** Even [[LackOfEmpathy Frieza]] acknowledges how CrazyAwesome this act of a lone lower class soldier charging was by [[VillainRespect always remembering him]] as his instant thought upon seeing Goku is recalling possibly the only person that made a impact among the billions he he had killed, through uncanny resemblance. Yes, Bardock is so awesome that the BigBad remembers him.

* Frieza gets one before he physically does anything amazing. When Vegeta arrives on Namek, he shows off how badss he has becomes from nearly being killed on Earth by easily taking out Cui, a person who was once his equal. Even then, Vegeta still wants nothing to do with Frieza until he becomes an immortal. Repeat, ''Vegeta'' knew he stood no chance and only godhood could make him a match for his former boss.

* Until Beerus came along, he was the only villain in the entire series to outright [[TheBadGuyWins win]]. Despite all the curve balls Goku and Roshi threw into his plan, he still got everything he wanted. He is also one of the only villains, along with Super and Kid Buu, to never carry the VillainBall. He only lost in the end because he didn't take into account that Goku wasn't human and he had no way of knowing that.
* The way he took over the planet: as soon as he was above the capital he jumped down the airship, casually landed, and strolled inside the king's castle while easily smacking around anyone and anything that tried to stop him on his way to capture the king. The only thing that even slowed him down was [[VillainRespect his own appreciation for the courage and strength of a soldier who dared to challenge him to a fistfight even as he understood he was using ki]], and even then it was only long enough to offer him a job in his new regime and kill him when he refused.

refused. And he did it in the middle of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the king's coronation.

* During the search for the Dragon Balls in King Piccolo's arc, Muten Roshi, Tenshinhan and Chaotzu have tracked one to a group of land pirates that decide to kill them, and open fire with dozens of automatic rifles. When the smoke fades, Chaotzu has blocked every single bullet mid-air, and the other two have knocked out the other pirates except their leader, who tries to shoot again-and then realizes that the gun Ten is holding is ''his''. [[KnowWhenToFoldEm The pirate boss quickly hands over the Dragon Ball]].

* What, no entry for Creator/MasakoNozawa here? By the time ''Super'' aired she had gone to her eighties, YET she continues to reprise her role for [[TalkingToHimself the Son family]] '''AND''' Goku Black without much trouble. She is not a LivingLegend for nothing.

** Later Krillin was able to give Goku a decent fight, even getting more than a few blows in. He successfully fools Goku with a Kamehameha to distract him while he grabs his tail. If this was a couple of years ago, Goku would have lost right there. Also, for what its worth, showing his willingness to make use of every weakness he can find - and snagging Goku by the tail when the opportunity presents itself (it doesn't do him much good as Goku proves to have trained to fix that problem, but credit where due), even Roshi shows some respect for the move calling out Goku for being too naïve in a fight.

* Jackie Chan's first battle in the second phase of both the 21st and 22nd Tenkaichi show just how much Muten Roshi outclasses normal opponents. In the 21st Yamcha, who had trained for months after stopping being a bandit, couldn't even ''touch him'' before being thrown out, and in the 22nd Man-Wolf, who could fell a tree with a kick, was so completely humiliated that it couldn't even get called a CurbStompBattle.

** The most awesome moment: the ''way'' he lost to Tenshinhan. After an equal fight and being told again and again to do a HeelFaceTurn, Tenshinhan had just shown his ability to learn the Kamehameha by seeing it done, and Jackie first congratulated his skills and then jumped out of the ring, grabbed his jacket, and left without stopping or saying anything except to tell a man he was stomping the skirt of a little girl and make the girl laugh. That simple action, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood that no Crane School member could understand]] (and the Crane Hermit attributed to the Turtle Hermit being scared. Ten knew better), sent Tenshinhan in a VillainousBreakdown that would lead to his HeelFaceTurn.

* On the subject of the Goku-Jackie Chun match, in one issue of the US Shonen Jump, it was voted the best battle in the series. Both Goku and Chun pull out every move they had up until then, Chun coming very close to winning twice before the end; the first time he hypnotized Goku into falling asleep (foiled by Bulma shouting "Dinner time!") and then trapping Goku in a cage of lightning (more or less), which Goku could only escape from by seeing the moon and transforming. Chun stops Oozaru-Goku by wiping out ''the moon'', and in the end the match is decided by a CrossCounter in which Chun prevails by having a ''slightly'' deeper kick than Goku.

** His fight with Tenshinhan at the 22nd tournament starts with his stronger opponent being ''thrown out of the ring''. Had he not been able to fly, poor Tenshinhan would have lost then and there to the old master's superior skills.
