Chi-Chi's mother (チチの母 Chi Chi no Haha) is the wife of the Ox-King. Although she is mentioned a few times, her only appearance is in in a painting seen in the anime episode "Dress in Flames" which shows her sitting in her husband's hand and holding Chi-Chi as a newborn.
In the painting, the face of Chi-Chi's mother is not shown since it is blocked by decorations, but it can be seen that she has the same hairstyle as her daughter Chi-Chi and dresses the same way Chi-Chi does when she becomes older. She is shown wearing a turquoise cheongsam with purple pants underneath, and pink socks and shoes. In the painting showing her, she is similar in size to the Ox-King's hand.
She lived with the Ox-King and Chi-Chi before Pleasant Mountain caught fire. She died of an illness the same year her daughter was born. Her Wedding Dress becomes the only thing left to remember her by. In Age 756, Ox-King allows Chi-Chi to wear her mother's wedding dress for her own wedding to Goku. However Fire Mountain endangers Ox-King's Castle forcing him to protect the dress from the flames, while Chi-Chi and Goku work to put out the fire which leads them the source of the fire, the Furnace of Eight Divisions which Goku repairs putting out the fire. Chi-Chi later wears her mother's wedding dress (which survived thanks to Ox-King's efforts) during her wedding to Goku.
- Wedding Dress - A formal dress worn on one's wedding day. A memento kept by her husband after her death that was eventually passed down to her daughter.
