Sifu Norris (シフ・ノリス Sifu Norisu) is a character in the 2009 film Dragonball Evolution. He seems to be the movie's version of Master Mutaito, the teacher of Master Roshi in Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball franchise, and is portrayed by Ernie Hudson.



Roshi and Sifu Norris

During his travels with Goku and Bulma, Roshi comes to the temple of his former master, Sifu Norris. Roshi consults Sifu Norris about the return of Lord Piccolo and Oozaru.


  • While Master Mutaito's counterpart is Asian in Akira Toriyama's franchise, he is depicted as African in Dragonball Evolution. This is similar to the race alterations of Staff Officer Black in the 1996 film The Path to Power, where unlike his manga and anime counterpart, he was depicted as Hispanic rather than African. His name is also changed from Mutaito to Sifu Norris.
  • It can possibly be conjectured that this version of Mutaito could also be a loosely blended version of Mr. Popo due to his clothing similarity.
