Tenshinhan's Power Levels

These are mostly estimated power levels, based around the ones that Akira Toriyama gave us. Even though power level inflation seems to go insane after the Freeza saga, this is due to the story. You have to assume the human fighters become extremely strong too, because they're there fighting alongside the Saiya-jins and Piccolo. Tenshinhan's control over the nearly complete Cell suggests that they are indeed at least in the millions in terms of battle power. I've heard that in an interview with Akira Toriyama, he was asked what the power levels where after there weren't any scouters. He said that during the Cell saga Tenshinhan and Kuririn (who where the strongest humans) where actually very strong and that there PLs where in the milliions. I suppose it's just inflation of others power levels, in order to keep up with Gokou's insanely increasing power level. This was probably a mistake by Toriyama creating such massive increases in power level on the main character and the main enemies. Regardless, based off of Gokou's official power levels you must assume that the strong humans are at least in the millions during the Cell battle. I've compared Ten-san's with the obvious choices: Kuririn, for being Ten-san's contender for strongest human, and Gokou for being the main character and strongest in the story of Dragon Ball.

- If the number is in Yellow, then it is an official PL written by Akira Toriyama.
- If the number is in White, then it is my estimate.
