Shin Onigashima Characters

Shin Onigashima Characters

When Goku is searching for Chao in chapter 8, you can eventually switch to her, where she is locked in a prison with Kintaro from Shin Onigashima. At first Kintaro appears alone, but if you speak to him then Donbe also appears. Try the bars and the Tengu appears as well.

During this sequence, a music track entitled "Donbe" in the official soundtrack plays, which is the "Inside the Fortress" theme from Shin Onigashima (where Hikari first met the Tengu).

The characters appear throughout the rest of chapter 8 and Kintaro also appears at the beginning of chapter 9.
