Master Roshi (武天老師, Muten Rōshi) (also known as The "Turtle Hermit") is an ancient and wise martial arts master and the first character to wield the trademark Kamehameha. Though he seems frail, he is a mighty warrior. Master Roshi trained Gohan, Ox-King, Goku, Krillin, and Yamcha. His home, named Kame House, is a shack on a small isolated island, serves as a gathering place for "his friends". He is both the archetypal wise old man and a dirty old man, the latter being typical of shōnen manga. Sometimes, he gets cranky, which further provides comic relief. He is bald, with a thick fu man chu, and a thick beard. Master Roshi wears beach clothes or a martial arts suit and a turtle shell on his back. He usually wields a walking stick. His companions are usually Oolong, Turtle, and Launch.

BiographyEdit

Pre-Dragon Ball Adventures Life

Dragon Ball AdventuresEdit

Master Roshi, although perverted and introverted, he's narrator of the series, and sees to it that Pan will become a strong Saiyan warrior. It also appears that Launch is now his new wife, although no distinction of this is made in the anime.

Saiyan Tales SagaEdit

Master Roshi has the final Dragon Ball Pan needs to resurrect her friends and teachers that were killed by the poison in the school. Instead of giving it to her, he decides to test her abilities, and fights her. He continues to push her, and as she gets stronger with every blow he gives her, he uses more power. He goes 50% Max Power, and tries to get her to become Super Saiyan, to no avail. Finally, after making a perverted remark about Videl, Pan goes Super Saiyan. To try to combat her power, Master Roshi goes Max Power. Pan is now too powerful, and defeats Master Roshi effortlessly. Proudly defeated, Master Roshi hands the 6-Star Dragon Ball over to Pan.
