Paradise Herb (極楽草 Gokuraku Sou, lit. Paradise Grass) is an herb found only in the Forest of Terror. It can apparently increase a person's lifespan as, after eating some of it, Master Roshi claims he can live on for another 1,000 years.


Master Roshi sends Goku and Krillin to retrieve the herb, coercing them by saying he will teach them a secret skill to instantly boost their energy (however this was a lie meant to motivate them). When the two enter the Forest of Terror, they become victims of the forest's ways by fighting illusions of many of their past opponents. Upon defeating them and the illusion of Super Shenron (created by Fortuneteller Baba, who Master Roshi asked to participate), many herbs of the Paradise Grass soon grow, and Goku and Krillin pick them to deliver to Master Roshi.


  • It is implied during the episode that the Grass is the source for Roshi's apparent superhuman longevity, as he'd been alive for three hundred years during the early chapters of Dragon Ball.
    • The reveal of the Paradise Herb seems to suggest that the Immortal Phoenix mentioned by Roshi and Turtle was not the source of Roshi's immortality, as was originally suggested (though not outright stated) in the Emperor Pilaf Saga.
