Background/History: Chao-zu is one of the more unusual characters in Dragon Ball Z. He is a tiny doll-like humanoid with a number of odd chi powers. We first see him during the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai, where he loses to Kulilin. Later, he dies trying to stop the Demon King Piccolo from regaining his youth via the 7 dragon balls. Later yet, he self-destructs in the battle with Nappa and Vegita and dies yet again. Returned to life, he appears sporadically throughout the rest of the series, but is no longer involved in any of the major battles.

Personality/Motivation: As such a minor character, Chao-zu doesn't get a large amount of "screen" time. He is Tenshinhan's constant companion, and very devoted to his taller friend. Chao-zu is also a bit slow at times and can be easily distracted. This can be quite a problem, as his Chonoryoko power requires his total concentration. Kulilin managed to get out of the Chonoryoko by asking Chao-zu mathematics questions in order to break the needed concentration.

Powers/Tactics: As with Tenshinhan, Chao-zu has a number of very unique chi powers. As a student of Tsurusen-ryu, he has a number of simple martial arts skills, as well as the ability to fire off the powerful Dondonpa blast. He can fire other, less powerful blasts as well, and once detonated all of his chi energy in a massive explosion that completely destroyed himself. Chao-zu also has the ability to move objects with his mind. His psychokinesis is rather weak, but very handy, since it it has no visible effect and can be used to manipulate objects inside of closed boxes. The Chonoryoko is a more powerful version of his telekinesis that he uses to manipulate the movements of others, usually freezing them in place. He can also cause sharp internal pains to anyone trapped by this power. Naturally, Chao-zu can fly, leap great distances and sense other's chi, just like almost everyone else in the series.

Appearance: Chao-zu is tiny, standing maybe 3 to 3 1/2 feet in height. His skin is white and there are two large red spots on his cheeks. Chao-zu also lacks a nose and is virtually bald. All in all, he looks very much like a small China doll. His usual mode of dress is identical to Tenshinhan; Mandarin-styled Chinese clothing.
