Tien Shinhan is a main protagonist in Super Smash Bros. Crossover. In Season 4, Tien is captured by the villains, but is freed by Gohan and Krillin. In Season 18, Tien is infected by the zombie plague. Tien tracks down the Heroes of Legend, Frieza, Cell, and Orochimaru to the bedroom, but is unable to infect them and loses his arm in the process (the same arm Nappa severed). Tien's arm is reattached by Togepi, and he has a change of heart and decides to help his friends by protecting the Mind Chamber. Tien watched in fear as the others were being slaughtered slowly by Yami Bakura. After the battle, Tien is angered that Rogue has to die to prevent Yami Bakura from returning. In Season 19, Tien watches Naruto and Sasuke's final battle, and is cured by Shenron. In Season 20, Tien opts not to move to Smash City, but visits it every now and then. Tien and Yamcha are seen flying towards the Duel Dome when they sense Piccolo's energy dropping, and go to his location, only to find him inpaled in the chest by Nagato.
Tien's appearance is based off his Android Saga appearance.
Tien cares about his friends deeply, as he was angered when Rogue had to be killed to stop Yami Bakura. Tien especially cares about Chiaotzu.
