This is going to be a very stupid thread, be warned but I would like to know why in the world he is wearing glasses!?

I mean if he has some kind of vision issue, why not just ask Shenron to fix it? It seems very inconvenient to be a fighter AND wear glasses. Maybe I am overthinking this...

I am sure it comes down to them wanting him to look like a bookworm but this is a bit of a stereotypical thing to do. Not all bookworms or "smart people" wear glasses I also know this doesn't pertain to just Dragon Ball Super as he wore the glasses before in DBZ. Maybe it works with his Saiyaman angle. Like a play on the Clark Kent and Superman thing?

I think it is more or less to establish him as the father and scholar. Glasses make him appear more intelligent and more about the books and family life. I do like that idea of it playing with the Saiyaman thing but I don't remember him wearing glasses before Super, I could be wrong.

Yeah it was definitely a design thing to show him as a nerdy scholar and non-fighter. God, I really hate what they did to this character. He has so much potential.

During the whole Android saga and Cell Games, he overtook Vegeta for me which is hard to do. I absolutely loved him facing Cell.

Absolutely. That was one of my favorite moments. I didn't really notice when he was training with Goku other than when Goku acted surprised (Apparently his hair kind of changed into SSJ2 hair for a brief moment). When Cell crushed 16's head and instructed his Cell Jr's to take out the others...that moment when Gohan just lost all control and let loose...that was just an incredible moment. I miss those days of teen Gohan.

The real question was what was up with Roshi's sunglasses. He wore them all the time. Only times he didn't was when he was Jackie Chun, or when someone stole them like Goku... Or Krillin.

Part of me thinks that was because he was/is a pervert and women couldn't see where his eyes were looking though he hardly hid it with his expressions. lol
