"Shenron Revived!!" (神龍復活!!, Shenron Fukkatsu!!; Viz "Shen Long Resurrected!"; Literally meaning "The Dragon God Revived!!") is the one hundred sixty-fifth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Mr. Popo brings out the model of Shenron to God, and proceeds to repair the damage. God admits that he had no intention of originally fixing Shenron, as humans perverted the original intention that the Dragon Balls exist to give humans hope and courage, not be misused for selfish intentions. However, people like Gokū have inspired him, and God resurrects Shenron.

God informs Gokū that the Dragon Balls have been restored, however, Gokū needs to train with him. In three years time, Piccolo Junior will arrive at the Tenkaichi Budōkai to kill Son Gokū. God tells Gokū that it has to be him, as he and Mr. Popo have their reasons for not fighting Piccolo's reincarnation. As Gokū makes a restroom run, Mr. Popo informs God that if Piccolo dies, he, God, will die as well, due to them being one person. God acknowledges this, but admits he must take responsibilty. Unable to commit suicide as God, it has to be Gokū who kills Piccolo.

On Earth, Shenron informs Gokū's friends that Gokū is training with God, and asked the deity to revive him. He also mentions Gokū as training at the Palace of God for the next Tenkaichi Budōkai,and goes ahead to grant their wish, reviving all those killed by Piccolo Daimaō. As Muten Rōshi explains that Gokū is training with God, this motivates the others, and they begin their training for the upcoming Tenkaichi Budōkai.
