It's The Real-Life Master Roshi

This is pro bodybuilder Nhon Ly. He’s better known by his Instagram handle @master_roshi_real_life and for good reason.

Previously, Kotaku introduced body builder Taichi Shimizu who pulled off the Dragon Ball character with real muscles and fake facial hair.


Nhon Ly doesn’t need a phony bread! As Karapaia points out, he certainly does resemble the Dragon Ball character and plays up the comparisons, wearing “Master Roshi” shirts and sporting Roshi-like shades.


Goodness, it’s Max Power, but for real!
