He's Still Got It


“Work hard, Study well and eat and sleep plenty…that's the turtle hermit way” We first heard these quotes from Master Roshi back in the original Dragon Ball, and they became the guiding principles for the rest ofGoku and Krillin’s lives. When the time came for the epic Tournament of Power, we got to see Master Roshi make a daring and emotional stand against the enemy Ganos. The old mentor proved the value of his experience and mastery, giving us an emotional and nostalgic payoff we’ll never forget.

After defeating Frieza, who would have thought that Goku and Piccolo’s most challenging battle would be....learning to drive!? In the midst of training for the Androids' arrival, we got this absolute gem of a filler episode that remained in the hearts of fans forever for its hilarity. When beings of such unimaginable power struggle with something so common and mundane, maybe it shows us that the rest of us are doing something right.

He Died Not as he Lived


A great redemption story if there ever was one. Piccolo spent his life seeking vengeance on Goku for killing his father, Demon King Piccolo, until the two were forced to team up to battle the Saiyan Raditz. Upon witnessing Goku’s sacrifice and hearing of Vegeta’s arrival, Piccolo took Gohan to train him and in the process, he had bonded with him enough to give his life when Nappa’s deadly attack struck. This one selfless act was proof that Piccolo's days of evil were long behind him.

The battle against Hit reached its climax when Goku pulled out his biggest surprise, a mixture of his Super Saiyan Blue and his long unseen Kaio Ken transformations.

The surprise move blew us all away, and for many, this is where the greatness of Dragon Ball Super truly began.

A New Hero for a New Generation

When the young Gohan was staring death in the eye, he rose up to give us one of the most epic scenes in DBZ history. The villainous Cell had already defeated Krillin, Tien, and Yamcha. He demoralized Vegeta to the point of breaking his will to fight, and worse of all, Goku and Android 16 had fallen. But, with one hand remaining, Gohan fired his last ditch Kamehameha and with the support of Goku from Other World. With a helpful distraction from Vegeta, Gohan was able to end the nightmare of Cell forever. This scene will always live on as Gohan's crowning moment, the time when he became a true hero.

He Did it for You, for You, and Yes, Even for You

Another epic moment of redemption, the proud Vegeta begins his final atonement for the evil ways of his past and sacrifices himself to rid the world of Majin Buu. While the effort was ultimately futile, the emotion and weight of the scene was not. As Vegeta realizes he cares more for his family thananything else, he finally completes his long journey into the side of good where he would forever remain.
