Zalama (ザラマ 'Zarama') is a Dragon God (龍神 'Ryuu-jin') and the creator of the Super Dragon Balls.
Zalama formed the Super Dragon Balls in the forty-first year of the Divine Calendar. He made them to be the size of planets, about 37,196 kilometers in size. A year later, he patented technology that made star marks on Super Dragon Balls look the same from every angle. He created the phrase to summon the Divine Dragon, "Come forth, Dragon of the Gods, and grant my wish pretty peas!" ("Dragon of the Gods" is changed to "Divine Dragon" and "Pretty Peas" is changed to "Peas and Carrots" in the Funimation dub). He also "programmed" the Super Dragon Balls to scatter throughout Universe 6 and Universe 7 after a wish is made.
The full extent of Zalama's power is unknown, but he was able to create the Super Dragon Balls and their divine dragon Super Shenron with no limitations to the wish that can be granted, though the dragon is only allowed to grant one wish per summoning.
- Zalama's name is likely derived from the word "salamander".
- The reason why he specifically chose Universes 6 & 7 as the
locations for the Super Dragon Balls to scatter across is currently unknown.
