The name is derived from K'arin, the Japanese name for the Chinese quince. His tower, the "Korin Tower" (カリン塔 Karin-tō), is a play on a type of fried dough cake called "karinto" (花林糖, karintō), which fits the common theme of the characters being named after foods.
He is widely known to western audiences as Korin, a pun on corn, as opposed to his Japanese name, Karin.
Korin is a Senbyō (仙猫, immortal cat) and was at least 800 years old when he moved to Goat City. He is a deity who lives at the top of Korin Tower, located right underneath The Lookout. Korin is a legendary figure amongst the warrior-world, hailed as "The God of Martial Arts." This frequently leads to surprise and disbelief for those meeting him for the first time, as his appearance has yet to attain the fame of his reputation.
The young Master Roshi was the first one of many to climb the tall Korin Tower and train under the legendary Korin. It took him three years to catch Korin and obtain the Sacred Water, which was rumored to tremendously increase one's strength and speed.
Since Korin is a teacher, here is a list of techniques and skills that can be taught to you when you train with him.
