    It doesn't matter. Hit ripped off pretty much everything about Tien. (The trained assassin with weird powers (timeskip/flying and solar flare) who gave Goku a close fight in a fair tournament (6v7 tournament and 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament), and who chose to rebel against his master rather than cheat (Hit pwning Frost and throwing the fight rather than winning for Champa, Tien drawing with Goku but refusing to kill for the Crane School). Only to be taken out by a stronger antagonist in the next arc after teaming up with the heroes (King Piccolo and Jiren)).

    So people might as well just talk about Hit instead.

    Yeah, I've watched this video about 4-6 times over and I fail to find a single untrue thing in it.

    “Prove” is kinda specific, but it certainly provides a case supported by evidence that, at the very least, they don’t give one single fuck about him.

    Japanese fans are very vocal about characters, if they had a problem with his treatment Toriyama would be flooded with angry mail and letters about it.

    Nobody is bothered by his treatment.

    When Nappa removed his arm, Tenshinhan stood back up and gave it his all.
    When Piccolo and Android 16 were decimated, Tenshinhan held the line.
    When Majin Buu nearly slew Dende, Tenshinhan blocked the shot.
    When Beerus came to Earth, Krillin did nothing, but Tenshinhan did his best.

    Tenshinhan will always be the Imperial Guardsman of DB.

    If Toei wants to shit on Tenshinhan, fine. But as far as I am concerned he already cemented his legacy. He did not harm Cell. No, he did more than harm Cell, he kept Cell from achieving a biological impetus. A tiny little Earth man kept the ultimate bio creature from achieving his goal, however momentary.

    It's sad since Tien is a good character with good development especially in DB and beginning of Z.

    Sadly he's been brushed aside or thrown away if you prefer that like a trash bag that i and most of the humans do before going to work.
