Tien's full name, a pupil of Master Shen, the crane hermit. He starts off as a bad guy but begins to become good after Master Roshi's lecture, during his fight with Jackie Chun (Roshi in disguise). He is chiaotzu's best friend. He was taught how to fight by Mercenary Tao. He refers to Master Roshi as Master, after defeating Tao, and abandoning his loyalty to Master Shen. Chiaotzu follows suit and also becomes good.
Tien Shinhan is arguably the strongest full blooded human on Earth in Dragon Ball Z. While it has been shown that he is stronger than Yamcha, it has never been further explained who is the strongest out of Tien and Krillin after Tien receives King Kai's training and Krillin receives the Namek Elder's unlock potential boost.

In the English Dub, Tien is the only character, aside from Goku (Son), and Bulma's (Brief) family, to have an official last name stated.
