Wiz: The finest warriors are never developed on their own. While some are simply molded by their enemies, the best usually seek the wisdom of a master.

Boomstick: Who, for some reason, is a weird old pervert. Like Roshi, turtle hermit and teacher to Dragon Ball's greatest hero.

Wiz: And Jiraiya, the toad sage and instructor to the most famous ninja of all.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

Wiz: Goku is, without a doubt, one of the greatest martial arts champions of all time.

Boomstick: Well, yeah! He's good enough to rival gods, become a Super Saiyan, and even master Ultra Instinct.

Wiz: But he never would've achieved any of it without the guidance of Master Roshi.

Boomstick: A martial artist who's so powerful, there's only one thing in the world that can stop him. Well, uh... two things, really, if you get what I mean.


Roshi tries to grope Launch, who loads and primes a gun in response.

Launch: I know your game, old man, and I don't wanna play!

She fires as Roshi screams.


Boomstick: Anyway, when he was a hip youngin', Roshi studied under the legendary Master Potato.

Wiz: Mutaito.

Boomstick: And a kitty cat! These masters of ass-whooping taught Roshi how to weaponize his own life energy, or ki.

Wiz: Similar to many real-life Chinese martial arts, ki is the vital energy all living beings possess. The stronger and more focused you are, the greater your ki becomes.

Boomstick: Roshi can use his ki to increase his power, pushing past his physical limits with a bunch of awesome techniques. He can fire explosive shots, go buff mode, stun foes with Thunder Shock Surprise, and even seal dangerous enemies away with the Evil Containment Wave.

Wiz: It wasn't long until Roshi refined these techniques and created his own martial arts style: Turtle School.

Boomstick: (to the tune of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme)Creepy old man turtle school, creepy old man turtle school, Roshi in a half shell, he's a turtle!... man.♫ No, it's not about beating people up as slow as you can, like I first thought. Turtle School, or Kame style, includes everything from tricky pressure point combat to a phony drunken style, which, if you ask me, is just a missed opportunity to get wasted.

Wiz: By delivering milk up a mountain, plowing a field with bare hands, working construction with simple tools, and being chased by both sharks and bees, all while wearing a 50-pound shell, Roshi's martial art focuses on breaking "the wall of humanity" in every way. Except for one.


Roshi stands on a railing on Korin Tower, then turns.

Roshi: (translated from Japanese) Oh, I forgot I can't fly!

Korin and Yajirobe collapse in shock.

Wiz: Despite most of his students learning it at some point, flight is actually a technique developed by his rivals, the Crane School. Apparently, Roshi's just been a bit too stubborn to properly learn the skill, even after centuries of experience.

Boomstick: How long has he been doing this?

Wiz: Well, it's a little vague, but thanks to either a pet phoenix he accidentally killed or the mysterious Paradise Herb, he's just shy of 360 years old.

Boomstick: Damn! I'm just impressed he can still get it up for the girls after all that time!

Wiz: Boomstick, that's... Well, I mean yes, I guess medically speaking, it is quite impressive.

Boomstick: Where can I get me some of this paradise grass? I wanna be chasin' tail for centuries.

Wiz: Good luck with that. But with all of those years spent honing his talents, Roshi dedicated 50 of them to developing one revolutionary technique.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, the latter of whom has his hands cupped at his side.

Nothing To Hide

Boomstick: Kame... hame... haaaaaaaa!

He thrusts his arms forward, but nothing happens. Wiz looks at Boomstick's open hands.

Wiz: Anyway...

Boomstick: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Boomstick pops open a beer can and sprays Wiz with it as he shouts this.

Boomstick: Ha-ha! Gotcha!

Wiz: (growls) Anyway...

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: To be honest, "devastating" is an understatement.

Boomstick: Well yeah! He blew up a whole frigging mountain with it!

Wiz: This peak was inspired by the real-life Flaming Mountains in China, standing up to 2,600 feet tall. With this in mind, we can find that to pulverize such a mountain, Roshi's Kamehameha must equal nearly four gigatons of TNT.

Boomstick: But that's small stuff compared to the time he obliterated the entire Moon in about five seconds! That's gotta be worth... what, like, 10, 20 mountains? Wiz, how many mountains make a moon?

Wiz: Well, more like 35 billion. To obliterate the Moon in its entirety, the Kamehameha must have struck it with a force akin to three octillion tons of TNT.

