Parzan (パーザン) is a Tarzan-based character who appears in Dr. Slump. He bears a strong resemblance to Suppaman, who he shares an adversarial relationship with.
In Dr. Slump, Parzan goes to Penguin Village with his pet monkey Cheeta in an attempt to replace Suppaman as its hero. When Cheeta leaves Parzan, annoyed by the stupidity, Parzan replaces Cheeta by a big frog, but the frog leaves Parzan too. When he sees Arale Norimaki and Gatchan playing with a bear, Parzan decides to drop his King of the Jungle title and tries to become the King of the Middle School.
Later, Parzan makes a cameo in the chapter "Cute Delivery Boy from Hell". He is seen among the residents of Penguin Village running after Arale and Gatchan in "Penguin Village Dom-Dom-Dom!" He has the role of one of Cinderella's half-sisters in "Cinderella, the Musical".
Parzan is a contestant in the race organized in the "Penguin Gran Prix" chapters, using the big frog as his vehicle.
