Training Island[2] (修行の島) is an island south of Kame House. It is where Master Roshi takes his students to train because his smaller island is not enough to accommodate their needs. Master Roshi has his house transported by capsule from his small, isolated island to this larger one.

Overview[]

Dragon Ball Fighters DB Ep 18 001

Kame House on Training Island

The island is populated with at least 300 people, according to Master Roshi. It is also fairly large, since Goku and Krillin run several kilometers delivering milk. A jungle with many animals living in it is found on the island; it is in this jungle that Master Roshi throws a rock for Goku and Krillin to find.[3] There is also a large sandy region.[4] Also on the island is a small volcano with a constant plume of puffy smoke.

Goku and Krillin spend eight months on the island before the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, doing "training" like delivering milk across the whole island, moving dirt, swimming, dodging bees, and schoolwork, which actually helps to fortify their muscles and minds at the same time. Krillin returned there with Yamcha, doing training before the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament.

Video Game Appearances[]

In Advanced Adventure, it is named Island of Training and featured as a side scrolling stage, reenacting the competition between Goku and Krillin to find the rock with Roshi's signature on it.

In Origins, Roshi brings Goku and Krillin here for their training. Notably, must defeat a giant crab who terrorizes the population of the island.

Training Island Arrival

The Training Island cave in Attack of the Saiyans

In Attack of the Saiyans, it is featured as the first area with monsters, and is shown to be a cave. They are all very weak monsters, however at the time of going there, they are seemingly strong. As a graduation test, Master Roshi tells Krillin, Yamcha, and Tien Shinhan to find his Crystal Ball (a gift from his sister). They get there, only to be confronted by Jackie Chun (Roshi in disguise). After defeating him, they take the ball back to Roshi's house, who gives it to his students. Enemies encountered here are Giant Snake, Raider, RR Deserter, RR Ex-Sergeant, and Lantern Ghost.

In Dragon Ball Online, in Age 821 Krillin founds the New Turtle School on the Training Island where he and Goku had trained as children which is suggested to have been chosen by Krillin as an expression of his competitive spirit. Such beliefs continued to be carried by members of the "Turtle Hermit" class, even after Krillin's death.
