The Golden Tigers were an important and feared gang operating out of the Canal Street area of Chinatown, and led by Chaka Khan, whose members were skilled in martial arts and the use of melee weapons. They were involved in a variety of criminal activities including protection rackets.[1]

Upon the arrest of the boss of the Maggia, Ruffio Costa, they attempted to take advantage of the power vacuum to become the dominant crime power in New York City.[1] Iron Fist, was able to put a stop to those plans, defeating Chaka Khan which was followed by the arrest of many of the Golden Tigers.[2]

The Golden Tigers were later rebuilt by Chaka, who used them in a crime wave of extortion and raids in Chinatown and the neighboring communities. After being defeated by the Iron Fist, the community provided the NYPD with testimony regarding the activities of the Golden Tigers.[3]
