* Played with in ''MarchenAwakensRomance''. After Gaira's {{training from hell}} that he puts Ginta and Jack through, Alvis asks for a showing of their power now. He takes two stones and fires them towards the two from behind. Ginta, intelligently moves out of the way, impressing Alvis. Jack instead grabs the stone out of the air. He then is seen rolling on the ground because the stone injured his hand. Alvis notes the power increase, but notes that Jack is still an idiot.

** And also, Master Roshi and the big boulder. True to ''Dragon Ball'''s comedic nature before ''Z'', when Goku and Krillin both prove themselves able to move it after going through Master Roshi's training, he told them that he hadn't expected them to be able to move it.

** [[FridgeBrilliance This actually makes perfect sense]] on top of being hilarious. Martial arts are more about discipline than beating the shit out of everything in sight.
