It's fairly clear that Tien has powers of regeneration. In his fight with Goku (the first one), he grows two arms, which we can clearly see. In his fight with Nappa, he says, "You just wait until this arm grows back!", and of course he wouldn't say that if it weren't to grow back for a year or so, because he had no intentions of fighting him himself. He's even listed as using it on his page. Lastly, see this page for more details. Destructivedisk 17:27, November 21, 2010 (UTC)
- Although he might have been able to regenerate, there is no proof of him being able to use this ability. The technique he used in DB was the Four Witches Technique, not the regeneration technique. He is never seen using regeneration in the series and has never said he can. The sentence "You just wait until this arm grows back!" was a either mistranslation or a joke from a dub that is of very poor quality (they also said that Goku's father was a scientist).

I still think it deserves some mention. We reached a consensus on the Tien page, where about four people all said that Tien could regenerate. We should at least say that he mentions being able to regenerate, although it is unknown if he truly can. Destructivedisk 18:01, November 21, 2010 (UTC)
I get the feel that Namerkian Regeneration is a learned ability, rather that a natural.Guru said that Nail was the greatest Namek warrion (outside of Piccolo, that is), and he's the only one who was seen using it. And another arugement for a "learned" ability comes from Dragonball. Goku put a hole in King P:iccolo's chest (and a Namek's regeneration is in his head), so if King Piccolo had that ability, he Should have been able to regenerate it. Although it might also be the fact that King Piccolo was extremely exausted and he didn't have the energy to regenerate such a massive wound...

I and most people I know tend to believe that when buu was beaten to the point where he stuggled regenerating was do to him absorbing so many people. As it is made clear kid buu is if not a demon, has demon-like qualities. And is thus immortal and has infinite stamina. But it would make sense that when absorbing people he becomes more mortal. As buuhan, he had SIX people absorbed. Thus would gain some mortal limits to stamina, regeneration ETC. wowfunny251,RARRRR!! 05:07, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
