The Tech-Techians (テクテク星人) are extraterrestrials from Planet Tech-Tech. They first appeared in Nekomajin, and later in Toccio the Angel, the 2007 Dr. Slump special "Dr. Mashirito and Abale-chan", Oishii Shima no Ū-sama, and Jaco the Galactic Patrolman.
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman
A Tech-Techian appears as one of the members of the Galactic Patrol in a flashback in the third chapter of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman. This alien is shown standing near the Galactic King.
Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!
Tarble's wife Gure, from Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!, looks like a Tech-Techian. Contrary to the Tech-Techians in most media, Gure is not hostile. She and her husband left their home planet because of Abo and Kado terrorizing it.
In the Nekomajin chapter "Neko Majin is Here 2", two aliens kidnap a rich girl. When Neko Majin begins to help them, Pete Kobayashi arrives and fights with Neko Majin. After witnessing Pete Kobayashi's defeat and afraid of Neko Majin's power, the two exraterrestrials free the girl and leave Earth.
Toccio the Angel
Tech-Techians make a brief appearance in Toccio the Angel, waiting for a taxi.
Dr. Mashirito and Abale-chan
Oishii Shima no Ū-sama
In this manga, Tech-Techians try to exploit the natural resources of Guruguru island, an island where residents live harmonious lives in a rich natural environment. However, two men from the city decide to protect the pristine island from the evil hands of the Tech-Techians.
- Though the aliens from Dr. Mashirito and Abale-chan look like those in Nekomajin, they are not the same; Akira Toriyama explained in an interview that the aliens he draw generally have this sort of design and, at the time, he enjoyed drawing Nekomajin, so when aliens appeared in Abale-chan, he did not even intend to come up with a new design.
