Tenshi is a Cherub type angel and Ackman's main nemesis in Akira Toriyama's Go! Go! Ackman manga.


Tenshi takes his duty as an angel and job of protecting Earth from demons very seriously to the point of obsession, making him incredibly reckless and ironically a danger to the Earthlings he is supposed to protect, as his various attempts to kill his nemesis Ackman often result in collateral damage and the deaths of innocent bystanders including innocent children causing him to be arrested by the Earth Police.

However his arrest only makes him more determined to kill Ackman by hiring assassins and after being released from prison, trains his body to become muscular only to fail to kill Ackman once again.

In Resurrection ‘F’ manga, Tenshi works as one of the Angels of Earth's Hell assigned to watch over the former Galactic Emperor of Universe 7, an assignment more suitable for someone like Tenshi who is shown aiming his bow & arrow at the evil tyrant, showing he takes his job of watching over the villain seriously which is wise given the tyrant's power and personality (as Frieza wouldn't hesitate to attempt to escape his confines if given the opportunity given how much he hates his "punishment" in Earth's Hell).

However in Victory Mission, it is implied he retains his rivalry with Ackman as it is presumably the reason behind Tenshi participating in the same Dragon Ball Heroes tournament as Ackman, though fortunately the tournament participants uses cards and the Dragon Ball Heroes machines which keeps Tenshi from causing collateral damage like he did in Go! Go! Ackman.

Tenshi in the Ackman OVA

As a defender of the peace on Earth, Tenshi is an opponent of demons. Having thought that Ackman was dead, Tenshi is shocked to find him out and tries to kill him to prevent him from committing his crimes. He fails miserably, killing innocent people in the process: he tries to hit Ackman with a missile, but misses and hits a school bus full of children instead, making the fortune and happiness of Ackman. Tenshi is soon arrested by the police, thanks to Ackman. After being released from jail, Tenshi hires various agents who cost him always more and more expensive to kill Ackman, all in vain: Michel Yamada, Master Yakimo Hedel, and Miss Josephine Matsumoto. Tenshi then trains in order to beat his enemy himself, he becomes very muscular, but his attempt to defeat Ackman fails once again.
