Master Roshi (武天老師, Muten Rōshi), also known as the Turtle Hermit (亀仙人, Kamesen'nin), is an ancient and wise Martial Arts master and the first character to wield the trademark Kamehameha. Though he seems frail, he is actually a mighty warrior. His home, named Kame House, is a shack on a small isolated island, and serves as a gathering place for "his friends". He is both the archetypical wise old man and a perverted old man, the latter being typical of shōnen manga. Sometimes, he gets cranky, which further provides comic relief. He is bald, with a thick fu manchu, and a thick beard. Master Roshi wears beach clothes or a martial arts suit and a Turtle Shell on his back. He also usually wields a walking stick.
Despite his skirt-chasing antics, Master Roshi is still a very wise and kind-hearted person who loves those around him like his own grandchildren. He openly enjoys life and its simple pleasures, but is willing to die for an honorable cause if necessary.
If you travel to his home of Kame House, bringing him a gift (a dirty magazine will do) Roshi will train you in Martial Arts, perhaps to the point that you gain Ki Abilities.