Boomstick: That's, uh, 27 zeroes, by the way. Holy shit! Roshi's also super fast; he can fight an entire battle in a blink of an eye.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Wiz: Which might seem crazy, but Roshi is also able to snatch bullets out of the air that are fired at him from point-blank range.

Boomstick: That gun looks like a British Sten, which can fire up to 600 rounds per minute, at a muzzle velocity of nearly 1,200 feet per second.

Wiz: That means Roshi would have to react to the first bullet within five milliseconds. Additionally, each consecutive bullet would reach him just shy of 17 milliseconds apart. The maximum distance between any given shot looks to be about three feet, which means he would have to be moving at 180 feet per second in order to catch them all.

Boomstick: Ah, if my hands could move that fast, I'd finally stop getting married.

The music abruptly comes to a needle-scratching halt, with the sound of crickets chirping being heard after the fact. Boomstick looks down as Wiz shrugs and gestures in confusion before we cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: This speed is far from his limit, but Roshi's true talent is ensuring his students grow further and further than himself every day. Sadly, Roshi's frailty of age means his body can't always express just how powerful he really is.

Boomstick: And using too much ki energy can cause all sorts of problems, like when his master Pistachio died using the Evil Containment Wave.

Wiz: But while Roshi's pupils may surpass him, he remains one of the smartest fighters on Earth.

Boomstick: He's tough enough to take down dozens of Frieza's soldiers and survived a beat down from an alternate universe wannabe Frieza. He even took a barrage of Death Rays like a champ, the same move that killed Vegeta many, many years ago.

Wiz: And in the Dragon Ball Super manga, Roshi has shown to be so collected in battle, his movements sort of emulate those of Ultra Instinct.

Boomstick: Yeah, that's not technically canon, but it does go to show how far Roshi's training can take him.

Wiz: And it's safe to say that this old, perverted, but genius of a man will never stop training.


Roshi: KAMEHAMEHAAAAA!!!

Wiz: Among the ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village, few are quite as impressive as Naruto Uzumaki.

Boomstick: Yeah, I know that's crazy, 'cause... y'know.


Naruto attempts to make a shadow clone, but fails.


Boomstick: But not just anyone can fight aliens on the Moon and become president of Hidden Valley Ranch.

Wiz: Naruto would become the Hidden Leaf's greatest champion and seventh Hokage, but this would have never been possible without his training under the dynamic Toad Sage and Legendary Sannin, Jiraiya the Gallant.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: "Gallant", huh? Hey Wiz, why do the most badass old dudes always turn out to be weird pervs?

Wiz: Uh, well, don't let his... ahem, crude demeanor fool you.

Boomstick: Oh, don't worry about me, Wiz. This ain't my first trip to Secret Leaf Ninja Town. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Boomstick drinks a beer while Wiz gets an idea; he presses a button on his mechanical arm, and a naked female version of himself appears from smoke akin to Naruto's Sexy Jutsu. Boomstick then looks over to him and bleeds out from the nose in surprise.

Boomstick: WHAT THE FU—

The screen then turns to static before showing a "TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES" card with a drunken Boomstick staggering by a film camera depicted on it.

Ninja Style

Boomstick: Ummmm, anyway... Jiraiya originally learned the shinobi way from the Third Hokage, who taught him how to use his chakra to do ninja magic.

Wiz: Similar to ki, chakra is a form of life energy. In Hindu and Buddhist theologies, chakras are, in simplistic terms, "gates within the human body which can be embraced to achieve enlightenment." However, in the world of Naruto, chakra is used to perform amazing ninja techniques called jutsus.

Boomstick: Gesundheit.

Wiz: Thank you. Like most ninja, Jiraiya learned about four types of jutsus: taijutsu, or hand-to-hand combat, ninjutsu, harnessing chakra as elemental weapons and tools, genjutsu, which covers illusion and mental manipulation, and senjutsu, a method of utilizing naturally occurring energy as an extension of one's self.

Air Strike

Boomstick: Jiraiya mastered as many styles as he could, and even learned one of the greatest ninjutsu attacks out there: the Rasengan. With this, he gathers his chakra into a spinning orb of death modeled off the ultra-destructive Tailed-Beast Bomb, and that thing can wipe out a whole village all at once! And on the weird side, he can sharpen his Twisted Sister mane into a shield like a porcupine and fire the hairs out like a needle gun.

Wiz: Possessing a keen and mischievous mind, Jiraiya spent plenty of time developing brand new techniques, such as the Invisibility Jutsu, which you'd think would be perfect for stealth or assassination missions, but he actually developed it specifically for... uh...

