Does Chi-Chi know how to manipulate ki?

Post by Mr. Piccolo » Fri Dec 28, 2012 4:27 pm

Does Chi-Chi know how to manipulate ki? She is certainly a very good martial artist, but is there anything from the manga or anime showing that she knew how to manipulate ki? Any fan theories on this matter?

I knew Rocketman was going to post that...

Not sure about her being able to manipulate Chi, tho. We know she's quite powerful by the 23rd Budokai, but I don't recall seeing any instance where she's shown any Chi-manipulation.

I think Chi Chi only knows how to fight with the basics that Gyu-mao taught her. All that seemed to be mentioned of her was how skillful she was in the Turtle Hermit style. I do think Chi Chi is one of the most underrated characters in the series. I think for example Videl can manipulate ki on a greater level than her, as well as Majin Spopovich and Co. , but I would expect Chi Chi to handle the lot of Mr. Satan , Videl , Majin Spopovich / Yamu all quite easily, perhaps a finger flick or two would do it.

The only thing I guess I could think of is her beam that she blows up the dinosaur with after cutting off it's head, but that's debatable as to whether its ki manipulation or not I suppose. The Daizenshuu says its some sort of beam weapon built into the helmet or whatever though.

Yea that just looks like a weapon to me. Overwhelming strength doesn't seem to be a wall that ki manipulation can scale.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

For a serious answer, no. She could only use the basic foundations of the Kame-sen style of martial arts that Gyuumaou had passed down to her.

For a non-serious answer, she was the first person to master the Kaiouken before Gokuu (the technique was actually named after her, not Kaiou, since she is the real "Lord of the Worlds" and the blue catfish-man is just an imposter), and she frequently spars with Blooma, who reached Super Saiyan after being enraged from Vegeta's dick went too far up her ass and activated the hidden Saiyan gene she inherited from King Vegeta.
