Growing Up - Tenshinhan

The section of Tenshinhan Growing Up.

Being the strongest man in the universe, this three eyed fighter trains non-stop to help Goku out whenever he needs it.

Training under Tsurusennin, Tenshinhan used to be one of the strongest fighters in the world, next to Goku. However, after being beaten by Tenshinhan in the Budoukai, Goku trained harder, surpassing him. Tenshinhan then claimed the strongest human in the world. He trained extensivly, making himself improve twice as much as he did the day before. He tried to help fight Cell, but was soon beaten up. Later, he tried to help again, by blocking a shot of Buu. After that, he wasn't seen until the last of the series.

Tsurusennin Diciple Period
Book Ten ~ Book Twelve

Tsurusennin, Tenshinhan's master, put him in the 22nd Tenkaichi Budoukai, just to humiliate Kamesennin. He did it, but wasn't there to see it, since he got blasted away. Tsurusennin's brother, Tao Pai Pai, was killed by Goku, which Tenshinhan found out, and tried to kill him himself, but soon realized that Tsurusennin was just training them for his own evil ways. Tenshinhan gave him up and decided to train under Kamesennin.

Warrior Training Period
Book Twelve ~ Book Forty Two

Tenshinhan tried to help out Goku, by attacking Piccolo Daimou. He even tried to do the deadly, Mafuuba, which he never got to do. He decided to leave and train alone. He was called forth again, by trying to kill they Saiya-jins, then Cell, and even Buu. Tenshinhan was full of surprises, but always was brushed aside, since he was at all strong enough to take on his opponeants.

Tenshinhan attacked Cell. (Book Thirty One . Chapter Three Hundred and Seventy Three)

Tenshinhan attacked Buu's blast to save Gohan. (Book Torty One . Chapter Five Hundred and One)
