis then transforms into his ultimate fighting form (like Nuova did earlier) in order to fight Goku and reveals himself during the battle between Goku and his brother, Nuova Shenron. Ignoring Goku’s confusion at Shadow Dragons having brothers and Nuova's demands that this was his fight, Eis reveals he stole the Dragon Balls from Pan. Goku looks down and sees a badly injured Pan, and immediately rushes to her side. Pan says she is sorry for losing the Dragon Balls before slipping back into unconsciousness. Enraged at what has been done to Pan, Eis now has Goku's full attention.
Eis commenced his attack on Goku using far more underhanded tactics than Nuova would ever use. However, Goku was still able to match him in melee attacks. Deciding to show his superiority, Eis tried to beat Goku without actually fighting him and froze each of his limbs one by one before encasing the Saiyan entirely in ice.
When confronted by his brother for using such cowardly techniques, Eis proceeded to pummel Nuova and demanded his brother incinerate the defenseless Goku. Instead Nuova spited his brother by using the heat from his attack to thaw out Goku, allowing the angry Saiyan to begin his own beat down on Eis' cowardly hide. A panicked Eis attempted to freeze Goku in place again, but Goku – wise to the move now – was easily able to dodge. Stating he would beat Eis within ten seconds – something Eis scoffed at. Then Eis Shenron froze the entire city and Goku said that he would beat him in five seconds. Goku then launched a vicious assault on the Shadow Dragon as Eis counted down from ten. However, after launching him into a building, Goku saw that Eis held the unconscious body of Pan; taunting the Saiyan, Eis hurled the girl down into the city and struck Goku down as he caught her. However, Eis' attack was interrupted as Goku grabbed his leg and furiously hurled him into another building. As Goku began to charge up a Kamehameha attack, Eis once again showed how low he could go by using his own brother as a shield, causing Goku to falter and miss.
Dismissing the outrage of his brother, Eis used an amplified version of his earlier attack to instantly freeze the entire city block Goku was standing in. Initiating his final attack, Eis called on energy from the very heart of his corrupted Dragon ball and fired directly at Goku. The attack failed, however, as Goku broke out of the ice and rushed straight through Eis' final technique – to Eis' horror – and threatened him at pointblank range. A terrified Eis was subjected to a rant from Goku about basic morality.
Eis begged Nuova to help him somehow and, despite thinking that Eis brought punishment upon himself, Nuova asked that Goku let Eis go provided he gave up his corrupted Dragon ball. Eis quickly agreed (apologizing all the while) and offered up his Dragon ball. Eis was not done yet. Having embedded his fingers within the ice on the ground, Eis turned his hand into a deadly blade that gashed Goku straight across the eyes, blinding him. Eis lunged at the disorientated Goku, only to receive a blow that went straight through his chest, causing him to collapse. After explaining that his other senses were easily as sharp as his sight, Goku disintegrated Eis Shenron with his mighty Dragon Fist technique.
Powers and abilities
- Dragon Ball Blast: This seems to be some sort of finishing blast that Eis Shenron shoots by turning his hand into an modern blasting cannon with the Dragon Ball emiting the Ki, in the original he says "Fire" as he shoots the blast but in the English dub he merely shouts "Hold this for me". He tried this move on SSJ4 Goku when he was encased in his Ice Ray but Goku broke out of the Ice and countered the blast.
- Ice Ray: Eis Shenron shoots a thin ray from his eyes that freezes anything it hits.
- Super Ice Ray: A more powerful version of Ice Ray, fired more like an energy blast from his hands.
- Blinding: Eis Shenron swiped some ice onto Goku's eyes, temporarily blinding him.
- Ice Blades: Eis Shenron creates blades of ice, in his final attempt to kill Goku.
- Ice Blasts: An Attack that freezes someone in Ice but is apparently a weaker version of the Ice Ray
- Flight: The ability to fly using his wings.
Video Game Appearances
Eis Shenron is featured as a playable character in Dragon Battlers, an arcade game released only in Japan.
Eis Shenron also "appears" as an alternate costume for Nuova Shenron in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
- While it is never mentioned outright in the series, Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files confirms that Eis Shenron was brought forth by the wish to erase the memories of Majin Buu from everyone excluding the Z Fighters and their friends.
- It is never explained (not even in Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files) how Eis and Nuova Shenron could be brothers, as the wishes that created them were in no way related, or even took place in the same anime as each other, much less the same saga.
- Eis's similar appearance to Nuova Shenron (or vice-versa) is never explained, it is possible that since fire (Nuova) and ice (Eis) are opposite elements, that is the relationship between them and is also possible for their highly similar appearance.
