Originally debuting in Dragon Ball Heroes, the Dark Dragon Balls were created by a version of Dende, aligned with the demonic Dark Empire. As with all dragon balls, gathering all seven together will summon the dragon, Dark Shenron, in order to grant a wish.
However, there's one key difference between these dragon balls and the others. Well, two actually. The first is that they're scattered across time and space. The second, is that they have the ability to merge with something with a wicked heart in order to give them a power up. In order to retrieve the ball, the villain in question needs to be defeated.
Now, for simplicity's sake, we can take out the whole 'time and space' aspect of the balls. When the balls are first created and spread out, seven villains on the site can be selected (a list can be made ahead of time), each to receive a ball. This ball is fused with the villain in question, granting them a Dark Evolution, a bonus x2 multiplier on top of any they already possess. In return, they're turned into a dark version of themselves. Of course, while they're in this state, the Dark Dragon Ball cannot be used to summon the dragon, since it's imbedded inside their very body. The ball can only be removed when the person in question is defeated.
If someone has a hold of a free Dark Dragon Ball, they can choose to merge the ball into themselves, granting them the dark evolution, but locking the ball from being used for wishes until they are defeat. Of course, anyone merging with a Dark Dragon Ball would turn into a dark version of themselves, regardless of their previous alignment. A person can only merge with one Dark Dragon Ball at a time.
Like Earth Shenron, I can picture Dark Shenron only granting one wish, but with the increased difficulty in gathering the seven balls, I'd also imagine Dark Shenron being capable of more than Earth Shenron can.
Again, this is just an idea, and if this does get agreed upon, I don't expect it to be brought in for a long while. I just thought it would be an interesting idea.
