    I was hoping they might retcon to make Super Cyan to just be Vegeta's version of SSG.

    Though, I'm more used to SSGSS now, so I don't mind it now.

    Yeah, and we don't have any indication that Monster Carrot didn't land on a random planet after Roshi blew up the moon and trained to become stronger than SSJ3 Goku, but we both agree that if he suddenly showed up and was that strong, it'd be stupid.

    Basic storytelling demands that things be set up or at least foreshadowed before coming to pass; at least things that could possibly be contested by the audience for some reason.

    It is, though. When it's established that Roshi no longer has any desire to train, having him suddenly show up a decade or so later stronger without ever having even hinted that he was back at it is malarkey. I can cite reasons why he wouldn't have started training again...where are these reasons that he would have?

    Nothing would have been different. It would have been the same asinine situation as this one.

    We also knew that he'd stopped training before the 23rd Tenaichi Budokai, and that there was zero indication that he'd resumed.

    I mean, was there even a line in the RoF movie to justify his being stronger? Like someone saying "oshit, how did Roshi get this strong" and him saying "what, did you guys think I just watched yoga videos all day?"

    anything?

    I believe Toriyama stated Roshi was always as strong as he was in RoF. He just didn't bother to ever fight seriously.

    Half-assed explanation to be sure, but it proves that he didn't train at all to become as strong as he did in RoF.

    I always wondered why he didn't go into his buff form vs. them but i always assumed it would reduce his speed.

    Sorry, but that's definitely what Toriyama said. It's a statement from him in the Volume of F book.

    This is the best I've got for a link to a direct statement.



    I've also got a post from Herms from Kanzenshuu talking about it.

    huh. I guess he just didn't feel like really fighting when the Earth was threatened by King Piccolo or by the Saiyans. Understandable, I guess.

    The only way to get rid of this plothole is just not letting Roshi fight, replace him with Yamcha.

    Since Gohan is the new whooping boy then Yamcha will finally win a meaningful fight?

    So Roshi just let Raditz and Nappa run rampant because he "didn't feel like" stopping them?

    What kind of bullshit is that? Holy crap, even by Toriyama's standards that's a pretty God-awful excuse and explanation. It's basically a retcon.

    If a new enemy appears that is stronger than Beerus (Tori's Sue Char) don't be surprised if a few weeks later he gives the same bullshit excuse of him "Not feeling like fighting."

    Just wow. >___>

    Its probably one of the few things Ive disliked in the last movies.

    But it can fixed easily if Roshi doesnt fight in DBS.

    It could happen, DBS removed the stupid Trunks/Mai romance.
