Warning! Massive spoilers for Dragon Ball Super's 105th episode lie below!
If you have kept up with the Tournament of Power, then you will know the competition is a tough one. A couple of universes have already been eliminated from the high-stakes event, but Dragon Ball Super just proved how dangerous the affair really is with its latest episode. After all, the anime did kill off Master Roshi - well, momentarily.
In the 105th episode of Dragon Ball Super, fans watched in horror as Master Roshi died following a hard battle with Ganos of Universe 4. After a back-and-forth skirmish, Roshi managed to knock Ganos from the Tournament of Power with an intense Kamehameha, but the move came at great cost. Roshi found himself drained of energy after the battle, and the older fighter collapsed once his team began to celebrate his victory.
Roshi laid on the tournament's arena without a pulse, leaving Krillin in a state of panic. The student moved to aid his mentor but was unable to since he'd been eliminated from the contest. Desperate, Krillin called out to Goku who then rushed to the older man. The Saiyan was dismayed at Roshi's passing, so he attempted to restart the man's heart with a series of ki blasts.
When Goku's ki failed to restart the man's heart, the Saiyan went to new levels to bring back his comrade. Goku used his Super Saiyan Blue form to channel his god ki into Roshi, leaving the pair enveloped in a blue-white light. When the aura faded, Goku reverted back into his base form as a befuddled Roshi came to consciousness. The old man asked where all the cute angels went, signaling his heavenly visit tp the afterlife, and Goku let out a sigh of relief.
Dragon Ball Super was lenient with Roshi's death this time, and fans shouldn't be too surprised. After all, the franchise is no stranger to axing the fighter. Roshi was killed in Dragon Ball after the man performed the Evil Containment Wave against King Piccolo. Roshi was also 'killed' when Super Buu turned him into a chocolate treat during Dragon Ball Z. The beloved character has been brought back to life after each death, but Dragon Ball Super didn't ease up on the angst with its latest blow. If you found yourself tearing up at the emotional scene, you should know you weren't not the only one.0comments
