Dragon Ball Wiki

Immortal Phoenix (不死鳥 Fushichō) is an unseen pet bird kept by Master Roshi.



At some point, the Immortal Phoenix was acquired by Master Roshi. The Immortal Phoenix would later die after Roshi fed it "tainted bird seeds".[1]

Emperor Pilaf Saga[]

Initially, Roshi proposes the Phoenix bestow a young Goku with immortality as a reward for escorting Turtle to the sea, but this is cut short by Turtle's reminder to Roshi that the Immortal Phoenix ironically died from being fed "tainted bird seed". Master Roshi instead gives him the Flying Nimbus as a gift for his philanthropy.[1]

Film appearances[]

The Path to Power[]

Like in the main series, Roshi calls the Phoenix to reward the Dragon Team after they escorted Turtle to the sea, but the Phoenix didn't appear, and Turtle reminds that the bird died one year ago.


The Immortal Phoenix is allegedly capable of granting biological immortality (which curiously is one of the leading causes for why many villains in the series seek the seven Dragon Balls).


  • The notion that the Immortal Phoenix gave Roshi his immortality is seemingly contradicted by the reveal of the Paradise Herb in the Dragon Ball Super anime.
