The “Rumor Guide” has been a consistent favorite of staff and visitors alike here at Kanzenshuu — the entries are a blast to put together, and they each act as an authoritative, one-stop-shop with verified original research and (generally!) definitive answers.
As part of the guide’s latest update, two new entries have been added… including one that was the winner of a recent Patreon poll!
RUMOR: Tenshinhan is a Descendant of the Alien Three-Eyed People
The Earth of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon World is filled with humans, anthropomorphic animals, and even the occasional dinosaur. Some of them can shapeshift. Some of them have colored hair.

It turns out that ancillary printed information suggests that Tenshinhan may, in fact, have some distant alien ancestry!
