Why can't he fly? Even krillin knows how to fly
Flying is crane school technique.
Because he doesnt care enough to learn.
It's been established that he could be stronger than he is if he wasn't so lazy. To the point that if he did put in the effort, he would've easily been able to Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta during the Saiyan Saga
The new generation set a higher bar than the old one even though the old one set the bar first.
how is that supposed to be consistent with the fact that his entire discipline is gaining superhuman powers just by carrying out unnecessarily heavy shit around all day?
isn't his own shell like hundreds of kilos or something?
if he flew he couldn't see under the skirts of women.
Nope. The shell he carries around all the time is only 40 Kg. Mugi from K-on carries roughly as much around once you add up her keyboard(27 kg IIRC) and school stuff(school books are heavy).
He wasn't lazy, you absolute retard.
Just fucking stop.
Because he became irrelevant after Z.
Fly consumes ,MC energy and roshi is a supporting ccharacter.
the meta evolved
Because it wasn't a ordinary thing back them and now he is just to old to mind. The real answer is that it was never meant to be a thing, see Kinto'un, but the necessity of moving fights to different areas and one upping the power levels made it so.
I always thought it was because he simply didn't have the amount of ki and the talent with it to do the move
Why learning to fly when he can just use his turtle?
Flying is a Crane School technique, and while his students were happy to adopt it, he refuses to use it out of pride.
He was able to fight off Frieza's goons in Resurrection F, he has the ki to fly. He just never learned how.
Why doesn't he use the dragon balls to make himself younger?
Probably because that was one of the signature techniques of his rival martial arts school.
That's just bullshit, Roshi trained hard for the 22nd Budokai and he was still powerless against Piccolo.
Why can't this decrepit 150-year-old geezer fly? Even the most powerful human in all of existence knows how to fly.
I feel like the comparison is unfair to both characters.
Even the most powerful human in all of existence
Thread should have ended here, why are people still replying?
For what purpose? He has his animal buddy.
harder to see ass and titties when you're up in the sky
Why didn't he learn to move faster than girls can perceive in order to become invisible?
he's more of a molester than an ogler
Can someone dump the latest DBS chapter?
This went to shit the moment flying and faster than light punching were introduced.
What happened to all the furries?
I mean president of the world is an anthro dog
Probably the most plausible answer.
But well, if I have to be serious one second there are two -probable and logical- options.
1. He doesn't want to learn it because it's a Crane School technic.
2. Toriyama forgot him and didn't bother making a few pages in which he'd explain that he actually learnt to fly.
The strongest Earthling warrior, who became a pupil of Kame-Sen’nin’s with Goku, and who has fought together with him in numerous life-or-death battles. Now he patrols the town as a police officer.

Let's be real here, if you think Krillin is stronger than Tenshinhan during the Android Saga or later, you are an idiot.
This. Tien was able to hold off Cell second form for a bit.
Explain your reasoning then.
When Krillin got his potentially unlocked, his power level was way over 23,000 because that is how strong Ginyu inside of Goku's body was, and Krillin didn't have a problem with him. Vegeta later mentions that his power level was still rising even during the fight with Freeza.
Goku's power level after training with King Kai was a little over 8000. So I highly doubt Tien could have been much higher than that after he trained with King Kai, considering Goku is a saiyan and would grow much faster than Tien. Although Tien was stronger than Goku when he came to the planet, so he probably ended up around 10,000.
So at the end of the Frieza saga, Krillin was more than likely over 3 times as strong as Tien, I really don't see how he could close that gap during the Android/Cell saga. Krillin also trained for the Androids, meaning they should have grown at about the same rate.
his power level
And? He didn't hurt him, he just stunned him because that is how his Tri Beam works.
Android 16 couldn't even hold of Cell, are you saying Tien is stronger than Android 16? Even though 17 one shotted Tien the previous day?
How useless Roshi must feel when a fucking toddler can fly and could be stronger than him?
able to beat Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta
What are you smoking?
Tien was already on par, if not even slightly stronger than him during the second tournament and he was completely powerless against Nappa.
Could she take on Cell?

Was it ever explained why Goku could just fly all of a sudden?
He didn't fly once during DB, even though Krillin already did and even at the beginning of Z he has been using his Nimbus for a while. It wasn't until the Radditz fight where he suddenly just started flying.
God this thread is filled with retards
He never actually flies during either of the Piccolo fights though.
a toddler bred from the sperm of a super saiyan 2
Roshi is heavily implied to be as powerful as Nappa at 100% max power trying.
He does have infinite youth.
What the fuck do you think is on that page? The Bukujutsu is the flying technique. Piccolo broke all four of Goku's limbs, so he had no choice but to fly.
I'm more surprised at Videl not being able to shoot her ki.
Most character have been able to do kikoha before bukujutsu, because the later seems to require more skills.
Goku is a genius at copying techniques. He perfectly replicated the Kamehameha after only seeing it once. He'd fought several people who could fly during DB, and even then, he still preferred to use the magic cloud up through the Saiyan arc.
Well, you're right about all of that. But power levels grew depending on the plot (like training before the Saiyans came). 42,000 Nail thought Piccolo after Kaio's "training" was strong, strong enough to beat Freeza if fused with Kami. That's like anywhere from 3,000 to 250,000...