Boomstick: Research! Where else is a self-respecting writer supposed to get his, ahem, "inspiration" from?

Wiz: Clearly, Jiraiya sometimes took his tinkering a bit too far. On one such occasion, he accidentally teleported himself to a mystical land full of giant talking toads.

Boomstick: Wiz, you sure "jutsu" isn't just, like, another name for Crack?

Wiz: After befriending the toads, Jiraiya trained under the sage Fukasaku.

Boomstick: Where he learned a bunch of Fire Release techniques, like the Toad Oil Bullet and Flame Bullet attacks. Now that's one impressive loogie!

Wiz: Jiraiya entered a pact with the toads, learning their ways and summoning them to the field of battle. As his own talents relied on trickery over brute force, such as hiding in shadows and manipulating his opponent's movements, the powerful toads were perfect allies. He can trap his foe inside a toad's throat, transform them into toads for interrogation, or even call a gigantic amphibian warrior to his side.

Boomstick: Like the biggest grump you've ever seen: Gamabunta.


Gamabunta: I'm the wise and powerful Lord Gamabunta, the chief toad, and you're an idiot! Now, SHUT UP!!!!

Boomstick: Ha-ha! Ah, Bunta, you crotchety old toad.

Wiz: And through Fukasaku's teachings, Jiraiya perfected the art of senjutsu. Through their combined efforts, he entered a new mighty form called Sage Mode.

Boomstick: While it takes a long time to get into, Sage Mode Jiraiya can do all sorts of things he couldn't before.

Wiz: Like the unpredictable martial art Frog Kata and a deadly genjutsu: the Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant.

Boomstick: Which sounds weird, so why don't we just call it "You're F***ed Jutsu"? 'Cause if you get caught, your soul is trapped by these big guys — who desperately wanna high five — leaving your physical body totally open to a swift kill.

Wiz: Sage Mode also enhances Jiraiya's other abilities, turning his normal Rasengan into the unstoppable Big Ball Rasengan, which, according to the official databooks, is strong enough to carve away a mountain.

Boomstick: Wiz, he's way more than just a mountain smasher. Jiraiya is quick enough to fight some of the fastest ninja around, like Kakashi and Itachi, some of which are fast enough to intercept lightning.

Wiz: The leader of a lightning bolt moves around 220,000 miles per hour, putting ninja like Jiraiya at speeds of Mach 280.

Boomstick: Now I get why ninja are so awesome. Who needs guns when you're more than a hundred times faster than bullets?

Wiz: While Jiraiya isn't exactly the strongest or fastest ninja around, he's certainly one of the most clever. Over time, he rose to become a legendary ninja and hero of his people, hailed by the honorable title of Sannin.

Boomstick: And he's a gutsy one, like when he used his tricks to take out three of the six members of the emo rock band Pain. Before they tore his arm off, crushed his throat, and impaled him five times.

Wiz: But even while suffering excruciating agony, Jiraiya proved strong enough to power through and send a vital message to his most promising pupil, paving the way for the next generation of heroes before being swept off his feet one last time.

Boomstick: You know, I guess he was a pretty gallant guy after all.


Jiraiya: As you can see, you failed! Jiraiya the Toad Sage falls victim to no woman's charm! Rare beauties fall for me! When you reach the stature I have, ladies worship at your awesomeness!

Master Roshi arrives at a book and scroll store which Jiraiya appears to be selling his famous novels in. He begins looking around the shop.

Roshi: (to himself) Ooh, this store's really close by. Don't know why I missed it.

Jiraiya: Who's this geezer?

Roshi: Hey, fuzz-for-brains!

Roshi arrives at Jiraiya's desk holding one of his adult novels.

Roshi: Where are the pictures? It's just words in here!

Roshi tosses the novel on the ground and begins stomping on it, unintentionally upsetting the author in front of him.

Jiraiya: Pictures? You fool! Words paint a thousand beautiful pictures all by themselves!

The Toad Sage leaps in the air ready to engage in combat with the Turtle Hermit.

Fight season 3

Jiraiya begins by tossing three kunai at his opponent. Roshi dodges one of them and uses his staff to bat away the other. The ninja then comes in and tries punching and kicking the old master and eventually manages to toss Roshi aside using his hair into a bookshelf.

Roshi: Geez, don't take it personally! Not like you wrote the damn thing!

Jiraiya: But I DID!

Jiraiya starts spinning around and sends multiple of his hair towards Roshi. Roshi leaps upwards and uses his staff to aim a charged book towards Jiraiya. The Sanin avoids the book and jumps forward to punch Roshi once more, but Roshi pushes him back towards the door.

