Dragon Ball Wiki

Sunglasses (サングラス Sangurasu) are items worn by several characters in the Dragon Ball series.


Vodka and his bodyguards, as well as Pamput while with them, all wear sunglasses because of their respective occupations (manager, bodyguards, and actor).

Roshi's sunglasses are proven useful when used by Goku during the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament, allowing him to counter Tien Shinhan's Solar Flare.[1] Goku would later "borrow" Roshi's Sunglasses during the Trunks Saga to use as proof of his teleportation via Instant Transmission while demonstrating the technique to his friends. Afterwards he gave them to Krillin to give back to Master Roshi. Roshi's sunglasses are also used by several other characters later in the series, such as Krillin and Maron.

A mother with sunglasses makes several minor appearances in the series, most often in West City.


North and South Kai's sunglasses

King Kai wears black Teashade sunglasses, East Kai wears red Jackie Ohh sunglasses, South Kai wears white Jackie Ohh sunglasses, and Grand Kai wears black Wayfarer sunglasses.

The item is part of Gohan's second Great Saiyaman costume, for which the helmet was swapped out in favor of a white bandana and sunglasses due to the rules of the World Martial Arts Tournament.

Barry Kahn is seen wearing sunglasses when being swarmed by paparazzi while working on the 2nd Great Saiyaman Film.


Ultimate Godslayer Hearts wearing his visor in Super Dragon Ball Heroes

Hearts of the Core Area Warriors usually wears sun visor which is capable of handling the power of his Super Hearts form and even the immense power of his Ultimate Godslayer form which grants him power that he believes would allow him to defeat Zeno and Future Zeno. As an adult, Fu wears sunglasses with tinted yellow lens and round frames during the Prison Planet Saga. During the Universe Creation Saga, Fu wears sunglasses with tinted yellow lens and rectangular frames.

What appear to be sunglasses are also on the helmet worn by the Imeckian Army and Police. Also in Dragon Ball GT, Goku, Pan and Trunks briefly use sunglasses when arriving on Rudeeze. Ronge, who is the fourth human possessed by Baby on Earth, wears sunglasses. As an old lady, Pan constantly wears sunglasses.

Roshi's "Scan Mode" in Bojack Unbound

In Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound, Roshi's sunglasses seem to have some scanner equipment built in similar to the Android's 3D Scan Mode. Unfortunately, Roshi eyes end up comically bulging out inadvertently breaking the lens after noticing several cute ladies in the crowd using his Scan Mode, which is shown to be able to calculate a ladies' measurements in a manner similar to how a Scouter can read power levels.

In Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Magenta's chauffeur Carmine wears glasses with tinted lens which apparently double as sunglasses which makes sense Carmine's occupation.
