Immortal Phoenix 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".

Emperor Pilaf Saga[]

Main article: 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".[1] Master Roshi instead gives him the Flying Nimbus as a gift for his philanthropy.


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 Dragon Ball Super. However, it may not be a contradiction as it wasn't explicitly stated that the Phoenix was the source of Roshi's immortality.