Jiraiya then slams his hand on the ground and causes the bookstore to shift to the inside of a toad's body. Roshi tries to move forward, but the sticky floor immobilizes him.

Roshi: The heck is this!?

Jiraiya: You're stuck now, baldy!

As the stomach floor begins to bring the hermit down, Roshi's glasses shine before he starts charging his iconic technique.

Roshi: Kaaaameeee... haaaameeee...

Roshi is completely taken into the sticky ground as he is still preparing his attack. Jiraiya sighs in relief, thinking the fight's over.

Jiraiya: Whew!

However, the old master then sticks his hands from the floor and launches his beam.

Roshi: ...HAAAAAAAA!

A startled Jiraiya uses Needle Jizō to shield himself from the blast. Suddenly on a beach, a frog explodes with the two older masters emerging from the dust. Roshi stumbles on his face before getting back on his feet while Jiraiya lands without issue.

Jiraiya: Shadow Clone Jutsu!

Jiraiya sends multiple clones to attack the old pervert, but Roshi easily takes them out with his moves. He then launches another Kamehameha towards the sea.

Roshi: HAAAA!

One clone gets caught in the blast while the main one appears to avoid it. The Toad Sage then uses the Toad's Oil Bullet technique to cover the sand with oil. Two of Jiraiya's clones toss explosive kunais at Roshi, who frantically avoids the weapons.

The Jiraiya who covered the beach leaps in front of the fleeing Roshi and kicks him into the flames before following up the attack with his signature technique.

Jiraiya: Rasengan!

Using the ball of energy, Jiraiya pushes Roshi across the water all the way to the hermit's home, Kame House. He launches the older brawler into one of the building's walls before preparing his next move.

Jiraiya: Summoning Jutsu!

Gamabunta suddenly appears in the sky and lands on top of Kame House, destroying it.

Gamabunta: Jiraiya, you buffoon! What's this about?

Jiraiya: Hey there! Can you buy me some time?

Jiraiya puts his hands together and prepares his next move.

Gamabunta: What?! I'm not your servant. I'm the Chief Toa— Woah!

Now in his Max Power Form, Roshi lifts the giant toad with one arm.

Roshi: Get... off... my... LAWN!

Roshi launches the gargantuan amphibian high into the sky. Gamabunta quickly turns around and launches his counterattack.

Gamabunta: Water Style: Liquid Bullet!

Roshi grabs a nearby rice cooker with an ofuda seal on it and warps behind the Chief Toad.

Gamabunta: Oh, he's a quick one...

The two warriors land back on the island. Roshi opens the container and lifts up his arms.

Roshi: Evil Containment Wave!

Gamabunta's massive body gets sucked into the small container.

Gamabunta: SCREW YOU, YOU PERVEEEERT!!!!!

Jiraiya is shocked to see his ally captured so easily. Roshi then turns around to face his opponent.

Roshi: Only a coward lets others do their fighting for them!

The God of Martial Arts then punches the Sannin in the gut, but Jiraiya smiles in response.

Jiraiya: You have no idea. I've been back on the beach the whole time!

The shadow clone disappears to Roshi's shock. Back on the beach, the real Jiraiya has entered Sage Mode with Fukasaku and Shima on his shoulders. The two old masters prepare their ultimate techniques.

Roshi: Kaaaameeeee...

Jiraiya: Rasengan!

Roshi: ...Kamehamehaaaaaa!!!

Jiraiya starts running on the water with his Ultra Big Ball Rasengan to negate Roshi's Kamehameha. Roshi suddenly vanishes when the Toad Sage starts getting closer to the island and appears behind Jiraiya.

Roshi: Gotcha!

Roshi starts charging with his fist forward as the two toads on Jiraiya's shoulders begin croaking loudly. The Turtle Hermit finds himself mentally trapped by their genjutsu, the Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant.

Jiraiya: You old fool, I can't believe you fell for that!

Jiraiya walks forward in the illusion wielding his Stone Sword.

Jiraiya: Let's end this!

However, in the real world, the genjutsu did not slow down the momentum of Roshi's punch. Roshi still unknowingly dashes forward and punches Jiraiya so hard it splits the Pervy Sage's body in half. In the genjutsu, Jiraiya's body starts bleeding as he reverts from Sage Mode and begins to feel the impact of the punch.

Jiraiya: Ugh-uh.... wh-... what?

