Master Roshi is a lovable mentor figure in the Dragon Ball series. He is a 300 year old Martial Arts master who also is referred to as the Turtle Hermit. He is a true master who loves and cares for his students. He has trained Krillin, Goku, Gohan just to name a few of his students. He can be a bit of a creep by hitting on women every chance he gets. He lives far out into the ocean and loves watching TV, reading and, true to his nature, has internet access that he uses to mostly watch adult content.

The Master Roshi Look

He sports a Fu Manchu beard and mustache which is very thick and white. But his trademark is the sunglasses. He never leaves his trademark sunglasses except when he entered the World Martial Arts Tournament as Jackie Chun so that he could give his students a hard time in winning the tournament. He once wore old sunglasses but later gave them up for more futuristic ones. When training and fighting he wears his yellow martial arts suit with interlocking buttons with white lining on the collar and sleeve cuffs with dark blue pants and black shoes. At times he will adorn a with his turtle shell on his back.

When not in his martial arts attire, he is usually seen wearing his pink shirt with white shorts and flip-flops. And he also has a walking stick with him.
