Tien Shinhan – The disciplined and devoted martial artist enters the fray with Chiaotzu by his side!
Tien Shinhan is one of the most powerful warriors of the 7th universe, he is the best friend to Chiaotzu. Throughout the lives of Goku, Tien Shinhan has grown up and is much stronger.
Initially, Tien was a self-righteous self when he was downplaying Yamcha, Krillin, and Goku. Tien has a very cruel style of fighting, in the battle with Yamcha, Tien breaks his leg although Yamcha lost the ability to fight at the same time. His wish was to become an assassin like Tao Pai Pai.
However, he is not entirely a bad person, always showing his affection for fellow student Chiaotzu, who is annoyed when Master Shen hits him just because he loses before Krillin. Before fighting the Saiyans, he asked Chiaotzu to stay at home for worrying about him, but Chiaotzu disagreed because he wanted him to know that he was strong.
Despite the brutal fighting style, Tien Shinhan has the self-respect of a boxer. During the battle with Goku, when Tien learns that Luo Hao has sent Chiaotzu to use magic on Goku, he asks Chiaotzu to stop and wants to win him over his own strength.
After the battle with Goku, Tien Shinhan learned a lot from the boy and became a good man when he apologized to Yamcha for his injuries. In the battle with the Saiyans, witnessed the departure of Chiaotzu, Tien Shinhan was very distressed, he used all his power to launch the last fire Gong and sacrifice bravely.
When the Cell monster absorbed Android 17 and evolved into Semi-Perfect Cell, he was aiming for the ultimate goal of 18. Standing in front of that situation, Tien bravely stood up and used the Air Force firepower to prevent Cell though can pay the price of his life.
Tien Shinhan is a person who has never given up, he always tries to train to keep up with Goku. Although later the distance between the two is too big but Tien is not discouraged, he still practice and always appear when the Goku team needs him most.