Roshi suddenly awakens from the illusion right before landing in the water. He turns around and sees his opponent's blood trailing behind him. He then makes a peace sign at the camera and starts chuckling.

Boomstick: Talk about a "hole" new way to win!

Wiz: Jiraiya was certainly one of the most powerful warriors of his own world, but there's no question that Roshi's sheer might outclassed him.

Boomstick: One guy can break a mountain, the other can break a moon, so that was pretty obvious.

Wiz: The speed comparison wasn't quite so clear cut, though. While his unseen battle with Krillin was incredibly quick, Roshi's never personally shown speeds as fast as the lightning feats Jiraiya's scaled to.

Boomstick: But he did hold his own in the Tournament of Power against planet and galaxy busters. Also, in Goku's training right after Korin's, he actually had to dodge lightning. Roshi's own training didn't stop after chasing the kitty around, and neither did his kitty chasing. So, scaled to Goku's progress, it makes sense that he'd be able to match Jiraiya's speed, and probably even surpass it.

Wiz: Still, it would be reasonable to believe Jiraiya could use his tactical talent to outsmart and outlast Roshi.

Boomstick: Except Roshi's a smart fighter, too. Not only does he have way more experience thanks to his super age, but he's got an eye for traps and sticky situations, like when he figured out the illusion powers of the talisman fighter Dercori.

Wiz: And remember, it took only 15 seconds for Roshi's Kamehameha to reach the Moon. Given the Moon's distance of over 200,000 miles from the surface of the Earth, this means the beam must have traveled over 57 million miles per hour, more than 260 times faster than lighting. There was no way Jiraiya could avoid Roshi's trademark move for very long.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: Sure, Jiraiya might be a crafty ninja, but all that doesn't boil down to much more than tricks against someone like Roshi.

Wiz: Roshi was simply faster, stronger, and had way more experience.

Boomstick: And that's why Jiraiya croaked when Roshi beat him to the punch.

Boomstick punches Wiz, causing him to fall to the floor before we cut to the "Winner" card.

Wiz: The winner is Master Roshi.

Turtle and Toad HQ

Composition

The track for this fight is "Turtle and Toad" by Therewolf Media. It is a fast-paced battle track that alternates between the Japanese shamisen and the Hawaiian ukulele. These two different styles represent both combatants, as the shamisen is used in various musical tracks in the Naruto anime, while the ukulele references some of Roshi's techniques and island lifestyle.

Title

The title references the animals both combatants based their fighting styles on; Roshi's martial art is known as Turtle School, while Jiraiya is known as the Toad Sage for his training and knowledge of toad-related jutsus.

Cover Art

The cover art done by Luis Cruz depicts Roshi's sunglasses shining with two kanjis representing each fighter on the two lenses; the left lens has Roshi's kanji, "kame" (亀), which means "turtle", while the right lens has Jiraiya's kanji, "abura" (油), which means "oil".

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Master Roshi and Jiraiya are that they are both iconic, elderly anime martial arts masters who are massive perverts and themed around an animal (a turtle and a toad, respectively). Both also trained their series' orange-clad main protagonists (Goku and Naruto, respectively), while not to their current peak of strength, but to an important level, and taught them their signature techniques which consist of a blue energy attack (the Kamehameha and the Rasengan, respectively). Both were also trained by anthropomorphic animals (Korin and Fukasaku, respectively) and had a very famous mentor (Master Mutaito and Hiruzen Sarutobi, respectively) who died while trying to stop their respective series' original main antagonists (Demon King Piccolo and Orochimaru, respectively). Both also have a super form (Max Power and Sage Mode, respectively). Both have also sacrificed their lives in an attempt to defeat a major villain (Demon King Piccolo and Pain, respectively).
  • The crew confirmed that they are aware that Yamcha was, in fact, a student of Master Roshi, but he was excluded from the list of "Notable Students" in his "Background" slide because Yamcha did not train under Master Roshi to the same extent as the technically weaker Ox-King and Grandpa Gohan.

Easter Eggs

  • Boomstick says "Gesundheit" after Wiz first mentions jutsus. This is a call-back to a near-identical joke done before in Naruto VS Ichigo.

Errors

  • Gamabunta's sprite is mirrored in the scene where he shoots his Liquid Bullet at Master Roshi.
  • After using Instant Transmission to avoid Jiraiya's Big Ball Rasengan, Roshi lunges towards him with his left arm outstretched. However, all subsequent shots of Roshi flying toward Jiraiya have his right arm outstretched instead up until after Jiraiya is punched in half, where his left arm is the outstretched one once again.
