Warning! Spoilers for Dragon Ball Super’s 105th episode lie below!
Dragon Ball fans may be used to seeing their favorite characters die, but that doesn’t mean they are used to the heartbreak. Over the years, heroes like Goku have sacrificed themselves, but no one expected Master Roshi to kick it in the latest episode of Dragon Ball Super. And if social media has anything to say, it’s that fans are grateful the Turtle Hermit was revived.
If you haven’t finished the 105th episode of Dragon Ball Super, then you should know it ends on a somber note. After duking it out with Ganos of Universe 4, Roshi finally knocks the fighter out of the Tournament of Power with one mighty Kamehameha; However, the win comes at a cost. Roshi collapses soon after the match ends, and he’s got two feet in the afterlife by the time Goku reaches him. The Saiyan is able to use his god ki to resurrect Roshi, but the character’s momentary passing had fans all sorts of shook up.
As you can see below, fans were not prepared to bid farewell to Roshi after so long. The fighter had just won one of his most grueling matches to date, and Roshi’s victory barely overshadowed the inspirational speech he gave before plowing down Ganos. The touching battle plus Roshi’s sudden passing had fans reeling, and it was only thanks to Goku that the man survived.

Master Roshi may be a pervert, but the old man is the closest thing Goku has to a father given Bardock and Gohan's deaths. He can't just scare fans like that!

Who cares about a PPV match when Master Roshi's life is on the line?!
This boyfriend clearly has his relationship goals set up... They just aren't between him and his girlfriend.
