The bodyguard of Chaozu, Tenshinhan plays a minor role, but an important one in the three dragon ball series. His personality transitions from one of a brutal killer to that of an honorable warrior, one who cares deeply for those he strives to protect. He occasionally tries to repent for his former brutality but eventually rises above his horrid memories and looks toward the future. Tien's greatest attacks, and those that have helped out the Z-Fighters, are the Solar Flare and Tri-Beam. He was also the first to perform the multiple forms technique.
