• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Tenko and the Guardians of the Magic was an ephemeral 1995 animated show by Saban. The story is about a young teenage girl who was discovered by an old magician while she was performing at a circus. He told her she could do more magic than just magic tricks if she got the proper training-- and she complied. She goes to the school to train with some other students, and soon becomes best in the class. Becoming the Tenko, she must guard all of the powerful crystals in the Tenko box from falling into the wrong hands. The story revolves around her protecting the crystals from all sorts of different evil forces.

At the end of each episode, her live action counterpart Princess Tenko (a real life magician who inspired this show's creation) would either perform an amazing magic act while wearing flashy costumes, or teach a simple magic trick. The show was canceled after only one season due to poor ratings.
