"It's the only way, Tien. Don't worry. I'm not afraid. And if I can save you, then it's worth dying for." — "The Power of Nappa"
Chaozu or Chiaotzu in the Funimation dub, is a Dragon Ball character and his best friend is Tenshinhan. Although not physically strong, Chaozu is skilled with telekinetics and psychic powers. Chaozu posses power full telekinetic powers and was originally a villain who would swindle villagers, along with Tenshinhan. He later fights against Kuririn in the Tenkaichi Budokai and loses due to Kuririn's mathematics trickery. He is then seen telekinetically freezing Son Goku during his fight with Tenshinhan. When Tenshinhan told Chaozu to stop, Tsurusen'in threatened him if he did not before Muten Roshi blew the Crane Elder away with a Kamehameha wave. He then saw the evil of his master's ways and joined the Z Fighters.
Chaozu participates in finding the Dragon Balls to revive Kuririn, who was killed by one of the Demon King Piccolo's children, but he was killed by Piccolo's energy blast. Chaozu is later revived by the Dragons Balls. He then participates in the next Tenkaichi Budokai before he is brutally beaten by a cybernetic Tao Pai Pai.
Chaozu is one of the Z Warriors who battle against the Saiyans, Vegeta and Nappa. He perishes after unsuccessfully using a self-destruct attack on Nappa. The Dragon Balls already restored his life so Shenlong could not do it again, so the Z Warriors ended up using the Namekian Dragon Balls so that Porunga could do resurrect him.
