Background/History: Kamesennin Mutenroushi (The first name translates to "turtle master."), is a 300+ year-old master of the martial arts. He originally trained under Master Mutaito, who died many years ago confining the Evil Demon King Piccolo into a rice cooker. His fellow student under Mutaito was Tsurusennin (now master of the Crane school), and the two have been rivals ever since.

In the 300 years between between training under Master Mutaito and taking Son Goku as a student, Kamesennin spent 50 years perfecting the kamehameha attack as well as becoming champion of the Tenkaichi Budoikai. We first see Kamesennin as an old man that Bulma and Goku run into during their travels (they help a sea turtle return to Kamesennin's island). He then appears to help Bulma and Goku recover a dragonball from Frypan Mountain (where he demonstrates the power of the kamehameha) and Goku winds up staying with Kamesennin as his student. Kulilin shows up as well and the two spend 8 months training for the Tenkaichi Budoikai.

For the 21st Tenkaichi Budoikai, Kamesennin adopts the disguise of "Jackie Chun," a play on Jackie Chan. He wins the 21st, but forfeits to Tenshinhan in the 22nd and doesn't even bother to fight in the 23rd (or any others after that). Kamesennin also dies between the 22nd and the 23rd. His attempt to use the Mafuu-ba in order to trap the Evil Demon King Piccolo fails and the chi technique kills him.

Following the 22nd Tenkaichi Budoikai, Kamesennin's involvement as a major character drops off. His house, located on a small island, is often used as a base by the Z-fighters (as well as a refuge), but his martial skill is rapidly outstripped by everyone else around him.

Personality/Motivation: First and foremost, Kamesennin is the proverbial "dirty old man." He reads adult magazines, watches exercise shows to see girls in skimpy outfits and tries to cop a feel whenever he can. He also gets belted for this with amazing regularity (see his 1d6 of Unluck). This aspect of his character gets down played as the series goes on, but never vanishes entirely. He is well known as a master of martial arts and is recognized by many fighters as such. He is a rival of Tsurusennin and the two do not like each other at all.

Powers/Tactics: As can be expected from a master of the martial arts, Kamesennin knows a wide number of martial maneuvers. He can also sense another's chi, move faster than the eye can follow, and leave after images of himself behind. Interestingly enough, he cannot fly (unlike virtually every other major martial artist in the series). He is capable of deflecting other's chi blasts and catching bullets. Kamesennin is also able of tapping into his chi, massively increasing his muscle mass and endurance. This increase only lasts a few short moments, and Kamesennin will revert to normal fairly quickly. His other major chi powers are as follows (note that most of these were used just once):

Appearance: Kamesennin is of average height, standing about 5'7" or so. He is thin, with spindly limbs, bald, and a thick white mustache and beard. He usually dresses in Hawaiian shirts, shorts, and sandals and wears a sea turtle shell on his back. As Jackie Chun he wears a black tunic and trousers—the standard uniform of kung fu artists.
