Master Roshi, also known as the Turtle Hermit and God of Martial Arts, is a master of martial arts, who trained Gohan, Goku, Krillin, and Yamcha. He is also a hermit and a pervert.

Master Roshi, the younger brother of Fortuneteller Baba, is a martial artist trained by the great Master Mutaito a few hundred years before the beginning of Dragon Ball. He was the first one to climb the extremely tall Korin Tower and train under the legendary Korin. It took Master Roshi 3 years to catch Korin and obtain the Sacred Water, which was rumored to tremendously increase one's strength and speed.

Before King Piccolo's rampage on Earth, Master Roshi and Shen were rivals, but later on the two became friends. Together they aided their master Mutaito in his battle with King Piccolo. The three of them were no match for King Piccolo, but Mutaito used a special technique - the Evil Containment Wave - to seal him away, dying in the process. Roshi and Shen threw the electric rice cooker he was sealed in to the bottom of the ocean so that King Piccolo would never be released.

Master Roshi is over 300 years old at the start of the series and provides various stories to explain his longevity. Roshi enjoys eating home delivered pizza, which serves as a tongue-in-cheek joke because Roshi lives so far out into the ocean. He also enjoys reading, watching TV, using the internet (mainly for adult sites), playing video games and taking afternoon naps.

Finally... the legendary martial arts master who inspired Tung Fu Rue made it to a proper fighting game in the year 2020 (if you've been counting, that's 29 years after Tung Fu Rue's debut). Wowza! Also, shoutouts to Chung Paifu from Savage Reign and Fei Pusu from Tobal No .1. Roshi is a legend and has inspired many. I'm excited to see how see his moveset & animations in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

FUN FACT: In TEKKEN 5, one of Wang Jinrey's pre-fight animations is a direct homage to Master Roshi. The funny part is, Wang only does this intro when is opponent is a girl. Wang also has this special intro in TEKKEN 6.
