Dragon Ball is largely the story of Goku, but fans have made connections to all sorts of fan-favorite characters over the series' long tenure. One of the most popular is Master Roshi, and the latest episode of the English dub put him in the spotlight. But that spotlight came with several death flags. Although Master Roshi survived his intense string of bouts in the Tournament of Power, it was an emotional moment nonetheless.
The latest episode of the series on Toonami is a good example of just how Goku would react to seeing Master Roshi die in front of him. It goes to show that although Goku's surpassed Roshi's strength long ago, Roshi is still as important to him as he was when Goku was a child.
In Episode 105 of the series, Master Roshi takes center stage as he fights three different warriors from Universe 4. Though he defeats the first with relative ease, defeating the second warrior drained much of his ki when he had to use the Evil Containment Wave to defeat her. But the third fight is what got the most attention as Master Roshi had to put all of his effort into defeating Universe 4's Ganos.
As he charged up for his ultimate Kamehameha, Goku and Krillin shockingly looked on as he bid them farewell. He wished them the best, and hoped they continue to grow in the future, and defeated Ganos with his powerful blast. But he collapsed soon after. Krillin almost got himself erased by jumping back into the tournament, and Goku rushed to his side.
He refused to let Roshi die, and pumped Roshi's chest full of ki. He did it over and over, until Roshi eventually got back up. He was successfully revived thanks to Goku's efforts. Good thing to as fans, and Goku, were not ready to say goodbye to Master Roshi just yet. Especially as the Tournament of Power continues.
