"Shen" (シェン) is the one hundred seventy-fifth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The battle continues, and Shen dominates Yamcha, continuing to lecture him as he owns the battle. Yamcha notices that Shen is treating him much like a child, but Shen commends Yamcha's strength regardless. He admits he's not fully human, and the body he is using isn't even his, merely one he's possessed.

Yamcha, however, is not interested in Shen's personal story, and intends to début his last resort Thanking the martial arts master for his advice, Yamcha gathers ki in his hand and produces a sphere: the Sōkidan. Yamcha manipulates the sphere, cleverly landing a hit on Shen; however Shen retaliates and knocks him out of the ring, winning him the match.

Gokū finally clicks the name together, realizing that Shen is actually God possessing a human body. Asking of Shen wanted to reveal his identity, the man denied it, saying he'd keep it a secret for now.
