A Taste of Destiny (生きていた亀仙人!? Ikite Ita Kame-sen'nin!?, lit. "Is the Turtle Hermit Alive!?") is the fifteenth episode of the King Piccolo Saga and the one hundred sixteenth episode in the Dragon Ball series. The episode first aired on June 22, 1988.



"Roshi" confronts Goku

As Yajirobe and Goku press on, they go their separate ways. Goku meets "Master Roshi" and is taken to the "Kame House", in the middle of the labyrinth, where all his friends await him. The "Dragon Ball Gang" that Goku encounters in the "Kame House" have a distinguishable speech. For example, they pronounce every individual word (almost robotically) and they have a slightly altered accent compared to their real counterparts. Something does not seem right to Goku, and he realizes all this is an illusion to bait him into danger and this Roshi is a fraud.

Yajirobe falls onto Goku and they both fall off a cliff clinging for their lives. With effort, Goku stays put, even as Roshi injures him. Satisfied, Darkness meets with Goku and warns him the possibility of death from drinking the Ultra Divine Water if he is not fit for it. Goku takes the risk and drinks the water getting feeling excruciating pain. Meanwhile, King Piccolo broadcasts that criminals are free to reign in the world.


  • Most of this episode is filler, except for the part when Yajirobe and Goku drink the Ultra Divine Water and King Piccolo's speech.
