Tao Pai Pai is Tsuru-Sen'nin's younger brother and a highly skilled assassin-for-hire. He is hired by the Red Ribbon Army in order to retrieve the Dragon Balls that Goku holds, and to kill him. He succeeds beating Goku and taking all, but one of his Dragon Balls, which saves Goku life from Tao's final strike. Tao Pai Pai returns three days later to retrieve the Dragon Ball. Goku, however, received special training from Karin during the three days, and proves to be far too strong for Tao. Tao tries to kill Goku with a grenade, but Goku deflects it straight back at him, greatly wounding him. Tao Pai Pai is rebuilt as a cyborg by his older brother, and competes in the 23rd Tenkaichi Bud?kai, brutally defeating Chaozu. He fights Tenshinhan next, and cuts his chest with a knife, leaving the warrior with a scar. Tenshinhan disarms and defeats him shortly after. Tao Pai Pai re-appears later in the anime during the Cell Games Saga. He also Resembles Lau Chan from Virtua Fighter.
