The Earth Dragon Balls were created by Kami, and later re-created by Dende. Seven Dragon Balls exist, and can be used to summon Shen Long when they are gathered together. Shen Long can grant a wish within its powers as long as it does not kill, create love, repeat a wish he previously granted, and a few other restrictions. Legitimate wishes include eternal youth, immortality, bringing back a scorched forest, or even recreating a destroyed planet. It is also possible to return a person to life, although they must meet certain criteria such as dying of unnatural causes (murder for example) or dying within a year before (if more than one person). Each individual can only be brought back once. Shen Long will grant the first wish uttered after he has been summoned by whomever is present.

When Dende became Earth's new Guardian, he modified the burnt out Dragon Balls created by Kami (which transformed into seven ordinary stones when Kami fused with Piccolo) giving Shen Long the power to grant two wishes (though in the Boo Saga of the English manga, it was labeled as three wishes). In addition to this, the second wish could be saved for a later time. This was shown in the Boo Saga when one wish was made to revive all those killed by Majin Vegeta and Son Goku then asked Shen Long to save the second wish for later. Therefore, only four or so months after Kid Boo's defeat, another wish was made to erase the Earthlings' memories of Boo. One obstacle that Dende put in place on the new set of balls, however, is that – like the Namek Dragon Balls – the summoner must utter a set of words. In Dragon Ball Z, these words are "Eternal Dragon, by your name, I summon you forth: Shen Long!" In Dragon Ball GT, right before the Shadow Dragon Saga, the words were changed to "Arise, Shen Long!"

It is debated whether Dragon Balls can revive artificial life or not. The revival of Android 17 during the Cell Games Saga does not apply because he started out as a Human and was made into an Android by Dr. Gero. Android 16, who was killed by Cell, was not seen again in the series even after the wish was made to revive all of Cell's victims. Furthermore, when Kid Boo annihilated the planet Earth, and everyone (except the evil ones) were wished back, Android 8, who is a purely mechanical Android like 16, was seen giving Goku energy for his Spirit Bomb.
