Nuova Shenron (四星龍, Sì Xīng Lóng; lit. "Four-Star Dragon") is one of the seven Shadow Dragons, and the fifth to be fought by Goku and Pan. Nuova is the dragon of the Four-Star Dragon Ball and represents the element of fire. He was born from King Piccolo wishing for the restoration of his youth during the events of the original Dragon Ball series. His name is likely a play on the English word "Nova",which means fire.
Like his brothers, Eis Shenron and Syn Shenron, Nuova is one of the strongest characters in the Dragon Ball Anime. His strength is above that of a Super Saiyan 3, and about equal to a Super Saiyan 4. Although he is not as strong as Syn he was able to fight evenly with Goku at Super Saiyan 4
