Master Roshi shocked Dragon Ball Super fans as not only did he take on Jiren in a one-on-one fight, he managed to reach his own form of Ultra Instinct.
Dragon Ball Super's manga has made many changes to how the Tournament of Power has played out, and this is one of many that's really gotten a reaction from fans of the series.
In Chapter 39 of the manga, Master Roshi and Jiren exchange blows. In order to show Goku that raw power won't be enough to win (as Goku can't even lay a hand on Jiren in Super Saiyan Blue), Master Roshi not only lands a few blows on Jiren but then dodges some of Jiren's attacks based purely on his battle instinct alone.
While Roshi doesn't last long against Jiren in the end because of the major power difference, the fact he was able to roll off one of Jiren's attacks made all the difference.
It made such a difference that fans have been paying Roshi his due respect as he's made a major comeback through both the Dragon Ball Super anime and manga now.
Read on to see what fans are saying about Roshi's major stand and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Ultra Instinct Conspiracy
Actually, Master Roshi is in MUI state from the very beginning. We all missed it.— SUPER クロニクル (@DBSChronicles) August 17, 2018
He is bald and so he doesn't have spiky shiny silver hairs.. but his beard is white.
And this explains why he always wears sunglasses. Yep it's just to cover his SILVER eyes.#DragonBallSuper pic.twitter.com/0F2BC1zLjh
Im still baffled at the Idea of Master Roshi being able to fight some of the strongest warriors by himself. Here's Master Roshi taking on some of the warriors of Universe 11 in the latest #DragonBallSuper Manga.
